The New York Times bestselling author of Vicious Cycle plunges readers into a world of danger and desire in her newest in the Vicious Cycle motorcycle club romance series.

Looking for a walk on the wild side, Annabel Percy, the daughter of a powerful politician, starts dating a biker she knows is completely wrong for her. But she finds herself living a nightmare when she’s kidnapped and transported into a hell on earth she never could have imagined.

Born and bred into the Hells Raiders MC, Nathaniel “Reverend” Malloy lives and dies for his brothers. But when he becomes the unexpected savior of a rival club’s captive, Rev makes it his personal mission to nurse Annabel back to health—and to shelter her from the nightmares that torment her.

Once Annabel heals, she’s stunned to realize she is falling for the seductive man who saved her. Faced with their impossible attraction, can she accept the life he leads, or will Rev walk away from the only life he’s ever known for the woman he was never supposed to love?

Kristen Ashley pulls out all stops with her next hit in the Vicious Cycle Series. Redemption Road is a novel about just that. How many paths does one take to find the redemption they feel they need to find peace?

Annabel just needed a change of pace. Something to spice her world up a bit. Big, bad biker? Sure why not. Doesn't really matter that she knows he's the wrong guy for her, she's just out for a bit of fun. Annabel never thought she'd end up where she did, in the trouble that she currently faces. And she never dreamed of being rescued by him.

Rev is the unlikely hero here. Not only is he Annabel's savior and her nurse, he's also her guide - he's been there. He understands what she's going through. An unlikely bond is formed and their attraction is magnetic. A beautiful, no longer innocent, politicians daughter & a newly appraised president of the MC. The question is how they will manage to stay together in a world tearing them a part.

Kristen Ashley needs no plug from me. She once again creates these beautifully dark, deep characters that can tear your heart out and make you sing all at the same time. Redemption Road will make you cry, but it will also make you wonder. A roller coaster of a ride. Can not wait for book 3.

The agonizing consequences to live a night on the wild side.
Annabell sees a hot biker and wants to take a ride she's never taken before.
She didn't know what was to come.

Rev, aka Reverend, has secrets he's only told 2 people in his life.
A past he was ashamed of.
When he is called up to help recover a brothers daughter, the past comes back to haunt him.

This is a dark and emotional read! Katie Ashley pulled at my heart strings through this
entire book. To see a man go through the horrible life Rev has lived and to show that
men do suffer the same, was as emotional and raw as it gets.

“What are you doing?”
“Getting you into the shower.” At what must’ve been my
skeptical expression, he added, “It’s the fastest way to get you warm.”
“I see,” I murmured.
He made quick work of turning on the water and testing it
with his fingers. When it seemed to his satisfaction, he turned back to me. I
still sat on the toilet, shivering and trembling.
We stared at each other for a moment. Rev jerked a hand
through his hair. “Yeah, uh, I guess I better let you get in now.”
When he started to go, I grabbed his arm. “Wait. I need help
getting out of this dress.”
His eyes flared at my request. It wasn’t a come-on in
disguise. I had needed the help of one of our maids earlier tonight to get it
zipped. Instead of asking me to stand up, Rev bent over my back, bringing his
hands to the zipper. Slowly, he tugged it down.
As the front gaped open, I didn’t bother trying to cover
Rev’s hands momentarily faltered, and when I looked up, I
met his gaze, which was staring at my bare breasts. I hadn’t needed to wear a
bra because of the tight-fitting bodice. He cleared his throat several times,
then tugged the zipper the rest of the way down.
There was not a doubt in my mind, heart, or body about how
much I wanted him. I knew he expected me to want to take things slow in the sex
department, but that’s not how I felt. Regardless of the ghosts of the past, I
wanted him more than I had ever wanted any man. I wanted him to be the one who
proved to me that sex was physically and emotionally safe. That it could be a
loving act between two consenting people.
But with the roller coaster of feelings rocketing through
me, it was more about an all-consuming lust and desire.
When Rev stepped back from me, I rose to my feet. The dress
slid down my body
and pooled at my feet, leaving me in only my panties. Both
empowerment and vulnerability raced through me.
“Rev, I want you to look at me.” He shook his head and kept
his gaze on the floor. “I said I want you to look at me,” I repeated.
“That’s not what this is about. It’s about you getting warm
before you catch pneumonia,” he countered.
“I could care less about getting sick. Right now what I care
about is seeing the man I love want me sexually. To look at me like he wants to
devour me.”
His eyes, which burned with lust and unfilled desire,
snapped to mine. “How can you ever doubt even for a second how I feel about
I threw my hands up. “Because I’m standing practically naked
before you and you won’t fucking look at me!”
“We’re both teetering at the edge of uncharted territory.
After everything you’ve been through, I would rather die than hurt you.” “You
hurt me more when you won’t look at me or touch me,” I protested.
With an agonized sigh, Rev finally allowed his gaze to rake
down my body. There was no feeling of embarrassment or inadequacy. Just the
look on his face warmed me from head to toe. “You’re so beautiful,” he
Tears stung my eyes from his adoration. “I am?” I
He smiled. “Every inch of you.”
