* I received a copy of this book from Breathless Press in exchange for an honest review*

The sexy biker, Reefer, gave Sarah an hour’s worth of sex in a kiss that lasted no more than ten seconds. He knocked her world off kilter; but little did he know, he’d set directly on target for his heart.

Sarah always dreamed of joining a motorcycle gang and hitting the open road. What better way to escape a troubled childhood filled with poverty and alcoholism than to ride out and live a gypsy lifestyle? Her life changed the morning a biker stopped in the middle of the road and asked if she wanted a ride.

Reefer had two rules: don’t mess around with women who didn’t grow up riding the road, and his biker family always came first. Nothing prepared him for the woman who hopped onto the back of his Harley with the ease of a born rider and peeled back the layers of his sealed heart.

Two people running from a world full of hurt. Can they escape to find happiness or will they have to first revisit the past?

Sarah grew up on the reservation with an alcoholic father.  She has left the reservation and has sworn to never go back.  She has dreamed of hitting the open road for as long as she can remember; her patient Ellen has only added fuel to the fire as she shares stories of her time riding with a motorcycle gang.  When given the choice to leave with the “end man” of the Chrome and Wheels gang, will she take him up on his offer of the open roads?

Reefer misses his best friend Margie since she has put down roots with her new family.  He has grown up on the road with the Wheels and Chrome gang and has vowed to never give his heart to anyone that isn’t part of his world.  He never expected someone like Sarah to walk into his life and steal his heart.

Sarah has overcome a lot in her young life.  She now devotes her time as a home health nurse but dreams of so much more.  She wants to leave when Reefer gives her the choice but she is concerned about leaving her patients.  He wants her to be sure that she isn’t going to regret the decision to leave.

Reefer is a complex man.  We were introduced to him in Biker Babe and you couldn’t help but fall for him.  He has grown up on the road without his mother and resents her deserting him.  He has hardened his heart and vows he won’t settle down with anyone unless they are part of his family.  He never expected someone like Sarah to break through his defenses.  She makes him smile and he sees things through fresh eyes while they are on the road but he never expected betrayal from her.

These two are good for each other.  They both have had rough childhoods and grew up without mothers.  She envies the life he has lived and wants to be a part of his world.  She allows him to see the world through fresh eyes and it gives him a new perspective on life.  They are complex and interesting characters that have you pulling for them to work things out.

This was a fun book with lots of interesting characters.  It was nice to learn more about the Chrome and Wheels gang that Margie came from.  They are a close knit group that looks out for one another.  Their acceptance of Sarah was nice to see since they don’t let strangers into their group very often.  I also loved the twist at the end, it was very well done.

Overall I really enjoyed the 2nd installment in the Chrome and Wheels series and would love to see more books in this series.  I give Ride Free 4 Flaming Hearts.
