Office Mate by Katie Ashley
Office Mate - Katie Ashley

 

It's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. Cliches are dime a dozen, but this one is rooted in truth. Katie Ashley takes those words to heart and has a bit of fun along the way. Office Mate begins with a love, hate type of relationship. Thorn is a wild card. He has the looks, was born into the name, yet is more than just the gun toting playboy, he's assumed to be. In a world where image is everything, he's a lost little boy struggling to find his footing. Isabel is his ticket to the big time. She has the brains to make things happen and the looks to stop a man in his tracks, As woman, working her way up in a man's world, she has a lot to prove and will let nothing stand in her way. That is until she gets to know the man behind the ego and loses her heart in the process. Office Mate removes the kid gloves and gets to the main event. Ashley is quick with the wit and sends up the sparks in a tempting bundle of love.

Jacob's Ladder: Eli
Jacob's Ladder: Eli - Katie Ashley Tragedy is the beginning. What began as a shoulder to cry on after a devastating loss, takes a long standing friendship in a surprising direction. Katie Ashley finds inspiration within the most heartbreaking of circumstances. Emersyn and Eli are soulmates. Friendship has created a bond not easily broken, but emotionally draining. When life gets in the way, fate has a way of coming full circle. Eli is a gateway to second chances. It's a heartbreaking, uplifting, fine tuned love song that began as a solo, but was destined to be a duet.

Jacob's Ladder: Gabe (Jacob's Ladder) by Katie Ashley
Jacob's Ladder: Gabe - Katie Ashley

 

He's a rock star, with the world at his feet.  She's a single mother and business owner working to make ends meet.  Gabe and Rae come from different worlds, but they have one thing in common.  Responsibility.  He has a band that counts on his talent with words to keep the fans happy and the money coming in.  She has a family relying on her to keep the business in the red.  Neither has the time for romance, but a chance meeting strikes a chord to the heart.  I love a good fairy tale and Ms. Ashley delivered a bit of that with Gabe and Rae.  She also went beyond the superficial by giving both characters a depth that is sometimes lacking in romance.

Running Mate
Running Mate - Katie Ashley Running Mate - Katie Ashley A cute story of two people who hate each other and end up falling in love. Some nice steamy bits but nothing that takes away from the overall story.

Last Mile (Vicious Cycle #3) by Katie Ashley
Last Mile: A Vicious Cycle Novel by Ashley, Katie(May 3, 2016) Paperback - Katie Ashley

After her father was murdered in the line of duty, ATF agent Samantha Vargas is determined to take down the scumbags of the drug trade. When her partner takes on a case to infiltrate the Hells Raiders MC, Samantha agrees to go undercover as his old lady but is surprised to find herself drawn to the very man she is investigating.

Benjamin “Bishop” Malloy has worked hard to carve a place for himself both in and out of the MC world. Working days as a mechanic, he spends his nights rebuilding motorcycles with the hope of one day owning his own shop. After taking one of the club’s new hang-arounds under his wing, Bishop is conflicted over his growing attraction for the man’s girlfriend.

Even though she’s determined to bring down the Raiders, Samantha discovers their world isn’t as black-and-white as she thought. And as the stakes grow higher, she’s in danger of losing more than her heart.

 

 

 

 

 

My Review:

 

 

This is a prime romance example of what happens when the heroine deludes herself into thinking the MC guys are sweet and innocent as they want to believe they are.

You get the good guy bad guy or in this case good girl bad guy dynamic and her need to justify her attraction to him so that she won't feel guilty about being on the opposite side of the law and pursuing an intimate relationship despite knowing that it could get her lost in the confusion. 

This tension is explored and written fairly well although I expected it to have more  career consequences for her however it was mostly a journey of personal consequences instead.

That doesn't take away from the story at all as I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end.
