Kristen Ashley will make you get lost in the worlds she creates. So here’s us getting lost with KA and Raid. Enjoy!
Yo! Get y’alls asses down to Rachelle’s Cafe to discuss Raid ASAP! Peace
Amanda: Yo chicas!
LeeAnne: Hidy Ho!
Crystal: Hi! *looks out window*
Amanda: Soooo…what did we think about Raid? Y’all know me. I’m biased when it comes to KA. She can do no wrong. BOOM.
Nadine: OMG! Could not put it down! KA knows how to write them. *sigh*
Janna: She has done it once again! I LOVED this book! I think it is my favorite of the series so far! She has yet to disappoint me!
Crystal: Loooooved it! *looking outside while looking up and down street and sidewalk*
Amanda: Gives a questioning look to Crystal and she just smiles
Amanda: How many of us wants to go out and buy a Schwinn, a Z and a porch swing? Raises both hands
Nadine: I’m getting a basket installed on mine as we sit here.
Crystal: My custom made Schwinn shall be delivered any moment now *keeps looking outside*
Sophie: Meeeee!!! Actually a Schwinn with a couple of plush flowers!
Janna: I do I do!!!! Can I get a Raid too?
Amanda: What was your favorite swoon moment? For me is when he whispered…”The girl of my dreams.”
LeeAnne: Two words: My reward.
Crystal: The porch conversation *pouting*
Janna: I have two actually. The first is when he says “My Reward” and the second is when he says “she never had my teeth” but that could be the freak in me coming out. HA!
Sophie: Honest and Sexy: “You, the dress, those shoes, that hair, beverages and furniture you can get horizontal on would not be a good combination.”
Let’s get this out of the way. First of all, I can relate to each female character that KA has written. Especially with this one. Ya know, how you’ve always had a crush on a boy thru school and later on in life and you doing nothing to make something happen? Yep, I get that. This is why I pimp KA a lot. Kristen writes “real” women and emotions that fit ME perfectly.
Raid was hot, dominant and the good guy with that edge of bad boy in him as well. Hannah is perfect for Raid, she balances him out and gives him a sense that he deserves his reward, her. The sex is smoking hot! Holy shit, at times I thought my kindle was going to catch fire and I would need a fire extinguisher to put it out! Raid can use his teeth on any part of me any time he wants.
Any man, who can sense that a good woman is his reward for all the bad he has had in his life, is a man I want in my life. The interactions between Raid, Hannah and Miss Mildred, Hannah’s great grandmother, not only is endearing but cements that nothing is more important than the love of your family and a strong person to guide you through life.
This was an amazing story from the very beginning. Hanna crushed on Raid for years, her whole life. Raid never knew she existed. Hanna’s dream crush died one day and she set out to make her life better. And when she did, Raid took notice. He noticed in a BIG way!!
Hanna has to learn to deal with Raid’s secret, his bossy alpha-maleness, his PTSD from military service, and his playing in the bedroom. And when Raid wants to play, everyone better hold on because it is HOT, HOT, HOT!
Hanna and Raid’s story burns up the sheets, the pages, and anyone who reads it. It’s hot, it’s sexy and it’s heart wrenching. Raid has so many issues to work through, all stemming from his military duty. Hanna is the one who can tame the fire burning inside, but can she survive it?
Raiden Ulyssess Miller, the town’s hero, returned from the war haunted by the things he experienced and lives lost. Hanna Boudreaux, the town’s sweetheart, has been crushing on him her whole life. Finally, she catches his eye and provides him with the exact healing he needs.
Raid will have you laughing, swooning, fanning yourself to cool off when it comes times to “play” and sheading a tear or two or more. The chemistry bewteen Raiden and Hanna is undeniably perfect. Hanna’s great grandmother, Miss. Mildred is the towns matriarch who is never wrong in all things. Miss Mildreds cat Spot is laugh out loud funny.
