Title: Wild Ride
Series: Wind Dragons MC Novella
Author: Chantal Fernando
Publisher: Pocket Star Ebook
Talon has a complicated relationship with the Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club. He's the president of their rival club, the Wild Men, but he's also related to one of their members-who hates him. He could handle that, but he's also got problems in his own club; someone is leaking information and disrupting their business, but Talon can't find the mole. So the last thing he needs is even more complication in the form of a beautiful single mother who's bolder than half the bikers on his squad. But he can't take his eyes - or his hands - off of her...
Tia's always been a little reckless, up for a good time wherever she found it, but she's also a great mom to her young son. So even though she thinks Talon is basically sex on a stick, when she releases she wants to be more to him than just a club groupie, she has to take things a bit slow. Plus, a momentary attraction, no matter how smoking hot, isn't worth risking her son's happiness in any way. Is there any chance that Talon might be up for a more permanent arrangement? Or has Tia leapt before looking once again?
OH MY LANTA. THAT WAS ONE HOT NOVELLA.
Even though this was a novella, Chantal managed to incorporate humor, romance, friendship, and mystery through out this story. I was really impressed with how natural everything felt! Nothing felt slow paced or boring.
Usually novellas that have romance fall victim to insta-love, however, this novella did not. The couple was introduced in a previous book, which made the connection between Tia and Talon more believable. I loved seeing Tia and Talon interact. I thought their personalities suited each other so well. The chemistry between them was out of this world! This was one steamy novella.
I really liked learning more about Talon and Tia. I thought they were such interesting characters! I honestly wish this would have been a full-length novel, because I wanted more of Tia and Talon! I could read about them forever.
This novella set up some interesting story lines that I am really excited to see play out in future books. If you are looking for a sexy MC novella, I would definitely recommend this novella to you! I would recommend reading the rest of the Wind Dragons series before picking up this novella. You won't regret starting this awesome series and novella!

If you ask me what's a perfect way to write a novella, I would give you Wild Ride as an example.
Chantal Fernando clues us in into who the main characters were going to be in Rake's Redemption. We knew it was bound to happen after Tia met Talon. They shared a look and in this novella, we learned they shared a smoking hot kiss too. Afterward, neither could stop thinking about the other one but Tia was not going to take the next step, after all, she was the one who kissed him in the first place.
On the other hand, Talon is dealing with his own club drama, The Wild Men MC. His club is not squeaky clean and he believes someone in his club is a mole. The last thing he wants to bring to the club is Tia and her son Rhett until he knows it's safe.
Kudos to Chantal Fernando for making a novella feel like a full book. I loved that their relationship took it's time to develop. Weeks passed before they would have a new interaction, making their story much more believable.
I also like Anna and Bailey's attitude. They were there to support their friend despite being part of the rival club, The Wind Dragons. I do agree that Rake needs to stop being immature and realized his attitude doesn't help. Anna is always going to have a relationship with Talon. Talon cares for her as a sister and he won't let anything bad happen to her.
Last but not least, I liked that we get a lot of suspense and intrigue. We get a hint of who's the next couple to fall in love is and we know the drama is far from over.
I have nothing but good things to say about this book. I'm definitely enjoying the ride.
