R E V I E W ➠ Still Standing by Kristen Ashley
When Clara Delany walks into the Aces High Motorcycle Club’s hangout, she’s hit rock bottom. She’s hiding her car from the repo man, she has less than two dollars in her bank account and the only employment she can get is delivering messages for a criminal.
All because of a man. Therefore, she’s sworn off them.
And then she meets West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC.
Buck also meets her, and the minute he does, he makes it clear (to everyone but Clara) that they’re starting something. Since Clara doesn’t get that message, she decides to leave Buck and sort out her life in order to come back to him clean.
She’s not gone but hours before life hits Clara with another blow. Which means Buck and his boys have to ride in and save the day. After that, Buck makes no bones about where they stand.
But does he?
Welcome to the first novel in the Wild West MC series which will tell the stories of the brothers of the Aces High MC, the Resurrection MC, and the Chaos MC…and the women who love them.

Not my first read by the author, and I AM A HUGE HUGE HUGE FAN of Kristen Ashley, so yes I have read and re-read all her books over the years and YES they still feel new to me each time! So whoever asked for this style enough or WHATever got her to write this, BEWARE: THIS IS A OG KA (Original Kristen Ashley) and Beware in the best way possible because if you missed her MC romance, ooooh boy you’re in for a ride because I don’t even know myself how to express my review without giving it all to you but I will do my best!
I want to start with saying that this is a deja vu of Motorcycle Man Tyra and Kane (if you haven’t read that yet you won’t get it but basically it happens to be one of my absolute favorite books!) So the ladies whoa re big fans and have read her books you’re in for a beautiful treat. It actually took me back to the good ol’ days but also gave it something new. Even though it reminded me a lot of that book, it was new in it’s own and I will happily say that a couple past characters make an appearance. Let’s get into it.
Buck and Clara, what a duo, we have Buck who is the head of Aces High Motorcycle Club and Clara who is a woman who came form nothing, trying to make ends meets. Their actual meet started off right away, when Clara walks into Buck’s club to deliver a message. That’s when the fun starts because Buck is equally sharp and smart like Tack and this really brought back the butterfly-in-tummy feels. Like I said it jumps right into, it’s an adventure from the beginning to the end. Buck is a man’s man, single dad, fucked up past, fucked up present but a man who acts on his emotions. Clara is a woman that had it amazing, had someone amazing, until the day she did not. Shy, vulnerable but so strong librarian-looking woman meets tough biker boss. Where there is a Club there are club parties and there are bunnies, I am not going to get into that except to say that I was super super mad at Buck for a little while in the book that’s all I am saying (and will add that not everything is as it seems) I loved it all, the angst, the action, the ROMANCE it was really really sweet because nothing to me is sweeter than a MC’s romance!
*I want to touch on triggers because to me they may not have been significant but I know there is a lot of hurt in the world and some of the scenes and actions taken may be triggers for someone. If you’ve never read KA this’ll be a little shocking if you’re not in the understanding of the style and type. But if you’ve read KA well this also might be a little shocking slightly, you’ll definitely be defensive for the heroine. With understanding and reasoning but I was a’ taken back just a little.
