Review: Still Standing by Kristen Ashley


(Wild West MC #1)

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.


STILL STANDING had me more or less feeling like I was on a teeter-totter. One moment I’m enjoying the book and the next I’m side-eyeing what is happening in the book. There were some low points I just couldn’t get behind even after an explanation was given. I know in the mc world things work differently but the hero (view spoiler).

I’ve read a little over a dozen of KA books and I just felt there were parts that didn’t seem to fit with her style.

I was hoping this would have been a 5 star read for me but the highs didn’t outweigh the lows. And as for reading the next book in the series – I’ll probably read it before I decide if this mc series is for me or not.
