#Review #TwinsieFavoriteAuthor – Original Ride by Chelsea Camaron

Title: Originals Ride: Hellions Motorcycle Club
Series: Hellions Ride #8
Author: Chelsea Camaron
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2016
Four men, four families, four originals, one club. 

Go back to where it all began so long ago for Roundman, Danza, Frisco, and the late Rocky Fowler. A life choice, a road less traveled, all coming together in the name of brotherhood. 

Some found love, some faced loss, and others learned real loyalty. This is the story before the chaos. This is how the originals ride. 
*This is a full length novel. Each book in the Hellions Ride series can be read as a stand-alone story with NO cliffhanger endings. Contains adult language, situations, and violence not recommended for readers under the age of 18. This is not an exact depiction of life in a motorcycle club but rather a work of fiction meant to entertain.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

The tears from this book.  I cant even begin to tell you.  I am sitting at my lap top after finishing this book and I am so sad.  UGH!  Chelsea killed it with this book and the emotional stories of the original guys.

This book is taking up back in time to the day that the Hellions MC was formed.  It introduced us to the guys and how they got to be Roundman, Danza, Rocky and Frisco.  I loved it and giggled as each man’s name was pronounced.

We get to see each of the guys and their woman/wives starting life and families.  We get to see Baine/Roundman and Dia.  We get to feel the love that they have.  We got to experience the birth of baby Doll and then we get to see the death of Dia.  We get to see each of the men opening their eyes to the family that they have created out of necessity but now continues out of loyalty.

This book is just amazing for any reader of the series.  It is a must read for sure because you need to see the beginning to enjoy the final rides that we have in the series comes to an end!!!  I am saddened at that last line because I have been a huge fan of this series and these characters!

 Melinda's Review

I received this book for an honest review.

What a great addition to the series. This tells us how the Hellions came to be and why. How each of the original brothers became friends and how they got their names. Let me tell you you will need tissues. Their stories are touching and heart breaking. Each one is different but each one has loved hard, hurt deep , and is loyal to the end it is what makes them brothers an d a family. They became the Hellions out of necessity but stayed Hellions because they are family and loyal. They over come tragedy and loss they also protect and see to revenge when needed.

The love and respect Roundman has for Dia from the moment he falls for her is amazing and every woman’s dream.  She is truly his one and only Love. I was heartbroken when I watched what she went through and her letters to Roundman and Doll absolutely tore me apart! I was a mess over Rocky and Marie. To see the ups and downs of Danza and Mary Alice and wondering if they were going to be able to make it last or not was heart wrenching. What can I say about Frisco all he wanted was what the others had, someone to love and someone to love him but he never quite found it. My heart ached for him and everything he went through.

This truly was the best story it added so much to this series. We have so much more back story on each of the original brothers and ol’ ladies now. It also set up a little for the next and final book in the series. I’m going to be so sad to see this series end. I so love these guys and these families.

EXCERPT

ROUNDMAN
“Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,” Dia sings softly to our baby girl. “Daddy’s gonna buy you a Harley shirt.”
I can’t stop the laugh that escapes as I lean against the doorjamb.
Little noises come from our baby, and Dia looks up at me with sharp eyes.
“Well then, Mister Chuckles, you come put her to sleep.” She stands from the rocking chair and brings me the baby all wrapped in red.
Claudia was adamant that our nursery and baby not look like someone vomited Pepto pink in her room and her wardrobe. Can’t say that I’m sad she feels that way, either.
With her hair all wild around her face, her eyes tired from lack of sleep these last few days, and baby spit-up on her shirt, my wife has never looked more disheveled nor more beautiful.
Taking Delilah from her arms, I kiss my wife on her forehead. “Go shower and take a nap, love.”
“Gladly,” she says with an exhausted smile. With a quick kiss to our daughter’s head and one to my lips, she heads off to her sanctuary—our bedroom.
Sitting in the rocker that faces my daughter’s crib all decked out in hot air balloons with teddy bears, I have to smile at how life has changed from the moment they placed Delilah in my arms.
With the face of a doll, eyes of an angel, and a head of blonde hair to match her mother’s, my baby girl is absolutely perfect.
Bright eyes look up at me as she opens and closes her mouth like a fish. “Never known love so deep, dollface.” My voice is raspy as I try not to be loud, but I want to talk to my little girl. “Loved your momma before, but watching her with you, holding you, having you … Well, Doll, I’ve never know anything purer in my life.”
My daughter smiles. Dia says it’s gas, but I don’t care. My baby girl smiles before her eyes close, and she snuggles closer to me.
“Leather, oil, and man,” I explain happily. “One day, you’re gonna grow up, and when you find a man, he should smell like a hardworking man, Doll.” The thought of my baby girl growing up has me twitching to shoot something. “Never mind that, precious. I promise you, as your dad, I’ll be the man you look up to. I’ll be the man who makes you proud. I’ll be rock solid for you and your momma. I’ll give you my all and my love.” I rock her, thinking of what it’s going to be like to watch her grow. “When the time comes to let you go, I’m going to fight like hell to keep you with me. I’ll give my life before I’ll let anyone touch you.” Kissing her head as she soundly sleeps, I hold my daughter in my arms.
