Simple Ride is the sixth book in the Hellions Ride series from author Chelsea Camaron. It's the story of Nathan "Boomer" Vaughn, a former Green Beret and a member of the Hellions MC's Catawba chapter, and Pamela Williams (okay, I'm guessing her last name is Williams and you'll see why when you read the book because I can't divulge why I think that's her surname since it's twist of sorts), a Hellions MC barfly known as Purple Pussy Pamela. Being a barfly basically means Pamela is an available source of relief for any Hellion who happens to feel the urge to have sex. However, she and Boomer have been hooking up on a regular enough basis that other Hellions know to keep her distance and leave Pamela to their brother. Theirs doesn't feel like a hook-up and it's the closest to any sort of relationship Boomer's had in a long time. But when he tries to claim her, she flat-out refuses, leaving Boomer angry and confused. Then, Pamela's past comes back with a vengeance, and if Boomer has any hope to keep her safe, he's going to have to get his girl to share her secrets, and there is nothing simple about her secrets.
I've been going blind into each of these Hellions Ride books, so I was surprised when I realized book six was going to be about Boomer and Pamela. To be honest, I had to wrack my brain to remember who Pamela was because, for the life of me, I couldn't recall anything about her. Boomer, on the other hand, was memorable because he was close to Andy "Shooter" Jenkins. Pamela's secret was unexpected, and in connection with said secret, I'm going to give you guys a heads-up that there could be triggers in this book especially with as far as physical abuse goes. Boomer was a good guy, but then these Hellions don't seem to like being seen as "good", needing to maintain the whole bad boy biker thing. While I didn't really feel this connection between the two of them for a good portion of the book, things did feel more like they were a couple in the last quarter of the book. This book also happens to be more novella in length so it's a rather quick read and can actually be read as a standalone since it doesn't have or resolve any hanging story lines. All in all, Simple Ride was interesting and was fast-paced all throughout. Four stars. ♥
