Self-Published | January 24, 2016 | MC Romance
Hellions Ride, book 7


The Hellions motorcycle club is a commitment for life, one Ruben ‘Ruby’ Castillo believes in. 

His wife Jenna ‘Vida’ Natera de Castillo has given her life to being his ol’ lady and the mother to their three children. She takes her commitment to her man seriously. 

People change, and over time, passion can fizzle. Life for Jenna falls apart the day Ruby no long-er says I do. 

Keeping the fires burning in a marriage is hard. Will the chaos of the club bring them back to-gether, or is it what pulls them further apart? Will these two find the flame again? Will their love find a new spark on their heated ride through life?

In a slight change from your 'typical' romance (but to a slightly different extent than the SEVEN YEAR ITCH series), Camaron brings us to the Hellions MC club and to the crumbling marriage of Ruby and his Vida. While it may be falling apart, Vida refuses to divorce -- she refuses to let another woman raise their children.

This was the story of Ruby trying to find a way to make his wife happy, as well as the story of Vida relearning who Jenna is -- she feels as if she's lost herself to the mom and wife role, and wants to find her way back to Jenna. I loved her ferocity. She didn't want to see Ruby with other women, but at the same time, she didn't want to divorce him either. On the one hand, I wanted to shake her -- can't have your cake and eat it too, and that jazz -- I still commended her. I would have liked her to have been more vocal about saving her marriage than just the kids line, though, because an unhappy marriage is not a good place to raise kids, but that's neither here nor there.

Ruby still loves Jenna, and he more than recognizes that she's lost her way in the past few years. As their story progresses, you can't help but love the man and his love for his wife. He doesn't go about showing it the right way all of the time (this is a MC romance, after all), but his love is more than evident in his thoughts.

It wouldn't be an MC romance without some sort of suspense line, and with it is a bit of a twist. Now, I've not read the previous books so I'm unsure how much was built up beforehand, but I found some things to be a bit surprising. And like any good romance, it takes these big 'boom' moments for our characters to truly face the question -- can I go on without the other? Is the other still my other half?

Definitely a great story, a great addition to the MC world as a whole, and a great tale of a couple fighting to stay together in each person's own individual ways. This is a story that many readers will be able to relate to.
