Nicola's Review

4 Bare Naked Stars****

This is a story of how one man will go to any lengths to be with the woman he loves no matter what the cost. Through determination, love and a small group of family/friends Merrick Drake will prove that he is the right man for Amelia Driscoll and no-one can stand in the way of that.

“No matter the storm that surrounded us, we would survive. We would still stand, untouched and perfectly fine.
We were permanent

Merrick Drake is a gorgeous, tattooed bar owner who has a passion for dirt bikes. He owns the race track and loves the thrill that racing and winning gives him. It’s during a race where he meets Amelia Driscoll. The aqua-eyed beauty who nearly stole the win from Merrick. He is completely blown away by her skills on a bike and finds himself wanting to spend more time with her.

Spending a weekend with Amelia was all it took for Merrick to fall hard for Amelia. The connection he felt was nothing he had ever experienced before and wants to explore them further.  However, she slips out without so much of a word. Changes her phone number, and completely disappears.

Merrick is left devastated.  Trying to move on proves to be difficult for him when she consumes most of his thoughts.

“I couldn’t believe I was letting her get to me, allowing her to consume my brain again when I had a hot, willing and ready female spread eagle in front of me. But I couldn’t. I couldn’t think about anything but her. It was her...again...”

“I was a fucking tool when it came to Amelia. Seeing her again might kill me. God, when did I turn into such a pussy?”

A couple of months later, Merrick comes face to face with Amelia. What’s the first thing he does? Run...He can’t face her, not after she stole his heart and ripped it out. After a heart to heart, well more of an ultimatum from his best friend Kayla he decides he has to find her and get her back.

“I was going to find her. I was going to find out what the hell happened and I was going to make her mine again. I didn’t care what it fucking took, Amelia Driscoll was mine and I would damn make sure that nothing ever changed that or stood in my way.”

Amelia has a lot of questions to answer and when she does reveal those god, it is so much more than Merrick could imagine.  They’re world and relationship is about to be turned upside down. But Merrick is determined to fight for his love, for Amelia.

“You do realize how stupid you are for loving me, right?” she asked, a smirk appearing on her face. “Baby, I would never argue the fact. I’ve been a stupid fuck my whole life; no need to change that now.”Her smirk changed to a smile. “Well, good, because you’re the stupidest asshole I’ve ever met.”

 But that love has to come at a price. And just how far of a price is Merrick willing to pay to be with Amelia?

“No matter what I had to do, I was doing it, even if I was over my head...there wasn’t another option.”

I really enjoyed reading Merrick and Amelia’s story. It’s told completely from Merrick’s POV which is a new thing for me. Yes I’ve read male POV’S before but normally as a 2nd book in a series, never as a standalone. It was a good change.

He is a bit of a pansy in the beginning but don’t let that stop you from reading on. The second half of the book is full of suspense and angst to fill a whole book.  It will keep you at the edge of your seat and turning the pages until you get to the end.  Even then I wanted to read on.
It’s definitely I book that I would recommend and would read more books by Ashley.
