Still Standing (Wild West MC Series Book 1) by 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.

Somewhere along the way I forgot the book was named “Still Standing” and I though and believed the name should be STILL BREATHING.
If you’ve read some of the series written by Kristen Ashley, you know to expect Alpha Males, take what they want, no bullshit, make you love them kind of books. Buck, the President of the Aces, is no different.
Life has been very hard for Clara. She’s a foster kid that struggled through life and end up loving and marrying a man who lied to her and turned out to be a fraud. That is why she is in the predicament of being a messenger for the bad guy. That is for money and to help the only friend she has.
This book is not light, it got me mad about Buck around 10% and I was still mad a long time until he cleared the air. I though there was a bit of a cheating, but our H had all his attention on his woman.
What to expect? Buck saving Clara, kidnapping, teen kids and full on drama. Angst and a heroine that wants to find her happiness after dealing with a world of hurt. She finally finds a man who can be her shield, but they will fight for it.
