"Ride to Restoration" by D.J. Wilson....
What was this novel about?
"In this second book, D learns that paying it forward is not without costs, toss in Candi Parker, the girl of D’s dreams gone rogue, along with vivacious Victoria Lawson, attorney at law, who willingly steps in to fill Candi’s thong, and D’s hilarious misadventures continue across Canada. Reality sets in and the bullets begin to fly just two days after he returns to the states.
D sends Victoria away to keep her out of harm’s way, before tackling his real life demons, aka A.J. Standford, the Ponzi scheming banker who has a bounty on D’s head, and Candi’s extended family, the Gambinos, who will profit from his demise.
The romantic side of the story poses multiple questions: Will D settle for Victoria after being royally screwed by Candi or will his feelings for Candi propel him back into her life and the crime family’s ongoing chaos? Will Candi take back her sleazy ex-husband Joseph or will she somehow manage to break with her powerful family and come crawling back to D’s loving arms?
With all of this going on, there’s bound to be hell to pay sooner rather than later. Like momma always said, “When you play with fire, you’re gonna get burned.”
What I liked from this novel....
First of all I will say I think it is best to read 'Ride to Redemption' book one of this author's novels before reading this one because it will explain a lots that continues on in this read 'paying it forward" 'Ride to Restoration.' Get ready for a read with a little bit of it all and you will have to keep up with it because it is easy to get lost especially who is who? This author uses a lots of narratives along with some subconscious thoughts of the different characters. The chapters will jump around from one area to another as this author will lead you on a long ride as we visit with Candice, Joseph, Victoria, and D(Jon David). Be ready for a journey of steamy sex scenes, traveling...riding the motorcycle, romance, hunts, bantering between them and even beautiful scenery described in this read as you will 'play it forward' throughout the read. So, will we learn what is going on with "that diamond story that's flooding the news channels that was making instant millionaires to so many people?" How will V come out of all of this mess he has gotten himself in...with Candi and V? Be prepared for a long read because this author will not leave anything out in his seventy some chapters.
What I also liked from this read...
The main and secondary characters were really off the chart... all very interesting, well developed and even believable as the reader gets many sides of them as you read about their present and future.
I liked the feeling of being able to seem that you were there with each of them. This was definitely a unique way of deliverance of a read given to us by the author. The are a lots of questions to all of the Ponzi scheming that is brought out in the read. I don't want to give any of this good story away so you will just have to pick up 'Ride to Restoration' to see how this author will bring it all out to the readers. Believe me it will be one interesting ride! Now, I will say a little something about the ending...yes, you will be left having to wait and see what's next in this author's Ride Series... Book 3 'Ride to Retribution.'
