I loved this book so much that I never put it down. Ride Hard had the same suspense and passion as the Hard Ink series. Because of my love for that series I had certain expectations for this story and just know that Laura Kaye certainly delivered on this book. The Raven Riders MC promises to be another outstanding series for Laura Kaye.
The Raven Riders are a very different kind of MC. They try their best to stay away from trouble and do more good than bad. That's how Haven and her friend Cora ended up hiding out at the clubhouse with trouble hot on their trail. Haven took the leader of the Ravens by surprise. Dare Kenyon had his own demons to slay but he was determined to keep Haven safe from her horrible dad. He would give her a wonderful life somewhere safe away from him despite the hot torrid love affair they were having. Inevitably he made some mistakes and a few people got hurt. As usual, this story was flawlessly written and hooked this reader from the first page until the last one. My keen eye saw a couple of mysteries for future novels.
All those times we got to see Dare and his Raven Riders during the previous series had me hoping Laura Kaye would give us more. When I first heard about this new series I couldn't wait for the first book. Now I am left craving the next one. This book had such a suspenseful tone, intricate sub stories, and a fantastic cast of intriguing characters. There were so many Ravens to choose from and I loved them all. I keep wondering which one will get the next book and how long will I have to wait to read it. Ride Rough in the fall .... I'm so excited.
Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders . . .
Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers—the only family he’s got—as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.
Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.
The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before . . .
