About Ride Rough (Raven Riders #2, 4/25/17)

Maverick Rylan won’t apologize for who he is—the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club Vice-President, a sought-after custom bike builder, and a man dedicated to protecting those he loves. So when he learns that the only woman who has ever held his heart is in trouble, he’ll move heaven and earth to save her.

Alexa Harmon thought she had it all—the security of a good job, a beautiful home, and a powerful, charming fiancé who offered the life she never had growing up. But when her dream quickly turns into a nightmare, Alexa realizes she’s fallen for a façade she can’t escape—until sexy, dangerous Maverick offers her a way out.

Forced together to keep Alexa safe, their powerful attraction reignites and Maverick determines to do whatever it takes to earn a second chance—one Alexa is tempted to give. But her ex-fiancé isn’t going to let her go without a fight, one that will threaten everything they both hold dear.

“What am I going to do? My entire life is wrapped up in him. My job. Where I live. My car. Where Mom lives. Everything. Oh, God. This is going to be a nightmare, isn’t it?”

Maverick grasped Alexa’s hands. “One thing at a time. You’re out. You can stay here as long as you need to. I have plenty of room. I’ll help you through it. That’ll give you time to figure out what it is you want. There’s no rush.”

“Okay,” she said. “Okay. God, thank you.” A shiver raced over her skin.

“You don’t have to thank me. I’m so relieved for you that I might fall the fuck over,” he said, his thumb rubbing over her knuckles. She almost managed a little smile. “Your hands are like ice, Al. I shouldn’t have made you stand her all this time when you’re soaking wet.”

Alexa shook her head. “It felt good to get it out, Maverick.”

“Glad to hear it. Would a hot shower make you feel better? I can find you a T-shirt and a pair of boxers to change into while your clothes dry.”

All the TLC and understanding he was giving her reached right inside her chest. When was the last time someone had taken care of her this way?

The last time you were with Maverick. The truth of that thought made her breath catch. “Yeah. I’d like that,” she managed.

He gave a tight nod and stepped back, and she missed his heat immediately. “Uh, good. That’s good. You remember your way around?”

“Of course,” she said. How much time had she spent here over the years? Even before they dated? At one point, Maverick’s place had practically been a second home.

“You okay?” he asked, watching her.

She pushed off the door. “I don’t know yet,” she said, coming to him. “But what I do know is how grateful I am to you. For everything. For being there when I told you not to. For listening. For just . . . being you.”

“Always.” He crossed his big arms and ducked his chin, like something about the exchange made him uncomfortable.

“I mean it,” she said, and then she pressed onto tiptoes and kissed his cheek, his stubble tickling her lips. “You saved me tonight.”

“No,” he said, eyes flashing, one brow arched. “You saved yourself, Al. I was just your getaway driver.”

Staring into one another’s eyes, the tender moment stretched out, morphed, suddenly flashed hot. Being so close to him set her body on fire, and finally she could actually consider acting on it. Need roared through her, a living, breathing thing. “Maverick,” she whispered.

“Fuck, Alexa, I think you better go take that shower,” he said, his jaw ticking. “Now.”

She released a shaky breath and nodded. He was right. Of course, he was.

So, showering. She could handle that. Afterward, God only knew what she was going to do.

Raven Riders Series Trailer:



“You. Us. A future. Our history, even the fucked-up parts.”

One of the reasons I don't read blurbs is I wanted to be surprised, especially when I'm reading a series I have my radar into. I was so excited it was Mav's story, and even more excited what's in store for this series.

I've been a Hard Ink fan, and every now and then, I wish I'd see read a glimpse of them and I always wish, there's some of them in the Raven Riders although that would mean bloody.

“To potect her, to comfort her, to be her shelter in the storm.”

Anyway, Maverick had that one person who got away, and when she showed up at that faithful day in Ride Hard (Raven Riders #1), all bets are off. He'd do anything to save her.

Alexa had been part of the big family that is Raven Riders Club, that is, until that love for riding took his brother away from her and everything came tumbling down for her. Left with a huge responsibility with her mother, she was forced to look for stability and security, even if she got her heart broken. With her wedding only a few weeks away, everything she thought she knew becomes warped and she had to rethink her choices, and had to make a decision fast.

I love both of the characters! Alexa's attraction for Mav never faded, and when she was forced to lean on him, the tension and the chemistry were just sizzling that falling for him fast and hard all over again was inevitable.

Mav was just Mav. Protective, loyal, and definitely mature! OMFG I so love him with all his faults and imprerfections!

The story may have been a little overwhelming with a lot going on but its my kind of story that I was just sucked in a world I love, and never wanting to get out!

“She breathed him in, her heart and her body recognizing his scent, all leather and soap and Maverick.”

Once again, Laura Kaye blew me away! This left me speechless and nostalgic and I just want to soak in and be left in the world I fell in love in! The characters just made me love them more!

I want more!

“You and me against the world.”

P.S. Never ride a motorcycle if its not with your man because no matter how innocent it is, people will still look at it like you're with that person. Also, the rumbling of the engine. Yeah. Makes me want a to ride a powerful motorcyle. *wink*
