Review: Ride Hard (Raven Riders, #1) by Laura Kaye

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 . . .

Ride Hard by Laura Kaye
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Having loved the Hark Ink series I was happy to see we were going to get the stories of the MC Club that helped them throughout it. This first book did not disappoint.

The Raven Riders are not your typical MC. There main cause is to help those that cannot help themselves. Mainly abused women or women who need their protection for whatever reason.

In a thread left over from previous book, Haven Randall and her friend Cora are currently holed up at the Raven Riders compound after being rescued from a bad MC club that had taken them for the reward her abusive father had put out on her for her return to him. For 8 years she lived in fear locked in her father’s house cut off from everyone but his criminal friends before she and Cora ran. When we first meet her she is extremely shy and leery of all men.

Club President Dare Kenyon is very passionate in his cause to rescue women and children due to tragic circumstances from his own childhood. His club has been his life for so long he has become a bit cynical on ever finding that one to settle down with. When he meets Haven he is instantly attracted but yet the huge age difference and her being skittish around men and knowing that soon they will have her and her friend set up with new identities somewhere has him fighting any attraction.

Both of them come out of their protective shells they wrapped around their hearts with each other and one of the best things about this book compared to the other series is they take there time before jumping in to bed (with this book being longer the romance didnt have to rushed – not that I didnt like the other books just the romances were on high speed due to the length of the books)

I liked this MC world the author created and we got to meet plenty of the guys who will be in future books and I look forward to their stories.
