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.

REVIEW:

warning —> triggers: this book contains sexual violence, abuse

In the words of Mav, that was “the best fucking ride of my life,” and I never wanted it to end! Ride Rough by Laura Kaye is a thrilling and sexy read! Maverick and Alexa’s second chance romance hooked me from the very first page (well, if I’m being honest, these two sunk their claws into me the very first time we met Alexa in book one, Ride Hard).
Maverick is strong, sweet, and kind beyond belief. You can really feel how much he loves Alexa and it shows in his actions. He’s gentle and doesn’t push her because he knows she’s a strong independent woman capable of making decisions in her own time. Which despite the situation she finds herself in, Alexa is a strong independent woman! The transparency with which her character is written is something I respect and if this were real life, I would be proud to call her my friend.
But seriously, I just love Mav and Alexa. I mean HOLY HELL. When Mav and Alexa got all kinds of naughty on his bike…dead. Abso-freaking-lutely dead. The sex is so hot. And not only do they scorch up the pages, but they also cause hearts to go pitter-patter because they’re just so darn cute together. Did y’all read that scene where they were giving Lucy, Alexa’s cat, a bath. SWOON.

“You are totally cooing at my cat right now.”

“Am not.”

“It’s turning me on.”

“I’m totally cooing at your cat.”

See?!!? SWOON. There is just so much to love and appreciate about Ride Rough and Laura Kaye’s storytelling. And OMG the carnival?! Seeing Dare and Haven having such a good time with Mav and Alexa was really wonderful (and funny!). I highly recommend picking up this book!! I can’t wait for Cora and Slider’s story (while I love Mav and Alexa, is it okay to say I’m sad this wasn’t Cora’s book yet?! I’m dying here!), and I hope Phoenix gets some page time, too! I’m definitely falling hard for the Raven Riders!

EXCERPT:

Just this once

“I want you. Feels like I’ve been wanting you my whole life.” Alexa peered up at him, her eyes so vibrant they were nearly green.

Maverick pulled back, her words hitting him in all kinds of places, some comfortable, some even healing, but some less so. “You can’t toy with me, Alexa. Not when I’ve wanted you for so long. Not when I never wanted to let you go in the first place. This . . . this can just be fucking. But don’t you dare say anything you don’t mean.”

She stroked his hair. “Truth?”

He gave a tight nod and prepared for the worst, even as he hoped for a shot.

“Truth is, I don’t know what this means. Yet. I am so messed up right now. I’m not even going to hide that. But . . .” She tilted her head, and her expression was filled with something Mav didn’t want to name, but it sure as hell looked like affection. “But I know I want this. I want you, Maverick. Right now. And wanting you feels like one of the smartest decisions I’ve made in forever. Everything else be damned.” Her voice was shaky and breathy and her words were so full of dangerous, dangerous hope that Maverick didn’t dare move.

His muscles nearly shook with the force of his restraint, because his body was literally screaming at him. Screaming at him to just let go. “Fuck, Alexa.”

“I don’t want to hurt you. I never wanted to hurt you. But I want you. I want you inside me right now more than I want my next breath.”

Even though his mind was rolling out a list of all the reasons why this was a no good what the fuck are you thinking very bad idea, Maverick’s body grabbed the reins. On a groan, he went in for a kiss, rougher than he intended, but the moan she unleashed when his mouth crashed down on hers told him she didn’t mind. They fumbled with clothes. Her boxers. His jeans. Until they were both naked and pressed tight, all hot skin on skin, and his cock ground against her soft folds until she was mewling and writhing and silently pleading with the rough, desperate grip of her hands on his shoulders, his back, his ass.

A big part of Maverick wanted to pick Alexa up and carry her to his bed—where his heart said she belonged—but this wasn’t about that. At least not yet, and he wasn’t giving either of them any more time to think than he already had.

He needed her too damn bad. Just this once. In case that’s all it was.
