Brotherhood. Club. Family.They live and ride by their own rules.These are the Raven Riders...
Wild with grief over the death of his wife, Sam “Slider” Evans merely lives for his two sons. Nothing holds his interest anymore—not even riding his bike or his membership in the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. But that all changes when he hires a new babysitter.
Recently freed from a bad situation by the Ravens, Cora Campbell is determined to bury the past. When Slider offers her a nanny position, she accepts, needing the security and time to figure out what she wants from life. Cora adores his sweet boys, but never expected the red-hot attraction to their brooding, sexy father. If only he would notice her...
Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and yearns for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn’t have, the new lives they’ve only just discovered are threatened. Now Slider must claim—and protect—what’s his before it’s too late.
In Ride Wild we have the third installment in the Raven Riders Series….the sexiest and breathtaking series that Laura Kaye has brought to her readers. In every installment we have been given, we get in touch with this unique MC….a group of brothers that love to ride free, have each others backs and never give up on each other.
In this brilliant installment, Ride Wild, is a romance that pulls you in for the wild ride and refuses to let go until your breathless and wanting more. Laura Kaye has outdone herself with Ride Wild. Ever since I read book one Ride Hard I was captivated by these Raven Riders, and with each book, I only become more fascinated by these men and women who steal my heart. In Ride Wild, our story sets off with a character that we have seen since book one but have yet to see her story. A young woman who is carefree, strong willed, and loves a good party. But she has a past, a dark one, just like everyone else that is part of the Raven Riders. Cora Campbell has been babysitting for “Slider” two adorable boys who lost their mother to cancer two years previous. All three boys are still struggling to get back on their feet and find some joy in life again. Cora makes these two young boys come alive, she makes them smile and be happy. But their father is much more complex and will take much more work. Slider also has a past, a secret he has had to keep from everyone, but it haunts him every day. When Slider offers Cora a position as his “nanny” to provide more for himself and his boys, she agrees. But with Cora living in the same house, sparks sly between Slider and Cora and their attraction builds into something more real and permanent. But reality comes crashing down when Cora becomes embroiled in a plot, a dangerous one that could put all their lives in danger and it will take the whole workings of the club and their fellow friends to bring down their enemies and find peace once again.
Oh my goodness…what a story Ride Wild turned out to be and I just couldn’t put this one down…not once. I was lucky enough to read this one on my day off. So I could just enjoy the wild ride that Laura Kaye has given us. I have been itching for Cora’s book since reading Ride Hard. I have just loved her characters, and how she just draws people to her. You see how her personality brings out the best in people. But in this book, we see a deeper side to her character. We see the demons of her past that become unveiled, and my heart just went out to her. I love seeing how it hasn’t broken her, only made her stronger. The charming way she is with Slider’s two boys, is so tender at times. I know having kids in a romance may not be for everyone, but honestly Laura Kaye totally worked this element in all the right ways. She had me wishing these two boys were my own. Then we have the romance that builds between Cora and Slider. These two are just made for each other. They really balance each other’s strengths and weaknesses in the right way. Of course there are plenty of hot and heated moments between these two but not too much to overkill the plot either. It was simply great seeing these two connect on various levels. Their relationship felt so realistic to me, its probably why I was so captivated by their romance. Slider and Cora are a unique couple, and they just rocked this book in multiple ways.
Look at this face. Look into these eyes. And never, ever doubt that you’re looking at your biggest fan, your staunchest defender, and the man who will always hold you up and have your back.
The plot of the story that really will give you tingles up the spine. Even though I love that Laura Kaye brought this element into the story to give education to the readers, it will still heart wrenching to read. I had no idea that this was even done in the real world, and it only added authenticity to the story. I definitely recommend that readers watch out with Ride Wild because this book will take you on twists and turns, adventures and thrills, with some dangers along the way and a wonderful blend of passion, true love and the great unit that is the Raven Riders. Buckle your seats because this is a ride you won’t want to miss!! BREATHTAKING IN EVERY WAY!
Cora already knew where she belonged. And Slider already knew she was his forever. And they both knew love. So much love.
