Review: Ride Rough by Laura Kaye

Ride Rough
Raven Riders #2
Laura Kaye
Avon Books

Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders...

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.

Can I just say that I love Laura Kaye's books. I just can't help myself, the second I pick one up I know my day is shot. I just hate to put them down! She has a wonderful way of making your heart break and pissing you off! 

Are you intrigued? You should be! 

She's great at balancing suspense with romance. What I love is that you know her books are clocked full of suspense but the romance is still the important part of the story. It's one of the reasons I read her. The other reason is her wonderful guys! 

They are some of the bests! 

Ride Rough is book #2 of her Raven Riders series. I've mentioned before I'm not a fan at all of motorcycle gangs. Not my cup of tea. The only reason I tried this series is because of Kaye. I like her books so I thought I give it a try. 

I'm so glad I did!

I found myself falling in love with the characters of this series. Yes, they all ride motorcycles and might do a few shady things, but they do such good for those who can't do for themselves. 

Ride Rough is about Maverick and Alexa. This is a second chance romance. Love Maverick! He's such a great guy with a big heart. He's the type of guy you'd like to get to know. 

Now Alexa is a different kettle of fish. I'm not sure if it's because she hurt Maverick that I don't care for her as much or what. I'm not saying she's a unlikable character, because I did like her, I just didn't love her. It happens! 

Alexa has a tough time staying strong. She runs from confrontation instead of taking control of her own life. She's very lucky to have people who care about her to stand for her. Now don't get me wrong I did understand her. And I felt bad for her childhood. It must not be easy to grow up with a hoarder. I also know what it's like to be a people-pleaser. Not a easy! 

Of course in the end all is well. It's what I love about romance books. I'm so glad I read this one and can't wait for the next. 

If you've read Ride Rough or any other book by Laura Kaye I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
