    Loved this book in the series!

    Maybe they weren't ready before. They needed to grow, find out what they really wanted. Become who they were supposed to be all along. Be careful what you wish for. Alexa thought she got what she had wanted when she wanted certainty, permanence, and security. Unfortunately it's not what she thought it would be. She's got herself into a bad situation and didn't realize how bad it was until it was almost too late. When she needed help, she ran to the one man who used to have her heart, Maverick, her ex. (I'll just throw in there I'm calling dibs on him!) When she goes back home to Grant, her fiance, he is not pleased. He's not pleased about a lot of things. He's a controlling perfectionist that needs his butt laid out. The way that he treats Alexa made me want to get violent with him. Mav feels like he's let down the people that meant the most to him in the past and he isn't going to do it again. He's all in on protecting Alexa even if she doesn't want it. When the chips are down and he has to step in what is Alexa going to do? When Grant plays dirty to get her to come back to him, is she going to be strong enough with the help of Mav and his MC brothers to do what needs to be done? The way that Mav is with Alexa I just wanted to hug him. He's just being himself and she calls all of his protective instincts to the surface. These two together are steamy hot and to see them rebuilding their relationship *sigh* there's nothing like second chance love is there? "You're a good man, Maverick Rylan. Better than I gave you credit for. But I see you now."

    I Love This Series

    Ride Rough is the second book in the Raven Riders series about a group of bikers whose core focus is to help those who can’t help themselves. Their motto is Ride. Fight. Defend. This book is about the president of the club Dare’s cousin, Maverick Rylan, the Vice President. His old flame, Alexa Harmon, is engaged to a controlling, abusive jerk named Grant who owns half the town and has the mayor and a deputy in his pocket. Alexa also has a mom with a hoarding problem, but when she finally has enough, she ends up with Maverick. But Grant wants her back and is willing to do whatever it takes. Can Maverick protect her? Buy Ride Rough and find out! I love this series! First, it’s Laura Kaye, and she’s an amazing writer, no matter the series. Second, she’s made the MC genre fresh with these guys and I love them all. Third, the suspense is just great! Fourth…I could keep going, but seriously, you should grab a copy and see how amazing this book is for yourself.

    Perfect second chance romance

    Ride Rough is the second book in the Raven Riders series and it’s an amazing addition to this series. Maverick is Raven Riders’ VP, he’s a protector, loyal to the bone and he’s been in love with Alexa since they were teenagers. Unfortunately, their relationship took a bad turn because they couldn’t deal with a huge loss so they broke up 5 years ago (if you want to know more, you just have to read it!). Letting Alexa go is not Maverick’s only regret… Alexa moved on from Maverick (or so she thinks), she tried really hard to forget him and now she is engaged to a perfect, wealthy, educated man who offers her the security and stability she craves for herself and her mother. But she’s been trying to ignore her inner voice warnings, after all her wedding date is so close and she’s sure her fiancé loves her… I loved Maverick, he’s a sweet, strong, hot biker who puts those he loves first and protects those who need protection (the club provides protection for victims of abusive relationships) no matter what. His loyalty to his brothers and the club is absolutely swooning, I loved their MC family moments and their unconditional love for each other. And the chemistry between Maverick and Alexa was electric! Even though, I do think Alexa was a little too quick in giving in to their chemistry. Actually, I have to say that at first I didn’t exactly love Alexa, I had trouble understanding how could she break up with someone as special as Maverick. But Laura Kaye was brilliant with Alexa’s background, I mean grieve can sometimes lead us to make stupid mistakes and as their story progressed I understood Alexa’s need for financial stability and I warmed up to her. Besides, I admired her for getting out when she did and for finally standing up to Grant, her scumbag fiancé. It’s hard to read about an abusive relationship. Abusive relationships can include sexual, emotional and/or physical abuse, it’s not only based on physical violence. Disrespect, intense jealousy, mistreatment, controlling behavior, etc are not ok and I admire the way Laura made that point by showing us Grant’s erratic and escalating behavior. Of course, I wished Alexa didn’t ignore her intuition and all the other signs but that wouldn’t be very realistic. Overall, Ride Rough has a little bit of everything: action, suspense, sweet and steamy romance and a hot group of bikers (lots of them still single!). Ride Rough is my favorite so far in the Raven Riders series and I’m definitely in love with this MC! If you love a second chance romance, you can’t miss this one. Can’t wait for Cora and Slider’s story!

    A sweet second chance love story!

    Ride Rough is book two in the Raven Riders series by Laura Kaye. I loved this one. Maverick and Alexa have a past, but they or I should say she broke it off. She just wasn’t ready and of course she’s moved own. Now she’s engaged to a man she thinks will give her everything she ever wanted. Maverick made a vow to watch over Alexa whether she is in his life or not. These two might just find a second chance. WOW, it’s hard to read about abuse, of any kind, on anyone. The author vividly portrayed what was going on with Alexa, what she was thinking, and feeling. You can see and feel the abuse, but Alexa is not yet ready to see the signs, but when she does things get complicated; because her fiancé, Grant, has made it so her life is all wrapped up in his and their is no easy way out. Maverick is such a sweet guy. I loved him. When he gets his chance to be with Alexa again he doesn’t push. He is just their to help and maybe; become something more, if they can discuss the past and keep her safe. Their was just so much tenderness, passion, and warmth in this novel. I love the Raven Riders. They are a protective bunch and will do what they can to help Alexa out. The feelings Maverick and Alexa have for each other are deep and intense. The past was never resolved and they both have carried a torch for each other, even now, when they both tried to move on in their lives.  Two things that really stood out and made this one fun, sexy, and entertaining where the carnival and the sex scene on Maverick’s bike. Who can resist a splendidly well written sex scene on a motorcycle. Oh boy, it was hot and so sexy. The carnival was adorable and delightful. It was so great that the Raven Riders had this idea to put together a carnival to bring back business after the events in Ride Hard. The carnival brought back many memories from when I was a kid and all the fun times me and my friends had at the fair. It was well done and everyone had such fun. The more I dive into the Rave Riders series the more I fall in love with the world, the club, and their ladies. I’m excited for Ride Wild, because it’s finally Cora’s turn. I’ve wanted her story since the moment she popped up in Ride Hard as Haven’s best friend. Rated: 4 Stars *Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy provided by Avon via Edelweiss with the sole purpose of an honest review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

    A quick and entertaining read

    The second book in the Raven Riders series is about Maverick and Alexa. They used to date until she left him hoping for a better and more stable life for her and her mother after the death of her brother. We get our first glimpse of Alexa in the first book when five years later, she’s knocking back on the Raven’s door with bruises. Maverick only wants to help her, but she refuses to admit she needs help and apologize for coming. The second book continues to where things were left off between them; Maverick watching over her discreetly and her being in denial of what her life has become. He can’t seem to put her in the past though he knows he ought to do it knowing something is not right. Maverick is dedicated to the people he cared about. From the first book of the series, you can see that. He’s loyal and he would do anything to protect the ones he loves. He feels a lot of guilt over what happened between his mom and father and that reflects a lot into the person he has become. Alexa's character was frustrating at time, but at the same time, you understand where her thoughts are coming from. Unlike us the readers, Alexa isn't aware of the bad relationship she is in; she always finds excuses to explain why Slater did one thing and why he didn't do the other. But Alexa is a lot like Maverick; she takes care of her loved ones. She is dedicated to her mother and even if it’s hard sometimes, she doesn’t let that stop her. Alexa and Maverick together were like two pieces of puzzle put back together; they just fit. I liked how he helped her realize little by little that the relationship she thought she needs/wanted was far from perfect without pushing too far. He was there when she needed him and that’s it. It was slow building because Alexa had to work a lot on herself to understand who she was and who she has become and realize who she really was. Though the main story is about them, there’s also a lot of going on in the background with the Ravens as they try to save the image of the club after the events of the previous books and so many obstacles are put on their path too. I will admit that I got frustrated with the book from time to time because a lot of injustices happened in it and I wanted to punch someone and since I can’t punch my phone, I decided to just turn it off and wait to cool off. Overall, it was a quick read that will probably make you want to hit something from time to time, but I think you’ll fall in love with Alexa and Maverick’s story. I'm really looking forward to the next books of the series and see where Laura will take us next.
