Synopsis

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.

Excerpt

“Hey, Cora,” he said, his gravelly morning voice so damn sexy.

“Hey,” she said, tilting her head back to look him in the eye. She wondered if she should get off him, but didn’t really want to.

Not making any move to get up, Slider just looked down at her. “How you feeling?”

“A lot better,” she said, hyperaware that her hand was lying on his chest. His heartbeat faintly registered against her palm. “Still achy and a little off, but better.”

“Good. You should probably take it easy today, though. Whatever that was isn’t likely out of your system yet.”

She nodded. “I will.”

Talking like this, their faces so close, felt so damn intimate that Cora could almost imagine that nothing existed outside of Slider’s bed. She almost didn’t want it to. Especially when his arm squeezed a little tighter around her shoulders and brought them just a little closer. Cora shifted into his embrace, pressing her chest totally flush against his die, and sliding her thigh up until—

Oh, hell. Until she felt the part of him she’d accidentally seen. And it was hard.

He sucked in a breath, and his hand clamped around his thigh. “Shit, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean—”

She placed her fingers loosely over his mouth. She didn’t want him to apologize. Or explain it away. Or push her away.

Cora knew she shouldn’t wan the things she did, but that didn’t make her desires go away. It felt good to want Slider, it made her feel normal, even if she was a little nervous. After what her father had done, that seemed like a victory she didn’t want to relinquish.

And, oh, now that she was touching his face, she really didn’t want to stop. His lips were full and soft under her fingers, his stubble was more ticklish than prickly, and his cheekbone was prominent under his skin.

He licked his lips, and her gaze latched on to the movement.

“Cora,” he rasped, his cock getting even harder against her thigh.

His arousal fueled her own, her hips tilting with the need for friction. The movement had her grinding herself against the firm muscle of his thigh and made both of them suck in a breath. His grip tightened on her everywhere. His arm holding her tighter yet to him, his hand pulling her thigh wider across him.

Her fingers returned to his mouth again, and traced across his lower lip. His tongue flicked out and swiped at her pointer finger, and Cora was instantly wet. Trembling with need and adrenaline and the fear that at any second, he would cut this off, Cora shifted ever so slowly, ever so slightly, bringing her face closer to his. He watched her like she was a tigress about to strike, but just as her mouth almost reached his, he flipped them and pinned her to the bed.

And Cora realized she had it all wrong. He’d been the feral animal about to attack all along.

Review

Ride Wild is the third book in the Raven Riders series and my absolute favorite of this series!

I really thought it was going to be hard to top Ride Rough but I should’ve know Laura Kaye NEVER disappoints. I laughed, sighed and cried while reading Slider and Cora’s story. I’m sorry Maverick, but Slider is my new favorite Raven!

Slider is a sexy single dad, he’s been through hell and he has deep emotional scars, nonetheless he’s trying really hard to raise his kids and, well, he’s also fighting his attraction to Cora. He’s aware that she makes his kids happy, so he hires her as a nanny, but, with Cora living in his house, it’s getting harder to avoid noticing everything about her, however his past keeps haunting him and he’s not willing to share his secret. At least not until he realizes that his boys aren’t the only ones falling madly in love with Cora…

Cora is probably the strongest heroine of Raven’s Riders world. She’s gorgeous, funny, with a heart of gold, a soft spot for animals, she’s an amazing friend and her relationship with Slider’s kids is absolutely perfect! I loved everything about her, how brave she was, how she tried to protect the ones she loved (especially Haven) and her selflessness is utterly inspiring. Cora often has nightmares about her past, her life before the Ravens was hard and even though she wants to move on and heal, she finds herself still dealing with panic attacks and loneliness. She is deeply in love with Sam and Ben, Slider’s kids, and when Slider offers her a job as their nanny, Cora thinks life can’t get any better… except maybe it does…

I loved both Cora and Slider as individuals. But honestly when they finally give in to the intense chemistry between them… that’s when I really fell hard for them as a couple: the way their relationship build, the steamy moments, their truly beautiful romance, everything between them was amazing. They were so perfect for each other, it was enthralling. I literally couldn’t put my Kindle down! Everything flowed effortlessly! Even Sam and Ben provided lots of swoony moments and kept showing how Cora and Slider were meant to be together. Ride Wild wrecked me in such a great way.  And, then, Laura describes one of the most horrible things humans do to innocent, loving dogs, which wrecked me even more and I couldn’t stop my tears from falling. But I don’t want to give much of the story away, so just trust me: if you haven’t read Ride Wild yet, you’re definitely missing out!

Ride Wild is an amazing, emotional journey, beautifully written with amazing characters, plenty of romance, swoony moments and an awesome suspense plot. I highly recommend it and I really hope we’ll get Phoenix and Caine’s stories too.
