Ride Hard: A Raven Riders Novel by Laura Kaye 👩🏻💻
Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders…
Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers–the only family he’s got–as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.
Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.
The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before…

Dean “Dare” Kenyon runs the Ravens MC, he doesn’t want the club running the old ways, so with the help of his grandfather, cousin and best friend, he turned the club around. They help those who can’t help themselves.
Dare lost his older brother and mother to guns (his father shot them when he found out they were running way.)
Haven loves to bake, it’s her way of contributing, saying thank you and a way to calm herself down.
Very cowed, scared of her own shadow, she’s lived a very sheltered life (Haven would claim a prison life) on the run when she found out she was going to “marry” one of her father’s friends!
Hiding out in a biker club wasn’t where Haven thought she’d be, but better than the alternative.
She wants to move on, she wants a life, and when her friend Cora tells her to write a list of things she wants and wants to do, Haven thinks it’s a good idea.
The list starts off short and grows longer within a day, also on that list is Dare, and all the things she’d like to experience!
I’ve not read any books by this author. But I have heard of her. And gets this as a free read definitely helped😉
MC (Motorcycle Club) books usually aren’t my thing, but I did like the premise of this book, and it’s been on my kindle for a while (2018!) so I thought I’d give it a go….
The Ravens aren’t your typical MC (but then most of the MC books claim that!) they help those in need. And Haven was definitely in need! Coming from an abusive and controlling family life, Dare knows all about that kind of life. She’s hiding in the clubhouse after they were rescued from another biker club, (her best friend Cora was with her) they need somewhere to regroup and then find a new start.
The attraction between Dare and Haven is practically instant. But Dare shouldn’t really get involved with her, she’s too young for a start, too innocent and someone they are helping (and you don’t take advantage) but there is something about her that makes him question his own existence, he didn’t think he needed anyone in his life, but Haven looks good in his home and in his bed, they know it’s only a matter of weeks before she has to move away, but suddenly Dare wants more, can he really keep Haven?
And her father is still looking for her! He’s also offered a reward for information on her whereabouts and her return! He’s not going to give her up, will be she able to evade him for much longer?
I have a feeling it’s a spin off from another series (Hard Ink Series) but I don’t think you’ll need to read those (although it might show us how Haven and Cora got captured, and then met Dare)
But I’ll have to look into that series 😉
Definitely a book I’d recommend and a series I’ll have to read😉and possibly the Hard Ink Series too (will my reading list ever shorten? Probably not😂)
