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.

Maverick is VP (Vice President) of Raven Riders MC (Motorcycle Club) he loves his biker brothers and would do anything for them.
He owns the custom bike shop that they all use and he gets a lot of outside customers. It’s the one thing he’s really good at.
They protect those who can’t protect themselves.
He knows all about that, coming from an abusive family background, he didn’t realise his dad beat his mum, she hid it until the bruising became too bad! So now he’s super protective of all those he loves. He won’t let that ever happen again!
But one love got away, Alexa Harmon, they hung out together as teenagers, they loved one another as young adults, but that love when tested failed, and they weren’t together anymore.
But that’s not stopped him from loving her, he regrets those five long years they were apart, and now given a second chance, he won’t screw it up…..
Alexa balances a lot on a daily basis, a sick mother, a demanding job, and a fiancée who is driving her crazy!
Trying to finish her schooling so she’s a qualified designer is proving difficult, she needs time to study and finish off, but with the wedding looming, Alexa feels like she’s running on empty.
She’s also noticing a change in Grant (her fiancée) more demanding, more controlling and just MORE!!
Is she just imagining things, or is he as bad as people say he is?
I liked this one, I’ve liked Maverick from the beginning, his mum is a biker “old lady” and he’s always felt guilty that he couldn’t protect her from his abusive dad. And in one of the earlier books, she got beaten up!! So his guilt is sky high!
I liked the second chance theme in this book. Misunderstandings, fear and just being too young kept this couple apart. But when Alexa needs him, he’s all over it.
Alexa was a character, she might have been beaten down, but she wasn’t ready to give up. Losing her father and her brother was hard. Having to fight her mum on her hoarding habits was proving challenging. But it’s what families do.
Love the interaction between the bikers, the solidarity, they’ll drop everything at a moments notice.
Then we have Alexa and Grant her fiancée, reading how little things weren’t adding up. It screamed control freak and a bully.
Again a beautifully written book. The story engages you and keeps you there.
Hoping more books will come along.
