Ride Dirty: A Raven Riders Novella book 4 by Laura Kaye
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laura Kaye comes a new story in her Raven Riders series…
Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.
But then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.
Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.
But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

Caine is scared both inside and out, born to a crack addict mother and a father who liked the bottle! Put in care homes and then homeless, he’s not had it easy, trust needs to be earned and not easily given.
In the MC subculture the Sergeant-at-Arms is responsible for ensuring that the Bylaws and standing rules of a club are not violated, and that orders of the chapter officers are executed in an expeditious manner. … The Sergeant at Arms is the head of security of the club and also the personal bodyguard to the President.
Emma loves Christmas, it’s a season she loved with her grandmother, she can’t wait to wrap presents and eat lots over the Christmas period. But first she has to deal with a mugger! Luckily she’s saved, but by a biker! She’s expecting to be mugged from this guy as well, but instead makes her feel safe.
Oh this was such a good read (wish it had been longer) Caine not thinking he’s good enough for anyone, especially not a kindergarten teacher.
“You’re a kindergarten teacher,” he said, his eyes tracking her every movement. Hands full, she moved toward the table and then laid out the place settings. “And?” she said with a little laugh. “What does that mean?” His gaze narrowed. “Kindergarten teachers are like…paragons of innocence and sweetness.” Emma waited for the punch line, humor bubbling up inside her. And then she started chuckling. “Oh, man, would my friend Catalin get a kick out of that.” She shook her head, laughter still bubbling up inside her. “When she gets worked up over something, she swears like a sailor. That’s just a reputation because our job entails being cheerful and patient, and having a willingness to not take yourself too seriously, and playing with glitter and fuzzy pom-poms alongside teaching letters and numbers and social skills.“excerpt from Ride Dirty
Emma is such a good person, she’s sees the best in everyone. Loves her job, in fact loves life, the interaction with her dog was so cute.
And Caine’s reaction to the dog was hilarious. I don’t think he knew what to do with it.
Caine has been in all the books, but not too prevalent, he’s mostly been in the background, so it was nice to drag him into the spotlight.
He doesn’t expect kindness from anyone, he expects just to be used. He’s had that all his life, and the I’ve person he tried to look after does in a fire at a young age, so from them on, it’s no connections, his biker buddies are family, but still not a proper connection.
He needed Emma to show him not everyone is out to hurt him or use him.
Hoping there are a few more books to this series.
