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 do ...more
Enjoyable read but lighter than I expected.
This was a very different MC read, the Raven Riders protect the weak and vulnerable and as such it's a much softer read than I was expecting.
Haven has lived an isolated life, her father Randall, head of a criminal organisation and a truly evil man withdrew her from school and started homeschooling in the tenth grade so he could control her every move. She served as a cook and maid and at times was treated no better than a dog, the final straw came when ...more
It's hard for Haven to trust though so she's still weary and shy around everyone, choosing to stay in her room most of the time. When her friend convinces her to get out and meet some of the men ...more
Ride Hard is all over the place. All the wrong place. The character development is zero. Dare and Haven are one dimensional character. Haven is the queen of doormat. She is tryinvg too hard to be a virgin while she is being dumb and stupid. Dare is confusing. His insta attraction toward Haven is without base.
The MC gritty dark world is also ...more
I read romance because, typically, it's written by women for women. For every time I throw my fist in the air and yell "Preach!" while reading a Dahl heroine and for every time I become a sobbing mess feeling the pain of a Milan heroine, I'll keep coming back because in some way my issues and emotions are laid bare, acknowledged, and discussed.
I want to call this a New Adult but with a hero who is 37yrs old, can I? The heroine is 22yrs old and she was definitely not written for me. The ...more
I really struggled with this one. To be fair, I didn't realize it was a spin-off of (and strongly related to) her Hard Ink series, which I didn't finish. So I felt a bit lost and like I was missing something.
I didn't like how it started with the hero nearly (view spoiler)[getting it on with another chick before he sees the heroine and then BOOM, has insta-lust for her instead (hide spoiler)]. I just didn't care at all for the characters, and it really dragge ...more
It was very easy to fall in love with Dare and Haven’s story. Dare was the President of the Raven Riders MC and their mission included helping the less fortunate. They provided safety and security to victims of domestic abuse and aided in deve ...more

“I’m fucking starving for you. All the time. You think you’re not wanted? I want you. I want you so much I don’t know what I’m doing half the time. Every minute of every day, all I can think about is you.”
I loved this author’s Hard Ink series, and was very excited to see that there was going to be a spin-off MC series.
Laura Kaye is famous for her action-packed and very sexy RS romances, and this book was no exception. I enjoyed the romance between Dare and Haven. I liked the instan...more

“Just try to remember that those who’ve seen the most ugliness are also most able to recognize beauty. It comes down to trusting yourself as much as other people.”
This book, and the series, is another Laura Kaye masterpiece. Hands down and no doubt about that.
Raven Riders Motorcycle Club is not your typical MC. They are a brotherhood, a family, with a mission to be something more. And they are something more. We’ve met them (if you haven’t, you should) in the ...more
This was not a typical biker read for me and I have to be honest, once I started reading this I could not put it down!
The Raven Riders are not like a stereotypical motorcycle club. They raise their hands but not to hurt people, to extend it for support. They like to help people who can't do it themselves. They offer safety and protection to vulnerable people that they cross paths with. Especially those who find themselves in situations of domestic violence. Don't let me confuse you tho ...more
Ride Hard is the story of Haven Randall, a woman who escaped a life of captivity. She had no idea what was on the other side, but it had to be better than where she was.
On the outside, Dare Kenyon is the classic bad boy. A brooding, tattooed, biker. Inside he has a heart of gold. He’s the president of Raven Riders and their mission i ...more
Series: Yea. I'll read more if they are free or library.
Sexy times: Yea. But nothing I remember. Terrible of me, right?
Plan on reading more by the author: Oh sure. I've got some in my backlog right now.
Synopsis: Basically the heroine, Haven, is on the run from a terrible dad. This woman likes to bake and be helpful which are both redeeming qualities, but that's about it for her. Dare, the dude, is your very typical biker dude. Like nothing really s ...more
Dare was the Raven Riders President. We met him previously in the Hard Ink series. He was fair and always had the best interest of his MC family and justice first.
Haven was running from her past. We met her in the series prequel, Hard As Steel. She had been a hostage but had been rescued by the MC and was hiding amongst them until she could be completely free and safe.
Haven was shy and extremely cautious of others, especial ...more
I don’t read MC romances that often, which is a shame because I enjoy them so much! There’s always something so gritty and addicting about MC reads, and that description can definitely apply to Laura Kaye’s Hard Ride. It’s the first book in a brand new series, featuring the Raven Riders MC, a club dedicated to helping those who can’t protect themselves. It’s a suspenseful, sexy read that gripped me – it’s a little slow at times, but otherwise, thi ...more
I've been waiting for this story for a while and Laura Kaye never disappoints me. I do have to admit it started off kind of slow. I didn't really start to get vested in the story until about the 30% mark. At that point the story started to take off for me and it was fast paste from there. This book is very low on the Motorcycle Club wtfery scale. In fact The Raven Riders are a band of brothers dedicated to helping those that can't help themselves. They try very hard ...more
This was an okay read, both H and h are likeable.
I do prefer that the H be a bit more protective and possessive, and although you could definitely tell H loved h he was willing to send her away because her father was looking for her. She only stayed at the end because she shot her father after he shot the H. I would have liked to see him fight for her to stay but sadly didn't see that.
Also, this book is pricey, maybe I was on high because it was pay day LOL but I wouldn't pay $9.99 for ...more
“I need you to try to judge me on my actions and my words, not on the actions and words of people who came before me in your life.”
Obsessed! Laura Kaye has me loving Ride Hard, the first installment in her new series The Raven Riders. I practically devoured this book in one sitting. It was gritty, beautiful, sexy, raw and emotional. This book hits you hard as readers are submersed with layers of romance, suspense, and second cha ...more

In this offshoot from the Hard Ink series, The Raven Riders are an MC whose motto is Ride, Fight, Defend. That’s pretty much all you need to know - they aren’t your one percenters and in fact actively try to be anything but. While biker books are usually on the grittier side of romances, the Raven Riders are kinder, gentler folk. They definitely fall in the 1-2 (for some violence) on the WTFery scale, so it’s completely safe for my fluffy bunny friends.
Dare, the Club President, grew up in that o ...more
This is an MC read that will grab your heart. Dare is the epitome of the dark, brooding, quiet MC President. He protects his men, family and his heart. Having previously lost his Mother and brother he never wants to go through that again so he keeps his heart out of any liaisons. And although there have been a number of liaisons, he is 37 after all, he never comes across as a player. The MC help victims of abuse and occasionally relocate people. Haven and Cora are two girl ...more
