My favorite of the series! Slider is a single dad that has distanced himself from those he loves. It takes an amazing woman to make him open up to possibilities and return to the fold.

I loved how the story came together. This was what I wanted from the series. It’s got heart, a solid plot, great character development and hot chemistry. The kids were used well to add emotion to the scenes. I enjoyed the glimpses into past couples and the reinforcing of the Raven Riders as guys willing to toe the

If you have been following the Raven Rider’s Series, Sam “Slider” Evan’s story has been my highly anticipated read and how could it not be. Hot single widowed dad. Check! Two adorable sons. Check! Sweet caring nanny. Check! Smoking hot chemistry. Check! Raw palpable love story. Check! Check! Check! So yes, you can imagine my anticipation for Slider’s story and let me just say Laura Kaye did not disappoint at all.

In Ride Wild we have the third installment in the Raven Riders Series....the sexiest and breathtaking series that Laura Kaye has brought to her readers. In every installment we have been given, we get in touch with this unique MC....a group of brothers that love to ride free, have each others backs and never give up on each other.

In this brilliant installment, Ride Wild, is a romance that pulls you in for the wild ride and refuses to let g

Awwww! This MC read gave me ALL the feels. I loved Slider and Cora both together and in their own right. I was curious about Sam 'Slider' Evans because he was almost a peripheral member of the MC in the previous books - always carrying an air of sadness and weariness about him since his wife's illness and death , he was there but not there. It was like someone had dimmed the brightness in him. But then Cora arrived and slowly but surely she chipped away at the wall he had

I should know it better than picking up thia book. Ride Hard did not work for me because stupid naive heroine. I thought Ride Wild is better due to RT nomination.

I give it a try until 4th hour of the audiobook ans give up. The hero and the heroine are suck. Just suck!

Argh. I'm annoyed. Because this was easily going to be a 5 star read up until the 50ish% mark when the syrupy cheesy dialogue took over out of nowhere and ruined the beautiful momentum and sexual tension Kaye created in the first half. Whhhhhhhhy? I loved gruff, heartbroken, grieving, world-weary Slider Evans slowly falling for Cora Campbell. The slow tentative build up was so good, believable and delicious. But then Kaye had to freaking ruin it after the couple finally have sex with t

My absolute FAVORITE of the series! These characters were EVERYTHING! Laura Kaye SLAYS in this genre EVERY SINGLE TIME!

RIDE WILD, book three in Kaye’s INCREDIBLE Raven Riders series, took me on the RIDE of my life, charming me with each turn of the page with the gruff and broken Slider, and the charming yet feisty Cora Campbell. These two are a match made in MC Romance heaven! I loved their banter, their chemistry, their
‘Ride Wild’ focuses on the emotional journey of a widower struggling to get his life back, though it isn’t for the reason every one imagines it to be. It’s only the arrival of a babysitter (a secondary character who escaped the clutches of her evil father in previous books) needing her own sense of worth and identity that his life starts to turn around.

By and large, that was done fairly well. I did like Slider and Cora together, because both did seem ready to move on, needing only the right moti

This is the 3rd book in the series and each one seems to top the next. This one ticked all my boxes: single parent, grieving widow, smart and resourceful heroine, a little bit of intrigue and a whole ton of steamy romance. Loved this one.

The synopsis grabbed me and I hung on for the 'ride'. I am such a fan of the broken hero. We have seen Slider in the previous books but always on the outside--not behaving like the rest of his brothers. And Cora has her own demons to slay but she is wi

I'm doing my happy dance!!! I have been in a bad reading slump and this has hopefully pulled me out!!

I absolutely loved every single bit! I really don't know where to start with this review because this book went from a good story with two people I was already rooting for from the previous book, to a surprisingly personal and emotional trip down memory lane. It is definitely my favorite of the series so far.

I guess I will start with Slider. I am completely in love with Slider.

As the saying goes .... she had me at hello :) This book had me from page one. I could not get enough of this story. Was it the single parent aspect? Was it the nanny/boss aspect? Was it the children themselves? Was it the club? YES, YES, YES and all the YESs! I've loved this series from the beginning and if you've read it from the start as I have, then Cora is someone you've already met.

Cora was the biggest surprise to me. She's a beautiful person inside and out; a force to be reckoned with, if

Ride Wild was the third book in the Raven Riders MC series by Laura Kaye.

We met Slider and Cora in previous books. Slider was the gruff, moody, loner who was raising two young boys alone after his wife died of breast cancer two years prior. He used to be lighthearted and fun, but he was no where close to that man now. He was grieving but not everything was necessarily as it appeared.

Cora was Haven’s best friend from book one, Ride Hard. She was the snarky, humorous, care free friend to everyone.

Author Laura Kaye’s Raven Riders series continues in Ride Wild and the book was aptly named on several fronts. A man whose life was torn apart by his wife’s death and is barely keeping it together for his boys and a young woman who is determined to find happiness in her life find just what they need in one another. Sweet and sentimental, yet racy and raunchy, with a bit of suspense thrown in to keep it interesting Ride Wild was a very good addition to this series.

Emotional, Sweet, Raunchy, with a bit of Suspense.

The Raven Riders series has fast; become a favorite with me. I like how the Raven Riders MC band together to help those in need, but just not those outside the brotherhood, but those inside as well. It’s an emotional heartfelt series.

If you have read the other books in this series you already know Cora Campbell. And if you are like me you already loved her before this book. She is such a sweet, lovable, funny and very loyal character.

The Ravens helped to free Cora & her best friend Haven from a bad situation. Now her friend Haven has found love and is starting a new life. Cora is ready for it to be her turn. She has been helping out one of the members of the Raven’s by babysitting his kids and when he offers her a
It can sometimes be hard for me to write a review for a Laura Kaye book just because I like to think we're friends after having met a few times at signings (you know how it is book nerds, haha) and I never want to disappoint a friend. Lucky for me Laura always gives me a book that I thoughrly enjoy and in this case one that I LOVED.

Cora came to stay with the Ravens with her best friend Haven when they took them both in to protect them from the homes they had fled from. Cora is so happy that her best friend has found love with Dare and can only dream of one day finding her own happy ever after.

It really took me a bit of time to read this book. It really didn't hold my interest too much. I had little desire to go back to reading this book. It felt slow in places and I didn't really connect to Cora's character.

The ending was a bit better but this really didn't do much for me.
Gretchen  (About That Story)
This series keeps getting better and better (and I already thought it was pretty fantastic)! Slider and Cora coming together was amazing. I loved the story, the kids (hello single father!), and the transformation of healing that love brings. It was sweet and sexy with just the right amount of drama, and it was filled with so much emotion. Excellent read!

Since the very first book, I've wanted to know all about Slider and Cora and I love every detail I learned as I watched these two find their way
I loved this book!!

This is the book I have been waiting for, the book I was hoping for, and I am ecstatic at that Laura Kaye gave me everything I wanted and more!

With Cora, it was love at first sight for me; she has an undeniable quality that just appealed to me, and I knew her story would be fantastic, because she is unforgettable; Slider was very enigmatic, and Cora paired with Slider is a literary dream come true! Never has Ms. Kaye written such multifaceted characters as Cora and Slider; they have both suffer

To be quite honest, I wasn't really looking forward to Slider's story, because I found him hard to connect to in previous stories. Likewise, Cora was a character that I was also unsure of when I went into starting this book. By the end of

Review For: Ride Wild by Laura Kaye Ride Wild by Laura Kaye is book Three in the "Raven Riders" series. This is the story of Sam “Slider” Evans and Cora Campbell. This is the first book I have read in this series, so for me this was a standalone book. Cora had a non caring father we learn along with a best friend who had the opposite type of father. Haven's father was all controlling and Cora had to help her friend get away. When the Raven Riders ended up saving them from kidnappers Cora decided ...more

There are some authors that you just love their writing. For me Laura Kaye is one of them. I'm not a fan of the motorcycle themed romance and yet here I am reviewing Ride Wild.


Because as a author she makes you want to know the people she writes about more. So when you meet them in one series, you have to carry on with them in theirs. So far I've been really enjoying this series. The characters are a mix a tough
Slider and Cora had rough pasts to overcome and that made their romance all the more sweeter! I loved Slider’s boys, Ben and Sam, and their adorable charm and humor. And the unquestionable love and support the Raven’s freely gave..awesome and admirable. The dog fighting was difficult to stomach because it boggles my mind that people are that depraved, so I was thankful the details weren’t terribly horrid, but just enough to get the point across. Overall, everyone gets some part of a rainbow afte ...more

Sam "Slider" Evans has been living a half life since the death of his wife. He has pulled away from his brothers in the Raven Riders and is focused on raising his two young sons. He is moody, intimidating, quiet, and appears void of emotions.

He needs help with the boys, so Cora Campbell has been babysitting for him. She was rescued by the Raven Riders along with her best friend, Haven, who is now in a relationship with the club president. Cora is honest, sarcastic, caring, but has had h
The first I’ve read in this series, the story is based on widower Slider, a member of the Raven Riders MC, and his two sons Sam and Ben, and his slow recovery after his wife’s death. The past two years have been a struggle for him: he’s retreated from everyone in the club, his friends and anything other than work, his sons and the endless loneliness he feels. Obviously still reeling from grief – he can’t find the way to make things better, but being both mother and father, and supporting the fam ...more
