There’s a new deputy in town, and she’s a law unto herself.

Jeremiah Church is still aching for justice to be served after his father’s murder. Though the killer has been caught, the authorities are no closer to knowing why the Churches were targeted—and if the family’s still at risk. When Miah receives an anonymous letter hinting at a darker conspiracy, he decides it's h

We finally get Miah’s story in Ride It Out and I couldn’t be more pleased. I felt bad for him when Raina didn’t return his feelings, and moved on with Duncan. I’m happy that they’re a couple, but I wasn’t thrilled that Raina would pass up Miah, because I thought he was such a catch! Well, her loss, and I can’t help but think Miah is better off without her. Miah’s always been a favorite of mine because he’s been the one of the Desert Dogs that wanted to settle down with a wife and family, and I d ...more

I’m a fan of Cara McKenna’s work, and I was looking forward to this book for several reasons. I had so many questions—who would Miah end up with? Who was behind the deaths of his dad and his friend, Alex? How deep did the corruption in the Sheriff’s department run? I did get all the answers, but the story was lifeless and Miah and Nicki fell flat. I wanted the mystery solved, but I had to force myself to keep reading. I’ve never felt that before with any of Ms. McKenna’s books. Miah and Nicki ar

I've previously read a book by this author that was a really good read so when I spotted this book I didn't hesitate. Now I didn't realise it was part of a series but it actually worked quite well as a standalone as I easily understood what was happening. Perhaps it would have been more of an anticipated read if I'd read the previous books but it certainly didn't take anything away for me.
Ok this book features Miah who is kind of in a slump and really just going through the moti

RIDE IT OUT is the fourth book in the Desert Dogs series by Cara McKenna. This is a series that is a little bit different than your traditional biker series and it has it’s pros and cons I think. What I like about this series is that you get some really great writing from McKenna. You can tell she spent some time deepening the characters to make them different. However, there is a harrowing tone to this entire series. I find that whenever I read this series, I feel a little bit depressed.

The last Desert Dogs story and it was one I was highly anticipating. Miah, who has been crushed by unrequited love and then the loss of his father, gets his story at last. And what an engaging story it was.

As I just said, this is the fourth book in the Desert Dogs series. Each book has presented a new mystery and new couple, but there is an over-arcing plot that ties them all together with Ride it Out bringing things full circle and tying up the loose ends for the four friends and everyone else

This has been an up and down series for me. I liked book one and two quite a bit, I didn’t care for book three and this one ended up being just okay. It starts strong. Jeremiah Church, who goes by Miah is still reeling from his father’s murder. His father was killed, and then the barn he was in was set on fire, to make it look like an arson. The druggie hired to kill him, died in an overdose before he could talk to the police. Miah is desperate to find out who hired this guy to kill his father, ...more

The Desert Dogs series by Cara McKenna comes to its dramatic and sexy conclusion with Ride It Out. While each story in the series (with the exception of a mid-series prequel novella) has had a complete couple romance, the mystery that started with a dead cop in book one has expanded and involved more than one member of the close-knit group of friends who make up the main characters in the series. Accordingly, this review may contain spoilers for previous books in the series and they are best rea ...more

Wraps up the overarching plot in a satisfactory manner. Miah's emotional funk was well-portrayed, too. The romance didn't really grab me, though.

Best possible ending to the series!
A bit too sweet at times but perfectly fitting for Miah!

This was a long-awaited but fitting end to a great romance suspense/crime series which I enjoyed a lot. I've loved Miah all through the series and was so happy how it all turned out for him in the end. It was a struggle, not what he planned or expected but oh, so worth it and happy making.

We kept getting glimpses of his characters throughout the series and we got more insight into his

I liked this book. I liked the chemistry between the MCs, particularly. I liked that the hero was really struggling with grief, and basically a mess, and still shone through as someone it made sense that the heroine would fall for. The moments between them when they are alone, and their romantic arc, were the best part of this story for me. I liked watching them connect over their shared experience o

Ride It Out was all kinds of yummy-- strong heroine, gentle hero, a bit of mystery and suspense, some up front and honest loving. It was exactly what I expect from McKenna and so very good, yall.

DNF at 28% because I was bored and felt not one whit of attraction to the male lead. He's handsome and hardworking, but he keeps doing stupid things. And he's very square. I'm not interested in being in his head any longer.

The female lead is interesting - a single mom cop with a preteen son who are the only black people for miles. A story through her eyes might be interesting. Not this dull white guy.

The mystery/suspense is dull. There's a mysterious bad guy who I don't care about. Ho hum. But t

White authors should never attempt to write a black characters. It’s ALWAYS offensive. They are ALWAYS offensive...and wrong.

I've been reading some really good books lately, but when the opportunity arose to read new Cara McKenna I jumped on it! Though I love her and have read a lot of her work - I haven't read the other books in this series. I'm not sure how that colored my opinion, but I can say that I really enjoyed this delectable little book without having all the back story.

RIDE IT OUT is a solid read with a slow-burning romance that balanced well with the mystery and suspense of the storyline. Nicki is a tough single mom, takes pride in her job and cusses like a sailor. I adored her. Jeremiah, or Miah as he’s often referred to, is a steady hero, hard-working, prideful and equally strong. He pairs beautifully with Nicki. I really enjoyed the story.

Too slow and sleepy.

I was disappointed. This is not a case of "saved the best for last". Took me a long time to read. The things that stand out out are, there was no angst, no build up to a relationship, no chemistry between the characters. One minute they're just seeing each other when they have everyday business, then they're sleeping together. The race to find the killer was a bit mundane too. Just very slow and languid read. No strife anywhere.

I got about 10% in before I had to pick the book up with tongs, place it in a plastic bag, seal the bag, place the bag in a box, seal the box, but the box in a chest, seal the chest, and the coat the entire thing in concrete and chains before finally tossing it in the ocean where it can curse future generations.
