This is not a new author to me, new-ish I would say, I have only read a couple of her books! So far I have been looking forward to this one very much!! I am a dye hard fan of biker anything!!

This started of a little confusing to me. I wasn't sure to what was happening right away but once I kept reading it all came together. When Gage meets Lily 'Lil' McMillan, a hell on wheels girl, it's a BANG! Both of these characters are a lot of fun & something mo

First off, this entire crew is absolutely amazing and I’m just going come out in say it now, but Mace is my favorite and I already want to claim him. Now, onto Mace’s cousin, Gage, and his best friend, Lil.

This book starts 4 months in the future so the prologue is a little confusion but it all makes sense as you read through the rest of the story. Thinking back to the prologue after finishing the book, it truly breaks my heart to know what happened.

I absolutely love Lil. As Mace puts it, she is

Oh my word! I have a special place in my heart when I first meet authors who contact me and have me fall in love with their writing. I feel I have a special connection with them seeking me out and wanting to hear what I have to say about their words. It means a lot. The first time I read this author blew me away and now here, the third book I have read from her and I’m speechless. I had to shush my husband so freaking much because he kept talking during this book and I locked myself away to read ...more

Ride For Me is a book that will gut you to the core and heal you all in time. Gage and Lil will take you on a ride that is full of twists and turns, dips and peaks and have you needing to hang on tight. The connection between these two is like an electric storm brewing and the closer it gets the more sparks that will light up the darkness. Not only will these two find their way under your skin but the entire crew will be right there with them. This story had me angsty, frustrated, swooning and a ...more

A new to me author, VR Baucke turned out to be quite a surprise. A story of second chances, Gage has experienced great loss and sorrow and decides to stop wallowing in his life and move with his cousin to work in his Uncle's construction business. What he was not prepared for was the "crew" that his cousin Mace was part of and I do not mean his work crew. Mace and his friends shared a deep bond. They were there for each other through thick and thin. He was most taken by Mace's friend Lil and her ...more

Ride For Me, is my first novel by VR Baucke and what an amazing start to a long lasting author addiction.

Being a kiwi girl myself, I feel it's easy to get hyped and bias when it comes to reading a kiwi authors book. However New Zealand folks are honest and straight forward, so all that I have to say in my review is based off of a readers POV not a loyal kiwis. In saying that I will make one bias comment, "I'm not at all surprised that a kiwi author delivered an incredible book hehe!!"

Receive this ARC for an honest review.
This is my third book from this author and I am very surprised by this book, I love it and then I hated and then I loved it more.
I am not a huge fan of suspense and surprise in my romance book and yes this had both but I loved it....I held on too my seat and then I found myself yelling at the book.
This book has the real meaning of what a group of friends should be,they were honest, likeable, respectful and the love between them all was so well written I cou

This is first VR Baucke novel and I’m really looking forward to reading her other books. I really enjoyed her writing style, it kept my interest and at times had me laughing out loud. I absolutely loved all the New Zealand slang throughout as well.

It started off a little confusing for me but as I kept reading things began falling into place.

Lil is as Mace puts it hell on wheels. She’s definitely a free spirit and has so much sass. Gage is such a broken man from all he has been through in his p

This is a new author to me and she did a great job of making me fall in love with Gage and Lil. They are both complicated characters with pasts they both are having trouble getting over. This book takes you through the turmoil they both are going through to let each other in their lives. This book takes you through some pretty strong emotions but you will appreciate the ride. A good read!

This was a wild ride I'll tell ya, with all the little twists and turns you'll be kept on your toes
Lil was a firecracker, she was fiercely loyal to her friends but she has had her fair share of heartbreak and when she meets Gage its up and down from the start.
This was a real slow burn and you really got to feel for the characters, and the side characters.
Gage.. where do i start? He has his demons, vaild demons and he tries to keep Lil at arms length. I liked him though he was broody but loveable

Getting to know The Crew in Ride For Me is quite a nail biting experience. These characters are so easy to fall in love with, relate to and I felt as though I was one of them.
They are simply perfection.
All throughout this novel I was caught giggling or in absolute fits of laughter, amazed by their bond and loyalty and totally blown away by the events VR Baucke has conjured up to make such an exquisite read.
My favourite parts were upon hitting those anticipating, heart throbbing scenes that have

That Prologue. It sucks you in right from the beginning. The author does a great job at making you fall in love with the whole crew of friends and sets it up for their books nicely. That last 25% was intense! Great book especially by a debut author.

This is the first book I have read from VR Baucke. I have to say that the story was very well written. The story was all consuming and I found it hard to put it down. Lil, is a fraternal twin who has had her heart ripped out by a former bf, while Gage has a brooding mess and still heart broken from his first love Lotte. Together they cant stay away from each other at first. But together they can heal each other, but that is if Gage is willing to open up to her and come to terms with the loss of ...more

VR Baucke did a great job on this story. Ride For Me was a great story, it was well written and had a great plot that was filled with so many feelings. Lil and Gage were strong characters, both have been through so much in their lives. Lil, you instantly loved her, the girl is fierce, one tough cookie. Gage and Lil were good for each other, they made a strong pair, the completed each other in a way that both needed. The connection was strong and their chemistry was sexy. They were great togethe ...more
