Maverick Rylan was on a mission to protect the woman he loved even if she didn’t want him. He saw that Alexa was in a tough situation, though she had not connected the dots yet.
Alexa Harmon had everything she wanted or at least she thought. She will start to notice changes in her fiance which will start to scare her. She will find help with her ex and his motorcycle club.
Ride Rough is the second book to the series Raven Riders by Laura Kaye. I enjoyed this book but not as much as the first book. For me it started out a little slow and the battle between this other gang really didn’t add to the story, at least I thought. It wasn’t like the Churchgang which was in Hard Ink series. I think the best part of the book was Maverick’s character.
Maverick was a man who would do anything for those who he loved. He had made a mistake five years ago and didn’t fight for Alexa, well he is making up for that time missed. I loved the interaction he had with her cat, Lucy. It was adorable. Alexa’s character was a battered woman in an abusive relationship. She was using the classic lines that it wasn’t the man’s fault. She did this too herself. Now her relationship wasn’t really about physical abuse but verbal abuse was there and Grant was very intimidating. Though it will get to physical abuse but it is more subtle than a beat down. You wanted Alexa to fight and to step away from him and to believe in herself. She will make the decision on her own but with the help of Maverick.
The third book is coming out this October which I am looking forward to reading. The book will feature Cora and Slider.
