About Ride Rough (Raven Riders #2, 4/25/17)
Maverick Rylan won’t apologize for who he is—the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club Vice-President, a sought-after custom bike builder, and a man dedicated to protecting those he loves. So when he learns that the only woman who has ever held his heart is in trouble, he’ll move heaven and earth to save her.
Alexa Harmon thought she had it all—the security of a good job, a beautiful home, and a powerful, charming fiancé who offered the life she never had growing up. But when her dream quickly turns into a nightmare, Alexa realizes she’s fallen for a façade she can’t escape—until sexy, dangerous Maverick offers her a way out.
Forced together to keep Alexa safe, their powerful attraction reignites and Maverick determines to do whatever it takes to earn a second chance—one Alexa is tempted to give. But her ex-fiancé isn’t going to let her go without a fight, one that will threaten everything they both hold dear.

“Ride with me.” The words flew out of Maverick’s mouth, and he didn’t want to take them back even though, fuck, it put him out there to be smacked down again. But damn if it wouldn’t be worth it to feel her holding him, pressed up tight against him, laughing in his ear.
Alexa hesitated and maybe even looked a little nervous, but Maverick could see the interest in the liveliness of her eyes.
“Don’t think. Just say yes,” he said.
Alexa tilted her head and narrowed her gaze at him, and then she smiled. “Okay. Yes.”
That’s my girl. He kept the sentiment to himself, but he felt it down deep. His Alexa was in there. The one who could throw caution to the wind and have fun doing absolutely nothing. The one who laughed freely and bantered relentlessly. Maverick gave a single nod.
“Let me tell Mom. Be right back,” she said.
“I’ll bring the bike around.” Maverick took a step backward, but then paused when Alexa turned and hurried toward the house. His gaze traced her curves and lingered on the bare skin of her thighs. Thighs that were going to be wrapped around him in just a few short minutes. Thighs that had been wrapped around him in all kinds of ways many times. Many times. Fuck.
A few houses down, Maverick straddled his Harley Night Rod Special and brought the engine to life on a low rumble. He pulled the bike to the curb in front of the Harmon house and waited. He didn’t have to wait long.
Alexa came flying out through the garage. She made eye contact with him and it fucking seared his blood. For some reason this ride felt weighted with a significance he couldn’t put into words. And he wasn’t trying. He was just going to enjoy the hell out of it. Because Maverick knew her agreeing this one time didn’t change anything. Not anything important.
By the time she reached him, Alexa was smiling even though he could tell she was trying to hold that shit back. But she couldn’t, and that got to him, too. For a moment, she hesitated, like she wasn’t sure what to do. No way that was it, though, because even though it had been years, she’d been in his saddle as many times as his bed. He suspected the real issue was giving herself permission to do what she was gonna have to do—get close and hold tight. To him.
Something she hadn’t done in years.
But then she did it.
This was a good book! This is Maverick and Alexa's second chance love story. Maverick is the VP of the Raven Riders MC. Alexa's brother was a member of the MC and Maverick's best friend. They dated and loved each other, but when Alexa's brother died in a motorcycle accident, she turned away from him and the club. Fearing that he would face a similar fate, Alexa broke up with Maverick. She threw herself into her education and business, making a "safe" life for herself . Now it is five years later, Alexa has moved on and is engaged to Grant. But things are not as they seem with her perfect life. Grant is abusive and Alexa runs to Maverick and the MC, who is known for helping abused women. Maverick wants to help Alexa and he knows he should never have let her go. He helps her get out and stay safe. Spending time together again makes them both realize that they never stopped loving each other and were never going to let each other go again.
I really liked both Maverick and Alexa. Maverick was so sweet and protective with her. He was a near perfect hero. Alexa was strong and sassy. She had been through a lot but learned from her past mistakes. Now that they are both more mature, they can see that they were always meant to be with each other. They were sexy and swoony together,
There is some suspenseful times when Grant isn't willing to let Alexa go without a fight. He makes trouble for her and the MC. But it all works out in the end. I enjoyed catching up with the rest of the MC. I think this was my favorite book in this series so far. There were some times when the book was a little slow moving and drawn out, but, overall, I very much enjoyed Maverick and Alexa's love story.
This is a very sweet, low relationship angst, suspenseful, emotional and sexy read! Ride Rough is a great addition to this series!
