Contains: language, explicit sex (18+)

Brotherhood. Club. Family.

They live and ride by their own rules.

These are the Raven Riders . . .

Raven Riders Motorcycle Club President Dare Kenyon rides hard and values loyalty above all else. He’ll do anything to protect the brotherhood of bikers—the only family he’s got—as well as those who can’t defend themselves. So when mistrustful Haven Randall lands on the club’s doorstep scared that she’s being hunted, Dare takes her in, swears to keep her safe, and pushes to learn the secrets overshadowing her pretty smile.

Haven fled from years of abuse at the hands of her criminal father and is suspicious of any man’s promises, including those of the darkly sexy and overwhelmingly intense Ravens’ leader. But as the powerful attraction between them flares to life, Dare pushes her boundaries and tempts her to want things she never thought she could.

The past never dies without a fight, but Dare Kenyon’s never backed down before . . .

Outside of that first chapter (where I hadn't planned to continue, then months later I picked it up again), I really enjoyed this one. Turns out this is another Laura Kaye series to get hooked on. I'm not generally an MC club reader, as they generally contain unappealing topics outside my comfort zone. But I loved this gentler MC club. No, they aren't perfectly above the law, but their gray areas were palatable for me. Dare won me over and Haven was a great match for him. I loved his gentle, protector side, and I loved how she embraced herself. There's a bit of an age gap, but I didn't find it off-putting. Considering their respective histories, they were a wonderful match for each other. As Haven's past caught up with her, I felt the tension of the story heat up, and I loved that this was a great combination of budding romance and danger. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.
