Laura Kaye comes to the blog today with a new to me series and the third in her Raven Riders contemporary motorcycle romantic suspense series. Please read on for my review of
The first I’ve read in this series, the story is based on widower Slider, a member of the Raven Riders MC, and his two sons Sam and Ben, and his slow recovery after his wife’s death. The past two years have been a struggle for him: he’s retreated from everyone in the club, his friends and anything other than work, his sons and the endless loneliness he feels. Obviously still reeling from grief – he can’t find the way to make things better, but being both mother and father, and supporting the family is starting to overwhelm him. He knows he needs help with the boys, so he turns to the best friend of his club’s president’s girlfriend: Cora.
Cora and her best friend Haven have found security, acceptance and safety with the Raven Riders, and for now, security and safety are all that Cora wants. Men and relationships don’t enter into her plans: a cruel and abusive father taught her early on that to rely on and love someone could be detrimental to her health and happiness. But when the offer to be the nanny to Sam and Ben appears, Cora is interested and hopes to make some small difference to the boys who are so obviously hurting. Her caring nature, sense of fun and patience instantly speak to the boys, and they are quickly coming to love her. Slider isn’t concerned, much, for he wants the best for his boys, but he can’t help seeing the changes that Cora is bringing about for him.
Oh the chemistry between these two is wonderful – and they are both so wounded from their pasts that slow and gentle is the way to go. And the boys and their obvious affection for her, along with their brighter demeanors and cheerful outlook show Slider that Cora was absolutely the right decision. And then, in one moment everything changes. Cora sees something that she shouldn’t have – and the safety she’s pulled around her like a cloak is jeopardized. It’s a turning point for Slider: he must protect Cora: the woman who loves his sons and who showed him the p0ossibility of hope and happiness – or run the risk of being worse off without her. Kaye plays on every emotion – hope, sadness, fear, attraction, humor – and takes us on a ride that lets readers in and shows that finding your place in the world is never without risk, but always well worth the chance.

Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders...
Wild with grief over the death of his wife, Sam “Slider” Evans merely lives for his two sons. Nothing holds his interest anymore—not even riding his bike or his membership in the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. But that all changes when he hires a new babysitter.
Recently freed from a bad situation by the Ravens, Cora Campbell is determined to bury the past. When Slider offers her a nanny position, she accepts, needing the security and time to figure out what she wants from life. Cora adores his sweet boys, but never expected the red-hot attraction to their brooding, sexy father. If only he would notice her...
Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and yearns for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn’t have, the new lives they’ve only just discovered are threatened. Now Slider must claim—and protect—what’s his before it’s too late.
