About Ride Wild (Raven Riders #3, 10/31/17)
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.
Ride Wild is the third novel in Laura Kaye’s sexy and exciting MC series, Raven Riders. The Raven Riders are a group of guys who go around and actually do good by helping those in need such as victims of domestic violence. Ride Wild is the story of Cora Campbell, (Haven’s friend from book one.) Cora is still living at the Raven’s compound, but she babysits for Raven Sam”Slider” Evans
Slider is a single dad since his wife passed away from cancer, and his two boys Sam, 10, and Ben, 6, adore Cora. But Slider refuses to get involved with another woman after what his wife did to him. Besides, everyone leaves him and the only people he can trust are his sons.
But Ben and Sam are determined to keep Cora around, even going so far as to ask their closed off dad to hire on Cora as a live-in nanny. Cora has had a life of not being wanted and thrown away. She loves Ben and Sam, the Raven Riders, and her bestie Haven. But can she take a chance on a man who she thinks still loves his wife and doesn’t want her? Cora becomes ill and Slider discovers his feelings may go deeper than he realizes.
Laura Kaye takes the MC romance and turns it on its head! These aren’t your typical bikers, and you can’t help but fall in love with these hot and sexy alphas! (Their women are pretty special too!) You need to grab this series, you won’t be sorry!
“Hey, Cora,” he said, his gravelly morning voice so damn sexy.
“Hey,” she said, tilting her head back to look him in the eye. She wondered if she should get off him, but didn’t really want to.
Not making any move to get up, Slider just looked down at her. “How you feeling?”
“A lot better,” she said, hyperaware that her hand was lying on his chest. His heartbeat faintly registered against her palm. “Still achy and a little off, but better.”
“Good. You should probably take it easy today, though. Whatever that was isn’t likely out of your system yet.”
She nodded. “I will.”
Talking like this, their faces so close, felt so damn intimate that Cora could almost imagine that nothing existed outside of Slider’s bed. She almost didn’t want it to. Especially when his arm squeezed a little tighter around her shoulders and brought them just a little closer. Cora shifted into his embrace, pressing her chest totally flush against his die, and sliding her thigh up until—
Oh, hell. Until she felt the part of him she’d accidentally seen. And it was hard.
He sucked in a breath, and his hand clamped around his thigh. “Shit, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean—”
She placed her fingers loosely over his mouth. She didn’t want him to apologize. Or explain it away. Or push her away.
Cora knew she shouldn’t wan the things she did, but that didn’t make her desires go away. It felt good to want Slider, it made her feel normal, even if she was a little nervous. After what her father had done, that seemed like a victory she didn’t want to relinquish.
And, oh, now that she was touching his face, she really didn’t want to stop. His lips were full and soft under her fingers, his stubble was more ticklish than prickly, and his cheekbone was prominent under his skin.
He licked his lips, and her gaze latched on to the movement.
“Cora,” he rasped, his cock getting even harder against her thigh.
His arousal fueled her own, her hips tilting with the need for friction. The movement had her grinding herself against the firm muscle of his thigh and made both of them suck in a breath. His grip tightened on her everywhere. His arm holding her tighter yet to him, his hand pulling her thigh wider across him.
Her fingers returned to his mouth again, and traced across his lower lip. His tongue flicked out and swiped at her pointer finger, and Cora was instantly wet. Trembling with need and adrenaline and the fear that at any second, he would cut this off, Cora shifted ever so slowly, ever so slightly, bringing her face closer to his. He watched her like she was a tigress about to strike, but just as her mouth almost reached his, he flipped them and pinned her to the bed.
And Cora realized she had it all wrong. He’d been the feral animal about to attack all along.
Slider wrapped himself around her, his forehead against hers, his arm around her shoulder. She pulled him closer, needing his touch, needing his comfort, needing him.
Eyes still flooding, Cora heaved a deep breath, then another, until her breaths were shuddering but becoming more even. But her eyes wouldn’t stop leaking. Damnit.
“Come here,” Slider said, his voice full of grit. He pulled her off the bed and into his lap there on the floor of her bedroom.
Cora wrapped her arms around his neck. “Just being stupid,” she said.
“No way,” he said. “Big hearts are bound to get bruised, Cora, and yours is the biggest I’ve ever seen.”
And now she was crying again. She laid her head on his shoulder, her face pressed to his neck, and cried herself out until she was limp and exhausted. He rubbed her back and stroked her hair the whole time, just holding her and being there for her. And, man, that would’ve been enough. But it was the little kiss against her hair that had her too-big heart feeling entirely too full for her chest.
For being wrecked, broken, and more than a little lost, Slider Evans had a well of sweetness so deep that Cora wasn’t sure how she’d ever find her way out. Or if she even wanted to.
On another deep breath, Cora finally lifted her face and met Slider’s blazing light green eyes. He cupped her face in one big hand and swiped at her tears with his thumb, but it wasn’t enough, so he lifted the edge of his shirt and used that instead.
Cora managed a chuckle, even as she messed him up to put herself back together. “Sorry.”
“Don’t be,” he said, his voice full of gravel. “Aren’t we a pair?” He swallowed hard. “You feel so much, and I can’t feel enough.”
The words were so revealing that they nearly made her gasp. “Oh, Slider,” she said. “I think you feel more than you let on.” She hadn’t meant her, but the flare of those strange eyes told her he took it that way. And it made her want to backpedal. Fast. “I mean—”
He kissed her. Hand in her hair, his lips came down on hers in a soft press of skin on skin. It wasn’t the frenzy of their first kisses in his bed, but there was an intimacy in the softness, in the sweetness that hit her just as hard.
When he pulled away, his expression was intense and thoughtful, like he wanted to say something and needed to figure out exactly what it was. And then he nailed her with a stare and said, “Cora, you—”
Knock, knock. “Dad?” Sam called from outside Cora’s door.
