Ride Dirty by Laura Kaye Blog Tour

Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders…

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laura Kaye comes a new story in her Raven Riders series…

Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.

But then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.

Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.

But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

***Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.***

“What are you doing to me?”

“Trying to let you know I care,” Emma said. Like it was obvious. Like it was normal. Like it wasn’t blowing his goddamn mind. And then she just kept right on doing it. “For almost three weeks now, you’ve inhabited my dreams and dominated my thoughts and…” She ducked her gaze.

“What?” he rasped, dying for her to continue. He rolled them, pinning her under him. And, damn if that wasn’t a heady thing, especially as she went soft and pliant, her cheeks filling with a pink heat he tasted with his tongue. “And what?”

“And made me so horny so often that I feel like I’m going a little crazy.”

Trapped in between them, his cock was so demandingly hard that his hips surged against hers. “Christ,” he bit out, half wondering if he was asleep in his trailer having a dream from which he never wanted to wake. Because stuff like this didn’t happen to him. “I’ll get you off again. Gladly. Did you like my mouth?”

Her eyes went wide. “I freaking loved your mouth. Did you really need to ask?”

“I just want to be good for you.”

“Then just be you. I’m crazy about that mouth, but I’m also crazy about the rest of you, too.” Her arms looped around his neck and her fingers played in the back of his hair. It was only a matter of time… Her fingers moved over the ruined skin above his hairline where the hair didn’t grow right anymore. She didn’t say anything about it, but he didn’t miss the questions that passed over her expression. “Kiss me?”

On a groan, he did. His mouth found hers already open, her tongue meeting his lick for lick and stroke for stroke. She moaned and shifted beneath him, her knees pulling up and opening so that his hardness lined up with her sweet heat. They kissed until he couldn’t breathe and didn’t want to, not if it meant parting from her, and then she rolled her hips and ground her core against him. Once, twice, three times. God, she could use him like this forfuckingever and he’d die a happy man. Or as close to happy as he was capable of. “Yeah, Emma. You want to get off on my cock?”

Her eyes were soft and hooded and so full of desire that he thrust himself and met her hips as they rolled again. “Yes,” she whispered, panting against his lips. “I want you. All of you.”

4.5 stars of sweet and dirty!

This is a great book for a Ravens Riders fan, but also an excellent starting point for any newbies to the series. We get a good insight into the ethos of the club, without any sugar coating, but we don't delve too deeply into the MC world either.

Caine is just brought to life in this book as a man who has suffered such damage as a child that his protective and caring behaviour is a testament to his strength of character. How he finally finds someone who understands and accepts him is an absolute treat to read. There is a lot of sadness revealed in the story, but also some moments of real fun. Chewy's lick at the most inappropriate moment and place is just the funniest thing I have read in ages!

I also loved Emma, she shows great strength, reserves of calm and good sense, and yet is wild and wicked when in the arms of this man. As the story unfolds and the twist is revealed, it is very endearing to watch everything come together for these two people who previously functioned best alone.

Thank you, Ms. Kaye, for creating such a satisfying story in a novella.

Caine is the Sargent-at-Arms of the Raven Riders MC, he is the loner of the group. He doesn't like to talk much because that leads to questions which leads to asking about his past. He doesn't talk about his past, so staying away from his brothers is the best way to not have to talk about his past. While on his way home one night, he swings by the house of a woman they are protecting to make sure she is safe. When he hears a noise, it makes his skin crawl. It is a whimper of a woman and a bark of what seems like a small dog. When Caine gets close, he sees a woman being attacked. He rushes to help her but gets tangled in the dog's leash and the attacker gets away.

Emma Kerry is a kindergarten teacher who lives alone since her grandmother died a few years ago. She does have her beloved dog, Chewy. While on her way home from the store one night, she is attacked. When a man comes to help, Chewy seems to wrap his leash around the man and the attacker gets away. At least she and her dog are okay. But her purse and everything in it, including the medicine for her migraine is gone. At least she still has her cell phone.

While Caine wants to make sure Emma is safe, Emma isn't sure she can trust him. He looks intimidating after all. She wants for the locksmith to show, she notices Caine is sitting in the cold waiting, watching, just to be sure her attacker doesn't come back. After the locksmith leaves, Caine checks Emma's windows, locks, and doors before he leaves to be sure she is safe. He isn't going to leave her on her own if he can help it. While Caine is checking her place a few days later, he sees signs that someone has been trying to get into her house and he doesn't tell her, because he can watch from a distance and keep her safe.

As Caine and Emma get closer, he doesn't know how she will react to his past and he doesn't want to tell her. Can Emma see that what happened was when he was a child and not his fault? Can Caine realize that what happened all those years ago was not his fault? Will Caine and Emma have a chance at a future if she can help him move from his past?

I have loved everything about the Raven Riders series and loved Caine and Emma too. His pain and heartache will make you cry and want to hug him, and this story will leave you feeling so much love for Emma and Caine. I hope there will be more from the Raven Riders one day. I recommend reading the whole series, but you can read them as standalone stories and you will not want to miss any of the stories. So, sit back and enjoy the ride with Laura Kaye and the Raven Riders. I hope you love them as much as I do.

Caine is a hard man. He's lived a hard life and despite having a biker family, he is still quite the loner. When things are hard, he takes off riding to clear his head. But he always returns to his family. While he's clearing his head, he happens upon a mugging and does what he can to stop the attack.

Emma is a quirky, outgoing elementary teacher. She is all alone in the world, except for her friends. She loves her job and knows that even though her friends think she might be a little boring, she's content. When she finds out that someone might be after her, she can't understand it at all.

Caine is drawn to Emma and Emma to Caine. They both don't know much about each other but know that they have an undeniable pull towards each other. Caine will stop at nothing to keep Emma safe and Emma wants Caine's protection.

I was able to figure the mystery out, but I bet a lot of readers will be surprised. I really enjoyed this story and hope more are to come!

I was completely obsessed with this book from the very first page – absolutely loved it!

Caine is a biker who came from a terribly rough past. He’s dedicated his life to helping others and when he comes across a woman, Emma, being mugged, he jumps in to help her. When the mugger escapes with Emma’s wallet and keys, Caine makes it his own personal mission that she make it home safe and stay that way – even if it means camping outside her house 24/7. Emma has an immediate attraction to Caine but they’re from different worlds – Caine a rough around the edges biker and Emma a sweet kindergarten teacher. Emma has decided on her own mission – Caine.

I just loved every aspect of Caine and Emma’s story. It’s fast paced, has a ton of intrigue, is super hot, and has fantastic characters. This is definitely a one-sitting type of book because once you start it, you won’t want to put it down!
