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.

It was one of Maverick’s favorite dreams.
He and Alexa had gone up to Swallow Falls in Western Maryland for a weekend getaway and were staying in one of the mini cabins at the state park. After a day of hiking and swimming and picnicking outside, they’d come back to their cabin tired and ready to crash, but getting naked for showers had sidetracked them for hours. And even once they finally fell asleep, Maverick was hard and ready every time he woke up, and he took her again and again, falling asleep still buried inside her . . .
And fuck if he wasn’t ready right now.
He burrowed his face in Alexa’s soft hair and banded his arm around her stomach. His hand filled with the soft mound of her breast. He pulled her back against his chest and ground his erection against the swell of her ass.
“Maverick,” she moaned.
Hell, yeah. He nuzzled her neck, kissed her there, tasting and nipping and sucking. God, he needed in her. “Fuck, Alexa,” he whispered.
Her hand gripped his. “Maverick.”
He rolled her under him and crawled on top of her, his body falling into the cradle of her spread thighs.
He frowned and kissed her jaw, her cheek, her mouth. It was the kiss that did it. Something wasn’t right. The memory playing out in his sleep-fogged mind didn’t feel like the reality confronting his physical senses. His eyes blinked open. And he found himself lying on top of Alexa. Not in the cabin at Swallow Falls years before. In the gray morning light of his house. Her wide hazel eyes stared up at him.
He reared off of her in an instant. “Fuck,” he said, coming to stand by the couch. Alexa looked stunned—and so fucking sexy that Maverick barely resisted crawling back on top of her. She lay on her back in his clothes, on his couch, her knees drawn up and falling out, her hair sleep-mussed and sexy. Jesus. He adjusted himself, unable to hide his raging hard-on, and scrubbed at his face. “Goddamn dream. I’m sorry, Alexa. I didn’t mean to do that.”
“You . . . you were dreaming. Of me?” she whispered.
Ride Rough is the second title in the Raven Riders series, and features Maverick Rylan and Alexa Harmon. This is a gritty second chance romance, that is both sexy and suspenseful. Maverick and Alexa's story is well written, with complex characters, that is emotional, intense, fun, sexy and sweet.
I absolutely adored Maverick's character the Vice President of the Rough Riders, he's dedicated, loyal, sexy, bossy, protective, but also sweet and tender. I found Maverick to be completely endearing.
This book will pull out deep feelings, as it's features abuse, which is not an easy subject to read at times. Mav and Alexa's story also has tender, passionate and moments of heartfelt romance.
I found that at times I struggled with some of Alexa's choices and found her a bit confusing with her indecisive nature. Her character did grow on me as the story line progressed.
The sexual tension is incredibly thick between Mav and Alexa and their chemistry is undeniable, strong and believable.
I loved the banter between the characters, and not only Mav and Alexa. I loved that so many of the characters we were introduced to in the first title, Ride Hard appeared within the story line and I particularly enjoyed the interactions between Mav and Dare.
With a great blend of drama, danger, love and suspense I was completely engaged and captivated with Ride Rough. This story line is full of twists and turns, that I quite enjoyed and recommend to anyone who loves a romantic suspense or unique MC read. I look forward to Ride Wild, the next title in this unique and entertaining series.
