Publisher's Summary

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....

I knew Laura Kaye was good after following her Hard Ink series but nothing could have prepared me for this awesome ride as she introduces you to the Brothers of the Raven Riders MC. At first LK introduces the cast of characters, outlines their backgrounds and describes the Club, it's motto, banner and beliefs.... all whilst she's also threading and easing the plot securely into place - that of Haven and Cora. Two young women who'd been on the run from abuse, mental cruelty and, in Haven's case, from her Crime Boss Father who'd kept her as his pawn, his possession, his prisoner... but never his loved daughter. Now, because of some 'shit out of luck' circumstances that led them to be penniless and kidnapped, the two women were cautiously optimistic, rescued and safe - protected by the Raven Riders but for how long because Haven's Father WOULD come.... it was just a matter of how and when.

Then, after LK had skilfully first done the groundwork and laid the foundations, she then went on to build the connection and growing attraction between Drew, the 37 yr old Club's ruggedly handsome but haunted President, and Haven, the shy timid 22 yr old beauty, who'd caught Drew's attention. And their journey to a HEA went from sweet and tender, through tentative and touching, veered into sinfully sexy, pit stopped at Crazytown where heartbreak, anguish, drama, bloodshed and death waited.... until they finally reached their destination - the flashing neon lights of a HEA ending.

I loved this listen and the time LK took to describe the characters, their personalities and backgrounds and the solid brotherhood vibe between each member of the MC and they weren't dirty talking 1%'ers with badass attitudes. Instead they were a caring, friendly and protective group who often rescued and relocated abused women, but don't get me wrong, they still wore cuts and shitkickers, had Club sweet bloods, did shady deals, had weapons, swore and rode Harleys. They reminded me of the Black Dagger Brotherhood (which is, IMO, high praise indeed) because you could feel the love, respect and trust between them and the 'all for one' attitude. Dare was charismatic, sexy, strong and thoughtful and Haven went from being a frightened mouse into a courageous deadly lion and together they saved each other. Dual POV's, great story that also drew in the Hard Ink men and a wickedly talented narrator because Abby Craden can do many voices, both genders, a sexy male voice and inject all the passion and emotion needed to push a great book into a truly captivating and riveting listen.

Worth a credit? One million x YES.... and, if you love good MC books as much as I do, then you too will find this creditworthy and I hope that this series will build, grow and go from great to legendary. And I can't wait to see who's next - because LK has outlined a few deserving characters who desperately need their HEAs too.

Yes please!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Love, love the tough guys with hearts of gold! This is the perfect recipe for action, thriller, suspense and oh ya, yummy to the 10's. Loved the entire series but I think this book was the best until the very end of the last book. All in all, curl up grab the book and shut off your phones!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Had a special place in my heart for so many it would be impossible to single out just one.

What does Abby Craden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is mega talented in so many voices that seemed to be so separate from all the rest.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did! Yep, truly did.

Any additional comments?

The narrator during the "intimate" readings reminded me of a "D" rated adult film. Sorry, just kinda lame.
