REVIEW TOUR: Ride Dirty by Laura Kaye


From New York Times Bestselling author Laura Kaye, comes RIDE DIRTY, a new novella in her Raven Riders Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!



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.

With every new thing he shared, Caine felt like a thin filament stretched between them, anchoring them together. The connection between them was growing, strengthening. He could feel it like he’d never felt anything before.

He was getting attached. To that feeling. To Emma herself.

It was what he’d always wanted. It was the thing he feared the most.

But right now, he had it. He had her. And he wanted her…

“Stand up, Emma.” The questions in her gaze quickly shifted to understanding, and she rose above him. His hands went to her waistband and quickly bared her. Caine pulled her until she stood with her feet on either side of him where he sat leaning against the front of the couch. “I want my mouth on you again.”

The moan that spilled out of her at the first swipe of his tongue went right to his cock. He unzipped his jeans and shoved them down his thighs. Then he held her open with his thumbs so that her clit was right where he wanted it to be. He sucked and flicked and nipped until she was thrusting against his face. He groaned his approval. Her hips became more frantic. “Caine,” she cried hoarsely, her knees going out such that she nearly collapsed into his lap, still shaking.

He took advantage and kissed her, wanting some part of him inside of her while her orgasm wrung every second of pleasure out of her.

“Jesus, your mouth should be illegal,” she said, chuffing out a breathless laugh.

“You say the nicest things,” he said, the playful words probably masking just how much he lapped up her praise. “Will you take me in you?”

She didn’t hesitate—she shifted to her knees. They both shucked their shirts. He pulled his last condom from his wallet and rolled it on.

She impaled herself on him, inch by soul-stealing inch. “You fill me up so good,” she said.

The echo of his earlier thought stretched a new filament of connection between them. “Ride me, Emma. Show me how you like it.”


Sonja's Review

I got Ride Dirty before I even checked out the synopsis because I love the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club series, but when I found out that Caine was the hero, I can’t tell you how excited I was to read it! I’ve been wanting his story since the very beginning and man oh man, I can tell you that Ms. Kaye did not disappoint. It was even better than I could have ever imagined — I just loved Ride Dirty so hard — it was spectacular! 

Emma is impossible not to love. She’s sweet and kind and down-to-earth. She’s full of light and spirit and so much life. Emma truly understands Caine and she’s patient, but she also challenges him in every way. Emma just has a heart of gold and a kind, warm soul and I couldn’t have loved her anymore if I tried. 

I noticed Caine from the very beginning and I wanted nothing more than to read this quiet, intense man’s story, but none of that prepared for when I was actually able to. I’ve read a lot of tortured heroes with horribly tragic pasts in my day — mostly from Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunters series and if you’ve ever read her, you know she’s the Queen of Past-Life Angst — and while the ones I read about now hurt my heart, none of them touch me like Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Styxx, but Caine did. My heart ached for him, he brought tears to my eyes, and I just wanted to wrap my arms around him, squeeze him tight and never let him go. Caine touched my heart with his heartbreak, with his sweetness, and his absolute love for Emma. He’s my favorite hero in this series now and I honestly can’t ever see anyone else taking his place — he’s just that wonderful and special. 

Ride Dirty is a novella, but it has every bit of heart and soul as one of Laura Kaye’s novels — maybe even a little bit more actually. It was full of light and dark, sweetness and heartbreak, fiery passion and utter devotion. Ride Dirty was beautiful, heartrending and outstanding — I wholeheartedly loved forever it and a day. 

Ride Dirty can be read as a standalone, it’s told from Caine and Emma’s POV, and they do get their well-deserved happily-ever-after that put a grin on my face and left me feeling all warm and toasty inside!

Sonja's Review

I wanted to read Wild in the Windy City: The Anthology Volume Two when I saw that J.D. Hollyfield was one of the authors that had a story in the anthology. She’s one of my favorites and I’ll read anything she writes plus there are more authors on here that I’ve been meaning to read, so it was a no brainer that I would get Volume Two. Although I have only read Ms. Hollyfield’s "Exquisite Taste," I definitely plan to visit this collection again! 

But let’s talk about "Exquisite Taste" for right now. It might just be a little preview for right now, but oh, I can’t wait until we get the full story because even this short story was excellent! I loved Jensen immediately, she’s spunky and sassy and smart and so much more. And I loved, loved, loved Damien! I fell hard for Creed in all his darkish, rough, hard glorious self in Creed’s Expectations and I just want all of Ms. Hollyfield’s heroes to be like that and I can’t tell you how happy I was when I realized that Damien was going to have that similar rough, dark jerkishiness as well. I’m just so excited for more of "Exquisite Taste" to come, I seriously cannot wait! 

I also can’t wait to read the other short stories in Wild in the Windy City: The Anthology Volume Two! I’m looking forward to discovering new authors and finally getting to cross off some authors on my Authors To Read list for the first time. And if any of the stories are like "Exquisite Taste," I know the rest of this anthology is going to be utterly fantastic!
