KIM’S REVIEW

I have enjoyed the prior two books in the series, but Ride Wild is my favorite so far!

Cora is Haven’s best friend, but even her bestie doesn’t know the extent of how bad Cora’s situation had gotten before they were able to escape their old lives. Cora is grateful for everything the Raven Riders have done for her, but she is feeling a bit lost as she tries to figure out what she should do with her life now.  The bright spot in her days arrives when she is babysitting Slider’s two sons Sam and Ben, and those two kids have wormed their way into her heart with ease.  As for their dad- well, the jury is still out, but things are about to take an interesting turn…

Over the last 2 years, Slider has been a man lost to grief over the loss of his wife to cancer as far as anyone else knows.  He has pulled away from the club and his brothers, living only for his boys and barely going through the motions of life at best. Cora has brought a much needed spark of happiness to their home again, and his kids aren’t the only ones who have noticed. Cora is inspiring feelings in him that he isn’t sure he wants to entertain since everyone he has ever loved in his life (with the exception of his boys) has abandoned and/or disappointed him thoroughly up until now.  Little by little, Cora starts to pull him out of his shell and glimpses of the man he used to be start to make themselves known.  When Slider realizes how much time he has lost with his boys and his friends by being stuck inside his own head for so long, he decides to put in a real effort at returning to the land of the living and that includes letting Cora in as long as she is willing to have him.

The transition from employer/employee to friends to lovers was very well done! There is no insta-love here but rather a slow buildup of trust with a side of UST thrown in- and when they give in, they are both scorching and have a touching connection. He shares the pain he has been hiding from everyone, and she reciprocates by telling him the story that even Haven doesn’t know that still gives her nightmares on a regular basis. Her relationship with the boys is an added bonus of warm and gooey feelings, and once I picked this story up I didn’t want to put it down.

There is still plenty happening outside Slider and Cora’s bubble though. An old enemy is still trying to make trouble for the Riders, and Cora unknowingly steps into the fray when she stumbles upon an exchange she was never meant to see.  Soon the bullets are flying and the club is racing to protect their loved ones while trying to finally put an end to the threat that has been a thorn in their side for far too long. The theme of brotherhood, club and family is strong in this story as Slider finds his way out of the darkness and embraces the person he used to be before tragedy and heartache struck. Haven, Cora and Alexa have all been adopted into the MC family and that inclusion means everything to the women, especially Cora who has never felt loved or needed by anyone besides Haven in her life- until now. The storyline surrounding Cora’s work at an animal shelter broke my heart a little bit given my love of animals and the two rescue mutts that I call my fur babies but all in all I loved this addition to the Raven Riders world!
