4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Dare Kenyon, the Raven Riders MC President, will do anything to protect his brotherhood of bikers. When they take in two women in need of a safe haven, he finds himself falling for the first time. But will her family prevent them from having a future together? 

I am so glad we got a spin-off series because the Raven Riders were great side characters in the Hard Ink series. I really enjoyed Dare and Haven’s story. Haven was an innocent woman who has never been able to live her own life. Now that she is at the Raven’s compound, she finds herself struggling to find her true self and do things she was never able to do. I loved Haven. She was a survivor who was trying to live her life to the fullest. She is the perfect partner for Dare because she brings a softness to him that has been missing. 

Dare is a protective alpha male who had a very rough childhood. That has prompted him to change the Raven Riders to a more legal and community oriented club. They protect those who need it and I really love that about this group. How can you not love a group of burly bikers who take care of women and children in need? Dare was just a great hero who made Heaven feel safe and protected for the first time in her life, and I loved him so much for it. 

Overall, this was a great start for this spin-off series. I loved that we see the partnership with the Hard Ink gang is still there and they are still helping each other. I can’t wait to see which Raven will fall in love next. 

Trigger Warnings: 

  • Haven and Dare were both abused in the past by a parent. 
  • References to kidnapping, gangs, and human trafficking.
