Aug 20, Lover of Romance rated it it was amazing Shelves: In every installment we have been given, we get in touch with this unique MC In this brilliant installment, Ride Wild, is a romance that pulls you in for the wild ride and refuses to let g This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance In Ride Wild we have the third installment in the Raven Riders Series In this brilliant installment, Ride Wild, is a romance that pulls you in for the wild ride and refuses to let go until your breathless and wanting more.

Laura Kaye has outdone herself with Ride Wild. Ever since I read book one Ride Hard I was captivated by these Raven Riders, and with each book, I only become more fascinated by these men and women who steal my heart.

In Ride Wild, our story sets off with a character that we have seen since book one but have yet to see her story.

A young woman who is carefree, strong willed, and loves a good party. But she has a past, a dark one, just like everyone else that is part of the Raven Riders.

Cora Campbell has been babysitting for "Slider" two adorable boys who lost their mother to cancer two years previous. All three boys are still struggling to get back on their feet and find some joy in life again.

Cora makes these two young boys come alive, she makes them smile and be happy. But their father is much more complex and will take much more work.

Slider also has a past, a secret he has had to keep from everyone, but it haunts him every day. When Slider offers Cora a position as his "nanny" to provide more for himself and his boys, she agrees.

But with Cora living in the same house, sparks sly between Slider and Cora and their attraction builds into something more real and permanent.

But reality comes crashing down when Cora becomes embroiled in a plot, a dangerous one that could put all their lives in danger and it will take the whole workings of the club and their fellow friends to bring down their enemies and find peace once again.

I was lucky enough to read this one on my day off. So I could just enjoy the wild ride that Laura Kaye has given us.

I have just loved her characters, and how she just draws people to her. You see how her personality brings out the best in people.

But in this book, we see a deeper side to her character. We see the demons of her past that become unveiled, and my heart just went out to her.

I love seeing how it hasn't broken her, only made her stronger. The charming way she is with Slider's two boys, is so tender at times.

I know having kids in a romance may not be for everyone, but honestly Laura Kaye totally worked this element in all the right ways.

She had me wishing these two boys were my own. Then we have the romance that builds between Cora and Slider.

These two are just made for each other. They really balance each other's strengths and weaknesses in the right way. Of course there are plenty of hot and heated moments between these two but not too much to overkill the plot either.

It was simply great seeing these two connect on various levels. Their relationship felt so realistic to me, its probably why I was so captivated by their romance.

Slider and Cora are a unique couple, and they just rocked this book in multiple ways. Look at this face. Look into these eyes. And never, ever doubt that you're looking at your biggest fan, your staunchest defender, and the man who will always hold you up and have your back.

The plot of the story that really will give you tingles up the spine. Even though I love that Laura Kaye brought this element into the story to give education to the readers, it will still heart wrenching to read.

I had no idea that this was even done in the real world, and it only added authenticity to the story. I definitely recommend that readers watch out with Ride Wild because this book will take you on twists and turns, adventures and thrills, with some dangers along the way and a wonderful blend of passion, true love and the great unit that is the Raven Riders.

Buckle your seats because this is a ride you won't want to miss!! Cora already knew where she belonged. And Slider already knew she was his forever.

And they both knew love. I loved gruff, heartbroken, grieving, world-weary Slider Evans slowly falling for Cora Campbell. The slow tentative build up was so good, believable and delicious.

But then Kaye had to freaking ruin it after the couple finally have sex with t 3. But then Kaye had to freaking ruin it after the couple finally have sex with the constant pouring out of feelings and "sweetheart" endearments jumping out of Slider's mouth that's littered throughout the rest of the story.

And out of all the damn endearments that exist, why did it have to be sweetheart? I just fucking hate that endearment so much.

It's like nails on a chalkboard for me. And I usually love endearments but the one I can't stand at all is 'sweetheart' because it comes off so patronizing even when it's not meant to be.

It also comes off unrealistic and trying too hard the more it's used. I usually let these kind of things go when it's not so obvious or obnoxious.

But here it was everywhere in the last quarter of the book that it became distracting and watered the characters down a little for me.

And that bothers me. My issue is not just the use of it, my issue is that out of anyone Slider of all people would not be using that endearment and so much like this.

Yeah he's a complete softy underneath but he never struck me as one who is flowery with his words and pouring it on so thick too, even when not grieving.

So yeah it was overkill and just so unnecessary. Especially having the couple confess ILYs at the halfway mark was kind of jumping the shark.

Not that I wasn't buying the ILYs, I definitely bought these 2 falling for each other, I just wish Kaye paced things better in the later half.

The dialogue and tone in the second half started to eerily remind me of another author who does this very OTT sticky sweet thing which turned me off completely from their writing.

I really hope Laura Kaye doesn't fall in that same rut of a pattern. The constant gasping and "sweet man" remarks?

Just typing it makes my eye twitch. But other than that, I enjoyed the slow build up in the first half and Slider's 2 boys little Ben and Sam were the sweetest things.

Gosh they were adorable and broke my heart. Laura Kaye really knows how to pull at the heartstrings when she wants to.

View all 4 comments. Oct 09, Shayna rated it it was amazing Shelves: These two are a match made in MC Romance heaven! I loved their banter, their chemistry, their intense passion they had for one another.

This man has been through HELL, and yet he has the strength to raise and provide for his children. Nothing else matters but his sons and he is just going through the motions day by day.

Sweet and lovable Cora Campbell makes it a little bit easier, blending into his family so perfectly. They both can fight their attraction tooth and nail, but in the end, the passion and connection win out.

The love that they have for Cora is so heartwarming and cute, I could barely take it! All in all, Laura Kaye swept me right off my feet once again with her flawless writing and amazing and lovable characters.

The Raven Riders have become like family to me and it was hard to say goodbye to them, but the epic journey in meeting all of them and watching them find their other half was one I will never forget!

You will NOT be disappointed! By and large, that was done fairly well. I did like Slider and Cora together, because both did seem ready to move on, needing only the right motivation to do so without the usual push-pull dance that most pairings undergo.

Slider had my sympathy when his reasons for withdrawal from everything became clear, as did Cora—to some extent—as she struggled with trying to figure out her life at Nov 01, Stacie rated it it was amazing Shelves: I'm doing my happy dance!!!

I have been in a bad reading slump and this has hopefully pulled me out!! I absolutely loved every single bit! I really don't know where to start with this review because this book went from a good story with two people I was already rooting for from the previous book, to a surprisingly personal and emotional trip down memory lane.

It is definitely my favorite of the series so far. I guess I will start with Slider. I am completely in love with Slider. In a general book loving gal kind of way, he is perfect in my opinion.

In the beginning of this story and in the previous books, he was almost completely closed off and very emotionally damaged. The only two people he could muster any life for were his two sons.

I love me an emotionally damages man. He's a single father of two adorable little boys, dealing not very well with the loss of his wife to cancer.

Or so everyone thinks that was the extent of the damage. Well, this was where the personal comes in. The other part of the situation with Kim, his deceased wife, he was trying to navigate.

I observed the almost exact same situation happen between my own parents when I was Only my father had cancer and my mother was the caregiver.

I am so happy and thankful to say my father did not pass away at that time. He lived a full healthy happy 20 more years before The Big C took him away.

However, because of the situation some of the early years after he was in remission were very strained between he and I.

I am so happy we recovered our relationship before it was too late but in the beginning, even being so happy he was alive and well, it was hard. I told that personal story to say that, I may love Slider a little more than my normal book boyfriend love.

I have the utmost respect for him because I have seen with my own eyes and felt with my own heart, the emotional tole that situation can take. The courage and strength it takes to set aside personal feelings to do what he did is significant.

And it was written very well in this book. Slider was emotionally damaged, but what was hidden beneath his pain was a really funny, protective, loyal and super sexy man.

He was alpha without being overbearing and he was a really great dad. All good and wonderful things! Cora had gone through and survived her own very significant trauma.

She had some emotional scares as well, but she was very strong. She was so supportive and loyal to her bestie, Haven. She had a big caring heart for the people she loved, for animals, and she was very funny.

Cora was the kind of girl that I'd like to be around. She had no TSTL moments. I thought she was going to, but she reigned it in and was quite smart actually.

Slider and Cora were absolutely perfect for each other. Their relationship evolved in a mature and authentic kind of way that I enjoyed reading.

Sam and Ben, Slider's boys were very good characters and added a lot to the story. I'm a sucker for the kids.

They were pretty much the catalyst for Slider and Cora finding each other. Plus, again, I could relate to Sam. This book can absolutely be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend the series because it is so good!

Very low on the wtfery MC scale. The raven Riders have a mission to help, much more than harm. They try hard to stay on the right side of the law, though it may be crossed sometimes in order to completer their mission.

I personally like that because MC book can get out of my comfort zone real fast. There was some intense club action in this one.

Especially toward the end of the book, but it was mostly about Slider and Cora building their relationship.

I hope this is not the end of the series. Nov 01, Suzi Obsessive Reading Disorder rated it it was amazing. This one ticked all my boxes: The synopsis grabbed me and I hung on for the 'ride'.

I am such a fan of the broken hero. We have seen Slider in the previous books but always on the outside--not behaving like the rest of his brothers.

And Cora has her own demons to slay but she is wi 4. And Cora has her own demons to slay but she is willing to go the extra mile.

She falls in love with Slider's boys first and then slowly helps him remember that he is a man worthy of love again. We get to see most of the rest of the MC.

It appears as though the ongoing story line of someone framing the MC for something they didn't do, resolves in this book. You never know what may pop up next!

Great addition to the series. Looking forward to more, more, more! Nov 06, Heroesinbooks rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved Slider and Cora both together and in their own right.

I was curious about Sam 'Slider' Evans because he was almost a peripheral member of the MC in the previous books - always carrying an air of sadness and weariness about him since his wife's illness and death , he was there but not there.

It was like someone had dimmed the brightness in him. But then Cora arrived and slowly but surely she chipped away at the wall he had 5 Cora and Slider Stars Awwww!

But then Cora arrived and slowly but surely she chipped away at the wall he had put up around himself and his two boys. Watching Slider change back to the fun, sweet and passionate man he once was , was just gorgeous to see.

For being wrecked, broken, and more than a little lost, Slider Evans had a well of sweetness so deep that Cora wasn't sure how she'd ever find her way out.

Or even if she wanted to. Slider has been to Hell and back. I often steer away from books about dead spouses but I was already hooked on this series and I was itching to know about this quiet man.

Well, I'm so glad I did read it. I never once felt that Cora was competing with a dead wife for Slider's affection but equally Slider never diminished the importance of his wife in the respect of being mother to his two sons.

They are so well written - never precocious but always so endearing and funny that I just wanted to take Ben and Sam home. Supporting characters play a huge part in this story and there is plenty of drama and tension to balance out the romance.

If you are a fan of a less gritty MC read then this is perfect. It does have dark moments - animal abuse is prevalent and distressing to read but this is tempered by how sweet Cora and the Evans men are towards animals.

I really, really enjoyed this story about a sweet heroine and her handsome, loyal and heart stoppingly lovely Biker. Left me beaming ear to ear.

These two are totally into each other and so loyal. This series keeps getting better and better and I already thought it was pretty fantastic!

Slider and Cora coming together was amazing. I loved the story, the kids hello single father! It was sweet and sexy with just the right amount of drama, and it was filled with so much emotion.

Since the very first book, I've wanted to know all about Slider and Cora and I love every detail I learned as I watched these two find their way This series keeps getting better and better and I already thought it was pretty fantastic!

Since the very first book, I've wanted to know all about Slider and Cora and I love every detail I learned as I watched these two find their way.

There is a really good level of intensity between between them in the beginning that pulled me in. Slider and Cora were great characters with so much depth and I loved watching their walls come down.

Cora has always been a spitfire that was full of life but she held back, so seeing her be honest and open was an emotional yet beautiful thing.

Her sharing of her past made my heart hurt for her and hope for her all at the same time. He's all gruff quietness so locked inside himself and watching those layers chip away as he truly starts to heal from his past was incredible.

Sexy single dad with problems, oh yeah. But he was also sweet, protective, caring, and so loving. I think seeing that humor and playfulness is hands down one of my favorite things.

It was wonderful watching Slider come to life. How they fought it but the pull was to strong. They had that crackling chemistry that I love.

I love Cora's relationship with Haven and the other women in the club and how she found her place with the Ravens. I absolutely adore her relationship with Sliders boys, they were kids that melted my heart.

I love how the boys are an integral part of the story as well. I loved getting the updates in the other Ravens and getting to see their family dynamic, it's such a wonderful brotherhood.

I was invested the entire time! The writing was excellent, I loved the details and build. The ending was perfect.

I would be all over that. Ride Wild is full of love, heart, and healing. Hands down my favorite in the series! The transformation that Cora and Slider went through was extraordinary.

Slider is my new favorite! Such an wonderful story filled with so much hope. I couldn't get enough.

Complimentary copy received for honest review. Sweet and sentimental, yet racy and raunchy, with a bit of suspense thrown in to keep it interesting Ride Wild was a very good addition to this series.

All Cora Campbell wants is a home, a family, a good job, and a dog and to be loved. Her life has been the stuff nightmares are made of; a mother who dumped her, a father who abused her, and a friend who needed her and they barely escaped with their lives.

These were two people who were broken and were afraid to need anyone or to trust anyone so they made some mistakes along the way especially early on in this book.

I liked these two together, I felt they complimented each other well and through their love of the boys realized they wanted more together.

There was a bit of a suspense plot that to be honest was a bit too obvious for me, but I was thankful that the drama came from outside the relationship rather than internally so that was a win.

There are a lot of changes happening within the Raven Riders that should only make them stronger and better. Great characters, a sweet but sexy love story, and lots of time with the MC made Ride Wild a great addition to this series.

Oct 24, Jessica Alcazar added it Shelves: As the saying goes This book had me from page one. I could not get enough of this story.

Was it the single parent aspect? Was it the children themselves? Was it the club? I've loved this series from the beginning and if you've read it from the start as I have, then Cora is someone you've already met.

Cora was the biggest surprise to me. She's a beautiful person inside and out; a force to be reckoned with, if As the saying goes She's a beautiful person inside and out; a force to be reckoned with, if you will.

But this book is her journey, so you don't just get a passing glance. Cora most definitely does not come from rainbows and gumdrops but she is stronger for it.

She is the woman she is today because of her past. And she is exactly the person Sam and his boys need for their future. I read this story in one sitting because it was that captivating!

There are twists and turns that are expected and unexpected but most of all the beautiful bond these four forged was just something that made my heart very happy.

I could read about them for days on end! Copy provided for blog tour review Oct 26, Malissa rated it it was amazing Shelves: It can sometimes be hard for me to write a review for a Laura Kaye book just because I like to think we're friends after having met a few times at signings you know how it is book nerds, haha and I never want to disappoint a friend.

I have been waiting on Slider's book basically since the fist time I met the Raven Riders in Hard as Steel click here for my review and fell in love with Slider's It can sometimes be hard for me to write a review for a Laura Kaye book just because I like to think we're friends after having met a few times at signings you know how it is book nerds, haha and I never want to disappoint a friend.

I have been waiting on Slider's book basically since the fist time I met the Raven Riders in Hard as Steel click here for my review and fell in love with Slider's sad countenance and his beautiful boys.

It is hard not to have them tug at your heart every time they cross the pages of Slider's 'Brothers' stories. If they hadn't tugged at your heart before now who are you even, heart of steel!

Ride Wild is the story of Slider and Cora. Slider has spent years separating himself from his brotherhood at Raven Riders. The death of his wife sending him in to a depression, one he doesn't even fully realize he is in he's spent years walking through each day but not truly living.

Then a spunky, beautiful, but broken woman comes into his and his sons world. Cora is life, she is full of spirit and love. She is joy and peace, but underneath it all she is broken and she is scared.

Her past haunts her though she would never let anyone see that, not when she has so many people that she needs to be strong for. Cora and Haven found themselves being rescued by the Raven Riders months back after running away to save Haven and little known to anyone else, Cora from a terrible situation.

In those months Haven has found herself and fallen in love but Cora, Cora is still just hanging around. She's living at the Raven Riders compound and she occasionally baby sits for Slider when he has to work, but Cora has dreams and they are starting to poke at her heart telling her it may be time to move on.

Time to find her own path and future, but during her time with the Raven Riders and the time she's been helping out Slider she's started to fall in love with his little men and the thought of leaving them and Slider behind is an ache in her heart.

Luckily Slider has two perceptive, loving, and 'slick' boys who convince him that what they need in their life is a full time nanny, what they need is Cora.

I loved the pace of Ride Wild, this isn't a fast paced insta-love. This is a love that develops over time and through the interactions of the couple with each other and with Slider's boys.

This is the way you think of love happening to 'real people'. It's thoughtful and sedate while being passionate and consuming.

There is a maturity to Slider and Cora's relationship that I truly appreciated, it makes for a nice change of pace in the romance genre which is often fast paced loves, with all sorts of drama and often times carelessness until the couple suddenly grows up.

That isn't what we get here and I loved this book even more for it. I loved that Cora is and always will be her own heroine.

She doesn't need Slider to make her dreams reality, she will make them happen on her own, but having his support is integral to her happiness. One thing I loved about Slider is his ability to understand that she doesn't need him, that she wants him, just as he is I love that he can give her what she needs and simply be there to support her.

This line right here made my heart melt into a puddle of goo because isn't this the kind of relationship every person wants?

Seriously if all that doesn't get you right in the heart what else would Oh my gosh, this is something very close to my heart as I have a rescued fighting dog who is one of my loves but will never be the dog she could have been because of where she came from.

It was so hard to imagine myself in Cora's shoes as she took on a volunteer role at an animal rescue. My heart broke with hers and the tears fell with out abandon the first day she assists with one of the abandoned fighting dogs.

It's so hard to believe that there are people in this world who abuse animals in this way, but I have a big girl at home that is proof of it and I know exactly how Cora felt that day and the many days after as she finds herself embroiled in the nastiness of the dog fighting world.

I adored that Laura gives her readers an opportunity to see, even if it is just on the surface, what dog fighting is like.

What it does to the dogs that survive it and to the people that help bring them back from such a horrible life. There is plenty of romance, suspense, and swoon worthiness in Ride Wild, you will not be disappointed.

I loved the way that Laura wraps it all up and giving us a glimpse into the future. I loved that we get a bit of a look at the Raven Riders being a bit more ruthless than what we are used to seeing.

I've always loved Ozzie and looked forward to his story, but this one surpassed even my high expectations. It was so, so good! Ozzie has not been the same ever since he almost lost his life and his leg a year or maybe I can't remember ago.

Every day he lives with the lingering pain and knowledge that he's just not going to get back the mobility or ability to operate that he had before.

That means he will eventually be asked to leave BKI. An operator who can't go out into the field is a useless operator. He's in mourning, and everyone around him knows it.

In the last year, Sam and Ozzie have developed somewhat of a friendship. She's a reporter who knows there's a story inside BKI beyond the custom motorcycle shop story that they feed everyone else.

She's determined, but she also really likes and is drawn to Ozzie. So, when she gets information that condemns the motorcycle club of being criminals, she's devastated The setup of this story was fabulous.

Just because of how devastated both Ozzie and Sam are by what they see as betrayal And then when it becomes apparent that it's not Ozzie Sam has to fear, that's when the story really ramps up.

I loved this one so much. Sam and Ozzie together were fabulous. Most of the rest of the BKI crew were gone As a result, there were some of the best bromance scenes I've seen in this series so far between Christian and Ozzie.

So many scenes where I was laughing out loud and giggling. It was just a really good book. The emotions were seriously deep, especially for Ozzie.

He's always been the laidback, charming guy, so to see him NOT that way was so painful. That made him finding his HEA even that much sweeter.

Who knew all the pain that charming smile hid? I loved the book and have fallen in love with this series all over again. Bring on the next book Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

Adam Lashinsky is a writer and assistant managing editor of Fortune magazine, and a New York Times best-selling author.

His skill is evident in this well-researched, well-paced and insightful book. The reason I rate this book so highly is because it provides valuable insights and clarity for both entrepreneurs, and investors in start-ups.

This is the story of one of the most successful companies in the world: The book debunks many myths and misunderstandings about start-ups. I have witnessed investors analysing a start-up using the same tools as they would use for a listed company.

The founders of Uber surely had a clear strategy when they started out, which they followed to great success.

Their investors surely applied tried and proven analytical tools to assess their investment. Both presumptions are profoundly wrong.

The Uber myth was that the early investors and founders, Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp, were in Paris trying to get a taxi, with no success.

There it became clear to them that a taxi-hailing app on their phones would be a welcome and winning relief for this frustration, that many must be experiencing.

And Uber was born. It was chosen by Camp, who registered the site Ubertaxi. This was appropriate because his initial idea was to own a fleet of limousines and employ drivers who could be hailed by an app.

Using a German name, Camp thought, would conjure images of elite German quality, and class. Far from being a flash of clarity, the initial founders and those who joined them, wobbled their way forward to success, and are still doing so.

Did they have a strategic plan solid enough to be followed? Far from their limousines is their most successful product, UberX, a no-frills compact car, driven by independent drivers.

And Uber is constantly trying, succeeding and sometimes failing. Uber has retreated after a bad bruising by their Chinese equivalents, Didi and Kuaidi.

Didi also received a billion-dollar investment from Apple. Eventually Uber sold its Chinese operations to Didi in return for a Uber has been profoundly disruptive to the centuries-old taxi industry - horse-drawn to fossil-fuelled.

The taxi industry has always been based on two pillars: The scarcity of vehicles makes getting a ride something that is rarely available when you need it, and requires some forward planning.

This is because the taxis are owned by the taxi companies and each one is an expensive asset. Additionally, employing taxi drivers is expensive and the legislation governing transporting passengers is complex.

The Uber disruption comes from destroying the pillars of the old taxi industry. Uber owns no vehicles. Their app enables eligible people to use their own vehicles, offer rides at discounted prices, and skirt or violate?

With so many cars about, the Uber app enables the driver closest to your location to respond to your request for a ride.

When there is higher demand from passengers, prices rise, encouraging more drivers to get into their cars and cash in on the higher priced fares.

Not only is hailing a ride with an Uber quicker than conventional taxis, but their fares are cheaper. This has raised the ire of conventional taxis, which in South Africa has led to deadly assaults on Uber drivers.

Anyone with a car in good condition and a clean police record can become an Uber driver in days of making the decision. Thanks to the various GPS systems, knowledge of the roadways is no longer a requirement.

Drivers are rated by passengers so they are encouraged to drive well, and be courteous and friendly. So are passengers, so that drivers can avoid the abusive ones.

Uber drivers can work as much or as little as they wish, and those who are experienced and determined, can usually earn adequately.

In some countries, many drivers are part-timers who are supplementing their incomes using an asset they already possess.

How long can Uber last against the tide of the conventional taxi industry? Most probably longer than the conventional taxi industry can withstand their onslaught.

Uber is a clever idea whose time has come, as seen from other industries where people aggregate to exploit their assets such as Airbnb, the private-accommodation platform.

The technology to enable driverless vehicles is already in use - partially in some industries and fully in others.

We have driverless trucks licenced to travel on highways in certain American states, and cars with ever greater self-driving capacity. With Uber earning its income from the use of their app by drivers, this business model will have to change when driverless cars become more commonplace.

Uber is acutely aware of this and is investing heavily in driverless technology. A new business model will have to be developed to respond.

Online banking is a pure IT play we have become used to. One person found this helpful. Wild Ride is a poorly written summary of all the Uber news articles published over the last several months with a more sympathetic view towards Travis Kalanick and more detail about a few of the other key characters that helped scale Uber.

You know the cliffhanger before you start the book.. So gripping it reads like a novel. This book is great for anyone who is even remotely aware of Uber: Uber has transformed the transportation sector in just a few short years, all while becoming one of the most valuable and controversial private companies in the world.

The book itself is incredibly well written, and so engrossing it reads like a novel. The author was given exclusive access to Kalanick, but maintains very balanced reporting throughout.

Is Travis an a--hole? Is Uber going to take over the world or be doomed by autonomous vehicles and a terrible culture?

These are the issues that this book explores in depth, while also providing an intriguing narrative of the company's meteoric rise.

It is a crucial look at a critical period in the history of the gig-economy. Uber has revolutionized the way people get around and transformed the global transportation industry.

To put it bluntly, Uber has changed the world for the better. Please try again later. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase.

I've always loved Ozzie and looked forward to his story, but this one surpassed even my high expectations.

It was so, so good! Ozzie has not been the same ever since he almost lost his life and his leg a year or maybe I can't remember ago.

Every day he lives with the lingering pain and knowledge that he's just not going to get back the mobility or ability to operate that he had before.

That means he will eventually be asked to leave BKI. An operator who can't go out into the field is a useless operator.

He's in mourning, and everyone around him knows it. In the last year, Sam and Ozzie have developed somewhat of a friendship.

She's a reporter who knows there's a story inside BKI beyond the custom motorcycle shop story that they feed everyone else.

She's determined, but she also really likes and is drawn to Ozzie. So, when she gets information that condemns the motorcycle club of being criminals, she's devastated The setup of this story was fabulous.

Just because of how devastated both Ozzie and Sam are by what they see as betrayal And then when it becomes apparent that it's not Ozzie Sam has to fear, that's when the story really ramps up.

I loved this one so much. Sam and Ozzie together were fabulous. Most of the rest of the BKI crew were gone As a result, there were some of the best bromance scenes I've seen in this series so far between Christian and Ozzie.

So many scenes where I was laughing out loud and giggling. It was just a really good book. The emotions were seriously deep, especially for Ozzie.

He's always been the laidback, charming guy, so to see him NOT that way was so painful. That made him finding his HEA even that much sweeter.

Who knew all the pain that charming smile hid? I loved the book and have fallen in love with this series all over again. Bring on the next book Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

Will he be allowed to stay on even though he can't actively go on missions due to his injury? And his other problem..

Samantha Tate is a bulldog when it comes to finding stories. She's been a thorn in BKI's backside from the start, trying to discover a way to expose whatever the group is hiding.

She smells a Pulitzer Prize story, she just needs to get someone to actually answer her questions.

She has a good friendship with Ozzie and wishes they were a little more than friends, but he's a womanizer and horrid flirt.

In previous stories, Sam has been the annoying reporter, constantly peppering the team with nosy questions.

In Wild Ride, we get to see the real Samantha-her vulnerability with relationships, her sassiness, that fiery temper, and her quick intelligence that draws Ozzie's attention to her and makes her more than a job for him.

Ozzie aka Ethan Sykes has been my favorite character since the start of the series because he's a geek!

His laid back attitude hides keen intelligence and his hacker extraordinaire abilities. He also loves to spout pop culture references, digs big hair '80's bands, and all things Star Trek.

His infectious personality is hard to overlook-he's the go-to guy for laughs and witty quips. Getting to the core of him was fascinating because I never saw the secrets he had coming!

Ozzie and Samantha getting together was one of the best match-ups in the series since Ghost and Allie because yes, they were my favorite couple until now!

I loved their friendship and their chemistry. Six years in the making, I was happy they finally had a chance to explore their relationship.

Minimal angst because of lack of communication between the two gave the usual relationship hiccups, but overall, Ozzie was as honest as he could possibly be considering the secrets he was keeping from her.

Book nine in the Black Knights Inc. Samantha having to hide from the local MC gang after they kill her witness, Ozzie providing bodyguard duty, steamy chemistry, and the double speak the team dishes to hide their true purpose from Samantha had me captivated until the end!

If you haven't read the series, I feel Walker did a fair job explaining Ozzie and Samantha's background comfortably enough to read Wild Ride as a stand alone, however, the teasers about everyone else should be enough to tempt you to check out the rest of the series!

We join the BKI group in Chicago with the majority of the operatives off on missions leaving only Ozzie and Christian behind as both are on the injured reserve list.

We know that Ozzie is recovering from a terrorist attack in Malaysia. Will BKI force him to leave? What would he do if that happened? There is a marvelous scene between Becky and Ozzie where this fear of his gets discussed.

I was in tears by the time it was over. Also prominent in this book is Samantha Tate, the reporter, who has dogged the Black Knights for years trying to get the real scoop on them for a story.

She winds up getting kidnapped--twice! We learn a great deal about Ozzie's life in this book--his mother and father, his step-mothers, his approach to women and why he asks every woman he meets to marry him.

There are some very poignant times in this book. I was sniffling several times and wanting to scream "Right on!

I've loved every single one of the Black Knights but I have a few favorites--Carlos, Rock Babineaux, and my top favorite: I know one more is coming Dagan's story but I'm angling for at least two more after that!
