Genre: Contemporary romance

Back cover blurb: After identifying her employer’s dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn’t make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him—and always has.

Ike Young loved and lost a woman in trouble once before. The last thing he needs is alone time with the sexiest and feistiest woman he’s ever known, one he’s purposely kept at a distance for years. Now, Ike’s not sure he can keep his hands or his heart to himself—or that he even wants to anymore. And that means he has to do whatever it takes to hold on to Jess forever.

My review: There’s a scene in this book which is one of the hottest I have ever read. Laura Kaye can certainly write steam, and we get there after a great buildup of UST. Jess and Ike have worked together for years at Hard Ink and lusted after each other almost from day one, but both have tragic pasts for which they bear the guilt. After all the turmoil at Hard Ink, Jess has to put herself in Ike’s care out of harm’s way, and the smexy times were just inevitable.

I loved both these characters and really enjoyed being introduced to the Raven Riders’ world. There is so much scope for further books, and I can’t wait to read the MC series when it begins in earnest. Highly recommended.
