AP - Synopsis.jpg

Lust, love, and second chances.

Growing up in the fast-paced and rough life of a motorcycle club wasn’t easy. Cleaning up the mess his father had made of Vipers Creed meant sacrifice. Cade ‘Spook’ Baker had given up everything to bring the club life back to what it was supposed to be: a family.

The choices he made were not what he wanted, but they were necessary for the club as a whole.
Second chances rarely came to Spook, so when his Trixie walked boldly into his clubhouse, the decision was made. Trixie would once again be his, this time for good.

Trix Lamasters was raised by a master—a master con. All grown up, she made her life solid by making it about her club, Sirens. But one bad business decision brought her to her knees, forcing her to call on the one person she had sworn she would never trust again.

Pasts have a way of not staying there. Things that were buried deep have a way of finding themselves in the light of a new day. Could something that had once crashed and burned for Spook and Trixie find a way out of the wreckage? With the odds against them, can they find a way to overcome the challenges, or will it all blow up in their faces?

I LOVE this author. I loved the Ravage MC series so I knew that I would love this book and I never even read the blurb first. I went in blind and I can say that I was not disappointed. Cade and Trix will grab your heart and not let go. These two have a long history. They have a connection that years apart has not been able to sever. Cade knows when Trix walks back into his life that the time to come clean and take back what is his, is now. Trix doesn’t want to go to Cade for help, but she knows she has to. She has got her life exactly how she wants it and is content, if not happy. The chemistry between these two could make stars fall from the sky. The author has an amazing ability to write a story that makes you wish you were the main character, to be able to feel that kind of love and devotion. The depth and emotion that go into her stories is phenomenal. I am excited to see where this series might lead and how many more bikers can find their HEA.

I am a total Ryan Michele fan! I love everything she writes and was not disappointed with this book! I love MC Romances, this book was no exception. Such a fabulous start to a new series. I picked this book up and read it in one sitting i just couldn't put it down the twist and turns kept me engaged and entertained right to the end. 

Challenged is Trixie/Trix and Spook's (Cade) story. Trix was raised by a single father, who also happened to be a con-man. Cade grew up in the MC his father being the previous president. They share a past which raises a lot of old feelings and resentment and issues of trust. 

Trix is the perfect match for a present of an MC she is independent, stubborn, strong and doesn't back down from a fight. Spook is a hot, bad-ass, sexy alpha male, who doesn't like to take no for an answer and basically takes what he wants. 

This story had a little bit of everything, suspense, romance and angst and mixed in are quite a few panty melting hot love scenes. 

Although there were a few similarities to the Ravage MC series, in all i felt that it has quite a different feel and thoroughly recommend this book to any lovers of MC Romance.

What's not to love about a story focusing on brotherhood, respect, and men who are bossy, protective, sexy and strong alpha males. The Vipers Creed MC is full of hot alpha males, I can't wait to read more of their stories as they find their other half. 
Another 5 Star read from Ryan Michele

Trix and Spook, you know a book is going to be bad ass when the MC's have such great names.  I enjoyed everything about this book. The storyline was unique, the plot was entertaining, and the characters were so relatable.

Spook was one of the best characters that Ryan Michele has written.  He was this big  biker, club president, and all around badass. But at the same time he had no problem expressing his feelings.  He knew what he wanted and he took it.  He was incredibly loyal, honest, and would give his life for those considered family.

Trix is self assured and independent.  She runs her own business, her employees fear and respect her.  But with all of this her past still haunts her.  Hers is a lonely life until Spook and his brother's force their way into it.

When they come together their past comes back to cause them problem, an old flame is reignited, and they find out that maybe their stronger together than they ever were apart.

AP- Excerpt.jpg

I woke to a very cold bed. My hand reached out, touching nothing. I listened, but I didn’t hear a sound. It surprised me. I usually slept lightly, never knowing when I needed to be on guard. Something about being in bed with her, having her cuddled up to me, had me sleeping like a fucking log.
Rolling out of bed, I grabbed my pants and shirt, throwing them on along with my cut, socks, and boots. I walked down the hall of the little ranch house.
“Trixie?” I called into the nothingness.
I looked through the house, but she was nowhere. The little minx jumped out on me.
A piece of paper on the table had a large scrawl on it.
I had shit to do. Lock the bottom lock when you leave. Please don’t come back.
I chuckled. Woman had no fucking clue who she was dealing with. Oh, I’d be back … tonight or this afternoon. I hadn’t decided yet.
“You get anywhere with Cade?” Jett, my assistant asked as she plopped down in the chair in front of my desk.  She had a beauty that pulled everyone in and curves that made me insanely jealous. Her long, dark hair laid pencil straight, and her eyes were a blue that looked almost gray in different lights.
My stomach fell at her question, reminding me of last night. I couldn’t believe I fucking slept with him. Not just fucked him, but showered with him, fell asleep with him … woke up in his damn arms. Sneaky bastard.
I could still feel him between my legs. Hell, I even had phantom feelings of him inside of me. He’d had a lot of practice. I knew he had because I had heard all about it. And I wasn’t any better than one of those paid hookers.
Fucking moron. My reasons had sucked before. They meant shit now.
I wanted to pass off the night as being just another booty call, a way to fuck each other out of our systems, but both were a flat out lie. Last night was so much more than anything Taylor, or any of my other weak-ass booty calls, and I had ever been.
The rawness in his eyes captivated me. God, his eyes … I could see so much more in them last night. More than I’d ever thought I would see. But I was just fooling myself. I wouldn’t go back fifteen years to fall for the bad boy again, just to get my heart smashed all over again.
Mortification didn’t even cut it when it came to describing how I felt. Weak. Pathetic. I gave in, letting him have that power over me with his smooth talking and fantastic bed skills.  Plus, he had looked sexy as hell in his leather and jeans. To see him on a motorcycle, too, was just a recipe for disaster. And I had just spread my legs, begging for him to give it to me. Dammit.
Although I was dead serious in the note I left him this morning, it felt really odd to leave it for him in my own house. Nevertheless, I couldn’t stay and deal with the morning after shit. One look and I would have let him inside my body again. I would have let him take me over and over until I really couldn’t walk. Now that I knew how much he had grown, let alone changed in the bedroom, it would be more difficult than ever to say no to him.
I had to remember Cade crushed me. My first love left me to pick up the pieces of my torn heart. I couldn’t go back to the me from that time.
“He doesn’t know if Nanette is there.” I decided to leave out the whole him fucking my brains out bit. I wouldn’t open up that can of worms. I told Jett all about Cade one night after way too many shots of tequila. Regardless, the less people who knew about the now, the better.

AP - about the author.jpg

Ryan Michele has a huge obsession with reading, which only came to life after her best friend said she had to read Twilight. After reading that series, her entire world changed in the blink of an eye. Not only was she sucked into new worlds and all of the wonderful words authors put down on paper, she felt the urge to begin to write down the characters that played inside of her head. In doing so, Safe was born. Then Wanting You and the Ravage MC series.

When she's not reading or writing, she spends time taking care of her two children and her husband, enjoying the outdoors and laying in the sun.
