Bound by Family by Ryan Michele Blog Tour


Cooper Cruz knows what it means to be surrounded and bound by family. Loyalty, brotherhood, and protection are all learned, earned, and respected by him and the Ravage Motorcycle Club family he grew up in. At the same, he’s a man, having fun and living the life he has always envisioned, until a trip to Florida changes everything.

Bristyl Daniels knows what it means to be smothered and bound by family. Bonds run deep with her father and all the members of the Sinister Sons Motorcycle Club she has grown up in. But now she’s all woman and wishes they would see she isn’t a little girl anymore. Then one phone call gives her a chance meeting with a hunk of a man she can’t get off her mind.

When her favorite band comes to play at a motorcycle rally in her hometown, Bristyl decides it’s worth the risk to sneak off for a little fun. When a situation gets heated, though, Cooper and the Ravage MC step in, setting off a chain of events, both good and bad in both their lives.

As the dust settles, Bristyl will have to come to some very hard decisions. Meanwhile, Cooper knows exactly what he wants. To hell with the consequences.

** Bound by Family (Ravage MC Bound Series #1) is a standalone full-length novel. You do not have to read the Ravage MC series to follow this book, but if you’d like to see where it all started, you really should. **

Bristyl

Holy hells bells.

I’m not sure if I should be pissed that my brothers and father left me to deal with this mess or thank them for the gorgeous eye candy. Not that I would, because they’d have a fit either way, but damn. Maybe it’s my mom smiling down on me, giving me a ray of sunshine through this mess.

All three of the guys are hot in their own way. By the cuts on their backs, they belong to the Ravage Motorcycle Club. Here for the rally, of course, and will be gone in a flash. That’s how it is. What the hell, I’ll enjoy the view while I can.

I sop up the water and wring out the mop head, then repeat… again and again.

Ryker, who boldly introduced himself, is a player. Yep, seen hundreds of them in my day growing up in the club. Tattoos, sexy vibe… I bet he doesn’t even have to ask women, just crooks his finger.

The other man, who I’m not sure his name, looks a little lighter in a way, but I’m not sure how to describe it.

Cooper, though. My heavens. Talk about charismatic, and I got that just from the few words he spoke to me. Hell, I get it just from being in the same room with him. It’s like he oozes it out of his pores, releasing it out in the world for women to fall at his feet and beg. Then there’s the hair. I can’t call it light, and it’s definitely not dark. It’s a unique combination of the two; light browns intertwined with a few darker browns, giving his hair a shade I haven’t seen before. Like a caramel color with an edge, and long. So much so that he has a hair tie wrapped around his wrist. No doubt he puts it up regularly. I’d put money on it only amping up his sexiness.

When our eyes connected for that brief moment, the blue popped out in his. I also noticed some navy around the edges. That combination of hair and eyes… Be still my deprived heart.

The way his pants ride low on his hips makes me want to give up all kinds of things to get him to raise his arms above his head so his black T-shirt rises up and I can see what’s underneath.

He has tattoos running all up his left arm, disappearing under his shirt. I can see some black poking through the top at his neck, too. It piques my curiosity, wanting to find out what he’s hiding.

I shake my head and squeeze out the mop. It’s been way too long since… Never mind.

Ryan Michele is a new to me author, but one I really believe I'm going to enjoy! I read Bound by Family based on its blurb. I truly enjoyed the story, the characters, and the writing style! Fast paced and fast moving, it was a quick read.

I really liked the lead lady, Bristyl. She's the Sinister Sons MC's VP's daughter. She grew up in the club and knew her place. Women are never members. She thought being the daughter and sister of several members and having grown up in the club life, where she now works, she thought she was part of the fold. Until things go south when the President starts pulling some funky stuff on Bristyl's dad and forcing Bristyl to either Old Lady up, club momma it, or leave.

After rolling into town for a motorcycle beach rally, Cooper Cruz of the Ravage MC, finds himself entangled in a situation with another club. Looks like some guys are getting quite handsy with some girls that don't seem to want the attention. Cooper sure doesn't want to get involved but can’t let things go badly without stepping in to help. Doesn't hurt that this is the hottie he met at the laundromat who caught his attention earlier. Getting involved never goes well in the MC life and Bristyl is caught in a horrible web of trouble she had no idea she was involved with.

The two characters have good chemistry and Cooper is a great mix of alpha male and sweetheart. I enjoyed their story and romance. While it did follow a pretty basic MC story formula, I found it very entertaining and well written. I will definitely be reading the follow up to this installment!


Shannan☆☆☆☆
This is the first time I have read Ryan Michele, with that said, even though this is a spin off series it was easy to follow along and can be read as a standalone.

Bound by Family was pretty slow moving for me in the beginning and I almost gave up. Once I got through the first few chapters it quickly picked up and once it took off, it really took off. I really liked Bristyl. She's grown up in an MC environment, but always just on the outside. She still has that fierce loyalty about her. She's feisty and a bit sassy. Cooper has grown up in the life. He knows what is expected of him. When Bristyl finds herself in the middle of a situation she can't really get out of, Cooper steps in. He knows he probably shouldn't, but can't help himself. With the odds stacked against them, can they make it work?

Cooper and Bristyl have amazing chemistry. I really enjoyed this read and look forward to more from this author. I definitively will be going back to start from beginning.


Lee’Anne☆☆☆☆
I absolutely loved the Ravage MC series and was so stoked to hear about this spin-off series. Once I started this story I wound up reading the entire thing in one sitting, once it sucked me in I just couldn’t put it down. As per usual with Ryan Michele’s books I loved the writing, the characters, and the storyline! The only reason I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because I found Bristyl’s father and brother turning on her the way they do in this story a bit unbelievable, especially in an MC romance. I just don’t see how three brothers and a father are ever okay with handing their daughter/sister over to their club to become a whore. I found it odd and it took away from that “MC family” way that is usually strong in a motorcycle club read.

Other than that, this was a fantastic read. I love that though Cooper is a total badass, he’s a complete softy when it comes to Bristyl and their relationship. I also love that we get so much background on the other brothers, the author has done a great job setting up the series and making it so that I can’t wait for book #2!


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the start of a new series, which is related to the previous Ravage MC series by this talented author.

If you like MC romances, then this is definitely a good one – it certainly starts off pretty graphically. This sets the scene effectively; introduces us to Cooper and the demands of his position in the MC and ensures that noone is in any doubt about the harsh nature of punishment meted out in these clubs.

Bristyl has also grown up in the MC environment, but as she grows up, her role is somewhat undefined. Meeting Cooper has the possibility of changing everything – but the road is certainly not a smooth one. Classic MC drama, with a very desirable ending.

Definitely looking forward to the next installment of this series.




Ryan Michele found her passion in bringing fictional characters to life. She loves being in an imaginative world where anything is possible, and she has a knack for special twists readers don’t see coming.

She writes MC, Contemporary, Erotic, Paranormal, New Adult, Inspirational, and other romance-based genres. Whether it’s bikers, wolf-shifters, mafia, etc., Ryan spends her time making sure her heroes are strong and her heroines match them at every turn.

When she isn’t writing, Ryan is a mom and wife living in rural Illinois and reading by her pond in the warm sun.

Forever Mine by Erin Nicholas Blog Tour


Maya Goodwin doesn't believe in holding back. Ever. As a cop, she never hesitated to throw herself into harm's way to save someone. Even after an injury on the job forces her to retire, she's not afraid to keep risking it all to get the life she wants. With a new career teaching martial arts to kids already underway, she's looking forward to the future – and taking a chance on the unbelievably hot Dr. Alex Nolan.

Maya – daring and spontaneous – is the exact opposite of what Alex always thought he wanted. But when a nine-year-old daughter he never knew existed shows up on his doorstep, Maya is the one who helps them hold it together. With love on the line, will the guy who's always played it safe be willing to take the biggest risk of all?

Alex laughed. He liked Maya. The thought hit him directly in the gut.

Maya smiled brightly, and he admitted that he was intensely attracted too. Now fast attraction—that he’d experienced before. But it had been a long time since even that had happened.

“I’m Dr. Alex Nolan. I’m on staff at Boston Children’s Hospital. I’m on their website if you want to look me up.”

Maya suddenly frowned. “I can’t believe I didn’t think of that.”

“Of what?”

“Googling pediatricians and finding out who you are after the mall the other day,” Maya said.

Alex raised an eyebrow. “Wouldn’t that be a little creepy?”

“Probably,” she agreed. “Maybe that’s why I didn’t do it.”

He laughed. “Well, to further decrease the creep factor, I do have a kid,” he said. “A daughter. Charlotte. We call her Charli. She’ll be ten next month. She’s very into superheroes, GR, and swords, and I know nothing about any of that. I liked the demonstration at the mall and thought I’d come check out your studio.”

“So you’re wanting to sign her up,” Maya said with a nod. “Okay, not creepy at all.”

“Uh…” Alex knew this was going to sound strange. “Actually I want to take the class myself.”

Maya frowned. “These classes won’t teach you about superheroes exactly,” she said. “They are kind of a combination of stage fighting and martial arts and self-esteem workshops.”

“I know.” He’d been on the website. Which is how he’d found out more about the studio. And where he’d stared at Maya’s photo before going in to look up more about her on the internet. Which was how he found out that her classes had won some local awards, she’d been a brilliant cop—who had not, incidentally, been fired for beating someone up—and that she regularly blogged about superheroes and their fandom and the psychology of that fandom. He’d bookmarked her page immediately.

“And the things you do in class sounds like the perfect bonding activity for Charli and me. I’ll take the class and then go home and teach her.”

Maya looked puzzled. “Why not just bring her to class?”

“She…” He swallowed. Charli would love Maya. Hell, if she saw Maya with those pointy-weapon-things, she’d want to be Maya.

But Alex had only seen Maya twice, and he’d already witnessed her get hit with a Bo staff, punched in the ribs, and cut with some kind of sharp hand weapon. Which reminded him that she’d been bleeding.

He looked down, but the bleeding had already slowed or stopped. Which was what happened when a person with normal blood got cut. But Charli didn’t have normal blood. She didn’t bleed faster, but she would bleed longer—because of the genetic mutation he had passed on to her.

He’d told her mother that Charli should be able to try whatever she wanted. But he’d also told her he’d keep Charli safe. If Charli took classes here, he would have to fill Maya and her staff in on the hemophilia and precautions and treatment…

“She has some special needs,” he said, cringing a little as he said it, knowing that Maya might easily jump to conclusions that were not at all correct. But it didn’t matter what she thought. This was the right thing for Charli.

But Maya didn’t even blink. “Okay,” she said. “I understand. Maybe…” But she trailed off while watching him thoughtfully without completing the sentence.

“Maybe what?” he asked.

“Maybe I could teach you and your daughter a private Super You class.”

He was surprised at her offer, but more—he was tempted. Which meant he had to say no. The timing for meeting a gorgeous, intriguing woman couldn’t have been worse. “I think a class with lots of other people, especially kids, would be better.”

“Why?”

Maya was direct. He liked that. And he could return the favor. “Because you look just as good in workout pants as you do in leather.”

Her eyes widened in surprise just a beat before her smile widened. “And that’s a problem?”

“It is when I’m trying to give all of my extra time and attention to my daughter.”

She studied him for a moment. “Okay,” she finally said with a nod. “And once you see the class, if you change your mind, she’s always welcome.”

Alex relaxed. “Thanks.”

“You’re not going to feel funny taking a class with a bunch of kids?”

“I love kids,” he told her.

“What about the tights and cape?”

“Tights and cape?” Alex repeated.

“The costume,” she said with a nod.

“Thought the participants all helped create their own character,” he said, realizing she was messing with him.

“They do.”

“Well, there’s no way in hell I would create a character that would wear tights.”

Maya’s gaze wandered over him, head to toe, before she said, Too bad.”

Maya is amazing. She's strong, brave, and stubborn. Not only does she not let the fact that she was "benched" from the police department get her down, she started an entirely new venture with friends and now teaches kids how to defend themselves, all while playing! Maya is attracted to Alex instantly – so instantly, that she keeps getting injured because she can't focus. I really liked Maya's spirit and her ability to see past what most can't – she was able to get to the bottom of Alex even when he didn't want her to.

Alex is somewhat annoying for me. He is what I would consider a non-risk taker, despite his condition. He has just met his daughter – a daughter he didn't know existed. That makes his situation stressful, which I understand, but I also really hated how he compartmentalized his life.

When it came right down to it, Alex was unwilling to alter his life for Maya and that broke my heart for her. I even shed a tear for her when things were at their worst.

I won't tell you everything that transpired, but despite their chemistry, Alex was kind of a dummy in this book. However, all ends well and I really wish we could have seen further into the future.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the second book in the series and a real treat. We get to see friends made in the first story, and it is Maya, the feisty ex-cop's turn to experience love and romance.

There is a lot to commend this book – it deals with a number of difficult issues, but also a couple of very simple ones. Alex has been compartmentalising his life and keeping safe, until he sees Maya and immediately recognises the attraction and the danger. He seemingly cannot forget her, nor release himself from the boundaries he has set. Maya refuses to be limited by her injury, and pushes herself to pain to feel alive. Somehow the chemistry between them demands that they take into account the views of the other... and it is fascinating watching on. Add in the superhero obsessed daughter, Charli, and a very enjoyable read is created.

A most entertaining and absorbing read, thank you Ms. Nicholas.


Lee'Anne☆☆☆
I just didn’t love this story. I liked the characters and the writing is great, but the story just didn’t flow well for me.

Maya Goodwin is an ex-cop turned martial arts, fitness, superhero teacher. Her goal in life is to help children build their self-esteem and fit in. Alex Nolan is a pediatrician who specializes in hemophilia research, a blood disease that both he and his daughter (whom he just recently found out about) suffer from. Hemophilia is a blood disorder that causes you to have extreme bleeding if injured. Alex spends the bulk of his time spending time with his 9-year-old daughter, getting to know her. He doesn’t have time for much else, but when Maya comes into his life he can’t help but make time.

I think the thing that kept this from being a great story for me is Maya’s job. It’s very confusing and I just didn’t find it realistic. I did really like both Maya’s and Alex’s characters though and the other characters are pretty great, too – especially Maya’s friends!

Patience by Helena Stone


Patience is a virtue. But what if you wait too long?

While Xander Ekman’s dream of becoming a successful artist has come true, his love life has gone from bad to worse. Sick of the endless string of one-night-stands, he accepts the challenge when his best friend, Erik, bets him that he can’t be celibate for a month. Now all he needs is a reminder to keep his distance in the heat of the moment.

Troy Moriarty doesn’t have time for love. He’s too busy trying to keep his recently opened tattoo parlour afloat. Besides, ever since the man who was supposed to be his business partner abandoned him to run the shop on his own, he has a hard time trusting others.

When Xander turns to Troy for a tattoo that will remind him to be patient, the attraction is instant. But faced with Xander’s month of celibacy, Troy’s trust issues, and a nemesis lurking in the background, their relationship may be doomed before it has a chance to begin.

3 1/2 stars

I wanted to love this book, the blurb was great, the secondary characters were great, but there was just something missing and I can't really put my finger on what. Troy and Xander have both been burned in the past but they both want their forever someone. The chemistry was there between the two characters but I was hoping and needing more. I do wish there would have been a picture of the drawing Xander did of Troy before he saw him naked, that would have been nice to see. I am hoping the next book in the series has a little more oomph and I hope it is about Eric.



Helena Stone can’t remember a life before words and reading. After growing up in a household where no holiday or festivity was complete without at least one new book, it’s hardly surprising she now owns more books than shelf space while her Kindle is about to explode.

The urge to write came as a surprise. The realisation that people might enjoy her words was a shock to say the least. Now that the writing bug has well and truly taken hold, Helena can no longer imagine not sharing the characters in her head and heart with the rest of the world.

Having left the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam for the peace and quiet of the Irish Country side she divides her time between reading, writing, long and often wet walks with the dog, her part-time job in a library, a grown-up daughter and her ever loving and patient husband.

I LOVED HARMLESS!!! The Pier 70 series is one of the few that I pulled rank on to review for our blog. I usually let one of the other ladies on our team claim the review spot when we’re only allowed one, but Nicole Edwards is an exception. One I’m glad I made because I have enjoyed each and every installment in this series, but Harmless might possibly be my favorite of them all. It could be because it’s a bittersweet end to such an enjoyable series, but it’s more likely that it was a heart wrenching story with a fantastic crossover with Edwards’ Austin Arrows series – which, yes, you guessed it, I also pulled rank on to review.

Even though I’ve read the previous books in the series, I was as floored as Cam was when Roan’s secret was revealed. And the way that it occurred, especially after the night Roan had already had, it’s a wonder the man didn’t crack under the pressure of it all. But the secret (and yes, I’m trying very hard not to reveal it because although it’s not really a spoiler, potential readers deserve to experience the same shock) was one that didn’t give Roan time to wallow in grief over his sister’s death. Especially once Seg enters (or re-enters) the picture, with his sights set on making Roan his… assuming he can figure out how to do that without sinking his hockey career. The chemistry between Roan and Seg is hot enough to melt the ice that Seg spends his days on, but it may not be enough, not with all the obstacles that seem to be keeping them apart, especially the wall that Roan has built to keep his heart safe from being hurt again. Fortunately for all involved, Seg didn’t become a professional hockey player because it was easy, he knows how to work hard for what he wants and what he wants is to build a family with Roan.

One of the things that I appreciated about Harmless is that once he dealt with his knee-jerk reaction and refusal to be Seg’s dirty little secret, Roan was able to look at their situation from Seg’s point of view and appreciate Seg’s need to be discreet about his sexuality so as not to ruin his career. It was a level of maturity that’s often missing in sports romances when the athlete is closeted. Roan’s initial emotional response was realistic, especially considering his past, but after he stepped back and reexamined the situation from Seg’s perspective, he understood better and was willing to do what needed to be done. Of course, when Seg mucked that up, Roan’s response afterwards was spot-on and my heart broke for both men. I loved catching up with the couples from the previous installments and how they came together to support Roan in his time of need. I think that my favorite scene was when Seg stood up to Roan’s stepmother, calling her out on her homophobia. The man was absolutely magnificent in how he “forced” her to reveal her prejudices and in his defense of Roan, all without losing his temper. I was cheering him on the whole time and could not wait for the two men to get home so that Roan could reward him properly. While I’m sad to see the end of the Pier 70 series, I’m hopeful that the Harmless crossover with the Austin Arrows series means that we’ll get to see the guys every once and a while. Until then, I’ll have to settle for spending a weekend reading all four books back-to-back to get my fix… such a hardship.

Crazy for You by Rachel Lacey Is Now Available & Reviewed


SHE'S TAKING A WALK ON HIS WILD SIDE

Emma Rush can't remember a time when she didn't have a thing for Ryan Blake. Haven's resident bad boy is just so freakin' hot-with tattoos, a motorcycle, and enough rough-around-the-edges sexiness to melt all her self-control. Now that Emma's over being a "good girl," she needs a little help being naughty... and she knows just where to start.

Before Emma's brother enlisted in the military, he made Ryan promise that he would protect her from everything--including himself. When her brother doesn't come home, Ryan needs to turn his screwed-up life around to honor his pledge. But he knows he's still not the right kind of guy for someone as sweet as Emma. Only he can't stop wanting to be with her. Wanting her. Falling in love with a good girl may be the craziest risk this bad boy can take...

This is the second in this series and continues with the story of another member of the group of men and their Haven based outdoor activity business.

Ryan is a man who has had to work hard to succeed, and whilst outwardly he may be tattooed and ride a Harley, he is still a man of honour and sensitivity. His reputation as a player may have once been justified, but right now he is just working hard to get the new business running. So when his dead best friend's little sister, Emma, flirts with him, he friend-zones her immediately. She is not going to let it rest though and watching them dance around each other is great fun.

This is a good story, which shows just how complicated it can be to navigate through life. No really major dramas to get round, just the things in life which remind us all how a decision can have such different outcomes to those we might have planned.

We get some very strong hints as to whose turn it will be next... but I resisted reading the first chapter at the end of the book, because I would only be frustrated at having to wait!


Lee'Anne☆☆☆☆
This is a sweet romance that really sucks you in from page one!

Emma has had a crush on her brother’s best friend, Ryan, forever. When her brother is killed while in the military, Ryan takes on the role of protector for Emma and they’ve never stepped out of that friend-zone. Then Emma decides she needs a walk on the wild side and Blake is the route she’d like to take. Ryan does everything he can to resist in the beginning, but the more time they spend together the less resistance he has until the sparks explode between the two.

I really love both Emma and Ryan’s characters. They’re well-written and though the plot line isn’t exactly original, it’s done in a way that will have you unwilling to set stop reading. I really love Mark and Jess’s characters and from what I’ve read their story is next… can’t wait!
