Have you ever wanted something so badly it consumes you?

There is a fine line between needs and wants.

Deke Gavelson has wanted his Ravage cut for as long as he can remember. He’s earned it. He was born to be in this club. He’s not afraid to fight for his place, either. 

Then she barreled into his world, and Deke suddenly desires something more than his rag and winning the next round. 

Rylie Hollister has lived through hell and back. Each event makes her the strong, independent woman she is today. Until a bitter underground fighter threatens to turn her plans upside down.

These two are bound by their desires, but oh, how that changes when his intensity meets her passion.

Love it!  It feels so good to be back with the Ravage MC family!

Bound by Desire is the second book in the Ravage MC Bound Series by author Ryan Michele.  This series is a spinoff series of her original Ravage MC series.  I recommend you begin reading this series from the first book in the Bound series, but I think you’ll love it even more if you begin from the beginning of the original Ravage series.

Deke, the son of GT and Angel Gavelson, moved away from his family and the Ravage motorcycle club when he turned 18 years old.  There is a lot of bad feelings between him and his family, but he continues to keep in touch with his sister.  Until one day, he finds out his mother is sick and he is needed at home.   When he arrives, Deke meets Rylie, the new head of security for X, the Ravage owned strip club.  I just love Rylie and I think she is perfect for Deke.

I completely recommend this book and series to all MC lovers!

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.

Ahh, it is so nice to be back with the Ravage MC men and their ladies!  I have read all their stories and must admit that Princess and Cruz’s book is my favorite!  I was excited to read that Bound by Family is Cooper’s story (Princess and Cruz’s son).  Just so you know, Bound by Family was written in a way that you don’t need to read the other series, but I do recommend it as it’s one of my favorites!

Cooper is roughly 22 years old and a full member of the MC, which is based in Georgia.  Bristyl grew up around the Sinister Sons MC in Florida where her father and three brothers are all members.  The Ravage MC has done some business with the Sinister Sons MC, but they are not necessarily on the best terms.

Cooper meets Bristyl while down in Florida to attend the Burnout Beach Rally. He and some of his brothers meet Bristyl in a funny scene at the Sinister Sons owned laundromat.  Bristyl is not afraid to fight, but when she and her friend Leah are being bullied by some of the Red Devil’s MC, Cooper quickly goes to defend her honor.  Of course, that gets Ravage in a mess as Bristyl is not Ravage’s property. This leads to a dispute amongst the three clubs.

I love this story, and it was wonderful to see how my favorite MC is doing.  I am excited for the next books and am looking forward to reading Deke’s story as well as Green’s!

A definite #OneClick for all those MC lovers!
