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!

 

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.
