I fight for what’s mine. 
Growing up with a junkie for a mother, Stiff’s responsibilities came young and fast, taking care of his brother with everything he had. If that meant getting his hands dirty, then so be it. 
Becoming part of Vipers Creed MC gave him the family he and his brother never had, people they could count on. He vowed to protect them, even when that meant turning his back on the woman who gave him life … until Chelsea. 

He knew he wasn’t good enough for her, but he didn’t care. He had to have her. 

After all, Stiff always fought for what was his. No matter the price. 
No one messes with my family. 

Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, family, save for the future. Every day was the same. Her ultimate goal: live an easier life than the one she’d been dealt. That was, until her sister ended up bleeding, bruised, and fighting for her life. 
Everything in Chelsea’s life changed in an instant. And the cost of protecting her family was far higher than she had bargained for. 
Stiff. The Vipers Creed MC. A relentless trail of bullets and carnage. Everything she knew turned on its head. 
Survival of the fittest, they say. Well, Chelsea’s a survivor. And she refuses to go down without a fight. 

When two stubborn people clash in a combustion of passion and family, will conquering each other come at a price neither of them is willing to pay?

Conquering is the second book in the Vipers Creed MC series by Ryan Michele.  I love the first book in this series, Challenged, and was excited to receive an advanced copy of the second book, Conquering, for my honest opinion.  Sometimes, the second book falls flat in a series, but Conquering is as awesome as the first book.

Conquering tells the story of Chelsea, who is a hardworking waitress always worrying and helping her family.  Her father is an immoral man who hasn’t been around in years.  Stiff is a hardworking man who has done everything he could to help raise his brother, Xander, who has recently come home from the war.  Chelsea and Stiff have always had eyes for each other, but Stiff finally steps up when Jenn, Chelsea’s sister becomes hurt.  Their attraction ignites and becomes so hot and sexy.  The plot is great with just the right amount of drama, suspense, and passion.

Conquering is roughly 75 % of the book and then Ryan Michele offers us a treat by including Courageous, which is Xander and Gabby’s story.  I have to be honest that I was not sure how I felt about Xander.  I thought he was a good clean cut type of guy, which is great…but not my particular book boyfriend.  I can honestly say that Xander surprised me and I adore his story just as much as the others.  Great Job Ryan!
