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?

My Review :

Thank you so much Ardent Prose PR for sending me an ARC of this book!! I’m honored!! ❤

5 Spook has my heart Stars!

 

I absolutely adore MC books and this one is going down as one of my top five favorites of all time! I loved how raw and gritty it was. It had it’s own twist that made it super unique and it had a darkness to it that kept me engaged. Some parts totally shocked me in a great way and kept crossing my fingers that everything would turn out alright in the end. This was my first time reading anything by Ryan Michele and i’m already making a list to purchase more of her books as soon as possible.  Ms.Michele sure knows how to keep you guessing and turning the pages. I truly cannot wait to read the other books when they come out! The next book will be just as amazing i’m sure of it and i can’t wait to read about a certain character i didn’t like but i’m sure i’ll change my mind. 😉

 

One of my favorite quotes comes from Cade “Fifteen years ago, you tunneled your way into my heart.” ❤

Trix/Trixie Lamasters was a feisty character and stood her ground. I like that she had a backbone and went toe to toe with Cade. She owned a strip club called Sirens and she cared a lot about her girls as if they were family to her. It was hard to to read about her struggling feelings towards Spook and not wanting to put her heart on the line again. She was a very strong individual and i wanted to reach into the book to give her a high-five because of her great comebacks. Trix was a kick-butt heroine and it was nice to see her overcome the things she had to endure. I wish i could play poker like her! She’s just one of those characters that leave you feeling empowered after reading the story.

Spook/Cade Baker was the total alpha male package and his sweet talk made him even more swoon worthy if that’s even possible. He was trouble with a capital T. Being the president of Vipers Creed MC had changed him over the years but certain things don’t change. Just when i thought i wasn’t going to like him whatsoever do to him being arrogant but he changed my mind. He was tough but had a heart even if it was hidden at times and when it did show be prepared to be a grinning and blushing idiot. Cade was sexy and had such this grit about him that was so endearing it left me wishing i could have my own real life Spook.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a dark MC romance but are looking for something different that will blow your socks right off! Pre-order right now! You won’t regret it! 5 stars all around! 🙂

Spook

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.

Spook,

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.

Trix

“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.
