    Another great MC book by Ryan Michele. Her books are always low on relationship drama, have alpha heroes who go after what they want and strong likeable heroines.

    I love how Ryan wrote this as a follow on to the next generation of Ravage Brothers, but also keeping our favourite original Ravage men in the mix. Seeing how Cooper turned out & now a man & fully fledged Ravage Brother was intertwined well with the original crew Cooper & Bristyl's story being the first of the new generation and it didn't disappoint. I love that he is as alpha as his Dad (Cruz) and that Bristyl was a feisty young woman who could take him on.

    4.5 SMOOCHES! This was my first time reading one of Ryan Michele’s MC romances, and I’m very impressed. My only other experience with this author’s work was her novella, Branded, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Considering my love of MC romances, I have no idea where the heck I have been or how on earth her Ravage MC series slipped past me, but man, I’ve seriously been missing out. If they’re anything at all like Bound by Family, I can’t wait to dive into them! For anyone else like me who hasn’t read 4.5 SMOOCHES! This was my first time reading one of Ryan Michele’s MC romances, and I’m very impressed. My only other experience with this author’s work was her novella, Branded, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Considering my love of MC romances, I have no idea where the heck I have been or how on earth her Ravage MC series slipped past me, but man, I’ve seriously been missing out. If they’re anything at all like Bound by Family, I can’t wait to dive into them! For anyone else like me who hasn’t read Ryan Michele’s Ravage MC series, rest assured the author’s claim in the synopsis is true. Bound by Family is a completely standalone novel in a new, spin-off series of the Ravage MC franchise. You do not have to read that series to read this book. I followed right along with this story, without ever missing a beat, and I never once felt as if I was lost or missing something. I’d also like to mention that the author’s next statement in the synopsis—”if you’d like to see where it all started, you really should”—is also true, because I do want to see where this all started, and I will be reading that series. Cooper Cruz was born and bred a biker. Having been raised in the club, it’s the only life he knows. With no plans to settle down with an old lady, he was enjoying the single life of a handsome and sexy biker in a notorious and powerful MC. Bristyl Daniels was also well acquainted with the MC life, having been born to it herself. Her father and brothers are members of another MC, and she was raised in that club. A chance meeting leaves a lasting impression on both of them, but it’s Cooper who rides in to rescue Bristyl at a rally. Little did they know that that was just the beginning of the danger they would face together. Cooper was every bit the rough and alpha biker, but when it came to Bristyl, he had a soft, sweet side. He fell hard and fast for Bristyl, and in her, he found something he didn’t know he needed. Bristyl was independent, whip-smart and fiercely loyal. She was also gorgeous and sexy and had an air of almost innocence to her that was uncommon in Cooper’s world. They had an immediate connection, and the chemistry sizzling between them was impossible to ignore. They took things slow at first, really taking the time to actually get to know each other, but when they did make it to the bedroom, they were explosive together. Practically from the start, this couple was in sync everywhere and that was what was so special about them. As it turned out, it was also a smart move to build that trust first, because when Bristyl’s world crumbles and danger finds them, they needed that to get through it. I really enjoyed this book. It was exciting, interesting and suspenseful, and it was that portion of the plot that really kept me on the edge of my seat. This couple’s love story made my heart race as they fought for their happily ever after. Bound by Family was everything I want in my MC romances: a deep and genuine love story between a strong, passionate alpha male who adores his sassy woman amidst a dangerous, gritty background story and punctuated with some smoking hot sexiness. Ryan Michele’s Bound by Family gets 4.5 smooches from me! ~ Danielle Palumbo

Cooper is an alpha male who feel hard and fast for Bristyl. They took their time getting to know each other to build trust which these two needed when danger came their way. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling. I am looking forward to reading more from this author.

    Cooper Cruz was born and raised as a part of Ravage MC, he knew one day he would patch in and be a member. Cooper doesn't attach himself to anyone but when out of town at a rally he meets Bristyl Daniels. Full of sass and beautiful Bristyl is everything that Cooper wants but believes he can't have. However, he has no clue that Bristyl is the daughter of the leader of Sinister Sons MC. Can two MC's come together or will it tear them apart. The first in the Ravage MC series.

This was entertaining and I liked Bristyl, she was struggling with her identity as the daughter and sisters to Sinister Sons MC family. I liked how this had a bit of a slow build up and Cooper and Bristyl's chemistry is off the charts. I am anxious to see what happens to a few of the characters introduced, looks like it will be a fantastic series.

    Soooo, this is a spin off series from the author's previous MC books. Think of it as a next generation thing. Have I read the original series? Nope. Was I lost? Nope. Would I have enjoyed this more if I had known the parents before? Probably. But don't be put off if you haven't read it. You'll be fine and still love it. Cooper was dreamy. Sweet but manly. I adored watching him and Bristyl fall in love. They took it slow and it was amazing.

    Cooper is all grown up and damn if he isn't HOT as sin!! Cooper is a total bad-ass. He is rough and tough yet has a kind heart and he is gorgeous, exactly what you would expect from Cruz and Princess's son. Cooper grew up in Ravage, it is in his blood, it is his life, it is all he knows and he enjoys all the perks that come with being a brother. He is young but smart and built for this life. He has ambitions and goals that do not include getting himself an ol' lady. But a chance encounter at a l Cooper is all grown up and damn if he isn't HOT as sin!! Cooper is a total bad-ass.

Bristyl is a beautiful strong willed women with a sharp tongue yet she has an innocence about her. She grew up the daughter of the V.P. of Sinister Sons, so she is acquainted with club life. Her family bonds run deep or so she thought. After given an ultimatum she is forced into making some very difficult decisions and they lead her right to Cooper and Cooper protects what is his! I am so happy to get to know the next generation of the Ravage MC family. They still continue to prove that family is everything, that blood isn’t the bond that makes a family. Loyalty and love are the bonds of family and nothing and no one are gonna break that bond!! "Love is what binds us all together. We have that, we’re strong. We lose it, we’re weak."

It is a spinoff of the Ravage MC series and you don’t have to read the other books before starting it but I am going to insist you do because you get to see where this next generation came from and get to see some old favorites as well. Cooper isn’t that little boy we met in Ravage Me. He is all grown up and you can definitely tell he his Cruz’s son because he is just like his dad. Cooper is sweet, sexy and all about his Ravage family. When he meets Bristyl there is a connection that he can’t deny but thinks she is too good for a biker life, little does he know. I loved how he was with her, the way he made time for her and the way he claimed and protected her. Bristyl is fully aware of the club life, her dad and brothers are all members of a MC but they are different than Ravage is. When she meets Cooper she feels that connection as well. She was strong when she needed to be and showed her soft side when it was the right time. I do love a certain scene when she shows her biker daughter side when she takes care of a certain person. The circumstances surrounding her and the rift between her and her family made me want to take a baseball bat to her brothers and father. Bound By Family was an amazing start to the new series and I can’t wait for the other books to come out. Bound By Family had everything I love in a MC book; the sexy kick ass bikers, sassy and feisty women, sexiness, some action and a story line that hooks you in. This is a must read for MC romance fans.

I almost stopped reading at that stupidity, but I'm glad I continued because otherwise the book in total was pretty good. This is one of those 'next generation' books that shows us the aging brothers from the series and a new group that is coming of age.

Cooper Cruz is the son of Princess and Donovan Cruz, a longtime patched member of the MC. I loved Cooper as a kid. He was smart, inquisitive and endearing. As an adult, he's gorgeous, badass and confident with lots of swagger, but just like the elder generation of Ravages, he had a protectiveness and softness shown only for his forever love. Bristyl Daniels is the beautiful daughter of the Sinister Sons VP. Her three brothers are also patched members and she's been raised around the club. She's smart, sassy and snarky. Cooper and Bristyl crossed paths and although sparks flew, geography and circumstances didn't align for them to test the waters. Their paths crossed again, this time when Bristyl ran into trouble. The two began to explore and develop a friendship aka quasi relationship. Of course with any MC, there's action and drama. As the first in the series, Michele set the stage to include three separate MC's and I expect to see more of each in the future, whether within this series or as another spin off. Although the main challenge for the Ravage MC was resolved, it built the foundation as well as left several holes within the others that would make for a great series. I felt the story was well written and well developed. However, there were a few editing errors that were annoying. Nothing too numerous but enough to draw attention. I loved the story and although it can be read as a standalone, I recommend at least reading Ravage Me, if not the whole series. The introduction to Cooper as a child is one of the reasons I loved Bound by Family. I'm not sure if I would have appreciated him fully without the additional experience. All in all, it was a great start to the new series. I'm left with wanting more in so many directions. Next up for the series is Deke in Bound by Passion. He was a mess in Bound by Family so I can't wait to see how he's redeemed!

This story is a follow up maybe spin off of the Ravage MC, you still get the read about the original guys, but this time it's soooo much better, Seems to be anyways, I would recommend anyone to read the Ravage series first as this story talks about some of the events that has happened in the past not to mention you get more of a inside on the characters. I was kinda upset that I had finished this story and that I wanted more but, with all great stories there is always more to come. I can only hope at least. I do want and crave more. This is a MUST READ story. I loved the pace, the story line, characters and everything about it; even all the bad was really great to read. You would think at first that this story is going to be just like all the other MC stories that you read well it's not, seriously it's not. The romance is hotter. LOL ok not only that but they way the story unfolds in front of your eyes really breaks away and gets the story told but leaves you loving it and wanting more. Ryan has done a amazing job with this story couldn't have been any better at all. Worth the 5 stars and then more. ***I received this ARC for free in exchange for my honest thoughts***

As the daughter of a biker, Bristyl knows all about club life.

When she meets Ravage MC biker Cooper she's shocked by their instant connection but doesn't expect anything more than a fun adventure... I liked Bristyl's fight and spirit. She knows and appreciates her position in club life but isn't willing to be forced into anything - she's one strong and determined lady. Cooper loves the freedom of his life as a biker so isn't prepared by the intensity of his reaction to Bristyl. He's instantly drawn to her and isn't willing to let her go - he's going to fight for his woman. I liked his OTT alpha response and didn't even mind his domineering tendencies towards Bristyl, which is something I usually find annoying. The naughty parts are fairly detailed and dramatic so be prepared to blush - if you like your men more on the demanding side then Cooper will be right up your street. I do love me a biker romance and although it wasn't quite up there with the Reaper's MC series (my fav biker series by far), I enjoyed Bristyl and Cooper's dramatic filled romance and would like to know what happens next...! 4 Stars in my Sky! I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

    I loved Cooper, he's an alpha male that will always provide for what's his, even if his woman doesn't agree, “we, beautiful. We’re gonna get a place close to here, and I’m gonna pay the rent.” Cooper likes to reciprocate gestures his woman does, “beautiful, effin’ love it when you slap my ***.” My hand connects with her *** hard, and she screeches as we enter the room." I loved this book, I'm so excited for what this upcoming series has to offer, I'm in love with the characters.

So as excited as I was to dive into Bound by Family, I was also hesitant based on past experience, but I had nothing to worry about. This one had it all. It was gritty and sexy with a good balance of humor and drama woven into the story and was filled with characters that I want to know more about. Cooper is a true son of the Ravage MC. He lives and dies for them and has from the moment he understood what the club was. He didn’t have the best start to his life, but thanks to his father and mother, it hasn’t had a detrimental effect on the man he has become. It was hard not to fall in love with Cooper from the very beginning. He is all dominant alpha male smexyness, but has a good head on his shoulders and isn’t an a$%hat just to be an a#$hat and his sweet side is just as lethal as his smexy side. Bristyl has grown up on the periphery of the Sinister Sons MC and has always been content, and somewhat relieved, knowing that she will never be privy to the inner workings of the club. But now the combination having to follow the rules of the club and her overbearing family have her feeling suffocated as the need to gain her independence grows. I adored Bristyl. This girl has a good heart and head on her shoulders, is thoughtfully spontaneous and yet can get all kinds of feisty when the situation calls for it. I loved how Cooper and Bristyl’s relationship evolved. There was a physical attraction, but nothing insta to it. They took the time to get to know each other and, for lack of a better term, it all felt organic. Their bantering was fun and flirty and the smexyness was intense. What I really liked was while they had drama to deal with, it wasn’t because either of them was being all angsty. It was from other sources and they dealt with it and through it became closer. They were a perfect fit and I loved where they were at the end of the book. As you probably guessed from my intro, this is my first Ryan Michele read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The prologue hooked me and I had a difficult time putting the book down. The writing is engaging, the pacing is steady and the dual 1st person POV’s were done very well. It is stated that this is a spin off of the Ravage MC series and one does not have to read it first, but it is recommended. All I can say is that I never felt lost because Ms. Michele did a great job at weaving those characters pasts into the present without slowing the book down, but based on the information given I will be finding a way to work those books higher in my TBR pile. All of the main secondary characters were well written and have me wanting to know more about them all right now. Ryker is my favorite, but Green is right up there with him and will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book in the series! ~ Copy provided by TRSOR Promotions ~

    Bound by Family is a spin off of Ravage MC series. And as first book it's pretty good. At the beginning I have a little connecting problem, but the more I read the more hooked I was. Ravage still knows how to give you a wild ride, that you wish would never end. I really like Cooper and Bristyl. They both were great separately and together. Bristyl is cute, loyal and sassy. Cooper is all alpha biker. And you for sure will stake your claim on his sexy perfect ass. I loved to meet original Ravage cha Bound by Family is a spin off of Ravage MC series.

It's was nice to find out how they all are doing after these years. Some was doing great. Some not so much and that made my heart hurt. Hope next book will bring something happier to them. PS While Bound by Family is standalone, I do recommend to begin where the journey started. And that is with Ravage Me, 1st book in the Ravage MC series. And if you already enjoyed that ride, don't waste time and hope on on the new one.

    i have loved cooper from the very first Ravage book so this was a must read. great book and so typical of the earlier series and as next generation biker reads go, this was one of the best. loved both characters. Bristyl is a bit naive but still very young so it fit the persona well. an easy fun read, sweet romance, and the essential bit of violence. (30/3/17) 8/2/18 - a re read of this one before getting into the next three. still love it. Ryan Michele def numbers as one of my fave authors. she is i have loved cooper from the very first Ravage book so this was a must read. great book and so typical of the earlier series and as next generation biker reads go, this was one of the best. loved both characters.

Ryan Michele def numbers as one of my fave authors. she is a great storyteller and brings her characters to life in dangerous and engaging stories. romance and family reign true even amid heartache and despair. even though this series is about the younger generation which sometimes emphasizes the naivety of the female leads, i have still found great enjoyment in these works. i love the quality of the writing while still maintaining the speech patterns & roughness of character and lifestyle encompassed by this genre.

We follow the lives of Cooper Cruz and Bristyl Daniels both have grown up in MC life. Cooper is part of the Ravage MC in Georgia and patched in as soon as he was able too. Bristyl is the daughter of a Sinister Sons MC member based in Florida. Although she works for them she isn't an O'l Lady or club whore and has no intension of ever being. I loved both of these characters Cooper for his loyalty and views on family being everything and that doesn't mean by blood. Bristyl for her sassy attitude having been brought up around round men she could really hold her own and not backing down for what she thought was right. When these two meet by chance there is instant chemistry but what i really like was the slow build to their relationship. It wasn't an instant love she mine type of thing. But there meeting has cause a stir in rival MC's and it soon becomes a fight that neither one of them expected. I really enjoyed this book. It was exciting, interesting and suspenseful, and it was that portion of the plot that really kept me on the edge of my seat. This couple’s love story made my heart race as they fought for their happily ever after. Bound by Family was everything I want in a MC romances: a deep and genuine love story between a strong, passionate alpha male who adores his sassy woman amidst a dangerous, gritty background story and punctuated with some smoking hot sexiness. I'm really looking forward to continuing with this series and because of this read i have a whole box set to add to my collection and i can't wait to start it.

    Josie's Review 4.5 Stars If I want to read a good MC book, the name Ryan Michele comes to mind. MC books always have some grit, violence and totally hot alpha bikers. I don’t know how she does it but every time I read a book by this author I fall deep. She has a unique way of bringing not only the story to life but also the characters. When I saw that she was giving the kids of the Ravage MC their very own books it was like Christmas morning. I fell in love with these kids when we read The Ravage Josie's Review 4.5 Stars If I want to read a good MC book, the name Ryan Michele comes to mind.

I fell in love with these kids when we read The Ravage MC series, I could not wait to start this one. I feel in love with how this author this story. I loved seeing how their lives were before they met. Each grew up surrounded by an MC but each MC is very different. I really enjoyed seeing how different their lives were and how different they both felt about the MC’s they belonged too. Copper was special as a child but as a man he was perfect. He had the hot biker thing perfected. He’s a fighter, tough and will do anything for his brothers. He wasn’t hot headed but more leveled headed. When his eyes land on the gorgeous and sassy Bristyl he begins to focus on other things that are not MC related. Bristyl is a perfect female lead character. Growing up and being raised by men has made her tough, determined and unwilling to not be hard. She knows her place in a club and she takes that role on dutifully. She wanted more in life and wasn’t afraid to go after it. When Cooper walks into her life she begins to see things outside of the club aren’t so bad. I loved how the author handled their unique relationship. This wasn’t a quick and instant love story. She gave us a story that had a good build up. We see these two grow to love each other away from the chaos and prying eyes of their MC’S. We get to see why they fall in love with each other and how they will not sacrifice that love for anyone. I’m not even going to start on the hot scenes in this book, because I felt like a perv. SO HOT! Of course this is an MC book and everything isn’t all rainbows and sunshine. We get some drama, suspense and of course violence and a good old MC fight. Loved it! I loved that we got to see some faces from the past. Loved seeing Bristyl take on mama bear Princess. Cooper and Bristyl’s story was a great start to a new series and if this book is any indication of what’s to come, than I’m all in.

    This is the first book in the Ravage MC: BOUND series by Ryan Michele. I don’t like it when the h is TSTL and a total pushover but I also don’t want one that acts like a dude either. That being said in the original series Princess got on my nerves a lot but the more she was with Cruz the softer I think she got. This is the second generation of Ravage MC and this one was about Donovan Cruz and Princess’ oldest son Cooper Cruz. Pops is still the President of Ravage MC but Cooper notices how tired This is the first book in the Ravage MC: BOUND series by Ryan Michele. I don’t like it when the h is TSTL and a total pushover but I also don’t want one that acts like a dude either. That being said in the original series Princess got on my nerves a lot but the more she was with Cruz the softer I think she got. This is the second generation of Ravage MC and this one was about Donovan Cruz and Princess’ oldest son Cooper Cruz. Pops is still the President of Ravage MC but Cooper notices how tired he seems all the time. Cooper has a younger brother and sister, Lennox and Austyn, they are 14 year old twins. Cooper is loyal to Ravage and does whatever he’s asked and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty. Bristyl is the daughter of Regg who is the Vice President of the Sinister Sons MC. Her older brothers Hunter, Racer, and Stone are also patched members of SSMC. Her mother was the perfect old lady and taught Bristyl everything she knew. She died unexpectedly six years ago from an aneurism and her dad hasn’t been the same since. She lives in Crest, Florida and every year there’s a bike rally, Burnout Beach which is a lot more low key than Sturgis. She does the books for the SSMC and runs the laundromat and storage units they own. Ravage is leaving Georgia and headed to Florida for Burnout Beach to make connections with other clubs. While Cooper is at a local laundromat with some of his brothers one of the washers starts over flowing. He calls the number listed for the attendant and is mesmerized by her voice. When Bristyl shows up at the laundromat Cooper is even more anxious to get to know her. Later on Bristyl and her best friend, Leah go to the rally to watch her favorite band perform. Bristyl is pissed when Leah tells her she’s meeting some guy at the rally that she met online. The guy (Nick) turns out to be a member of the Red Devils MC and he brings along two friends one of which gets grabby with Bristyl. Cooper sees Bristyl and her friend struggling to get away from the guys and him and some of his brothers intervene. Leah meeting some random dickhead online sets off a chain of events that cause problems for her, Bristyl, the SSMC and Ravage MC. I really liked Cooper in this book and Bristyl wasn’t too bad either. One thing I don’t like is Cooper’s age was never actually said and Deke is supposed to be 16 in this book yet in the next one he’s like 21. And I think Ryan Michele really has a thing for the letter Y ; Bristyl, Austyn, Carsyn. Which I found to be annoying as hell especially with autocorrect.

Although they live in different states, the strong connection keeps her from getting Cooper out of her head. But her sneaking out has set off a chain of events that will shake up both their worlds. Oh Ryan Michele, you sexy beast, you raised your bar of brilliance to new levels! Just had to say that for the record. I adore this author, and her brilliant writing style, and I've never picked just one of her stories as my favorite, but I'm bucking my system to say that Bound by Family is now my favorite, as I couldn't devour it quickly enough. Intense suspense with twists and turns, not only kept me on my toes, but had me dropping super loud f-bombs throughout the whole book. Holy hell did I love Cooper and Bristyl, and their chemistry shot sparks out of my kindle, which led to mouth watering, fiery HOT, panty destroying sexy scene goodness that I couldn't get enough, not to mention hilarious placed humor to keep me laughing hard. I was instantly transported into her world, and I didn't want to ever leave. This story kicked off with a bang, which shows to be a FANTASTIC new series that I find myself impatient to get my hands on more of in the very near future! Bottom line, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO EVERYONE!

    WOW! Firstly Cooper is all grown up, secondly he is HOT! on top of that he is a fully fledged member of Ravage MC. Yes he is tough, can fight and kill if needed but he can also be incredibly sensitive and loving. He has lived with the nightmares of seeing his waste of space mother killed in front of his two year old self, but it is part of what makes him cherish his family and show them it everyday. Bristyl is still missing her mum and has no idea how to deal with the Sinners rules on women, she WOW!

He has lived with the nightmares of seeing his waste of space mother killed in front of his two year old self, but it is part of what makes him cherish his family and show them it everyday. Bristyl is still missing her mum and has no idea how to deal with the Sinners rules on women, she feels pushed out and often alone. Now being pressured into doing something she definitely doesn't want, she would prefer to be accepted the same way her brothers are and as an equal. This story is a mix of emotions and even in some ways inspirational. There is some violence which is graphic and sexual content also graphic, but then that is exactly what I expect of an MC story. Ryan's characters are all rough around the edges, tough when its needed but when they love it is all consuming. They will fight to the death to protect what's theirs. I love each and every single one of them from each of the MC groups (or the good guys at least) but Cooper is just a little bit special. I have read all the series, as he has grown up from that little boy to the strong lovable man he is today. I have loved him like an aunt would, enjoying his antics as a child to becoming a protective brother. I feel so proud of him and how he has turned out. Ryan I thank you for making our boy so special and for giving him an Ol'Lady worthy of being at his side. This story has moments that are intense, you end up holding your breath. I love the Ravage family and how they never let each other down, they always have each others backs when needed. There is some turmoil to give you a lump in your throat and an ache in your heart, but mostly I found myself reading with a small smile on my face and a whole lot of love and pride in my heart. To me a great writer gets you involved in all levels of emotions through their stories, they draw you in o deep you can see the events and characters clearly as they happen through the pages almost like a great film does. Ryan Michele does that in spades every single time, she never lets me down.

    4.5 stars The Ravage MC family feels like mine own flesh and blood. Ryan Michele has this way of bringing her characters to life that I absolutely love. I was extremely excited when I heard she was going to write this book because I KNEW that she was going to give Cooper and the rest of the Ravage kids the voice and the story they deserved. Cooper is that perfect guy. He's bad ass, tough, can handle a gun, and himself in a fight. But he's also level headed, kind, and smart as a whip.

Add to that his gorgeous face and super six pack and boom the perfect guy. Cooper has always been a special character and Ryan wrote him better than I was even hoping for. His story isn't always an easy on but, the way he navigates through it was perfection. Bristyl is made to be an Old Lady, she is sassy, determined, and tough but, still knows her place within the club. She has a strength that only living a hard life can provide. That strength and determination come in handy when she meets Princess and has to prove her intentions with Cooper. This is another strong female character who isn't afraid to fight for what she wants or to protect the people she loves. The story line was fantastic. We got to visit with characters we love (#RhysForLife) while still getting new ones. I'm excited to see where this series will go and what the new blood and next generation of the Ravage MC will do!

She's the Sinister Son's 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.

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 cant 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 & 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!
