Review: Seduce Me by Ryan Michele

Publication Date: 6/9/2014
Series: Ravage MC #2
Rating: 4.5 Stars

Official Blurb:

Casey Alexander grew up part of the Ravage Motorcycle family since the day she was abandoned by her mother and thrown into her father’s lap. Always seeing herself as an outsider, she spent her whole life trying to fit in, but never really succeeding. When she loses her beloved father, the utter aloneness engulfs her, leaving her searching for solace in the one man she’s always craved. Confessing her love for him only results in devastation when he pushes her away. Convinced she needs a fresh start, she leaves everything behind in order to mend her broken heart and begin building a future without him. 

Gage Thomas (G.T.) Gavelson fell in love with his Angel when he was just a pint sized kid. Both beautiful and smart, he always felt she deserved so much better than him. Growing up beside her in the club only continued to test his will power, until one night, he gave into temptation. Realizing he couldn’t allow himself to hold her back from the life she deserved, he pushed her away, allowing her to believe she would never be enough for him. Letting her go had been the hardest thing he’d ever done. Even though he’d thought it’d been the right thing to do, not a day goes by that misery doesn’t consume him for it.

When a tragic shootout occurs, everything changes as once again their lives are intermingled. When you find your way back to the one person you are meant to be with, forgiveness should be easy. But sometimes, we hurt each other too much to ever be able to forgive.

Is their love strong enough to heal their pain?

In Ravage Me, we are introduced to Princess and Cruz. Princess was the daughter of the club's VP and was the granddaughter of the founding Prez. She was a strong female biker lead that really surprised me. Well... the surprises have continued as this series has continued to flourish. Michele has done it again. She's managed to create such a new and refreshing MC story that I cannot help but fall deeper in biker love with it. Me brings to fictional life the story of G.T. and Casey. 

Casey is another MC daughter of the Ravages. Yet, unlike Princess, she's not quite as hands on when it comes to handling her business as Princess. After her father's death, she's battled being lonely and how she fits into the club life. Since she was a child, she's always felt a connection with G.T. Yet, he's also held her at arms length. He's always there for her when she's in pain or mourning, but he'll never be able to commit to her like she wants and needs. Her only option is to get away from the one thing that will forever cause her heartache. 

G.T. is by definition a biker bad boy. He's a womanizer in his spare time, but no woman has ever held his interest like Casey. He can't bring himself to share his feelings with her because she has no business being involved with a guy like him. He knows that she may be his love, but he won;'t sacrifice his heart or his club to have the one thing he wants so badly. When she leaves for life on the outside, he realizes that his past decisions regarding Casey may quite possibly be the worst decision of his life. 

Seduce Me has the grittiness of an MC book that everyone who is a fan of this genre will love. Yet, much like Ravage Me, there are heartfelt pieces to these characters that leave you breathlessly ugly crying. This book takes the world building established in Ravage Me and builds yet another complex layer to the story. These characters evolve with each book and I honestly cannot wait for more!
