Official Blurb: Have you ever wanted something so badly it consumes you?
There is a fine line between needs and wants.
Deke Gavelson has wanted his Ravage cut for as long as he can remember. He’s earned it. He was born to be in this club. He’s not afraid to fight for his place, either.
Then she barreled into his world, and Deke suddenly desires something more than his rag and winning the next round.
Rylie Hollister has lived through hell and back. Each event makes her the strong, independent woman she is today. Until a bitter underground fighter threatens to turn her plans upside down.
These two are bound by their desires, but oh, how that changes when his intensity meets her passion.
Review: Holy emotional roller coaster ride!! Whew be ready because Deke’s story will literally rip your heart out and put it back together again. I don’t know how Ryan does it, but she continues to make me love each character more than the last and poor Deke needs some good loving!
We are introduced to Deke in book 1 of the Ravage MC Bound series, and I couldn’t wait to get his story, and believe me it’s an emotional one. Deke hasn’t always made the best choices in life. He got mixed up in drugs and went down a path he didn’t intend to go down. But now he has chosen to leave behind the Ravage family. Deke is clean, but he suffers with the demons of his past. Not everything is as it appears and believe me Deke has many secrets and some literally brought tears to my eyes. Enter Rylie…
Rylie is a total bad a**. She doesn’t need any man to take care of her, but the minute she sees Deke she is instantly attracted to him. Rylie has her own demons she is battling, but what’s a little fun along the way right?
Deke’s story is one I was not expecting. I knew he had made some mistakes, but to know how much he sacrificed was heartbreaking. GT (from the original Ravage MC and Deke’s father) has always been one of my favorites and I had my up and down moments with him throughout the book. I adored both Rylie and Deke together. Their chemistry is off the charts and they brought out the best in each other. I also loved seeing all the Ravage family together. I cannot wait for the next book! I need it ASAP!!!
