Cooper Cruz knows what it means to be surrounded and bound by family. Loyalty, brotherhood, and protection are all learned, earned, and respected by him and the Ravage Motorcycle Club family he grew up in. At the same, he’s a man, having fun and living the life he has always envisioned, until a trip to Florida changes everything.
Bristyl Daniels knows what it means to be smothered and bound by family. Bonds run deep with her father and all the members of the Sinister Sons Motorcycle Club she has grown up in. But now she’s all woman and wishes they would see she isn’t a little girl anymore. Then one phone call gives her a chance meeting with a hunk of a man she can’t get off her mind.
When her favorite band comes to play at a motorcycle rally in her hometown, Bristyl decides it’s worth the risk to sneak off for a little fun. When a situation gets heated, though, Cooper and the Ravage MC step in, setting off a chain of events, both good and bad in both their lives.
As the dust settles, Bristyl will have to come to some very hard decisions. Meanwhile, Cooper knows exactly what he wants. To hell with the consequences.

Holy hells bells.
I’m not sure if I should be pissed that my brothers and father left me to deal with this mess or thank them for the gorgeous eye candy. Not that I would, because they’d have a fit either way, but damn. Maybe it’s my mom smiling down on me, giving me a ray of sunshine through this mess.
All three of the guys are hot in their own way. By the cuts on their backs, they belong to the Ravage Motorcycle Club. Here for the rally, of course, and will be gone in a flash. That’s how it is. What the hell, I’ll enjoy the view while I can.
I sop up the water and wring out the mop head, then repeat … again and again.
Ryker, who boldly introduced himself, is a player. Yep, seen hundreds of them in my day growing up in the club. Tattoos, sexy vibe … I bet he doesn’t even have to ask women, just crooks his finger.
The other man, who I’m not sure his name, looks a little lighter in a way, but I’m not sure how to describe it.
Cooper, though. My heavens. Talk about charismatic, and I got that just from the few words he spoke to me. Hell, I get it just from being in the same room with him. It’s like he oozes it out of his pores, releasing it out in the world for women to fall at his feet and beg. Then there’s the hair. I can’t call it light, and it’s definitely not dark. It’s a unique combination of the two; light browns intertwined with a few darker browns, giving his hair a shade I haven’t seen before. Like a caramel color with an edge, and long. So much so that he has a hair tie wrapped around his wrist. No doubt he puts it up regularly. I’d put money on it only amping up his sexiness.
When our eyes connected for that brief moment, the blue popped out in his. I also noticed some navy around the edges. That combination of hair and eyes … Be still my deprived heart.
The way his pants ride low on his hips makes me want to give up all kinds of things to get him to raise his arms above his head so his black T-shirt rises up and I can see what’s underneath.
He has tattoos running all up his left arm, disappearing under his shirt. I can see some black poking through the top at his neck, too. It piques my curiosity, wanting to find out what he’s hiding.
I shake my head and squeeze out the mop. It’s been way too long since … Never mind.


Bound by Family was my first book by Ryan Michele and it pulled me right in without confusion. Though there was no difficulty following the storyline of this book, I was definitely curious to learn more about the other characters and the MCs so I will be finding time to go back to previous books.  

This story brought together two people, both with ties to their family through an MC - though those ties were different because of who they were.  It was interesting to see how the two MCs differed yet held somethings to the same regard.  

Bristyl knows a lot about being a female in an MC - she was raised to know how to handle it, but lately things have been changing and Bristyl has to decide what to do about her future and her place with her family - she loves them, but she doesn't agree with them or feel as if she's got their love in return.  When a chance meeting introduces her to Cooper, Bristyl has even more decisions to make, but one thing she knows - there's something between them. 

Cooper was told that he'd know the woman for him when he met her - but he didn't believe it until she appeared in his life.  He doesn't know much of anything about her - but the pull to her is strong and he can't deny there's some connection between them.  

But as these two get to know each other and spend time together they don't realize what's brewing in the background and the obstacles they'll have to face to be together.  Bristyl's keeping something big from Cooper and though she's not doing it to cause problems she doesn't realize how things will explode when her secret comes out. 

Bound By Family was a story full of emotions, danger, and two MC clubs finding a way to work together for the good of one person in the middle of them.  There were secrets and lies, lurking danger, love blossoming, and a bit of so much more within the pages.  Bristyl and Cooper go through a lot together as their bond grows stronger and they try to find a way to work out a future between them.  

** Bound by Family (Ravage MC Bound Series #1) is a standalone full-length novel. You do not have to read the Ravage MC series to follow this book, but if you’d like to see where it all started, you really should. **
