Ravage Me Blog Tour: Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Ravage Me blog tour today. There is a review of the book, an excerpt and a giveaway for you all.

Title: Ravage Me (Ravage MC #1)
Author: Ryan Michele
Release: February 6, 2014

After spending the last two years stuck behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit, Harlow ‘Princess’ Gavelson’s time inside has finally come to an end, and she’s ready for revenge. Unfortunately, being the daughter to the Vice President of the Ravage Motorcycle Club cuts into her plans, as orders must be followed. Trying to settle back into this life is proving difficult when the tables are turned and the woman who framed her is out for blood. Lucky for Princess, growing up in a MC has taught her how to hold her own.

After spending years in hell overseas, Donavon ‘Cruz’ came home to lose the very thing he went into hell for, sending him to the darkest moments of his life. Joining Ravage two years ago was his safe haven, and he protects his family at all costs. 

When a dark-haired bombshell struts into the club’s shop, he’s caught off guard but immediately knows she’s the one he’d do anything for. Tough as nails, and taking no crap from anyone, he’s captivated by a woman who could handle this life. Trying to meet the needs of the MC business and follow his heart proves to be difficult when the two collide, and lives are at stake. 

Can these two find a way to be together, or will the needs of Ravage cost them everything, including their lives?

My Review
Princess has spent two years in jail and now that she is free she wants revenge on the person who set her up. She can't make a move to get her revenge as she is the daughter of the Ravage Motorcycle Club's vice president. She knows how things go and she knows she can't interfere with club business. It is not in her to stand by as she has grown up knowing how to fight back. While she has to stand down while the woman who framed her is still out for her blood she does the one thing she said she would never do. She falls for one of the members of the Ravage MC. Cruz joined after Princess was locked up so he isn't prepared for the firecracker who walks into the club not afraid and not backing down. She is the perfect woman for him even if she doesn't know yet. She will be his. While he tries to get his life sorted out and help with the club he also tries to get Princess to see where she belongs. To him. Rival clubs and a woman out for blood make their time together dangerous and they have to try and stay alive.

Harlow or Princess as she is known is just so simply amazing! I fell in love with this girl myself reading this book. She is tough, very loyal to her family and loves ones, won't back down from anyone and yet you also get to see the softer side of her. This isn't a girl to sit back and let men take charge she wants to be in on it as well. She doesn't want to be known as someone's woman but her own person. She has a few fears and tries to keep them hid very deep. Cruz wow I just can't wait till everyone meets Cruz. He is tough, sexy, caring and doesn't like taking no for an answer. He will definitely make you want him in all his roughness.

I have to say I have already read some great books this year and this one is one of my favorites so far and will make it on my favorites of the year list. It is fast paced with amazing characters and you feel so many emotions while reading it. The author does an amazing job writing it and you actually feel you are along for the ride with Princess and Cruz in more than one way. There is tons of action as they try to keep Princess safe and keep club business going. I felt I was right their as at times guns were firing and fights going on. I have to say one of my favorite things was seeing how Princess opens up and becomes things she never thought she would be. She fights with her every breathe to protect those she loves and isn't afraid of danger. There is sexy scenes as well that are the perfect blend in the story. They aren't out of place or just thrown in like I have read some books have. Princess gets revenge a few times I have to say in perfect ways. i would do the same thing if I was her. This has some hard situations if you don't like that be warned but I for one loved this book and can not wait to read the next one. I have to know what next.

5 out of 5 Stars

“Sugar, you just stirred up a shit storm.” The southern drawl to his voice mixed with the smell of leather, cigarettes, and radiating testosterone would have made my pussy clench, but he ruined that by pressing a damn gun to my head. 

“Low, don’t.” I ignored Casey just as I always did. Quickly, I turned my body. As my arm reached back to knock the gun out of his hand, I instantly froze. The three patch rag falling on his chest was a red light flashing in my eyes. Immediately, I stopped, putting my hands in front of me. I would never touch a brother, outside of the ring that is.

The man standing in front of me caught my breath and short-circuited my senses. His broad shoulders were covered with a skin-tight, black t-shirt and leather rag adorned with several patches that fit him like a glove. His bulging arms were covered in tattoos from the wrist up. They were flexed, one pointed the gun with precision, and the other was fisted at his side. His light caramel hair was cut short on the sides, but longer on the top, begging for a woman’s fingers to run through it. His beard was cut very short to his skin making my mouth water, wondering what it would feel like between my thighs. His sapphire eyes narrowed at me as I stared effortlessly in them, becoming entranced unable to speak.

“What the fuck is going on here?” Breaking from this man’s stare, I focused on the familiar voice I’ve missed for too long. Pops eyes swept the room quickly, and when his eyes landed on mine, the anger in them instantly faded. “What the hell’s going on?” He eyed the man with the gun pointed directly at my head and he clenched his hands into fists.

“Hey, Pops,” I said, turning my eyes back to the beautiful specimen in front of me, wanting him to know that I wasn’t afraid. If I needed a bullet in my head, so be it. I wouldn’t shy away.

“You know this bitch?” the hot asshole in front of me clipped, and my lip curled slowly. If he wasn’t wearing that rag, I’d show him how much of a bitch I could be. 

“Put the damn gun down, Cruz,” Pops said jokingly. The anger dripping off this man’s face in front of me told me he didn’t see anything funny about this. He began to take a step closer. “Cruz. Stop!” Pops barked loudly as the other guys started walking up behind him. Cruz instantly stopped, but kept the gun on me. “Cruz, this is my daughter, Princess.”

“Shit. Are you fucking kidding me?” Cruz’s anger was actually pretty funny, and I had to stifle the small laugh that wanted to escape. I had too much respect to let it fly. But the shocked look on his face was pretty priceless coming from a tattooed hot-ass. I probably should have told him that sooner, but what can I say … I was born a bitch. 

“No, I’m not fucking kidding you. Get the fuck away from her, and put the goddamn gun down.” Moving my head to Pops, I could see he was fuming. Whenever Pops was mad, his forehead turned bright red, and the lines throughout it became more prominent along with the vein that ticked with this heartbeat. It’s a look I always hated growing up, and it used to scare the ever-loving shit out of me. 

My eyes flicked back while Cruz took one more look at me. “If you’re still pissed later, we can meet in the ring.” I smiled my damnedest. I could see the smoke threatening to come out of his ears. Confusion laced his eyes, but I wasn’t about to explain right now. I held out my hand to Cruz, “Nice to meet ya. I’m Harlow.” He stared me down as if he was hoping he could make me combust into a million pieces. Sorry Buddy, your super powers won’t work. I’ve been here too long to let that get me.

He tentatively lowered the gun, putting it behind his back, bringing his hand to mine. My hand slipped into his warm, rough, strong grip, a shock raced through my body, beginning at my connected hand and racing all the way through to my feet setting my body on fire. “Cruz.”
