Blog Tour: Ravage Me by Ryan Michelle


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?

4 star review by Jen Skewes

Ravage Me EbookHarlow aka "Princess" grew up in the MC world where woman were club whores wanting to become old ladies.  Sex, violence, cheating, it was all a part of the world that she grew up in.  She just finished serving a 2 year sentence for a crime that she did not commit.  When she comes home she finds that a lot has happened in the last two years that she was gone.  There are new member that have been patched in.  While Harlow is used to this world and lifestyle there was always one rule that she stood by and that was to never sleep with any of the brothers.  She didn't want to be a club whore or anyone's old lady.  That all changed the day she came home and met Donovan Cruz.  

Cruz has been a member of the Ravage MC for about a year now.  He has had his fair share of woman that time but when he meets Harlow everything changes.  From the minute he lays eyes on her and he bad ass attitude he wants her.  And not just for one night.  He is determined to make her his old lady, no matter how hard the fight may be.  As  much as Harlow tries to resist him, there is one thing that is that she cannot and that is the attraction towards Cruz.  He is a bad ass, sexy alpha male who makes her hot.  But she has a rule and she plans on sticking too it.  But the question is how long will that really last?

There was this insta love/attraction for Cruz when it came to Harlow.  I honestly liked Cruz a lot but there were a few time when he was a little too alpha male for me.  But that is just me.  He loved her and would do anything to protect her.  Since getting out of jail there has been a target on Harlow's back as well as the clubs.  And Cruz and the other members will do what is needed to keep her safe. Harlow was probably one of the most bad ass heroines I have ever "met".  She did not take shit from anyone, and fought hard.   When it came to Cruz she tried so hard to resist him but the truth is she was falling for him and it came to a point where she could't deny it any longer.  Cruz and Harlow were good together.  She was a complete alpha male in a woman's body.  She seriously kicked ass!! And Cruz was sexy and all alpha male to the extreme but they way he loved and cared for Harlow just made him that much sexier.  

Ravage Me was a great, quick read.  There was drama, suspense and a few twist and turns that I did not see coming.  Ryan Michelle took you into the world of the Ravage MC where there was sex, violence, betrayal, and a love story in between.  I loved Cruz and Harlow together and you could see how much he loved her and wanted to protect her.  What I also loved about this book was Cruz's son. Harlow instantly fell in love with the little boy and treated him as her own son.  It was so adorable and loving and I think a wonderful addition to the story.  Ravage Me was raw and gritty and intense.  The scenes between Harlow and Cruz were hot and steamy.  Excellent job by Ryan Michelle.  I cannot wait for G.T. and Casey's story.  

Ravage Me Blog Tour Teaser

“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.”
