Seduce Me Tour Stop!

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?
I am so glad I got the opportunity to read this book sooner rather than later. Shortly after its release, I snagged a copy of Ravage Me and read it; while I enjoyed it, parts of it fell short for me which rendered it a good read, but not a great read. When Seduce Me came up for review, I snagged it because I wanted to see if Ms. Michele’s writing has continued to evolve. She did not disappoint. Seduce Me is just as action-packed as book one was, but it provided more character development and angst this time around.

Casey and G.T. were both raised in the MC lifestyle, but because of their genders they had different experiences once they hit their teens. Once he hit 13, the elders began grooming G.T. to take a leadership role. Bam, Casey’s father, was determined to insure that she had a choice and options to live a life outside of the club once she hit 18. Unfortunately she did not know this and we learn that it is the little things his decision causes that make her feel like an outsider, which causes her to leave the club for college – well, that and G.T. Ms. Michele does an excellent job in Casey’s character development and the way in which she does and does not express herself. The trauma that Casey undergoes and her reactions to it are so realistic, I felt like I was reading about an actual person and not the author’s creation … which is the way it should be. And while I don’t personally know any bikers, G.T.’s reactions felt similarly realistic and I couldn’t help but feel badly for him as he dealt with devastating blow after devastating blow. The chemistry between Casey and G.T. is explosive and makes for some very steamy sex scenes.  

Whereas Ravage Me was a good read, Seduce Me is a great read … at least for me. I was able to immerse myself in Casey and G.T.’s story, while catching up with characters from the previous book. I enjoy seeing an author’s writing style improve from one book to the next and Ms. Michele’s Ravage MC series has definitely improved. I look forward to reading the next book in the series. 

Ryan Michele has a huge obsession with reading, which only came to life after her best friend said she had to read Twilight. After reading that series, her entire world changed in the blink of an eye. Not only was she sucked into new worlds and all of the wonderful words authors put down on paper, she felt the urge to begin to write down the characters that played inside of her head. In doing so, Safe was born. Then Wanting You, Ravage Me currently Seduce Me. 

When she’s not reading or writing, she spends time taking care of her two children and her husband, enjoying the outdoors and laying in the sun.
