My not-so-secret affair with romance novels
Raising Ryann, the first book in the Bad Boy Reformed series, isn’t just a story about first love. It’s filled with action, suspense, mystery, and a touch of humor.
Oh dear lord an MMA fighter! If only I could find a Luke Ryann at the local gym… I love this book! Luke and Reese were wonderful characters. Where Luke’s caring, sexy, funny, and real, Reese is spunky, lovable, and a survivor. They truly complement each other and I just wanted to shake Luke for fighting the attraction for so long!! The other characters were great too and I can’t wait to read about them again. Raising Ryann included some pretty hilarious episodes – many of them at the expense of Reese. Poor girl must have been so embarrassed, but I appreciated the funny banter. Now that I’m done with this fabulous book, I’m dying for the second one!! Seriously, Alyssa. I. Need. MORE. Luke & Reese have ridiculous chemistry and I can’t wait to see where the next novel takes them. Hopefully I find out soon =)
Twenty-year-old Reese Johnson can finally leave her troublesome past behind. She enters college with her best friend, Gia, and spends her time doing what she loves—working as a self-defense instructor at a local gym. Then Luke Ryann enters the picture. He’s the tall, dark, and tattooed MMA fighter her boss hires to privately train her. One minute, he captivates her with his piercing brown eyes and boyish dimples. The next, he infuriates her with his relentless banter and cocky bad boy behavior. He’s the last thing she wants or needs, and she never expects to fall in love with him.
Luke’s jaded past has him keeping a safe distance. Despite what he feels, some things are better left alone. He has a dangerous secret—one that has the potential to risk their lives. As he fights the attraction between them, can he resist the growing tension and protect the woman he’ll never be able to have?
