He’s only a friend. 
Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 
The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 
She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 
Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

I was just a tad bit hesitant for Jessie and Ellen's book. After everything that happened in the previous book Ellen and Jessie weren't my favorite. I wasn't a very big fan because Ellen was dating the hero in the previous book and she broke it off with him because of Jessie. I was just going by what I read, but luckily they grew on me. 
This was a entertaining read. I'm not going to go into details because people don't like any kind of spoilers but let's just say there was a lot of action/suspense and of course romance.
I liked the fact that this was a second chance romance and that Jessie is a single dad. He's a great father and I love how much he loves his son.
 And I really wished Ellen would have stood up to her parents. Bit of course she didn't.
Overall. I reallllly enjoyed Jessie and Ellen's story. At the end of the book Ellen and Jessie do something that just totally make me love them so much more. Ellen has such a huge heart and I really liked that about her.
4 Ellen has such a huge heart stars!💙

I was very curious about Justin and Selena after reading the previous book.

I loved the connection between Justin and Selena. You felt it from the very first time they meet.

I loved how protective and possessive Justin was of Selena. He knew he wanted her from the very start.

It was a short read but a lot did happen in that time. Definitely enough suspense to keep you wanting to know more.



My shoulder hurts like hell but it’s worth the throbbing pain to finally hold her this close. I’ve been dying to do it since I found her in that filthy basement. I can’t explain it. The way she makes me feel inside.    Something has shifted.    Something that wasn’t there before.    I’d been born with an instinct to protect but I’d never had a feeling quite like this. The irrefutable need to not only protect this beautiful, lost creature but claiming her seems almost as peril. It’s what had me leaping in front of that bullet to save her. It’s what has me desperate to hold her right now. Because if I look at those supple lips for another fucking minute, I’m going to possess them in a way that already scares the shit out of me.    Selena pulls away to meet my gaze once more. “Oh, I’m sorry, did I hurt you?” she asks, dragging her fingers beneath her wet eyes.    “I’m good,” I tell her and she smiles shyly.   That tug in my chest grows stronger, my cock twitching with the curl of her lips. The greedy bastard hasn’t let up either. Not since she was bent over me in a pool of my own blood, begging for me to hang on. She thought I was dying, I thought I’d died and gone straight to heaven. Now she’s sitting here in front of me, looking broken and lost and the only thing I can think of is burying myself so deep inside of her nothing bad can ever touch her again.    “The nurse brought me some clean clothes earlier. Would it be okay if I took a shower?”    “Yeah, do whatever you need to do. I’m not going anywhere.”    She giggles and the sound trickles down my spine in a wave of heat. “I won’t be long,” she reassures me. “Do you need anything before I go?”    I shake my head and, almost reluctantly, she eases from the bed. She retrieves the small plastic bag on the couch then walks into the bathroom, shutting the door quietly behind her. When I hear the water switch on, I sink down farther into the bed, exhaling loudly.    Closing my eyes, I do my best not to think about Selena naked in the shower or the fact that she’ll be staying with me at the ranch. A knock sounds before Reid pokes his head inside.    “Hey, I was hoping you would be awake. How’re you feeling?”    “Sore as fuck.”    He walks closer to the bed, taking a seat next to me, looking tired and haggard.    “How’s Cassidy?”    He blows out a long breath, relaxing back in the chair. “She’s going to be okay. They’ll release her in a few days. Bodie came by to talk to her.”    Bodie is Cassidy’s brother and Reid’s former best friend. They thought he was murdered six years ago but turns out he’d been hiding out in Mexico, working for the DEA and infiltrating Del Marco’s cartel.    “How’d that go?”    “I’m still pissed but I gotta find a way to make peace with this shit, for Cassidy at least.”  “You’ll find a way.”    “When are they letting you out?”    “Sometime in the morning,” I answer.    “You call Mom and Dad?”    “Not yet. I’ll wait until I get home. If I call now she’ll be on the first flight out here.”    He nods. “She’ll be pissed when she finds out later.”    “I’ll deal with it. I got other shit to worry about. I’m taking her back to Pop’s with me.”    “You think that’s a good idea?” he asks, eyeing me.    “What the hell is that supposed to mean?”    “Well, for starters, she’s the drug lord’s stolen daughter.”    “Dead drug lord.”    “You really want to get technical right now? Not to mention, she’s only nineteen.”    “What does her age have to do with it?”    “Nothing. Listen, I just think you need to take a step back and look at this. You really have no idea the trauma she has been through and how much help she will need. Hell, you need all the help you can get right now, too. I just think you should tread carefully.”    “You think I don’t know that?” I snap, my patience wearing thin.    I see his point but I don’t care either. She needs help, and I want to be the one to give it to her.    Reid stands up. “I’m just looking out for you, brother. Let me know when they release you.”    I nod then he turns to leave.  Once the door shuts, the bathroom door opens. “Is everything okay?” she asks. Her dark hair hangs loosely around her shoulders, damp from the shower.    “Yeah, why?”    “I thought I heard someone in here and you sounded upset.”    “Reid stopped by, brother shit.”    She nods.    “I always wanted a brother or a sister,” she says sadly, sitting down in the chair next to me. “Is he your only sibling?”    I shake my head. “Hardly, I have five brothers and a pain in the ass sister.”    Selena beams, her smile making the room brighter. “I would love to hear about them.” She tucks her feet into the chair next to me, leaning in closer.    Goddamn, that voice, soft and sweet, her sexy Spanish accent curling around every word. Her eyes are locked firmly on mine, and I suck back a shot of air, clenching the sheet covering me. I know I should listen to my brother. I should be careful with her, not only because of what she’s been through but because she’s so young and vulnerable, and far too pure for the likes of me, but I can’t let her go.    And something in my chest tells me I never will

So, after knowing from the previous book about Deke and the shit he pulled and stuff, it's safe to safe I was worried about his book. But, Ryan Never lets me down.
I was glad to see that he had grown up and took control of his life. He wasn't that little punk that was in Book 1.
And Rylie sure was his match. She was so capable of many things. I applauded her and for how she made money. You don't see very many woman doing the job that she did. I like her. She had spunk and she fit right in with the rest of them.
Overall, great book. Great chemistry between the two leads. And it had great Suspense and romance.

She writes MC, Contemporary, Erotic, Paranormal, New Adult, Inspirational, and many more romances. And whether it’s bikers, wolf shifters, mafia, or beyond, Ryan spends her time making sure her heroes are strong and her heroines match them at every turn.
