Wes ‘Stiff’ Collins lived life on the wild side. He worked from the moment he knew what the word meant, always making the best of every situation. There was nothing about his past he would change.
Without a real family except his brother Xander, Stiff joined the Vipers Creed Motorcycle Club, and they taught him what it was to have people he could depend on. When his past crashed into his present, he vowed to protect the club that had always been his steady, even if it meant turning his back on the woman who had given him life.
Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, take care of her family, and save for the future. Everything was about having a goal and a plan. However, when her sister ended up battered and bruised on a diner floor, everything she thought was in her past suddenly threatened her future. In a moment, she had a new goal, everything else be damned. She would protect her family … at all costs.
Stiff and Chelsea’s worlds collide in an explosion of determination, strength, and lust. Will they give in to temptation, or will conquering each other be too steep a price? Two people not afraid to put in the work will either overcome everything in their paths or finally crumble under life’s troubles they can’t escape, all in the name of family.

 Sometimes in life things are sitting right in front of you and you never see them.

There is nothing like a head strong woman, who knows what she wants out of life and is determined to achieve that by hard work.  This is the very definition of  Chelsea Miller.  She works hard, and believes in the value of family and of sacrifice.  She is determined to make her life better as well as those she loves.  What she doesn't expect is to find herself  in the arms of a man she has seen many many times over the years, yet he seemed so untouchable.

Wes Collins, aka Stiff, has watch Chelsea from a distance to some sense.  He has eaten in the diner for years that she works at, but she has been nothing but a mere acquaintance.  He has admired her work ethic and even her beauty, but never ventured any further.  He felt as if he was better off with the live he lived single.

The thing about that is that fate threw a bit of a curve into his well laid plans as well as all but flipped Chelsea's life upside down when her sister is beaten.

This is a story that will show you how you grow up learning life's lesson from the school of hard knocks.  But, with that being said you still find the romance to be off the charts.  The push and pull that Ryan writes between these two is fantastic.  I have to sat that this is probably one of my more favorite books written by her.  When she first wrote the Vipers Creed I was convinced that Trix would be the one that could not be topped, but I have to rethink that because, Ryan really did an amazing job by telling us Chelsea's story.  This book even though it is a MC romance, it really is more about the strong willed woman and her resilience to over come the obstacles that are thrown her way.  When life hands Chelsea lemons, she really does make them into lemonade...

Ryan Michele found her passion in making fictional characters come to life. She loves being in an imaginative world where anything is possible and has a knack for special twists readers don’t see coming.
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.
When she isn’t writing, Ryan is a mom and wife living in rural Illinois and reading by her pond in the warm sun.
