Regulators MC Series, Book #2
She is strong, independent, but jaded.
He is a hardened soldier.
Two people are forced to come together to move beyond the physical injuries of one.
Desirae Shythe is a physical therapist driven to see her patients thrive. Her happiness in life comes from her success, no matter how small the step.
Ethan ‘Hammer’ McCoy is known for having an iron fist and an iron heart.
When an injury confines him to a wheelchair, he meets the fierce physical therapist who makes it her personal mission to see him walk again.
As they both face the struggles of his rehabilitation, can he hammer his way into her heart?
Loosely attached to Chelsea Camaron’s Hellions Series and Jessie Lane’s Ex Ops Series
This is the second book in the Regulators MC series. When the first book Ice ended Hammer was left in a wheelchair. He was in a dark place feeling sorry for himself not feeling like a full man not being able to walk. Des the physical therapist that whipped Tank back into shape and sent to help Hammer while laying low from the men who killed her sister.
I loved Des she was tough and never backed down no matter how much of an ass Hammer was being. She had a job to do and by god she was going to do it no matter how much grief Hammer gave her. Hammer never thought he could love and had a heart of ice but as days go by he realized Des may be the one to thaw it. Des is determined not to cross that line of therapist/ patient relationship. She is professional and hard core when it comes to her job. Can Hammer get her to bring down her walls as she thaws his heart?
These two had the best banter with Hammer the alpha male attitude and Des never back down attitude. They were perfect for each other. Although, I did want to smack Hammer at times for his attitude. I also enjoyed seeing Ice and Cole and the guys from Chelsea Camaron’s Hellions Series again. I do have to say there wasn’t enough closure for me and was not real happy with Lucas from Jessie Lanes Ex-Ops series. I am so curious to have Cole’s story he is so mysterious plus I want to see him find his match like Ice and Hammer have.
USA Today Bestselling Author Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming.
Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.
Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.
When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.
She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
Jessie Lane is a best-selling author of Paranormal and Contemporary Romance, as well as, Upper YA Paranormal Romance/Fantasy.
She lives in Kentucky with her two little Rock Chicks in-the-making and her over protective alpha husband that she’s pretty sure is a latent grizzly bear shifter. She has a passionate love for reading and writing naughty romance, cliff hanging suspense, and out-of-this-world characters that demand your attention, or threaten to slap you around until you do pay attention to them.
She’s exactly what he’s looking for…
Chase Doucet knows what he wants. He’s a man who lives his life on the edge, and as far as he can see, so does Katrina Craig. One way or another, he’s determined to have her.
He’s her match in every way but one…
Katrina Craig has finally found the man and adventure she’s been looking for. But when life throws her a curve ball, suddenly she’s got a secret that could ruin everything.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
When Chase and Katrina/Kitty first meet was in his brother’s book. He was smitten by her spunk and intelligence but she was in the middle of an ugly divorce so he let her be. This book starts out and Chase is done letting her be. After a ball he comes and claims this woman that he knows is his mate. His forever. The two have an amazing time but Kitty flips out. She is literally getting divorced from her abusive ex and can’t jump into anything even though she KNOWS Chase is her fated mate. She runs. Not just from him and their bond, but because she needs to figure out her life before she starts a new life with Chase.
6 weeks of moping and Chase’s bothers are kicking his butt into gear. They are tired of him moping and not going after this woman…HIS WOMAN!! When Kitty shows up and drops a bomb on him, Chase flips out. Thankfully his brothers are there to kick his butt back into gear and fix things with his mate. Katrina is happy and moving forward when her past shows up and causes trouble for her new life and her future with Chase.
As usual, I love these quick stories and the build-up for the next books going to be a good one. I will admit that this book did get me a little more emotional because of what happens to Katrina when her past resurfaces and the damage it may cause to her future.

Lust, love, and second chances.
Growing up in the fast-paced and rough life of a motorcycle club wasn’t easy. Cleaning up the mess his father had made of Vipers Creed meant sacrifice. Cade ‘Spook’ Baker had given up everything to bring the club life back to what it was supposed to be: a family.
The choices he made were not what he wanted, but they were necessary for the club as a whole.
Second chances rarely came to Spook, so when his Trixie walked boldly into his clubhouse, the decision was made. Trixie would once again be his, this time for good.
Trix Lamasters was raised by a master—a master con. All grown up, she made her life solid by making it about her club, Sirens. But one bad business decision brought her to her knees, forcing her to call on the one person she had sworn she would never trust again.
Pasts have a way of not staying there. Things that were buried deep have a way of finding themselves in the light of a new day. Could something that had once crashed and burned for Spook and Trixie find a way out of the wreckage? With the odds against them, can they find a way to overcome the challenges, or will it all blow up in their faces?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
So a friend told me that I NEEDED to read this author. When this book came around, I jumped. I knew her other MC series was popular and I trusted my friends judgement so I grabbed it. OMG I am super excited that I did.
I love 2nd chance stories especially when they have hot alpha males and sassy stubborn heroines. Who doesn’t love a CHALLENGE too right?? Well this book is so full of it that you will be left sitting in one entire afternoon unable to put the book down.
Cade/Spook loved Trix/Trixie in high school. He knew that she was the one for him but his “family obligations” needed him so he had to cut her loose. When she struts into his life 15 years later looking for an employee, he will not let her go……..
I honestly don’t know which of the two I liked more. I mean they both were perfect. Her sass and his caveman thumping put me in heaven. I loved the side cast of characters but wow the twistss and turns we got about Cade and Trixie’s fathers……I mean…yikes bad family drama.
I have got to say I am super excited to read about Boner and Stiff. I don’t know which of these brothers I want more? I mean they both had me cracking up so I am curious about what kind of woman kicks their alpha butts in gear.
I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review.
This was a great story. I have never read Ryan Michele’s work before but I’m glad I read this one. I have to say I am very excited about this series. The men are phenomenal and I can only imagine their women are going to be just as great.
Cade/Spook grew up in the MC world and knew where he was going to be. He found and fell for his true love in high school but knew he could not keep her so he left her behind for his club. Until the day Trixie came knocking on his door and everything flew right out the window as far as Spook was concerned.
Trixie was raised by the best con around but after the child hood she had with her father and the broken heart in high school she threw herself into her work to forget everything and never looked back. Until the day one of her employees cheated her and led her right to her high school flame Cade. She tried to keep those walls up around Cade and denied her feelings but all the rules have changed.
The Chemistry between these two could have burned the pages off my kindle, yes they were that HOT. Spooks is a total Alpha, dominate sexy and knew how to get the job done. Trixie is strong independent full of sass and defiantly did not need a man around if she didn’t want him there. The twists in this story were amazing some were total blindsides.
This was a great start to the series. I’m so excited to read more of these guys and see them meet their matches.
My favorite line:
“One look at you in my clubhouse, and that was all it took. I knew… knew you were mine. In knowing this down to my fucking bones, I trust you completely, I know I have to earn yours.
I woke to a very cold bed. My hand reached out, touching nothing. I listened, but I didn’t hear a sound. It surprised me. I usually slept lightly, never knowing when I needed to be on guard. Something about being in bed with her, having her cuddled up to me, had me sleeping like a fucking log.
Rolling out of bed, I grabbed my pants and shirt, throwing them on along with my cut, socks, and boots. I walked down the hall of the little ranch house.
“Trixie?” I called into the nothingness.
I looked through the house, but she was nowhere. The little minx jumped out on me.
A piece of paper on the table had a large scrawl on it.
I had shit to do. Lock the bottom lock when you leave. Please don’t come back.
I chuckled. Woman had no fucking clue who she was dealing with. Oh, I’d be back … tonight or this afternoon. I hadn’t decided yet.
“You get anywhere with Cade?” Jett, my assistant asked as she plopped down in the chair in front of my desk. She had a beauty that pulled everyone in and curves that made me insanely jealous. Her long, dark hair laid pencil straight, and her eyes were a blue that looked almost gray in different lights.
My stomach fell at her question, reminding me of last night. I couldn’t believe I fucking slept with him. Not just fucked him, but showered with him, fell asleep with him … woke up in his damn arms. Sneaky bastard.
I could still feel him between my legs. Hell, I even had phantom feelings of him inside of me. He’d had a lot of practice. I knew he had because I had heard all about it. And I wasn’t any better than one of those paid hookers.
Fucking moron. My reasons had sucked before. They meant shit now.
I wanted to pass off the night as being just another booty call, a way to fuck each other out of our systems, but both were a flat out lie. Last night was so much more than anything Taylor, or any of my other weak-ass booty calls, and I had ever been.
The rawness in his eyes captivated me. God, his eyes … I could see so much more in them last night. More than I’d ever thought I would see. But I was just fooling myself. I wouldn’t go back fifteen years to fall for the bad boy again, just to get my heart smashed all over again.
Mortification didn’t even cut it when it came to describing how I felt. Weak. Pathetic. I gave in, letting him have that power over me with his smooth talking and fantastic bed skills. Plus, he had looked sexy as hell in his leather and jeans. To see him on a motorcycle, too, was just a recipe for disaster. And I had just spread my legs, begging for him to give it to me. Dammit.
Although I was dead serious in the note I left him this morning, it felt really odd to leave it for him in my own house. Nevertheless, I couldn’t stay and deal with the morning after shit. One look and I would have let him inside my body again. I would have let him take me over and over until I really couldn’t walk. Now that I knew how much he had grown, let alone changed in the bedroom, it would be more difficult than ever to say no to him.
I had to remember Cade crushed me. My first love left me to pick up the pieces of my torn heart. I couldn’t go back to the me from that time.
“He doesn’t know if Nanette is there.” I decided to leave out the whole him fucking my brains out bit. I wouldn’t open up that can of worms. I told Jett all about Cade one night after way too many shots of tequila. Regardless, the less people who knew about the now, the better.
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 and the Ravage MC series.
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.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.
I have recently become allergic to caffeine, so my addictions have shifted from tea and chocolate to expensive soaps. Guess that makes me a soapaholic!
There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?
I actually prefer to write stand-alone books. Maintaining the continuity of a series can be difficult
Where do you do most of your writing?
At the desk in the corner of my bedroom.
What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?
I prefer Regency romances. Always have. I’ve read every Georgette Heyer ever written and a lot of Mary Balogh’s books.
What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?
The fact that it takes about ten good reviews to make me forget about a bad one. Sometimes it takes more than that!
What are you working on now?
The second book in my Cowboy Heaven series, Must Love Cowboys will be released on April 5. Right now, I’m working on a paranormal romantic suspense trilogy. No idea yet on when or how it will be published.
What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?
Dinner and a movie with my husband and sons.
Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?
The lowest probably was a recent review that was 2 stars. It was also the high as well. The way the review was written got me thinking about my writing and my process and I realized i wasn’t giving the readers the best of me. The 2 star stung, like I think any low review does, but it was written in a way that changed how approached my stories.
