Review: Bound by Destiny by Ryan Michele (Ravage MC Bound #5)


Note: This ARC was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I've been anxiously awaiting Emery Gavelson's story ever since Austyn Cruz and Ryker James's book, Bound by Vengeance, came out, and while I loved Bound by Affliction, which is my favorite book in the series, I'm thrilled that Emery finally gets her story told in the fifth novel in Ryan Michele's Ravage MC Bound series. Bound by Destiny finds twenty-one-year-old Emery (daughter of GT and Casey from Seduce Me, Ravage MC #2) still haunted by what happened to her and Austyn at the hands of a vicious man. However, she's determined to move forward with her life, and that includes letting go of her feelings for twenty-one-year-old Micah Tugger (son of Tug and Blaze from Consume Me from Ravage MC #3). He rejected her once before and his actions afterwards made it clear to Emery that he saw her as nothing more than as a friend. But then after distancing himself from his parents and the club, Micah realizes just how much he's lost in the process. Finding his place within his family and Ravage is difficult enough, but finding his place in Emery's life may prove to be far more insurmountable, especially when thirty-year-old Jackson "Jacks" Warren is considered more of family than Micah, and how Jacks seems to have a hold of the very heart that Micah had always hoped he could claim for himself.

Okay, this is going to prove to be a difficult review to whip together, mainly because the author has requested that reviews not contain any spoilers. Now, before you go biting my head off over what I've already written, I haven't mentioned much of anything that isn't already in the synopsis for the book. I've given you the basics in that first paragraph. Yes, the book is about Emery, and yes, she shares her story with the boy that she always loved and the man that's both piqued her curiosity and pinged her battered heart. No, I'm not going to tell you if this is a three-sided relationship or if she ends up with one guy and who that guy is. You'll have to read the book on your own, and I'm also going to seriously recommend that you read the series in order because this happens to be one of those series where there are ties that link the books together, loose as some of those ties may be. Ryan Michele continues to do the legacy of the original Ravage MC series proud with this Ravage MC Bound spin-off, but she also sets this new generation of couples apart by allowing them to stand out and have their own stories to tell. Both series can be read independently of each other, but go ahead and read all the books anyway. Bound by Destiny gets five stars and that cliffhanger ending has me itching for book six already! ♥
