Conquering - Ryan Michele - Blog Tour

Title: Conquering
Series: Vipers Creed MC #2
Author: Ryan Michele
Genre: MC Romance
*This book can be read as a STANDALONE* 

I fight for what’s mine. 

Growing up with a junkie for a mother, Stiff’s responsibilities came young and fast, taking care of his brother with everything he had. If that meant getting his hands dirty, then so be it. 

Becoming part of Vipers Creed MC gave him the family he and his brother never had, people they could count on. He vowed to protect them, even when that meant turning his back on the woman who gave him life … until Chelsea. 

He knew he wasn’t good enough for her, but he didn’t care. He had to have her. 

After all, Stiff always fought for what was his. No matter the price. 

No one messes with my family. 

Chelsea Miller’s life was simple: work, family, save for the future. Every day was the same. Her ultimate goal: live an easier life than the one she’d been dealt. That was, until her sister ended up bleeding, bruised, and fighting for her life. 

Everything in Chelsea’s life changed in an instant. And the cost of protecting her family was far higher than she had bargained for. 

Stiff. The Vipers Creed MC. A relentless trail of bullets and carnage. Everything she knew turned on its head. 

Survival of the fittest, they say. Well, Chelsea’s a survivor. And she refuses to go down without a fight. 

When two stubborn people clash in a combustion of passion and family, will conquering each other come at a price neither of them is willing to pay?

5 Stars 

I loved Chelsea and Stiff's story, they are both complex and endearing characters. Stiff is one of those characters that you really need to look past his outward portrayal. He comes across as quite aloof and arrogant, but is actually sweet, loving and loyal to those he considers family. He is also quite vulnerable and lost, something you don't often associate with an alpha. 

I love a strong heroine and Chelsea is no slouch and gives as good as she gets. She is protective, loyal and strong and completely independent, she hates brim reliant on others. 

This pair are both incredibly stubborn and leads to some engaging and entertaining banter. 

Both Chelsea and Stiff have issues with their families that connects them, and the fallout cements their connection. They have an intense chemistry and at times the violence is quite graphic. 

The storyline of Conquering hooked me right from the start with an engaging plot full of danger, passion and action. Although this is the second book in the Vipers Creed series, it can be read as a standalone. I loved that the characters from the first book were prevalent in this book as well. I am a huge Ryan Michele fan, and I've got to say this book surpasses Challenged the first book in the series. I cannot wait to read more stories of the members of the vipers creed MC.
