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

Cade 'Spook' Baker and Trixie Lamasters met each other in high school, but their relationship didn't last past that when Cade had to leave her in order to take over Vipers Creed, his dads Motorcycle Club. From there both of their lives went in different directions. Him now the president of the Club, and Trixie the owner of Sirens, the local strip club.

Sirens is what brings her into Cade's, excuse me I mean Spook's, life again. One of her employee's borrows a substantial amount of money from her

In Challenged we meet Spook and Trixie. They had a relationship in high school but that ended when Spook took over Vipers Creed MC from his dad. They don't see each other again until Trixie goes to him for help with an employee. This book was so good! Spook was all Alpha and Trixie was so feisty. Loved them! ...more
Another enjoyable read from Ryan Michele. Fast-paced low angst biker read. Great hero who knows what he wants and a strong and feisty heroine. Recommend if you are looking for an easy but slightly gritty biker read.

Cade 'Spook' Baker and Trixie "Trix" Lamasters met 15 years ago in high school, they dated for 6 months then Cade had to leave her for the Vipers Creed Motorcycle Club, breaking Trixie's heart.

Fifteen years later, "Trix" has to go to "Spook" for a favor. Trix owns Sirens, a strip club, and one of her girls, Nanette, is hiding out at the clubhouse and she owes Trix a pretty big chunk of change and Trix wants payment in full.

I am a HUGE fan of Ryan Michele. I fell in love with the Ravage MC and haven't looked back since. While I am not a huge MC fan, Ryan has a way of intriguing me and teasing my sense, making me fall harder than I ever have before. Well step over Ravage because there is a new club in town and they have taken top honors. Wait until to meet the Vipers Creed MC...

I loved this book... like every single fucking piece of it. It was a brilliant masterpiece that captivated me from the first page an

Some show the raw side of two people in love with.

Challenged focused on a second chance love within a MC life with only a touch of grit and crime.

Trixie: Smart, strong, and sexy - a true trifecta. Her business Sirens is her main focus. She is self-made and proud of it. She had her heart broken once and never again. Booty calls are purely ok fo

Challenged marks a new era in Ryan Michele MC romance novels. It speeds into the dark and twisted world of the Vipers Creed MC and doesn’t let off the throttle once. Michele has created a gritty and suspenseful world filled with sexy bikers and tough as nails chicks. I’ll admit as much as I love Michele’s Ravage MC series, I was worried going in because I wasn’t sure what I would expect. It’s a different world with completely unfamiliar characters, but as I turned the pages I feel just as much a ...more

Note to all : grab this baby fast you will not be disappointed !!!!!!!

Challenged is book #1 in Ryan Michele's new MC series "Vipers Creed.
I'll start by saying that if you have read any of Ryan's other books you will definitely be hooked on this one, once again she sucked me right into this story and I had such a book hangover it was hard to start another.

I absolutely love my MC books and Ryan Michele is an exceptional writer when it comes to MC books. Each character and couple in her books is unique in their own right. When I heard she had a new MC series I was like NO!!! I need more of my Ravage MC!! But you are easily going to fall in love with the men of Vipers Creed. This book pulled me in right away, had me falling in love with the characters, and pulling for Spook and Trixie to find their way back to each other.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, suspense, second chances, secrets, lies, and heartbreak.

This is Trix and Cade (Spook)’s story. Trix and Cade had one night years ago. Then Cade acted as though she didn’t exist. Cade had his reasons but didn’t share them. Now Trix showed up at his compound for a woman that owed her. Cade decides this is his chance to claim her. Now he just needs to convince her that she is his. Can he heal her broken heart that he caused by his act

Ryan Michele has done it again, she's brought us another MC to fall in love with! How can you possibly not fall in love with the Vipers Creed MC and especially their dirty talking, sexy Alpha Male President Spook aka Cade.

The minute he meets his childhood sweetheart Trixie again, he's hooked, he let her get away once to protect her but he's not letting her go again as fate has reunited them. She feisty and sexy and certainly going to keep him on his toes. She's the perfect Ol Lady for the club

My Trix

I enjoyed this book a lot, but there was a little something missing. I didn't really like how Trix pushed away so much. I understood it, just didnt like it. Maybe if there time together was longer then a week or so it would have been a little better. But overall this was a good fast read.

What could be better than an MC romance with a second chance romance added in? I will tel you... NOTHING! Cade (Spook) and Trixie had a high school romance that didn't last when he left her to go and take over his father's motorcycle club, Viper's Creed. Each went their separate ways and during the fifteen years they have been apart Cade has become the president of the Viper's Creed MC while Trixie has become the owner of the local strip club, Sirens.

Challenged is the book that kick starts the Vipers Creed MC series. Ryan Michele did another fantastic job on this book. At heart this gritty biker romance is about love and trust and how hard it is to earn your way back. It had me captivated from beginning to end.

Ryan Michele started this romance out sweet and sexy and all about an enduring love that was never forgotton. Then later on it took a suspenseful turn, hitting on a heavy topic with a bit of thrilling action. Cade and Trix had to over

I have had a love/hate relationship with this author and her books from the very start, fortunately for me though it has been a more love than hate thing going on. So to say when I start to read her books I am apprehensive to say the least, but Challenged was really good and my apprehension quickly went out the door and was replaced with holy hell what will happen next. Challenged is a second chance romance with the added addition of a smoking hot alpha male

I have always loved reading a gritty, hot, and sexy motorcycle club book. I enjoy when the men are rough, bad talking, and as I like to call them… super alpha’s. Cade (AKA Spook) is a super alpha and always gets what he wants. Trixie is the owner of the strip club, Sirens, and also an ex-girlfriend of Cade’s from high school.

It seems like everyone is trying their hand at the MC genre and some have failed miserably but Ryan Michele isn't one of those people.

I loved this book from the beginning and couldn't put it down.
I needed to know what was going on with Trixie and Cade.

Trixie goes looking for a girl who owes her money and it all points to the local MC.
The president just happens to be the guy who she gave her heart to while in high school.

What a ride! I have to say this is the first book I have read by this author and I will going back for more!
Trixie is strong, independent and fierce...the only one with power over her is Cade or Spook as that's is MC name.
She doesn’t want anything to do with him after he broke her heart..but here they are about to meet after 15 years.
She made a bad decision and now she needs his help.
I loved their first encounter...Trixie was all attitude but the attraction was there.

This is a good start to a new series . I love Ryan Michele M/C stories and the audios are no different. Mason Lily’s was great. His voice is smooth and clear. He knows how to the male parts of an M/C perfectly. The female narrator was okay not great but okay

This is the start of a new series, Ryan Michele is bringing us some new guys to see fall in love, and I am sooo looking forward to the next book.

Spook and Trix have a run in of sort; Trix needs his help and hates to ask him, but the lead she has leads right to his clubhouse, so she needs to go to him to see if he can help. There is some serious drama in this story; the kind you expect with an MC club. Sexy times are off the chart hot.

I can say more, a whole lot more

Ryan Michele keeps me coming back for more. I swear Ryan Michele gets better with each word she types. Challenged is an amazing start to a new series. We have new characters, Spook and Trixie, to fall in love with along with a few others. Spook is strong, tatted and all ALPHA! He is a character that will melt your heart and your panties all at the same time. Trixie is sassy, strong and one fierce woman. She can stand toe to toe with these guys.

Wow! What a start to the series, a real page turner.
I loved the new characters we were introduced too. The heroine Trixie is as tough as any of the bikers and make no mistake. She was great through out the story and showed amazing strengths. And Spook, he's so HOT! He can boss me around any day,
he knew what he wanted and he wasn't going to wait around to get it.

There was great tension and suspense through out the story between Trixie and Spook, and plenty of steamy, sticky, hot sex. A fantastic
