This story had a lot of potential but its execution was not prosperous.

Out of nowhere there was Killian, a caveman and sexy alpha male, who decided that Ellie, a sassy and full of fire girl, was THE one for him.

Ellie’s character was slightly developed while Killian’s almost nonexistent, therefore I didn’t get to know much of the characters or their past they shared. I still haven’t found out what exactly his job was! All this mystery surrounding him was frustrating.
There was no roman

Talk about starting off with a bang and not slowing down for anything until the very end. This baby was a quick read chock full of smexy good times, a good dose of suspense and a whole new crew I want to get to know a whole lot better!

Ellie and Killian. I loved these two. Ellie is strong, sassy and loyal. Once she’s in, she’s all in. Killian definitely has that alpha AF/caveman thing going on, but combined with a steel core of honor and a bluntness that makes it difficult to do anyt

What a story! It packed quite a punch. Killian was Ellie's brother's best friend back in high school. There has always been rumors surrounding Killian, what his elusive dangerous job is, his popularity with women, but are they just rumors? Years have passed since high school, and Ellie is out saving her best friend from a party, but it all goes to crap....Guess who reappears to save Ellie, the man himself, Killian Graham. Where did he come from? What does he do? Who knew Killian and her bro were ...more

5 Stars!

Ryan Michele sure knows her strong heroines and over the top alphas. She knows how to write them and she knows how to create worlds that you never want to leave. Killian was a sexy, sweet, suspenseful, intense, unputdownable, standalone romance that stole my heart within the first few pages and had me hooked until the very last word. Ella and Killian were everything in the most unexpected ways and I couldn't get enough of them.

Hold on to your panties and hearts in this one. Killian is he

Stop what you are doing and read this book! This cover is on HOT and I am willing to admit I wanted to read this booked based on that alone, but when I read the blurb I was caught; hook line and sinker! Killian is book 1 in ‘The Fearless Few’ series.

Ellie and her BFF found themselves in a situation nobody wants to be in, but when the badass alpha Killian turns up and saves the day, Ellie feels like she is back in high school with a crush. Keeping her safe is Killian’s goal and if that means she

Holy alpha testosterone batman!!! Ryan Michele delivers a punch with this story. I loved the total dominate nature of Killian once he goes after Ellie. It took a little to get into the story but once things started to play out with the amazing twists and turns, I was blown away by the concept of the story! Especially as things unraveled. Then You have Ellie who is a complete spitfire who does not back down at all. She is so sassy but she protects her own.
Overall, I honestly devoured this book on

Killian is the high school crush that is beyond a mystery the whole book. Layers are slowly revealed as to who and what he real is and does. Ellie gets so over her head saving her BFF, enter Killian in her life who had never even been a blimp before. Ellie and Killian have a great give and take relationship as he tries to alpha the hell out of her and she won't deal with it.
Can't wait to read the next one in this series.

Wow, what a story. I couldn't put it down once started.

Ryan Michele did amazing job on this book. She had me hooked by first page.

I loved Ellie and Killian together, they may of been stuck together because of circumstances. But they found their way.

I loved meeting all the characters.

Wow Killian is one intense alpha bad a$$. I knew from the first chapter once I started there was no way I could put it down. I LOVED Ellie, I kinda wanna be here when I grow up. Her sassy mouth, and smart a$$ attitude was perfect for Killian. And a little bonus at the end of some familiar faces was a plus!

Let me start by saying that I like Ryan MIchelle. I love the Ravage series and it is one of my favorite MC series. I was really excited for Killian to come out and purchased it.
However.... this book felt like a knock off of Kristen Ashley’s Rock Chick/Mystery Man series. And unfortunately, a bad one. Specifically the book with Hawk and Gwen.
The characters were really one dimensional. Especially Killian. You never find out who he really is or what he really does for a living. He just appears an

Lots of 4 and 5 star reviews for this one that leave me a bit stumped. I'm a huge fan of her books, and this one had a lot of potential, but it feels like there was no editor used or it was fans/friends who didn't want to point out the issues to the author.

First off, the plot was very confusing for me. (view spoiler)

Killian ... an alpha hero you won't forget

From the minute I started reading KILLIAN I knew that this was going to be one almighty rollercoaster ride. Thrills, spills, action, drama, and a bada$$ alpha hero that will take swooning to a whole new level.

Ellie and her best friend Bri are in trouble, can they escape in time? Along comes their knight in shining armour ... Killian Graham. Is he really a knight, is he a man on a mission ... or is he both? Why was he just so suddenly there? What does it

In another non-MC genre book we get to meet Tatum and Killian. Tatum is someone I think most of us can relate to, as her inner monologue made her seem like a real person, at least to me. She wasn't some limp heroine, waiting to be saved. No, she was ready to kick some tail and take names, or at least try to, all while trying to save herself and her BFF. Instead, Killian makes an appearance out of nowhere and saves them both. Killian is a total alpha, demanding that things be his way, without any ...more

I have only read the first book in the “Ravage MC” series by the author. I haven’t gotten around to continuing the series and that’s a shame, since I really enjoy her writing style. “Killian” is a romantic suspense story and you’ll get a Ravage MC surprise at the end!!

Ellie is a successful bar owner, living a quiet life. Everything changes when she tries to rescue her best friend from a bad situation. That’s when Killian comes barging into her life. They knew each other in high school, but never

Killian & Ellie

Loved this one from the first word until the saddest "The End".

Killian is the epidemy of an alpha male. Ellie knew him as her brother's buddy and her schoolgirl crush. He was still around sometimes but no one knew much about him. He was a mercenary, a black ops guy, or something. When Ellie's BFF called her in a panic needing help, she rushed to pull her out of the party with scary-looking guys. Only two different scary guys in black pulled both of them away and locked them in an

Killian by Ryan Michele is book One in The Fearless Few Series. This is the story of Ellie and Killian.
Ellie and her best friend Bri meet when they were young kids fighting over Oreo cookies. They have a ride or die friendship now, so when Bri called Ellie asking for help she went. Ellie found Bri trying to leave a crazy dark party that she was tricked into going. While trying to save Ellie she got caught by Killian and his friend.

Killian is a new book in a brand new series by Ryan and it’s awesome❣️There is action, suspense and yes you guessed it, some drama too👍This is a not to be missed story😁

But while the danger is high, Killian has decided he’s going to claim Ellie at the same time😱 POV is mainly by Ellie, until closer to the end where we

Killian is the first title in the fearless few series, and it sets the tone for a sexy and suspenseful series full of drama, action, intrigue and mystery. Ellie and Killian’s story is a quick and fast paced read that left me intrigued, but still feeling like I have a lot to discover when it comes to the fearless few.
Ellie is strong, sassy, witty, independent and loyal. She’s hard working and will do anything for those she holds dear. Killian is an enigmatic hero, shrouded in an air of mystery.

This is Book 1 in the Fearless Few Series. This was such a good book! I really loved it. There was exciting (and dangerous) things happening form start to finish so you are always looking forward to what’s going to happen next. I have to say that watching Ellie react to Kilian was the most exciting part of the book. Killian reminds me a lot of Ranger in the Stephanie Plum series. He’s a big hot bad *ss who loves to call Ellie “Babe”! He’s protective as all get out and says my woman and mine! My ...more

I haven't read a non MC book from Ryan in a long time so was excited to dive in, especially with the intrigue from the blurb.
From the very beginning I was hooked!

The mysterious Killian will draw you in and you will be turning pages at a fast rate to try learn his secrets.
Poor guy has a bad rep personally, will he be able to prove he's changed? Or will a bullet nick that metaphorical artery?
Then throw in the fact there are literal bullets flying round and this author has cooked up a doozy of a s

As a collector of paperbacks and a total #bookcoverwhore, I would totally buy this one just for the cover alone. HOLY HOTNESS! But, the story inside the pages is even better. Ryan Michele has written the ultimate alpha male in Killian Graham and the perfect woman to bring him to his knees. I swooned hard over Killian, but I think I swooned even harder over Ellie. She’s smart, feisty, and a whole lot sassy and I adored her. These two have massive chemistry, but that’s just a smidge of the

I absolutely loved this book! I couldn’t put it down. From the beginning sparks fly between Killian, quite the mystery man, and Bri.... the girl next door. The book starts with a bang.... and a big mystery. The story is fast paced, action packed and full of romance. It was great!!! This is a bit different for Ryan, but it is every bit as amazing as all of her books. This is a must read!!

It's been awhile since I've read anything by Ryan Michele.
Whew, glad I found her again.

I loved this book! It was action packed with an team of alpha males.

Ellie has always had a crush on Killian, but who hasn't. He's not a one woman man and she doesn't have interest in that. Only now in the middle of chaos, he's ready to be tied down and will do anything to protect her.

I didn't want to stop reading. It was sweet and packed with drama. I look forward to more of this series!
