USA Today Bestselling author Alyssa Rae Taylor amplifies the angst-filled love story that started in RAISING RYANN. What happens when the person you love becomes threatened by your very existence? How far will you go to keep them safe?

Luke Ryann will do anything to protect the woman he loves, even if it means shattering her heart. When the mystery of his past comes back to haunt him, he leaves Reese behind and enters the life of crime he had worked so hard to escape. When all is said and done, will he be able to get out of this alive, or will he be in over his head? She’s been in love with him since her childhood, but now she questions everything. After Reese Johnson discovers Luke’s disappearance has nothing to do with the MMA, she faces a difficult choice. Can she find it in her heart to forgive him? Or will the secrets and lies be too damaging for her to trust again? Will this couple ever have a chance? You know what they say. 

Sometimes … love just isn’t enough. RESISTING RYANN is the second book in the Bad Boy Reformed Trilogy.This story isn’t just a romance. It’s filled with action, suspense, mystery, and a touch of humor. Recommended for mature readers due to situations of abuse, violence, language, and sexual content.


Luke has a past, one that he doesn’t want to include Reese in.  So when his past comes back and stirs up trouble for him, he will stop at nothing to keep Reese away from it.  He will protect her once again, even if it means breaking her heart.  All that matter to Luke is that Reese is safe.  He will risk his own life to ensure Reese's safety.

"She means everything to me. She's my light in the darkness.  That woman will be the death of me; I guarantee it." ~ Luke Ryann

How far would you go to protect the ones you love?  If it means that they are safe, do you walk away?  Will Luke ever forgive himself for doing what he felt is necessary to keep Reese safe?  In life we have to make choices, did Luke make the right one?  Things aren't always how they appear.  Will Reese be able to pick up the pieces of her broken heart, when Luke leaves?  If Reese was to find out the truth of Luke's past, would she be able to look past it? Would she still love him?  Will she ever understand why Luke made the  choice that he did?  Will she trust him when he asks her to? 

Reese has been in love with Luke Ryann since she could remember.   Luke has always had her heart, even when he didn't realize he did.

"The thought of another man touching you," he says, shaking his head.  "I can't even describe the rage it brings."  If I have to fight for you, I will, no matter which path you choose, because the way I see it, you're mine.  You'll always be mine." ~ Luke Ryann

I absolutely LOVED this book.  I read it in one sitting.  Luke cherishes Reese. Luke made a choice to protect her.  She may not see it now, but when and if she gives him the chance to explain she will love him even more for it.  Reese has always been a priority to Luke, she just doesn't see it.  I cannot wait for the 3rd installment in this series.  I am patiently waiting for it and I sure hope Alyssa Rae Taylor writes quickly, because she left me on the edge of my seat desperately wanting more!!!  Resisting Ryan will have you wanting more as it is filled with suspense and several twists that I did not see coming.

I am TEAM LUKE, and I want both Reese and Luke to get what they both deserve, happiness and love.  I just hope Alyssa gives them what I want.
