Bound by Affliction by Ryan Michele ~ Amy’s Review


I’m a big fan of motorcycle club books and Ryan Michele.  Put the two together and you’re usually in for a damn good read.



One minute, one second, one breath, it was all for a future that was suddenly unknown.

The attraction was powerful and undeniable, neither knowing where it would lead, but both willing to go along for the ride. A bond between them developed weaving itself towards something good and right.

In the flash of a moment, one decision changed the course of everything.

Ty “Green” Burm had a family, a job he loved, and a woman he was ready to call his. With the Ravage MC at his back, he knew he could take on anyone.

Except the Red Devil’s MC got to Leah first. The things they did to her …

Unspeakable hell.

Leah Johnston is now lost, broken and torn. Once vibrant, she’s drowning in fear and has lost all hope for anything in her life. And for anyone.

The pain now stands between them and even Ravage can’t fix this for Green.

These two are bound by affliction and it’s going to take time, patience and understanding for love to overcome the scars between them.

When ghosts of the past are unable to be shaken off, can these two find their way towards the good and right once again or will everything crumble around them leaving them both in the dust.

One thing is for sure. The men of the Ravage MC do not back down.


I’m a huge fan of Ryan Michele and the entire Ravage MC family.  The books skirt that line of nice guys that you want to love and rough bikers who will do whatever it takes to keep their family safe.   Her books let you dive into a more rough and tumble life style were loyalty is the only real rule.

Leah and Green’s story was a tough one for me.  Neither of these characters really appealed to me.  I couldn’t get into their story as easily as I had others in these series.  This book was a bit darker than the others with a lot more in-depth descriptions of physical violence both dealt out and received.  I didn’t mind it, I really think it helped the storyline along and helped you delve a little deeper into where Leah and Green were at mentally.  But overall it wasn’t enough to make this story as good as Ryan’s other books.

This felt like a borrowed storyline.  Re-visiting what we experienced in Bristyol’s book (though told from new perspectives) it didn’t hold a lot of excitement for me.  As the story progressed everything just seemed to fall into place so easily where in the past the men had to work a little harder to get what they wanted.  This book just didn’t hold the same amount of excitement for me that her other books had.

If you are a fan of this series I would say read this book.  You’ll want to know what is going on and get a quick visit from some old favorites like Rhy’s and Princess.
