Blog Tour & Giveaway- Raising Ryann by Alyssa Rae Taylor

 Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]


 Twenty-year-old Reese Johnson can finally leave her troublesome past behind. She enters college with her best friend, Gia, and spends her time doing what she loves—working as a self-defense instructor at a local gym. Then Luke Ryann enters the picture. He’s the tall, dark, and tattooed MMA fighter her boss hires to privately train her. One minute, he captivates her with his piercing brown eyes and boyish dimples. The next, he infuriates her with his relentless banter and cocky bad boy behavior. He’s the last thing she wants or needs, and she never expects to fall in love with him.

Luke’s jaded past has him keeping a safe distance. Despite what he feels, some things are better left alone. He has a dangerous secret—one that has the potential to risk their lives. As he fights the attraction between them, can he resist the growing tension and protect the woman he’ll never be able to have?

Recommended for mature audiences due to situations of abuse, violence, strong language and sexual content.

Raising Ryann, the first book in the Bad Boy Reformed series, isn’t just a story about first love. It’s filled with action, suspense, mystery, and a touch of humor.



Alyssa Rae Taylor had such a great balance in this book in my opinion. Hot hot hot guy, girl wasn’t needy but had issues but was confident and knew how to take care of herself. Good best friends, some drama. Oh, and how can I forget some sexual tension that had you crossing your fingers that this time would be it!! (Alyssa was a tease when it came to bedroom scenes!! But it fit the story line very well) Reese and Luke had so much sexual tension in this book it was crazy. Luke was trying to protect Reese by not getting attached but sometimes you can’t help a strong pull you have with someone and Luke was losing that battle very quick when it came to Reese. I am very excited and will try and wait patiently for book 2! I give this book 4 stars!


About the Author

alyssa rae taylor

I’m a mother of three, wife of one and caregiver to two English Bulldogs. I spend most my time taking care of my children or watching Sam & Dean Winchester, fight off scary creatures on the WB.

I’m also a big reader, and tend to prefer books that tug at my emotions. I’m a sucker for any love story that includes bad boys, alpha males, fighters, rockers, and tattoos. I also enjoy an angsty read, and am not a fan of the instalove type romance.

The first time I picked up a pen and started writing, I couldn’t stop, which leads to the publishing of my first novel Raising Ryann, coming out August 2013.

I live in Phoenix Arizona with my husband, our three daughters, two English Bulldogs, two Holland Lops bunnies, & a Beta fish.
