*REVIEW* "Raising Ryann (Bad Boy Reformed #1)" by Alyssa Rae Taylor

Reviewer: Donna

Rating: 3.5 Stars


The book starts off when Reese is 14 years old and she nearly gets raped by her mum's partner but a boy saves her. Then it moves on to Reese being twenty and she dreams about the boy that saved her as she never knew his name. She now works at the gym teaching martial arts for young girl and this is where she starts working with Luke. Luke know who is she is, she is the girl he saved years ago but doesn't tell her who he is. There's a lot of attraction from the start and I was always trying to understand if Luke wanted her or not as he always blew hot or cold with Reese.

It took a long time to speed up and their were some bits in the book that I felt didn't need to be there. It was a book that had great bits but also had pages I felt were a bit bland and probably could of done without. With there troubled past, it was easy to sympathize with the main characters but sometimes Luke confused with his feeling for Reese.Overall, I enjoyed the storyline and I will be read Resisting Ryann when it comes out in 2014.


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.
