REVIEW Ryder by L.A. Casey

Branna Murphy is broken. For months now she has been a part of a one-sided relationship to a man she loves more than life itself. She prayed for a miracle, and hoped something would change, but found that was wishful thinking.
Talking didn’t work. Shouting didn’t work. Crying didn’t work. Nothing bloody worked.
Ryder Slater is furious. For months now he has been lying to a woman he would take a bullet for in order to protect her. He is involved in something that goes deeper than his old past, and if he strays off target, people will start to die. People he loves.
He couldn’t talk. He couldn’t slip up. He couldn’t lose focus. He couldn’t do a damn thing.
Things between Ryder and Branna are at rock bottom, and Ryder knows it. Not only will he be taking on a force that could destroy his whole family, but he will be battling tooth and nail to save his relationship and keep the love of his life by his side.
Ryder targeted Branna from the first moment he saw her, and what Ryder targets, Ryder dominates.

I received an ARC of Ryder by L.A. Casey in exchange for an honest review.

I have got to start by saying that I absolutely adore L.A. Casey and this is one woman who in my eyes can do no wrong. Ryder is no exception to this statement. There is a slightly different feel to Ryder than there is to the previous books in this series, but I believe that is down to the new approach Casey has taken. 

There are quite a few flashbacks in Ryder, this enhances the story beautifully as you get to explore Branna and Ryder's relationship right from the very beginning. Learning Ryder's secret was worth the wait as this book is filled with suspense, action and yes a good amount of romance. 
Branna is a wonderful heroine and her thoughts and reactions are so real and so well written that you completely understand her point of view and experience her joy and heartbreak right alongside her. You also get to see a brand new side to Ryder and what is also fantastic about this particular book is that both Ryder and Branna are the responsible adults and basically the parental figures of the group. Because of this, all of the siblings responses to every situation are priceless and really make this a Must Read book for 2016.
