Elizabeth “Liz” Frost has always been the wild one. But now, with a niece or nephew on the way and her promise to become half of the new psychic Oracle team for the Blood Ravagers Biker Gang, she’s ready to turn over a new leaf. And what better way to start than by answering the call when gang leader Dante needs help? Her mission: to travel cross-country to get the information the gang needs to complete the Oracle Binding Ceremony. Should be easy, right? Except for the incredibly tempting lone-wolf shifter named Dex who’ll be her riding partner and protector on the journey.

Dexter “Dex” MacCallahan is tasked with guarding Liz Frost, one of the gang’s beautiful and bewildering new psychics. Dex can’t refuse the mission, but there’s one small problem. The time of his Rut is approaching, a rare occurrence where male wolf-shifters must physically bond with their chosen mate or face certain insanity and death. It could cost him not only the new life he’s built, but also his battered, scarred heart.

Together, Dex and Liz must search for the information they need before his old nemesis and a rival gang annihilates all they hold dear. But when the simmering chemistry between them boils over into searing hot passion, will they risk losing their hearts to save the ones they love?


Book one Blood Bound didn’t hit it off with me. I wasn’t sure if I was going to try the next installment in the Blood Ravagers series, but I’m glad I did. Liz and Dex won me over.

Blood Freed was funny, exciting, adventures, and action-packed. We are back into the Blood Ravagers MC world. This time the stakes are higher and two unlike people will find what they both have been needing. 

Liz is the free spirit. Her sister thinks she is going to bolt and not commit to the gang as there Oracle. Liz wants to prove to herself and the others that that is not the case. That she’s just been searching for her path, her destiny. 

Dex is a lone wolf shifter who is haunted by his past. He’s got some issues, but when he is told by his president to protect Liz and help on this mission, he will give it his all even though it’s not the best time for him.

This story was exciting, intense, and full of sexual tension. I liked the banter and sexual tension that is broiling; between Liz and Dex. They both have issues and so neither believe in themselves, but both see the good in the other. The author captured their insecurities, fears, and emotions stunningly. I liked their connection and how they become each other’s strength. They complemented each other and you could feel their emotions and bond throughout story. The plot was exhilarating from solving the clues to facing the dangers and watching the characters work together. We are also treated to a few surprises along the way and a set up for the next book.

Blood Freed was a marvelously exhilarating read.

Rated: 4 Stars

  1. […] Check out my review on Blood Freed […]

  2. I usually try to give a series at least two books before I give up on it (unless it is really bad). I’ve read so many books where it is the second book that the series really takes off. I’m glad that worked for you in this series.

    • I agree with you Melanie. I always try to give a series two books and I agree usually it’s the second book that takes the series off. Thank’s for stopping in and check out Blood Freed review.
