Joya Ryan is an international and national bestselling author of several contemporary romances. Some of her most popular series of novels include the “Shattered” series, and the “Sweet Torment” series that have fast become fan favorites. Her first ever-published novel was the 2013 published “Break Me Slowly” in the Shattered series which set her on the path to a very successful writing career. She cites one of her biggest influences as Marina Adair, who writes novels with excellent small town settings full of humor and quirky characters. While Adair is not a contemporary romance writer, Joya has found great nuggets from her writing, particularly in areas to do with style that she has incorporated into her novels. Nonetheless, most of her writing ideas are from different places that she finds herself in. For instance, she first attended a rodeo in Wyoming, and loved it so much that she wrote the “Rancher and the City Girl” bestseller inspired by the experience. She is a mother and wife and currently resides in California with her family of husband, and two children. When she is not reading or writing she loves to flambe, baste, barbecue, cook, bake, or anything that involves food and its preparation. She also loves to dance, though she is a terrible dancer that does not mind unleashing her moves on the public whenever she feels like it.

Joya Ryan’s novels blur the line between deception and trust in interesting BDSM and contemporary romance narratives. Her female characters come from terrible family backgrounds that have left them weary and broken. They hardly have the strength to fight for what they deserve until they meet the male protagonists that provide them with the strength. However, they will typically want more from their male lovers, who will often back off as they have their own issues to sort out too. Nonetheless, even as the female protagonists are seemingly weak, they are driven and smart professionals with high confidence, despite all that they have gone through. Breaking through from the negative influences after finding true love through the domineering tendencies of their lovers, they become even more empowered to overcome their problems. The male protagonists on the other hand are gorgeous and highly sexualized specimens that are the ultimate brooding hero, with the handsomeness and wealth to boot. There is more to them than meets the eye particularly when it comes to commitment, which makes them even more intriguing, as it is almost impossible to tell where the relationship is going. Nevertheless, the mystery of the hero makes for an intense and hot relationship, which will leave the reader swooning.

The lead characters from Joya’s series such as Chloe and Katelyn walk tall and with confidence, only for the façade to be completely shaken when they set their eyes on the handsome protagonists. The likes of Gage and Adam Kincade have the steely eyes and reassuring smile that melts the tough exterior as the leads circle each other in a game of who will blink first. The female leads are best described as characters that have learned not to count on anyone, which has left them scared though strong. Despite their reticence, they are in a constant battle to fit in and become a part of the people they loves and the community they lives in. The swoon worthy male protagonist is a big alpha sexy man that reminds one of a MacGyver character that would make any woman wet their panties. He is in search for love and works hard to become a man that the woman of his dream will love and trust, which makes him so attractive. The heroines in the series are different from those of other similar novels in that they remain warm and loving even with their terrible pasts. They mellow to the emotional and out of control intense love showered upon them, and surrender to the wiles of the alpha who seems to have all that they have been looking for all their lives. With Sexy names such as Kinkade and Gage, the heroes are your multi-millionaire handsome men personified, that have no problem running away with the souls of the women they love. They are controlling and charming yet immediately acknowledge that the seductive and sexy, even if a little bit shy heroines are what they need to complete them.

“Break Me Slowly”, the first novel of the Shattered series of novels is an explosive romantic tale that will have any contemporary romance reader in thrall. The lead in the series is Katelyn Gunn, a graduate student who is almost hit by a car heading to her first day as an assistant teacher. The inexperienced and nervous teacher is shocked to realize it is the gorgeous man behind the wheel who gets her heart racing, and not the near death experience. Adam Kinkade is a powerful and ultra-wealthy distribution mogul in the city, and one of the most handsome men she had ever seen. She is also one of the very few men who incite excitement rather than fear in the young Katelyn. All his life Adam has been getting whatever he set his heart upon and now his sights are set on Katelyn. He is determined to do anything and relentlessly pursues her to possess only to learn that she is the one in control. It is not long before Katelyn learns that Adam too has secrets of his own. But their shared passions transcend all as his seductive hands and controlling tendencies destroys her demons and addiction turns to desire that shatters her sanity in its hot rage.

“Possess Me Slowly”, the second novel of the Shattered series by Joya Ryan is an excellent contemporary romance narrative with one of the most innovative of plots. Megan Riley who has always kept on the good side of being in the right career, right college, and right boyfriend now finds herself in a bind. Her boss requires her to debrief him while her boyfriend happens to be promised to another woman all these years. Desperate to start afresh, she gets a job at one of the swankier New York hotels to get away from it all. But everything changes when a millionaire guest checks into the hotel and asks for more than the expected turn down service. Megan has to make the choice between doing what feels so right yet is so wrong and doing what is right. On his part, Preston Strauss is a confirmed bachelor who will not entertain romance or marriage until his family tells him he needs to find a wife if he is not to be kept out of the family business. After a wild night with the incredibly sexy and sweet Megan, he thinks that maybe marriage is not such a bad idea. He offers Megan a choice that he believes she cannot refuse, but everything suddenly turns so real, even as her past comes back to bite the two lovers, threatening to destroy any chance at having a future together.
