Overview

Ryan Chase left Fairbanks, Alaska, when she was 21 years old to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Somewhere along the way her dreams of stardom crashed and burned, along with her life.

Thirteen years later she is forced to return to Fairbanks because her unforgiving and emotionally-distant father has suddenly died. Ryan seizes the opportunity to not only escape her abusive husband but to be able to attend her best friend's wedding. What could go wrong? It's only Fairbanks, Alaska...
While wishing she was anywhere but her father's funeral and wake, Ryan is struck senseless by a stunning, drop-dead gorgeous man. Her thoughts turn carnal and she desperately wants to know him in every way-and position-possible. There's only one problem...

He's the devil's spawn.
He's the one who marked her for life.
He's the kid she used to baby-sit.
And he's hotter than hell!

Shea Michaels has loved Ryan Chase for most of his life. After surviving an unspeakable childhood, he became a man of whom she could be proud of...if she ever came back.
Now that she's returned, Shea pursues her with a vengeance, undaunted by the thirteen year age difference that Ryan uses as the shield between them.

Confusion, guilt and lust bombard Ryan as she battles the memories of the little boy she used to know while still being drawn to the heart-stopping man he has become.

Review Of Bite & Release By Cory Cyr From the second I heard of this book I knew I had to read it. From the first paragraph I was hooked. Cory knows how to write a story that is not only HOT but impossible to put down. I loved the fact that Cory made Ryan older than Shea. A lot of stories usually have the man as the older more dominate character. It was such a nice change of pace for the older woman to not hold the power per se but to feel like she was still desirable at thirty four to a younger man of twenty one. I am now looking forward to reading Cory's next book Reviving Haven (out July 31, 2014) which has the same older woman younger man dynamic. Ryan Chase wants to chase her dream of becoming an actress so at twenty one she leaves home for New York in hopes of becoming a star. All that glitters is not gold for Ryan and thirteen years later she not only comes home for her father's funeral and her best friend's wedding but to escape her abusive husband and plan her next move. Upon her return Ryan spies a tall HOT guy who she would like nothing better than to get in her bed that is until she comes to realize it is Shea the little boy she used to babysit. Andrew Seamus "Shea" Michaels knew he wanted to marry Ryan since he was eight years old. Pretty much since the day he was born Shea has had to deal with an abusive drunken father. His only reprieve from the abuse came from spending time with Ryan's dad Riley, working in his garage. When Ryan left, Shea refused to go by that nick name that she had given him. After spiraling out of control for a few years Andrew decides to become the type of man that Ryan can be proud of. Nothing could prepare Andrew for the effect Ryan has on him with her return. Both Ryan and Shea harbor their own dark secrets. Ryan is hiding the fact that she is married to a guy named Garrison and is hiding out while Shea is hiding the extent of his father's abuse. The instant chemistry of grown up Shea and Ryan is undeniable to almost everyone. Shea sets out to claim Ryan as his one and only but Ryan is having a hard time separating Shea the little boy with Shea the man.  I am a Cory Cyr fan for life. There is so, so much I want to say about the struggles and obstacles these two characters go through but I feel it would ruin the story for everyone. Cory wrote such an AMAZING story, in my opinion. Her characters are believable and can draw real emotions from the reader. Cory doesn't sugar coat the bad things that happen to Shea and Ryan which makes for a more realistic story. I look forward to reading more books by Cory Cyr. On a scale from 1-10 I give Bite & Release a HUGE 20. This book packed such a punch (no pun intended) that my scale could not hold it....lol. I encourage everyone adult 18+ to run out and pick a copy of Bite & Release. If you are looking for a story with bite, HOT love story, conflict, and everything in between then you NEED to run and pick up this book. Open up your heart and let Shea and Ryan show you that love really can conquer all. Don't forget to look out for Reviving Haven out July 31, 2014.

A childs love, to a man's forever! That is what Ryan meant to Shea!! He made a promise to Ryan's dad when he was 8 years old and 13 years later he is determined to see that promise through! Ryan has come back home after 13 years, running from danger and disappointments, can she find a new start? I loved Shea, he was strong, persistent and down right sweet! This book was an emotional roller coaster at times but I loved it! Don't miss out on this fabulous love story! Find out id Shea and Ryan find their happily ever after or will everything come crashing down around them?

Older woman, younger man. Extreme attraction!  Secrets, and anguish. This book rocked. This was an attention holder for sure. A must read for all romance lovers. Although set in Alaska, you won't get cold with all the heat in the pages of this story. I can't wait to read more from this author!

I have been seeing the teasers for this book and I purchased it a few weeks ago.  I finally got around to reading it and all I can say is OH MY SHEA!   Ryan runs away from Alaska to pursue her dream of becoming actress and She tries her luck in New York.  After sometime, she returns home to escape her problems only to be faced with the boy turned hot man candy, Shea. I was hesitant at first to read this book because the Ryan is 13 yrs older than Shea.  I find it strange at first, but I find this book to be one of my favorite books that I have read in my entire life.   It is passionate, emotional, and full of enough angst/drama to complete a story without overdoing it.     Ryan is tough and avoids her problems like most of us do, to be honest.  She is afraid and that was refreshing to see.  Most female leads are either damsel in distress or stronger than their men.  Ryan is the happy in between, not too strong that she overpowers the male character, but shows a weakness in her fears which made her so relatable to anyone reading this book. Shea......I don't know who the author was thinking of when she created him, but please clone him and ship him to me ASAP!  HE is hotter than hell and a sexy MotherF&^%er!  You feel his love for Ryan from the first page and you want to protect him from any further pain.   His story is a sad and tragic one, one that many have personally experienced.    Cory has done a beautiful job in her first book and I can not wait to read more from her.

Shea is the type of man I would want in my life - provided I was the one he was in love with. Physically, he is the exact type of man that I would be attracted to. Tall, dark and extremely f@@kable were her words and I could not agree more. Shea's been biding his time since the love of his life (Ryan-a girl) moved away when he saw 8. Mind you, she was an adult and left Alaska for New York to pursue an acting career. So, there's a 13 year age difference, so what you say. Well...she also used to babysit him and is having one heck of a difficult time getting past that hurdle in her head. I don't blame her. I think I would have a difficult time if little Robbie was interested in me today, but I digress. The chemistry between the two is obvious and practically jumps off of the page. It doesn't hurt that they are both extremely attractive. I enjoyed the charcacters and wish they lived in my neighborhood. Shea and Ryan really do belong together and go through several unlikely obstacles to get to their HEA, but it does happen. If you're on the fence, do yourself a favor and pick it up. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

To fall in love with your babysitter and to be reunited when you are adults. Shea and Ryan have both had a rough life but together it a love worth fighting for . A younger man in love with an older woman makes this book hot! Great romance book with some suspence.

Wow! I am so glad I stumbled upon this book! I will definitely be looking for more amazing books to come from this author. I give this one 4.5 Stars. Such a great story with so many twists and turns that leave you shell shocked. My jaw dropped several times and I could not put this one down. Ryan Chase left Fairbanks, Alaska and headed for New York looking to make it big as an actress. When she moved on with big dreams she didn't know that she left an 8 year old boy crushed and heartbroken. Andrew "Shea" Michaels has loved Ryan for as long as he can remember. The one person who showed him love that he never knew from his abusive father and mental ill mother was his babysitter Ryan. 13 years later Ryan is back in Fairbanks to bury her estranged father. Leaving Alaska for her dreams left her relationship with her father broken, and after years of disappointment with her failing acting career Ryan could not bear the shame to return to an "I told you so". There is something else the draws Ryan back to her home town, an abusive husband who she is trying to escape from. When Ryan's best friend Trina (AKA Shea's sister) picks her up to take her to the funeral Ryan notices a handsome stranger that seems vaguely familiar to her. What she doesn't realize is its the boy she left behind. Thirteen years have passed and the boy she remembers is now a gorgeous 21 year old man and she's struggling with feelings she can't explain. There are surprises at every turn and shocks that could change everything for these two. Hold on for this roller coaster of emotion. Loved this stand alone book. Grab it up and enjoy. Watch for great things to come from this author, I know I will be.

OH Shea , Shea, Shea… What I would do with you! This book was just plain amazing to me! It had its up and down and even a little OH NO THEY DIDN’T moments!  Ryan left home , to become an actress but all she got was an abusive husband who rather try to beat her and try to get her into porn than love her and cherish her. So when her father dies she run, and runs fast back to the one place she doesn’t want to go. But the one place she knows he will never find her Alaska! But what she doesn’t expect is to find the 8yr old next door neighbor boy all grown up and all tall, dark and do-able. Can she look past the age difference? Can Shea show her how much she means to him? And what happens when the past comes back to haunt them all? Confessions of a Booklovinjunkie

This was an amazing story! I couldn't help falling for Shea and also understanding Ryan's struggle. I loved that the female character was a little older and boy did she have some HOT sex with her man! Cory did an awesome job and I can't wait to see what she has next!!
