In the event that you haven’t begun to peruse one of Rhenna Morgan’s titles in her fresh off the press new saga The Haven Brotherhood, you ought to before June 12, 2017. Since the following portion is ablaze… goodness, the sparks between Trevor and Natalie is all that as well.

Natalie lived the high life. Hitched and with one youngster, a mother who reveres her and her son. In any case, all that changed with a just one slap in the face. Presently she’s just keen on making a new beginning. But her ex-declines to release the past.

Trevor Raines put stock in the Haven Brotherhood maxim. “Live hard, f*ck harder and take after just their own particular principles”. In any case, don’t miss the point, Trevor and his sibling don’t twist the standards just to help themselves. Nope, they utilize it to help other people in need.

Trevor’s fascination for Natalie takes him into her reality. Trevor will successfully help Natalie and her child from any further mischief from her ex.

Claim and Protects fits ideal in with alternate titles in this series. The Haven Brotherhood I could see myself perusing more than once. Furthermore, since this three-book arrangement is over. I can hardly wait to read what Rhenna Morgan write about next.

I would prescribe this book to all peruse, who like the contemporary sentiment, and solid plotline and the set of characters that makes The Haven Brotherhood an unquestionable requirement read.

Danger

Tori Cox, a talented and sought-after musician, heads back to her roots to a small southwest town in Arizona as she flees an abusive relationship. When she arrives she witnesses the execution of a federal agent by the head of the Jimenez Cartel. The drug cartel kingpin orders his men to kill Tori before she can testify.

Desire

He sets out to protect her, but soon protecting her isn’t enough. The fire between them makes him want her in a way that he’s never wanted another woman, despite his wounded heart.

Death

Diego Montego Jimenez will do everything in his power to kill Tori, the young American woman, who threatens his business and family. No one lives to testify against the Jimenez Cartel.

Hidden Prey written by Cheyenne McCray is book #1 in her Deadly Intent series. Based on a thrilling tale of being at the wrong place at the wrong time, and redemption. Tori was coming home after escaping from a relationship based on control. But, escape for Tori comes with a price. After witnessing a murder of which she would later learn of a Federal agent. Tori must go into hiding to stay alive.

Landon has his own cross to bear when he learns that the witness he is to protect is the sister of a man worked for the same cartel out to silence her.

The suspense of the storytelling couldn’t touch the burning attraction that Landon ignites in Tori. I would recommend this story to any reader who likes suspense with a well-scripted plot-line.

He Will Always Bear the Scars

Undercover cop Clay Navarro left the Sultans biker gang a changed man. Its ringleaders may be awaiting trial, but he wears the memory of every brutal act he was forced to commit tattooed across his skin. He doesn’t have space in his messed-up life for anything gentle—not now, maybe not ever.

Dr. Georgette Hadley is drawn to the damaged stranger’s pain, intimidated but intrigued by the warmth that lies beneath Clay’s frightening exterior. But when the Sultans return looking for revenge, she finds herself drawn into the dirty underbelly of a life forged in violence…that not even her touch may be able to heal.

By Her Touch was an okay read. The character was well developed to put that you could see what drove them. However, the chemistry between Clay and Georgette was non-existing. The story dragged on way too long. I figured out who betrayed Clay to the Sultans at the beginning. So, when the big reveal happened it was meh.
This would be the first title I ever read by this author and so I can’t rightfully say if this was one of her best or not. I can say that this story could be read as a stand along and that this book would be suited towards readers who likes mystery along with light-hearted romance.

No one charters the depths of passion on the high seas like New York Times bestselling author Cherry Adair

DESIRE RUNS DEEP

Somewhere off the coast of Greece, a king’s ransom in gold, emeralds, and silver coins lies waiting at the bottom of the sea. Finding this ancient treasure would be a dream come true for marine archeologist Calista West. But that’s not why she’s here. She didn’t climb aboard Jonah Cutter’s magnificent yacht seeking fortune or fame. She’s come for revenge—against the sexiest, most seductive, modern-day pirate she’s ever encountered…

Like his famous half-brothers, Jonah is a master of salvaging ships—and driving women mad with his movie-star looks and raw animal magnetism. Tall, dark, and devastating, he manages to make Callie forget her mission. Every moment they share under the hot Mediterranean sun is an erotically-charged adventure neither can resist. But when Callie discovers what he’s really after—the lost city of Atlantis—is it too late to change the course of her heart…or go all in with the lover of her dreams?

Stormchaser is book #4 in Cherry Adair’s Cutter Cay series. Since this will be my first book in this series. I did feel lost coming in the middle of this series. But after reading this book, I feel that I must read the other titles in this series. To get a better understanding on the Cutter crew.

I can say I have read other books by Cherry Adair and she never lost her touch. She still captivated readers by the great plots. However, lost her way a bit on the character development. But, by the middle of the story, she finds her stride.

Stormchaser an action-packed adventure, and a lost city wanting to be explored.

Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if Prince—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade.

However, they both like to live above their means which leaves Jane in the whole to pay their debts.

Until one day she meets her Prince. Or in this case businessman Brock Wellington. Brock has his own issues. With the major issue being. He has a hard time saying “No”. It might be easy for you or me to say no. But the last time Brock said no was to his father. Then his father and mother both died in a plane crash. When he almost loses his grandfather, he is deftly afraid to deny his grandfather anything.

If you need to relieve stress or just need to get away from it all. The Bachelor Auction would have you laughing in no time.

Characters: Zeke, Gabrielle

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs. 

Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problems leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.

Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn’t always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.

Zeke doesn’t play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he’s exactly what she needs in her life. He’ll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.

When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk.

Coming off her successfully series “Eden” Rhenna Morgan brings us a tale of men who has lived hard and follow only their own rules. Six men who by law aren’t brothers but who chose to become family.

In Wild and Sweet the second book in the Haven Brotherhood. We are introduced to Dr. Zeke Dugan who has sworn an oath to heal people. But by no means does that mean he is not willing to do what is necessary to protect the ones he calls family.

Lacking social skills to intro act with others, especially men, Gabrielle Parker was happiest with a wrench in her hand. But, when a robbery takes place at her neighbors whose home she was taken care of. It forces Gabrielle out of her comfort zone and into the path of a strong personality type like Zeke.

What made this story so great was the characters of Zeke and Gabrielle. They both had flaws but was determined to overcome them. Or I should say Zeke was Gabrielle not so much until she almost loses the life that she thought would never be hers.

Wild and Sweet was fast paced and well developed just like the first book in the series. It can be read as a stand-alone. However, to get the full back story of these men, starting at the beginning would be advised.

Characters: Jace, Vivienne

Golden starGolden starGolden starGolden starGolden star


Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs. 

A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore’s hidden wild side and knows she’s his perfect match, if only he can break it free. He will have her. One way or another.

Vivienne’s determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she’s built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv’s plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club’s clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.

Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society’s walk and talk society’s talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He’s proud of who he is and where he came from, and he’ll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.

I don’t normally hand out advice. This one time… I must. Don’t start Rough & Tumble if you are exhausted, sleep deprived or hung over. If you’re in any of these states, then you might find this book boring. Then you would seriously hate yourself for missing an excellent read.

The title alone told you what you were in for. You would be introduced to two strong and determined characters. When describing Jace, the phrase “Don’t judge the book by its cover” came to mind. That was so true. Jace who was trying to overcome his past, but it’s hard to do when you have an enemy in a place of authority. But Jace didn’t let that stop him from succeeding and he does it in style.

Now with Vivienne, the words that best described this character are loyal, door mat, and determined. Even though loyal and door mat went hand in hand. Especially when it involved her sister. Her sister was a total mess and it was again Vivienne who had to basically cater to her needs.

The story was a tale of perseverance and determination. A nice steady pace with well-developed characters and secondary characters that you will fall in love with.

Rough & Tumble was an excellent introduction to Rhenna Morgan’s Haven Brotherhood series.
