Rough & Tumble (The Haven Brotherhood, #1) by Rhenna Morgan (Book Review)


4.5 of 5

Adult Romance/”Motorcycle” Club Romance (Overall – Club Romance)

ARC provided for an honest review through NetGalley.

Jace Kennedy is a successful businessman and lives for the challenge. He gets what he wants, right when he wants it. When Vivienne Moore walks into his club to rescue her yet again drunk sister, he lays eyes on her and knows that he wants her.

Vivienne is doing all that she can to make a better life for herself. Coming from nothing, she puts up many fronts to try and succeed in her event planning business. When she encounters the handsome and cunning owner of a local nightclub, Jace, she realizes she is in for a ride. His sight is set on her. She has a lot to learn from Jace, if only she can let her hair down.

Let me start and say, I was very unsure of this book at first. The beginning club scene and alpha male attitude didn’t sit right BUT then it happened…BAM…it all came together and I could NOT put this book down! Personally, I don’t love all alpha males because sometimes it’s just too “caveman” for me but all of that changed when I started to see Jace for who he was and what his true intentions were. He is so much more that a sex driven club owner. He is complex and has a side that I just can’t get enough of. To my surprise… I LOVED this book.

Vivienne started off the same. She is obviously not comfortable with herself and it’s very apparent. Jace is exactly what she needs to grow and learn to let go…if she allows him too. She was a mystery for me, I think having more backstory on her life growing up would have allowed me to connect with her quicker but I still really enjoyed her character, especially next to Jace.

Once getting past the “introductions” I was able to really enjoy the ride this book provides. There are twists and turns that kept me on the edge of me seat!

The boys of “The Haven Brotherhood” appear to be alpha males, hot and sexy as hell. They are family. Seeing all of them interact together and with Vivienne makes me so excited for what is to come in the next books.

  2. […] April 10, 2017April 10, 2017 Kelly 4 of 5 Adult Romance ARC provided for an honest review through NetGalley. Zeke Dugan is a brother in the Haven Brotherhood. He is also a trauma doctor who has no problem using his skills to help and protect his family/brothers. He is always on call and drops everything when a brother is in need. When he meets a prospect’s sister, he can take his eyes off of her. The beautiful, smart and introverted woman is exactly what he wants. Gabriella “Gabe” keeps to herself. She enjoys her job as a mechanic and taking photos on her free time. She doesn’t enjoy social situations, they send her into panic attacks. After being assaulted in a robbery while checking on her neighbor’s house, she doesn’t want to go to the hospital, luckily her brother’s friend, Zeke, comes to the rescue. Zeke sets her on fire. He is handsome, smart and -HELLO- a doctor! I really enjoyed the romance and chemistry between Zeke and Gabe. This book focuses on their relationship and Gabe overcoming her anxiety. Seeing Gabe grow, learn about herself and how to handle her anxiety is essential to this successful story and makes it SO CAPTIVATING. I was rooting for her from the beginning to the very end! Hello Zeke! Seriously…hot and sweet doctor…SOLD! But really, I loved his character and I loved how he interacts with Gabe. Seeing him push her to grow and overcome was so cute. Overall this book was really good! I enjoyed the main characters (and can’t wait for the other brother’s books!) and the plot…it was steady and kept me guessing! On Amazon NOW. Did you read the first book in this series, Rough & Tumble!? NO!? You should. It’s fantastic and gets the reader ready for this book. Check out my review for Rough & Tumble HERE. […]
