Amelia Jennings fights for a new life. All alone, after losing her brothers and father to the consequences of war, she evades an abusive relationship. She fears military men, dominant men, and especially men who like to fight for a living, just like her ex-boyfriend. As she tries to adapt to her new life, she attempts to avoid her best friend’s brothers, who turn her on in a way she definitely isn’t used to. Menage relationships are common, but these particular men scare her and remind her of the past she is trying to forget. The Haas brothers, Murphy, Waylon, Brody, Ricky are tough, set in their ways, and now interested in their sister’s friend. Amelia is the only woman to get under their skin. She fights them tooth and nail, evades their every attempt at seduction, and makes them want things and feel things they never thought they would. They want her in their bed, and their claiming ownership. Standing in the way of happiness is her past, and one man who vows to get her back.
What Worked For Me:
Everything about this book clicked for me in big ways. Amelia, our heroine, is smart, stubborn and a total sweetheart when she gives in to her feelings for the Haas brothers. She is also damaged and has been abused by an ex, which turns her off of all fighters completely. This makes understanding why the Haas brothers are involved in underground fighting almost impossible for her to accept. The Haas brothers; Murphy, Waylon, Brody, and Ricky are absolutely lickable. Really, I spent majority of the book wanting to eat them up. They are passionate and careful with Amelia and eventually all of them fall ass-over-tea kettle in love with Amelia. They are protectors, but fighting some of their own demons from the war and Amelia heals them, in ways they didn’t imagine they needed healing. Their love was true and passionate and Ms. Dywer did an outstanding job in making sure that each man was his own person, not one unit. They each had their own personalities, strengths, and weaknesses and how they each interacted with Amelia showcased each individual man in his own light. When they all come together…WOW! The combination is a knockout! The plot was entertaining, flowed smoothly, easy to follow along with, and kept me interested the entire time. My heart wept for Amelia as she faced her demons then cheered for her when she accepted the Haas brothers and their love. The ending was perfect with no cliffhangers and the ends were tied up with a pretty pink bow. One of the best books I’ve read this year.
What Didn’t Work For Me:
Everything in this book worked. I have no complaints and after reading this book, I think it’s well worth twice the price than what I paid for it. You get way more than your monies worth.
Would I Recommend This Book: Absolutely, 100% yes, to any and all readers of erotic romance
