- Book 2 of Haven Brotherhood
Contemporary Romance, Medical Romance
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 problem 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.
This book is approximately 95,000 words

2.5 quiet stars + 2.5 loud and rumbly stars = 5 spectacular stars for WILD & SWEET!
When Gabrielle Parker has a run in with a thief in her neighborhood, her brother's friend Zeke comes to the rescue. Dr. Zeke Dugan isn't expecting the quiet and shy woman to be related to the kid who they're thinking of letting into the Haven Brotherhood, but he knows as soon as he meets her that she's the one for him. Having suffered from Social Anxiety Disorder for years, Gabe is happy when she's alone and not forced to meet new people, but Zeke doesn't just climb her walls, he's determined to obliterate them. The Brothers aren't men she ever thought she'd associate with, especially given that their late night meetings and questionable going-ons are outside of her black and white world. Will Gabe take the easy way out when she learns the truth behind the Haven Brotherhood?
WILD & SWEET is the second book in the Haven Brotherhood series, and it's just as fabulous as the first! Zeke absolutely killed me - he was so delicious that I couldn't help but fall in love with him. Gabe was an entirely different character. She's completely introverted and scarred from things that have happened in her past. She has a hard time talking to people, making friends, even being around people she doesn't know who could possibly hurt her, but somehow she quickly comes to a comfort level with Zeke she never expected. Their chemistry was barn-burnin' haaaaawt, and their sex scenes legit singed my eReader. Do yourself a favor and pick up every book in this delectable series, STAT…I'll be impatiently waiting for Trevor's story in Claim & Protect!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; some condom use (none after discussion/testing); no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; lite violence, no murder.
