Book 1 of The Haven Brotherhood
Contemporary Romance

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'm in LOVE with ROUGH & TUMBLE so hard!

Vivienne Moore is pissed when she has to rescue her sister Callie AGAIN after another drunken binge. At the bar, she meets the ridiculously sexy owner Jace Kennedy getting stitched up from a knife wound. Jace's club has some serious PR issues and hiring Viv as an event planner will be the perfect way to get to know the fiery woman he senses beneath that buttoned up exterior.

Viv tries her hardest to stay professional when it comes to Jace, but it's like trying to tame a tornado, so for once she's decided to let down her guard and let him in. It turns out there's way more to Jace than meets the eye, and when he brings her to Haven, for the first time Viv feels like she has a family to call her own. But with a nasty politician bent on setting old scores with Jace, Viv is pulled into the crosshairs with only one way out…alongside the men of Haven.

What a yummy read! In the first of The Haven Brotherhood series, this group of smart, sexy and loyal guys have developed their interests into a conglomerate of sorts, from night clubs to tech and more. They're all supportive and consider each other brothers, and it had the feel of a MC book at times. While the concept of Haven was fabulous, it did kind of have a weird, middle school blood brothers vibe about it, particularly with the whole dog tag thing. Even with that juvenile bit of bonding, the book was really a fun and sexy story. Viv and Jace had great chemistry, and the sex scenes were delicious. I liked that Ms. Morgan didn't shy away from Callie's addiction issues and faced them head-on. I can't wait for more in The Haven Brotherhood series!

Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; some condom use (with discussion); no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; some violence/murder.
