Title:  Rough and Tumble, Haven Brotherhood #1
Author:  Rhenna Morgan
Published: February 20, 2017    Carina Press
Genre: Romantic Suspense

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.

Oh what a nice little surprise this turned out to be. This new to me author's work is quite lovely! If you like the feel of a MC book but ever wonder what it would be like if the Brothers were wealthy and well educated while still keeping that 1% vibe--- then you should take a peek at this book. Jace and his life long friend Axel have established the Haven brotherhood. This group of six men have come from poor and at times uncivilized beginnings. They have recognized in each other a need to rise above and do better. Their focus is to support one another, be the family that they never had, and when necessary, right the wrongs being put upon those less fortunate than themselves. They love their mamas, they support organizations that help disadvantaged kids and they live their lives with no regrets.

Lets add in that each of these guys is super hot, super alpha and a whole lot sweet and melty on the inside. Rough & Tumble is Jace and Viv's story. There paths cross on accident but the pull to be together is too strong to deny for long. Both have some HUGE trust issues. Ultimately, love wins the day!

Very well written. Good flow to the story. Great banter among the brothers. Really steamy s3xy times. A bit of suspense thrown in for fun. Loved. Loved. Loved! Looking forward to more.
