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. 

This book is approximately 105,000 words 

The author Rhenna Morgan starts this new Haven Brotherhood series with a dramatic opening exciting this reader with the introduction of the very hot and sexy Jace Kennedy along with his equally sexy brothers. Not to leave the women out, Vivienne created a strong memorable leading lady who though very strong willed has a hidden soft heart.

Vivienne starts off as a power house in a suit and I enjoyed Jace's influence on loosening her up as the story advances. How the author creates this scenario is priceless and I know the readers will enjoy this book as much as I did. There are times in the book that I felt the author needed to expand on Vivienne's tough facade in certain situations but it doesn't distract from the storyline.

Jace's character felt just about right in his toughness, mystic and his vulnerability. He added the push needed to open up Vivienne's personality and the strength for her to deal with her sister.

The storyline for me has a feeling of a MC genre but more complex and exciting. There is still some hidden mystery for me as to what these men are truly involved in but I love how close their family is and how they fight to keep it sacred. I look forward to the author expanding this series and allowing the reader to feel the richness of these men and the women they come to love. I also hope that a book on redemption for Vivienne's sister Callie will be part of this series. I think there is a worthy story behind her screw ups.

I give this 4 STARS and look forward to more books to this series.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
