Hendrix Caldwell wants nothing more than to revitalize the family bar and tear down every last reminder of his no-good father. But business isn't the only thing on his mind. An explosive encounter with a stranger at a charity masquerade is just the distraction he craves, with no names and no strings attached. For Hendrix, sex is casual, and love is a four-letter word.

Overview

Hendrix Caldwell wants nothing more than to revitalize the family bar and tear down every last reminder of his no-good father. But business isn't the only thing on his mind. An explosive encounter with a stranger at a charity masquerade is just the distraction he craves, with no names and no strings attached. For Hendrix, sex is casual, and love is a four-letter word. His commitment is to his brothers, his bar, and his bike. So why can't he stop thinking about the naughty Cinderella who rocked his world, then left him-and her panties-behind? Olivia Hemmingway knows that fairy tales are for little girls. Drowning in debt and hiding a shameful secret, she won't be saved by a knight in tattooed armor, no matter how mind-blowing their one-night stand may have been. Olivia never expects to meet her masked lover again. But when she takes a job at Hendrix Caldwell's bar, her sexy new boss seems all too familiar. And once the lights go out and the music is turned up, the sparks between them burn hotter than ever . . . Contains mature themes.

Great read, loved the panty tgeme.

I purchased this book based upon reviewers saying this was the best one of the series. If this was the best, I'd hate to read the worst! The characters were one dimensional and I think an essay I wrote in college had more depth than this book- and mine was free! This author might think about taking some composition courses or reading some good authors? I suppose that rubbing her butt activity was intended to be cute - it wasn't. All in all a real waste of money.

Hendrix and Olivia meet at a masquerade ball, have an interlude in a closet and don't know who each other is at the end of the night. Fate steps in because Olivia finds herself in need of a second job and Hendrix finds himself in need of a new waitress. It takes a bit for them to realize who the other one is and when they do realize, things don't go smoothly. Olivia and Hendrix both had a not so great childhood and Olivia still fears her past coming back to bite her. Hendrix fights his new feelings for Olivia and, though she is odd, he does find himself wanting to be around her. Olivia is forced to confront her past and Hendrix really steps up to support her. Both of them struggle to learn how to be in a relationship since both of their pasts weren't really conducive to knowing what a healthy relationship between lovers is like. I did like how Hendrix manned up every step of the way and, even when he would screw up, he would own it and move on. I liked how he went for what he wanted and didn't really give Olivia much of a chance to balk at it. It ended very nicely. Good start to this series.

HENDRIX is the first installment in the contemporary, adult CALDWELL BROTHERS erotic, romance series co-authored by Chelsea Camaron and MJ Fields. This is bar owner and eldest brother Hendrix Caldwell, and social worker Olivia Hemmingway’s story line. Told from dual first person perspectives (Olivia and Hendrix) HENDRIX focuses on the building relationship between Hendrix and Olivia. Olivia is a social worker in need of some extra cash so she ventures into a local Detroit bar where she will soon discover that her new boss and bar owner Hendrix Caldwell is the same man with whom she recently found herself having a one-night stand in a darkened closet at a charity event. What ensues are Hendrix attempts to keep Olivia at a distance, and Olivia’s attempts to go it alone. From their first introductions Olivia’s life has fallen on hard times, and Hendrix is the man who is constantly picking up the pieces of her shattered life. The relationship between Olivia and Hendrix is quick to develop; the attraction is immediate but Hendrix believes Olivia’s craziness leaves something to be desired, and he isn’t the man to settle down or look forward to the future. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense. We are introduced to Hendrix’s brothers Jagger and Morrison who both work at Caldwell’s bar alongside their brother. The world building looks at the brother’s dark and damaged past wherein they buried their mother following a short battle with cancer; and sent their father packing for the very last time. Olivia’s past is mired in betrayal and sexual abuse; it is Hendrix who will stand by her side when she faces down her heartbreaking past. HENDRIX is a quick read; a fast paced story about two people who met under ‘closeted’ circumstances and found one another along the way. The premise is entertaining and fun; the characters are animated and real; the romance is a quick build to a happily ever after. I am looking forward to Morrison and Jagger’s stories.

I really cannot say enough about this book! It had me from page one emotionally and it did not let go. You may cry but oh you will laugh and you will feel while reading this book. It was a perfect combination that in the end will warm your heart and remind you to be something good in a world full of bad...and there is sunshine after the rain and sometimes we find it in the most unlikely places.

My mind was blown after reading Hendrix! My one warning is keeping your Kleenex handy, you will need it. Hendrix Caldwell and brothers has had an awful childhood. His father was physically abusive to them all, but their mother protected them until they were old enough to fight back. Then after their mother dies from cancer, Hendrix and his brothers Morrison and Jagger kick their father from their lives and set about turning their family dive bar into a biker bar. Olivia (Livi) had a rough childhood, split up two parents. She spent school time with her mother and the summers with her dad. Until something horrific changes her for good, Livi changes into a different person, when vows to always be in control and to never allow anything to be taken from her without consent again. Now as she leaves college a fledgling social worker, not even able to keep the utilities of, in her slum apartment. So she was forced to get another job and that is when she spotted a job of a bar tender at the new bar Caldwell's Dive. But I honestly don't think either Livi or Hendrix expected to have the sparks fly between them. But it all comes to a head when someone from the past comes back to haunt Livi; Hendrix is there to protect Livi and helps her through the trauma of her past. When I say this book blew my mind! It truly did! I have honestly never read a book like this and now I need to read the rest of the Series…like right now! I love the Caldwell Brothers, their characters are simply divine! Honestly they are perfect! Even with Jagger and Morrison's womanizing, I honestly can't wait for their stories. The writing is amazing, I found no plot holes and the story is smooth and quite honestly it is so very moreish! With all that being said, I can only give Hendrix one score! 10 out of 10!

I have to say that at first I was a little turned off by Hendrix and his brothers. I have nothing against a bad boy but sometimes I feel like that can skirt a line with thug. Some of the things that he said and thought just wasn’t all that attractive to me (but I know that this … roughness (?) is a popular thing now, especially seen with the uptick in MC stories). Luckily these guys have so many more good qualities that anything else was quickly forgotten. And there was so much here that I liked – the way the leads got together and gave in to their feelings, how the brothers were there for each other and how Olivia became part of that once she got involved with Hendrix, the sweet but not too sweet ending, and there’s even more. Neither Hendrix nor Olivia had it easy and they were definitely letting those past incidents impact their present, keeping them out of relationships. I love that Olivia didn’t let her’s keep her sassy side down though. She’s a hoot, with a lot of sass. Hendrix could get a little too dour, internalizing his pain, but not when faced with her pluck. Once they gave up fighting their attraction they were a riot together. But they were also good about giving the support that each other needed. They managed to take their screwed up situations, and less than stellar first meeting, and turned it into something healthy that worked for them. There were some great hints at what’s to come with the other brothers’ stories and I’m hoping that we can explore their complex family dynamic more. These guys had a tough time of it, which manifested itself in some troubling ways, but I’m sure that they’ll get the kick in the pants they need to get everything straightened out. I’m really looking forward to Morrison’s book at the end of the year (although I think that Jagger’s might be the biggie of the batch). Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

I was intrigued by the premise, and interested in seeing where two strong-minded characters could go. The combination of authors to pen this story promised an intriguing read, and something that just takes a rather mundane set of tropes and makes it work with a unique twist. I like my heroes to have some depth: tattooed and sexist, with a vocabulary limited to profanity doesn’t lend to the depth I wanted. Yeah – bad boys can be hot, but puddles are boring after you’ve spent the energy finding all the reflections. Hendrix had far more to overcome for me to believe or be intrigued in him than he presented at first, and even further on in the story, I didn’t necessarily buy into his character. Matching out this bad boy with a character who comes with her own issues, Olivia is in need of some serious grow up time. She’s a bit of a pushover, with a determination to stand on her own, even if that is unrealistic in the extreme. See, Olivia, to me, was a follower – needing someone to tell her what her next move should be, how to fully grasp onto female empowerment (hint – it’s not a random sexual encounter in a closet with a nameless man) and how to listen to her own inner voices. These two damaged people are meant to come together, against all odds, and find solace, companionship and love in one another. Never have I felt the “you complete me” line was more relevant here, as both characters, to me, were half-formed, using clichés and atmospheric posturing and language to build a person, and one that wasn’t that intriguing. Dropping the F bomb, clueless sexual encounters, misogynistic speech and a history of childhood abuse that is really never dealt with beyond sharing stories just doesn’t build a foundation for me, leaving me unconnected and uncaring about the characters, bored by the feelings of forced connection and emotion, and uncomfortable with the sex as it never felt more connected than the first random encounter. I’d be interested in seeing the authors work independent of this collaboration to see if their styles and ideas bear fruit more tasty in solo work. I received an eArc copy of this title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Lovin' the Caldwell Bros - want a Hendrix of my own! Can't wait for Morroson's story.

This is an awesome story and why not, it has a sexy brooding man that thinks love is not for him. Hendrix Caldwell runs a bar and with the help of his brothers Morrison and Jagger, they keep the place going. Olivia Hemingway works at the hospital and has a past that will tear out your heart. When Livi and Caldwell meet at a masked party, the sparks fly. Neither one can stop thinking about the other. When Livi walks into Hendrix's bar, he feels as though he should protect her. What happens when they figure out who each other is? Will she be able to share her past with him? What will happen with the bar? Oh yeah, don't forget to have the tissues handy because I was crying at the prologue. I loved this one and can't wait to read the next one which is about Morrison. Great job Chelsea and MJ.

Story does not make sense since it starts with both anti-HPV message and safe sex to having unprotected oral in one night stand. Author is stupid and also positions hot guy into liking chubby girls. Yeah right.
