Fun quick read

Sometimes the bad guy needs to pay, but writers always want to take the high road. That doesn't always work and it didn't work for me this time. Loved Jared, Sienna grew on me but she was insecure and whinny to the end. I prefer female characters stronger than this one. But, in for a penny, in for a pound; I will complete the series knowing that at this moment, I don't like the female lead.

I didn't want a story about Jared after the first book. I was wrong. He was so protective with great sex scenes. I liked this story more than Alex's. I think I know who Dane is with and I don't like her but if it turns out like this I'll be good.

Not having read any other book by the author before, I was really impressed with the author's execution of the story and the feels that it gave me even after finishing the book. From the sexy cover to the intriguing synopsis, Rough will leave you wanting for more. At the beginning of the story we get to meet Jared, the very good looking ex-marine whose current job is being a male escort. Though he doesn't care for the money that the job brings, he enjoys the need to control more. Even though he can have just about any women he would like, Jared doesn't do relationships. He stays away from them, but when he is called for a job he can't help but to be protective over his client. Her personality and beauty instantly attract him and he just can't keep himself away from her. When Sienna first contacted her first male escort she thought she was doing the right thing, after breaking up with her ex boyfriend, she wanted to move on, and forget that he even existed. It is when she agreed to meet him again that completely she was surprised to find herself meeting a someone else, Jared. Their first meeting had a rough start, but their chemistry was undeniable, being opposites attracted them to each other. Sienna knows that Jared's job is to court her and make her feel like she is his would, but her fantasy could end up hurting her in the end. But no matter how much she wants to put a distance between them, the more attracted she feels towards him. There are things that they will have to get through if they want to future together, and that could change everything for the both of them. I really enjoyed reading Rough, it was a sexy and quick story that had me reading until the very end. The chemistry between the characters is magnetic and had me rooting for them throughout the story. There are some differences that they have to solve before moving on, but even when they are total opposites they still manage to come back together in the end. You are going to love Jared, he is possessive and protective over Sienna which was both sexy and heartwarming. I do wish there was more action in the story, but it still has a good ending. I would highly recommend reading this book, and any other book by the author. I will most recently be reading more from the author in the future. :) ***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.***

Sundresses and Sunrises This book is a stand-alone, but part of an amazing series I highly recommend you dive into. “Broken hero angst and ruggedly handsome features” - that’s how Sybil Bartel describes your next book boyfriend, Jared Brandt, through Sienna Montclair’s eyes. In Thrust, you got a glimpse of Jared and his wicked ways when he fills in for Alex. In Rough, you get the full picture and what a picture that is. Alpha male at his best, Jared craves control and has zero patience for weak people. Despite her naivete, Sienna is no wimp. With a messed-up family history and trust issues, she won’t make it easy on the soon-to-be-reformed male escort. On the other hand, Jared’s physical and emotional scars get in his way more often they not. I don’t’ do spoilers, so this is as much of the plot as I feel comfortable giving away, but if you enjoy highly sensual, superbly well-written stories, this book is for you. I’m a sucker for multiple POVs and this story is told from Sienna’s and Jared’s perspective. As a writer, I appreciate the difficulty in keeping distinct voices when writing that way, and Ms. Bartel did an excellent job at that. Kudos. Lastly, because it’s my favorite part, bedroom scenes. Well, Jared doesn’t restrain himself to beds, and thank you for that, Mr. Sexy. Let me put it this way: You’ll never prepare eggs or enjoy sunrises the same way after you read this book. Trust me! Some of my favorite quotes: Sienna – “His voice, husky and rough, crawled across my nerves like the sweetest lie life ever dealt.” Jared – “I just want to breathe the same air as you.” Jared – “I’m no good for you. I’ll f*** you up in ways you never imagined. You’re probably better off with a g***mn baller. But I’m selfish enough to try and convince you otherwise.”

Jared Brandt likes to keep things light, no relationships, strings,... none of that crap! He's waltzes in, works his magic on you, leaves you satisfied, collects his reward, and then moves on. Some may find his style a little abrasive, rough at times, but that's what you get when you take this alpha home, and he's sure to make it worth your while. His time in the military made him a hardened man, one with lots of scars that he'd like to stay buried down deep, hence his deal with keeping things emotional free. But he didn't plan for a woman quite like Sienna to come into his world, she is everything he isn't, and she has a hold on him that he has never experienced before... and he knows once he gets her right where he wants her, he'll never want to let her go... and that makes this cocksure alpha nervous for the first time in his life!! Sienna Montclair craves control in her life, wants to live life on her terms, and she knows the minute that Jared walks into her quiet world that he is going to help her find just that... she just hopes her heart will still be intact when he is finished with her! He's her complete opposite, but that is what thrills her the most about him, he can give her something that she has never had before, and also help bring her out of her shell, give her a power she has never known. And once she finds it there is no turning back... This story seriously rocked my world, nobody does sexy quite like Ms. Bartel, her alphas are unlike any other that I have met, each one is as tough as they come, and armed with the skills to weaken the knees of any woman in a one mile radius!! The moment Jared waltzed onto the screen I knew I was in serious trouble, he was everything I like in an alpha character and SO much more!! By far the complete package, the master of sexy, cocky as hell, protective, sweet when he needed to be, domineering and completely dedicated to the women who holds his heart!! I loved every single second of Jared and Sienna's story, they had me feeling the words, and blushing more than a few times!! Highly recommend you read this series, you will not be disappointed, Ms. Bartel's alpha's are sure to satisfy!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
