Intriguing, steamy and oh so good! With the second book in The Rockwell Legacy, we get down and dirty with the family superstar! Griffin is heading home after unexpected retiring at the top of his game in motocross. His family has no clue why he's given up the sport he loves and excels at, and he's not so sure he's ready to reveal his secret just yet. When he meets Serena Riggs, he's instantly drawn to her. They don't intend to start a relationship, but time together turns out to be a lot of fun ... and flirting abounds! Will they be able to outrun the danger surrounding them to find their happily ever after? Loved Griff's story! It's exciting, well developed and the air of mystery brings so much to the story line. Looking forward to more! Griffin Rockwell left home years ago and excelled at everything he set out to do. Now he's retiring for a reason no one knows about and coming home to lie low for awhile. When his brother Jake asks him for a favor, he can't resist ... even if it's putting him in close proximity to the sassy bartender that's caught his eye! Serena Riggs is in town on a mission. She's searching for her father who disappeared years ago. Her research has led her here to this small town where she believes he passed through just before he was never heard from again. Can she find the answers she's been looking for? And will Griffin succeed in protecting her from the danger that seems to have come knocking?

If you haven't read anything from this author you are missing out. This is a new sexy series you don't want to miss. Griffin Rockwell has returned to Rocky Point Lodge after suddenly retiring from his beloved Motocross. He's not explaining why, other than he's home to help with the lodge and his father. Serena Riggs came to Rocky Point looking for her father. She's asking questions and someone doesn't like it. She's been bartending at Griffin's brothers bar. Jake is going out of town and talks Griffin into being her bodyguard. Serena has always taken care of herself but when danger comes closer, she's glad Griffin is there. There is a definite sexual attraction between them, but could it lead to more? I received an eARc from the author for a honest review.

Serena and Griffin have secrets. Serena's secrets brought her to Rocky Peak from San Francisco. While Griffin's secrets brought him back home. Jake, Griffin's brother, is the only one who knows her secret as he gave her a job when she first came to town. When he has to go out of town, Jake leaves Serena in charge of the bar but asks Griffin to watch over her as she has received threats. Jake didn't relay her story, just that Serena may be in trouble. Griffin, newly retired from pro-motor cross racing, doesn't know what to do with his life. He came back to help renovate the lodge--hoping to figure out what he's going to do with the rest of his life. The offer to be Serena's bodyguard couldn't come at a better time. It gives him a chance to be "helpful", while spending time with the captivating bartender. As they work together to figure out who's threatening Serena, secrets are revealed with possible deadly results. This is the second novel in the Rockwell series. It can be read as a stand alone, but I liked knowing the background from book one while reading book two. I honestly have to say this is a first for me. I usually have a favorite story when reading a series, but with this series it's not true. I absolutely LOVED Griffin and Serena as much as Kai and Nicole!!! I loved how, even though the Rockwell's have their difficulties, they always have each other's backs. They embrace the truth and power through. I also enjoyed Griffin's realization that his disability could actually help others. I also rooted for Marley and the others held back by fear of retaliation. I adore Grace's artistic, childlike qualities. She and Serena became fast friends. Serena and Griffin were a perfect match! I can't wait to find out how the rest of the family's stories unfold. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Love this series and the Rockwell Family! Griffin Rockwell left Rocky Peak Lodge to pursue a career in motor cross. When he unexpectedly retires at the height of his career, he returns home to help with the Lodge. When his brother convinces him to play bodyguard for his new employee, Griffin takes the job seriously. Serena Riggs is searching for answers, but what she doesn’t expect is to be intrigued by her new body guard. Griffin and Serena are two people searching for their path, but don’t realize it. Their romance is steamy and their interactions are fun. This was another great read by Jennifer Bernard. She has a way with both characters and a story that will draw you in and keep you giggling. The Rockwell family is full of heart and they love each other unconditionally, and that doesn’t just include those born into the family. They will do anything for their family. This is the second book in the series, but you won’t be lost if you start with it. You will, however, miss more antics and interactions of the Rockwell family, and you really don’t want to miss a minute of this family. I can’t wait for the next one… Isabelle’s story should make for another rollicking story! #TheRogue #TheRockwellLegacy #JenniferBernard

Griffin has retired early from his motocross profession at the top of career, he has left with a big secret. He has now returned home to continue and rebuild the Rockwell Legacy. Serena has her own secret too. She is new to town and is snooping around on the disappearance of her father. When she has threats on her life, Griffin has agreed to be her bodyguard. Soon sparks will fly will between them. This is a fast paced story with plenty of secrets and intrigue that will keep you turning the pages. Griffin is very protective of Serena. They both help each other through out the story in bringing the past forward. I highly recommend this book. This is the second book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. I am loving the Rockwell family!!

The Rogue is the second book in Jennifer Bernard’s The Rockwell Legacy series and another winner. The book captures you from the first page and keeps you turning the pages to the very end. This story is about Griffin Rockwell who is home just after retiring from motor cross racing with a secret he is afraid to tell his family. He is quickly paired up with Serena by his brother to watch over her. They hit it off and the rest is history. This book has it all- sexy good guys, danger, and hot romance. I highly recommend this book and series. You won’t be disappointed.

This is the story of Griffin and Serena. Griffin is a hot motocross racer who announced his retirement for reasons he is keeping to himself. Serena is a beautiful redheaded barmaid/artist. The second book of the Rockwell Legacy brings us back to Rocky Peak. There are some twists and turns as we learn more about the quirky Rockwell's. Jennifer writes well developed characters that show their human vulnerabilities with a touch of humor. I first read Jennifer Bernard book several years ago, I have now read all up to this. She has never disappointed me yet and won't you either! I received an advance copy from the author in exchange for my open and honest opinion.

WOW!! I loved reading The Rogue by Jennifer Bernard, book two in her brand new series, The Rockwell Legacy. Griffin Rockwell has shocked his family & the sports world when while he’s on top of the motocross world, he suddenly retires. He has a secret which he doesn’t want the world to know and it is because of the secret he is retiring. He came home to help get the family business updated & back on track, or at least that is what he is telling everyone. Griffin might come across as arrogant but he is actually broken and hurting from not only his life today, but also from his childhood. He has so many layers that made it easy to fall in love with him. Serena Riggs took a job at the Last Chance Pub as a way to look for clues about the disappearance of her father many years ago in the area. She escaped a bad situation in San Francisco but she thinks might have a stalker following her when she begins getting threatening notes. As a favor for his brother Jake, her boss, Griffin becomes her bodyguard and he takes the role seriously. Griffin & Serena are an amazing couple. From the minute they meet, their passion is clear. They both came across as tough, independent, and a little closed-off to the rest of the world but both are hiding some huge secrets along with a big amount of vulnerability. I also appreciated the way she handled the side story regarding the young men who were being abused over the years by their coach & the strength it took to come forward. Ms. Bernard has done it again! She wrote an amazing and fantastic must read book. This story is filled with sexual chemistry, fun dialogue, and endearing characters; as well as some mystery. I highly recommend this book to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

I loved the first book in this series and I will admit that The Rogue, the second book about the Rockwell family, is even better. (Please don’t tell Kai, from The Rebel; I really loved his story, too!) Griffin Rockwell’s story grabbed my heart right from the start. He comes across as brash and daring, when he really is broken and hurting from not only life today, but his childhood, too. Such a deep, deep character; it was so easy to fall in love with him. Except for Serena, Griff’s brother Jake’s bartender. Griff and Serena met at the end of The Rebel and trust me, it was a definite ‘meet-let the sparks fly’, rather than a ‘meet-cute’. Let’s say they sizzled from the start, with much attitude about the ‘heat’ never happening between them. (Yeah, that worked out for them!) Both Griffin and Serena have so much going on in their lives, the least of which is Serena has a stalker. She is also looking for her many-years-missing father and it seems that someone may not want that to surface. Griffin has just retired from motocross racing and is keeping his own secrets from his family and the world. The Blackwells are a hoot. Griff’s brothers and sisters are nosey and noisy, funny and loving, and the biggest pains in his behind…but their bond is unshakeable and the author truly makes that come through in the story. Loved the family dynamics, loved the underlying intrigue, and ROFL with the family! Serena and Griff are SO good together, even when they try so hard to not be. Loved The Rogue, it is a standalone story, but really loved the first in this new series, too. I just finished reading Griff’s and Serena’s story and can’t wait for the next book…a no-pressure note to the author, but could you hurry, please?

The Rogue is the second book in Jennifer Bernard’s The Rockwell Legacy series. I enjoyed Griffin and Serena’s story. Griffin was forced to retire from the sport he loved – Motorcross. He returned to Rocky Peak to surround himself with family and learn to deal with his new life. Serena on the other hand is searching for answers. She’s doing all she can to locate her father. On top of that, both of them are dealing with issues from their pasts. The Rogue is full of twists and turns as Griffin deals with his health ailment along with setting a wrong from high school into a right while Serena uncovers her father’s past. I highly recommend reading The Rogue along with the first book in the series, The Rebel. This is a standalone book. I look forward to the next book in the series. I received an advanced copy of The Rogue. I voluntarily chose to read and review it and this is my honest review.

I absolutely love Griffin & Serena! Their story is just so wonderful. Griffin is amazing, sexy, strong, smart and loves his family. He is a top motocross racer who suddenly decides to retire and move back to Rocky Peak. Even though he is older for a racer, he is still at the top of his game. No one knows why he would decide to stop racing. His brother Jake asks him to be Serena's body guard because she is having some problems. Serena has been bartending for Jake but she is actually an artist. Many secrets and things about her past, her father, Griffin's father and mother are revealed in this wonderful and and intriguing story about two people who were a little lost until they find each other and a love so big it could not be denied. I am loving this Rockwell series so much! It was great to get more of Kai and Nicole, Max the patriarch of the family and the other Rockwell siblings. This is a funny loud family but when the chips are down you want them in your corner!

The Rockwell Legacy continues in this fantastic book that gives us Griffin Rockwell's story. His family doesn't understand why Griffin has decided to walk away from his successful motocross career and he has no intention of telling them the real reason. Serena Riggs works for his brother and Griffin knows she has secrets too. When it becomes clear Serena is in danger Griffin steps in to act as her bodyguard. Spending all their time together makes it impossible to ignore the attraction between them. When her secret comes out will they lose what they've just found together? Great story that is very well written with some pretty amazing characters. I highly recommend it.
