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.

Rough & Tumble (The Haven Brotherhood, #1)Rough & Tumble by Rhenna Morgan

Six men, checked pasts, drawn together to help make each other succeed and reach the their full potential…what they become is a family unlike any other.

Jace Kennedy is a strong business man that will bend the rules if it benefits his “Haven Brotherhood” family.

Jace is having trouble with a local drug dealer that has been bringing Dallas Police Department into his clubs and business dealings. On top of that, Paul Renner, a sleeze-ball politician is causing all kinds of media backlash, attacking Kennedy’s business dealings for political gain. To help present a better public appearance, Jace decides to hire Vivienne Moore (event planner) and the woman he can’t get out of his head. He met Vivienne when she rescued her sister from a drunken night at one of his clubs.

Sexual tension through-the-roof, Viv and Jace play at a dance where you know either Viv will be drawn into Jace’s world or she’ll run. Jace will do everything in his power to keep Viv forever.

I have to be honest, the uber alpha, bad boy is getting a little old...UNTIL NOW! Morgan has created a band of six uber alpha, extraordinarily sexy men with checkered pasts but with true HEARTS! You heard me right, Heart. They aren't just tough guys, they will do anything to protect those they love and they aren't afraid to wear that love on their sleeve. I found what I've been missing in all those other stories...you can be tough, you can be a bad ass but you still need to be looking for an equal partnership with the woman that becomes your life (well, that is what i need to be happy with the bad boy character)...and boy does Morgan excel at bring these characters to life. I honestly gobbled up Jace's and Viv's story and can't wait to delve deeper into the Haven Brotherhood family.

I received this ARC copy of Rough & Tumble from Carina Press in exchange for a honest and voluntary review. This book is set for publication Feb 1, 2017.
