Brody by Mandy Harbin Blog Tour

Brody “Brutus” Jackson isn’t your average small-town mechanic. The shop where he spends his days doubles as the headquarters for the mercenary group he works with. They jokingly call themselves the Bang Shift because the government contracts they take are the less savory ones, and they’re all just shady enough to do what’s necessary to get the jobs done. As far as Brody’s concerned, it’s the perfect arrangement for a man with no memory of his past, and no hope for the future.

Under FBI protection, Alexandria Collins and her son have been in hiding for ten years. When it’s time to move again, her piece of crap car breaks down and the man giving her a tow is the biggest, hottest guy she’s ever seen. She is determined to ignore the need her long-neglected body hungers for. After all, the last man she showed interest in put a gun to her head.

Brody thinks the skittish Xan is sexy as hell, but it’s not her hot body that has him rocked to his core. He knows her from somewhere, and in his line of work, that’s a dangerous thing. Following orders have never been this hard, but when he finds out she’s his next assignment, he will protect her at all costs … even if what she needs protection from most is him.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Who do you trust when the person who was supposed to love you tried to kill you? The answer -- no one. Xan Bradley doesn't trust anyone but herself and her son, Scott. She has faith in the FBI agents assigned to keep her safe, but she knows that if her ex were to ever get out prison, all bets are off.

Brody "Brutus" Jackson is a loner, not necessarily by choice but by circumstance. His life essentially started over a decade ago when he awoke in a hospital with no memory of his past. Taken in by 'Colonel' Cal Sheppard, Brody has worked hard for him at his garage and in the 'side work' for governmental agencies.

When Xan becomes Brody's latest assignment, he becomes wary for the first time. He can't help but believe that he 'knows' Xan from somewhere but he just can't remember. Xan on the other hand feels an instant attraction towards Brody and it scares her.

The push pull of the Xan and Brody's relationship is very realistic and the added mystery keeps the story interesting. I was surprised by the twists at the end and can't wait to read the next book in this series.

Brody is super action packed, filled with suspense, love story. I loved it. From page one there is action that flows the whole way throughout the read. I was so invested in these characters. There was laughter, and crying. At times Brody and Xan's relationship or what there was of a relationship was heart breaking. Xan's back story was intense.

This line had me cracking up.

“Crying during sex would make him disappear fast than cake at a Weight Watchers meeting.”

I loved the intensity that Brody did everything with. He was very overwhelming at times and so sexy. The chemistry between the MCs was definitely HOT! Some of those sex I totally didn't see the "who done it" coming. I kept guessing but was totally wrong. I love that about a read. Love when the author can keep me guessing and bust out a surprise.

I can't wait to read more about Hunter in the next one!

I always enjoy starting a new series which involves Alpha males protecting the innocent, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to read and review Brody (Bang Shift book 1).

The mix of high drama and suspense, with plenty of twists, and some foreshadowing of who may get their story next, was highly entertaining. The interludes of hot, chemistry laden passion, which seemed inevitable from the start, were very well written. And seeing what happens next in future books is something I am looking forward to discovering. If you like your romance hot, and tinged with a touch of danger and intrigue, then this may be just what you should read next!
