Claim & Protect by Rhenna Morgan

Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society's expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other's backs.

Trevor Raines lives on the edge of legal. A good guy doing bad things to save lives, the only rules he follows are the Brotherhood's, and there's nothing in the world that will change that. Until Natalie Jordan walks into his life…

Natalie's only interest is in making a fresh start. She's a woman with a plan, and the plan doesn't include a man with secrets, no matter how kind—or intoxicating—he is. But this cowboy is determined to break down her walls, keep her safe and make her his.

Trevor had no interest in settling down, but there's something entirely too appealing about the woman he can't stay away from. There's only one thing to do—change his plans…and hers. When Natalie's ex resurfaces to threaten her new life, Trevor will move heaven and earth to make sure the bastard can't hurt her again. Except saving Natalie means outing his own secrets—and it could mean losing her forever…

This is Trevor's story and what a story it is. Trevor Raines is just like the other brothers of the Haven Brotherhood. He doesn't think he is relationship material because of his past. But the one thing that will have him protecting a woman is when a man is using her for a punching bag. He doesn't believe it is what a man should do to a woman or trying to intimidate her isn't good either. So when his new waitress has to leave work early because of her ex-husband, he follows her home just to make sure she is okay.

Natalie Jordan is finally trying to get her life in order, but her ex-husband won't stop trying to intimidate her and try to use her son as some kind of leverage. She knows that Wyatt is up to something, but she hasn't figured it out yet.

While Trevor and Natalie grow closer and Levi worms his way into Trevor's heart, Trevor is having feelings he has never felt before. Natalie is trying to not think that Trevor might turn out like Wyatt. She knows deep down that Trevor can never be anything like Wyatt.

So can Trevor make his feelings known and Natalie trust her feelings? Will Levi make all of the Brotherhood see just what Trevor sees in him? What will Wyatt do in the end?

I am loving each of these brothers and I can't wait to see what happens with Knox in the next story.

The third book in the Haven Brotherhood series and this is Trevor's story. Trevor owns a nice bar and likes to fly planes. He's not looking for love or a relationship, just having a good time. Even though his brothers seem to be pairing off at an alarming rate Trevor is happy with an easy life. After hiring a new waitress, Trevor starts rethinking things. Natalie is a small and curvy, hardworking, single mom. He gave her a shot and she's proven her worth with the customers and with Trevor. After having some issues one night with her ex, Trevor makes sure she's home alright and finds himself having to intervene by acting like Natalie's new boyfriend in front of her ex. Finding that pulling her close and pretending to be lovers feels awfully right and good, the two decide to give it a try for real. Only problem, Natalie's ex is doing everything he can to cause issues.

I really enjoyed Trevor's personality and his cowboy charm. I could almost picture his panty melting half smile/smirk and his character was fun and sweet! Natalie is a great heroine too, trying to rebuild her life after her abusive ex, she's strong, smart & determined. Both characters are quite likable and they spark well together. I enjoyed the entire book front to finish. I'm liking these boys of the Haven Brotherhood!

Trevor Raines didn't think he deserved a happily ever after. He thought the baggage he carried from his past was too much. He owned Crossroads bar, but that wasn't his passion. His passion was flying and his ranch. When he hired a new waitress, he tried not noticing the way her hips swayed or how beautiful she was. When Natalie runs into trouble with her ex-husband, Trevor didn't think twice before jumping in the middle.

One dinner was all it took for Trevor to realize there may be more between them, even though Natalie appreciated the help with her ex, she had a son to consider. She wasn't ready for anything more than a casual friendship.

I love these brothers. They are real and down to earth, sexy and oh so protective. Trevor has more than his fair share of swoon worthy moments and the chemistry is chart topping for Trevor and Natalie.

I can't wait to see what Ms. Morgan does next.

This is Trevor's story. He has been known as the resident one-night stand guy. However, when all of his brothers come together and are trying to find a way to make the lucrative drug smuggling business less dangerous, he has to call on his brothers, family, and his own determination to figure out whether or not he can claim Natalie – does he deserve her?

Natalie is struggling to make ends meet and fighting to keep her son away from her crazy, possessive ex-husband. She knows that her ex isn't a good guy and even her son knows that he has a crazy temper.

When sparks fly between Natalie and Trevor, can they both overcome their own insecurities to find a happiness neither of them knew could be possible? I loved Natalie's son, Levi. He's adorable and also, such a stand up kid.

This was a great story and I can't wait for more!

This is the third book in the series, and I highly recommend that you read them in order and get to enjoy all that the Haven Brotherhood men have to offer (*phwoar!)

Once again, Ms. Morgan gives us a situation which brings back long buried issues and forces a Haven Brotherhood member to consider how to react and resolve an issue he faces now. Trevor is clearly a really good guy, yet possibly the last to want to get involved in Natalie's mess, given the memories it raises. But he soon finds that he can't resist.

I am a bit of a sucker for stories which involve children and someone stepping up to ensure they get the best start in life, so this was a real pleasure to read. And once things get straightened out, it is super hot and sweet too.

Another great addition to the series, thank you, Ms. Morgan.

3.5 Stars

I don’t know that I liked this one quite as much as the previous books and it’s definitely a slower pace, but it’s still pretty good!

Natalie works for Trevor at his bar – he’s a pretty easy-going boss with his only rule being no cellphones. Trevor continuously catches Natalie on hers until he finally overhears a phone conversation that has him concerned for his newest employee and the only woman to have caught his eye in a while. Natalie escaped an abusive ex who had enough power to manage to get joint custody of her precious son, now her ex spends much of the time he doesn’t have his son terrorizing Natalie. Then Trevor steps in and nips that in the bud… by claiming her as his.

I love Trevor’s possessive protectiveness, he’s definitely an alpha male and he’ll do anything to protect his woman. My one complaint about this book was Natalie – she just didn’t have a back bone and I didn’t like the way she treated Trevor towards the end of the book. My favorite part, as always with this series, was the Brotherhood. They’re a sexy set of guys and I love the glimpses of each of the other guys we get in each of these books. I look forward to the next installment!

Rhenna Morgan is a happily-ever-after addict—hot men, smart women and scorching chemistry required. A triple-A personality with a thing for lists and an almost frightening iPhone cover collection, Rhenna’s a mom to two beautiful little girls and married to an extremely patient husband who’s mastered the art of hiding the exasperated eye roll.

When she’s not neck deep in writing, she’s probably driving with the windows down and the music up loud, plotting her next hero and heroine’s adventure. (Though trolling online for man-candy inspiration on Pinterest comes in a close second.)

She’d love to share her antics and bizarre since of humor with you and get to know you a little better in the process. You can sign up for her newsletter and gain access to exclusive snippets, upcoming releases, fun giveaways and social media outlets on her website.
