Brick by Jen Davis

A man like me doesn’t deserve his own happily ever after.

I’m used to getting my hands dirty. During the day it’s mud and grime on the construction site. At night… it’s the blood I spill.

A drug lord’s enforcer does what needs to be done. It’s my obedience, my loyalty to the boss that keeps my family alive.

I know I’m teetering on the edge. I’m losing my humanity, I can feel it. It’s changing me, and it’s only a matter of time before the darkness takes over.

Then I meet her. Liv. The only person who sees past my busted knuckles and brutal exterior. She sees… me.

But being with me will get her killed. The only way I can keep her safe is by staying away. Until her own actions catapult her into the center of my world—a world which will swallow her whole.

Now I’m forced to be the ruthless bastard I’ve been for so long. Only this time it’s not to destroy… but to defend.

Brick is a tough nut. While he's working his day job, Brick feels that he can be himself. At his night job, he's the tough, ruthless man that everyone knows and fears. Despite his night job, Brick knows that he isn't worthy of finding someone to love and to love him back. It's hard for him to step back when he sees the sister of one of his coworkers though. Instant attraction is something that he can't help. The more he tries to stay away from her, the more she pushes to get closer to him.

Olivia is used to her quiet life. Being a teacher isn't super exciting, but when she sees that there is a student who is not living up to his potential, she tries to help him. What she doesn't expect is to be caught in the crosshairs of a crazy and deadly enforcer for the local "boss." However, when she finds herself squarely in the path of the crazy enforcer, Tre, she will turn to Brick to save her.

The two have a great chemistry. I really enjoyed watching Olivia bring out Brick's softer side. Despite his past, she saw past his facade and saw the real Brick – she saw Johnathan.

The action in this story is somewhat disturbing at times, but also keeps the book moving. It was nice that the alpha male was not sleeping around and nice that the woman was the one doing the chasing. I am looking forward to more from this series.

Jen started her love affair with romance novels, first as a reader, then as a reviewer and blogger. She launched the Red Hot Books blog in 2010 and jumped into Book Twitter shortly after.

She wrote her first books, a YA/NA trilogy under another name back in 2016. But Brick is her first foray into Adult Contemporary Romance.

Jen is happily married to her high school sweetheart. Together, they’re raising two kids, a cat, and a dog who is afraid of his own shadow.

She spends her days working as television journalist and her nights curled up with a good book.
