Brody (Circle Eight Book #2) By Emma Lang
Wow, where do I start. Honestly one of the most enjoyable books in a long time. I picked it up and had a hard time putting it down (thank goodness I travel a lot for work and can read!).
Brody is on the hunt for Benji the missing Graham brother. As he sets out on the trail he is shocked to find out that Olivia Graham followed him and is planning on joining him on his search. He does not want her and hopes to convince her that this is not a place she wants to be. Olivia does not back down and proves time and time again that Brody needs her as a partner. I was hooked on Olivia from the beginning.
I will say that I did not like Olivia when she was introduced in the first book, she was a bitch, let’s be honest. But I will admit now that I really like her. Wow, is she a great character. It was great to see the transformation of Olivia from the first book to this one. And Brody, where do I start. The rugged, moody Texas Ranger, he just sounds hot! You knew he was not happy being stuck with Olivia as he searched for her missing brother Benji. The chemistry between them is hot and you can feel that they are into each other. I really enjoyed the steam scenes between them and even their bickering back and forth.
Brody is really, really well done. I got hooked in the story within the first chapter and I was glued to the pages. All the additional characters came together to create a really believable story and at the same time making me emotionally interested in the outcome. You really pull for Brody, Olivia and the Graham family.
