Title: Broken Souls

Author: Andi Rhodes
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: January 9, 2020
I served my country and returned broken. Trying to fit the pieces back
together, I built the Broken Rebel Brotherhood. We walked a fine line between
right and wrong to protect those who had nowhere else to turn. I’d never mixed
business with pleasure. That is, until her.
After years of abuse at the hands of my husband, I’d had enough. The only
way to live was to run. Disappear. Life had other plans for me. Plans that
included a sexy biker. I wasn’t looking for love, and I certainly didn’t think
I could trust again. That is, until him.
Life had been cruel too many times to count, but the worst was yet to
come. Will love be enough to keep them from shattering?
The Broken Rebel Brotherhood series consists of
three complete stories with guaranteed HEA’s. All three books can be read as a
standalone. Each book contains subject matter that some may find disturbing.
Reader discretion is advised.

Micah scooped me up
in his arms, carried me to the bed and gently placed me on the mattress. I
could still see the ticking in his jaw. He sat down beside me on the edge
of the bed and sighed.
“First of all, do
not apologize for your sass. I love it. Second, don’t ever apologize for
speaking your mind or standing up for yourself or for demanding answers. Third,
I hope to God that you weren’t suggesting that you have to pay me for my
kindness with sexual favors. I don’t work like that. I’m not going to lie and
say that I don’t like a good fuck, because I do. I am a man after all. But I
have never forced a woman to do something she doesn’t want to do and I sure as
shit ain’t starting now. I can tell that you haven’t had good experiences where
the male species are concerned, but sweetness, I’m going to show you that not
all men are snakes.” Micah breathed in deeply through his nose and then
released it through his mouth.
“If you say you’re
sorry one more time, we’re going to have issues, you and me. The last thing I
want to tell you before I get Doc back in here to check your wounds, is this.
You are welcome here in the main house for as long as you need to be here.
Shit, you're welcome anywhere on this property. You will be protected, and no
one will hurt you. The BRB will do whatever is necessary to ensure that. Now,
do you think you will be okay in here for a few minutes while I get Doc? You
won’t try to run again?”
All I could do was
nod. He’d said a lot in the past few minutes and I tried to take it all in. He
couldn’t be real. As I watched him stand up and walk to the door, a thought
occurred to me.
Micah looked over his shoulder at me, eyebrows raised.
“Sweetness, the BRB
is your family now. We’re the Broken Rebel Brotherhood.”

This book had all the components that make up an amazing recipe for a good romance novel. In my opinion, anyways! It was full of angst, and like the title says, broken souls. And I love me some angst. The chemistry between Micah and Sadie is the epitome of insta love, but the steamy stuff is more of a slow burn. There’s a ton of sexual tension, and the build up didn’t disappoint.
The secondary characters in this book really make me anxious for the next books in this series. We were given tiny glimpses of some things to come. It was enough to get me excited!
I really liked Micah. He has a tough exterior, but he’s all mushy on the inside. He’s as loyal as the day is long. You can’t help but fall hard for him. It was good to see Sadie’s character develop and grow throughout the story. The world has shit on her more times than most people could survive, but she pushes past being a victim and comes out stronger in the end.
This is the first book I’ve read by Andi Rhodes and I’m looking forward to seeing what else she has out. Overall, this book was pretty damn good.
