fulljacketsmall2(1)Synopsis:

Sent away every summer after her father is taken hostage, while deployed in Afghanistan, Breesan Maxwell is allowed to spend her first summer in thirteen years at home on Willow Island. Invited to a welcome home party for Morgan Walker, playboy and future heir to Walker Corporation, Breesan’s self-made world of exile begins to fall away. An introduction to Morgan only initiates the downfall of her self-contained world. His brother, undercover Drug Task Force Enforcer, Marcus Walker’s return adds to the chaos by uncovering family secrets, lies and evil plans to destroy her that will make protecting her heart and those around her extra difficult. Family responsibilities, deceits and the criminal behavior twist these three lives together threatening their meager existences. One brother could offer her a love that will be all worth the downfall.

Excerpt:  – One from each POV

Marcus POV

“Breesan fucking Maxwell has wrecked my whole damn world. Everything in me is demanding that I stay as far away from her as I can get. Given my dual role with surveillance on her, for The Witch as well as the team, I pray our contact will remain at a distance.

Climbing into my Jeep, I lean my head back against the headrest. I scrub my hand roughly over my head and force it through my hair. Slowly dragging it back down my face I inhale deeply and her sweet scent assaults me. I must have rubbed some of her perfume from her back onto the sleeve of my coat. I slide my nose along the length of the arm remembering how I held her securely in it just an hour ago. Now I need a fucking cold shower.

I groan loudly, “I want her so fucking bad.’”

Breesan POV

“‘Bullshit! You have been fucking with me since the night we met. You know what? I’m over this shit. You want me? Get over it because you can’t have me. I am not some stupid girl who will fuck some guy just because he confesses how badly he wants me in his bed. Why do you even feel the need to tell me this shit?” My voice is bordering hysterical. “Have I given you any reason for such a confession? No! Hell no I haven’t. Just leave me alone,” I growl. Stomping off, I leave his ass sitting on that fucking porch swing.”

Morgan POV

“Blaming the daydreaming on the large amount of alcohol before dinner, I envision wrapping her coffee colored hair around my hand, yanking her against me, pushing my face into it and finding out how fucking soft it is for myself. I’m consumed with the thoughts of all the things I could do with that little body underneath mine.

Watching her relentlessly biting on that plump bottom lip, she’s just begging me to drag her out of that chair to me, so that she’s straddling my lap and riding me in front of everyone here.

Dammit.”

Be All

Love them or hate them, these are a few of my favorite secondary characters

Anna Knight – Occasionally obnoxious, looks that could kill, needy, head-strong and someone you could consider a true friend (Breesan’s bff)

Tristan Walker – Typical all-American boy next door, the most beautiful man ever, a pain in the ass but good-hearted, devoted to Anna, and loved by all (Anna’s boyfriend and Breesan’s only other friend)

Elise Carrington – A spoiled bitch. Love to hate her

Rhys Bentley – Hubba, hubba, devoted to his job, and witty sense of humor – need more Rhys!!

Kole De Luca – A real good boy in a bad boy’s body and he loves his mother

Ian Collins – Insatiable, hot and appreciates the wisdom of older women

Jack Collins – Commanding, sexy and mysterious

Waverly Collins – Sex kitten, funky and as a rule takes no shit

Julia Maxwell – Self-serving, cold heart and just plain greedy

Dr. A – A total mystery

Review:

Breesan Maxwell is a mess. Sure she looks gorgeous and like she has it all together, but inside she is completely distressed.  No one is left in her life that loves her (she thinks) and she doesn’t want anyone to get to close for fear that they will be taken away too.  She’s home for the first summer since she was child and she’s determined not to let her bitch of a step-m0ther ruin her time their before college.  What she doesn’t plan for is meeting the Walker brothers or what happens after.

Marcus and Morgan Walker are twins who have spent their time abroad in England except for the summertime.  They have come home to help with the family business.  Morgan is a player who won’t settle down and Marcus has had his heart shattered by the last woman he gave it to.  She cheated on him – with his brother!  So, Morgan and Marcus do not get along and are not talking to each other because of it.  Then, Breesan comes into the picture.  Morgan wants her, but as a plaything and Marcus wants her, but his current career path is a major obstacle.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.  I was involved early on in the process when Marie was writing the book.  I had gotten the story chapters at a time and things were revised a lot.  My BFF Venture got involved as a beta reader and helped Marie with the chapters.  I got to read it again after it was mostly finished.  It was really different, but not in a bad way.  I don’t generally read romance and I’m not generally a huge fan of the genre.  But, like I told Marie, Be All is NOT a romance  – it is SO much more!  This story has romance, intrigue, drama, comedy and tragedy.  It is such a sexy story but it is not just about sex and engorged lengths and swollen nubs.  I love that about this book.  It has depth to it that goes beyond the traditional romance story.

I truly, truly, truly can not say enough about this book.  Even though it is Marie’s first book, it doesn’t read that way.  She is so adept at weaving the stories that these poor fucked up people have to tell.  She is descriptive without being wordy; vivid without being cliche; sultry without being gawdy.  The sexy parts have the right amount of sex – not too much and not prudish.  I love that.  I also love the fact that even though the main character professes that she won’t give up her heart, she doesn’t!  I have read so many books where the main character says “No one can have my heart!” just to jump into bed with someone and be head over heels in love with them by the second chapter!  I am so glad that as you are reading the book you don’t know if she EVER will let herself feel love.  Everything that happens is a complete surprise.  There are many secrets and foreshadowing that happens, and Marie doesn’t let you know what is going to happen by the end of book 1.  Book 2 is on my high anticipation list and it doesn’t come out until November.  However, I get to beta read for Marie, so I will get to learn what happens to these characters before you!
