Title: Rough & Tumble
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.
A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore's hidden wild side and knows she's his perfect match, if only he can break it free. He will have her. One way or another.
Vivienne's determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she's built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv's plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club's clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.
Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society's walk and talk society's talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He's proud of who he is and where he came from, and he'll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.

The first line of that blub had me curious. The sexy man on the cover delivering just that had me downloading this book immediately. Rhenna Morgan is a new to me author and I’m glad I gave Rough & Tumble a go.
Vivienne to Jace “I think you’re the type to make a woman lose good sense.”
Yes, I do believe I’ll have myself a super alpha book boyfriend just like that. Jace delivers on all of that and so much more. He’s sexy, tattooed, lives by his own creed, has a delicious smile, and a sexy tongue that delivers scorching hot dirty talk and so much more in the bedroom. He’s the bossy type that you’d never want in real life but book boyfriends are created from the like of him. He’s loyal and devoted to his family and he doesn’t let anyone into that inner circle, ever. He’s pulled himself up by the bootstraps out of a gutter to become a successful business man with his hands in many different business ventures. The moment Jace sees Viv he knows he has to have her in his life and for the life of me I have no clue why.
Jace to Vivienne “The sooner you figure out who the hell you are in the inside, the happier you’ll be.”
I did not like Viv. She has some too stupid to live moments that I never worked past. She’s also fake. Vivienne like Jace came from a less than proper home and upbringing. She’s desperately trying to become a successful business owner to pay for her pristine home that is decorated the way a magazine dictates, her wardrobe that makes her look like someone she is not, and the sensible affordable sedan that society dictates she must have in the garage. Her booze guzzling, drug seeking sister that she has to rescue every Saturday night tarnishes her very fake façade. Yeah I didn’t like Vivie at all.
I did love what Haven is to these six men. I enjoyed the concept behind the Haven Brotherhood. Each of the brothers comes from a different background. Each man has brought something different to the family. This is something that works for me and leaves me with the feeling that I will give the next book in the series, Wild & Sweet a try.
