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.

This is my first read by this author. I have got to be honest. I am not one for third person books. I prefer either either first or second person. With that being said, Brick has changed what I originally preferred, and I will be more willing to read other third person books. Brick is not your light read, in fact it was rather dark. It is twisted really twisted, and it may be trigger for some readers. With that a side, this author took a risk with the risky subject matter and it paid off. Brick is a page turner, that's for sure. This suspenseful book had it all, the angst, the fear, the bravery, and great chemistry.

Brick is not your average hero. He is brutal, with a reputation that proceeds him. A complex enforcer for an even meaner loan shark at night, and a construction worker during the day. He lives by the rules for one reason, and one reason only, to keep his family alive. That goes without saying, that his heart speaks differently than his brain.

Liv, when I think of her, the first word that comes to mind is brave. She has been through the ringer and wants to enjoy life, actually really learn to live a good life. She is a teacher through and through, she wants to make a difference in her students life. She has a lightness to her that you do not see often.

When Brick meets Liv, he can instantly feel her lightness, but she is from a different world than he is, and being with him can get her killed. When her actions put her in his world, things take a different turn. Can Liv be the lightness to Brick's darkness?

I know I was kind of vague in this review, but this is one that needs to speak for itself. Let Brick show you his world, so you can understand him the way I do.
