Brix by Brooke O’Brien Release Blitz & Dual ReviewGenres: Contemporary Romance, New Adult & College, Series

Brix Ward is a Grade A prick.
He's arrogant, spoiled, and self-centered. As the lead singer of A Rebels Havoc, he's used to women falling over themselves for a chance to tame the wild bad boy.
Except for me.
I still remember the boy I grew up with. The one who went out of his way to make my life a living hell. I did my best to avoid him at all costs.
Imagine my surprise when our parents announced they had eloped, then left me to live with my new stepbrother. Alone.
Now, no matter what I do, there's no escaping him. He's always there, tempting me, provoking me. Every moment of every day. The more we're around each other, the more the heat between us begins to rise.
If he thinks he can hurt me again, he’s dead wrong.
I won’t let him be the one to destroy me, even if it breaks my heart.

Kim's Review

Brix is an incredibly unique story that grabbed me from the first page! This forbidden stepbrother romance just ticks off all the boxes for me! A sassy heroine who gives just as good as she gets and a sexy jerk of a stepbrother who isn’t exactly as intimidating as he seems.

I fell head over heels for Ivy and Brix! Their banter, chemistry that jumps off the pages and the sexiness that these two characters brought to the table was outstanding. The drama and angst between Ivy and Brix was just the perfect amount and it consumed my afternoon! Add in a perfect HEA and bonus epilogue and I have to tell you that I honestly could not put this book down <3

I definitely think that Brooke O’Brien has stepped up her game with Brix and it shows! Brix & Ivy rocked my world and I’ve found a new book boyfriend in Brix <3 This is honestly my favorite book from this author and I cannot wait to get more of A Rebels Havoc! 


Liz's Review

As soon as I read the blurb for Brix, the first book in the new series, A Rebel’s Havoc, by Brooke O’Brien, I knew I wanted to read it. Brix Ward had tormented Ivy for years in high school and she hated him. And now he was her step-brother and she was living with him and their parents for the summer. She was determined to avoid him at all cost. But he was everywhere she was.

Ivy is putting herself through college and the last thing she expected was the boy, who was now all man, who had tormented her for years, be her new roommate. He was cocky, determined and yet he drew her in ways she wanted to avoid. For Brix, Ivy was all woman now and he wanted to do things to her he should not be thinking about. As they begin to spend time together, she begins to see a different side of him. Could she trust him? But she was not the same person she was before. She gave as good as she got. She was full of sass, sweet and smart.

Brix by Brooke O’Brien was an angst-filled, emotional and captivating read. The characters will draw you in and their journey will keep you riveted. I loved the story and cannot wait for more from the series!
