Ruck Me (A Play On series short) Reviews
3.5 StarsDave is a wonderful hero. He is thoughtful, kind, respectful, appreciative, and sexy. He has a great deal of complexity to him as he loves rugby and loves running his flower business.It is fun to be in this rugby world again. This love story is on the hotter end of the scale and Brennan is again exploring characters with some pretty serious flaw which I like. The heroine is kind of Dave's opposite but for the sexy part. She has reason for being suspicious and rude. I think if I had had a better idea of her age I might have warmed up to her faster. Here is the thing though the novella and the set up for the romance don't give her the room she needs to grow up, heal, and become less reactive and more her best self. Dave loves her because she is hot, fierce, bold, smart, and protective which are all good qualities but she is also co dependent, enabling, angry, and has some issues with selfhood (which all makes total sense). I want her to evolve and to really see her and David in a relationship with its day to day struggles after the first weeks. We spend a good amount of time with another character who even though we are suppose to have some empathy for I still find repulsive. lol I will keep reading in this series but hope great character like Dave get more of a love story than this novella offers. I was given this book for my honest review. So there you have it!
I love a book where I learn something new and this book didn't disappoint on that score. The world of rugby is at the heart of this book, but nestled cozily by the romance I've come to expect from Brennan. Dave is an uncomplicated man who takes responsibility seriously. Sienna was his exact opposite, complex and mysterious, who only seems to have a care for her brother, Dick… Dave's devil-may-care nemesis on the rugby team. Sienna is the type to use her body to distract anyone from looking too closely. But Dave and Sienna are able to break out of their respective boxes and that made for great reading.Cd Brennan has written a grea sports romance with relatable characters who end up being there for each other when the going gets tough. I can highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
***** New Release *****Ruck Me: A Play On series short is now out on Amazon. Only 99cents or Free on KU. http://amzn.to/2qk0XZZIt's the first of three novellas where I snagged another sexy Traverse City Blues rugby player to tell his story, from his POV. I really enjoyed writing Dave Marsden—my gentle giant, the loose-head prop for the Blues, and owner of his own flower shop. Yep, he's a florist and proud of it. Sierra was a little trickier. She's had a hard upbringing, skank parents, and ended up raising her brother Dick. Do you remember him from the first books? Yeah, he's #1 Asshole on the team. Sierra had to resort to hacking to pay for their school lunches and supplies, and then her hacking skills became so good, it's become a way of life for her. But yeah, things finally catch up to her. As they do in life. But Dave is the one for her: patient, caring, and solid ground for her turbulent past.
Dave Marsden is a big, warm-hearted man who is both a player on a rugby team, the Traverse City Blues, and the owner of a flower shop. When the team’s bus, en route to a tournament, mistakenly strands Dave at a truck stop, he finds himself alone with a teammate’s sister, Sierra Richards. Dave is attracted to Sierra but, thanks to his own less than handsome looks, he worries that a beauty like Sierra could never fall in love with someone who looks like him.This novel is packed with interesting plot twists and turns. Sierra is a particularly intriguing character, with her troubled past, and since she and Dave are opposites, they make an unusual couple. A fun read.Kathleen Jones, author of Love Is the Punch Line
