Brentlee Johnson-Corbin has always followed her mother's rules, even when it meant marrying a man she knew wasn't her happily-ever-after.
Bates "Sniper" Lukin, a retired marine, now rides with the Notorious Devils—his street name earned in the deserts of hell.
When the most precious part of Brentlee's world is threatened by the man who was meant to love them, she escapes to the only safe place she knows. But when she seeks the shelter of her sister, Kentlee, and her husband, Fury, her past steps in—and he's determined to protect Brentlee and her daughter as his own.
Their story is one of love discarded, but Sniper won't waste this opportunity to right the wrongs of his past.
Life has been cruel to them both, and Brentlee is certain that the love they lost is gone forever; but under his protective wing, she can't deny that this rough and raw man might be just the hope she needs.
I must say that I liked Rough And Raw more than I did Rough And Rowdy, but only a little bit more sadly. I don’t know if it is just me not clicking with these characters or if it is the books themselves but I just can’t love them as much as I wished I did.
Now that being said, this one is more emotional and angsty than the previous book, at least for me it was. Rough And Raw is about second chances, healing, heartbreak with a side dose of suspense, drama and action. Brentlee and Bates will have you pulling your hair out in frustration at times, trust me I am lucky that I didn’t give myself a bald spot while reading this one. Even with the hair pulling tendencies I had with this one, it was also emotional so prepare yourself for that as well. So while I am not blown away so far by this series, I do still enjoy them and would say try them out for yourself before making any conclusions.
