Release Blitz! No Apologies By Jess Bryant




Every small town has that one family that's more savage than civilized. The ones that are more myth and legend than man. In Old Settlers, Oklahoma that's the Bomar boys. Wild, reckless and vicious, they skirt the line of criminal and trip over it more often than not. They are their own punchline: white trash but proud beyond compare. Dirty and dangerously sexy, it's best to steer clear of them or else risk your life... and your heart. These are their stories.

Colt Bomar is a bastard. A dirty, violent piece of white trash, he makes no apologies for who and what he is. He's never cared what anyone thinks of him and he cares even less about trying to be a better kind of man... until her.

She's everything he's not. Good, sweet, gentle, she's an angel that brightens his dark existence. But he's seen the kind of destruction a man like him can wreak and he intends to protect her from that, from him, if it's the only good thing he ever does.

Skylar Holland is no angel. Angels don't lust after the bad-tempered boy next door when they're involved with another man. They don't dream about having the rough hands and sinful mouth of a guy that snaps and snarls at them all over their body. And that's what she's wanted from Colt since the moment the troubled Bomar boy said they were nothing but friends.

Friends? With a man that makes her blood boil and her heart melt? No, she wants more. She wants everything. And she's not about to apologize for going after what she knows they both want. Forever.

Can he overcome his past to give her the future he knows she deserves? or is he doomed to repeat the sins of his father by dragging her down into the darkness with him? And if she treads into the shadows to win him will she even still be the woman he wants when they come out the other side?

*No Apologies is the second book in the Bomar Boys series but can be read as a stand-alone. Each book features one couple and a HEA but do build on each other so they are best read in order.

**Warning** This book contains explicit language, sexual scenes and violence. Though not depicted, mentions of abuse are key to the storyline and can be a trigger for some.




I read this book after reading No Regrets. Technically this book could be a standalone but I found it helpful to have read book one first. This book has some of the same potential triggers as the first as well.

Colt Bomar is a tough character. Shaped by a difficult past growing up, he and his twin try to break away from their bad family name by trying to better themselves, which makes them the black sheep of their own family. He definitely doesn’t want anything like love or a relationship clouding his vision.

Skylar seems to have it all going for her-she has a great boyfriend, her best friend is back in town, she’s running her own business. However, she can’t stop herself from wanting the one man she shouldn’t want-Colt Bomar. I absolutely loved Skylar. I loved her spunk and determination to get what she wanted-even if it was the opposite of what Colt wanted.

I liked this book just a touch more than I liked the first book in the series. I felt connected to Skylar and appreciated the path she and Colt took to one another. The sizzle between them was there and watching it burn hotter each time they were together was immensely satisfying.

Again, this book has some issues (domestic violence and drug use) that may make it difficult for some to read. I think the author handles these issues gracefully and as honestly as she could. If you’re looking for a quick bad boy book, give this one a try.



No Apologies is the second book in the Bomar Boys series and while yes technically you can read this as a standalone, I think you may have a deeper connection with the characters if you read No Regrets first.  Just something for you to think about.  Also I just want to throw it out there that if you have any type of triggers when it comes to domestic violence you may want to keep that in mind while reading.  I am going to keep this review fairly short and to the point because I don’t have a whole lot to say unfortunately.  While I liked No  Apologies it wasn’t, for me at least, anything that I would say is a must read or that I would read again.  I think this one fell victim to my book slump from hell.  So I suggest that you read both books and make your own conclusions and while the title may be No Apologies I must say that I am sorry that I didn’t love it like I had hoped.
