Camden Brooks is an Alpha male you’re going to love to hate! At first Camden seems like your stereotypical romance Alpha male with a chip on his shoulder, but just like in real life once you scratch the surface there is so much more to a person than what they let the world see. Camden is no exception to that rule. In fact all of the Brooks boys seem to have that in common.
Although he has several “typical” Alpha traits, I found him to be very caring and exceptionally giving, in and out of the bedroom! He likes to be in control of just about everything, which at times could really grate on my nerves, because for me there is a very thin line between in control and domineering. Stacey Borel did a great job of keeping him on the right side of the line.
Keegan, AKA Blue, Is a young woman trying to separate herself from her immature and selfish mother, while still being a significant presence in her little sisters life. She is working her way through college and finds herself needing a space of her own. While at times Keegan’s age really showed I thought that since this is a NA\YA novel it was necessary to the evolution of the story.
Keegan, like most women her age, has self-confidence issues that are brought to light by certain comments that are made and different situations she is put in. I felt this made her more genuine and easier to fall in love with.
Although she is self-conscious, I found Keegan to be fiercely loyal, feisty, stubborn, and independent to a fault. I love the relationship between her and her little sister, Keegan is more of a motherly presence in her sister’s life, and giving all of her spare time and attention to making sure, she does not grow up the same way Keegan was forced to.
The supporting cast is almost as great as the main characters! Maci, Keegan’s best friend and Dodger, Camden’s little brothers are a riot and hopefully, at some point will get their very own story! I loved how Keegan and Dodger formed a friendship before Keegan and Camden start anything. Dodger did a great job of not choosing sides and attempting to stay neutral while still manipulating situations so that in the end both Keegan and Camden are happy.
All in All I Gave Bender 5 stars!! The chemistry was out of this world, The sex scenes were scorching, Stacey Borel had me laughing, crying, cursing , and sweating while crossing my legs. I cannot wait to get to know the rest of the Brooks brothers!
