Caldwell Brothers #1
By: Chelsea Camaron & M.J. Fields
Perfect for fans of J. S. Scott and Emma Chase, Hendrix introduces the wild and sexy Caldwell boys—three brothers who are living up to their legendary names in Detroit Rock City.
Hendrix Caldwell wants nothing more than to revitalize the family bar—and tear down every last reminder of his no-good father. But business isn’t the only thing on his mind. An explosive encounter with a stranger at a charity masquerade is just the distraction he craves, with no names and no strings attached. For Hendrix, sex is casual, and love is a four-letter word. His commitment is to his brothers, his bar, and his bike. So why can’t he stop thinking about the naughty Cinderella who rocked his world, then left him—and her panties—behind?
Olivia Hemmingway knows fairytales are for little girls. Drowning in debt and hiding a shameful secret, she won’t be saved by a knight in tattooed armor, no matter how mind-blowing their one-night stand may have been. Olivia never expects to meet her masked lover again. But when she takes a job at Hendrix Caldwell’s bar, her sexy new boss seems all too familiar. And once the lights go out and the music is turned up, the sparks between them burn hotter than ever.
Hendrix is the first in a trilogy about three sexy as sin brothers and the family bar in motor city Detroit as they fall in love and fight to survive another day from Field and Cameron, two authors familiar to me but never had the pleasure of reading until now . The concept of the series , is not something anew but I like the idea of the family and the individual quirks of the brothers . As it not all that seems with the family.
Hendrix is the oldest of the trio , bar owner r and family protector and has looked after his family for years thanks to useless alcoholic father. His mother was the only female that he has ever loved and now he is determined that his father pays as he is a proud man and wants to show him that he is better than he was ever going to be . The determination is what drives his life and he is willing to do anything to make things happen . And winning the family bar off him was the first step to that goal as he knows the bar is going no where with his father. Now he is trying to build the bar up to the reputation that It had and if means mixing at charity masquerade then so be it. It all for the bar as he has no time for everything else, ther business is the most important thing in his life.
However the charity function turns to anything about business. As Hendrix is no monk, he doesn’t commitment and love is a word that isn’t in his vocabulary. Though a chance encounter with a beautiful become an explosive encounter learning him satisfied and nothing more He doesn’t expect anything more as it is a distraction and gets him the energy to revitalised himself and plod on as there no names involved exactly .
Until she turns up right on his doorstep looking for a job……
Olivia ‘Liv’ is a proud woman determined to make her own way. She doesn’t want hand outs or anything. She is a resilient woman with a past that has shaped her career choice. A social worker and whilst she loves her job. It doesn’t pay the bills which are pilling up and she a risk of becoming homeless.
Going to the charity masquerade was a chance to forget and for moment she does until she walks into the bar and realise one of the brothers is the mysterious man and when it turns to be Henderix.
I love a duo writing together and this book was seamless I don’t know which author was writing which part of the book. So I assumed they both take on a character each as we get alternative chapters in the each of the protagonists. A typical alpha male and determined woman. They were meant for each other and the authors did a conceiving job considering the tough issues that Olivia was facing. There is a big but though I was so hesitant about her acceptance about the solution to her problems. I get why she would consider that she was a person who tried to get along with everyone and was easy going. I would have been more like Hendrix and I wished this was more explored.
