Relentless, The Marsh Brothers, Anna Wells
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
This is the second book, the first being about Michaela’s brother, not a Marsh brother. I’ve not read that but the description to this sounded good, and they are both stand alone novels though connected via characters. I love those kind of series 🙂
We start after the breakup with the partners when Michaela and Jordan have been close friends for the year since the split. Jordan wants more but is going slow, and Michaela is very attracted to him but as he hasn’t ever suggested anything other than friendship she thinks he’s not interested. Then they go out to a works Xmas party, Michaela gets a bit tipsy, not drunk, just enough to lower inhibitions, and back at her home having a nightcap she leans in and brushes her lips against Jordans. That’s all the leeway he needs, and they quickly end up in a hot and heavy, sensual and steamy sex session. Next morning she’s worried he was just a bit intoxicated and will regret it, so she tries to pre-empt him with her standard brush off, saving herself the pain of rejection…..that doesn’t go down well. Before she knows it circumstances have happened that see their relationship moving forward at top speed. Poor Michaela – if ever there was a candidate for the “make haste slowly” she’s it, but Jordan is a force unto himself, he doesn’t let her think long enough to regret or back track. He’s got to know her well over the last year, and now his plans are coming to fruition he’s not letting anything stop them.
They’re a great pair, Michaela has been let down so often I understand her caution, but Jordan is determined. Its what’s worked for him so far in life and he isn’t changing now. But there are secrets he can’t tell Michaela, and once they’re together she sees another side of him entirely…gone is her patient, cautious friend, and come in is this terrific but steamroller type person, and she seems to be wherever he wants her before she can even think about it. He’s a lovely man and knows her very well, he only wants the best for both of them but the secrets could derail that, and add in some attacks to Michaela by someone unknown and there’s potential for huge problems.
I really enjoyed this book, loved Michaela and her family, and of course Jordan and his. I loved the deadpan humour that crept in, such as when Michaela’s mum calls round and finds them at breakfast. Michaela is trying to say they’re just friends, but Jordan and her mum have a conversation about her over her head. “Stop talking about me, I’m right here” she says, but they both know her too well and know what she’s like once the thinking sets in.
Its was a fun read, some steamy and sensual sex scenes that fitted the plot perfectly, and I like that the danger and endings were wrapped up. I hate unfinished business at the end of a novel. I don’t have price info but its 282 pages, so enough to get a real story going with lots of emotion and drama.
Stars:four – great read and I hope to see more from the Marsh brothers.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
