There’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s about to be set on fire.

Brix Ward is a Grade A prick.

He’s arrogant, spoiled, and self-centered. As the lead singer of A Rebels Havoc, he’s used to women falling over themselves for a chance to tame the wild bad boy.

Except for me.

I still remember the boy I grew up with. The one who went out of his way to make my life a living hell. I did my best to avoid him at all costs.

Imagine my surprise when our parents announced they had eloped, then left me to live with my new stepbrother. Alone.

Now, no matter what I do, there’s no escaping him. He’s always there, tempting me, provoking me. Every moment of every day. The more we’re around each other, the more the heat between us begins to rise.

If he thinks he can hurt me again, he’s dead wrong.

I won’t let him be the one to destroy me, even if it breaks my heart.


Brix is the first book in Brooke O’Brien’s brand new Rebels Havoc series and it was everything I love in a good forbidden step siblings romance! This story was an addictively sexy and steamy romance that burned me up inside and out. I am still trying to rid myself of this deep ache in my chest after inhaling all the words. I was living for every moment of this sinful story and I could not get enough of Brix and Ivy’s banter. These two were made for each other and oh my goodness did their chemistry set my heart on FIRE! I just couldn’t get enough of them and I was so sad when their story ended, but at least we will get to see more of them soon with the rest of the books in this standalone series!

Brix is your typical bad boy rockstar that ends up falling for Ivy, the girl that has been right in front of him all those years, even though he never realized…until it might have been too late. In the beginning I so did NOT want to like him at all, but Brooke O’Brien just has this way with words that makes you fall in love with even the most flawed of characters. He ended up capturing every fractured piece of my heart and soul…even if I wanted to punch him in the face a time or two.

Oh and don’t even get me started on my girl crush of Ivy! She is my spirt gal and I freaking loved her sassy personality and the vulnerability she was willing to expose to the man she found herself hating to love. She was so strong, but even the strongest person can break when faced with reality. Ivy was EVERYTHING and I couldn’t get enough of her story. She deserved a happily ever after, even with all the twists and turns that stood in their way.

Brooke O’Brien is a beautiful storyteller and you can discover that now when you pick up your copy of Brix today! Like seriously go do it RIGHT NOW!!!
