Title: Wild & Sweet
Haven Brotherhood #2
Author: Rhenna Morgan
Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.
Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn’t always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.
Zeke doesn’t play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he’s exactly what she needs in her life. He’ll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.
When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe, and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk.

I have such a soft spot for brotherhood series. I love the camaraderie between Zeke and his chosen family. I’ve always enjoyed series that include all the same characters but each book focuses on certain individuals. If you haven’t read the first in the Haven Brotherhood series, that’s okay because each book can be read as a standalone.
Gabrielle (aka Gabe) is our leading lady in this story. Personally, I adored her character. She suffers from a mental illness and this plays a huge part in the story. I’ve read very few books that have included mental illness into the plot and done such a good job at portraying it. I know from first hand experience that suffering from anxiety is no walk in the park. Your thoughts are all consuming and fear rules you. I absolutely loved how we as readers got to see Gabe grow as a person. She started off as a scared woman, unsocial and afraid of getting close to people in fear of them leaving her.
Zeke doesn’t want to change Gabe in any way, he adores her just as she is. He helps guide her to self discovery and pushes her out of her comfort zone. You can tell that Zeke really cares for Gabe, so much so that she is frightened that her past will repeat itself.
I enjoyed reading Wild & Sweet. There was just the right amount of romance, steamy scenes, action and character development. Take all of these things and wrap them together and it makes for a well written novel and a highly enjoyable read!
