Book 2, The Brooklyn Brotherhood
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Meet the Brooklyn Brotherhood: three brothers who escaped rough childhoods in Park Heights, Brooklyn who grew into fiercely loyal, sexy men – and who find love when they’re least expecting it.
Landon McGee has a past he’d rather stayed buried and forgotten. Now a successful video game designer, his life in Brooklyn with his adoptive mother and brothers has made him into the man he is today. But when his office is robbed and the gorgeous Detective Daphne Rossi comes onto the scene, her desire to investigate the crime—and his past—could be Landon’s undoing.
Daphne knows she’s a good cop. She’s determined and always gets to the bottom of her cases. But something about Landon, and his break-in, has her questioning her ability to keep her personal and professional lives separate. As Daphne probes further into the case, Landon’s past comes to the surface, threatening their budding relationship. Will the secrets in his past put a halt to the growing passion between them, or is love enough to make them see that a future together is worth coming to terms with the past?
Another wonderful story
Another winner in the series of the Bronx brothers Nick, Landon and Fender and their adopted mother Louisa. Ms Fox has cornered the market on just how to perfectly pull on the heartstrings so that the reader is able to experience exactly what the characters are experiencing.
After the first book in the series where Nick and Emma's find their HEA, the story returns to bring Landon and Daphne together. The superb writing captures perfectly the sufferings of a little boy, Landon, at the neglect by his drugged out mother, and how, after being adopted along with two other boys, Nick and Fender, through a foundation of love and nurturing by their adopted mother Louisa, Landon finds his own happiness and love in Detective Daphne Rossi.
Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand alone because the backstory is layered throughout the book in such a way to bring in Nick and Emma's story, without detractions, or creating any confusion. There is the perfect amount of humor, romance, tension and a robbery mystery to whet the appetite of just about any reader. You'll find yourself immersed in Daphne's solving of the robbery, as well becoming evolved with the attraction between she and Landon.
Hopefully the next book will bring Fender and Harlow together, and we'll find out if Daphne is promoted into the Terrorist Taskforce. The one thing I wish this story could have tied up before its ending.
