Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by, taking what they want, always watching each other’s backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce
Security expert Beckett Tate has met his match in colleague Gia Sinclair. He longs to run his hands over each and every one of her lush curves. She’s wicked smart and wicked hot. He’s given her time to get used to the idea of “them,” but her time is up and he’s ready to go all in on claiming what’s his.
Despite her love of all things girlie, Gia’s no typical Southern belle. She’s built her skills and reputation in a field normally dominated by men, and now she has a kick-ass career she loves. She certainly doesn’t need a man to take care of her—especially not one who’s pure alpha. Still, Beckett’s the one man who can satisfy the desires she’s hidden under her tough exterior, and she’s hooked.
Letting Beckett take the lead in the bedroom comes naturally to Gia—not constantly proving herself to him professionally is more of a struggle. And when someone attacks her character and career, Gia and Beckett will have to find a balance: her willingness to let go just a little, with his trust in her abilities and his deep, primal need to protect his woman.
Stand & Deliver is book five in Rhenna Morgan’s Men of Haven series, and it’s just as delectably awesome as the other four books. Highly recommend! Come get you some.
This is Beckett and Gia’s story. They are both in the security business. They are also both deeply attracted to the other but think, “No way would the other go for me.” I forgot how much a good ole fashioned offensive approach just works for me.
Gia is trying to get her business up and running, but a few mishaps are ruining her reputation. And it doesn’t seem on the up-and-up. Beckett can’t keep his mind off Gia, and when it slips that she might be feeling him just as much, he’s determined to show her how sweet (and delightfully filthy) he can be.
Rhenna Morgan’s writing is pretty much magic, IMO. Gia and Beckett have such a great dialogue and add in the whole Haven enchilada, readers feel like part of the family. I know them, and that’s what makes this world so great. I also liked the added disorder that Beckett has to deal with. It’s a new one for me, and bringing awareness to it—and how it was handled—really brought Beckett to life for me.
Gia truly shines here, though. Yes, she’s badass and starting her own business and can get things done, she also knows when to ask and accept help which just made me love her even more.
Now, the suspense part was the only thing that didn’t work for me. I knew who it was and was kind of shocked that it took so long for everyone else to figure it out. It wasn’t believable. However, these characters and the romance sold me completely. I’ll definitely re-read this one!
Get your alpha fix, appreciate Gia’s absolute tenacity, and gather ‘round the family table. You don’t want to miss this installment!
