Review: Each Book in the Brac Village collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. This particular story is connected to the Brac Pack, Zeus Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Generation, and Demon Warriors. To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Corey flees an abusive situation and ends up in Brac Village. However he seems to only have bad luck. He can’t find a place to stay for one. That is until he overhears someone who needs a new roommate. Things might just be looking up especially when he even lands a job.

Jake has been assigned to find the man who killed an innocent. He joins the police department in Brac Village and has the luck of finding an apartment right across from his nephew and his mate. He knows that one of the killers had been a cop that had been killed not too long ago, but to him everyone at the station might just be the other killer. He must protect his mate and in comes the surprises with this one.

I enjoyed the humor mixed in with the seriousness of the story. The characters are quite enjoyable and sweet, or at least Corey is. Jake is a bit like the cop down the street, hard headed and strong. I like that the story is full of action, excitement and entertaining. However it felt rushed which has been a pattern with the last few books by this author that I have been reading.

Other than my issues with the story it was an enjoyable read it and I look forward to the next book.
