You want my hands on you, Celia. Making you shiver, making you moan, making you scream. Admit it.
Celia Villarreal had wanted those things with Ryland Brody, Bitterthorn’s golden boy—and wanted them badly enough to make a fool of herself one idiotic night months ago.
Naughty children shouldn’t touch what they don’t own.
Rejection always stings, but putting a move on Ry had devastating consequences. Now, her regret burns as bright as her need—until Ry, as glorious as ever, makes her an offer that might finally be her ticket out of town.
I’m not your enemy, darlin’. If you give me half a chance, you’ll see that I can be your hero.
When working together leads to grinding all naked-like with the very cowboy who’d seen her at her worst, Celia is afraid she’s made a mistake.
Until the truth comes out.
This is who we are, from now on. Say it. Feel it.
Once Ry’s past motivations come to light, Celia must decide if she can give him another chance, or turn her back on Bitterthorn—and the one man who’s always wanted her—for good.
4 Star review Branded (The Brody Brothers #1) by Stacy Gail
Stacy Gail is a new author to me and this book is about Ryland Brody and Celia Villarreal.
Ry was an arrogant jerk, but he grew on me slowly. Celia got on my nerves a bit with her constant harping on her behaviour towards Ry at her birthday party; we kept hearing about it and it got a little frustrating at times.
I can only imagine the loneliness that Celia was feeling as she slowly realised that people in her home town were avoiding her and treating her as though she had the plague.
Celia has always had a bit of a crush on The Brody Brothers and when Ry offers her a job that could ensure her dream of moving to the city, although hesitant at first, she decides to take the job.
There was certainly a great deal of emotion and angst in Branded, throw in the sizzling chemistry between Ry and Celia and you are in for a ride.
The story was well written and the characters were strong. The supporting characters were just as interesting and I look forward to reading more from Ms.Gail
A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.
