Title: Zeke (The Powers That Be #2)

Author: Harper Bentley

Release Date: March 31, 2015

Find on Goodreads

Zeke Powers should’ve come with a warning label.

He was hot.

He was sexy.

And he was a bad boy through and through.

The things he said to me had me blushing and my toes curling.

But he was someone I totally didn’t need walking into my life, screwing up the plans I’d made and turning my world upside down.

Although I’d been living a no-frills, no-fun existence, I felt it was necessary to get where I was going. Keep your eye on the prize and all that.

But Zeke was determined to prove to me that what I desired most—him—was just what I needed.

New adult. Not recommended for readers under 17.

Something drew me to Scarlett. She's had some pretty crappy boyfriends, been cheated on more than once. Of course she's not going to be trusting. The man that wants her heart is going to have to prove he deserves it. I liked her determination. She's given up on men, choosing to stay focused on her life goal. That is until Zeke came into her life. 

Lucky for Scarlett, Zeke perfectly balances his determination to get Scarlett, without going too far and scaring her away. He was very patient and understanding once he knew her past. He also supported her life goals, like a good partner should. 

My only complaint of this book is that it seemed to end to abruptly for me. I feel like I needed more time to feel like Scarlett had proven that she was over her fear of being cheated on and that they would get their HEA.  I also wanted to know more about Zeke's future and where Scarlett fits into all of it. Hopefully we will see more of this amazing couple in the next books in the series. 

I can't wait to read more about these amazing Power's brothers.

Gable (The Powers That Be #1)

Released December 2014

Gable Powers had all the makings of everything my father had ever warned me about: a reputation that was anything but stellar, a dirty mouth that had me shivering at the things he uttered in my ear, and a body (oh, God, that body) that was covered in tattoos, all of which added up to a solid ten-point-oh on the bad-boy scale.

The first time I met him, I instantly loathed him.

The second time was even worse.

He was a jerk. He was an ass.

He had secrets.

He was nothing I thought I ever wanted.

So why couldn’t I resist him?

New adult. Not recommended for readers under 17.
