Just Reviewed - A Brutal Tenderness (A Terrible Love #2) by Marata Eros

A Brutal Tenderness (A Terrible Love, #2)A Brutal Tenderness by Marata Eros
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with an arc in exchange for a fair and honest review. Expected publication date:  August 26th.

For two years he has stalked her…
For two years he has blamed her…
                              For two years he has hated her…
Jewell MacLeod’s life was in some serious danger.  She changed her name, appearance and runs away after her best friend Hope is brutally murdered. Jewell spins a web of lies in order to conceal her identity from the psycho killer who wants to get her next. It turns out she is not the only one who is telling lies. Everyone around her has an agenda and Jewell has no idea.

Warning:  Read A Terrible Love (book #1) first. A Brutal Tenderness (A Terrible Love #2) is a companion novel told in Agent “Cas” Steel’s POV.  Hot as hell alpha FBI agent Cas is hell bent on avenging the death of his cousin Hope.  Cas blames her death on her so called best friend Jewell.  After getting to know Jewell he is torn.  She isn’t the spoiled selfish bitch who did nothing as she watched his cousin murdered.    Cas never expected to fall hard and fast for his “live bait”…while on the job to catch a serial killer.

Marata Eros spins a wicked tail of romance and suspense. This tension filled novel takes some great twists and turns through Cas’s eyes… as well as Hope’s killers. I have to say…I was glad I re-read book one first or I might not have truly appreciated Cas’s POV as much as I did.  I found ABT to be a little regurgitated from book one (some of the dialogue and retelling of a story) -- but that was ok with me since I LOVED book one. Cas’s POV was great. I loved getting to dig deep into the steamy recesses of his alpha male/bad boy brain. The writer did a great job unraveling the back story. If you loved A Terrible Love and Cas…then you will love getting more Cas in A Brutal Tenderness. 3.75 – 4 Cas-stars.
