I'm not sure I've ever come across a hero as full of crap as Brock "Brick" Avery, but the thing that makes him unbearable also makes him a character who stands out. Brick is happy with his achievements and all too aware of his importance, which he wields as a weapon over those unfortunate enough to cross him.
Brick House 2 is an interesting look at mature love. Brick and his empress, Korah, are in their mid-forties and are king and queen of their separate construction empires. Things get complicated when Brick hires Korah's company as a sub-contractor on the multi-million dollar project he's been contracted to do. Family dynamics play a big part in this story, along with lessons to do with pride, humility, taking the high road and knowing when to back down.
The characters are varied and each has their own thing going on, which is great if a sequel is in the offing. The heat between Brick and Korah is enough to break the mercury out of a thermometer and these two do take the reader on some wild rides.
If you haven't read anything by this author as yet and like a steamy read with intense characters, Brick House 2 will suit your taste.
