Hendrix - Book Review





Blurb:

Hendrix Caldwell wants nothing more than to revitalize the family bar—and tear down every last reminder of his no-good father. But business isn’t the only thing on his mind. An explosive encounter with a stranger at a charity masquerade is just the distraction he craves, with no names and no strings attached. For Hendrix, sex is casual, and love is a four-letter word. His commitment is to his brothers, his bar, and his bike. So why can’t he stop thinking about the naughty Cinderella who rocked his world, then left him—and her panties—behind?
 
Olivia Hemmingway knows fairytales are for little girls. Drowning in debt and hiding a shameful secret, she won’t be saved by a knight in tattooed armor, no matter how mind-blowing their one-night stand may have been. Olivia never expects to meet her masked lover again. But when she takes a job at Hendrix Caldwell’s bar, her sexy new boss seems all too familiar. And once the lights go out and the music is turned up, the sparks between them burn hotter than ever.

I'm not sure how long ago I bought this book, but the cover captured me.  Yesterday I started reading it, last night I couldn't sleep so I got 85% through it.  Did I like it?  Yes.  Did I love it?  Maybe.  

Hendrix and his two brothers just lost their mom, they are the only family each other has.  And like any good family, they stick together no matter what.  They follow the code, I've got your back.  



Olivia is a social work, just scraping by. She needs a part time job to help with some bills around the house.  She can't rely on her mom or dad, they have their own issues to deal with.  Plus there is this messy bit about her past.   

Livi applies for a job at Hendrix bar, only to find out they have a shared past too.  Sparks start to fly when Hendrix founds out, because he just can't shake this girl.  But there is something about her, he wants to protect and love her.  It's new ground for him too.  But Hendrix throws his entire heart into the endeavor while Livi is more cautious and careful.  But can love win?  Can Hendrix show her that he does in fact love her to the core?

This book was good, but didn't WOW me.  I felt like something was missing from Hendrix.  He wasn't 100% Alpha male.  I get that he was being careful with Livi, I get that.  Plus the whole thing with Bryce and who was watching her was never resolved.  Or if she was just freaking herself out.  Some points in the story were slow and some moved quick.  The sex was descriptive and good.  But Livi and her snorting when she laughed - C'mon!  I enjoyed it more than I didn't.  

Will I read book #2?  Maybe.   If I remember about it.
