Adult Contemporary Romance
Cover designed by Vitalink
Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.
Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.
Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.
While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.
*MAKE IT A DOUBLE can be read as a stand-alone*
Alyssa and Brody are a lot alike in some respects they both love animals, take responsibility for their actions and are stubborn as all get out. It’s partially why they bond so easily. Plus they have mad crazy chemistry, Sawyer Bennett is definitely a master with that.
I love the story that surrounds them. They’ve know one another for a long time because Alyssa has been friends with Brody’s sister. He’s an ex-convict and she’s an heiress that would rather use her money for good then spend it frivolously. They both have serious ex issues for very different reason. They are super supportive of each other and even if they make mistakes and disagree on something they work it out.
One of my favorite parts of Make it a Double is that Alyssa is the aggressive one. She’s the one pursuing Brody when he decided he doesn’t want to take a chance. I like how she goads him into admitting things about his attraction to her. Plus she doesn’t back down and instigates a lot of their flirtiness.
Another great romance from the mind of Sawyer Bennett and I can’t wait to see which character we follow next in the series.
USA Today Best-Selling author, Sawyer Bennett, is a snarky southern woman and reformed trial lawyer who decided to finally start putting on paper all of the stories that were floating in her head. She is married to a mobster (well, a market researcher) and they have two big, furry dogs who hog the bed. Sawyer would like to report she doesn’t have many weaknesses but can be bribed with a nominal amount of milk chocolate.
