Claim and Protect by Rhenna Morgan blurb

Rhenna Morgan has done it again. She has written a book full of intense emotion, with a solid, protective man, and a strong woman. This book will give you all the feels, the warm gooey, romantic, curl up in a velvety blanket with hot chocolate feels.

I adored Claim & Protect. Of all the books in the series so far, this is my favorite. It was so emotional that at times I felt like my heart was sitting in my throat and I couldn't breathe as I read. I may have put down the book a few times while reading because I needed a breather to get my emotions under control. The reason for all of that is Trevor. Trevor is everything a girl dreams a man would be. Someone who is sweet, kind, strong, protective. Someone who will tell the truth, be honorable, be a good role model and a shining example of the kind of man you'd want to bring home to meet your mother. Sure, Trevor has a dark side as well and along with his brothers they skate the edge of legal sometimes, but through it all, they do what is right according to their own moral compass, a compass which points in the right direction. But these men have each other's backs and they are stronger together. I can honestly say, Trevor has melted me into a puddle of goo. He's everything that makes a girl take a deep breath, pause and sigh longingly.

I loved Natalie too. Despite being beaten down, she's strong and protective in her own way. Certainly very protective of her seven year old son Levi, who, by the way, is adorable. Natalie is wary of getting into a relationship with another man thinking she made the wrong choices when it came to her ex and she's a bad judge of character. I'm glad Trevor is persistent and charming, and he gets past all her resistance. Towards the end, Natalie does something which I knew she was going to do and it has things heading in a rather unpleasant direction. However, I liked the way Ms Morgan handled the situation and what she had Natalie do. I've seen other stories where it's all on the guy no matter what and that makes me mad because c'mon, if you mess up, you own up to the mess you make, and if the heroine is in the wrong, she should take responsibility and own what she did or said, and let's face it, this is a romance. It takes two to tango. In this instance, Ms Morgan made me very happy with how everything worked out. She showed such maturity in both Natalie and Trevor. It was wonderful.

And a special shout out to Levi. He is a great kid and he stole the show, well ... stole the show after Trevor that is. I loved the fact that Trevor provided Levi with a strong male role model in his life. It was adorable the way he modeled himself after Trevor and followed his example for good manners and the right way to treat a lady. If Trevor along wasn't enough to melt your heart, Trevor with Levi will.

As always, the bond between the Haven brothers blew me away or turned me to mush, depending on which day of the week it is. I love these brothers. The way they are with each other. The way they stand by each other. The way they look out for one another. They are stronger because they have each other and I like that. And even when they have baggage and when things are rough, they stand and meet it head on. Sure, they may butt heads at times, but in the end, their love and bond win out. If only to read about the brothers, I hope there are plenty more Men of Haven stories.

  10. Trevor made such a great hero didn't he? I just loved this book so much. And Levi was darling, so adorable especially in how he was always emulating Trevor. This author has done a great job with this series, and each book just gets better.
