Welcome back to Brighton, Texas. Where any man can find home.
A DEN OF THEIR OWN
Clem “Bear” Mitchell owns the only diner in Brighton and prefers to be left alone. After growing up in—and barely escaping—one of the toughest motorcycle gangs out of Chicago, he just wants peace. Librarian Rick Johansson is the same. Due to his anxiety, he has always lived on the outskirts of society, finding it far safer to stay in the stacks. But no man is an island, and when the two are thrust together by dangerous events playing out around them, they see that life is better together. The tattooed, bear of a biker and the quiet, unassuming librarian will soon show the residents of Brighton that the local bookworm can teach an old bear new tricks.
Emotional Healing Abounds
As I’d had such resoundingly different reactions to the previous two books in the Brighton Boys series, I wasn’t sure what that meant for me as far as Rick’s Bear went. Turns out that I thoroughly enjoyed it! Oh, and this can absolutely be read as a standalone!
Bear and Rick’s history as acquaintances is woven into the story so smoothly that you fail to remember that you don’t actually know either of these men. The graphic descriptions are once again present, proof that this author knows well how to draw you into her worlds. This title also focuses much more on the sweet and sappy than the hot and spicy, showing a depth of skill in the author.
That said, while there was relationship building, it never really delved deeply, instead skimming along the surface in the leaps and bounds of the timeframe. There are large gaps in time that left me backing up pages to figure out how far it had time-jumped, which made the entire book difficult to get lost in.
The main plot was fairly straightforward, but it was in the subplots where it really took on a shine. Bear’s sister Jenny and her toddler son created many emotions, as did the aftermath of their situation. The suspense aspect took a decided left turn, and I must admit I enjoyed that very much.
By the end, it is crystal clear that although these men have their HFN, there is more to come to finalize their HEA. I’m rating this at 3.5 stars and am curious to read the next book in the series.
