(Caldwell Brothers #1)
MJ Fields & Chelsea Camaron
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.
HENDRIX is a story of a man who grew up with a crappy dad and how he overcomes that gloomy shadow. His dad made bad choices that not only affected Hendrix and his brother’s lives but ruined Hendrix’s mom’s life. Now, as an adult, Hendrix is fueled with resentment for his father and the treatment of his mother. Determined to not become his father he makes sure to be the opposite of him every way that counts.
Hendrix owns and runs a bar. His life was going along smoothly until he meets a down and out woman – Olivia. Olivia is struggling to make ends meet. She’s a hard worker and lands a job at Hendrix’s bar where her life begins to dramatically change.
You know how there are things that stick out to you in books?! Well, I had that experience with this book. Olivia rubs her butt a lot in the book. She wears underwear that having sayings (such as Classy and Fabulous) on them and by rubbing her butt it reminds of her to be strong and confident. She refers to them as her empowerment panties. After the first few times, it got to be annoying and a little weird because she didn’t just do it in the privacy of her own home but whenever she needed a boost of confidence.
I didn’t connect with this book like I had hope. Maybe it was the timing of when I read it. Prior to this book I had just finished an amazing 5-star book. #bookhangover My friend suggested I continue on with the series because she really liked book 2. I may in the future but right now I have some other books on my reading schedule.
