REVIEW: Seducing Bran by Jules Barnard

Seducing Bran
by Jules Barnard
Series: Cade Brothers #3

The wrong brother…

Ireland needs a fresh start, and her cousin convinces her to take a chance on a charismatic bad-boy with a wicked boat and a killer body. But when Ireland shows up for the popular Lake Tahoe booze cruise he runs, she finds his handsome older brother at the helm instead.

Bran likes things structured and predictable. Especially after the mistakes he made ten years ago. But his father’s recent passing threw his calm life into chaos, and now Bran is in charge of the family’s five-star restaurants. He’s been grasping to get things back to status-quo ever since.

He has no idea how much more complicated life will get.

Flame-haired Ireland is exactly the type of beautiful woman Bran has programmed himself to avoid. But when she falls into his lap on a booze cruise his brother asked him to cover, the boat isn’t the only thing tossed by the water. Bran’s heart goes overboard as well.

Headstrong Ireland is nothing Bran wants, and everything he needs.

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.



My Thoughts

Not only was this author but this series was new for me. Having said that I wasn’t lost while reading this book although I think I may have gotten a better understanding of Bran had I read the other two books. Since I haven’t yet I can’t say that is a 100% true statement. He is caught in his past though. Because of what happened he has a set of rules that he lives by. Rules that I really wanted to yell at him about at times. He is very attracted to Ireland but because of his “rules” he doesn’t always treat her well.

In fact, she thinks it is because he doesn’t like. I love that she was so strong even though she is the computer nerd she had a strength that was endearing. She could have been a tough cookie but she isn’t. I think she could have made Bran grovel just a bit more but her doing that would have changed who she was at her core.

All in all this was a very sweet story and great read. I am planning on going back and reading the first two before the next one comes out.
