Brick (Cooper Construction, Book 1) by Jen Davis: Release Blitz + Review

Title: Brick
Series: Cooper Construction #1
Author: Jen Davis
Genre: Dark MC Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 5, 2019

I’m used to getting my hands dirty. During the day it’s mud and grime on the construction site. At night…it’s the blood I spill.

A drug lord’s enforcer does what needs to be done. It’s my obedience, my loyalty to the boss that keeps my family alive. 

I know I’m teetering on the edge. I’m losing my humanity, I can feel it. It’s changing me, and it’s only a matter of time before the darkness takes over.
Then I meet her. Liv. The only person who sees past my busted knuckles and brutal exterior. She sees…me. 
But being with me will get her killed. The only way I can keep her safe is by staying away. Until her own actions catapult her into the center of my world—a world which will swallow her whole. 
Now I’m forced to be the ruthless bastard I’ve been for so long. Only this time it’s not to destroy…but to defend.


In this story we meet Brick and Olivia. 

Brick doesn't just have skeletons in his closet, its completely constructed out of them. Given a bad hand in life he does what he can. 

Olivia is a sweet and strong woman who knows what she wants and not evens Bricks misguided morals or her brothers disapproval could stop her from being with him. 

They finally decided to give love a try. Which proved to the best and worst decision they could've ever made. 

Secretly gallivanting out of town so no one sees them together, Brick thinks hes keeping her safe. When she tries to save a boy at school with so much potential but so little opportunity that's when things turn deadly for both of them. 

Trying to save his grandma and now the woman he loves Brick must face his fears and confront the tyrant who controlled his life for so long. 

This book has action, sex and slow burn sweet love story. This is a 4 feather read. The only thing that made this book a 4 feather instead of a 5 feather read is that I wanted more background on why he began working with Sucre and why he allowed him to treat him so badly. This part felt incomplete for me. I enjoyed the book immensely but still couldn't shake the feeling that something was missing.


Jen started her love affair with romance novels, first as a reader, then as a reviewer and blogger. She launched the Red Hot Books blog in 2010 and jumped into Book Twitter shortly after.

She is happily married to her high school sweetheart. Together, they’re raising two kids, a cat, and a dog who is afraid of his own shadow.

Jen spends her days working as television journalist and her nights curled up with a good book.
