Ryker (Steele Brothers #1) {Book Review}

Title: Ryker {Steele Brothers #1}

Author: Cheryl Douglas

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description

Mackenzie Steele assumed she’d be with her husband forever. He was her best friend, the father of her children. But when weeks turned into months without intimacy, she realized she was too young to feel so old. She wanted to feel desirable again, to find the woman Ryker had fallen in love with twenty years ago. And there was only one way she knew how to do that… by asking him to move out.

Ryker was blindsided when his wife told him she wanted to separate. He knew they’d hit a rough patch, but he’d never allowed himself to imagine his life without her. Now he had no choice. She was happy without him, living life on her own terms, and he knew if he didn’t find a place for himself in her new life, it would be too late to save his marriage

My Review:

    Gosh you don't know how happy I was to be able to review a Cheryl Douglas book again. It's been almost a year since I reviewed a book of her's.  But anyways Mrs. Douglas is one of my go-to authors. I always love her books and characters. Mrs. Douglas is a master at bringing characters to life no matter if their older characters or younger characters. She has a way to make her characters feel like real people, instead of just characters in a book.

     I'm not sure if it's because I'm older or what. But I love the books where Mrs. Douglas' characters are older. I feel like I can relate with them better. Or maybe I've just been reading way too many books with younger characters. 

     Hmmmm Mackenzie,  at times I had mixed feelings about her. At times I found her to be frustrating and stubborn. Other times I could understand where she was coming from.

    I loved Ryker. He's sweet, caring, and sexy. I loved how he wasn't just going to let his marriage go so easily. How he was going to keep showing Mackenzie how much he loved her.

     I really enjoyed this book and am happy to see a new series from Mrs. Douglas. I thought these characters were very enjoyable. I also really felt the ups and downs of these characters. I found I also really like the secondary characters in this book in the form of Ryker’s brothers and can't wait to find out more about them.

    I'm giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5 and can't wait for more of the Steele Brothers.
