Bruf {Book Review}

Title: Bruf: Out of the Darkness
Series: Westside Skulls MC
Author: Jessie Cooke
Genre: MC Romance

Book Description

Growing up wasn't easy for Bruf. At ten years old he watched his parent's be murdered. From there, he spent time in foster care...and then in the care of his much older brother. Being with family should have been preferable to foster care, but when your brother is the leader of the largest White Supremacist group in the state, life can get pretty confusing...and dangerous, especially for a teenager who falls in love with a mixed-race girl. His brother made that relationship impossible, so Bruf escaped as quickly as he could to the security of the United States Army. At home on leave, Bruf encounters the wrath of his anti-government brother and his crew and that leads him to a new discovery...The Westside Skulls. 

It's been a decade since Bruf joined up with them and life has been good. But when circumstances dictate that Bruf reconnect with his brother, things begin to go sideways...and of course, falling in love with the club president's sister Sabrina didn't do him any favors either. 

Sabrina left California to travel to Haiti with a group of doctor's who dedicate their time and skills to people in need. While believing in the cause, her motivation was more about putting distance between herself, and the man she was in love with. Sabrina wants Bruf, and she knows he wants her, but his loyalty to her brother is like a brick wall that she knows she can't she has to move on.

When she returns to California over a year later, an almost married woman with an explosive secret, things heat up in more ways than one. Ride along with The Westside Skulls and see how this gruff, sexy, loyal, sergeant-at-arms fares in both love and war.

Book 3 in the Westside Skulls MC Series. 
This is a Standalone Romance Novel but characters from the previous novels, Wolf Prequel and Wolf 2, are in this story, and will appear in future books in the series. 
HEA and No cliffhanger. 
Intended for Mature Readers.

The Westside Skulls MC Series is about members of the MC club, their friends and associates. 
Each story, while focused around one main character, is not necessarily about a Westside Skulls club member, but the story is related to Skulls members and the club.

My Review:

So this book is the third book in this series and it follows Bruf and Sabrina. Though this book can be read as a stand alone. I would highly suggest at least reading the first book in this series so you could understand these characters relationships.

Ummm lets start with Bruf..... Now I'm actually thinking his name was actually Bruf and that wasn't a road name. Because there wasn't any mention of another name. Bruf hasn't exactily had the easiest life: first his parents were a bit strang and parnoid, than he watched his parents get murdered, he has an older brother who leads a whilte supremacist group. But he found a place for himself with the Skulls though he hasn't exactly been honest with them. Look I've liked Bruf since the beginning of the Westside Skulls series. I think he's a good guy that was handed a sh*ty hand in the family department. 

Sabrina..... Sabrina.... Oh Sabrina.... I'm honestly not sure on Sabrina. We meet Sabrina back in the first book of Wolf's when she first meets her brother Wolf. Than she basically takes off for a year for a good cause, but also because her brother basically pushes her to do it to keep her away from Bruf. I just honestly have mixed feelings about her, at times I would really like her. At others I found her to be stuck up, judgemental, whiney, and a bit egotistical. 

Look I had been excited about this book. But I find myself having mixed feelings about it. I don't always find the need to stick two characters in a book together, just because one character is either a sister or brother of another character in a book or series. And I kind of feel like authors are always doing that nowadays, oh this person is this person's best friend so I better stick them with their brother or sister. I guess I just didn't really feel a connection between Bruf and Sabrina. Other than that this book of course will take you on a wild ride. 

I'm giving this book 3.5 Stars out of 5!!!!
