Life has a way of shaping you into what it wants you to be, regardless of how much you fight it.
Brantley Prescott is damaged. Scarred by a past she can’t forget. Hiding secrets she’s terrified to share. Searching for a future she doesn’t believe she’ll ever find.
Myles Franco is alone. Burdened by mistakes he’ll never live down. Fostering a deep resentment for the opposite sex. Unleashing his wrath on any girl who gets too close.
Brantley has worked behind the bar long enough to recognize Myles for what he is—a douchebag player with nothing on his mind but keeping a steady stream of girls flowing through his bed. With his messy dark hair, sapphire blue eyes, rock-solid body, and endless tattoos he’s impossible to ignore. But that’s exactly what she plans on doing.
After just one run-in with Brantley, Myles is even more determined to stick to the rules he lives by. She’s mouthy, blunt, and doesn’t back down—no matter how hard he pushes her. She could turn out be the one temptation that drags him down the path he’s been trying to avoid. He won’t let that happen.
Both are content living behind the solid walls they’ve built around themselves. Neither is prepared for what happens when their lives collide.
Due to sexual content and graphic language – 17+ recommended.
I was intrigued by the description and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen between Brantley and Myles. The dual point of view allows the reader to get to know both characters and keeps them relatable or at least provides some understanding. I’m not usually a fan of a read that keeps my frustration level high but this story really worked for me.
Brantley and Myles both have pasts that keep a grip on their present. Brantley keeps secrets and isn’t one to share. Myles also has a past filled with mistakes that he can’t escape. Putting the two of them together, you can’t help but wonder which is going to share themselves first and what will happen next.
Firman keeps the reader turning the pages with unexpected twists and wounded characters that will have you rooting for them. Caught Up in You hits the mark with steamy moments, character growth, periods of angst and sweet touches.
