Brix Ward is a Grade A prick.
He’s arrogant, spoiled, and self-centered. As the lead singer of A Rebels Havoc, he’s used to women falling over themselves for a chance to tame the wild bad boy.
Except for me.
I still remember the boy I grew up with. The one who went out of his way to make my life a living hell. I did my best to avoid him at all costs.
Imagine my surprise when our parents announced they had eloped, then left me to live with my new stepbrother. Alone.
Now, no matter what I do, there’s no escaping him. He’s always there, tempting me, provoking me. Every moment of every day. The more we’re around each other, the more the heat between us begins to rise.
If he thinks he can hurt me again, he’s dead wrong.
I won’t let him be the one to destroy me, even if it breaks my heart.

Enemies to lovers, a sexy rock star and a forbidden stepbrother romance to top to it off. We get the promise of that and so much more in the first book in A Rebel’s Havoc series by Brooke O’Brien.
“There’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s about to be set on fire.”
Ivy needs money for school so to save up she heads to a place she’d rather not for the summer…home. While she is excited to see her Mom and her bestie, she’s not all that excited to be back in the town she grew up in. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do, right? And that’s how unfortunately within the first few hours of being home she runs into the one person she dreaded seeing most. The bane of her very existence…Brix Ward.
“To say I hated Brix Ward would be a mild understatement. If he were to go up in flames standing in front of me, I wouldn’t bother to offer him the glass of water in my hand.”
Brix doesn’t recognize Ivy at first but she knows right off the bat that the super sexy lead singer of A Rebel’s Havoc is still the same entitled jackass he’s always been. He thinks he can have any girl he wants bent over and ready with one of his signature sexy smiles but Ivy refuses to be another notch on his bed post. What happens when they discover they will be living under the same roof and with Ivy’s new job be seeing a lot more of each other? Their “I love to hate you but really want you” relationship starts to get a little intense and a whole lot of steamy. Is it possible for bad boy Brix to really change his ways for Ivy or will the secret he is keeping from her ruin their chance at love?
“I’ll never let him see me broken. He doesn’t deserve to know he got through to me.”
I loved the whole idea of this book. I am a sucker for an enemies to lover read and the fact that we also got a sexy rock star and a stepbrother romance all tied up in a pretty package pulled me right in. That cover…yes, please. I liked most of this book but sadly I just didn’t love it. I think it’s that I need a little more of the enemy part in my books. Ivy was a good character but she gave in to Brix so easily and he shed his bad boy persona just as quickly. I felt it was missing a lot of that much needed build up that I have come to love in these types of stories. The whole push and pull of the enemies to lovers. It just escalated too quickly for me so I felt disconnected from the characters and the story. I did however love some of the secondary characters and hope Ivy’s BFF gets her own book next. I am looking forward to seeing how this series plays out so I will definitely be reading more.
“I think you were meant to come into my life.”
