Welcome to Brawlers Bar…
They said men only get better with age, distinguished and all that BS, but Archer “Bulletproof” Woods hadn’t gotten better. At fifty-six he was still as much an asshole as he’d been in his twenties and thirties, hell, maybe he was worse. Being a bouncer at a bar called Brawlers suited him just fine and he even tolerated the rest of the crew who’d taken up residence in his house when they’d had nowhere else to go. He was big, growly and homely that kept the parade of men passing through Brawlers at arm’s length for the past decade. One night changed all that.
What he’d thought was happily ever after turned into a nearly five year nightmare. Gregory Charles appeared to have it all, a successful business, sophistication, and a perfect marriage. His friend and best employee, Landon, begged him to come out to a friend’s bar to celebrate Landon’s anniversary. What could it hurt? A night without contemplating the hell that would come down on him the moment he served his husband with divorce papers would do him good. That is until he met the brooding older man staring into a whiskey straight ignoring everyone around him.
Watching for trouble was his job and Gregory screamed mistake as soon as the long, lean and handsome man sat down beside him. But he also knew when someone was in over their head and Gregory needed someone to watch his back. That someone was Bull, only time would tell if he’d have to fight Gregory as much as the man after him.
The Brawlers are back and Bull was the star of JM Dabney's third installment. Although each book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading them in order to understand the full effect of the family dynamics.
Bull was the papa bear of the farm. Leading the charge for all those who lived under his roof and creating a social unite of gruff men, lovers, and extended family.
Gregory was a man in need of a new start and Bull was just the man to give him a new lease. Together Bull and Gregory were sexy and sensual.
Ms. Dabney characterizes her men with abundant personalities and enigmatic lives- true to form, the men live and love hard.
The secondary characters- no longer secondary- were an integral part of the story. Children, in-laws, and loving partners- Bull was a spectacular read holding my attention and making me fall more in love with the men from Brawlers.
