Book Review: The Brute and I by Suzanne Smith

*Disclaimer: I received this book in exchange for an honest review

Reading this book, in my mind, felt like a dramatic play


When Marco struts into Gigi’s grill, Alex wonders if she has found the one. When he takes the seat next to her and strikes up a conversation, She is immediately aroused by the heat of his animal magnetism. There is something she sees in his vulnerable, piercing green eyes that touches her heart. She realizes that she wants this handsome man to be more than just her bedmate. She wants him to be her soulmate.

Marco was instantly smitten the moment he fixed his eyes on Alex. There was something about her warm, sympathetic gaze that filled him with hope. Maybe he had a chance to overcome the bitterness and despair that had blighted his life. Perhaps finally some measure of happiness is within his grasp.

The love between them quickly blossoms, but there is a dark cloud on the horizon. For no reason Marco can see, Alex suddenly becomes sullen and withdrawn. He worries that she is slipping away from him. The idea of losing her affection and being forced to retreat back into the cold, black, pit of despair, is more than he can stand. He only knows one way to deal with the pain he is feeling.

Can their love survive the turmoil and grow into something good once more?

If you like books with emotionally (and possibly mentally) sensitive guys, this is the book for you. I am still getting used to these types of books. The story was very well written, and obviously thought about to a “T”. I loved her words, I loved the story, I loved Alex, but I just cannot shake Marco lol. In the beginning, I thought he was going to kill her, and then I find out how sensitive he is. Like I said, if you love the sensitive man with a good backstory and a woman who is stubborn, mixed together to form one of those relationships that are obviously meant to be, and second chances, this is the book for you.

I give Suzanne 4/5. 4 stars for the overall story, and the words she had spread out on the pages, and opening my eyes to a whole different character.
