Title: Brock
Author: Dani René
Genre: Erotic Romance
Type: Book 3 of 4 from Four Sons series
POV: First Person – Multiple
Expected Publication: August 3, 2018



I am strong, athletic, and son to a man I always wanted to be.
I had made plans, thought I was on that path, and then a bullet stopped not just my father’s heart, but mine too.

I’ve been living a life I’m not meant to.
I want more. I want to escape.
And I found someone who’s given me a love I never thought possible.

My name is Brock Pearson.

I am a free spirit who found happiness in an unexpected place.
People assume I’ll be another heir to our empire, but my heart belongs elsewhere.



ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

Brock Pearson and Ethan Kingston grew up with silver spoons. As the sons of two powerful men, they never needed anything that their family couldn’t provide. But a shared grief brought them closer together and made them realize how much they really needed each other.

Camilla Alvaro was fully aware of Brock and Ethan’s reputation around campus. When she caught their eyes, she was far from deterred by their attention. But she might not be prepared to get entangled into their lives.

Even though we do argue, there’s something so much more between us—something I never knew existed. He’s brought me out of the darkness that consumed me.

I never liked Brock in Four Fathers but certain aspect of him started to catch my attention in the first two books of this series. I like how he was the most emotional of the brothers. He took what happened to their family the hardest and that vulnerability made me like him.

No girl has made my body shudder with need as much as he does.

Ethan was there when his best friend needed him the most. Compared to Brock, he was the more gentle and carefree one. They balanced each other well in their friendship.

I care about the girl. I want to make her happy, to see her smile, and show her pleasure.

Honestly, I’m not sure what’s Camilla’s purpose in this story. I didn’t care for her at all because she felt like an unnecessary third wheel. Unless she and/or her family have significance in the next book, I really can’t see the need for her character.

I love that I could feel the connection and the emotions between Brock and Ethan. But Camilla suddenly came into their lives as if she had been there all along. I can understand lust, but selling it as love was not convincing to me. Also, there was no conflict in the storyline, especially considering their unconventional ways. However, good thing is the sex scenes were scorching.

Brock is a story of taking chances and staying true to oneself. I’m curious to see how the series will wrap up in the final book.

Final Verdict:

Nixon (Four Sons, #1) by Ker Dukey Hayden (Four Sons, #2) by J.D. Hollyfield Brock (Four Sons, #3) by Dani René
