Brix; A Rebels Havoc #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Brooke O’Brien

Review Rating:




Brix is a surprising explosive love story. An enemies to lovers/step-sibling story that find out they have to share the same roof one summer when their parents suddenly elope.

Brix isn’t the worst guy around, he’s just had a messed up upbringing. An absentee father who goes through wives and Ivy’s mother is his current flavor of the year. When Ivy returns home for the summer she was just expecting to stay with her mother, earn some money for school, and keep things low key. She didn’t expect to room with the one person who made her life hell back in high school or her mother to spend most of the summer vacationing with her new husband leaving her alone with the bane of her existence.

When Brix doesn’t recognize Ivy when she rolls back into town, he makes a bet with this friends that not only will she end up in his bed before summer ends, but she will leave town with a broken heart as well. Brix never thought that with all the time they spend alone together that they might actually grow close and the person who might get their heart broken when she leaves might be him.

The relationship between Ivy and Brix is hot and emotional. They don’t realize how close they are growing to each other as the summer progresses, but can it really go anywhere when they began as enemies? Brix knows he needs to eventually come clean about everything, but will time run out before the truth catches up to him?

Overall Brix is a good story and a good starting point for more books in this band.


There’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s about to be set on fire.

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.
