Review – Tysin by Brooke O’Brien

Tysin; A Rebels Havoc #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: September 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Brother’s Best Friend/Second Chance/Rock and Roll Romance

Author: Brooke O’Brien

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars


Tysin is a heartbreaking, second chance story with a lot of ups and downs.

Tysin and Kyla have a lot of history, aside from just their brief summer fling. They grew up together and Kyla’s brother is one of Tysin’s best friends. These kind of forbidden tropes are always heart-pounding.

When the Rebels Havoc need a tour manager, last minute, Madden-the drummer-suggests his sister, Kyla, for the job. Even though she knows it will test her limits, being close to the one man who broke her heart, she takes it. She’s now engaged to a perfect man and her best friend will be on board since she’s dating the lead singer, Brix. Everything should be fine. No problem at all. Cool.

Tysin is anything but cool having a happily engaged Kyla living on his tour bus. He lashes out, treats her horribly, and does everything he can to make her life miserable, but that’s because he’s been miserable since he let her go two years ago. It’s not really her fault, he’s damaged and wouldn’t be good for her, but he doesn’t like seeing her happy with someone else either. He just can’t seem to help himself when it comes to Kyla.

Tysin’s story is full of heartbreak and reconnection and I enjoyed how Brooke covered several sensitive topics.  It may have taken a while for this book to be published, but it was worth waiting for the perfect story.

Tysin Briggs is a player.

He’s cocky, selfish, and sexy as sin. I’ve heard the rumors, and it’s no secret, he’s just as talented in the bedroom as he is on the guitar.

As the lead guitarist for A Rebels Havoc, and my brother’s best friend, Tysin has heartbreak written all over him. We were asking for trouble sneaking around behind my brother’s back. It still didn’t stop me from spending the summer with him or from falling in love with him.

Two years have passed since he destroyed my heart, crushing it into a million pieces. A lot has changed since then, including the ring on my finger. When my brother asks for my help filling in as the manager of their sold-out tour, it’s an opportunity I can’t refuse.

I should’ve known the past wouldn’t stay in the past.

But what I didn’t count on was how hard it would be to resist him.

Author’s Note: Tysin is a standalone and can be read without reading any other books in the A Rebels Havoc series. If you prefer to read in order, start with Brix as the stories do interconnect.

*Please be aware, this book does contain subjects that may be sensitive for some readers, including pregnancy loss and cheating. If you’re looking for a safe story, this book is not for you.
