The Men of Haven: fierce passion, unyielding loyalty.
Especially when it comes to their women.
A powerful man
Axel McKee abandoned his musical career years ago in favor of becoming a power player on the music scene. His dreams of the spotlight are over—and he’s better off for it. Working with his Haven brothers and building their empire is enough for him.
One who commanded attention with nothing more than a look
And then came Lizzy. A dynamic, beautiful powerhouse of a performer unlike any he’s seen or heard before. Her presence leaps off stage and into the heart of anyone who watches her sing. Axel wants her. Wants to help her and collaborate with her… But more than anything, he wants to be with her.
And every ounce of his attention was locked on her
Two things are immediately obvious: Lizzy’s been burned before, and earning her trust will be Axel’s biggest challenge yet. If he can get this fierce, stubborn, talented woman to see the passion and care that he’s offering, he might get a chance at a new dream—sharing the spotlight with the woman he loves.

Down and Dirty is the sixth book in the Haven Brotherhood series and man I am loving this series so much, its similiar to a MC setting but not really a full MC. But there is a strong brotherhood, and I just love the two “mothers” that these men took care of and didn’t judge their lifestyle. They are all alpha like personalities but Axel is full on ALPHA Male and this book introduces some BDSM into the relationship. I honestly couldn’t remember if I had seen signs in the beginning that Axel was into BDSM from the previous books and even though I really enjoyed this book BDSM elements aren’t really my favorite aspects to see in the bedroom to be honest but I did feel that Rhenna Morgan did a good job with introducing this into the story.
Our heroine is a rock singer, and she and her band do what they can to make do. Izzy had a bad experience with a man she was with that took advantage of her trust and betrayed her and even though its been years, she still doesn’t date and doesn’t have much interest in men until she meets Axel who gets her a job at his club and seeks more than just a business relationship….he wants her in a long term relationship and isn’t shy about it, and even introduces her to his family. But it will take some doing to show her that she can trust him and they there is something electric and worth investing in.
We see the fears that Izzy has, but we also see the determination that Axel has in showing the one woman he cares about how a good man treats his girl and I love that he is so in tune with her wants and desires and knows what she needs and deserves. There is some fun bantering that goes on between them as well as seeing them explore some kinky stuff in the bedroom. Now its not super strong BDSM but its definitely a element of the story so if you love BDSM….you definitely need to grab this book up. But outside of the bedroom, is where their relationship really shines and we see it in the nuances of their relationships and how well matches Izzy and Axel are for each other.
There are some crazy and fun times with the brotherhood of course and as the reader you feel the magnetism between these two. I have had such a fun time with this series and I honestly never want it to end. Its been a blast to see each member find love and the emotion that is displayed in this book is simply unforgettable and I would like to say that this author is simply wonderful to read. There is no one like her that writes such a compelling story that she does and this book has everything you would want in a romance.
Overall I found Down and Dirty to be packed with sharp wit, delicious alpha males, a relatable heroine and a romance that is full of spice and sweet to quench any palette!! TRULY WELL DONE!
