Every small town has that one family that’s more savage than civilized. The ones that are more myth and legend than man. In Old Settlers, Oklahoma that’s the Bomar boys. Wild, reckless and vicious, they skirt the line of criminal and trip over it more often than not. They are their own punchline: white trash but proud beyond compare. Dirty and dangerously sexy, it’s best to steer clear of them or else risk your life… and your heart. These are their stories.
Colt Bomar is a bastard. A dirty, violent piece of white trash, he makes no apologies for who and what he is. He’s never cared what anyone thinks of him and he cares even less about trying to be a better kind of man… until her.
She’s everything he’s not. Good, sweet, gentle, she’s an angel that brightens his dark existence. But he’s seen the kind of destruction a man like him can wreak and he intends to protect her from that, from him, if it’s the only good thing he ever does.
Skylar Holland is no angel. Angels don’t lust after the bad-tempered boy next door when they’re involved with another man. They don’t dream about having the rough hands and sinful mouth of a guy that snaps and snarls at them all over their body. And that’s what she’s wanted from Colt since the moment the troubled Bomar boy said they were nothing but friends.
Friends? With a man that makes her blood boil and her heart melt? No, she wants more. She wants everything. And she’s not about to apologize for going after what she knows they both want. Forever.
Can he overcome his past to give her the future he knows she deserves? or is he doomed to repeat the sins of his father by dragging her down into the darkness with him? And if she treads into the shadows to win him will she even still be the woman he wants when they come out the other side?
*No Apologies is the second book in the Bomar Boys series but can be read as a stand-alone. Each book features one couple and a HEA but do build on each other so they are best read in order.
**Warning** This book contains explicit language, sexual scenes and violence. Though not depicted, mentions of abuse are key to the storyline and can be a trigger for some.
Spoiler Free Review
If you haven’t met Jess Bryant’s Bomar Boys, you are in for a treat. This is a great series with lots of angst and drama and some seriously romantic heroes.
Book two is all about Colt Bomar, the tortured twin brother of Cash Bomar, who is featured in book one.
Colt is deeply protective of those he cares about and will do anything necessary to protect them. That extends to Skylar, the woman he has loved from afar for much of his life. Skylar loves him, too, but Colt is a Bomar. He comes from bad stock and his family is the worst of the worst. So, to protect Skylar, he has kept things between them friends only. But when something changes, Colt finds it harder and harder to stay away.
I just felt from the firsts page to the last page. Emotional and deep, I loved it! The characters are well-developed. The writing is fantastic. The story is great.
