Courage means rising up to defend your beliefs…
or daring to question them.
Erin McIntyre was captivating, but forbidden
His professional subordinate
The embodiment of unearned privilege
The daughter of his sworn enemy
Isaac Maat was impossible to read
Smart, ambitious, and emotionally detached
Hotter than anyone’s boss should ever be
And definitely hiding something…
He told himself that getting to know her would help him take down her father.
She told herself that getting under his skin would distract her wrecked heart from its misery.
Neither predicted their private war would lead to an intimate battle in which the victor would be the first one to SURRENDER.
I had been waiting on this book so long, I forgot why. I even forgot who Erin was. I had to ask a friend! That makes me sad because Brave and Tammara Weber’s entire Contour of the Hearts series is so good! I love her writing and the world she has created.
Brave was a slow burn romance. The characters, Erin and Isaac, started off as co-workers. Isaac was Erin’s boss, and he wasn’t her biggest fan. This spurred Erin into action. Their feelings built slowly throughout the story. I loved all of their moments together. Those lead to some very big ah-ha moments for Erin. The story was in her point of view, so those moments were extremely important.
While I loved Erin and Isaac together, the romance didn’t feel like the biggest part of the story. Erin coming into her own and learning about herself and her family took up a lot of the story. I really liked that story line. Isaac was woven into it, and how everything played out was very cool.The social and political aspects of Brave were important and relevant to life today.
The only thing I wanted more of from Brave was time with Erin and Isaac together. I didn’t get enough of them as a couple figuring out their lives together. I wanted more than just their attraction and the blooming of their love. I wanted to be deep within their bond.
It may have taken years to finally get Erin’s story, but it was well worth the wait. Tammara Weber gave her a story that showed Erin’s strengths and her heart. I loved reading it.
