Blog Tour: Fraternizing by C.C. Brown REVIEW


Fraternizing Blog Tour Banner  


This book is a must read! Who doesn't love a forbidden romance? The intense attraction between Marine Corps Sgt. Alex Cruz and Pfc. Cassie Bennett is what starts off the whirlwind of emotions in this book. I was back and forth on whether Alex was worth my adoration that I had for him in the beginning. I loved him, I hated him. There were times where he was a major dick. That is was made this story real for me. The characters were flawed and experienced many internal struggles that made me feel so much for each of them. Cassie was much easier to love. At times she seemed a little naive but was tough as nails when it counted. I really related to her and all of her thought processes. I loved that you get both Alex and Cassie's POV in this story and that it was done right!

There were so many ups and downs. At times I had to put down the book and walk away. I couldn't take the flurry of emotions I was feeling. That lasted two minutes, I had to pick it up and find out what happened.  I was on the edge of my seat throughout the book.

There was a character in this story that we have all met in our life at one time or another. Let me just say I was yelling bitch so many times at her that it was borderline insane.

This book is part of a series. I know some people don't like cliff hangers, but this is how I see it. These characters went through so much in this book there would be room to have a satisfying HEA. The book ends with one chapter of their lives that has come to a close and the rest of their story will be continued in the next book.  That to me is a perfect way to execute a cliff hanger, well done C.C. Brown!

Overall, this is being added to reread list. Must read!
Do not pass go, do not collect $200, READ THE BOOK!
You will be happy you did!
A very deserving 5 stars!

Sometimes rules must be broken.
Sometimes your beliefs are challenged.
Other times... you just have to follow your heart.
For Marine Corps Sgt. Alex Cruz, the Corps' rules and regulations have served as a blueprint for how he should live his life. In his mind, the way to maintaining proper conduct and order relied heavily on the ability of the individual to follow orders without question. Alex was that individual.
Pfc. Cassie Bennett.
She is brand new to the Corps, looking to cement a place in the world for herself after breaking free from the oppressive life she's lived with her mother. Making it in the Corps is her way of showing her mother that she is more than she thinks she is, while also proving to herself she can survive one of life's biggest challenges.
Both Alex and Cassie are tested when an intensely strong attraction develops between them. They feel it, they want it, but one thing stands in their way... The Marine Corps order on Fraternizing. Their lust filled thoughts, their strong and aching cravings for one another, and their conflicted minds lead them on a roller coaster of emotions and feelings that neither can ignore, no matter how hard they try.
Loyalties will be tested, hearts will be broken, and careers will hang in the balance. Can Alex and Cassie keep their forbidden relationship a secret, or will they lose it all by Fraternizing?

 Facebook/Goodreads/Amazon Just a book reading, writing loving, mommy and USMC wife! :) I love to write, even if it isn't what is conventional and makes everyone feel giddy inside. I usually pull from dreams, or ideas that just thrust themselves into my head. I have what some would describe as a dry sense of humor, and I think its conveyed in my writing. I like to think I am a kick ass chick, but I can also be sensitive. I'm learning to grow thick skin, and in this field, it is definitely needed! I won't put anything out that I am not absolutely proud of, but like E.L. James said, "I can't own people's reactions to it." Thanks for reading my work... I do appreciate it!
