ROGUES is the third book in the Brook Street series by Ava March. This is Robert Anderson and Linus Radcliffe’s book. Both are rogues, but their preferences in bedmates vary. While Linus prefers the company of men, Robert spends his nights with women. However, there is something special about Linus that makes Robert spend the occasional night in Linus’s bed. Their chemistry is potent and undeniable however when Robert proposes that they become exclusive lovers, Linus turns down the offer. In an effort to show him that their relationship is stronger than a regular friendship, Robert does what he can to change his mind and how him just how compatible they are.

While I have enjoyed this series immensely, I have to say that ROGUES is my least favorite of the stories. I just didn’t think that it held the same appeal as the others. I felt that there was a lot of confusion with the names because the author goes between calling them Anderson and Radcliffe one moment and then promptly switches to Linus and Rob later. It helps to clear up any confusion if you just stick with one set of names and keeping them straight throughout the story.

The plot in this book is pretty simply, unlike the other two which to me felt more interesting. I liked the story, but just didn’t think it lived up to my expectations for what I had in mind for Linus and Rob.

About Ava March

I'm Ava March, an author of smoking hot M/M historical erotic romances. I love writing in the Regency time period, where proper decorum is of the utmost importance, but where anything can happen behind closed doors.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I have not read any of this series yet so I’m not sure about the action part. I do get your point about hating it when a book is confusing in some way. It’s hard to pay attention to everything else in the story after that.

Thanks for sharing your review!

I have not picked up any of this series yet but it sounds promising. I too get a bit disappointed when I get into a series several books and then one kind of falls off for me. Hope the rest live up to what you want 😉

Good review. This sounds like a book/series I’d like to read. I’m gonna check into the other two books. And I’ll keep in mind what you mentioned about the name confusion…so that I don’t get caught up in it too. Thx!
