Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by: taking what they want, always watching each other's backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce passion.  

There's no code Knox Torren can't break. He knows no limits when it comes to uncovering intel, especially on anyone who crosses his family. But a skip tracer with a sketchy history presents a puzzle he can't solve. When he finally meets the statuesque blonde with the intoxicating Russian accent, he'll try anything to unearth her secrets. 

Darya Volkova has been living under an assumed identity for years. Searching for a job that will take her out of the dangerous life she's built, she has her sights set on Knox: the best hacker in the business. From their first meeting, though, something far more intimate than a professional connection develops.  

Darya must overcome still-healing wounds to trust that Knox will take care of her in all the ways she needs. And Knox will do whatever it takes to make sure whatever—or whomever—she's running from never touches his woman again. 


Tempted & Taken is book four in the Haven Brotherhood series by Rhenna Morgan. The Haven Brotherhood is a group of unconventional alpha males that have become family. These men are possessive, hot, bossy, protective, successful, and well connected. Once they fall, they fall hard.

This one didn’t hook me like the previous books in the series. Knox and Darya where just ok. I never feel for their romance. It just felt like a lot of sex between them, not much else. Most of the book was Knox trying to keep his distance from Darya. When he can’t stay away, well they have sex, and then it’s back to him staying away. After about a month of this, they finally try for a relationship spending time at each others places, but all we see is their strong attraction and their sexy times. Pretty much the romance takes place within a two month period; before they are wanting to get married.

As for the suspense on why Darya is on the run. Well, we don’t see things pick up until much later in the book around the 315 page mark. I get why she ran, but it wasn’t an outstanding suspenseful reason.

Unfortunately; Tempted & Taken didn’t win me over. I wasn’t feeling the romance nor the lead characters. I’ve loved the previous novels released, but not this one. I guess their will be one in a series that just doesn’t work.

Rated: 3 Stars
