ALWAYS EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED
Ahhh, the good life. Goodbye Navy SEALs, hello rehabbing a rundown lake house he inherited. Being a former Lieutenant Commander will come in handy for Brick Matthews. He gets to boss himself around while tearing down a dilapidated shed and re-roofing his new home, among a hundred other things.
First he has to get rid of the smarmy real estate agent who’s been trying to buy the property for years. Sounds easy, until Brick uncovers layers of secrets, including attempted murder.
In the middle of the intrigue is a buttoned-down CEO with amazing blue eyes.
Roman Furrow is so far from the type of man who hits Brick’s radar, he doesn’t see what’s coming until it’s almost too late.
Having never given away his heart before, Brick is damn sure not going to let anyone or anything hurt the man he’s fallen for. He’s been trained for this – he’ll protect him with his life.
A Note From the Publisher
M. Tasia is a M/M romance author who lives in Ontario, Canada. She's is a dedicated people watcher, lover of romance novels, 80's rock, and happily-ever-afters (once the MCs are put through their paces, of course), who grew up with a love of reading. She's a firm believer that everyone deserves to have love, excitement, and crazy hot romance in their lives. Love should be celebrated and shared.
"I absolutely loved this book and couldn’t put it down!! A fabulous start to a new series. Brick and Roman are on the opposite ends of the spectrum but there is an undeniable chemistry between the two. The only thing is that Roman’s father wants Brick’s property that was left to him by his aunt. When crap really hits the fan and he has to protect Roman, Brick’s military buddies lend a helping hand. Can they protect Roman from an unknown threat? Will love really conquer all?"
"Another hit by this author. I loved her Brighton Boys and Gates of Heaven series and was so glad to see another series, Fire Lake, start. And, this first book was definitely not a disappointment. I actually hated to get to the end. All of the characters were well done and the mystery outstanding. Well done. Can hardly wait for the next one."
"This was such a great read!! Filled with action, mystery and family!!!! I loved every moment of this books. Lots of laughs too!!!"
Average rating from 7 members
Brick is the first book in the Fire Lake series by M. Tasia. It is a contemporary romance novel with a suspenseful plot and a slow-burn romance.
The story follows Brick Matthews, a former Navy SEAL who has inherited a lake house in Fire Lake, Maine. Brick is looking forward to a quiet life of rehab and fishing, but his plans are quickly derailed when he discovers that the real estate agent who has been trying to buy his property is up to something shady.
Brick's investigation leads him to Roman Furrow, a buttoned-down CEO with amazing blue eyes. Roman is the last person Brick expects to be attracted to, but he can't deny the chemistry between them.
As Brick and Roman get to know each other, they also uncover a web of secrets and lies that threatens to destroy both of them. Brick must use his SEAL training to protect Roman and bring down the bad guys.
Brick is a well-written and engaging novel with complex and relatable characters. The suspense plot is gripping, and the romance is both heartwarming and steamy. I especially enjoyed the way Tasia explores the themes of love, trust, and redemption.
If you're a fan of contemporary romance novels with a suspenseful twist, I highly recommend Brick. It's a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.
