Fraternizing by C.C.Brown


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. Until... 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?

 Steph's Review:
Fraternizing is a military romance featuring the intensely forbidden romance between Pfc. Cassie Bennett and Sgt. Alex Cruz. It is written with Cassie and Alex’s POV, which I LOVE!  

Cassie is strong, sassy, and independent. After finally getting the chance to leave her damaged childhood behind her, she enlists in the military to find her place in life.  She has a strong desire to succeed in the military but jeopardizes it all after Cruz sets her body on fire with one touch while tearing down the walls she has guarding her heart.

Alex is the ultra-alpha male. (I find him sexy as hell.) He is one badass Sergeant. Cocky as hell and takes NO shit form anyone. His entire life revolves around his career. Nothing could take him away from the military until he sets his sight on Cassie.

Cassie and Alex tried desperately to stay away from each other. But they failed miserably. After a little bit of drama filled angst, a few mixed signals from Alex, and a shit load of stolen looks and caresses…. the couple’s chemistry explodes.

The only real flaw I could find was the damn cliffhanger. It wasn’t a WTF cliffhanger; just enough to leave you wanting more but damn….I am growing slightly tired of this trend.

However, the writing flows easily and made for a quick read. I devoured it in a single afternoon.  I can’t wait to read the next book! I need more of Alex and Cassie!

One-click worthy ~~~ 4 STARS~~~

Author Bio:

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!
