Blog Tour & Giveaway: Fraternizi​ng by C.C. Brown

~ Synopsis ~

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?

~ Our Review ~
3.5 Star Review by Annie

After reading the synopsis on this book I really, really wanted to like this book. Not only was there a forbidden love affair, but there was also men in uniforms. Nothing is yummier than a man in uniform, especially a hot powerful soldier.
The sexy scenes were sexy. I mean smoking hot. I mean tummy turning, panty wetting, breath holding HOT! The only problem is that there was just too much dialog and descriptive paragraphs that kind of made the other scenes a tad bit boring. I would catch myself skipping around the pages to get to good parts.

Cassie and Alex met one night at a bar. They shared a sexy magical kiss. Then they we're quickly separated and forced to part ways. Never imagining two days later they would get the chance to see each other again. She was a new marine learning her job and he was a higher ranking marine instructor. Rules and laws prevent this kind relationship from happening. Can they survive the six weeks without breaking the rules? Or do their careers and lives crash and burn around them?

The drama was plentiful, the sex was hot but the storyline was yawn worthy. Then just as the story started to pick up it ends, with a cliff *sigh* hanger. Well crap!  Finally I am getting into it and wanting more and now I have to wait for the next book?!?  FML! This book is definitely a 3.5 Star book.  Go out and get your copy and get to know the sexy Sgt Alex Cruz. Trust me he is one I will remember for a long, long time!


~ About the Author ~

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!
