Publisher's Summary

There's a fine line between love and hate, and it's about to be set on fire.

Brix Ward is a grade-A prick.He's arrogant, spoiled, and self-centered. As the lead singer of A Rebels Havoc, he's used to women falling over themselves for a chance to tame the wild bad boy. Except for me. 

I still remember the boy I grew up with. The one who went out of his way to make my life a living hell. I did my best to avoid him at all costs. Imagine my surprise when our parents announced they had eloped, then left me to live with my new stepbrother. Alone. 

Now, no matter what I do, there's no escaping him. He's always there, tempting me, provoking me. Every moment of every day. The more we're around each other, the more the heat between us begins to rise. If he thinks he can hurt me again, he’s dead wrong. I won’t let him be the one to destroy me, even if it breaks my heart.

Author's note: This is book one in the A Rebels Havoc series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone and has a HEA. Due to strong sexual content, coarse language, and mature subject matter, this book is not suitable for listeners under the age of 18.

Steamy, Angsty. Taboo

This is a really fun enemy to lover, forbidden stepbrother romance. Brix and Ivy have a touchy past but find themselves thrown back together one summer when Ivy comes home to save money for college and surprise they aren't just enemies anymore their parents are married. They push each other's buttons, getting under one another's skin and they can't stay away from one another.

The narration is really good.

Enemies to Lovers!

I am new to Brooke O'Brien's books and I loved this enemies to lovers story. The story keeps you engaged as you follow Brix and Ivy navigate their relationship while dealing with family drama, insecurities and the fact they are now step-siblings.

It's a wonderful story of forgiveness that leads to a happily ever after. I highly recommend. The narrators were perfect.

Rockstar, bully, step siblings...check check check

Brooke O'Brien is a new to me author and she didnt disappoint with this scorcher! She masterfully intertwined rockstar, bully and step sibling tropes, covering each perfectly. "Theres a fine line between love and hate, and its about to be set on fire."

Oh Brix, Naughty, Naughty, Brix!

Brix Ward is arrogant, conceited, sexy as sin and determined to make Ivy miserable any way he can. Ivy Thomas, home from college on summer break is determined to not let him get to her, until he does. Brix is a deliciously angsty, deliciously naughty, enemies to lovers, to forever story that will make you a little bit mad, a little bit sad, and a then have you whooping for joy and crying happy tears! Well written, and beautifully narrated, Brix features a smooth easy to follow plot, realistic dialogue and richly developed characters that grow and evolve as the plot progresses. I really enjoyed this first book, and I look forward to more in what promises to be a fabulous series!

Okay so at first you might think that Brix is a a..hole, but in all honesty he is truly a big teddy bear. First time listening to Brooke O'Brian and well have to say I can't wait for more now. Michael and Stefanie did a really good job on narrating this book!

Brix and Ivy

Brix and Ivy
Two people who hated each other in high school meet up again later. Brix is an arrogant conceited bastard. Ivy comes home for the summer to find that her mother has married Brix’ father. Now they have to live together in the same house. He finds her attractive now or is he playing her? She hates him still. This is a great story and I recommend it and the narration was great too.

Amazing job!

Hearing Brix come to life was absolutely amazing! The narrators did such an amazing job giving voice to Ivy and Brix. It was such a different experience listening to Brix versus reading it and this is one audiobook I’ll definitely listen to again!

Enemies to lovers at its finest

Enemies to lovers my favorite trope Ivy and Brix went to high school together and he maxed her life a living hell they hate each other so when they meet up with each other years later he does not recognize her and hits on her to make matters worse they realize their parents are involved and eloped. Forced to spend the summer together in the same house sparks fly between these two. But will a bet made be the end of this romance that could be so much more. I enjoyed this book so much and I can’t wait to read the stories of the other Rebel’s Havoc member s and them finding love.

Steamy Stepbrother Romance!

Brix is a wonderfully written bully stepbrother romance, an excellent start to the Rebels Havoc's series. The storyline was entertaining, charming, and steamy with the right amount of drama and angst. The main characters Brix and Ivy, have a connection that they can't deny, despite their past and present circumstances. Brix is the lead singer of Rebels Havoc band, a bad boy, broody, arrogant, and Ivy's high school tormentor. Ivy is his contrast, a sweet, high achieving college student. Their relationship is totally explosive and the chemistry, scorching. I really enjoyed their story and how it unfolded, especially when Brix started opening up more and letting himself be vulnerable.

Michael Gallagher and Stefanie Kay did an excellent job with the narration. They captured and portrayed the character's personalities and connections nicely, breathing life into them. Overall, this was an enjoyable stepbrother romance, one I'll recommend to the fans of the genre.

Steamy siblings! (not really, don't worry....)

This take on enemies-to-lovers had me seething to begin with and I really couldn't see Brix as being redeemable, but Brooke O'Brien managed to turn him around. Brix's and Liv's story is explosive and steamy and Michael Gallagher's and Stefanie Kay's narration complement each other perfectly. Love it!!

4.5 Stars

I recieved this audiobook at my request via a promo code courtesy of The Flock and this is my honest voluntary review

There’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s about to be set on fire"

Book One of Rebels of Havoc focuses on Brix Ward as he reunites with his former high school victim...who happens to be his new stepsister. The girl who he bets his best friend he will be bedding and sending back to college crying into her textbooks by the end of the summer... the girl who declares he will have the best Hate S3x of his life with to her face mere moments before their parents announce their new relationship status. Ivy tries her best to ignore her rockstar new brother despite the sizzling chemistry between them. From crazy headboard thumping wars through their bedroom walls, the ballsy flirting and date sabotaging.. its geared up to be a long summer.

I loved the progression from the hate-to-love and Brix finally becoming a decent semi-human as he helped his mother through rehab. Narrators were fantastic and the writing was great.
I look forward to more in this series.

Loved it

Brix is my first book by Brooke O'Brien but definitely not my last. It's a mix of tropes, such as rockstar romance, enemies-to-lovers and the taboo subject of stepsiblings.
I wasn't sure how to feel about Brix in the beginning. But I really liked the parts of the plot, where we learn more about Brix and he changes, I grew to love him. Ivy I adored from the beginning, and everytime it was revealed how much shebhad changed/grown over the years, that feeling just grew. It felt realistic in a lot of ways.
The voices of the narrators complemented each other and suited the characters well.

Brix & Ivy!

Brooke O'Brien has a way with words. This is not the typical bully, stepbrother romance, She has taken it up a notch. Ivy is home from college for the summer and is living with her mom. Brix, now her stepbrother is home too, their newlywed parents away together. What a nightmare for Ivy, right? Brix has been the target of his brutality for most of her life and now she has to live with him? But things are never what they seem, and the chemistry between these two is undeniable. Will Ivy see through Brix's exterior to the man her really is? I enjoyed this story so much. I was ready for the typical steamy stepbrother dialogue, but these two characters are so much more than just attracted to each other. O'Brien has given them so much depth, it gave the story a very real dimension. It's a steamy listen with a twist. I definitely will be looking out for other audios by her.

Michael Gallagher and Stefanie Kay voice our characters and they are perfectly cast for new adult romance. Each has a quality that makes the character their own and fine tunes into their personalities. I enjoy both of their voices and know when I see their names, I am in for a treat.
