Review: R & R (Mad Dogs 4) by Brenda Cothern

I received no compensation from the author for this honest review.

Book 4 in the Mad Dog series.

After rescuing Markus and Brian from the clutches of the sadistic Councilwoman, Shanna Crystal, the Mad Dogs are forced on R & R. None of them are happy and none of them want or need 'rest & relaxation' but they have no choice.

The campground, Dad T's, is a gay soldier's wet dream for R & R but the Dogs barely have a chance to enjoy all it offers when everything they know about the supernaturals that inhabit the world is turned upside-down.

A leisurely run in the Ocala National Forest turns their R & R into a mission. A mission that almost takes out the Delta Unit. Permanently.

Brenda Cothern

Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing a few years ago. Her first book Fates, an adult fantasy, was published in 2010. Her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has caused her to discard her Bachelor’s degrees in management and marketing in order to write full time. Currently, Brenda has fourteen books published (two of which are free!) She is an Amazon best-selling author for Brothers By Bond and Not For Sale. One of her newest releases, Highest Bidder, is the sequel to Not For Sale and became available August 2013. Her latest release, Sixth, became available January 2014 and is the first in the Mad Dogs, series as well as a best seller on ARE.

Brenda resides in Tampa, FL when not attending conventions and is the Chapter Coordinator for the Tampa Bay O.G.R.E.s, as well as a volunteer with the Tampa Bay Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She is also an active member in organizing the Florida Leather Fetish Pride weekend and an associate member of the Tampa Leather Club, as well as their event coordinator for Alt Life Bike Fest.

Novel Breakdown

I would like to first thank the author for allowing me to be a beta reader for this book. I absolutely love the Mad Dogs series.

Here is what I felt about the fourth book.

Characters: 4.5
The complexity of the Mad Dogs keeps growing as does their backstory. With the introduction of characters from another of Ms. Cothern's series, the hotness continues.

Plot: 5
I got my heart strings jerked around a little bit with this book. I cannot say more because that takes us into spoiler territory and I am not one to kiss and tell.

Flow: 4
Cothern's flow is spot on and always a pleasure to read.

Believability: 4.5
Nothing I can say that I have not said previously in this area.

Sexual Tension: 5
Foreplay central! And yet it didn't drive me crazy this time.

Romance: 4
This book had a little more "romance" to it which is nice because I wanted to see progression in that depart for Brian and Markus.
