About The Book

The third book in the sexy Alpha’s Heart series by USA Today bestseller Bella Jewel.

Delaney, a professional bodyguard, has spent years trying to prove herself in a male dominated industry.  Now she’s facing her greatest challenge yet.

Bad boy billionaire Jax Shields has made plenty of enemies on his climb to the top, but being in the wrong place at the wrong time has put his life at risk. Now he’s putting his life in the hands of Delaney and her team. He demands the best in everything, and he doesn’t think she has what it takes to protect him. He’s also made it clear he’d rather have her on her back then covering his. Will Delaney be able to prove herself to the most arrogant-and devastatingly handsome-man she’s ever met?


Green my reveiw

**ARC Received for an Honest Review**

I fell in love with Tazen and Quinn in “Hard to Break” (Book 2) and I love Jax and Delaney just as much. Bella Jewel’s third book in her Alpha’s Heart Series is just as amazing if not more than the second one. She just keeps getting better and better, if that’s possible.

From the book – “I love you,” he says, his voice thick. “I’ve never said that to a single person in my life and I thought I never would, but I mean it with you Delaney. I love you.”

Doesn’t that line break your heart? It broke mine, but you have to read the story to understand the effect it will have on you. I love how that line is the big red bow on this story. Of course, Jaxson Shields is broken and maybe he will never be fixed. That’s his excuse for why he is a manwhore, a jerk and a stoic pain in the but. He has a very hard outer shell but when his life is threatened for real, the exterior starts to crack. Delaney is there to help relieve the stress he doesn’t know how to deal with, but she finds out she needs him just as much, if not more. This couple learns to appreciate their life after theirs is threatened numerous times.

From the book – “I’d go to the ends of the earth if it meant you were safe, Delaney. Don’t you ever doubt that. You might be tough, and bad ass, but I’m always going to protect you.”

Funny, how the story starts, Delaney is struggling to believe in herself. Nak, her boss, believes in her. Her family believes in her. Even Kyle eventually believes in her. But she must learn to believe in herself and trust herself to do her job. Delaney also struggles with the fact that she is a female in what some think, is a man’s job. She has trained to be a bodyguard. She can do what the men in her company do and at times, better than her male counterparts. But Delaney needs to get her feet wet in order to start seeing that she is good, no, great at her job. When she must act quickly to save Jaxson and her own life is threatened, the reality sinks in and she starts to crack too. Delaney needs to find a way to deal with the stress of her job and the stress of trying to prove to her co-workers, her boss and herself that she is good enough. Good enough to do the job she deserves to do. Jaxson’s hard exterior cracks enough to let him feel and give, and the danger he is in is more real than he realizes.

Bella Jewel has this bad-ass, male character that you just want to hate right away. He’s the guy you love to hate. He’s a jerk to Delaney when he first meets her and demands a male bodyguard, not her. She’s a “girl” as he puts it. Even after she proves, physically no less, that she is capable of taking care of him, he still demands a male bodyguard. The heart can effect the male or female and each can do dumb things because of the heart. Kyle can tell you that. Delaney is strong, wants to believe in herself but it takes some near death situations and some pep talks from Nak for her to believe the truth.

I love that Bella Jewel’s books have different story lines, themes that I have not read about recently. My attention is definitely caught up in the book. While there is an alpha male who comes off as a big old jerk, the conflict between big alpha male and female counterpart is different and fresh. I love it. At the start of this book, Delaney is running in the rain, and it sets the mood of the dark and serious tone that the book needs. The seriousness of Kyle and Delaney as they run together in the rain adds to that dark theme forecasting the danger ahead in their job.

I never thought I would like a suspenseful romantic story, but this book was incredible. I honestly wanted to keep reading last night or more like this morning at 2:30am. I had to get some sleep to be able to function, but it was against my better judgement. This story has some suspenseful moments that made me want to go ahead and read to see what happened. I had to, a few times to make sure everything turned out okay. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome of the story. I loved the thriller type action that left me hanging or the suspenseful scenes not knowing who came out okay and who needed to ride to the hospital. I loved the suspense!

Bella Jewel is becoming one of my favorite authors. I hope you give her a try and let her work her way into your hearts too!

Sheltered good girl Victoria Raine has always wanted to be a little bad. Tired of living life safely on the sidelines, she summons the courage to forge a new path for herself and applies to the FBI, looking for adventure and something to fulfill her vague longing for something…more. She gets more than she bargained for with her first undercover assignment—posing as the girlfriend of country music’s bad boy, Drake Maddox, a lone wolf with a reputation for having singularly erotic tastes. Hoping to catch a serial killer that’s targeting women close to Drake, Tori’s job is to convince the public, and the killer, that she and the wickedly handsome superstar are an item.

Although their relationship is a sham, there’s nothing fake about the hidden desires the sexy as sin cowboy awakens in Tori. As the killer draws closer, Tori finds herself falling for the one man she can’t have.

**Shameless can be read as a standalone novel**

Each book in the Black Brothers Trilogy focuses on a different brother and his story and can be read independently, although the books interconnect.

Shamless Teaser 1



I received an ARC copy for an honest review of this book.

Wow! Talk about a HOT book. The battery on my iPad actually died while I was reading this and I screamed a very loud “NOOOOOOO” at the screen. I couldn’t wait until the morning to find out what happened to Tori and Drake. There is some light BDSM in this book, so if that sort of thing is not your cup of tea, don’t bother.

The black in the 5 stars is for the “Black Brothers Trilogy” – get it, Black brothers, black stars…

Brynley Bush has surprised me and made me a fan. Tori is an FBI Agent who is assigned to Drake Maddox, a super hot country singer.  Female fans are disappearing from Drake’s concerts and Tori is going to help catch the sick individual. Tori took a chance, ran far from her father’s business and into the door of the FBI. She is new to the agency and needs to prove herself. This case is her chance, except no one believes this petite, home-town girl can do the job. Little do they know. (Insert evil laugh) Before Tori can be the strong, dependable agent, she needs to find herself. All of herself, including her courage. On  the verge of being kicked off the case, she goes to Drake, the beautiful, amazingly sexy country singer to ask him to help her find the courage to be reckless, brave and strong. Drake does it with a power exchange. He helps Tori see another side to herself and in turn, helps Drake see a side to himself he didn’t know existed. Only then can Tori focus on being the agent to solve the case and find the sick person who is kidnapping female fans.

I found Drake to be very mysterious, not trusting the character until the end. He is written very well and since the relationship was supposed to be a fake one for the sake of the stalker, at times I didn’t know if Drake was serious or playing the role of the boyfriend, but all is revealed in due time. And it will make you happy. You even get to meet his brothers, each has their own books written for them so if you like this book, check out the first two. I know I am! The family bond is strong and I appreciate stories like that. I love the strong family who has each other’s back.

The sex scenes are amazing and tasteful. Got me squirming in my seat at time too. Drake is a god to Tori, always taking care of her needs. Always, but she needs to trust him! Well, just like a good Dom would I guess.

I found the ending to be predictable, the part where the stalker was revealed. Either that or I am a good guesser, but I felt the climax of the stalker meeting Drake was a little predictable. I was yelling at Tori when she was in the hotel room but she obviously didn’t hear me tell her to turn around and run away. Thank goodness for her phone though.

I give Brynley Bush and “Shameless” 5 stars! Looking forward to reading the other two books in the trilogy.
