Gentry Generations: Book Two by Cora Brent Publication Date: January 12, 2018 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

I'm determined to leave my mistakes in the past. These days I'm back in school, I'm surrounded by my wonderful, crazy family and I'm working for my dad. Then Curtis Mulligan happens. A supposedly reformed gang member from the rundown prison town where my folks grew up, Curtis looks like he was built for mayhem. We have nothing in common. If he hadn't taken a job working for my father, our paths wouldn't even cross. But I can't admit that menacing mix of ink and muscle has flipped a switch inside of me. It's an impulse I'm determined to ignore. However, when Curtis turns out to be much more than he seems and steps between me and a bad situation, I wind up owing him a hell of a favor. And I can't think of anything but paying him back... 

I should have been dead a dozen times over but somehow I'm still here. I'm grateful for the chance to keep my head down and act like a regular citizen. Screwing up isn't an option and getting naked with the boss's daughter is no way to thank the man for a job. Besides, sweet, clueless Cassie Gentry isn't the kind of girl I'm used to entertaining myself with. I had planned to keep my hands off even if she begged for it. But that was before I realized Cassie is much more than a pretty face. She just might be the girl who can turn me around for good... *TURN is the latest book set in the Gentry world from USA Today and NYT Bestselling author Cora Brent. May be read as a stand alone.*


I LOVED IT!!! Cora Brent always delivers a book that you want to hold in your heart and hug the hell out of. This is no exception!! 

Gentry Generations book 2! Up now is Cassie, Cord and Saylor's daughter.

Since a devastating incident in her last year of school Cassie has hid away from the world. She doesn't know what she wants to do as she lost all her confidence. On summer vacation she helps out as a favor to her dad in Scratch, the tattoo place her dad runs with her Uncle Deck. There she encounters one of the new members of staff Curtis.

Curtis has been taken on at Scratch after he reached out to Deck Gentry one of his fathers friends. He's been tasked with being guardian to his two younger brothers Tristan and Brecken after his mom goes on the run. They've lost everything so Curtis got them out of Emblem as there was nothing there for them any more. Struggling with money and looking after his brothers Curtis is determined to make a go of his new job. There's a lot of people depending on him and he won't let them down. Meeting Cassie at work he can't deny the attraction but he see's her as a privileged princess and knows someone like him would never be good enough for her. 

With his outward looks and his surly reaction to her Cassie just see's him as a thug at first. But the longer she's around him she starts to see more than just that. A blast from Cassie's past threatens to bring back all her old insecurities and horrors. She knows she needs to start living again but can she really move on?

GAH!!!!! Curtis!!! I absolutely adored him! He reminded me so much of the Gentry triplets you couldn't help but fall in love with him. I loved the fact that he and his brothers were from Emblem and that Cord and Deck were there to help him out! He had the weight of the world on his shoulders but he was man enough to accept help when it was offered. I loved reading his evolution from former gang member to responsible adult he's just so.... swoon!!!! His relationship with his brothers made my heart break a little. With Tristan being an almost adult he had to stand back and let him make his own mistakes even though you could feel it was killing him to do so. His relationship with Brecken was so sweet and he's determined to do right by him. I have every body part crossed in the hope that these two boys get books somewhere along the line!

Cassie was amazing she showed such a quiet strength after everything that she had been through and she also went on an incredible journey from quiet and lost to strong and trusting. She had always had the backing of her family but it took Curtis to make her see how strong she really was. I loved that!!! They brought out the best in each other. Her kindness gave him confidence in himself and his honesty gave her the strength she needed. I also loved seeing more of her relationship with her twin sister. Such opposites in personality but both as close as can be.

It was amazing as usual to see everyone from former books pop up in here. Cord and Saylor are just the best parents ever!!! But was there really any doubt they would be? 

The story kept me glued in my seat from beginning to end. The running theme through these books of family just fills your heart to overflowing. There's little hints dropped here and there of future books of family members and i honestly can't wait to get my grabby hands on any of them. All of them. I need them all now!!!! 

Amazing book as always. An automatic one click author for me.

5 family stars!!!
