Title: One Chance (Hogan Brother’s Book #1)
Author: KL Donn
Release Date: May 9th 2017
One word that could ruin a person.
One word that can change a life.
One word that can destroy a mind.
Sophia Bennett heard it all her life. Smart, sweet, and shy, she hesitated to voice her ideas and opinions in fear of hearing that dreaded word, “Don’t be stupid, Sophia.”
She became introverted, quiet. Talking to people became a struggle she fought to control. She turned into a woman she never thought she’d be.
Seen but never heard.
Appearance became everything.
Rough around the edges Lennox Hogan is knee dip in shit – literally. Building a garden for his mother with his younger brothers, when the most beautiful creature he’s ever seen stops by to visit their mother for their weekly book chat.
A fake smile and sad eyes draw him in.
Her intoxicating innocence has him obsessed with the need to know everything about her.
An unknown threat has them questioning everything about her life.
Lennox soon makes it his mission to convince her to give him One Chance, but will she after her world crumbles before her?
“God damn that was beautiful,” he murmured as their gazes clashed together. His eyes full of heat and need. Without thought, she realized they were swaying back and forth as if in tune to a song only they could hear. By the time he’d stopped moving their bodies side to side, he had her in his bed. The implication was clear.
Or so she thought.
“You’ll sleep in here,” he paused until she fixed her eyes on him, “with me.” He must have seen the stricken look in her stare. “We aren’t going to do anything but sleep, Soph. That was phenomenal.” His gaze roamed her body. “We’ll go slow from now on. I just can’t have you in my house and not in my bed. It’s not possible.”
It was oddly sweet.
“Okay,” she managed to say through a tight throat.
His smile was worth all of her nerves, lighting up his entire face. Producing the sexy dimple in his one cheek she had lusted over before.
Relaxing in the bed, she had expected him to go around to the other side. She was wrong. He scooted in right behind her, wrapping his entire frame around hers. She was cocooned in his muscles, encased in his legs, melting into his embrace.

I'm never quite sure what to say here.
So here goes...
I'm a Canadian girl through and through, I love the mountains, yet I hate the snow. The summer here gets HAWT and I wish it was year round.
Some of my favorite things are cookie dough ice cream from Marble Slab, every Die Hard movie made, and crime drama shows on TV.
I swear like a sailor, don't do frilly girly things. BUT I love when my husband treats me like a queen.
I take photos for fun, and write to breathe. I love to be as creative as I can, when I can.
These are some of my favorite things about me. Do you wanna know the best part of me?
My mom and Grandma have supported me through every bad decision, and cheated on the good ones. They're strong woman who I look up to!
My husband, Steven, Scuba Steve, we've been together since I was 17, had our first baby, Savannah, when I was 18, and were married when I was 19. 3 boys, Chase Liam & JD, and 12 years later our family is complete.
Without their constant support (And sometimes badgering) I don't think I would be the woman I am today.
This is a fantastic start to a new series “Hogan Brothers”. I loved the emotional ups and downs that took place, the feel good moments, the sexual tension that ran throughout and the deep suspense that took place. This story is about Lennox and Sophia. Lennox is a good man who is gruff, alpha to the core and definitely protective of those he loves. Lennox is the oldest of three brothers. He takes care of his family and is super protective . Lennox wants the same love he saw his parents have and doesn’t want to settle for less.
Sophia comes from a sheltered background - sheltered not because she is loved but because that is how her family wants her. Her life has been a pretty sad one. Her mother treats her horribly and degrades her on a daily basis. She comes from a wealthy family but has never been happy, not once. I felt so bad for her when I read her story and I cried for her. Her dad was never there for her since he was too wrapped up in work. She ends up making friends with Lennox’s mother Lorraine and that is where she felt wanted and treated with kindness.
Lennox courted Sophia and it was so sweet yet sexy. He showed her how she was wanted and love. Lennox saw things about Sophia and he loved her sweetness, her kindness and how even though she was literally emotionally beaten down every day, she rose above all that. But someone is now trying to literally kill her and Lennox is not about to let that happen and will do ANYTHING to protect her from this threat.
There is so many ups and downs, twists and t urns. You literally will not believe what happens in this story. It is insane. I loved the ending and cant wait for book 2 in this series.
My Rating: 4.9 stars *****
