Review of "A Brutal Tenderness" (A Terrible Love #2) by Marata Eros

**ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.**

There are two sides to every story. In this dark and sexy companion novel to the New York Times bestseller A Terrible Love, experience the sizzling passion and pulse-pounding suspense through FBI agent Cas Steele’s eyes as he hunts down a psychopath...and falls for the killer’s prey.

Cas has been charged with an unsavory task: manipulate the hauntingly beautiful Jewell MacLeod—a woman he has every reason to hate—and slowly gain her trust in order to use her as bait to lure in a killer. But as the killer draws closer, Cas realizes that he can’t deny the scorching chemistry that ignites between him and Jewell, even if giving into his physical desire for her means jeopardizing his mission...and opening himself up to the possibility of a real and terrible love...
Expected publication: August 26th 2013 by Simon & Schuster

If you are stumbling upon my review and have NOT READ "A Terrible Love" Book #1 of this series, then STOP READING! This book (A Terrible Love #2) can not be read without reading the first book FIRST! And believe me you will not be disappointed.

I have to start off by saying that I should have reread book 1 before starting this book, at first I was confused by the different names because as you know, everyone had a different life, a different name, it got a little confusing to me until I got myself reacquainted with the characters and THEN the book picked up for me. ABT was absolutely from a mans point of view, great job Ms. Eros! But no less romantic, just "Man Romantic" if that is even a thing. LOL!
I loved how this book filled in the gaps from the first book, when I first read ATL I had MANY questions that I needed answers to in my own head, so much so that I emailed the author seeking the answers, she was nice enough to answer back and tell me to hold my horses! Cas' point of view was coming and all my questions would be answered. Well, she did not disappoint! 

Cas is ALL male and I loved every steamy second of him!
Marata Eros is such a fantastic writer I could almost smell that mans sweat, she is descriptive without giving too much detail. She is great!

A Terrible Love and A Brutal Tenderness are both Keepers!

Dont forget to visit Marata Eros' website, she is always adding little treats, such as deleted scenes, huge giveaways, photos of how she sees her heros in her head and so much more!
