Title: He’s a Brute

Author: Chloe Liese

Release date: May 6, 2019

Series: Book 1 of 3: Tough Love

Pages: 254



One dark and handsome control-freak sports star meets one smarty pants bioengineer with hair to match her fiery temper. It’s an experiment straight out of sexual thermodynamics.

Every good scientist knows the second law of thermodynamics: the universe’s disorder, entropy, is always increasing. Professionally and personally speaking, Nairne’s familiar with the principle. After a streak of costly fame, now she’s set on saving the world, microscope in hand, and there’s no time for romance. Problem is, when a rude, despicably sexy Adonis shows up to run their board meeting, chemistry and its ensuing chaos become more than a formula—now they’re a burning hot reality.

Mafia prince. Professional footballer. Bad boy demeanor and a reputation for being as talented between the sheets as he is on the pitch. Rumors are the man’s an absolute brute. And he turns out to be just as demanding, controlling and vicious in person as he is on paper. The Law of Attraction’s proven true, as Nairne finds herself accepting Zed’s proposal: rough, wild stress release, more orgasms than she can count, and most importantly—no falling in love.

Agreement in place. End date secured.

No attachments. No forever.

What could possibly go wrong?


Chloe Liese is a new author for me and just last year I read a book by her. I read almost all her books and I loved them and now she is one of my favorites authors. He’s a Brute is the first book in the series Tough Love and I’m happy that I decided to read this book. I loved every page of this book.

“Disability was isolating. And some days you just couldn’t shake yourself out of that feeling that shit was hard, and you were on your own with it.”

Nairne is a strong woman, sassy, independent and she knows what she wants. Nairne is in a wheelchair because of a spinal injury but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t want a relationship or she can pursue her dreams. I admire her strength and her determination. She didn’t let her disability define her.

Because this is what happens to a man. Until they meet the woman. Then they want something more.

Zedd is a soccer player, he is part of Boston’s mafia and he is the head of a non-profitable organization and because he had a lot to handle, he needs control and order. He is controlling, loyal, and very protective of the people around him. He meets Nairne, a sassy woman and he is attracted to her but he knows that he had to stay away from her because he is controlling and demands submission. He can’t stay away from her so he decided to propose her a sexual relationship. Nairne was reluctant at first but she agrees to have a relationship with him.

He wanted me, and my paralysis happened to be part of who I was.

I loved that Zed fell in love with her and he didn’t care about her disability. He respected her as a woman and he respected that she is very independent. Even if he is controlling is very careful, protective, and loving with her. I really loved the way Zed sees her and how he treats her. I really loved this couple and I loved their relationship. I recommend to everyone this series and I’m sure that He’s a Brute will be one of my top reads of this year.
