BLOG TOUR: Make It A Double (Last Call #2) by Sawyer Bennett

Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he’s back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn’t recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.

Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can’t buy.

Maybe it’s that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.

While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he’s not willing to accept the light that she offers him.

*MAKE IT A DOUBLE can be read as a stand-alone*

Where to buy


In On the Rocks we met Brody Markham.  He is broody, closed off and borderline rude to everyone he comes in contact with.  However, in Make it a Double we find out that every singe ounce of angst Brody exhibits is hard earned and I honestly cannot blame him at all for his behaviors.  The things we learn about Brody have left me wanting to just snuggle up to the man and give him a big hug.

Coming from such a privileged background, I really expected Alyssa to be the stereotypical rich girl with a redeeming quality or two, but I was so wrong.  Alyssa is so down to earth, caring and giving.  She is so dedicated to her animal shelter its almost a fault.  She also loves with everything she has.

I really enjoyed the love story between Alyssa and Brody.  It was sweet and realistic given the circumstances.  I really loved how the secondary story lines moved the story along and added to the overall suspenseful feel.  I honestly think Sawyer Bennett could easily transition into a romantic suspense writer if she ever caught that whim and be very successful with it.
