Review: Bender, by Stacy Borel



Part of a series? Yes, but can be read as a standalone.

Cliffhanger? No.

Category: New Adult.

Genre: Contemporary Romance.


Pages: 315


All Keegan wanted was a roommate who was quiet, minded their own business, and paid for part of the rent. Instead, she got Camden Brooks.

Camden, with his sinful body, sharp tongue, and the inability to stay out of Keegan’s personal space, couldn’t seem to curb his interest in the new girl who wouldn’t put up with his domineering ways.

Feelings were running rampant, sexual tension was thick, and both were struggling to let go of control.

To some people, getting a roommate simply meant living with another person. But to both Camden and Keegan it was a curveball that neither was prepared to swing at.

**Strong sexual content**
Can be read as a stand alone. Each brother will have their own book. (A 96,000 word novel)

I heard many things about this book and I decided to give it a shot. I’m really glad I did.

This is quite a typical NA Contemporary Romance, but not in a bad way. There are some really hot scenes, but they don’t take up too much space to the point of negatively impacting on the plot and the characterization. The romance is building slowly to better let us anticipate it. The brooding male character is swoon worthy and just enough of a jerk at first to keep us on our toes and there are a few family issues that make the main character’s background all the more interesting.

The few twists aren’t that shattering, but they are interesting and they kept me riveted. The writing is flawless and quite perfect for that story. The dynamic between all the characters is quite addictive so I’m eager to read the next books with the other brothers.

While the romance takes a while to really start, once it starts everything is rushing forward, but quite sweetly with some hot scenes to satisfy everybody. Sometimes though, I felt like the domineering way of Camden wasn’t that true because somehow it felt forced sometimes, but it works well still.

There are a few parts where I think the author should have described more things instead of cutting it short with a few sentences. I find it more and more in books these days that some parts are resumed instead of actually showed. It’s bothering me slightly, but here the characters and the chemistry between Camden and Keegan won me over so much that I couldn’t wait to read more.

Without a doubt, I’d recommend this book to anyone looking for a great NA Contemporary Romance. Being hooked right away and having my attention until the end isn’t always that easy so it deserves to be mentioned.

The epilogue is a nice touch even though I think it’s more of an introduction to the next installment that will be centered on Turner.

Who read Bender already? What do you think of Camden? And his other brothers? I don’t know you, but I’m looking forward to reading all about them.
