Sometimes rules must be broken.

Sometimes your beliefs are challenged.

Other times… you just have to follow your heart.

For Marine Corps Sgt. Alex Cruz, the Corps’ rules and regulations have served as a blueprint for how he should live his life. In his mind, the way to maintaining proper conduct and order relied heavily on the ability of the individual to follow orders without question. Alex was that individual.


Pfc. Cassie Bennett.

She is brand new to the Corps, looking to cement a place in the world for herself after breaking free from the oppressive life she’s lived with her mother. Making it in the Corps is her way of showing her mother that she is more than she thinks she is, while also proving to herself she can survive one of life’s biggest challenges.

Both Alex and Cassie are tested when an intensely strong attraction develops between them. They feel it, they want it, but one thing stands in their way… The Marine Corps order on Fraternizing. Their lust filled thoughts, their strong and aching cravings for one another, and their conflicted minds lead them on a roller coaster of emotions and feelings that neither can ignore, no matter how hard they try.

Loyalties will be tested, hearts will be broken, and careers will hang in the balance. Can Alex and Cassie keep their forbidden relationship a secret, or will they lose it all by Fraternizing?

Melinda’s Review

Fraternizing is a world wind romance of the modern time. It has rules that are broken, and lots and lots of steamy parts in between. The super sexy Alex Cruz sets the beginning with his raw dominant feral manliness. He spots Cassie Bennett and wastes no time before he claims her. There affair quickly becomes the ultimate chase due to the fact that fraternizing in the military is not tolerated. They soon find their secret is not just hard to keep, but hard to protect from those on the prowl to separate them.

I truly enjoyed this story. There was an undeniable force between the charters that draws the reader in from the start. I became emotionally obsessed with the nail biting drama surrounding Cruz and Bennett’s love affair. They soon found themselves in a multi-dimensional web of deceit, and a constant fear of betrayal. Their relationship goes beyond just their attraction to one another. They have the integrity of their military positions to uphold. As the story unfolds C.C Brown takes you on the magnificent rollercoaster ride of a love affair set with military rules and the reality of whether to follow their hearts or turn their backs on the dedication they have made to the military. The pages of this book was packed full of the steamy chemistry making it hard to put the book down. The ending of their tail left me wanting to see what happens next. So I will be keeping my eye out for the next installment.

Just a book reading, writing loving, mommy and USMC wife! 🙂

I love to write, even if it isn’t what is conventional and makes everyone feel giddy inside. I usually pull from dreams, or ideas that just thrust themselves into my head. I have what some would describe as a dry sense of humor, and I think its conveyed in my writing. I like to think I am a kick ass chick, but I can also be sensitive. I’m learning to grow thick skin, and in this field, it is definitely needed!

I won’t put anything out that I am not absolutely proud of, but like E.L. James said, “I can’t own people’s reactions to it.” Thanks for reading my work… I do appreciate it!
