My Personal Review for A Bit of Rough by Laura Baumbach

I got to hand it to Ms. Baumbach, she hooked me 100% when she introduced Bram and James a few years ago. I was thrilled to see them back into the world at MLR Press and just had to re-read this wonderful story. A Bit of Rough introduces readers to Bram Lord, strong, dominate man and architect James Justin, a pretty man who turns Bram's head...and heart.


James Justin decides to do something different and goes to a biker bar where he finds himself drawn to big and rough Bram Lord. One night of lust turns into something more for them both. Bram gives something to James that James has been longing for. But James is afraid he can’t be enough for forceful Bram. Can James let go of his insecurities to enjoy falling in love with the one man destined to be his?

A Bit of Rough is a story that will push all your buttons. Hot sexy alpha males, a strong storyline and such sizzling passion you will either need to take a cold shower or jump your significant other. I got to admit, I have a very big love for big, alpha men who turn to marshmallows with their significant other. A Bit of Rough delivers such a character that had me melting in a puddle the minute Bram stepped onto the pages. Ms. Baumbach delivers sexy tale of two people trying to make a relationship work amid insecurities, misunderstandings and hot passion. With each page I was drawn more into Bram and James’s world, learning about these two magical characters and rooting for them to get their happily ever after. 

The writing was tight, storyline moved quickly and the characters were very well written. With each page we see a little more of these characters hearts and this author doesn’t stint on showing their warts either. Bram has that “Take charge/protective of those he loves” or in James’s words, “Caveman” personality that just made me want to cuddle up next to this big, strong man and purr. James is a bit more complex. He has issues that date back to his childhood and I felt for him. I longed to give him a hug and say it’s going to be ok. There were some wonderful secondary characters that had me giggling at times and the passion between Bram and James was so hot, I was afraid the computer would explode at times.

If you love strong characters, a storyline that will leave you flipping the pages just to see what happens next, and sizzling sexual tension that leave you gasping, then grab A Bit of Rough, I cannot wait to see what happens next for Bram and James. 

My Rating for A Bit of Rough is 4 Stars
