Title: No Apologies
Series: Bomar Boys #2
Author: Jess Bryant
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 18, 2016
Every small town has that one family that's more savage than civilized. The ones that are more myth and legend than man. In Old Settlers, Oklahoma that's the Bomar boys. Wild, reckless and vicious, they skirt the line of criminal and trip over it more often than not. They are their own punchline: white trash but proud beyond compare. Dirty and dangerously sexy, it's best to steer clear of them or else risk your life... and your heart. These are their stories.
Colt Bomar is a bastard. A dirty, violent piece of white trash, he makes no apologies for who and what he is. He's never cared what anyone thinks of him and he cares even less about trying to be a better kind of man... until her.
She's everything he's not. Good, sweet, gentle, she's an angel that brightens his dark existence. But he's seen the kind of destruction a man like him can wreak and he intends to protect her from that, from him, if it's the only good thing he ever does.
Skylar Holland is no angel. Angels don't lust after the bad-tempered boy next door when they're involved with another man. They don't dream about having the rough hands and sinful mouth of a guy that snaps and snarls at them all over their body. And that's what she's wanted from Colt since the moment the troubled Bomar boy said they were nothing but friends.
Friends? With a man that makes her blood boil and her heart melt? No, she wants more. She wants everything. And she's not about to apologize for going after what she knows they both want. Forever.
Can he overcome his past to give her the future he knows she deserves? or is he doomed to repeat the sins of his father by dragging her down into the darkness with him? And if she treads into the shadows to win him will she even still be the woman he wants when they come out the other side?
*No Apologies is the second book in the Bomar Boys series but can be read as a stand-alone. Each book features one couple and a HEA but do build on each other so they are best read in order.
**Warning** This book contains explicit language, sexual scenes and violence. Though not depicted, mentions of abuse are key to the storyline and can be a trigger for some.

Ooh, I love me some Bomar Boys. And in this book we get to learn a lot more about Colt, Cash's twin brother and Skylar, Jemma's best friend. In No Regrets, we learn that the two of them have formed a friendship and that it could possibly be more than that. Duh. Of course there is more than that, or else there wouldn't be a book! I love when there is ridiculous chemistry/sexual tension between two characters. It was obvious to anyone who saw Skyler and Colt interact, but they both though they hid it well. They didn't. ;-)
This book tugged at my heartstrings a bit more than the previous book. Colt, like his brother, had a kind heart and everything he did was to protect those he loves. So when he tries to push Skylar away, he's doing it because he feels like he has to. Sound familiar? But the difference here is that Colt wore his heart on his sleeve and was not able to fool anyone, especially Skylar. Colt made some serious sacrifices to make sure he stayed on the right side of the law and unfortunately, that came back to bite him on the ass. Also, in this book Colt was the one who needed to overcome the obstacles in his way. Skylar was all in from day 1.
As a couple, they were fantastic. They always seemed very in tune with the other person and always seemed to know what the other person was thinking. But going back to the whole chemistry thing, if I thought they had it while they were just friends, once they got together their chemistry was off the charts! Like ridiculously HOT.
In this book we got to know a little more of the Bomar family and learn about the family business. We meet all the cousins and see just how far they will go for each other. And Cash & Colt's brother Remington? Good lord. He strikes up a friendship with Skylar's assistant Rachel and from what we learned in this book, it is quite an unlikely friendship. Rachel is very shy and has a hard time being around most men, except for Remy. I CANNOT wait for their story! I love the whole tough guy/shy girl trope...it's just so GOOD! Bring on more Bomar boys!
