Review: Bane
BANE - Brenda Jackson
Harlequin Desire
December 2015
REVIEWER:   Brenda Larnell | RATING:  A
REVIEW: If you are a Brenda Jackson fan, then you are familiar with the ever expanding Westmoreland family. BANE is the long awaited story of Brisbane ‘Bane’ Westmoreland, the youngest male and bad boy turned bad-ass Navy Seal. Bane is home and he is on a mission to find the love of his life, Crystal Newsome. This book is their story, and what a story it is!

First, let me issue this disclaimer: I promise that I will not reveal any spoilers in this review because I am aware that the release date is not scheduled until December of this year. From reading previous Westmoreland stories, we know that Bane and Crystal were very young when they fell in love; Crystal was still in high school. We also know that Crystal’s father did everything he could to keep his daughter away from Bane. When the story opens, five years have passed since Bane and Crystal have had any contact with each other. There’s trouble brewing, and Bane, without hesitation, goes into Navy Seal mode.

This novel is my favorite of all the Westmoreland stories. It has a little of everything that romance junkies, like myself, love. There is the incredibly good looking hero who is passionately in love with the beautiful heroine. There is an element of intrigue, the presence of bad men, moments of imminent  danger, and doleful personal issues that said hero and heroine must overcome. And of course, there is the happy-ever- after ending. But that’s not all, folks. It’s like a Westmoreland-Outlaw family reunion. You are going to love it!

I must give a Shout-Out to Brenda Jackson for that wonderful visual of our hero, Bane (Louis E. Allen III) featured on the cover. Perfect!
BANE is a winner! I highly recommend it! I know you are going to enjoy it and I believe Mrs. Jackson saved the best for last!
