Brody is Hunter's twin (who you meet in the first book). Brody was sent to jail for 5 years for killing a person. He's just been released from jail and he's a brooding man. Understandably, since he was on his way to becoming a doctor, when he lost everything, his girlfriend, his freedom and the opportunity to become a doctor. Now people shy away from him. Hunter gave him a job at his bar called the Last Call in the hopes of helping him get back on his feet.
Alyssa is a very rich friend of Hunter's sister Casey. Unfortunately, Brody just thinks of her as a rich, entitled, snooty girl and wants nothing to do with her. What he doesn't realize that the only truth to that depiction of her is rich.
Alyssa uses her money to run a no-kill shelter for animals. She's the only employee and has volunteers help her. Brody must do community service and loves animals but refuses to work with Alyssa until one day when Alyssa is in a bind. She comes running to Hunter's house to ask for help when she finds only Brody. To her surprise, Brody volunteers to help her out. He's surprised to see how hard working and not snooty she really is. They start connecting and then HOLY SMOKES - BAM! Sawyer Bennett gives you a super shock that ties them together and makes their bond grow so much stronger.
This is a beautiful love story that is just written so well. Brody and Alyssa are scorching hot together and tender at the same time. You truly get to watch Brody and his broken self get healed and it's hard to describe how wonderfully written it is. It was an amazing, romantic and emotional story.
I absolutely loved Brody and Alyssa. Even before they start exploring their possible feelings for each other, I thought they were both strong, interesting characters. I loved them even more the minute that they started letting themselves see that they could be great together. They did a lot to build each other up and to help each other get over pieces and people from their past. I definitely felt a deeper connection to these characters and between these characters than I did in the first book. I can’t wait to read more of this series.
Sawyer is trying to paint Alyssa as some intuitive character, but it feels forced. After one day with Brody she seems to have him all figured out. Rather than explain Brody's character through the eyes of Alyssa why not inform the reader what we should really understand about Brody. Alyssa speculating about Brody does not help me understand his true character. Brody spent enough time prejudging her in the beginning. Brody watches Alyssa work in the animal shelter and gets this epiphany that she is not the rich heiress he claimed her of being.
This story is hard to settle into. I'm feeling a disconnect with the characters due to the over wording of the story.
Alyssa overthinks and overanalyzes each situation.
The girls are very shallow minded characters.
The author fights hard to disprove misjudgment and labeling for some characters but then others it's blatantly obvious that some people fit into a certain label.
Once I filter through the word fillers by skimming the story to get to the heart of the plot then it's not a bad story.
Just as I thought Hunter’s name was perfect in On the Rocks, Brody’s name did the same thing in Make it a Double. Brooding, distant and silent, Brody was keeping life at arm’s length in order to not be entangled in anything at all that could make him feel. After spending five years in prison for vehicular man slaughter. Once he’s back home, difficulties to adjust is only the start, he has trouble with a lot of things, working, being friendly, hugging, making a commitment – even to his brother’s bar – and most of all, he thinks he’ll never be able to commit to a woman ever again. Alyssa seems to be everything Brody is not – happy, friendly, open, and most of all she spends all her time and money on her own no-kill shelter where she keeps both cats and dogs, and where the first horse is about to arrive.
Make it a Double is definitely darker than the first book in the series, and it also touched me very deeply! I truly enjoyed both Brody and Alyssa, the way they were so determined to make it on their own, only to realize that sometimes it’s impossible to move forwards without a little help. Of course, the fact that I already knew most of the secondary characters, and enjoyed them immensely as well, only made this story all the better. Also, the character development, both for Alyssa and for Brody is quite spectacular – they both felt the need for a change, and were able to help each other take that last step in order to both become more mature, and to learn to trust completely once more.
I loved how Brody’s past wasn’t as clear-cut as it had seemed in the beginning, and how Alyssa was able to offer her support and also show him that she would not tell anybody about him without him wanting that. The overall story was really well done, and the smexiness between the two main characters was completely off the charts!
The writing in Make it a Double was really good, the first person present tense worked very well for me. Written in dual points of views from both Alyssa and Brody’s perspectives I really got to know them well, and while there were some typos and minor editing issues, nothing at all could take me out of the story. If you’re a fan of contemporary romance stories, the Last Call series should definitely make it to your TBR shelf, and hopefully, you’ll love these characters and their stories just as much as I did.
