Between Brothers (The Sacred Brotherhood #4)

4.16  ·  Rating details ·  407 Ratings  ·  54 Reviews
Reckless, dangerous, and out of control; these are the words most often applied to the SHMC’s brother Duracell. Which is why no one can understand what the deal is between him and Blue. Blue is none of those things; if anything he’s quiet, shy, and as mild-mannered as they come. There’s no balance between these two yet they are inexplicably a team. Then Blue gets a single ...more

As my rating states I really liked it but at the same time I had difficulties with it. Firstly, I would have liked to have had more background about Cell. I tried really hard but I just couldn't like him very much. I especially didn't like the way he treated Blue and at times Hayley. Bottom line he just wasn't a very likable character. With that said it doesn't mean I liked what happened with him but it was inevitable and he thought so too. As many have stated and I agree - this wasn't an MC sto ...more
So it's a 3.5 stars for me.

Reasons are:
-I can't relate to the characters
-There were no back stories
-I kind of knew it will end that way

Hayley is quiet girl who kept things to herself due to how she was treated when she was younger.

Cell....we don't get a back story to why he was intense and super scary.

Blue is very quiet and often depends on Cell.

I thought it would between two brothers sharing Hayley but...

Ok so first off, I was so looking forward to this book. I have loved Blue’s character since we first met him. I know he was silent, but I think it was how he was with Dani that really got me liking him. Then to see the weird little interactions with Cell got me to thinking there was going to be some deep and intense, complicated thing between them, but I feel that while Cell must have had some sort of feelings for Blue; he was with him after all, he basically treated Blue like a controlled spous ...more

I started this book when I got home from work and had dinner about 10:30pm and not it after 2 in the morning and I've just finished it. I absolutely couldn't put it down and I have to leave for work in 2 hours since I also work early mornings. I gave the book a rating of 4 but I am not sure if I should have given it a 1. Let me tell you this book took me down a emotional rollercoaster which I suppose is the point of a good story but I am absolutely devastated by the turn of events that this book ...more

Holy Cheese on a Cracker!!! I didn't see that coming!! What, might you ask. You will have to read Between Brothers to find out--so good, so much tension, so much frustration, so much love, so much everything...

As a Sacred Brotherhood addict I have been curious about Blue and Cell's relationship for many many pages. Is it a Friendship? Is it sexual? Are they gay? Are they in love? Have they shared a woman in the past? Why doesn't' Blue talk? What does Cell have on Blue? Why is Hayley so importan

Bloody brilliant!!

I have spent that past four days whizzing through this series and I have loved every second of it! I adored this story and as with all your books think its fabulous! This is the first review I am writing for one of your books not because I don't think you're other books are worth it, its just that I'm not confident with my words, that being said I felt the need to let you know that this wonderful story took me away from the rubbish reality that is my life if only just for a few

I am very torn about this book. Well written. Less drama than the other books which I miss but fits the direction the MC has taken. I liked the relationships. I would have liked more depth. Why were the characters the way they were. Some hints here and there but not quite enough. I didn't feel as involved in the characters and story. Like looking through a window. Not part of the emotion.

*** slightly spoilery***

In a previous book, when a sociopathic character "died" I sobbed and had to stop read

I did not expect that! This book is not your ordinary biker Mc novel. This author is amazing in the way that she wrote this book and while I was reading it, I didn't even realise the characters had worked their way in to my heart. I was angry, confused, sad and by the end I was happy. Its the type of book that doesn't need all the drama of rival mc's fighting or leading female's needing someone to save her! It was just simple in it being mainly about them and their journey. Their love is not nom ...more

although it is part of the MC world, this book is primarily a relationship story. i still have to rate it a five star read even though there were some very contentious issues. I would really have loved for there to have been more depth to Cell's backstory .. although it was hinted at, it just wasn't quite enough. this author is one of my very favourites and she is able to and not afraid to tell a dark, gritty story and this fully met the mark. there were some really OMG moments and i will admit ...more

I love this series

The Sacred Brotherhood gets better and better. Downey has a way of bringing a range of emotions from her readers. Her characters are vibrant, vivid, demanding of attention and soulful. They can make you laugh and make you cry. They are always real.

My only issue with this story was the lack of information. To be specific, Cell's backstory. Blue tells a little about himself but you don't get anything about Cell. So, when Hayley is trying to explain about loving both men it is dif

This story was different. There were some characters that really bothered me, and this probably does affect my rating, but so be it.
I read through a couple of reviews after finishing, to see if I was the only one. This book did not make me cry, I didn't read the previous books in this series, and still somehow caught up with everything that happened, and therefore I won't be reading the rest of the series.
I guess if you like biker books this will appeal to you.
May 11, 2017 rated it it was ok
I believe an author should write a book the way, they want to write it, I also believe I do not have like what they write. Although I've loved quite a few of this authors books, every now and then she writes a book I don't like the content of. I DNF this at 39% because I had a feeling I wouldn't like how this book would end and someone else spoiled it for me and I was right, I didn't like how it ended up at the end and so I'm glad I didn't finish it.

MMF storyline
I have loved every book in this series. Instant one click for me. This book made me work a bit harder. Hayley, Blue and Cell's story is not always an easy one. There were moments when I was definitely angry with some characters but everything is resolved by the end. Expect tears, serious chemistry, sweetness and if you're like me a dash of anger. Definitely recommend - especially to those who love this series.

Amazing MC

AJ has had you guessing about cell and blue in the past couple of books and I couldn't wait to read their story this one has all the feels you want in an MC book thrown in with a little bit of MMF was one of my favorite so far of the serious cell and blue and Haley have a bumpy road the lot overcome but there is love between the three of them and this book will have you in tears and wanting more I highly recommend this book of the series

Good MC romance

I have loved all of the other books in the related series, but this one just wasn't all there for me. I felt like it was chopped up, needed more in multiple places. The story came across, and the romance happened, it was just shortened in my opinion.

I will definitely read more books from Downey and would recommend them to anyone interested in romanticized MC.

I’m not going to rehash the whole deal with this book. The author went somewhere I don’t like to go and ruined a great character for me. She writes it well and I love some of the others in this series so I was bummed. It’s a definite it’s not you, it’s me kind of moment. Just nope. I’ll re read the others and pretend this was all a bad dream.

My poor heart.....

A.J Downey, honey, you are a genius! I love every single one of your books. Goodness, you rip our hearts out and then give them back piece by piece. That was the right thing in the end for this book. I can not wait to see what is coming next! Thank you for the good, ugly cry! <3

Omg tears and runny nose and just ugly cried! I had a hard time even liking Cell, but once you get past everything and that once scene....I cried so hard. Poor Blue did some bad things too and I hated that. Overall this was a good book just make sure you have tissues.

Page Turner for sure....

Loved this book from start to finish. Lots of emotions....laughing, crying, disbelief_etc....could not put down once I started. This is a book that you won't put down. This is Not what you would expect from one of AJ's books but she rocked it out of the ballpark this time!!!

Emotionally charged

Cell and Blue have an unconventional relationship. They care about each other and share a mutual release. But Blue needs more and that more is in the form of Hayley. The three start a relationship but it is not without its ups and downs.

This book will make you laugh, cry, swoon and ask WTF?. It reminds me of Michigan weather when you experience all 4 seasons in one day. You fall in love with all the characters, even the one you shouldn't.

Wow. My favorite. It absolutely stuck with me. I thought it was perfect. The characters, how everything played out, all made so much sense. I really love the grit Downey throws into her MC novels. Was it heartbreaking? Yep. Was it worth it? Oh yeah.

What a read!!

Between Brothers is my first time reading a book in this series but I will definitely be reading them all. This book had my emotions all over the chart. Love, hate, and rage. The flow of the story kept me reading. Loved the fresh storyline. Great job.
