Reid Matthews grew up abandoned and unloved in the foster system. He felt lonely and invisible. He's a computer genius whose brilliant tech skills landed him a prison record. He was looking for a fresh start and a second chance. He was offered a job in the IT department at BAM that was a game changer for his future. It changed his path and gave him a chance to turn his life around. He's now their lead IT guy and a valuable part of the team. He'd also found a fami

I’m so glad Melanie Moreland has brought us Reid’s story. He’s been an incredible secondary character, stepping up to the mark time after time as the boys have needed his exceptional technology skills, and now the floor is all his.

In many respects this is my favourite of the series and that’s largely down to Reid who has fought his way through life to become the exceptional man he is

Favorite Quotes:

I think you were attempting to dance, but at first, I wasn’t sure if you were having a seizure or drunk.

I’ll say your mattress dancing is a lot smoother than your floor dancing.

I have to tell you that listening to your marketing geek is seriously turning me on, BB. It makes me want to interface with your software.

“Go upstairs, Richard. Give me five minutes with my girl. You’ve had her all week.” “We need to talk if all you need is five minutes, Reid.”

My Review:

I loved this book
 Leo (Queen of the Rants and the Crazy)

A virgin hero who didn’t know how to talk to the heroine. He even made lists.
A bit unrealistic and unbelievable but he was sweet and shy.
Heroine is not a virgin.

Virgin hero and non-virginal heroine -> my reading heaven *lol*

Cute, sweet, but also strong hero. Not an alphahole, but a good young man.
Apart from him telling many personal things to his bosses/friends he was more than ok.
Likable heroine, almost nothing to demur.

The best book in this series, IMO.

This is the best book from this series. I love Reid. He is such a sweet, innocent, loyal, honest alpha male. I love how Miss Moreland develop Reid from innocent, geeky guy into a man. A real man. A man who prove himself to be honest and smart man. He deserves so much respect.

The first part of this book is so hilarious. I love how geeky Reid is. How clueless he is around Becca. But when he realizes how much he loves Becca, he transforms into a real man. He gets all of the respect he deserves. An
rounding up to 4 stars because it was enjoyable and I loved Reid's character. Becca, however, was very bland.

It's a simple sweet romance that's more about Reid overcoming his past with the help of his friends at BAM and Rebecca.
I don't want to give too much info on his past as it is interesting to hear him tell it. But right now, he is a tech guru. He is unabashed about his skills and generally not a shrinking violet, but Rebecca leaves him tongue tied like a high school virgin...

LOVED this book!

Reid is the sweetest, so awkward and silly, you wouldn’t know what a tough life he has lived to get to this point. He’s trying not to dwell in his past but when he falls for his new co-worker his past may try to derail things. Becca is such a strong heroine, just perfect for Reid.

As always Melanie has managed to write a book with fun silliness, so much heart, and there may have been a few tears here and there.

It also just made me fall more and more in love with Sandy! 💕
This author did an amazing thing. She created this ex con, technology genius, virgin hero and made him absolutely, boring. Like so boring, it was effecting the other characters in the previous books. Heroine wasnt any better, and when both of them got together it made everything even more bland.

What can I say that I haven't already said about this series?! I was hooked immediately when I read Bentley; then Aiden broke my heart; Maddox became my favorite and then Melanie gives us Reid...oh Reid! He is everything and more--oh the feels while reading this book! Sweet, sexy, swoony, thoughtful, emotional Reid - how could you not fall in love with him. This series has become one of my favorites, mostly due to the fact that Melanie introduces you to her characters in such a way that you beco ...more

Oh, Reid!!! Our nerdy little boy has grown up into an amazing man!

Reid’s confidence and attitude got him a foot in the door with BAM, but he proved himself over and over again to cement his position with them.

“All of what they did for me made everything worth it.
Because of them, I had a new path and a future. Something to offer.”

From the first moment they met, Reid was drawn to Becca and she to him. Reid has a past that he has tried to move on from, but some things can’t just be swept under a

Honestly, I don’t even know where to start with this review. Okay, yeah, I do know . . . back off, people, Reid is mine. I licked him, so he’s mine. Fine, I licked my Kindle, same diff. Whatever.

In all seriousness, I knew Reid would seize my heart and grab on tight. And, holy hell, did he ever! I loved his innocent yet dirty side. Loved the delicate balance between his naivety and hard-nosed, real life experience. Seriously real, real life experience!

And Becca. Damn, I loved her strength, her sm

I am so in love with this series and to finally have Reid's story come to life was just the icing as we say on the cake!
Reid is a man that has been through more than his share of troubles and heartache. He is a sweet, withdrawn, kind of awkward and just so also happens to be an internet wiz and he is the go to men of BAM .
Becca Holden is brought into BAM as a consultant and the moment that they lay eyes on each other their is an immediate attraction. Reid is a bit to shy to act on it so he admi

I thought I loved the BAM men, but Reid is now my favorite!!
Loved everything about this book. I wanted to hug Reid so bad.
What Love most about this book is the brotherhood and how they care about each other.
That scene with all of the BAM men with Reid made me so emotional.
Loved Becca also. She was the perfect heroine for Reid.
So many emotions when reading this book, from Laughing to crying, from mad to happy.
Hoping for one more book, maybe Van’s book?
5 stars!!

Since reading “The Contract” a couple of years ago, it’s been a real joy to witness Melanie Moreland’s success in the realm of Contemporary Romance. Her stand alone books have always been enjoyable reads, so when I heard Melanie was publishing the “Vested Interest” trilogy I got a little giddy.

I expected Maddox to be the perfect conclusion for Melanie’s trilogy, and in many ways, it is. When the author announced she would be publishing Reid’s story, I was excited for the chance to visit this cor

Reid Matthews... Who is the man behind the computer?  Reid is the youngest member of BAM.  He has had a rough life, cast out as a baby, shuffled around, done a crime and paid the time.  Everyone who has cared for him passed on.  He really doesn't know what love is or how to deal with the touchy feely stuff.  But really, who is Reid?  Reid is the master behind the operations at BAM.  He is the top IT departments guy and he always has the boys at BAM's back.  He is their most loyal and trusted emp ...more

I’ve been looking forward to Reid’s story! He is the young man you just want to give a big hug to as he’s so loveable and adorable.

Reid Matthews is a geeky mess! 😂 It’s true because he gives 200% to his job as the IT guy for Bentley, Maddox and Aiden. There are many, many nights where he works straight through! 😳 As an ex-con, he is a brilliant hacker but he doesn’t feel worthy of Becca Holden, the new marketing manager for the company.

"I would have shown you how much you deserved to be loved then. Just like you do now."

The men of BAM are smoking hot. The women they fall for are incredible. And their storylines are perfection. But I'd be lying if I said that despite all of this, I was waiting patiently (or not so patiently, mostly) for Reid's story from the very first time he was mentioned in Melanie Moreland's Vested Interest series.

Misjudged, misrepresented, misunderstood. Reid is a new beginning for a broken heart. From birth he was labeled a washout, but he was destined for so much more. Moreland went beyond the battered man and delved into his strengths. Love was only a misstep away and he found it in a bunch of tough guys with a lot of heart. The men of BAM gave him the power to dream. Finding Becca gave him a treasure more precious than any gold. It taught him how to love. I loved Aiden, Bentley and Maddox but I fell ...more

In those offices he finds one hell of a lot of firsts as he starts to rebuild his life. In the middle of all these firsts his life is thrown for a loop or 2, which he struggles with simple because he ha

5 star Review Reid (Vested Interest #4) by Melanie Moreland

If you need a computer hacked or anything electronic then Reid Matthews is your go to man. A man who has been disillusioned and hurt by life, that is until Aiden took a chance on him and offered him a job. Now he has finally found his place and a family; something he always longed for.

He has always been labelled a loser, no one ever wanted him until the men of BAM and their extended family welcomed him in. My heart just about broke for R

I don’t even know where to begin with Reid. I just wanna wrap him up in a blanket and hug him forever. His story made me laugh, cry and feel all the emotions. There’s nothing stronger than a man that learns from his past mistakes and I feel that Reid understands, that where he came from does not define who he is and he threw his struggles can make a better life for himself. I love the relationship between Reid and Becca. I thought that he was just the right amount of innocent and she was just th ...more

This book will give you all the feels. Seriously. You'll laugh out loud. Trust me, you will. Then, you'll tear up too. Emotion overload.
But, this book is worth it. I fell in love with Reid in the other books of this series: Bentley, Aiden, and Maddox...all great books.
Reid is the IT expert for BAM. He's had a troubled life with no family until he meets the men of BAM. They become brothers. And treat each other like brothers with support and giving each other a hard time. Even a few dance lessons

So many feels for Reid. A lost boy in a man’s body is a good way to describe how he was when he first started at BAM. He has come a long way and does deserved to be loved, even if he didn’t think it. As always Melanie has sucked me in. Another piece of my heart has been stolen by another BAM boy. And Sandy should just be called mom by then since she adopted each of them as her children in her heart.

Let me start out by saying REID IS MINE! Melanie even said so....

Reid Mathews is the uber-genius kid who helps keep the men of BAM afloat. They gave him a chance when no one else would and he's shown his appreciation and loyalty time and time again. So now the guys of BAM are ready to help Reid when he seems to have a problem talking to Becca, the newest member of the team, who has Reid in knots over.

Becca seems to have a crush on Reid too and so the two hit it off. But Reid has a secret or two
