Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Down & Dirty is the sixth and final book in the Men of Haven series by Rhenna Morgan. I have been an obsessed fan of this series since the first book. This band of brothers by choice has captivated and held my heart. They are all strong, alpha men who love with their whole hearts and will do whatever is necessary to keep the people they love safe, whether it is inside the confines of the law, or not. Honor is the only rule they adhere to.

We’ve known Axel McKee, the Scottish bad boy, througho
Mindy Lou's Book Review
What a way to end the series! I loved it! This is exactly what I like to see in a hero who was a playboy until he meets his heroine. Once Axel laid eyes on Lizzy, he never looked at another woman. His devotion to her and the way he went at her speed was just AMAZING! I wouldn't change a thing!

Reading about Axel in the previous books of the series, he seemed like the last guy to every settle down. I think that's what makes how he handled Lizzy so wonderful. He was protective, possessive, caring a
I absolutely love the men of Haven! Each of these books just pulls me further and further into their wonderful world of support and unconditional love through family and friends. This one by far showcased that quality more than the others, in my opinion.

If ever a heroine needed what the family of Haven have to offer, it was Lizzy.


Having been taken advantage of in the past as well as never knowing the true sense of having family to rely on, I found myself choking up each time the realization of

TITLE: Down & Dirty
AUTHOR: Rhenna Morgan
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
FORMAT: ebook
STAR RATING: 3.5 Stars


DOWN & DIRTY was not at all what I expected. In a six-books-series you form opinions about side characters, going by the hints and facts the author drops along the way. This story was the one I was looking forward to and anticipating the most.

From the previous books we know that Axel is the eternal bachelor, a man who enjoys his kink and women,
***5 ‘Family’ Stars***

I’ve loved and ADORED these books and the characters that run wild through them from the start and was, obviously, excited to get my hands on this one, not only because Axel was going to finally be brought to his knees, but because I just wanted to hang out with the Haven crew as a whole because they are simply a hell of a lot of fun and I wasn’t at all disappointed in any way. In fact, as a while, this is my favorite of the series because it gave me everything I had been

This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Carina Press in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Down and Dirty is the sixth book in the Haven Brotherhood series and man I am loving this series so much, its similiar to a MC setting but not really a full MC. But there is a strong brotherhood, and I just love the two “mothers” that these men took care of and didn’t judge their lifestyle

Elizabeth and Axel’s story was everything I wanted and then some! Axel’s sexy, Scottish self and silver tongue more then met his match with Elizabeth’s feisty temperament and artistic personality. Their chemistry was intense and insanely hot! The time Axel invested building foundations of trust with Elizabeth while simultaneously sinking her deep into the folds of his crazy, supportive, and rambunctious family simply melted my heart like nothing else! And while I enjoyed seeing the rest of the c ...more

I have loved every single one of the books in the series, and cannot really believe that this is book 6! I really recommend that you read them in order - and I can say that these are in my Absolute must reread list, as I am sure that reading one after the other will be a delicious experience.

Lizzy is about to experience what being part of the Haven family is all about, and we can catch up with them all in the process. S

"You've got the heart of a poet hiding behind all that brawn and manly bluster."

I accidentally happened upon this author when I discovered the first Men of Haven book and I fell hard. She blew me away and I've loved every single book in this series. I enjoyed Rhenna Morgan's writing so much that I even read a few of her paranormal books, and I don't read that genre. And guess what, I loved them!

I met Axel a long time ago and I've been enjoying his sexy Scottish accent very much. I've been an
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Down & Dirty by Rhenna Morgan is book six in the Men of Haven Series. This is the story of Izzy and Axel. I felt this could be a standalone book if you wish to do so. I have loved the books I have read in this series, so I would also recommend them too. Axel has also made appearances in the books but again it shouldn't slow you down from enjoying their story.

This book takes me back to Prince charming with a twist. I love a man who takes charge and don't stop until your happiness is secure. Axel is that man. He love hard and is sensitive to his partners need. I start this book and did not stop until it was finish. If you want a great read with a little Dom play, this is your book and you won't regret it. Great job Rhenna
“No one calls me Elizabeth. It doesn’t fit. Never has.”
One look. Ruthless determination behind his eyes and an uncompromising firmness to his lips. “It fits you perfectly. You’re just afraid to wear it.”

Strap in, ya’ll. It’s a one-way ticket to Swoonsville!

Down & Dirty by Rhenna Morgan was absolutely delightful! You can always count on alphas—male and female! Every single character rocks the alpha and beta vibe that makes them so relatable and delectable. Yes, please!—lots of humor, loads of

Axel does love to cover his bases, “because, Elizabeth, I’m done waiting, and I wanted all my cards out on the table before I make you mine.” Axel just has a sexy accent, “ah, lass. Ye’ve always got something edible for me. I think we proved that yesterday mornin’, but I’m happy tae remind ye again if ye need tae learn the lesson again.” I liked this book, I loved Axel.

I was also gifted with an ARC from Rhenna & to say I was shocked then was on cloud nine was an understatement!!

Rhenna over the couple of years has become one of my go to Authors & is my top 4 favourites. There are stories where you feel like you are over seeing the story then there are stories where you feel like you apart of the book.
That is exactly what Rhenna's books do for me & I wanted to stay in Axel's book for ever (happy sigh)

Perfect title as Axel gets Down and Dirty to protect and claim Elizabeth, the musician that’s stolen his heart. I loved getting to revisit the men of Haven and the women who dared to love them.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
This is the sixth book in the Men of Haven series. With each book about one of the men, we also get a glimpse of the other men of the Haven family too. This is Axel McKee's story and the one I have been waiting for.
Axel has been watching Lizzy and her band for a while now but he never felt the need to step in and give her assistants until the night he overheard the bar owner trying to underpay her for t

*I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I’m not even going to sugar coat this one. I’ve been waiting for Axel’s story since this series started and I couldn’t be more satisfied....even though I know we’re nearing the end of this series (were running out of Haven Men 😩).

Axel is one of the many Haven Brothers. In fact, many might agree that he and Jace were the originators. Having come from a not-so-great childhood and vowing to take care of his family, he’s done q
I found myself laughing at the start of this one. Axel, the man-whore struck dumb when he meets Lizzy, impressed with her on many levels. I like that the didn't immediate go after her as a woman, but was more drawn to help her in her career. I loved that Lizzy was a bit leery and made Axel work just to get her one gig. From there things seemed to go full steam ahead. Axel knew she was the one for him, so of course he involves the family, they all swoop in and help him help Lizzy with her career ...more

Like many readers, I’ve been waiting for Axel’s story with bated breath, and while the wait has been painful, I’m so glad that the primary characters have now been accounted for. I must admit that Axel’s story was not what I was expecting, (not that I really know what I was expecting anyway), but I suppose I can best describe it as more subdued than I anticipated based on the previous books in this series. Don’t get me wrong, the book is great, but it was lacking the same level of intensity and ...more

Book 6 in the Haven Brotherhood, Down & Dirty gives us Axel’s story. I have been waiting for this book and although not as intense as the other it certainly didn’t disappoint. I loved the story and the characters and look forward to recommending and reading more by this fabulous author.

Just read this book, OMG! it's so entertaining. Love the Axel & Sylvie accent! I love that Lizzy can hold her own, now that she has FAMILY. I love that REX can help Lizzy understand Axel. Will the mom's (Ninette and Sylvie) get their own book? I would love to see the guys try to change their mom's opinions.

So well written i could not put it down. Read the whole book in 1 day. Rhenna Morgan thank you for writing this book. Big hugs for your struggles and i am in complete awe that you were st
This is the last book in the Men of Haven series. I want to tell you it’s been a really wild ride. I am kinda sad to see these characters go. So it hurts me to tell you that Axel’s book, the surly, mysterious, co-leader of Haven, just didn’t work for me. It was only toward the end of the book that made up for the immense power imbalance that made this book hard for me to get on board. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a bad book. It was just a character thing for me. While all the men in Haven are ...more

4.5 Stars!

Finally, we get Axel's story! I have been waiting to see what this hot Scot is like and the author does not disappoint. Of course Axel has a history, all of the men of Haven do, but oh what a soft gooey inside he has under all that rough.

Once Axel lays eyes on musical phenom Lizzy, he knows he wants her for more than just her talent. His slow pace at earning her trust just endeared him to me even more. Great music, a bit of suspense and did I mention--a HAWT Scot??? Seriously.....he's

Men of Haven #6

One of the true pleasures in my life is finding wonderful characters that I would love to know in real life. Each and every book in this series is such a book. Who wouldn’t like to have a “family” of men who have chosen one another to be “brothers” and live by a code of honor that puts family matter what. Add to that the men are HOT and ALPHA and know what they want when they see it and you have a series I eagerly await each book that co

Thank you to NetGalley for granting my request for an ARC of this book. The review below is entirely my own opinion.

In my head, Axel was portrayed by Jason Momoa. Do I need to say more? Hahahaha. But kidding aside, I really liked Axel's story because I am a fan of heroes who are alpha hot, who have a possessive-yet-protective streak a mile wide. So on the book boyfriend scale, Axel hits all the right buttons. He is beyond yummy!

But I must say that I wasn't as in love with Lizzy. (Hence the 4-st
