Relentless Habit (O-Town #1) by Karen Renee

Relentless Habit Blitz Banner



I moved to Orlando for a fresh start.  Nobody could know my secret.  Catching the attention of the hottest DJ in all of Orlando wasn’t in the plan. He’s got moves, and they’re not just good. They are good. Like the beats he spins in the booth, I fall fast for him and his crazy family.  When he finds out about my past, it won’t just break my heart but also crush my soul.


The third time I saw her at a crowded club, I had to have her. After our first kiss, I knew she was a habit I would never want to break. Knowing what she hid from me reinforces what I’ve known for so long. Women cannot be trusted. Even knowing the worst, I can’t stay away from her. But when push comes to shove, will I be able to keep her safe?

Welcome to my spot on the Relentess Habit blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours. This is the first in a new series set in Orlando, Florida.

Cecilia has been trying to get her life back on track. Her lack of confidence and defeatist attitude about her sordid past is understandable and she does start to get stronger by facing her problems head-on, but I guess I wanted her to be stronger with Brock. She let him walk all over her a few too many times for my liking and I would have made him grovel for the douchebag stunt he pulled at his dad’s house. She also needs to work on her goals in life and find a realistic passion. Not working at Walt Disney World for the rest of her life.

Brock is quick-tempered and domineering and after making a complete ass of himself with Cecilia, he did come around and protect and comfort her when she needed it most. However, he just rubbed me the wrong way and I found him immature and lacking compassion when she needed it most. 

There are a couple of other backstories as well with Brock’s mother appearing in his life again after many years absent and I thought the part about Cecilia’s ugly past rearing its ugly head and putting her in danger was overkill and unnecessary. 

Cecilia’s MeMaw and Brock’s dad are great supporting characters as well as other members of both of their families who have or will have books of their own.

Overall, I enjoyed this intriguing plotline between two opposites with sexy scenes, but I just felt the story dragged on and both protagonists needed a bit of growing up to do.  If you like light romances with sexy scenes, surprising secrets, and interesting characters, give this book a try.

Thank you to Ms. Renee for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
