As for the actual story it had intrigue, plenty of hot moments and two characters. Who had enough chemistry, to light my kindle on fire. I also thought all the descriptions of the places Noah and McKenzie visited as they tried to fulfill the Bucket List were extremely vivid. So much so I felt like I was experiencing everything first hand. Especially when they were snorkeling and kayaking around the islands. And I really can't wait to get my hands on the next book in this series and find out what happens next. As McKenzie's friend and SEAL Walker takes over part of the Bucket List and heads back to the States to complete it.
I would therefore happily recommend Rogue to others.

I'm generally not a fan of female characters but occasionally along comes a strong feisty woman who isn't needy but still needs a strong man. I can see how McKenzie is supposed to go through this change from being timid to finding her strength but it just didn't ring true for me. Noah, I warmed to a bit more as the story unfolded.
This book definitely has potential as its well written and edited. There's a great basis for a story here but it needs a bit more atmosphere. I think I probably felt this way because for a good duration it's just the two of them.
Walker was intriguing but were given such a tiny glimpse of him, that it's barely enough to whet my appetite.
Of course all this is only my opinion and there will be readers who will love this book. I wish the author all the best in the future.

Insert Noah, who has been tasked to get close to Mackenzie to learn where her brother has hidden guns that his boss has paid a pretty penny for.
This novel brings the action, intensity and mystery for sure. The chemistry is instant for our two leads and you want to find out more about Liam's past. However, as you near the end of the book you realize there isn't enough time to learn all of this - and sure enough, there's a cliffhanger.
If you don't mind cliffhangers, love a good action book and are a fan of BDSM then you should give this a go.

Rogue is a crazy, unique story that will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering, imagining and trying to figure the plot line out before it's revealed. But give up, now, don't resist. Just enjoy the story because you WON'T figure it out. Brynley's mind is one twisted, crazy mind and her story line here is just as evil. My mind is still running with the many possibilities and I have finished the book. But I will say, you can go on a tropical vacation in this book imagining all the beautiful places the characters sail to as Brynley describes each destination in gorgeous detail. It makes you feel like you are right there with the characters as they try to complete their mission.
So we meet McKenzie Preston, young innocent girl who has two close friends who are her family. She has lost her real biological family and these girls are all she has left. McKenzie's brother, Liam, was a Navy SEAL who was killed in combat. He left behind a bucket list of things he wanted to do before he died. Since he couldn't finish them, she decides to check the items off one at a time. Now these are not little everyday items. Try jumping off of a waterfall in Costa Rica, or snorkeling in the Philippines, and diving in Malaysia. But there is one tiny problem for McKenzie. She is scared to death of getting out of her comfort zone. So as the book opens, she is ready to take that first leap and I think she would rather throw up first. Accomplishing this list will be no easy task, but she is determined to do it. Maybe her brother can help her live her life to the fullest. But she can't do it alone. So help is around the corner but is it good, honest help or does she find trouble lurking in the shadows?
Her brother Liam has been suspected of engaging in some illegal activity and the people involved want their products. These bad people think McKenzie knows where their shipment is hiding and send an ex-Navy SEAL, Noah, to find her and their merchandise. But he doesn't plan for the unexpected feelings that develop. Noah has shut off and walled up his heart after losing his family to the drug lords. Now Noah must protect his heart and his life while trying to complete the mission at hand.
The story heats up when there is conflict that the couple encounter. Unknown forces are trying to also find the items and the couple, so you never know when they will have company or conflict as they try to complete the list. The chemistry grows between them and gets very hot. Thank goodness there is water surrounding them for most of the story. You need to cool off after a night on the boat. The scenery is gorgeous and relaxing and the main show on the boat is hotter than you will imagine. I like McKenzie's character, she is timid and shy due to her past but learns to be strong. In a way her brother helps her find strength to be a stronger person and want to be happy and take life by the horns, so to speak. Especially with some of the bucket list items. Noah has a dominating personality who has some internal issues to figure out. Listen to his heart or his head and at the same time, keep them safe from whatever unknown forces are after them. Being an ex-Navy SEAL, you can imagine he has a nice body and a strong personality that can be harsh and demanding at times but it fits his character well.
Walker, Liam's Navy SEAL brother, is introduced later in the story and is there to more or less look after McKenzie. When he catches wind of the adventure McKenzie and Noah are on he steps up to help them. Now with the extra help, there should be some answers. My mind is wandering and I still don't know whether to trust Noah or even Walker. Someone knows something and they aren't talking. I just hope McKenzie doesn't get her heart broken or else I will come after Noah myself. LOL.
I am looking forward to the rest of this series. I need to know the answers to all of my questions. Brynley has left me on the cliff in Costa Rica waiting for answers but I know they will be good when they come!
