Review: Cash (The Barringer Brothers #2) by Tess Oliver

A horrid, unstable childhood and a long stint with Bedlam, an outlaw MC, has left Cash Tremaine hardened, disillusioned and desperate to find a better life. A love of the ocean and a job referral from an old friend take him to the small coastal town of Tucker's Village where he meets Esme Drake. Esme is tough, resilient, independent and impossibly pretty. Cash wonders if he's finally found his place in the world down by the sea, but he soon discovers that even far away from the MC, trouble manages to find him.

A rough life with her father and two brothers has taught Esme Drake to be a survivor and, now more than ever, she wants to be out on her own. For the last few years she has stuck to her plan and Cash Tremaine is the last thing she needs to get in her way. But beneath his intimidating exterior, Cash is a lost soul, looking for a place to escape the unpredictable chaos of life, and Esme finds herself inexplicably drawn to him.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

This book is part of Tess Oliver’s, Barringer Brothers Series.  It can be read as a stand-alone but when read in order gives needed insight into Cash the main character.  Our main characters are both looking for more from than their lives.  Maybe that more is each other!

She works hard to take care of those she cares about.  Since her mother left, Esme has tried to take care of her father and brothers but it has finally reached the point where she can no longer handle their lifestyle.   Sometimes it overwhelms her and she dreams of escaping.  When she meets a bad boy biker and he rescues her from a bad situation she feels that maybe he is the one she has been waiting for. Will Cash stay?  Is this her chance at a happily ever after ending?
Cash is searching for a place to belong.  Somewhere he can fit in and stay a place for a new beginning.  He finds himself on the coast in a small fishing village with the prospects of a job.  What Cash had not expected was Esme!  When he rescues her from an irate shop keeper, he is not prepared for the feelings he has for her.  The more he finds out about her the more he wants to know.  Is this the place he has been looking for?  Can he fit in here or will danger follow him?
