Bookworm Express: Fraternizing – C. C. Brown

Hello and Welcome back to the Bookworm Express on Scribbler Alliance with a new book recommendation for this week.

This week’s recommendation should come with a warning for strong sexual content, violence and coarse language, but other than that, it is a book for those of you who love a good story of forbidden romance.

Fraternizing, a novel by C. C. Brown, is a book that will hold you captive until you have read the last line, and then you’ll find yourself reaching for its sequel, Compromising.


C. Brown gives us the ultimate match in Sgt. Alex Cruz, an instructor in the United States Marine Corps and Pfc. Cassie Bennett. For Alex, the Marine Corps has been THE way of living his life. Any and all rules set by the Corps have been set in stone for him … until Cassie Bennett. Strong-willed, headstrong and utterly beautiful Cassie makes him question everything; including the no fraternization part of the Marine code of conduct.

A symbol of female empowerment, Cassie, has always been free-minded. She promises herself to strive to do her best at the Corps. What she doesn’t take into account, however, is that the tall, dark, handsome stranger she met at a bar will turn out to be her instructor.

If you want to read a story that will make you feel raw with emotions, this is a good one to start with. The way Brown has worded this couple’s struggles to keep things professional, their jealousy, their attraction for each other and above all … their love, makes it a truly worthy read.

Here’s a little excerpt from Fraternizing by C. C. Brown for you to tantalize your senses:


“You just made a real man out of me. I’ve never done that before.”

An apprehensive grin stretched across her mouth. I could tell she was both elated and confused.

“You’ve done something to me, Blondie. Something foreign and weird, but oh so good.”

“Come here.” She motioned with her finger, and I worked hard to sit up with her still on top of me. My abs flexed hard, bulging abs protruding from my midsection as I was finally able to sit up, using her waist as a stronghold. She kissed me—not hard, not soft, but just right. I worked my fingers through her hair, removing it from her face as she pulled away and looked into my eyes. “You don’t even realize how much that means to me.”


So if you are of legal age and do not mind coarse language, I suggest you give this book a try. It’s a story of forbidden love that will make you question what you truly believe in.
