He’s her dirty little secret.

I have my hands full taking care of my little sister and covering for my uncle as ranch foreman. The last thing I need is a Texas princess like Callie Llewellyn getting up in my business and messing with my head.

All I can think of is getting up close and personal with those curves of hers. And being on the edge of discovery makes our quick-and-dirty encounters twice as hot. And that’s all they are—quick and dirty—there’s nothing deeper going on here.

There’s only one rule to keeping my job and a roof over my sister’s head: stay away from the boss’s granddaughter. But I’m not always great at following the rules.

My first book by this author and hopefully not my last.

Right from the beginning I was pulled in and intrigued as to why Callie was in prison and you only find out why later in the plot as you are then taken back to where it all began upto that point.

Cole is the ranch hand and Callie is on a ...more

Loved this book! It was sweet, sexy, and had off-the-charts chemistry. Cole...UNF. Cole was a great brother, man, really he was just a great everything (he's all mine, ladies!). I really loved how caring and kind Cassie was and how she took Cole's sister under her wing. Loved the passion and sparks ...more

Lord have mercy, this man, I mean book, just lasso'd my heart! I was wondering aimlessly looking for a book to read and just so happened to Crack this bad boy open, and boy am I glad. This book pulled me in from the get-go and I just couldn't get enough.. I thought please don't let this be another c ...more

**I received a copy of Branded by Candace Havens from Entangled Publishing and Net Galley in exchange for an honest review**

This is my first book by Ms. Havens and hopefully she'll continue the series with Adi and Uncle Charlie and Callie's grandparents in their own books. I LOVED this book!!! Havin ...more

By 1-Click Addict Support Group September 18, 2016

The cover lured me in and I’m so glad it did!

I admit to being lured into a book, on more than one occasion, by a beautiful cover. Bright colors, an eye-catching title or the occasional bodacious body (for purely artistic reasons, of course!) will grab my attention and talk me into trying a new autho ...more

By Bette September 10, 2016

I really enjoyed this one! Sweet romance, sizzling hot chemistry, nice pace and interesting characters. Callie was a bit whinny for my taste but overall she wasn't too bad. Cole more than made up for her! It was interesting to see how their first impressions of each other were disproved as they got ...more

By Heather August 07, 2016

The guy on the cover reminds me of Scott Eastwood, and for people who don't know Scott Eastwood, go look him up he is one Fine (with a capital F) specimen. Cole is one dominant man, "...he turned me around so that I was against his chest and my *** bumped against his hard-on. “This is what you do to ...more

What's a girl to do when the man of her dreams pushes her away at every turn?

When Callie Llewellyn butts heads one too many times with her grandfather's new foreman, Cole Keller, she decides it's time to change tactics. She might be home for the summe ...more

Branded by Candace Havens

Branded...yes, you will definitely be branded after you read this novel. Cole and Callie may be in the heat of Texas but boy are they generating their own heat down on the ranch.

Cole is acting foreman on Callie's family ranch while his uncle is recovering from an injury. Ca ...more

By FMR Book Grind September 06, 2016


I really really enjoyed this book. It is about 2 young people with completely different upbringings and living completely different lives. On paper they are completely opposite, but In reality they are a perfect match.
What I liked about Cole and Callie is that although they are ...more

By Kendra August 06, 2016

Holy shit. There's really no way to accurately describe what this book did to me. The feels, though!
Callie is awesome. She's kind of bad ass who defies the rich girl stereotype and you really see her come into her own here. She starts off this little meek, shy person on the outside - a super bad ass ...more

By Roxane August 14, 2016

The story line for this book? Wow. Just, wow. I have no words.

Callie. The misunderstood. I confess, I had my objections about her at first. I genuinely thought she would be some rich bitch, who in some realistically cruel twist of fate, got the guy. Blah, blah, blah. Cliché. But no! She turns out to ...more

By Jessica June 08, 2019

okay, so .... #CoverWin **yikes** and it only got better from there. The blur mentions "...quick-and-dirty encounters..." but i beg to differ. They were downright filthy and scorching hot!

The story of Callie and Cole flew by for me. I was excited to see their transformation unfold throughout the pag ...more

By Rachel August 22, 2016

Branded is my first book by this author, but I'll definitely be trying her other books! This was a fun, cute new adult romance with a handsome cowboy as the main love interest - I was hooked just on the cover ;)

I loved Branded, especially the main character Callie! She was funny, hardworking, and s ...more

Loved it! ...more

By Ayekah August 17, 2016

The book is incredibly hot, steamy in all the right places and I love a good cowboy story. Cole is filling in for his Uncle Charlie as ranch manager for Callie's grandparents. Callie is coming home from college on summer break after being put on "probation" for failing her business class. Something ...more

By Lilith August 25, 2016

If you're looking for a light romantic romp with lots of sizzling sex, then this is the book for you. Callie is the match that lights Cole's fire, no matter how much he tries to stamp out the flames. I found Callie's humour particularly engaging and Cole's unconditional love for his sister moving. A ...more

Oh so enjoyable! Sexy, funny, and adorable all in one! The only downside I really have it the chemistry the two main characters have. They interact and we know that they find each other attractive and all and then eventually fall ...more

Kitty's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

What a surprise Branded was. The Prologue peaked my interest and the ending was like a fairy tale. From start to finish, I smiled, laughed and had a wonderful time with Callie and Cole. There’s was a love that was inevitable, unstable and down-ri ...more

By J August 09, 2016

"Branded" is the first book I have read by Candace Havens and I am glad to have been introduced to her work.

I enjoyed the book but wish the blurb had hinted that the MC's were so young (h was only 19!). It really made them sound older. I like New Adult but not quite that "New". That being said it w ...more

By Kamy September 26, 2016

This book should have come with a disclaimer.Warning, be prepared to pull an all nighter. I was hooked from the beginning. It wasn't long before I was wanting to be branded by Cole myself. After all a super hot cowboy, with daddy issues, someone who is book smart, protective, has an amazing butt tha ...more

By Karen August 11, 2016

Branded was a sexy, emotional and thoroughly enjoyable quick read; with interesting characters that were much more mature than expected for their age, suffering understandable angst over the consequences their secret liaisons may impose on those they love.

While this was my first read by Ms Havens, t ...more

By Tracie August 12, 2016

Branded is a sexy read, with its emotional angst and great storyline it had me gripped from beginning to end. I will definitely be looking to read more by this author
