Book Tour (Review + GIVEAWAY): André (The Uncompromising Series #3) by Sybil Bartel

Author: Sybil Bartel

Genre: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Date Publish: October 16th 2017

Goodreads Rating: 4.37


The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.

She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.

Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.

The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.

One shot. One kill.

Hiya bessies!

How are you all?


Bes! I’m on the third book of the Uncompromising series and on the sixth book of Sybil Bartel! And as always, Sybil did her magic! I really, really love her books! I promise to myself that I will read the rest of her works! They’re so good!


Anyway, welcome to my Andre tour!


Let’s start this! 😀


This book is about an ex-marine now bodyguard, Andre! He got tangled with a very dangerous woman. Being with her means signing his own death warrant and keeping her is suicide. But Andre will do everything in his power to protect her and keep her alive. No matter what the cost.


From the first Bartel book I’ve read to the last, so far, Andre will always pop out. He’s just a side character who help his brothers, also ex-marines, and friends. He’s always the one who got their backs whenever they get their selves into some deep shit. Finally, our hot Cuban bodyguard has his own story.


First, let’s talk about Andre.

Out of all the alpha-male Sybil wrote, I think Andre is one of the fluffy one. I know, fluffy and Andre don’t go in one sentence. There’s nothing fluffy about Andre. He’s hard, built, a killer, and very alpha. However, as I read the book from Kendall’s (surprise, surprise! Kendall is his woman) point of view, he feels fluffy. His face would lit up whenever he smiles. And there’s no other alpha-male, both in the series and other, of Sybil that smile as often as Andre. And because of that, I find him fluffy.

Also, he’s the least alpha to all of them, but he is still alpha. I mean, sure he is as scary as the rest but he is not as intimidating. And I think I like that Andre is like that. He is not hard to love.


Let’s go to Kendall.

Bes, this woman is hardcore. Haha! She and Andre are perfect together. If Andre is fluffy, Kendall is all spikey. There’s nothing gentle in this woman. She’s a survivor and she’s very strong despite what happened to her. All the things she do towards Andre, every curse and verbal attacks, all of it were just her defense mechanism. And I seriously understand why that’s her kind of defense mechanism. I think of all the girls all these alpha-males have, Kendall is the strongest. That’s just for me though. I like her character.

I admit that I had a hard time liking Kendall’s character. That’s because she’s so bitchy most of the times. But when her background story was revealed, I understood her. And she’s not hard to like anymore.


I like the story of this book. Well, I actually like all the story of Sybil’s books. But I think I like this more. But not more than my baby Dane’s story. What I like about this is the action on the last part. Well, there not much that happened but I like it because all of the squad is present. And when I say all, I meant all of them including Vega, Brandt, and my baby Marek!


When they were gathered to do their mission of trade, my eyes were practically twinkling as I read this part. All of them were there! It’s like a reunion! And I couldn’t help feel like they were all there as payment for the times that Andre was also there with them when they needed a brother to cover the back. It was so touching and amazing, their friendship.


I kind of miss them, the squad. If it wasn’t a serious scene with life and death situation, I would’ve teared up. Haha! But yeah. it was a very awesome part and you could guess that it’s my favorite one.


And as always, Sybil worked her magic on the fast-paced romance of the book. Bes, I didn’t even noticed that it was fast paced. I was so into it that I practically ignored the timeline of the book. I swear, reading Sybil’s book will set a standard for fast-paced romance books that will be hard to reach. She’s that amazing!


Let’s go to the ending.

I’m gonna be honest, this has the worst ending I’ve ever read from Sybil’s works. It felt short and it didn’t reach my satisfaction. I mean, I was glad they had their HEA but, bes, it was abrupt! I mean, I wanted more! The ending didn’t felt like they’re actually going to live happily ever after. Not like the other books in the series and the other books of Sybil’s in general. Because the ending was abrupt, I was left with a feeling that I wanted more of Andre. I seriously wanted more!



Anyway, to wrap this up, this is still an amazing book. as always, I recommend reading this! I recommend reading all of Sybil Bartel’s works. This is not my last read of her work, that’s for sure. If you bessy is a fan of alpha-male in a fast-paced romance with steamy hot sex scenes, this one is for you. Grab it now!

sybil bartel


Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the
 sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling. She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.
Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…
But Seriously?
Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.
She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.
