I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. In no way has this swayed my review or my rating!
I always want to get my hands on every single Entangled Brazen title that crosses my path. The problem with that is they are usually on one side of the spectrum or the other for me. I either love them deeply or I can't stand them. There's rarely a gray area. No More Mr. Nice Guy is the Brazen title to blow all those other titles I've ever loved before out of the water for me. It's not often that I read a book and immediately feel the need to get my thoughts down. It usually takes time to process and get my thoughts together before I write a review. But upon finishing this book I've felt the need to stop everyone I see and say, "I have this book you really need to read..." Am I a bit smitten? Understatement of the year. It's going to be absolute torture waiting for publication because I want everyone to read it right now so I can talk about all the things! Sigh.
This book has the whole package. First of all the characters. I love finding authors who can write characters that pull at my heart. Especially when it's not just the main characters. Josie is sweet and endearing and as she comes out of her shell she had me grinning and thinking yes girl! She's become an instant favorite of mine. And Mack. Oh sweet lord...this guy. He's funny and oh so sweet and a good guy...but when he wants to be bad...there are no words. But then there's a couple secondary characters that stick with you too. Mack's sister Sal who's funny and bossy and loveable. Even a young girl named Molly stuck with me. She was in for like 2 minutes but her scene was so powerful in a sense that it stuck with me.
Second we have the story itself. I absolutely love the whole 'falling for the best friend's older brother' and/or 'the older brother's best friend' tropes. I guess you could always throw in the friends to lovers one since in their case it works as well. It wasn't full of cliches and cheesyness. It was sweet, it was an inferno of hotness, it was funny, it was everything. If I didn't have about 8 other review books that I need to attempt to get read and reviewed also for the 29th I'd be flipping back to the beginning and reading it again. No joke. It was Just. That. Good.
Since Josie and Mack's story started with a list she made, I'm closing my review with one of my own. The reasons this book became an instant favorite of mine. Well at least some I'm sure I'm going to forget something and kick myself later...
- Josie's sexual to-do list.
- Mack is a veterinarian.
- Mack is snuggling a bunny within minutes of meeting him. (I've lost my heart ♥)
- He's Australian. (Well they all are but...sigh...)
- Barry goddamn White.
- Angry alley sex (Oh trust me. It's a good thing)
- Number ten.
If I keep going the list may get a bit dirty so I'll just leave it at that. Now when you read it, and really...you must, you can check them off and think ohh she was right about that one!
Thank you so much Entangled Brazen for approving me for the review copy!!!
