A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
No strings. And no restraints…
Professional football player Bryan Townsend is sidelined for the next two weeks while he recovers from a knee injury. The upside? He'll get to attend his sister's wedding. The downside? He's not sure he'll have a spot on his team when he returns. So when he's confronted by a sexy blast from his past the night of the bachelor party, he sees an opportunity to seduce the very stunning maid of honor.
But Bryan had no clue Jill St. John was still a virgin. Or that she was merely looking to expand her sexual repertoire without having to trust anyone with her heart. But with every encounter, Jill can't help but fall for the man Bryan's become. The clock is running down. If he's to win it all, Bryan must make the biggest play of his career—choosing between his team…or the woman he's always wanted.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!
So I realize that I say this every time with all the other tropes out there but, seriously this time, the whole best friend's older brother/older brother's best friend are my absolute favorites! They make me swoon the hardest and have me wishing I could have had an older brother with sexy friends to drool over through the years...instead of being stuck with a younger one. It's just not the same you know?
Jill is absolutely adorable and I instantly loved her. She's compassionate and has such a big heart. She's sweet and innocent with an inner wickedness that was sexy, funny and endearing all at the same time. I have a bit of a girl crush on her! I loved how she knew exactly what she wanted and she wouldn't let anything stand in the way of getting it. Even the man himself. No was definitely not in her vocabulary. She may have been innocent but bravery was not something she was lacking in the least and she embraced new challenges with an inner strength I don't think I'd have had if I were in her position. I just loved her.
Holy smokes Bryan, excuse me while I go cool off right quick... This guy. Though at times he was a bit too cocky and said the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time, I still fell for him just as quickly as I did for Jill. He's very dominant and filled with alpha male goodness. The moments he'd let his inner caveman slip out and not so subtly stake his claim on Jill my inner bad girl would scream yes! But he wasn't all just dominance and grunting, there was a side of him that was extremely sweet and loving and even a bit broken and vulnerable. I loved that he allowed Jill to see that side of him and opened up to her. It made me feel like no matter how hard he fought with what his heart was telling him, there was hope for him.
This was such a sweet, fun and extremely sexy story. It was the first book I've read by Cari Quinn and I plan on rectifying that immediately. I need to get the first three books in this series and very soon. I've met each of the girls they're about, only two of the very briefly though, and their guys and I can't wait to read their stories. It's a really fun group of friends and siblings and I'm completely hooked on this series.
Thank you Entangled for the opportunity to read and review this book!
