Release Date: February 26, 2019
How the hell did I, the perpetual bachelor, end up
accidentally married in Vegas—to my client?
As soon as I find out who’s trying to kill her, we’ll get a
quickie divorce…or will we? I was never supposed to be married. I was never
supposed to fall in love. I was never supposed to put her in danger.
But now that she’s back in my life I wonder if some things
shouldn’t stay in Vegas.
To keep her I’ll have to fight for her. Good thing I’m
brazen enough to do just that.
This is the second book in a 2 book duet, and you can read my review of Brazen here.
Still Brazen picks up right in the scene where Brazen ended. Someone is trying to kill Hailey, daughter of a perfume empire. Her life is turned upside down and she doesn’t know why. She can’t trust her parents or her brother. But she knows that she has Oskar and his team and that she can count on them.
I really enjoyed this ending to the duet. The story really picked up more in this book and I liked it better, but it made the overall story in both books better also. I do recommend reading them both at the same time, especially since the first book ends on such a cliffhanger. Oskar and Hailey are fire together. And all the women in the group are phenomenal! The girls-only mission was perfection.
One thing that bugged me a little, and I can’t say too much because of spoilers, but it isn’t really explained how Bad Guy knew Hailey was Oskar’s wife and the team members’ real names. Oskar said he must have been watching them for a long time, but if their backgrounds are supposedly untraceable, watching wouldn’t be enough!
Overall, this was a fantastic ending to a fun, action-packed duet.
NYT & USA Today bestselling author M. Malone lives in the Washington, DC metro area with her husband and their two sons. She holds a master’s degree in Business from a prestigious college that would no doubt be scandalized by how she’s using her expensive education.
Independently published, she has sold more than 1/2 million ebooks in her two series, THE ALEXANDERS and BLUE-COLLAR BILLIONAIRES. Since starting her indie journey in 2011 with the runaway bestselling novella “Teasing Trent,” her work has appeared on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists more than a dozen times.
She’s now a full-time writer and spends 99.8% of her time in her pajamas.
USA Today bestselling author Nana Malone’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense novel she “borrowed” from her cousin.
It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick-butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination constantly channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
While she waits for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as brazen and kick-butt as she thinks she is.
