He’s the only man she didn’t see coming…
Four years after escaping her abusive ex-husband, Kim finally believes she’s in control of her life and her emotions and she’s determined to never risk either again with a man. She has a great home, a job as a security specialist which she loves, and Jake for a best friend. But things are a tad lonely in the sex department, so she decides to embark on a no-strings-affair with one of her hot co-workers. And who better to help her remember how to lure a man than her best friend?
Jake has wanted Kim from the moment he first saw her, but four years ago, she was too young and too damaged. So he kept her close and he kept her safe, offering her a job in his security company and the training to feel safe again, and he bided his time. But now, after the long wait, if she imagines he’s going to stand by while she seduces some other guy… Never going to happen.

This book kept me grinning throughout the whole book :)
A bit different to the norm as it is the guy in love with the girl and the girl being completely clueless! Don't get me wrong, Jake was no pushover
Are you turning into some sort of caveman?
4.5 - It's set In the UK Stars...
I think this is the first Brazen book I have read that is set in the UK, so extra love just for that.
Jake and Kim were both likeable, the sex was hot and plentiful and the storyline had a few twists and turns.

Aslında puanım üç buçuk. Başı çok güzeldi. Yani ilk %25'i. Sonra biraz tanıdık hale gelmeye başladı. Erkek karakterin deli gibi aşık ve ikna etmeye çalışan, kadın karakterinse biraz daha baskın, güçlü, kendi ayakları üzerinde duran ve ikna edilmesi gereken kişi olması hoşuma gitti.
Daha kitabın ba... ...more

Bir erkeğin ince düşüncelerini hissetmek, okumak içime işledi. Bu kadar korumacı, bu kadar sabırlı, bu kadar işini bilen bir adam... Var olduğuna bile emin değilim. Yaptığı oyunlar... Ufak süprizleri gerçekten çok çok iyiydi. Kasanın içindeki diyorum, meraklanın! Çünkü o kısmı okurken sırıtmadan... ...more
