He’s the man she loves to hate . . .
Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. Shots lined up at the bar? Bring it. Hot stranger on the hook? Come on down. What this party does not need is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seven years ago.
She’s the woman he has to have . . .
Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger, not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task. For one week, he’ll make her honeymoon-for-one a sizzling party for two.
Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time . . .
But the taboo they’re breaking is only the beginning . . . and Flynn’s part in Liv’s wedding debacle could bring about their end.

Review: Aaaaaand Kate Meader is back with another sexy slick read.
For those of you who read the preceding book in the series, Taking The Score, you will have already had a glimpse at Flynn and Olivia’s explosive relationship and in this book that relationship, well, explodes, both figuratively and orgasmically.
The start of the book finds Olivia drowning her sorrows at a hotel bar on her wedding day after finding her fiancé in the throws of it with her maid of honour, and like any self-respecting woman in her situation, Olivia is determined to make up for lost time by having lots of one-night stands. Enter Flynn, a perfect candidate and willing to be used for his body – the only downside being the oodles of history between him and Olivia and of course the ever-present “bro-code”.
Whilst the fact that Flynn’s best friend Brody is Olivia’s brother is of course the source of some tension, Meader does what most authors do not in this trope and avoids making it the main source of conflict between the couple. That honour belongs to the fact that throughout their friendship, Olivia feels that Flynn has been blowing hot/cold and coming in and out of her life as he pleases. Now Flynn has to prove that he is here to stay.
This book is a Brazen and needless to say full of sexy, hot scenes so best avoided as a lunchtime read at work!
