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.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it- and you will, Livvie- is to stay this week with me, ” he murmured, his voice a weapon of thong-melting destruction. “We’re gonna fuck every last brain cell out of each other.
Kate Meader is a magician. A wonderfully, addicting smut producing magician. Every book she writes, I end up loving. It’s like the woman custom writes her books just for me. (Shh! Don’t rain on my parade with reality. I like to pretend she does)
I thought I was going to love Olivia’s story when I first met her as the sassy and sarcastic secondary character of Brody’s younger sister in Taking the Score. But you know what? I was wrong! I didn’t just love it. This book blew away all my expectations. I loved every snark filled page.
So what did this book have? EVERYTHING!
A jilted bride hell bent on getting her groove back? CHECK.
She was going to have hot, drunken, impaired-judgement sex with a stranger on her wedding day while wearing her Ver Wang dress and a gorgeous veil.
A broody, dirty talking alpha hell bent on making sure she gets her groove back with him? CHECK.
Am I still the last guy on earth you’d open those pretty little thighs for, Liv?”
And we’re back. “You’re going to need more than an average kissing game to get with me, Cross.”
“Nothin’ average about that kiss.”
She sighed. “Don’t beg. It’s so unTexan.”
“Before the night’s through, sweets, I’ll be hearing your fuck-me-Flynn moans.”
“In your Liv-filled dreams.”
Older brother’s best friend trope? CHECK.
Well, hello there, you look like a bad decision. Come on over and sit a spell.
A whole lot of hate lust? CHECK AND CHECK!!
He was still the hottest piece of ass she’d ever seen. Good thing she could be objective about that. When you know someone is the devil, immunity to his charm is usually built in.
Some of the best banter I’ve read in a long damn while? CHECK!
I’m glad you’re here, because I want you to play my wing girl.”
“Don’t you mean wing man?”
“No, wing girl. You’ve always felt like a sister to me- an older one I despise but still obliged to talk to because, y’know, family.”
Did I mention the sassy banter? And the snark! OH THE SNARK!! MOTHER-EFFING-CHECK!!
You’re so sure you have me, aren’t you? That I’m going to fall into your discksand?”
“Like quicksand. But with your dick.”
To say that I loved Flynn would be a complete understatement because I was obsessed with him. He ticked all of my favorite dirty boxes! Dirty talker? CHECK. Dirty between the sheets? CHECK! Plays dirty to get the woman he wants? CHECK AND CHECK.
Olivia was awesome! This is no wilting wallflower. The woman had one heck of a mouth on her and I loved every sarcasm filled insult she’d hurl Flynn’s way. If you follow my reviews, you already know I’m a sucker for the enemies to lovers thing and these two had it in spades. But I also really loved the history between them. This isn’t your typical Older Brother’s Best Friend trope. Well it was but with a Kate Meader spin. Liv and Flynn grew up together. Her family took him in from his abusive alcholic father and Flynn has never felt like he was good enough for Liv. It didn’t stop him from loving her from afar and it didn’t stop Liv from returning those feelings. But seven years ago everything changed. But now that Liv’s wedding has fallen apart, Flynn knows it’s the one opportunity he has to finally make things right and get a taste of the woman he’s craved for years. And if she’s not enthusiastic about it at first? Well he’s not above playing dirty to get his way.
Give him an inch and he’d give her nine.
Suffice it to say, this may have been my favorite Tall, Dark, and Texan book yet! Way to end the series with a bang, Kate. *waggles brows*
If you’re looking for a super fun and steamy read filled with the best banter, hot sex, even hotter alpha, and a sassy heroine that takes none of his shit; READ. THIS. BOOK.
