When you are in the mood for a quick read that crosses off your need for something with a bit of sweet and more than a pinch of spice, then this is a book for you. Kat Austen delivers a book that is full of sexual tension and need, with a teeny bit of angst and explosive sex. Add the fact that this is also a brother's best friend storyline and you have a winning combination in my opinion.
There is no denying that Jake is all alpha male. His adrenaline junkie profession and protector instinct with a touch of aloofness make him my kinda male character. The constant battle against his attraction to Bree, has Jake in knots for a good portion of this novella. His internal battle between what was once promised and what is staring him in his face gives this story a bit of an edge to it. But what I enjoyed the most about his character was that even if he wouldn't admit it out loud, he was very honest with himself about his feelings for Bree.
Bree's self confidence is the quality that I love reading about in a female. She came into this encounter with Jake with a plan that she needed to see fulfilled. That she was just as knocked on her ass as Jake once in his presence was very clear. Yet, when it came time to lay down her chips, she knew that she had to do what was right for her - damn the consequences.
The best way to describe the relationship between these two is easy, teasing with a deep undercurrent of sexual tension.
Yet when these two came together it was combustive. There was no containing it and Kat did an awesome job at bringing the heat between these two to life.
As this is a short book, be expected for everything to move at a fast pace. There is no slow burn and there is definitely no filler. But what is promised is delivered - a well written novella that draws the reader in quickly, gives them great characters, a storyline that flows easily and enough to steam to leave you satisfied. I now have a new author that will fix my quick and dirty cravings, can't wait for more.
P.S. I am also dying to know what author is behind this super secret pen name.
