A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

Sometimes it’s good to be bad…

When it comes to sex, good girl Skyler Thompson always plays it safe, choosing stable and sedate over wild and thrilling. She doesn’t do one-night-stands, but one look at sinfully sexy Gage Holt and she’s willing to reconsider. He makes her want to be bad for once in her life, and she’s prepared to take what she wants.

Danger follows former MMA fighter Gage Holt like a shadow. Despite his successes as part owner of Sin, an exclusive nightclub in Boston, Gage can’t risk getting involved with a woman, especially one as sweet as Skyler. Still, he can’t resist a taste—and it’s so damn good he has to see her again.

As addicted as he is to her, Gage knows there’s no future for him and Skyler—not with his past lurking in the dark corners of an MMA cage. But Skyler’s tougher than she looks, and she’s ready to fight for her man.

My review 3

Why did I want to read this book?

I read Midnight Pursuits from this author and then found out that she has books in the Entangled Brazen line, which is becoming my go-to for sexy great reads so I had to check out her books.


What worked for me?

I love the how easy a read this one, not to say that it didn’t have substance because it definitely did, but it’s just one of those stories that you don’t realize is nearing its end until you get to that last page. I enjoyed reading Gage and Sky, from their very hot and very intense first meeting, to their non-relationship, and the whole process of falling for each other. This was a relatively short novel so I understood the pacing of the story development but Elle Kennedy definitely has talent when it comes to writing because this was still a very good read. The chemistry was there. The back stories were there. And the pacing, even for a shorter novel, is still definitely okay.


What did not work for me?

I enjoyed this book but even though I still fairly got to know more about Gage and Sky, a small part of me felt like I wanted more. It wasn’t insta-love but I figured the story would have been meatier had there been more. But this might just be me.


My over-all take on it?

A sexy and fun read from Elle Kennedy, you wouldn’t want to miss this series. Crazy chemistry between the characters. Plus, you can’t help but fall a little for Gage, with his tough exterior but gooey heart and for Sky, with her ball-buster attitude and her openness to Gage’s past and to both their faults. Great series starter!


My rating:
