M. Malone & Nana Malone!
How the hell did I, the perpetual bachelor, end up accidentally married in Vegas—to my client?As soon as I find out who’s trying to kill her, we’ll get a quickie divorce…or will we? I was never supposed to be married. I was never supposed to fall in love. I was never supposed to put her in danger.
But now that she’s back in my life I wonder if some things shouldn’t stay in Vegas.
To keep her I’ll have to fight for her. Good thing I’m brazen enough to do just that.

Last month the first installment ended on a cliffhanger. Happily, this release picked up right where the first left off. Still experiencing a barrage of confusion, more questions were left lingering than after a parliamentary debate.Is Evan up to his teeth in this or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time? What is her father hiding from her? Why on earth is her mother such a flake and so distant? Who is trying to kidnap and or kill our little perfume creator?
All valid questions and all are answered by the time this book hits ‘The End’. Most had a very satisfactory answer to them, but one left a very strange taste in my mouth. I love Blake Security and the cacophony of characters who call it home. Sadly, I just didn’t quite get the why and what of the biggest question in this duet.
These authors create characters that are realistic and fully fleshed out. Matthias, Noah and the gang are all complex people. I so wished I had read their books; that will be corrected as soon as physically possible. They’re all about putting right what is wrong and looking out for one another. There is a very fun part in this book that involves the women of their lives, a leather incident and explosives. That is all I am saying. I completely enjoyed that part. I would hate to run into any of these women in a dark alley; even Lucia is dangerous if cornered.
‘“Well, as for me, I always have my piece on.” She opened her purse and pulled out a sparkly gun.
Lucia snorted. “You bedazzled your gun?”
JJ grinned. “I gave it some pizzazz. Just because I’m carrying doesn’t mean I can’t be stylish.”’
Oskar continually battles his dark past and the monsters that lurk at the edges of the light. We go more in depth into his past. He isn’t alone; Hailey isn’t weak nor breakable. Considering the environment she grew up in I find her tacitly strong. She has endured so much and yet she never cracks. When Oskar finally brings his skeletons out of the closet, Hailey joins hands with him and is his port in a storm.
‘She’d reminded me of what was good and right in the world, and I’d known that I wanted more than money and a life on the run.’
Anybody builds their life from the ground up. The foundation must be strong and long set before building commences and yet like Hailey, even when your foundation is wrecked by disaster after disaster, it doesn’t have to be the end. New beginnings can be born from crumbled and eroded cement.
‘Welcomed it. Welcomed that quiet ownership. I needed this. A few weeks with him had ruined me for anyone else, ever again. Good thing he loved me.’
This isn’t a book including insta-love, this is a tale of second chances and new growth, rediscovery and birth. Of laying roots down and seeing life through brightly lit windows, as corny as that sounds it’s not meant to be. Two completely different people find each other and in return, they discover their true selves. These authors are one-clicks for me and I’m never disappointed by what I find. The Brazen Duet has given me new thoughts and feelings about characters I hadn’t fully gotten to know before and for that, I am truly grateful. Thank you, ladies, for once again bringing us mere readers an all-consuming, realistic couple with crazily real friends and family.
