Blurb:

Falling in love is the easy part, staying together…now that’s the biggest challenge of all.

Everything is finally working out for Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard. They’re in love and running B-Squad Security and Investigations. They’ve planned the perfect operation to take down the dangerous drug kingpin who’s kidnapped one of Bianca’s best friends. Then Taz’s wife—who was supposed to be his ex-wife—shows up on the eve of the big rescue mission and threatens to blow up his and Bianca’s happily ever after.

The last thing Bianca wants after the revelation that Taz might still be married is to have to spend time with her former live-in boyfriend who never told her he’d ever been married in the first place. But it’s too late to change plans. To save her friend, she has to swallow her hurt and go undercover with Taz as a newlywed couple at an exclusive resort. The only thing Taz wants is Bianca and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to win her back. But when it’s his life on the line, will it be too late for him to show her that his past is over and she’s the only woman for his future…

Brazen is a stand alone novel and the first full novel in the B-Squad series. However, if you want to find out how Taz and Bianca met, check out Bullet Proof, a novella set in Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie Security world.

 

Review:

Bullet Proof almost felt more like a teaser for book #1 ( Brazen) than a story in its own right, but it does its job of introducing us to Bianca and Taz and setting up the series (book one especially) quite nicely. There are a few pretty steamy scenes here, even in such a short book, and a decent mystery.

You could definitely read Brazen without having read this, but it does fill in a few holes for you…and if you’ve read this one, you’ll most likely want to know what will happen next, because there are friends to rescue and bad guys still to stop at the novella’s end.

Even just from the brief intro we get here to Taz’s “brother” Keir and Bianca’s BBF Vivian, I want to see more of them. Fortunately they’ll be back in book #1 (though sadly, their own books are neither #2 or #3 in the series–I see your plan here, Ms. Avery! ;))

Rating: 3 1/2 stars / C+

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Teaser 2

Title: Bullet Proof (A Mackenzie Family Novella)
Series: B-Squad #.05
Author: Avery Flynn
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: February 16, 2016
Format: Digital/Paperback
ISBN: 978-1-942299-30-1

Blurb:

From Liliana Hart’s New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by best-selling author Avery Flynn…

“Being one of the good guys is not my thing.”

Bianca Sutherland isn’t at an exclusive Eyes-Wide-Shut style orgy for the orgasms. She’s there because the only clue to her friend’s disappearance is a photo of a painting hanging somewhere in Bisu Manor. Determined to find her missing friend when no one else will, she expects trouble when she cons her way into the party—but not in the form of a so-hot-he-turns-your-panties-to-ash former boxer.

Taz Hazard’s only concern is looking out for himself and he has no intention of changing his ways until he finds sexy-as-sin Bianca at the most notorious mansion in Ft. Worth. Now, he’s tangled up in a missing person case tied into a powerful new drug about to flood the streets, if they can’t find a way to stop it before its too late. Taking on a drug cartel isn’t safe, but when passion ignites between them Taz and Bianca discover their hearts aren’t bulletproof either.
