USA Today bestselling author Talia Hibbert returns with another charming romantic comedy about a young woman who agrees to fake date her friend after a video of him “rescuing” her from their office building goes viral...

Danika Brown knows what she wants: professional success, academic renown, and an occasional roll in the hay to relieve all that career-driven tension. But romance? Been there, done that, burned the T-shirt. Romantic partners, whatever their gender, are a distraction at best and a drain at worst. So Dani asks the universe for the perfect friend-with-benefits—someone who knows the score and knows their way around the bedroom. 

When big, brooding security guard Zafir Ansari rescues Dani from a workplace fire drill gone wrong, it’s an obvious sign: PhD student Dani and former rugby player Zaf are destined to sleep together. But before she can explain that fact to him, a video of the heroic rescue goes viral. Suddenly, half the internet is shipping #DrRugbae—and Zaf is begging Dani to play along. Turns out his sports charity for kids could really use the publicity. Lying to help children? Who on earth would refuse? 

Dani’s plan is simple: fake a relationship in public, seduce Zaf behind the scenes. The trouble is, grumpy Zaf is secretly a hopeless romantic—and he’s determined to corrupt Dani’s stone-cold realism. Before long, he’s tackling her fears into the dirt. But the former sports star has issues of his own, and the walls around his heart are as thick as his... um, thighs. 

The easy lay Dani dreamed of is now more complex than her thesis. Has her wish backfired? Is her focus being tested? Or is the universe just waiting for her to take a hint?

Book 2 of the Brown sisters!

While I was absolutely in love with Chloe Brown, book 1, it was for biased reasons due to her and I both having chronic illnesses. Yet, I still am such a fan of the sardonic and witty humor that is written throughout the authors series of Brown sisters and I adored Dani and her fear of being hurt by another man. Her pretend and then real relationship with Zaf was so poignant and resonates with anyone who’s been hurt and has found the right person who is steady reliable and compassionate and loves you for everything you are. Perfect ending I rooted for those 2 the entire book. Cannot wait for # 3 EVIE’S story!

Must Read!

Talia Hibbert dazzles once again with the second installment of her Brown Sisters series. Sweet, witty, and tenderly poignant, “Take a Hint, Dani Brown” follows a steamy fake relationship between Danika and Zafir. The banter between these two is electirc! It’s such a fun read that you’ll breeze right through it, and then lament that it’s over. Can’t wait for the next one.

Super Fun Diverse Romance

Grab this right now!! Seriously, go get your copy!

Not only is TAKE A HINT, DANI BROWN funny, witty, well written, and has a super cute cover, but Zaf is so effortlessly sexy, that I fell head over heels in love with him! He lit me on fire and had me melting into a puddle! Yup, all at once! He’s that good!

Dani is my spirit animal...right down to her zodiac sign! She’s phenomenal and hilarious. The total embodiment of an amazing friend and epic love interest. She certainly kept Zaf on his toes with her antics. I adored her!

The trope is one of my faves. The writing is beyond fantastic. It’s emotive and flawless. This book freaking rocked!

Flawless execution with some laugh out moments seamlessly woven into the dialogue
Look no further. This is the book for you!

Highly recommended!
