Publisher Description

She's his little sister's best friend—totally off limits. But then again, this tattooed bad boy has never followed the rules.


I can't remember a time when I wasn't in love with Nathan Burns. We met when I was six and twenty years later, I love him still. But he'll never see me as anything other than his little sister's best friend—a pest—if he even thinks of me that much. I've got to face facts. He's not into me. He'll never be into me.

It's beyond time to move on.


I swear I blinked and my little sister's best friend—a woman who's about as off-limits as it can get—grew up. And she's hot as hell. When did that happen? It doesn't help that she's everywhere now—at our weekly family dinner nights, sleeping on my brother's couch next door, lying out in our complex's swimming pool in a barely-there bikini. And who are these losers hanging around her lately? None of them are worthy of the woman she's become. Then again, neither am I.

And when I stumble across her profile on a hook up app, all bets are off.

*Can be read as a standalone*

Can’t get enough of the Burns brothers!

Can’t get enough of the Burns brothers! After getting to know Maddie in the previous installment in this series, I was so excited to see her finally get what she has always wanted as she’s been in love with Nathan Burns since the day she met him. Nathan is truly an explosive individual, which is understandable knowing what he went through at a young age but has met his match in Maddie when she puts her foot down and doesn’t give him what he wants. Always looking to immediately fix things, Nathan doesn’t realize how grown Maddie is until she right in front of him, and when he finds her on a hookup app, he decides to take his shot. It’s comical how Nathan thinks he’s being stealthy trying to conceal his identity, but Maddie has been so in love with him she knows who he is right away and decides it’s a sign to shoot her shot. While I loved that these two finally got together, I found myself more intrigued with Dylan and what’s going on with him as his trouble and problems are what’s causing trouble for Maddie, which brings Nathan to the rescue. While we get most of those answers at the end of this book, I am eager to see what happens in the next installment to Dylan and the backlash it causes. In regard to Maddie and Nathan, I found myself so excited that she got her HEA with the boy of her dreams and that all the heartache was worth it in the end. Can’t wait for the next book!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Love the Burns Brothers

I am so enjoying this series! The brothers' Burns are so dynamic and each has their own strengths and weaknesses. 

This is the story of Nathan and Maddie.

Nathan is the pushy, no holds barred Burns brother. He wants things his way and will do whatever it takes to make it happen, even to his own detriment. He has known Maddie since childhood and has always seen her as a little sister, until one day he doesn't and boy do the sparks fly!

Maddie has had a not-so-secret crush on Nathan since forever.  When she finally realizes that Nathan will never see her any other way, she decides to move on. (Hint, she doesn't get far....) 

The chemistry between Maddie and Nathan is hotter than hot! And it was fantastic to see Maddie break out of her shell and embrace her inner goddess! I love how she stood up for herself.  I also enjoyed how the Love Languages played a huge part of this story! 

This can be read as a stand alone and does wonderfully by itself. Do yourself a favor and read this whole series!  I am so hoping for Dylan's story next!
