The Nash Brothers, Book 3
Synopsis: He can’t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.
Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?
Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time he’s sneaking into her bed.
Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, he’ll have to admit his feelings for the woman he’d do anything to protect.
What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.
Review: I had a good time with the first two volumes and was curious to finally discover the story of the twins. So it is on Forrest that the story focuses on.
Forrest has always had a crush on Penelope, but she was never interested in him. But time has passed, Penelope has now been a widow for a few years and lives with three children whom she is raising alone. So, Forrest annoys her more than anything and vice versa, but he tries again to see if something is possible between them. And if she remains stuck on their age difference, she still succumbs when he offers her to be friends with benefits, but on one condition: that no one knows about it.
In parallel, we are also following a case that Forrest is trying to solve, it seems that someone in the city is stealing money from several of the city’s companies.
I had a good time again with this story and these characters and I was happy to discover what the author was going to propose for them. Penelope has trouble thinking that she can have a relationship again because of the guilt she feels for her deceased husband. It was as touching to see her take care of her children as best she could. However, it was sad to see that Forrest was doing his best to try to make her succumb while she was doing everything she could to keep things from going any further.
In any case, it was a very good sequel and I am curious to read the story of the twin I have on hand!
