It’s weird because the cosmos always hand me books one after another or one close to another with a similar problem amongst the characters or same name, something in common. I mention it because the dynamic which produces the Blackout Trio is one that I had just read about in another book of another genre–I can’t tell you as it spoils both books, but the universe is weird. That’s all I can say.
When you are as jaded and bored as Jameson Filano, you need a little something to light up your life; oddly enough, for her, it’s a party where the lights go out. Of course, it’s not just power failure but also the three powerhouse personalities in the room that fascinate her until her kidnapping and subsequent trip to the beach, which ends in more inquisitiveness. But life goes on in her world, and no one even notices the time that she’s gone. Her world tilted a little, and no one else saw. C’est la vie.
Brielle Bishop is supposed to be a pawn in Royce Brayshaw’s plans for payback. That would work if she didn’t shake his world up five minutes after meeting him.
Okay, peeps, this book put me through the wringer. I laughed. I got pissed off. I cried my ever-loving eyes out. Royce has always been a mess, and his book could not be anything other than a love story of epic messy proportions. You love him, and you know he is going to eff it up from the start.
I didn’t understand the animosity between Royce and Bishop that sets up the plot, but you need to have some crisis to have a story. Still, I loved Brielle, and she is a unique character to this series, very different from the earlier heroines. It’s nice not having an in your face female. Something softer for the most in your face Brayshaw is a plus. But watching Royce fight himself while all the previous MCs pulled for him and tried to get him to disengage his head from his bottom was ironic.
Title: Be My Brayshaw (Brayshaw #4) Author: Meagan Brandy Genre: Romance Release Date:03 June 2020
“Cross one, cross all.”
That’s the Brayshaw way. She should have realized this before sliding into our world with secrets too big to bury. She didn’t and now the target is on her back. The day her lies came crashing down, I should have forced her out. Instead, I locked her in, and with the promise I would never be hers. I resisted, fought against us. I caved. I tasted what became my newfound favorite flavor and fell hard for the little liar. But then the depth of her treachery reveals itself, and with it a reminder. Our town is a twisted place, and with truth comes trouble. In the blink of an eye, my world is split at its core, and I’m faced with an impossible decision, one that leads to a single outcome…
