Review:
This is my second Tawny Weber book and I am loving it.  This book follows two brother Zane and Xander who are two of the top Navy Seals.  The brothers are home for a high school reunion in which they are going to be honored.  They are also reunited with old classmates.   They both are always up for a challenge so when one friend from high school challenges them to get a date with Quinn they both accept.

The story is told in two books.  The first book follows Zane who ends up meeting Vivian one of his friend’s Mike sister.  Zane can’t stay away from Vivian even though there is a bet going on with another woman. I guess the major issue arise is Zane isn’t too sure he wants to tell Mike what is going on yet and he isn’t sure of what is going to happen in the future.

The first book is told from the perspective of both Zane and Vivian in alternating chapters.  I enjoyed that we got a look at how both where feeling.  Vivian always has a crush on Zane so it was like her dreams where coming true.   Vivian is a very smart and intelligent woman who has goals, but just isn’t sure how to follow through.  Zane comes into her life at the right time and I feel is the kick that she needs to get going.  Zane isn’t as complicated he is more just not sure how to take the next step in a relationship.  I loved the chemistry that the author created with these two and how their relationship progressed naturally. 

The second book follows Xander on his pursuit of Quinn.  Xander has always wanted Quinn and now the opportunity has risen for him to go after her he acts.  This book is also told from the perspective of Quinn and Xander in alternating chapters.  Quinn had a lot going on from a previous bad marriage and her needing to gain back her self confidence.  I liked how the author really created Quinn to be a very complex character in this book.  Xander by far was my favorite.  He was such a gentleman at first and honestly when he spoke it was exactly what Quinn wanted to hear.  Xander was very observant and really thought through situations.   Again the chemistry between these two was not lacking!!

I could not put this book down I feel like I may have read it in one sitting without even leaving the couch, but I must have needed some water at some point.  The story flows so naturally and once the first one was over I needed to read the second part ASAP.

There isn’t anything in this book that stands out to me that I didn’t enjoy.

I would suggest this as a perfect beach read.  It was very entertaining to read and could easily keep you reading all day while working on a tan.

I received a copy of this book from Barclay Publicity to provide an honest review.  This does not affect my opinion of this book.


My Rating: 5/5

Excerpt: 
Vivian wiggled into the most romantic corner booth she could wheedle and ordered a sparkling water.  No point enjoying wine until she knew she’d enjoy the evening, too. 
   She pulled out her cellphone.  No cancellation message. 
   That was a good sign, wasn’t it? 
   Half the time, Vivian felt like her dreams were a tease.  All too often she got within kissing distance of her goal, and poof, there it went.  No big payoff, no awesome climax, nothing. 
   Because, why?  Because she always blew it. 
   She shouldn’t have told him her name. 
   She should have teased instead, said she’d tell him tonight. 
   Maybe she shouldn’t have let him in on the what she made at The Sweet Spot, either.  Sure, a lot of guys saw that as a turn on, but there were just as many who subscribed to the prude theory.  Like her brother.        
   And he was Mike’s friend. 
   Then again, so was Lenny. 
   Before she’d finished her confused sigh, Zane walked in. And all of her doubts took a backseat to the sight of how gorgeous the man was.  Vivian sat up a little straighter.  Shoulders back, chin high and chest probably jiggling because her heart was beating so fast, she smiled and sent him a little wave. 
   “Vivian,” he greeted as he joined her. 
   “Zane.”
   “So you’re Mike’s little sister, hmm?” 
   “Ahh, so the dare worked.”  Vivian laughed.  “How many times did you consider bailing?” 
   “Bailing?  I’ll have you know I’m trained to confront conflicts of all shape and size.  I fearlessly face down explosives, disarm bombs and disable volatile chemicals. Sometimes all three before breakfast.”
   “Tell me more.”  Delighted, Vivian put on a wide eyed look of fascination, even adding a little eyelash flutter for good measure. 
   “I train with the best.  I’m one of the elite.  There’s no challenge devised that I won’t face.”  He leaned in, his smile almost hypnotic as he teased.  “Baby, I never bail.”
   “I can’t tell you how glad I am to hear that,” Vivian declared as the waiter brought Zane a beer and refilled her water. 
   “But, here’s the thing—” he started to say as soon as the waiter left.
   “No,” she moaned.  “Not the thing.” 
   There was only one thing of Zane’s that she wanted to hear about. 
   “Here’s the thing,” Zane continued, laughing.  “Some guys have rules about buds dating their sisters.  Sisters, cousins, moms.  Guys get weird thinking the women in their lives have sex.  They get even weirder when they know the guy putting the moves on that sex.”
   Lips pursed, Vivian propped her elbow on the table, rested her chin on her fist and fluttered her lashes. 
   “Aren’t you taking a leap there, assuming we’d definitely be having sex?”
   Zane blinked, looked horrified for one second, then shook his head.
   “I’m speaking generally, not specifically.”  Then he narrowed his eyes.  “Are you saying that you see this thing between us as platonic?”
   “Of course not.  I plan on having a great deal of sex with you,” she purred.  “A mind-blowing amount, as a matter of fact.” 
   “Mind blowing, hmm?”
   “Indeed.”  She reached out with her free hand to trail her fingers over the back of his knee.  Up his thigh, then back down again.  Oh, baby, even through denim, his muscles were rigidly impressive. 
   He clamped his hand down, locking hers down on his thigh. 
   “Only one thing.”
   “Only one?”
   “Only one.”  Zane entwined his fingers through hers.  “Your brother.” 
“Oh, please,” she objected.  “Like you’re afraid of my brother?  The man wears argyle socks and loafers, for crying out loud.”
   Zane’s snicker escaped before he could stop it, then he shook his head.  “Mike’s footwear isn’t the issue. The fact that you’re his little sister is the issue.”
   Vivian debated for a handful of approaches. 
She could keep blathering about her brother.  That’d put an end to either of their interest in anything after a while.  Mike was like a sedative. 
She could offer him an easy out, a simple excuse to end the evening so he wasn’t in danger of violating his bro code.  Given there was a lifelong friendship involved, that’d be the nicest thing to do. 
   She could seduce Zane into forgetting about the bro code, which would ensure her one night of dreams-come-true-ecstasy.  
   Or she could do the unthinkable.
   Vivian took a deep breath, her eyes locked on Zane’s face.  He had such a sweet smile and sexy eyes.  And there were dreams at stake here, dammit. 
   So she reached into her bag to do the unthinkable. 
   “What are you doing?”
   She finished dialing her brother’s number.
   “Getting you a bro code clearance.”
   “Mike,” she said the minute he picked up.  “Let’s play what if. What if I have the hots for one of your friends?  What if this friend wants to make a move but he’s worried about upsetting you, so I want to make the move instead?  What would your feelings be on that?”
   “He’s afraid of me?” Mike laughed.  “Wish him luck.” 
   “Okey dokey,” she agreed, hanging up and giving Zane her most seductive smile. 
   Zane gave her a long look, the kind that made her want to squirm in her seat and breathe a little heavier. 
   Then he smiled. 
   “You know he thinks you’re referring to Lenny, don’t you?”
   Vivian ran her tongue over her lower lip and leaned into the table. Just enough to highlight her cleavage. She waited until Zane’s gaze returned to her eyes before giving a delicate little shrug. 
   “Can I help it if my brother is an idiot?”
