Brody Minton has loved Scarlett Harris for years. But she’s his best friend’s wife, so he’s worked hard to keep his distance. Hearing the marriage is over shouldn’t change anything. Only an ass would make a move on a friend’s ex… Except Scarlett wants help getting back in the dating game, and Brody’s torn. If he helps her out, he can keep an eye on her and guard her vulnerable heart. But having the woman he’s longed for for years in arms’ reach is hell on a man’s restraint, no matter how iron strong his will.

But loving Scarlett is only half the fight.

All Scarlett Harris wants is to get away for a while and rethink her life after filing for divorce from her lying, cheating bastard of a husband. The gorgeous Bahamas sounds like the perfect escape, except she’s booked in very resort Brody “The Iron” Minton is staying at for his sister’s wedding. Now her ex’s best friend is dogging her every move, and is a witness to her first pathetic attempts at flirting in years. If Brody isn’t going to leave her alone, then she’ll just recruit him to help get her reacquainted with her single self.

Kassiah: I really loved some of the books in this series, and I was so excited when I saw that there was going to be more. I love friends to more stories, and this one has a very interesting twist–Brody was Scarlett’s ex-husband’s best friend. So there’s the added turmoil of being with the girl you shouldn’t have ever wanted in the first place. Niles did a great job with this story–the pacing is fast and there’s plenty of swoon. There’s just so much drama, some of it totally unnecessary. I was wondering if these two would ever catch a break.

Brody was sexy and a stand-up guy, though I thought it was kind of weird that he had always had a thing for Scarlett and could actually act on it. I actually really loved Scarlett with him, though. I was also surprised that Brody didn’t know that Scarlett can’t have kids. Since he was best friends with her husband, you’d think that might have come up at some point with them. *shrugs* Scarlett was alright. She was kind of oblivious at times, but I liked her.

I loved seeing the other characters that we’ve come to love here, and I can’t wait for what’s coming next. This is definitely a series to look out for. 🙂
