Some mistakes are worth repeating…

Now, seven years later, the undercover DEA agent is back. Invading her town. Her restaurant. Her fantasies. She can't trust a man who lied to her. Yet, neither can she trust hers

My Review:
This is one of those books that was simply fun to read. It starts out with that morning after in the Bahamas where everything went from fantasy-worthy perfect to every tourists nightmare for Tasha. She never thought she'd see the drug-dealing "Diego" again, so imagine her surprise when she walked into her friends house only be introduced to their brother Luc...the man who was "Diego" and left her to rot in a Bahamian jail.

Luc was actually an undercover DEA agent and he was assured tha
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Tasha Riordan's one night stand lands her in jail…in the Bahamas…for drug trafficking. Turns out the man she knew as Diego wasn't the only hot thing in the room. After two terrifying days she is released and sent back to America vowing to never lose control like that again. Seven years later she walks into her bestfriend's kitchen to see Diego passing the potato

This is the 3rd book of the Razor Bay Series and, by far, the best. I love Susan Andersen but this series has been painful. The first two books were duds, but this one shows signs of the Susan Andersen I know and love, humor, romance and a touch of mystery - great stuff.

Tasha is a strawberry-blonde. Sometimes you get the ditzy personality of a blonde and sometimes you get the she-devil red. Tasha is definitely a she-devil red personality. Although she strives to contain that part of her personal
Susan Andersen has been a long-time favorite. The circumstances behind the romance were dark and edgy, but the book was rather light. The heroine was strong and stood up for herself, plus the details of their long-ago assignation and her subsequent arrest were dealt with very well. That isn't the kind of thing one would just get over. Tasha didn't let go of it right away, and that felt very real to me.

Luc's place with his family wasn't as secure as he'd like it, since he'd just met his two half
Rating 3.25 stars
For a long time nothing seemed to happen in the book except mundane life stuff and I just could never click with the characters. The heroine held out for pretty long and the hero's boss was weird. Overall just an average read though I would have liked reading more about the teenagers Jeremy and Peyton.

No Strings Attached (Hqn)
By Susan Andersen
August 2014

Seven years ago, while she was on vacation in the Bahamas, Tasha Riordan had a two-day marathon sex-capade with a tall, dark, and extremely gifted hunk named Diego. The day she was due to catch a plane back to the states, but Diego pleads for one more night, and she agrees. He gets a phone call from his boss and has to leave, but promises he’ll be back quickly. Minutes after he leaves their bungalow

You know what they say about the best laid plans and all that. For Tasha, the "best laid" part gets her into a whole lot of trouble. Legal trouble, romantic trouble.

Trouble that starts with "T" which rhymes with "D" which stands for Diego.

He's hot, swarthy, and oh so good in bed, a lovely interlude for her Bahamian holiday. Those hours spent with him, though, lead up to two days in jail for Tasha and Diego disappeared.

Imagine her shock, seven years later, at seeing Diego again. Only he isn't Die

It’s been a while since I read a book by Susan Anderson and “No Strings Attached” was refreshing and a nice read.

Tasha and Luc, two strangers meet in the Bahamas and end up spending time together. Unfortunately with Luc working undercover as DEA and an unfortunate twist of events lands Tasha in the Bahamian jail for a couple of days and Luc is incognito.

Fast-forward seven years and call it fate, Luc and Tasha end up seeing each other at Luc’s half brothers’ home. Seven years apart has not dimme

This is the third book in the Razor Bay series and it opens with a bang. Right from the first word the hot chemistry between Tasha and the man she knows as Diego burns up the pages, until he takes off and she ends up in jail for possessing drugs that were obviously Diego's.

Years later Tasha meets him again and is shocked to discover he is the third Bradshaw brother,Luc. The other two brothers are with her best friends so this has awkward all over it. Even when Luc explains what happened and that

This was a very intense romance with so many ups and downs. And what a great roller coaster it was. I truly loved the connection between Luc and Tasha. Maybe because the connection starts off with them as a couple (for lack of a better word) and then jumps to when they see each other again. I also really enjoy the connection of the brothers. There is just something undeniably sweet about these Bradshaw boys.

The story did get a little wordy at times and r

I absolutely loved this story between Tasha & Luc - No Strings Attached by Susan Andersen. This is the third book of her Razor Bay series & the Bradshaw half-brothers & has become my favorite. In this book we get to know more about Tasha & her past. It seems seven years prior, after a delightful couple of days on a carribbean island with Diego, who is suddenly called away, Tasha is arrested and spends two days in a hell-hole jail for a crime that she did not commit.

3.5 stars

This third in the Razor's Bay series was a disappointment. I've loved Ms Andersen's previous novels, and I own 16 of them. This one, however, does not meet her "gold standard" as found in her Marine series or the Showgirls duo.

I could not connect with the character, Tasha, and while the storyline was good, it seemed to drag in a number of places. Perhaps better editing would have helped the pace. I found I liked the interaction between two minor characters-Jeremy and Peyton- as much as
Very good second chance story with some fun moments. It starts with a hot vacation fling between Tasha and "Diego". Things are looking great when he's called away by his boss, after asking her to stay a few extra days. Right after he leaves, his room is raided by the Bahamian police and she's tossed in jail for two days on drug charges. She's convinced she was set up by a drug dealer.

Seven years later, she finds "Diego" visiting her best friend's fiance, claiming to be his half-brother Luc Brads
Paranormal Kiss
No Strings Attached by Susan Andersen is the third book in the Razor Bay series but it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel. This is the first book I’ve read by Susan Andersen and it won’t be the last. I thoroughly enjoyed it. This story focuses on Luc, an undercover DEA agent and Tasha a pizzeria owner in Razor Bay. It starts out 7 years prior when Tasha and “Diego” (Luc) have a short fling together in the Bahamas. Their passionate encounter ends abruptly and unexpectedly when Luc is swept ...more

This story is about white hot chemistry, supposed betrayal, second chances and love that can conquer all. I recommend this as one of my 'Must Reads'.

Seven years ago, Tasha is on holiday on the Andros Island in the Bahamas where she meets Diego and the chemistry between them is on the hottest side of hot, so she decides to blow caution to the wind and have a holiday fling with this man. On the day Tasha is supposed to leave for Nassau, Diego asks her to stay another night with him and she says ye

Tasha and Luc met in the Bahamas while on vacation. They had a hit and steamy fling, that ended with Tasha in jail for drug possession and Luc nowhere to be found.

Seven years later they run into each other again and she's furious with him. He's shocked with her reaction to him and doesn't u understand why she's so mad. Tasha's life seems to be going good, she owns her own business and helps mentor young teens. When she finds out that Luc is an undercover agent, she still doesn't want anything t

This is the 3rd book in The Razor Bay series by Susan Andersen. It is Tasha and Luc (Diego)'s story.
Tasha had spent one night with Luc. It was the best night of her life. The worst were when she spent the following 2 nights in a jail cell. That was seven years ago.
It has taken Tasha a long time to get over the things she endured in the Bahamian jail. It's bad enough that she can't seem to get Diego (Luc) out of her thoughts. Worse now that he suddenly is back

I finished this book in one day, and was running a fever, too, so that says something for the author's skill. Tasha treats Luc very poorly for a long time, but we learn the many-layered reasons why early on. It's cute how all the friends and family want to intervene. The bonds between the friends and family are clear, and caught my heart. I was at the dentist and kept grabbing excuses to go back to the book. Thank goodness for Novocaine taking a while to work, I got to sit upright and keep ...more

I had my concerns when the first line started "A hot, moist breeze" - moist, huh? The beginning was a little fraught with adjectives but it picked up from there. The plot was fairly standard - encounter of some sorts many years ago that went wrong with total misunderstandings on both sides and leads to mutual dislike in present. Thing is, I'm a fan of those stories so I was in.

I think in the end for me, it was just a bit too heavy handed. Too much of a point was made of our heroines good heart,
Harlequin Books
"Andersen’s latest is a sexy read. Her expert storytelling, natural dialogue and steady pacing will draw readers into the story of the charming Luc and strong-willed Tasha. Their banter is infectious, and the tension between them is heated, yet tender. Warm, genuine characters set within a well-developed plot make this story entertaining" (RT Book Reviews). 4 stars

My fav in the series
So by itself this book was fun, but kind of "meh" for me. The plot was interesting and not at all hard to get through but when I put the book down, I didn't always have the biggest urge to pick it back up again. I love second chance romances and you've gotta love a second chance that follows the hero unknowingly and inadvertently getting the heroine put in a Bahamian jail after their original encounter. Luc was a fun alpha male (as opposed to the brooding kind) and once he realized what Tasha ...more

3.5 stars.

Susan Andersen's No Strings Attached is the last of the Bradshaw brothers' romances and in this outing (which is also set in Razor Bay), half brother Luc gets the surprise of his life when he meets Tasha Riordan, the woman he spent one glorious night with seven years earlier. Equally astonishing is her animosity towards him and her inexplicable belief that he is a low-life scumbag criminal. Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Tasha clings to her mistaken belief in an ef

You know; you get a good group of friends on a hot summer day, get really large inner tubes and you tie them together and then you have those 2 smaller inner tubes (1 for drinks and 1 for eats) and then you drop yourself in to the tube and just take a few hours going down river. In some case the trip is smooth sailing all the way and on some rivers you may catch a few small drops or a fast portion of the river but in ...more

Retour dans la petite ville de Sequim avec "Un lien si fort", final de la trilogie Le défi des frères Bradshaw de Susan Andersen. Cet opus est de loin mon préféré. Car ce fut un excellent moment de détente.

Avec une plume fluide, légère et plaisante l’auteur nous offre une fin comme il se doit. Une intrigue qui est dans la continuité de la saga et qui est menée avec une grande finesse. Un ton légèrement différent des tomes précédents. Un très bon rythme où l’on n

Another Razor Bay, Washington book that focuses on Tasha Riordan, the pizzeria owner and Luc Bradshaw, half-brother to the other Bradshaw boys. Tasha and Luc first met seven years ago when she took a much sought-after vacation to the Bahamas and had what she thought was a vacation fling, only to find herself in jail for two days, accused of drug dealing after Luc deserts her.

When she encounters him again, she's furious. Not only did he lie to her (she never knew he was and undercover DEA agent),

Normally I would never give a Susan Andersen book only 3 stars...but this one really was just ok. When I pick up a Susan Andersen book, I am looking for some high-caliber, entertaining, romance writing. However, this one just didn't fly for me...pretty much from the beginning. I liked Diego/Luc but I just couldn't get on board with Tasha. I found her irritating and a little holier-than-thou. She's this huge role-model to the kids that work for her and all we read, was how wonderful and ...more

The Characters
Tasha seemed like an awesome person, she was a bit too introspective for my taste. It was bordering on annoying. Luc seemed like a great guy but even with our peak into his mind I still never felt like I knew him or really bonded with his character. The break out stars in this book were definitely Jeremy and Peyton.

The Story
This series has more than once had me ready to pack up and move to Razor Bay. If only there were more Bradshaw brothers there waiting t
