I really enjoyed reading Brave Girl (Girls #2). I have been invested in the series since reading Nice Girl (Girls #1) where I was introduced to the group of four best friends since high school and their adventure after college on their own.

Each book in the series involves a different girl and her new life, involving a hot guy of course! The girls communicate using Skype weekly and you are able to get to know all the girls and their personality

Kate Baum continues her Girl Series with Brave Girl. Brave Girl Ariyankbegins on the same plot line as Nice Girl with Eve's childhood best friends in her bedroom reading from a steamy romance novel and discussing sex. So here is where we see the quartet, mostly Dee, come up with the concept of the 'orgasm pact'. The goal is to find an older man, not too old because that's just skeevy, around 30, to their 22 years who can give them the orgasm that none of them have had. Eve and Grace tacitly a

So this book was way too long. 3/4 of it focused on Eve and the friendship with her room mates and best friends. 1/4 of it focused on Eve's relationship with Lou. I would've loved to get to know more about Lou. I couldn't figure out why he liked Eve, besides the fact that she had red hair and was not Native American. I skimmed most of it because there's only so much blabbering and giggling I can take. This was almost a dnf for me but I always try to read the entire book so I can give a fair review. ...more

What a great book! I was really excited to read this one.
My dad was a huge lover of the Native American things, and I grew up going from store to store buying him anything and everything that I thought he'd love.

But this book has so much more to it then just the Indian History and romance -

The book starts off like Nice Girl did - the 4 girls getting ready to go off on their own ways - they had their Orgasm pack that Dee suggested once they found out none of the 4 girls has ever experienced on

Brave Girl is the second Book in the Girls Series. The Girl series started with Nice Girl.

This is the story of 4 best friends Grace( who was in Nice Girl) Janie, Eve, & Dee who have grown up together, They went off to college going there separate ways but always maintained contact through Skype at least once a week. They spent their summers together working in the same area in their home towns. This was their last summer together bef

Brave Girl is the second installment of the Girl Series by Kate Baum. I really enjoyed the first in the series, Nice Girl, but I adored and devoured Brave Girl! This is Eve’s story….and what a story it was.

Eve O’Malley has been accepted into a graduate program that placed her teaching on an American Indian Reservation. As much as Eve

Brave Girl is the 2nd book in the amazing Girl Series by Kate Baum. I absolutely love this series and could gush about it for hours! This story has so much substance and “real” life. Ms. Baum has a gift for throwing together romance, an uber sexy hero, a strong capable heroine, witty banter, great sub characters, hot sex and turning it into a story that you can’t get enough of. You get it all, with no fluff and wasted content.

The series is about 4 friends all heading out on their own to find th

This book is the second in the Girl Series for author Kate Baum. I had not read the first book, but this second installment was good as a stand-alone.

The story revolves around Eve, who has left her three best friends from high school/college, to take a post-grad internship at an Indian reservation. She quickly becomes friends with her new roommates who will also be teaching at the reservation.

So one day at school she overhears some men saying rude things to her friends an

I am loving this series! This book starts out similarly to Nice Girl as the four best friends are hanging out before they go their separate ways after the summer. Eve is the brave one. She doesn’t let on when she gets scared or show fear a-in any way. She is also outspoken with her opinions. She is very protective of others, especially her friends, but also anyone she feels is being picked on. She can’t stand bullies and won’t back down from them even if they are large men.

3.5 stars. This book wasn't quite what I was expecting and for most of the book the romance between Eve and Lou takes a backseat and the focus is exclusively on Eve's relationship with her roommates, her childhood friends and her job. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I wanted a romance and the protagonists spent most of the book apart with little progression of their relationship. At 50% I think Eve and Lou had spoken just a handful of words to each other. This was such a disappointment f ...more

I read Nice Girl, so I could not wait to see what happens with Eve since she has been mentioned a few time in some very interesting contexts. I kind of had a hard time getting into this one. I felt like there was too much time spent on the background story of her parents. But once the story got going I was entranced. I loved how Eve was a strong advocate for everyone but herself. Lou's constant pursuit despite her always pushing him away was portrayed in such a way that I didn't feel like he was ...more

Not a fast read but totally worth the time

The first few chapters were quite slow. I have not read the first book in the girl series and was unsure if brave girl could stand on it's own...Then comes the introduction of Lou and I'm hooked.
In the end Brave Girl delivered.
It was nice to finally get my hands on a NA romance that was not historical but modern. If that is what you are looking for; Brave Girl is your book.

Taaaan largo, taaaan lento... Me decepcionó muchísimo. La trama está bien pero Eve es un personaje demasiado contradictorio que me gustó mucho al principio y que terminé prácticamente odiando. Y Lou no salva la novela, lamentablemente. Tiene fuerza pero no la suficiente como para llevar las cosas a su ritmo. Nada que ver con "Nice girl". Leeré la segunda parte de esta última pero no sé si sigo la serie :(

I really loving this series. Lou is great. Strong, sexy and patient with Eve.

I would love a novella (or 2) with the other women at the reservation. (Lauren Julia and Cora).

It would be great to see if there is something with Lauren and Cash.

Loved it! The story for these girls is so easy for you to relate to, minus the sexy men of course, because lets face it.. they don't make them like we can write them! I CAN'T wait for the rest of the series to come out!!

I have always been a voracious reader. My favorite genres were tailored to YA type of horror, fantasy and science fiction. I guess it fit being that I am a middle school librarian. I have a young adult series in mind that I always told myself I would one day write. Then, at the young age of 46, I picked up an erotic romance book. I only read it out of curiosity. It was a best seller and ALL the te ...more
