She liked it hard and fast. Trouble was, so did he. And when two people liked it wild, things got out of control.

What an awesomely pleasant surprise this book turned out to be. I was a tad hesitant going into this book as the last one I read by this author I DNF'd

Oops? But that book was a case of 'not for me', and I'm so glad I gave this author another shot since I am absolutely eating my words right now. I really enjoyed the hell out of this book. Kathy Lyons wrote a sexy and ente

Two Week Seduction; certainly seduced me and it definitely didn’t take two weeks to do it! I cannot recommend this book highly enough; it had the right amounts of dirty, sexy and romance in it, and kept me entertained right up to its adorable ending.

I love the brothers best friend trope, and I think this is probably one of the best books I have read in a while that covers this theme. Alea comes from a wealthy background; John’s background is

I really liked this story of childhood love for her big brothers best friend.

Alea Heling was raised in a comfortable setting, yet expectations were high. Most of her memories included John O’Donnell. The madness of their youth spanned their school years, and consisted of her hanging out with him and her brother. She’d always been a bit of a provocative dresser, but one night she was frogmarched home by J

Two Week Seduction is about an attraction that has been on hold for 10 years. John took off for the Air Force along with Sam, his best friend, who also happens to be Alea’s older protective brother. Before John and Sam joined the Air Force, Sam noticed John’s and Alea’s attraction. He had warned John to stay away from Alea, who at that time

Combine a sassy kick-ass lady who is naughty but nice with a delectable Air Force Sergeant who has a heart of gold, a slightly dirty way with words and an insecure streak that makes you want to just cuddle him (amongst many other things), and Two Week Seduction is a fabulous addition to the Brazen family.

Alea Heling may be the sensible teacher on the outside, but the woman is as fiery as the red streak in her hair, preferring leather & lace to the twin-set & pearls. And for 10 years she

John is home on a 2 week stateside visit to help his mother get things organised after his father passed away. He is a Tech Sergeant for the US Air force and he loves his job. He hates the fact that he is home because it is a constant reminder to him of how he used to live and where his place is in life. Especially when he is around Sam his best friend and his sister Alea.

This was a very hot and steamy read.
Alea has been in love with John since she was 16, and now is her chance to seduce him. He is home on a 2 week leave from the Air Force. John has always had the hots for Alea, but he feels he is all wrong for her. She comes from a rich family and his is poor, plus her brother (his best friend) had warned him off when they were teens.
Alea keeps putting herself in his view whenever they are in the same place. She just wants him to notice her. But he keeps brushi

This was a sweet, second chance love story. He's a military man and a dirty talker. Personally I prefer stories where the man is doing the chasing and in this it's the woman chasing him, so I didn't love it but it was a quick, hot and easy read.

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Two Week Seduction by Kathy Lyons got my attention first with its sexy cover and then with its blurb. This is a little sister and brother's best friend story which happens to be my favorite trope, so of course I had to read it. Throw in a sexy man in uniform and I couldn't resist. This story had its cute and sexy moments, but it also had some really cheesy and corny ones as well. It was a quick and easy read, but I had some issues with it.

Two Week Seduction:

Sooo, I liked the cutesiness of this book. It made me feel all girly inside. And I said “aww” a couple of times.

So in this book we meet Alea (love her) she’s vulnerable when it comes to the man she loves, yet strong enough to handle the people around her, all while still trying to make her family happy. While making her family happy, she kind of loses herself in the process. She’

This was an EXTREMELY good book/novella. It's advertised as a book, but it felt short enough to be a novella. It's less than 200 pages. Either way, it was fantastic. Alea and John are such wonderful characters. I cared about both of them immediately and couldn't help but want good things for them!

Alea, fighting to get from under the family tradition of law school, is a great character. She is fun, sassy

Two Week Seduction by Kathy Lyons was a fun and light read. This is what I would call beachside reading. It’s the perfect book to escape to by the beach. The story is light and fun and so are the characters. I was really interested in this book because of the plot. Alea Heling and Tech Sergeant John O’Donnell seemed to have unfinished business between them and I wanted to find out how they resolved their issues.

Who doesn’t love a story about two people from different sides of town with a twist. Growing up Alea had a crush on her brother’s best friend, John. But no matter what she did, he wouldn’t notice her. She even wore a short skirt and thigh high boots and he told her to go home, like what the heck is wrong with this guy? But what Alea doesn’t know is that John can’t have her (you’ll find out why if you read the book!)

Two Week Seduction by Kathy Lyons aka Jade Lee is a great sexy and seductive romance. This story seduces you into the lives of two people who are at a crossroads in their lives and how they come to terms with what they want and what family wants.

What would you do if you came home to help your mother for two weeks and found temptation in the form of your best friends little sister who is now all grown up and has you drooling over her and making decisions you never thought you would need or want to make ? This is Tech Sergeant John O’Donnell’s dilemma and was so much fun to read.

Alea was a perfect foil to John. Even if she was his best friends sister and has had a crush on him forever. She’s all grown up now and knows exactly what she wan

Two Week Seduction by Kathy Lyons

On a two week leave from the Air Force, John comes face to face with the one thing he can never have, his best friend's little sister.

All Alea has ever wanted was John, and when he comes home for leave, she gets her chance to seduce him once and for all.

The story picks up right before John's welcome home party and things quickly take off between Alea and John by the end of the night. John and Alea find a connection in their need to live up to their family and the

I received a copy of this book from the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.

The author will suck you in so that everything else will just disappear - so be careful whom you sit next to. It’s a great book to escape with when the stress of the day is really getting to you. If you’ve never read Kathy’s work before, this book may leave you craving more. Besides being a great hot and sexy romance, it’s a book that reminds the

She works as a high school math teacher, while applying to law schools. John comes from a humble family, without money to spare. He works in the Air Force as a security specialist, he is deciding whether or not to re-enlist.

Kathy Lyons has ratcheted up the heat level in her latest Brazen offering to boiling portions, and the results are too hot to miss
The chemistry between John and Alea is what the phrase "hot for teacher" is made for. There is also a wonderful emotional component in John's having to come to terms with the loss of his mother and the ghosts of childhood insecurities.
Alea is a very likable and strong character. The best part of this read is watching her defeat her lover's defenses and find her way in

This started as a 4.5-5 Star book for me then went down to a 3.5 Stars.

They were both way to indecisive for me. John was all low self esteem and sort of mean to Alea. She was like ok just crap on me cause your insecure I'll get past it. Ignore me and ow me off for days at a time I understand. Ummmmm weird! I get his side because we read John's POV but without his POV he just seems likes a jerk. Then when they are together you absolutely love him. It was very weird for me. He loved her whe

I liked Alea! She was a little bit spice and a lot nice. What more can you ask for a school teacher with a naughty side! This story pulled me into its little web of romance, as I've said with other reviews I'm a sucker for unrequited teenage love stories turned adults love stories. I understood where both Alea and John were coming from throughout the story and I was able to feel for them throughout and that
