4 Bad Boy meets Good Girl with a bad side Stars

It turns out that the girl next door sometimes grows up to be the woman who makes you fall in love with her, whether or not you're ready.


I love Cari Quinn's writing, and she never fails to deliver some of the sexiest bad boys I've had the pleasure of reading. When you have a football star with a penchant for dirty talk and a little kink thrown in?

Nothing I like more than good girl lusting after her best friend's older brother trope. It's pretty

4 - "Pussy got your tongue?" Stars!

Cari Quinn has done it again, the Love Required series just goes from strength to strength. Jill and Bryan have featured here and there in previous books, so it is great to finally get to read their story, and it didn’t disappoint.

No wine. No women. No thongs.

Bryan’s life is currently on something of a hiatus, having been injured whilst playing, he is back in Haven for a few weeks, mainly for his sister’s wedding. Jill has always been around what with being his

Two of my favorite books are No Flowers Required and No Romance Required, so I was really excited to read the newest book by Cari Quinn.

In No Promises Required, we meet Bryan, a professional football player who's recovering from an injury and visiting home for a few weeks for his sister's wedding. Jill, who's the best friend of Bryan's sister, has harbored a serious crush on Bryan since they were kids.

Thinking the tabloids and rumors about Bryan being a player are true, Jill decides

This is definitely a case of “It’s not you….it’s me”. This book would be “friend-zoned” it’s like meeting a nice guy, your sexually compatible, you listen to the same music & watch the same movies, your friends overlap…..BUT it’s just off. He’s a nice guy….just not for you. That was me & this book.

I felt like the author was toying with me for most of the book, there was some pretty steaming sex scenes & a male POV (which I adore) BUT Bryan (main character) kept alluding to the fact

Cari Quinn's Love Required series is a favourite and one that just gets better and better. She never fails to bring us characters to love, perfect humour and page-burning action. No Promises Required doesn't disappoint and Bryan Townsend and Jill St. John are another sexy surprising couple.

"..he didn’t have girlfriends. Never had, and he still didn’t. He took lovers."

"She’d never had an actual boyfriend that lasted more than a month...God knew she had no experience with lovers."

Let me start by saying I love this author and this book was undoubtedly one of my fave reads.... Best book in this series as far as I am concerned.

Bryan is a football player. In fact he is a quarterback. He loves his job and even though he is recovering from a knee injury he is hell bent and determined to get back onto the field. He is currently waiting to see if his team is going to take him back and renew his contract or whether he is going to become a free

I’ve never read a Cari Quinn book before, even though I’ve had the first three books from this Love Required series in my TBR for quite some time already. I’m definitely glad that this book can be read as a standalone, that way it won’t ruin my fun when I find the time to read the others.

No Promises Required is basically an off limits kind of romance, featuring a notorious football player and the virgin best friend of the little

This is a passionate football romance filled with drama and lots of sizzle. The story is about Bryan Townsend, a professional football player, who plays for the Mariners and is trying to clean up his bad boy image. For years Bryan’s life has consisted of three things football, drinking and women. Now, he’s paying the price for his self indulgent lifestyle and worries about his future in football. On the outside Bryan is a confident and cocky guy, but inside he’s hurting and afraid to share his c ...more

No Promises Required - the 4th installment of Love Required and they keep getting hotter!. Cari Quinn is not only a phenomenal author, but she is also a wizard of words.

“Between the, everything felt like an act of communion.” Is currently on my favorite she’s written so far. And knowing her, there will be more to add to my list.

Cari Quinn just never disappoints! I love her writing, I love this series and I loved Jill and Bryan's story.
It was hot, it was romantic, the characters had depth to pair with their kink and the role-play thrown in was just icing on the cake! I've said it once (hmmm more like countless times...) and I'll say it again: Cari Quinn's sex scenes are red-hot and awesome and Bryan's dirty talk ranks right up there with all my favorite (mainly Tessa Bailey's) dirty-talking heroes.

In addition to this one being my new favorite, I'm pretty sure Bryan has taken the seat as favorite Cari Quinn hero as well. What a hunk! I loved seeing some of the other characters from the series as well, as they all have been fantastic.

All Bryan Townsend wants is to attend his sister's wedding and let his knee heal so he can get back into the game. Easy, right? Well, he forgot to add Jill and her and her plan to rid herself of her virginity the equation. .

You'll laugh at the fun parts, go "awww" over the kittens and squirm a little--okay a lot at the love scenes which are smoking hot. Great contribution in the latest installment of "Love Required" series!

I have to start with saying I’m a huge fan of this author and have been for a long time. I think it might just be my favourite book from Cari Quinn and especially from the Love Required novels.

I adored Bryan and Jill. They were the perfect combination and had me laughing, awing, getting hot and bothered and falling for them both. From the moment they literally ran into each other to the big grand gesture at the end of the book, I loved every minute. Plus that epilogue, wow. All the feels J

This is the next book in the Love Required series. It's the first I have read and it was enjoyable reading it as a stand alone.

Bryan Townsend was a hometown high school football star who couldn't wait to get away. His younger sister Victoria (Vic) and her best friend Jill St. John were always together and Jill worshipped Bryan from afar. He was five years older and unattainable. Once, he was able to steal a kiss from Jill. Her first kiss and very memorable. Not long after he was gone to play wit

This steamy romance is the story of Bryan and Jill. Jill is Bryan's sister's best friend and when he returns home for his sister's wedding nursing a football injury, it's Jill's chance to show Bryan that she's all grown up.

I always enjoy stories featuring sibling's best friends and this one definitely kept me interested from the first page. Bryan is well portrayed as a strong dominant man on the outside but nursing an injury that may sideline his career. His insecurities for his future and his

Cari Quinn is one of my auto-buy authors who always delivers a well-written, SMOKIN HOT read that leaves you both satisfied yet yearning for more.

Jill and Bryan’s story is fourth in the Love Required series. Jill may be young and still a virgin, but that feisty girl knows exactly what she wants and goes after it. What she wants is Bryan and every little naughty thing that sexy alpha can teach her. Have mercy, does he ever! Over and over and over…

Cute read but not the most thrilling or memorable. Heroine decides to entice the hero into sleeping with her so she can be rid of her pesky virginity, Hero obliges, along the way they decide they want to be together. Throw in a few obstacles to their HEA and that is the basic overview.

I didn't really understand the opening scene. (view spoiler)

What he didn't expect was that good girl Jill St. John would try and seduce him. He's reluctant since she's his sister's best friend. Jill has desired Bryan for years. Now she's going to make him feel the same? Jill is such a feisty woman. She's not afraid to go after what she wants or afraid to trust. Bryan is caught like ...more
