Hot sex. Action. Adventure. Drama. Romance. This story had all the makings to make for one amazingly fun read.

This is a huge blow to their relationship and Bianca's heart and the timing couldn't be worse. They're about to go undercover as a newlywed couple and Bianca isn't sure how she'll be able to stand being in the same ro

I'm on the fence about this book. Will I read book two (or three if you count the novdlla)? Yes! **spoiler alert, sorry** Don't read further if you want to go in blind like I do. Also, be aware that this contains sex, public sex, all consensual.

It is full of angst, some action, lots of sex, and friendship. I just expected something different I guess. You get sex, ex wife shows up, cold shoulder, a huge reveal, public sex, nude couples retreat, then the action starts. Bianca is taken, Taz gets a

An exciting and wickedly sexy romantic thriller!

Beauty, brains and a brazen attitude, she was everything he'd never realized he was looking for until he'd found her.

BRAZEN is an exciting and ultra sexy romance featuring the private security team which formed in the MacKenzie World novella, BULLET PROOF. Taz Hazard's and Bianca Sutherland's story is first up in this series' debut; They fell in love in BULLET PROOF, but rough waters are in store for the couple as Taz's ex-wife arrives on the scen

We first met Bianca and Taz in Bullet Proof and I was so excited for them to get a full length book. At the start of Brazen Bianca and Taz are trying to track down the missing Gidget. Outside of work their relationship is going well when suddenly Taz's ex-wife shows up. Taz had neglected to mention he was married and Bianca is understandably upset! Can he get her to forgive him? Will they be able to still work together or has his lie of omission not only compromised their personal relationship, ...more

I enjoyed meeting Bianca and Taz in Bulletproof so when I heard about Brazen, a look in on them after their initial HEA as Bianca continues her search for her missing best friend, I had to read it. While you can read Brazen as a standalone, I would recommend reading Bulletproof first so that you have the complete background. The references to Genies Wish and the search for Gidget will make much more sense.

Avery Flynn brings us the first full length B-Squad novel with Brazen and be ready for a fast paced, sexy, snarky, actioned packed hot read that will have you glued to the pages. I know I was and I may have fallen a little deeper in crush with these characters. I loved this book so hard.

Why wouldn’t I when you have the oh so delicious Taz and his hot band of merry men and the kick ass girls of St B’s Academy led by Bianca, who have joined forces with the hunk brigade to find their missing friend

The second B-Squad book begins a little bit after Bullet Proof: A MacKenzie Family Novella (MacKenzie World, #2) ends--the squad has been established, and is hard at work trying to find its last member (Gidget) and keep the drug Bianca and Taz were exposed to in the last book off the streets. Bianca and Taz are living together, and everything seems to be going along swimmingly until Bianca is blindsided by the ex (or is she?) wife she didn't know Taz even had. How well does she really know h ...more

Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard were a match made in heaven. They loved hard and were not afraid to put everything on the line when it comes to saving those that need their help. Sooo story over right?...WRONG!

Taz's wife shows up claiming that due to a technicality she is still married to Taz. Although this should be easily figured out Bianca can't help but be shocked because she didn't even know that he was married in the first place!

Can Taz convince Bianca that he is 100% head
At the end of Bullet Proof, we left Bianca and Taz hot on Gidget’s trail, Bianca desperate to do anything to save her childhood friend, Taz committed to protect the woman he has fallen in love with. Their relationship is moving full steam ahead, most of the old B-Squad is back together, and Gidget’s whereabouts are in their sights, until a visit from Taz’s past threatens their newfound happiness.

I liked Taz he knew how to handle his woman, “I didn’t hear you complaining last night.” He glided his hand back down to her ***. “Or this morning.” He dipped his head down so his lips practically brushed her sensitive earlobe. “Or in the parking garage before we made it inside.” I liked this book, I can't wait for the next one in this series.

Brazen by Avery Flynn is a very good book. I have never read any of her books and was impressed with it and look forward to reading more. At Christmas Avery Flynn gave away free books in her news letter. I downloaded Brazen thanks to Insta Freebie. Brazen keeps you turning the page. I recommend this book.

Decent plot, POV had me back and forth.

I’m torn on the rating for the book. The plot was a little slow and confusing, but picked up about the middle of the book. I am glad I didn’t stop like I wanted to about 25% in.

The POV is 3rd person and both bounces back and forth between Taz and Bianca. There was even a few from other characters. It took me a bit to get into it and for the plot to pull me under. I think I would have enjoyed it more in the 1st person.

I am curious to see what book 2 holds

This is the first book by Avery Flynn that I have read. And now it will be one of many. In this action packed suspense romance is hot. It was a fast read that had lots of bedroom heat, though not all was in the bedroom. This was a mission to free a long time friend from kidnappers. Add damaging drugs and past villains you have the beginning of a new series.

Stayed on edge.

I loved this book. Taz and Bianca are great together but she’s in for a shock as Tamara shows up. Is she Taz’s wife or ex wife? Also, can they find her friend? Who is targeting her and her friends? Just how bad is the drug “ Genie’s Wish”? Loved staying on edge. Thankfully there’s a happy ever after. I highly recommend this book.

"Brazen" by Avery Flynn

My Thoughts....

I loved B Squad #1 series...'Brazen' that definitely is 'bold and pacts quite a punch.' It is definitely one of those read that once you start reading you will not want to put it down until the very end. For this read is full of a little bit of it all from being a not only a heart pounding ride, fast paced read, lots of fun banter, insults, revenge p

Brazen is the first novel in the B-Squad series by Avery Flynn and closely follows the events in Bullet Proof, the spin-off novella launched from Liliana Hart’s MacKenzie series.

This was a fast-paced read with a few twists and turns that had me reading this story in one sitting. I just love stories with a strong heroine, and Avery Flynn gives us not just one, but a whole B-Squad full of strong heroines which makes me one happy reader!

I really love how Bianca and all the women of the B-Squad can hold their own. They are a strong group of very diverse women who have each other’s back and complement each other with their skill sets. Their shared history has forged

Private Security organizations seem to be the darling of the literary world these days. They give the author an opportunity to explore all the drama and excitement of a police or military special ops story with only a fraction of the limitations imposed by organizational rules and regulations. Brazen is one of those stories.

Readers were first introduced to Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard in Bullet Proof, which is part of the MacKenzie Family Novella series. In Brazen, the action picks up where I’m presuming Bullet Proof ended. The best part is if you haven’t read Bullet Proof you can still follow along.

Bianca and her girlfriends who make up the B-Squad are on the hunt for a drug kingpin who has kidnapped one of their best friends. Gidget’s kidnapping also ties into the DEA’s search for a powerful hallucinogen kno

Bianca is trying to save her friend. She and the B-Squad are doing what they can to find Gidget. The added bonus of some man candy doesn't hurt either. Her boyfriend and his former military friends make this team even hotter.

Trying to take down crazy drug dealers and save her friend will cost her more patience then Bianca ever thought, seeing as her boyfriend's wife nuts walked through the door. Yup, boyfriend's wife. That's what I said!
