It had been ingrained in him from year zero that Olivia Elizabeth Kane was so out of his league he’d need a seat on one of those private space rocket deals to reach her stratosphere.

For those of you who enjoy the Brazen Entangled series and love the ”romance with the older brother’s best-friend” trope, this one should hit the spot. I never read the first two books in the series and figured I could read this as a standalone, but I felt like

Olivia Kane’s muddling through the worst day of her life, and publicly no less.

Prettier Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books

This is one of those books that is low in the angst department and has a high fun factor. I finished it with a smile on my face. It's a frenemy to lovers/best friend's sister story with all kinds of attitude, sass and cockiness.

Olivia's wedding didn't happen. The American Texas Princess was supposed to marry a congressman but now-ex-friend and maid of honor couldn't resist the temptation to tap the groom-to-be on their wedding day. S

5 - "My eyes can barely process the full range of awesome." Stars!

Kate Meader has excelled herself with the final book in the Tall, Dark and Texan series, although to be honest I think this is probably the best complete Brazen series I have read in a long while.

Everything about Olivia and Flynn’s story just clicked for me, plenty of banter, a few giggles, lots of sexy-times, and some incredibly sweet and heart felt moments for this pair as they work towards their happily ever after.

I have a soft spot for brother's best friend stories that just won't quit. This story was a great addition to my collection. Olivia and Flynn shared a developing connection that Flynn severed abruptly after a tour in Afghanistan. Olivia moves on and is set to marry when her fiancé gets caught with Flynn's date right before the wedding. As she tries to recover from heartbreak, she decides to take more risks and have a fling. Flynn is alright with that decision as long as the fling is with him. He ...more

She is one of those authors who deserves the spotlight as she continues to deliver a sizzling, erotic and emotional love story that will have you swooning for Flynn. I am not talking about Flynn Rider but I’m talking about the tall, dark, and Texan, Flynn Cross.

Kate Meader has consistently hit the spot with her Tall, Dark and Texan series and One Week to Score doesn't disappoint.


Flynn and Olivia featured fairly prominently in Brody and Emma's story and, with it clear that there was some history, along with Olivia's pending nuptials and Flynn's relationship ending, I couldn't wait to dive in and see how things would play out for this couple.

I love a “fallen for my brother’s best friend” story but this one has a twist it’s a friends to enemies to lovers for Liv and Flynn.

Liv is escaping her life after her wedding day goes to hell so she goes on her honeymoon to Mexico planning to have a holiday fling with a stranger lots of sex to forget.

Flynn Cross has no intentions of letting Livvie follow through on her plan and invites himself on her honeymoon with an offer she can’t refuse he will be her sex slave in Mexico.

One Week to Score is a short, sexy read that manage to push the right hotness button for me. I enjoyed their hate/lust relationship and their week-long fling at paradise.

Olivia Kane is the high society girl, always wanted to do right thing for her parents.
Flynn Cross is the white trash who can never measure up to the Kane's family, no matter how close his friendship is with the family.

They have been avoiding their attraction for years due Flynn's friendship with Olivia's brother and af

I loved One Week to Score!
This was such a fun and entertaining read.
Loved the storyline, it was well written with wonderful characters that are likable, relatable and will bring out all the feels.

The Tall, Dark, and Texan series has been a great read, each book can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend them all :)

But Flynn wasn’t a good guy. Not then, not now.
He was envy.
He was greed.
He was a man who’d stopped at nothing to have this woman, even if meant hurting her deeply.

What Olivia Kane needs now after her wedding day so spectacularly crashed and burned, was to get drunk and have anonymous sex with a sexy stranger who could make her forget about finding her fiancé with his dick in her maid of honor. What she sure as hell does not need is her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seve

This is my first book to author Kate Meader. I have some books of her on my TBR shelf but never got the chance to read any. A situation I'm going to rectify as soon as possible.

One Week to Score, the final book in the Tall, Dark, and Texan series gave me a chance to check off a few items on my romance writer's bucket list. I'd never done a best friend's sister story before, partly because I'd always worried that this conflict, while a delicious way to kick start a plot, can wander into predictability. After a little sneaking around and oh no, big bro can never find out about all our illicit sexytimes, readers might start to say, so what? fess up and take your punishmen ...more

Ooh, there’s not much better than a “best friend’s little sister” taboo romance!

Olivia Kane’s day has sucked. Drowning her sorrows in the hotel bar, Flynn Cross isn’t about to let Olivia get away from him again. He’s not about to let Olivia have a one-night stand with a perfect stranger. No way. No how. If she’s going to make a mistake like that, she’s going to make it with him.

And, holy moly, do the sparks fly from there! I loved how Olivia tried to put up a fight and not let her heart be cap

I liked this. I like stories where the characters aren't perfect, where they have flaws and make decisions that maybe aren't the best, but for the right reasons.

Flynn was flawed. Olivia wasn't perfect either. But they are perfect for one another. And, this isn't news to either of them, and you find out that both have been attracted to one another prett

I love Kate Meader! I have read several of her books and when I saw this one, I knew I had to review it!

This book offers a favorite theme of mine, a delicious forbidden brothers best friend romance. Flynn is so yummy and he has been in love with Liv for years. She has had feelings for him too, but is mad because he broke off contact with her so many years ago. But when her wedding derails, Flynn finds the perfect opportunity to escape with her to satisfy his cravings and temper her own.

I got to say as far as the books I have read, there are very few others that write angst as well as this author had written in the book. The story was enjoyable and relationship believable but somehow it just didn't reach 4 star standard. Enjoyable romance read nonetheless.

I finished this book and I wanted to go back and re-read it immediately. I wanted to go back in and be in the moment with these two people who have loved each other for so long, but life kept them apart find what they've both wanted. I wanted to bask in the glow of the love that shined off of them. I didn't want this book to end.

Catherine (The Sassy Bookster)
Kate Meader really should write a book on the art of the quip, I'm sure it would be a bestseller because she knows how to layer her characters' dialogues with lots of one liners and ONE WEEK TO SCORE serves up some of that fun alongside lots of scorching hot sexy moments and characters anyone would love to spend time with. Ms. Meader combines two of my favorite things to read about - friends-to-lovers and brother's best friend - into a really great read.

Olivia and Flynn have history :) (i love me some history trope lol) ALL kinds of history ~ from friendship to sexy to everything in between (you wanna know the in between, don't ya? ... read and find out cuz, FUN lol)

So Olivia is pretty much having the worst day in the history of worst days and Flynn is right there, front row viewing, to the catastrophe that is her life and he takes FULL advantage :)

“A strong but gentle grip on her nape had pulled her back to make the acquaintance of a warm slab of granite. Callused fingers held her neck while a blunt hand fanned her hip, locking her into position against something hard and hot.

It could have been anyone, but after just one afternoon of Flynn-spun intimacy, her body knew its owner.”
