Deny Me

4.11  ·  Rating details ·  620 Ratings  ·  84 Reviews
Jameson King.

My best friend’s brother and the person who could make an Olympic sport of ignoring my relentless teasing and taunting.

I was a live-in-the-moment girl flirting with a man who always looked to the future. He was traditional, carrying the weight of his whole family on his broad shoulders, and I had been taught to never fall in love, focusing on my career instead

Deny Me was a fun and sexy as heck story with fabulous characters. Jameson was definitely my favorite. He wooed me from the moment I laid eyes on him. He's a strong man who loves his sister Luella with all his heart. Evelyn and Luella are best friends and Evelyn has a wonderful and teasing friendship with Jameson. He's interested in a serious relationship whereas Evelyn is not. So they tease each other as much they can and it definitely has sexual undertones. Yummy.
Damn damn damn. Their chemistr

The book is so f*cked-up, but I liked it . The heroine is a mess, but I liked her! I'm blown away...
I picked it up because of the bad reviews, yeah, a bit strange, but I needed a strong woman. After reading a lot of books with angelic-looking forgiving virginal heroines,  I needed a badass b*tch. And I got her. *hurrah*
I loved and hated the book. I wanted to quit at least 4 times, I wanted to throw my  e-reader against the wall, but it kinda expensive and I'm kinda obsessed with my baby... *lol

Don’t you just love it when you go into a specific read where you’re totally ready because you THINK you know everything you’re going to get out of it and it happens to be SO MUCH MORE than you were expecting?

Yeah that’s this read. And I wasn’t ready. I’m STILL reeling over how connected I felt to these characters.

This is the kind of HOT AS SIN light hearted read that stirs something way deep down inside you. The connection these characters have between one another coupled with how well they can

I officially take possession of Jameson King.

Evie is a free spirit and never without a man in her bed, but the one that she really wants scares the hell out of her. Jameson made my heart skip a beat in every scene he's in, the seemingly untouchable rock that always had his eye on one untamed woman. The sexual tension between him and Evie will leave you panting. As free as Evie claims to be, she's scared. She frustrates you, but you understand her at the same time. And the way Jameson fights for

A little birdie told me...
I liked this... I really did. However, it pissed me off at the same time.

What I liked (after the initial few chapters where the two MCs weird relationship of sexual teasing seemed so stupid, making me dislike both of them. Seriously, I understand why so many reviewers stopped reading so early on in the book.) was the friends-to-lovers relationship they developed slowly. The heat? Off the charts. Dirty-talking Jameson was definitely a favorite of mine.

In relationships we make mistakes...

Evie was raised by a mom who was devastated when her husband died a few years into marriage; she became angry and taught Evie never to love, never to have /depend on relationships. Evie used this as her guide through life and used men. She had a flirty relationship with her bff brother, Jameson, but never did anything until they went to Jamaica for said bff wedding. The push and pull was fantastic...then the mom got involved and things went off the rails. Evie

I quit this book right after their trip to Jamaica. I never liked the female lead. She was abrasive and vain. Her thinking was so illogical. I honestly have no idea why the male lead liked her at all. I choose not to spend time with people like that in reality, so why would I want them in my head?

Hot, hot, hot 🔥🔥🔥

I’m actually annoyed with myself that it’s taken me this long to catch up with the last two of Fiona Cole’s books that I hadn’t read - because she is absolutely fabulous and her books are incredibly hot and steamy with story lines that will grab you from the first page and don’t let go!! And what’s even funnier is that I am reading this loose series - the main characters from each book all know each other and/or are related - in reverse order. I read Imagine Me - Juliana and Sh
Loved it!!!

Book had a great flow from beginning to end. Kept my attention, which is hard to do. Love the history between the main characters and how it added to the relationship...would highly recommend it ❤

Jameson King is definitely the ultimate book boyfriend!!

Evelyn Valero is a very independent woman. She was raised to believe that nothing should come between her and her career. She is happy with one night stands. She has no use for a relationship outside of her mother and her "family".
Her "family" is her best friend Luella, her husband Jack, and Lu's brother Jameson. You first meet Lu in Where You Can Find Me. I would definitely read it too although this is a standalone.

Evie and Jameson have

I gave this book 4.5 Stars!

This book was messed up in way but a good way. Evelyn is so messed up with her views on love and she feels she doesn't need a man but for one thing. She has always flirted and tried to seduced her best friend brother. She would love just to have him for one night but after a heated moment in a store room closet and never getting the whole package she is determine to keep at it until he gives in.

Fiona Cole is such an amazing author and totally hit it out of the park with her debut novel Where you can find me. This new novel was no different. She can make a story jump off the page and come alive as you read.

Let me start by saying that Jameson is swoon worthy. The first scenes of him and Evelyn together in the bar set the stage for the heat they share. This is a best friends brother story that does not disappoint.

The typical roles of men wanting only 1 night stands are completely reverse

One of my favorite books to read is best friends brother, so when I heard about this book I had to read it. This is my first book by this author and I wasn't disappointed at all. She had me hooked from the beginning until the end. I couldn't put it down, I had to keep reading, I needed more and more of these characters. When I did finish I didn't want it to be over. This author had me so hooked that I kept trying to swipe for a new page even though I knew that was the end.
I laughed through this

Moreeeeee! I need more! The ending was too short. It's was like a tease bam, happily ever after. Still a excellent story about friends to lovers. Jameson and Evelyn are the perfect match even when they don't realize it, it is plan to see to everyone. Their playful banner makes this an interesting novel that isn't the least bit boring on any chapter. His sister Lu gets in on the picking on him and makes it even more hilarious. It's easy to relate to when Evelyn gets scared about how close they ar ...more

I absolutely loved Jameson and Evelyn's story! They obviously were attracted to each other and I loved their banter back and forth. You knew they would eventually get together, and when they! They were on fire when they hooked up!! And I wasn't surprised how quickly they fell into a relationship. They had known each other for years, so they had already gotten past the get to know you stage. They truly were perfect for one another....and I can't wait to see them again in Shane & J ...more

This is a sweet romance about a girl & her brothers best friend. It's truly a sweet & funny read.
Evelyn's character was a feisty sex deviant who knew how to flirt with men. Evelyn spent ten years teasing and taunting Jameson with her sex appeal. She was taught to never fall in love that women don't need love. Evelyn focused on her career instead. Evelyn was an independent career driven woman who could have any man she wanted at anytime. Of course, those men were disposable. Evelyn needed a bold and aggressive man to gain her attention. Evelyn's character was interested in a fun and carefree ...more

After reading a couple of Fiona Cole books and being completely blown away with her writing and the way she bleeds emotion onto the page, I wanted to go back and read the books I haven’t yet. Enter Deny Me, it’s more lighthearted than the other books I’ve read from Fiona, and that isn’t a bad thing. I love a good friends to lovers/ best friends brother story and this hit all the right spots for me. It is charming and funny and at times emotional. Although, not overly so, thank goodness.

Earlier in the year I was offered the opportunity to read and review Shame Me Not by Fiona Cole. She was a new to me author, and I feel absolutely in love with her writing and story telling abilities. I knew that she was an author going places, and I wanted to be a part of it. When I found out that she was releasing a new book called Imagine Me that was interconnected with her previous release Deny Me, I jumped at the chance to read and review them both!

Deny Me is told from Evie’s point of view.

3-3.5 stars. Evelyn (Evie) and Jameson were first introduced in Where You Can Find Me as Luella's best friend and older brother. They've been dancing around their attraction for years because Evelyn doesn't do relationships and Jameson only wants commitment. Instead, Evelyn loves to bait Jameson and goad him on with her seductive moves and brazen personality. I liked Evelyn as Luella's best friend, but she was frustrating in this book, although I understood where her reservations came from. But ...more

Evie the heroin is a tough women who puts a lot of pressure on her view of love thanks to her mom, who drilled it into her head that love always leads to heartbreak, missed chances and loneliness. Evie becomes a successful fashion designer who just likes some good sex with no strings, constantly reminding herself that no one can bring her happiness but herself.

Jameson is Evie's best friend's brother. Evie has always sexually taunted Jameson because of

Hot, steamy love story

Evelyn is a strong, independent woman. Not looking nor wanting a relationship. She was raised to not love. Raised to believe she only needed herself. That a man would just stand in the way of her success. Jameson wants the exact opposite. He wants love, he wants to settle down. He wants Evelyn. But not just parts of her.

Their story just jumped right off the pages and put a huge smile on my face. Jameson and Evelyn's story was hot, it was steamy, it was sexy. But outside of

I never imagined I would ever write a book. I wasn't even really a reader until the age of twenty. But I picked up a romance and that was it for me. I fell in love. And then one day I stepped into this indie world of books and I started writing. Then I wrote enough to keep going. And then I had a book. Sometimes things happen when you least expect it, but it all falls into place. Writing is it for ...more
