They call me Anvil.
It's not my real name, but that's what it feels like when my meaty fist comes down on you if you misbehave in the road house where I work.
I've seen some crazy stuff as a bouncer. I thought I'd seen it all.
But I've never seen anything like her. Just one look and I knew my life was never going to be the same.

4.5 Stars

I saw my friends reading the author's books and I found out they're safe so I tried this one. I'm glad I did because the story is really good except for a scene at the beginning. Everything that happened between the H and h was so fast. Instalove.

The story is about Melvin "Anvil" and Sarah.

She's studying actuarial science and he's a bouncer at Billy's Suds, the place they first met.

He doesn't believe in love and love at first sight but the first time he laid eyes on her, he felt somethi

My lawd.. *fans myself* this was so hot, whew..

Safe, insta love, VERY short, not much plot but for what it was, it was a great read all wrapped up in a wonderfully hot package.
Also loved the fact that the H became a stay-at-home dad while the h completed her studies. Gotta love and respect heroes like this one.
3.5 stars

Really hot!! This was a good quick smutty read. Not much depth, but enough to keep me reading and smiling by the end. Cute epilogue! I've been avoiding the older H's with virgin h's lately, but this one worked for me :) Great OTT, possessive, dirty talking talking H. The h was fine and did not have the pushover immature vibe found in some books. Entertaining read that finally got me out of my DNF slump.

(view spoiler)
Short, hot, sexy,sweet, OTT and SAFE! This was instalove on speed and I loved it. Short little epilogue about 2 years out.

DNF, and this is only 40 pages.

-eye patches are not sexy to me, sorry. I'm sure if it were a longer book, I could fall in love with the hero, but in a romance novella, I need the hero to be hot.

-the heroine stayed in the room while her friend gave a strange man a blow job. WTF?

-the heroine was overall just an idiot. Nothing she did made any sense.

-they got married after knowing each other a few hours, they didn't love each other, they weren't drunk or high... It made zero sense, and I can susp
This is one short funny fast-paced sexy hot read. It's actually weird but good cause it's insta love for Anvil and Sarah.

I just totally loved Sarah's expression in this book especially to do with badass Anvil this guy rocks hotness to a T and it cracks me up these two.

It was a short read, I enjoyed it although everything was basically Insta. But I really enjoyed the story, it was a steamy read and Anvil was definitely an Alpha when it came to Sarah.

Hot and smutty and doesn’t take itself seriously. This book is a fun start to a series :)
This is like the shortest novella, yet packed with everything. I especially loved the Epilogue!!

If you can handle insta-love, bullet marriage, sexy eye-patched bouncer (used to serve in military. SCORED!), all big and hard (dayum!), and just caveman towards his woman, then, read this book!

That epilogue though! I've never read an alpha male just casually turned Mr. Mom and I'm like, heck ye THIS GOTTA BE MY NEW FETISH *wink wink*

Over the top, insta-everything romance. If you’re looking for a very quick read and are ready to escape reality for a few minutes, this light-hearted, somewhat unbelievable romance may be just what you’re looking for.

Quiet, careful almost 21 year old virgin sneaks into a bar with her friend and is cornered by Anvil one of their bouncers. Thought at first glance they appear to have zilch in common with eachother, Anvil feels drawn to Sarah and he’s certain it’s the real deal.

Love, lust and marria

This is a very short read. It is instant everything. Insta love, marriage and sex withing 24 hrs. Even though the story is short, you get a little clue on the personalities of the characters. If you like short sexy reads this is for you.

*Joint review for Bounced, Nailed and Drilled*

I picked up the books in this series on the recommendation of an author that I love and I'm so happy that I did because these books were wonderful. All three of these books were all types of sexy and naughty and over the top in all the best ways and I couldn't get enough of them. First with Anvil and Sarah in Bounced, I loved the instalove and instalust between those two. Everything happened between those two so quickly and it was perfect. Second wit

The Bouncer & The Actuary

I liked this book very much. OTT, Insta-Love, SHORT story but oh so good! Brill Harper is definitely one of my new faves. Hope she puts out more books (soon) cuz I wanna read them!

Sarah just wanted to have a little fun. She was tired of always doing what was expected of her, always being good. She wanted to feel ALIVE. She soon discovered that going to Billy's Bar was biting off way more than she could chew.
As soon as Anvil, lead bouncer at Billy's, saw Sarah, he k

This was the first book I read by this author, and at first I was disappointed at how short the story was. But then I started reading, and I have to admit I was captivated right from the start. The author really does pack an entire story into just a few pages; a feat that is rare indeed and speaks to the author’s immense talent.

Anvil and Sarah meet on accident, and he is nearly struck dumb by his immediate attraction and depth of feelings for her. He doesn’t let her out of his sight – not even

She goes through with it and when Christa starts to do something with a bouncer at the bar another bouncer walks in on them.

Bounced is a sweet and steamy, real man Insta everything. Sarah's is almost 21. She is has her life planed. Studying finance and want to specialize in risk management. She has never taken a risk herself. So she finds her self in the back room of a dive bar with her friend Christa facing a big scary man with a scar and patch.

Reader confession: I totally picked up this book because that author confession made me laugh. And, yeah, this book is over the top, but in a fun way. Knowing what you were getting going in that made all the crazy, growly possessiveness fun. And no lie, Anvil is very growly and possessive. Magnificently so.

Virgin college student and rough and ready bouncer. It worked. It worked hard. Just like Anvil, if you know what I mean. Heh. Anyway. Sarah wants to go a little wild and Anvil knows she's his

Cute, sexy & funny, perfect short story!

I voluntarily read this book through an Advanced Reader Copy. Sarah and Melvin's story. Sarah is a college student who sneaks into a bar with a friend just before her 21st birthday. While her friend is making "payment" for getting them in, embarrassing Sarah even more, in comes Anvil, which is Melvin's nickname, the head bouncer.

Great insta love short read!

So this is a very short read and wish I had more. It is very fast paced and insta-love to the max. Of course this doesnt happen in real life, but who wouldn't want to. Just have that intensity in love and lust.
This book follows the story of Anvil the bouncer and Sarah a college student who sneaks in to the bar a day before her 21st birthday with her friend. Sarah is tired of doing everything by the book and decides to let loose for the night.
