Billionaire. Playboy. Her brother's best friend.
And her baby's daddy?

The last time I saw Joanna she was just a kid, following me around like a puppy dog.
But now that she's all grown up, those curves make me want to get behind her.
Make her moan my name.
Her over-protective brother would never let it happen.
But I like a challenge.
It can be our little secret.
Until her

I found this book free on Amazon and decided to try. I enjoyed the story, although Joanna was extremely annoying with her denial about Zander, and the risks she put her through because of it. Really liked how her brother takes care of her and glad the Anderson was also a good man for her.
Funny story, with good suspense and drama.

The heroine was TSTL! She made really stupid choices just because she didn't want to face reality. She really got on my nerves!

How dumb can Joanna be?! 'oh he found my office number, surely that means he can't know where I am?' Has she not heard of the internet?! Not to mention, if you were serious enough to marry someone, they'd know about your family, where you grew up, etc. There is a difference between battered woman syndrome, and complete stupidity.
Anderson, well I barely paid attention to you. The ridiculous crap happening had me skipping pages.
Authors, can we please go back to being realistic about pregna

This book ws decent, and I liked the overall story, but it didn't quite right. Like, dome details were off. For example, Anderson said he and Lauren had always just been friends and often did the gala thing together because of that snd wouldn't bring sex into the equation. He then later said they'd had a few flings in the past but not for a long time and that that was the reason he asked her to the gala. Which one is it? It can't be both. Tobias was an ass, especially with blaming Jo fo

rcvd an advanced reader copy from the author for giving my two cents. what an emotional read. we meet Joanna who is leaving her bf for beating on her. she has no where to go so she calls her brother for help. he insists on it plus giving her a job. joanna is a nervous wreck and when she starts work its even worse when she comes face to face with Anderson, her childhood crush and tobias' bff. first impressions arent that great since she walked right into him and spilled coffee all over him.

The title is engaging and as this is not a first time read of a Nicole Elliot story, I was anticipating a good read from this story when I got it. It centres around Joanna who has just escaped from an abusive relationship with Zander who is an abusive bully and stalker. She seeks shelter with her older brother, Tobias, and he's more than happy to have her with him and ready to protect her. But she runs across her old teenage crush and Tobias's best friend, Anderson, who is amazed to see how much ...more

This book was free so I’m not going to complain too much. I liked the actual idea behind the story. The H was ok but he was still kinda weak. I like guys that are alpha, nothing will stand in their way and the woman they want. He was entirely too afraid of Tobias and not just losing his friendship. I think he was physically afraid as well. I however didn’t like the h. She was tstl for sure!!! How dumb can you be? “lucked out and found my office phone number, he has no chance of finding where I a ...more

There was nothing really wrong with this book, it just didnt grab my attention. This was more like a in between book for me. While I love secret baby and brothers best friend romances, this one just wasnt very remarkable. Anderson didnt like Joanna when they were kids, but know all of a sudden he starts liking her because she has curves. It might have developed into more later on, but still. But I did love how he took Joanna's pregnancy. He was there for her and supported her. I liked

Started off good ended weak

So it started off really good, it didn’t drag and it wasn’t to insta love heavy. But then you just got frustrated with the characters. Joanna kept playing off Zanders threats. Even though her brother , Libby and Anderson knew the potential danger no one helped her see it. Then the actual build up to Zander’s return was left flat. So he’s followed her to Chicago from Miami, broke into Libby’s house to confront Joanna but leaves after a few punches from Anderson? Couldn’

Smart, hot and entertaining!

Great read, entertaining, and a real page turner. Joanna flees her abusive boy friend, Zander to find solace and protection with her older brother Tobias. Tobias is completely ignorant of the instant chemistry between his sister and his best friend, Anderson and keeps putting them in situations where they find it impossible to keep their attraction and hook ups under wraps. A few irresponsible nights between these two and when Zander’s obsession with Joanna adds suspe

It was ok.

The story has been done so maybe I was a little bored ... little sister that brothers best friends hated growing up.

The story was fine as was the plot but what I found odd was the timeline. Never do we get "A week later" or even "The next day" so when she turns up pregnant is it suppose to be 4 weeks but it never felt like it. It felt like it was ALL her first week on the job.

Not sure I'll go on with the series. Even if I am curious about Libby (the friend) but her book is far in th

She to her brother who also gave her a job at the firm where he and his best friend Anderson works, as kid Anderson could not stand Joanna now he can’t resist her.

Fell short

Wish I had passed on this book ! It was short rushed and ended far too easily & quickly. It had the potential to be very well developed and a long involved read. But too me it felt short,choppy and like the author just didn't feel like putting any effort I to making a complete story..... So many parts were incomplete or like the author just didn't think more details needed OR should be added. I was really bummed cause this "sounded" like a good read....but it ended up lacking....a

Poorly written

I love the idea of this book, but it's so poorly written I couldn't even finish it. They seem like robots. Sentences like "don't move I want to take you from behind". Seemed to be written by a teenager. No nicknames used and with names like Anderson, Joanna and Tobias it gets annoying when every other sentence is: yes Anderson, I will Tobias, I need to see you Joanna, for crying out loud use a nickname or pet name. I have never not finished a book, but I couldn't do it. Don't waste

Working the numbers!

Joanna is leaving behind an abusive boyfriend in Miami and escaping home to get brother in Chicago. Tobias, takes her in and gives her a job at his firm that he is partners with his best friend, Anderson. Soon Joanna is hooking up with Anderson on the down low so big brother doesn't find out. But then Joanna thinks her ex had followed her to Chicago. And he has!

Find out how Tobias finds out about them and how they handle the addition of a plus sign.

Joanna had always had a crush on her big brother's best friend and now that she was older and curvier she was determined to claim him. Hot, sassy and chemistry that's off the charts and baby makes three. No shortage of drama or suspense with an abusive ex boyfriend. No spoiler here, but there is an HEA and thank goodness, no cliffhanger. I read an advance reader copy and voluntarily chose to write a review. Well written with interesting characters and a page turning storyline.

Don't waste your time or money. No character development and we're supposed to believe that Anderson is willing to risk his relationship with his best friend, a man he considers to be his brother, because the guy's sister is so incredibly irresistible. Hasn't seen her for awhile but one glance and he's salivating and throwing his best friend over just so he can get in a girl's pants. Makes him a total loser, in my opinion, and not someone I care to read about.

This was 3.5 stars for me... the beginning of the book was great and had a story line that grabbed you and you wanted to invest in the characters but about halfway through it lost me... things started moving too fast and it was like it just wanted to be wrapped up instead of finishing the full story... I think with a bit of reworking it could really be a great overall book...

Full is Surprise And Heat

I received an arc and this is my honest review.
Overall I liked the storyline and the characters. Part of the timeline felt off to me but maybe I missed something somewhere. I really liked the last scene with Zander. That felt like justice! I would recommend this book to my friends.
