First of all, I love the names Jonathan and Lexie.
Second of all, this erotic romance is 'hawt'!
and
Finally and most surprisingly, the plot is an action packed, suspense thriller romance.

Waaaa?

I picked up an erotic romance novella as a breather between longer books. My emotions weren't quite ready to let go of my previous read and move on to my next. Erotica is my go to when I just want a fun, sexy read.

What I wasn't expecting was an expertly written, fast paced, hot romance.

Wow…what was that? I’ve never had a book quickie before. It should have come with a cigarette, or at least a warning label! I’ve read novellas that were tied to full length novels, but never one on its own. Even when I beta read, I (used to) try to avoid novellas because I didn’t think they were long enough to earn commitment. Make sense? Of course not, because my reasoning was stupid.

A novella, especially an erotic one, isn’t asking for a commitment. It doesn’t want to take up my time and keep

Erica Lynn raises interesting questions in Her Husband's Brother. We meet Lexie celebrating her birthday, afraid to tell her closest friends she filed for divorce. That's the first question Lynn throws out. When is time to let go of a marriage? Lexie has done her best, but one person can't save something if the other isn't interested.

Then we meet Jonathon Hayes, and we get to the more interesting question, what if you married the wrong brother? Jonathon was a complete jerk when he met Lexie for

Jonathan has always been attracted to Lexie - even before his brother claimed her as his. Staying away seemed like the best option, until new developments necessitate his presence in her life. Will the secrets he's keeping result in more damage than he ever imagined?

I enjoyed this spicy romantic suspense. There was chemistry between the main characters and the plot line flowed well. I really look forward to more stories involving the characters in this book.

Cuff Me is a crazy quick, intense and steamy read. Lexie is unknowingly married to a drug dealer and is miserable and trying to get out. Jonathan is her brother in law who she has always held a hot chemistry with. This book while being super quick had a great couple twists and turns and I found myself really enjoying this read. The heat between the two characters is off the charts and I really enjoyed this

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

For a short story, this is packed full of plot and action - all surrounding an unexpectedly sweet romance. My advice is read it and see just how it can be done! I rather liked the style, and definitely thinking back, even though the pace is speedy to say the least, it is an entertaining story. Those of you who might worry given the title, probably shouldn't, as that issue is nullified within pages. I risk giving somethin

This is the first book of Erica`s I have read and I have to say it was amazing. When I first started to read this book I felt bad for Lexie being in a marriage that is failing because her husband is an ass. Then as we go we get introduced to her brother in law who as it turns out has had a thing for her since before she was married. Talk about love at first sight. As the books moves forward you see a relationship blossom between Lexie and her brother in law and also get twists and turn

Loved. Loved. Loved.
Erica Lynn is a new author for me. I loved this book. While I do not like cheating, in this scenario I was able to overlook it because of Lexi already filing for divorce. Jonathan was a hot piece of something and the chemistry between him and Lexie are off the pages. I was totally rooting for them and Erica gave me the ending that I wanted for them both. Can't wait to read the next one.

I really enjoyed this novella. It was a sexy, fast paced, read. Loved the chemistry between Lexie and Jonathan. I'm an absolute goner for cocky, arrogant, alpha males that can be brought to their knees by the right woman. If I had any criticism to give, it would be that I wish the book had more pages for me to read. Really looking forward to the next book in the series!

Decided to go COMPLETELY outside my normal genre because I needed something to get me over my recent book hangover. My reading buddy said I needed a "rebound" novella, a "quickie" to mend my broken heart after my last read. This certainly did that! The writing was solid, and boy, was this story packed with steam! *fanning myself* Thanks Robin for the recommendation!

This is the first book I've read by Erica and I'm heading straight to Cuff me.

This is a short read packed with lies and betrayal and a loveless marriage.

Super sexy, quickie read

Her Husband's Brother is my first experience with Erica Lynn's writing. Upon finishing this one, I immediately 1-clicked the other two books in the Love and Justice series. Lexi and Jonathon are on fire. I was surprised at how much was packed into this novella. Tons of feels, incredibly steamy scenes, uber protective alpha, and sexy AF characters, and some added action and suspense to keep you on your toes...what more could you ask for? I loved this story and couldn't get

This was a fantastic start to the novella series, Love and Justice. The chemistry between Lexie and Jonathan was off the charts! There were some very sizzling scenes between the two. This fast paced story also included secrets, lies, and danger. I would definitely recommend this, especially for a quick afternoon read.
*I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is my honest review.*

With Lexie's marriage over she never imagines the secrets her husband is keeping from her. WIth the help of her brother in law Jonathan she will escape a nightmare in the making. The sexual tension between her and Jonathan is off the wall. Can she put everything behind her to start a future with Jonathan?

This book was awesome and if the rest of the series falls in line it will be a great series.

An amazing, steamy read

I loved this fast read about Lexie and Jonathon. Lexie has just turned thirty and has filed for a divorce. At a bar celebrating, she is attacked and who comes to her rescue? None other than Jonathon, her soon to be ex brother-in-law. The same man she has had many fantasies about. No spoilers, so grab your copy and be ready for the secrets that unfold.

Great romantic suspense novella. Lexie is finally quietly ending her marriage when her brother-in-law returns and they finally give in to the attraction that was always there. His family, especially his brother, has kept a lot of secrets from her and those secrets involve a lot of danger she is not aware of. Their chemistry is off the charts and the story is well-written.

Lexie and Jonathon are ill-fated as lovers until the day he saves her from an attack. She's married to his drug lord brother, but the attraction between Lexie and Jonathon can't be denied. This quick, thrilling read was sexy and exciting! With the forbidden desire these two faced, it was a dilemma that could only end one way!
