Knocked Out By Love
Brody Minton has loved Scarlett Harris for years. But she’s his best friend’s wife, so he’s worked hard to keep his distance. Hearing the marriage is over shouldn’t change anything. Only an ass would make a move on a friend’s ex… Except Scarlett wants help getting back in the dating game, and Brody’s torn. If he helps her out, he can keep an eye on her and guard her vulnerable heart. But having the woman he’s longed for for years in arms’ reach is hell on a man’s restraint, no matter how iron strong his will.
But loving Scarlett is only half the fight.
All Scarlett Harris wants is to get away for a while and rethink her life after filing for divorce from her lying, cheating bastard of a husband. The gorgeous Bahamas sounds like the perfect escape, except she’s booked in very resort Brody “The Iron” Minton is staying at for his sister’s wedding. Now her ex’s best friend is dogging her every move, and is a witness to her first pathetic attempts at flirting in years. If Brody isn’t going to leave her alone, then she’ll just recruit him to help get her reacquainted with her single self.
This book was a great continuation of the Love to the Extreme series. I loved Brody so hard. He was this big bad fighter in the ring, but this sweet, strong, caring guy out of it. He had feelings for his best friend’s wife for pretty much ever. Then he finds out that the marriage is over.
Scarlett just found out that her husband is cheating on her and wants to let loose a little and experience all the things she missed out on. When she runs into Brody they both get a little more than they bargained for. She has had her confidence damaged so bad that she needs a mentor to get back in the game and of course Brody volunteers.
I really enjoyed the story and how Brody was constantly helping to build her back up and make her feel more confident and beautiful. It was a sweet read, with a large dash of steaminess thrown in and a super hot, protective and sweet alpha thrown in. I recommend pick up this entire series every book has something special and they are great reads.
