Brazen Entangled 


A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint... 

Some lines are meant to be crossed... 

One explosive device was all it took to turn Holt Cunningham from ass-kicking Marine to IT technician. Hell, he's still not over it. So when the cute little strawberry blonde at the bar asks him to kiss her, Holt can't resist the temptation of a sexy distraction. Before he knows it, she's blown his mind...and then skipped out the next morning. 

Lydia Thomas never expected things with Holt to go quite that far, but oh, it was worth it. After being far too good for way too long, she was ready to be bad. Except that there's that tiny detail that Lydia kept to herself-Holt just spent the night doing naughty things...with his best friend's little sister. 

One night isn't nearly enough. But with his friendship on the line, how far will Holt go in order to claim what's his?  

My Thoughts:

Okay this is way stinking late and I do apologies for that. However, it's finally getting posted. Anyway, I guess I should dive right into my thoughts. Oh my goodness, Diane does not disappoint when it comes to this story, boy this is hot and fun. Who doesn't love a hot nerd? Seriously, they just are so adorable, and Holt is definitely fits the build and more. Then you have Lydia who is sweet and kind, by the way off-limits. Darn those overprotective brothers who happens to be the best friend.

Yes, one of my favorite troupes, best friend's sibling. These are always fun cause you have the attraction to the forbidden fruit. However, Holt didn't know that Lydia was his best friend's sister until after the fact. Throughout the story we see Holt trying to fight this attraction to Lydia, and Lydia going okay whatever floats your boat. A perfect song for this story would be Hot n Cold by Katy Perry, because Holt goes from hot and cold and it throws Lydia off. When it's hot during the story, boy its hot.

All right, I personally think Taking What's His is probably the best story in the series. Plus, who doesn't love story when you are face with the challenging of following the bro code or following your heart. Taking What's His will give you a domineering geeky guy who might get you to say "Yes sir".
