"She's a liar," he said.

"And you're a sex addict. Fantastic pairing."

Gah! I loved this installment. Evan and Reagan go full circle and it was perfect! After the events at the end of Volume 2, I wasn't so sure they could come back from the misguided feelings of lies and betrayal, but her we get the love story. And let's face it, hotness aside, I'm a romantic at heart.

If you're a fan of that angsty fine line between love and hate, you'd love this book! Both Evan and Reagan feel betrayed by the other person yet their insane chemistry was unstoppable. And holy mother of hate-f*cks. Call it what you want...angry sex. It was SMOKING!

Yes, Evan is one arrogant son of a beech but SWOON! The man could charm the knickers off a nun! Seems no matter the need Reagan had to look all calm, cool, and collected- it all went to sh*t under his spell. We all need an Evan in our lives!

A fantastic conclusion from a dynamic author duo! I'm looking forward to what Ella and Brooke have in store for us in 2016 as their writing chemistry is seemless! A fantastic erotic contemporary serial romance that delivered it all- hot smoking alpha dirty-talkin' hero, strong minded, professional, confident heroine, angsty love/hate chemistry with a trickle fed plot that'll keep the pages turning. And, in the end, a fantastic love story that goes full circle....

About Brooke

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Flash Point is her debut solo novel, and she is the co-author of the erotic serial, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released on November 11, 2015.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
