Synopsis: He’s the man she loves to hate . . .
Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. Shots lined up at the bar? Bring it. Hot stranger on the hook? Come on down. What this party does not need is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seven years ago.
She’s the woman he has to have . . .
Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger, not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task. For one week, he’ll make her honeymoon-for-one a sizzling party for two.
Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time . . .
But the taboo they’re breaking is only the beginning . . . and Flynn’s part in Liv’s wedding debacle could bring about their end.

I love a good romance in which one character is the best friend to their romantic interest's sibling and they don't want to cross that line but they inevitably can't help who they fall in love with. There's just something about these romance stories that come off as credible because the characters already have some type of history. And goodness knows, Flynn and Olivia were friends for a long time before it all went to hell 7 years prior, but something occurred that has caused Olivia's feelings toward Flynn to be not quite so friendly, more like animosity hovering somewhere around the hatred border. But we all know it's a thin line between love and hate.
This book is quality entertainment friends. Sexy fun with a dose of drama and angst (but not enough to detract from the story). If you've read the previous two books in the series, you've already met both Olivia and Flynn, so I was excited to see they finally get their shot at love, but it doesn't come easy. At heart, Flynn is a good guy and I loved when he would put his feelings out there. I applaud Olivia's strength, she's a pretty well-rounded individual, especially given the fact that her father really wasn't in her life like he was with her brother Brody.
The chemistry between Flynn and Olivia is pretty damn hot, and watching the connection between them grow stronger was great. The character development is on point, and the interactions are both hilarious at times and sexy at others. Another winner from Ms. Meader!

EVEN THE SCORE (Tall, Dark, and Texan, #1)

Even the Score Book #1
Synopsis: He’ll make her an offer she can’t refuse…
Actress Tess McKenzie is performing in the Tenth Circle of Showbiz Hell—dinner theater. All she really wants is to start a theater of her own. Then Tess receives an offer she can’t refuse. She’ll get her funding…if she pretends to be the fiancée to her nemesis, Texan property tycoon Hunter Dade. If she’s going to pull this off, she’ll need all the luck she can get. Break a leg, indeed.
On the verge of a big business deal, Hunter needs to hire a fiancée. He hasn’t quite forgiven Tess for ruining his wedding, but when their chemistry goes from combative to straight-up lust, the “no sex” clause in their mutually beneficial arrangement is tested. Which is a serious problem, because if Tess isn’t careful, she’ll go from breaking a leg to breaking her heart…

TAKING THE SCORE (Tall, Dark, and Texan, #2)

Taking the Score Book #2

Synopsis: His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…
Paying down her sister’s debts has left Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to moonlight as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.
Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction … and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. And then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.
Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one steamy, illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.
