Flutter (The Nash Brothers #3) by Carrie Aarons
He can’t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.
Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?
Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time he’s sneaking into her bed.
Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, he’ll have to admit his feelings for the woman he’d do anything to protect.
What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book 3 in the Nash Brothers Series, Flutter is a frenemies to lovers forbidden type romance that I find irresistible. I am convinced that each of the Nash Brothers books gets hotter, crazier and more exciting than the last. I had conflicting emotions from the beginning of this book. I knew the author had an amazing story in store for me, but Forrest Nash had that cocky persona that really grates on my nerves! And the more I read, the more I couldn’t help but feel that he was using that to hide something!
Penny’s story tugged at my heart right from the beginning. A single mother, through the most tragic of circumstances, she is concentrating on raising her boys to the best of her abilities. She doesn’t lack for support, or help, but still, she’s lonely. Forrest, on the other hand, drives her crazy! As annoying as he is, she can’t stop the explosive attraction that thrums between them whenever they are around each other.
This book was tragic, and amazing. My heart hurt for Penny, but it also held hope, that she would find her happiness, and heal her own heart. I loved the connection between Forrest and Penny, and the hidden secrets of this book sucked me in from the beginning. I couldn’t put it down, had to find out what happened. I won’t say anything else about it, but it sure made for a fascinating story!
