I received this free ARC from Entangled Publishing for reading and reviewing only. The official release date is February 24, 2014. In this review I will try not mention any spoilers because no one has gotten to read it yet, but I can’t make any promises.

This novel is a Brazen novel. I had no idea what this was when I requested it, so I looked up what ‘brazen’ meant, and this is what I got: (adj) 1. bold and without shame 2. chiefly LITERALLY made of brass. And I pretty sure it was not made of brass, so I went with the first definition. And let me tell you, it was definitely bold and without shame. Some of the material in there just made me blush. It’s not recommended for younger audiences.

I really liked this book. I could not put it down. I put on my sweats and just read, for hours. Honestly, I love to do that. It’s one of my favorite things in the world. I did not want to put it down. I got an extremely excited feeling to know I got to read this before everyone else, and I finished it before it ever came out. I love it!

Okay, back to the review. I feel as if the relationship between Dom and Zoe  (they were super cute together) happened really fast. They meet each other and they head out to Ancora. They make it to the cottage before the big storm, and they go at it… seven times. Okay… you just met like five minutes ago, but that’s fine I guess. Then, they’re talking about falling in love. It’s fast, I get it was set in the timespan of a week. They won’t last very long. Also a couple days later, they meet up with Allegra (funny name right?) and her fiance, I don’t think we ever got his name, and they talk about marriage. A bit quick, don’t you think?

The only thing I didn’t like was that there weren’t a lot of chapters. I’m a girl who loves her chapters, but there weren’t a lot in this book. I think there were like nine chapters. Yeah, there were nine. So there weren’t a lot of convenient stopping places. But I read it all in one sitting, so who cares. It’s just the little things.

Nicola Marsh is a good author. I was laughing throughout this novel. It was charming and witty, a bit like Prince Dominic, whom I would like to meet and marry. I need to be Zoe. I enjoyed reading it, although it was very steamy/descriptive at some parts. But if you want to read a brazen romance novel, here you go. This one was magnificent. And if you don’t like it, you’re nuttier than a jar of peanut butter. (I really hope that line stays in, because I cracked up reading it. It might be my new favorite saying.)
