A Moment of Weakness,  Brooklyn Skye

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:  Romance,

I usually like Brazen reads and this sounded fun but...sadly it was a fail for me.
I didn’t like either of the main leads, Micah was a surly, arrogant individual and Laurel was just a pushover. Given Micah wants the best for his daughter, and Laurel supposedly needs the job and wants to do her best, they didn’t act that way. I didn’t feel any connection between them except lust which they both gave way to far too soon IMO.
Then the fact it was for the summer only – what was going to happen after that?  Who’d be looking after his daughter? He has to leave for his second “job” at late hours and short notice very often, and its a dangerous one where he could end in hospital or worse. That's not what a caring father does....When you’ve kids you have to plan for every eventuality especially if you don’t have other close family to help. The ending, the scenes at the school just wouldn’t/couldn’t happen. Wouldn’t be allowed in these security conscious days. I know its fiction and you can stretch reality but this was a step too far for me.
It just didn’t work for me. I struggled with it, picking it up, putting it aside, trying again and again to get a feel for the characters and the story but I never did. Some you win some you lose and this was a lose for me. As always though everyone likes different things and there will be readers who love this story – its all very personal and its not a bad book, just one that doesn’t work for me.

Stars: Sorry, just a two – others will love it, five star it and that’s great for them but for me this story just didn’t make it.

1 - It was all very typical and allowed her mind to wander. Star.

DNF @ 63%

Add an unlikeable emotionally closed off Hero, and a Heroine who goes from innocent and inexperienced, to overly opinionated and an officiando of the blow job at a very quick clip, mixed together with multiple plot-lines, none of which that felt adequately developed, and a lack of any real connection between Micah and Laurel to keep things moving along, and A Moment of Weakness ground to a stop for me.

"Wouldn't want to lose you."

The story had potential, but it could have done with less going on and more focus on the main points. Micah and Laurel also suffer from whip-lash mood swings and it just all got a little busy, without anything really moving or expanding. I don't expect to find my favorite character in a contemporary romance / Erotic novel to be a six year old child, and that is exactly what happened with this one, and indifference moved to boredom pretty quickly.

I stuck with it hoping it would pick up, as the author can write, but the feelings and emotions were very much in the background, and it made it extremely difficult to see or feel that anything real was actually developing between them.

When I pick a Brazen book up I have a couple of expectations. Namely sex, some storyline and chemistry. And if the sex isn't forthcoming then the storyline and chemistry need to be in place to keep the momentum and my interest. Brooklyn Skye is a new-to-me author, so I went into this with only these expectations.

"You want the good or bad news first?"

Unfortunately, none of the above were particularly forthcoming. The thing is, these characters weren't unlikeable. I liked Laurel and Micah and his daughter, Shae. And the storyline had potential. But I was bored, nothing particularly grabbed, the characters were underdeveloped, their chemistry was lacklustre and at 50% there had been nothing more than Micah displaying he had a fairly skilled mouth which is when I parted ways.

I really can't say much more than that, but A Moment of Weakness failed to tick the boxes of what I expect from the Brazen imprint and on this occasion, wasn't for me.

When I read the blurb for this book I was really excited, but unfortunately about 1/3 of the way through the book started to fall a bit short for me and it just wasn't grabbing my attention as much. I'm a reader who needs the angst, the drama, and this book didn't have enough of that for me.
We have Laurel, she's in between teaching jobs and needs a way to get the rent paid til fall classes begin. She's also been best friends with April since college who also happens to be Micha's (our main character) sister.
Micha is an enforcer for the mob, a partner in the bar called The Alibi, and a single DILF.
With the help of April, Laurel gets a summer job being a nanny. Yes, the live in Nanny for Micha.
The story started off with Micha on a job for the mafia, after that we don't get anymore of the glimpse into anything else he deals with, besides the bruising after effects.
He talked of the danger he could always be in from his 'boss' and nothing of that was ever shown. In any mafia story I ever read or watched, it's once your in its for life, you get out in a body bag. Micha's father, he was out alive, which leads me to believe they are not so powerful for all the mentions of everyone's safety. Yes, I know it's fiction, but that part of the plot didn't really fit in with the story.
Then we have Laurel, she's described through and through as the goody-goody, it was just hard to relate to someone with no flaws.
There were a couple of discrepancies in the plot which were a bit confusing and there was a lot of description of the characters going on which I felt took away from the flow of the story.
