Trope: Brother’s best friend
One-Sentence Summary: Olivia uses her brother’s best friend for his body but ends up wanting more
Review: Aaaaaand Kate Meader is back with another sexy slick read.
For those of you who read the preceding book in the series, Taking The Score, you will have already had a glimpse at Flynn and Olivia’s explosive relationship and in this book that relationship, well, explodes, both figuratively and orgasmically.
The start of the book finds Olivia drowning her sorrows at a hotel bar on her wedding day after finding her fiancé in the throws of it with her maid of honour, and like any self-respecting woman in her situation, Olivia is determined to make up for lost time by having lots of one-night stands. Enter Flynn, a perfect candidate and willing to be used for his body – the only downside being the oodles of history between him and Olivia and of course the ever-present “bro-code”.
Whilst the fact that Flynn’s best friend Brody is Olivia’s brother is of course the source of some tension, Meader does what most authors do not in this trope and avoids making it the main source of conflict between the couple. That honour belongs to the fact that throughout their friendship, Olivia feels that Flynn has been blowing hot/cold and coming in and out of her life as he pleases. Now Flynn has to prove that he is here to stay.
This book is a Brazen and needless to say full of sexy, hot scenes so best avoided as a lunchtime read at work!
Flynn and Olivia have know each other almost all of their lives and for some of it have experienced a love/hate relationship. When what should have been the happiest day of Olivia's life is turned upside down Flynn decides its time to make a move on the girl of his dream. What happens throughout the book is a hilarious journey of what it takes to get your HEA!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good romantic comedy to make you believe that sometimes love is right there in front of you!
Flynn and Olivia featured fairly prominently in Brody and Emma's story and, with it clear that there was some history, along with Olivia's pending nuptials and Flynn's relationship ending, I couldn't wait to dive in and see how things would play out for this couple.
"For one week, I’ll fulfill every fantasy on demand and get you off so many times we’ll break records."
I love the older brother's best-friend trope and this couple do it serious justice. They have the perfect love-hate relationship, Olivia hates, Flynn loves and between them they create sharp, witty banter, leading to some scorching action between them.
"You think one kiss is enough for me to fall to my knees in thanks that you’re gracing me with your magic pen!s?"
Whilst fairly short, Flynn and Olivia's romance never felt rushed and he was the right balance of charming and dirty to her stubborn and headstrong, but each have a vulnerable side, and it was this that balanced things out nicely with an injection of the feels.
"You’re my best friend’s sister, the light to my dark, the woman who haunts my dreams."
If you're looking for a light read that doesn't scrimp on the sexy with loveable characters who have a fabulous chemistry, then One Week to Score is definitely worth checking out. As is the entire series; it's one of the best to come from the Brazen imprint in a long time.

Okay, if I’m completely honest I would have liked Liv to have been a bit more proactive in her relationship with Flynn. Yes, she’s taken a knock after her wedding and Flynn has hurt her a lot in the past, but she mostly surrenders to their fling because it’s inevitable. She puts up some token resistance and attempts to justify it to herself, but there isn’t really a point where she looks at Flynn and says, “Yes, I want him above everything else.” It’s more a case of him getting in the way of all her other choices, so why the hell not?
Not that she doesn’t want Flynn, but it never felt to me like she actively chose him. She also can be a touch childish in her reactions to him and the things he does.
As for Flynn, a little less manipulation might have been nice. He’s a touch messed up in the head and has definite self-esteem issues, but he’s seriously sexy and even got a little romantic at times. He’s just a tad over protective and not very good at trusting in Liv’s own strengths.
However, regardless of those issues, this is a scorching hot read. The chemistry between these two is off the charts, the scenes between them super sexy and the whole story is just delicious. Considering it all takes place in a week, it didn’t feel rushed or forced at all. These two have plenty of history and their relationship worked convincingly for me.
So, if you want something hot and sexy to liven up your summer reads, give this a try. I might have enjoyed the last book (Taking the Score) more, but this is still a steamy, enjoyable read that leaves me wanting more from this author.
