For the last year, Jasmine has been
living in Paris. She decides she is ready to come home and
calls the two men that mean the most to her: Seth and Zane
Morgan. Years ago Seth and Zane rescued Jasmine and took her
into their home, thus saving her from a life of drudgery and
prostitution. Neither man has ever looked at her as anything
but a younger sibling. That is going to change if Jasmine
has her way. She wants them to see her as the woman she has
become and realize that the young girl they raised and
protected is now grown up and knows what she wants - which
just happens to be both Seth and Zane in her life, in her bed,
Seth and Zane have spent the last year
missing the one person in their lives that they both love.
The time has passed slowly and is almost unbearable until Jaz
calls and asks to come home. Neither man wants to admit that
they suddenly see their Jasmine in a new and sensual light.
When she left for Paris she was an almost waiflike, innocent
girl, she returned as a beautiful woman who entices them at
every turn. While each man wants Jasmine, it is going to
take a lot of convincing for them to agree to what she
proposes. Seth and Zane do not want to give Jasmine up, but
they are unsure if they can share - especially Seth and it
seems that Jasmine is not willing to settle for less.
Like fine chocolate and great coffee,
Brazen simply whisked me away to Texas and the
ranch of Seth and Zane Morgan. I watched Jasmine as she took
the biggest chance of her life and held my breath in
anticipation of Seth and Zane's reactions. Out of the two
brothers, Zane was more laid back accepted things easier than
Seth. My love for Zane's character was almost instantaneous
and held fast the entire book. Seth, in true older sibling
style, took a bit more convincing and seemed a tad more
stubborn. He often times didn't think before he spoke and in
one instance I wanted to reach into the pages and grab him by
the neck and make him listen to what he was saying to both his
brother and Jasmine. In his defense, however, when he made his
decision, his true character shined. He was thoughtful,
loving, and quite the charmer. As for Jasmine, she had more
guts than ten men and I found her love of Seth and Zane
refreshing, while it couldn't be termed 'innocent' it was
almost angelic in a sense that it was real, true, and
I could not put Brazen down
and have no choice but to highly and joyfully recommend it for
this month. Maya Banks is on a roll and I, for one, think
that she deserves every great thing that is coming her way.
Run, don't walk to Samhain and purchase Brazen.
It is truly an outstanding read.
