Brazen (Brazen #1) by Maya Banks
One woman’s campaign to win the hearts of the two men she loves. Jasmine left the Sweetwater Ranch and the Morgan brothers, no longer able to bear the painful dilemma of loving them both. After a year away, she gains a new perspective and returns home with one goal. To make Seth and Zane Morgan hers. For her, it’s all or nothing. Jaz may have left an innocent girl, but she’s returned a beautiful, sensual woman. Seth and Zane aren’t prepared for the full-on assault she launches and each battle an attraction they’ve fought for years. —Samhain, 2008
Jaz returns home to Texas after a year in Paris. What she was doing in Paris and how she could afford it, no one knows. The only discernible skill Jaz seems to possess is playing a horny damsel in distress and that won’t pay for a one-way ticket to Austin let alone France.
Her goal of a triad-relationship with the Morgan brothers, Seth and Zane, seems far-fetched at best. I’ve heard of kissing cousins, but kissing brothers…eh I don’t know.
Jaz makes a blubbering mess of showing the Morgan brothers what a mature woman she has become. Flaunting her body for attention which only wins her their ire and ends in her needing to be rescued from walking. Another feat she can’t do right. Seth and Zane just watched longingly as Jaz makes a fool of herself with temper tantrums and run-away attempts when her genius proof plan to seduce the brother, doesn’t go her way. What the Morgan brothers should have done, is told that heifer to sit her ass down and talk things out like the grown woman she keeps claiming to be.
Jaz is selfish and unethical in her attempts to woe both men to her goal. She was lucky she didn’t rip the family apart with the way she floated back and forth between their beds. No one calls her out for it or makes her question if what she wants is worth driving a wedge between two brothers and business partners. Not to mention Seth clearly states he has no desire to share her with another man, let alone his brother. But who cares what anyone else wants or needs if it doesn’t align with what Jaz wants, right?
Perhaps if Jaz had done less falling down and restating the past over and over again and more bed bouncing this might have actually been a fun a read.—(Low) Borrow It.
