“Truth or dare?"
“I’ll take your dare.”
“Kiss me.”

I don’t believe in Prince Charming, but when I met a handsome stranger on a rooftop his words intrigued me and his dares left nothing but temptation.

Then I learned the truth.

His name is Bryce Sexton. Media mogul, workaholic and a heart of stone. He’s broody AF and yet every woman in San Francisco wants him.

So why won’t he leave me alone?

Wherever I go, he’s there, trying to force his way into my world. What he doesn’t know is I already have a man in my life. A tiny redhead who loves Legos and Superheroes.

With every push, Bryce pulls me in further. Our pasts are laced with betrayal. Our futures are unpredictable. Our chemistry is explosive.

With each dare I uncover a truth, but he's exactly what I don’t need right now.

So why did I have to go and kiss him?

Bryce Sexton is the workaholic, the demanding one, the brother with no real personal life. As the oldest Sexton sibling the media empire his mother created has been in his hands since she passed, but with his father and stepmother threatening to throw it all away he's working harder and demanding more of everyone. He's working to keep her legacy alive, but he needs his brothers to help him do it. When sassy, beautiful Tessa catches his eye he finds himself obsessing, she presents him with the rare opportunity to forget about work, even if just for a moment. Tessa makes Bryce open his eyes, she makes him want to live a little, she makes him believe there's a chance he can have more than work in his life. But the Sexton brothers' dad no longer believes in the business and he allows his wife to jeopardize his son's relationship and future. 

Bryce is book two in the Sexton Brothers series and while it is a standalone I do personalty recommend that you read Austin first. The novels begin at the same point in time, but Bryce is the opposite of Austin in every way. I liked Austin, but I knew I would love Bryce. He's as handsome in a suit as he is in casual clothes and he's a workaholic, but with a heart of gold. Tessa just flips a switch in him, she makes him want things he used to once want, reminding himself of what he dreamed of and who he really is when not behind a desk. She brings out this side of him that is relaxed, relatable, and very attractive. Tessa, unlike Bryce, is quite a bit more relaxed in her life. She has to have a personal life, she has a child, but she does everything in her life for him. Bryce is the first guy to make her want to make room for something more and he does it in a demanding, but not overbearing way. They click and it's incredibly sweet to see their lives fit together despite how different they are. In this book the one you expect to be afraid of feelings is the one who embraces them, Bryce swoops the girl off her feet and learns along the way that being a workaholic is not all it's cracked up to be.

Bryce is a sweet, sexy romance with just a hint of the suspense that Austin had and quite a bit more OW drama. It's entertaining, a fairly fast read, and not as business-oriented as I thought it was going to be based on my first impressions of the hero. It's a story about family, friends, and love, and learning to prioritize happiness over wealth and legacies. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to meet the third Sexton brother. 


“Tell me a secret.”

“I’m falling for you.”

Austin Sexton is the man I’ve always tried to stay away from. He’s arrogant, entitled and a total ass. That’s why I didn’t bother giving him my name last night. We’ll never see each other again.

Or so I thought.

Imagine my surprise when I start my new job only to come face-to-face with the blue eyes I just declared all wrong for me. No, he’s not my boss, but being my boss’ brother seems almost worse.

No matter how hard I try to push him away, his secrets draw me in. When it comes to a Sexton that could be lethal...for my heart.

I have his secrets and I won’t tell a soul. Now I just have to not fall for him completely.
