Good girls finish last? Screw that.

Being a small town girl isn’t so bad. Unless Mom’s the town joke and I’ve spent my entire life shying away from her flamboyance. College in Las Vegas should be so much cooler. But it’s not. Bad things happen. Real bad.

So when my brother Reid offers me an all-expenses paid vacation to Australia for a month, I am so there. Discounting the deadly snakes on the outback cattle station, I should be safe. Until I meet Jack.

Jack defines bad boy and then some. He’s big, buffed, bronzed, and hotter than any guy I’ve ever met. His sexy Aussie accent makes me melt. And the guy can cook.

But he’s my brother’s new bestie and he lives on the other side of the world. There’s no future for us.

Is there?

Kristina’s Review:

This book was just the right bit of tease to set up my need to read Nicola’s follow up book Brash. I quickly wrapped myself around a need for a strong, Aussie cook. I couldn’t help it. Jack is that yummy. I was so indebted to this read, that I may or may not have been caught reading aloud in my best Aussie accent. Which if you must know, is pretty damn impressive. 

 
It was a little hard for me to imagine these characters the ages they are depicting in this read, but I know that it solidifies the characters personalities in the next book, Brash.
Jess is coming off of a terrible experience with a buddy she placed a lot of trust in, and is thrust into a new world via her brother Reid. She spends the next month exploring Queensland, and Jack’s backside. 
Jack completely unsatisfied with his life decides to give up his playboy ways, and focus on his future. With  budding interest in cooking he finds himself with an amazing opportunity to sky rocket him into that new future. He uses that as motivation to not show Jess how “what’s down under” works. 
 
I really enjoyed this quick prequel to Nicola’s Brash, and Blush. It is what I will forever consider the biggest case of blue balls ever given to a character. This man wanted Jess so bad, but kept his distance even when it seemed impossible. The ground work was laid, and as the story wrapped up I found the urgency to one click it’s follow up, almost immediately! 
 
This was a solid, dingo filled 4 stars for me!
