Raised to be the "perfect" wife, Victoria has spent her days maintaining her impeccable outward appearance and her nights mingling with the rich and entitled. When her engagement to Scott ended, Victoria thought she'd be rid of him and his circle of friends forever, but a chance encounter with Brock will change not only the way she sees him, but the way she sees herself. Brock is a man who's happy and content with his life. A surrogate parent to his now-adult brothers, he spends his days running the company he built himself and his nights playing in his brothers' local band. When he runs into Victoria in the bar after a show, sparks unexpectedly fly, and he's interested in seeing where it goes. But can the man who's happy with his life, convince the woman who always wants more, to give him a shot with only 15 Minutes on the clock?

15 Min Most people believe that opposites attract and after reading this sizzling page turner I totally understand the why of it. Brock is a loyal friend, hard worker and great big brother/father who stepped up to the plate once his parents passed. Victoria comes off as a uptight snob who thinks she's better than everyone else but is truly just a misunderstood woman who wishes not to turn into a bitter shell like her mother after her parents divorced. Together these two click he brings out a fun loving woman while she makes him realize that 15 minutes is never enough and that she see's him for the fantastic guy that he is. The chemistry explodes off the page whenever their in a room together even if its from a touch of their fingers. I enjoyed catching up with previous characters and seeing how they are and how they interact with Victoria who they thought wasn't good enough for another of their friends. This series has awesome characters who leaving you wishing that you was there right along with them as they watch Brock and his brothers play in their band while hanging out at the bar. I so loved this book and can't wait to catch and visit this awesome cast of characters once again.

Reviewed by Heather Osborne for Readers' Favorite 15 Minutes by Bethany Lopez is a sizzling novella about an unlikely pair of lovers. Victoria and Brock are polar opposites, but, as the saying goes, opposites attract. After running into Victoria at a bar, Brock feels this undeniable pull to the strait-laced woman. Although she was engaged to his friend at one point, he wants to pursue some sort of relationship with her. Victoria has grown up guarding her heart against men after her father left her mother for another woman. She’s unsure of Brock’s intentions, but gives him the benefit of the doubt. When they finally connect, sparks fly, but can they maintain the relationship in the face of so many differences? Miss Lopez takes a timeless plot and tweaks it slightly. Usually, it is the women who change the men, but in this case, Brock is the one to peel Victoria from her shell. However, I felt the conflict was a bit abrupt and not very believable. I had hoped for more build up. Up until the climax of the novella, I thought things were going rather well between the pair. I loved Brock’s dedication to Victoria, but thought his desire to protect her from pain was slightly out of character. She had already changed and wanted to be with him and he shoved that aside. It made me dislike him slightly at that point in the story. I did love how his friends grew to accept Victoria, though, and were forgiving of her past with Scott. 15 Minutes is a steamy weekend read and is sure to give you a thrill.

I liked this book. I was curious to see how the author would get Brock and Victoria together. After all, she's the spoiled ice queen and he's the hard working family guy. I guess opposites do attract! We see a softer side of Victoria in this book. A side I was hoping she possessed. I had my doubts about these two getting together at first, but when she went out with Brock, the sparks flew. She needed someone to nudge her inner Tori out and encourage her to do what she loved. Brock being the big teddy bear, family guy type, did that for her. I love this series! We see glimpses of all the characters in each other's books, but we really get to know them in their own book. That's what Victoria needed in order for all of us to accept her into the group. And now, like the rest, we'll continue to watch her grow with Brock by her side in future books. *I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This sexy romance, 4th in the Time for Love series (but can be read as a standalone) is the story of Brock and Victoria. Brock heads up a successful painting business with his brothers whom he's cared for since the untimely death of his parents when they were teenagers. They also perform together in a rock band called Whiskey Heat at a local bar. When snobby Victoria shows up there one day, ex-fiance of his friend Scott and a woman he never expected to see in this lower class environment, he is struck by the vulnerability he glimpses in her eyes and is surprised by his visceral reaction to her. He strikes a bargain with her, asking for 15 minutes of her time to take a chance on starting something with him. When Victoria agrees, she is surprised to find that despite her initial misgivings, opposites do attract and Brock is everything she never thought she was looking for. The question is whether or not their relationship will be strong enough to stand the tests that come their way. Though this book is a standalone and the previous interactions are well explained, it does benefit the reader to have read the previous book in the series, 42 hours, in which Victoria and Brock have significant roles as secondary characters. Victoria comes across in that story as a selfish, unhappy, and not very likeable woman. I thoroughly enjoyed how her character was redeemed in this book, showing her to be a vulnerable and reserved woman who made her mistakes but is willing to admit to them and be a better woman for Brock. She definitely shows a lot of character growth and becomes in this story the woman that she really aims to be. Brock, having been emotionally hurt in 42 hours by the fallout from the relationship in that story, deserves a sweet woman and that woman turns out to be Victoria. He sees beyond her reserved and snobbish shell to the sweetness inside and brings it out of her. His character is thoroughly likeable as a confident, caring man, willing to use his body and sex appeal to entice Victoria into a sexual relationship that goes beyond what he planned, but in a good way. The sexual attraction between them simmers from the start of the story and the love scenes between them are steamy and emotionally satisfying. The secondary characters play a key role in the plot, both the circle of friends that they are involved in and Brock's two brothers. The camaraderie between them and the humour and witty dialogue go a long way to enticing the reader to want to read all of their stories. Overall this was a wonderful entertaining read, with a fast paced plot, engaging characters, sexy love scenes and a sweet happy ending. 5 stars!

My heart has been stolen by this exquisitely mesmerizing and incredibly beautiful story of self-discovery and unexpected surprises. Sometimes life presents us with exactly what we need whether or not we have the ability or desire to see it. At those times, we can choose to grab hold of the precious opportunity and dare to see what possibilities could come from it, or we can back away and run from the sometimes uncomfortable change staring us in the face. Those with enough courage to take a leap of faith are rewarded with a gift that fills a part of their life they never knew was empty. Those lucky few understand that they have been blessed beyond their wildest dreams, and they will do whatever necessary to ensure that they never lose it again. Brock knows what it’s like to have to step up and take on responsibility in the face of disaster. He is no stranger to working hard, and he enjoys the fruits of his labor. His brothers depend on him to be their rock in the midst of life’s insanity and uncertainty. A simple life filled with family, fun, and friends is what he loves and yet when he sees Victoria, he can’t help but wonder if he is missing something. Deep down, he knows there is more to her then her pristine and pompous exterior, and he fully intends to find out all there is to know. Victoria is intrigued by Brock’s sudden interest in her. She’s not interested in his type, and yet she can’t stop thinking about him. With nothing to lose, Victoria agrees to get to know Brock, and in the process they find something that neither was looking for. I have to admit that I even fell in love with Brock. He had such a huge heart for taking care of his brothers, and he never felt that it was a hardship. Nothing mattered more to him then making sure that his family was taken care of provided for. A simple uncomplicated life was everything he wanted, and yet he couldn’t help but feel that Victoria was a mystery and pulled him in like no other woman had. This was one mystery that he couldn’t wait to investigate, and he poured all of this enthusiasm into it. Victoria didn’t know how to respond to his gentle yet sincere interest in getting to know who she was deep down. She found that her stone walls didn’t stand a chance when Brock wielded his honesty, persistence, and heart into pursuing her. Throughout their time together, Brock was able to help Victoria see just how amazing, strong, and talented she truly was. Through his eyes, she saw herself as the woman that she always dreamed she could be, and she filled the missing piece of his heart that he never knew was empty. This is the first book that I had read Bethany Lopez, and it will not be my last. I am completely and utterly impressed by the magnitude of heart and soul that breathes through the pages of this story. The ability to create these stunning characters and watch their struggle unfold before my eyes left me breathless and in awe of her astounding talent. It was the love and friendship that enfolded and surrounded Brock, his family, and friends that pulled at my heart and left a huge hole when their story ended. I can’t wait to read more about this group of remarkable characters that feel so real and down to earth.
