Falling in love is the easy part, staying that's the biggest challenge of all.

Everything is finally working out for Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard. They're in love and running B-Squad Security and Investigations. They've planned the perfect operation to take down the dangerous drug kingpin who's kidnapped one of Bianca's best friends. Then Taz's wife--who was supposed to be his ex-wife--shows up on the eve of the big rescue mission and threatens to blow up his and Bianca's happily ever after.

The last thing Bianca wants after the revelation that Taz might still be married is to have to spend time with her former live-in boyfriend who never told her he'd ever been married in the first place. But it's too late to change plans. To save her friend, she has to swallow her hurt and go undercover with Taz as a newlywed couple at an exclusive resort. The only thing Taz wants is Bianca and he's willing to do whatever it takes to win her back. But when it's his life on the line, will it be too late for him to show her that his past is over and she's the only woman for his future...

Brazen is a stand alone novel and the first full novel in the B-Squad series. However, if you want to find out how Taz and Bianca met, check out Bulletproof, a novella set in Liliana Hart's MacKenzie Security world.

Brazen: B-Squad Book One 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 13 reviews.

Brazen was action packed and sets up a storyline for future novels from Flynn. The B-Squad are fierce fighting women who bonded together thanks to a crappy childhood. They unite with a group of Romany men who were of a similar background. Taz & Bianca fell in love hard and fast, so there are bound to be so doubts - but some things are just meant to be! Action packed and steamy, it's an enjoyable read! Brazen can be read standalone, but I really believe you should read Bulletproof first, just to get more of the story.

Bianca Sutherland, along with 4 friends and 5 former bad boys, formed B-Squad Security and Investigations. They’re looking for Gidget Harms, the fifth member of the B-Squad, and a former school friend of Bianca’s, back from the old days of their reform school for rich girls, Bernadette’s Academy for Young Ladies. Gidget was kidnapped with drug lords, who have developed a very dangerous drug: Genie’s Wish, a hallucinogenic drug; when the users take it long enough, their minds can be controlled. The Russian mob seems to be involved, and a certain Yasmin Romanow is out to get Bianca, whom she holds responsible for the death of Yasmin’s father. Bianca and her boyfriend of six months Taz Hazard will be going undercover as newlyweds to investigate further: they’ve had a tip that they might be able to find what they’re after at Indulgence Resort, near Hawaii. Taz is no big talker, but there was one secret he did not mention which just exploded in his face, and Bianca sees red! And this not-so-little omission leads to many more problems. Avery Flynn’s writing has never been more colourful, and BRAZEN is extremely fast speed. We get to know more about everyone involved in the B-Squad, their backstories as well as who they are now. There is a lot of funny banter, and you will never think of hot wax or manscaping the same way again! BRAZEN is fast-paced, snarky, sexy, and a lot of fun! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

An exciting and wickedly sexy romantic thriller! Beauty, brains and a brazen attitude, she was everything he'd never realized he was looking for until he'd found her. BRAZEN is an exciting and ultra sexy romance featuring the private security team which formed in the MacKenzie World novella, BULLET PROOF. Taz Hazard's and Bianca Sutherland's story is first up in this series' debut; They fell in love in BULLET PROOF, but rough waters are in store for the couple as Taz's ex-wife arrives on the scene just in time to blow-up Taz's and Bianca's happily-ever-after with the news that she and Taz were never divorced and, in the process, throw a super snag into a time-critical team mission. Bianca is understandably upset since Taz had never mentioned to her that he had been married and, even more grievous, that he still had a wife. The team's mission is personal and very important to Bianca as they are in pursuit of a lead to finding Gidget, her kidnapped friend, and the terrorists holding Gidget. Adding further complications, the feds are also involved because the same terrorists have developed a dangerous mind-controlling drug, Genie's Wish, which, if publicly released, would have serious, mind-boggling consequences for the world. The team's plans require that Taz and Bianca work closely together posing as newlyweds. There's no time to replace Taz with someone else, but it is questionable if Taz and Bianca can still work together at all. If you have not read BULLET PROOF, know that Avery fills in the basics of what you will need to know about the couple's history in BRAZEN. That said, I'm glad I read BULLET PROOF first as I developed an affinity with the couple there and Avery couldn't include every wicked thing from their past! (AND there are some very wicked things!) BULLET PROOF is a very entertaining quick read - so, if you have the time, you may want to dive into it first, so you don't miss a minute of Taz's and Bianca's beginnings. The angst and tension through-out the book mandated that this book be read in one sitting and Avery's storytelling skills have left me excited to read the next books in this series. Luckily, two more installments are scheduled to be released this year! Next up is BANG coming summer 2016. BANG will be Taz's ex-wife's story and how she tangles and gets naughty with freelance investigator Camacho. Then, get ready for Marko's story, BOLD, in late 2016. I would recommend this series to fans of steamy romantic suspense!!! 3 1/2 Wine Glasses!

4.5 Stars: Brazen is Book 1 in the B-Squad series and I loved it. The characters were great and their interaction with each other and the storyline were both well written. I can’t wait to read more of this series. Bianca and Taz along with the rest of the B-Squad are on the move to save Bianca’s friend, Gidget. But just as everything is going right it will all start to unravel when Taz’s past comes knocking. Can Bianca and Taz still work together with the B-Squad to bring Gidget home safely and what will become of the two of them when the truth is revealed.

Brazen by Avery Flynn is an exhilarating and sexy romance that had me engaged from start to finish. This is the follow up from Flynn's Bulletproof where we first met Taz and Bianca but it can be read as a standalone. Taz, Bianca and the rest of their team are working against the clock to find and rescue a fellow B-Squad team member. This well crafted story is intriguing, and fast paced with several plot twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Taz and Bianca are kindred spirits. They are both strong and competitive contributing to their very passionate relationship. Their chemistry is off the charts and their steamy scenes are some of the hottest I've read. The rest of the Squad were fun and interesting and I look forward to reading more about them.

The second B-Squad book begins a little bit after Bullet Proof: A MacKenzie Family Novella (MacKenzie World, #2) ends--the squad has been established, and is hard at work trying to find its last member (Gidget) and keep the drug Bianca and Taz were exposed to in the last book off the streets. Bianca and Taz are living together, and everything seems to be going along swimmingly until Bianca is blindsided by the ex (or is she?) wife she didn't know Taz even had. How well does she really know him? Is their relationship based on nothing more than lust and sex? (Speaking of sex, there's an awful lot of it in this one. Some of it in public...) So yeah, the pressure's on. I liked the beginning and end of the book the best--their time on the island seemed to veer away from the mission somewhat (and raised some questions--like if Bianca needs Elisa to give her "ten pounds" of contouring as a part of her disguise, what would she have done on day two, when she wakes up contour-free and Elisa's not there to fix her up again? Or if she just smudged it on the beach?) The next book in the series (Bang) is nicely set up, and the book after that (Bold) is hinted at (poor Marco's mom!) and my interest in them is sufficiently piqued to make me keep an eye on Goodreads to see when I can add them to my TBR. Though you could definitely read this one without having read Bullet Proof: A MacKenzie Family Novella (MacKenzie World, #2) . the introductory novella does a good job of introducing the characters and the situation they find themselves in here and can answer a few questions for you. Rating: 3 stars / C I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

3.5 Stars This was a fast-paced read with a few twists and turns that had me reading this story in one sitting. I just love stories with a strong heroine, and Avery Flynn gives us not just one, but a whole B-Squad full of strong heroines which makes me one happy reader! I really love how Bianca and all the women of the B-Squad can hold their own. They are a strong group of very diverse women who have each other’s back and complement each other with their skill sets. Their shared history has forged a bond between them that run deeps and there is no doubt that they will do whatever it takes to protect each other. So it’s no surprise that when Bianca comes face to face with Taz’s past – in the form of his wife…or maybe ex-wife depending on if she filed the divorce papers or not – that her girls are ready, willing, and able to help Bianca through her hurt and pain. The story itself is a bit edgy – between the strain between Bianca and Taz because of his “wife” showing up and the team’s desperation to not only save their friend Gidget but also stop the distribution of a very dangerous drug, you could feel the tension throughout the entire book. One thing that did bother me about the story was having Taz’s wife/ex-wife’s tag along on the mission they went on to save Gidget/stop the drug distribution. Seemed odd that they would just bring her along when she has no experience/training, and then when they allow her to get involved in their mission it just seemed a bit out of place. Overall, this was a solid start to what looks like a fun series filled with some sassy-mouthed, strong heroines! I’m looking forward to see what’s up next for the B-Squad. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Another winner by Avery Flynn. We met Taz and Bianca in Bullet Proof and now we get to see where their story leads. Things getting pretty steamy with these two. Fan yourself steamy. This book just sucks you in that you don't come up for air until you're done with the story. I so love all the characters in this book and I honestly can't wait for more from the B-Squad. Bianca is thrown for a loop when the truth about Taz comes out. Now her world is rocked to it's core. Can their relationship make it or is it over before it begins? I was not a fan of Tamara, but she's going to surprise you. If you're looking for a action packed, suspense filled, passionate grab you book look no further. Trust me after reading this you're going to already hooked on this series.

Readers were first introduced to Bianca Sutherland and Taz Hazard in Bullet Proof, which is part of the MacKenzie Family Novella series. In Brazen, the action picks up where I’m presuming Bullet Proof ended. The best part is if you haven’t read Bullet Proof you can still follow along. Bianca and her girlfriends who make up the B-Squad are on the hunt for a drug kingpin who has kidnapped one of their best friends. Gidget’s kidnapping also ties into the DEA’s search for a powerful hallucinogen known as Genie’s Wish. With the help of her new boyfriend, Taz, a retired boxer and his Romany brothers in arms the group travels the country in search of both. Bianca and Taz each had less than desirable childhoods growing up, but for different reasons. They’ve been together for six months and are already living together, but they don’t really know each other. Their relationship is one of intense passion without a lot of verbal communication. Their latest mission will put their lives on the line as well as their hearts. It’s been awhile since I’ve read an Avery Flynn book. I forgot how she manages to slowly ramp up the action until you’ve lost yourself to the book and nothing else matters. Prepare yourself for a story of friendship, passion, a little suspense, and surprises. **Personal Purchase**

Great read Brazen by Avery Flynn was fun, sexy and absolutely wonderful. Bianca and Taz have been dating for 6 months and they are also part of the b squad with their friends and "brothers" that is an undercover investigation ring. They are trying to find a friend of Bianca's and also to help the DEA with a new drug. But there is a surprise when a secret from their past comes out. Can they all work together and find the answers they need. This is another great read of Avery Flynn's.

Private Security organizations seem to be the darling of the literary world these days. They give the author an opportunity to explore all the drama and excitement of a police or military special ops story with only a fraction of the limitations imposed by organizational rules and regulations. Brazen is one of those stories. Bianca Sutherland, an undiciplined and unconventional member of the famed Sutherland clan owes a lot to her private school friends. They were birds of a feather, rich girls who were sent off to a private school when they became too wild for their privileged families to be bothered with. Their St. Barts days are long passed bit Bianca has managed to keep the gang together and now they work with her and her partner Taz in their B-Squad security company. Retired prize fighter, Taz Hazard grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in a gypsy community where family and tribe loyalty meant everything. Now, with his "brothers", together with the love of his life and her "B"s, they investigate things and people in ways the police can't. For Tax and Bianca, life's pretty good until one of the Bs goes missing and Taz's x wife shows up, and then things get messy and very, very personal. Brazen may be part of a familiar and well worn convention, but nothing Avery Flynn writes is ever conventional. The setting is exotic (in this case a high end, clothing optional tropical island resort), the enemy a maniacal developer of designer drugs with a personal grudge to settle and the security staff and toys are way beyond those available to the security company running out of makeshift office in your local industrial park, but the story is well crafted and full of scenes that are definitely not meant for your 12 year old neice. Brazen is Hot, Hot, Hot, and I can't wait to see the next installment in the B-Squad saga.

B-Squad has plenty of people to have romances and first up is the story of Taz and Bianca who have been in a relationship for about six months. Both on the team and on the hunt for a kidnapped friend of Bianca’s they are getting ready to go undercover when Tamara shows up claiming that she is still married to Taz. Things are rocky for Bianca and Taz for a bit but they still go undercover where there is action aplenty. Will they find Gidget in time? Will they be able to get her out safely? Will they catch the bad guys? This was a quick, easy to read, steamy action-packed story that is a good beginning to Ms Flynn’s new B-Squad series. I look forward to reading Tamara’s story – second book in the series. Thank you to NetGalley and Barclay Publishing for the copy of this book to read in exchange for my honest review.
