Wham, bam, thank you ma'am? That's my motto.

There's no room in my life for anything more complicated than a one-night stand. I'm a bodyguard. It's easier to put my life on the line when there's no one worrying if I'll make it home for dinner.

But then the one woman who made me want more waltzes back into my life needing my protection.

Despite our explosive chemistry, we can't go there again. What happened in Vegas, has to stay in Vegas.

Except the marriage vows neither of us remember.

The Brazen Duet will conclude with Still Brazen on 2/26

This is a second chance story about Oskar and Hailey. Oskar's company is hired to protect Hailey and they meet again. The tension between these two was interesting to read. Oskar and Hailey are wonderful together and the chemistry is steaming. This is an exciting, interesting and fun read. I really enjoyed.

Another great story by the Malone sisters! This series (in duet sets) from the men of Blake Security is just excellent. Every one of them is unique and fun with just enough mystery and intensity to keep you guessing. I have enjoyed my time reading these books and can't wait to read the next one for this duet.

Soooo close to a five star I could taste the next installment. . . . Brazen strikes a cord with all those of us that have followed the ins and outs and intricate tales for the characters built by these Malone's. We get reads that take us on an adventure. This time was no exception. We go on an exceptional ride with Oskar and Hailey. There was one heck of a Vegas tale wrapped around these two individuals. Watching it all unfold was just the beginning. Getting a deeper look at these two apart and together was what made this all so Brazen. Cliffhanger yes, but what do you expect when these two come together. Part one was the cake. Part two will give us all the icing we could every want. Fab characters, setting, writing, and more

4.5!!!! HOLY SMOKES!! It is finally Oskar's turn!!! WOOHOO!!! I have been waiting for Oskar's story since I was first introduced to him in the very first book of the Blake Security series. Oskar Mueller, the woman-loving, crazy, funny, jokester of the group, aka The German, The Viking, The Big Guy, The guy who knocks all the woman over when he smiles!! In Brazen, Oskar is assigned to protect Hailey, the heir apparent to her family's perfume empire, who also is intent on making everyone realize that she is worthy of her family's business. However, the real shocker is on the two of them of them, because neither one realizes that they have actually already met and that each one has not been able to forget the other after that initial meeting. Boy, oh boy, do the sparks fly once these two meet again. Yes, all of the gang is back to help solve yet another mystery. Brazen is a truly great read with a cliffhanger of an ending that will stop your heart. OMG!!! Nana Malone and M. Malone are two powerhouse authors in her own right, but together these two are beyond amazing!!! I just have to say thank you to Nana Malone and M. Malone for taking us readers back into the world of Blake Security. I have truly been missing these guys. I cannot wait for this mystery to be solved in Still Brazen!!

Finally... Viking Time! The Malones are driving my CRAZY! They continue to draw me in and make me happy, mad, and then frustrated and anxious! Don't be surprised when you are yelling at the end of this book... It is a duet, so a cliffhanger is coming. Oskar has been a favorite in the series since Book 1 of the Blake Security books. He has that stubborn & snarky charm that makes you really want to seem him brought down to his knees by a strong woman! Hailey Livingston plays a huge part in her family's perfume company. Hailey's life is threatened and her father decides to call i n a security team. This team includes someone that has been on Hailey's mind, and she was surprised to see him. Oskar has been a mystery throughout the many books of the series. He has been the Viking that you dream about. So when the Viking is faced with the one woman that he has ever wanted a future with, he has to admit it to his friends and himself! I can't wait for the conclusion of Oskar and Hailey's tale. Oskar has met his match and the perfect match to equal his passion! Is it February yet???

I have said it before, I hate cliffhangers, but Malone Squared pulls me in EVERY time. I love revisiting the Blake Security family. This new adventure is with Oskar and Hailey. I love that the female leads are strong, independent, sassy women. Their men are strong, tough, dangerous, protective, and oh so sexy. I read this book in one sitting. It was fast paced, action filled, funny, witty, with a touch of sarcasm, had plenty of surprises, and a bit of mystery. This was definitely an enjoyable read. The cliffhanger left me in shock on different levels. I can't wait for the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

I’ve been waiting for Oskar’s story. I was so excited when I found out we were finally going to get it. This author duo did an excellent job. There are many layers to Oskar and all of them are wonderful. He’s an alpha male with lots of swagger. His witty, protective and most definitely has a big heart. Hailey is a woman form Oskar’s past that he never stopped thinking about. Unfortunate circumstances bring them back together. Oskar and Hailey have great chemistry. I loved the banter between the two. Their story had me continuously laughing out loud. It was beautiful story and perfect beginning for the two. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Totally Brazen... What happens when an adorable BAD boy meets a young innocent girl in Vegas.... Well some say that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas or at least Oscar hopes this is true. Now one of the good guys, Oscar is still very much a bad boy deep inside and that prevents him from getting close to anyone, keeping people away is the best way to protect them. But what happen in Vegas will always hunt him, making him wonder if he let true love slip away. Hailey has it all and is next in line to take over the family business, but she feels very lonely and no one has been able to fill the void left by her weekend fling in Vegas. When Hailey's life is threaten her father decides she needs special protection hiring the best he could find, Blake Security. Oscar and Hailey are thrown back together and what happened many years ago in Vegas will not longer be part of their past. Oscar will do anything to keep Hailey safe no matter the cost for him, but soon he will find that the best thing for both is not be apart. Oscar and Hailey's story is filled with passion, romance, inexplicable secrets, unexpected surprises, and an end that will take your breath away. Malone square have done it again with this amazing story that brings us back into the world of Blake security and all their lethal but adorable guys.

Hailey is focused on her position as heir to a major player in the perfume industry. She is creating a scent to honor her mother and isn’t about to be distracted from her goal. When she receives threats, her father isn’t about to let it slide and hires Blake Security to protect her. Oskar is part of the Blake Security team and he has been tasked with protecting Hailey. Things become complicated when Hailey turns out to be a previous one night stand that he left sleeping in bed when he took off the next morning without a goodbye or any further contact. Although Hailey is hurt by his betrayal, she can’t deny that the chemistry between them is stronger than ever. As the danger around them escalates so do the questions and when all is said and done will Oskar be able to keep her safe? Suspense, humorous banter and hot chemistry all lead up to a cliff hanger that leaves you wanting more. I need more of Hailey , Oskar and Blake Security so the second part of the duet can’t come soon enough.

Holy macaroni and cheese. What an ending!!!! And what about all of the family secrets? I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment of Blake Security. And I look like a fish out of water gaping at all of these secrets that are going to be explosive when they are revealed.

Oskar is swoonworthy! It's taken me a while to get used to reading duets. You get so wrapped up in the first story, it's hard to wait for the conclusion. And I can't wait for the conclusion to this one. This can be read without reading the others in the series, but the characters are more complete if you have. It's fun to see them all interact. Hailey is a very strong independent lead. It's interesting to see her own insecurities when she is so capable. Oskar is swoonworthy! I loved his humor in previous books and enjoyed him as the lead in this story. I'm looking forward to learning more about his past in the second half of the duet. He and Hailey have a past. Even more than they both remember! There were a number of twists in the story that I look forward to untwisting in the second half. Another winner! I received an advance copy for an honest review.

The boys from Blake Security are back, and better than ever! This time, it's Oskar's turn as you know he's not gong down easy!!! I've lived this whole series, and even though Matthias is still my favorite, Oskar is a close third. This story had me on the edge of my seat, hanging on for the ride, and I am totally looking forward to their conclusion, because Malone Squared always delivers! Please note that I did receive an ARC of this book, and the opinions expressed in this review are my own.

Oh my gosh! Oskor! I am so happy to see him cut cut off at the knees by a woman! It is almost funny to see him running scared. Mister affable full of jokes. Now the jokes are at his expense and completely hilarious. Seriously though, this is fast paced, packed full of suspense, comedy gold, and of course the best sex scenes. But never fear the cliff hanger is real! You know it's coming, yet It still sneaks up on you when you least expect it. And BAM! You're staring at the last page like, what just happened?! Must read! Highly recommend!

Brazen by Nana Malone and M Malone a five-star read that will protect you. This is the first part of the Brazen duet and I cannot wait for the second part!! What to say without getting spoilers, this is a compelling story and the chemistry is like liquid napalm, I was surprised my eyes didn’t melt it was so hot in places. There is action and drama a plenty, things happen, and you really don’t know who dunnit until you do, and your heart will be in your mouth at times, throw in a weekend in Vegas that needs to stay there, and you have a great story. The next instalment Still Brazen can’t come soon enough.

Finally, Oskar gets his HEA! I've been in love with Oskar almost from the start. He's adorably arrogant, hilariously alpha, full of Viking swagger with a deep-seated need to be treasured for who he is, not what he does. Finding out that he's got his heart on the line with Hailey - and that it's been that way for years - was simply priceless. This is a beautiful story, one that I never would've guessed but it works perfectly for him. Hailey wasn't exactly nursing a broken heart after her Vegas trip, but she wasn't moving on, either. She busied herself with crafting the perfect signature scent in honor of her mother, but as she gets closer to completing this project, the threats against her start to grow and it's clear she needs a bodyguard. Just please, any bodyguard but the irritatingly sexy man from her past! These two are opposites who attract like fire and gasoline. There's no way they can resist each other, and when the truth comes out, all bets are off. There's more humor in this book than in the other Blake Security stories. Actual laugh-out-loud, stop-to-explain-to-the-hubby moments include the revelation in the conference room where Oskar sees himself on the big screen, Hailey's best friend Priya, any scene involving J.J., and Hailey's mother's reaction to the protection detail! As the first in a duet, we knew going in that there's a cliffhanger, and it's a doozy. I wouldn't miss the conclusion for the world. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

I love this book. The Malone Duo has done it again. This is Oskar and Hailey. They first met in Las Vegas and their attraction was so strong the spent the whole weekend wrapped up in each other. But Oskar was worried about his past coming back to hurt her so he left. Fast forward a few years now Hailey's life is in danger and some is trying to hurt her. Her father hires Blake Security and Oskar and Hailey come face to face after his disappearance. She's not happy to see him but her body remembers him and their attraction comes back full force. This book is full of action, has lots of secrets, mystery and suspense and twist and turns that keep you reading. I love the hot men of Blake Security. I love the new character Tyse. It was so many times I found myself laughing and smiling. Man you better watch out for sexy time with Oskar and Hailey, they burn up the sheets. But smh the cliffhanger I'm on the edge of my seat. I just really want to know what happens. I know someone is about to be really hurt. Sad face. Just so you know that what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas!!!!

Oskar & Hailey have a history. One filled with explosive chemistry and sexy reminders. He takes one whiff of the perfume she wears and it all comes back. Now the million dollar question is, can her help her? Hailey is in danger. Her father insists she gets help. She knows something is off, but cannot prove what it is. There is so much to do and so little time. Can she fit Oskar back into her life now? This story was just an entertaining little piece. I had to absorb every page and eagerly turned each one. Plenty of surprises in store, this book has a fast pace and plenty of characters to keep you hoppin as the reader. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

The Malones turn a handful of sinful into a Brazen experience. Hailey and Oskar are something to talk about. She's as feisty as he is fearless and despite the risk, he lightens up the danger with a wicked sense of humor. Brazen takes a walk on the wild side with a few blasts from the past. Malone squared sprinkles in a few familiar faces and more than a little danger. Brazen caught me hook, line and sinker.
