MATCHLESS: Book Two of the Black Brothers Trilogy
NOTE: MATCHLESS IS A STANDALONE NOVEL
When her boss asks for her help on a high profile intellectual property case, the last person attorney Mila Kingston expects to walk into her office is the gorgeous stranger she had an unforgettable one night stand with on her birthday. Navy SEAL Griffin Black has been upfront since the beginning that he’s not looking for love or commitment, which is just fine with Mila, who’s focused on her career and certainly doesn’t have time for a charming playboy. However she can’t pass up the opportunity to represent Griffin and his brother in a landmark trade secret case involving a plant from the Amazon with the potential to cure cancer and the greedy woman who will stop at nothing to possess the rights to the research.
Although Mila’s determined to keep him at arm’s length, the more time she spends with Griffin, the harder it is to resist his easy going charm and his promises of forbidden pleasures. Before long, Mila is entangled with Griffin in a battle for the rights to medical research that could change the world of medicine, as well as her heart.
The Black Brothers Trilogy
Three brothers, bound by a secret that could change the world of medicine.
Three women, hired to protect the secret that someone is willing to kill for.
The last thing they expected to find was love.
PRAISE FOR MATCHLESS:
I didn't think this book could possibly be better than the first book in this series, but it was! This trilogy has definitely become instant favorites of mine.
I love when the women in these books are strong and stubborn, can take care of themselves, but yet ultimately submit to the alpha men in their lives. The results are explosive!
The plot of deceit and mystery and danger is still alive and well in this book too, and I love where the story is going. - Goodreads Review
Wow, this series just keeps getting steamier. Bush did an amazing job describing Mila and Griffin's encounters. The imagery created definitely goes down on my list of most memorable encounters. From dinner at Griffin's to the role play at the club and finely their night on the beach...wow. Can I get a fire extinguisher please. - Goodreads Review

My second read of Ms. Bush and I am in love with this series. This book takes over from where Fearless left off with Griffin getting help from a fellow Navy Seal who is now a lawyer and Mila’s boss. Mila is strong, smart, and independent. Griffith is the perfect man to push her to past her limits. While they start their relationship with the mutual understanding that it will be temporary, the heart doesn’t always play by the rules. The passion between Griffin and Mila is mad chemistry and had me putting Griffin at the top of my book boyfriend list! Like Beckett, Griffin is a dominant. But Griffin likes his sex with a little more kink. Oh you are about to have your wildest fantasies come true. Griffin is very creative, in oh the most delightful ways. He is there to make all of Mila’s erotic dreams come true! And if the cancer drug story wasn’t retold from the first book so much and slightly unbelievable, I would have liked the book so much more. I know she was trying to add more to the book beside the WONDERFUL HOT AND STEAMY sex scenes, but I lost interest and ended up skimming through those parts. So again I give this book 5 stars on the hotness ranking and 3 stars on the rest of the story. I cannot wait to read Drakes story!
In my experience, some of the books that contain BDSM seem to have a lackluster plot. This is so not the case with Matchless by Brynley Bush. The author gracefully combines romance, BDSM, intrigue and suspense into this well-written story. The book blurb caught my attention and Ms. Bush's words kept me engaged from beginning to end. The result of the first few chapters is predictable, but in a very satisfying way. Mila Kingston is a smart and beautiful attorney who spends most of her free time working. On her 30th birthday, her friends take her out for a good time and she ends up going home with a very dominant and handsome Navy SEAL, Griffin Black. Their hook-up is amazing, as both of them really need a night of ultimate pleasure. Surprise, on the next business day, Griffin is Mila's new client. Griffin's father and brother are physicians, and they believe Griffin survived childhood leukemia by eating the seeds of a plant native to the Amazon. Now it is Mila's job to prove that the seeds used remain within the Black family until their research is proven. As a result, Mila and Griffin's relationship evolves both professionally and personally, which leads to a future that neither of them ever dreamed possible. I really enjoyed this book. To begin with, all the characters were interesting and I fell in love with each and every one of them. Secondly, the love scenes were beyond scorching, yet totally full of love and tenderness. Griffin's virile and sweet manner left me panting. Lastly, although Mila's best friend Olivia plays a small role, she is a real trip. Overall, this is a thought-provoking, emotionally charged book with a great cast of characters and a creative plot. I immediately connected with Mila and Griffin, and there was never a moment that I did not want them extend their one night stand into a lifetime of happiness. This is the second book from the Black Brothers Trilogy and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Book one, Fearless, is now on my TBR list. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
This is the book focused on the other Black brother, Griffin and attorney Mila. Griffin … he’s met his match with Mila. She’s feisty and very strong willed. They are the perfect couple. She’s confident within herself and knows there is something about Griffin that she’s attracted too even though he makes it very clear about commitment. That works out fine for Mila, she’s focusing on her career and just likes a bit of fun on the side. That is till they start to develop strong feelings for each other. Griffin is a great character he’s just as dominating and domineering as Beckett. I really liked how there were two themes running through this book. Their relationship and a continuation to protect all the research and information about a natural drug that could revolutionise the cure for cancer from falling into the wrong hands. One thing from these books that I’ve really enjoyed is how strong the women are. Sure they have their weaknesses but they are strong willed and that’s why they are suited to the Black brothers. The sex scenes are delicious and worth the hot tub scene alone! I really enjoyed the exciting developments from Beckett and Emmaline’s relationship from book one. Lots of questions you might have from Fearless are also answered. I love the witty banter between them and I love the growing trust that Griffin has with Mila and vice versa. Fast paced, lots of twist and turns and a great sense of drama. There is a scene where we meet Griffin’s younger brother Drake and holy hell. Make sure you have some privacy when you read that scene! This series just gets better and stronger. Really looking forward to the next book. I was kindly provided with a free copy of this book from the author to provide an honest review.

4.5 "I'd like dinner with Griffin" Stars Wow, this series just keeps getting steamier. This is the second book in The Black Brother's Trilogy. We get to learn more about Griffin who we got glimpses of in the first book. Let me be clear, for complete reading pleasure these books should be read in order. While the books do not have cliffhanger endings there is a secondary story intertwined with the love story and it would be best understood read in order. Mila is needing to celebrate her birthday and stepping out of her comfort zone she is on the lookout for a body tingling mind numbing good time. The sexy guy at the corner of the bar certainly is an excellent candidate and Mila has an amazing birthday. But back to real life, she leaves the man who sated every desire without a goodbye. Imagine her shock when she meets her new client the following week and it is none other than Griffin, her birthday fling. The chemistry of this couple is palpable during the entire book and it is off the charts hot. Despite being able to offer her any future Griffin can't help but wanting to spend more time with Mila and as much as she protests, she can't get Griffin off her mind. Bush did an amazing job describing Mila and Griffin's encounters. The imagery created definitely goes down on my list of most memorable encounters. From dinner at Griffin's to the role play at the club and finely their night on the beach...wow. Can I get a fire extinguisher please. Now I have to admit that even though that final beach scene had to be one of the hotter encounters I have read I truly don't know how I feel about it. It just seemed wrong and almost too close for comfort. Trust me, you need to read this to understand what I'm talking about. This along with the fact that Griffin knows he will need to leave really bothered me. How could that have been the last encounter he wanted to leave her with...ugh. Despite this, I truly loved Griffin's character. Now as I mentioned before there is the continuation of the story involving Griffin's dad, his brother Beckett, and we certainly can't forget Camille even though we would really like to. I feel rather then overwhelming me like this story angle did in the first book, it actually added a lot of depth to the story this time around. I am certain this story will continue in to Drake's book. And after getting more of Drake in this book I cannot wait to get to know Beckett and Griffin's little brother better. Thanks to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review
