I donโ€™t do feelings.

Especially not with an arrogant, broody Taylor brother.

But one moment of weakness on an elevator wrecks me.

I curse his name.

I curse said elevator.

Yet I find myself wanting to be trapped in a small space with  Spence Taylor again.

And donโ€™t even get me started on his day job.

The man can do just about anything with those hands.

Those big hands, and erโ€”big feet.

I digress.


Emma Kingsley is the most infuriating woman Iโ€™ve ever known.

Stubborn, arrogant, and sexy as sin.

She drives me crazy.

And sheโ€™s determined to hate me.

The funny thing isโ€”I canโ€™t get enough.

But the woman has more walls up than the royal palace.

Lucky for her, I make a living tearing down walls.

And I just found my favorite project.

Time to renovate, Queenie.

The Bold and the Bullheaded: The G.D. Taylors Series by Laura Pavlov and Willow Aster

My Review

Second book in this series, itโ€™s not necessary to read the first one, itโ€™s not a cliffhanger nor is it required reading. But after this book, Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll go back and read book one.

After a few pretty dark and angsty romances, I was really for a change of pace. And both the authors Laura Pavlov and Willow Aster will lighten your mood and make you smile with this book.

Emma is best friend to Mya (MC in โ€œWanted Wed or Aliveโ€ book 1) a lawyer, a hard working woman. So what if she comes over as being abrasive and hard! If youโ€™d had a childhood like Emma, then wouldnโ€™t you be a hard nosed woman? Too scared to love, and convinced that you arenโ€™t loveable! But underneath all the prickles, is a woman who wants to be loved, who wants to be needed and cherished, but not smothered, she can fight her own battles, but maybe someone who could have her back.

Spence (Jesseโ€™s brother MC in book 1) loves his brother dearly, truly he does, but the excess baggage in the form of his brotherโ€™s girlfriendโ€™s best friend Emma Kinglsley is just too much! Her attitude, her snide comments and general manner just rubs Spence up the wrong way! Yeah, alright they shared an alcohol fuelled moment in the elevator, but come on, it wasnโ€™t that memorable! (Then why is it on repeat play in his brain?) And now whenever she sees him, itโ€™s the put down after put downs, itโ€™s pet names that arenโ€™t nice (but they are funny and plenty of them!) ๐Ÿ˜† itโ€™s fun to wind her up, but is there a fine line between hate/love? And why does he want to climb that high wall and see whatโ€™s there?

So what changed to bring about this wonderful story?

Their banter was like a long drawn out form of foreplay! You could feel the tension every time they were together. And when they do finally find inโ€ฆ. ๐Ÿ˜‰. Itโ€™s then a case of one step forward two steps back!! Emma is too cautious, she wonโ€™t let that final piece of her wall down! Spence is caring and supportive, but it frustrates him when she wonโ€™t let him help. And the final straw for both of them is when she wonโ€™t talk to him about an incident at work!

Are they really that BULLHEADED, they canโ€™t see what each other needs? Or will they be BOLD enough to take that final step?

Laughs a minute in this book, the brothers are pranksters, they will have you groaning with their cheesey comments and eye rolling at their advice for Spence. Love how the family are so close (too close sometimes) they all work together and live close to one another. Liked how they have each otherโ€™s back in a crisis. Spenceโ€™s brothers are hilarious, always trying to get one over on each other. Emmaโ€™s family are really great too (dad protective but firm) but she canโ€™t see that they all love her.

So will Emma really let Spence into her heart? Or will she keep him at arms length like she has everyone else?

And we got a glimpse at the next brother to fallโ˜บ๏ธ And I canโ€™t wait.

Highly recommended this book and the previous one too.
