REVIEW – ONE WEEK TO SCORE (Tall, Dark, and Texan, #3) by Kate Meader



A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint . . .

He’s the man she loves to hate . . .

Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. Shots lined up at the bar? Bring it. Hot stranger on the hook? Come on down. What this party does not need is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seven years ago.

She’s the woman he has to have . . .

Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger, not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task. For one week, he’ll make her honeymoon-for-one a sizzling party for two.

Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time . . .

But the taboo they’re breaking is only the beginning . . . and Flynn’s part in Liv’s wedding debacle could bring about their end.

It had been ingrained in him from year zero that Olivia Elizabeth Kane was so out of his league he’d need a seat on one of those private space rocket deals to reach her stratosphere.


For those of you who enjoy the Brazen Entangled series and love the ”romance with the older brother’s best-friend” trope, this one should hit the spot. I never read the first two books in the series and figured I could read this as a standalone, but I felt like something was missing for me. It was as if I was thrown into the middle of the story and never really got the benefit of the beginning. I would definitely advise reading the previous books. I was able to follow along but I didn’t care for how the story starts.

Olivia Kane is boozing it up at a bar and trying to pick up a handsome stranger in hopes of having a one night stand to help her forget how she was just left at the altar. Actually, her fiancé was busted having sex with one of the wedding guests, not even an hour before the ceremony was to take place. The wedding guest happens to have been the date of Flynn Cross, Olivia’s childhood crush and current bane of her existence. They grew up together since childhood but for the past seven years, Flynn had just dropped out of her life without any notice or reason.

Olivia plans to go on her honeymoon trip to Mexico and to lose herself in meaningless sex with random men. Flynn is not having any of it and proceeds to follow Olivia down to Mexico. She’s still hurting over his disappearance and puts up a good fight in the beginning, but when Flynn offers his sexual services to her, she finds it nearly impossible to resist the man who’s had her heart since she was only twelve-years-old.

Flynn has been in love with Olivia almost as long as she’s had the same feelings for him. But several things keep him from pursuing more with her. He thinks that he’s not good enough for her and would never jeopardize his friendship with her brother, Brody. His reasons for keeping his distance from Olivia after he came back from his tour in Iraq were eye-rolling inducing.

One Week to Score has the steam that you come to expect from Brazen novellas and I can’t deny that I enjoyed the schmexy. It’s low on angst and good for a filler read.
