About the Book: She wants one night. He wants her forever.Hayden Summers just landed the job of a lifetime taking pictures for Time magazine, but she’s determined to leave with no regrets. The first thing on her list? Erase the memory of her cheating ex with a wild night of anonymous sex. The second? Figure out why her best friend, sexy bar owner Jace Jennings, stopped speaking to her the night she told him about the job. Jace has a problem. Hayden isn’t just leaving the country, she’s risking her life—just when he’s realized he’s in love with her. When fate traps them in the storage room of his bar together, barely contained desire simmers to surface. In one last attempt to keep her, Jace offers Hayden the one thing she wants: a night of hot sex, no strings attached. But when the night is over, will Jace be able to let her go? And will Hayden leave with her heart intact?
All I can say is: I want more!!!!
Oh, how I loved this little novella. It’s so hard for me to get hooked on a book nowadays because I read so much, but No Strings Attached had me glued to all 62 pages of its pure awesomeness. And, I was seriously smiling and laughing the whole time I was reading this. My only complaint? There wasn’t enough of it! I want more Hayden and Jace. And possibly some more Nate because dammit if I don’t love a sexy set of brothers!
I loved Jace and Hayden so much. No Strings Attached takes place in one night, where Hayden is determined to have one last night of fun before she leaves to dangerous territories to take pictures for Time magazine. She goes to a club, owned by her best friend Jace, looking for a one-night stand. The thing is, Jace has been secretly in love with her for some time now and he’s heartbroken that she’s leaving. Right from the start, their chemistry is sizzling. I love that Jace is a bit of an alpha male (my favorite) and he’s quite protective of Hayden. He’s also super sweet and was there to comfort Hayden when her ex cheated on her. This is basically a story of long-time friends who fall in love.
Because of their history, it’s easy to see and believe that they love each other. The attraction is obviously there, and I’m a sucker for a relationship that starts off as just friends. Jace is so swoonworthy and such a sweetheart. You all know how much I love dual POVs, so it was nice seeing how Jace felt about Hayden. It really increased the passion level in this book. One of the things I loved most was the book wasn’t only sexy, it was truly sweet. Jace cares deeply for Hayden and once he realizes it, he does everything in his power to make sure she knows it. That ending was so touching, adorable, and romantic. HEART!!!
No Strings Attached is easily one of my favorite novellas from Brazen, or just in general actually. I devoured it. Everything moves pretty fast, but it wasn’t rushed, which was great. Nicolette’s writing is fun and witty. Her characters are sexy, smart, and intriguing. I also loved the dialogue. Let’s face it, I loved everything about this book. Please tell me there will be a story about Nate, Jace’s super hot brother?! I need more!!!
