Three years ago, my perfect life ended. I got trapped inside a burning Army MRAP and watched my friends die. I was the only one to survive, if you can call this survival.
Now I’m the beast of nightmares. Horrific scars mean I don’t leave my house…ever.
But my best friend made sure I continued to live when all I wanted was to give up. I owe him everything, and now he needs me for two weeks.
Two weeks with strangers who I’ll never have to see again. I can do this. I can ignore the stares and revulsion.
But what I can’t ignore is the stunning beauty next door who sees past my scars.
She’s Hollywood royalty. I’m a recluse, a hermit. Her life is glamour and paparazzi. My life is NOT. No matter how much I want her, I’m no good for her.
Beauty and the beast was a romantic fairy tale, but this is real life and she deserves better…
This is the final installment to the Naked Brews trilogy.
1. Deliciously Smooth
2. Deliciously Thick
3. Deliciously Bitter
(and don’t miss our free prequel novella, Desperately Unprepared, available via the KB Jacobs newsletter)
The Naked Brews series is a well done, well developed, amazingly written, series featuring a host of characters intertwined with each other. Lots of friends, lovers, relationships, and suspense create the perfect stories to pass the time. Deliciously Bitter is the third, and last, book in this series and it is gut wrenching, sweet, sexy, and all around fantastic!
Lake and Melissa’s friend, Alex, is the heroine in this story and I loved learning about her and what made her tick. Damien, a vet who lost his friends in combat and carries the scars of the accident both inside and out, was brought out of his shell by the elusive Alex. Neither of them was looking for love and they both were afraid of where things would lead, but neither one of them could fight the attraction they had for one another. I found it sweet and endearing (as well as HOT and sexy) the way these two interacted with each other!
Yes, I think you need to start with the first book in the series, but Deliciously Bitter works as a stand-alone and is a fantastic read! I HIGHLY recommend adding it to your To Be Read pile for the summer!
