Brown Sisters Series, Book 2
From the publisher:
Named one of the Best Books of the Year (so far) by Apple and Amazon.
USA Today bestselling author Talia Hibbert returns with another charming romantic comedy about a young woman who agrees to fake date her friend after a video of him “rescuing” her from their office building goes viral…
Danika Brown knows what she wants: professional success, academic renown, and an occasional roll in the hay to relieve all that career-driven tension. But romance? Been there, done that, burned the T-shirt. Romantic partners, whatever their gender, are a distraction at best and a drain at worst. So Dani asks the universe for the perfect friend-with-benefits—someone who knows the score and knows their way around the bedroom.
When big, brooding security guard Zafir Ansari rescues Dani from a workplace fire drill gone wrong, it’s an obvious sign: PhD student Dani and former rugby player Zaf are destined to sleep together. But before she can explain that fact to him, a video of the heroic rescue goes viral. Suddenly, half the internet is shipping #DrRugbae—and Zaf is begging Dani to play along. Turns out his sports charity for kids could really use the publicity. Lying to help children? Who on earth would refuse?
Dani’s plan is simple: fake a relationship in public, seduce Zaf behind the scenes. The trouble is, grumpy Zaf is secretly a hopeless romantic—and he’s determined to corrupt Dani’s stone-cold realism. Before long, he’s tackling her fears into the dirt. But the former sports star has issues of his own, and the walls around his heart are as thick as his… um, thighs.
The easy lay Dani dreamed of is now more complex than her thesis. Has her wish backfired? Is her focus being tested? Or is the universe just waiting for her to take a hint?

Let me start out by saying that I loved this book! Which makes perfect sense since I loved the first book in the series, Get a Life, Chloe Brown. The series centers around the Brown sisters, with one left to go and I can’t wait.
Dani has been hurt before and is very guarded with her heart. In fact, she is only looking for a friend with benefits, at least until she finishes her dissertation. But super hot security guard Zaf is not on board with this. He is a true romantic, but he realizes that he can’t push Dani too hard or she’ll take off. When the opportunity arises to fake a romance that will help his children’s charity, Dani is all in. Little does she know that her heart is, too.
This was a super fun read and I highly recommend it. You do not have to read the books in order, but you should definitely read them both!
