Brazen

Jasmine came to live at Sweetwater Ranch when she was 16. Five years later, she left to see Paris. While there she had her eyes opened to the possibility that she wouldn’t have to choose between the two men she loves but she could have them both, if she’s woman enough. Returning home with the conviction that she’ll be able to convince the two men who mean everything to her that changing their relationship will not destroy it and that it can work, she flies into TX with high hopes.
Seth and Zane are brothers. They own and run the Sweetwater Ranch. They look at Jasmine as a younger sister and have a shock when she returns home to find out that she’s all grown up. Both seem to desire her but neither are willing to act on it. The feeling is if one does, the other will be left out in the cold as neither would want to share. Can Jasmine wiggle her way into either’s bed and if she gets there will she be able to stay? Better yet, will the guys even consider sharing Jasmine?
Though Jasmine has a plan, she also has a secret that will shock both brothers.
This book differs from other books that I’ve read by Ms Banks. Most of her books have a storyline that is separate from her love story. That is not real evident in this book. While Seth and Zane finally are looking into finding the brother Jasmine hasn’t seen since well before she moved to Sweetwater Ranch, this doesn’t have much to do with most of the book. This book is a love story and revolves around the relationship between Jasmine, Seth and Zane.
The characters seem real and most of the situations that they find themselves in seem probable. Seth has a truck that is his pride and joy. When Jasmine borrows it without asking to ride into town, Seth yell, screams and threatens all kind of things if there is a scratch one it. When Jasmine goes into the local bar, the sheriff, JT and her remember when she use to try to sneak in when she was underage, only to have JT throw her out. Each characters background is slowly given in a natural way so that none of the tempo of the story is lost. When Jasmine’s secret comes out, Seth and Zane talk about how they meet her and why this secret is so shocking.
Because this is a love story, you know that it’s going to have a happy ending. Still, as Seth and Zane try to figure out what to do with Jasmine and her demands, you can understand their arguments and concerns. They guys hold out as long as they can but beware of a woman with a mission on her mind.
This story has very graphic sex scenes and may not be for everyone. If explicit sex including menge a trios offends you, this is not the book for you. And while those elements are present so are tender relationships and good friends.
