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 brooding security guard Zafir Ansari rescues Dani from a workplace fire drill gone wrong, it’s an obvious sign: PhD student Dani and ex-rugby player Zaf are destined to sleep together. But before she can explain that fact, a video of the heroic rescue goes viral. Now 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’s 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.
Suddenly, the easy lay Dani dreamed of is 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?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
In 2019 the first book in a new series by Talia Hibbert was released. After some trusted friends told me I needed to read it, I picked up a copy of Get a Life, Chloe Brown, and I fell in love with the Brown sisters as soon as I met them. They are all so different and have different personality quirks so I was excited when I heard the next book was Dani’s book. And I have to tell you, Take a Hint, Dani Brown was so much more than I expected. It was truly and amazing book.
Take a Hint, Dani Brown is about middle Brown sister, Dani. Dani has a one track mind, and that track is her career. She has been completely focused on getting her PhD and furthering herself. But when she is caught in a compromising position with security guard and friend Zafir and people mistake them as a couple, Dani’s priorities slightly shift. Zafir could use her help. If they pretend to be a couple for a little while his business can get some of the exposure it needs. And if their fake coupledom comes with some benefits who are they to deny that? But what starts out as a fake relationship quickly becomes something more, something that causes both of these flawed characters to let their walls down. But is Dani to let those walls down or will Zafir be like everyone else and disappoint her?
There was something I simply adored about Take a Hint, Dani Brown. I don’t know it is was Dani or Zafir or Dani and Zafir combined but the whole book just worked for me and had a magical romance feel. Dani and Zaf had the kind of relationship I love to read in a romance. They pushed each other and complimented each other at the same time. They were both hiding behind walls of their past for different reasons but they were also their to support one another when they were willing to break down those walls. Did I want to shake Dani a few times? Definitely, but I also understood she was just scared to not be enough and no one would make her understand that unless she was ready.
It is really hard to explain what I loved about Take a Hint, Dani Brown. While I enjoyed Get a Life, Chloe Brown, Dani’s story was something I truly just loved. Everything just worked in this story for me and I think it will work for you. I highly recommend adding this book, this series to your TBR. You won’t be sorry once you meet the Brown sisters and their love interests.
