Book Review: The Brazen (Calamity Montana #3) by Willa Nash

I couldn't wait for The Brazen to hit my Kindle. When it landed, I ignored everything and devoured it. Kerrigan and Pierce's story was phenomenal and an excellent addition to the series.

The Brazen (Calamity Montana #3) by Willa Nash

Kerrigan Hale’s personal life is about as exciting as a bucket of tar. With hard work and hustle as her steadfast companions, who needs romance or adventure? Her empire in Calamity, Montana, isn’t going to build itself.

For years, her mentor—and investor—helped make her dreams come true. Until his unexpected death put her fate in his grandson’s hands. A brazen billionaire, he seems intent on ruining Kerrigan’s life.

But if Pierce Sullivan thinks she’ll go down without a fight, he’s sorely mistaken. Pushed to the extreme, she drives to his ritzy mountain lodge to force the arrogant You Can Call Me Mr. Sullivan to hear her out.

No sooner does she arrive than a snowstorm traps her with Pierce. Stranded together for days, she’s in for the battle of her life. Pierce is nearly irresistible by candlelight. Without his suits and fancy cars, he’s almost human.

Except only a fool would let down her guard. And Kerrigan can’t risk her future. Not when she doesn’t know if he’s out to pilfer her dreams . . . or to steal her heart.

5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely loved The Brazen. I swear every new couple and book I read in the Calamity Montana series becomes an instant favorite. Kerrigan and Pierce were the best. I loved their ups and downs and couldn't wait to find out all of Pierce's secrets. I felt so pulled in, ignored everything around me, and devoured this. I loved it!

I loved Kerrigan and Peirce. She was a strong, determined woman who fought for what she believed in and worked hard to make something of herself. I liked learning her history and where she was at in life, it was touching and emotional. I enjoyed learning Pierce’s history too and the building hints of what he was holding back. In the beginning, there was so much animosity between these two, they had fiery banter and great verbal sparring. I loved them being stuck together in close proximity and how they softened to one other, opened up, and shared. I love their guards coming down in the midst of trying to fight an undeniable attraction. I thought their chemistry was off the charts and they had an amazing pull to one another.

There was a great cast of characters involved. I liked learning about Kerrigan’s family and their dynamic, and the drama that came along with it. There was so much tension involved but I loved the build to them working it out. I loved Pierce's assistant Nelly and liked meeting his friend Cal. These two are like fire and ice so I am excited for their story in The Bully. I loved seeing how other characters from the series were woven in as well.

This was a detailed, well thought out story with picturesque descriptions. There was a wonderful balance between the drama, emotion, and heat. I loved that this story didn’t reveal its secrets all at once and that it had me guessing, I couldn’t wait to find out everything. It made for the best build! It was so sweet, heartfelt, and precious and I love how it played into the story. There was a wonderful epilogue that totally choked me up as well. I loved seeing where everyone was at and how loose ends were tied up.

This was a fantastic story and an excellent addition to the series. The Brazen was sweet and sexy and made me melt. An exceptional read!
