I love books with a lot of drama!


4 stars


Nurse Leila Matthews has seen it all, or so she thought until this morning. Into the chaos of her trauma ward walked a man more intense than anything she has ever known. His smile tore away all her defenses, and his kiss ignited flames damped for far too long—and a knowledge that such dangerous ripples are only the beginning.

Brody Davis is anything but safe. Wealthy, handsome, and unrepentantly single, the billionaire’s first priority is himself…and the pleasure of every woman he’s sure to leave. Yet his best friend’s baby sister is temptation itself. If any female could make him stay, it would be Leila, whose sweet lips and sweeter flesh push him to be better than he believes he can. He desires a quick conquest. The battle for Leila’s heart is yet to be fought. And he is not the only combatant.

Pushed was definitely a good read. A little tragedy/drama, a little fun, and a lot of hot male. Brody is many females perfect man. Successful, sharp dresser, and knows how to “take care” of his women. Leila and Brody meet at an untimely and difficult circumstance, but that doesn’t stop Brody from caring about her. He sweeps in at the right time and is the shoulder she needs. Their relationship moved a bit faster than I had expected it to at first, considering the heartbreaking circumstances, but it didn’t ruin the book for me. I took at as the typical time is precious and sometimes you just know when someone is something special.

Brody is my dream of a fictional man. A little arrogant and cocky, but he has a fierce protectiveness over Leila that any woman would completely swoon over. Sure he was the stereotypical man-whore, but just like all good men, deep down he just needed the right girl.

Leila is a trauma RN and would have never expected her brother to be brought in, despite him working for the SWAT team. That night will be one of terror, fear, and worry. Enter Brody, long-time friend of her brother. He comes just at the right time to take care of her and help her deal with her unruly brother throughout his hospital stay.

Jealous “exes” and some surprising news will lead them a bit astray towards the end of the book. Not to mention Jaxon, the ex-marine biker who has a thing for Leila will be doing his own meddling. The ending will definitely have you grabbing the sequel, PULLED, in a heartbeat. The third and final installment of Leila’s story will be out this fall (2015). It is definitely a must read!
