He can’t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.So, why can’t they keep their hands off each other?
Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hill’s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesn’t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesn’t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesn’t mean she can’t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time he’s sneaking into her bed.
Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he can’t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelope’s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, he’ll have to admit his feelings for the woman he’d do anything to protect.
What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.
Flutter is the third novel in the Nash Brothers series. You don’t necessarily need to read Fleeting or Forgiven to read Flutter. However, you should because you meet both Penelope or Forrest and learn a little about them in the other novels.
Flutter is a mix of enemies to lovers meets friends with benefits. There is also an age gap, Penelope is six years older than Forrest.
Flutter is told in Penelope and Forrest’s point of view. I have been wanting Penelope to get her happy ending since the first time I met her in Fleeting. Flutter is a quick and easy read that can easily cure a reading slump. This is something I especially love about Carrie Aarons writing. You get lost in her words and her storytelling that you don’t even realize the story is over, until it is over.
Penelope is probably one of my favorite heroines that Carrie has ever written. Penelope is a widow and a mother of three young boys. She lost her husband in war and has been holding down her family with some help of her parents and her husband’s family. She is also very loyal, strong, caring and above all strong. She is also very sarcastic, a bit of a loud mouth, she isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. I really enjoyed reading and getting to know Penelope.
Forrest is on the twins. He is a bit of the outsider in the four brothers. He is way too smart for his own good. He is a bit of a loner, an asshole, anti social. He never seems to fit in. He’s also a hacker and gets paid for his abilities.
I loved the chemistry between Penelope and Forrest. I loved everything about them as a pair. They had the perfect amount of banter, sexy times, communication (although Forrest sometimes SUCKED at this) and the love they slowly developed for each other. I especially loved how Forrest was opened to accepting the fact that Penelope doesn’t just come with Penelope baggage she comes with three kids. It truly warmed my heart.
After finishing another Nash Brothers book, I like to say Forrest is my favorite Nash Brother. However, I still have Falter sitting on my kindle to read so my final decision will be made then. But right now, I’d have to say that Flutter is my favorite book of the series and I think Forrest is the brother I really loved the most. But again, this is just a testament to Carrie’s writing, her ability to make you love each and every character she writes.
