[Siren Classic: Erotic Contemporary Romance]
Josephine Brazen is the best CPA around, but even she may not be able to help Cameron Elwood out of the mess he's in. Reluctantly, she takes him on as a client. Cameron pushes her buttons, driving her to distraction. He makes her want to do things she's never considered before, and having her sisters not believe her when she tells them he's just a client forces her to realize they might be right.
Joey is so organized she scares him, but Cameron knows she's just what he needs. The more he's around her, the more he wants to get her to loosen up. He hates that she keeps him at a distance when all he wants is to get closer. When people around town start talking about them, he decides to play up that angle and see if she can still pretend the only thing between them is business.

They say that no good deed goes unpunished. That's exactly what Joey Brazen thought when she met Cameron Elwood in UNCOMMONLY BRAZEN. To the ultra organized CPA, showing up to their first meeting not only late, but filthy is inexcusable. However, Joey promised a family friend to review his accounts, so she hesitantly agrees.
As Joey unravels Cam's mess, she tries to dodge her five sisters and a town and their invasive questions and ideas. Meanwhile, Cam tries his best to get Joey to loosen up, but he doesn't seem to make any headway. Little does he know that Joey fights to maintain a distance or risk rushing head long into a possible mistake.
This is the fourth book in the Brazen series, and I haven't had a chance to read the previous three, so maybe I am missing some of the back story. But the beginning of the book had me hooked pretty quick and I happily settled in to learn more about Joey and her sisters. However, somewhere in the middle, the characters got lost in the muck and mire of other people's opinions and dodging questions that didn't seem so earth shattering.
Also, there is a side story of Hal and Frankie that really needed to be explored a bit more. You can't just drop a bombshell and then put it on the back burner. Perhaps Ms. Sawyer will be telling their story in the next installment, but it was distracting in this one. UNCOMMONLY BRAZEN left me wanting more answers, like what did CAM do in a past life and just how famous was he and how did Joey not know all this. When does he plan on coming clean?
Perhaps it's because I haven't read the first three that I am missing the draw of the Brazen sisters. I'd hoped for a more complex story, but I just left the table still hungry.
