Take a Hint, Dani Brown (2020) Talia Hibbert (The Brown Sisters)

Take a Hint, Dani BrownTwo books in a row that were very much Not My Thing.

This is the second story about the Brown sisters, and we do briefly see Chloe, but mostly it’s Dani and Zaf.

Dani is focused on getting her doctorate, and isn’t interested in any other kind of work–especially the work of a relationship.

Zaf is a security guard who was once a rugby player, but he quite after his father and brother were killed in an automobile accident and his grief spiraled out of control.

Yes, he was paranoid about safety, and no, he didn’t give a fuck. Maybe if everyone was paranoid about safety, his dad and big brother wouldn’t have died in a car accident seven years ago.

Now he dedicates himself to Tackle It, the youth rugby group he founded that helps young men learn to deal with their feelings and emotions and fight toxic masculinity.

Also, he reads and listens to romance novels.

No spoilers.”

“Except for the happy ending.”

He laughed. “That’s not a spoiler. That’s a safety net.”

I adore Zaf.

The thing about mental health was, you couldn’t take a course of antibiotics and be magically healed. Some people’s brains just thought too much or felt too much or hurt too much, and you had to stay on top of that.

It’s not that I dislike Dani, it’s just that I am not built to understand the way she looks at sex, and she spent a LOT of time talking and thinking about sex.

So it was an another frustrating read for me, from an author I adore.

And again, the issue lies with me, not with the story.
