Review: Breach of Contract by Laramie Briscoe (NashVegas #2)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.
Laramie Briscoe returns to her NashVegas series with the much awaited second book--one that I thought was the conclusion because I thought this was a duet. I swear, when I read the series starter, my understanding was this was going to be a duet, but it turns out that this is a trilogy. Not sure if that was a choice made while book two was being written or if that was the plan all along, but yeah, three books. So, I may be a wee bit frustrated, but such is life as a reader. Luckily, Briscoe has proven to be the sort of author who makes the wait between books in a series well worth it, so I shall endeavor to be patient.
Breach of Contract picks up soon after where Power Couple left off. This is where I'm going to recommend that you stop reading this review if you've yet to read the series starter. The NashVegas series has a continuing story line focused on one particular couple--Everett and Brianna Thompson, aka EJ and Bri--so reading the books in order would be best so you don't miss out on the development of the story and both characters. Book two has EJ and Bri madly in love but dealing with secrets and work complications.
Love conquers all, and when it comes to romances, the guaranteed happily-ever-after reiterates that saying. However, love doesn't exactly equate to a life free of hassle and complications. There's no denying that EJ and Bri love each other, but they're tested time and again in this second book, especially as far as their careers are concerned. Their marriage isn't on as firm a footing as you would think, not when Bri has her cache of secrets, and it's clear that EJ knows she's hiding stuff from him. After all, trust is necessary for any relationship to work. The ending's kind of a cliffhanger, so we have to wait till March 2022 for the series conclusion. For now, Breach of Contract gets four stars.
