Brendon was the eighth and final book in the Alluring Indulgence series by Nicole Edwards.
Brendon Walker was Braydon’s twin. We knew from previous books that Brendon had been struggling for a while once Braydon began having a life and love of his own. We also learned previously that Brendon was highly attracted to Cheyenne Montgomery, yet neither was willing to acknowledge it, which created anger and tension between the two.
Cheyenne Montgomery was the beautiful and famous country star who had roots in Coyote Ridge, TX. She was a friend of Travis, Brendon’s brother, and ultimately a friend to all of the Walker’s. She was in the process of purchasing and renovating an old Victorian home, which put her in the direct path of Brendon more often then not.
Edwards had been teasing us with scenes between Brendon and Cheyenne for several books now. Edwards finally gave us what we wanted and once they got through the awkwardness, I loved that they embraced it. The drama didn’t come from the relationship but Edwards included another plot reflective of a high profile music star. It added suspense and depth to the storyline.
I loved both characters. Brendon’s alpha protectiveness was appealing. It wasn’t uncommon for today’s themes, but I’m always a huge fan when it’s written well. I was also charmed by Brendon’s shyness, gentleness and awkwardness towards Cheyenne. It was endearing and a mix that worked well.
Additionally, Edwards included the entire Walker clan - encompassing cousins and a few friends - which now leads us straight into two other series: Sniper 1 Security and Coyote Ridge.
In the end, it was a typical Edwards saga - well written, well developed, sexy, entertaining, teasers for the future and a well written epilogue that brought us full circle with the Walker Clan. A truly enjoyable series and a promise for more greatness in future spinoffs.
