Publisher's Summary

Anvil is a rough, muscled bouncer working in a roadhouse. Sarah is a type-A, risk averse actuarial major with her whole life mapped out. 

She has a plan. Goals. And none of them include a tattooed, possessive bouncer. 

She just wanted one night off from being perfect, boring, and careful. The night she steps out to try something out of her comfort zone, sneaking into a bar on the shady side of town, the alpha bouncer steps in to protect her from danger. 

Danger from everything but him. 

*Author's confession: I don't even know if this could happen in real life. Luckily, it's a book. That means the hot, tatted, beardy bouncer can totally take one look at the virgin college student studying actuarial science and know he's going to marry the sh*t out of her. Right? * 

*Anyway - totally safe romance - HEA, no cheating, hero who wouldn't dream of looking at another woman after he sees Sarah. Trust Auntie Brill. It's a crazy story, but it's so much fun.

entoxicating

so as I'm having a rough night getting to sleep I scroll through the list of books and stumble across this one. Not thinking it's going to be much of a story, I begin listening hoping it's something that will put me to sleep. Well quite the opposite! Anvil & Sarah are not at all doing what we would expect. It was a great story that had me wide awake & in need of more!

No

I was skeptical when their relationship began before any kind of plot did...

I was done when the words 'girl cum' were used. It sort of reads like it's written by a 13 year old boy, who is hoping to have his dirty story published in next month's Penthouse.

Don't expect depth or development

Alright, I'm seeing a pattern here with this author. Insta-love/lust, virgin, beyond alpha male to the point of scary controlling and "me Tarzan, you Jane".
Don't expect character development, story or any meat. Man meets girl, man does whatever he can to get in her pants including marriage, knocks her up and HEA.
If that's what you're looking for in a bite size package, here ya go.

Bouncer and the Actuary

Sarah goes to a club with her friend a day and a half before her 21st birthday. The friend gives the bouncer who lets them in a BJ. When they are done, Anvil walks in. He kicks out the friend and bouncer. Sarah is a planner and organizer and she tells him she is not sleeping with anyone until she is married. So Anvil marries her that night. This book was really good. I loved the epilogue.

The narrators, Kale Williams and Lisa Zimmerman, were very good. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So Funny

This book made me laugh from beginning to end. It must be a comedy. Really enjoyed the storyline. The narrators did a fabulous job bringing the characters to life. I like that it packs a lot of punch in a short period of time. Sometimes I want quick. I have already downloaded all of the books in this series, so on to the next one!

Its Hot!

One might not think so about a Bouncer and an Actuary. The Hero even comments about how unsexy that sounds, and the author even confesses how unlikely this is, but trust me, the Steam Is Real! Bounced is one smexy standalone, even though it is listed as part of a series, but that is more in theme.

Its short, its hot, its insta-love, insta-lust at its finest. It all just works. No violence or cheating drama. HEA plus epilogue.
Brill Harper wrote a sexy short with substance that makes me want more.

This story is performed in alternating POV of the two main characters, Anvil and Sarah. Kale Williams and Lisa Zimmerman make a good team.

I didn’t notice any issues with the audio production. I listened at 1.00x speed.
I listened to this through Audible Escape.

Not for me

This one checked too many "nope" boxes for me. Instalove. Virginal heroine. Weak heroine who lets others make decisions for her. Thin plot. Cringeworthy sex scenes (the dirty talk was immature). Just nope.

Insta hot and sweet

I loved reading Bounced when I was first introduced to Brill Harper. Listening to the audiobook version made it oh, so much more wickedly delicious. Kale Williams and Lisa Zimmerman brought these characters to life and the chemistry just zings with all that erotic goodness.

Way too short

Narrators were perfect. Both are new for me. Story was cute but a bit too short. I think all books should be at least 2 hours. Glad I listened to it though as I found some new narrators out of it.

A refreshingly unique quickie!

Not gonna lie, I picked this up because I like Kale's voice but was actually pleasantly surprised by the story for being so short. Of course , you need to leave the realist in you at the door for this one, but the story is crisp and well paced.
Well worth a listen if you need a quick romp!
I thoroughly enjoyed the performance too! Both Lisa Zimmerman and Kale Williams bought this short to life!

HOT!!!

Short read/listen but really good. I loved he kept asking her if it was okay to touch her and that he didn't just alpha his way into her bed. Great story!.

Fun and steamy

A great short story about an OTT protective and possessive Alpha male and a good girl who lived her life with a strict plan, one night she lets loose right into the arms of Anvil and her life gets tipped up side down. Lots of humour and steamy banter, the narrators did an excellent job making the characters come to life.
