Publisher's Summary

I’m cast away on a tropical island with a dirty, damaged alpha-hole.

Women swoon over him.

I’m not one of them.

I hate him.

And I see right through those indigo-blue eyes.

Brash is hurting.

But that doesn’t give him the right to be a douchebag.

Especially now that I’m all he’s got here.

A mafia princess who knows how to set someone straight.

I will bring him to his knees.

If only he’d stop making me weak in mine.

His strong arms have become my refuge.

And his gorgeous smile, my hope.

He tells me that I belong to him.

That he’ll protect me in this dangerous place.

But what happens if my heart is at risk?

Who will save me then?

From international best-selling author SC Daiko comes a thrilling new stand-alone romantic suspense novel, a spin-off from Brute, Beast, and Nanny and the Bratva Boss.

Male Narrator

I am sorry but it needs to be said.... the male narrator in this audible book makes it almost hard to listen too. I stuck it out, but they really should have went a different route with male voice.

Brash

This wasn't necessarily an original storyline but it was an enjoyable story nonetheless. Brash was not at all likable at first but it didn't take long for him to turn into a protective and caring guy. Aly was young and sheltered but grew a lot as a person during her time on the island. This book held my interest throughout the whole story. It had the right amount of romance, danger and suspense to make it a book I would recommend.

Hugo and Kinsey did a very good job at bringing the characters to life in this duet narration. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

A lot of personal growth for both characters......

Brash is part of the author's Bratva world, but this is my first book by Daiko, and I had no trouble following the story from the beginning. This book features two polar opposites thrown together into a situation in which they have no choice but to count on each other and to get to know each other better. Brash is the nickname for Ben Collins, and he has more than earned his nickname with his abrasive, condescending attitude. He meets Alyona Abramovich, the much younger and completely sheltered daughter of his business partner, one of the leaders of the Russian mafia. These two feel an instant chemistry, but they fight against it with everything they have. When they are stranded on a deserted island together, they learn to work together and appreciate the strengths and weaknesses in the other.

I spent the first half of the book wanting to slap Brash, but, once we learn his backstory, I could see that he was redeemable. He actually ended up as one of my favorite book boyfriends. I liked Aly from the first. Although young and inexperienced, she had such a drive to become independent and to experience all that life had to offer. The book has a high level of heat, and the passion between these two practically melted my iPhone. There are many roadblocks to them achieving an HEA, but I highly recommend taking the journey with them to that destination.

This is my first listen to both narrators, but it definitely won't be my last. The book is jointly narrated in the style that combines both performances into one. Wylde speaks for all the male characters and Cass speaks for all the female characters. I always enjoy this style of narration, and these two narrators have perfected it. They are both very talented, and they perform together so seamlessly that I kept forgetting I was listening to an audiobook rather than living the story with the characters. Wylde's deep, slightly British voice and Cass's light, delicate voice added even more passion and excitement to an already fantastic story.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Erotic Blue Lagoon...

Totally loved the concept. They weren’t really enemies from the start, more like two people who disliked each other based on preconceptions. But forcing them to survive alone on an island was one way of setting their misunderstandings right. And boy did they “work together” in some steamy ways!
I think some of the survival story was unrealistic. It’s darn near impossible to start a fire rubbing sticks, let alone learn it as a young girl. And ripe coconuts have milk, green have water, and one crab will not feed them both... stuff like that.
Great narration.

A Brash Review...

Wasn’t sure what to expect - started out decent, but not the best flow. I struggled with both male and female narrators - female went a bit overboard at times; male was somewhat stilted. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great Story & Listen🎧 Survivor Style Romance!

I knew this book was going to be great as soon as I read it's synopsis. A brash billionaire playboy and a mafia princess left stranded on a deserted island after surviving a plane crash in the Indian Ocean near the Maldives. This is my first book by SC Daiko and I enjoyed her writing style and the storylines she created, they are original and held my interest from start to end. Aly is the mafia princess, she is also an aspiring photographer, though her father does not take her agree with her career choice, he has plans for her, which include a husband of his choosing. Aly first met Ben Collins, the billionaire playboy was sitting opposite Aly at her bother’s wedding, he is a business partner with Aly’s father and also a cocky arrogant alpha-hole. Lets say they did not exactly hit it off. He sees her again when he attended an opening at the art gallery where some of her photos were being featured. Liking her work he tells her he has an assignment for her, he wants her to take photos of his resort on one of the island in the Maldives to feature on his website and brochures. And he does not ask he tells her when and where to meet. He sure lives up to his nickname of “Brash” but she looks at the job as a good career opportunity. The trip goes well, she gets great photos, she also sees that Brash is a workaholic with little to no people skills. Woman want him for his looks and money but he has no interest in settling down. He is a love them and leave them type of guy. Just leaving the island the seaplane they were on crashes, they are separated from the fuselage, Ben saves Aly and they are floating hoping to be rescued. No rescue in site, Ben gets Aly to an island that is uninhabited. The two are stuck there for weeks, during that time they get to know each other, Aly learns he has issues with woman stemming from a broken heart. But Aly is crumbling that wall around his heart and starts to see there is a caring human inside of him. I liked how this story played out, it was well plotted and included plenty of drama, angst, some suspenseful twists and turns as well as a hot, slow burn enemies to lovers romance. SC Daiko thank you for this great story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Hugo Wylde and Kinsey Cass are new to me narrators and I loved their work. They are entertaining storytellers and terrific voice performers. They bring these characters to life, give each their own voice and personality. They did a great job projecting the emotions of the characters, the drama of the story into their performance. Hugo Wylde’s take on Brash was perfectly alpha with attitude and then swoon worthy when he warmed towards Aly. His accents were great too. Kinsey Cass’ Aly was great too, she gave her a lot heart and strength as well. Thank you for this great listen🎧

Romance on an uninhabited island

I really enjoyed this book. It was so good. Brash was a gorgeous billionaire playboy b@stard who eventually mellowed out after being in a plane crash and stranded on an uninhabited island with Ally. While on the island, Brash and Ally became very close. This book was so good in how their relationship grew. We find out why Brash was referred to as Brash and what happened when he was younger. There is a villain who we meet earlier in the book and I love what happens to him. Ally's father, who was mafia, was a piece of work and much too controlling. I was so glad when she finally stood up to him. Gleb, from Beast, makes an appearance just in time when things get rough. I loved the epilogue.

The narrators did a great job. Hugo Wylde did an awesome job with the Russian accents. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

5+ Stars!

Loved it! Another fantastic book by the ever so talented SC Daiko!! The storyline was incredibly clever and very well written. It will grab your attention from the very beginning. I liked how the story unfolded with suspense and just enough details to keep one guessing what would happen next.

I absolutely love Brash & Alyona. I love the chemistry and connection between them. I thought Hugo Wylde and Kinsey Cass did a wonderful job narrating and portraying the characters. They were the perfect match, and complimented each other nicely.

Definitely worth the credit!!

Brash

This one was my favourite yet! We met Ben as a little kid back in Brute but now hes ALL grown up! Him and Alyona end up thrown together in unfortunate circumstances and he really is Brash! What a jerk! At least that the facade he puts on , what follows is a very heated and I mean HOT story! I loved how it all played it out , true to form this story had everything from drama to excitement , it's a little tamer in the drama department then previous books but amazing all the same !

both narrators were perfect for their roles , loved how they could voice a whole range of characters and accents an easy 5 stars
