"Austin's Beauty and the Brit series is a phenomenally inventive, consistently surprising series, and this third installment might be her most challenging-and most rewarding-to date. Though her hero initially comes off as oafish, as he and his introverted heroine bring out each other's true colors, he becomes a sympathetic, conflicted character, while the heroine's developing strength and impressive self-assurance are a pleasure to watch unfold. Their chemistry develops into something utterly incendiary, but it is their personal connection and evolving bond that make this book unforgettable and a steamy, scandalous treat." - RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

Book #3: Beauty and the Brit Series
My Rating: 4½/5 stars
Last, but certainly not least in the Beauty and the Brit series is Brynne Campbell’s story. The youngest of the Campbell sisters, Brynne is the most introverted, shyest, and most insecure of the Campbell girls. Though Brynne is extremely good at her job, she allows her worthless boss to take advantage of her and can’t seem to say no when anyone asks her to take on some of their work. Brynne knows she is a sucker but she just can’t seem stop helping people even if it causes her discomfort. Which is exactly how Brynne feels when she is forced to work with Ian Chapman. Totally. Completely. Uncomfortable.
Iain Chapman is a driven man and makes no apologies to anyone for his behavior, attitude, mouth, or actions. When Iain wants something, it happens and it makes no difference at all who he has to steamroll over to get what he wants. He has managed to suppress most of his own feelings which in turn means he has no clue about the feelings of others. Nor does he care. As far as Iain is concerned, everyone is expendable. Enter Brynne Campbell, the only one of the Campbell sisters who is still single and the only one who can get Iain what he wants, access to Brynne’s brother-in-law, Trevor. Iain has big plans for the future of his business and he needs Trevor’s backing and money to make the dream a reality. In typical Iain fashion, Brynne is meant to be nothing more than a means to an end and if he gets to shag her, all the better.
Until he meets Brynne Campbell. Brynne is delicate, shy, intelligent, stunningly sexy, and the exact opposite of every woman Iain has ever shagged. Though she is clearly uncomfortable in his presence, Brynne has a job to do and she takes her work very seriously. If Iain could shut down his ginormous ego long enough to listen to her, Brynne might actually be able to make some positive changes in both his professional and personal life. In fact, if Iain can manage to be even the slightest bit respectful, he may get to see all of Brynne in a way that no other man ever has. The longer Brynne is in his presence, the more Iain likes her and for the first time in his life, he actually feels bad about his behavior and plan to use someone.
Brynne is at once completely turned off and completely turned on by Iain Chapman. He is brash, loud, uncouth, unapologetic, and domineering. The first four of those characteristics fall squarely into the character flaw column while the fifth falls right on into the completely intriguing, totally surprising, and super-sexy column. Well, what to do with that??? Turns out, Brynne decides to explore that domineering side of Iain and the results are explosive. The sexual chemistry between Brynne and Iain is absolutely off the charts and the deeper they delve into the sexual side of their relationship, the more emotionally attached they both become. While Brynne decides to embrace the good, Iain has to deal with his hidden agenda and how he will keep the awful from Brynne. If she were to find out . . . .
The Bottom Line: WOOOOOO! True to form and true to the series, His to Keep has a sexy Brit, a Campbell sister, a lot of crazy, some seriously hot naughty bits, and a story that has a blatant disregard for your commitments the following day. Yes, I stayed up way too late to finish this book and have not a single regret, not one. I have thoroughly enjoyed all three books in this series and love how interwoven all three books really are. The Campbell sisters are absolutely connected to one another, each sister finds a hot Brit (living in Vegas not less!), and each sister must overcome serious personal issues in an effort to find their HEA. The men are much the same in that they each have their own personal drama to sort through and each totally screws up his relationship before getting to his own HEA.
These two characters fight each other around every turn but you just know they are going to be happy together, even if they go about their relationship in an unconventional way. I loved their understanding for each other's needs and the way they pushed each other to be better.
This is one of my favorite books of all time and I highly recommend reading it! I will continue to read all of her romances!
