#Review — Brave & Beautiful (Sassy Boyz #3) Elizabeth Varlet

Brave & Beautiful

Sassy Boyz #3

Elizabeth Varlet

Sexy, seductive and hiding dark secrets, the Sassy Boyz return to the stage in Brave & Beautiful  

There's only one relationship that matters to Tameron "Tam" Kis—his love affair with dance. Life's been pretty shitty, but dance got him through it and now he's ready to focus on what he loves. He doesn't have the bandwidth for any distractions—especially not his sexy, not-quite-straight new neighbor. 

Driver Ellis doesn't need anything but his bike and the open road. He wouldn't trade his drifter lifestyle for anything…until his friend calls in a favor and Driver suddenly finds himself pet-sitting. Driver isn't thrilled being stuck in one place, though things start to look up when he sets eyes on the gorgeous girl next door.  

There's just one problem… She isn't a girl at all. 

All it takes is one spontaneous dance to turn both Driver's and Tam's worlds upside down. They might not have been looking for love, but as things heat up between them, it's clear life has very different plans.

Brave & Beautiful is the third book in the Sassy Boyz series but, unfortunately—for me—it is the first one I've read. While I finally understood everything, I do think it would have helped to read the other's first and I'll definitely be going back to grab those first two. 

Tam is the choreographer for the Sassy Boyz and has quite the damaged past. He's determined to get the boys back on track and I loved him immediately. Due to his past, he has no interest in sex but that changes, somewhat, when he meets Driver...the bad biker boy.

Driver is living temporarily in the same apartment building as Tam. He's housesitting for his friend but he first meets Tam at a bar mistaking him with his long hair and slim figure as a female. When he realizes the error of his ways, he is not undeterred and continues to show interest and I loved, loved that about him so much.

However, not unlike Tam, Driver has his own baggage and quite a bit of it. Regardless of time, friends, and now Tam giving new purpose in Driver's life he can't let go of his guilt and grief that carries him through his life. 

This was my first time reading anything by this author and I loved the writing, the characters, and the way I was pulled into the story from the beginning. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. With that said, however, it's pretty angsty and emotional but a very beautiful story. 

I'll definitely be reading the first two in the series in preparation for the next book coming.
