Okay, before you start reading, I am talking a lot about UFCKING so there you go with the trigger warning. Honestly, I don’t know why I need to say trigger warning for adult consensual sex. But there you go! I finally read the second book in The Brown Sisters trilogy by Talia Hibbert. If you have not read the first book then here is a full review
Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert
Okay, before I get into the review, I think that Talia Hibbert now has a special place in my heart.
Danika Brown who was briefly introduced to us in the first book is a Ph.D. student at the university where she also teaches undergraduate students. All she wants out of life is good old professional and academic achievement, a bucket load of orgasmic sex, and green tea. So as you can expect she is funny and passion-driven, but another thing you need to know about Dani is that she has huge breasts (or at least I am imagining they are huge) this might be my pervert imagination. Her big breasts sure call for attention but that is not important right now.
Having broken up with her not-really-an-asshole friend turned sex partner she is looking for another partner so she prays to Oshun to grant her one (As a Nigerian, seeing Oshun, a river goddess who is known as the goodness of water, fertility, love, and sensuality, mentioned in this book just brings me joy, something for the culture) and more sure comes in the form of ex-rugby player turned brooding security guard, Zafir Ansari.
Zafir Ansair just makes me think of a buff Hasan Minhaj (and yes, I am willing to go there), he is a hot security guard that works at Dani’s University and in some way they are friends. Zaf reads romance novels (yes the smutty kind, with hard banging, *internal rant* what is with hot guys in books getting into romance novels, I am not mad at it) and it is a method he has developed to cope with his traumatic experience. Back to the story
Of course, just like any sane man, Zaf thinks about Danika when she is in his view (See, Imagine but don’t touch, just like a person should behave), so when a chemical drill occurs at the university and everyone gets to safety but not Danika’s fine ass, we run around the university looking for her. Then he finds her in the Elevator and they become the rescued couple that is trending on the internet.
#DrRugbae trending reveals a lot of things about the way Zaf is staring at Danika and she believes that Oshun has answered her pray for face riding orgasms.
With the trending hashtag, Zaf’s sport charity for kids, Tackle it, is brought to the spotlight and he hopes that he could raise money for the charity with this viral moment, they have. So he decided to ask her for a fake dating relationship and of course, she agrees (because she wants a piece of his fine ass, honestly this book made me happy because we finally see a woman who is it just for the sex, not a healthy relationship goal but at least, she gets the D). Anyways they end up fake dating and you KNOW, they fucking smashed, hard!!!!!!!! (This BOOK is everything)
I appreciate the fact that Zaf’s relationship with God was touched upon in this book, albeit briefly but it was something. I also loved the message of the charity and how they teach young boys about toxic masculinity and facing your problems, that it is okay to be vulnerable, that it is okay to hurt. There was one part that got to me, “You let them get treatment for injuries but why do you neglect them when their soul is injured” I loved the message that he was trying to spread.
Another thing that I thought about while writing this review was the fact even before she found out that he was an ex-rugby player, she (a Ph.D. student) was thinking about a Security guard, I know that this might seem superficial and almost irrelevant (which it should be) but in the real world, some students in higher education have it in their heads that they are, in some way, better than others. Another some guys tend to feel small when they are with partners that they believe are smarter than they are (which is nonsense, but who am I to talk).
I loved how banter-filled their relationship was, even when somethings were a bit too serious they knew how to bring fun into their conversation and it was just Hilarious to read.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for reading.
I don’t know if you know this, I have a Podcast, so if you are looking for something to listen to, then I highly recommend (well of course I do)
