"A hit-it-and-quit-it affair turns into hot and heavy romance with another of the Alphabet bachelors"

Fresh Fiction Review

Bachelor Unleashed
Brenda Jackson

Reviewed by Patricia Woodside

Romance | Multicultural African-American

Farrah Langley and Xavier Kane have mutual friends. In fact, they met at the wedding of Donovan Steele and Natalie Ford. But it was supposed to be a hit-it-and-quit-it affair, not the long-term torrid relationship their union has become. Farrah, realizing she's getting in deeper than either of them wants, calls it quits. But quitting might not be so easy.

Brenda Jackson has written so many romances with such a huge and intertwined cast of characters that it's sometimes hard to keep up. I guess that's why the first few chapters of her romances sometimes seem a little too laden with back story, probably necessary to ground new readers in her vast story-world. However, each and every one of her couples is memorable as are her supporting characters. That's why it's always a treat to revisit a pair as hot and bothered as Farrah and Xavier.

Jackson is at the top of her game when it comes to writing hot and heavy love scenes wherein the emotion and the sex get equal billing.

Xavier is one of the six men (all sworn bachelors) who are godbrothers because their fathers were best friends in college. After Donovan's marriage, Xavier has no intention of falling. But Farrah does things to him, makes him want things he never thought he would want. So there were five bachelors...and now there are four.

BACHELOR UNLEASHED is another Jackson winner. I can't wait to see which of the remaining godbrothers will be next.

Learn more about Bachelor Unleashed


They had a hot, fleeting affair Farrah Langley has never forgotten. Attorney-to-the-rich-and-famous Xavier Kane was tender, sexy, attentive—and ravished her body. Everything she ever wanted in a lover. Getting together with him again in New York is a fantasy come true. She certainly doesn't expect the footloose bachelor to change his ways. And the burned-by-love mediator isn't looking for forever.

But Xavier is.

There's something about Farrah…something that touches him deep in his soul…something that keeps him coming back. So when fate brings them together again, Xavier's ready to pick up where they left off. But this time around, he wants more. Can he convince the lean, leggy beauty that he's finished playing the field? That he wants only one woman in his bed, in his arms—in his heart?
