REVIEW : Bang Bang by Belle Brooks

Bang, bang!

They shot us down.

Bang, bang! 

We ran through town.

Bang, bang!

Now here I am …

Bang, bang

… in an undercover police sting. 

Miranda Sikes is a twenty-year-old university student who hates venturing into the city, but her grandmother’s watchband isn’t going to repair itself.

The watchband doesn’t get fixed. 
She misses the bus home.
She’s stuck in the one place she loathes.
But there’s a silver lining: free wedding cake by Alessandro. It’s only the best cake in the world. Now all Miranda needs is a fiancé to dine with so she can meet the store’s terms. 

Miranda’s next decision will change the course of her day, her year, and her life. 

And it all happens when she grabs the arm of a man named Haggerty, finds herself shoeless while running down a busy street, and is forced to dive to the ground when she hears …


Am I going to die all because of a misplaced phone and free cake?


This is my first book from Belle Brooks and I was intrigued by this story after reading the blurb. This did not disappoint and was so much more than I expected.

It was hilarious, steamy and I loved the drama. I was completely hooked from the very first word and devoured this story in a matter of hours!

Miranda just wanted some cake, only needed a man to pretend to be her fiancé. Naturally, you find the first random guy you can. Only this guy runs out, leaves his phone and this creates a major turn of events in Miranda’s life and one she never saw coming.

Miranda is my favorite type of heroine. She is SASSY, especially when it comes to Haggerty. Plus, the girl loves a great cake. Haggerty seems like a tough man, but inside he is super caring and protective and that definitely showed when it came to Miranda and keeping her safe. Their banter was perfect from the very beginning and the chemistry was great.

If you never read Belle Brooks before I highly recommend this book. It is different from other romances I’ve read, but doesn’t lack in steam, drama, suspense and laughs.
