The Mastermind
By Nadia Han
5*

Oh my goodness! This book is absolutely amazing and I could not put it down. I have to say as a general rule I am hesitant to read “brothers best friend” books but I have to say that this book definitely will have me thinking twice about avoiding them. The characters in this book were very well developed and I have to say that the plot was absolutely amazing. I love that it took what can be a very “normal” plot and made it into something that I’m not sure I will ever stop raving about. The characters are so multifaceted with dark secrets and pasts that definitely helped to develop them. I love that it has the added bonus of two characters that have known each other forever and have shared a spark since then. I truly loved Audri and Remi and was completely invested in them. I truly cannot recommend this book enough and am so glad that it is the first in a series as I definitely want to read more.

If you love a good forbidden romance with a brother’s best friends this is your kind of story. Our couple, Remi and Audri have tremendous chemistry together. This alpha has met his match with this fierce, smart, and very self-sufficient woman. Remi cannot help but fall for the beautiful Audri even though she is his best friend’s little sister! There are twists and turns giving you that stomach drop feeling hoping that after this they will be together. The author did a beautiful job of keeping the story moving in a very organic way without sacrificing any aspect of the story that needed telling. This is a wonderful start to what is sure to be an action packed, heat fueled series.

The Mastermind is a good read but it didn’t have a big pull to draw me completely into the story. I always enjoy a brother’s best friend and millionaire love story but somehow the connection of Remi and Audri fell a bit flat for me. They were a bit cheesy in a lot of the dialogue and at times their intimacy felt forced. I did enjoy the suspense the author gave us and the twists and turns we took to get the full mystery unraveled. I recommend because it did give me the happy ending I look for when reading this style I just failed with the character connection.

The Mastermind is book one in Waterfyre Rising by Nadia Han. Audri is his best friends little sister, meaning she’s off limits. Or is she? They are both adults and both unable to deny their attraction anymore. Remi is the insanely intelligent billionaire who turns into her boss who turns into someone she needs in her life. This pair plays with danger but not always knowingly or purposefully. Remi has been caught up in something for years and Audri has a guilt stricken past. You definitely fooled me in thinking Nadia had been writing forever, this just so happened to be her debut book. It was suspenseful, well written and kept my attention throughout. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot unraveling. I hope future books in this series circle back a little because I’d like to see how these characters get along in the future.

This book intrigued me in ways I did not expect! I loved the way Nadia combined so many different emotions into one book. Lust, love, fear, hope, betrayal, and belonging… Everything Audri and Remi felt, I felt too. I loved the twists in the story, and how everything from their pasts wove together.
If you are looking for “a brother’s best friend romance” – this is all that and more! From the undeniable attraction and longing to the steamy sex scenes, Nadia really delivers. She created so many wonderful characters, and I cannot wait to join them again in the second WaterFyre Rising book.

This book had my attention from the very first page! If you want an amazing read with spice and suspense…then this is the one for you. Remi is this dark guy with a past, he doesn’t wear his heart on his sleeve…but he has a soft spot for a girl in particular. So many things happened in this book and it kept me on my toes! Things happened that I didn’t expect and that’s what makes it great. I love the twists and turns. But of course, the spice 🤌🏽 phenomenal. Remi is definitely a mastermind and I highly recommend this!

Remi is a self-made billionaire with a past that has hardened him and has him living in a perpetual dark place. Audri, his best-friend’s sister, is successful in her own right and is working for Remi. She has always had a special place in her heart for Remi…and now she wants to help him out of that dark place, while fighting her own darkness. Their love is forbidden and blurs many lines…but also reveals secrets that could destroy them. Can they overcome the darkness…or will they be destined to dwell there forever?!?
First of all…this is not your normal brother’s best friend story…this is so much more!! There were so many twists and turns…and their pasts have pushed them to be the successful people they are today…but those same pasts threaten to tear them down and apart. I was sucked into this story til the very end. A great book by a new-to-me author. I will definitely be checking out what they write next!
