Publisher's Summary

Dear Axel,

It is incredibly stupid to write this text while I’m drunk. But what’s the saying? No gain, no pain. Or, no pain, no shame.... Whatever. You know what I mean. And let’s face it. There’s no way I would be doing this if I was stone-cold sober. But since I’m plastered? To hell with it.

I want you.

I know. Crazy, right? Not only am I your temporary roommate, but I’m a chatty nurse from Providence with an impeccable bedside manner and secrets. You’re a broody, commitment-phobe sculptor from England who communicates in grunts and single syllables. Not to mention, you’re returning home in several weeks. And yet, from the moment you dragged me for being a Swiftie, I’ve wanted to climb you like my personal jungle gym.

There’s no future for us. I’m not even sure I like you half the time. But that doesn’t stop me from hungering for those same hands that bend and shape metal to bend and shape me. So in all my drunken glory, I guess what I’m trying to say is if you want me, I’m yours. For the next few weeks until you return across the pond and we resume our lives as before. No strings. No demands. No regrets.

So meet me in the kitchen where all this started.

Or don’t.

It’s your decision.

Not that it matters. It’s not like I’m going to do something monumentally dumb like hit send on this text.

- Zenobia

I liked the guys voice!

Man, this book was slow. It took me a month to listen to. I really wish I got to see the main characters together more. And how did we not have an epilogue? It was okay. The male narrator is what did it for me. Had he not been in it I don’t think I would have finished the book.

Good....Bad

Good: The storyline itself is innately good and endearing. The characters are extremely likeable and sweet despite their wounded hearts. The story journey is engaging for the the most part.

Bad: Way too much word vomit! When a writer needs to use filler it would help if it kept the reader engaged and interested. I found myself skipping through quite a bit 8f muck in this story and that's why this story didn't receive a higher review.

Zenobia and Axel find love and healing

This story had so much more depth than I was anticipating. Loss and Grief is a very powerful thing especially when it occurs in your youth. Not all families grow stronger or deal with it in a supportive manner.

I listened to the audiobook and thought the narrators were okay. There was a lisp from the female narrator that I kept hearing but the guys accent was good.

I really liked Zenobia and found her to be relatable. She’s strong, resilient and vocal. I was pulling for her the entire book because she deserved to be seen and loved. Axel took a minute to get used to since he was the grumpy artist. But I always root for love and healing.

This is probably my favorite Naima Simone story because there was really good character development and growth in this story. I love stories with layers as well a lot of heat! Plus, It had humor so I found myself chuckling at times.

May I add that I loved Z’s emotional connection with her work and that she went to counseling. I am always impressed when an author presents counseling a viable option to help characters process trauma. Bravo Naima Simone.

Bloody Brilliant!!

Broody Brit : A Hero Club Novel by Naima Simone
Narrated by Will Thorne & Aria Addison

Oh bloody hell!!! This book was everything to me!!
All the British nuances and slangs and mentions of football matches and the telly watching…it all did it for me.
I loved this book so much!
Axel and Zenobia had me all up in my feelings.
And the narration by Thorne & Addison was brilliant. Especially Will Thorne!! I was so happy with his narration of this book. I finished this story in no time and wanted more.
The story it self was compelling and believable. I was rooting for all the characters to win!!

Storyline almost seems like a repeat

Storyline almost seems like a repeat because Blakes brother is also supposedly Liam from British bachelor and in this book axle admits to being the only sign left of his parents so that’s kind of confusing to me because how many brothers can this dead person have. Although this is fictional seems weird to have brothers coming out of the woodwork. But character aside it was a pretty good listen

How could you not love it

This was such a sweet story. So possible. Childhood traumas touched on and through love healed or better understood. Such a broody man knock down by a woman and a bottle of wine. I would love you know what happened a little into the future. I also found a new author.

It was ok...

Broody Brit was my second read by Naima Simone and it wasn't quite what I was hoping I would. It honestly felt like too much was trying to be written into their story with very little time to develop it all. And that threw me out of the story quite a bit.

I liked the narrators that were picked for this one and plan to listen to more by them.

I struggled with some of the British lingo, honestly never heard some of the terms that were used.

A little bummed this wasn't more of a winner for me. I will say that Axel's reactions while watching Grey's Anatomy were spot on! I loved those.

Swoony Brooding Brit

Broody Brit by Naima Simone is HOT!! I listened to this read and Aria Addison and Will Thorne are absolute perfection.

Zenobia and Axel are from two different worlds. Literally two different continents. Their happenstance of being thrown together is a set-up for comic gold. However, these two are less funny and more what they each needed in that moment even though they didn't know they needed it. The way they help each other is so endearing. The comic gold comes when they think they're fooling their friends. I was laughing out loud!!

As a nurse, I tend to avoid any books that involve medical characters because their behavior in their professional capacity is often very unrealistic. This book had a couple of cringe-worthy moments in this aspect but because everything else was so good I could overlook it.
