Torque by Gillian Archer

Torque by Gillian Archer

She’s his little sister’s best friend—totally off limits. But then again, this tattooed bad boy has never followed the rules.


I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t in love with Nathan Burns. We met when I was six and twenty years later, I love him still. But he’ll never see me as anything other than his little sister’s best friend—a pest—if he even thinks of me that much. I’ve got to face facts. He’s not into me. He’ll never be into me.

It’s beyond time to move on.


I swear I blinked and my little sister’s best friend—a woman who’s about as off-limits as it can get—grew up. And she’s hot as hell. When did that happen? It doesn’t help that she’s everywhere now—at our weekly family dinner nights, sleeping on my brother’s couch next door, lying out in our complex’s swimming pool in a barely-there bikini. And who are these losers hanging around her lately? None of them are worthy of the woman she’s become. Then again, neither am I.

And when I stumble across her profile on a hook up app, all bets are off.

Author’s Note: Can be read as a standalone.

The Burns brothers are back at it. This time, Nathan is trying to figure out why they agreed to do the TV show. It's one thing to have people film them while they work, it's another thing to have it be scripted. Nathan knows that his brothers think he doesn't listen to them, but he's just trying to show them how much he cares.

Maddie has loved Nathan since she was six years old. The years haven't diminished her crush either. When she finds herself in need of a new place, new job, and all-around new direction, she turns to her best friend, Dylan. Dylan and she are very close, but he also lives right next to Nathan. It's a small kind of hell that Maddie is living right now. She knows that Nathan has never and will never see her as more than his sister's best friend.

What happens when a dating app and sexual tension enter the equation? Things heat up fast. Nathan's eyes are sprung open, and Maddie is hoping beyond all hope than her life will start to go right.

With danger lurking around the Burns brothers, Maddie is sucked right in. It will take all of their strength to come together and solve this, but Nathan and Maddie are willing to see if their chemistry can turn in to something so much more.

Maddie and Nathan speak different languages and sometimes, that can lead to miscommunications. Let's just say that everyone in the book speaks different languages and they all have to figure out how to communicate the same language before someone gets seriously hurt.

I can't wait for the next book!

Maddie has been in love with Nathan for as long as she can remember but Nathan doesn't know she exists other than as his sister's friend. When she decides it's time to move on and try to forget him, she joins a dating app.

Nathan gets the shock of his life when he goes on the dating app for a night of fun and finds Maddie there. He can't believe his eyes. When did she grow up? And he can't believe the answers she gives to the profile questions. He doesn't know if he should scold her or take her out.

This story has a lot going on with the Burns brothers, Dillon is MIA most of the time, the other brothers are trying to make the show work while the producer wants them to bicker and fight. And the producer wants them to hire a bimbo receptionist just because two of the brothers are single. While Nathan is fed up with the producer and his antics, he doesn't want the show to end. He is worried about Dillon though.

I really liked this story, the heat between Nathan and Maddie was good but not off the charts. He was a playboy and it seemed overnight he was a one-woman man. All because he realized Maddie had grown up. This is a really good series, and you can read each story as a standalone or read them in order.

I’d guessed that sex with him would be hot, but nothing had prepared me for the onslaught of a pissed off Nathan. Maybe I’d have to piss him off more.
