No More Talking (Hearts Are Wild #1) by Rhian Cahill

It’s all…or nothing.

Zac Moreland knew he shouldn’t act on the sizzling attraction between him and his best friend’s little sister. But act he did, and he can’t forget that one night he let the heat between them burn.

Now, after months of doing everything in his power to avoid a repeat performance, he’s ready to admit defeat—and ready to go up in flames all over again.

Freddie never understood why Zac gave her the hottest night of her life and then the cold shoulder. But what she does know is that her eyes are wide open when it comes to Zac, and he better understand that this time she isn’t settling for anything less than everything.

Warning: Two people learning to be more than friends and a big brother ready to spillblood.
No More Talking was a fast read that combined just the right amount of sweet romance and spicy sex that has secured it a spot on my reread list. Zac is best friends with Freddie’s brother and has known her since they were children. But when she turned 25, he stopped seeing her as West’s little sister and started seeing her as the sexy woman he had to force himself to keep his hands off of… until one night he didn’t. While he has managed to avoid Freddie in the six months since that night, he hasn’t forgotten a single second of their encounter. Being best man at West’s wedding puts her directly in his sights and Zac decides he doesn’t want to deny himself any longer. However, after ignoring her for six months, it might not be that simple.

What I liked about this novella was that their built-in history allowed Freddie and Zac to move forward without it feeling rushed. In their case, this meant some smoking hot sex almost immediately and they did not let up. Boy howdy! Zac seemed intent on making up for the six months he avoided Freddie and she (and I) were quite happy with that – two words for you: Shower Sex!!! Of course, West finding out about his little sister and Zac made for two wonderfully entertaining scenes, although I’m sure Zac would disagree with my assessment. Despite the plentiful amounts of sex, No More Talking is a romance and it was up to Zac to decide just how far he wanted to take his relationship with Freddie. I was just glad that when he FINALLY decided he was all in, Freddie made Zac work for it for a bit – she didn’t just forgive and forget him walking away from her not once, but twice. Ultimately Freddie knew what she wanted, but she refused to be a pushover and that bodes well for their future. As the next book in the series is about Zac’s brother, I do hope that Ms. Cahill gives us a chance to see how life is progressing for Zac and Freddie. Until then, I’ll keep No More Talking in the queue for when I’m in need of a quick and steamy read.
