He canโ€™t stand her, and best believe, the feeling is mutual.
Her life is the complete opposite of what he desires.
So, why canโ€™t they keep their hands off each other?

Forrest Nash is a smug know-it-all. With his brains, ridiculous good looks and penchant for disobeying the laws of both the police and the dark web, Fawn Hillโ€™s resident genius is cockier than any man Penelope Briggs has ever encountered. It doesnโ€™t help that their six-year age difference makes him completely ineligible in her eyes. Add in the fact that he doesnโ€™t want marriage or babies, and that should eliminate him from the dating pool forever. But it doesnโ€™t mean she canโ€™t sleep with him. Once. Or twice. Or ten times. Against all logic, though, Forrest seems to be sneaking into her heart at the same time heโ€™s sneaking into her bed.

Penelope Briggs is one bossy, obnoxious woman. With three young children, a calendar full of school drop-offs and sports, and enough emotional baggage to fill an airplane, this widow is definitely not what Forrest Nash is looking for. And yet, he canโ€™t get enough of the maddening bombshell. But as their hook-ups become a constant, so does his involvement in Penelopeโ€™s life. The things he swore he never wanted, love and kids, seem to be the only things on his mind. And when an attack from his part of the cyber world threatens her safety, heโ€™ll have to admit his feelings for the woman heโ€™d do anything to protect.

What started as a convenient friends-with-benefits situation is quickly growing wings. Even if both parties are trying hard to ignore the flutter.


Flutter is available for a special release day price of $2.99! The book will increase to $3.99 the day after release.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Feel-Good Stars

Who knew that Forrest Nash was such a softie? I think he may be my favorite brother yet! Carrie Aarons nails another perfectly perfect romcom!

Penelope — best friend of Lily from Forgiven and Presley from Fleeting — is a single mom, a war widow who is struggling to keep her life together and raise her three young sons. Forrest has always been a nuisance in her life, the little brother of her pal Keaton, who had a crush on her. Everything about Forrest irritates her, but after two random hookups, Penelope decides to take him up on his bang buddies offer.

Forest has always had a crush on P, but she was forever unavailable. Being shot down over and over again by her hardened Forest, and he began to resent her. Despite the hate, P has always been the one he can’t get out of his mind, and more or less starts off their no-strings relationship just to show her what she’d been missing out.

Despite the snark and sass — and there is a lot of it between these two — Carrie Aarons does a fantastic job of letting their vulnerable sides show through. And wow, did Forrest surprise me! I love how the idea of actually being with Penelope for real sneaks up on him and kind of blows him to his knees. He may be a cocky SOB, but when he gets around P, Forest is quite a nervous geek and it is absolutely charming!

Flutter is full of all the feels. Super sweet moments where both Penelope and Forrest let down their guards, and the pure animalistic moments of their hate-fueled friends with benefits arrangement.

Little about their relationship is conventional, and their proposal and marriage is just perfectly fitting! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
