Brothers by blood, friends by choice.
I’m Tyson Caine, the oldest brother of three; I am their keeper, role model, watchful eye.
I’m also seventeen and in love with the most beautiful girl in the world. The hardest part is she’s my best friend and she doesn’t know I love her yet.
Should I risk our friendship for love?
Family Life is average, never a dull moment, especially with our three totally different personalities…
What will happen when chaos & turmoil are thrown upon us?
Can we keep our lifelong bond or will our connection be ripped apart?
Will the most sacred person to us, our mother, turn her back on us and walk away?
Can we unite and fight as one, or will the feud turn brother against brother..?
The fight has begun, can it be stopped before it turns into civil war and blood is shed?
I’m honestly starting to think that there’s something wrong with me, because for the love of everything holy, what the hell?!
I had really high hopes for this one, because the blurb sounded good, I like sports romances, and I do love a family oriented stories, but unfortunately this book didn’t work for me in any of those levels.
First, I was not a fan of the writing at all, it was very explanatory and expository, but I felt it lacked character and emotion. Maybe this contributed to the fact that I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. The story is told mainly from Tyson’s POV, with a few chapters from Brooklyn’s POV, and 2 chapters from Tyson’s brothers, Tyler and Tommy, which surprisingly were my favorite bits.
I felt like Tyson had potential as a character, because for once we didn’t have the “bad boy”, but he spent way too much time speaking ill of his brother and his choices, and defending his father from something that kind of made me sick. He tries to be the golden boy, but he WAS in fact a golden boy, and a very one dimensional one at that.
Brooklyn was another character that felt one dimensional, I mean, I understood that she was a tomboy and all, and that she dances, and that was about all I knew about her. She was also very judgmental, so in that sense she was perfect for Tyson.
I love BFFs to lovers romance… but again, it felt meh here, it was low drama, but then it had stupid drama, and they seemed way younger than their age sometimes… also, I can’t even with a couple of scenes between them. Just no. No development at all, they don’t discuss what will happen when she’ll move to NY at all, and time goes by way too fast.
The plot had a very important issue, that I thought would be properly developed and used, but it wasn’t, and I really hated the resolution. And then it just honestly made no sense to me.
Overall, this book just really wasn’t for me. I couldn’t find a single redeeming thing about it, which was unfortunate.
