THE OTHER BROTHER by Meghan Quinn is finally here!
I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.
There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?
I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.
Until I met my neighbor.
It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?
I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.
Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?
I’ve had a lot of fun with this series so far, and The Other Brother was yet another fantastic book by Meghan Quinn and the Binghamton gang. Again, let me tell you some things I absolutely loved, and what I wished was a little better.
♥ Aaron a.k.a. “Smalls”. Definitely the highlight of this book for me. He’s such a great character, and such a good guy too. He’s an awesome friend, great boyfriend, great person. I loved him!!!
♥ The romance. Look, I know the blurb points to a love triangle, and it kind of his. But it’s very well done, respectful, and no boundaries are crossed. Also, Aaron and Amelia belonged together, there was no doubt about that. (Also, I’m very glad with how Meghan Quinn wrote Trey).
♥ The writing, of course, this one is pretty obvious. But I really liked how Meghan gave us glimpses into Aaron and Amelia’s past together, because this amazing book is a second chance romance!!!
♥ AMANDA!!! Can we get a book about Amelia’s BFF?
♥ The conflict, and the depth of the feelings involved.
♦ I wanted more of the gang in this book. While Tucker makes some appearances, it bothered me a bit how absent he and Racer were from Aaron’s life. I wanted more interaction between the guys, their significant others and Aaron and Amelia. I felt like she could have used friends, and the girls would have been great for her.
♦ I loved this book in general, but I will admit that the plot was not exactly my cup of tea. I love second chance romances, and I’m very glad that the triangle was well written. But, this was a love triangle nonetheless, and with brothers to boot, so that makes me feel weird about it a tiny bit. Still, I loved this book…
Why? Why does he have to magically appear in my life? Moving back to Binghamton, I thought about the possibility of maybe running into him, but I thought it unlikely, something that would never really happen.
Boy, was I wrong.
What a sick joke life is playing on me.
Aaron Walters, the boy who broke me into pieces is my neighbor.
I can’t fathom the impact I feel already.
Seeing him in hip-hugging jeans and a tight, plain shirt did a number on me. It kept me up all night as memories of what we used to have flooded my mind.
The way he used to kiss my neck.
The way I felt so protected in his arms.
Too bad his arms couldn’t protect me from his devastating, heart-breaking self.
And hell, he looked good. Too good.
He’s always been tall with handsome features and a chiseled jaw, but now he’s bulked up to the point that I could see his abs flexing under his shirt, the same shirt that stretched over his biceps.
But it wasn’t his muscles or handsome features that once again made my heart ache, it was those eyes. So bright, so blue, so kind, but still so sad. It reminded me of the first day I met him, of the day he stole my heart from every other man on the market.
Broken, unsure, yet yearning for love. It was all there, and like experiencing a moment of déjà vu, I was transported back into a time when I felt invisible, like I could conquer anything with him at my side.
Once again, I was wrong.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
