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?
The Other Brother is both a heartbreaking and uplifting contemporary romance that will completely consume you from the start. I was sucked into the story from the first sentence of the Prologue and was taken on an emotional ride. I laughed. I teared up. My heart beat erratically and most importantly I absolutely fell in love with both Aaron and Amelia. I couldn’t have asked for anything more for their story. It was everything I wanted and everything I needed.
Now, before you get crazy, this isn’t a book that is just full of heartbreak and emotions. There is so much joy and laughter scattered throughout. I only say that it is heartbreaking because of my love for Aaron and it broke my heart seeing him so broken from his past. I say it is uplifting because we see the man he is meant to be and his love overall is the most precious gift anyone could ever be given.
It’s no secret that I like my jerky men and it takes a lot for me to be swept away by a sweet guy. I guess you can say that I like to torture myself. Who knows, but the moment I read how Aaron and Amelia met and every thing he says and does for her, I melted. Seriously melted. I can’t tell you how many times my heart raced and I got butterflies in my stomach from his words and actions. There has really only been one other sweet man that has stolen my heart and Aaron actually ended up with it.
I just adore Amelia. She’s a bit feisty but mostly she’s loyal and loves fiercely. It’s clear that she was never over Aaron but I liked how open and honest she was with him and how did gave him a run for his money. She is so carefree and wild when she is with him and it is exhilarating to see happen.
If you are looking for a second chance romance that will sweep you off your feet while pulling at your heart and your mind then entire time, then this is the book for you. It will make you feel and it will be worth it.
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.
