Severine Blake has seen far too many friends taken down in the crossfires of dating. She devises a precise course of action to protect her heart. The plan is working very well...until she meets Thayer and Macsen.

When the Sloan brothers come into her life, nothing is the same.

Thayer is self-possessed, arrogant and used to getting what he wants. Being near him leaves Severine unsteady and shaken. He makes her question everything.

Macsen contradicts his brother in every way. His calm personality captivates her. Severine is drawn to him instantly.

But Severine quickly discovers that when you want something, that want can turn wicked. Giving in is not always easy, especially when your heart refuses to give up the fight.

What little illusion of love Severine has is soon destroyed. Every option is broken, and the protection she has built around her heart instantly crumbles.

There's just no right way with the Sloan brothers.

It’s never easy to write a review about a book you like but had issues that couldn’t be ignored.  I want to give every book 5 star reviews but that’s not fair to the readers or the authors.  I loved this book.  No I loved the story in the book.  I did not like the writing style.  My biggest issue was with the dialogue.  The conversations were stilted, un-natural.  Sometimes someone would say something that didn’t seem to fit with the conversation.  I was left reading backwards trying to figure out what I missed.  Did I miss something did the author, was it my copy of the book?  In the end I realized it was the way it was written.

I really liked Severine.

I even liked Thayer and Macsen.

“I saw you first,” he rasped out deeply. “Remember that. I saw you first.”

This wasn’t your usual love triangle.

These were brothers!

“Maybe me and you together is too much.[…] But I think that maybe…maybe together, we could blow everything else away.”

 

I started out rooting for one and ended up rooting for the other.  I didn’t know who I wanted her to end up with!

“But this feeling with him…Severine closed her eyes and drank the moment in. Some things didn’t come naturally for Severine. Yet, right now, it all flowed perfectly. This moment was written before it had ever begun. It was meant for her.”

So if you can look past the dialogue/editing issues and you’re up for some Sloan brothers then this book is for you.  I’m excited to read the next book.  No cliffhanger either!  This one will give you closure yet leave you anxious to read the next book.
