I’ve loved him as long as I can remember. 

The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.


We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into a woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.

He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.

I married his brother, Kael.

Now we’re one big happy fucking family.



Mavs is annoying as hell. I HATE to be annoyed with the main character, especially throughout the entire book. I originally gave this book a 3 but I thought about it, even though I was irritated with the situation between Maverick, Killian & Kael. I kept coming back for more. I felt that pull to the story and I had to know if Maverick would make the right choice, pick the brother that was right for her.

I know the heart wants what the hearts wants, but when decision and choices are made you deal with it. 

Maverick was totally confused throughout most of the book. She had to deal with mixed signals, clouded judgement and denial of true feelings.

Killian did a selfless act but didn't really want to stick with his decision. Causing problems and disrespecting all involved.  

Kael may or may not have coveted his brother's lover.....he has always considered Maverick his even when she wasn't. His love for her is complete and unconditional.

This book has the disclaimer of no cheating, there is no physical cheating but I felt there was emotional cheating. It will make you scream.........enough already!!! But I still will give it a 4 because I felt compelled to see how things ended. BTW, I really liked the epilogue. Great HEA!!


I’m just a regular ol’ Midwest girl who likes Game of Thrones and am obsessed with Modern Family and The Goldbergs. I run, I eat, I run, I eat. It’s a vicious cycle. I love carbs, but there’s love-hate relationship with my ass and thighs. Mostly hate. I like a good cocktail (oh hell…who am I kidding? I love any cocktail). I’m a huge creature of habit, but I’ll tell you I’m flexible. I read every single day and if I don’t get a chance…watch the hell out, I’m a raving bitch. My iPad and me: BFFs. I’m direct and I make no apologies for it. I swear too much. I love alternative music and in my next life I want to be a bad-ass female rocker. I hate, hate, hate spiders, telemarketers, liver, acne, winter and loose hairs that fall down my shirt (don’t ask, it’s a thing).
