Jessica Channing’s big city life should be more exciting than sixty-hour work weeks and popcorn nights with her girlfriends, but it’s not. She has worked hard fulfilling her role as a child prodigy and graduating college years before her peers. She’s the good girl, the brilliant girl.
Unfortunately, she’s also the dateless young woman.
That all changes with one phone call. Jess’s rigid, predictable life upends when she must visit a small, obscure town to deal with a relative’s death. This isn’t just any little speck of a town, though. Long lost memories come crashing down on Jess’s world when two men, the Blackard brothers, seem to lure her in.
Dylan is cover model handsome, and pursues Jess the minute she comes to town. Then there is tall, dark and gorgeous Carson, who hides his own secrets behind his hardened reserve.
For someone who has been governed by her own obsessive behaviors and fears, Jess lets her guard down and jumps at the opportunity to have an affair with a man she actually finds attractive for a change.
There’s just one problem. Jess discovers that she can’t have a simple romantic fling because true passion does indeed come with some very big strings attached to it. She will have to own up to her own truths about love and face the two extraordinary men; both troubled in their own ways and both determined to have her.
Jessica grew up with prodigies for parents and an excellent education, which helped her secure a job in technology. But because of that her personal life was lacking. All that changes when she finds out her great aunt passed away. She always thought there was no else still living in her family besides her less than stellar parents. Now she has to go to the small town of Hera, NY to figure out what to do with the estate. When she gets there she meets two brothers, Dylan and Carson.
“Dylan is a dream guy for any woman, even me, but if you want to amp it up and make it more interesting with a guy who’s complex and intellectually challenging my bet is on Carson.”
As it turns out, Jess knew them from a summer she spent with her great aunt when she was younger. She also may or may not have promised one of the boys she’d marry him one day.
“You can be quite a nasty boy when you want, but someday if you’re nice, I’ll marry you.”
From the minute Jess met Carson he was a jerk. Dylan was sweet and fun loving and the brother most women should go for. Jess knew from the beginning which brother she wanted to be with but wasn’t sure which one she should be with.
“I’ve only just met him, however, this feels good and it seems right.”
The bad part about it is that no matter who she chose she was coming between two brothers. Will Jess leave the mess she created behind and go back to the city? Or will she stay in Hera and figure it out?
“I don’t want you for one night. I want you for every night.”
What a tangled web we weave! From the beginning I knew which brother I wanted Jess to be with but I honestly wasn’t sure how it would play out. I know that some people may think she was wrong for the way she went about things but sometimes people need to make mistakes and figure things out for themselves. Even if it causes others pain.
“I’ve never broken anyone’s heart.”
“Yes, you have.”
Everyone who knows me knows that I love angst and love triangles. I was honestly expecting a little more drama especially because this particular triangle had two brothers attached to it. However, I did enjoy the story and was able to finish it in a few hours. Go meet Carson & Dylan and tell me which brother you picked!
“You’re the first man I have ever been in love with.”
“I’m also the last.”
