Blurb:

Moving in with my half-brother Xander, I had no idea what to expect.
But nothing could have prepared me for this.
My brother’s friends are wild, protective, secretive, always around.
And drop dead gorgeous.
Out of all of them, there’s something about Reid Knox.
Brooding, temperamental, guarded…
And I want him more than anything I have ever wanted in my life.

Review:

SO-MANY-ALPHA-MALES-I-CAN’T-SEE-STRAIGHT!

Reid… Scarred, sexy, tall, blonde, blue eyed but he also comes with a lot of baggage. This might put you off but he’s temperamental, confusing and frustrating to the point that you just want to strangle him! He goes hot/cold and gives mixed signals. Reid has a lot of flaws and it’s either you love him or hate his guts but for some reason, it was hard to remain too angry with him. He does or say something that melts my heart and made me want to crawl all over his body.

“Are you going to kiss me?” I whisper, arrested in his blue gaze.“I don’t think that’s a good idea,” he whispers back, his eyes dropping to my mouth.“Good ideas are overrated,” I say breathily.

Summer… Big brown eyes, huge tits, tiny waist and a round ass. To sum this all up our heroine is a stunner. First half of the book, I actually like Summer- she’s opinionated, feisty, hard headed but behind this is a vulnerable-weak woman. She doesn’t play mind games like some heroines out there. Maybe one thing that I didn’t appreciate was she forgives Reid soooo easily. I wanted to see more groveling in his part but hey… I’m not judging here.. I guess if I have Reid as my own begging for my forgiveness, I will probably forgive and forget and do make-up sex all night long!

“I think he’s doing enough fighting for other people, Sum, maybe he needs someone to fight for him,”

The plot might not be original but the twist and secrets made the story more intruiging and enjoyable to read. Everyone was tip toeing around Summer which kinda frustrate me. I didn’t know what the hell was going on and I’m not good in guessing so I’ve been itching to know what was the damn secrets!

When finally everything was revealed.. I was not that surprised. I’m not disappointed at all but I was hoping it’s a big mind blowing thing ya’ know? But what I liked in this story is that on each revelation, you discover another new secret that you want to unravel…

“You’re it for me,” he finally says.
“I’m not gonna give up on you, ever.”

I wouldn’t say this is the best book ever or that I love everything about it. Because it’s not. There were too many characters that I somewhat couldn’t keep up. The pacing of the story was way too fast.

“It means I’m sure Reid likes anything you like, or at least pretends to. Hell, if you were mine, I’d play that stupid game, too, just to see you smile.”

There were so many protective alpha males in this story that I couldn’t see straight! lol! To be honest, at first I had a hard time remembering all of them to the point that I even wrote down all their names, what they look like etc…by the end of the book, I know them all like the back of my hand! hahaha! Reid, Ryan, Xander, Dash, Tag, Silas and Jack OMFGjorkillmenow!!! Don’t judge me but I’m interested to know more about Jack!! I know he’s old and cheated but I find him so sexy! I want him. O__O

Despite me ranting about the paced and too many characters, I loved all the characters in this book. Even though it’s a very fast paced, you can’t help but love them all.. well.. except for Mia. I hate that bitch but her presence added some spice in the story.

“Did you see her? She’s fucking hot!”
Reid laughs. “Not as hot as you, baby, trust me.”
It’s true. Love is blind

Overall I love it but I’m not in love with it. I think it’s a good start for a great series. I’m a big fan of Chandal Fernando and been stalking her ever since I read Resisting Love series! This author never fail to write some Alpha, possessive cavemen heroes!

I highly recommend this book if you want a quick sexy read with possessive alpha males!!!

Next book is Ryan’s story. OMG! Did anyone see that coming?! The manwhore is freaking AFKJIDONTWANTTOPUTANYMORESPOILERYOUHAVETOREADTHEBOOK!!! Eeeeek! I’m so excited!!!
