The last thing Brett Ross wants is to be back in the same old damn small town he grew up in, but his best friend is getting married, so there’s no way he’s skipping yet another visit back home. He knows what he’s getting into, coming back here, but the one thing he didn’t count on was the way Anna Hamilton made him feel the first time he sets eyes on her…and she’s all grown up.Anna’s always been in love with Brett, even if she’s always been his best friend’s annoying little sister to him. But when he looks at her, she doesn’t see annoyance in his eyes anymore. If anything, she sees a silent calling for her to save him from himself…and she’s just the girl to do it. All she needs is to find a way to escape her pesky, protective older brothers… And then the game is on.


Captain's Log :: Review

Three star review:

I really wanted to like this story. It is one of my favorite tropes so I went in with some expectations. They all fell a little flat, though.

I like the couple. I liked their secrecy. I liked their outcome.

I didn't like a lot of the violence with the brothers. I didn't like how overprotective they were over her because it was completely without merit. They were really just d*cks.

I didn't like the constant back and forth from Brett. I will. Nope, I won't. Oh, I just can't help myself. OH I HAVE TO RESTRAIN MYSELF. Good, lord that was a lot to handle. 

Anna, on the other hand, knew exactly what she wanted. She was out to get it, too. But with all the road blocks and mixed signals Brett was putting out, it's a miracle they ended up with an HEA.

The writing was really good but a lot of the story just didn't sit well with me.
