When Levi’s new job puts him in Thane’s path, their chemistry explodes, but their fear of being involved in relationships keeps them apart. Unfortunately, despite the intense desire drawing them together, neither man can move forward until they get past their own…Reservations.

4.5 Stars

I’ll start by saying, this could have been a five star read for me, but unfortunately my dislike for Thane throughout the first 60 or so percent of the story, along with a few other issues, diminished my enjoyment of the story.

Thane was a spoiled, rich, pompous twatwaffle, and that’s keeping my opinion of him PG’ish rated and not voicing what I’d really like to call him. He thought his money could buy him anything he wanted, including Levi. It was all very Pretty Womanish, well, minus the fact that Levi is NOT in any way, shape or form a sex worker of any kind, something Thane couldn’t seem to get through his thick skull no matter how many times Levi and Julian reiterated this fact to him, but that’s just the vibe I got from the arrangement Thane wanted.

Levi, on the other hand, was such an amazing guy. A second year medical school student, who was forced to quit school and come back home to raise his teenage brothers when his father loses his battle with cancer, was sweet and caring and nurturing when it came to taking care of his brothers. They were his main focus in life and I had so much respect for him regarding his handling of this situation. I loved watching the three brothers interact together. The love they felt for each other was clear to see. They stuck together and were there for one another no matter what.

Now, on to Thane and Levi: The chemistry between them was undeniable and out of this world. Even when Thane was being a complete twat, the connection between them was so strong, sparks practically flew off the pages at you. And the sex, oh good god was the sex smoking hot and plentiful, almost to the point of labeling this an erotic read. Honestly, when there is too much sex in a book I tend to start skimming, but it was so amazing I ate up every moment they were together in bed. *fans self*

The story was enjoyable, but it was, in my opinion at least, unnecessarily long. I thought the story could have been tightened up and told just a portion of the length that it was. It was well-written, but for as long as it was, there was one very important scene that was missing. Something happens in the last 10% of the book and the resolution to the situation is told from Levi’s POV, while Thane is handling the matter, and I really wish the author had presented them as a united front and had the reader present for the scene. Not being able to see the scene play out felt very anticlimactic to me and I was disappointed. Another thing that bothered me was that although Thane is only 3 years older than Levi, the age difference felt much larger. Thane came off as much older than his 29 years, and I really wish they had felt closer together in age. I had to keep reminding myself that there was only a 3 year age difference between them and it was a bit distracting.

All in all, although long, this was still an enjoyable and smoking hot read that I’d definitely recommend!

I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.
