Publisher's Summary

After his parents' death, Brody gave up a promising career to care for his family. Now, with his siblings grown, Brody owns his own business, and for the first time in years he's alone. Elise has come to Seattle with her daughter to find peace. After years as a world-famous ballerina - and trapped in a marriage gone bad - she's looking for neither love nor attention.

But she finds both in the handsome, honest man who befriends her with no strings attached. Brody and Elise discover in each other the wild, physical passion they need. But it'll take a shadow from Elise's past to make them look beyond what they need - to what they truly desire.

Critic Reviews

"This is a major 'feel good' book about two people rebounding from hard knocks without bitterness. It also comes with emotionally mature characters, palpable love and caring among family and friends, an adorable child and suspense." ( Romantic Times)

A NICE SENSITIVE (AND HOT) LISTEN

Definitely not quite as spicy as the first book - this one was more character driven with no sub plots or unanswered questions - just a steadily paced hot romance spanning well over a year between two very likeable people, and their families and friends with just one little hiccup. There are some bad memories, sexy hot scenes, a b*tch and dislikable in-laws that must be overcome before the couple can finally move on.

It also gives us a chance to catch up on the characters we grew to love from book 1 (if you've read it) and due to this there was a scene of m/m action then the pair were joined by their female partner.

Worth a credit? Yes, and I'm also looking forward to the next sibling's story.

Brody's Book Rocks!

I love this story and feeling like Brody gets his due....I love the way Lauren Dane has grown as an author, these are not just silly love stories. They have substance and are also sexy. Those who love the Chase brothers more I beg to differ....these books are much more than they are. I love the character and story continuation, I love the dialogue, you want to know these people. They are what family is all about. Thanks Lauren Dane for ramping it up to the next level! Can't wait for all the books (for the ereader and audible! - love them both!

WOW....Love this book!!

A woman who chose an abusive man but saved herself and her child. Now she does not trust herself when she is attracted to a man who rides a Harley and has tattoos. Can not wait for Cooper's book.

Coming Undone

Brody is probably my favorite of the Brown siblings because he just has such a HUGE heart.

It’s in everything he does and never expects anything in return. To him being able to be there for his family is all the thanks he ever needs.

So when Elise comes to his neighborhood he is kind of taken aback at how much he is drawn to her and her kid.

I love the tentative relationship they have at the beginning, but how much chemistry they have right from the get go.

This book is full of turmoil and swoony parts and holy freaking HOT parts.

I can’t even tell you how much this book makes my heart happy.

I am a Brody fan but I am a Brody and Elise fan more. They together fit and it’s a love story more people need to read especially if you are a romance fanatic like me.

Enjoyable

I loved Laid Bare and was really looking forward to the brother's story. While this book flowed well and kept me interested it wasn't as spicy as I was expecting. I'm not saying the writing was bad or the premise of the book sucked but I wasn't pulled into the story like I was with Erin's story. I definitely will be listening to the other sibling's book when available but I hope to have some spice in their stories.

Pretty Good

It's not in any way as good as the first book in this seires. If you like a regular love story then you'll enjoy this one. It has the characters from the first book but this one is Brody's story. It is nice and has issues for the characters to deal with and some mild sexual situations. All in all I'd rather get this one on sale. For those of you that like the regular love stories with modern day family problems (maybe extreme family problems) then you'll enjoy this one. I hope Adrian's story is more like the first book.This book is too tame for my taste, but it is a "nice" book.

Could Not Finish

This may be a decent story, but I'll never know because of the narration. At times, it felt like the narrator was channeling her inner William Shatner with all the pauses and emphasis where none was needed. Okay for Captain Kirk. Not okay for a romance novel. Gave up after six chapters.

Steamy!

Despite using a number of tried and true romantic tropes, Dane still manages to keep the characters interesting enough to carry along a story that is fairly predictable and sometimes a bit confusing. The addition of the sex is definitely a plus! Narrator did a great job!

It was good

This book was good - not great but I liked it. Tuff tattooed guy - sweet girl fall in love with crazy friends and family to hinder their relationship. Love, romance, and drama makes a good book . I enjoyed the narrator - she added a lot of emotion to the listen. Will probably get the next book in the series.
