New Adult/Adult Romance
Releasing January 20, 2015
I grew up with three brothers. They weren’t tied to me by blood, but our connection went beyond genetics or bearing the same last name. Our connection was forged the summer I turned thirteen, the summer my mom ended her life and left me in the custody of John Armstrong, a man I’d never met. Packing all I owned in a couple of boxes, I left the familiarity of the big city and headed west to Red Mountain Ranch, set in a lonely valley outside of Jackson Hole.
Nothing was as it seemed at Red Mountain—it didn’t take long for me to figure that out. John was kind to me but distant, as if he was afraid to let anyone get too close. His three teenage sons had their own devices for keeping love as far away as they could. The eldest distracted himself with cheap relationships that had a shelf-life of one night. The middle son threw himself into the rigor of running a ranch, and the third wielded cruelty and mind-games in his quest to keep people from getting close.
Time has gone by, and I’ve spent those years trying to forget the brother I’d fallen for—the biggest mistake of my life.
Finally, I’ve moved on. Finally, I’m back. But what I didn’t realize was that running away from the wrong brother meant I’d also run away from the right one. The one who’d been there for me all along, waiting in his brother’s shadow for the day I either would or could move on.
But a decade is a long time to wait. Has the brother I should have chosen all of those years ago moved on too? Am I about to discover that my biggest mistake wasn’t falling in love with the wrong brother, but failing to return the love of the right one sooner?
Does unrequited love have an expiration date?
I’m about to find out.
Author’s Note: This book is a "sweet" romance that isn't overly sexy. Fans of LOST & FOUND will be interested in THREE BROTHERS.
About the Author
I’m the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of the CRASH series (HarperTeen, S&S UK), LOST & FOUND series, UP IN FLAMES (S&S UK), The EDEN TRILOGY, and a handful of others. I write stories about everyday kinds of people who find themselves in extraordinary kinds of situations. I tell love stories with happy endings because I believe in making the world a better place, and that’s one tiny way I can make it so. I’m one of those people who still believe in true love and soul mates, and would rather keep my head in the clouds any day over having my feet firmly on the ground.
I’ve always been fond of reading books by Nicole Williams. After reading her Lost & Found and Crash series it has been a done deal, she’s one of my favorite author of all time. I don’t know why but she has this certain voice that works really well with me. One might contest me on this but she has this way of writing her characters to be relatable and real. Being a fan of her writing and her storytelling I didn't miss the chance of reading her latest book; Three Brothers.
Three Brothers is somehow very different from the usual Nicole Williams genre that I know. I can consider this book as a light romance, rather than new adult. It’s kind of refreshing and confusing on the same time because you tend to get used to her writing and now she’s venturing into something very new to me. I liked it at some point of the book but you get to miss the fact that it’s not what you were looking for.
Three Brothers is a story of a girl named Scout and the Armstrong brothers – she went back to Red Mountain Ranch with the request of Chance to see his father’s last living days. Being at Red Mountain Ranch brought up her old childhood memories. How close she was with the Armstrong brothers. Seeing each brother grown up, will she also know the feelings one of the brothers have with her for the longest time?!
A story of a family brought back together by a dying father. First it will make you smile and at the end it will let you cry. I find the story very light at first then it got heavy towards the ending. I don’t know how to put it but you might think I’m criticizing this book but as a reader, it was really hard to understand the story. I got confused at the part where she introduced herself, who she was, what happened, why she was returning. It seems like it lacked the proper introduction of characters. I don’t really need synopsis so consider diving into this book not knowing anything.
Character wise I think they were establish properly at some point. I guess I was kind of confused who is who because of the lack of proper introduction. Story wise, for me it’s kind of confusing. I tried to learn their names has special meaning to the story. Chase, Chance and Conn; the Armstrong brothers. Each of them has their own characteristic. Chase is such a sweet guy, I’m happy he found love with the cute little wolf. Chance is very romantic, he’s one brother that I’m rooting for Scout. Conn is an epitome of douchebaggery. Overall character wise this story has its own set of good characters, it was just the introduction and getting used to the characters got me so confused.
Overall fans of Nicole Williams will definitely like this! I recommend this book if you like Lost & Found. It has it’s similarities but this one is kind of toned down with the sexiness which I was looking for. It takes time to get into the story but in the end you’ll definitely love it.
