I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It's been three years since I'd seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

I was a little way into this book before I realised Aaron was Smalls who I met in My Best Friend's Ex! The world seemed familiar and as soon as Tucker and Emma made an appearance it all clicked for me! Smalls (Aaron) has been a character that I've been eager to meet, because I knew there would be more to his broody behaviour. Amelia is that reason and the story behind them broke my heart!

Aaron had a rough childhood, and couldn't understand why he was the one chosen to have nothing. He was such a sweet and caring guy and everything that he did made me love him more. He was good to his mother, even though she wasn't the most stable parent. He treated Amelia like a queen, and wanted the best for her. However he was willing to sacrifice his heart to push her to succeed. Now that Amelia was back he was willing to be patient and determined to keep her.

Amelia had returned to Binghamton to spend more time with her ailing father. What she didn't expect was to move in next door to her ex. It was difficult in the beginning, but I could see her feelings were resurfacing, and it felt good to be around Aaron. Her relationship with Trey was becoming increasingly difficult, and I could feel that she was struggling with both guys and her future.

I liked how this story gave us glimpses into Aaron and Amelia's past; how he won her over and how intense their relationship was. I knew how badly Aaron struggled, but he was the type of guy who kept his past hidden and got lost in his girl. Amelia was a carefree kind of girl, but their split crushed her spirit and she found it hard to let people in. I loved the mature people they had grown into and how they were able to work through all their issues to strengthen their connection once more.

I really enjoyed The Other Brother and the way Meghan Quinn brought Aaron's story to life! Amelia was the perfect match for him and it was beautiful to see them reconnect. It was a fabulous story of second chances; the lengths that one may go to so they can see the person they love more than life succeed. But more importantly that these two soul mates may have had time apart, but were destined to find forever together!!

Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

I could just FEEL how much Aaron loved Amelia in the first one. The second, you can see the restraint and patience that he's had, waiting for her, is starting to falter!

With my hand still on her chin, I look her square in the eyes. “Despite everything that happened between us, I did and always will do anything for you, and I mean fucking anything. You matter to me, more than you’ll ever understand.”

“Amelia,” he warns again. “Say goodnight.” “No.” “Yes, this isn’t the time—” “Shut up, Aaron.” I pull him closer to me and place my lips on his. At first he goes stiff in my arms—perhaps out of disbelief that I’m actually kissing him—but once my tongue moves across his lips, he parts his mouth and melts into our connection, his body softening, his restraint no longer in check.

Originally inspired by YA Bound
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
