I love, love, love the Badd brothers. I mean this is just the second release, but that's all it takes for them to capture your heart. Sexy, strong alphas with a sweet and tender side, what more could you want?
Mara and Zane both come from the military, so to me that was the first obvious attraction. Who can get you more than someone who knows where you've been and what it's like? Of course, attraction and chemistry are important for a good romance, but I got so much more out of this story than the, "Holy Hell! Give me a Badd brother!" That's why I loved this book so much. I love that the characters were realistic. Maybe not in the same sense as some, but for many they were. I mean who falls in love after a couple of dates? They thought about it and were logically for what is the so called normal of the world. Which makes you know that it's okay to have doubts and it's okay to go against the norm sometimes.
I also loved the friendship of Mara and Claire. I know that's not the point of the book, but if I was an author, I would hope that people were able to look at different aspects to get different feelings. Mara and Claire had been best friends for years. They served in the military together and even had a nickname for their friendship. Even though they knew what the other one was thinking before they said it, they didn't know every single thing about each other. The past didn't matter to them. It didn't make them think they didn't trust each other or were hiding things. They were best friends, had each others best intentions in mind and always had each others backs. That's true friendship right there and it isn't something you can find very often.
A group of sexy alpha brothers, a crazy pair of best friends, and some crazy hot chemistry. What more do you need from a book?
