About ‘The Other Brother’ by Meghan Quinn:

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?

‘The Other Brother’ by Meghan Quinn book review:

Meghan Quinn is an author that I only recently discovered, but as soon as I did I read through several of her books in just a few days. Co-Wrecker, My Best Friend’s Ex, and Twisted Twosome are all about the same group of friends (although not technically a series), with The Other Brother being the latest addition.

Every book about this group has been hilarious and is perfect for those days when you really need a story that’s going to pick you up. In addition to making the reader laugh non-stop, they’re also sure to make them swoon.

“’Eh, what?’ I ask, looking at the very tall man, hoping and praying I’m not forming some gross double chin form the backed-away angle I’m at.”

Like her other books, the relationship in The Other Brother doesn’t come easy for the couple. Once upon a time, Aaron and Amelia were each other’s first loves – but when things ended they ended badly. Now that they’re back in each other’s lives they have to deal with the fact that neither of them really moved on.

When Amelia has to move back into town, both are surprised to find out that they’re new neighbors. Even though Amelia has a boyfriend, she can’t seem to shake out all of the emotions that seem to hit her whenever Aaron is around. And Aaron doesn’t make it a secret either that he wants Amelia back.

“Amelia Santos was the best thing to ever happen to me, and yet, she was also the worst. During a time when my heart broke from every uncaring glance my mom, Amelia resurrected me from the ashes I would have otherwise drowned in. She was my rock, the one solid feature in my life. She was also my downfall.”

Before the characters can resolve their feelings for each other, though, they both have some things to deal with. Amelia has to come to terms with the fact that she’ll never get over Aaron and the future she was planning with her boyfriend doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

Meanwhile, Aaron has to learn to open up about his past and how it’s still affecting him. Even though Aaron is a walking wet dream, he’s constantly feeling as though he’s not worthy of anyone attention let alone Amelia.

“My stomach feels weird all of a sudden. And then I realize the problem. No matter how much I want to deny what I might be feeling, deep down, I still have feelings for Aaron. I never got over him. I don’t think I ever will.”

The Other Brother was an absolute delight to read, it makes me want to read the books for all of Aaron’s friends all over again now that his story has been added to mix!
