    Like so many other “romance novels” written by women, the plot is just a sketchy set-dressing for — what? Endless sex scenes? That’s one option, and one I find boring. This book escapes that, but goes for the other almost-as-boring option: hemming and hawing. Should he? Should she? The sex scenes were tender and nice. And thankfully, not the main point of the story. But the endless quavering got tiresome. And the very promising plot suddenly evaporates, about a third of the way from the end, so it seems almost like the popular fairy tale paradigm: someone waves a magic wand, and they live happily ever after. Very unlikely, given the villain of the piece. For a group of supposedly invincible testosterone junkies, the bumbling brothers do a piss-poor job of protecting Our Heroine. And so many things strained belief: They rescue her from horror, she’s reeling from her ordeal, yet they seem to leave her on her own a lot, so she can be vulnerable and open to attack. Her first outing as a driver is to talk to a therapist about her ordeal — and they let her drive herself, when she’s prone to flashbacks of her trauma, and panic-induced hallucinations. They are never there for her, which is odd considering the sudden lame fairy-tale ending. It also suffers from empire building. This is book one of a series — ah for the good old days when not every book had to be a series. You get a lot of characters introduced — six sons/brothers? Really? They’re engaging, but their interactions are cliché: hugging while punching, calling each other names, etc. Yes, we get it — they’re uber-jocks. And you have pointless characters, like Rusty, whose only purpose seems to point us toward a future entry in the series when it will be her turn. I’m not wasting any more time on this book or this ‘series.''
