Love Brewing (Love Brothers #3)
Genre: M/F, Contemporary Romance

Their epic clashes are the stuff of family legend. But they have made peace and work side by side to take Love Brewing to the next level of success.
Until Dominic does the one thing his father can never forgive.
Diana Brantley has been Dominic’s friend, girlfriend and ex-girlfriend so many times she’s lost count. When he shows up at the farm she’s slowly transforming into a wildly popular farm-to-table resource for restaurants all over the U.S. her first impulse is to shoot first and ask questions later. But she doesn’t. And their lives entwine once more, for good, bad and ugly.
My Review: 4.5/5 Stars
Love Brewing was a fricking emotional rollercoaster.
Dominic and Diana have a long history together and most of it isn’t good. Dominic is at a time in his life where he volatile, not knowing what he wants.
In my head I was rooting for him and Kent and I was a little sad when they weren’t the ones to get their happily ever after, but I’m still glad that Dom got his.
Loving Brewing is filled with lies, betrayal, heartache and love. I don’t even know how it contained all that. It grabbed your attention and kept you wanting to know what Dom did and was going to do.
I have also come to realize there is a lot of flipping cheating in this series. What is wrong with these Love men?
I wonder who the next book will be about.
Love Brothers Series
Love Garage (Love Brothers #1)
Antony Love is the quintessential responsible oldest brother of a boisterous, Italian/Irish family, placed in charge at a young age by his parents who are busy running the family business. He manages his siblings with a fair but iron hand, until his life is shattered by personal tragedy leaving him the shell of the man he once was.
When outspoken matriarch Lindsay Halloran Love becomes ill, the youngest brother Aiden shows up at Antony’s garage, having dropped out of school (again), needing work and a place to crash. Antony provides both, with three caveats: “Don’t smoke in my truck, don’t be late for work, and don’t mess with my girlfriend.” But Aiden Love, budding novelist, gets one glimpse of Rosalee Norris, young widow of Antony’s lifelong best friend and all bets are off. Set in horse country near Lexington, Kentucky, The Love Brothers Series is a saga of family devotion that runs as wide and deep as the Ohio River–except on Sundays when brothers Antony, Kieran, Dominic and Aiden work out their frustrations on the basketball court, Love brother style.
My Review: 4/5 Stars
OMG if there isn’t a lot of drama in this series! I love it!
Aiden is considered the screw up in the family. He has come back home and looks to his brother Antony to help him.
Rosie has lost her husband and has started to move on with Antony, but everything changed when Aiden stepped on the scene.
This book has so many twist and turns it isn’t even funny. There was so much sneaking around that when Antony’s daughter dropped her bombshell, I was completely shock and I knew I shouldn’t be.
The chemistry between Aiden and Rosie was amazing, though I think they should have went about their relationship in a totally different way, but like Selena Gomez song says “the heart wants, what the heart wants.”
Safe Love (Love Brothers #1.5)
Antony Ian Love has a lot on his ample shoulders. He owns and runs a small business, is estranged from his teenaged daughter AliceLynn, his beloved mother is dying of cancer, and he’s come face to face with his youngest brother Aiden’s sudden reappearance into the Love family circle. Years of sublimating his true self in deep mourning for his long dead wife have hardened the surly, emotional shell he’s nurtured, but one woman seems to have broken through. Rosalee Norris is the young widow of Antony’s best friend Paul and their mutual sorrow and close friendship has slowly morphed into something more.
Family therapist and recent divorcee Margot Hamilton is dropped into the close-knit Love family by necessity but fate has a real design twist in mind. With her heart and mind closed to anything resembling an emotional connection, Margot is shocked to discover something about Antony the very first time they meet–something she tries, and fails, to resist.
SAFE LOVE, The Love Brothers novella is a tale of love’s realistic complications within the saga of family devotion that runs as wide and deep as the Ohio River–except on Sundays when brothers Antony, Kieran, Dominic and Aiden work out their frustrations on the basketball court, Love brother style.

Genera: Contemporary Romance,

COACH LOVE, book 2 of The Love Brothers, a family saga of sibling loyalty that runs as deep and wide as the Ohio River—at least until Sunday, when Antony, Kieran, Dominic and Aiden work out their frustrations at the weekly Love brother pick-up basketball game.
My Review: 4/5 Stars
Coach Love was fast paced and attention grabbing.
For Cara, Kieran is the one who got away, but it was her own fault.
Kieran is back and town and he doesn’t plan on sleeping with Cara, but one drunken night leads to one thing and bam! All of his feelings come rushing back, if they ever left. But she is do to marry someone else.
This story as the first one was intense and drama filled. But in a good way, it kept you guessing as to who would betray who and to what will happen next. It sure kept me guessing.
I will say one thing mamma Love knew who was right for her children, if only they would have listened to her from the start.
