About the Book

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?

Excerpt

Why? Why does he have to magically appear in my life? Moving back to Binghamton, I thought
about the possibility of maybe running into him, but I thought it unlikely, something that would never
really happen.
Boy, was I wrong.
What a sick joke life is playing on me.
Aaron Walters, the boy who broke me into pieces is my neighbor.
I can’t fathom the impact I feel already.

Seeing him in hip-hugging jeans and a tight, plain shirt did a number on me. It kept me up all night
as memories of what we used to have flooded my mind.
His voice.
His stature.
The way he used to kiss my neck.
The way I felt so protected in his arms.
Too bad his arms couldn’t protect me from his devastating, heart-breaking self.
And hell, he looked good. Too good.

He’s always been tall with handsome features and a chiseled jaw, but now he’s bulked up to the
point that I could see his abs flexing under his shirt, the same shirt that stretched over his biceps.
But it wasn’t his muscles or handsome features that once again made my heart ache, it was those
eyes. So bright, so blue, so kind, but still so sad. It reminded me of the first day I met him, of the day hestole my heart from every other man on the market.

Broken, unsure, yet yearning for love. It was all there, and like experiencing a moment of déjà vu, I
was transported back into a time when I felt invisible, like I could conquer anything with him at my side.

Once again, I was wrong.

My Review

* 5 So-What stars * 

Meghan Quinn has been officially crowned the "Quinn of romance" in my book because once again she delivered a FANTASTICALLY BEAUTIFUL love story that made me fell in love, HARD.

"The harder you love, the harder you fall."

I've had the luxury of reading both My Best Friend's Ex (Tucker and Emma's story) and Twisted Twosome (Racer and Georgie's story), and if there's anything to be expected of Quinn's works, you can surely count on three things - humor, romance, and LOADS AND LOADS OF SNACKS. In this case, the spotlight was passed down from Little Debbies to Nirchi's Buffalo Chicken Pizza and it still amazes me how food can have such a significant role in a romance novel, heck, it even felt like a real character! Also, who doesn't love a girl who loves her food? *high five gurlll!*

The Other Brother was Aaron's aka "Smalls" story. Among the trio, Aaron was the calm and collected one, the one who will always stick by you no matter the circumstances, but his background remained a mystery and little was known about his history...until now. And it washeartbreakingly beautiful. I loved Tucker's big heart and Racer's unabashed sense of humor, but what I did not expect was to be consumed by Aaron so wholly, I didn't think I'd crawled out of the book alive. Not to mention, I was a huge sucker for second-chance romance (or third chance in this rare case), and The Other Brother was every bit of perfect.

Smalls, ironic to his built physique and bigger than life kind heart, didn't grow up with a beautiful family. Always compared to his biological brothers who were given away for adoption for a better life, he grew up with the notion that he wasn't good enough, and that insecurity bled into his adult life to the point where he let go of hisforever so that she could thrive and not being weighed down by someone like him.

"I’ve always been the other. The other friend, the other employee… the other brother. For once in my life, I want to be the only.”

But fate has other plans when Amelia stumbled back into his life years later and ended up living as his next-door-neighbor - the one he let go, the one that got away. As if fighting the old feelings weren't hard enough and having her treat you like a stranger wasn't a painful reminder of what he had lost, but the final nail in the coffin? She is dating his other brother - the better brother - the one he was constantly measured up to. Yet for once, he has every intention of winning her back and claims what was rightfully his all along - Amelia.
 

I've loved and cried and hurt for Aaron, but most of all, I was happy that he finally got the happily ever after he deserves. 

P.S. I don't know how, but Aaron has become my favorite brother. I couldn't get enough!! Now that the trio's story is completed, what's next?

About the Author


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!
