Your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life, right? That’s what they say, at least. I went into that day hoping I’d get the happiest day of my life. What I got? The worst. I mean, you really can’t get any worse of a day without someone actually dying.
So…I may have gotten just a little drunk, and maybe just a tad impetuous…
And landed myself in a dive bar somewhere in Alaska, alone, still in my wedding dress, half-wasted and heart-broken.
Eight brothers, one bar.
Sounds like the beginning to a bad joke, yeah?
I kinda think so.
Wanna hear another joke? A girl walks into a bar, soaking wet and wearing a wedding dress.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. She was hammered, for one thing, and heartbroken for another. I’ve chased enough tail to know better. That kinda thing only leads to clinginess, and a clingy female is the last thing on this earth I need.
I got a bar needs running, and only me to run it—at least until my seven wayward brothers decide to show their asses up…
Then this chick walks in, fine as hell, wearing a soaked wedding dress that leaves little enough to the imagination—and I’ve got a hell of an imagination.
I knew I shouldn’t have touched her. Not so much as a finger, not even innocently.
But I did.
For whatever reason, it’s been a long time since I read a Jasinda Wilder book and I forgot how intense the emotions are in her books.
Sebastian is pretty much a caveman…he’s not very talkative, relying on grunts as his answers most of the time; refusing to acknowledge any emotions at all and having any conversations physically in the bedroom. He’s a really good guy and a family man once you knock down the abrasive, caveman walls he’s built. Because we don’t really get to know him too well outside his family loyalties and his gentleman ways with women, I don’t feel a big connection to him.
Dru is as big a ‘bad mothercker’ as Sebastian is. She can be just as ‘caveman-y’ as he is and just as abrasive. She’s strong and independent. Her knee-jerk reactions to everything rival Sebastian’s which may make conversation difficult between them. She’s been hurt pretty badly in her life and built up some strong walls as well which takes the big badd Sebastian to knock down. They are essentially a match made perfectly for each other.
This is definitely erotica and some of the language was pretty vulgar – the use of pssy, cnt and various words for the male anatomy thrown around liberally, so if you can’t handle that this is not the book for you. I cringed a few times at the vulgarity of it.
I had one issue with the book but it’s a bit of a spoiler I’m not including it here. Please view my review on Goodreads if you need the spoiler.
I have to say I’m pretty hooked on this series already and am anxious to read every book about the other brothers. They each seem to have completely distinct personalities and stories to tell. It looks like Zane’s book will be next as we get some foreshadowing at the end of this one.
