When running isn’t the answer,

Cait O’Kelley loved Bryce Delaney with all her heart. But loving him scared the hell out of her. She didn’t want to settle for being married to a cop and having his children. She wanted more. Unfortunately, more came with a price. After leaving her small home town for more glamorous life and working her way up the corporate ladder, a whirlwind affair with the boss’s son tears her world apart. On the brink of losing everything she’s worked for, she had to make a decision.

and going back seems impossible,

After eight years of living without her, Bryce finds himself tasked with the job of watching over Cait during her week long stay at her parent’s beach house in Bethany. She’s come there to sort her life out and while she’s contemplating her future, they discover the fireworks are still there. But can they ever go back to where they once were? As his secrets begin to surface, he sees only one way to save her. He disappears without a trace leaving Cait behind to pick up the pieces and deal with a whole host of new problems. One of which she can’t explain away or hide.

can you find middle ground?

With Bryce out of the picture, his brother, Kurt, finds what he’s wanted a lifetime handed to him on a silver platter. After watching Cait and Bryce toy with each other for fifteen years, he steps up to the plate. He’s always wanted her and now is his chance. But is he strong enough to ground Cait and keep her from making yet another mistake? Which brother will win her heart and show her that a slower lower love is enough?

Brandi’s Review:

Do you know what I liked most about this book? Probably not, so I'll tell you.  It was one of the few romance stories I have read that was realistic.  This book reminded me a lot of Drew in Blue by J.M. Kelley, because you could totally relate to the characters in every sense of the word.  
You connected with Cait because who hasn't had their life fall apart at one time or another or had to tuck tail and go home to lick their wounds? And some of us, yes especially me, have had relationships that were intense and scary and made you want to run away.  And then, no offense men out there, but most of you aren't the sharpest tools in the shed and once again it's something we can relate to with Bryce. 
I hope the author continues with more books about the siblings, Especially Kurt, but well he deserves a HEA.

Brandi's Rating:


  1. Brandi--thank you so much for the great review, and yes, realistic is the name of the game for me. :) More good news--there will indeed be more books. Kurt's story will be out in May, A Slower Lower Life, and a third installment will come out later in the year. I'm glad someone finally "got" Kurt. Thank you. :)

  2. I loved Kurt! I'm glad you liked the review, I try to be honest. I can't wait for May! Heading over to my TBB list now. =)
