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.
There are a lot of lovely moments in this story. And, knowing it’s the first in a series about 8 brothers, I expected a lot of “introducing”. There was a lot going on, although it was well contained to one basic area. For the most part, I’d say I liked this book. But there were a few timeline issues when it came to the main characters remembering the past, and you know I’m a stickler for those inane details.
Both Sebastian and Dru are wonderful characters and their chemistry is there for sure. I couldn’t help but be tickled by Sebastian’s brothers becoming protective of Dru so readily. Especially once they could see how she brought out something different in their brother. Yet Dru doesn’t need their protection in the physical sense. She’s definitely someone who can take care of herself.
Yes, this story is an insta-love type of story. Yes, there are a lot of things that make you go hmmmm. But it’s all in fun and those pesky details don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. I enjoyed the read and the dynamics of all of the characters so I will read the next in the series to see how things go.
