    Something about this series resonates; could be the allure of forbidden love or the adorable but at times frustrating heroine. Whatever it is, I was invested in the love between Jackson and Emily and did not want the story to end. Perfection!

    Spoilers throughout. I wasn't a huge fan of book one, but so much was left unresolved, I chose to read the second book hoping for an ending. And I am still angry at myself for wasting my own time. This book picks up where book 1 left off: Emily has just left Michael at the altar and admitted to being pregnant with Jackson’s baby, leaving Jackson to presume they’ll be getting married because this is the 19th century and single mothers are as bad as lepers.

And I am still angry at myself for wasting my own time. This book picks up where book 1 left off: Emily has just left Michael at the altar and admitted to being pregnant with Jackson’s baby, leaving Jackson to presume they’ll be getting married because this is the 19th century and single mothers are as bad as lepers. Even worse than book one, this is the most depressing contemporary romance I’ve ever read, and not because anything particularly tragic happens, but because the h is treated like shit by everyone and she never gets the upper-hand. Emily learns early after moving to Virginia and marrying Jackson that after he proposed to her and she said no, because he doesn’t love her, he went back to Virginia and talked to his ex, Harper, about their future together. Then he returns to NY to tell Emily to marry Mike, because he can give her what she wants, despite him being not only emotionally abusive but physically as well. But Mike screws up royally in public, Emily asks Jackson if his offer is still on the table, he says yes, and married they get. But when Emily confronts Jackson about what she learned, that he wanted to get back with Harper, he never denied it or explained himself. But, he’s committed so don’t worry, he wont’s cheat on her as long as she continues to have sex with him. ‘AS LONG AS SHE CONTINUES TO HAVE SEX WITH HIM’!? What if she’s on bedrest? Or decides she wants to boycott sex a while until he starts acting human? Welp, she’s ‘no longer having sex with him’ so I guess he’s off the hook. Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh. Emily’s weak and desperate for a man that continues to eye-screw his ex in public (just to come back with the excuse of ‘we have history’), but he has the gall to accuse Emily of being unfaithful to him. How rich. But the moment he touches or kisses her, she loses all fight and lets him do whatever he wants. It’s pathetic. Jackson is never given time to evolve and become a better man. Instead, a contrived ‘I realized what I could lose’ moment happens and *BAM* all is forgiven. No, he never confronts Harper (his ex) for trying to poison Emily’s dog or for harassing her, his very pregnant wife. He waits until after the baby is born to ever say I love you. He accused Emily of being at fault for not making friends more easily when A) she’s accused of ‘forgetting who she belongs to’ if she speaks to a man outside of his presence and B) all of the women openly ridicule, mock and gossip about her and he never. Once. Stands. Up. For. Her. Not once. Jackson is not a desirable hero. He’s an emotionally stunted jerk that’s incapable of sensitivity at Emily’s position. But he’s the hottest guy in the world with a big stick so that makes up for it, I guess. *Cough sarcasm cough* He’s just trying to take responsibility for a baby he doesn’t even bother to attend the doctor’s appointments of. No, of course he doesn’t, because when Emily repeatedly texts him (admittedly, after he experiences a tragedy but she has been there for him every step of the way), he never opens a single one of her texts. But he’s capable of opening his sexts from Harper? AND HE NEVER JUSTIFIES WHY THAT IS!? I hate that Emily stays with him. This book was so GD frustrating and infuriating – I have no hope of reading any of Stone’s other books. This book is not representative of love. It’s just a lonely woman with no family desperate to get one so badly, she’ll abandon all self-respect for a man that never deserves her. Jackson had a crappy childhood, yes. But how he manages to be so utterly blind to Emily’s plight is beyond me. Anyone with half a heart would want to be there for the mother of their child and actually follow through, not give excuse after excuse for his absence and apathy. Just like her last fiancé. She left one emotionally abusive relationship for another. That’s not a HEA.

    It had really good reviews but seriously it feels like I didn't read the same book as everyone else. This book was by far the worst I've ever read. Emily is a complete doormat. Everyone takes advantage of Emily. Jackson is a moron same as Matt. I didn't feel any connection between Jackson and Emily not sure what everyone is talking about.

    Other woman drama Book one wasn’t too bad. I ended up with no respect for Emily since she was going to keep the pregnancy a secret, it doesn’t matter what Jackson said he did or did not want, he deserved to be told. So coming into book two I was already against her. And I was loving Jackson. But plot twist! Jackson has been switched out for a totally different guy now personality wise. The silent serious protective staring is gone and in its place is a serious SEAL, but one that laughs with his Other woman drama Book one wasn’t too bad. I ended up with no respect for Emily since she was going to keep the pregnancy a secret, it doesn’t matter what Jackson said he did or did not want, he deserved to be told. So coming into book two I was already against her. And I was loving Jackson. But plot twist! Jackson has been switched out for a totally different guy now personality wise. The silent serious protective staring is gone and in its place is a serious SEAL, but one that laughs with his buddies and drinks. I did not feel the love in this book. Perhaps a huge part is because Harper, Jackson’s ex who he apparently planned to get back with after NY, was heavy in this book. She caused a lot of problems. He had even previously bought an ENGAGEMENT RING for her and Emily found it in a draw. But his excuse was that being with Harper was EASY. Uh. So she was gonna get a ring? It’s obvious Harper is a terrible person by her actions. And she works with him! I hated the fact that this writer tried to make Jackson some dark tortured soul in this book and instead he came off not even liking Emily, loving Harper and making poor choices. He would open Harpers texts, but not Emily’s. What the heck was that about? He would still talk to Harper. And the way that Emily described him mooning and smiling over Harper, that was heart wrenching! Hearing some other girl tell Emily that Jackson looks at her that way and that he shows PDA with Emily did NOT erase the words put out by Emily regarding Jackson and Harper. And then after Harper pushes Emily does bleachers, she’s just not even mentioned again. Uh! What? Did he freak you out on her? Did she say sorry? Is she still on his team that will take him on missions? Poor Emily! But then after he gets hurt, he realizes then he loves Emily even though he knew before? Like, what? This was a totally different H personality from book one. And I did NOT see the ex coming in this story. Had I known, I wouldn’t have read it. I truly felt like he loved Harper, even though he said being with her was easy. I just couldn’t buy it that he really wanted Emily. I felt like Emily should have went into a severe depression. But I did like learning about some of his SEAL buddies and I thought they would make up future books, perhaps one would get with her friend Beth. Nope, totally random different SEALs going forward apparently. Would not recommend.

    Umm... well this one hurt. Tbh I’m pretty exhausted. There’s nothing quite like reading about character who gets beat down time and time again to really tucker you out. For me the ending was quite bittersweet. But I tore through these two books like it was nobodies business! Although, I am a little depressed now. But kinda happy? Idk. So keep that in mind if you decide to pick this up!

My heart broke a little for Emily and the situation she found herself in as a military wife. I don’t know why I felt so compelled to her because in all honestly, she was a little whiney, but I understood her. I understood her need to please people, the awkwardness she feels in new environments and struggling to make friends.

I didn’t feel that we got to enjoy the conclusion enough and we had no resolution for the villains. Matt, Matt’s mum, Jennifer, Harper. What happened to them? What happened to the poisoned dog food? I mean hopefully they’re all six feet under somewhere but it would’ve been nice to know.

    Wowza part one and this has everything that I love to make one intense drama filled read; infidelity, forbidden love, amnesia, wicked mothers, unplanned pregnancy, and OW drama on steroids. I admit the heroine drove me a little nuts and she needed a good shaking a few times, but I got her and rooted for her every step of the way. The H needed a good swift kick too, but that’s what made this so fun. I love books like this. 5 stars all the way.

    The second installment of this series was even better than the first book. It is lovely to see how Emily and Jackson grow with each others influence. The heroine was frustrating at times, but if you took a closer look, you saw the strong side of her shortcomings.

This 1-star review hits me especially deep because it had everything I typically love in a romance read. Navy SEAL- check Broody alpha- check Taboo vibes- check Popular guy/unpopular girl- check I read a couple of the Vancouver Wolves books a while back and remembered liking them so I. was. ready. for. this. And... What the actual fuck just happened? BOOK ONE RECAP WITH SPOILERS: So back in book one, we meet Emily who is your typical quiet, shy, doormat h. I didn't love her but she was fine. At the time, she is engaged to Matt The Raging Asshole. His pseudo-brother Jackson shows up to stay with them for 3 months and *boom* sparks fly. Jackson is a Navy SEAL who is hot, thoughtful, and a picture perfect romance H. There's a lot of back and forth with Emily being an indecisive mouse... yada yada yada... then Matt finally dumps her for her best friend and gives Jackson the go ahead. Oh, and Emily is also a virgin because of course she is. She & Jackson get their freak on then surprise Matt gets in a wreck and they have to go the hospital. Oh and he also has a brain tumor that made him an asshole. Oh and he also has amnesia. Following the trajectory of this telenovela, Emily keeps on keeping on with Matt until she announces that she is pregnant with Jackson's baby at her wedding and runs away. END SCENE. Okey dokey. Now that we are caught up, let's get into the shit show that was book two. Basically take everything you ever liked about Jackson and throw it out the window. He is not sweet. He is not thoughtful. He is not our picture perfect romance novel H. In true romance fashion, he proposes marriage to Emily after finding out about the pregnancy because he wants to "honor his commitment". *swoon* Emily says fuck you because she is an independent, financially stable woman and doesn't need a man. Emily says yes. She moves to Virginia to live on base with him and gets a wake-up call. All the wives talk massive shit about her. Does Jackson defend her? Of course not. He basically blames her for not making friends with the vile cunts. And then he turns into a jealous prick every time she talks to the one person who was actually nice to her. Even though he is making googoo eyes at his ex-girlfriend the entire time. Oh yeah, Jackson was dating this chick Harper for three year then broke up with her the day before he met Emily. Jackson's handling of the Harper/Emily situation really put the nail in his coffin for me. Harper is a cruel bitch who tried to kill Emily's dog and aggressively shoved her when pregnant. She also consistently harasses Emily while sexting and flirting with Jackson. And what does our wonderful hero do? FLIRTS BACK, giggles, makes googly eyes, and opens the sexts. He gaslights tf out of Emily by defending Harper every chance he gets even though she is sending him pictures of her naked vagina. Not cool dude. So Jackson refuses to acknowledge that he has any feelings for Emily, openly flirts with his ex-girlfriend, and doesn't support his wife at all even after ripping her form her home and dropping her in a land of venomous bitches. But what pushes him over the edge?? Emily reading an old journal in the attic. Dude. It wasn't even that big of a deal. But apparently her being able to read is sooooooooo disgusting that he ends it. He is supposed to be redeemed in the last 10% of the book but it was too little, too late bro. He still couldn't even tell her that he loved her until after she took him back and pushed out his baby. Now what about Emily? Honestly I am not even going to waste the word count on her. She was like every other spineless, meek, doormat, virgin heroine you have ever read about. Obviously, I hate the h and H. But all the other characters suck too. There was literally ONE decent friend: Beth. Every other person treated the h like absolute trash. RIDICULOUS. Even the H's male friends were rude and condescending at first. And we get no sort of redemption storylines. One minute, the wives are raging bitches then we are supposed to believe they are BFFs because they want Emily to paint their kids' rooms? Nah man. I have never read a book where I hated every single character (except Beth). So no matter what, that alone would make it a 1-star for me. But I also have to say that the storyline was an absolute mess. Is this really the same author of Home Game? It was as if she tried to fit every single plot line possible into this book- but the plots were never resolved. Matt and Julia? Unresolved. Irene? Unresolved. Harper? Unresolved. Remember that serial killer back in book one? UNRESOLVED. WTF happened to him? Why was he even there? And how does this chick end up with parents who killed in a home abduction, then she is attacked by a serial killer, then she is held up at gunpoint, then she is attacked by an ex BFF, then her husband is MIA? This is such a pet peeve of mine. Pick ONE ~life changing tragedy~ and build your story around that rather than having 47055049 different things happen. Like, you are ATTACKED BY A SERIAL KILLER and we never hear about it again??? UGHHHHH OKAY. I AM DONE RANTING. Basically: The hero sucks. The heroine sucks. And so does everyone else. Save your brain energy and head over to the Vancouver Wolves series instead.

    The conclusion of the love triangle between Matt, Jackson and Emily. Emily made it to the church but she cannot marry someone she isn’t in love with. After all she’s also pregnant too. Jackson is a navy seal, Matt just recovered from his accident and tumor and Emily has no time left. Holy bananas this book, it was a rollercoaster. Warning have a box of tissues handy. There were some cute banter points, but otherwise getting to know Jackson is not easy. He’s got a fortress around his heart.

Jackson is a navy seal, Matt just recovered from his accident and tumor and Emily has no time left. Holy bananas this book, it was a rollercoaster. Warning have a box of tissues handy. There were some cute banter points, but otherwise getting to know Jackson is not easy. He’s got a fortress around his heart. He’s determined to not have a family or commitment and he’s dipped his foot in commitment. Matt is a manipulative mastermind I couldn’t believe the length that he went for things. Julie makes an appearance and she is horrible. Irene isn’t any better she’s hot and cold and when you find out why- you want to hate her. Emily goes through the ringer through all of this, no choice is easy, but she’s stubborn, strong and eventually her love pays off- I don’t know how she did it. Her choice was the best choice, and probably hardest choice. The abuse both physical, mental and emotional presented throughout this book is so sad- sometimes it’s his past, sometimes it’s the present, sometimes it’s gossiping queens of those around them. I would love to hug Jackson and cuff him upside the head at times too- he’s a frustrating character that makes the biggest leaps in this. Emily- such an amazing person that doesn’t deserve the treatment she gets- but she fights, and treads water, and fights some more- such a strong, determined, loving person even with her anxiety and insecurities. In the end she has her family, she always wanted. Beth is also a great friend- the best to her. My emotions have gone through the ringer in this book, I couldn’t put it down, leaving me in suspense how things would go. Once I reached the ending- it was cute, but a bit abrupt considering it took two books to get there. I wished I knew more of the future and how much it changed with him loving her and baby Theo. Also Beth? Or his work? Maybe a few years later update? More kids? They worked so hard to get there- I just want to know they stayed successful. Did they take down Harper? Was she the dog poisoner? Julie? Matt? Irene? I would have loved reading from the male point of view- especially from Jackson’s. Sadly this is only written from Emily’s point of view. I was definitely holding on to my seat to see what happens next, and did he truly love her. She just wanted a family. Well written, character development fantastic. I didn’t know what to expect next. Will definitely read more by this author now just need some adjustment time to release my connection to this book- phew I can breath again.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really don’t even know what to say - I don’t think I have ever disliked a main character more than I disliked Jackson in this book. I get that he’s messed up because of his childhood - but how is he so attentive, observant and protective in book one and such and ignorant, hurtful jackass of a husband in book two? Completely disregarding pretty much anything Emily says about Harper - then has the balls to ask her why she didn’t tell him Harper was harassing her. I was as dumbfounded as Emily in I really don’t even know what to say - I don’t think I have ever disliked a main character more than I disliked Jackson in this book. I get that he’s messed up because of his childhood - but how is he so attentive, observant and protective in book one and such and ignorant, hurtful jackass of a husband in book two? Completely disregarding pretty much anything Emily says about Harper - then has the balls to ask her why she didn’t tell him Harper was harassing her. I was as dumbfounded as Emily in that moment and I just wanted to throat punch him. There is no way in this universe I would have forgiven him as easily as Emily did. Yes, he said everything she needed to hear when he finally had his come to Jesus moment - but damn girl, make a d*chen*zzle work for it a bit. Have some self respect. A crappy childhood is not a reason to give someone a pass for how they treated you without some sort of reparations. He comes back and tells you he wasn’t going to let you go after he treated you like crap and you’re just all “swoon, ok”? No. You say, “I want to stay, and I want to love you, but you have hurt me in just about every way imaginable for months. You completely blew off any issue or concern I brought up to you, you were able to read Harper’s sexts but couldn’t even read mine and I’m your wife, you treated me like garbage when I’m the mother of your child, you told me to leave and not be here when you got back. I will stay and work on this marriage because I love you - but you sure have a lot to make up to me, and to prove that I can trust you to be a respectful and equal partner in this relationship. This is your last and only chance remaining - don’t f*ck this up again or you will see your child in the future but you won’t see me, I’m not your doormat.” There. I fixed the ending. Jackson grovels, tells his ex Harper to shove off and blocks her number and that if any more tainted meat makes it in his yard he’ll turn her in to command, grovels some more to Emily. Somehow proves himself to her, not quite sure how. Maybe then I’d be ok with a woman who has the means to take care of herself and her child 100% on her own sticking with the idiot who treated her horribly.

    Ugh, fuck this book. The first book had enough drama between Matt and Jackson. The Harper drama was just too much. I hated her, but I hated Jackson for the whole situation too. Emily continues to be a doormat and doesn’t realize that neither of the two men are a good choice for her. She wants love but neither of them are giving that to her. She can be a single mom, come on. Have some damn respect for yourself. Jackson knew Emily was a virgin and she obviously had no reason for any kind of birth Ugh, fuck this book.

He didn’t even pull out. And he has the audacity to ask her if she got pregnant on purpose? Fuck no. Emily asked Jackson why he wanted to be with her. You know what he eventually responds with? “It’s the sex.” OH FUCK OFF. BASTARD. Sure, the ending was nice and all, but the whole story pissed me the fuck off. Jackson had a bad childhood but that is no reason for Emily to continue to endure being treated like she didn’t matter, like she wasn’t loved and was there just as an obligation. Complete and utter bullshit.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this book more than the first one. In this one Emily seems to be less wishy washy about everything and starts to stand up for herself. Jackson is such a blank slate emotion wise however until almost the end. Can I just say how much I hated his ex girlfriend! She clearly is the ass who is leaving chicken around. I hope that the whole base realizes how much of a lying person she is and what she is doing to Emily. She should be more respectful of someone's marriage. Now the part that turn I enjoyed this book more than the first one. In this one Emily seems to be less wishy washy about everything and starts to stand up for herself.

Now the part that turned this whole thing around for me was the diary. Confirmation of suspicions I had in the first book. That led to them having a blown out heart to heart emotional discussion. And the ending!!! I am so happy it didn't end the way I thought it was going to. I removed one star since they didn't give me those answers in regards to his ex and there was no confrontation with her ex.

    Awful This is the first book I have read that the h was treated so horribly. It’s was awful. She was treated bad in first book and you think she’s getting this grand HEA in this book. But a big fat NO! So many unresolved issues like why don’t we seee how Jackson handles OW? What happens to Matt? How and why on earth would Jackson want anything todo with Matt and his Mom. I could go on and on. Doormat h and weak H.

    This book was beautiful. It broke my heart in pieces a million times and then put it all back together. The writing was beautiful and so were the characters.

    3.5 Stars A good conclusion to Emily and Jackson's story. My only issue is a couple of things feel like they have been left up in the air leaving a few questions unanswered. 3.5 Stars A good conclusion to Emily and Jackson's story.

    I’m clearly a glutton for punishment because I thought Part 1 was horrendous. That being said, however, it ended off in a cliff-hanger and I was desperately hoping that Emily would finally learn to stand her ground. Alas, that was not the case. Picking up from the scene where Emily left Matt and Jackson at the altar, 20% of Part 2 was spent dealing with the aftermath (i.e. Emily accepting Jackson’s marriage proposal) and the remainder detailing her time at the military base with him.

That being said, however, it ended off in a cliff-hanger and I was desperately hoping that Emily would finally learn to stand her ground. Alas, that was not the case. Picking up from the scene where Emily left Matt and Jackson at the altar, 20% of Part 2 was spent dealing with the aftermath (i.e. Emily accepting Jackson’s marriage proposal) and the remainder detailing her time at the military base with him. I already mentioned how nonsensical their romance was in Part 1, but it somehow got worse in Part 2. It basically read like this: Odette reminding the readers how little Emily was in comparison to Jackson’s towering frame, how easily Emily found herself in these damsel-in-distress incidents, and how only he could save her. It was exasperating that she kept equating safety to love, especially since it appeared to be the only reason she fell in love with him. It was also laughable when Jackson said that sex was one of the two reasons he wanted to be with her (their child being the other reason). He had more chemistry with his ex-girlfriend than with Emily, and his actions, or lack thereof, constantly proved that he wanted to be with Harper instead. For instance, he missed their ultrasound appointment and didn’t read any of her texts, yet chose to read Harper’s sexts. As much as I griped about Emily’s refusal to draw boundaries, the same could be said for Jackson here. By never telling Harper that he didn’t want her, he allowed her to continue bullying Emily and continue entertaining a possibility of a future together. It wasn’t believable when he kept telling Emily that nothing happened. Maybe not physically, but it seemed like he wanted something to happen. I couldn’t even blame him considering how irrational and annoying Emily was. Emily felt more like an obligation to him than anything else and besides their lack of chemistry, they had zero emotional connection. This made the ending – which immediately transitioned from the scene where Jackson unconvincingly said he wanted nothing to do with Harper, to them fighting after he found out about her violating his privacy, Jackson almost dying from a mission and realizing that he couldn’t live without her, to their happily-ever-after – feel like a total farce. Not to mention, there was also this most ridiculous scene near the end where she proved that she trusted him by going skydiving when she was at least 5 months pregnant (!). With all these inanities, it was a miracle that I was able to make it to the end. If I could, I would give it all the negative stars in the world.

    My Fiancé's Brother is a two part story, where #1 ends in a cliffhanger but both parts are already out so no waiting, Bonus!

Emily is living with and marrying Matt when his "brother" Jackson shows up one evening to stay with them for a few months. Matt, distant and always working, leaves Emily and Jackson form a bond that they try to keep platonic but the heart doesn't work that way. Emily is a bit (a lot) of a doormat. She is constantly catering to the mercurial whims of her fiancé and her self-doubt is a brutal taskmaster. Now, normally this is the type of character I have little tolerance for but there is something about the way Emily is written that allowed me to feel for and even like her. The character is one that is in transition from unsure girl to confident woman but who has no strong allies having lost her parents early and being surrounded by vultures. Emily just needed someone in her corner to push her towards the finish line. Jackson is that push. Jackson is a career soldier who is in town for therapy and is estranged from his "adoptive" family of Matt and Matt's mother. He is the child of a drunk who was taken in by the cop that continuously saved him. Jackson is loyal to a fault and while he has found his place in life it is based on information processed through the mind of a child in a difficult place. The first part of the story is the meeting of Emily and Jackson, their growing attraction and the demise of Emily's relationship with Matt. While I admit that Emily is frustrating at times with her hesitancy in the face of Matt's betrayals and abandonment, this part is a building of a strong bond between Jackson and Emily as Matt becomes more and more unstable. The second part of the revelation of secrets and lies, hidden damage and painful truths. Part two is where Jackson and Emily's love is truly put to the test and their lives a pushed to the brink. These are two very well written and lengthy books that are well worth the time. Emily and Jackson are very real to life characters, ordinary heroes facing life the best they can.

    This is the second book in a two book series. I loved this book as much as I loved Book 1 in the series. Again, I wish I could give it more than the 5 stars allowed. I was absolutely hooked from beginning to end. Emily’s story continues and Odette Stone develops her character slowly but surely. Jackson and his story of abuse and self-loathing becomes more important in this second book. I found myself cheering Emily on to make the best decisions, I became so involved with her story that I laughed This is the second book in a two book series.

I found myself cheering Emily on to make the best decisions, I became so involved with her story that I laughed, cried and worried right along beside her. My heart ached for Jackson a d I sincerely hoped he would be able to view himself as an individual not only could be loved, but deserved if wholeheartedly. I loved how Emily’s and Jackson’s characters grew in confidence and gained self-belief, and became determined to achieve their happy ever after. I’ve found another author to add to my favourites and will definitely be looking out for more. BTW, congratulations and thanks to Odette Stone for a wonderful series.
