Hunter Waters has loved only one woman for his entire life.
Unfortunately she's his brother's girlfriend, Ever Allen. Hunter isn't the kind of guy to betray family, but when his brother Sam has to leave town and asks Hunter to look after her, the feelings he's fought for years can no longer be buried.
Ever can't think of a time when both Waters brothers hadn't been watching her back. Sam's boldness had charmed her, but now Hunter's quiet, steady strength makes her feel safe for the first time in her crazy, messed-up life. But how can she choose between the only two people in the world to have cared about her? How can she live with loving one brother if it means breaking the other's heart?

I knew going into this book there was going to be some hurt feelings. Of course, love is a tricky thing, and it's even harder when the person you love loves your brother or sister instead. That's why I was both eager and apprehensive; I wanted to know how it would be handled.
Diana Gardin does a fantastic job at setting up a new series and introducing new characters. I really liked Ever, Hunter, and Sam. They were just people caught up in their situations. I really felt horrible for Ever. Especially the circumstances that forced Sam to leave her. I also felt anger at those who knew about what was going on with Ever and didn't do anything to help her or stop what was going on.
I must admit I really swooned over Hunter. He's in a difficult spot, but he's honorable, and truly loves and cares for Ever. Knowing how much he hurt being around Ever and his brother when they were together only solidified what I felt for him. He never took the easy way out.
I read this novella in a very short period of time. I couldn't put it down. I'm also excited about the full length novels that will be coming in this series. I'm really looking forward to finding out what happens to everyone in the future.
