Book Description

Severine Blake has seen far too many friends taken down in the crossfires of dating. She devises a precise course of action to protect her heart. The plan is working very well...until she meets Thayer and Macsen.
When the Sloan brothers come into her life, nothing is the same.

Thayer is self-possessed, arrogant and used to getting what he wants. Being near him leaves Severine unsteady and shaken. He makes her question everything.
Macsen contradicts his brother in every way. His calm personality captivates her. Severine is drawn to him instantly.
But Severine quickly discovers that when you want something, that want can turn wicked. Giving in is not always easy, especially when your heart refuses to give up the fight.

What little illusion of love Severine has is soon destroyed. Every option is broken, and the protection she has built around her heart instantly crumbles.

There's just no right way with the Sloan brothers.

(Every Which Way is a New Adult novel with language, references to alcohol and sexual situations. Intended for mature readers.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Distracting writing/editing November 20, 2012
By Jean
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In a nutshell, this book tells the story of Severine, an independent-thinking, take no BS college student who becomes involved in a love triangle with the Sloan brothers, Macsen and Thayer. Emotional chaos ensues.

I thought I would love this book, based on all the gushing 5-star reviews, but I did not. It was an "okay" book. It was a good story with some interesting plot points but, frankly, I was distracted from the story far too often by the odd word choices the author made to allow me to enjoy it. Sometimes I had to stop and re-read a sentence a couple of times and it still didn't make sense to me. For example, this sentence:

When he moved, the abatement she needed placated through her body. (Read, Calia (2012-11-13). Every Which Way (Sloan Brothers) (Kindle Locations 4798-4799). Calia Read. Kindle Edition.)

What? That doesn't even make sense. And that wasn't the only instance. On a more minor note, it also bugged me that Rennick was referred to as Severine's step-brother when he is clearly her half-brother. World of difference between the two words. There were also several conversations happening where it wasn't clear who was talking and several others where I knew who was talking but didn't know what the heck they were talking about.

Overall, I guess if you don't read too closely you could probably enjoy this book. I just wasn't feeling it and I really don't have any interest in reading any further books in this series.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a dud :( December 1, 2012
By Bea
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had such high hopes for this book. It had a great cover, the concept sounded good and the sample had promise of electric chemistry and juicy sexual tension but somehow it all just fell flat. I never warmed up to the h. She came across boring, annoying with her snarky comments and tried too hard to be tough. I think the only character that I found interesting enough to read about was Thayer. Macsen doesn't really have much of a personality, not until the end. It seemed to me like this book did a lot of telling and very little showing. Consequently, I found myself bored! And I agree with other reviewers, it was hard to follow who was talking and what the eff they were talking about sometimes. I thought it was because I was bored and found myself skimming sections but other reviewers say it was the writing style or editing whichever it was the book simply did not hold my interest.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ MAJOR SPOILERS @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Before I read this book I had read reviews that said the first part of this book dragged on and uh yeah it did big time. That's because the first part is about Savreen and Macsen. She picks him because she feels he is the better choice, the safe choice. She needs to be in control and not let herself be consumed with whatever she feels for Thayer. So she picks him, somehow starts to care for him (BTW we are told this because I sure didn't feel none of that since the whole time she and Thayer are having these intense feelings of attraction and arguments because of jealousy or repressed sexual tension) something happens that makes her break up with Macsen and then enters Thayer aka second half of the book. He is the one that actually makes the second part of the book come alive. Sadly, throughout the book Sevreen stays the same (as described above).

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings November 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the moment I saw this book and read the summary I was dying to read it. Add the little peeks the author gave us on top of that and I was seriously marking the days off until it came out! But I am sad to say I didn't love this book as much as I thought I would. That upsets me because I know this is the author's baby and she poured her heart into it. So it always is harder to write a review when I know that it is not going to be all good. But it isn't all bad either.

First let me say this book for me is split down the middle with what I did and didn't love. The first half of the story is where I struggled the most. I felt it was rushed and there was no time to establish a connection with the characters. It made it tough for me to understand the reactions on both sides when "the event" happened about at the half way point in the book.

Now that I have that out of the way I will move on to what I DID love. That would be the second half of this book. I felt almost like it was a completely different book! The chemistry was there! The scenes between the characters were in depth and allowed your to feel like you were able to better understand the actions and emotions.THIS part was the book I was so excited to read! And the ending did exactly what is was supposed to which was leave me with wanting more!!

I know my review is kinda vague but I truly do not want to ruin the story for anyone. I believe the book is worth the read and I am happy that I pushed through the first half of it. And I will definitely be picking up the 2nd book when it comes out.

I was seduced by the idea of this book. Two gorgeous brothers, love triangle, angst, drama, tension and hot romance - these were all things I was expecting. After reading Every Which Way, the debut novel by Calia Read, I wasn't entirely disappointed and most of my expectations were met.

To be honest, the second half of the book really kept me going and is where the story came through and delivered.

The Sloan brothers played a number on me and they had me bouncing back and forth between sides like a ping pong ball. Sigh. I still don't know which side I'm on. As far as characters go, I believe this author did a good job developing the Sloan brothers, although I feel there is still some mystery lying beneath the surface. I empathized with both brothers and loved and hated them both at different points in the story. In this aspect, I appreciate that the author did not reveal everything about the Sloans and has left much to be unraveled or discovered. Both Macsen and Thayer delivered some swoon worthy and I want to punch them in the face moments.

The character of Severine was one I had a hard time connecting with. I didn't quite understand her voice or POV. Although I did feel her angst, heartbreak and the dilemmas she was dealing with.
Speaking of characters, there is a "mystery" character introduced and I'm on pins and needles wanting to know where this is going. I'm afraid, really.

The writing style and dialog was bit difficult with me and I found it made following the story and immersing myself with these characters a small challenge.
