Their Aunt calls them (4 brothers) to tell them their father is missing and asks them to come home. When they get into town they don't even bother to check in with her first. The boys take over the farm and house but where is the step mother. We never hear from step mother but have a few scenes with the step sister. Confusing. Towards the end of the part of the story we are told that the aunt has had a stroke and is in the hospital unable to talk.
He's a dairy farmer at heart, she's a vegan activist. The idea that they can so easily compromise in the the end is far fetched. If she had just been against the abuse of the animals sure, but she is against all people eating any animals. I ended up skimming the steamy parts, so I can't say whether they were or not.
After eight years, Declan comes home to find the dairy farm in disarray. His dad is missing and he and his brothers must solve the mystery and try to save the farm. Meanwhile, the animal rights protesters, led by a spitfire activist named Riley, are bent on shutting it down.
There were some really funny interactions between Riley and Declan… and some not-so-funny ones. And of course, the inevitable, reluctant draw of attraction and then, love.
A sweet story that I enjoyed very much. 4 stars.
The “romance” was completed, kinda, but an important part of the storyline was left hanging and will probably be dragged out through all the other brothers’ books. The writing seemed juvenile, and if it hadn’t been explicit in spots I would have thought I’d accidentally gotten a YA book. The other brothers had horrid attitudes, and didn’t seem concerned about their missing father. They also made the assumption that they can do whatever they want with he property, but hello! The father remarried and may have changed his will! The h was self centered and mean, and the H was a doormat. The stuff about the dairy and the activists was way too long and preachy. An issue should be brought up and mentioned a few times, but let the main idea flow around it. Don’t beat it to death. The analogies were way overdone. (If I could remember where to find one I’d post it.)
I really don’t understand how this got so many good reviews. If it hadn’t been for the partial cliffhanger I might have given it one more star, but the way it’s written it certainly doesn’t deserve more. I (think) I liked the story idea itself, and if it was reworked by a more mature writer it would be tons better. Even if it was better, unless there’s an exceptional circumstance, I’ll never give a cliffhanger book more than one star.
