The Other Brother is a stand-alone. However, there are two other couples in the book who have previously been written about: Racer and Georgie in Twisted Twosome and Tucker and Emma in My Best Friend’s Ex. I did not read those books before The Other Brother, but the couples intrigued me enough that I have added them to my TBR and hope to visit them soon.
Second chance romances are a favorite of mine. There is just something about reconnecting with a significant other from the past and rediscovering the passion once shared that warms my heart. Aaron and Amelia had that connection in spades. It was evident from the start what they’d lost had never disappeared, only misplaced. I enjoyed the flashbacks to their initial relationship; it put the foundation on which Aaron was trying to build their new relationship in crystal clear perspective.
The most intriguing part of the book was that of the brothers, Aaron & Tyke. While a little unreal, I loved it; I read to escape reality, so it was terrific to get that little bit of departure. In fact, all the family dynamics Aaron had to deal with were fascinating and heartbreaking.
My wish for The Other Brother is that the first few chapters be more attention-grabbing. As I said, I nearly DNF’d the book because of the first quarter, when I was finding it hard to connect with the characters or writing. The writing did improve as the novel progressed, so I felt that, perhaps, the author had difficulty connecting with the characters in the beginning as well.
Meghan Quinn, while not exactly unknown to me, is an author I’ve never read. I’ve extensively heard about how funny she is – if you follow my reviews, you know I stay away from comedy – so I’d had little reason to pick up her books. I’m unsure if this book is a departure for her, but the humor took a back seat to the emotion and intensity of The Other Brother. Keeping this fact in mind, I have every intention of trying a few titles from her backlist.
“I’m the one she couldn’t give up. Only, I kind of wish she did…”
Meghan Quinn never fails to deliver, whether it be her hilarious rom-coms or her heartfelt contemporary romances. I didn’t know what to expect with The Other Brother, the title led my brain totally down the wrong path as I went into this book completely blind. What I got was unexpected, emotional, heartfelt, stunningly beautiful and one of the most unique second chance romance stories I have ever read. Don’t forget to read the dedication at the end, it pulls this whole story together and will have you sweaty eyed in no time.
The Other Brother regales us with the story of Aaron or Smalls as he is known to his two friends, Tucker and Racer. In Tucker and Racer’s books (Twisted Twosome and My Best Friends Ex) the Aaron we came to know had a huge heart, was quite quiet yet incredibly intriguing. I had eagerly been anticipating his book, each one has been totally different and yet when this trio are together their commonality and deep-rooted friendship is apparent for all to see. The banter and the high jinks when these three are together will have you laughing out loud, especially when anything from Debbie’s is thrown into the mix, but at the heart of this story is one man that you will take deep into your heart and soul, one that you will want to hug and nurture, one where you will be itching to eradicate the pains of his past, one man who you will desperately want to shine.
“…from as far back as I can remember, I’ve always been the other. The other friend, the other employee…the other brother. For once in my life I want to be the only.”
Your childhood is one of the most important periods of your life, from creating your own personality, your individuality and your confidence. Your childhood shapes your adulthood and your parents are the ones that are supposed to show you the way. When this process is incredibly flawed the repercussions can be dramatic and for Aaron that childhood was still haunting him. Aaron was incredibly self-deprecating, he truly didn’t appreciate his worth, he put himself at the bottom and everyone else above him, even if that meant sacrificing his own happiness. Aaron had a huge heart, when he loved, he loved hard, completely devoted. I simply adored him, and I desperately wanted him to find that complete devotion in return.
“The harder you love, the harder you fall.”
Amelia is back in town to look after her ailing father. Renting a house in a community close to her father’s care home Amelia is shocked when she finds her new neighbour is her first love, the one that she has never got over, the one that permanently broke her heart. Fate has a way of showing us the way and the fact that their paths cross once again is not coincidence. The connection that these two have is so strong, even after all these years and a lot of water under the bridge.
Meghan Quinn delivers a story that will have you rapt from first to last page as the past and present of Aaron and Amelia comes to life in all its heart-breaking and heart-lifting glory. The emotion as ever was on point as you cannot help but take these characters into your heart. Aaron, as I said above was adorable in every single way. He was selfless, he lifted the lives of so many people despite the stagnancy of his own. Aaron always felt the need to prove himself and yet he couldn’t see just how well loved, appreciated and invaluable he had become. The relationship between Aaron and Amelia’s father had me in tears at times as Meghan Quinn touches on Alzheimer’s.
There was nothing not to love about this book. The writing as ever was spectacular. That trademark humour prevalent throughout with tears of laughter accompanying those sneaky tears of emotion. The character connection was perfection, between both primary and secondary and the story was compelling and unputdownable. Another winner from Meghan Quinn.
