The Other Brooks Boy (Texas Wildfire #1) by Diane Roth

They're friends, Greg Brooks and his sexy sister-in-law, Cara. Always have been. Since his brother's death, they've grown even closer, dealing with their grief together, as strong families do. These days though, Greg feels he's in an alternate universe, where Cara is the sun, and he's attracted to her in a gravitational pull he can't escape. And like the sun, she's become something he can't seem to do without. He's done denying he's attracted to Cara. There is no denying it. He doesn't understand how you can be a part of someone's life in one capacity for twenty years and suddenly find yourself looking at them differently one day.

But there it is. Right in his face.

He wants her.

Since her husband died eighteen months ago, Cara's handsome brother-in-law, Greg has been her go-to-guy for advice, help with her teenagers, handyman repairs, and just about anything else she needs. His broad shoulders are more than able to carry the load. Lately, Cara's been feeling drawn to him in an altogether new way and she can't deny the sparks between them anymore. Greg Brooks is a dynamic and successful forty-year-old man who just happens to be really fit and damn good looking. No, there is nothing wrong with Greg Brooks.

Except one thing.

He's her brother-in-law, and that is a deal-breaker.

*This book has strong adult themes and sexual content and is not appropriate for young readers.

First, what a sizzling hot cover! Enough to whet the appetite and hope for that hotness in the book.  Cara lost her husband eighteen months ago and now, she relies on her brother-in-law Greg to help her with advice, friendship and memories of her husband.  They grieved together and now he helps her out with her kids and everyday other normal things.

But, their relationship is changing.  Now, Greg wants more from Cara and she finds herself looking at Greg differently, wanting more.  But what would they tell the kids? And it is her brother-in-law... 

Talk about a hot story! I really liked the fact that the characters were older.  It added more elements to the story and it was more realistic.  The characters are what drives this story but it is a page-turning romance that has elements of family, loss and starting over.  There are several romance scenes that almost set the pages on fire, so I hope you like your romance hot because this one is sizzling! The first in a new series, I can't wait to read the next one.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
