Review: Wrong Bed, Right Brother by Rebecca Brooks
Wrong Bed, Right Brother - Rebecca Brooks

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

Amanda has been crushing on her coworker, Luke, for quite some time. But in six weeks Luke is going to move from New York to LA with his twin. If Amanda wants a shot with him, she’ll have to take it while on a weekend getaway with Luke and some others. But when Amanda sneaks into what she thinks is Luke’s room she finds herself in bed with Luke’s twin, Noah. Noah couldn’t be more different from his charming brother; he and Amanda are like oil and water. But Amanda’s mistake cracks something open in their antagonistic relationship and suddenly neither Amanda nor Noah can resist the pull between them. But Noah is leaving in six weeks and the two of them don’t even like each other, so nothing can happen…right?

Wrong Bed, Right Brother is a sexy and fun good time. Enemies-to-lovers isn’t my favorite trope but in this case it works oh-so-well. Amanda and Noah have seriously hot chemistry and I loved watching the sparks fly as their mutual attraction opened the door to something much deeper.

One of my favorite things about this story was watching Amanda realize how what she thought she wanted wasn’t what she really needed. Luke is a delightful fantasy: a charmer and a flirt who has a natural ease about him. He gets away with being self-centered because he’s hot and personable. Noah, by contrast, is quieter, organized, and has a more rigid personality. But there’s so much more beneath the surface. He and Amanda click from the start and the sparks that fly are fantastic to watch. But what made me really fall for Wrong Bed, Right Brother were the quieter moments, the conversations where Amanda and Noah realize that even though they’re so different they complement each other perfectly.

But just because they’re well suited doesn’t mean things are easy for Amanda and Noah. Amanda has had bad luck with men and her mother has pounded it into her head that she can’t trust them. And Noah fears that he’s Amanda’s second choice. There’s also added tension from Luke and the fact that Noah is scheduled to move across the country. A happily ever after requires risk in this story: risking your heart, risking trusting someone, depending on them. I was here for it from beginning to end. All the ups and downs were worth it because the romance just worked for me. In Wrong Bed, Right Brother Rebecca Brooks has delivered a fast-paced, wonderfully addictive, sexy as hell romance that I can’t wait to revisit.

My Brother Bert, Hughes & Pearson
My Brother Bert - Tracey Campbell Pearson,Ted Hughes

Take an already amusing children's poem about Bert's out-of-control animal collecting hobby and illustrate it with large, fun, cute paintings and what do you get? An absolute delight! I especially like the rabbits (of which there are many), ostrich chicks and domestic cat but the other animals are also wonderful. Forty pages of joy.

Steady
Breaker: A Brother's Best Friend - Harloe Rae

Sutton has come back to her hometown after college.  She is trying to start fresh.  Prior to leaving for college she had told the love of her life she wanted him.  He pushed her away, saying she deserved better.  What could be better than the love of your life?  Hoping to move on she comes home to start her business.

 

Grady is told by a local police officer he is going to try to date Sutton when she gets home.  This man is his enemy, and it stirs something inside him.  He would not want any other man to touch his Sutton.  Is she his?  He better do something fast.  It may be too late.

 

Such a tender and sincere story.  I loved every page and read it all at once in one sitting.  No putting this one down.  Lovely story about great odds that must be beaten.  With real love and real hope.  I found this one to be truly inspiring as well as a joy to read.  Some great sexy times too. I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

quote 2020-04-22 08:01
“I’ll miss you, Gray.”

A rumble rises off his chest. “Yeah? Try forgetting me while you’re at it. You’ll be better off.”

I don’t bother responding. With that final blow, a gate slams shut between us. The clang ripples through me, solidifying what I’ve been trying to deny. This is the end of us. But this has always been the story of a girl desperately in love with a boy. Irrevocably and unrequited.

I’m ready to leave these well-worn pages behind.”

Tense Young Adult Thriller
Little Brother - Cory Doctorow

A terrorist attack on San Francisco brings the Department of Homeland Security to the city. Four teens are wrongfully detained and only three of them are released. This compels one of their number, Marcus Yallow, to wage a cyber war on the DHS.

 

The novels considers what freedoms people are willing to sacrifice in the name of national security, and of course this varies widely from person to person.

 

It's a tense YA thriller with a strong political message that I found compelling and fascinating. Reading the sequel first didn't spoil the story, thankfully.
