Blog Tour: The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

Until I met my neighbor.

It's been three years since I'd seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

Review by Jen Skewes

When I signed up to read The Other Brother I had no idea that this was Aaron’s story, who we met in My Best Friend’s Ex and Twisted Twosome.  I loved Aaron and was so excited to find out that this was his story.  The Other Brother is a second chance romance, which I love.   As always you can count on Meghan Quinn for the funny banter and witty moments but at the same time she takes you on an emotional journey as we see two people who were in love three years ago get their second chance.  

Amelia and Aaron were deeply in love.  They planned their future together and just knew that they were meant to be together.  They planned on being together forever.  Until Aaron pushed Amelia away, breaking bother her heart and his.  Aaron has had a rough childhood, one that has always made him question his worth.  He never thought he was good enough, was never loved the way he needed and wanted.  So when it was time to take that next step with Amelia he couldn’t do it. He didn’t want to hold her back from living her dreams. He loved her too much to hold her back. 

It has been three years since Amelia and Aaron have seen each other.  She gets a phone call one day regarding her father’s health and knows that she must move back home to be there for him.  Leaving her boyfriend and life in the city behind, she moves back to her hometown.  The day she moves into her new place she meets her new neighbor and she is completely shocked.  Never did she think she would see Aaron again, let alone live next door to him.  She has a boyfriend who she loves.  Aaron had never stop loving her.  He knows that she is not available but that doesn’t mean he is going to give up.  If being friends with her first will help get her back then that is what he will do.  But after three years will he still feel worthy of her love?  Can she forgive him enough to even be just friends with him?  So many what ifs.  But the one thing you know for sure is that Aaron is a man who still is deeply in love with his ex and he has every intention of showing her how much and make her his again.

What I loved about Aaron was how easily he was there for Amelia.  He never seemed to have a hidden agenda.  He was there as her neighbor, as her friend and whatever else she needed him to be.  Loving her and being there for her just came so easy to him.  

I love a second chance love story, especially when one of the two characters has moved on to another relationship.  It adds another element to the story, in some way adding suspense and angst to the story.  And not necessarily the kind of angst that causes all sorts of anxiety, but more like the kind where you want so bad for the heroine to give into her feelings, leaving her current boyfriend behind.   And yes that may not be the nicest thing, but when it comes to Amelia and Aaron it was how I felt.  I wanted her to see how much Aaron loved her, how much he regretted everything that he did.  I waited for that moment when it all came together, that moment that you knew would make you happy.  

Meghan Quin did a wonderful job with this story.  It was slow paced where Amelia and Aaron are concerned.  This is not one of those second chance romances where they jump right back into and live happily ever after.  This is more of a slow burn, where Aaron has to earn his second chance and Amelia is conflicted when it comes to her feelings for both men.  I loved the banter between Aaron and Ameila and how easy it was for them.  As always Ms. Quinn made me laugh and gave me all the feels with this book.  There were a few moments that did seem to drag for me and there is that moment in th book that you ar waiting for, knowing it will happen soon.  But for me it seemed like the wait was too long….lol But otherwise I loved and enjoyed this story. 



Why? Why does he have to magically appear in my life? Moving back to Binghamton, I thought about the possibility of maybe running into him, but I thought it unlikely, something that would never really happen.

Boy, was I wrong.

What a sick joke life is playing on me.

Aaron Walters, the boy who broke me into pieces is my neighbor.

I can’t fathom the impact I feel already.

Seeing him in hip-hugging jeans and a tight, plain shirt did a number on me. It kept me up all night as memories of what we used to have flooded my mind.

His voice.

His stature.

The way he used to kiss my neck.

The way I felt so protected in his arms.

Too bad his arms couldn’t protect me from his devastating, heart-breaking self.

And hell, he looked good. Too good.

He’s always been tall with handsome features and a chiseled jaw, but now he’s bulked up to the point that I could see his abs flexing under his shirt, the same shirt that stretched over his biceps.

But it wasn’t his muscles or handsome features that once again made my heart ache, it was those eyes. So bright, so blue, so kind, but still so sad. It reminded me of the first day I met him, of the day he stole my heart from every other man on the market.

Broken, unsure, yet yearning for love. It was all there, and like experiencing a moment of déjà vu, I was transported back into a time when I felt invisible, like I could conquer anything with him at my side.

Once again, I was wrong.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
