Every Which Way
Sloan Brothers #1
by Calia Read

Published Nov 13, 2012
New Adult Romance

*Self-Purchased ebook*

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Severine Blake has seen far too many friends taken down in the crossfires of dating. She devises a precise course of action to protect her heart. The plan is working very well...until she meets Thayer and Macsen.
When the Sloan brothers come into her life, nothing is the same.

Thayer is self-possessed, arrogant and used to getting what he wants. Being near him leaves Severine unsteady and shaken. He makes her question everything.
Macsen contradicts his brother in every way. His calm personality captivates her. Severine is drawn to him instantly.
But Severine quickly discovers that when you want something, that want can turn wicked. Giving in is not always easy, especially when your heart refuses to give up the fight.

What little illusion of love Severine has is soon destroyed. Every option is broken, and the protection she has built around her heart instantly crumbles.

There's just no right way with the Sloan brothers.

My Review:

Wow. I really enjoyed this book! I wasn't confused as several other reviewers were during the first half though. I really enjoyed the entire novel.

Sev is such a great female lead and when you put Sev, Lily & Anne together, they create the perfect balance of female emotions.

I did not like Macsen at all. The entire time Sev is with him, I keep rolling my eyes because there is not a single thing in Mac that I find attractive. Not one bit. >_< I could see where Calia was heading though - it was a great proven point: don't judge people before you actually get to know who they really are. I adored Thayer. Yes, he came off as a complete asshat in the beginning, but he always seemed like the better brother to me.

I loved the chemistry of Sev with the brothers. Sometimes it was effortlessly easy, sometimes it was brutally tense & full of emotion.

The ending = First I was like "sighhh, this is great" and then all I could think about was "uggggg! That's how I feel about that!" I can't wait to get my hands on book two and continue the story!
