Brothers Jude and Ryan McAllister are inseparable. When Jude stepped in to raise Ryan after the death of their mother, it became them against the world. But the scars it left were bone-deep. Then Lizzie Price comes along.
Lizzie hopes Ryan’s kindness can help heal her wounds from a toxic relationship. But when she meets Jude, their powerful attraction makes him difficult to resist. The problem is, Lizzie doesn’t realize Jude and Ryan are brothers, and they don’t know they’re falling for the same girl.
By the time the truth comes out, everyone is in too deep. Ryan is in love, Jude is in denial, and Lizzie wants both brothers. All of them agree that no one deserves to get hurt. But love and desire have a way of testing even the strongest bonds.
DAWN’S 5 STAR REVIEW
Tell me how this ends by Victoria De La O is not your run of the mill love triangles filled with debauchery and indulgence. It is a story that is uniquely woven with devotion, loyalty and selflessness… Three broken people struggling with their own inner turmoil, who ultimately put each other’s happiness before their own… Two brothers that not only share an incomparable love for one another, but the affections of one girl. Both needing her for different reasons and her needing them just as much.
“Most heartbreaking things are done out of love.”
What would you do if the person you loved the most, fell for the same girl as you? Would you be selfish or selfless? Knowing either way you will be hurting… could you do the right thing? Tell me how this ends is the perfect title for this book. Expect the unexpected… It’s way more then it’s synopsis. There are many wonderful messages throughout the book. Some of its contents include: sacrifice, maturing, self reflection and learning ones self worth.
Two beautiful brothers. Who are wonderful in their own ways….
Jude is the older brother. He is mister cocky and confident. He’s not one to be tide down. The love em and leave em type. He had to grow up fast… He’s always taken care of his younger brother. He’s the strong one and the man of the house but often aren’t the strongest people the most broken?? Jude is closed off and runs from his feelings…. (btw I LOVE HIM)
Ryan the younger brother. He is so sweet, gentle, romantic and less confident. He wears his heart on his sleeve….
This choice should be easy for Lizzie…
I adored this girl. She’s been through a lot but stayed true to herself and always put everyone’s feelings above her own. She has a huge heart and it’s big enough to love both boys! Egh. What’s a girl to do, when your heart and head are at odds???
It’s hard to believe this is a debut book. It reads with an effortless fluidity and the craftsmanship of a seasoned author. The characters and plot are complex and vivid. I was completely transported into their world and I felt all their emotions. It was well paced, disclosing its many layers slowly, as it drew me in further and further.
I am soooo looking forward to more books in this series.
