BLOG TOUR – Three Brothers by Nicole Williams
New Adult/Adult Romance
Release: January 20, 2015
I grew up with three brothers. They weren’t tied to me by blood, but our connection went beyond genetics or bearing the same last name. Our connection was forged the summer I turned thirteen, the summer my mom ended her life and left me in the custody of John Armstrong, a man I’d never met. Packing all I owned in a couple of boxes, I left the familiarity of the big city and headed west to Red Mountain Ranch, set in a lonely valley outside of Jackson Hole.
Nothing was as it seemed at Red Mountain—it didn’t take long for me to figure that out. John was kind to me but distant, as if he was afraid to let anyone get too close. His three teenage sons had their own devices for keeping love as far away as they could. The eldest distracted himself with cheap relationships that had a shelf-life of one night. The middle son threw himself into the rigor of running a ranch, and the third wielded cruelty and mind-games in his quest to keep people from getting close.
Time has gone by, and I’ve spent those years trying to forget the brother I’d fallen for—the biggest mistake of my life.
Finally, I’ve moved on. Finally, I’m back. But what I didn’t realize was that running away from the wrong brother meant I’d also run away from the right one. The one who’d been there for me all along, waiting in his brother’s shadow for the day I either would or could move on.
But a decade is a long time to wait. Has the brother I should have chosen all of those years ago moved on too? Am I about to discover that my biggest mistake wasn’t falling in love with the wrong brother, but failing to return the love of the right one sooner?
Does unrequited love have an expiration date?
I’m about to find out.
Abby’s review 5 stars
Have you ever started a book and right away you thought, ‘Big Screen’? I finished this book last night and I’m thinking about what younger actors could fill roles like Robert Redford or Kevin Costner could have filled. Now they are too old for these roles. Is there a modern day cowboy that could exude everything that would do this book justice?
Nicole Williams is at her finest in Three Brothers. She paints a tale of a tragedy, love, heartache and beauty like no other.
Sometimes when I read, every book feels like it is trying to go where no one has gone before and that we should be getting that shock factor. In Three Brothers, there are shocks and surprises, but one of the things I loved most about it, was its good old fashion romance at it’s finest.
This book is beautiful and as I read each word I felt Williams talent stitch little pieces of beauty into my heart that I’ll never forget. To me, that is one of the most beautiful things about reading and an author’s greatest gifts. When you can close your eyes and picture the story scene for scene even after the words The End have been written.
I urge you to fall in love with a cowboy, I certainly did.
Author’s Note: This book is a “sweet” romance that isn’t overly sexy. Fans of LOST & FOUND will be interested in THREE BROTHERS.
I’m the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of the CRASH series (HarperTeen, S&S UK), LOST & FOUND series, UP IN FLAMES (S&S UK), The EDEN TRILOGY, and a handful of others. I write stories about everyday kinds of people who find themselves in extraordinary kinds of situations. I tell love stories with happy endings because I believe in making the world a better place, and that’s one tiny way I can make it so. I’m one of those people who still believe in true love and soul mates, and would rather keep my head in the clouds any day over having my feet firmly on the ground.
