Series: Love Brothers book 1
Author: Liz Crowe
A Family Saga with humor, heat and heart–not to mention beer, bourbon and basketball!
Antony Love is the quintessential responsible oldest brother of a boisterous, Italian/Irish family, placed in charge at a young age by his parents who are busy running the family business. He manages his siblings with a fair but iron hand, until his life is shattered by personal tragedy leaving him the shell of the man he once was.
When outspoken matriarch Lindsay Halloran Love becomes ill, the youngest brother Aiden shows up at Antony’s garage, having dropped out of school (again), needing work and a place to crash. Antony provides both, with three caveats: “Don’t smoke in my truck, don’t be late for work, and don’t mess with my girlfriend.”
But Aiden Love, budding novelist, gets one glimpse of Rosalee Norris, young widow of Antony’s lifelong best friend and all bets are off.
What a fantastic journey!! A year in the life of the Love family as they fight to not only find their place amongst each other but fight for their mother’s life…
A lot of 1st in series books I read get bogged down with so much background trying to introduce/tell us who all the characters are, I think the thing that strikes me the most is that this absolutely did not feel that way. I fell instantly in love with the world that Liz Crowe created and WOW the potential for more stories is so exciting to me! These are flawed people who love each other and hurt each other but at the end of the day they are family and when the sun rises tomorrow they will still be family.
Liz pegged it perfectly on Facebook when she described the Love Brothers as a “family saga” – think Brothers and Sisters but in Kentucky not California! Perfection!!
