Wow, I’m not sure what I was expecting in this 4th book in Lauren Dane’s Brown Siblings series, but I was not expecting Adrian Brown (rock star brother to the heart stopping, swoon-worthy Brody Brown) to totally and completely knock my
pants socks off. But this is a Lauren Dane book and how foolish of me not to expect another devastatingly sexy hero right along with a great book.
I believe Lauren Dane does two things better than most in many of her books: 1) she writes “family” in a way that makes you want to escape inside the one your reading about and 2) she writes a dirty talking hero like none other. In Never Enough, both these talents are on full display. It was so wonderful to revisit so many of the series’ characters in this book, and each of them has their rightful place in the story.
In Never Enough Adrian Brown finally gets his story and his shot at love. The shocker to him is he also gets a son he has never known. When Adrian meets buttoned up Gillian the sparks fly, the heat rises, and my emotions just like Adrian’s and Gillian’s started running all over the place. I needed some kleenex to either wipe my sweaty brow or wipe away my tears.
The book blurb pretty much summarizes the plot so I won’t get into that. What you really need to know is that if you even slightly enjoy a dirty talking hero and a confident heroine who knows how to let loose behind closed doors all wrapped in an interesting and sometimes heart-tugging story, you must read this book! Overall I found the connection between Adrian and Gillian to be a perfect match. I also really enjoyed seeing Adrian stumble through his lack of confidence surrounding being a father. I would have liked to have seen Adrian and his son Miles spend a little more one on one time together, but I think Ms. Dane balances everything in the book in a way that left me fulfilled when I finished.
I don’t think you need to read the other books in the series to follow along but why would you want to miss out! Adrian’s story was the final Brown sibling to get his own book but there are other characters like Raven who have been around who I think deserves her own book. I’m curious where Ms. Dane takes us next.
I finally have a book to add to my Top 10 List for 2011.
He let her go as he tried not to have a fantasy about her polishing the table in nothing but an apron and some heels. Clearly he had some fetish about cleaning and housework. This needed some investigating.
