Family Values

Series :  Lone Star Lovers

Publisher : Samhain Publishing, Ltd.

Release Date : November 3rd 2015



When coming between three brothers, it’s best to just let go.

Angelina Flores lived a perfect ranch-kid childhood, complete with three princes on horseback who treated their housekeeper’s daughter like a princess. At age eighteen, the fairytale came crashing down when she realized she had to choose between Brand, Nate and Eli McAffee.

And when she did choose one she lost all three.

She’s older now. Wiser, thanks to her college education and a few years distance. A distance she’d planned to maintain until her mother begs her to fill in at the ranch while she takes care of a sick relative.

The minute her boots hit the front porch, the memories come flooding back, right along with the hunger. It’s tough to put the past behind her when temptation is so close. Especially since the brothers seem bound and determined to woo her. Separately. Together. Whatever it takes to keep her right where she belongs in their arms.

Warning: Three cowboys all aiming for the same goal, and one woman with the cajones to give it to them or wipe the floor with their butts, if necessary.

Family Values had a lot of promise. It was a second chance romance and it was ménage . Two things that  I always enjoy when I come to read a book. However there is a big but for  me  with this story it was only novella  length and there was so much unsaid that could have been said .

In a classic cliché set up , Angelina is the daughter of the McAfee housekeeper and she was always treated as one of the family. Brand, Nate and Eli viewed them as family and with their  own parents dead. They treated each other like blood. However as they grew up it was obvious that Angelina was becoming more then a sister to them. They were falling in love.

They were her princes and she their princess but it went all so wrong.  Now  they  gets a second chance when in the present Devlin brings them together in this novella  and a chance to sort themselves out.

It is  not easy to sort a world of pain  and we are quickly thrown in the deep end as we watch Angelina returned  not knowing where she stands . Angelina has fallen for all of them and when she left at the tender age of eighteen she didn’t know what to do. Four years later , she is still the same. She loves them all, but each brother  is different.  Each have clear characteristics that make them standouts  but Brand the oldest and the head of family  is the one we have to deal with the problems.  Those problems are complicated by his younger brothers who know what they want to  do but can’t  as Brand is questioning things.

Delvin delivered one sexy novella with some depth and feelings. Whilst the aim  focus on Brand, I wished we got to see how much exactly affected the brothers as they had some past hurt as well. Well Angelina proclaimed she loved all brothers , I wished this conveyed as well as the decisions she made and the fact that Brand was at her fore mind when she did.  It seemed tiny little bit of favorism.

Otherwise it was well written book that has come a re-read favourite   because the tale that can be found under the cover and it combines two of my favourite things in a romance.
