Rachel Porter, a romance writer, has told her three sons tales of finding their true soul mate since they were just boys. She lives with the belief that there is but one match for every person. Now as men, they have yet to discover their soul mates. That is, until they come home…

Ryan Porter, Rachel’s oldest son, needs a change from his busy city lifestyle. After five years of living in New York and establishing his own real estate firm, something is still missing. When a family tragedy brings Ryan back to his family’s rural home, he meets Tyra. She just might be the catalyst for the change he needs, redirecting the course of his life. But first he must accept his relationship with his parents and embrace Tyra’s secrets. 


My Review

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Ryan is very successful in the Real Estate business. He left home seven years ago to pursue his dreams in the city. He lived with his girlfriend Kimmi but his life revolved more around his work than his personal one. Kimmi was very self centred and liked the lifestyle, which Ryan could provide, hence an unhappy relationship. 

When Ryan received a call from his mother to inform him that his dad was involved in a car accident and was now in the hospital, Ryan didn't hesitate to pack straight away but refused to allow Kimmi to accompany him. If anything, he couldn't get away from her fast enough. 

When he arrived, he met with his mother and younger brother Henry who had never left home and helped to run the family business. He was shocked to find out that his dad's condition was critical and it was a question of wait and see. His brother Davis was in the Marines and obtained leave to come and visit his father too. It had been a long time since all three brothers had been together and despite the situation and the anger about what was happening, their love for their mother and for each other was very palpable. 

Ryan was angry with himself and felt guilty for not visiting sooner or more often. He was full of regrets, when he saw his dad in a coma. They took turn in staying in the hospital, then one night decided to go to one of their old haunt which they frequently visited when they were younger.

When they arrived, they noticed three girls playing pool and Ryan was instantly attracted to Tyra, who in turn liked what she saw too. They ended up on the dance floor and afterwards spent a passionate and sizzling night together. Tyra had heard about Ryan from his mother and felt like she knew him but as far as he was concerned, it was just a fling before going back to the city but the more time they spent together, the more confused he became about his feelings. 

Then, the inevitable happened and Ryan's dad died and his emotions were all over the place, regretting the things he never got to share with his father when he was in the city, whilst still trying to work out his feelings for Tyra. His mother had always told her sons that everyone had a soulmate, something Ryan always rationalised. 

Was his mother right? Was Tyra meant to be his soulmate? It sure looked that way, when they were together and Tyra was totally smitten but Ryan remained sceptical despite the way he felt about her. Will he eventually admit that he was in love with her and leave his city life to be with her? 

I liked the way the brothers interacted with each other and how supportive they were towards each other and their mother, who was a kind and considerate lady. I also liked the friendship between Henry and Tyra as well as his fondness towards Tyra's daughter Layne, a real sweetheart. 

This is the first book which I have read by this author and will certainly look out for more of her work and hope that there is more to come about Davis and Henry. I would mrecommend this book to those who like reading a sexy romance with an emotional rollercoaster.
