You can tell that these books are re-releases of older books, and that is sometimes why things bothered me.

With Michael's story I was so annoyed with how he thought that until he was healed and "whole" again that he wasn't worth Kelly's love. I hated how it kept jerking Kelly around. I did love that Michael's foster family was a good one, one that embraced Michael's brothers like their own.

I had some of the same issues with Patrick's story that I did with Michael's. I hated how Patrick jerked Al

This is the story of two of the Devaney Brothers, Michael an ex-SEAL and Patrick, one of the twins that the brothers had not seen since they were two years old. Michael's story is surrounded by his injuries when a sniper shot him and his rehabilitation. His therapist was his best friend's younger sister who had a crush on him since she was a teenager. It was important to put her feelings aside and help Michael walk again because he felt like he had no future without his being a SEAL.

The Devaney Brothers are on a quest to find each other. These two stories are a continuation of this quest. The brothers were abandoned as young children. A new story is added as each one is found. This has been very fun to follow. I have one more brother to catch up with and his story is sitting on my table. I was a little disappointed in Patrick's story as it seemed to have less of a story than the others. Since his odyssey was different from the older brothers, I expected something different. ...more

took longer to read due to cloudy weather and energy levels. great book overall. I wish they would make this a series on tv. the concept is amazing. I like the way things build slowly and things aren't rushed into like in some other books I've read or tried to read. The characters are memorable and believable and the circumstances make the reader sympathize with the character's conflicting emotions. Great read. highly recommend.

Patrick lives alone on a boat. Annie lives alone on the shore. They both have regrets. Patrick treats Annie like crap, Annie fights for his love, knowing she can change him. Unrealistic and more than a little insulting to women everywhere. I always hope that stories will get better, be less predictable, will show more respect, but I am often disappointed.

I really enjoyed The Devaney Brothers series. Each time I read a new borthers story, I kept thinking "thats my favorite story" then I would move on and read about another brother and think "nope, thats my favorite brother" They each have their own story and each brother has to overcome an obstacle to be able to love their lady. In short, its a fun easy read.

Patrick and Alice, Michael and Kelly

I really enjoyed this book. It explored the characters emotions in both books included. Stories about brothers abandon ed by their parents and reconnecting.

hmmm.... no... physical therapist takes on childhood crush as a patient and jumps into a very involved personal relationship, ending up in bed, of course --- SO UNPROFESSIONAL!!! In the real world, this is grounds to be censured and lose her license to practice...

"The friends are the only things I've brought with me through the years that really matter," she says. "I could probably live without one more chintz teacup, another tin-litho sa
