Matt is adorable and I love it when all his brothers are featured in a scene - he'd be the perfect mate for anyone. Aubrey is the one most reviewers had problems with and though he's not one of my favourite characters and he's totally messed-up and ass-backwards in a lot of ways, I still respected J.L. for writing him with continuity. He didn't go through any big revelations or changes that would have turned his character into someone else - he made the small changes he needed to do to be with the mate he knew he loved. I may be in the minority in my thinking but I found Aubrey to be a very interesting, complex character to read. And of course, I loved seeing Keaton and Chay again since they still remain my fave pairing and Little Bit my fave character.(less)

I have to admit I was a little confused with the sudden introduction of so many characters right at the beginning, especially when no last names (I never knew right off the bat that they were all related so that was part of the confusion) were mentioned, nor relationship to the main character for a while.
I loved Micah - strong, independent, responsible and from what I could tell beautiful and sensitive. I would have liked to know his age a little sooner in the book since he came across much older than he actually was - that's just a quirk of mine I guess - I like to know ages. It took me a while to warm up to Tucker, he just seemed so brash and unfeeling that I didn't want Micah to be with him at all. Eventually he grew on me and I accepted that he was hiding some feelings inside and just acting like a jerk on the outside.
The solution to the plot drama - contesting the will - seemed really sudden to me, and also the realization that grandpa had been living a double life, but nonetheless, I still enjoyed this especially since the author is a favourite of mine. (less)
