3.5 ⭐️

"She is my one great love, and I know it will stay that way. I want to grow old and gray with her. I want to hold her hand every day for the rest of my life. I want to spend the rest of my life making her happy."

I'm pretty sure they were virgins. It wasn't mentioned if hero was with another girl during the 5 years of their friendship but they did say they wanted their first time to be special so maybe he was? I know for sure she was a virgin..

Hero was very mature and he wasn't a manwhore.

This is the story of Tyson Caine, the oldest brother in a family of three sons.

I have to confess that I had really high expectations of this book reading the blurb. Unfortunately it didn't deliver in my eyes.

The plot is quite interesting and I love best friends to lovers but there were so many things going on in this book (abuse, responsibilities, single-parenting, tornado, etc.) that the point was a bi

It has been a while since I read a book by Aleya Michelle and was pleased to get an early copy of Tyson Caine.

This is a super sweet friends to lovers story with some darker underlying issues.

I couldn't help feeling for Tyson as he takes on the world, takes care of his brothers and deals with his growing feelings for his best friend Brooklyn.

And Brooklyn, I just adored her from the first word to the last. She was this beacon of light that just outshone

Tyson Caine by Aleya Michele is the first book in the Brothers in Arms series . It is a sweet friends to lovers story and all the uncertainty that goes with it .

Tyson Caine is a seventeen year old that takes care of his brothers . He has a drunk for a father and a mother that will not rock the boat . Add to it that his feelings for his best friend Brooklyn keep growing as he notices the woman she is growing into and the uncertainty if she feels
Tyson loves Brooklyn. To the point that its beyond love. Only catch? He doesn't want to let her in on that secret and ruin their friendship.

Tyson loves his family. He will go to the ends of the earth to fight for them and keep them together. You can see that fierceness in the way he takes care of his father.

This is my confession: This was a quick, solid 3.5 read. IMO definitely more geared for the YA scene than NA. Tyson is the real gem of this book. I would have liked to see more of Tyson and B

This is the first time I have read any of this authors work, and I was not disappointed. Tyson loves football, and his best friend, as well as being responsible for his family. Brooklyn is a shy girl, who lives to dance, as well as Tyson’s best friend.
This is a beautifully told story, which had me hooked from the very beginning. This storyline is about taking chances, responsibility, best friends, and love. The author has done a great job in writing this story, and I recommend her work to

Tyson Caine is the oldest of three brothers, with a father who gets drunk all the time, and a mother that won't rock the boat. He's a seventeen year old, that spends most of his time being responsible so he can take care of his brothers. When he's not busy with the boys, he spends his time with Brooklyn, who has been his best friend for years. The problem is that he's fallen in love with her, and he doesn't know how to tell her because he's terrified that it will ruin their friendship. Brooklyn ...more
This is the first book in Brother in Arms and about the oldest brother, Tyson. Let's just say that this is more than just a young adult read (cause I am not young) and enjoyed reading this book and cannot wait until I read about Tyler and Thomas.

Tyson is the oldest and acts way more like an adult than a seventeen year old. He is mature and helps out with his brothers making sure they are taken care of and the love of football those brothers share makes this story come together and shows that th

DISCLAIMER: I received a copy of this book (through Raven Publicity) in exchange for honest review. I shall make an effort to avoid sharing spoilers . . . not too many . . . I'll try. *winks*

Though this book mainly follows Tyson's and Brooklyn's perspectives; however, we do catch a glimpse of Tyler and Thomas, when moments with them matter most. The author brings into perspective the fine line between loving correction and discipline, and aggressive abuse. There truly is a fine line and I think

Tyson Caine is the eldest brother of three brothers,Tyler and Thomas are 16 and 14, he seems to take on a lot of responsibility when it comes to his two younger brothers like for example makes sure they get out of bed etc, which i found strange as both are 16 & 14 years old, his father is a drunk and his mother wants to keep the peace all round.

Tyson's best friend is Brooklyn, he's always been there for her as she has for him, both start to see each other in a different light but are too scared

I cannot with this book. I adore best friends to more stories. I love boys who take on the world. I don't know if it was just when I started reading it or if I just couldn't get into the story or what, but it just wasn't for me.

Really good story that might even feel a little closer to home since I'm the older daughter in my home. Made me remember those high school days, first love, and making plans for the future; a time were things were simpler and possibilities were infinite. This story is a page turner and will definitely touch your soul and shed some tears.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I was not disappointed.
The books starts out pretty slow but picks up about halfway through. I loved getting to know Tyson and his 3 brothers. The things that they went through explains why each of them are the way they are. I am absolutely in love with Brooke. Best friends can result in love and I truly believe that.

Being best friends for so long, would you make the leap of faith to take things to the next level? This is what Tyson and Brooklyn face.

Through the ups and downs of being the eldest brother in a unstable family, Tyson is way beyond his years, being forced to be the parent, I believe, and his brothers protectors. With losing her own mother, Brooklyn also comes across a lot more mature than her years too. This is where it shows how compatible Tyson and Brooklyn are foe each other. With some well i

Aleya Michelle has done it again, written a fabulous story!
Tyson Caine being the oldest of three sons feels every responsibility he has placed on his shoulders and then some.
Brooklyn is his friend of five years, they both know each other but then see the other in a new light.
The Caine family has its battles and challenges too.
This young adult romance is delightful and fresh. Aleya Michelle really knows how to build character descriptions so that you, the reader, feel like you know them personall

Loved loved this book.

Once again Aleya gives us a great book and a great start to a season of books.

We met Tyson the oldest of the Caine brothers who all play football. Next there is Tyler and finally Thomas.

Tyson and Broklyn have been best friends for years but now they are getting feelings for one another. Can they work up the courage to tell each other and if they can will their relationship last or are they just meant to be friends?

All these things and more are answered.

Tyson Caine (Brothers in Arms #1) by Aleya Michelle

This novel earns a rating of two stars from me. I felt it was a little under-developed and had to follow the story line. The summary/description lead me to believe it was more of a love story between Tyson and his high school sweetheart but it seemed more about Tyson and his two younger brothers and their struggling relationship with their father. The story line swapped between Tyson's love interest and his family/home life and didn't really rel
