It’s always a little risky picking up a book that forms part of a series, and the final book at that, but Denise Grover Swank is an author I’ve wanted to read for a while now and I do love a second chance romance so it was a risk I was prepared to take. And it paid off because Always You was an easy-read family-feel romance which brought that small town atmosphere I have a soft spot for.

“You and I are ancient history. I can keep it in the past.”

I have been reading a lot of single parent books lately and I have been loving them. This one happens to be a second chance romance as well and I couldn't wait to read it!

Matt knew that Anna was the one as soon as they started dating in college. But when he proposed and thought they would spend the rest of their lives together, Anna bolts. All Matt wanted was to make Anna his wife and have kids, but Anna wasn't ready. Years later, Matt is coaching his five-year-old nephew's soccer team and loves

I was provided an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. 

This is my second book from Denise Grover Swank and it honestly was not a disappointment. I love second chance romances especially an emotional one like what college sweethearts Anna and Matt went through. Matt always knew Anna was the one. He fell completely head over heels for her when he first met her and knew his heart would forever be hers whether he wanted it to be true or not. It pained me to re

Always You will be available November 28, 2017.

I read the first book in this series, Only You, not too long ago and really enjoyed it. It was my first Denise Grover Swank book and her writing is a mix of romance, humor, and family and I knew I had to read more from her.

Always You follows the last man standing from the Bachelor Brotherhood, an agreement Matt and his two best friends made to give up on relationships after

I am a huge fan of Denise Grover Swank and every book she has written and Always You is right up there with the best, talk about the sweetest, saddest most loving love story ever.

Matt is our last bachelor in this trilogy but he gave up on love 12yrs ago he knows he will never get it back.

Anna was once you and in love but she walked away from him to build a career on the other side of the world, now she is a single mum and has come home to help her aging father after he had a fall.

Another great book in this series.

So, the backstory - three best friends (male) realise that they have dated a series of extreme (for want of a better word) women and swear a pact to avoid all women. Of course, immediately afterwards they find their one true loves.

This is the third and final book in the Bachelor Brotherhood Series, and even though I am sad its over, I feel this series went out on a huge high. This is a sweet second chance, contemporary romance that will give you all the emotions and elations.

Matt is the last of the bachelors to stick with the pact he made with his two best friends Kevin and Tyler. For Matt, there was no one who could compare to his college sweet heart Anna who moved away 12 years ago. So when she returns home for a short

‘Bachelor Brotherhood’ series is my second series from Denise Grover Swank and just like ‘Wedding Pact’ series I really enjoyed reading it. ‘Always You’ is the third and last book of the ‘Bachelor Brotherhood’ series. Kevin, Tyler and Matt are best friends, who got really unlucky with the women they date so they decide to make a pact to avoid women and relationships. However, their bachelor brotherhood pact doesn’t stand a chance when they start finding their true love. After Kevin and Tyler fin ...more

Make an appointment with your dentist, as Always You is so darn sweet it will give you a toothache!

This is my first Denise Grover Swank read, and even though this is book 3 in a series it did not affect my enjoyment.

This is a sweet and tender second chance romance, as we all have that one that got away, and we are full of what ifs, right.

Matt has got to be the sweetest, most patient guy I have ever read. I know that if things played out in my life like they did i

Oh gosh, this book kept me on the edge of my seat, hand on my heart and tears welling up in my eyes as I fretted about how on earth Matt and Anna will possible get their Happily Ever After. The writing was at times a little distanced/clinical, which is the only thing that kept this from being a 5 star read for me. Also, I didn't appreciate Matt and his buddies calling Anna a bitch like they were. I can see being hurt over a rejected proposal, but if you felt ready to propose to someone shouldn't ...more

Always You is easily my favorite of Denise Grover Swank's Bachelor Brotherhood series! I absolutely loved Matt, Anna, and all the soccer kids! It's a first love - second chance story that I absolutely adored! The pacing is quick and the story offers is a perfect blend of heart warming romance, a hefty dose of humor, all the while being painfully real. I don’t know if I was particularly hormonal while reading this, but I got teary eyed for both Matt and Anna. Out of all the pairings between The W ...more

This is the final book of the Bachelor Brotherhood series. I wish there were more bachelors for Denise to write about because this series was so much fun to read that I am sad to see it end. Always You follows the story of longtime bachelor, Matt, and his ex-girlfriend, Anna. He is living in his hometown helping to raise his nephew when his nephew befriends a new boy. Turns out the boy is his ex’s son. The attraction is still there and they, as a couple, need to figure out how to make their rela ...more

A long lost dream becomes a real life fantasy. When Anna broke Matt's heart, she never thought she'd see him again. Amazing how time and regret can shape a life and give a person the maturity they once lacked. Matt has never gotten over the girl who broke his heart. Can he forgive the girl and accept the woman and mother she has become? Always You is a what - if story of second chances and lasting romances. A little laughter and a heartwarming happily ever after.

I wanted to like this more than I did, considering how much I enjoyed the first book in the series this one spun off from. Sadly though, I just didn't click with this one like I'd hoped. The second chance romance aspect was enjoyable and I found myself falling into the story but somewhere around the halfway mark there was just unnecessary drama with the heroine's ex husband that felt contrived, despite knowing the circumstances surrounding her living situation. And the OOT conclusion where the H

This was by far my favorite book of the Bachelor Brotherhood series. At some parts I laughed until I cried, yet at others I cried because it was so touching. This is a tribute to second chances and a reminder to never give up on love. I absolutely cannot recommend this book enough.

From the very beginning this third installment of this series captured my attention. This isn't a book about two people who meet and start their happily ever after. No, and I think that's what I loved about this story. It's one that many people can relate to. Once again,Denise Grover Swank writes an awesome romance, with some twists and turns along with a hilarious scene at a restaurant. She adds some comedy to the romance

I loved this book. Forget book boyfriends I want Matt as a book husband. He's an amazing character who is so well written. He's strong and protective and the perfect guy. Anna is strong in her own way. From a loveless marriage she has a ton of inner strength. She proves she will do anything she can for her son.
The story line is excellent. Plenty of drama. This book is really fantastic.

The third book in the Bachelor Brotherhood series, Always You is a standalone and a second chance romance novel.

Matt Osborn gets more attention than he wants as the coach for his nephew's soccer team. Since taking of the role, he's got used to the mothers eyeing him up at practice as they wait and watch their kids run around the pitch. When a new boy turns up for practice, he's shocked when the mother speaks to her son, because it's a voice Matt recognises and it belongs to a woman who broke his

My Review:
Ooh, I do love me a second chance at love story and this was a good one.

Matt and Anna dated 12 years ago. Matt thought it was forever; Anna had other ideas. So, when he proposed she broke his heart. Neither one has really been the same since.

But now Anna is back...temporarily. To add insult to injury, she has a 5 yo old son and a divorce under her belt...both things she swore she never wanted when Matt proposed (something that was a complete shock to Matt.)

Always You is the third and last installment from The Bachelor Brotherhood series by Denise Grover Swank. The author brings three best friends together Kevin, Tyler and Matt one last time in this novel. Always You is Matt’s story, the last one of the bachelors from the Bachelor Brotherhood. It’s all about second chances in love (well in first love) and about the importance of family and friends. The book and the whole series are worth reading!!

Always You: Bachelor Brotherhood, Book 3 is by Denise Grover Swank. Denise has taken three of the minor characters from her Wedding Pact series and written their stories. This has turned out to be a great series. The series is well written and the characters are definitely realistic.

It didn’t last long at all as Kevin succumbed almost immediately to Holly and Tyler followed shortly with ...more

I loved ALWAYS YOU by Denise Grover Swank. This novel grabs you right from the beginning, and the engaging plot never loses momentum. The two primary characters, investment banker Anna Fischer, and construction business owner Matt Osborn, have scorching chemistry. Their journey to a second chance at love is replete with desire, forgiveness, and two little five-year-old boys who become the best of friends. This is the third book from the author's BACHELOR BROTHERHOOD series, and it can be enjoyed ...more

“Second chance, 5 stars”

Ahhh…Anna and Matt….I loved them. This is one of those stories where you meet your soulmate too young only to have them show up at the most unlikely time. There is no denying they love each other even after twelve years, but they are older and wiser. They know not everything works out the way you hope, and now they have little people they have to put ahead of themselves.
