I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent,

Deep down I know I was made for loving Amelia, but despite that, our paths never perfectly crossed. You can love someone with all of your heart, but if the timing is off, it never works out.






I had no idea when I read the synopsis for THE OTHER BROTHER, that this was the book I’ve been anxiously waiting for Meghan Quinn to write. If you’ve read ”My Best Friend’s Ex” and ”Twisted Twosome”, then you have already met our hero, Aaron Walters ‘aka’

When Amelia learns about her ailing father, she has no other choice but to move back to her hometown and take care of him. But she's confident the move is going to be okay because her boyfriend is in the process of moving with her, she has a new job, and a cute house to rent.

At least she thought everything was going to be o

This book gave me all the feels! Aaron Walters is one of my favorite male characters of all times! He was sweet, loyal, caring, loving and so sexy, I couldn't help but fall in love with him. Amelia was great too! I really liked her, and I understood some of her choices, even though I was always rooting for her and Aaron to be together so sometimes I got impatient with her.

This story is so beautiful. Its about second chances and true love. I really like second chance romances and this one is one

Meghan Quinn never ceases to amaze me with her heartfelt and beautiful stories. This is why I automatically read her books, most of the time without even having to read the blurb. I always know she will deliver and she has never let me down. In The Other Brother, readers will meet (or be reacquainted with) Smalls. If you have read her last few releases (which I would recommend fully) you will have already met him and gotten a

Oh gosh! I did not want this book to end! We met Aaron in My Best Friends Ex and Twisted Twosome but this can be read as a standalone. I thought Racer was by far my favorite hero but he will have to move over and make space for Aaron "Smalls" Walters. This guy had me SWOONING! I loved this gorgeous, sexy, fun, emotional, loving man.

This is a second chance romance at its finest. Amelia moves back to her hometown when her father's health takes a turn for the worst. She of course ends up being neig

OMG! I loved this SO MUCH! I’ve been waiting for Aaron’s book since the day we were introduced to him in this fabulous world that Meghan Quinn has created! His happily ever after couldn’t have been more perfect for him! Amelia and Aaron were INCREDIBLE together! Their chemistry was electric, the banter between the two was so entertaining! I couldn’t have asked for a better coupling!

No real review here except to say I loved this series and hope it could go on and on...Maybe with Trey?

Meghan Quinn is a master at mixing humor and drama and sexiness like no other author, and her heroes in this series are to die for . They made me laugh out loud, roll my eyes, and every one of them melted my heart. Loved all the heroines too.

The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn took its toll on me in a few ways; the hero’s childhood and adolescence was hard to come to grips with, the heroine’s plight with her father hit a bit too close to home, and while I was truly happy for these two to reconnect and get together and there was no physical cheating, I did feel like there was emotional cheating which to me is just as bad. I had to really work to finish this book and that’s a first for me from this author and I’m glad I did finish it,

I can only judge by title and blurb: “me don’t like it”. Brothers, triangle and quoting the blurb: “Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?”

I am passing LIGHT YEARS away.
Obrigada. De nada

See?? All kinds of no good. Imo.
Physical cheating/emotional cheating: all the same. Hiding “small” details makes it even worse.

A remarkable, heartwarming and palpable second chance love story that ignites and fuels all the emotions. Meghan Quinn clearly has set the standard when it comes to incorporating humor into her books but in her latest release, The Other Brother, Meghan has elevated her literary prowess as she allowed readers to embark on a sentimental love story that made your heart burst with all the feels.

The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn ~ 4.5 Stars

"The harder you love, the harder you fall."

True to Meghan Quinn’s style, The Other Brother is another fun, light-hearted, romantic read. We have met Aaron before in the other books My Best Friend Ex and Twisted Twosome which are both awesome standalones about Aaron’s friends Tucker and Racer. Although Aaron’s story is a little more heartbreaking and has a more serious tone to it, you will still get a large dose of fun, angst, sexual tension, and sweet

The Other Brother by Meghan Quinn was such a good second chance love story.

The storyline is well written, from the first page I was drawn in and I found myself reading late into the night. I just didn't want to put it down!
Aaron and Amelia's story made me laugh, they made me swoon, they frustrated me on a few occasions and they made me shed a tear or two.

If like me you've read My Best Friend's Ex & Twisted Twosome you'll already be familiar with the sweetheart named Aaron aka "Small

A second chance romance where the entire situation just seemed too neatly contrived – and not quite believable on many levels. From the book blurb, you would assume correctly that there's a third party involved in somewhat of a triangle.

The second chance at romance between Amelia and Aaron was a slow burner – which was well paced and, in my view, a very positive addition to the storyline. Aaron does a ton of groveling – until he’s stomached all he can. By the time his decision was made, I was m

I finally have the answer to that question...

Okay, so this is actually the first Meghan Quinn book I have read. I have a way of not starting a series where I should but this series can be read as standalones so whatever. This book started off strong. I flew through the first 50% and then the rest took me forever to finish.

I can't handle too much perfection. Like give me from realistic characters, please. Aaron and his dialogue just made me roll my eyes. Like what man says "contour" ...?

I love second chance romance stories but when you combine that with funny, witty banter and a hero who has come full circle from a past of pain and hurt, you basically had me from "hello." lol
Meghan Quinn is the queen of wit and humor and she has shown what an amazing author she is by also writing stories from the heart.
Aaron Walters and Amelia dated when they were younger, having such heat and passion and love for each other that you knew that they were meant to be together forever.

Well, I guess I really should call him Aaron from now on, even though he’s been Smalls for two books, but seriously!
This man was just….*happy dopey sigh* everything!

And I thank the powers that be for that because, as we all know, the whole love triangle trope isn’t my favorite one, not that I hate it or anything, but I just don’t readily reach for it if given a choice. But, for more reasons than one, I really didn’t have a choice because I wanted

Have you seen this cover, oh it fits this character to a T! Aaron Walters is one special man indeed. Between the three best friends, Smalls is the most sensitive and wears his heart on his sleeve. He is a very confident man, although he still feels like the underdog compared to his brothers. He is so sweet and caring but he doesn’t see his self worth. Nevertheless, he has set himself up very well, he’s in a nice neighborhood and has renovated his home and it’s not so janky either. Life is lookin ...more

I was on the fence about giving this story 4-4.5 stars up until the very last words of this book!! As soon as I read the dedication at the end, I balled, recorded the review snippet, and immediately gave this book 5 HUGE stars.

I am so glad I decided to read my first Meghan Quinn book all that time ago. Each book is so unique, but so far they never fail to suck me in and The Other Brother did exactly that. The prologue really sets the stage and had me glued to the pages until bed. I woke up this morning at 5:45am to read, at 7am I said one more chapter then I will shower for work. At 7:45am I said to myself I am at 86% I can finish this before work. At 8:15am I realized that I will definitely be late for work and decid ...more

”The harder you love, the harder you fall.”


Sometimes you don’t have to read but a few lines or pages of a story to fall hard in love. When you end the first and last chapters of a tale in tears, tears that remain etched in your eyes the whole time reading, you know you’ve met your emotional match. Meghan Quinn’s The Other Brother was MY EMOTIONAL MATCH. Edge to edge. Feel to feel.

If you have read any of my reviews before, then you know I am a HUGE Meghan Quinn fan. Every book I have read by her, I have thoroughly enjoyed. And The Other Brother is no different.

The Other Brother is Aaron (Smalls)'s book. If you have read any of Meghan's previous books (Co-Wrecker, My Best Friend's Ex) then you know exactly who I am talking about. If you have not, well you are in for quite a treat.

The Other Brother is both a heartbreaking and uplifting contemporary romance that will completely consume you from the start. I was sucked into the story from the first sentence of the Prologue and was taken on an emotional ride. I laughed. I teared up. My heart beat erratically and most importantly I absolutely fell in love with both Aaron and Amelia. I couldn't have asked for anything more for their story. It was everything I wanted and everything I needed.

This book is the third book of this author’s standalone romantic comedies about three best friends that have a construction business together. This is Aarons book and I was not disappointed. I laughed, I cried, I got mad and I held my breath a few times! What an emotional roller coaster this was. All the books have been laugh out loud funny, but they also had an emotional side to them. This one gutted me. My heart hurt for both Aaron and Amelia. Aaron had a terrible childhood and the circumstanc ...more

“Soon, droves of children start to show up, keeping us rather busy. We start tallying up the number of Trolls, Batmans, Lego men, and princesses we see. The most popular costume? Batman and Superwoman with the fabrics and accessories varying from child to child. But my favorite so far is the girl who dressed as Little Debbie, but then again, I may be biased.

“I think she might be my new favorite,” Emma says as a little girl dressed as a nurse walks away.

“That’s because you’re a nurse, but you can’t play favorites,” I say, reminding Emma of the rules.

She levels with me. “This coming from the guy whose favorite child was dressed as Little Debbie.”

“Come on.” I lean back in my chair and motion to my head. “She had the rim of blue on her hat. That’s attention to detail.”

“And good fucking parenting,” Tucker chimes in, and we clink our beer bottles together.

Amelia chuckles next to me as Emma shakes her head. “Ridiculous. What about you, Amelia? What costume has been your favorite so far?”

“Hmm, it’s been a tough competition. There has been some real winning costumes and some absolute piss-poor ones.” She shakes her head. “Just because you put a scarf around your neck and call yourself Jack Frost doesn’t mean you dressed up.”

“Ugh, that costume was dumb.”

“It shouldn’t be referred to as a costume, but that’s beside the point.” I like how much Amelia is getting into this little pretend competition. She’s a far cry from the girl who first came home earlier. I love that having Tucker and Emma over has given me more time with Amelia, getting to know the woman she is today, but also managed to put that beautiful smile back on her face.

“So who takes the cake for you?” I ask, nudging her leg with mine.

Smiling up at me, she says, “Hands down it’s the little boy who dressed as Dwight Schrute from The Office. I think I giggled for five minutes straight after he left. That costume was spot on.”

“Oh shit, you’re right,” I reply as Emma and Tucker agree with me. “He even had the watch calculator.”

“And the small nose Dwight always complains about.” Emma chuckles. “Yeah, he has to be the winner.”

“Now, now, now, let’s not get too hasty. Little Debbie is still in the running,” Tucker points out.

Amelia leans forward, seeming incredibly comfortable, and says, “There is no way Little Debbie beats Dwight. Sorry, dude.”

The shocked look on Tucker’s face is comical. He’s just been put in his place and the old Amelia has returned.

I fucking love it.”
