I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is a story of Janine who gets raped, keeps the baby, brothers bf steps in(after 3 years) and offers to raise baby and she gets blackmailed by baby daddy. Yeah that's a lot but it is only the start in this book. This book seemed to lag in some spots and could have been shorter. The characters lacked depth, no emotional connection. I love Ashley Rose and her work but this falls short of her other works. ( )

***I Received this book from a libraryThing Giveaway***

Not the best book I've read but not the worst either. Some scenes were completely unbelievable but most of the book was an enjoyable story of young love and the struggles of Jess and Janine. The ending sets the scene for a sequel but I'm not sure if there is one in the works. Hopefully the author will take some time to give us more time with Jess and John, rather than focus so completely on Janine. ( )

Brothers & Best Friends follows the story of Janine, an 18 year old who is raped by a stranger at a party. When she finds out she is pregnant by the encounter, she confides in her brother's best friend, Jess, a man she hasn't seen in 3 years. Jess takes her in, decides to be the father of her unborn baby, and the story just goes on and on from there -- a little too long, in my opinion.

There are several different plot points that seem very unbelievable as well as others that are too predictable. Who goes to a man they haven't seen in 3 years when they find out they are pregnant?! Most 18 year olds would have at least one close friend they could confide in with that information -- at least someone that they are around regularly. Also, what's the likelihood that a young adult male would immediately find his best friend's pregnant sister attractive and immediately want to fill the role of the baby's father?

The story also lacks emotion, especially on the behalf of the main character. She seems rather okay with being raped, with telling Jess her secrets and later the truth about Will, and about having the ability to sleep beside the man she has supposedly had a HUGE crush on since she was little. She willingly goes home the moment her mom demands that she return, though she's 18 and about to have a child -- a bit immature there.

The storyline itself is okay, and there was a time or two that I was surprised, but it could definitely use a lot of work. ( )
