Heartache and betrayal are two things Keeley Stone is very familiar with. Born into a life she never wanted, betrayed by her own parents, she never saw a way out. Until one day, two men who know nothing of her or her life step up and protect her when she’s in need of a savior.
Loyalty and respect are not just something earned for brothers Nathaniel and Tyler Maxwell, but a code they live by. A chance encounter with a gorgeous young woman has left them enthralled with her.
Can they convince her they’re worth fighting for? Or will she let demons of her past control her future?

I really enjoyed this read.
It was my first MFM book and it was good. I'm definitely going to read the other two books in the series.
I just want to hug Keeley!! Poor gal. I was so happy when Nate and Ty finally found her :)
Content warning: Abuse, rape
This book has an interesting premise, but the heroine has no personality and absolutely no real choices.
Keeley has spent 20 years in an abusive home, has a 9th grade education, and works for a pair of abusive bosses. When the brothers show up, they immediately “claim” her without her consent or interest, and the next day when she is kicked out by her parent, they meet her, offer her a job and a place at their home, and take her to their shared bedroom while she’s asleep. Whether they ask her permission after that isn’t relevant. They are abusing and manipulating Keeley, just in a different way that she had before. Marine brothers ought to know better than to expect someone with severe intimacy issues and PTSD to instantly become an intimate partner.
It’s all unrealistic and puts WAY too much pressure on someone who’s been violently abused for decades to reciprocate with intimacy. It’s not romance if she can’t say no. It’s rape.
I’ll admit that I couldn’t finish the book, a rarity for me since I read over 50 a month. Maybe it gets better after that. I doubt it, though.
Awful, stupid and repetitive
See above and add horribly written to the list. Super bad and not like the movie.
