Photographer Melodie Carr moved to New York City to escape and make a fresh start. Her soldier fiancé was killed in a friendly-fire incident in Iraq, and she has been struggling to come to terms with it ever since. She still feels strongly about needless death and those left behind, so when she sees a call for photographs for a calendar of topless men, with profits going to the Hero Family Fund, she’s eager to help out. Unfortunately, she doesn’t know any men that fit the profile, so she gives up on the idea. That is, until Patrick Brogan—her late fiance’s brother—turns up in New York. Seeing him brings up all kinds of memories, but she’s determined to push them aside and be friends with Patrick. She also realizes he’d be perfect for the calendar. But can she persuade him to take part?

Great chemistry runs in the blood!

Melodie Carr is in New York, and life is tough; she’s lost the love of her life, Sean, in Iraq. She’s struggling to get back on track and move on but is determined to try because she knows that’s what Sean would have wanted, and something she promised.

So when she sees a call for photographs of sexy men to make a calendar to benefit fallen heroes she wonders if she could help out, she’s pretty good at taking photographs. If only she had a hunky man to take his shirt off and smile for the camera…

Enter the other brother, Patrick. Working as a zoo vet he’s right there, not completely willing but certainly up for it after a bit of persuasion, and then…then you’ll have to read the book to find out what happens.

I really enjoyed The Other Brother. It was a difficult subject to tackle yet Ms Felthouse does it with grace and consideration. It’s always hard to mix death and erotic romance, probably one of the hardest things to do, but The Other Brother does it seamlessly and by the end I was completely vested in the characters and them finding their HEA

Oh, and the sexy, sexy bits – yep, they’re there and they’re hot. A perfect little read for those that like a nicely rounded romance that’s a little bit different.
