Review: Family Values - Delilah Devlin

When coming between three brothers, it’s best to just let go.
Lone Star Lovers, Book 8
Angelina Flores lived a perfect ranch-kid childhood, complete with three princes on horseback who treated their housekeeper’s daughter like a princess. At age eighteen, the fairytale came crashing down when she realized she had to choose between Brand, Nate and Eli McAffee.
And when she did choose one—she lost all three.
She’s older now. Wiser, thanks to her college education and a few years’ distance. A distance she’d planned to maintain…until her mother begs her to fill in at the ranch while she takes care of a sick relative.
The minute her boots hit the front porch, the memories come flooding back, right along with the hunger. It’s tough to put the past behind her when temptation is so close. Especially since the brothers seem bound and determined to woo her. Separately. Together. Whatever it takes to keep her right where she belongs—in their arms.
Warning: Three cowboys all aiming for the same goal, and one woman with the cajones to give it to them—or wipe the floor with their butts, if necessary.

Short but incredibly steamy, Devlin gave us a surprisingly sexy story considering it's short length. It's a relatively classic plot, but what Devlin did with it took it to a whole new level.

Three brothers, all in love with the same girl. And the girl? Well, she claims she loves them all equally. However, I have my doubts. Her love for each of the men is as different as the men themselves. Wild and carefree, kind and loving, and heart pounding are just some ways to describe how she cares for each of them. Although we are to believe that Angelina loves the McAffee brothers equally, her every action leads us to believe her feelings for Brand are stronger. And years later, when she returns to the ranch, it is Brand who's approval and feelings she's most concerned with.

Even though Family Values is a short novella, it is surprisingly full of story, plot and definitely full of complex feelings. Devlin hit it out of the park with this one. It was a great story and I just did not want it to end.
