I received this ARC from Net Galley and the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.
3.75 * rounded to 4
This book started off slow for me but did quickly pick up. There was just too much going on in the first couple of chapters that made the book feel frantic. Honestly, I was not sure what to expect and how the story would turn. Charleston is one of my favorite cities to visit, which was the primary reason why I chose to read this book. I did enjoy the scenes where Charleston and some of the cities establishments were mentioned. I also liked both the H/HE but did not care for the brothers. Both appeared to be extremely cocky, full of themselves, and displayed a demonstration of how old money reacts to others. Apparently, there are three novellas prior to this book, but I was not aware until after I completed this one. I was able to follow the story and characters without reading the prior books.
The storyline definitely had promise with Keaton and Tilly. I enjoyed both characters and was rooting for them. However, the story felt a little off with these two. After being separated for eight years as children without even speaking to each other, they professed their undying love upon Keaton running into Tilly at a gentlemen’s club where she was working as a waitress.
I will continue with this series since this one did end in a cliffhanger, which I absolutely despise in a book. The twist did work for this one!
In this first novel in the explosive, brand-new romantic suspense Sons of Broad series from Tara Thomas comes a novel of deadly secrets and hidden danger. In the sultry streets of Charleston, one family, ruled by its powerful, take-no-prisoners sons, has risen to the top. But a merciless killer is out to destroy them…and everyone they hold close…
