It was supposed to be an innocent night, celebrating my brother’s birthday. Nothing was supposed to go wrong. We’d vowed to be on our best behavior after all . . .
But it only took one rowdy night with my brothers to flip my world upside down. One unlucky encounter saddled us with a family curse and the promise of doomed relationships. I laughed it off immediately. “Yeah, right,” I thought. “A love curse. Ha!”
Boy, was I wrong.
Word spreads quickly in a town like mine; rumors about that night soon made us the most eligible yet untouchable bachelors in Port Snow, Maine. As a subject of endless gossip and speculation, I could kiss my dating life goodbye.
It would have stayed that way if Ren Winters, the new girl in town, hadn’t crashed into my life. Brave, beautiful, and smart—her vivacious thirst for a fresh start has given me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can have one too.
Everyone wishes for that second chance . . . but could this really be mine?

I haven't read much of Quinn's newer books lately. So, when the opportunity to read this one, I jumped on it. I am a sucker for small town stories.
I jumped right into this book, hooked from the start. The book starts with a drunken night that left me chuckling. It leads into some fun and some heartbreaking moments. All of the inbetween kept me turning the pages.
I enjoyed all of the characters in this book. Ren and Griffin's story has a little bit of everything in it. There are some funny times, some sweet times, some sexy times, some heartbreaking times... My drawback with the characters is Ren. I felt for a character her age, her over-reactions were a bit much, immature. I wasn't feeling some of her responses to certain situations.
While I was excited for that ah-ha moment for Griffin in this book, it didn't leave me with what I had hoped for. It felt a bit cheesey, rushed, and forced. It was like, "oh, duh, why didn't I think of that" and everything was all of a sudden right with the world. I needed it to be a bit more of a complex discovery at that moment.
Overall, I enjoyed this book. I am most certainly looking forward to the upcoming books in this series. I can't wait to see what is in store for the other brothers.
