The best day of his life, the worst day of hers. 

Back in college, Marco Dawson never thought of Belle as anything more than a friend. If she had crossed his mind on his wedding day, it was probably only to wonder why she hadn’t shown up to be a bridesmaid. After all, his new wife was her old roommate. Seven years have passed since then, and Belle just found out that Marco is divorced and vacationing with his family in an elegant Cancun resort. She’s not about to let the right man get away twice. She heads to the resort where she plans to casually bump into Marco and ignite some romantic flames. 

But Belle hadn’t planned on one thing: Flynn Dawson, Marco’s handsome, charming, and determined twin brother. He thinks Marco and his ex-wife can make amends and he’s not about to let Belle stand in the way. 

Part Sabrina, part While You Were Sleeping, romantic comedy readers will eat this book up!

My Review

HOW I MET YOUR BROTHER was a humorous, romantic, emotional roller-coaster read. Strong characters under a rather awkward circumstance with hearts on the line made for some serious entertainment. If you enjoy romantic comedies with some unique twists and adorable endings, then definitely grab this one!

I really loved Belle and Flynn! They have their own agendas and start of with some serious misconceptions of each other, which just adds to the tension. Marco and his ex are so totally clueless and seem to bring the drama. Add in a beautiful location and a family reunion and the plot just thickens. There were some parts that were a little implausible, but nothing overly problematic. The entertainment just kept coming as well as the banter (how I love banter!), so it was easy to just sit back and enjoy this one. Plus, the ending was pretty fabulous.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This has some swoon-worthy moments, as well as some heartfelt and sweet ones. An overall enjoyable, fun read!

About the Author

Janette Rallison/CJ Hill writes books because writing is much more fun than cleaning bathrooms. Her avoidance of housework has led her to writing 26 novels that have sold over 1,000,000 print copies and have been on many reading and state lists. Her books are fantasy, sci-fi, and romantic comedy because hey, there is enough angst in real life, but there’s a drastic shortage of humor, romance and hot guys who fight dragons. She lives in Arizona with her husband, kids, and enough cats to classify her as eccentric.
