4 Brotherly Love Stars
This novella was mainly told in Blane's POV with alternating chapters on the events of No Turning Back and Blane and Kade getting to know each other 17 years earlier. While I enjoyed getting a peek into Blane's thoughts and motives from the first book, I'm not a huge fan of rehashing the same shit with a differing POV. But what I LOVED were the chapters of Blane and Kade. Ms. Snow also gave us a few snippets of Kade's POV during these moments as the brothers get to know each other, trust each other and ultimately love each other.
"You're my brother. We stick together. No matter what."
It was heartwarming and heartbreaking to see these two, one a 10 year old and the other just an adult at 18, forge a relationship mired in guilt, regrets, distrust, pain and anger. The bond Blane and Kade have is truly special and it has me all that more intrigued as to how this series will unfold because I don't want anything to sever that bond, not even Kathleen.
