While Butch is not my favorite Brother, he's definitely on my top 5 list. I loved rereading his story again. It was agonizing to go through his and Marissa's problems again, even knowing it was going to have a HEA.
V just breaks my heart though. The first book in the series I read was V's book. I don't usually read out of order but the library had V's book listed as the first in the series and after reading it, I was completely in love with him. The UST between him and Butch still kills me. And the whole scene in his Penthouse when he's drunk and despondent... never fails to affect me.
And poor John, he's so confused and hurt and angry all the time. It was good to see him start to open up again. His walks with Zsadist will help him, later, and I was still happy to see Lash get his butt kicked again.
I especially love the line about the night of firsts. Sex. Arson. Pants.
Back to the main storyline, the only nitpicky little thing I dislike is that it took so long
for them to hammer out their issues. Especially since they have been dancing around each other for a couple of books now. It seemed like Z had an easier time coming around with all his problems and heaven knows that Brother has more baggage than Samsonite.
Regardless, I'm still in love with the series although I still have a hard time not skipping all the scenes with the lessors
like I always do when I first read them.
