    1. This is one of Jessica Steele's better books. It was so filled with WTF angst, I thought I was reading a Charlotte Lamb. Kathryn is engaged to be married to Rex (first brother) when she happens to walk in and find him in bed with his secretary. She is devastated, breaks the engagement and runs off to be with her sister for the weekend. Rex on the other hand, recognizing the error of his ways, gets drunk and crashes the car seriously injuring himself.In comes brother number 2, "The Other Brother" [...]

    2. *Spoilers, yes*Formulaic JS with a cheating fiancé, an angry vengeful H and a poor misunderstood h, bravely trying to get on with life. Only I dint like her completely forgetting/not going to see the seriously injured om. He might have been a jerk but a JS h is supposed to be a better person! Also, her complete idiocy in keeping the truth to herself and suffering the om’s family’s wrath was baffling and impractical. Adding more to her idiocy was her turning a blind eye to the H’s real mot [...]

    3.

    4. Good old school revenge HP. What I liked most about it was that the reveal of the H's revenge plot and h's innocence came more toward the middle than in the last 2 pages. So, the H had to work hard for a few chapters to get the h to forgive him and take him back. And, she held on to her pride like a vice instead of falling right back into his arms.

    5. Kathryn is getting ready to marry Rex. She’ll be moving into a much higher socio-economic bracket, but she’s determined not to be a moocher, so she’s paying for and organising a whole lot of wedding things. Her sweet old boss, Mr Kingersby, gives her the afternoon off to do wedding stuff. Rex is also a Kingersby. There are seven Kingersby men owning and running the company where Kathryn works. I don’t know what the business does, but it’s been doing it for a jubilee-worthy number of ye [...]

    6. Just read again because I was thinking of the jilting trope. The "other brother" in this one did redeem himself by placing himself in a position of humiliation if the heroine rejected him. That was nicely done as a symbolic weighing of the karmic scales. But it seemed too quick of a turnaround from a very upset heroine. I'm not sure if trust is regained that quickly. The sister's philandering husband sub-thread really underscored the notion of trust in a relationship. It was more ominous than re [...]

    7. I love how Jessica Steele creates conflict in her heroes, who end up loving the very one they despise and distrust. And threaten and bully. They realize they misjudged the girl. Then they must grovel -- and in this case, the "other brother" has to really grovel!! Her heroes can be so ruthless.

    9. I didn't enjoy this book much to be honest I found the heroine naive and I never felt the hero grovelled sufficiently instead he felt she had a right to listen to his explanations even when all along he pretended to be nice to her, sometimes attacked her and then planned to jilt her at the altar not to forget took her virginity, not doing.The only reason he realized that his beloved brother was lying was because she turned out to be a virgin. Not that the heroine was blameless, when she discover [...]

    10. Story goes she is engaged to the Hero's brother and she breaks it off with him after he is caught with his pants down and then he has an accident. The hero want to go down and make up with him and she is not going to do that so he set out to get even with her. He seduces her coldly her first time and he is tell her what he really thinks of her and she keeps going in to work for that asshole after he tell her off and she tell him the truth. He is a total judgmental asshole!!! If it was him would [...]

    11. Nice tidy revenge story. "Tidy" in the sense that the hero's remorse and groveling is nicely calibrated to make up for his revenges against the heroine.

    12. "The Other Brother" is the story of Nate and Kathryn.Basically Kathryn is a happy bride to be, marrying Rex into the Kingersby family, when a pre wedding apartment trip leads her to Rex with another woman in bed. Angry and hurt, she breaks off the engagement, and goes off to visit her sister.When she returns, she realizes Rex has had an accident- and his family thinks she jilted him- not knowing the real reason behind calling off the wedding!Nate his older brother now heads the company she is se [...]

    13. Kathryn is planning her wedding to Rex Kingersby. She is planning on moving into his place when she comes across a woman’s worst nightmare - Rex in bed w/ OW. Kathryn calmly returns his ring and questions what her feelings for him truly were. She goes to seek solace from family and returns later to find Rex’s brother, Nate, at her door. Nate is accusing her of all sorts of heartlessness and even endeavoring to inflict some violence on her. Kathryn must finish up her work with the Kingersby f [...]

    14. Some good angst in this one. The heroine was definitely a total idiot for not guessing at the hero's motives based on the evil looks he shot her all the time. Of course, to be fair, the heroine could hardly know that she was living in HP-land, where heroes concoct elaborate revenges at the drop of a hat. A nice long grovel-fest at the end, which was fun. Overall, very readable if you like angsty revenge stories.

    15. I enjoyed this book. A lot of the plot was obvious as it was developing but I found it interesting. I thought the heroine was totally an airhead at times, falling so quick after her recent experience. Not to mention all the fleeting looks of hatred which were ignored by her. I can't help thinking she was on the rebound.

    16. Most of the book was like watching a horror movie where the dumb heroine decides she wants to investigate the strange noise in the dark basement and you know she shouldn't go there but she does anyway. Not that this book was horror but I didn't understand the heroine at all. An okay story, but nothing remarkable.

    17. I honestly don't even want to waste my time writing this review so I'll try to keep it short. Kathryn is incredibly naive but because her character is written so well I am understand why she is the way she is. It's just in her nature and she got burned for it. Nate is one of the most despicable men I've ever seen in a book and there was no redeeming him after the way he treated her. The whole book he was a jerk playing her though she didn't know it. You figure she'd catch on with the subtle glar [...]

    18. Another reread from last night.Heroine walks in on her fiance in bed with his secretary, one week before they were supposed to get married. She broke things off. Not long after that, her ex was involved in an accident and while the heroine asked about him, she didn't go to see him. His older brother came looking for her. Didn't know the full story and blamed her & vowed revenge. His plan was to make her fall in love with him and then do to her what she did to his brother.n, he didn't know th [...]

    19. Now I am die hard Jessica Steele fan because I love reading about her urbane, bossy British alpha males in conservative Savile Row suits, but I gotta say that the cover of this novel is ugly !🤣☹😐 . That hero on the cover sucks ! Wtf was wrong with the graphic department at Mills and Boon during this era? Did none of their ''artistic employees'' attend art school or have meaningful conversations with the marketing and advertising departments? Seriously if I did not love Jessica's old fash [...]

    20. 2010 Review: love it because SPOILERS: the heroine made the hero suffer because he did a dastardly thing! But don't worry, she made him suffer just enough for love to still prevail in the end. Well the back cover kind of tells you the whole story already. I already knew that the hero was going to be cruel to her so I didn't hate him too much. I liked the story because it was not boring and the story just flowed. Even though the heroine was a virgin and later was callously used and "devirginized" [...]

    21. bu kitap hakkında duygularımı şöyle ifade edebilirim herhalde Kadın karakter düğüne 1 hafta kala nişanlısını sekreteriyle yatakta basınca[image error]Sonra nişanlısı Rex'in kaza geçirip de kızımız Kathrine ulaşılamayınca sinirli abinin gelip de kıza ağzına geleni söyleyinceKathrinin o abiye aldatılğını ve canınız cehenneme demesi yerine nişanlısının aile bireyleri karşısında şerefinin iki paralık olacağını düşündüğü için hiç bir söylemediği [...]

    22. reading the synopsis i thought it looked like an interesting plot but while reading i felt it quite lacked in terms of the heroines love she suddenly felt for the hero, after the heros blatant hatred for her, and the abusive way he treated her the first time they met (nearly strangling her out of anger). i somehow felt that the heroine had to admit to herself that she loved the hero so quickly in order for her to give her body so freely to him. in all honesty i didnt like either character. i tho [...]

    23. A book from 1982.Kathryn is so naive but would never explain herself fully. Nate was so hateful and made so many assumptions about the woman who jilted his brother and may have caused him to have a car accident.I really can't see how a person could fall in love with someone when the initially showed themselves to be so hateful and wanting revenge. She even stated that she would occasionally catch him looking at her with so much anger, yet he was being nice to her. He was hot then cold with her, [...]

    24. So dated it's almost quaint. Hero goes beyond dominant into Ahole territory but is (of course) redeemed in the end. Several times I wanted to Bslap the heroine because seriously are you kidding me???????? But all in all a journey into our( less enlightened) past.

    25. I didn't enjoy this novel too much. I found it to be really silly at most parts and Nate to be absolutely rude, arrogant and revengeful. It hurt that the heroine could be hurt so much and then just blindly accepting his proposal the next. She is no better than her sister in my books.

    26. Found the h really fickle for falling in and out of love soo quickly. Did not feel the H's love. There should have been more time span between the broken engagement and the next relation.

    27. İntikam alacağım diye kıza aşık oldun ya Nate :D HAHA!! Çok acayipsin! :D Surpriz Nikah hazırlaması,balayı hazırlaması çok hoştu,çok romantikti daha çok. :D
