Finn Anderson is a loyal military veteran who has no desire to live a life of luxury and ease, but sometimes a person doesn’t get a choice. His life is flipped upside down when he and his four brothers learn they’re long-lost relatives of the absurdly famous and wealthy Joseph Anderson. The eccentric but generous billionaire puts the brothers to work building a new veterans center, and that’s not all: Joseph won’t stop until each nephew finds love.
Finn has never expected or wanted an easy life, and he struggles with his early retirement from the elite SEAL team. But when a very confident Brooke Garrison literally sweeps him off his feet during a self-defense class he’s teaching, he thinks less about his past and more about a brand-new future.
If Finn knows anything for certain, it’s that he can’t let this woman get away. Though Brooke is tough and compassionate, the loss of her brother has left her vulnerable. She isn’t sure she can risk loving and losing another person in her life, including a very determined ex-SEAL. Can the two of them look beyond their past wounds and embrace what they’re feeling?

My Rating: 4.5 stars
I adore the Anderson family and all of the branches we’ve discovered so far… I say “so far” because Joseph Anderson always seems to keep finding more relatives to love and perhaps meddle in their non-existent love lives. Now we’re beginning the Anderson Billionaires series with FINN and I can tell you right now I’m hooked in this series for the long-haul.
Finn isn’t completely trusting of his new “uncle” Joseph, he’s learned the hard way at his no-good father’s knee that everyone has an angle you just have to figure it out. But so far Joseph is acting like any normal billionaire with a loving extended family and seems quite willing to bring Finn and his brothers into the fold by offering them jobs on the creation of the new veterans center project. While Finn might be slow to fall for Joseph and the family, that’s not the case when he first meets Brooke as she unexpectedly takes him down during a self-defense class. Instant attraction, yes, but it went deeper than that for Finn. Now he has to gently break through Brooke’s very sturdy walls around her heart to let her see that she can trust, even love a man who would no sooner hurt her than hurt himself.
I fell in love with Finn within the first chapter and Brooke not long after. She’s guarding her heart so tightly that when a man who can love her just as much if not more than she ever thought possible comes along she’s afraid to let him in. She has her reasons, she’s grieving the loss of her brother, the only steady love she’s known. Watching their non-dates, seeing Finn turn on the charm and Brooke slowly let him in was an emotional, enjoyable journey. I loved being back in this world and cannot wait for NOAH to release. I’m hooked on an Anderson series once again and would not hesitate to recommend this or any of the Anderson series to any Romance reader who loves a happy ever after ending that is hard-fought for but so worth it in the end… and one adorable, meddling older gentleman.
