Book Review: Love Garage by Liz Crowe

Love Garage

I received a free copy of this book for my unbiased opinion. 

I did not like this book and I would not recommend it. I felt that the characters were very immature. No one talked to each other. The brothers resolved things by beating each other up and the couples just had sex. Even at the end of the book when they were supposed to have a conversation with the matriarch of the family, they still didn’t say anything. Considering none of the couples had a conversation, the “happily-ever-after” end seemed very far-fetched to me.

I also didn’t like that there were random sex scenes just thrown into the book, including a three-some that had nothing to do with the plot. This scene to me just highlighted how immature Aiden was.

I loved the little boy, Jeffrey. He brought character and humor to the book. Unfortunately, those were missing from the other characters.

I did like the way the author made sure that you knew what month it was and showed the passage of time. I also liked how she wrote about the complex relationships between the brothers and highlighted how different they were from each other.

I would have liked this book if it was just about one brother and his story and not about the whole family. It felt like the author was forcing the story to go one way when it really wanted to go another because there were too many players involved. If she had focused on Antony and his healing so he wasn’t so grumpy and could accept love, instead of bringing in Aiden and the love triangle plots, it would have been better. Honestly, because of Antony and Rosalee’s actions, I seriously disliked both of them and didn’t want them to have happy endings. I felt they were both selfish and didn’t care who they hurt in the process.

The author's writing style and prose is nice. She uses descriptions well so you can see the scene. Unfortunately, the character development was lacking in this book.
