 Review by Janeane - ARC Received for honest review

Jess is the genius, wunderkind of computer programming company Alpha 5.  Finishing college at an age where others are just starting, she has always been a bit of an outcast, so much younger than her classmates.

She is in a routine, a life of sorts I guess you'd say.

A phone call out of the blue, she finds out an aunt she had forgotten about has passed away and left everything to her.  She is now a very rich young woman.

Headed to small town Hera, she realises what a world of difference there is from big city NY to country NY.  Gone is any anonimity she had.  Now everyone knows who she is and what she does.  They are also all in her business.  This would drive me insane.  Seriously people ~ some boundaries please!

I did the tree change from the city to small country town a few years back now, and yes, it is just like that.  But this town is overstepping the lines in a way that would make me consider mass murder!

Meet Dylan and Carson.  Brothers, both sexy and smart, and attracted to Jess.  They also have a past with Jess which dredges up memories for Jess.

Enter love triangle here.  I did enjoy the differences in the relationships between Jess and Dylan and Jess and Carson.  Though her insecurities did start to make me want to shake her and tell her to wake the heck up.  I guess the saying "book smarts not street smarts" comes to play here.

What I also did enjoy is there was no cheating (well, emotionally mixed up but no cheating-cheating).  And a nice change was that she did not go from one guy's bed to the other in a heartbeat.

There was a great cast of secondary characters.  Her aunt's two best friends, the two girls she meets on her first day in town who become firm friends.  The old attorney.

At times I both loved and hated the 3 main characters.  They were all so pigheaded at times, Aaaargh!  I wanted to slam all their heads together and tell them to snap out of it.

I could pretty much figure out where the story would end up, but it was a ride worth taking to get there
