Summary

The last thing any man wants to see is the woman of his dreams getting engaged to his brother....

I thought I still had time to win Marlena back, but seeing the brother I despise lock his arm around her waist at his engagement party catches me completely off guard.

I can’t really blame her. She didn’t know he was my brother and I’m sure he never talks about me, but now that she knows, she’s begging me to forget about our past. Well, she’s out of her mind if she thinks I’m going to let her get away from me that easily.

Most men are willing to sacrifice a greater love for the sake of another’s happiness, but the thing is, I’m not like most men. And that fiance of his? She knows me better than anyone else, which means she also knows I’m not letting her go without a fight.

Love will conquer all

This story will have you glued till the end it is a bit slow at the beginning . It’s a slow burn love story . The author wrote about 2 souls that loved each other but somehow was kept apart . Both the Hero and Heroine had l
problems that they had to face at the beginning of the story .
Hero is Vinny . Heroine is Marley. They both came from 2 different worlds. Vinny came from money and wealth but something went wrong. He turns to alcohol and drugs . And he gives up on Marley at the time . Marley gave from the wrong side of the tracks , had a hard life . Vinny gets cleaned up and he wants Marley back .
Marley gets engaged to Vinny brother Lloyd but Vinny wants her back .
Both performance by Gregory and Lacy were great . Gregory deep husky voice for Vinny was great. His performance for Lloyd who was a bad apple was great also . Lacy performance for Marley was strong

Thank you Audio book obsession for a great listen

A sad gripping story of lost love that is later reconciled, but not before one of the characters realize they are making a big mistake by marrying the wrong brother.
Lacy & Gregory did a wonderful job narrating this story.

What a Ride!

This second chance romance that had so many twist and turns it made you dizzy. This is a great love story and of great triumphs. How we over come addictions and how to find ourselves. I love Lacy Laurel and Gregory Salinas in this story. This was a reunion of lover by chance. I loved every bit of this story and enjoyed the twist and turns, a must read.

I can't stop thinking about Vinny!!

a roller coaster of emotions, twists, and turns that you won't see them coming,
the story of Marlene and Vinny. I really enjoy my Fiance's brother as I really didn't expect so many things that happened that made the story even more intriguing and more enjoyable. the love between Marlene and Vinny was very intense no matter how much they tried to hide it and even trying to forget and start a new life but life kept bringing them together and making it impossible to forget about their past. I really didn't expect the evilness of some of the characters. I really didn't see that coming but it made perfect sense why Vinny was the way he was and why he separated himself from the people he loved. it brought me to tears and also made me smile once we finally understood the story of the main characters..

Shanora has a way with her words and stories making you want to keep reading and my fiance's brother was not the exception it had all the perfect ingredients to make this story great. angst, love, intriguing moments and two amazing characters that will keep you wanting to know more and more about them..

The narrations by Lacy Laurel and Gregory Salinas really brought to life these amazing characters, their feelings, and emotions making the story even more enjoyable and more intriguing.. I really felt every situation the main characters were going through because of the great work Lacy and Gregory did.. really enjoy their work so much.

great book, great characters, and great story!!

Second chances aren't always easy

Marley and Vin were happy together but both had difficult pasts which lead to addiction, drug abuse and self-destruction. They lost contact for years before unexpectedly crossing paths again. Both have changed for the good but have moved on yet still have this connection they can't let go. It is an emotional story of second chances that is well worth a listen. Lacy Laurel and Gregory Salinas both did a great job bringing the voice and emotions of the characters to life.

Great but......

I liked this story very much but the ending was to abrupt and I felt like revenge was not served for some people and the truth wasn’t revealed to other.
Otherwise I really enjoyed it.
No unnecessary descriptions of surroundings
Good storyline that progresses nicely to a happy ending
Hot and emotional love scenes
Main characters was well described and developed in to realistic personalities but the secondary characters wasn’t easy to read

Narrators:
Clear pronunciation and read with feelings

lost for words

oh Shanora Williams certainly knows how to rip out your heart stomp on it and put it all back together again healed , I was not expecting what happened in this book to happen at all , but whilst it was heartbreaking it made the story all that more special and heart felt, I am at a loss for words really on how to write this review
just know you NEED to read or listen to this book !
I would totally recommend listening however, as the narrators really brought this book to life and made it all the more special !

Sweet story - Past and present

A really great second chance story, where the guy sees his past mistakes, which for me is really refreshing.

I really enjoyed that the story focused on both characters and the choices (and mistakes) they made or makes throughout.
It was a cozy listen, with great narration!

Great listen

I really enjoyed this book because I loved the twist and turns you don't see coming. This story sucks you in right from the beginning and never let's you go till the end. This story does really touch on some emotional issues that I think alot of people can relate too. Drug abuse and blended family issues really affect the lives in this story. The narrators did a great job with these characters and making it an even more enjoyable story.

Fantastic listen!

This is my first book by Shanora Williams, and she now has a new fan! What a beautiful story! When I read the title, I figured this was going to be a naughty, the heroine is attracted to her future brother-in-law type of naughty, but to my surprise, it is a heart wrenching story of longing, loving and redemption. Marley and Vin dated for 3 years. When it was evident Vin's addictions would rule his life, Marley left him and set out to move on with her life. But can that ever really happen? These two soulmates meet again and in the worst of circumstances. I loved Vin! His brokenness made so endearing, and his perseverance was unwavering. Marley is strong and wants to do what is best for her family. I have to say, there were times I wanted to smack her silly and tell her what to do, but I do love the way things shift and move in the story. It makes for an angsty, highly emotional book, making my heart ache and fill with love.

Lacy Laurel and Gregory Salinas give an amazing performance. Marley is full of emotion and the push/pull feelings are felt straight through with Laurel's performance. You can just feel her passion towards Vin while being pulled to keep her commitment. Salinas has a smooth voice and I loved his portrayal of Vin. Vin is full of passion and perseverance, felt with his inflections. Together, they gave us a story of love not to be missed.

second chance romance

so much drama in this one. All the characters in here are a hot mess and hot mess characters sometimes make for a good story. I was pretty much engaged the whole time. I didnt feel much of a connection with any of the characters though because they were a bit all of the place. I'm just not a huge fan of cheating even when characters feel like its justified. If you want to be with someone else, then just be with someone else.I also get annoyed when characters continue to make the same bad decisions and choose a path they no longer have to choose. The story was good and engaging and well written and told, it just wasn't my typed of story. Marlena is marrying lloyd and right before the wedding finds out lloyd is the brother of the first and only man she ever really loved and once reunited, they have a hard time staying away from eachother. Ven wants marlena back and always has even before knowing she was engaged to his brother but marlena keeps choosing to go back to lloyd because she feels she has no other choice and must stick with the original plans to make sure her mom keeps getting the care she needs. Can ven convince marlena to finally leaves his jerk brother and be with him again? I guess you'll just have to read and find out. If you don't like stories involving cheating than this isn't the book for you. I feel like I would have liked it better if there wasn't so much cheating happening.I mean that's your brother man, even if he is a jerk and you feel like the girl was yours first. I really was enjoying it until that started happening. I mean hey some people dont mind it. It is fiction but still makes me cringe lol. Also I felt bad for ven because he loved her so much and she couldn't make up her mind what she wanted.

Forbidden second chance hotness

Shanora Williams just gets that forbidden sexual tension right. It’s so palpable it’s comes right through the speaker. There are some darker aspects to MarLena and Vinny’s relationship. It’s an emotional story but they both came out stronger on the other side. This is one satisfying listen,

Lacy and Gregory are fire.

5 massive stars

Wow I absolutely LOVED this book so much! Shanora Williams is an amazing author. I could not stop listening ALL day. I have a major crush on Vinny. I think my husband should be worried. He was mouthwatering. And dont get me started on Marley. She was perfection. Normally when I read romance books its hard to remember the female names afterwards. I guess because the men are just so much more memorable but Marley will stick with me. OHHH and the hatred I feel for Lloyd and Will is INTENSE. SUPER HUGE 5 STARS.

please take the mic from Lacy Laurel!

I'm astounded that Lacy Laurel is an actual narrator. Her narrations ruin every book I've bought that she worked on. The only great thing about this one is that it was dual and I at least didn't have to listen to her throughout 100% of this book. Her male voices are laughable. It sounds like the exaggerated voice you make when you're trying to be intentionally facetious and mean. Bad narration ruined this book, which to be honest, wasn't that great even without narration.

Chasing happiness

The story begins with Marlena leaving her addict boyfriend Vinnie. She’s realized that he’s never going to get the help he needs so she’s accepted a job as a flight attendant. Fast forward two years, Vinnie is now clean and opening a club with one of his friends. He receives a call from his younger brother Lloyd asking him to be the best man at his wedding which Vinnie finds hilarious because they aren’t close, in fact they can’t stand each other. Lloyd even offers to pay Vinnie $20,000 to attend and he says he is doing this to make their mom happy. Vinnie agreed because $20,000 is, well, $20,000. Vinnie goes to the dinner to meet Lloyd’s fiancée and he’s shocked to see that it is none other than Marlena, the only woman he’s ever loved. Marlena is just as shocked to see Vinnie but neither mention knowing the other. This revelation makes a tense situation even more tense. In the months following the dinner, Marlena starts to see a side of Lloyd that she’s never seen before and seeing Vinnie makes her have doubts about her future. Does she do what’s right or does she choose her happiness?
I enjoyed this book. It was well written but I gave it 3 stars because the story started slowly but it did build along the way. But overall a good story. Good narration from both narrators.

Great Read

My Fiance’s Brother: A Forbidden Second Chance Romance was a great read by Shanora Williams. Vinny and Marlena were once in love and in a relationship. Now Marlena is unknowingly engaged to his brother that Vinny hates. I absolutely loved reading Vinny and Marlena’s story and the whole time wanted them to get back together. Lacy Laurel and Gregory Salinas did a great job of narrating the characters and bringing life to them. I can’t wait to read more by Shanora Williams. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer
