No Turning Back

No Turning Back (Hanover Brothers Book #1) is the newest release from author HelenKay Dimon. The publisher is Penguin Group (Berkley InterMix) and the official release date was March 19, 2013. From the back cover.~

The Hanover brothers inherited some bad behavior from their con artist father. Now three strong women will make honest men out of them. 

After ten years in the Army and four overseas deployments, Declan Hanover is ready for life away from a military base. Sweetwater, Oregon, a sleepy coastal town, seems like the perfect place to start over. His plan is to work out a deal with his brothers and the bank to let him keep the estate they’ve inherited, Shadow Hill. But he wasn’t prepared for Leah Baron, whose family lost everything to his father’s cons—including the house Declan intends to make his own… 

Leah thinks Declan is just like his conman father. He possesses a bad boy charm that makes her heart pound, but that doesn’t mean she can trust him. All she wants is to get close to him so she can get her house back. But Declan has other ideas. He doesn’t mind being in close proximity to Leah—as long as it’s in the bedroom…  

I was lucky enough to get a review copy thanks to the publisher through NetGalley. I’m a huge fan of HelenKay Dimon and couldn’t wait to read the first book in her new series. I think No Turning Back was a great start for this series.

Those Hanover brothers pretty much stole my heart from the minute each appeared on the page. Declan and Leah meet for the first time when Leah is trash talking about all the Hanovers while having breakfast with her best friend Mallory. I absolutely loved that he confronted her about it and could see they were immediately attracted to one another. Leah’s dad has drilled into her head since she was a little girl that Charlie Hanover, and anyone with the Hanover name was an enemy.

I loved the chemistry between Declan and Leah. Even with the history between their families between them, they can’t seem to keep their hands off one another. HelenKay Dimon has always given her readers sexy books, and she delivered once again with No Turning Back. Of course, because of their family’s history, there are many bumps along the way and only by trusting one another can they make their relationship work.

I also loved the relationship between the Hanover brothers. Callen, Declan and Beck had a rough past, but once they come together, they are a solid unit. I really fell pretty hard for all the Hanover brothers, but fell hardest for Callen.

No Turning Back is a sexy contemporary romance with just enough mystery about the past to keep the reader guessing. Up next in the series is Beck’s book, A Simple Twist of Fate, which is scheduled for release on July 16, 2013.
