JB SALSBURY ➠ True North

(The North Brothers #3)


The North name is a heavy burden. Two things I learned young—the best way to keep my head on is to keep my head down, and… never fall in love.
But I’m a sucker for a damsel in distress.
Lillian came into my life swinging. Mistaking me for my abusive twin brother, she greets me with a swift kick to the balls and a busted lip. Then she really shakes up my world.
She needs her job, but she needs a break just as much. And nothing silences my demons as efficiently as playing the hero.
To protect her from my jerk twin—her boss—I take her on a business trip and quickly learn that she’s different. Blunt. Honest. Intriguingly strange. I’m transfixed, so when she unknowingly sinks a multimillion-dollar deal, I don’t speak up. Something my family won’t forgive.
Now, I have a choice to make. I can go against my own blood and burn the North legacy to the ground, or play it safe, commit to my self-imposed rules and predestined future. Choosing her would ruin my life as I know it, but I’m starting to wonder if a life without her is worth living.


Not my first read by the author but this is my 3rd book ever I’ve read by her and the other two were in this series. I really have loved this series thus far. This one I wasn’t sure what to expect but the hero right off the bat is WORTH it!

The heroine in this one is…different and not in a bad way she just happens to have some mental ticks (not like we all don’t) to hurtle over every day. Doesn’t help that she got a job at a place she LOVES working but got paired up with the evil twin. The hero is the non-evil twin who is actually really sweet, still stern and alpha but has a softer heart. When they get paired up on temporarily, the heroine might show the hero what it is to let go a little and live in the moment. BUT i have to say there is a line between someone being different and it just being little weird. I don’t want it to come off that there is anything wrong with anyone that is different but to me and reading this, I was not able to connect to the heroine. I don’t know if it’s just simple non-understanding of her ways or just the whole overall, so that kind of threw me back a little. I did not feel the connection between H&H like the hero was saying, it must have gone over my head because all I remember from them together is that they had some fun but mostly it’s separate. No connection. The dynamic between them gave me whiplash.

I ended up DNFing this book and did not go back, maybe I will eventually but for now I am leaving my review at this.
