Emily is being abused by her brother, Chris Kincaid. Living and working on the McCade Ranch, she is rescued by the two gorgeous owners, Cole and Adam. Taking her into their home they refuse to let her leave.

Emily has heard rumors that the brothers like to share their women. She finds out first hand when they share her in the bedroom.

The two Alpha males, plan to keep Emily by their side permanently, until she is abducted by a ranch hand her brother owes money to. Will they rescue her in time?

Will she choose to marry one over the other? Or will they all get what they want?

In the books I’ve read about abusive relationships they aren’t in the sibling arena. It’s not that I’ve avoided the familial abusive relationship, it’s just I haven’t read any. This being my first experience, it was definitely intense.

Emily has a very unpredictable relationship with her brother. She's always on edge when he’s around, not knowing what kind of mood he will be in. Chris immediately becomes the villain of this story since he’s supposed to be protecting and caring for Emily, not abusing her. Although Chris’ character doesn’t interact a lot with the others, his scenes are intense and emotionally challenging for the reader to witness. His presence is felt throughout the rest of the story because of the deep rooted abuse his encounters with his sister have left behind.

Cole and Adam McCade have always felt protective of Emily since she first came to their ranch. They keep an eye on both her and her brother and aren’t blind to the changes that progress in their relationship and the effect it has on Emily. In other words, they are very observant men. Questioning her about these changes in demeanor won't work, so they decide it's time to show her their true feelings and earn her trust.

This was a classic tale of a damsel in distress waiting for her white knight(s), but with the sexiest cowboys you'll ever have the pleasure of reading about. Emily goes through much abuse throughout the story, both physical and emotional. She's a petite woman, but with a very brave spirit. She has abandonment issues, so it makes it hard for her to trust anyone. Cole and Adam are determined to change that way of thinking. They are protective, caring and the kind of men you can't help but fall in love with immediately.

Becky Wilde knows exactly what women want in a man and delivers it in her writing with emotional clarity. The title of the book is quite appropriate to the story since Emily does get ‘saved’ in more ways than one. The sex was beyond stimulating and very refreshing in that it didn't seem redundant. It's an unfortunate thing for men in the real world because the men in this tale have definitely raised the bar. I would love to know what's next on the horizon for this talented author.

Recommended reading for those seeking a classic romance with the most passionate and affectionate cowboys you'll ever meet.
