About the Author

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank was born in Kansas City, Missouri and lived in the area until she was nineteen. Then she became a nomadic gypsy, living in five cities, four states and ten houses over the course of ten years before she moved back to her roots. She speaks English and smattering of Spanish and Chinese, which she learned through an intensive Nick Jr. immersion period. Her hobbies include witty (in her own mind) Facebook comments and dancing in her kitchen with her children (quite badly if you believe her offspring). Hidden talents include the gift of justification and the ability to drink massive amounts of caffeine and still fall asleep within two minutes. Her lack of the sense of smell allows her to perform many unspeakable tasks. She has six children and hasn't lost her sanity. Or so she leads you to believe.

This is my new favorite of the Bachelor Brotherhood series! Maybe even my favorite when including the Wedding Pact series too! Always You was so vastly different from the first two books in the series that it really stands out. You can tell it belongs in the series because of the mentioning of the brotherhood and the many familiar characters that show up throughout the book but it is very different from the other books, and also all the romances I’ve read. It is definitely an original and not just a typical cookie-cutter romance. There are relationships with children involved so there was a heavy focus on that and showing the difficulty of trying to start a romantic relationship when kids’ feelings are involved too and I really loved that. There were also new problems that Matt and Anna had to face that the other books’ characters did not so it added a unique-ness to it and there were parts I was unsure what would happen, and I definitely did not expect the ending. This is definitely an amazing book!

Always You is easily my favorite of Denise Grover Swank's Bachelor Brotherhood series! I absolutely loved Matt, Anna, and all the soccer kids! It's a first love - second chance story that I absolutely adored! The pacing is quick and the story offers is a perfect blend of heart warming romance, a hefty dose of humor, all the while being painfully real. I don’t know if I was particularly hormonal while reading this, but I got teary eyed for both Matt and Anna. Out of all the pairings between The Wedding Pact and Bachelor Brotherhood series, I liked theirs the most because they were able to reconcile their past. Matt could not be more perfect. I want a Matt. Where do I get one? I'm 35... so tick tock! This romance gets a rare *****5 STAR***** from me, and I’m picky when it comes to contemporary romance. I loved it!!!

I loved ALWAYS YOU by Denise Grover Swank. This novel grabs you right from the beginning, and the engaging plot never loses momentum. The two primary characters, investment banker Anna Fischer, and construction business owner Matt Osborn, have scorching chemistry. Their journey to a second chance at love is replete with desire, forgiveness, and two little five-year-old boys who become the best of friends. This is the third book from the author's BACHELOR BROTHERHOOD series, and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Anna and Matt dated and fell madly in love during college. Immediately after graduation, Anna turned down Matt's marriage proposal and moved to London for a job in finance. Matt stayed in town and took over his father's construction company. Now it is twelve years later and Anna is back to take care of her temporarily-ailed father. She is a single mom with a sleaze of an ex-husband. Matt has his own home and is parenting his nephew full-time, while his sister is pursuing a medical degree out-of-state. Anna and Matt meet on the soccer field, where Matt is the youth soccer coach. Their feelings remain unchanged from years ago, so finding a way to spend the rest of their lives together is a huge challenge they need to figure out. Ms. Swank has become one of my favorite authors, and I always enjoy her heartfelt writing style. This is a well-written book, and Anna and Matt are interesting, complex, and genuine. The main sex scene was hot and full of emotion. In addition, the characters' respective children add a lot of authenticity and innocence to the plot. If you enjoy a novel with a lot passion and energy, then pick up a copy of ALWAYS YOU. LJT, Romance Junkies, 5 Hearts

This is an endearing look into a second chance love that now has family complications. Well written and hits all the notes that a rom com should - makes you tear up, smile, laugh, and cheer. If I had one complaint the intimate scenes are not as descriptive as some romances, and there aren't many. But for a lot of people this is a positive! Otherwise really well written and does exactly what a rom-com should.

the third installment of the bachelor brotherhood series finds matt osborn running into the one woman who got away and broke his heart. anna fischer, now annaliese robbins, is a mom of a sweet five-year-old boy who happens to be best friends with matt's five-year-old nephew, ethan. while their initial encounter is less than warm and fuzzy, the more time matt and anna spend together it's clear that the spark between them hasn't fizzled out even with time and distance. in spite of everything, anna is still the one for matt. and one of the things that i love about this in always you is that his feelings are never in doubt. neither are hers. she loves matt, she always has, but life is complicated. and there are plenty of obstacles and reasons to keep them apart. but matt let anna go without a fight once before, and he's spent twelve years regretting it. this time, he's going to pull out all the stops. he wants, no, he needs anna in his life. that's the only way he will find happiness. he'd rather make the commitment now and work out the logistics later. and it's so refreshing to see someone who is all in. i loved it. **always you will publish on november 28, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/grand central publishing (forever) in exchange for my honest review.

I'm always a sucker for a second chance romance story and this is one of my favorites. Matt's world has already had a drastic change with him taking in his nephew recently. But then Anna, his college sweetheart, "the love of his life", "the one who got away", shows up unexpectedly and his whole world is thrown for a loop. You can tell from the moment they see each other again, that they both still have strong feelings lingering. This story is touching, heartwarming, a little sexy, while being humorous also. Add kids to the story and you have so many laugh out loud moments that are just so real to life. I went through all the emotions when reading this story, tearing up in a few touching scenes. Denise always pulls you into the story and makes you feel as you are right there with the characters. Fantastic ending to the series! I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book.

3.75 stars--sweet story of second chances 3.75 stars---ALWAYS YOU is the third (and final) instalment in Denise Grover Swank’s contemporary, adult BACHELOR BROTHERHOOD romance series focusing on three friends (Kevin, Tyler and Matt) who call themselves The Bachelor Brotherhood. This is construction company operator / soccer coach Matt Osborn, and single mom/international financial consultant Annaliese Fischer-Robins story line. ALWAYS YOU can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. The Bachelor Brotherhood series is a spin off from the author’s The Wedding Pact Series but you do not need to have read the previous series to enjoy The Bachelor Brotherhood. Told from dual third person perspectives (Anna and Matt) ALWAYS YOU follows the rekindling romance between former lovers Anna Fischer-Robins, and Matt Osborn, whose relationship twelve years earlier was destroyed when Anna walked out of Matt’s life in order to pursue a career in international finance. Fast forward to present day, wherein Anna Fischer, now a single mother of a five year old son, returns home to help her ailing father. Registering Toby for soccer, Anna will come face to face with her past-Matt Osborn-the man whose heart she broke when she refused his proposal of marriage, and any chance at a happily ever after. What ensues is the second chance relationship between two people who have never stopped loving one another in the face of heartbreak, pain and thousands of miles of open sea, and the potential fall out when Anna’s recent past comes looking for a second chance. Matt Osborn was destroyed the day Anna Fischer walked out of his life claiming she didn’t want marriage or children but was destined for the world of international finance overseas. Caring for his sister’s five year old son Ethan has our hero longing for a family of his own with a woman whose return to America is only temporary and fleeting. Anna’s return to US soil finds our heroine a divorced mother of one blowing all of her personal proclamations out of the water adding more anger to an already tepid situation between she and the man she once loved. The relationship between Anna and Matt is one of second chances; a rekindling romance that quickly develops into something more but something that may only be temporary as Anna is legally obligated to return overseas. Matt’s seduction of Anna pulls our heroine closer to the man she would always love but a man, who for so long, struggled in the face of betrayal and lost love. The $ex scenes are limited but passionate. Lanie and Tyler (Until You #2), and Kevin and Holly (Only You #1) return as secondary and supporting characters. We are introduced to Anna’s father Albert Fischer, her son Toby, and her ex-husband Phillip Robins; as well as Matt’s nephew Ethan, his mother, and his sister Abby Osborn. ALWAYS YOU is a sweet story of second chances; a delightful and heart warming tale of one man’s struggle to let go of the past; and one woman’s battle to secure her future. The premise is enjoyable; the romance is tender and fated; the characters are colorful and real.

Another great book in this series. So, the backstory - three best friends (male) realise that they have dated a series of extreme (for want of a better word) women and swear a pact to avoid all women. Of course, immediately afterwards they find their one true loves. Matt Osborn is looking after his five year old nephew Ethan while his sister Abby is away studying medicine, as part of that he has agreed to act as soccer coach to Ethan's school team. 12 years ago Matt proposed to his college sweetheart Annaliese (Anna) Fischer, he was heartbroken when she turned him down in favour of a job in London, England. At the time she told him she never wanted to get married and have children. Imagine his surprise when Ethan's new best friend Toby turns out to be Anna's son. Anna has returned to her small town from London to look after her father who has had a nasty fall. She has taken six weeks leave from her job in London and brought her son, despite her divorce settlement saying she can't take him out of the country. The last thing she wants is to be confronted by Matt Osborn who has every right to hate her after she left him high and dry. Despite their best efforts to avoid each other Toby and Ethan's friendship keeps bringing them together. But can they overcome the pain of the past? And should they try to reconnect when Anna is leaving in six weeks? This was a heartwarming second-chance romance - how could it not be with two cute five year olds and dogs and cantankerous old men? I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

This is the third and final book in the Bachelor Brotherhood Series, and even though I am sad its over, I feel this series went out on a huge high. This is a sweet second chance, contemporary romance that will give you all the emotions and elations. Matt is the last of the bachelors to stick with the pact he made with his two best friends Kevin and Tyler. For Matt, there was no one who could compare to his college sweet heart Anna who moved away 12 years ago. So when she returns home for a short time to help her ailing father, he is unsure what his feelings are now. For Anna, her biggest mistake was not accepting Matt's proposal and now she needs to make amends. I just fell into this book, and loved Matt for his sensitive and loyal personality. He would do anything for this family and friends. Anna was perfect for Matt, she has the same family values and is a strong and confidant woman. I loved hearing about the other characters from the previous books and their banter together. This author is clever with the wit! There is a little angst thrown in to give this a well rounded novel and I would recommend it and the other two books for a exquisite warm hearted read.

A long lost dream becomes a real life fantasy. When Anna broke Matt's heart, she never thought she'd see him again. Amazing how time and regret can shape a life and give a person the maturity they once lacked. Matt has never gotten over the girl who broke his heart. Can he forgive the girl and accept the woman and mother she has become? Always You is a what - if story of second chances and lasting romances. A little laughter and a heartwarming happily ever after.
