Branda McFalls has lived through the worst and lived to tell the tale. Rather than shut down and hide from life, Branda embraces the opportunity to change and start her own company in a new city.

One day, when looking for new reading material at the local bookstore, she meets Troy Cortino. He is enthralled by her curves and beauty. She is just as enthralled, but believes that she is too large for him to be serious about her. Then she meets his twin brother, Trey, and is equally enthralled with him.

Through an old family custom, Trey and Troy establish that Branda has been fated to be their own. She, at first, believes that the men will not want her for the long term, but decides that joining with them is worth the risk. After a week of mating, the rest of the Cortino family descends upon the lovers. The women take Branda under their wing and give her the familial love and acceptance that she had been lacking with her own parents.

Trey and Troy offer Branda completeness and acceptance. Her family life was pathetic, to say the least, and she has suffered a great deal. She has endured physical abuse and had dealt with a stalker who is over the top.

I generally really like stories that involve women overcoming some large obstacle, like abuse or a horrible old relationship; however, Branda doesn't really strike me as a victim. She bounces back with an alacrity that doesn't make much sense to me. She leaves her old neighborhood to go live alone and create a brand new company. This makes her feel more in control, so I get that. What I didn't get was the "I'm so in lust with you, let's go to it" attitude that she seemed to have. The timing is off in the story.

The secondary storyline of the stalker/abuser seems a trite "oh yeah" addition. The man gets out of jail, hunts her down and then… nothing. The climax of that interaction was literally so fast that if you blink, you miss the confrontation. The pacing is awkward and uncomfortable to follow.
