There are many different types of abuse. Physical, mental, emotional... just to name a few, and Jamie had them all. Whereas the overprotective brothers were endearing at times, during all the others they were just outright mean. When you look further into the family dynamics, their abusiveness is a product of a lack of parenting. Being left to raise 7 kids as a 18 year old is an overwhelming challenge, not to mention raising one girl surrounded by brothers, not many would be able to do it. When Jamie finally gets out from under her brothers and goes to college, doors open and freedom looks great. When she meets Jason, who by the way is just adorable at times, he seems like her knight in shining armor. Too bad he has to literally go through 6 men to be with her. I really liked the story, my lower rating was due to the length, which reading a character's day to day is hard and can make it dull. For me it just took too long to get to the finale. There are many instances of abuse but also romance. This is one of those books that is not for everyone, especially if you cannot separate your feelings and see it for what it is... a fiction story.
She dutifully follows these rules until she meets Jason Reed and the biggest one becomes a problem. No boyfriends. Torn between her loyalty to her brothers and the sizzling attraction to the intriguing ladies’ man, Jamie-Lea finds herself on dangerous standings with her overbearing and somewhat aggressive brothers.
Jason Reed isn’t intimidated by the Carters. He knows what he wants the moment he sees it and nothing is going to come between him and the girl he never expected to fall for.
With the odds stacked against them, where will this forbidden romance take them?
RJ was born in the UK and lived there until she was 21 and newly graduated with a degree in Linguistics and Phonetics. The relocation to Sweden was an easy choice having visited for the first time when she was 17 and fallen in love with the culture.
In her free time, RJ can be found with an impossibly large cup of tea and her nose in a book or fingers wrapped around a crochet hook and a tangled ball of yarn.
‘Right There with You’ was RJ’s first book and a real adventure to write. Jamie-Lea was the name of RJ’s imaginary friend as a child, mainly because Dairylea cream cheese was considered a major food group to mini-RJ. If they sold it in Sweden, her fridge would be full of it.
