A lovely ending to the Kane brothers, while leaving us wanting more on their little sister Daisy. I loved finally getting to know more about Denver and seeing him let himself find some happiness. I'd say this book is a standalone, but it really benefits the reader to enjoy the first two books in the series to fully understand all the backstory and family dynamics. 

Reclaiming Brave is a best friend's older brother romance. Sierra has long has a thing for her best friend Daisy's older brother Denver. When the inevitable happens, they can't put it in the past as they're now expecting a baby together. They each have to face their pasts to create a future for the baby and figure out how to make their relationship work.

Sierra is the light and airy side to this story. Denver is the dark and brooding mystery. Opposites attracting. But opposites can work. Sierra grew up in privilege, with a unique family tree that wasn't super close. She's a young artist trying to find her place in a world full of possibilities. Meanwhile Denver grew up without as much; his father severely negatively impacting his young adult life. He's not sure the future has much possibility for him. But when he finds he has a baby on the way, he finds he wants to share in Sierra's bright outlook for the future, and do better, be better, make changes, and stand brave.

There were little tidbits dropped in previous books about how Sierra felt about Denver, and the whisper of Denver thinking the same of Sierra. But they kept it to themselves to keep Daisy happy and not ruin family and friendships. When they combust on a couch (always a couch!), they try to make it everything so that it won't happen again, can't happen again. But the pregnancy changes everything. Denver has to come to terms with the idea of if he can be a good father. He's a great lover, but he needs to be more. So while he works on the father and relationship thing, they make the most of the hormones and have no problems with their sex life!

I love this author! Miss Azzi draws you into the Kane family and you shed tears of sorrow and hope and joy with them, for them. I loved the evolution of Denver in this book and the way his family rallies around him, and how he deals with Sierra's family. 

Conclusion - Recap how you felt about the book. Will you read other books by this author? Would you recommend this book to others? Final thoughts on book. 
This book is a close second for my favorite in the series. Denver had lost so much it was heartwarming to see him gain such light and love. I can't wait to too how he deals with his baby (not giving away the cupcake filling color!). Books that draw me in for the long haul, a series where I get to know all the family and friends, town and backstory are my favorite. You get to adopt them as yours for a while, instead of your own insane life for a while. So my thanks to the author for such amazing books, studly men, well rounded women, and great descriptions of hometowns. Can't wait for Daisy's story!

Favorite Quotes:

“Her mischievous smirk pisses me off as much as it turns me on.”

“From the first time I laid eyes on Denver Kane, I wanted to make him smile. Laugh. Trade a bit of his ever present severity for a spark of mischief.”

“We're in this, whatever this is, together.”
