RELATIVELY CLOSE by Judy Serrano *book review*

Recovering from the latest family trauma has made the Montiago family wake up to the fact that their priorities have definitely been misplaced. With Max throwing himself into the depths of his work as an FBI operative, he inadvertently sends the wrong message to his wife and brothers. In Relatively Close, the third book of the series, Lilly fights for the attention of her husband, until it becomes painfully clear that she is up against a mistress way more powerful than the ones she has fought before. Keeping it relatively close is something with which Lilly is way too familiar. She turns her attentions to another, only to find out that the reality of the business, which has kept her dripping in diamonds and living in mansions, is nothing more than an ugly reminder of El Diablo anda suelto: The devil running loose.

My Review

This is the third book in this series by Judy Serrano and I'm still wanting more! This book picks up where Brother Number Three left off and Lilly is still just as confused! I think that's why I like her so much....I can relate... to the confusion, not all these brothers head over heels in love with her!

I'm not even sure who I want Lilly with!

Thank you Judy Serrano for another fabulous book.... eagerly awaiting the next one!

I also wanted to mention (pats self on back) That Judy Serrano has a quote from me on the COVER of the book! YAY! I was so excited to see that. Thank you!!

I highly recommend this book...just be sure to read the first two before you read this one.


I was given this book for my honest opinion, no other compensation was received.
