Give Him the Slip (Callahan Brothers #1)
Maddie Kincaid thought she finally found the simple life when she moved to Brazos Bend and started her own business. She never dreamed that helping a gentle old man would force her to run for her life, right into the arms of the infamous Luke "Sin" Callahan. He has just settled into a fishing v...more
Top Ten Things I Liked About Give Him the Slip:
1. Three former hell-raiser, bad-boy brothers referred to as the “Holy Terrors of Texas” turned hard-edged military/security men/government agents

3. Spunky red-headed heroine and secret rock princess Maddie “Baby Dagger” Kincaid

5. A goldfish named Oscar

7. Hilarious dialogue
8. Zany, quirky, dynamic, offbeat...more

I LOVE this series! It reminds me of Nora Robert's trilogies where the are three siblings that are very close and involved in all three stories. Thanks ladies to all who pointed me to it! :D

Hmm… I’m disappointed to say that Give Him the Slip, the first Callahan Brothers book by Geralyn Dawson did not captivate me the way her Eternity Springs series, written under the pseudonym of Emily March, did. Angel’s Rest, the first book in the Eternity Springs series is John Gabriel Callahan’s (Gabe Callahan’s) story and was one that really grabbed me.
The four Callahan Brothers of Brazos Bend, Texas - Matthew, Mark and Luke (the twins
But things sorta fizzled out for me after that. Too many rabbit trails and whodunits. Too many snarls and grunts and crankiness by the hero. I don't think it was the author's fault (?) - my mind is going a mill...more
Give Him the Slip was just too light-hearted, loosely written, with a lot of slow parts for me to get hooked into. The characters, Luke and Maddie were okay. Thought Maddie being "Baby Dagger" was...more
Very enjoyable series debut featuring the Callahan brothers of Brazos Bend, Texas.
Luke "Sin" Callahan casts off from the marina on a peaceful fishing trip, only to be startled by an unexpected on board guest. Maddie Kincaid boarded his houseboat and fallen asleep while looking for a friend. A female friend.
Maddie's got big trouble. Her responsible and calm life has been uprooted when she finds a stash of drugs, and now she's on the run.

I like the romance to be the focus when I read romantic suspense and that was the case with this book. The suspense story was well-written and kept you guessing, but the romance was the focus and I really enjoyed it.
There are two other books in the se...more

I really liked this one. It was fun, had good characters and a nice mix of romance and suspense. I'm looking forward to reading about the other brothers, so I'll definitely continue with the series.
What I enjoyed:
* Maddie - poor girl has had a crazy life, but built something she could be proud of. Her secret is interesting (view spoiler)[Baby Dagger, the child who broke up a popular rock band (hide spoiler)] and I like her spunk.
* Luke - other than his father issues, he is just about perfect.
* Poor Oscar...
What could have been better:
* (view spoiler)[It seems a bit odd that Austin and his dad managed to keep the secret of what happened to Spa...more
maddie is a very cute woman, shes brave, independent, sexy as hell ..poor thing, she always had bad situation accidently through her life but shes survived it well..
luke is bad boy cop , alpha , sexy and smart..hes very smitten with maddie..hes in love with her all the way
sexy book and cant wait to read callahan brothers next series
Luke "Sin" Callahan is the perfect “bad” boy. His steam factor is off the charts. I am so glad that Maddie didn't let the trouble of her past relationships cloud her feelings for Luke. The suspense aspect of this book was also very good.
And I did not regret it one bit. Maddie isn't all that spoilt despite the reader being led to think she is, at first. From a pampered background yes, but not dumb and spoilt. We soon real...more

Anywho, when the author decided to start writing under her real name and start a new series spinning of of this one . . . well, it jolted my memory that I needed to read this series before starting her new one.
So, off to the library I went. I forgot how much I enjoy reading this author. Maddie and Luke's journey to HEA was a fun...more
Maddie's a rock star's daughter who's responsible for breaking up their band as a child because she wanted a normal home. Luke hates his dad because their youngest brother John was killed and dad never called Luke or his other sons to try and help rescue him. She loves small town life and he hates it and has sworn never to return to Brazos Bend TX but he's DEA and someone's stalking her.
Oh Oscar! you filled a void in my life; considering you're a goldfish ;) I just love the tenderness of Luke. Going back to save a goldfish. That amphibian has a three second memory span. It won't remember that its been left to the dogs! (pun intended)
The comic timing was perfect in the book and the sexual tension on slow boil. ( Fanning myself now)
Fun and flighty. Indulge your wicked inner wanton.
I liked the texas setting and Blanch Callahan, i picked the "baddie" early on but not really the storyline.
