Can their love give her the strength to overcome the tragedy in her past?

Colters' Legacy, Book 2

When police officer Seth Colter sees the delicate, shabbily dressed beauty in line at the soup kitchen where he's serving, he's gut shot over the idea of her being on the streets cold and alone. More baffling is the dark, possessive instinct that tells him she belongs to him.

Not as bad as I'd feared. You have to be able to put aside a lot of questions, not think "Well why didn't they do that?" and "How come they..." and "What do they see in..." and "How could she..." and just let yourself be entertained by a story where women (or should I say the woman) is placed on a pedestal and worshipped, doesn't have to lift a finger (unless she wants to) and her every whim (including sexual whims) is met by three hunky brothers whose only goal in life seems to be to please the ...more

This story is about the second generation of the Colters, after Colters' Woman, Colters' Wife, and Callie's Meadow. The heroes are the Colters' three sons. The oldest son sees our heroine, Lily, in a soup kitchen and take her home since she is homeless. Unfortunately, his two younger brother see Lily too and want her also. They soon realize that they might have to follow the family tradition (practiced by their parents and grandparents) of sharing one woman.

Bottom line, this was just okay. The p

I couldn't have been more excited when i was offered the chance to read Colters' Lady by Maya Banks. I'm very much on Team Colter

Yes this book is has the same premise as CW did, three Colter men and one woman. But that is where the similarites end. The one thing i thought was lacking in CW was how the men decided to share a woman in the first place we never saw that, and in Colter's Lady i got it. None of the brothers had prepared for falling for the same woman despite having three fat

I enjoyed this book. I know it's not perfect by any means, but it just worked for me. Sometimes that happens.

Series Note:
This book is a sequel to "Colters Woman"...I wouldn't say its necessary to read that one first, but I think it'd be helpful.

Some thirty years after there parents set on a path of an unconventional relationship (one woman, three brothers), their three sons are making their way in the world, never planning to follow in their parents' footsteps. But then Seth, a Denver co
3 'Colter Bros to Share' = 3 Stars
Book 1 worked pretty well. Book 2 not so much. The brothers aren't as close and they don't seem so eager to fair and square share, each more set on staking his own claim to woo her individually.

So their backhanded wooing to claim their "prize" without bothering to bond as brothers together first in her "best" interest just didn't work for me...especially seeing how skittish she was with her messed up past.

Worth a listen, just beware it's not as good as Book 1.
Ugh I don't know why I tried the sequel. This series is not for me.

With the first book, Colters’ Woman, it felt as if the sex scenes took over and left the remaining plot threads unwoven. I wanted to feel like the plot and the resulting sex actually went together, instead of the book relying on the foursome. The promise was there for the first book, and I wanted to hold onto that promise.

Lily has been living on the streets in Denver for three years. She's just trying to survive and forget the sins of her past. That’s when Officer Seth steps in to save Lily. Imm

Lily es maleable, más niña que adulta. Los Colter hijo, bueno, no los veo cómodos con el acuerdo. En lo absoluto. Ellos no lo querían hacer, pero como está en el gen Colter, es inevitable (pura mierda) querer compartir a Lily.

Seth es el que más sale perdiendo. Él la encuentra primero, pero rápidamente la pierde. Michael y Dillon la "tienen" más que él, y él siempre queda a lo último y en el olvido (awful).

Read the first one but just couldn't buy it this time around. Gotta give me some reason 3 brothers would not each want their own woman other than "just because."

Maya Bank’s ‘Colter’s Woman’ was the first erotica story I ever read, so I have a bit of a soft spot for it.
In that first book Maya Banks introduced three very unusual brothers. Adam, Ethan and Ryan Colter were three men who grew up in a family with three dads and one mother – and that family dynamic stayed with them into adulthood and became their ideal family unit. Then Holly stepped into their lives to fill the role of wife for the three Colter’s.

This sequel, ‘Colter’s Lady’ is set a few year

While Seth is serving he see’s Lily and he’s horrified over the idea of her being on the streets cold and alone. More baffling is the dark, possessive instinct that tells him she belongs to him.

Obviously, it grew better. The Colters' series I mean. Doesn't mean this is my fave you don't need to read the first one and go straight here. I still think you have to read the first one because well... it's a freaking series and you start from the first. Plus it's really good. But this one is better.
The problem with people is, when a story has been tagged as about sex or eroticism they all have their judgments already. Some just looked and looked for the sex and some doesn't even give it a cha
I expected more of the Colter Brothers and Holly, but I got Colter Brothers 2.0 as their kids are all grown up and in the world on their own. This easy to get into read flowed just as effortlessly as the previous installments. While mom and the dads beam at their offspring following in their footsteps they also provide a very strong bridge from the earlier books with their unusual family structure.

Maya Banks writes menage stories very well. Three brothers and one homeless lady, none of them expected to be in a multi-partner relationship. Seth, Michael and Dillon each fall in love with Lily when they meet her, and she returns their feelings. I liked the characters and enjoyed their journey to happiness.

Colter's Lady by Maya Banks was, for me, not as great as the first. Lily and the guys Seth, Dillon and Michael are great characters. I enjoyed how they each were against the idea of being like their dads but once they saw Lily, did a 180. (view spoiler) ...more

I loved this 3rd book's story line. This book's story line was sad but good. i loved the hot & steamy scenes. I loved Seth, Michael, & Dillon. The sons are nothing like their dads. I loved all the things Seth, Michael, & Dillon did with their lives. My heart broke for Lily. I loved Lily's strength in this story. I loved the ending. Awesome job Ms. Banks.

(June) 3.5* Not quite as good as the original - nice to catch up w/Holly and her men, but their sons are just not quite as intense. Of course, these books are so over-the-top-never-gonna-happen (but if they did seems to me they can only happen in a small town in the middle of nowhere!) - but they are fun - and hot!

Sometimes I like to blindly barge into books, without reading any description. I want to be surprised. Sometimes this surprise is of a negative variety.

Fast paced.

Although this book was similar to book one, MMMF, it was still interesting. I liked Lily's tenacity and her relationship with the guys. Fun series.

OK, so now I'm ready to do a full review of this series as it stands at this time. meaning I have read all the books presently published as of today.

First I'd like to say that over all, it was a phenomenal family story. I laughed and cried and laughed and cried through most of the books. They were all very touching.

As for the unique lifestyle of the Colter men, the boys didn't get a very good character exploration in their story. It was told to us that the father
