Midnight Sins (The Callahans #1)
His name is Rafer Callahan. He was a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who fought through life the only way he knew how: with his fists. But Rafer never meant to bring any harm to Cambria Flannigan, the girl—the lover—whose sister he’d been unable to save…
Cami lost her sister in the brutal murders that rocked her hometown so many years ago. Some still believe that
Dear author, please stop trying to pile in lengthly over-wordy sentences that go in circles and make absolutely NO sense. If you are trying to make a point, get to it. Stop fiddle fucking with run on sentences that have no direction or point and give me a headache trying to decipher what the hell you are trying to imply in just. one. sentence.

The backstory is a confusing, the timeline confusing.. and plain WRONG - it doesn't add up or the age of the character changes all of a sudden.. Characters popping up out of nowh...more
Well, this time I couldn't help myself. I gave the book one star, because there wasn't a half star or quarter star available to choose. I'd just picked it up, thinking a little escapism would be fun. A sexy adventure, I thought.
It was obvious to me that Lora Leigh is a story teller (sometimes this is enough) and upon completing the book, I was amazed to see how many books she has out. But that m...more
I used to go to Lora’s books for my angst fix. But this book is just overkill with the angst. It’s too much angst and drama shoved down the reader’s throat right from the beginning. I didn’t have time to develop any feelings for the characters because there’s too much unnecessary storytelling. I...more
The beginning sets the background for the meat of this story. After suffering the loss of her husband, Jaymi takes up with his best friend, Rafe Callahan, the man Tye had asked to care for his wife in every way if something should happen to him. They both know this affair is temporary. Jaymi especially wants to end it because she has come to realize how much her little sister, Cami, loves Rafe.
kink: usual uber alpha male domination and anal
Well I agree with most people that Lora's writing has gone down in the last couple if book. While Lora is known for her hot alpha heroes and sex scenes I feel that are becoming more over the top and not believable. I have read almost all of Lora's stuff from the beginning and I know she is having a tough personal life so I am still giving her the benefit of the doubt because she does write like crazy. I think she needs to slow down...more
The heroine has wanted the hero since she was 9. Yes that is not a typo. They get together when she is 18 or 20. I'm not sure because the text of the book varies her age. (that is, in part, how you know it is an LL book right?). She gets pregnant. Has a miscarriag...more
dette er den første boken jeg har lest av forfatteren (tror jeg) og jeg kan ikke si jeg er så imponert
hvis du vil lese en veldig klissete bok med masse klisjeer, DA er det den rette boken for deg
hvis jeg må høre Cami snakke EN gang om hvor redd hun er for å bli forelska i Rafer eller "my soul is damaged" eller hva faen
på begynnelsen var boken veldig komplisert med mange forskjellige familienavn og forhistorier
og det var kjedelig så jeg gadd ikk...more
Three cousins home from their time as snipers in the military to the town and families that despise them- Sound familiar?? Yep, this series should have just been called The Nauti Boys Revisited with New Names and all new confusing details.
You know the first 100 pages of this book, I was actually okay with the rehashing of the Nauti boys story line. Honestly, I loved tho...more
Without giving anything away, the whole story is based around a family feud of lethal proportions. That's all well and good, but where Leigh tripped up is with too many characters! In talking about the feud, so many character names were mentioned that it sent my head spinning. Eventually, I just started skipping over the paragraphs where it was mentioned. By the way, there is NO need to mention the same conflict in virtually every...more
As I said it had great potential, when I started this book I thought it was going to be a great story. I am even willing to go on to the next book to see if it is better because the story should ha...more
Certain scenes were ignored and then repeated. The basic facts of the back story were changed throughout the book. The timeline varied depending on whose point of view was being shown.
Save yourself the trouble and just don't bother reading this book. The only way I was finally able t...more
For me... Not so much. The plot is so light (sorry but I felt it was so ridiculous a storyline - getting together with your older sis...more
When reading one of her books it is just accepted that there will be editing errors, misspellings, continuity mistakes, etc. It's really a joke already. When you read reviews of her books you see mention after mention of this and everyone shakes their heads and giggles a little.
This would have gotten five stars had the back story of how the Callahan cousins came to be the outcasts of Sweetrock wasn't stuck on repeat like a broken record. After hearing it the fifth or sixth time it felt like filler. Second towards the very end a character (Amelia Sorenson) that had only been a blip in the story shows up and its a bit strange because her story line feels underdeveloped...more
