Luke has lived on the wrong side of the law since he was seventeen. His hands are stained and his soul is black, but the worst sin he's committed is falling in love with his brother’s girl. Then he met her. Addy Monroe is pure, innocent and stubborn as an ox. Even though he doesn’t deserve her, Luke will stop at nothing to have her. But just wh

Note: Luke’s Absolution is the third in the Calloway Brothers Series and is a standalone that can be read independently of the prior two books. This reader recommends, however that you read them ALL and in order ;) No major spoilers are given to the prior stories, but come on – you have to read in order. (Is my OCD showing?)

From the moment I started book one, I knew one thing. I needed Luke’s book. His story. I needed to spend time with him and love him and just be in his presence. He was that c

Luke's Absolution was my first book by K.L. Kreig and now it will be my mission to work my way through everything she's ever written.

Good Lord what a graceful writer--but it's grace mixed with total badass.

I think the thing that really set this book apart for me, besides the quality of the writing, is the absolute chemistry between the two main characters. Like off the charts chemistry. Like there must be some equation I learned in high school chemistry to describe the reaction these two have wh

***** This book was kindly provided by NetGalley for an honest review***** Will be released March 26th, 2016!!!

It has taken me 10 minutes looking at this screen to try and put into words how I feel about this book and its characters. It is absolutely one of the best books I have ever read..... no joke. And I have read a few let me tell you. But you cannot start with this book because the previous 3 in this series are almost as good.

I have come to love these Colloway Brothers ~ Big Time. They each bring something different to the table, yet they are all so close and intertwined you can't help but love them all. Luke is definitely the black sheep of the family, but he has a love that goes so deep for his siblings, that it isn't until you read this book that you really get it. MY GOD Luke's story was such an emotional journey. There were times I was swooning with wet panties, to filling kleenex with my wet tears. KL Kreig tot ...more

I have been waiting for Luke's book since the beginning. I love me a bad boy ;)

Luke was sexy, dominating and freaking hot !! Abby was an oke heroine, but Luke really did it for me :))

Ofcourse there are secrets to be revealed and demons to be conquered, but most of all there is love, romance and steam !!

I can't wait to read Conns book. I bet his book is gonna be the best, since these books seem to get better and better....

4,5 stars from me

Every time I start this review I end up deleting everything I've written. I'm at a loss. I have no idea how to explain my feelings about Luke's Absolution without giving something away. Even though this can be read on it's own (and thoroughly enjoyed/loved/etc), I implore you to read Forsaking Gray and Undeniable Asher first. You will have a deeper understanding of, well, a lot of stuff.

Luke Colloway is that BBF you want to heal. He thinks of himself as broken, but at no time did I feel that wa

Luke’s Absolution (The Colloway Brothers #3) by KL Kreig
4.5 stars!!!

“You’re my color.”

Ever since I stumbled on this series and this author I have been itching for Luke’s book. While Gray and Asher have both had their moment in the limelight, finally it was Luke’s turn. While this book can be read as a standalone, I would highly recommend reading the series in order. Luke first appears in book one and is quite pivotal in Forsaking Gray and by reading that book it would give you a grea
This is book #3 of the Colloway Brother's series...and to be honest, I found it just a so so read for me. I do think that this was the case of "it was me, and not the book!!" I had a hard time staying focused on the story, but mainly because of my mind being preoccupied with my life issues! I still plan to read the last book, as I do like the author's work and I am eager to read about the last brother.. Hopefully my mind will be more into my reading when I do!! ...more

5 Incredibly emotional, scorching stars!

It’s been a while since I read a book that I gave 5 stars to. But this one hit the ball right out of the park. It has a mix of angst, sex, love, emotion, tears, and everything else that you could want in a story that will whisk you away. Including an incredibly hot alpha male.

Luke Colloway is the ultimate tattooed bad boy. He’s got a past that he’s not proud of. This is a broken man that doesn’t think he’s worthy of love. And that just makes you love him

I loved it immensely. I loved how author captured our interest towards the couple Luke and Addy from the prologue. Oh god, the tension they both had going on really made me hot and so bothered. Word after word, I kept reading to know what's going to happen. I was happy that Addy didn't give in easily and Loved how Luke didn't give up without a fight!! He knew what he wanted and went after him. the demons still plagued his mind but Addy silenced his storm, the beast raging in him and he wanted he ...more
I will read anything you write. K.L. Krieg.
Your next one really can't come fast enough.
You write words that connect characters together so well, you actually feel it in the pit of your stomach when they get butterflies.
I remember opening one chapter and literally feeling like I was on a roller coaster ...thinking...let's go!
I am a big fan of this series, and I would say that Luke is one of my favorites out of the clan. I think he may have fell the hardest.
The heroine...she was feisty

I'm bored out of my head with this story. I'm tolerating Luke, but Addy is bugging the fuck out of me, and I think I might slit my wrist if I have to read the word "Fireball" one more time. What a ridiculous pet name. This is such a bummer because I've loved all of this author's other stories. Think I'll start on Connelly's story. Fingers crossed.

This is the kind of book that has your heart racing so insanely fast that it may skip a beat and your head spinning around every few seconds to make sure no one is behind you as you sneak and read this at your desk. Your eyes reading so fast that you re-read the same sentence twice and it affects you even more. The sex scenes are so hot you imagine how your going to recreatethem when you get home!

I honestly don't even know where to begin with writing this review. There are no words I could possibly write that will do this book justice. It is no secret that I have loved all the books in this series and while I know this one is technically a standalone, I really think they should be read in order. Luke has been a big part of the previous books but especially the first one. I knew without a shadow of a doubt after reading the first book, Forsaking Gray, that I really needed Luke's story.

WOW! If I could give more than 5 stars I would give them all to Luke!
Living with his dark past and c=secrets has turned Luke hard and closed off to what he could have... LOVE from an amazing woman, Addy. His feelings of unworthiness are nothing compared to the need to have her, so he pursues her.
Addy has been in love with Like for a long time. So long that she has a hard time falling for other men. She has been burned and set aside so many times that she feels giving into to the one she covets o

Not even sure where to start with this review..... I have loved this series and was always insanely curious of Luke. What exactly is it about him that my mind seriously kept going back to Luke. So, needless to say, Ms. Kreig had some serious epicness to write because I just needed to know all that is Luke. She did NOT disappoint. She floored me and made my head spin so hard that I'm pretty sure my focus isn't back 100%. I found Addy to be the perfect woman for Luke. Without going into too much d ...more

I don't know what to say.. that's how bad I am at the moment..
Can I just say..yes, please.. I want a man like this?! Lol
Luke is hot, tattooed, troubled past and choices that are heavy to shoulder , but underneath it all he is a great man..even when he can't see it.
Addy has a tendency of going for the bad boys and she is wise enough by now to know that nothing but heartbreak comes she's not going to put herself through it again...but how can she resist the pull?

4.5 Fireball Stars!

This was a sweet, steamy read with a little drama but lot's of sexy, dominant alpha that borderline's on caveman, and a relatable heroine that is feisty but still sweet and caring. I love this author's writing! Her writing always reads smoothly and keeps you engaged. I love the that she always involves the H or h family. It just makes the story even more well rounded. At the end I always am always left completely satisfied. What else to ask for while reading the perfect steamy

I received this for an honest review!! First and foremost I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Such an amazingly captivating read that had me hooked from page one until the VERY END.. This author blows me away

This is Luke's story and OH WHAT A STORY!! Such a great read.. Every book I read the more I fall in love

Luke is the third Calloway brother who has been lusting after Addy and is determined he will be his. There are so many swoon-worthy moments in this book I was just in love all over the place!!

See review for book 4, but reading the same sexual positions and "male" POV. A lot of taking the heroine(s. of all three books) hard and fast in the same positions. Maybe I shouldn't have read all the brothers in one block. No, I know I shouldn't have. ...more

From the first moment I have read about Luke, he already had an impact with me. Strong character, very dark surrounding him, and intense. More intense than the other brothers. I was hesitant to start reading his book because I had expectations, and I don’t want to be disappointed. But disapp

This is the third book in the Colloway Brothers series and I literally could not put this book down! This is the first book I’ve read by this author and it definitely won’t be the last. This can be read as a standalone with no problem at all since that’s how I’ve read it. I jumped right in to an amazing series that I plan on following from here on out. Luke has a difficult and painful past filled with decisions he regrets making and he carries that burden heavily on his shoulders. He feels as if ...more
Oh dear, this was an anticipated next-book-in-the-series read that's left me rather disappointed. I really wanted to know Luke's story way back from Forsaking Gray, where the twists and turns, especially those that included Luke, kept me riveted. I loved Forsaking Gray, and Luke really intrigued me so I expected huge things for his book. He was the dark and silent protector, the hot takes-no-prisoners alpha and I was clamming for his book.

I'm in the minority with all the great reviews and rating

I don't know how to start this review because I was truly left speechless by this book- and that doesn't truly happen often. Already a big fan of this author's work, I must say that this is her best book yet. The characters jump off of the page, and the chemistry between them sent arcs of electricity shooting from my Kindle.

Luke has a dark past, having done things that he feels are unforgivable. He uses his body as a canvas for tattoos to tell his life's story of struggle and darkness. Luke loo

Another amazing book in this series. I thought Gray and Asher were hit but Luke was just amazing. Here is a guy who thought he was just this bad guy in and out but all the things he has done showsus what a truly good guy he is. I can't wait for the last brothers book, but at the same time it makes me sad to realize that will be the end of this series. ...more

This book can be read as a standalone, but it is best to read the series from the beginning. Luke is amazing! He has a very caring heart, and refuses to give up on something that he wants. There are certainly some surprises in the book that you would not expect. I can't wait for Conn's story!

This was the book I was waiting for in this series since I read Livia and Gray’s story. I was really curious about the big secrets Luke was holding and wanted to find out more about his dark past. I thought there will be some very complicated and drama-packed history there, but sadly this didn’t live up to my expectations. The pacing of the story was relatively slow and I was losing patience at some places. It wasn't a bad book, per se. It was a nice story, overly sweet at places with some drama ...more

There comes a time as a reader when you find an author that ticks every single box of what you are looking for. For me, KL Kreig is that author. From the very first pages of this book, KL Kreig drews me into a mindfield of sexual tension, longing and raw need. Her words are expertly woven to draw you in and invest you in the story in under 5 pages.

I have to admit that I have been eagerly awaiting Luke's book since I met him in book 1. I was intrigued by the blend of ultimate bad boy with a heart
