She’s sheltered. He’s steadfast.

Sage Marlowe was born with grace and care.
Loving her religion and understanding her place in the compound was drilled into her from the moment she could walk. Never leaving until she was a teen, she had no clue of the outside world.
She didn’t understand that she had choices, or could have opinions. She didn’t know she could have freedom.

**Disclaimer: Please keep in mind this is a series revolving around three brothers, and while the titles could be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading them in order, especially as we see interactions with Loch and Sage in book two.**

Loch is quiet, loyal, and inexperienced in certain things. What he knows is that he enjoys working at the shop with his two older brothers, and is happy they've each found the woman for them. It appears Loch has met his one also, but there's complications

Great book!

Loved Lochlan, aka 'Loch' alpha to the max! Swoon! Sage was such a brave woman! Suffered so much, felt so sorry for her. Much stronger for it.

This book pulls you right in and doesn't let go!

Love the Hogan bro's!

* I received an arc for my honest review *

I've read One Chance (Sophia and Nox's story) and One Choice (Levi and Hayes's story) who are both older than Lochlan (he's the baby brother of all of the three Hogan brothers), who are alpha males, protective, possessive, passionate, tender and loving towards their women, Sophia and Hayes, so I knew Lochlan was going to be the same as his brothers. A caveman with a soft side only reserved for his mate ;) ♡

I loved the connection that Sage and Lochlan had

I don’t think I have ever anticipated a book at much as this one! To say that I was blow away was an understatement! This book was epic and everything we didn’t even know we wanted from Loch & Sage. The new title fits this book to a T and I completely understand now why she changed the name.

Loch & Sage’s Book is filled with more emotion that I can fathom. Sage has unwavering strength. Their story is about strength, adversity, a powerful connection, and freedom. My pulse increased with e

Loch & Sage’s story is filled with so much emotion. I have to say this, to me, was an EPIC read and I loved every moment, from the beginning to the middle to the end. The characters (Loch and Sage) drew me in from the start and kept me hooked all the way until the very end, in fact I didnt want their story to end. I laughed, I cried, i oohh and ahhh'd and the story took me on an incredible journey of love, of loss, happiness, anger, of heartbreak, and doubt. Together, Loch and Sage must figh ...more

Oh my goodness, it seems I've been waiting to get my greedy little hands on this book for so long and boy did it deliver!
I just knew before I read it that it was gonna be awesome. The characters all drew me in from the start but I knew Loch was going to be my favourite.
The story is so beautifully developed, well rounded and really well thought out and executed. The writing just draws you into someone else's life even for a little while and it's so wonderful how the author can do that with ever

5 FAITHFULLY stars! This book will rock your world. Loch Hogan is going to ruin you sweetly (mark my words)

K. L. Donn has done it again! Her writing is too addictive and her men are so intense, protective and devoted. I thought that Nox and Levi ruined me forever nevertheless Loch wins my heart. He is the sweetest of the Hogan Brothers.

Unchained is my favorite book in the series. It was a great reading. I enjoyed every page of this piece of heaven. It is hard to give only five stars to this boo

From the moment Lochlan Hogan laid eyes on the beautifully mysterious girl with ash blond hair and crystal blue eyes, he knew she was the one for him. The problem was he had no idea who she was and she was never allowed to speak in his presence.

Sage Marlowe was a child of her upbringing. Unfortunately for her, that upbringing was based on a strict religion preached by her father on an isolated compound. When she is finally allowed to accompany her mother off the compound for the first time, she

This third book in the Hogan Bros. Series is the most emtional one and I loved every word of it!!!!

This is the third book in the Hogan Brothers series, but can be read as a standalone. I recommend reading book one and two before reading this one because it does give insight into the secondary characters and makes for a more enjoyable read.

This third book centers around Lochlan (aka Loch) and Sage. Loch is the youngest of the Hogan brothers and in my opinion the most feeling of the three. He is a

It has been said that people come into our lives for various reasons but nothing is by chance. That’s exactly how I feel about this third book in the Hogan Brothers Series, Unchained.

This book impacted me in ways I wasn’t expecting! Loch and Sage are an amazing couple and one who went so far just to come together. I loved that this wasn’t just some normal boy meets girl, they fall hard and girl gives in quickly. This story is a whirlwind and there were several twists that had me grasping for mo

This book is book three in the Hogan brother’s series. This book is Lochlan and Sage’s story. As soon as an arc of this book arrived on my kindle, I dived in. I read this book in one sitting and wasn’t once bored. I found this story truly emotional. Sage and Lochlan’s story was an emotional rollercoaster. Whilst reading this book, I went through a few emotions. Anger, sadness, happiness and peace. Without giving anything away, I truly HATED the villains in this story.

I must say KL you have outdone yourself with the last Hogan brother which I have to say thank you for saving the best for last. Lochlan is happy with his life he's glad his brothers have found their girls and to be working with his two best friends also. Enter the beautiful and sheltered Sage who was raised with absolutely no outside influences in her life and never knew that she had choices. One look is all it takes for Lochlan and Sage

Raw. Heartbreaking. Loving.

Lochland and Sage’s story is one of strength and courage. Their story is one that tests the bounds of love and trust. Sage is a woman who basically has been held captive by her parents her entire life. When she meets Loch at his garage she is immediately drawn to him but because of her upbringing she isn’t allowed to talk to him. As her 18th birthday approaches life for her at home becomes unbearable. Her father has chosen a man for her to marry. She wants no part of i

This is a story that will grip you from the start and having you reading like there is no tomorrow. I did not want to put it down. Loch feels so connected to her from the first time he looks in her eyes and it is that strength of a bond that takes him on this journey. I admire his determination, his feelings and absolute devotion. Sage... oh she is amazing in her inner strength. Truly someone that will not be defeated.

Seriously one of the best and most emotionally driven stories I have ever read. I laughed, cried, and went on an incredible journey of faith, love, heartbreak, and doubt, only to be once again reminded of the power of love and redemption.

KL knocked this one out of the park. I am still trying to recover and want to go back into this world and visit.

I left a little piece of myself with this book, I'm not sure I will ever get back, nor do I want to.

At times gut wrenching but with the most beautiful love story. This was the note I wrote myself while reading this book.

Lochlan and Sage have the most beautiful and saddest story to tell you. You will fall in love with them, you will cry for them, you will want revenge for them. This still has the hot, male possessive hero that KL has in her books and her strong woman who stand up and fight as KL does so well. This book will leave you wondering what did I just read and you will want to read it

Unchained is the story of Lochlan and Sage. Lochlin is the youngest of three brothers, who is very quiet and reserved. He’s a think before you speak kind of guy. Sage is a girl born to a situation that most don’t understand. She has been secluded from the real word and taught how to act, what to think, and who to be. A chance meeting between the two shifts both of their lives.

What can I say about this book. Well for one thing it broke my heart. But luckily it put it back together again.
Sage is such a sweet young girl that lives her family and the Lord. But things are changing and she does not understand these changes. She looks around for answers and does not find any. But then she looks into the warm gaze of a young man and her life changes forever.

Imagine the people who should love you and protect you not doing that. Wouldn't it destroy you? Sage is the sweetest most caring person who believes in grace and forgiveness. Loch is obsessed with the mysterious Sage. Even though thier interactions have been limited there's a pull between them. Unchained is a very emotional story about faith love and betrayal.

This was a book worth waiting for. I could not have asked for more from the final book of the Hogan Brothers. Once I started the book, I could not put it down until it was finished. It had me entranced from the beginning, and I was biting my nails throughout the book. Loch and Sage made the perfect couple. I loved the religious aspect to the book, and that Sage did question everything. It made the book more realistic, and I could really believe what I was reading.

Wow - this was an emotional story! Although the other 2 Hogan brother stories are also chock full of emotional angst and drama this one definitely takes the spot as winner in those categories. I enjoyed it a lot but wouldn't say it was my favorite out of the trio... There is a LOT of time spent on Sage's situation and issues and I found less on the relationship between her and Lochlan.

Still a really great read and if you've read the other 2 you were probably anxiously awaiting Lochlan's story (l

This book really had it all. Mystery, romance, suspense, love, heartbreak and everything else in between. Sage is such a young character but also a bit wise and strong for her age. She went through some terrific situations but she had the love of a great guy by her Lochlan was the strong silent type but when he and Sage met he knew she was it for him.

I loved the first two as good smut. It was what I needed at the time. This had potential to changed the series. To make it more in depth and give the readers to come back for secondary characters that are crying out for some screen time. Hopeful she can pull it back together after this. I'm still interested in the shop as a spin off but we'll see I'm on the fence.

It was okay

This is the last book in the Hogan Brother series!! It seems like this one will be a forbidden love!

Sage Marlowe - she lives in a compound and her father is very strict.

Lochlan Hogan - hard working mechanic that fell for a 17 year old girl on sight!

Nothing taboo, just two people trying to find each other in this quick read. There is some mystery behind a murdered girl, parents that seem crazy and a 40 year old man that chases young girls! Enjoy.

I absolutely loved this and think it's my favourite Hogan brothers book from the 3. The love between Loch and Sage was beautiful and the story behind them was brilliant. This book was a lot more emotional than the others and I was on the edge of my seat throughout. I hope some of the secondary characters get to tell there story especially Asher and Elianna. Once again Krystal delivered another unforgettable read :)

This book was not what I expected but so much more!! This story of Sage and Loch made me feel so many different emotions throughout the book. I loved that this book was so different from her others and it had me so drawn in that I had to read it in one night. You don't want to miss the story of the last Hogan brother. This book will be so much more then you will ever expect! I can't say enough good about this book. Don't miss out on this one.
