Too weak to resist young Kelly Benton's attempts at seduction, Rowdy Mackay left home eight years ago. Duty as a U.S. Marine put a safe distance between Rowdy and the nubile Kentucky vixen with persuasive desires of her own. Now, he's returned home, his fantasies fueled, ready to engage the young woman in the kind of erotic games that have earned him and his two cousins Na ...more

Recommended to Eastofoz by: Julie (on loan)
I didn’t really like this book. It has too much of a sleazy/”porny” undertone to it even though it tries to come across as something else.

The hero, Rowdy (a totally stupid nickname as were the names of his two cousins Dawg and Natches –sounds like slang for an STD)—is a bit of a creepy Neanderthal. He’s way overboard with his “alphaness” for my taste. He’s too possessive and borderline psycho staking a claim on Kelly as “his” and his cousins even say “he’s CLAIMED her” --and mind you, so does h

I seem to be a masochist when it comes to books because I cannot resist the call of the full-blown-rant-inducing novels, no matter how often I say "well, I'm not going to read that". I'm not sure what it is but I can't help myself and, sure enough, this book was truly horrendous in every way.

I really enjoyed Wild Card by Lora Leigh, so much so that I immediately sought out her other books. I have no idea whether her Breed and Elite Ops series are as good as the first novel I tried but I doubt th

Rated 3.5

Okay, I should have rated it less than 3.5 stars, but three things prevented me from doing that:

1.H/H fell in love at a young age.
2.Dominant and protective hero.
3.Good ending.

Now, what I hated the most about this book:

Rowdy kept pressuring her to make a decision about his cousins. And I hated how the cousins acted like Rowdy has to share her with them just because they protected and didn’t let any other men touch her(Except her stalker, of course.) during his absence. Yeah, they did alw

If you like light suspense, Harleys, snippy heroines, and extreme alphas with a touch of redneck, then this might be the one for you. Rowdy and his two cousins, Dawg, and Natches, have been sharing their women for years. However, Rowdy has fallen for his step-sister (yes that is right) and now that she is no longer jail-bait and he is out of the military, he's ready to get serious. He knows she's had feelings for him too, so he sees his return home as his time to claim Kelley.
However, he's hopi

I really liked this book... did I love it? No. Let me explain...

I liked the plot in this book a lot! It alone could be worth 5 stars. Kelly is a 24 year old girl who has waited her whole life for Rowdy. He is 6 years older and joined the military when Kelly was 16 to get away from her. You see, Rowdy already had feelings for her, and she was just way too young!

Rowdy is finally back for good from the military, and when he comes home waiting for Kelly to leap into his arms, he's shocked to find

1.5* for me

This wasn't a good Lora Leigh read for me. One of the problems I had with this book is that I really didn't connect with either Kelly or Rowdy. (Which btw is the mascot for the Indianapolis Pacers - which is a, I don't know what, so that made me dislike the name even more.) The love didn't feel real to me. Maybe it was because the love was from page one and the rest of the book just didn't make it feel real to me. I read Wild Card of the Elite Ops series and the love was there through

This was a pretty good book. It was a common theme for Leigh with the man can’t stay away from the girl so he goes into the military until she gets older. Then he comes back for her. When Rowdy comes back this time he finds out that Kelly has been attacked and is being stalked. With the help of his 2 cousins, Rowdy sets out to find out who is doing it. The plot was very well done. In fact, I found this to be a little more plot filled than most of LL’s books.

1 - She's your step sister.
2 - His name is Rowdy!!
3 - Short of peeing on her to claim territory, he more or less did everything animal-like. The whole Mine Mine was just not cool
4 - i'll just end with a well deserved ICK again. I did not like these two.

I've had this series waiting around on Mt TBR for a while now and I'm finally getting a chance to start it. I figured I'd like, but wasn't sure how much because I know the complaints some other readers have about it. But for the most part, I really liked this book. I didn't really have any major complaints about it.

Series Note:
This is book 1 in Lora Leigh's "Nauti" series.

Kelly and Rowdy have been dancing around each other for years. But Kelly was too young and Rowdy wanted things from h

Maybe I'm slow. This is the third Lora Leigh story I've read. I keep thinking I'll like one of them. I like reading erotica. But the whole use of rape as a plot device, step brother - step sister as hero - heroine, group sex with your cousins as the only true sign of love, and half a dozen other things just sort of turned me off on this one. So why three stars? Well, I'll remember this book long after I will have forgotten so many others. I'll also remember a few of the blazing hot scenes.

Robin *loves sexy books*
I read a few reviews and know that some people mentioned this was the weakest of the series. I liked it a lot so if this is the weakest, I'm ready for the next one...

This is my first Lora Leigh book and I read it for a June challenge and glad I did. I look forward to more of her books.

This also falls under one of my favorite categories: the 'i know I shouldn't want you but can't stay away from you' couples! Love those.

Halfway mark review****I am liking the characters Rowdy and Kelly. She is younger but not totally naive when it comes to knowing what she wants, even after being nearly raped, she still gets shivers from Rowdy's touch. I don't like the fact that Rowdy wants to have a 4-some (w/ her and his cousins) its the supposed center of his love fantasies, but then if you consider the background given he doesn't have much to stand on w/o his cousin's help, it seems. I don't think it's a confidence issue but ...more

Nauti Boy fue un libro que me recomendaron ( gracias Olga, a pesar de todo te lo agradezco mucho ) y aunque desde que lei la sinopsis no me senti convencida de leerlo, decidi darle una oportunidad a pesar de que mis anteriores experiencias con la autora no habian sido del todo agradables, no se que es exactamente lo que me desagrada de las historias de Lora Leigh, si sus historias rebuscadas, la carencia de trama en sus libros o que, pero los li

Rowdy has been crazy about his step-sister Kelly since she was 16 but as he was 22 at the time he didn't feel it would be right to take things any further until she was older. To escape from her flirting he joined the marines where he has spent the last 8 years until deciding that Kelly is now old enough for him to claim her as his. When he returns home he finds a very different Kelly from the one he remembers on his last visit a year ago. Having been the victim of a vicious attempted rape and s ...more

I read Nauti Nights before reading this book and I'd definitely say Nauti Boy had more plot, though it didn't feel any less pornographic! It also had a certain sleaze factor to it that wasn't very attractive. Though likeable enough, the hero and heroine are actually related by marriage (yes, they are step-siblings!:o so I can't say I was entirely okay with their union. And as usual, I couldn't wrap my mind around the whole sharing thing and was glad that brief interlude between the characters wa ...more

LOVED! And I'm loving this series!

So far I have read 4 books of this series, but because I'm a lazy person writing reviews I haven't even started with this one yet! lol

The characters are amazing, the romance is fantastic, the sex scenes are off the charts and to add to this already perfect there is the suspense!

It's my kind of favorite book genre: romance with erotica and a twist of suspense!

No ha estado mal, la pasión entre los dos me ha encantado, pero el malo... A mí me gusta ver al malo en otras escenas, poder deducir quién es y meter la pata hasta el fondo, pero aquí no ha habido esa posibilidad y le ha faltado eso al libro, jugar con la mente del lector. La relación entre los primos no me ha convencido, por lo que me siento como Kelly: Douglas sólo para mí, no necesito a nadie más alrededor mientras le tenga a él ;)

I LOVE the Nauti Boys! If you love hot Alpha's, hot sex, and hot temperatures, give the series a try. There is an actual plot full of action, suspense and drama plus a fun, smokin' romance to go with it. Love this Series!

What a great book! I couldn't put it down. I am so happy that it ended the way it did! I like ménage, but I didn't think it would work with this couple. So much excitement too with a killer on the loose.
When I read the description on the back of this book, I knew, just knew, that it would turn out to be more tawdry romance (probably borderline weak-plot-development-erotica, really) than interesting suspenseful romance that I have read by this author. So why did I buy it? Well, I got it for a 3/4 off the sticker price. That was a big sell, and I am a book-a-holic...though a somewhat disappointed one.

In my opinion, the author could have done a lot more with the frame work that the back cover des

I'm was becoming a fan for Leigh and up until now I almost had no complaints. I have no idea what was going on with her in this book. First, as a Marine, the three cousins had no characteristics of a Marine especially one with combat experience. But I can forgive that because most authors write about military men but don't get it right At least Leigh didn't try to write about things which could have happened in the Corps and got them all wrong. What I can't get over is how Kelly sees Rowdy and s ...more
My first Lora Leigh book - WHOA. Kelly and Rowdy had the best thing going for them right away because the stepbrother/stepsister, forbidden love element is my favorite. Rowdy and Kelly have fought their strong, intense love for each other for years, while Rowdy turned to the Marines to try to keep him away. Finally, he returns home but things have changed, since in his absence Kelly was attacked and everyone kept that news from Rowdy while he was gone. As they overcome a stalker who becomes more ...more

I loved this book,it had me hooked from the first page the first time I read it and it did the same thing on the second go around. It not a book for the faint hearted as it is quite explicit but if you know other titles by Lora Leigh then you know what to expect and for those who have read 50 shades you now know what an erotic romance should be, not that weak imitation that claims to be the start of a new genre. There is no pretence here you just get hot sex with a damn good story, no bad 70 por ...more
This was my second Lora Leigh read, and it was pretty similar to the first one I read. Like really really similar. Like basically the same book. Guy is hot for girl but thinks she's too young so goes off to the military. Returns because she is now "ready" for him. Of course he is a big bad alpha male with a thing for butt sex and no problem at all with extreme public displays of affection. In fact this "hero" takes it one step further and shares his women with his cousins ( Seriously,I can't be ...more

Fighting the terrible memory of being attacked, Kelly was trying to hide the worst of it from the man she loved, Rowdy - he would have gone AWOL if he had known. Returning from the war, this time for good, he had come home to finally claim the woman that had been on his mind since she was too young to think that way about. Hearing what had happened to her had solidified his desire to always protect and keep her, but after he took care of her problem he knew he would also give her a choice. With ...more

I really hate this author even though she's popular as an erotica writer. This is the second erotica book I've read by Lora Leigh and I can't stand her male characters. Rednecks are not a turn-on for me! This book was especially bad in my opinion because 1) it used a crime as the plot device 2) that crime happened to be rape (yuck!) and 3) the heroine was a virgin, which is always dull. The dialog is horrible, and there's too much posturing, thinking and talking and not much action. The sex scen ...more
