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…

First, let me sum up my experience with reading this:
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.

I've loved Lora Leighs Seals, Ops and Nauti series'. Some of my favourite reads. Her alphas always satisfy. But this just did not hit the mark at all. Was very close to others of hers I've read. Changed from one scene to another so quickly think i got whiplash. And too much sex! Yes i love sex it my books but not page after page of it.
Unfortunately just didn't work for me!
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.
Yet I ...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 ...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 ...more
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 ...more
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
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
while trying to read (i did get to page 86) i made only one note, and it was: this reads like a playboy letter to the editor. the sex scenes were SO freakin' cheesy, the dialogue brutal ("f*ck you until you can't live without my c*ck sliding inside you any more i then i could live without your sweet p*ssy milking the come from my balls". - really?!?!)

In the small town of Sweetrock, Colorado there were three Callahan cousins, Crowe, Logan, and Rafe, that were ostracized from everyone in the county. People either ignored them or went out of their way to be mean to them, even as kids. The friends they did have befriended them in secret. Why did a whole town turn on these young boys? What did they do that was so wrong a whole community felt they needed ...more
The first in a new series that I will avoid. I eventually found myself hoping that the heroine would be killed so I wouldn't have to listen to her anymore. Sure, the hero would have been bummed, but, trust me, he'd be so much better off. Not that he has been impressing me much either. The best I can say for the hero, Rafe, is he's stubborn and very considerate. Seems to be a good lover.
The only ...more
Arrrgggghhhhhh! Do you know how frustrating it is to read a new book by an author you've usually liked and when you finish all you can think is: It was aiiiight?!!??
This is the second book this year by Ms. Leigh that leaves me feeling like that. Was it bad? No. It was just a bit of a slow mess. And I also felt a bit of recycled plots. Not as a whole, but I felt at times like I was reading a Men of August book.
Rafer Callahan is one 3 cousins that have ...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
There is a lot of information thrown at you in this one and you have to stick with it to eventually make sense of it all. In true Lora Leigh ...more
While I liked Rafer and Cami together, I did get tired of their whole drama. I was also more than a little grossed out by ...more
I only got through 35% of this story. This definitely an incomplete review, so I hesitate to give it a star rating. This is the first Lora Leigh book that I didn't practically devour in one sitting, so I have to hope that the book gets better further into the ...more
a dissappointing read and not up to LL usual standard. Turned the pages fast but not because I loved it - it was because I was hoping that something was going to happen before I reached the last page.
It looks like this has been a thumbs down from a lot of her readers.
I would give it 2.5 stars is available.
