BOOK REVIEW- LUKE, The Callahan Brothers
They are the Bad Boys of Brazos Bend—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John Callahan.
DEA agent Luke Callahan has suffered one loss too many and a fishing trip with his brothers is just what his broken spirit needs to heal. What he doesn’t need is a gorgeous stowaway harboring secrets and running from killers. Never mind that he does his best work undercover…
Maddie Kincaid is accustomed to trouble, but she’d hoped to leave it behind when she settled in peaceful Brazos Bend. Who would have guessed that helping a gentle old man would land her in the middle of an attempted murder—her own? Now she’s running for her life—straight into the arms of the infamous Luke Callahan.
Lucky for her, he’s deadlier than the men chasing her. Unfortunately for him, protecting her means breaking a vow he holds dear. When the nights heat up and the secrets start to spill, Luke faces a brand new danger—losing the woman he loves. What’s a mad, bad, and lethal Callahan man gonna do? AMAZON 4 STARS
It was okay, I liked it but I wasn't crazy about it. Luke was interesting and Maddie was a trouble magnet. She had a interesting background and some crazy ex-boyfriend experiences. There were a few times it felt like some of it was almost unbelievable. Luke hit it right on the mark with one of his comments. That everything that was in her past and what she was going through now was almost like a "soap opera".
The ongoing bitterness between Luke and his father was kind of hard to take. But so was the many manipulations that his father has gone through to try to "make" his sons reconcile with him. The emotions that it brought were good but I guess after awhile I was over it. There will be sex aplenty in the story as well as sexual tension and teasing sexual talk as well. If you can get past that, the story will heat up in the way of several mysteries that continue to happen. It will make you wonder the who, what and why of the feeling that Maddie still isn't safe. Not to worry, it will be answered. That's where more action in book happens to make way for a couple of twists to the story. About three quarters through the book, I had my suspicions of who was after Maddie. And I was right but I didn't know the whole story until the reveal, of course.
