Overview

They are the Bad Boys of Brazos Bend--Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John Callahan.

New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestselling author Emily March invites readers to travel from Eternity Springs to Brazos Bend, the small hometown of the Callahan brothers snuggled deep in the heart of Texas.

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?

Luke--The Callahan Brothers (Brazos Bend, #1) 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 43 reviews.

While this is a good read it should not be listed as a new book. It is reprint of "give him the slip", same author using pseudonym to sell more books without writing a brand new story. I don't think that's fair to the reader.

What happens when two independent people find that sparks fly whenever they're together, and though they both have secrets, they find that they do need each other for life and for love? Luke, and his brothers, Matt, Mark, and John were know as the "bad boys" of Brazos Bend when they were teen agers. Now, John's murder caused the others to become estranged from their wealthy Dad. They have all become responsible adults, working in different government agencies. For Luke, he's just resigned as a DEA agent after the tragic loss of his partner. He's going off on his large boat for a fishing trip when an unexpected guests shows up asleep in his guest room.  Maggie Kincaid was that "sleeping beauty". She's been living a quiet peaceful life in Brazos Bend, running her business, Home For Now, helping old and infirm people remain in their homes. She has her own notorious and secret past and she's unwittingly gotten herself in deep trouble. She needs Luke's help but he wants no part in more investigations. The problem is that just looking at Maggie is like being drawn to a magnet. Sometimes they stick like magnets, but they also find themselves pushed apart like magnets in reverse polarity. But Maggie's life may just depend upon Luke's help. This is a roller coaster ride of a romantic mystery. The characters are complicated but so endearing. I soon became very involved with Luke and Maggie, finding myself crying for them one minute and yelling at then another minute. The mystery came with lots of clues but I was guessing until the very satisfying surprise ending. I was left wanting more!! Luckily, Emily March will soon have two books coming out continuing the stories of Matt and Mark.

If you love Emily March's Eternity Springs series you have to check out her Brazos Bend books. LUKE CALLAHAN has action, humor (there were times I was laughing out loud), and still tells a heartwarming love story that is classic Emily March. A really great read!

I love it, please update. But one thing is I don't understand how they didn't recognize her. Just because she dyed her hair and did this whole makeover thing doesn't mean she'd be unrecognizable. When I dyed my hair and put on all this makeup and stuff, people still knew it was me. I'm not trying to bash on your story, just giving soke constructive criticizem here.

'Luke: The Callahan Brothers' (Brazos Bend Book 1) by Emily March is a terrific story. This is the story of Luke 'Sin' Callahan and Maddie Kincaid. I absolutely loved this story! It's a excellent start to this series. Emily March has written another winner! I was hooked from the very beginning and didn't want to put the book down. This story is full of romance, suspense, humor. It's a excellent read. I can't wait to read what happens next in 'Matt: The Callahan Brothers'(Brazos Bend Book 2). Highly recommend to all fans of romance. I've been anxious to read about the Callahan's after reading Emily March's Eternity Springs series.

I enjoyed reading Luke and Maddie story it was exciting and one of the best stories I have read . I like to have the story make me laugh this is one that will have you laughing as you read it. The characters are love able and if you like hot and steamy it delivers, of Luke is a hunk but what I like most is Mattie has curves and the story is so romantic also there is a mystery involved I feel that Emily March is a excellent writer she can spin romantics and mystery together like no one else, I recommend this to all the fans that want a great book to curl up with in their favorite place this is it. I got so involved with the book I read through the night to finish it. This a wonderful book to have I know I will read it again and again it's just one of those that will be a romantic classic.

If you have read "Give Him The Slip" by Geralyn Dawson, then you have already experienced this delightful adventure. Emily March and Geralyn Dawson are one in the same and this is an updated and tweaked version. I highly recommend  this book to anyone looking for a small town adventure filled with family, friends, nosy neighbors, treasured pets and -of course- love. Normally, I know exactly what is going to happen during a story. This time Emily gave ME to slip tho! A huge part of the novel is a mystery (no spoilers!) and I was rivoted until the end. Yes, I figured out the bad guy before she clued us in.. but not nearly as quick as I normally do! (Sparkle caught me off guard! *pout*)

Wow, I didnt know this series existed.. I need to get out more. Maddie & Luke were great together, I couldnt put this book down. I am usually good at figuring out the bad guy, no, Emily March stumped me.

Emily March has done it again with Luke - The Callahan Brothers. She reeled me in at the first page and kept me riveted throughout the entire book. Hunky Luke (oh those ABS!) and sexy Maddie are so funny (laugh out loud funny) and hot (steamy!) that I fell totally in love with them. I literally read this book while I cooked and cleaned because I could not put it down. There are twists and surprises you aren't expecting and I can't wait for the rest of the books in this series. I was thrilled to be chosen as an advanced reader because well, Emily March ROCKS! Get this book, I assure you that you won't be disappointed

Wonderful book and loved Luke and Maddie. Great characters and awesome story. Can't wait to start on Mark's story and return to Brazos Bend once more to see what the Callahan brother's will be up to next.  Thanks for an interesting ride and can't wait to see what kind of trouble Mark gets in to. .

I deleted it after 100 pages. Too much violence.
