Overview

Luke O'Reilly has seen it all, done it all, and lived through it all. When a career ending injury forces him to retire from the military, he struggles to adapt. Luke was born to be a soldier, not conform to the nine-to-five mediocrity of everyday life. He needs to protect and serve like he needs his next breath.

Angry, with a bitter taste of civilian life, he finds himself searching for purpose in dangerous operatives through the family business that is Brother's Keeper Security. Working alongside his brothers, protecting them and those they love, gives him satisfaction. But he still wants more – needs more – and struggles to find it. That is, until the one thing he didn't think he was searching for, lands on his doorstep. Literally.

Daisy King lives life on her own terms, just the way she likes it. A free spirit, until she finds herself in the protective clutches of Brother's Keeper, one frustrating brother in particular. As the key witness to a high-profile murder, the stakes turn dangerous and take an unpredictable twist leaving her once simple life an existence she'll never reclaim.

In a true tug of war between good and evil, Luke fights to overcome his past, to protect his future. Can Luke and Daisy save each other and find a happily ever after? Or, does murder and mayhem prevail, robbing Daisy of her freedom and sentencing Luke to a life alone?

Luke & Daisy's story is everything you'd expect from a Stephanie St. Klaire romcom suspense, it had all the usual character sass, awesome humor - REALLY great laugh out loud humor - and sexy badassery that you could hope for from the O'Reilly brothers, and then you get that serious knock-the-air-outta-you punch to the gut that you know is coming, or at least hope it will, eventually. But then it doesn't, but you're not left dissatisfied, it is still incredibly the sweet, sexy, funny HEA you have come to know & love. But come on... this is a Stephanie St. Klaire story, surely your knees will be knocked out from under you at some point! Right? This is definitely a "wait for it" story that took my breath away & had me crying for the most unexpected reason. No spoilers here, you will have to read it for yourself to see if you feel the same way! True to Stephanie's books, the character development gets richer with every one, and the stories themselves not only hold true to each character, but their depth does not leave you wanting. Another spectacular addition to my collection of St. Klaire novels!!

I have loved each one of the books in this series. The author gives you an action pack read with humor, romance, sorrow, pain, longing, suspense, needs and some very passionate scenes, with delightful twists and turns you are going to love. I enjoyed getting to know the characters watching them going through the paces with deep emotions. The author gives you strong women who support their men and those men know how to keep them safe protecting them at each turn. I had some smiles and some out loud moments and long with some holding on to the edge waiting to see what happens next. It is a series but this is a standalone read, once you read it you will want to read the rest of the series. Daisy was in the wrong place and the wrong time she witnesses a murder. She is now in hiding under Luke’s protection. She is easy to like with her spunky witty ways, Luke will do anything to keep her safe. As he gets to know her he finds she is all he ever wanted but feels he doesn’t deserve her. What is there not to love about Luke, he is military and as we know they protect those they love and care about. He is very alpha and truly a wonderful character. I fell so in love with him. I loved the twists and turns, it is very intriguing with great characters, a lot of ribbing and teasing. There is action, thrills, as few heart stopping moments. It was great to see past characters and what was new in their lives. The author grabbed my attention from the first page until the end. The romance is well built as well as the plot. I totally loved this from start to finish.

I fell in love with Ms. St. Klaire’s novels with her Mackenzie Ridge series. With Luke, the third installment in her new series, Brother’s Keeper, she’s proven why she is still one of my favorite authors. The story of Luke and Daisy is full of action packed thrills and heart stopping drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first page! As if that weren’t enough the beautiful love story unfolding as well gave me all the FEELS! If you are looking for a new series to read look no further and make sure you pick up her first two books of the series as well. You will be so happy you did! Can’t wait for more from this author!!!!!!

Stephanie St. Klaire has given us another winner! This is the 3rd book in her Brother's Keeper series (though they can be read as stand alone books). I was hooked from the beginning. There were so many twists & turns and surprises along the way. Luke O'Reilly doesn't do love or relationships. But he loves his family & as a former military man he is all about protecting others. He tends to keep himself closed off emotionally but takes his job & tasks seriously. Daisy was in the wrong place at the wrong time & witnessed a murder. Luckily for her U.S. Attorney Carter Landry was there along with some Brother's Keeper staff, they were able to get Daisy out of the place, alive. They took her to Brother's Keeper for safety and even though it was hard for Daisy at first-to her it was like prison as she couldn't leave-she & Luke eventually grew closer. There were parts in the book where I laughed out loud, that were hilarious. I can't wait til the next book in the series.

Luke is the third book in the Brother's Keeper series, and this series just keeps getting better. The O'Reilly gang is back and this time it is Luke O'Reilly who is bought to his knees by a woman named Daisy. Luke has issues with the things he has done in his past, he feels like he is damaged goods, but that doesn't stop him from wanting a future. This book is fast paced, steamy, loaded with angst, and lots of twist and turns. It grabs the reader from the first page and doesn't let go until the end. Cannot wait for more in this series. Five stars for this one because "sometimes the wrong thing is the right thing".

Luke is sort of a mash-up story of a broken hero who feels unworthy of love, and a bodyguard romance. You see, Luke has been tasked with Daisy’s safety. After she witnesses the murder of a US Senator, she becomes target #1 for the bad guys. The only problem is, no one knows who the bad guys actually are. When you can’t trust your own government, who do you turn to? Luckily for Daisy, the team who saved her knows just the group, and man, for the job. While this is the third in a series, I didn’t have a hard time catching up. You get a sense that each of the brothers have their own specialty. Obviously, Luke is known for his mercenary skills. Which is why he is tasked with keeping Daisy safe. You’d think it would be easy for the poor guy, but man was Daisy hell-bent on getting captured and tortured. I mean, I don’t know about you but if I just witnessed a Senator getting murdered, was whisked away to a secure location, and all I was asked was to use the building facilities and not leave the sanctuary of said building… I’d comply. Not Daisy, though. She’d go gallivanting around to thrift stores and karaoke bars out in town, completely oblivious to the peril she was in. Poor Luke was always on the verge of a heart attack with her. To say I wasn’t on Daisy’s side would be putting it mildly. I just felt like she didn’t take the situation seriously and was so quick to jump to conclusions and become emotional… when her life was on the line. Luke was a fun story to read. The majority of it took place in their building, so there wasn’t a whole lot of adventure. I also never fully connected with the characters for some reason. I just felt like I never fully got to know them inside and out and was only presented with the basics. Even though I found Daisy’s character a bit irrational at times, it was hard not to fall in love with Luke and the gang.

Humorous, suspenseful, and romantic! In this latest novel by St. Klaire, Brother’s Keeper III: Luke, the gregarious O’Reilly gang is back, and this time the scarred, ruggedly-handsome Luke may find that defending the sweet, fun-loving Daisy from the ruthless killers hunting her down is easier than protecting his heart from falling in love. The writing is witty and tight. The characters are intelligent, strong, and resourceful. And the plot is a twisty, engaging mix of greed, corruption, friendship, politics, family, military operations, violence, smoking chemistry, smoldering tension, sexy times, and murder. Brother’s Keeper III: Luke is the third title in the Brother’s Keeper series, and if you ask me it just keeps getting better and better. It’s steamy, fast-paced, and exciting and has everything you look for in romantic suspense novel and more.

Daisy is in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees something she shouldn’t. When Luke is charged with her safety he is not happy. But can he come to terms with the fact that he is good enough for her. A great entertaining read with plenty of twists and turns

Great read. You have a hero who is a lost soul and who doesn't know what to do with his life and add in a lot of action and suspense and you have a great story.

Let Luke and Daisy capture your heart! I adore this series! I found her with the last book Liam. I fell in love with this family and Luke is no different! Daisy and Luke will capture your heart from page 1. These characters are exceptionally well developed and this storyline just wraps around you. I loved revisiting the family. Grab this book now! Fall in love with this series! Another job well done!

Luke left the military not because he wanted to but because of an injury. All he has ever wanted to do was protect and serve and although being part of the family security business helps he is not finding it enough as he tries to adjust to civilian life. When Daisy is in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses a crime she is in serious danger as some very powerful and influential people are after her. She is sent to the O’Reilly family to keep her safe and Luke becomes her protector. They were like night and day but there was no denying the attraction between them and Luke will do whatever is necessary to keep her safe. This story leads you on an adventure filled with suspense, twists, emotion but most importantly it allows two people to find what they have always been looking for even if it starts under less than ideal circumstances.

Stephanie St. Klaire continues to capture my heart in Luke, the third book in her Brother's Keeper series. From the very start she has me invested and I have to know what is going to happen next. I love how she intricately weaves multiple story lines through one complete story. Not only did I fall hard for Luke, but I want to be a part of the entire O'Reilly family as well. Luke and Daisy are thrown together in unusual circumstance after she was in the wrong place at the right time. His need to protect her keeps him at a distance but the combustible chemistry between them cannot be denied for long. I love the entire world Stephanie has created in this story and I completely devoured this story. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!

Luke's story is number three in the Brother's Keeper series and another 5-star read by this amazing author. Love reading about the O'Reilly brothers and their adventures. This is a well written story with well developed characters and it's full of mystery, suspense, danger, angst, humor, a great storyline, romance and twists that kept me turning the pages. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

SSK is one of my favorite authors and The Brothers Keeper series is at the top of my favorite series list. Luke and Daisy are amazing characters and their story is awe-inspiring. He is just so broken and damaged and Daisy is so kind and pure. You wouldn't actually see them together, but Mrs. St. Klaire brings their love story to life and oh what a story. Look forward to action, suspense, and romance

Wow! 4.5 Stars. Stephanie St. Klaire has just introduced me to one of the most amazing fictional families. The O’Reilly Family is over-the-top in all the best ways and the scenes with all of the brothers together had me splitting my sides with laughter (especially the scene in the tattoo shop). Luke seemed to be the most brooding of the brothers, with a past that shadowed his present and future. Then in came Daisy, evoking emotions and responses that turned his whole world upside down. I loved the way Daisy easily carved her own place within the O’Reilly family, quickly ensuring she would be more than a job to them all. There were a few times when Daisy’s decisions frustrated me, but shortly thereafter she would do something to make me love her again. I am in love with the world Stephanie St James has created and look forward to going back again and again.

5 Forever Stars Stephanie St. Klaire has done it again. Her writing gets better and better with every single book she brings us and Brother’s Keeper: Luke is no exception. Luke O’Reilly is the epitome of a broken man who feels he doesn’t deserve anything good in is life. He has seen bad things and has done even worse, and even though two of his brothers have found love and families of their own, he still feels he is undeserving. Tasked with keeping their newest job safe, Luke can’t take his eyes off the beautiful woman now in his care. After witnessing the murder of a US Senator, Daisy is swept into the protective custody of Brother’s Keeper and finds herself infatuated with her new protector. These two have some major chemistry going on and when they finally give in it is hot hot hot! I always love watching these big bad tough men getting brought to their knees by the most unsuspecting strong women. St. Klaire proves once again why she is my favorite go to for romantic suspense. From page one she keeps you on the edge of your seat. This story is so chock full of action, suspense, humor, family and last, but not least, lots of love. You can’t help but be sucked into this world she has created and wonder what it would be like to live in it. I really need someone to turn Brother’s Keeper and the McKenzie Ridge series into either a movie, or a TV show, pronto! Angela - Alphas Do It Better Book Blog

We met the O'Reilly boys in McKenzie and had to know more. From the opening events with Daisy, I was on the edge of my seat! I wanted to smack Luke a little in the beginning because he was being hard headed and stubborn, but he came around and I fell in love with the big lovable grunter!
KGraceie More than 1 year ago
I LOVE this series as much as I do McKenzie Ridge! Stephanie St Klaire has a fantastic writing style. She mixes the right amount of romance, suspense and love into her stories. Daisy is the perfect match for Luke. I hope we get to share in more of their story I'm looking forward to the next one!

...and another great book from author Stephanie St. Klaire! Luke is a mess. He doesn't think he deserves a future. He doesn't think he deserves love. He doesn't think he's worthy of anything. His past deeds, while in the armed services, makes him feel damaged. He doesn't do relationships until he sees Daisy. Daisy is sweet. She isn't interested in settling down. She just wants to roll along helping her friend with her catering business, sing at some of the events, and mind her own business...until a situation beyond her control tears her out of her comfort zone and lands her straight into Luke's sphere of influence. Thus begins the crazy wonderful book, Luke! We've followed the O'Reilly brothers from McKenzie Ridge, back to their base in Portland. Family, integrity, and honor are ingrained in their psyches. When their FBI contact realizes there is a problem with some Washington D.C. lawmakers, he sends witness Daisy, to them. Love, political intrigue, super secret tech stuff, suspense, budding relationships, and emotional healing are all part of this wonderful ride. Readers will reconnect with some of the McKenzie Ridge people and get updated on the O'Reilly brothers significant others. Ms. St. Klaire always adds her own particular brand of 'twist' to the ending of her novels, and this one will keep you on your toes. Then there are tattoos...laugh out loud funny scene.

Luke and Daisy's story was sweet, hot and steamy. Story starts fast paced with Daisy being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Luke starts out as being a jerk and didn't seem like a good match for her, but as with all of her books you see that it was all a cover for someone not wanting to be hurt by love one-click if you want a good story with laughs and love.
