Overview

LukeThe Callahan Brothers by Emily March

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?

Hot guys - rock stars, action, suspense, romance. Loved all the family drama, friends, neighbors in Brazos Bend.

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!

Luke and Maddie's story was fun, passionate, enough sass to make you smile but not so much as to roll your eyes. The action was not so farfetched as to make you give up but more than you'd expect to be real. A good read

I was given the opportunity of listening to the audiobook version of this story, and couldn’t wait to start it. Why? Because, whether you are a long time fan of Ms March’s , or new to her stories, her books are always engaging. This one was no different. The beginning of this series lets us know that four brothers, who were considered the Bad Boys of Brazos Bend, left the town without looking back. Each one has his reasons, the main one being their father. The symbolism of their names, Luke, Matthew, Mark and John doesn’t go unnoticed. This one centers around Luke . He is an ex-DEA agent whose partner was killed and he feels responsible for that death. He now lives on a boat he has restored , with a dog that adopted him. On board he finds a stowaway, Maddie Kincaid. She has come searching for Luke’s partner. She needs help since she is possession of some illegal items and people are after her. Instead, Maddie ends up finding Luke. Or was that done on purpose by someone else? Suffice it’s to say , this story has a well developed plot filled with suspense, murderers, drugs, and who done it. But there is more to the story than that. It’s a story about parents expectations and actions. About how circumstances in our youth affects us as adults. About how guilt can hinder us and might cause us to give up happiness. That even though our hearts might get hurt, we should not give up on love. It’s a story about family, forgiveness , hope and love. Looking forward to the next Callahan brother’s story. Kudos to Ms March for another winner. I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
