The Prodigal by Shauna Allen

~ Five brothers, one family tragedy, untold heartache. ~

I've always been the quiet one. The brother no one noticed.
When my sister disappeared, it was easy to disappear right along with her, losing myself to my own personal hell and hidden pain, unable to face a life that didn't make sense anymore-unable to face a family that no longer felt whole.
I hunted and searched until I found my way out. Driven by my need to understand who or what took my sister from us, I learned all I could about the human brain, becoming an FBI Criminal Behavior Analyst. This is what has led me directly into the path of the monster who might hold the key to our family's greatest pain . . . and straight back to the woman who I thought I'd never see again.
I met Tenley Cooper on a whim. One weekend of freedom. One weekend where I lost the pain that chained me down. One weekend that I lived the sweetest of lies-a lie that has come back to haunt me in the best possible way.
What does it take to bring the prodigal son home?
The truth.
My name is Joshua Creed.
I am The Prodigal.

***Reader note: This is the fourth of a 6-part emotional family saga series. Each story is 100% male first-person point-of-view, and while each full-length novel is guaranteed to have a complete HEA romance, their family mystery remains unsolved until the end of the series.
***Due to profanity, graphic subject matter, and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

4.5 Stars This one was the most emotional for me yet. I had the tears flowing while reading this book because I feel like part of the Creed family. Then we have such sweet and happy moments for Joshua. He's going to get the most unexpected surprise that may just heal his soul, but it's going to be a rough ride to get to that point. The ending o this one gets the Oh My God reaction from me. I can't wait for the next book because this poor family is going to be put the ringer I feel. I can't wait to see what Shauna Allen has in store.

An Emotional Rollercoaster Ride!! Heartbreaking and wonderful, Romantic and sexy is all rolled up in this beautiful story!! While I was reading this I felt every emotion that Josh was going through. The authors words were so poignant and heartfelt that she takes you on this ride of emotions and you become lost to it. I rated this a 5 star read but in truth it should be a 10!!

If I could give this more than 5 star I would. As each book comes out it gets better and better. I devoured this book in one sitting. The heck with housework, dinner, etc I NEEDED to read. This is Joshua story. We have met him in the previous books but still don't know much about him. He is the quiet one, the FBI profiler. When he has a chance to temporarily relocate and meet the monster that could hold the key to Claire's disappearance he takes it. He know it will be difficult but knows his family deserves answers. What he doesn't expect is to see the one women he spent a weekend with right after graduation. Tenley has a big surprise for Joshua. I loved all the books in this series but this one had me biting my nails. I didn't want to read on because I was scared of what was going to happen but had to know. Shauna Allen always writes a story that pulls you in and doesn't let go. I think about the characters long after I have finished. This one had a twist I did not see coming. You will find many answers to Claire's disappearance in this book. Then comes the ending. What the heck!?!?! I can't handle it I need the next book now.

This is the fourth in a 6 part series. Joshua is back home to help the FBI work the case that could possibly involve his sisters disappearance 10 years ago. Joshua and Tenley met right after Joshua graduated college and just before he moved to Virginia to start his career with the FBI. They shared an amazing weekend, and then went their separate ways. Now that Joshua is back and runs into Tenley again, he can't get her out of his head. This is a hard review to write cause there be spoilers aplenty. Great story and amazing cliffhanger!

Tortured family saga that just keeps getting more and more captivating. I couldn't put this one down and read in one sitting.  Joshua is the prodigal son. The one that lives away and stays away from the pain of his missing sister and the family sorrow. But now he's back working on finding answers. And maybe facing his sisters killer. Little did he expect the one woman he can't get out of his head. Six years did nothing to dampen the attraction but big surprises lie in wait for him. Tenley has never forgotten Joshua. Kind of hard to with what he left behind. But she wouldn't change a single thing. Except he's back in Texas. What can she do to fight this all consuming fire between them?!? Nothing. But there's more to consider now than just her heart. And just when things are getting serious is heartbreak coming her way? This is packed full of so much emotion. Answers will be given to mysteries dormant for years. Heartbreak and relief go hand in hand with this continuation and I can't wait for the next one!

Goodness gracious, those Creed boys keep getting hotter and hotter! This is another great addition to this series and I can't wait for more. The story line is intense as you are drawn in from the start. The characters are strong, each dealing with their own issues while trying to find love and happiness. Enjoying this series very much!
