The Rainmaker by Shauna Allen

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

The world callously moved on when my sister disappeared without a trace ten years ago.
My life-my family's lives-froze in grief that torturous summer day.
My soul crumbled completely, a few years later, when I buried my son.
I survive the agony by hiding it neatly beneath my businessman façade and all the accolades that money can buy.
But Harper Devlin is my Achilles heel. The one who got away . . . with my broken heart.
Now she's back and as irresistible as ever.
I shouldn't want her. I can't have her. But I need her.
And she needs me. I may have to conceal all my wounds just to survive being around her again, but I'm willing to do it to help her build her dreams and her business. It's what I do. It's what I know. I'm damn good at it.
My name is Levi Creed.
I am the Rainmaker.

***Due to profanity and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

It is sad, emotional, fun, loving read, filled with normal day to day life of losing one you love and trying to move on. The not knowing is killing this family but somehow someway they find the strength to move on never forgetting The Dove that touched them so deep in her short life. They spend years wondering, looking for answers but never getting them. Each family member is going through their own hell but still moves on with their day to day life. Here you will read Levi’s story he has had his own pain and loss besides losing his baby sister he lost his one true love, marrying another only to lose his son, with nothing there to hold the marriage together he lost his wife. Now years later his past meets his future bring back the one woman he truly loved. His past has changed him into a man so far from the easy going lucky man he used to be. What you see now is a man driven to make money, a mover, shaker in the business world, never looking back the pain is still too real. With Harper back in his life he is going to have to face the demons from his past. What a great addition to this series, the author had me in her palm with the first book and this one was no different. Clair is never far away as we get closer to the truth of what happened to her it becomes very emotional and heartbreaking leaving us with more questions and few answers. I and the family feel that she is dead but there is still hope that she may be alive out there in this crazy world. The author gives us drama that held my attention, making me want to read The Dove waiting to know what happened, but this is Levi’s story which holds its own interest and entertainment. Here we see a broken man watching one of his brothers finding true happiness and another family member having a child which brings back memories he has been trying to outrun. At the same time he must face how things ended with Harper and bring closure to that part of his life. Levi is strong, but weak, he is man with dreams but has lost so many. He is a ticking time bomb ready to blow his top, he has so much pain pinned up inside which shows just how strong he really is that he hasn’t let go. Harper is a caring loving woman who knows what she wants but knows how to give the space Levi needs. As their past come to light your heart breaks for each of them. There are some very emotional scenes that will bring tears to your eyes. I wanted so bad to give them both support, grabbing them holding them tight. It isn’t all sad the author gives you lots of laughs in a story that is very entertaining and holds your attention from start to finish. I just love the energy Harper has she is so full of life making those around her smile and laugh. She has known true pain and sorrow but has grown to be an amazing woman. Between these pages you will find a family filled with love, and pain that supports the other but gives them space as well as they go through what no family should. Bottom line this is a series you don’t want to miss filled with so much it will break your heart, but they will make you laugh, chuckle and want to cry for all they have gone through. They are strong, demanding but gentle and caring. It is a story that will stay with you as you live their journey seeking answers to the unknown and finding a reason to live a life without their dearly beloved sister. It is a story filled with hot steamy passion, the love scenes are wonderful. You are going to need to things why reading this book tissues and a f

Levi Creed has suffered a lot of loss in his life. His kid sister disappeared 10 years ago and his family still does not have answers as to what happened to her. While he was in college, he met the love of his life, Harper Devlin. The only problem was when he had to give her up when his ex called to say she was pregnant. He did the "right" thing and married her. Sadly, his young son died tragically and then his marriage fell apart shortly after that. Now Harper is back in his life and he needs to find a way to help her with getting her business plan in order while keeping his heart intact. I loved reading this book. This family just sucks you into their world. You can feel their pain and their hope. I cannot wait to read the rest of the books. I need to know how this story ends. I ended this book yelling NO!!!!!!! so I guess that shows how great this author is at cliffhangers!

This series!!!!!!!!!! Oh my! The feels & the struggles are amazing. I loved the second story in the Family Creed series. Harper is just the balm that Levi's tortured soul needs! The family drama that is intertwined throughout the series is so emotional. It makes your heart race & your heart break all at once. I am looking forward to the rest of the series......esp to know how the family drama concludes.

This is the second book in the series and it's a good one! It's a second chance for Levi and Harper. Levi has dealt with enough heartache to last a lifetime, but is he willing to risk the chance of more to have the future he's always wanted with Harper. I really liked Harper. I like the light she brings in Levi's life especially because sure does need it. This one pulls at the heart because we get a few more clues to the family tragedy. I feel like a part of the family and my hearts breaks right along with them. I can't wait for the next book!

This is the second in a 6 part series. The Creeds are back and this time Levi and Harper are highlighted. Their attraction is explosive, and has been since they met in college. Even though Levi took the cowards way out with Harper when he found out that his ex was pregnant, who he then married despite being in love with Harper, she is still willing to give him another chance. Levi is however still working out some of his own demons, his sisters disappearance, and the death of his infant son are at the top of the list. Great story and fantastic cliffhanger!

This second chance romance hit all the feels. As Levi and Harper meet up again they both deal with heartache and life. The book hits deep and drags out the tears, the laughs and the happy clapping. Levi's past is a tough one to read and may be too much of a trigger for some. I cursed Shauna a bit for making me cry. The love between Harper and Levi is very evident to everyone but Levi Their journey back to each other is full of bumps in the road but it leaves you with a good feeling I didn't feel as much connection to Claire's disappearance mystery as I did in Executioner but I'm hooked to see what happened to their baby sister.

The emotion portrayed in this family saga is so raw and real. I could feel their individual pain, their love and compassion. Heart wrenching and hope instilling, this family individually and together face incredible odds. Can they find themselves through all the terror and turmoil to find their own happy ending? Levi has lost more than any man should have to. His sister, his true love, his son. But Harper is back. And just as sexy and beautiful inside and out as she ever was. He has to find a way to get close again after the way he left her. Harper can't believe it when she sees Levi again. He's all she has ever loved. And that apparently hasn't changed. Neither has their chemistry. Just as explosive as ever. But can she crack the walls he has so carefully erected around his heart? Their second chance together proves to be full of emotion. Passion, humor, compassion and love. But with his family facing new and uncertain findings about his baby sister and an unexpected development with Harper can Levi step up and be the man Harper deserves or will he once again break her heart? Can't wait to find out what happens next with this family!

The Rainmaker pulled me in from the first page, and kept me glued until the last. Levi and Harper have each faced heartache in their past, and are dealing with their lives in their own ways. Levi is very successful in his career, but keeps all his emotions bottled up inside. Levi and Harper were together years ago and have recently reconnected. The Creed Brothers series is riveting and emotional on a higher level, and just keeps getting better. I have to know what happens, and I can't wait for the next book. I highly recommend everyone reads this series by the incredibly talented author Shauna Allen!

Phenomenal. The Creed family is an amazing saga crafted by Shauna Allen. Truly something that has pulled me in so that I want to be part of their world. At the same time, I am experiencing their lives as if I could be right there with them, feeling every high and low. Levi, he has worked very hard to be the Rainmaker, priding himself on his business acumen and ability to close the deal. As with all the family members, losing Claire shook his foundation but it wasn’t until another tragedy hit that he erected impenetrable walls to protect his heart. When Harper, the girl that got away in college, reappears in his life, he finds some of those feelings trying to push through the walls. What a beautiful journey for a second chance romance that also delivers the struggles of overcoming tragedy and allowing yourself to be open to love and heartbreak again.

Levi hides from his grief by working. When his mom and day needs him he packs up his computer and stays closer to them temporarily. When he goes to a natural food story with his brother he comes face to face with this past. Harper is struggling with business but failure is not an option. When Levi offers his business services can they deny the feelings they had for each other in the past. Levi broke Harpers heart when he left her with no explanation. When she finds out can she forgive him. Harper is the type of person who has a heart of gold. When she wants to renew their relationship she goes all in and doesn't give Levi a chance to stay no. She will help him heal. With the agony of losing his sister and his son this was an emotional read. You can feel the pain radiate off of Levi. He doesn't think he deserves happiness but throughout the story Harper shows him he does. You see the other Creed brothers throughout the story also. I loved how Harper and Levi where there for Genevieve through a tough time. I will say that the dream towards the end gave me goosebumps. The epilogue was epic. I can't wait to see what happens with their sister's case. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book.

WOW!! WARNING: Have a box of tissues by your side while reading! This story is heartbreaking while also being a beautiful romance. Levi is a tortured soul needing to let go and live life again and Harper is the woman that never gave up on him. My feelings were all over the place with this story, I laugh, I sighed and I cried!! I crawled nto this story and didn't want to leave

This second book in the Family Creed series is just as amazing as the first one was. It's Levi Creed's story. He lost love of his life when he needed to do what was right, or at least that's what he thought at the time. Later he regretted his decision but what was done was done. Harper was out of his life, his son dead, and his marriage in shambles. His family is still struggling with the loss of his baby sister after all these years. Not knowing what happened to her is killing them. But they are stronger together and somehow they will face whatever happens. When Levi comes home because of his father's health and see Harper again he realizes that he never got over her. He still wants her as much as he ever did. But will she give him a second chance? Harper was hurt when Levi left without backward glance but now he is back in her life. It's hard for her to think of him as 'just friend', he can never be that for her. Because she is still a little in love with him. Soon they stop trying to stay away. This time it might just work between them. It's a touching, heartbreaking, and very romantic story. I love all of Creed brothers and can't wait to read more about the family.
