His name is Rafer Callahan. He was a kid from the wrong side of the tracks who fought through life the only way he knew how: with his fists. But Rafer never meant to bring any harm to Cambria Flannigan, the girl—the lover—whose sister he’d been unable to save…
Cami lost her sister in the brutal murders that rocked her hometown so many years ago. Some still believe that Rafe, along with his friends Logan and Crowe, were involved. But how could Rafe—who haunted her girlish dreams, then her adult fantasies—be a killer? That is the question that keeps her up at night.
Now a prosperous ranch owner, Rafe is trying to build a new legacy for himself. It’s finally time to settle the score with Cami—and make her his. But old wounds open up with a series of new murders…and each of the victims has a connection to Rafe, Logan, and Crowe. With suspicion, fear, and loyalty tearing her apart, Cami is once again at risk of losing her heart—or her life

      It pains me to say this but I have found a Lora Leigh book that I do not absolutely love. It took a while but this is the first book that I have read by Lora that I have not truly enjoyed every minute of it. It is the first in a series so you get a lot of back story, and I felt like you heard about it every chapter. It seemed like all there was in the book  was telling of back story, sex, more people talking about the history of the town and the three men (Rafe, Logan and Crowe) then more sex. I feel like this story is similar to Lora Leigh's Nauti series, where there are cousins that are outcasts of the town and there is a deep dark family secret. I enjoyed the Nauti series much more. On the plus side I did enjoy Rafe, he was a strong alpha male, just the way I like them. Cami I felt sorry for her, she has had a rough life but I wanted her to grow a backbone a little sooner than she did. As this is the first in the series I am hoping that the next book will be a little better as I do tend to like the second books in series more than the first. If you are a first time reader of Lora Leigh I suggest starting with one of her other series as this one I am sorry to say is not her best work.

  1. Thanks for a great review! I haven't read this author yet and I have read such mixed reviews. This is one author that I might wait and see if I can get at the used bookstore.

    1. I have loved her other books, this one just disappointed me. I actually got this one at my local used bookstore. Thanks for stopping by

  2. *gasp* I have yet to read a Lora Leigh book that I didn't like, I may need to be cautious with this one and get it used instead of full price. Thanks for the review
