Review: 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 facade 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.

***Reader note: This is the second 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 and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

5-Stars Review

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 realises 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.
