    Honestly, I did not like this book. The back story almost reads like "Legends of the fall". The soul-mate stuff gets to be boring after a while and the biggest problem I have with this romance is that there is no clue whatsoever that the H/H are compatible. No conversation between them is shown and there is no indication whether they are good friends ( which I believe is necessary if you're going to spend the rest of your life with someone). A disappointing book! Honestly, I did not like this book. The back story almost reads like "Legends of the fall".

    I like this one almost as much as the previous book. This one is about Charles and Lanni. They have a rocky relationship, but they do get a happy ending. This one also relsolves the love triangle from the first book. That was a very sad story. Also, there is a wedding in this story.

    Meh, not as good as the first book in the series. This couple (Charles & Lanni) had very little chemistry. Look out, instalove!! I did enjoy the continuing story of Sawyer & Abbey from Brides for Brothers, and also learning more about the family feud between the O’Hallorans and Catherine Harmon Fletcher.

However, as the series continues, we will find out more about Katherine. 2.5 THIS SUMMARY/REVIEW WAS COPIED FROM OTHER SOURCES AND IS USED ONLY AS A REMINDER OF WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT FOR MY PERSONAL INTEREST. ANY PERSONAL NOTATIONS ARE FOR MY RECOLLECTION ONLY Charles doesn’t know what hits him, the moment he lays eyes on Lanni Caldwell, he is smitten. He has never been in love before, and he really does not recognize the feeling. But the feeling of jealousy against the man who is accompanying her, is instantaneous. He wants to be the one walking besides her! Charles just thinks she is his brothers’ assistant, and asks her out into the wilderness with him. There is such an instant connection and attraction between them. But when Catherine’s secret comes out, at his brother’s wedding, and Charles sees how hurt his mother is by this, he doesn’t want to have anything to do with Lanni anymore. Yes, he did tell her he loved her, but his mother’s happiness is more important to him, than his own. Lanni is hurt very much by this, and she doesn’t want to accept it is over between them, but Charles leaves her no choice. Both Lanni and Charles are hurting, and even Lanni’s brother tries to bring them back together. But only his mother can mend the rift between them, as she is the only one who knows what really happened, and why David married her, instead of the girl who was waiting for him back home in Alaska during WWII. I enjoyed this book a lot, the emotions between all the characters just feel so real, it was like witnessing it firsthand. Lanni is 10 years younger than Charles, and he has some trouble with that, but Lanni really has not. When she finally founds out everything about the “feud” between her grandmother and the O’Hallorans she feels that her grandmother is the wronged party, and not the O’Hallorans. So why can’t Charles get over it? They are not their parents or grandparents! Charles is in love for the first time. Thanks to the example of his parents’ disastrous marriage, he never was interested in finding a wife of his own. So when he fell for Lanni, he fell hard and fast. But he loves his mother, and he wants her to be happy, so he thinks he has to give up Lanni, or she will keep reminding his mother of those bad years. Yes, he sure is stubborn.

    The Marriage Risk is book 2 of the Midnight Sons series set in Hard Luck, Alaska in 1995. This book is about Charles, the eldest of the O’Halloran brothers and newcomer Lanni Caldwell.

This book is about Charles, the eldest of the O’Halloran brothers and newcomer Lanni Caldwell. This book had a bit of a Romeo and Juliet vibe because Charles and Lanni’s families have a long standing feud and even though they fell in instant love upon meeting each other, once Charles learned who Lanni’s grandmother was, he determined that they could not have a relationship and they had to determine if it was worth trying to work through. This is a fairly short book, and when I say instalove, I really mean instantly, but we got more of a full story in this book, for these characters, than we did in book 1 for middle O’Halloran brother, Sawyer and his love interest. Since all the groundwork was formed in book 1, it gave us more time to get to know the characters, so I did enjoy that. I also liked that we still saw the couple from book 1 and we watched as their relationship progressed with their wedding and honeymoon. I liked this book more than book 1. I am interested in continuing the series and reading book 3. Overall, I rate this book 3.5 stars but will bump it to 4 stars. The narration is fine. I think I am starting to get used to the narrator after listening to book 1 narrated by him as well.

    So naturally, I was already hooked on this series after reading the first book. I loved Lanni and Charles, but had a hard time believing that an old family feud would cause such problems in their relationship... however, I was able to put my reservations aside and enjoy this book despite my personal opinion on their "issue." As with most of Macomber's series, the town itself and the supporting characters stole my heart, so the central love story is really just an added bonus for me.

    Hardluck, Alaska is a remote town mainly populated by men. When brothers Sawyer and Christian come up with a way to entice women to their community they can't help but pat themselves on the back. Older brother Charles is convinced that the last thing they need is a bunch of single women invading their town. However, in this installment, Charles not only meets his match, but is also given an opportunity to help correct some of the wrongs from the past.

    Good read. Liked the story flow. Liked the characters and reading their individual struggles and how they work through them. Fun reading the back and forth issues between characters and finally realizing it is love. The two family conflict added a second turmoil for the characters. Always a pleasure to read this author. Would recommend this book.

    This one was a little strange reading as a “contemporary” when it was written almost 25 years ago and some important aspects didn’t seem to fit. I still liked it and am looking forward to completing the series.

Fate has Destined these two, who hardly know each other, and have yet to have deep or meaningful conversation of any kind to be soul mates. Misunderstandings occur that could easily be addressed with some conversation in between the kissy-face. The main conflict is based on a family feud going back to grandparents. Unlike Romeo/Juliet, he was not aware she was Juliet from the forbidden family, and she was not aware the families had a conflict. Oh No -- should these Soul Mate InstaLoveBirds give up on the Greatest Love they'll ever experience in their lives because it might make one or two of their parents or grandparents uncomfortable??? Lots of events were brushed over and missed great opportunities to provide some interesting reading, such as when the heroine was out in the wilderness with two small children and had a brush with a bear. The whole incident was summed up in retrospect in about one sentence! Once in a while, I like to read something light and fun, a bit of social commentary, history or geography thrown in, but this series isn't it.
