This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
~ 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?
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.
This series keeps getting better and better.
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.
An Emotional Rollercoaster!!
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!!
