I've adored each of the books in The Dogfather series so far. I honestly love each family member in the Kilcannon clan, but have extra special love for the Dogfather, Daniel. I love how he is set on finding mates for each of his children and was so glad to get Liam's story with Leader of the Pack. I loved every single thing about Leader of the Pack. I loved that Liam is so much like his dad that he knew as soon as he met Andi three years ago; she was the woman for him. Andi and Liam had the best chemistry and I loved that Liam really had waited around for Andi. While the reason they started seeing each other again wasn't ideal, her house being broken into and needing protection, I loved that Liam stepped up in every way possible. He was so sweet to teach Andi's son Christian how to handle Jag, the guard dog Liam brings to help keep both Andi and Christian safe. I have to say I adored watching Christian come out of his shell the more time he trained with and was around Jag. I somewhat understood Andi's hesitancy to have a man in her life after her ex had left her life and his loss had been so huge for their son Christian. However, I also knew she was so attracted to Liam and I didn't get her not being happy just to protect her son. I love that Liam connected so well with Christian through Jag and loved watching Liam, Andi, and Christian move towards being a real family. I also loved seeing Liam and Andi connecting on every level and becoming a real couple. Seriously Liam and his love for Andi and Christian was so freaking sexy. There were several twists and turns along the way in Leader of the Pack. Some I saw coming, others I didn't. I loved how protective Liam was of both Andi and Christian. I also loved that Christian had Jag to protect him at all times. I felt so many emotions along with the characters as I read Leader of the Pack and I loved every single minute of the story. Leader of the Pack is another winner in the Dogfather series from Roxanne St. Claire. The romance between Andi and Liam was beautiful to see grow into a real relationship. I also loved watching Andi, Christian, and Liam become a real family. I also loved all the time we got to spend with the Kilcannon clan. I fall more and more in love with this family with each new book in the series. Ms. St. Claire once again gives her readers an amazing romance that will keep her readers coming back for more. Rating: 5 Stars (A+)
Roxanne St. Claire has done it again! I LOVE the Leader of the Pack! It might truly be my favorite book! It is such a poignant and bittersweet love story. I love a great love story. I love the Kilcannon family and Bitter Bark, NC. Leader of the Pack is Liam Kilcannon's story, the oldest Kilcannon, at almost forty years old, he is the leader of the pack. Liam is a former Marine, and current K-9 trainer at Waterford. Liam has been in love with Andrea (Andi) Rivers from the moment he saw her and dated her three years ago. At the time the father of Andi's young son, Christian, wanted to be part of his life. And I felt that it was only right to give a life with Jefferson (Jeff) Scott a chance. One year later, Jeff dies in a car accident and Andi decides to on,y be 100% committed to raising her son as a single mother. Fast forward two years, Jeff's mother, Nadine died and left Christian a trust fund worth six million dollars. Jeff's sister, Nora is going to battle Andi for full custody of Christian claiming she is an unfit mother, so she can control the trust fund. Daniel Kilcannon, "The Dogfather" comes up with a solution, Andi can marry Liam, whom he has not so secretly been trying to get together. Once the threat of the custody battle has been resolved, Andi and Liam can have their marriage annulled. The surprise wedding can take place after the engagement party for Jessie and Garrett and Chloe and Shane. Just when I thought that Andi and Liam would live happily ever after with Christian and Jag, the German Shepherd,Rocki throws in a surprise major plot twist. Who doesn't love a surprise plot twist! The plot twist gets resolved, and they get their happily ever after. Cannot wait to read Molly's story next!
I loved Leader of the Pack by Roxanne St.Claire even though it tugged at my heartstrings. Again a perfect title for this wonderful and emotional story, but it doesn’t quite describe what you might expect. This is the third book in her Dogfather series but each book is a stand long read. This is Liam Kilcannon and Andi Rivers’ story. Liam is the oldest, a former marine, where he trained dogs and he now continues training K-9 dogs. Andi Rivers is an architect and single mom who is hesitant to open her heart to a man. However, when Andi needs help protecting her son the Kilcannon family jumps at the chance to help them. Yet, Andi is very unsure of opening her heart to Liam and falling in love while Liam is afraid to let himself slide down the Andi Rivers Slippery Slope to Misery again. These two need to learn to trust and love each other. I loved Andi’s son, Christian, a mini-Liam, shy, quiet and inquisitive. I truly loved reading this book. Ms. St. Claire is a wonderful story teller and she seems to always draw me into her books, making me forget the world around me. I highly recommend this book to other readers and am looking forward to the next entry in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
