More About the Author

Lora Leigh lives in the rolling hills of Kentucky, often found absorbing the ambience of this peaceful setting. She dreams in bright, vivid images of the characters intent on taking over her writing life, and fights a constant battle to put them on the hard drive of her computer before they can disappear as fast as they appeared.

Lora's family, and her writing life co-exist, if not in harmony, in relative peace with each other. Surrounded by a menagerie of pets, friends, and a teenage son who keeps her quick wit engaged, Lora's life is filled with joys, aided by her fans whose hearts remind her daily why she writes.

But I just don't LIKE this series and I won't be reading any further. I didn't even FINISH this book. The sex was NUCLEAR in hotness, but the storyline made it nasty, dirty, and downright tawdry. I couldn't get into it.

I've got nothing against menage or erotica (hello? I BOUGHT the book right?) but the "If you love me you'll do my brothers and me too" and the "NEVER TELL ME NO! I'll BRUTALLY RAPE YOU if you do!!!" Stuff is just WRONG WRONG WRONG.

And she finally comes to the point where sharing herself with all three is HOT and not that disturbing and what does the author do? "If you LOVE ME you'll have sex with this WOMAN"

At that point I was so DONE. And these boys had some seriously serious psychological problems. They were brutally raped as children by their dad and FORCED TO LIKE IT. Instead of dealing with the trauma of abuse? They allow that trauma to be the reasoning behind their boorish, mean, evil, and downright ILLEGAL behavior towards women.

Not hot. SO not hot.

Please. If you, like me, look for a little "reality" with your fantasy? DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!!!

But if you can take it? If you can separate reality from fantasy? Then you'll LOVE this series.

My problem is: I went to all the trouble to READ the damn reviews and then IGNORED them. HOW SMART WAS THAT?

This was my very first erotica/Lora Leigh experience. (Yeah. I'm bold. I went for the 3-on-1, kinda incest-y one.) And, I'm more than a little grossed out. The sex doesn't bother me. Even the quasi-kinky stuff. The you're-kinda-my-sister-but-not-really stuff doesn't bother me either. I can get my head around that. It's the circumstances surrounding the sex, the weak plots, and the thinner-than-a-cheese-cloth characterization that make me shift into skim mode. Oh, and let's not forget all the TELLING. My nana could probably write a better novel.

Marley went to live with Cade and his two brothers when she was just a kid to escape her sexually abusive step-father. They basically raised her. On almost the very day she turned 18, Cade developed a voracious appetite for her "sex." (Yeah, eww.) What grosses me out is this: this man who supposedly "loves" her is hell-bent on abusing and humiliating her. I want to know if there are women who really find this romantic? At one point, he calls her a very ugly name just after a less than sanitary moment in the barn. I definitely would have channeled Nicole Kidman a la Far and Away and grabbed the nearest pitch fork.

It's entirely possible that I have a very different picture of romance than most readers. But I can enjoy a good bad boy story. Hell, I married a bad boy. But in my mind, the romantic part is when the bad boy discovers a new part of himself when he meets a certain woman. And maybe she does to (enter kinky sex stuff if that's your cup of tea.) None of these characters are transformed. Marley merely does what she has to do to keep Cade's attention. It would be more interesting if he wanted to be with her no matter what, and then she "chose" to fulfill his bizarre sexual leanings. But that's not the case. So...I'm wondering where the choice part comes in?

Ms. Leigh, I love you your books. I own most of them but I have to say "Men of August" is very, very disappointing. I love myself some Alpha Male, this book however, did not contain an Alpha Male. This review is going to contain spoilers so do not read it if you don't want to know. I had so many issues with this book that I do not even know where to begin. I think the storyline and the plot against the brothers are great. As a matter of fact that is the only reason why I intend to finish the series. The sex scenes are hot and if that is what you looking for then this book is for you. But in no way be fooled that this series is a love story. These "August Men", if you will are a bunch of wimps and cowards.

1. They call in a woman to protect them. Come on!
2. Get help, go see a phyciatrist, somebody who can help you with your issues. Hug your brothers once a day to get that connection going. Why do you have to share your wives?
3. True love is making sure your spouse is happy. From what I can see both Marley and Sarah not only has to watch their husband screw their brothers wives, but they stand in line to be killed by a maniac plus they have to accept these men with all their "so called demons.
4. These woman get nothing in return but be humiliated. I cannot understand why Sarah and Marley has no back-bone and why they could not just leave.

These "August men" have done nothing for their woman and gang raping Sarah, yes thats the way I see it is just sick!

Like only a couple of other reviewers, I found this book to go beyond the alpha male/submissive female role. In my opinion, the men bordered on bullying, abusive behaviors. Why would any man force the woman he loved to engage in sex with his brothers? Especially to "prove" that he loved those brothers? I simply do not understand that plot/conflict since I am not the dark of a person. While I have read several of Ms. Leigh's other books, and have enjoyed several, this series left me feeling...less than happy and thankful that I am not that dysfunctional nor spinless.
