Ok were do I begin..... ok its dark and I like it because its something I do not know much of so when I was reading this book it intrigued me how well the fiction fits in to real elements in this story because hey people do live this way and when you have money you can pretty much do what you like and we have seen what people can do with a little power.
In saying that I think thats why I loved the story even more and with the story line of Aimee tying it all together it just fit well and made it work and more inviting for me!
I love the three Strand brothers they are all unique and hot in there own way and in this story Nik the eldest brother takes the center in this brilliant story then there is Caleb that is a high class politician and has a very darkside to him that will just blow your mind as he unravels before your eyes and as I said there are people like this out there and lora's fiction makes for a great story tied in with it all.
Highly recommended read if you want to escape to a world that is dark and dangerous but also beautiful.

I knew from reading the synopsis and teasers that this book was going to be scorching hot but what I didn’t expect was how emotional of a read Branded would be. I loved that this book went places that I did not expect. This is an extremely well written, intriguing, thoughtful and sexy read.

Nik broke my heart. He had lost his family in a car accident years before yet he still carried that pain around with him everyday. He never stopped blaming himself for their deaths. It wasn’t a good way to live but he had become accustomed to hiding behind his shell, that is until the night he met a mysterious woman at a masquerade party and was never the same again. They experience one night of intense passion but never see each other again.

Aimee works for an escort service and does what she has to do to survive. Five years later, in another town, her past catches up with her when Nik, the man whom she shared one scorching night with, rescues her from a possible beating at the hands of her not so nice boyfriend, Caleb. The passion, chemistry and desire are all still there and the couple begin a torrid relationship. There are some red hot, panty melting moments in this book. Aimee and Nik’s chemistry is off the charts. But Aimee’s crazy ex is lingering on the outskirts of their lives, preparing to take what he believes is his. Nik goes into super alpha protective mode and is determined to keep Aimee safe at all cost. Are you breathless yet?

This book is non stop emotion, sex, and drama. As a reader, you can’t help but feel protective of Nik and Aimee. These characters are so well written that they simply pull you into the story and do not let you go.

Branded is what I call a page turner. You cannot put it down. This story is addictive.

I absolutely adored this story and its perfectly imperfect characters.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Branded (Strand Brothers Book 1). This was an amazing and HOT, HOT, HOT read. NIK was a gorgeous and wonderful male lead and I loved the brothers. Lora Ann did a great job with the brothers building a truly believable sibling relationship and I'm very excited this is a trilogy and I get to read more about the other two brothers.

Nik and Aimee meet in the past, during a masquerade ball and then meet again in the present when Nik rescues her from Caleb, a psychotic and powerful Senator. There is instant attraction between Nik and Aimee, neither of them understanding why they are drawn to each other (hint, hint**it has something to do with that ball all those years ago**) The reader gets to watch the main characters sort through their emotions, all the while dealing with the psychotic machinations of Caleb.

Aimee is a well developed female lead who is bold, capable and self sufficient. I LOVE strong female characters! Nik is an Alpha male lead, but also carries his flaws well, making him believable and all the more attractive. I was able to become attached to these characters because they felt real to me.

This novel did have scenes of BDSM and sexual torture (not involving the main couple) and lots of graphic sex. In fact, this is the one reason I did not give this a five star review. I love me some erotic sex in novels, but there was so much sex that I found myself skimming at parts. And my problem with it stemmed from the fact they spent so much time in the beginning saying how they were not going to have sex, how they were going to stay away from each other, then some switch flipped and it was just sex, sex, sex, the story took a back seat to the sex.

However, don't misunderstand my comment as negative.

Branded is sure to be your new obsession. Welcome to Nikko, a strikingly handsome, formidable man who made some poor choices and spent time paying for them. Now he's determined to make up for lost time with his younger brothers by stepping into the role he was born for, leader of the Strand family. Surrounded by wealth and privilege at an exquisite masquerade ball, Nik is suddenly captivated by a guest he's sure isn't on the invitee list. Stirring feelings he thought were long dead, he takes a risk that will change his life in a matter of minutes.

Desperate to make ends meet, Aimee agrees to a one night affair, providing beautiful companionship as an escort. With the promise of complete anonimity thanks to a gorgeous gown and mask, she never expected the wildest chance encounter that only exists in dreams! Whisked quite literally off her stilletos, Aimee and the masked lothario dont even exchange names before consuming each other. As quickly as she came, he was gone. No names. No faces. Not enough!

Five years goes by and yet another chance encounter brings Nik and Aimee face to face. Will the one night of passion that still haunts them both be enough to see through the masks they are still wearing? Can their one electric encounter turn a spark into an inferno?

Senator Caleb Reynolds has it all. Money, power, influence and and insatible thirst for pure evil. Caleb takes what he wants, when he wants, and quite literally burns up everything in his way. His rage and detest of Nikko Strand knows no limit and he will stop at nothing to ruin him. Does poitical office buy him freedom to do as he pleases or will the Strand brothers finally find out what truly lies beneath his carefully constructed fascade?
