    Source: LibraryLOVED IT!!!Sawyer - 4 StarsWhile reading this I couldn't help but felt like I read half of it already, turns out I did! I'm not sure when but awhile ago I actually read just more than half of this story. I must have got distracted with another book, it's the only thing I can think of as to why I didn't finish this the first time I read it! I love Sawyer, I love how protective he was over Honey. -------------------Morgan - 4.5 StarsOh Morgan, he's just...UGH! GIMME ME!!!!

    Sawyer/Morgan by Lori FosterActual rating: 1.5 starts So this is an anthology of the first two books in the Buckhorn brothers series by Lori Foster. I’ve read a few other books by her. I don’t know if these were super early in her career or what, but these read as incredibly dated. I know romance novels are not always the best at gender roles and sexist stereotypes, but man, the casual sexism was oozing through the pages in these two: His overwhelming masculinity made her uneasy, whereas Sawyer’s calm, controlled brand of machismo offered comfort and patience and rock-steady security, which she couldn’t help but respond to as a woman. She could feel his heat, breathe his scent, unique above and beyond the other brothers, who each pulsed with raw vitality. But her awareness, her female sensitivity, was attuned to Sawyer alone. After all the condemnation she’d received from men of late, his open admiration was a balm, whether she admitted to liking it or not. So many feelings swamped her at once, it was difficult to sort them out. In the past, every relationship she’d shared had started because she wanted someone to call her own, because she’d believed women were supposed to share their lives with men.Gross. Safety Stats:(view spoiler)[Ages: Sawyer is 36, Honey is 25. (The age difference made me uncomfortable.) Morgan is 34, I can’t remember how old Misty is. Probably somewhere around Honey’s age.Cheating: No.OM/OW: No, but both Sawyer and Morgan are former manwhores with basically women salivating at the gate for the chance to get in their pants.Separation? No, neither couple is separated.Triggers: Umm, sexist stereotypes? Lots of machismo? Otherwise nothing.HEA? Yes. (hide spoiler)]

    This is Books 1 & 2 of the Buckhorn Brothers series all in one book.Briefly (since this is a super old book), these 4 brothers live together in a somehow not creepy way. Sawyer and Morgan (heroes of Books 1 & 2 respectively) are manly men doing manly men things. Sawyer is the town doc and Morgan is town Sheriff. Magically, they're straight, single (of course they are) and mind-blowingly hot (of course they are). They're not so good with the talky-talk word things (why would they be?). Okay, I'm being a little overly snarky. The boys were fine. They were responsible for a majority of the laughs in this book and if it weren't for the laughs, this wouldn't have been a decent read.The heroines in these novels almost ruined the book for me. In Sawyer's book, the heroine, Honey Malone (are you shitting me) is Too Stupid To Live. Only someone terminally stupid would run out into the night, barely clothed, when the hero and his sheriff brother are trying to apprehend someone who is breaking in to their barn. "I just couldn't let you do this alone since it's all my fault" Right, whatever you do, don't let the men be men. Besides, maybe you can help by flopping your boobs all over the place and acting like you didn't notice you weren't wearing a bra. Oh wait, I see you have that covered. Thanks, Honey...!Morgan goes for Honey's sister, Misty. Misty Malone that is. Again, you have to be effing kidding me with these names. Misty is slightly less stupid than Honey but only because Misty's stupidity happened before the book begins. Constantly needing reassurance that she's hot when she's obviously a 10 made me not really love her. I also felt like I could have a better conversation with a brick wall as I was hitting my head against it. But by this point, I was already over the Malone sisters, so I could be way off here. Sure, the heroines were vapid and moronic. The heroes were so overly full of testosterone that I'm surprised the family goat didn't sleep with a lock on the door. If I had to read one more word about how hairy someone's arm or hand was, I was going to barf. Got it... hairy = manly. Check and double check. Having said that, am I going to continue this series? Does a bear shit in the woods? Do the Malone girls have more tits than brains? The answer to both is hell yes! Look, Lori Foster can do no wrong in my book. The characters can be as shit as they wanna be but I love this author's writing so much that I really don't care! Besides, this series started in 2000. That's 15 years ago!! On the up side, with Lori Foster, the Sexy Time is always hot and there's always a couple of laughs to be had. Don't believe me? Go check out Lori Foster's Ultimate series. Talk about Yowza! Until she comes out with more of those, I'll console myself with her backlist.

    This book comprised two books in one. The first book, Sawyer, I really liked. I would give it 4 out of 5 stars. The second book, Morgan, was terrible. Morgan was a horrible person. He bullied Misty, the love interest, the whole book, and not in a fun playful way. Misty was portrayed as a weak female. Morgan was rude to Misty and made her feel bad about spending time with her sister. He bullied her to make her leave his family's house. He bullied her to tell him her secrets. Then when she was leaving the next morning (because he demanded she leave), he made it so her car wouldn't start, woke up the family knowing they wouldn't want her to leave and then told everyone one of her secrets!!! Morgan made it seem like he was allowed to tell and Misty just pretty much shruuged it off. Morgan was a possesive, demanding ASS! The author even had Misty apologizing for god knows what, but Morgan didn't have to apologize for his behavior at all. I did NOT like the second book!Also, it would be nice if a man in his mid to upper 30's could find a significant other in her 30's or 40's instead of early 20's! Just saying!

    I read the Buckhorn brother's books years ago when they were first released. In fact they were some of the first ever romance novels I read and I still remember their bright red covers - they were released under the UK 'Sensual Romance' category.When I saw that they had been re-released I thought I would give them a go...But I don't remember them being so damn wholesome.I'm not talking heat level here, 'cause the books are actually quite steamy, but in the 'could these men be any more chivalrous' way!Putting that to one side, these two stories are sweet, funny, steamy, and above all charming. Morgan's story is the better of the two, in my opinion.My only complaint about these stories is that the author has created two fantastically feisty heroines but it is ruined by the fact that she has also made them total damsels in distress.A good read, and certainly nice to revisit these books I read as a teenager!Originally posted at http://everyday-is-the-same.blogspot....

    I picked up Sawyer and Morgan this weekend...heart still beating madly for Morgan. Gosh, I just love a big man!All the guys are wonderful...Honey was a bit of a stretch for me at first. I found her lack of gratefulness annoying, but when she was concerned for Casey about the sunburn...ya, she won me over there. Misty, aka Malone, was funny and silly...her complete lack of male awareness had me laughing and Morgan fuming. Morgan will make such a great dad...his compassion, love, and total devotion was apparent in everything he did...Lovers him.Note: to my GR friends, this is a true tandem set of love stories. Not romantica here...just sweet lovin's and wonderful, kind, hunky men.

    Since I've been having so much fun with Lori Foster's Ultimate series, I thought it was time I checked out some more of her books. And we all know how much I love romance countrified. Even better, this one was on Overdrive at my local library and is two books in one, so there was no way I was going to pass it up!The first story is Sawyer's. The town doctor and one of several brothers who live together in their late parents' old farmhouse, Sawyer's a single dad of a teenage son, and while he certainly isn't hurting for female attention, he's not exactly looking for a wife. But then Honey Malone crashes through his freshly mended fence, lands her car in the water, and refuses to go to a hospital. Before she knows it, she finds herself a guest in Sawyer's house, drowning in testosterone, and trying to trying to stay one step ahead of whoever's been trying to kill her.I absolutely loved the backstory of Sawyer and his son, and I'm pretty sure I was in love with the book as soon as their lack of blood relationship was revealed. But even better was the camaraderie of the brothers, the way they egged each other on and behaved exactly as you would expect from a house full of men. The way they took control of Honey's problems would have been annoying as hell — had they not all been so damned charming and sexy!Honey's story is rather complicated, and she's just as in the dark about what's happening as we are. She knows that someone is after her, but for the life of her, she can't imagine why. All she's certain of is that they're dangerous, she has to stay under the radar, and she can't drag these men into the danger she faces. But they're far too chivalrous and protective to let her go it alone, and once they have some idea of what she's up against, they're determined to see her safely through it — especially Sawyer.The romance between these two was sweetly steamy, if that makes sense. There were certainly some bedroom scenes, but they weren't as graphic as I'm used to reading, and I'm not sure if that has more to do with the age of the series or the character of the brothers featured. Either way, it was kind of a nice change from all the stories out there constantly trying to push the envelope by spicing things up just a little too far. Sawyer was certainly all alpha, but he was also a gentleman, and while I wouldn't recommend this book to young teens, I think it's a nice, middle-of-the-road approach to writing sex scenes.The second story in the book is Morgan's. He's all scowl and suspicion in Sawyer's story, though he's not incapable of some comic relief, as was made clear by his walking into the kitchen in the buff when Honey was trying to make her escape. But now that he's met her sister Misty, it's his turn to find romance he wasn't necessarily looking for.Morgan knows the last thing he needs is to have a fling with his brother's sister-in-law, but Misty knocks him on his ass from day one. He tries his damnedest to avoid his attraction to her, with the end result looking like he can't even stand her. And then, of course, it drives him nuts that she's always laughing and happy with everyone else.Misty's got enough problems on her plate without the moody sheriff turning up the heat. She doesn't want to burden her sister with all she's facing, but between finding out she's pregnant, losing her job, and ending up with a criminal record, she's running out of options. Morgan, though, for being such a by-the-book control freak, is a bit of a softie. And once he gets the full story out of Misty, he steps up to make things a little easier for her, giving her a job and a reason to stay around while he unsuccessfully fights his feelings for her.Their romance was quite entertaining to watch, not only because they were clearly made for each other, but also because Morgan was so hilariously lost most of the time. He couldn't stand losing control of himself, and that's the state Misty had him in all the time. But he was also exactly what she needed, someone older and stable and responsible, who wouldn't rush to judgement about her and would give her a shot at something better than the future she thought was waiting for her. Their constant bickering and undeniable attraction to each other made for a fun, steamy read.All in all, Buckhorn Beginnings is a quick, entertaining set of classic romance novel plots. Both the Hudson brothers featured so far are white knights coming to the rescue of damsels in distress, but it plays out in such a way that you can't help but root for them and then laugh when they stumble. Despite some of the heavier subject matter, the stories remain rather lighthearted, revolving around family, loyalty, and quite a bit of humor.

    I grabbed Buckhorn Beginnings on audio a few months back when it was on sale at audible.com and was saving it for a rainy day. So when I was starting to get a little burn out on all the UF books I've been reading and listening to I knew it was time to dust this one off. It was just want I needed. Not one but two sweet and sexy contemporary stories in one audio. Buckhorn Beginnings is my first Lori Foster experience and before I was halfway through it I ran over to audible and grabbed the next audio, Forever Buckhorn. I knew I had to hear the other sexy brothers' stories.Foster knows how to write a sweet, emotional and sexy story. And the fact that the Hudson family has 4 sexy brothers is a real treat. Sawyer-Sawyer's story was a very sweet story about a small town doctor living with his brothers and raising a son. His world gets turned up side down when a pretty little blonde wrecks her car on his property and he takes her in to nurse her back to good health. It was lust at first site for Sawyer but while he takes care of Honey, he starts having feelings for the stranger. Sawyer's story is also as a touch of suspenxe to it as well. Honey is running from something or someone. Sawyer will stop at nothing to found out more about the beautiful blonde that has stole his heart.I can't wait to start the next audio, Forever Buckhorn to find out more about the other brothers, Gabe and Jordan. Morgan-In the second story about Morgan we get to see this hard as nail town sheriff fall in love. And it's a site to see. The bigger and tougher they are, the hard they fall and Morgan is no exception.I knew when we find out in Sawyer's story that Honey had a sister that she would hook up with one of the other Hudson brothers but I was not expecting it to be Morgan. Just like her sister, Misty has a secret when she comes to the Hudson ranch. While Misty is visiting Honey, she finds herself the center of attention among the other Hudson brothers. Everyone but Misty and Morgan know that she is off limits though. See everyone can see the two have a connection even if they don't want to see it.After fighting their attraction to each other, Misty and Morgan start working together in Morgan's sheriff office. Morgan might look and act like a bear, but Misty starts seeing the caring and loving man he is on the inside. One thing leads to another and the two find themselves in love. I can't wait to start the next audio, Forever Buckhorn to find out more about the other brothers, Gabe and Jordan.

    I liked these books. I say books because they were two books (brothers) in one. Even though these were originally published years ago and then republished in 2011 they are still as good as anything I've currently read. There were a couple words that gave me a good chuckle (preppies). Let's go ahead and start with the cover because *wipes drool* that's exactly what caught my attention first. The first & second book in the series focus on the brothers Sawyer & Morgan. I swear the way these men are described ... makes me want to move to Kentucky, and I'm pretty sure that phrase has never been uttered anywhere ever. Sawyer is the single dad who is resolved never to fall in love ... but Honey unexpectedly crashes (literally) into his life. In book two, we're introduced to Morgan, who just wants to take care of everyone... including Honey's sister Misty. These books are sweet and sexy and pretty tame. (i'm reading them each between other books) But definitely worth the read. If you're looking for a sweet love story with sexy men this series is definitely for you.

    Sawyer and Morgan are brothers with a complex and interesting family life. There are multiple reasons why they are so hot and so single with the Malone sisters bust into their lives. There is a lot of slow build-up to a long lasting relationship between Sawyer and Honey. - Who names their children 'honey'? She is supposed to be from a rich influential family (usually educated), but I have a hard time believing that they would name their first daughter with a nickname. -The second story is about Morgan and Misty (Honey's little sister) who comes to town to attend her sister's wedding to Sawyer. She is at the end of her rope and doesn't have anywhere to go, much like Honey in the first book, but she has some health issues as well, don't worry I'm not going to spill any spoilers...This is a contemporary western romance with sensual moments and tasteful love scenes, so if you don't like erotic then this is for you.2 stars

    This is a series written by Lori Foster in 2000 and it does have an older feel to it. The book is actually two novellas about 2 of 4 brothers who live in Buckhorn, Kentucky. The first story is about Sawyer, the oldest, who is a doctor. Honey Watson comes crashing into his life (literally) and he becomes determined to save her from the bad guys in her life. She is a rather difficult character to like but she gets better as the story goes on. The second story is about the second brother Morgan, who is the sheriff in town and a bit of a control freak. He meets up with Honey's sister Missy and she is the one thing he has a hard time controlling. Both stories are sweet and sexy but too short to fully develop the characters, though Foster does a pretty good job. All in all a nice beginning to the series.

    I honestly can't think of anything I'd change about this book. Sawyer was very good. Loved how Honey broke down his barriers. AND..how Honey and Casey clicked. Morgan's story was great. Loved the banter between him and Misty. They were a great pair.I enjoyed how the stories felt complete and not lacking. Often times I find myself flsutered at the end of the stories (when there's more than one in a book) because they feel rushed or incomplete. She did a fabulous job telling the story without cutting corners. I'm very much looking forward to reading about Gabe and Jordan:) Just picked that book up today!

    In true Lori Foster fashion, she has created a dynamic group of characters to fall in love with and a sensational story to captivate readers. I loved Sawyer and Morgan and can't wait to read more about this amazing family from Buckhorn!

    I want to live in Buckhorn! I really enjoyed the first story, "Sawyer." The second, "Morgan," took me a while to get into because he was such a complete ass at first. I'm looking forward to reading about the remaining brothers and Casey.

    I love stories with two connected characters, especially when they are brothers. These two brothers dont know what hit them.First we have Sawyer, the oldest brother who is the only local doctor. He and his son Casey are out working on their fence when a women, Honey runs her car right through the fence and into a lake near their house. Honey and Sawyer are immediately attracted to each other. But Honey even though she is ill and has a concussion is trying her best to leave their home. She is afraid that the trouble that is following her will now follow her rescuer. Read to see how Sawyer and his three brothers stop trouble in its tracks.Next there is Morgan the 2nd oldest brother and the sheriff in town. When Honeys sister comes for the wedding, Morgan is immediately attracted to her.Unfortunately she has secrets to hide that she dosent want anyone to find outMorgan does not want her around and tries to run her off first, but then he realizes he wants her to stay around. She is the only person who will stand up to his gruff manner and tells him he is actually sweet. What a thing to tell a man who uses his mean reputation to control things. Read on for what happens in their story.I highly recommend both books as highly entertaining tales with two alpha men who are really good guys and who are brought to their knees by the women they love. There is quite a bit of sexual content.

    This review was posted at Under the CoversSawyer – 3 StarsI think this book started off on the wrong foot with me. Mainly because this is Honey’s story and I wanted to punch Honey in the face, most of the time, repeatedly. The woman didn’t seem to have an ounce of common sense! She’s presumably running from someone that wants to kill her and ends up hiding out with a houseful of men after he has a car accident. Sawyer, being the doctor, is taking care of her. But for complete strangers, Honey jumped right on board with her damsel in distress role, and then even had a bit of Stockholm Syndrome when Sawyer wasn’t letting her leave because he wanted to “protect” her. *Glad I got that off my chest*The good thing about this was that Sawyer and Honey were still hot together and she does care for his son, making it believable that they could work as a couple.Of course, as an introduction to all these men, wow! There’s nothing better than a bunch of hot men waking up in the middle of the night and running out to face danger armed with nothing more than ummmm well they weren’t wearing much. Morgan – 3.5 StarsI started off really liking this story. Morgan was sexier, edgier, rougher around the edges and seemed like an animal trying to contain his urges. His attraction for Honey’s sister was instant! And Misty responded to that. I liked that she was flirty and fun with everyone else but with him, she was fighting the attraction and ended up being bitchy. Of course, with all that sexual tension that made for some explosive encounters whenever they let go and got near each other.I enjoyed Misty as a heroine a lot more than Honey, but I can’t say she didn’t have her stupid moments. Especially at the end. And the other thing that I wasn’t completely sold on was the repeat history that now Morgan is going to go through the same thing Sawyer did with his ex wife, in regards to his kid.Overall, though, this book was very sexy, with sizzling chemistry and a whole lot of alpha males.

    Let me start with the yummylicious cover *wipes drool* because it definitely caught my attention. This audiobook includes two stories that were originally published individually. The first and second book in the series focus on the brothers Sawyer and Morgan. There is a second audiobook Buckhorn Forever that ends the series and includes the story of the other two brothers. Sawyer is a single dad who has been burned in the past and never wants to fall in love again... But Honey comes into his life by accident (literally) and a very sweet and sexy romance develops. Morgan is the responsible sheriff who is ready to marry a nice sweet woman but when he meets Misty (Honey's sister) who is very different from his ideal woman his world is turned upside down. Sawyer's story is significantly better than Morgan's. Morgan's story was funnier but the audio had a problem. Apparently the last hour was recorded twice (it repeats the last hour). These are very much Harlequin type predictable love stories but sometimes you just want to listen to a good happily ever after. If you enjoy sweet love stories with sexy perfect men then this series will be great for you. Narration: Isabelle Gordon did a good job. Not the best I've heard but I would listen to more books narrated by her. Her male voices are ok and she did add intensity to the love scenes.

    SawyerHoly hell, I'm moving to Kentucky! Seriously, if that is what men are like there, sign me up!From the beginning, Sawyer is a total stud. Who wouldn't fall for a caring, compassionate, coddling super sexy doctor?! I loved all the brothers and their dynamics. Obviously a stellar beginning to what is going to shape up to be a wonderful series.Honey Malone was another stellar female lead from Foster, with the perfect balance of pugnacity and softness. I loved the slight hint of mystery with her being followed and how everything wrapped up with the ex-fiance and thugs. I was glad that Sawyer's resistance wasn't drawn out and overly dramatic. I am also a total fan of hot dads, so the entire story behind Sawyer and Casey was just a cherry on top of one sweet sundae! All around love for this one!MorganI think we need a new sherriff in my town! Loved the teddy bear side of Morgan and the fact that he's used his size and reputation to hide it from most people.That being said, I wasn't completely sold on the storyline of this book. Reusing the "raising another man's baby" plot wasn't appealing and it made the chemistry just a little awkward at times. I wanted to love it, but it got a little boring and predictable, especially towards the end.

    2 contemporary romance novellas. The 1st has protected sex, the 2nd does not. You always know what you're getting with a LF story. The men are muscle bound & hunky. The women are small & need protection. Somehow this works for me. Sawyer is the oldest in a family of 4 men. He has a 15 year old son from a previous marriage. He rescues Honey (who names their daughter Honey?) after a car crash injures her on his property. There's an 11 year age difference between them, & I don't know how I feel about that. It's not quite too much, but it's pushing it IMO. Of course Honey can't help falling in love with Sawyer, but he makes it plain it's temporary. He's been burned by his first wife & he won't make that mistake again. Honey, however works her way under his skin & Sawyer finds out someone is trying to hurt her. You know it all works out in the end! Morgan is his next oldest brother. Honey's sister, Misty comes to help her with wedding plans. Morgan & Misty meet & it's instant chemistry. There's also at least a 10 year age difference between them. There's also other complications which I won't spoil for you. Morgan is more dominating & controlling than Sawyer, so Misty has to lay down the law to keep him from steamrolling over her. Easy, light reads.

    Reissue of 2 books from 2000 and boy did they feel older than that.I finished them but not without lots of ughs, "why am I reading this" thoughts, and eye rolling.Both books include:-Damsels in distress whose problems are solved entirely by the men-barefoot in the kitchen remarks-A woman hitting her guy because she's frustrated with him then being described as "strong" because of it. Untrue. Use your words. -Guys purposely breaking or not fixing the woman's car so she can't leave until they think it's the right time-The brothers calling the women 'sweetheart' or 'honey' and when someone objects, they're told "you'll get used to it."-The lead male thinking all he needed to do was sex up the woman for a week to get her out of his system for most of the bookThe first includes Honey randomly jumping into a dangerous situation and putting everyone at risk. Foolish and ridiculous. The second has the gem of a line: "I keep telling you that you should control your wife." (421)Look, I finished it. Sure, there were some parts I liked. But we can do better than this. Oh, Sawyer includes grilled cheese being called a healthy choice. I'm in no way mad at this. ha.

    Again, I find short stories uninteresting -- especially romances. The characters normally jump in bed immediately or fall in love so fast you wonder where the 5 alarm fire is. Here, the storeis are built up, the characters get to know each other. Sadly, the endings resembled summations which is why I didn't give these two stories a five star rating. The first story is about Sawyer and Honey. The Hudsom brothers are true single men, and when Honey is taken into the Hudson home, all of them trip over each other as if they had never seen a woman before. Honey had been involved in an accident and Sawyer, a doctor, nurses her back to health (in more ways than one). The second story is about Morgan and Misty, who happens to be the sister to Honey. Misty comes with a lot of baggage, literally, but Morgan, the town sheriff, gets to know her. Misty is feisty but he handles her well. I found the writing style of these books excellent, the love scenes done in good taste and look forward to reading the next installment in the Buckhorn series.

    First off, I want to start off this review by saying that this book is two books in one. The first two books in this incredible series by author Lori Foster. I also want to start off by saying that this book is set in the state I live so hell yeah!Alright, time for the actual review. Buckhorn Beginnings features two of the brothers in this family the first one being Sawyer and the other being Morgan, following them as they find their true loves and all throughout the romance of each of these chivalrous men. I don't mean kind, I literally mean their momma brought them up right, opening doors for women and treating them like they are queen's kind of chivalrous men. That was one of the things that really drew me into this book. They were those men that you really wanted to just wrap your arms around them and say MINE!To Read More of My Review CLICK HERE
