Summary

Allegra Simpson is the vice president of Simpson Fashion. She's always handled life like her mother taught her - with manners and a smile. But Allegra learns being nice can get you in trouble as someone haunts her from the shadows and turns her life to one of secrets. She fears she'll never be able to have a relationship with Finn because it would put everyone she loves in danger.

Finn Williams had a promising professional baseball career until an injury disrupted everything. But Finn wouldn't let that stop him. He went to law school and started his own sports agency with the support of the Simpson family. The only thing missing was Allegra's love. The chemistry between the two had been undeniable. But Finn knew there was something that Allegra is holding back from him. He just has to get her to trust him enough to tell him.

The man in the shadows is watching. He's always watching. He knows Allegra's every move. He's been in her house and laid in her bed and has plans to make her love him. She rejected him, but they are destined for each other. He's seen her with Finn and knows this new man is no match for him. Soon she'll come to see they are meant to be. Because if he can't have her then no one can.

Kathleen Brooks does it again.

Kathleen Brooks does it again. This book rocks, I love it. The Simpson are another family I love.

Allegra has always been told to be nice to people. She has always been nice so why is this happening to her!! She loves her Family and Finn and doesn't want anybody to get hurt.

Finn has had to work hard his whole life to get what he wanted. He wants to keep everyone he cares about safe. So when Allegra gets a stalker, he just doesn't know what to do.

I can't wait for Destined For Power. I am hoping its Mallory's book, as I have loved her in all the books even in bluegrass novella.

Weakest Heroine Award goes to!

Alegra was pathetic. Finn deserved better. Shirley & her antics were the only good thing about this story. Almost didn,'t finish!

Annoyingly Cliché

The subject mostly sums it up. Also, the heroine was an idiot with no depth of character. My eyes hurt from rolling them so much.

Plus, it was clear from the story details that the author knows little to nothing about Atlanta.

Diminishing returns

Each of these sisters has less common sense than the one who came before her. It's amazing that the two younger sisters made it to adulthood. This book drove me nuts because Allegra seemed too dim to have accomplished what she had professionally. And I liked Finn a lot and wanted better for him. I couldn't get through this whole book. I like this author's political romantic suspense books much better than this series, which I'm giving up on.

Sheer entertainment but no surprises

If you love the author, this series is good. It’s also great to hv a series set with a cast of strong, successful women.

Whiny. Whiny. Whiny. Ugh

I get what the author was trying to portray here but man I hated how Allegra was portrayed. Not all women who are stalked are that naive or that shy. I do think the voice was made extra whiny too maybe a different voice would have helped. It ended much better than it started. It was the least favorite of the series.

Gets Better With Every Book

OMGOSH!!! I've listened to all 3 books in 3 days. I don't want to stop listening!! I'm not a girly girl but we all like to dress up so hearing this from the other side was interesting. The character development is amazing and the story line is original. Each sister has their unique traits to bring to the table and they have done it! Can't wait for Book 4!!

Recommended

My least favorite of the stories in this series. I got the point of how being nice all the time can make a person appear weak early in the story. I didn't have to have it repeated so often. I felt that in trying to appear strong she made some really stupid decisions and assumptions. I got frustrated with her.

Another Great Story

Love the Power books! Fashioned for power did not disappoint! Shirley is my FAVORITE character. The love story was great and the suspense killed me! I thought it was Jasper but I was surprised. Can't wait to read the next one.
Finally, Amy McFadden is the best story teller ever!!!!!

Loved it..

Any additional comments?

I was worried for no reason. I thought for sure this was going to be full of secrets and angst but it wasn’t. The same wonderful family, always ready to jump in and help each other. I don’t believe I’ve ever read a series of books where every family member was as nice and strong as this group.

Allegra came a long way since the first book. Always so nice and calm, to where she fought the bad guy like a tiger. It was Mallery who took him out but Allegra did some serious damage to him before Mallery, Finn and Terrell came in to save her and Shirley.

The usually crew were here: Margaret, Elle, Drake, Bree and Logan, etc. And I do enjoy them all.

The bad guy was sure a whack-job, and left behind a whole slew of victims. He really did get what he deserved.

As usual, Ms. Brooks doesn’t write any kind of sexual tension, no desire, no thoughts, no wanting, no sexual frustration, no nothing, but she does write a good bedroom scene.

As to the narrator: I happen to adore Amy McFadden. She keeps me thoroughly entertained while she reads. The women all have different voices and the men sound alike but as long as they sound like men I really don't care. I don't know of one female narrator who can make all the men sound different, any more than a male narrator can do women's voices that well. It's the narrators who sound like women when a man's talking that I can't stand.
