Publisher's Summary

Location: north of the Arctic Circle, Population: 150 (mostly men!) But the three O'Halloran brothers, who run a bush-plane charter service called Midnight Sons, are heading a campaign to bring women to town.

Brides for Brothers

Sawyer O'Halloran, the middle brother, isn't entirely in favor of this scheme. But he considers himself immune to any woman - even the lovely Abbey Sutherland. She's arriving in Alaska within days. However, there's a complication...or two. She hasn't told them she's arriving with kids!

The Marriage Risk

Like his brothers, Charles O'Halloran has a distrust of marriage in general - and of anyone related to Catherine Harmon Fletcher in particular. She's the woman who tried to destroy his parents' marriage. Too bad Lanni Caldwell, the only woman he's ever really fallen for, is Catherine's granddaughter.

Easy and Enjoyable Listen

I recently read Paper Towns by John Green and read by Dan John Miller. That book was "meh" but I liked the narrator. So I looked for other books that he read/performed and found Midnight Sons, Volume 1.

This book fully entertained me while on my drive back and forth to work. Somewhat predictable at times but then again we know how the story will end up. Nonetheless, I'm a sucker for romance novels and this books dishes it right up to you.

Now I'm on to volume 2.

Alaskan romance

When 2 of the O'Halloran brother's devise a plan to bring women to the remote area of Harluck, Alaska, they have no idea how much their own lives are about to change. This Vol.1 contains the first two books in this delightful series. I have enjoyed learning more about the great white North. More than that, Macomber has created a town with a variety of interesting characters. These stories are written so that the reader feels part of this quaint town and invited into the lives of those who live there. I greatly admire authors who can create such wonderful characters. Glad there is more to read. [I listened to this on audible and am ready to begin listening to the next two books in the series].

"Missed the Mark for me"

Ok romances but not compelling. The conflict between the characters seemed somewhat lame. The reasons for the characters who loved each other almost immediately not coming together seemed a little unrealsitic. Something not modern about the stories. Seems like a romance that might have been published thirty or forty years ago.

Midnight Sons

This turned out to be a great book, I was pleasantly surprised, yes it was slightly predictable, but worth it. The narrator was great. He read for the entire series and did a fantastic job, his voice was not irritating, or too male for the female parts. I listened to all three volumes and was not disappointed.

Good, clean fun

Fun, lighthearted, and clean. It was a perfect romance novel set to end the day and keep me company throughout the day. I would highly recommend it if you are in the mood for a beach read!

Sawyer & Abbey, Charles & Lanni

*****Spoiler Alert*****

Audible review. Multiple POV. Books 1 & 2 of 7 in the Midnight Sons series, Hardluck, Alaska. Narrator did a great job. The intro and finalé music was unnecessary and annoying. Rated G stories.

Milqtoast

Two Very PG romances featuring brothers Sawyer O’Halloran and Charles O’Halloran.
Good if you like linked stories. Pretty mild if you want to be drawn into the story.
Miller does a respectable job of narration.

A good intro into Hard Luck, Alaska

This is a two book set. Total time is 10 hours 3 minutes.

**Book 1- Brides for Brothers 00:39 - 05:05:41**
2.75 - 3 Stars. Insta-love story set in a tiny town in Alaska called Hard Luck. To begin, there is a timeline that is provided for the setting, characters' ancestors and relatives. The book starts slow with all of the back story and it's a short book so there is a bunch crammed in about the location and the side characters so the main characters don't get a whole lot of substance to their story. I liked the characters though and thought the kids and dog were great. The ending was cute. The narration is fine. Not my favorite but it was easy to listen to and understand.

**Book 2 - The Marriage Risk 05:05:42 - 10:01:46**
I liked this book more than book 1. Overall, I rate book two 3.5 stars.

The Marriage Risk is book 2 of the Midnight Sons series set in Hard Luck, Alaska in 1995. This book is about Charles, the eldest of the O’Halloran brothers and newcomer Lanni Caldwell. This book had a bit of a Romeo and Juliet vibe because Charles and Lanni’s families have a long standing feud and even though they fell in instant love upon meeting each other, once Charles learned who Lanni’s grandmother was, he determined that they could not have a relationship and they had to determine if it was worth trying to work through.

This is a fairly short book, and when I say instalove, I really mean instantly, but we got more of a full story in this book, for these characters, than we did in book 1 for middle O’Halloran brother, Sawyer and his love interest. Since all the groundwork was formed in book 1, it gave us more time to get to know the characters, so I did enjoy that. I also liked that we still saw the couple from book 1 and we watched as their relationship progressed with their wedding and honeymoon.

The narration is fine. I think I am starting to get used to the narrator now. I am interested in continuing the series and reading book 3.
