Review: Harmony's Way by Lora Leigh

Harmony's Way is the 8th book in the Breed series by Lora Leigh and a Paranormal Romance from Berkley Sensation.

Book Blurb:

Harmony Lancaster is of the Lion Breed, created to be a huntress with a thirst to kill. But the way she seeks justice outside of the law makes her a liability to her own kind. Yet she also possesses information that they need on the existence of the first Leo - who holds the precious secrets of desire.

To save her life, Harmony is paired with Sheriff Lance Jacobs, who tries to tame the killer within her, while protecting the gentle woman he longs to possess. But a dangerous cult leader, bent on destroying the Breeds, could change the way Lance looks at Harmony forever...

Harmony's Way is the first book I have read by Lora Leigh and I love the concept of genetically engineered individuals with animal DNA.

Harmony is known as Death. She has killed to escape imprisonment, killed to escape re-capture and killed in the name of justice - her justice. Now she has to prove that she can be 'good'. If she survives her 6 month probationary period - her brother, Jonas, will forgive her transgressions and allow her to live free.

But someone is trying to set Harmony up for failure. Bodies are being found - murdered, using 'Deaths' MO. But Harmony has not killed anyone - lately.

Sheriff Lance Jacobs has fallen for Harmony and he vows to protect her from all those who would seek to harm her - even herself.

Harmony's Way was an okay read. As I said, I like the idea of the Breeds - but this book is not one of my favorites.

Maybe it is because this is the 8th book in the series and I don't have all the background information.

But honestly I think it is because of the sex scenes.

Now, I like sex scenes just as much as the next person - but the sex dialogue in Harmony's Way is awful. I was completely turned off by how Lance talked to Harmony during their encounters (and there are a great many encounters) - it was like bad 70's porn.

I'm hoping the rest of the series has better sex dialogue - or none. No sex dialogue is better than bad sex dialogue. LOL

I give Harmony's Way 2 out of 5 stars.

Hi Michelle!
I love the "Breed" series by Lora Leigh. There are DOZENS of these books (Lion Breeds, Wolf Breeds, Tiger Breeds, Coyote Breeds etc), but my very favorite is still the first Breed book I read "Soul Deep". It's super HAWT and a quick read compared to many of the other books, but the chemistry and love between the hero and heroine was done perfectly (in my opinion).

hi Michelle,
Ewwwwww, 70s porn talk, I don't wanna read that. Please say her earlier books had better sex talk
