Blurb: Jonah Steel has fallen in love with Melanie Carmichael but still lives with the guilt that consumes him as he tries to unravel the mystery of his family’s past. A new threat has surfaced, and he finds himself trapped in a web of deceit and lies.
Melanie loves Jonah but has yet to surrender completely to his needs. Meanwhile, a new friend uncovers more information and more questions. While the ghosts of Melanie’s past still hover around her, she joins Jonah on his quest for answers. Together, they vow to find the truth.
But the deeper they dig, the more danger they uncover…and Jonah’s life hangs in the balance.
Let me start by saying that the Steel Brothers Saga must be read in order, or you will not understand what is going on in the book. This saga also talks about topics that are sometimes hard to talk about and might be too hard to read for some people.
With that being said, this book was HOLY HOTNESS!!!! As a romantic suspense book it had twists and turns that will make you say “What the f***!!”
This is the third story about Jonah and Melanie, the sixth in the series. If you’ve read the previous books, you know that Talon had been abducted when he was younger, and they are now starting to figure out who the kidnappers are. Their biggest questions right now are; Why was Talon abducted? How did the kidnappers know each other?
During the story, you will learn new information about the abduction and the people who were involved. You start to learn how people are connected, and these connections will stun you.
I absolutely love these brothers. I loved Talon and with these last three books, I’m loving Jonah also. Jonah is strong, dominating, sexy, but he is also loving and cares so deeply about the people that he loves.
Melanie is just the right person for Jonah. Their chemistry is amazing and let’s just say the sex is off the charts!!!
Helen Hardt is a genius. Plain and simple. The characters are written perfectly and the plot is so amazing that words cannot describe it. Just when you think you start to figure something out, she throws you a loop. The details in this book are incredible and make the story that much better.
So first we have Talon, then we have Jonah, now in August we get Ryan’s story, Shattered. Ryan’s story will also include Ruby (Detective Lee) and you will not believe how she is tied to everything.
“Wicked, yes. Forbidden, oh yes. But right. Dark and dangerous and right”
