Possession by Helen Hardt
The Steel Brothers #3 (must be read in order)
Release Date: September 27, 2016
Overall Rating: 5 stars
Jade Roberts' love for Talon Steel is the real deal, and she is more determined than ever to help him come to grips with whatever is haunting him. To that end, she continues her investigation of the Steels and unknowingly attracts some dangerous foes from their shrouded history.
Talon loves Jade deeply and longs to possess her forever, so he faces his worst fears and exposes his rawest wounds in an attempt to heal. The road is icy and treacherous, but if he perseveres and comes out whole on the other side, he'll finally be worthy of Jade's love.
The untamed passion between the two still blazes, but as the horrors of Talon's past resurface, Jade and Talon aren't safe.
Note: This is the third book in the series and each must be read in order. Book #1 is CRAVING. Book #2 is OBSESION. You should also be warned that this series deals with some very difficult issues (which are descriptive) and may be a hard limit for some.
WOAH. Helen Hardt has truly blown me away with this series. It is dark, emotional, intense, horrifying, and utterly beautiful all mixed together. With the first two book we are left with many unanswered question and the majority of those ARE answered in this one. However, the story is not finished and there are still many things left to be answered and uncovered. To say this one ends in a cliffhanger would be deceiving because it doesn’t really. I mean, peace is made and Talon is able to move on from his terrible past. BUT it does end in a way that tells us that the story isn’t necessarily finished. Some people still need to brought to justice and secrets will still need to be uncovered about the family and their past. So readers should be warned… You may get your happily ever after but you sure as hell don’t get the end of it all… Not by a long shot! Now I can’t wait for MELT which will be available in December of this year.
>> SPOLERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVENT READ THIS SERIES <<
For everyone that has read the two previous book in the series, you know that Talon was kidnapped and abused when he was younger. When we finish with book 2 we kind of figure out who is behind the kidnapping and such but are left hanging. Well, in this book we find out WHO TWO of the men are but we are missing the last one. Who could he be??? Once again, Helen leaves us hanging because we get a glimpse of the third masked man in this one which shows us that this story is not over by a long shot! But even still, the story is told in a delicate and beautiful way and the love story that emerges for Talon and Jade is absolutely magnificent. To say these two bring about the emotions is an understatement. I had so many feels that I didn’t know where I was part of the story. YIKES! That’s how you know we have a great author on our hands.
Anyway, ultimately Talon and Jade go get their HEA in this one because Talon is finally able to be honest with her about his past. The growth of this character is truly phenomenal and I loved ho Jade was able to open up this severely damaged man. But, as I said before the story is not over and not everything is resolved yet. I have high hopes that the next book will finish answering everything that has been left unsaid and I honestly cannot wait to dive into it. Is it December yet???
Final thoughts …
This is a truly great series. While it is certainly dark and sad and is likely to upset many readers due to the nature of what happened to Talon when he was a child, the overall story of love and redemption overpowers everything else. Helen Hardt did an amazing job bringing these characters to light and I truly felt like they were friends of mine in some way. If you have yet to read the series, you really should. Readers (and lovers of romance) will get a dark and damaged man who is able to overcome his pain and suffering through love- this is what makes it all so damn beautiful. So read it!
