Release Date: August 29, 2017
Genre: Darker Romantic Suspense
I read this book from start to finish in one sitting. It's another great addition to the Steel Brothers series and features a different cast of characters- Ryan and Ruby. If you have been following the series then you know that each book must be read in order of publication as it features the same suspenseful and dark story line. The first 3 books tell Talon's story and quest to find out who hurt him when he was a kid all the while slowly falling in love with Jade. The next three books are Jonah and Melanies story. They are still on the hunt to find the men who tortured his brother and love was an unexpected surprise in the journey. Finally, this book, and the two that will follow, will (hopefully) give us readers the rest of the answers we crave so all the bad guys can be put to justice. Will love be on the platter for Ryan as well? I am thinking so based on this one. But who knows what will happen as Helen Hardt has a way of surprising her readers!
If you are a fan of a darker romantic suspense novel, I would highly recommend this book to you. However, if you haven't read the first 6 books first then you will have to start from the beginning. The good news is that these are fairly quick reads. But be warned that this story has very dark elements that may not sit well with some.
Ryan surprised me in this book. I certainly had him on my mind as he made many appearances in the first six books, but was never able to develop a deeper connection with him... Until now. Ryan is a bit different from his brothers, doesn't necessarily suffer as much, but still has demons to fight. Ruby- the woman who begins to steal his heart, is not at all who I would have expected Helen to couple him up with, but I have to admit, it works. Now I am anxiously anticipating the next release as one again, we are left hanging with out mouths agape at the ending.
Special thanks to the author and publisher for providing me an early copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my views or rating in any way.
