I know his type. Stuck up. Arrogant. The kind of guy who hasn't had to work for a damn thing his entire life. Even his name, Henry Caldwell III, reeks of privilege.
And me? Well, let's just say I come with more baggage than a 747 and enough bullsh*t to fuel it.
The problem is I want him. Crave him. It's the kind of pure, all-consuming, panty-soaking lust that can make a girl forget why she swore off men to begin with.
He thinks I need saving. But this isn't a Cinderella story, and he's no Prince Charming. At least not mine. I learned long ago that trusting any man with my heart isn't just dangerous - it can be deadly.
Emotionally crippled, smart-mouthed, and sexy as sin, the woman is nothing I need and everything I want.
Despite her hard edges, tattoos, and reckless spirit, I know she craves more. More from life, more from love, more from me.
She thinks I'm just a trust fund brat and maybe she's right. But I've got secrets of my own. I know what darkness is. I've lived it - faced the pit of hell and barely survived.
The question is, am I strong enough to face it again? Because if I'm ever going to break through the steel wall she's placed around her heart, it'll mean facing demons we both thought were long dead and buried.
I only read some reviews after finishing this book and all I will say is... Stick with it!.
I started MELTING STEEL and began to think it was an insta-love romance with a typical, rich alpha bossy male, I thought Henry was so, I don't know, cliche? and this was the typical man meets woman he wants her and the chase begins but I was so wrong. I was pleasantly surprised.
I think me and Henry just got off on the wrong foot, I ended up really liking the guy, swooning even.
Henry and Keeley first meet while Henry is playing near his home he is only 9. Henry sees a little girl crying, a woman in the background is being pushed around and one of his neighbours shouting at her, Henry see's the bruises on Keeley and even at a young age knows in his heart that Keeley is someone he wants to protect. Henry who is obviously going through a knight in shining armour phase in his youth gives Keeley his small wooden sword before she is whisked away by her mother saying it will protect her from Dragons.
Keeley never thought she would run into the boy again who once gave her hope.. Henry also never thought he would ever see the girl he never forgot either, until years later they meet again in a bar and Henry feels drawn to Keely and is determined to in good old cave man fashion to make her his, there is just something about her that he can't shake off and he is determined to get to know her.
This is only tip of the iceberg in this story.
Keeley is feisty, a woman with backbone, she hasn't had the privileged background like Henry. Keeley has a drug addict of a brother, had an abusive mother and now has people after her for her brothers debts.
The plot in MELTING STEEL has plenty of twists and turns, I was more than engrossed as the story progressed and I could not put this book down.
For action, drama, danger, insta-love and a heartwarming hea MELTING STEEL is a recommended read.
Currently Free on Amazon which is a brilliant way to sample an author you haven't read before, I felt everything was balanced out brilliantly, action, drama, hotness and romance. I would definitely read more from this author.
