First things first, for those who haven’t read the previous books of the Steel Brothers series, you have to if you want to read this book. Preferably the entire series, but at least you have to read the books Shattered and Twisted to read this one (you can find the entire series in order at the bottom of this page).
And because this is (probably) the last book of the series, I thought I would do an overview of it all. The main story of the series is: one of the Steel brothers was abducted, tortured and raped so each set of three books shows you how each one of the brothers deals with that. Craving, Obsession, and Possession are about Talon (the one brother who was taken); Melt, Burn and Surrender are about Jonah (the oldest) and Shattered, Twisted and Unraveled are about Ryan (the youngest).
Ryan is currently in a relationship with Ruby, the daughter of one of Talon’s abductors. They, as well as the entire Steel family, are trying to bring down the men responsible for Talon’s abduction.
So, this book starts off right where Twisted ended: with Ruby pointing a gun at her father’s head. And that’s just the beginning of a rollercoaster that I never saw coming. And what will that lead us to? CLOSURE. In this book, we get all the explanations we were looking for and a ton more secrets that I sure wasn’t expecting. Relentless action, heart-stopping twists and hard-core romance is what you will find if you go on this ride!
This book is also more aggressive than the previous books. All I can say is that rape is something very real in this book. It is not something very specific but it might be more than you can probably take. Just be aware that this is not your bed-time story kind of book!
Regarding the sex scenes (and yes, I do have to talk about this in this series), the deal is: if you liked them in the previous books, you will like them in this book too; if you never saw the appeal in the previous boos, you won’t find it here either. For those who haven’t read the series, all the Steel brothers are darker than your usual playboy! Not fifty-shades kind of darker or something that involves BDSM elements, but they’re not a walk in the park either. The sex scenes are pretty specific and they all involve some submission on Ruby’s side.
Now, is this book the closure that we all have been looking for? Yes! Were all the secrets revealed? Yes! Is there going to be more books? I honestly don’t know. Even though there’s nothing more to tell about Talon’s abduction, we can’t forget that there’s still a single person in the family: Marjorie, the baby girl of the family and sister of the men of the series. So, I would say that there’s still hope, right?
I’m obviously sad that this story is over but I’m sooo happy with how things ended! I always say this but it’s true: I can’t recommend this series enough! This is such a peculiar story with such strong characters that you will just fall in love with them all! And the story will keep you completely smitten! I would even say that the only bad thing about this series is that it will keep you up at night because you won’t be able to sleep with all the excitement!
Anyways, thank you so much again Waterhouse Press and Helen Hardt for the ARC, I am extremely grateful for this book in particular!
