Shattered (Steel Brothers Saga) - Helen Hardt

Title:  Shattered

Author:  Helen Hardt

Publisher:  Waterhouse Press

Series:  Steel Brothers Saga # 7

Reviewed By:  Arlena Dean

Rating:  Five



"Shattered" by Helen Hardt


My Synopsis....


This was another good Steel Brothers Saga # 7 that featured mainly Ryan and Ruby along with the rest of the brothers, sister and sister in laws.  We find the two older brothers are getting married and all are in Jamaica having a good time.  But something will happen to two of the guest at the resort that will shorten their trip.  Upon coming home Ryan and Ruby seem to be coming together with such hot and steamy chemistry however, after a  text and phone call will cause secrets to start coming out that will put quite a damper on this relationship.  How will this situation be handled by the other family members and even Ruby as she is involved too?  Even toward the end of this series both Ryan and Ruby will receive a phone call that will send this twisted intensed story into a cliffhanger for this novel and will only leave the reader wanting to know more.  Hopeful in the end Ryan and Ruby will get to a HEA.

Craving (The Steel Brothers Saga) - Helen Hardt

My Thoughts....

Interesting series 'Steel Brothers Saga # 1' that features Talon Steel and Jade Roberts who were definitely two broken souls. This author gives the reader quite a good story and be warned it end on a cliffhanger where you will have to get the rest of the story in later series. Be ready for quite a emotional roller coaster ride and lots of twist and turns for these two. The main question is will they be able to heal each other?

After Jade is left at the alter on her wedding day she goes to stay with her friend, Marjorie Steel at the Steele brothers ranch while she is waiting to get her results from the bar exam to become a lawyer. What will happen after Jade meets Talon Steele? Will it be something their for them especially for Talon at the first sight of her[picking her up from the airport? But as we read their is a lots that had gone on with Talon not only was he returning from the Marines but something had happen to Talon in his past during his childhood. What was Talon's childhood secret that it seemed that he was always struggling so hard with especially when he was with Jade? And then their was the question to what was it between Jade and Talon as it seems that he simply craved her..all the time? Why was it so hard for Talon to open up about what had gone on with him especially to Jade. Will he seek help? This is a very mature adult read so be aware that this story is loaded with a lots of erotica sex that will be all over the place for these two. Well, to get all of these questions answered and so much more you will have to pick up "Craving" to see just how well this author brings it out to the reader. It will be one heck of a good read.

So, I guess the reader will have to get the next series to see if these two finally get their HEA.

Inner City Blues
Inner City Blues (Stafford Brothers series Book 6) - Chicki Brown,Karen McCollum Rodgers

"Inner City Blues" by Chicki Brown

My Thoughts....

This last [6] book of this series "Inner City Blues" of the Stafford's was indeed another good read featuring Dr. Jesse Stafford [a twin] and his wife Cydney [Cyd]. It was simply a wonderful well written story that really brings out what all is going on in this family. Between Jessie being a busy oncologist and his wife being a stay at home home...this family keep plenty busy. What will happen when Jesse is arrested and things started happening due to him aiding a family member of his wife? The story really picks up that will involve his wife too. Now, I don't want to spoil it other than saying you will have to get this novel in order to know what all is going on with Jessie and Cydney. I liked how this author brought in the 'current news headlines' of just what has gone on in this city of Atlanta. I thought that was beautifully done! This Stafford family [all of the characters]...from mom, dad, the six brothers and their wife's along with all of their children will give the reader one excellent storyline that will keep your attention to the very end. I will not only recommend this novel but all six of the series to learn about each of these Stafford brothers [Jesse, Nick, Marcus. Vic, Greg & Charles] and a lot more of this interesting family!
