C. M. Steele is
becoming one of what I call my Auto Read SAFE Authors.
She doesn’t give us all
the stupid, petty and unnecessary drama regarding other women with her heroes.
Even her heroines know what they want in these sexy and ott alphas. These guys
fall hard, fast and completely.
I loved Alex’s possessiveness that was
absolutely perfect alpha level all the way. I adored how he waited and didn’t
look at another woman for 2 solid years till Cali was legal. No messing around with
other chicks while claiming to love his lady. No a real hero would wait.
and how she was vulnerable but at the same time sassy and funny.
There was some pretty sad topics in this little read but Mrs. Steele has a way
that heats up the pages at the right time taking the characters away from their
troubles and immersing them into their beautiful love. That’s what romance
is..taking you away into the best feeling of love and loyalty.
scenes had me fanning myself.
"I don’t know if there will ever be a time that I didn’t get jealous when it came to my Cali."
This author has no filter when it comes to sexy
times. But that’s a good thing. All I was left saying after this read ended was
I took a risk and dove into this freebie blind. I actually was trying to read the oldest book on my kindle that I hadn't read yet. I was not only pleased, surprised and happy but I am hooked. This was exactly what I needed. With being on the more conservative side of steamy romance I simply like just love stories with depth and no other drama. No side elements that I don't read, no other people drama just good old fashioned steamy love story. Ruth gave me that and more. See took a sexy brooding hero and she brought him to his knees. A feisty school teacher shook this millionaire's foundation and proved that love and family is all that's important in the end.
Dominic was my favorite type of hero.. Bossy, take charge and tender when it counted. So possessive he didn't want Abby out of his sight.
Abby was brave, loyal and absolutely the perfect fit to this headstrong man.
I absolutely am going to be binge reading. I need these type stories.. Maybe I'm getting older who knows but all the unnecessary and gross drama that even the side characters get involved in some of the newer books detract from my pleasure. I'm just a old fashioned girl who misses her mom's steamy books I used to sneak and devour. This just fit that bill perfectly.
Sometimes I sit and hold my kindle thinking why can’t I find
that special book that I need right now. The one that is just going to suck me
and keep me for a while. The one that gives me goosies and tingles, smiles and
The one that will stay with me for long after the cover is closed. Well
yesterday I was in need of a feel good romance with some sexy times. I wanted a
hero who was in it for the long haul and not afraid of forever.
That is what I
got and more from this amazing read.
I know that authors rely on reviews and I
know that more than that readers do to. I will always be a reader first and
secondly I am a very particular reader. I am a part of a group that wants to
read “safe” books. This is a very specific and personal opinion and with each
of us it’s different. But the one thing we all agree on is we don’t want our
heroes with other women or our heroines with other men after they meet in the
book. So when I stumble on a book I dive in without reviews and I find it's not only SAFE but it's FANtastic! I am in love!! So I have to just share all that I have in my heart right now.
There will be "slight" spoilers but I will not give away anything that greatly impacts the enjoyment of the story.
Layne was in a relationship with Bobby for 7 years. She wanted
marriage, the 2.5 kids and the happy home and family. Bobby wasn’t really
interested in marriage but he agreed to the baby. Maybe Layne was naive but I
know that it’s hard when you want love and there is someone claiming to love
you right there ..you just want to latch on to them. Doesn’t make it smart but
the dumbest organ in the body sometimes is the heart.
Layne catches Bobby cheating ..with her best friend.
Layne is sent away to heal by her boss Marcie
and this is where the most beautiful healing love story I’ve read in a long
Ace Sharp..protective , hard working, honorable and kind.
and Layne had this almost electric chemistry from the start. I love when heroes
and heroines meet and the heat is felt so strongly that they don’t even know
what to do with it.
“Layne,” I repeat. “I’ve wanted to kiss you since the first time I saw you. I’ve fought it every day since then. I know you’ve been hurt, but I’m not him. Look at me, Layne . See me here with you.”
There was some heated banter..some sexy arguing and then one
amazing friendship developed with the center being one adorable little angel
Ace is a single father and he’s all about his daughter.
needs the love a child can give and River absorbs it with every fiber of her
being. Things are so sweet and the time goes by and before you know it Ace and
Layne decide that they want to give this a go. I absolutely loved how they
spent time as a platonic friendship before anything happened..for weeks they
just hung out. They didn’t jump into this with River in the middle and I
"If there’s something between us we both want, I’m actually hurting myself and my daughter by not giving it a chance. So tell me something, Layne. Are you willing to take a chance on me?”
When they gave their all
it was felt ..it was right there to see and believe. Such heat that was more
erotic than just sex it had so much emotion and I can’t say enough how
articulate and amazing of a writer this author is. I hope every romantic that
loves a strong foundation of caring, honor and kindness will give this a
There is a lot of suspense going on in the background. There is
characters that are introduced that will absolutely break your heart and then
steal it forever. So many but I don’t want to give those twists and turns away.
This is a story with so much emotion and so much beauty that you really need to feel it and experience it. Fans
of books with heroes that stand up and fight..that claim and keep will love
“What happens at the end of the summer?” I whisper, afraid of his answer, regardless of what it is. “We’ll just go where summer never ends,” he replies.
But also fans of strong heroines who realize where in life they
made their mistakes and they learn form them..that they claim also.the family
that’s by blood and the ones that is by heart.
His voice makes me feel relaxed and excited. His touch makes me feel calm and aroused. His presence makes me feel protected and carefree.
It’s amazing how love multiplies exponentially with no effort at all. That is what you’ll find here.
Ace and Layne will always be a favorite couple of mine but hands down this
entire family..all the way into the absolutely amazing epilogue will always be
in my heart. I really hope I get to see more from this small wonderful heartwarming
town. I don’t want to leave. I really could see myself living there.
That’s a romance folks.. #PerfectAlpha #AmazingRomance #Safe
Note to Ms. Justice. I will be stalking your books hard. I can't wait to see if you have more Nic Proof Safe books!!
