Steele by Erin Bevan is NOW LIVE!!!
Hometown firefighter, Blake Steele is living day by day, desperately trying to ease his guilt about his haunted past. When the beautiful Mary Franks moves in next-door, the conflict between what he knows in his head and what he feels in his heart suddenly becomes his most important struggle.
For Mary, living next door to a firefighter should be comforting, except her new neighbor continues to make a nuisance of himself by insisting on helping her—with everything. Despite her efforts, she can’t help but fall for him the more he hangs around. But love isn’t something Mary has time for. She has two goals: raising her son and hiding her illegal activities to keep her son safe.
When Mary’s ex is granted parole and fights to get his son back, she relies on Blake for support. But, as Blake uncovers the lies she’s kept, he is forced to face his own past to protect their futures before both of their lives go up in flames. Literally.

Wonderfully sweet and full of nail biting suspense! Steele quickly had me hooked. Between the swoony romance and the need to know what was going to happen next this book is pretty dang addictive. While I loved the steamy and sweet love with Steele and Mary along with the precious relationship between Steele and her son and the twists and turns kept me intrigued there were some moments when things dragged a bit for me.
Both Mary and Steele have quite the heartbreaking past, with Mary’s being very recent. After all she and her son suffered at the hands of her soon to be ex husband she’s very reluctant to even look at a man, but Steele is rather irresistible. Sweet, gentle, and protective, he’s absolutely devoted to her and her son even when she’s reluctant to be even friends with him. While understandable, the back and forth she had with her feelings toward Steele did eventually get a bit repetitive and cause me to lose interest occasionally, but once she finally let those walls down these two became a couple that you can’t help but love!
