Author: M.J. Fields
Series: Men of Steel #3
Meet Zandor Steel. He’s spent the past year in Italy acting out just about every sexual fantasy he could dream up. But it wasn’t all fun and games. Zandor was there to oversee construction on a posh casino resort playground for the rich and famous.
But rumors of trouble with this brothers has him worried, and Zandor heads home to help out. It’s the least he can do.
Jase and Cyrus had been Zandor’s mentors. When it came to women, they taught him to avoid attachments and to know the difference between lust and love. So when word of at least one of his brothers being ready to settle down arrives, Zandor hopes he can talk some sense into him before it’s too late.
Until he runs smack into resistance.
Southern Bell, Bekah George may just be the match Zandor has been looking for in the bedroom. She’s neither intimidated by, nor afraid of his preferences. But as he starts to let his guard down, and consider the possibility of there being more to life than mind-blowing, non-committal sex, Bekah reveals a side of herself Zandor doesn’t want to see.
Was he right to avoid entanglements, or has he already fallen to hard to let her go?
Holy hotness! Zandor is absolutely scorching! M.J. Fields has turned up the heat with Zandor’s story, delivering a novel that is intense and addictive! Bekah and Zandor were a great match and they fit right in with the rest of the Steel crew. Zandor is just as protective, possessive, and demanding as his brothers, with a dominant edge that made him feel a bit grittier. While she definitely had a snarky, independent side, Bekah also had a fragility that brought a lot of emotion to the story. Her good heart and need for acceptance gave her an easy relatability that made my investment in her happily ever after effortless. Zandor and Bekah’s shared stubbornness lent itself to some serious friction. Their incredible tension, passionate arguments, amusing banter, and ridiculous antics had me grinning and allowed me to lose myself in the emotional rollercoaster that was their journey.
“None of these people adhered to any rules or boundaries. They crossed lines left and right and I – loved it. I was free here.”
I absolutely adored Bekah and the evolution of her character. Initially, I enjoyed how badass and fierce she seemed to be. She was witty and sarcastic, capable of holding her own with the Steel men, but there were moments of hesitation that hinted at another side to this girl. M.J. Fields carefully unraveled Bekah, allowing readers to discover just how multifaceted this character really was. As the novel progressed, M.J. Fields orchestrated some serious character growth, delivering a heroine you couldn’t help but feel deeply for. Zandor was just as complex a character. In the beginning I seriously wanted to slap him. He was arrogant and I truly enjoyed watching Bekah take him down a notch or too. I was pleasantly surprised to see his lust for her turn into something more significant as her circumstances brought out his caring, kind, and protective side. By the end of the novel, there was an undeniable sweetness mixed in with his gritty alpha personality that made him irresistible.
“I will strip you down in every way I want and then build you back up. You’ll do as I say and you’ll like it.”
Like the previous books in the series, Zandor was more than a sexy romance. M.J. Fields writes the romance against the backdrop of a greater issue. In this case, Bekah’s personal struggle. The result was a stunning story of personal growth and self-acceptance that made Bekah and Zandor’s love story even sweeter. The Steel family contrasted so significantly with Bekah’s own family that I couldn’t help but compare the two. This dichotomy served to only further increase my appreciation for the Steel family and the values and love they share. Their dynamic is absolutely beautiful and M.J. Fields expertly captures that sense of comfort, familiarity, safety, and belonging. The Steel men are as cocky as ever in Zandor and it was so much fun watching their kickass women bring them to their knees. Put all the Steel (and soon-to-be-Steel) women in one room and things are guaranteed to get hilarious, giving this story a sense of humor to balance the more serious side. Zandor was sexy, poignant, and a ton of fun, a great addition to this addictive series!
