Sweet and scarred.
Once believing that love can conquer all, Mandee Carlain’s life was then turned upside down and inside out. Her beauty queen good looks and sweet smile always caught the eye of the wrong kind of man. However, as a survivor, she still holds on to hope that one day she will come face to face with the man whose whispered words will give her strength to still believe.
What happens when the hopeless find hope ...at the wrong time?
I have enjoyed many of MJ Fields series. Steel Country is now one of them. So many twists and turns have me guessing throughout the story. A family torn apart with all the secrets and lies. And Gray has so much burden on his shoulders to protect his brothers, he can't move forward in life.
At the beginning, I was unsure how I felt about Grayson. Liked his brothers but Gray was a mystery. He has separated himself from the rest of his family. When he comes back for his brothers wedding, his plan is to get in and get out with no involvement with a particular awful family member. At first he seemed shallow and slightly flaky. However he was honest to who he was. His past blew my mind. And I could not believe he kept this to himself all these years.
Mandee is such a sweet girl with a heart of gold. Her Dad as well as herself need to move on and live her life. That is their goal. Now she runs into Gray and she gets to know him on a friend level. Which is something he never had below. They become close and confide in each other. They find out that fate is what brought them together. I loved her. She was sweet, caring and was never vindictive from what occurred in her past.
The rest of the story unfolds and is shocking. You will root for both characters to end up with that happily ever after. They both deserved it. This book uncovers the rest of the past of The Steel family and made it whole. I am so glad I read this book. Beautiful story with amazing characters.
I rate the book a 4.7 out of 5. This book is essential to read if you have already read the first two books of the Steel Family.
When I have made peace with my anger, released it in tears and screams and allowed my body to float and release the tension, I simply float, eyes closed, kicking my feet ever so often, moving my arms when I feel I should and allow myself to drift toward reality’s shores.
I feel my foot drag across the lake’s floor and sigh as I push my feet down and stand, opening my eyes.
I gasp when I see him, Grayson, standing on the gravel, my dress over his shoulder and a towel in his hand. His square jaw, peppered with a few days’ worth of growth and slightly lighter than that on his head, his jaw is tight, and I see the muscles in it working. His eyes are so deeply connected to mine it renders me almost unmoving.
The way he looks at me is unrecognizable. Angry? Annoyed?
When his eyes leave mine after what seems like an eternity, then move to my lips, I wonder if there is something on them. Then they slowly, very slowly, move down my body. At this moment, I remember I am in a bra and panties, in front of Grayson Falcon, sexiest man alive.
I quickly sink down to a seated position and curl into myself, hiding myself, incredibly insecure and horrifically embarrassed.
“You’re blue, Mandee, and blue isn’t a good color on you. Come on; get up out of there.”
