If there's one book you read this week, make it Emily Eck's Steel & Ice

Title: Steel & Ice
Author: Emily Eck
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 26, 2014

Elle isn't looking for love. Hardened by years on the streets, she's learned to take care of herself by covering her heart with ice and keeping men at arm's length. She's not weak and she doesn't need to be saved. But she wouldn't mind getting laid a little more often.

J's covered his heart with steel. He owe's his life to an MC that is not what it seems. Since he knows his priority must be to the club's demands, no matter how illegal, he decided a long time ago that love didn't fit anywhere in his life.

A not so chance, but definitely hot encounter on a crowded dance floor should be enough for J, but he can't seem to stay away from Elle. As she begins to melt his steel, and he manages to chip away her ice, his forced loyalty to the MC threatens to tear them apart. When the risk becomes greater than J expected, will love be enough to keep Elle from freezing her heart to him?

Beauties!  Is there anything better than powering up your Kindle and starting that new book you've anxiously been waiting to read only to find that you're halfway through already and start to slow yourself down because you realize this is a book you need to pace yourself with.  You know that book, right?  It's too good to put down; you realize you've been sucked in to this book with no hope of being able to do a damn thing until after you've completely finished the book- because, let's face it...nothing else could possibly be as important as what happens to Elle and J...

And as if that wasn't bad enough, there was a novella (J Speaks) that I couldn't possibly set aside for a later time to read.  No, it's only a novella, right?  I'll be done with that before you know it...  Meanwhile, my husband and kids have to have peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner because I never got anything out of the freezer to cook.  

See that, I've already gotten carried away and I haven't even really said what I think about this story.  I loved it.  I loved almost every single thing about it.  Elle reminded me of me, quite often- no, not in appearance- but in terms of her quirky personality, her little habits, her close friendships...maybe one or two more things, but you get the idea, right?

I was a tiny bit surprised when the book ended- I won't ruin the ending for anyone, however- HOLY CRAP!  Like I said, I needed to click on J Speaks immediately after I finished reading Steel and Ice, it was sooooooo good!  I'm giving this book 4.5 stars- it would have been a 5, but there were a few typos and sentences I had to read over a couple times to make sure I was reading correctly- very few, but they were still there.  Fortunately, these are easy fixes and totally didn't distract me enough to give up on this amazing story.

I can't wait to read what's next in this couple's future.  I'm praying for a happy ending, these two characters truly deserve one!

Emily is a Midwestern Gal, but could be anywhere as you read this. She gypsy's the country, as well as south of the border. Adventure feeds her soul, and offers great writing material. She loves kids and working with teens, but can only handle caring for four-legged furry friends. A crazy dog and laid back cat have trained her to be their partner in life. Vices include Swedish Fish, ignoring chores in favor of reading, and caring too much for the people in her life. She chose to write this bio in third person as she is an Aries, and found writing in first person ended up with her writing an excessively long life story. Aries like to talk about themselves. It is something Emily is working on being more mindful of.
