Die hard bachelor falls in love and he thinks about it a lot. Oh yeah, he thinks about making love a lot too. Get it? He thinks about the same thing over and over. I couldn't finish the book.
She doesnt set the scene. He looks at every part of her body and then she looks at his, then they think about it. There is no plot. Oops yes there is, they kiss and get busy and fall in love like the other 2 former die hard Steels.
Bet the other brothers and cousins are also confirmed bachelors. Sounds familiar... The Westmorelands with their twenty-eleven relatives.
Sweet peace, I am not going anywhere near her books.

Here is the review:
I have read most of Brenda Jackson's books, but this one was just ok. I would probably give it a 2.5. She has other books that I have enjoyed much more and even re-read.
It was really tiresome to continue to hear about the "Bad News" Steele Men who are basically manwhores. The book doesn't lack for sex. Jonas is a master. It was like he did all the giving trying to prove his prowess, or confirm his reputation, and Nikki was just on the receiving end. Not that it is terrible, I just never felt the sense of them coming together on any level but a sexual one. It felt very shallow somehow.. Then, there is the successful woman who doesn't believe a Steele man could possibly be interested in her, could he? The whole "these men are gods, and the women who tame them" theme is a bit boring. I skimmed through a bit of this book. The one redeeming quality is when Jonas finally decides he truly love Nikki. The book begins to get more interesting and less repetitive. BUT, this doesn't occur until almost the end of the book, 95% into the book.
Not a bad read, but I hope, other Steele Men let their genuine feelings be known earlier in the book rather than let the woman feel as though she is no more than his next conquest.
I feel like the North Carolina Steeles have more of a storyline, more emotion, etc. than the Phoenix Steeles.
