Finally! I feel like I have been waiting forever for this book. I loved Trey and his tattooed bada**, computer hacking ways in the previous books so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one.
Claudia, who we met in City of Champions, has moved to Pittsburgh to work for the FBI. She feels that she hasn't been given a fair shot to show her skills thanks to her over protective brother (Hello there Wyatt!) and his need to watch over her at all times. While I can understand why (she has Type 1 diabetes) he feels this way, I wanted to reach through the book and smack him on the head. Claudia certainly knows how to take care of herself. She is a smart, strong, kick a** woman who knows what she wants. And she wants to be taken seriously. Even if that means going behind her boss' back to follow a lead that he said she shouldn't follow.
This is where Trey comes in. Knowing that he was doing some work for the Pittsburgh FBI, Jenna asks Trey to keep an eye on Claudia. This results in a very interesting first meeting and the beginning of their love/hate relationship. Luckily for them (and for us readers) the hate part isn't around for too long and they discover that they actually make a great pair in all aspects of their lives. Professionally they work extremely well together and personally they pretty much melted my ereader. You could've cut the sexual tension between Trey and Claudia with a knife.
I found it interesting that even though Trey kept a lot of people on the outskirts of his life, he let Claudia in pretty easily. She grabbed his attention from the moment they met. He became extremely protective of her and was the first woman he had feelings for in almost 10 years. But Trey was still batting some demons from his past which caused him to make some dumb guy decisions.
I just loved Trey and Claudia so much. They balanced each other out so well. They both always seemed to know what the other needed. And that usually meant some fantastic verbal sparring before they were able to compromise. It was so entertaining to read. Claudia hated being treated with kid gloves and as soon as Trey realized that, all bets were off. That doesn't mean that Trey wasn't ridiculously sweet at times, because he really was. And when he finally completely opened his heart to her, it was beautiful.
A Steel Town is not to be missed, especially if you have read the previous books in this series.This was the last book I read in 2015...talk about ending on a good note! It was great to see the whole gang again. We got some great group scenes that reminded me why I love this series so much. The author even laid the groundwork for the next book and I will say this: I NEED IT!
Have you ever received a book or bought a book that you have been so excited to read but could not bring yourself to read it because then the story would be over so quickly? Yup, that would be Steel Town by Chloe Barlow. I first read about Trey and his nerdy ways in the first book Three Rivers and I had been hooked ever since. I have been anxiously waiting his story for what feels like forever and I could not be happier with it (unless I knew Trey personally, because even though he may be my book boyfriend I think Claudia is perfect for him.)
This book continues on from both Three Rivers and Shanghai Wind as Trey and Claudia delve deeper in different cases that affect those they love. I knew that Chloe had to have a great gal in mind for our Trey and I cannot believe how awesome Claudia is. She is both sassy and innocent; strong yet vulnerable. It works so well because Trey is so protective to the point of fault. Her life has been determined by her sickness but she tries her hardest to beat it. It. With Trey, she can be herself and not worry about her illness because he makes her strong.
Trey, having had his share of dark and painful in his past, is a mystery and does not let people in very easily. All that he wants is to find the bad guys and protect those he cares about.; even if he has to skirt the line of right and wrong to do so.
This book has had many ups, downs and so many feels. What I loved most was the suspense and events that kept me guessing on what comes next. The great things about Chloe's writing is the amount of research and knowledge she puts in. She makes sure that she understands any subject she writes about. It was a great story and I cannot wait until the next story.
I was gifted a copy from the author for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are my own and I was in no way compensated
Trey and Claudia were a very layered and diverse couple from the rest.
Both with rough background histories, Claudia has always been been the outsider looking out at everyone and Trey is that misunderstood, enigmatic character that people just can't scratch the surface of what makes him, him.
One thing that stood out for me, was how author Chloe A. Barlow hones in on the topic of diabetes~~ how it can change and affect your life, and how Claudia deals with it but ultimately makes due with it and does not let it rule her.
And also, I enjoyed the topics of family, love, and loyalty play into the story--- as with Trey's past, his shady outlook on love... Claudia's overprotective male family members and her need to break out their meddling ways and make something of herself on her own ... and the risky nature of falling in love on the job, especially when you work in the FBI.
I can't say enough on how much I enjoyed this book and how it captivated me. I could really go on and on! >_<
Over all, an amazing read!!
