“Carly, Sono caduta per voi, Jase,” he smiled sweetly. It had to be Italian, and it was even more beautiful coming out of his mouth.

“And what does it mean?” my voice was just over a whisper.

“I have fallen for you,” Jase blushed.

Jase and Carly’s Beginning, and that is exactly what it was, a short intro to the Men of Steel series. Carly was goofy, nerdy and innocent compared to Jase who is tattooed, pierced and liked to share the love. They don’t have much time before Carly leaves for

Omg, so I was half way done with my review and my computer decided it needed to reconfigure and it shut itself down, so that was it zip....GONE!! Got to hate it when that happens, so this one may be shorter.

This book completely confused me. I'm serious. By the cover and the name, I automatically assumed it was going to be about some badass MAN, maybe ex-army or something who refinds his best friends sister that he always secretly crushed on or something and then feel in love or something. Yes,

I'm so glad this novella was free. It was a very frustrating read. The dialogue for the first half of the book did not sound like it was coming from college-aged kids. There were very few contractions..."Yes, I am just cold" instead of "Yes, I'm just cold." I would have like to have seen more -you're- instead of you are. Then, towards the second half of the story, I started seeing more contractions, but without the ('). There were several "cant" and some "your" when it should be "you're" and the ...more

Thankfully, this one was a freebie!! I'm giving it 2 stars for two reasons... first, all of the errors!! The incorrect use of words or phrases was crazy (ie Yay=excited and Yeah=agree). Second, I realize it was a novella but didn't expect it to end at 62% or leave us hanging as it did! I did like the characters and the premise and I am interested in learning more about the Steel boys but I'm not sure I'd spend money to read about them when the author can't take the time to have her work edited.

Mrs. Fields you are such a TEASE! I can not wait for the rest of this series! I grew up on the Jersey Shore and it was so refreshing to read about where I hung out and how I spent every summer on the boards. :)

Normally I don't read novellas as they're just to short for me but when I saw the cover I knew I had to read it. Jase he's just all sorts of bossy, and I like it, "Carly, it's Jase. I must have grabbed yours by mistake. Meet me at the beach so we can switch phones, ten minutes." He seems to always get what he wants, I'm not sure if I like that in a man yet, "yes, I told you I wanted to hang out, and by that I meant you and me, not everyone else." Jase is a sarcastic little s***, "yes Carly, my m ...more

This is the first book by MJ Fields that I ever read (originally in 2014). It was the start of my love affair for the Men of Steel. The cover caught my eye, but the writing captured my heart!

Carly is socially awkward. Her innocence and naivety is endearing. I LMAO with the chemical hair removal scene .. priceless.

Jase is an alpha, tattooed hottie .. tattoos, pierced nipples and Prince Albert oh my!

More #MOS is required STAT!!

OMG! What utter rubbish. No storyline whatsoever, Carly sounded and acted about 12, calling her breasts "ta ta's" and her vagina "who who"?!!!
The book had so many mistakes in it and half the time I didn't even have a clue as to what they were talking about. Not even worth 1 star!

Carly is on vacation visiting her father and while hanging out with her cousin Abe, she met this hot, gorgeous, messy black hair, beautiful eyes, dimples and all, Jase, Abe's best friend. But Jase has this beautiful but crazy girlfriend. Jase couldn't help his attraction to the beautiful yet innocent Carly. So, they started off "fake" dating. Then Jase broke up with his crazy gf and made it official with Carly.

There definitely is a lot of humour in the story that I enjoyed.

I actually read the new and updated book of "Jase" and this is included in that but I am still going to give my thoughts.

In this book, we are introduced to Carly, Jase and the rest of the Steel men. Carly is a college student taking her summer break out at her dad's in New Jersey. She goes to college out west where she lives with her mom. Jase is a tattooed, bad ass alpha male who owns a tattoo shop with his mom and brothers. When Carly and Jase meet, it is not under

I just finished Men of Steel and I am really not sure what to think of it. I liked it but there were things that I disliked. Carly is home from college to visit her dad. She is hanging with her cousin Abe when she meets Jase. Jase is dating his on and off again girlfriend Pam. Crazy psycho Pam is what Jase calls her. Carly is an innocent girl and doesn't want to be with someone else's guy so she tries to ignore him but really does like him. He pretends to date Carly and because he really does wa ...more

OMG... yes I totally read this book out of order but OH WELL!! This is the PERFECT intro Carly and Jase. This gave their whole back story on how they meet for the first time. Let me just say when reading this book I could totally relate to Carly when I was at that age and meeting the first person you are totally taken with. There are A LOT of LOL moments and the chemistry between Jase and Carly is off the charts HOT from the very beginning.

If you are just planning on reading this book then I don’t know if I would recommend it. As a standalone it has a few problems, mainly the cliffhanger ending. But it is a great lead in to the rest of the series.

In this book Jase & Carly meet for the first time and Jase is a little smart a$$. However they are attracted to each other and can’t seem to stay away from the other. But I have to say that my favorite part of this book is taking a trip to the tattoo parlor and meeting all of the brot

With a cover like that and the name Jase Steel, I figured this quick read was a no-brainer. Boy was I wrong. It almost felt like we jumped into the middle of a story and never really go the full explanation. Maybe because it is such a short book or novella, there was some skimping on character development.

The characters Jase and Carly are supposedly in their twenties, but their actions towards each other are very immature. Jase was this hot, tattooed and pierced lady killer, it was hard to pict

This is a great introduction to the Steel men and what a intro it is.

We meet Jase and his sexy brothers has wonderful mother and the woman thats gonna knock him on his ass when he is least expecting it.

I dont really read novellas they are too short for me, but having the next book in the Men of Steel series ready to read when i finished the novella helped.

I really enjoyed this quick intro to the Steel boys and Carly i like the characters personalities and there interactions with each other.

Jase Steel is considered a bad boy by his reputation yet he's a really good guy with a bad rap. Jase is the most beautiful girl from across a bonfire and wonders why he's still with his girlfriend. Jase learns from his best friend Abe that it's Abe's cousin Carly. Carly is awestruck by Jase especially since she hasn't dated anyone before now. Carly would rather that no one in her family know about her attraction to Jase especially her father. Will Carly see past Jase's bad boy reputation? What m ...more

I think I got the version that had all the errors in? It's a OK story and it was good enough for me to look into the others in this series. The way it read, I thought the girl was in high school not going back to College and at first the guy was coming across as a teenager but nether of them are. The author just needs to tighten up her writing and watch her errors and I think these are going to be great books. JMHO!

Good story but a little confusing at times. I look forward to learning more about these characters. :)
At 37% I gave up! Very juvenile. The characters seemed more to be around 15. I'm not going to rate officially, but I would give it 1.5 stars if I did.

Carly is home from college to visit her dad when she meets Jase. Carly is young and really doesn’t know the way of the world and when she meets Jase, he has a girlfriend and is flirty with her. I didn’t like that to begin with. I’m not into cheaters and I felt like this was where it was going to go. Grant it, Jase and Pam are on and off again but I felt that wasn’t right. At this point where they are on again, he pretends to have a fake date with Carly.

WTF??? Really.

You should read this book, and others by M.J. Fields, if:

- You don't care about the misuse or outright absence of proper punctuation.
- You don't mind not knowing what the hell is going on.
- You enjoy reading about chin faces and especially love it when someone shakes their head yes.

This was seriously the worst "book" I have ever read. But don't take my word for it. See if you can make any sense of it -

I don't normally read novellas simply because they're not long enough to tell a story. This one however, is an introduction to the series so I made it a point to read it first. I'm glad I did, it gave me the proper intro to the characters and who is who.

Yes, there are some grammar issues in here. I've read three installments in this series and none of them are error free, but I chose to read these for entertainment, not to nit pick.

So this is the prequel novella to the series, clearly setting up the premise that each of these brothers have a very skeptical view of relationships, are complete manwhores and I would guess the notion that the harder they play the harder they will fall. No question – that message came across loud and clear. It felt like an episode of Jersey Shore in written form. Young, overly sauced guys looking for no strings for the night. This book was a little hard to follow because each chapter was writte ...more
