★★★★ 1/2! Steal My Heart (stand-alone). A fast paced, entertaining & very sexxxy romance following Gabe Master & germophobic Maggie on the run from villains!

“If you don’t get off my lap right now, you’re going to be naked and riding me until this thing in my pants calms down!”

This is a stand-alone, but I recommend this reading order:
Book 1: Steal My Heart
Book 2: Surrender My Love

Told from dual POV’s Steal My Heart offers lots of sexual tension and sizzling sex, d

“This man was her captor, yet he freed her soul; he’d caused her agony, yet also delivered peace; every touch was euphoric pleasure, and still every word promised pain and heartbreak…”


I was approached by the author Lisa Eugene to read and review this book, I read the blurb and thought why not? let's give this one a go, and I was so glad I did. 'Steal my heart' is a fast paced, well written, steamy romance with plenty of action and hilarious characters to entertain its r

“I’m a bad man, Maggie."

The heart is sometimes the last to speak the truth

I'll be honest, when I read 'ex-Navy SEAL' and 'dirty boy' in the book's description, I knew I'd be all over this. What? Shallow?! I think not!

Right...moving on then.

This was my first book by Lisa Eygene, and after finishing this, I can say it won't be my last.

Maggie was endearingly quirky. She's a nurse and a germaphobe of obsessive proportions. I was afraid at first that this would irritate me, but she came off a

I want to post pics and gifs but I am on my holidays and so f****** knackered that I can barely write a review. When I saw Lkay say "I'll be honest, when I read 'ex-Navy SEAL' and 'dirty boy' in the book's description, I knew I'd be all over this. What? Shallow?! I think not!" I was hooked. Yes, me too, Navy Seal, dirty boy, will do it all the time for me.

"The heart is sometimes the last to speak the truth."

This book was so good. If action/suspense plus a hot alpha male with lots of sexual tension does something for you, then this book is totally the book for you. I had the author, Ms. Lisa Eugene, contact me a few days ago offering me an ARC of her book, once I read the blurb, I knew this was a book for me, I however had no idea just how much.

The story begins with Maggie, like the blurb says, a germaphobe on the subway, by force on her way

I loved everything about this book.What do you get when you have a germaphobic nurse who crosses path with an ex Navy Seal turned thief whom you think is a dirty hobo.
This book was so full of laughs ,I had a great time reading it.I loved the heroine who was germaphobic,her dialogues were hysterical.I also loved the hero,he was described so beautifully in the book.The sexual tension between the couple was great and their smexxy times were smoking.I don't think I will look at my kitchen island qui
Action, suspense, and hot, hot sex! What more can a girl ask for? Lisa Eugene ("Eugene") does not disappoint. Her debut novel “Strictly Business” was so good I couldn’t wait to get my hands on “Steal My Heart.” Eugene definitely knows what her readers want - a story of intrigue that includes one gorgeous, dark-haired male specimen that every girl fantasizes about, and bouts of amazing sex. Her heroines are not only likeable; they come across as genuinely real. Maggie’s curvaceous, not tall, has ...more

A germaphobe giving mouth to mouth on a dirty hobo is hilarious. Maggie Lawson is a nurse who works in the OR. I've worked in a hospital for a short year and I found myself becoming more phobic about germs. So I can completely understand Maggie's response. The dirty hobo is fortunately just a disguise for the wealthy former special forces, Gabe Masters.

This story is a romantic suspense with erotic elements. As a first book from Ms. Eugene, it does well with a cohesive plot. Ms. Eugene does a nic

What a freakingly amazing book we have here! I swear, I could not put this down since I started it and I have not slept!


From the moment I started this book, intrigue shackled me and I was in no way complaining! Gabe is such a sexy, raw-animalistic, confident bad-ass hunk of man! I was instantly in awwww of him, then it turned to lust...and I down right fucking love him.

He is an ex- navy SEAL... He's like a fucking ninja...

Thought I'd found a new author but quickly figured out that she can't be bothered with doing the most basic research on what has to be one of the most easily researched occupations in the freaking world. I read the Kindle sample today and have a few observations:

1. Heroine is a mysophobic (fears germs) nurse who cannot stand to be near anything stained or dirty and/or potentially germy including most people apparently. Normally I would venture to say this conceivably puts her out of the runnning
Crazy for Books (Stephanie)
It took me a bit to get my thoughts together to review this book. I had read so many great reviews about it and I had been going through a pretty good reading jag, so I guess my expectations were high. I was a little put out that this book wasn't as good as I thought it would be.

Unfortunately, I felt there were just too many long drawn out descriptions of locations. I know every book has it and needs it so you can get a full picture in your head of what you are reading. But it just felt like th

Gabe is an ex-Seal who has hooked up with Maggie (a sort of germaphobe). What starts out as an innocent act of kindness to an injured hobo, turns into so much more. The characters were likeable, so too the story. It was a hot, sexy suspenseful, action packed romance. Dropped a little right at the end, but otherwise a good read.

I wasn't sure at the beginning I was going to like it, it was kind of slow and Maggie was a bit annoying but the book gained speed and I ended loving it.

Although I would have liked a longer ending, but it was still funny and I enjoyed it a lot.

What happens when you combine a dirty old hobo and an obsessive-compulsive clean freak? Pure Magic!

STEAL MY HEART is a winner! Author Lisa Eugene combines a bit of humor with a healthy dose of steam and ends up with this romantic treasure. I love it when the most unlikely characters turn out to be a match made in heaven.

Nurse Maggie Lawson is truly fanatical about cleanliness; in fact, I would say it pretty much runs her life. The inner dialogue Maggie has with herself is hysterical; she’s a to

Steal My Heart by Lisa Eugene is a novel I normally would not read because the blurb makes it seem much too Harlequin for me. But I'm surprised to tell you that this was a fierce novel!

You have Maggie Lawson, a germaphobe operating room nurse, who can't catch a break one night when she's forced to save a dying homeless man on a subway after being forced to ride said subway because her friend had too many stains in the car. I think Maggie's charact

*There is dubious consent and a little non-con in this book*

Steal My Heart is the story of a germaphobe nurse who gets kidnapped and taken on a wild ride by a hot ex-navy SEAL. Along the way, they’re thrown into danger, deceit, murder, mayhem and betrayal.

So, this review is a little hard for me to write. I have mixed feelings about it. I love military heroes, whether active or retired. I love the idea of falling for someone you wouldn’t normally. I loved the action, the intrigue, the myster

(This actually got a 4.5 on my blog, but unfortunately, Goodreads still doesn't let me have my .5 ratings.)

After reading and enjoying 'Strictly Business' by Ms. Eugene, I decided that I would like to read her second book. I had already made that decision when I agreed to proof read this one before release, so I got to read it before release! I feel special. ;)

Seriously, though… I really enjoyed this one. I found Maggie and Gabe to be more three-dimensional than the characters in Strictly Busines
4.5 stars.

Lordy! What.A.Ride!

An OR nurse and certified germaphobe meets an Ex-Navy SEAL, and life as she knew it goes out of the window. Now dead bodies are piling up, villains are pointing guns to her head, and solving the mystery becomes not only a matter of life and death, it's about securing the benefit of mankind!

This book is fast paced with a lot of action. It's funny, suspenseful and has a quirky, overweight heroine and a hunkydelicious badass hero...aaannnddd lots of sex.

I felt like I needed to wash my hands 10 times when I finished this book, entirely because Maggie would want me to!
This was a dirty book and I loved it! People were just plain messy and there were some nasty (in a VERY good way) sex scenes.
I felt for Maggie as she was kidnapped by her dirty hobo and forced to wear the same dirty clothes after taking several showers to get herself clean.

I loved this book, I loved Gabe, it was apparent from the start that he cared for Maggie, "he sighed. His fingers forked into the waves of her hair. He cradled her head and butted their foreheads. "What am I going to do with you?" he whispered." They have the strangest relationship especially after having sex for the first time together, "she'd reverted back to glaring at him and him growling at her. He was glad.

I give this book 5 stars! (Well in this case roses!) This book is face pace, plenty of action, with steamy sex scenes! This book had me on the edge of my seat and I could not put it down! This is a great read! You should read it! Hang on to your seats though!

Not what I was expecting. The Hero does "jobs" that are illegal. I thought this was an undercover schtick based on the synopsis.

There was a LOT of sex scenes. I'm a story sort of reader so I didn't care for all that pages used on just sex.

After all the crazy events happening throughout the book, I think the ending swept a lot of issues under the rug.

David is great.

Maggie Lawson is an OR nurse at Washington Memorial Hospital and is the cleanest person I have ever heard of. Trust me there are no germs anywhere around this germaphobe. On her way home from work she stumbles into a hobo that really needs some medical attention. Of course Maggie’s luck, she has on scrubs and everyone is now looking at her to give that medical attention to the dirty man lying at her feet.
