Chance Coalson loves women. And they love him. Young or old, no woman is immune to his charm.
Except one.
Georgia Haines is the only female volunteer firefighter in Grafton. She’s had a crush on Chance Coalson since he offered her his handkerchief at her momma’s funeral. But she’s smart enough to know that it takes a special woman to tame a charmer like Chance, and there’s

Honey, if you've done half of what I've heard, you'd be dead by now... I'm just saying, if you're looking for something other than permanent, you can get off this porch right now, before I take a broom to your backside. My Peaches don't need no heartache.

He really was the stuff fantasies were made of, too bad she was grounded in reality.

I hadn't heard of this author until I signed up for the blog tour. I love finding new authors through tour hosts, especially when they have several books out:)

This is the third book in this series. Each book in the series revolves around one of the Coalson brothers. This is Chances story. When Chance meets Georgia sparks fly. However Georgia is reluctant to trust any man. Will Chance break down those walls?

Have I mentioned Georgia's a firefighter??? Oh yes:)

A great romantic story with a suspense

Much of the 3rd book in Adam's Steel Tempered happens during the time frame of book 2. These stories while they could probably read as standalone, I wouldn’t recommend that. For continuity and to know what’s going on with who I’d say they should be read in order. Because of this, this review might contain spoilers from the 2 previous stories.

Much of this review will read as book 2’s review. The characters were different but the characters and plot were similar. It’s after Mac and Dixie’s wedding

***5 Star Review***


Georgia Haines has lived a tough life. Her father left her mother shortly after he found out she was pregnant and her mother passed away from cancer when Georgia was just a young girl. She has always felt that she wasn't good enough for anyone just like her mother wasn't good enough for her father. She assumes that if she was ever able to grab a man's attention, she wouldn't be able to hold it forever. Especially a man like Chance Coalson.

Chance Coalson has always been able to

After meeting Chance in the previous books in the series I couldn't wait to read about the Coalson romeo....

Chance and Georgia were fab... This is definitely my favourite book of the 3 so far!!

Georgia has felt alone and abandoned for most of her life and her trust and belief in people to stay with her is understandably lacking.... Even though she has loved Chance for years she can't believe he would ever be interested in her.
Following an accident, she finds herself laid up and in need of help w

Chance Coalson is the resident playboy, as no woman seems to be able to resist his charm. Until her. Georgia Haines has had a thing for Chance since her mother's funeral. But she's convinced herself he would never be happy with a woman like her, so she won't open herself up because it would destroy her when he left. She's the only female volunteer firefighter, and when fire breaks out at the Coalson's construction site, she goes against her boss, and braves the flames to rescue Chance. Now she's ...more

This is the third book in Maggie Adams Tempered Steel Series. I have read all three and they get better each time. The series is about the Coalson Men who own and run a Construction Company. I love a series that has brothers involved and each book has its own story but the entire family continues on in each book. Now the Coalson have someone who wants to destroy them and their company so they are dealing with arson, and trying to protect all whom they loved while trying to figure out who was aft ...more

Not so secret crushes, love unrequited, passion, just some of the words that would best describe this book.
Georgia has lived a life where she has felt loss, from the loss of a father that left her to the mother that died. Worst of all would be the lesson that was left from her mothers passing... All men leave, don't give them your heart. So she lives in solitude and unconnected to any man lest of all the one she craves the most.. Chance.
Chance Colson always gets what he wants and what he wants m

I adored Chance and Georgia's story immensely. Maggie Adams has once again managed to write a romantic story with sexy scenes and witty dialogue. Even better is the mystery of who is out to get the Coalson Family that she has managed to weave throughout the series. Chance is hotness on a stick (let's be honest, all of the Coalson boys are) and Georgia is just absolutely sexy even though she doesn't know it. I love that Maggie brings all of the characters together in her books, everyone is involv ...more

ok I am a little bias with this author but omg, the Tempered Steel series just keeps getting better and better. Chance is holy hotness and knows it, but you don't care , not at all, which is why I love Georgia she's immune to the Coalson men charm, well maybe, but yeah okay not but she doesn't show it, cause truth she's crushef on Chance for forever and feels she doesn't offer enough to tame THE CHANCE.

Having finished reading 'Something's Gotta Give' today.... I was surprised at how quickly I was drawn into the lives of the Coalson brothers again, it's been a few months since I read the first 2 books of the series. Please read books 1 & 2 of the "Tempered Steel" series before picking up book 3, as they all follow one anothers timelines.

I love how all the brothers are getting there own books, it's Chance's turn

Something's Gotta Give is book three in the Tempered Steel Series by Maggie Adams. This book is about Georgia (Peaches) and Chance Coalson, and once again readers will not be disappointed with this story. Peaches is a firefighter and daycare provider who just happens to have a long time crush on Chance. She doesn't believe he could ever feel the same way about her. Little does she know that Chance feels head over heels for her. Through a series of events, Chance is in a position to show her just ...more

Holy hotness! Maggie Adams has done it again with the 3rd book in the must read 'Tempered Steel' series :D ... This page turner is a sexy romantic suspense read, continuing the smokin' hot Coalson Brothers and the fiery, independent women they desire to acquire ;) LOL ... Well-defined characters and an awesome story will keep the reader engaged and wanting more!

Met Maggie Adams at a release party for Melody Dawn's first book! Maggie appeared to be a sweet, fun author, that I was intrigued to know. I purchased her books, then began the process of reading them, she didn't mention that it was a series about SEVEN brothers!

OMG! Maggie did it again! Another Coalson brother to fall in LOVE with! Except he's the "Casanova of the County". This is the 3rd book in her series & there is nothing negative to say about the Coalson family! I like how this story's timeline is also in-between Angel & Sam's story. I love the shy Georgja, she tries to fight her feelings for Chance. She has a fight inside her she has to win to prove she can love not everybody will leave her.

Georgia is an insular woman, a life scared by the pain of losing not just one but both her parents.
A life tarnished by the belief that in order to protect yourself from pain that she watched her mother bear following her father’s departure… you protect your heart, you keep men and in her case that is all men at arms-length but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t feel, that she doesn’t long for more because she does, she is completely smitten by Chance Coalson.
But acting on that …forgive the pun

Review from Abibliophobia Anonymous Book Reviews
I really am hooked on the Coalson brothers. Every book has been good, enjoyable, and has kept my attention. This one is no different. This is the third book in the series. While this could be read as a standalone, I highly recommend you read the books in order. The romance is a standalone, but there is a storyline that does continue throughout the stories.

This is Chance Coalson’s story.

Have you met the Coalson brothers yet? If not your missing out!!
Book three is Chance's story, also known as the town Romeo. Chance loves women, the no strings kinda women that is.
But he's always had a thing for the feisty little firefighter who never seemed interested.

Georgia is a strong woman, she's a firefighter and also runs daycare out of her home. Her childhood was a mess and it's shaped her views on love. She's been in love with Chance Coalson since she was 14 and he helped her through her

Georgia has been in love with Chance for years. She never figured she would have a chance with him. Chance while healing from the fire has decided it was time to make Georgia his. He just needed to convince her of that.
