With only a small clue to the whereabouts of the arsonist that torched his family's business, Lawrence “Lucky” Coalson heads to Las Vegas. While posing as a bouncer, Lucky finds himself ensnared by the lovely bartender, Claudia.

I received this book for free to give my True and Honest Review

Maggie is doing it again where there's tension apprehension including finding their love we'll Brandon's love meets his Soulmate Ana who starts to help Claudia whilst is recovering from a hit and run but Ana has some personal dilemmas, she has twins at home but there's more to it than that. And this is where Brandon starts trying to woo her, which starts going slowly but pretty good that is when one thing after another starts going w

Wow! Maggie Adams has truly outdone herself on Book 4 of the Tempered Steel series- now my favorite story so far, and that says quite a lot, since all her other books are 5 star must reads, IMHO :D Even the word Mayhem in the title gives you a hint how good it will be! Not sure how she does it but this talented author has turned up the heat and added more surprises in this latest thrilling, romantic suspense page-turner. I'm thrilled that the loving Coalson family appears to provide love & s ...more

Favorite Quotes:

For some reason, the two of you keep missing what is perfectly clear to the rest of us. You belong with each other. That's why whenever you're in a room together, the rest of us stand back. We're waiting for the two of you to simultaneously combust from sexual frustration.

That dress is too damn low in front. She's practically falling out of it. I think she's got it on backwards...

My Review:

The underlying storyline gains in density and heft with more intrigue and addi

Ok, so I have read the book twice now- I formed an original opinion that I have to say I have now revised.
This is book 4 in the series and reading them in sequence is important due to the continuation and crossover of storylines.
The book has a lot going on and a plethora of characters that you have to keep a close eye on, they are strong and hold nothing back.
I liked Ana and was glad that Claudia had her around while she recovered but her story was far from simple and adding Brandon into that mi

This is the fourth book in the Tempered Steel series. They must be read in order. Each book is centered around a different Coalson brother finding his love, but there is a continuing story line throughout all the books. Someone is trying to destroy their family.

This is Brandon’s story. With a little of Lucky thrown in and all the other family members as well.

I did really like Brandon and Anna. They are both great. Anna is super shy, but she would do anything for the twins.

The title says it all. This story encompasses both Lucky and Brandon Steel. While one finds love and marriage the other has to deal with family betrayal! Lucky takes Claudia home to met his family and right at the start she causes mayhem wherever she goes. I fell in love with this story, the writing is freakin' phenomenal, it's sensuous and yet sharp-witted. Maggie is an audacious cheeky writer. Can't wait for the rest of this series, write woman, write!

Holy crap talk about a way to end a book, go from having hot sex scenes to let end the book with that.. I absolute love this series of book, so fun and easy/quick reads.

Love Blooms

Can Brandon and Anna make a go of it - I loved watching their love develop and am scratching my head trying to figure out who had it out for this family.

Recommends it for: Everyone
Love, Marriage & Mayhem encompasses both the love lives of two Coalson brothers: Lucky and Brandon. Lucky has been recently married while out in Vegas when he was doing some investigative work into the bad things happening to the Coalsons' business. Wow, did he ever get hooked by a snake, just my opinion, of course. Lucky and Claudia seem to have overwhelming lust for each other, but that's where it ends. She resents him for bringing her back to his small town and he doesn't understand why h ...more

The 4th book in the ‘Tempered Steel’ series is a very quick read but I would strongly suggest that you read the previous books in the series because it's a continuing storyline and characters. Unlike the other stories that focused on a single couple, this story has two brothers – Brandon and Lucky. Brandon’s the brother who brings home the strays and is the care take of the group. Lucky’s back from some Vegas stint with a new wife and she’s a doozy.

Lawrence "Lucky" Coalson heads to Las Vegas to follow up on a small clue to the arsonist, who burned the family business office to the ground. While posing as a bouncer, he finds himself with a strong attraction to the sexy bartender, Claudia, but she's hiding secrets herself, and when he brings her home, it sets serious consequences in motion. Brandon Coalson is every bit as hot as his brothers, but he's more sensitive, so before he sends women on their way, he patches their broken hearts first ...more

I loved this book, watching the family bond always gets me in these books. No matter what they stick together. I know this book was more about Brandon, and he seems like the best one of the group, macho and sincere at the same time. I do have to say I loved learning more about Lucky and his wife and life. Seeing how the brothers were still there for each other even though they disliked Lucky's wife is a rare family bond, and they all stuck together. Especially when Brandon needed their help with ...more

I received a copy of 'Love, Marriage & Mayhem' in exchange for my honest review.

Having finished reading 'Getting Lucky' last week, I couldn't wait to read what mayhem Lucky brought with him after his adventures in Vegas. I can honestly say I was not dissapointed in the least. Once I started reading 'Love, Marriage & Mayhem' I couldn't put it down & soon found myself awake till 3am finishing this book. Please read the "Tempered Steel" series in chronological order, including the Luck

Because I had not read the first few books in the series I was a little lost at the beginning with the family dynamics but this story really took off for me when Anna arrives on the scene. Her sweet and shy demeanor captured my attention and I could not wait to see the romance unfold between her and Brandon. Anna was dealing with the abuse of her brother-in-law while trying to find a solution for her and her two children. Brandon knew Anna was someone special and worked hard to prove his intenti ...more

This series is great, heart warming, sweet, tender, laugh out loud funny and very well written. The characters are so fun to read and easy to relate with.
This book is full of intrigue, heat, adventure, a surprise or two and loads of fun witty, sassy dialogue. It's fast-paced, well written with a story that is just a thrill to read.

Tempered Steel Reading order
1. Whistlin' Dixie
2. Leather and Lace
3. Something's Gotta Give
3.5 Getting Lucky

Another Maggie Adams hit! I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Maggie does an exceptional job of letting you get to know the characters in each of her books. The Coalson brothers are so hot!!! I can't wait for the next book. I'm hooked.

I loved this book! Ms. Adams knows how to pack a punch! That's exactly what she did with this book. She gives us a little more of the Coalson Brothers saga. Brandon stole my heart! This is a must read!!

Very good story

This chapter of the ongoing story of the town had some greater highs but also much lower lows. Lucky is not lucky.
