This was a dirty talking Alpha good time.

Gage Falcon is the kind of Alpha I enjoy. He is possessive, caring, and has a great heart that he doesn't mind letting show. What makes him even more hotter in my book is the fact he's a single dad raising his son by himself. Brand. So cute. Him and Gage have quite the special bond.
Gage recently uncovered some secrets his ex-wife and his own mother has been keeping from him. He's not taking it too well and has decided to take a vacation and lose himself

This book has high ratings?? I just don't get why!!

There's nothing more that I hate when a man thinks he's a god's gift to women.
This zero because I won't call him a hero was obnoxious piece of sh*t.

"Hammered" was a good reading, but it didn't rock my world, as "The truth about love" duet did!!!
It was a nice story but not something that i haven't read before!!!
Yep, there was a sassy heroine, an alpha male and some serious secrets that made the story enjoyable, but that's it!!!!

Excellent book!! Loved this story and all of its characters. Gage is a straight forward filthy speaking man that takes no shit. Phoenix is a short smart ass woman who can hold her own. They are a perfect match for each other. There's enough sex and drama to keep you entertained the whole time.

SUPERB story!! My copy needed some editing. This book was a spinoff of another series. I can only imagine that those are incredible as well. There were a few scenes that were a bit of a reunion from the other series. Not having read those is a bit annoying, but it didn't detract too badly from this one.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and/or the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.

When I first came across this book and its awesome reviews about a dirty talking, alpha male I thought yes that's for me. Unfortunately Hammered didn't work for me at all. I didn't like Phoenix and I didn't like Gage. That means this should have been a DNF but being that this was my 3 book of the New Year I made myself deal with it and continued on. I'm sorry to say it never got better for me. I didn't enjoy the writing and I felt no connection between the H/h.

This is the perfect book if you like your heroes possessive, dirty talking, protective and a little on the damaged side. The heroine is petite but one tough cookie. She’s not afraid to step into a bar fight or take on this heroes villains.

There is not a lot of angst between this couple, but there is plenty regarding his family. There is most definitely other woman drama but it’s made clear from the very beginning that Gage has no desire for her. The sex is out of this world steamy with

Can two people who are headed to a new path come meet at the crossroads and continue down it together. That is what you need to find out when Gage Falcon meets Phoenix Star.
At first glance Gage is taken by the spunk and Sass of Phoenix Star. Looking to get back out there Gage has many obstacles that he needs to overcome but with the strength of his family and friends he might be headed in the right direction.

MJ Fields had straight up ruined me for all other book boyfriends. Gage Falcon is the man we all want. He possesses all of the traits we women want, no need in a man.

He's smart, successful, smokin hot and will have your ovaries exploding upon instant contact. Single dad's are hot! Just sayin.

As always Ms. Fields kept me entertained from page one, the best part was having the Steel men show up. Mmmmm.... Zandor Steel. Need I say more.

Falcon's Landing is supposed to be a refuge. Idyllic setting to just get away and tune out the troubles of the world. What happens when Gage Falcon tries to relax but finds a woman who pushes all his buttons? She irritates him, doesn't take his sh*t, she's intelligent, and turns him on like no other woman ever has. What starts out as a way to get her out of his system, turns into a unique relationship that both of them admit isn't about love. Yeah, right!

You loved Men of Steel, Jase, Cyrus, Zandor, Xavier, Momma Joe, Kat, and all things dirty taking and hard loving, about the Steel Brothers.
You loved Ties of Steel, Abe, Dominic, Sabato, and their alpha dominant ways.
You got rocked by the Rockers of Steel. Memphis Black, Finn Beckett, River James, Billy Jeffers and begged for more.
I gave you The Match Duet, Kat, long time tattoo artist at Forever Steel on the Jersey Shore, and you loved her, okay maybe not her, but her epic tale of online dating

(I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review)

I don't know how she does it - MJ Fields just knows how to write men in a way that just makes me fall for them time after time. First it was the Caldwell Brothers and their friends, the Men of Steel, Trae of the Seattle Stallions, and now Gage Falcon. He uttered words that I really should've found repulsive and cringe-worthy, but I found myself having a decidedly different reaction to them. I love a romance between two damaged people and MJ Fie

4 Too hot stars

Let me start off by saying I have never read anything by M.J. Fields before, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Now I am asking myself 'WHYYYYY have I not read this author before!!"

Hammered is a stand alone that will be part of a series about the Falcon brothers. This is also a companion series to the Men of Steel books (which I now cannot wait to devour)!

Gage Falcon's life was turned upside down after he divorced his wife. Now he lives his life with iron control, and no desire to ever get in a serious relationship ever again. Phoenix Star's heart was broken, and now she doesn't trust any man, so she's concentrating on becoming the person she's destined to be without help from anyone. The night she meets Gage, she writes him off as a man whore, while insulting him. This doesn't chase Gage off, in fact, it only spurs him on to get her into his bed ...more

Wow! this isn't a rollercoaster read or a read with angst, this is two people getting their lives under cotrol,figuring out the next step and in the process finding love.

When you get past the fact that almost every noun and verb is preceded by f*ck and that the hero and heroine have ten times more sex than conversation, this book manages to work itself into a pretty good love story.

Gage Falcon is sex personified!!
And Phoenix Star doesn't stand a chance at resisting him!
Their attraction is instant and you feel the pull between them completely.

Hammered is a sexy story with a rough around the edges alpha and a feisty, sweet heroine. First off, I have to say that I LOVE that Phoenix is Asian. It's not every day that romances feature Asian heroines, so it's a treat that I get to read about someone of my own race in a romance. Secondly, I love that she's just plain awesome, sweet, funny and feisty AF! She's more than equal to Gage, the dirty talking, rough around the edges man she falls in love with.

A story that has a lot of things going on. First you have Gage Falcon who is part owner of a company that he has helped turn around into a multimillion dollar business. He has some anger but you are made aware of the reasons why as the story goes along. The reasons deal with ex-wife, and mother whom both knew for years that boy he had been raising was not his son. Both of them are not the nicest people and when Gage meets and falls for Phoenix Star who is new in town and also a bartender. The cl ...more

So, at first I was a little skeptical because sometimes filthy-mouthed alpha males can just become crude assholes and I haven't read a male character like this in a long time, BUT hot damn....Gage is a sexy MF. And he's honest and caring and is in a position not many--and I mean a very small handful of men, would put themselves in and it made me love him even more.

Phoenix. Love her. She was strong and feisty and took no shit. I also loved the diversity of the characte

The opening to this book had me cracking up!! Gage does hook ups and at the bar Phoenix works part-time, Phoenix is a beautiful fire cracker!! Well Gage likes what he sees behind the bar, but is waiting for his hook up.

Absolutely wonderful! I loved this story. You have a sexy alpha single Dad and a spunky man eater bartender. Gage and Phoenix are great characters who will immediately find a place in your heart.

Working two jobs to raise money for school, Phoenix doesn't have time for players. Having been cheated on by her ex she has her guard up and put men on the back burner. When a hot, sexy man walks into her bar it's very obvious he's looking for one thing and one thing only.

He also runs a million dollar construction company. He will get down and dirty with his worker and help train them the way he wants them to work.
