This is a wonderful story about a divorced detective, Bryan (aka "Handsome"), who after 4 years (following his divorce) of living with his brothers, decided to finally get a life. When an old friend (Vaughn) calls him to house sit for him while he is away and that he would be sharing it with "Duncan", he leaps at the chance - only to find out that his roommate is not a "he" but a gorgeous babe!

When Val and he first meet, she thinks he is Vaughn's gay lover (the friend

All books in this series are stand-alone but to get to know the characters better, I recommend that you read them in order.


This second book STEAL is a romance between an ER nurse and a detective. She is not a virgin but she is inexperienced. He is a divorced man but he is not a man-whore. He was married to his high-school sweetheart for 16 years. After their marriage ended, he had a few hook-u

Amazing hero!! Loved them both, although i prefer when my heroine has more self esteem.
No cheating, no OP scenes. Both not virgins.
Crazy ex-, very crazy.

Bryan and Valerie burned up the pages in this steamy, romantic and funny story. That's not all. They really had to fight against some crazy bad karma. I'd rather have had less of the whole other woman issue but I still enjoyed the rest of the story. Bryan stayed true.. That's the one thing that made it tolerable for me. The hits kept coming, one thing after another but what held strong was their devotion to each other. From their first encounter they had an almost electric pull that they couldn' ...more

Okay, my first read of Mayra's was Lie, book one of this series and I really enjoyed I was excited to get to read this.

Book one was really good, but this book blew it out of the water. I freaking love Bryan!! He is what book boyfriends are made of. . . and Mayra gave him the perfect gal in Valerie. I loved that I didn't guess what the conflict was going to be and was surprised with by twists in the storyline. This story grabbed right from the beginning and didn't let go .....even the end

One of the best books I've read this year, as far as grabbing my attention and not letting me go, and surprising me with twists when I'm sure I have it figured out.

I have a soft spot for alpha male heroes who see their woman and don't let go. And who can be bossy. Oh, and who are cops. Haha. Bryan was this 110%. I also have a soft spot for sweet, vulnerable, but yet strong and sassy (in a cute way) heroines and Val fulfilled this. The drama was mostly from outside sources and they knew how to t

Steal by Mayra Statham a heart stealing five-star read. This is the second book in the Right men series and starts with a quote from Hitch, how could you not love that, the quote is ‘Never steal. But if you do, steal away from bad company.’ I loved Lie the first book in the series, and this book just compounds on how amazing it is. We get to know the Wright brothers better with each book, and those boys are worth getting to know.

Bryan and Val stole my heart! I loved their instant chemistry, that they tried so hard to deny. Val has been hurt and abandoned by family and former boyfriends, so she is very cautious around Bryan, even if she can't deny how hot and masculine he is. Bryan had been married in the past, but knows that was a mistake, one he doesn't want to make again. There's something about Val that he can't resist though. Two wary people fighting against falling in love, while trying to protect themselves from o ...more

Mayra Statham continues to prove over and over again why I don't need to read the synopsis before I one click her books. I've loved every book of hers and this one was no different.

When I read Lie I fell in love with Marcus and his brothers Garrett and Brian and their best friend Donnie. They're all close and so very different.

I don’t really know where to start with this. I think this has to be one of my favorite series this year to STEAL my heart, hands down this is going down in my top 10 of 2017!!! So STEAL is book 2 in the Right Men Series and it’s about Bryan Wright who is a sexy detective and Valerie Duncan who is an ER nurse. Did I mention that Bryan is sexy?

Valerie is our strong, stubborn, driven woman. She has come to realize that you can only depend on yourself in this world. Valerie has become a product of her environment having been routinely let down by family and lovers she is now guarded when it comes to relationships.
Bryan has been down the relationship road and it has never worked out , being a police officer leading an unpredictable life can be very rough on your personal life or lack th

I love this author's books and the way she lays them out. The story just grows on you and takes a life of it's own. The characters are real and honest and down right silly. The women are strong and even as screwed up as they may be they are secure in it and always willing and working to heal but recognize and acknowledge their imperfections. Her Alphas and yes they are alphas indeed, are sweet and tender when needed but strong and protective and dominate and true blue. In this case we have Bryan ...more

Mayra Statham knows how to always give wholesome stories with a different variation always. Each time she does this it's always nothing short of the best. She has done it yet again Ladies.

This book stole my heart a few pages in. At first it was the plenty LOL moments then the Amazing Dialogue and Hilarious banter. The Absolute Bonus was watching these two fight the chemistry and then watch them fall in love. It was beautiful and so warming. It's so hard to finish a book this good.

Steal (Right Men Series - Book 2) - Mayra Statham

I was given this book for an honest and unbiased review.

My first book by Maura Statham was the first in this series Lie, but it certainly won me over to Mayra Stathams 's writing and now I've just finished Steal, the second in this series.

Valerie is an ER nurse, sassy and smart, but hasn't had the best start in life. Not the best family background and her best friend and roommate Vaughn shared a similar familial situation. Detective Bryan Wright

Bryan was an awesome alpha male who had great lines and lots of sex appeal. He was humorous and I loved the way he gradually broke down Valerie's walls. I liked the relationship he had with his brothers and his partners. Bryan fought hard to win Val's trust and I loved that.

Cop Bryan does a friend a favour by moving into his house whilst he is away. His friend fails to tell that Val also shares the house. Val hasn't had an easy life and has had to work hard to get where she is and not become another statistic.

Val and Bryan are drawn to each other from the start and they fight their attraction for each other for a brief time before giving in. However a combination of forces tries to keep them apart.

I warmed up to these characters quickly - I liked Bryan in 'Lie'. He

Steal is a Great addition to the Right Men Series. Steal is Bryan and Valerie's Story. With one of the funniest introductions him flirting with her thinking she is his friend's girl, her thinking that he is batting for the other team, you just couldn't help but think that yeah this is going to be one hell of a ride.

Book two in the Right Men Series by Mayra Statham was definitely right up my street. I loved Bryan and Valerie aka Handsome and Blondie. Bryan was passionate, fiercely protective, handsome - of course and with just the right amount of humour to his personality he was the full package. Valerie was sweet and sassy, and although at first she was very guarded, she soon opens up to Bryan. The story was full of passion and intensity and the speed at which their relationship develops really suited the ...more

This was a smoking hot read from beginning to end. One look at each other led to a different misconception between the pair but the chemistry was sizzling. Bryan and Valerie have pasts that makes them leery with their trust but as the saying goes where there's smoke there's fire and with these two it's a blazing inferno.

Never steal, but if you have to steal, steal someone's heart.

Steal is a funny, sexy delicious story with sprinkles of suspense. The banter between the Wright brother, grandma Nicola who has no filter and fiesty Valerie will definitely keep you entertained.

Loved the beginning introductions when

Detective Bryan Wright met ER Nurse Valerie. I was hooked! The instant chemistry was explosive, even though they constantly got c*ckblocked by his brothers.

Their devotion to one another stood strong through

Bryan and Val.

Val had a rough start in life. Her parents were no exactly cut out to be parents. Vaughn was in the same situation. They became best friends and room mates. When Vaughn goes away, he asks Bryan to move in, the only problem was Bryan and Val had no idea about each other.

From the first moment they met you could feel the chemistry sizzling but Val, as stubborn as she was, was not giving in. With Courtney, Bryans Ex Wife, on the loose, Val gets a bit more than she bargained for. Lets
