My name’s Brooklyn.

Being an ambitious model determined to find that big break that will help get my beauty brand off the ground is anything but easy. As such, I (of course) thought that some late-night drinking would be the perfect thing to calm my growing nerves after landing a huge interview with a potential investor.

But now I’ve just woken up naked and alone in said inv

From the first page of TOUGH AS STEELE, I was hooked. This romantic suspense had everything I was looking for and so much more.

Logan Steele is the head of his family’s enterprise, and is immediately captivated by a beautiful woman at a club. “She was thin, but not the kind that made you worry about her eating habits.” I chuckled at this and knew this would be a book I would love.
Like the kind of alpha male book boyfriends I’m drawn to, Logan makes it his mission to know everything about the wom

I am have anxiously awaited this book ever since Logan Steele made an appearance in Redemption (Skulls Renegade #2). It was 100% worth the wait! Freaking Loved It!

I love this cover and think it fits perfectly with this book! Perfect representation of Logan & Brooklyn.

Tough As Steele is all about falling in love fast and hard. Their chemistry is sizzling and doesn't stop or slow down. Brooklyn is strong and determined and an absolute hoot when she is sloshed. The way that Logan takes care o

My first ever Elizabeth Knox book and I really enjoyed it! I loved the writing style and the plot, the plot.

“It is hotter than Hades out here,” he whispered in my ear. “It’s nothing compared to how hot I am for you, though.” Ooo…he really is a panty dropper, what a keeper, holy crap. I was in way over my head with this one.

Logan Steele is one dreaming alpha male. I loved how he was both a 'criminal' and a good guy, which seems kind of impossible but isn't. He really was a g

AHHHH I love Elizabeth's writing so much! She doesn't skimp on everything and it's so great. This wasn't a very long book, but she made every single word count. We got to see so much of Brooklyn and Logan's lives and personalities. She even does an amazing job with the supporting characters, we get the perfect amount of who they are to really make this story special. There was the perfect amount of bad, good, dirty, sexy, scary, and the unknown, it was just perfect!

From the first minute Logan spots Brooklyn at one of his clubs, he knows there’s something special about her and he has to get to know her. The Steele brothers know what they want and they go after it. That’s part of what has made Logan successful in both his legitimate and shady business enterprises. Brooklyn is attracted to Logan when she meets him, but she’s not looking for a relationship along with everything else going on in her life. Not only does she have her modeling career and

I freaking loved this book! Okay, so really HOT, Handsome, and powerful Logan falls for Brooklyn, a girl that got a second chance at life and is taking advantage of it, immediately after seeing her. A night at a bar, an unfiltered best friend, and a little alcohol courage get Brooklyn the best night of her life. She hooks up with Logan and has the best sex she's ever had. What she doesn't expect, is what happens after.

This story had me hooked from the beginning. I read most of it pretty fast, I

I voluntarily reviewed and advanced reader copy of this book. Another amazing read from Elizabeth, you won’t be disappointed. This story is full of smoldering hot chemistry, sexy and sassy. Brooklyn waiting to meet with an investor to help boost her makeup line, little does she know that the man she will be meeting with is none other than the man she slept with the night before. Logan Steele is sexy, hot, gorgeous and caring, but there is a dangerous side to him as well. When he saw her at the c ...more

"Logan was fire, he was electric, he made me doubt everything my mind was telling me."

Getting glimpses of The Steele brothers in previous books made me want to meet them again, and I was not at all disappointed!! Logan and Brook are hot, and the angst was off the charts, which made it an intense page turner. Suspenseful as all get out, it really showed Logan's power and elevated him to hot alpha status, I loved that about him. Their romance dizzied my head, and grabbed my heart. Laugh out loud m

This is the first book in a new series from this talented author, and what a fantastic introduction this is! When Logan first sees Brooklyn in one of his clubs, he makes it his business to know everything about her. Brooklyn is a model, who is looking for an investor as she branches out into natural make up. No spoilers; this is a definite must read, you will not be disappointed! This is a well written flawless story which is filled with angst, danger, secrets, passion, and love. I look forward ...more

I really liked this book! Brooklyn and Logan are all kinds of sexy together. Logan wanted her as soon as he set eyes on her and he wouldn't stop until she was his. Brooklyn has had a few rough years and now Logan wants to protect her from everything and everyone who can hurt her. When a Steele claims a woman, it's a done deal! I liked the action, bad boys and the family drama! I look forward to the other Steele brothers books!

Tough as Steele is my first book by this author, and I absolutely loved it! It has many different facets to it - the chemistry between Logan and Brooklyn, the intrigue of Logan's business interests, and the plot twists that keep these two bound to each other in unexpected ways. Brooklyn isn't interested in a serious relationship, but she can't seem to resist Logan. When she finds out just who he is, it creates an even bigger dilemma for her. Their story was one hot mega storm, and it kept me ent ...more

Recommended to Dagwood by: A very good friend :-)
This fine young author captures the spirit of adventure, romance and erotica with a vivid imagination that belies her relatively recent entry into the writing world. She is skilled at turning a phrase and conjuring up a mental image of her characters. Her protagonists and antagonists come to life with the subtle additions of fine details that sculpt their personalities. The story ended far too soon and I am eager to continue with the remainder of her series. Fortunately, the author seems to have ...more

Oh my this book was not only hilarious and had you thinking when the shoe would drop. The love at first sight in a club is what happened to Logan the oldest of three, identical twin Jordan and baby brother Christian. And the Mc makes a sneak peek in as well Daisy and Seamus lol and Reed. Well all of the books are fantastic so just grab a copy and enjoy. On to Book 2.

I'm blown away again by this story, I loved getting to know Logan Steele after being introduced to him through the Skulls Renegade Series.

Logan spotted Brooklyn in his brother Christian’s nightclub & demanded information on her. He later sits near her at the bar she doesn’t know who he is but will do soon.
