There were only three things I cared about: women, money and booze. That is, until saw Selena Jacobson, a goddess in the flesh if I’ve ever seen one.

I wanted her from the very first second that I laid my eyes on her. Something carnal inside me flipped a switch, and I knew she would be mine. When life threw us both a big curveball, I made her mine, in every way po

Elizabeth Knox writes another emotional romance! You can’t help but feel connected to her characters. This should be read following book 1 in the Steele Brothers series.

Christian Steele is as alpha as they come, he exudes confidence and you don’t know he your worst nightmare until it’s too late! Selena is strong and confident and will do anything for her family! She has given up so much just so they could have it all. I loved how even after everything that she has been through she is still sass

I had liked Logan Steele but boy, Christian Steele was even better!! I loved him, even though he had a much darker side than Logan. Even though he was arrogant and a pain in Selena's ass, just like her, I loved it. He was both incredibly sexy and incredibly sweet at times.
He sure had his moments but I couldn't help but love him. He barely knew Selena but he made sure she was safe, protected her and her family at all costs. I loved that side of him.

With how great this one started...I think I just expected more.

2.5/3 stars ⭐ ⭐⭐

What I loved...

Christian was possessive and protected and caring. He had his banter come backs down to a science.

I loved that his Cinderella was a fighter. She wasn’t weak.

I enjoyed the darkish nature of these men as well. It felt like some crazy good mafia story

What I didn’t like

After what happen to Selena...I expected way more emotion. From someone who has personally experienced it... you don’t just go back to d

Christian had me laughing in Tough as Steele but I fell in love with him in Stripping a Steele. He might be an arrogant cocky SOB but he will protect you with everything he has. Selena is a firecracker who will tell you like it is and is stronger than she knows. This was not your normal hearts and flowers romance.

They meet months ago at an art gallery but they didn’t get to know each other till Christian came to Selena rescue on her worst day. And in the words of Christian – “No one f—ks with my

I have always loved all the books that Elizabeth does but she really has outdone herself. This book was amazing, I loved how Selena was so strong and how she just transforms into a new confident lady when she hits the stage. The fact that Christian can not resist her at all, he is the perfect amount of controlling and the fact that Selena is so sassy and tries to go against him is perfect. Overall I loved the book I think it is defiantly a must read

I hadn’t read book one when I ended up getting this book but realized quickly that I didn’t need to read it to enjoy this story.

I liked the storyline involving Selena and Christian. The writing was what draws you into the story from the very beginning and keeps you entranced through to the very end. I started and finished this book in one day.

Selena Jacobson has been raising her siblings since she was 17 and her dad died. Her mom ran off after the birth of 3 year old Ellie and Selena works hard to try and provide for them but money is tight. She works as a school secretary during the day and on Friday nights she dances at the strip club, Russo's.

Christian Steele works with his brothers at Steele Enterprises as the "muscle" of the group. When his brother organizes a meeting Russo's with Matteo Varca, Christian comes face to face with

I absolutely LOVE the Steele boys and their girls!!! Their stories keep evolving, and I cannot help but to fall in love with all of them in each new story!!!

This is the second book in Elizabeth Knox’s Steele Brothers Series. I absolutely fell in love with the Steele boys in book 1, and I could not wait to read book 2. I would absolutely recommend reading Book 1, “Tough As Steele” first, although it’s not a must-do. I am simply recommending it because it is such an amazing story and you get some

If you read Tough As Steele then you’re no stranger to the Steele brothers. They're hot, hunky and all alpha and barely toe the line of legitimate dealings in the business empire left to them by their father. Although working hard to set their business on the right side of the law, they still have some shady dealings and Christian is the muscle of the company. He first laid eyes on Selena months ago and has been searching for her ever since. Selena’s life is polar opposite from the rich and powe ...more

I was so excited to get my hands on this beauty as I just LOVE Elizabeth Knox's work, as always, I had no idea what to expect, but yet again she did amazingly well, and I honestly couldn't have been happier. Elizabeth knows just how to grab her readers attention without even trying, she has a natural talent when it comes to writing down all the words. Her characters are written that you can't help but fall in love with them. The story was easy to follow and there weren't any complications, howev ...more

I LOVE Elizabeth's writing and Stripping a Steele definitely was a good one! I loved Christian in Tough as Steele, so I was super excited to hear that he was next to get a book. Everything about this book made me love Christian THAT much more!

Selena is so special. From the moment we meet her I was enamored by her. She's so tough and strong and does what needs to be done to take care of her family. As soon as I realized that she was Christian's target I smiled like a cheshire cat. I knew she was

Christian Steele, alpha, cocky, over the top, and protector.

“No one fucks with my Cinderella, you got that? And I’m Prince Fucking Charming, baby.”

He made me swoon with that line and didn’t stop throughout the entire book. Selena is a force to be reckoned with and doesn’t cut Christian any slack. Will he be able to break through the steel walls she keeps up?

Selena, independent, selfless, and a spitfire. She has overcome more in her young life than most people ever face. She does what it takes

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book for an honest review. I loved this book. Selena is a firecracker, loved her spunk, her fire and the love she has for her family. Christian is a mirror image of her in some ways, family is everything to him, he’s cocky, arrogant and always gets what he wants and he wants Selena. They met once before and when she found out who he was she split, but that didn’t deter him from finding her. All he wants is her, to protect her and take care o ...more

Loved this book. From the start I found it hard to put down. Looking forward to the. book in this series.

Christian meets Selena at a art showing. But she runs from him, not one to stand by he starts to search for his Cinderella only to find her months later stripping at a dive club.

Selena has had to give up so much. First it was her teen years then later it was to be more after her father passes away for her three younger siblibgs. Barely making by she works two jobs.

Christian is cocky, arrogant, loves woman and money. He has a bit of a dark side that his brothers don't know about he hides it well.
Selena had to grow up fast and take care of her younger siblings and help her dad when her father passes away she has to what she can to support her and family. When Christian sees her after many months of searching for her some bad stuff has gone down and he will do anything to keep her safe. And a Steele always get what they want.

You know when the heroine is just so freaking strong you envy her? Well, that's Selena. She has dealt with more than anyone should (I really mean that) and somehow doesn't let that stop her. If she could, she'd do everything herself. She has for so long, that when Christian Steele tries to take some of the responsibility from her she doesn't really know how to respond.

But Christian is a stubborn alpha-male who will stop at nothing to please his princess, his Cinderella.

Watching the two of them

This was the first book by Elizabeth Knox I’ve read and now I’m hooked. After Selena is left to take care of her brother and sisters she does everything she can to keep them safe and under one roof. While at work one night she runs into Christian Steele again. They had meet briefly once before and neither had forgotten the other. They form a bond over a traumatic event and he is determined to prove to Selena that you can’t judge a person by what you think you may know. “I’m trying to do a few th ...more

Elizabeth Knox has done it again. She's created a masterpiece that was so easy to fall in love with. The writing and the story line are amazing, and the book pulls you in and makes you not want to put it down.

After going through something absolutely horrific, Selena with the help of Christian must learn to trust again. Christian has a strong "need" to take care of his Cinderella, and Selena must learn to not only trust him, but to also allow him to take care of her and her siblings that she has

I loved Christian and Selina, I was a first time reader of Elizabeth so I had no idea what to expect.
Things moved along at a great pace the story was very well written with no complications and you can’t help it fall in love with the characters,from the main characters to the side characters.
Christian had a seemingly easy life compared to Selina who’s life was far more complicated and money poor but definitely not love poor she gave that in abundance.
He is stubborn and wants what he wants where

I thought Logan had that protectiveness down, but Christian has an even stronger need to keep Serena safe from harm! She's his Cinderella, and this bad boy is determined to be her prince. Even their antagonistic beginning couldn't stop them from letting those feelings of attraction spiral out of control! I loved, loved Christian's character, the ultimate bad boy reformed! And Serena was driven to succeed and was forced to be the strong one for her siblings. Amazing story with a super sexy man wh ...more

This is by far the best book, that I’ve read so far this year. Elizabeth Knox is simply brilliant. The way she writes these characters... this story.... and all the words are AMAZING. Christian is a badass alpha that is (in my eyes) HOT AF. Sorry, not sorry. The way Knox’s writes this story and its characters is rightfully put. This story and all of its words is something you should not miss. So, get to one-clicking and see for yourself. Happy Reading!

I absolutely loved this book! I could not put this book down from the very beginning. I wanna be Selena when I grow up. I see a lot of myself in Selena, I think that's why I love this book so much. I love Christians nickname for Selena (Cinderella). Selena gets her nickname after meeting Christian and deciding he is no good and runs away. I loved that Christian never gave up and showing Selena a whole different side to him. This book is a must read!

Good story about a woman who has had a tough life but has tried and mostly succeeded in taking care of what's most important-her family. When Selena meets Christian, she thinks he is bad news and runs away. This earns her a nickname of Cinderella. Christian won't give up going after her, and she is able to see another side of him. Can she trust him not to break her heart? Good storyline, interesting characters.

As a first time reader of Elizabeth Knox all I can keep thinking is OMG gotta find all her books!!! I was drawn into the story of Selena in the first paragraph and what woman doesn’t want a man like Christian just a little!!!! The electricity and love between them is spread through the whole book not all crammed into the last chapter!!! All in all I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS BOOK and can’t wait to see what life brings in future books!!!!

With so much heartbreak in her life how could she possibly endure more? Christian would do anything to protect Selena. Just a single glance had stripped him bare. Fighting for what they could have together would draw them closer. A great story about survival and doing everything you can to keep your remaining family together.

Christian Steele is a hot Alpha male who was very protective of Selena. Selena was a very strong woman who did what she had to so she could support her siblings. This book was funny, hot and filled with twist and turns. It is also a must read by Elizabeth Knox who has come to be one of my favorite Authors!
