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

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

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

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!

I feel like I am stuck in a cycle of mehh~ books. This book was entertaining but there were some parts I really didn't like.

Lately I've found a new term to describe books like this and that is to say that "this book is very Alexa Riley." So yeah if you lover Alexa Riley high chance you will love this book. So it's more of a preference thing and I am personally not a fan of her books so this book didn't do it for me either.

There were little things here and there that I didn't like but

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

When I started this book I was hooked right away.
As I got more in-depth into the story some things just didn’t make sense.
Brooklyn is a beautiful young lady.
She models and as put herself through school,which is fantastic.
That gave me the impression that she has a good head on her shoulders and thinks seriously of her future.
Brooklyn is a newly recovering drug addict.
She’s six months somber again fantastic.
But what didn’t make sense and didn’t fit was her always being in bars and drinking copious

This was a read that left me with conflicted feelings. I liked it but did have some issues with it. I did feel that the bare bones of the book were good. I found both the story and characters interesting. I thought that Logan and Brooklyn had really good chemistry and that their attraction was easy to feel. I liked them as a couple. With the addition of secrets, drama and intrigue you'd expect to have a five star read. However, the problem lies in the details. Or a drastic lack of them, more ...more

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 ...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

Mediocre

I found this book a little boring not a lot really happens it really is just a glorified love story. It is the introduction to the Steele brothers and is about the oldest and head of their business Logan and the girl he meets and falls in love with Brooklyn. She is unaware of the fact that he is a gun runner as well as his legitimate buisnesses. She only recently met her father when her mother died she also has a past history of drug addiction that she hadn't known her father was

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 ...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

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!

Logan is the oldest and is trying to turn the family business around. He is amazing and once his eyes meet Brooklyn all bets are off. You can feel the instant pull between them.

The Steele brothers are as thick as thieves and what they want they get. Logan saw Brooklyn and said she was his even before she met him. Brooklyn Met Logan one night and they hit it off but she didn’t know that he had already claimed her as his. When she found out things got heated between them and it was a whirlwind. Logan went above and beyond to protect her and Brooklyn cared very deeply for her loved ones. Great story and hotter brothers.

An incredible uplifting love story...When Logan Steele saw Brooklyn Harper he knew she would be his, he just had no idea of the extent of his feelings. Brooklyn Harper is trying to launch a new business and did not realize the guy she left the bar with was the same investor she was meant to meet.
Hoping there pasts don't end the relationship they try to take it as far as they can.
This book has bad guys, steam and HEA.
