Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)

Steele meets his match when feisty, uptight Jaylynn walks onto his set and into his life. She's the woman come to approve (or not) his stunts, and her attitude immediately challenges both his control and his libido. Will he ever scale her walls? Get her to open up to the possibilities of pleasure that await them? And what about when feelings start becoming involved...

Steele is a complicated character, and his story is just as complicated. He has a horrific past and it's made him controlling in

Steele Kane is a professional stuntman and has been for years. When his latest movie has an insurance agent going over every one of his stunts to determine if they are too dangerous or not. Because if they are, then the insurance company has to pay out. While Steele sees the woman as the person to stop his most daring stunts, he also sees the strong, kind of stand-offish woman that pulls

What a complicated story!!!! What a glorious day of entertainment it gave me. I am so happy that I had a good block of time so that I could devour every last amazing page.

Steele has real substance. He is a complicated character. He has a lot of emotional baggage that adds to his story and gives a bit of insight into the Kane family. Even better it has me gnawing my nails wanting MORE, MORE, MORE.

Steele doesn't believe he can love or be loved. His past blocks his future. He is alone except for

I loved reading about the Kane brothers again. I loved Steele. Jaylyn, while being a strong heroine, also shows some vulnerability. I liked how Steele was with Jaylyn. Both of their pasts keep them from wanting to get emotionally involved. I enjoyed the pace of the story and the flow. I thought the ending was perfect and I cant wait to read Crashs story. ...more
Steele is a "love and leave them" type of guy. He has past issues that makes him believe that love is not an option for him and his job makes him believe that a relationship is not an option either. Then there is Jaylyn, She is grieving and her grief has shut her down to love and relationships. She has so many walls up, and those walls has her coming off as crass. I found their story to be complicated, there were so many things that they needed to work through. They were both so closed off they ...more

Ms Gendron has our attention with the Kane brothers. Steele is a daring stuntman who is good at his job. He works hard to be one of the best in the business and that includes the proper head space a stunt requires. One thing he is not so good at is giving up or defeat. When his Insurance Company send Jaylyn to watch over him and decide it certain stunts should be covered he is immediately drawn to her. But it is clear that she has some pretty strong walls

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second book in the series, and I would recommend that you read Token's book first, as it does help set the family scene. It also gives you a different perspective of their background. Expect the prologue to really catch you out.

Steele is a man who never gets involved with anyone - his past has defined his decisions on that score. And as he is a stuntman, he thinks any woman is probably off not getting two

Kelly Gendron has an amazing talent at writing amazing, sexy, beautifully flawed alpha men!! The Kane brothers are no different.

Steeles a stunt double. He lives and breathes his jobs. Steele practices stunts over and over until he gets it right before hell do it in front of the camera. Other men in his profession havent had the best luck. Some guys cant work anymore from injury and some have lost their lives. Steele doesnt plan on being one of them.

This is so much more than I expected! A smart, sexy, slow-build romance with mature characters that are beautifully crafted with depth and personality. The writing is superb, thoughtful and quality. I didn't read the first book but I will because this one about daredevil Steele is fantastic. What a hunk! I love his profession and the natural entrance of his love interest into his life. No forcing together of our couple. He's patient in his wooing of Jaylyn and even though he says it's all about ...more

Thanks to the author for an eARC to read and give my honest opinion. The cover is delicious and the blurb definitely caught my eye.

Lovely and fun read with a HEA. Steele is the second Kane brother to get a book, and his fun character was amazing. I happen to love even tempered men and this just follows that. Jaylyn is a challenge for Steele as he tries to get her to practice being with another man again after losing her fiancé. It's been three years and she keeps all men at a distance, he

Loved this story.

I can only imagine what it was like for Stone and Steele concerning what they went through with their birth mother. I can only imagine the nightmare that their father must of felt.

Steele was pure sex on legs. He was a stunt man but did not have plan falling for any woman. It is pretty sad knowing that he kept his heart so guarded but I guess this is what made him perfect for Jay.

My heart broke as piece by piece Jays story came out. She suffered so much pain more then you can

Those Kane brothers....*sigh*....

This is Steeles story, the man of Steel immuned to love until Jaylyn walks into his life. What a very complicated man, whom controls every aspect of his work and life and yes even in his sex life too. Even when his advances are stoned walled by Jaylyn, no matter he is determined and shows what a patient man he can be.

Jaylyn has her own complications she has had to endure and deal with, add to it now fighting her immediate attraction to Steele. Nor does Steele

Can they heal and find happiness together?

Steele is the second book in the Kane brother series and an offshoot from the Declan Brother series.

Steele Kane is a stunt double whose job is everything to him. Though he is exacting and meticulous in his practice to perform his stunts without flaw, it is still a dangerous profession.

Jaylyn is beautiful, poised and serious. Her job with the insurance company is to ensure Steele complies with all safety rules, and compliance, and stay alive while on the

Kelly Gendron is a new to me author that I will continue getting to know, as I really enjoyed Steele. Steele Kane decided that he will never have a relationship or love, but he never sees Jaylyn Rigsby coming. She's the person that the insurance company sent to see what stunts he does, and whether they're too dangerous. She too, refuses anything to do with love now, but that doesn't stop Steele from pursuing her for some friends with benefits. I absolutely LOVED Steele, because even though he ...more

What happens when a man who says he is unlovable meets falls for a woman who is afraid to fall in love? Steele digs his way into Jays life and heart and forces her to face realities, but at what cost. Both of them have lived through some very harrowing experiences, those experiences have molded them into what they are now.

One of the Kane brothers refers to him as the Man of Steele, and Jaylyn being his Kryptonite, and I realized how fitting that is for their relationship. Kelly Gendron did an

I received this ARC to read for an honest review.

I Absolutely LOVE this story!!!

It appears that Steele Kane...Alpha Male stunt man, has found his Kryptonite in Jaylyn Rigsby a Loss Control Expert.
Steele doesn't believe he can love or be loved. Because of her past Jay doesn't want to fall in love out of fear. Steele challenges Jay to use him to move on from her past. Will she be brave enough to accept the challenge? And what will happen to both Steele and Jay if she does?

I was looking forward to reading Steele and it intrigued me from the beginning. I keep expecting for Daring the Kane Brothers to have that same type of suspense as Breaking the Declan Brothers and it keeps surprising me when there isnt. Steele and Token have been great without that aspect though, theyve just been a different side of Kelly Gendron for me. And I really liked Steele, it tugged on my heartstrings a little and was a nice little addition to the series.

I definitely liked Steele more

Can a man who believes he is unlovable find love? Steele Kane had a rough start in life. It had a lasting effect on him. When he meets Jaylyn Rigsby he is instantly attracted to her. Jay has her own issues and fights Kane until she can't. He is charming and stubborn. Nothing gets in his way. However, he is patient but a little pushy. Bribery and blackmail in the fun sense will give Jaylyn an excuse to give in. Neither wants to fall in love. Steele promises that they won't. Famous last words. ...more

Steele is book 2 in the Daring the Kane Brothers Series; a successful Hollywood stuntman he is doing reckless stunts but not without caution.

When the insurance company sends a loss-control expert to set he is taken back, Jaylyn is gorgeous and will not give him the time of day; with a wedding ring on her finger he backs away. When they are put in each others paths again they cant find the attraction they have. Jaylyn has some very high walls that she puts up for a reason and Steele is

Lane is a man who thinks he is unloveable. Both are very strong individuals. I love the way the brother stick together like family should.

Steele is a professional stunt double and is willing to take some crazy risks. Jaylyn is employed by the insurance company who covers him during his current film. Jay doesn't take risks and isn't impressed with the man she is insuring even if sparks fly. Will Steele figure this ultimate stunt out and make it work or will he crash and burn?

This is the second book in the Daring the Kane Brothers series and it is a great read.

This book has a tender, heart-wrenching side, as well as a sexy side.

Steele & Jay are convinced that too much pain comes with love. And embarking on a no-strings arrangement would protect their hearts. The two of them realise soon enough, however, that love is patient, waiting until you've healed to fully appreciate it, and it never quite works how you want it to.

I enjoyed this book, and was sorry I couldn't get just a little more of Steele & Jay. I liked the way that the author

I loved Steele, a great, slow romance. Steele himself was a wonderful character, cheeky, a little arrogant, full of confidence but truly a nice guy. Jaylyn was a strong women who did everything with determination, but she also had a vulnerable side.
And theyd both had difficulties in their past that kept them from wanting any serious relationships. For Steele sex with out love was fine with him, for Jaylyn complete abstinence works best.
This was a well developed story, the pace was good and I
