Review & GIVEAWAY: "Steel & Ice" by Emily Eck

Title: Steel & Ice
Author: Emily Eck
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 26, 2014

Elle isn't looking for love. Hardened by years on the streets, she's learned to take care of herself by covering her heart with ice and keeping men at arm's length. She's not weak and she doesn't need to be saved. But she wouldn't mind getting laid a little more often.

J's covered his heart with steel. He owe's his life to an MC that is not what it seems. Since he knows his priority must be to the club's demands, no matter how illegal, he decided a long time ago that love didn't fit anywhere in his life.

A not so chance, but definitely hot encounter on a crowded dance floor should be enough for J, but he can't seem to stay away from Elle. As she begins to melt his steel, and he manages to chip away her ice, his forced loyalty to the MC threatens to tear them apart. When the risk becomes greater than J expected, will love be enough to keep Elle from freezing her heart to him?

Elle has never known love, not really. She was never good enough for her mother and the only fond memories she has is playing games with her father. There are many different versions of Elle. Even she isn't sure of which is the REAL Elle. She has two besties who have her back, Chris and Aaron, but even they haven't seen the true to self version of her. Elle has secrets, things that she keeps special to her and a dark past from roaming the streets.
J has made mistakes. The worst of them? Going to St. Louis. It's a mistake he of his life.
He looks to his grandfather's spirit for guidance. Being Lakota and raised by him he asks him to help him with this life of nothingness. He see a beautiful girl with golden eyes. He wants her to be his, but in a world of the illegal, how can he ask someone to be a part of his life?
When Elle meets J it's a game of magnets. They are drawn together and pushed apart. When the attraction takes hold and they finally come together they can't be pulled apart. The funny thing about magnets though? There's always a flip side. When your calling starfish something is bound to creep up and you'll never expect how it all comes down.
This is seriously one of the most addicting series I've read. I had the good fortune to read the next books in the series "J Speaks" and "Melted & Shattered". Holy wow! These are hot and amazing books and has a cliffhanger. These aren't the type that will be forgotten though. Believe me your going to have every moment etched in your mind.
5 stars and be prepared not to sleep because this is a book that will NEED to be read straight through. Why? Because you won't want to put it down. If you do, it may cause a physical reaction of not being able to sleep until you finish it.

Emily is a Midwestern Gal, but could be anywhere as you read this. She gypsy's the country, as well as south of the border. Adventure feeds her soul, and offers great writing material. She loves kids and working with teens, but can only handle caring for four-legged furry friends. A crazy dog and laid back cat have trained her to be their partner in life. Vices include Swedish Fish, ignoring chores in favor of reading, and caring too much for the people in her life. She chose to write this bio in third person as she is an Aries, and found writing in first person ended up with her writing an excessively long life story. Aries like to talk about themselves. It is something Emily is working on being more mindful of.
