Hard as Steel by Virginia Wine is the fourth book in her Surviving Series and what a great read this turned out to be. Following the story of Steel Archer, who is a strong independent man who will do anything for the people the he loves. While this story is a dark and twisted, it does have some elements of romance and suspense. Getting hooked from the first page I couldn’t put this book down until I knew how it was going to end. Seeing a man like Steel fall for Nicole Lancaster, who is an FBI agent used to the boys’ club of Steel’s world, was such a treat. These two together were such fire that it all but gave me a stroke the chemistry between them. Both of them were so independent and determined to best the other that when they gave in to their feelings it made the story just explode. Getting to see the softer side of Steel made him feel so much more human that I fell for him on the spot. Can these two make a real go of it or will the worlds that they live in pull them apart? Can Steel keep the woman that brings out the best of him? Can Nicole trust that Steel will be there when she needs him most? Hard as Steel is the first book by Virginia Wine that I have read, and I have now bought all of the books in this series to do a binge reading session. I love that each book can be read on its own and that they all tie together in the end. If you are looking for a great story that will heat you up and keep you intrigued from beginning to end, this is the book and series for you. I can’t wait to see what Wine brings to her readers next.
