Hard as Steel: Book four (Surviving Series) by Virginia Wine – Review by Maura Harper
Hard as Steel: Book four by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first book I’ve read by the author and I really wish I had read the others in the series first. I was a little frustrated at first trying to figure out who was who and how they connected. It was like opening a book to the middle with no introduction. Once I figured stuff out, I was ready.
Nichole and Steel have a past, their characters have developed over time and they seem to have a trust and inner language that each other understands. They surround themselves with people they can trust because each knows what happens when you trust someone you shouldn’t. They are both Alphas with their strength and fortitude.
This is a fantastic suspense/romance that is so twisty and twisted I was gobsmacked a few times about how wrong I was with what I thought was going on.
A few tips with this story:
DON’T SKIM – there are a lot of twists and turns and there are words that are very important to the story.
DON’T ASSUME – I caught myself relaxing a few times thinking I knew what was going to happen.
DON’T MISS BOOKS 1-3 – Honestly, I went into this book blind and when I realized I had missed so much background, I went and read reviews on the previous books in the series. Those reviews that recap the entire book so I could be comfortable with this one.
