Angel Devereaux is smart, sexy and definitely on Sam’s blacklist. After siding with Sam’s enemy fifteen years ago, Angel can’t help but wonder what if….what if Sam had never left? What if he could forgive her now? She had her reasons, but he won’t listen. So enough with words, sometimes action is exactly what’s called for.
I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.
Leather and Lace by Maggie Adams is the second book in the Temper Steel Series. Ms. Adams combines sass, quick wit, plenty of sexual tension and suspense to make this a page turner. She includes in her books a strong family tie which makes this a realistic southern book without going over the top, which by the way drives me crazy. The Coalson family reminds me of my own, they stick together, give each other a hard time, and have a mama that is sweet as pie but strong as an ox! She will bless your heart, pray for you but you mess with one of her kids and she is there- no matter what the cost (like a mama bear).
Sam and Angel's story started when they were just teenagers; their love was true and,believe it or not, lasting. Well it was until her daddy found out and promptly decided she was dating beneath herself. Sometimes arrogant, aristocratic, old Southern daddies have a different way at looking at life. You see, appearance is everything. How the family appears in the communities eyes equates to the family's status symbol; therefore, appearance is put before the family's desires or true love. This is what happen to Angel, bless her heart, her daddy kept her from the love of her life.
Well form the teasers you can tell they are gonna hook back up! Let me tell you when they do, it is like fireworks on the Fourth of July! It's. Smoking. Hot. Sam's all don't you wear any panties- and Angel's like, I didn't wear any and lookie lou right here!! Then there are some twist and turn that makes things dangerous. Sam is all protective cave man, Angel is a heroine in her own right, so you know how well that works. So, who saves who, and with what little talent that they have up their sleeve? Can't give away the good stuff or I wouldn't be able to review anymore books! Just take my word for it- One Click!
Adams shows depth is her characters and I loved the dual POV's. She has the dialect perfect and her setting is spot on! I always love getting in the head of those alpha males, and she did not disappoint. She showed his broody dark side well. With Angel, what I loved that Adams did with her is that she didn't make her that weak damsel in distress, that is what we need ladies! Strong women that ALLOWS those alpha males do their thing- no doormats here- Adams will never allow that!
I give Leather & Lace 5 stars
