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?

Hey y’all T here with my review on Steel & Ice by Emily Eck. I really can’t lie here. It took me forever to read this book. Yes I am not a fast pace reader. However this book should have been done in 1day. Not 5. With that being said. Let’s get to the book since there was 1 saying in there that got me. To me it speaks the truth if you truly sit down and think about it. Meet Elle. 22-23 yrs. old. Lives out on her own. Has a job and goes to school. Also helps out at the YMCA with the kids. You can pretty much catch her smoking her “smoke” and having her fun on the weekend at the bar. With her best friend Chris by her side, Elle is able to keep her demons at bay (demons I have no clue what they are). While hanging with her co-workers one night she spots a hunk of a man. Not being able to take her eyes off of him she feels herself losing control. This is all new to her. Elle doesn’t let people in. She keeps people at bay for a reason. Letting people in takes away from your energy. She has built the ice around her heart or a reason. Now let’s meet J. He doesn’t talk much. His actions speak for him. When J walks in the room he takes charge of it. Doing what he has to do to survive. Once his eyes connect with Elle it is as if the world has stopped. With every moment spent with her he feels the steel grip around his heart start to be peeled away. Yet once she finds out what he does will she be willing to stay an embrace the love? Or will she run and never look back? “Like onions I have layers. Many. It’s hard to ramble them off to someone which is what most people seem to want me to do. I can’t lay myself out on 20 words or less. You just have to go along for the ride and find out.” This…….this spoke to me. In her mist of being high a drunk Elle made this comment to J. It really makes you (well me) think. Can YOU describe yourself in 20 words or less to a person that would make them want to stay with you? Be around you? That there is a question along with a statement.
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.
