My Review: 4/5 Stars
Abe was an interesting read for me.
Abe is the CFO of Steel Inc. and he needs a vacation. Thinking that he is going to a secluded property he is completely surprised when his meets his next door neighbors. When he meets Nikki he is a goner, but before things can go to far she runs.
Nikki’s ex cheated on her and when she goes on Spring Break, it’s to unwind. She never imagined she would meet and have fling with sexy Abe. When after a night of passion, she feels she can give her heart away she runs fast. Only to come face to face with Abe again because she has to do an interview for the paper she works at.
Abe’s still pissed and wants to make Nikki pay, but who will win the game in the end?
I liked Abe, though at times he confused me. He is sweet, loyal, and sexy. Oh and he’s a freak in the bedroom. (OMG) I think I would have done anything he asked me too. He let Nikki know up front what he wanted from her, and didn’t leave anything to be desired.
Nikki on the other hand left me a little peeved through out the book, and I had a few serious cases where I wanted to slap her. She wasn’t bad, just with something’s if it were me, I would have went to the man that said he would protect me when shit hit the fan.
This book was sexy, steamy and drama filled. It shows what a man will do to protect what he considers his. no matter what anybody says to the contrary. And I swear to beans I need to read the books in the Men of Steel series.

My Review: 4/5 Stars
I loved Dominic and OMG I want me one of him. He was strong, independent and when he found the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, he stopped at nothing to get her to be his.
Laney, I liked her in the beginning, not so much in the middle, and a little in the end. I have said this a thousand times, if you have a man that is drop dead gorgeous, that makes the other women jealous of you, you make them jealous. And when you over hear something’s and the man tries to explain, let him and then after you still don’t believe him, that’s when you shun him.
But Laney did win back into my good graces when, she finally did stand by Dominic, she slipped once (pushing him away), didn’t really understand why, but she got her footing again.
After reading this book I REALLY need to read Men of Steel. I can’t wait for the next book in this spin off series. Sabato sounds like he is going to be doing so really kinky things. I can’t flipping wait!
