Overview

After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend's ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn't expect to be attracted to her friend's reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.

Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return...until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he'll never be able to satisfy.

Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.

210 pages too short. I wish that authors would stop comparing there book to fifty shades the only thing in this book that has to do with Gray is this cowboy was raped by 3 men not a woman. Why can't writers write all 3 book a the same time now i have to wait at least 3 to 6 months and each book at $ 6.99 make the pages longer

Too unrealistic and seemed like a wannabe copykat of Shades of Grey series, definitely missing something. I saw alot of hype marketing/social media so was disappointed in the storyline; although if you enjoy the graphic sex then this might be for you.

This is my first review ever so bare with me. I bought this book yesterday and was finished a couple hours later. I could not put it down. I highly recommend this book. The author really helped me connect to Jade and Talon. I laughed and cried during this. But the down side is the end. It made me scream Noooo where is the rest?? I will be getting the next one in this saga. Great job Helen Hardt. I am hooked.

This book is like a bad soap opera. A lot of repeition and just when you think somethig is going to be revealed, BAM chapter change or BAM, sex. And not good sex because there is no chimistry between the two. No depth to the characters. And the men all talk like women with a "bro" tossed in so you think they are guys. Save your money.

It was a good read but not as hyped up as it was meant out to be.

I read the entire book in one night. I could not put it down. It is a page turner from the very beginning. Yes there is lotsof romance but story being told about the ghosts of Talon's past is absolutely riveting. An amazing story so well told by Helen Hardt. I cannot wait for Obsession A MUST READ!!!!

I didn’t like the ending where it obviously was a ploy to continue the series. I have read plenty of authors who have successfully wrapped up the current storyline yet led me into the next book of the series. This so blatantly is a sales pitch, it wraps up nothing of the current story. Purely profit driven! Don’t start unless you’re willing to pay for the ending, however many books away it may be.

WARNING! This is a good book, as are the 5 subsequent ones I had to read because of the cliffhangers. BUT...each subsequent ebook costs $8, so don't be sucked into reading this free first book unless you're willing to spend $64 to finish the series. I stopped after book 6, as by then I could pretty much figure out where the story was headed, and I didn't need $24 worth of confirmation. It's actually a shame, as the writing (for the genre) and story are good. Were it not for the extortion employed to continue the series I'd have given this 4.5 stars.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first Helen Hardt book I've read, and she did no disappoint. This book was dark, fast, and so damn sexy. I couldn't put it down! The story follows Talon Steel, a tortured soul trying to find his way, but of course, nothing in life goes as planned. Jade Roberts comes crashing into his world and everything gets turned on its head for these two complex characters. I was very impressed with both Hardt's writing abilities and her talent of consuming the reading into an engrossing story. Well done, Helen! I'm waiting on pins and needles for book two!

I couldn't put it down! I loved this book. Talon and Jade are amazing characters. Talon is so broken, yet strong. It broke my heart and pissed me off just seeing his story unfold. I wasn't expecting that cliffhanger! I can't wait for the next book!

I devoured this book in less than 24 hours and now I am the one left "Craving" more! I cannot wait for the second (and third) installment of this series to become available. The characters are rich in personalities and Helen Hardt's gift for words paints a mental image of the rugged good looks of the leading man Talon. Obsession and Possession (books 2 and 3) cannot come soon enough!

This was my first read from Helen Hardt. let me tell you, I am now a fan for life. The relationship between Talon and Jade is HOT and the underlying back story is full of suspense. I cannot wait to learn more about what happened to Talon and the mystery that the Steel family is involved in. I am so excited for the next book in this series as I need more Talon and Jade and I need to find out where this storyline is going!!!

OMG I need Obsession like now!! How can I possibly wait?! LOL this series is amazing and is going to continue to be. Jade and Talon's chemistry....hot, raw, all that! Be aware there's a cliffhanger but the next book is out in a couple of months. You absolutely won't regret this one. I love Helen's other books for sure but this one is my favorite thus far!

Just a little short.. I do not like the three book series. One book is all that’s needed.

Jade is left at the alter when her fiance, Colin, never shows up. She isn't too upset, they've drifted apart since she stayed in Denver to get a law degree and he moved to NY after he graduated. Her best friend invites Jade to come live on the Steel Ranch and wait to see if she passed her bar. There she meets the middle brother, Talon, who is a troubled soul. I didn't understand why Jade even went through planning a wedding when she really wasn't that interested in marrying Colin. It just seemed the thing to do. I liked the ranch and the Steel family, but Talon was confusing. He has suffered in the past, but then was able to join the Marines and served in Iraq. But his problems aren't connected to his military service. When Jade and Talon are attracted to each other, the troubles begin. There were times while reading this book that I was disappointed with the writing (some repetitive language in the sex scenes). This is a book that is an introduction to the series, but it ends in a type of cliffhanger. I wish there was a 3.5 rating, but it is better than a 3 so I rounded up to 4.

Craving is definitely nothing like 50 Shades. It is better. I had no idea what to expect from the book but it has me intrigued. I just wished they would not break up the story into several books that are so few pages. I have been reading for 50 plus years and it has been in the past couple of years that they are splitting books into so many mini books. With that being said, I am anxious to read the next segment.

This is beyond graphic! The back story gets completely lost by the use of sexual activity & context that goes way beyond good taste. I have read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. At least it was written with some sense of propriety. I would NOT recommend the Steele Brothers novels to anyone!
