Green Beret Reid Steele needs a new career ASAP. After a knee injury permanently sidelines him from his dream job, Reid heads home to the mountains of Steele Ridge to regroup, but small-town life isn't cutting it for a man accustomed to action.

Overview

Green Beret Reid Steele needs a new career ASAP. After a knee injury permanently sidelines him from his dream job, Reid heads home to the mountains of Steele Ridge to regroup, but small-town life isn't cutting it for a man accustomed to action. When sexy boutique owner Brynne Whitfield captures his attention, Reid thinks he's found the perfect distraction from boredom.

The last thing recently-dumped Brynne is interested in is another fast-talking man who will break her heart and dismiss her like yesterday's trash. Even if Reid Steele's body does make her yearn for things she knows are as bad for her as hot fudge sundaes.

When Brynne's closest friend is murdered and she's also targeted, Reid can't resist the lure of action and goes on a hunt for answers to disturbing questions. But can he protect her from a cold-blooded killer--and win her battered heart?

I've enjoyed all of the books in the Steele Ridge series so far, but Reid's story has been my favorite so far. He's just this side of arrogant, but his adorable smile makes it okay! Lots of intrigue happening in this one as the bad guys keep coming after Brynne and Reid keeps having to protect her. Looking forward to seeing more of the Steele family. Green Beret Reid Steele is really mad that his Army career has ended simply because of a freak accident that left him with a knee injury that puts him out of commission. He needs a new career, but for just came home to Steele Ridge to lay low and heal a little. Boutique owner Brynne Whitfield has caught his attention both times he's run into her since being back, so he sets out to woo her into having a little fun with him, but Brynne's recently had her heartbroken by a player and certainly isn't looking to move on to another one. When her best friend is murdered and she somehow becomes a target of the assailant, Reid steps in to keep her safe. Will their close contact lead to them actually starting to care about each other?

WOW! What an awesome storyline! Four brothers that have core family values, yet they live, play and love Hard! The Steel brothers in action are something to behold. LIving Fast is about Reid Steel. He has come back home to Steel Ridge, after a freak accident, to try and determine what to do with his life. A take charge, always in the thick of things kind of guy, with nothing to do. Then in the blink of a just a few short hours he runs into a girl, that her really wants to get to know better, see a drive by shooting, interrupts a store break-in and gets involved in stuff that is none of his business but just can’t seem to help himself! Especially when the girl he “really wants to get to know” seems to have issues of her own yet also seems to be involved with this sleepy country towns sudden craziness. This is a fast paced, suspenseful, romance that has some very comical moments. The author has done a fabulous job of pulling the reader into the story and making them feel they are right there feeling every emotion - the good and the bad ones. I highly recommend Living Fast and this reader will definitely be picking up the other books in the series about the other 3 brothers, which are a big part of this story as well. A resounding 2 thumbs up!

This series is a bit different, as it has books by different authors. Living Fast is the third book in the series. It features Reid Steele, one of four brothers in the series. A former Green Beret, he returns to his hometown as his career is ended by a knee injury. His family is trying to rebuild their town, each in their own way. Enter Brynne Whitfield, a boutique owner who seems to be a distraction for him. Between his attempt for a romance with Brynne and solving a murder, this is an interesting, fast paced story. I’m fascinated by the family and am now going back to read the first two books in the series. Very well done!!!

Living Fast, book 3 of the Steele Ridge Series delivers in true Giordano style. Reid Steele has been struggling to find his place in the civilian world ever since he tore his knee up jumping off a truck. Although he enjoys being around his family again, he is a bit bitter and anxious to leave the small town he grew up in. Brynne is back home and starting over Steele Ridge after divorcing her controlling husband. Reid thinks Brynne would be a perfect distraction however, Brynne has sworn off men for the next five years. Their chemistry is sizzling hot and Reid is determined to change her mind. When Brynne becomes an inadvertent target of some nefarious doings, Reid can’t resist coming to her rescue and trying to solve the mystery of who is behind it all and why. There is truly something for everyone in this story; humor, mystery, family bonds, and love. I can’t wait to read the rest of this series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

Reid has been unsettled ever since his dream job as a Green Beret got sidelined due to a knee injury. Shortly after he meets Brynne, her best friend is murdered and she is targeted. In protective mode and looking for some excitement in Steele Ridge, Reid decides to play detective to help find Brynne's attacker. This drives his cousin Maggie, the local sheriff, crazy! I love Adrienne Giordano's writing style and am always excited to read her books! I am loving this new series by 3 wonderful authors! The Steele family's competitive and playful relationship is amusing and I look forward to reading about the other Steele brothers. I really hope that Evie gets her own story because she holds her own against her brothers and I love her spunky attitude. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Ms Giordano has once again capitalized on her gifted writing and expanded upon the Steele brothers' characters to put her own unique spin on the story. The humor, wry banter, the dialog that wavers between hilarity and serious, is all interwoven together to seamlessly create a truly enjoyable romance, interlaced with suspense, a bit of mystery and just the right amount of angst. There is one thing I can say about Reid Steele...in the simplest of terms...he's quite a character. He's out there in his self confidence, goes after what he wants, nothing gets in his way, and he's a gorgeous hunk of man! But, he's met his match in Brynne, she has no problem telling him no...while she's falling under his spell. She was shooting him down left and right, trying to stick to her "no men five year plan". With his self confidence (through the roof... no conceit, just fact), he knew he could chip away at her a little bit at a time and break down her barriers. Between the two of them, this is one entertaining story. I've enjoyed every book by Ms Giordano that I've read to date, and this one is no different. I'll continue to seek out her books as I know, I'll always be entertained...finding it hard to put down the book, late at night, before the story ends. This book was provided by the author, I voluntarily am providing my honest review.

I am very excited with this new series from four authors I could hardly wait for them to be out. I decided to start off reading this one it was hard to pick which one to read first. Each author brings so much to this series if “Living Fast” is anything to go by what a series this is going to be. Ms. Giordano brings such wonderful characters with a unique twist that only she has. This was a little different than she has written before which makes it a freshen read. This is a very fast pace suspenseful read that had me holding my breath on the edge of my seats at the drive by shooting to the romance and everything in between. Reid is very frustrated he is unable to keep the career he was trained for getting an injury he has to leave the Green Beret. Now he is stuck in his little home town where he doesn’t want to be. I found him to be a very exciting character knowing what he wants and going after it. Sexy as sin what a hunk of a man. Brynne is looking forward to coming home to the small town she is raised in. She isn’t looking and doesn’t want a man. With one marriage behind her she isn’t looking to making that two. This was a very interesting character she has no trouble standing on her own two feet. She cuts the sexy Reid down every chance she gets putting him in his place or the place she feels he should be. The trouble is he isn’t staying in his place which is driving her crazy. She is bent on keeping to her 5 year plan of no man he is bent on bending her to his will. What a lovely bend it will be. I know when I pick up one of Ms Giordano book I will be highly entertained and very invested with the characters. She brings such live to her readers that you almost feel you are part of the story. She gives you very vivid detail that you have no trouble picking the scenes as they unfold. This author always hooks me from the first page to the last. I really enjoyed reading this and can’t wait for the rest of the series to find out how each author throws their own twist on each brother. I love the thrills and excitement this author brings to her books. I have trouble waiting for the next book to come out.
