He's used to putting out fires, not starting them.

Firefighter Blake Steele is living day-to-day, desperately trying to escape the guilt of his haunted past. He doesn't deserve love after what he did, but when the gorgeous Mary Franks moves in next-door, the conflict between what Steele believes in his head and what he feels in his heart just adds fuel to the fire. 

For Mary, living next door to a firefighter should be comforting, except her handsome new neighbor insists on making a nuisance of himself by helping her—with everything. And though she can't deny her attraction, love isn't something Mary has time for. She has one goal: keeping her son safe, at any cost. 

When Mary's abusive ex is granted parole and fights to get his son back, she relies on Steele for support. But as Steele uncovers all of Mary's secrets, he is forced to face his own troubled past before both of their lives go up in flames… 

Return to Black Widow with this smoldering, standalone romance from award winning author Erin Bevan.

From page one I was sucked into the story. I already loved Tank (the first book in the series) and I love Steele even more! Ms. Bevan has done an amazing job of putting a different twist on biker romance novels. This is a must read series and is beautifully written. I can't wait to find out if there will be more to come for this town and biker gang.

The more I read from Erin Bevan, the more I fall in love with her writing and her storytelling. In this second book with the Blue Guardians, we get to hang out with Blake Steele - the hunky fireman with a seemingly dark past to haunt him. From the moment this book got rolling, I knew I wanted Steele and Mary to find love with each other. But I spent much of the book wondering if that would ever really happen. I loved the ups and downs of this story, the drama that unfolded with each and every chapter, and the family that continued to mold through the Blue Guardians and the people in their lives. I fell in love with little Nathanial (aka Bear) as his personality progressed from a timid little boy in book one to a spirited and fun-loving kid in this book. My soft spot for both Bear and Steele only deepened as their relationship grew throughout the story. Last, but not least, is the amazing character of Mary. This woman has been through the wringer just to hold on to a little boy that belongs to her only through love. Her strength as she stands up against her ex-husband provides for the son she desperately wants to keep and tries to make a life for herself shows just how strong a woman she is. I could not wait for her to let down her guard and allow Steele fully into her life to love and protect her. This book is a perfect addition to this series, and I am hoping to see more of the Blue Guardians in the very near future. Put this book on your reading list. *I am proud to be a member of this author's reader club and received an advanced copy of this book*

I love second chance stories, and that’s what Steele by author Erin Bevan is all about. Getting a fresh start, whether it’s somewhere new, or just in your way of thinking. I haven’t read the first book in this series yet, as these are standalones, but they are connected by characters so maybe for anyone thinking about grabbing the first one, I’d read it Tank, then Steele. In Steele, Mary has gotten away from her abusive husband and is doing her best to be a single mom and to show everyone that she can go it alone. Nathaniel isn’t hers through birth, but she’s still his mom in her heart. She’s flawed in many ways but still finds her strength when she needs it most. Blake’s carrying a lot of emotional baggage and doesn’t think he deserves a woman like Mary, he’s to broken for her. But this man has hidden depths that Mary brings to the surface. Being a firefighter and a member of the Blue Guardians, he knows who to take care of himself and those he loves. This was quite an emotional, suspenseful story. I enjoyed the characters, although I didn’t like Mary’s ex, and getting to hear his POV didn’t endear him to me. At all. I wanted to bash him with a frying pan. But, at least the ending was well played out.

This is the third book I have read by Ms. Bevan, and I have to say that I think she is one of the best indie authors that I have read. Her stories are poignant, emotional and sometimes heart wrenching. Steele is no less. Her heroes are book boyfriend worthy, and while I prefer Tank over Steele, they are both admirable and worthy to be book boyfriends. While Mary's wishy washy feelings for Steele grate on the nerves a bit, she does redeem herself and their love is something worth rooting for. I will mention because of the abuse that is a part of this series, that the reader goes in with open eyes because these are highly emotional issues that could cause triggers. Having said that, this series is worthy every minute invested, and the characters become beloved. Kudos Ms. Bevan!!!

The best characters are the one's who are flawed, because only by confronting the imperfections can there be true manifestations of our best self. Steele is both the best and worst of what life has to offer. Bevan lends an empathetic ear to hard truths, painful pasts and a web of lies. Blake and Mary are runners too afraid to stop and face the reality their working to outrun. Until fate gives each a reality check in the worst way. To find the pretty, we have to rise above the ugly.
