    JASE.... is a total package... bad boy, tattoo artist, gorgeous, pierced and of course tattooed. Enter pretty Carly, on holiday visiting her cousin, daddy and her brother. The attraction is undeniable. " Turn around. I have been dying to kiss those lips, Carly" "Good, because after I make love to you tomorrow, for the first time, I am going to fuck you hard all weekend so that when I leave.... you will not be able to walk or think about anyone else until I see you again" And then, troubl JASE.... is a total package... bad boy, tattoo artist, gorgeous, pierced and of course tattooed.

There were times that I wanted to personally give Jase a kick. That boy can be frustrating. Jase ooo Jase But the ending was so sweet <3 This story was heartbreaking, frustrating, sad and at the same time filled with love. If you want a bad boy dosage, JASE is your man. Will I Recommend? YES Happy reading D xo **ARC provided for tour**

    I was originally sold with tattoo hottie. But this was... and not in the good way. The first 20% of the book, I was thinking woohooo I got a good one! I loved Jase and how he was with Carly. Dirty talker, sweet guy. Coming off a summer romance at the Jersey Shore, he's visiting her for 4 days, Carly attends college. And quite honestly Im not sure where that even is. I wish I was joking, but the book is very back and forth and has holes that get filled in after the fact, if at all. All is good unt I was originally sold with tattoo hottie.

I wish I was joking, but the book is very back and forth and has holes that get filled in after the fact, if at all. All is good until that 20% mark. They are at a hotel, had some foreplay, talked, and went to bed happy. She wakes up, he tells her that his ex girlfriends father has died and he has to go home. Just like that, he's confused the shit out of me and is a complete dick to her. Then he says she was just a fling, its over and flies back home. From that point on things just went crazy for me. There was so much hot and cold with these two. Non communication. Assumptions. Which we all know cause unnecessary drama. Which causes the story to go off track, which can tend to be annoying. In this case, it was. One minute they are good, making this long distance thing work. Then he's taking off, and she's being immature deleting his number and getting rid of the phone so he cant reach her. Then they are back on. Then off. Then on. Then off, and at one point 9 months has gone by. I was like what the fuck! So back and forth got old. The fights and miscommunication got old. Then I noticed holes in the story/timeline. Someone dies and there's no details of what, where, how (and its a key person) and not even a proper notification. When does a friend just show up announcing someone died, but doesn't say how? No police. It was a head shaking, scratch your head moment. The story continues onto another topic, and then after a while out of nowhere its revealed how that person died. It was like pockets of information thrown here and there. Jase had this big secret he kept from Carly, which wasn't even bad. Had he been honest he likely would've gotten more brownie points with Carly. And the fucked up thing is this story had all the potential to be a badass. I liked the Jase and Carly from the first 20% of the book, with some common sense, and I would've given this a damn 4 or 5 stars. This book left me

Review A bit unbelievable at times and confusing when the timelines started picking up but overall it was a cute, angsty and enjoyable read.  Carly’s character was a spit-fire but innocent and lovable while Jase was a tattooed “bad boy” even though his world revolved around Carly.  They had their times of getting on my nerves with how farfetched their romance panned out to be, especially toward the end where Jase tries to win back his girl.  He could be so romantic at times and then at other times – such a total DICK!!  I wanted to yell at Carly to get the hell out of the relationship and STAY OUT but then there were times I wanted her to give in to Jase and live HEA! The beginning of the book and up to the part of the surprise death of a grandmother was great….but at this point of the book and on – I found myself continually rolling my eyes. Re-Cap Carly is staying with her dad for the summer in New Jersey and meets Jase at a bonfire one night.  She is attracted to him but knows that she has to leave soon to go back to college on the other side of the US.  Jase on the other hand knows he wants Carly and continually puts all his moves on her until Carly finally breaks down and agrees to date. We follow Jase and Carly through long distance relationships, heartbreak, missed opportunities to take Carly’s virginity and secrets which shouldn’t have been kept in the past. They experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows during a few years that this book spans in the life of Jase and Carly.  Wrap-Up Enjoyable read but over the top of believable at the end.   For more reviews, Free E-books and Giveaways

He claimed to be devoted but had no problem abandoning her. I didn't buy his feelings for the h. Plus, the h was a virgin but behaved so overtly sexual that it didn't make sense.

They want to prove their H or h is really hot so they go overboard at the amount and type of attention the character receives from others. Let me put it another way, what if it was the H's father looking at the h's butt? Gross, right? Furthermore, the H's brothers find the h's panties and pass them around sniffing them. That is so wrong!!!! They also act like sexual deviants. I am on the fence about reading the next book.

    Worst book I ever read ... DO NOT READ !!! the dialog was horrible the plot was all over the place and the writing was just poor. I really hate criticizing someone's else's writing but this book was just not good. I felt like the author didn't even go back and read it through it was just sloppy.

    Warning: Rambling is about to ensue Okay... I'm not sure how to even begin this review. I am so confused right now, but I will try to make this as coherent as possible. This book was like the ultimate emotional roller coaster, and not really in a good way. I don't think I've ever read a book where the H/h break up and get back together so many times! Seriously, it was like a never ending case of whiplash. I couldn't decide if I liked either character. In the beginning, Carly kind of irritated me w Warning: Rambling is about to ensue Okay...

This book was like the ultimate emotional roller coaster, and not really in a good way. I don't think I've ever read a book where the H/h break up and get back together so many times! Seriously, it was like a never ending case of whiplash. I couldn't decide if I liked either character. In the beginning, Carly kind of irritated me with how shy and hot and cold she was, but eventually I found it somewhat endearing. Jase was a f**king basket case in my opinion though. I couldn't figure out if he was just messing with Carly because he wanted to get in her pants, or if he actually liked her. When it became clear he was actually into her, I softened towards him. So, my thoughts were: Their initial romance was pretty sweet, although there was a little to much of the hot/cold going on for my taste. And I thought they jumped into trusting each other, especially Jase, with a long distance relationship pretty casually. But what the hell, it's fiction. Unfortunately, things became increasingly far fetched as the book progressed, and some eye rolling ensued. some minor spoilers coming up... I was pretty excited when Jase showed up to visit Carly, and I was thinking, finally we are getting to some sexy times. Wrong. Things went to shit pretty abruptly, leaving me very confused and annoyed with Jase. I mean what the hell?! Who treats someone like that, especially the girl he was supposedly "falling for." And then of course there's the obligatory miscommunication involving Carly's male friend, and Jase proceeds to be an even bigger ass, which I didnt think was really possible. I actually applauded Carly's determination to try and not let Jase f**k with her even more, but I was not pleased with what happened with Brad. And then she goes home for Christmas. I mean really, how much is a woman supposed to take?! Talk about being kicked while you're down. I thought Jase really screwed with Carly's head, and I quickly started traveling down the road of not liking him. So they're back together at this point, she know's the reason why he left and broke with her (which I thought was pretty bullshit by the way), and, surprise surprise, his asshole ways rear its ugly, annoying head again. Gah! The Valentines day disaster stole the rest of my patience with him. What is his problem with COMMUNICATION?! I didnt think it was possibly for someone to be so utterly stupid and destructive. Of course, Jase provides some half-assed excuses for his behavior, not making me feel ANY sympathy for him. I mean really? Carly is just supposed to wait around like a love sick puppy while you get your head out of your ass? And then all his little pathetic apologies and "reasons" for his actions. Time flies pretty quickly, and like 6 months are condensed into about 1 page. Then shit gets pretty devastating for Carly. I actually found myself getting a little teary, and thinking, jesus christ, this chicks life SUCKS. She moves back to Jersey, where, duh, she encounters Jase again. He's all nice and playing it cool (which lasts about 5 seconds), and he does some really weak groveling. And guess what? They get back together. I cant decide if Carly is a total doormat, or just really naive and into a guy treating her like shit. I kept waiting to really like this book, but it never happened. The beginning held so much promise, I don't know what happened. It was sweet, then a disaster for about 75% of the book, and then ended extremely abruptly.

    Jase was a roller coaster ride. HOT DAMN! Jase with Carly was fire. However, after like a certain chapter... it's like their flames go out. Someone blew them out.. and I don't even understand why! So things are heating up between them and then he leaves. He left because his ex girlfriends father has just died. I don't know why he was all shook up about it.. or why he was so determined to leave.. but hey, it's not my life. Then Jase goes from swoonworthy to a douche bag in .05 seconds flat.

I get that some books are like that.. the whole hot and cold kind of moments flip-flopping throughout the book. For some reason, this book just really rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe it was my mood that turned me off of it. Or the characters. Or mostly Jase. Or Carly. OR BOTH BECAUSE THEY ARE SO FREAKING IMMATURE. Yeah, this book really annoyed me. I hope that the next book is better. Please let it be.

I soooo wanted it to explain to me what made Jase so reckless before Carly, but it did not do that until later in the story. Both main characters are very likeable but Jase was extremely moody!!! I wish Jase hadn't pushed Carly so hard sometimes!! :( Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed Carly from the start, but it took me longer to really like Jase. He's actions seemed more like a 13 yr old boy than a 23ish yr old man. I just wish it hadn't been so hard for Carly and Jase to get their crap together!! Jase definitely kept his struggle his own and didn't learn til much later to trust Carly enough to tell her the truth. I think that things would have been much smoother with the story, if Jase had just been up front with Carly in California. I know he thought he was sparing her his "crap", but he didn't see that he was the one hurting her and that she was different and what he needed to make it through his "crap." What happens to Carly late in the book, broke my heart and was made worse by Jase not knowing!! Of course he redeams himself and Carly, being the good girl she is, forgives him very quickly and then we see Jase emerge as the man he was meant to be once he got his girl for real!! Now this Jase was something to behold!! I sure hope we get to see more of them in the future because I don't feel the ending was long enough!! Jase was finally becoming the man he should have been earlier in the book and then it ended??? (Like a movie on LMN or Hallmark!! hahahahaha)....WTH?!?! hahahaha. Overall though, it is a great start to a series I know will get better and better!! Please Ms. Fields....make Jase and Carly happy from now on!! ;) I can't wait to read more about these crazy characters and watch Ms. Fields progression in storytelling!!

Changing tense in the middle of a sentence is not cool. Also, it's means it is; that's means that is, etc. There, their, they're...are not interchangeable words. They all mean something different. #2 - The premise - This story has a good premise (which is why it's a 2-star rather than a 1-star) but half the time, the reader has zero idea of what's going on. i.e. (view spoiler)[When Carly's mom dies, we don't know how until 20 pages later. Did she have a heart condition? Were there any warning signs? Nope. She's just grading papers one day and drops dead. Hmmmm...really? (hide spoiler)] And Jase and his family. What's with them? There is such weird dialogue going on with them, it is hard to figure out who is saying what and what they are saying when you figure it out. Honestly, writing this review is giving me a headache. Dear Ms. Fields - get a better editor. Heck...send the book to me and let me edit what you've already put out and I'll bet it comes out a lot better. Do yourself a favor, don't read this book. You'll be as confused as I am and, your head may not hurt as much, but you may be tempted to throw the book across the room or in the trash. *smh*

    I've definitely found a new tattooed, pierced badboy to swoon over! Jase Steel was definitely a playboy, but that all changed when he met Carly, she made him want to change for the better; with her he found a reason to forget about the fuck up he used to be and consider the possibility of actually having a future again. I loved how intensely he felt for Carly, some of the things he told her were absolutely beautiful.

Jase definitely had some douchebag moments though, but I can forgive him for it especially when you consider how his world shifted on it's axis when he came to visit her. When he was forced to disappoint her again around Valentine's Day, I was heartbroken for Carly. Life kept on getting in the way & keeping Jase from Carly and she was kept in the dark during these times, which ultimately wound up being too much for Carly. All of the heartbreak that these two had to endure during their separation could have been avoided if Jase would have just communicated with Carly. Even with his communicaiton shortcomings, I loved how Jase grew & matured from his experience. This was a great hidden gem that I stumbled upon, and I'm so happy I did! Jase Steel is definitely swoon-worthy reformed playboy and I hope that we get to see more of Jase & Carly in the forthcoming of the Men of Steel novels.

One would think Carly would wise up and stay away, but no. The book wouldn't have the happy HOT ending if that were the case, right? (hide spoiler)] I liked this one, but I thought the characters were pretty immature most of the time despite being in some maturing situations. There were plenty of hilarious scenes as well. Carly gets herself into some interesting positions, and Jase's brothers provide some comic relief as well albeit a bit raunchy.

    Jase is a sexy tattoo artist that has some enjoyable piercings and knows how to please a woman. When he meets Carly he starts with the little games of "fake dating" to spend time with her while she's visiting. Their friendship is an interesting one to say the least.

    Kristy /Obsessed with Romance

    I almost skipped this one because I saw a few negative reviews, but I had already spent the money so I figures WTF. I am so glad I didn't miss this one. I really liked it. It's not perfect, but damn is it good. I LOVED Jase, I mean I LOOVVEEDDD him and you know what, he totally deserves it which made me love him more. And Carly was young, and maybe a little impulsive, but seriously, anyone with an ounce empathy can understand her motivations. Yes, this couple has a few back-and-forth's but you k I almost skipped this one because I saw a few negative reviews, but I had already spent the money so I figures WTF. I am so glad I didn't miss this one. I really liked it. It's not perfect, but damn is it good. I LOVED Jase, I mean I LOOVVEEDDD him and you know what, he totally deserves it which made me love him more. And Carly was young, and maybe a little impulsive, but seriously, anyone with an ounce empathy can understand her motivations. Yes, this couple has a few back-and-forth's but you know what? I believed them all. Sometimes life/timing/karma just screws with you, and it screwed with these two...but I totally bought it. The end was a little fantasitcal, but whatever, this isn't real life, and that stuff was peripheral. The romance was sweet and sad and solid. I will definitely be reading the next book.

Fields was exactly what I was looking for when I was searching for an entertaining love story that was filled with an ample amount of drama. Despite catching a few pacing and flow issues, I had a really good time reading this book! In this series premier of the Men of Steel series, we meet the first Steel brother, Jase. He works in the family business that specializes in tattoos and piecings, and for the past few years has been living his life on the edge. During a summer beach party, his best friend Abe brings along his cousin, and Carly catches Jase’s eye immediately. However, when she notices that Jase is in a rocky relationship with a jealous hothead, Carly stays away despite Jase’s mild flirting. After breaking up with Pam, Jase takes a chance at catching… and keeping Carly’s attention, but their volatile summer fling is put on hold when she heads back to the west coast for collage. Throughout their on-again-off-again relationship, they hit their fair share of obstacles and misunderstandings that makes it impossible for them to enjoy one another for any stretch of time. After finishing college, Carly is offered a job in New Jersey where Jase lives, but any hopes of being with him are long gone. What was supposed to be the research assignment of a life-time ends up being more than she ever bargained for. As you can tell, I’m keeping quite a few of the details in the shadows, but suffice it to say, Jase and Carly are one hot mess! Throughout Carly’s college years, she and Jase try unsuccessfully to have a long distance relationship. It was hard to see Carly struggle with certain emotional moments only to have Jase create added turmoil in her life. I think the issue I had with them as a couple was that I never really felt they made a good pair. Jase did his growing up behind the scenes because we got very few perspective chapters from him. Carly went through a significant amount of tough times while in college and having Jase drive her batty didn’t feel right for me. The strangest part to this whole equation was that I really like both characters individually, but not as a pair. So I believe I might enjoy reading their novella , as well as the other books in the series to get snippets of these two in order to convince myself that they work well together. As far as the writing goes, there were evident issues with the pacing and flow. That was clear when I would read certain excerpts and feel like I might have missed a paragraph or two. I’d lose track of characters and find myself lost for a few paragraphs. However, strangely enough I still enjoyed this story immensely. I laughed at a few scenes here and there. Some of which I’m not quite sure were intended to be funny. I got frustrated with the characters in a way that wasn’t close to be annoying. Overall, I enjoyed this books despite the less than flawless execution. As I said before, I look forward to reading more about the Steel brothers in the other installments. Bring it on!

    Jase is possessive or protective of Carly, I mean I would be too, "well she isn't your girlfriend," Jase glared at him, "So it's none of your fu..." They love to tease each other and for Jase well that situation gets a little 'hard', "it's not funny. S*** is getting really tight down there. Buttons are going to fly." And Carly she appreciates his endowments, "he was hung, like really hung, that beautiful thing. Hung. Not just laid there - it effing hung!"

Carly has a temper and well Jase is the one that gets it, "leave! Just leave!" He looked surprised which pissed me off," What am I supposed to be happy? This is effed up. I really just wish you hadn't come at all. There you have it. Is that what you are waiting for me to be pi**ed Jase? Do you want me to hit you like she did? I am not her! Just go!" Jase he's really possessive of his girl even when his brothers are concerned probably more so, "as I told them when I walked out and found them passing the panties, you're mine. They sniffed once and if they do it again I'll cut them when they are asleep." Jase is just so hot you can't help but love him, "Eff Carly," he pulled out of my mouth, and I caught his piercing between my teeth and he stopped, "you gonna let go of that?" I shook my head no, "So now you're going to drag me around by my c*** AND my heart?" I'm excited for the rest of the boys's stories.

    While I enjoyed this book I did feel like the author took that readers were on her wave length for granted. It felt like there were whole chunks of story missing and as a reader I was forever playing catch up. It is clearly just this particular authors style which is interesting, but it makes the characters so much harder to know. I spent a lot of time (at least the first 20%) really having no idea who these people were and what was going on. The book definitely suffered because of it.

I spent a lot of time (at least the first 20%) really having no idea who these people were and what was going on. The book definitely suffered because of it. I didn't understand why Carly or Jase were having such extreme reactions to what seemed like very simple conversations. A phone call. A children's birthday party. It didn't compute and I was desperately looking for some context. Overall, the book and these characters had such promise. I just needed more to work with.

    I had a hard time following the timeline of this book and what was actually happening in it. They broke up, got back together, and broke up again and I can't for the life of me remember why? I really liked Jase, total stud. But Carly is kind of a whiny girl that doesn't want to be a whiny girl. Her thoughts were confusing and jumbled. I really wanted to love this book but it didn't happen for me.

    This was my first M.J. Fields book and I LOVED IT!!! Jase ended up being an even greater guy than I had imagined. I totally loved him. I laughed, cried (lots), yelled, at times I wanted to choke someone, and while I didn't always like the way things turned out, I ended up really enjoying this book. I look forward to reading another M.J. Fields book.

    I Liked! The reading was pleasant and engaging characters. I love tattooed heroes and heroines with attitude. Read non-stop and the story was very good! Has the end with HEA! I'm curious to read the story of the other brothers Steel!

    This was a hot mess. It was slapped together like a poorly sewn patchwork quilt. None if the pieces matched up and the pattern didn't make any damn sense. Then, imagine the quilt was fabricated straight from the Twilight Zone...Freaking weird.

    A good story but it was a bit rushed at times in my opinion. But overall a good read.

Bickering and petty nonsense They go almost a year without talking, then something "sad" happens revolving Carly Bickering "Friendship" Bickering and petty CHILDISH nonsense Romance HEA The End. I'll be honest, I tried with this book, I really, really, REALLY tried, but unfortunately it fell short in quite a few ways. It just didn't take me to that magical, happy book place that I know, love, and crave more of. (That rhymed, hah) The story was mediocre. I will say the first 20 percent of it was pretty good, but as soon as Jase and Carly went to that damn hotel, it all went downhill. This book did have potential but fell so damn flat, as nothing really grabbed me or made me feel any inspired, exciting, anxious, swoon-worthy, wild, crazy emotions. Also, there's this "tragic event" that takes place around 68% in (percentage will differ) and it shocked the hell out of me and not in a good way AT ALL. Everything happened much too quickly, I felt like this sad event was added in the story (without much thought) to add a little sympathy/sadness and a little something "extra." All this accomplished was leaving me so friggin' confused and agitated. For something that is supposed to be a very significant, serious situation, it felt rushed, premature and confusing as all hell. The whole damn event felt like it was on fast forward. Epitome of space filler. This book was just so dull, and after a while it grew tedious to continue on with. And let's not even talk about it being predictable...hah The characters, Jase and Carly, both have the brain capacity of a damn ostrich. Jase had absolutely no sex appeal, didn't make me all hot and bothered and a bundle of hormonal madness. He was bi-polar, idiotic, annoying, and both him and Carly's mood swings were ten notches past way too extreme. There was just nothing unbelievable about him and the whole time reading this book I actually had flashbacks of how boys in my 6th grade class used to act. The problem is, Jase is in his early twentys. I'm not sure if the author intended for Jase to come across so childish, petty, and a walking contradiction, but if not, she inadvertently succeeded in doing so. Carly was another winner. She was so unbelievably confusing. One minute she was a prudey prude who had trouble saying the word V-A-G-I-N-A, (tee heh, oh my golly gosh) instead calling it her "who who" but another minute she had the mouth of a truck driver and the thoughts and actions of a seasoned hooker. While they both had their individual flaws and annoying qualities, teamed up these two were a fucking nightmare. Half the time what they said made no damn sense, they argued over the most petty, insignificant things and there was no absolutely no communication (scratch that, there was communication just not intelligent and coherent communication.) Relationship 411: communication is key. And the constant gaps in their relationship were fucking annoying. The best was when they both went almost a year without seeing/talking to each other, and Jase is trying to pacify the situation by telling Carly he worked his ass off during that time for her, because he loved her. At this point I wanted to strangle him. Why not be honest? Why go a whole fucking year and then stomp back into her life and feed her some bullshit about doing this for her. Carly was definitely no prize, but Jase took the fucking cake. Douche to the bag x ten. Another thing that got under my skin was they both acted so juvenile and there was just no substance to them. The yo-yoing gave me a headache, one minute they love each other, the next they are fighting acting like a bunch of 12 year olds. The constant bickering about absolutely NOTHING was too much. It was as if the both of them were just not competent enough to talk with each other and try to work out their annoying ass, minor, pretty problems instead of just hanging up the phone or running away all the time. Even the "sexy-times" were bland and their dirty talk was almost laughable. The actual story line was also uneventful. This "big secret" that Jase was keeping from Carly was no big shocker at all. If anything, if this "secret" was told right up front in the beginning, this story might have had some potential and the end result could have been very different. But sadly it missed the mark so many times I really just wanted to be done with it and move on. This book literally went from one extreme to the other. I don't mind drama but there has to be some middle ground. Unfortunately, with this book there wasn't, and it gave me a terribly case of book whip lash. One page Jase and Carly are pronouncing their love for one another, then the next damn page they are fighting over god knows what, making no damn sense, and Jase acting like a certified twat rag. Another BIG con was a lot of times while reading, I didn't know which person I was actually reading about. I had to go back so many times to figure out if it was Jase that was saying something, or if it was Carly. And don't get me started with the brothers. I gave up trying to figure out who was saying what when I read Forever Steel. So as much as I hate to write up reviews with me nit picking and complaining, I have to be honest with my thoughts and feelings. Some people will absolutely adore this book and for that it's worth a go ahead to read. I will still continue on with the series because I am looking forward to Zandor and will not throw in the towel just because one book didn't fascinate me, but I seriously hope that this book is not an indication of what's to come. I really hope not, or it going to be a grueling few days. Happy Reading!
