What happens when a man who thinks he doesn't deserve love saves a woman who longs for nothing more than love? Add the fact that Cyrus is an alpha and Tara is a strong one herself and you've got quite a story. Did I mention that he has some ridiculous 3 times no strings sex limit and she is a virgin? Oh yeah...there's an interesting dynamic for sure especially since the Steel brothers are known to be naughty boys and the kings of the dirty talk. He pursues Tara hard, but after their first time she runs not wanting to be a burden to him. Of course Cyrus chases after her. When he brings her home they grow closer and start a relationship, but when he begins to feel too vulnerable it was his turn to run. (wanted to kick him hard - *teamTara) Tara tugged at my heart hard with everything she went through growing up and I love the strong, brave woman that she became despite it.
I give Cyrus 4 hearts!
About the Book
Cyrus is the oldest of the Steel brothers. Strong, independent and damaged by love. He likes his life just the way it is. Or so he thinks. When he meets beautiful and sexy Tara, he is smitten immediately. He begins to peruse her for a good time, but as he discovers Tara's situation, his alpha male protective instinct kicks into overdrive.
Tara is child of the foster care system that can't remember ever being loved and feeling safe. She is being mistreated, tricked and exploited by her boyfriend, Tony. A man who just wishes to possess and use her. Cyrus saves Tara from Tony and the riffraff he is involved with, giving her asylum at his home as he generously works things out for her. But as they spend more time together Cyrus' barrier and his three-times-only-with-no-strings-Rule disintegrates. But Cyrus had hurt and disillusioned. He does not like being vulnerable, feeling things that he wants to hold on to, he retaliates and takes the easy road back to status quo. Will Cyrus realize that he has a great thing, and that this love will not hurt him again in time to win her back? Or will he loose her forever?
