Book Review - Cyrus by MJ Fields

My Thoughts

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?

About the Author

MJ Fields had no clue what she was getting into when she began the journey of writing. She say's, "I still don't--but I like it!"

Her imagination became apparent at age three. Sigma was her very first (imaginary) boyfriend. He lived about fifteen miles from her family's farm. She took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of their snowmobiles.(Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and "Thank God" she was able to take care of him.

At eight her love for writing blossomed. Together with her cousins (of course she was the president) they wrote a newsletter and sold it to their family members.

Years later she decided to put it back into print to entertain her cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11, very far away from home during a scary time for our country.

Fast forward to 2012. She read 50 Shades and thought, 'I wanna do that!' (meaning writing).
She has two complete series, The Love Series and Wrapped. There are also two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel that are as of now not complete. Thirteen books in sixteen months. CrAzY and wonderful.

She loves love!

Her Mom raised her right. She says please and thank you and means it. She expects the same out of  her child. 'It's the right thing to do.' 

Her mother taught her to take care of herself and others. 'I don't like leaving the house without mascara even if I'm in an oversized hoody and warm up pants.'

Her Dad taught her how to work hard and never expect to be handed anything. She likes to work and doesn't mind getting dirty. 

Both taught her to be respectful and the importance of doing the right thing regardless of what people around her do. They taught her about the importance of family and that it didn't always just include blood relatives. They also tried to teach her how to keep my thoughts to myself...she is still working on that.

MJ tends to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head.

She loves people and has always been able to see both sides of a story. 'Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.'

She lives in central New York in the middle of nowhere and is surrounded by family and friend most the time. She ran a small business out of her home and has recently closed her door to pursue this dream full time. She spends time writing and doing the typical Mommy things. Her house is full of pets, friends, and noise ninety percent of the time, and she would have it no other way.
