    One thought on “The Strongest Steel”

    1. DNF @28%, no rating.Like he was a teenage girl or something, he’d gone to bed without brushing his teeth so he could continue to appreciate her sweet flavor, wondering how the rest of her would taste. I've decided to throw in the towel when I read this quote. It's not sexy at all. It's not sweet either. Fact is, it's more along the line of…ewwwwI thought the story had potential but failed to deliver. It was way too sugary-sweet for my liking and I felt compelled to call the endearment police [...]

    2. Infatuation is when you find somebody who is absolutely perfect.Love is when you realize that they aren’t and it doesn’t matterVE #macncheese STARSTrent Andrews and Harper Connelly ♥The way her body fit against his perfectly,like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle,was so incredibly good it scared him.Barely surviving has become my purposeBecause I'm so used to living underneath the surface ►♫So I just finished this novel.

    4. This story was amazing! Scarlett Cole came into the author world and kicked some ass with this novel, and I am extremely grateful that I got to read it.

    8. Just awesome. The life Harper was living was not the one she should. She had been through so much and it was still living the hell every day. Harper couldn't get away from the nightmare she had been through. Until she decided to make a big change in her life she was fed up of living in fear of everything. She just didn't know that the biggest change in her life was goin to be Trent Andrews. Trent's life was pretty good he had his own Tattoo shop Second Circle and it was doing brilliant.

    9. Trent is a 32 yr old tattoo artist who owns tattoo parlor Second Circle. Harper is running from an ex who severely traumatized her and later her family. She's been in Miami for 4 years now and is barely existing. Taylor has heard of Trent and knows he has a specialty of tattooing over scar tissue which leads to their initial meeting.Trent is one of the better MC's I've read in awhile. He was old enough to be more mature and knew what he wanted out of life. I loved the way Trent handles Harper's [...]

    10. 4 Transforming Stars * * * *Every once in a while I will stumble across a book's blurb no nothing about the author or whether I shouldd just be drawn to read this idea presented to meBlurbs are supposed to make us curious and want for moreWell, Scarlett Cole did her her job because I made sure I had a copy and am glad I did.This is a story of a woman who survived a horrific event in her life and was trying to move forward as best she could. It was interesting from the start. We know she is hidin [...]

    11. This book had everything I could possibly want in a story - A strong heroine who suffered something unimaginable but survived, a sexy tattoo artist who's top book boyfriend material, fantastic supporting characters, suspense, drama, and sexy times. I LOVED this book! Harper has scars that she wants covered so she goes to Second Circle to see Trent who specializes in tattooing over scars. There is immediate chemistry between these two and Trent recognizes something special in Harper and wants to [...]

    12. It is very common and repeatable type of story, but have to admit it's very pleasant to read. With the predictability of what happens it is always that, it depends on the amount of books you read like this. And while nothing surprised me, I believe that many will be delighted."The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fire"About the plot: Harper Connelly runs away from her past. She was attacked by her ex-boyfriend and even though he is now in prison and she is far from home, can not deal wit [...]

    13. Writing: I had a love-hate relationship with Scarlett Cole’s writing. It appears she is a researcher which feeds the student within. I learned some interesting things while reading this. It also encouraged me to research some concepts further. BUT then there was.t sure what to call it. The characters would do or say something, but Cole would forget that sometimes actions and words have implications on other parts of the story. Is that called ‘follow through?’ I don’t know. Characters: MC [...]

    14. 4 - The strongest steel is forged in the hottest fire. Stars!The Strongest Steel is the first book in the Second Circle Tattoos Series, and Scarlett Cole, being a new author has managed to take a set of pretty well used tropes and give them a refreshing and enjoyable new spin. ”Welcome to Second Circle.”Harper Connelly has spent the last four years working an anonymous job, in a non-descript coffee house, and trying hard to not draw any attention to herself in Miami. Her past; nothing but a [...]

    15. *** 4 amazing stars. ***It's a great book for sure. Captivating and beautiful. A really sweet story. I really liked Trent. And his music taste. AC/DC and Metallica and Iron Maiden in one book? Who could think of that? He rocks, he's totally awesome. (Sure must of the tattoo artists are Rock fans but no one is as incredible as him). I admired him for many reasons, like for understanding how to treat Harper, pushing her to the limits and then knowing when he has to stop. Also, I respect Harper for [...]

    16. 4 Amor condusse noi ad una morte starsHarper Connelly is a scarred woman. Literally and figuratively. When she goes to a tattoo artist specialized in covering scars, she may start an emotional journey she's not ready to embark in.I really liked how empowering this story was. Harper may start off as a scaredy cat (she's got every right to be), but as the story progresses you can see her become stronger and more fearless.Trent was also another great character. He reminded me at time of Cam from "W [...]

    17. 3.5 I've got mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, I loved the characters Harper and Trent were both characters that I felt were interesting on their own and the story line, although predictable was still entertaining. On the other hand, I just didn't feel a very strong connection between Harper and Trent at least not as strong as I would have liked. There was just something "off" about their chemistry to me. That being said, I still enjoyed the story. Trent was patient and caring for [...]

    18. A young woman with just enough courage to walk into a tattoo shop.A guy with just enough creativity to see beauty within the ugly scars.Together they create a masterpiece while erasing the horrors of the past.I gotta say, the premise is one that has been done before. However, there is just enough “extra” to make this feel different from the others. Maybe it’s the level of innocence and caring we get from Harper Connelly as we watch her journey into pain in order to rid of it emotionally. M [...]

    19. A beautiful 4 star readA wonderful debut by the author! It is a beautiful story of a girl tortured by her past and her knight in shining armorHarper is tired of her actions being defined by her past. She has a constant reminder of the trauma she suffered in the form of scars on her back. She wants to move on from her past and move forward in life. The first step to take back her past is to get a tattoo over her scars and for this she visits the tattoo studio Second Circle and meets owner Trent w [...]

    20. “This mountains of such sort that climbing it is hardest at the start; but as we rise, the slope grows less unkind.” - Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy - Color me impressed, the debut novel by Ms. Cole was really good. But there were some things that irritated me so I docked a star. I also found it refreshing and the book got me out of my book funk and that is always good for me. I know that the whole stalker thing has been done, although this can’t really be defined as a stalker book. T [...]

    21. Full review at afterdarkbooklovers/2015/0I really enjoyed it. All in all, a solid debut by Ms. Cole, I am definitely interested in continuing with this series and reading Drea and Cujo’s story next.**ARC provided by publisher via netgalley for review**

    22. 3.75 starsreally liked this one and it's a debut at that. great plot with a refreshing take on the tattooed bad boy genre. great well rounded main hero and heroine with secondary characters i am really looking forward to learning more of in the next books. i did feel the end drama happened too quick and was resolved too fast considering we spent all the book leading up to it but overall this one was very deserving of its praise!

    23. Really quite surprised by how much I enjoyed this one.With a title like "The Strongest Steel" I went in expecting a bunch of smut. I was so pleasantly surprised how well written it was and the amount of character development. It's so difficult to find good romance books these days that actually develop the characters and work on the build up of the couples relationship.I thought the hero was so incredibly sweet, patient, and sexy. I also loved the heroine and that she didn't constantly push the [...]

    24. Fun, sweet and sexy but still intense and emotional, this book had me glued to my kindle from start to finish. I absolutely loved it!4.5 starsHarper survived a vicious attack which left her scarred – inside and out. She has moved to Miami and assumed a new identify in order to hide from her past, but she still lives with almost debilitating fears. And so, desperate to move on from her past, she summons up her courage to go to the local yet renowned tattoo studio to ask about getting a tattoo t [...]

    25. Harper Connelly started a new life for herself after her ex almost killed her. She came into Trent's Tattoo shop to cover some of her scars with art, and thus began her mental, emotional and physical healing.I loved the writing and the pace of the story. The character development and secondary characters were done really well. One of my favorite things about stories is to watch the evolution of the characters. Here Harper grew stronger and stronger to where she stopped running and fought back. S [...]

    26. I love discovering new authors and after reading The Strongest Steel, Scarlett Cole has definitely been added to my list of must read authors. Seriously, I cannot believe that this was her debut novel!!After fleeing her abusive ex and living in Miami for the past four years, Harper is finally ready to do something about the scars on her back. Of course, she didn't expect to find herself at Second Circle in the middle of the night, but after seeing Trent and not being able to sleep, she decided t [...]

    27. 3.75 RATING- I liked this book and it did pull me in from the beginning. Definitely a formula I like, damaged girl, strong and sexy hero that falls hard. The heroine was not very smart at times. Some parts were just a tad slow. Not put down and come back to days later slow. Just slow in the sense that I didn't have a problem putting the book down and getting to the grocery store and cleaning the kitchen slow =) I was in a book funk and this gave me something to read. I liked it enough but didn't [...]

    28. I love this book! First off, the premise was different, with elements of suspense. The hero was my favorite kind of hero-hot sexy alpha but not a jerk. The heroine was just as wonderful. No whineness or self pity. But my favorite part was the writing itself. I've read many tattoo-artist books but this is the 1st that is very much about the actual tattooing and the art and mechanism behind tattooing. I loved that. I also love that it takes place in my hometown (Miami) and it's always cool when I [...]

    29. This review was originally posted on (un)Conventional BookviewsHarper. She started breaking my heart the first time I met her. She was skittish, didn't want anyone to touch her, and became panicked if someone came too close to her from the back. As her story unfolded, I could understand why, and it was impossible to not admire her strength. She had been betrayed in a horrific way, first by someone she loved, then by those who should have done everything in their power to keep her safe in the aft [...]

    30. HOLY BEGEESUS, what did I just read?!?!?! Scarlett Cole showed up, she wrote, and she blew me totally out of the water! THAT'S a way to make an entrance!!5 Strong as Steel stars from this reader for The Strongest Steel!!Harper Connelly is running. She's running from her ex. She's running from her past. She's running from her demons. She's running for her life! She's decided to cover up the physical scars of her past with a tattoo. Cue Trent Andrews.Trent Andrews is serious book boyfriend mater [...]
