Haunted and hidden.
Mysterious and sexy, Grayson Falcon steers clear of commitment in all forms. He takes the road less traveled, avoiding the demons of his past and the nightmares they cause. He uses his good looks and country charm to attain pleasure, but it is always a short-lived reprieve.
Sweet and scarred.
Once believing that love can conquer all, Mandee Carlain’s life was then turned upside down and inside out. Her beauty queen good looks and sweet smile always caught the eye of the wrong kind of man. However, as a survivor, she still holds on to hope that one day she will come face to face with the man whose whispered words will give her strength to still believe.
What happens when the hopeless find hope …at the wrong time?
I am so sad that this is this series finished, I have come to love these characters so much and I feel like a part of my heart went with them when it got to “The End”.
Grayson was the one brother I was most excited about reading, in the previous books he’s always been pretty quiet and kept to himself so that what I expected in his own story but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Gray was nothing like I expected him to be and that shocked me, he had kept a secret that I could never have anticipated and my heart broke that he shouldered that burden alone.
Mandee has always been the girl who believed in happily ever after and fairytales even when life has given her many reasons not to. I loved Mandee in the previous books but it got to a whole new level in this book. Mandee was sweet as pie and there were so many times in this book my heart hurt for her.
These two characters haven’t always had things easy, they have lived through some really tough times and have had their faith in humanity tested more than once. The thing is MJ brought this couple to life for me and I instantly fell in love with them, their story touched my heart and I didn’t want it to finish.
MJ Fields has quickly become one of my go to authors, each time I think she can’t bring us a better story than the previous and then she smashes it completely out of the park! Wasted has taken the top spot in my list of MJ Fields books, this couple will definitely stay with me long after I have finished.
I’m really hoping we get a book for Brand and all the rest of the babies that these couples will bring us! This is my favourite book of the series and definitely my favourite couple. I love getting to see the other couples from not only the Steel Country series but also the Men Of Steel series! The way MJ incorporates them is a bonus in my opinion as I love finding out where some of my favourite couples end up!
When I have made peace with my anger, released it in tears and screams and allowed my body to float and release the tension, I simply float, eyes closed, kicking my feet ever so often, moving my arms when I feel I should and allow myself to drift toward reality’s shores.
I feel my foot drag across the lake’s floor and sigh as I push my feet down and stand, opening my eyes.
I gasp when I see him, Grayson, standing on the gravel, my dress over his shoulder and a towel in his hand. His square jaw, peppered with a few days’ worth of growth and slightly lighter than that on his head, his jaw is tight, and I see the muscles in it working. His eyes are so deeply connected to mine it renders me almost unmoving.
The way he looks at me is unrecognizable. Angry? Annoyed?
When his eyes leave mine after what seems like an eternity, then move to my lips, I wonder if there is something on them. Then they slowly, very slowly, move down my body. At this moment, I remember I am in a bra and panties, in front of Grayson Falcon, sexiest man alive.
I quickly sink down to a seated position and curl into myself, hiding myself, incredibly insecure and horrifically embarrassed.
“You’re blue, Mandee, and blue isn’t a good color on you. Come on; get up out of there.”
