A Different Christmas

Two people. Two upbringings. One Christmas.

Sam was brought up to her happy family gathering at Christmas. Filled with many traditions that as an adult she thought were normal for everyone.

Getting ready to finish work for the holidays to go home to her family in Scotland, was her idea of fun and relaxation. Well, that was until her boss, Luke, told her he was dragging her to New York for work.
Much to Sam’s irritation, she has to go along and attend New York before flying home on Christmas Eve.

Luke grew up with parents that had a multimillionaire company and wanted for nothing. Apart from a family to celebrate Christmas with.

Luke grew up thinking he had what everyone had at Christmas, until he grew up and realized that Christmas is a family occasion.

Two characters that clash at the slightest thing is a recipe for disaster. Throw Sam and Luke into New York and it is either a make or break for their working relationship.

Would Christmas be different after this year?

Review by Gia:
Possession is book three in the Steel Brothers Saga.  It can not be read as a standalone, you must read the first two before reading this one.   It picks up where Obsession left off.  I love Talon.  He's a tortured soul and I was so hoping that he could work things out and have a happy ever after.  Talon has been keeping secrets of what happened to him when he was younger.  In this one he comes clean and tell his brothers and sister what happened to him.  I loved the growth in Jade and Talon's relationship.    Some odd things are happening in town and  Jade keeps stumbling on things but we still don't have all the answers.  I was kind of hoping that we would get all the answers but there are still many things that are still a mystery.  I can't wait to read more.

Book: Reckless Abandon
Author: Elle Luckett
Genre: Erotic Romance/BDSM


Nixie Fitzgerald is locked in a prison of her own making. 
After her failed marriage, she built too many walls to let her guard down completely. There was no satisfaction in the few relationships she managed to have after the divorce, and going further than the third interaction takes trust – something Nixie will never give to a man freely again. The scars of her past run too deeply. 
When Jackson Hancock enters her world in a tempestuous crash of chaos, he shakes the very foundation Nixie has built, and she has no choice but to open her eyes and see the formidable man for what he is. There is no hiding from Jackson or his intense and demanding nature, and she's no longer sure that she wants to. Everything Nixie thought she knew is challenged, and her well thought out plans for the future are replaced with a rocky path of uncertainty. 
Can Jackson finally bring down Nixie's mental walls of pain and doubt, infiltrate her heart and ask her to give herself over to him in Reckless Abandon, or will Nixie’s past finally catch up with her and destroy everything?
