Review:

Softer Than Steel (A Love & Steel Novel) - Jessica Topper

As rock star “Riff Rotten”, Rick Rottenberg has enjoyed all the perks that fame can offer, especially now that he’s reunited with his former band mate, Adrian “Digger” Graves. But despite his success, Rick is a mess. Still reeling from the death of his wife years ago and terrified his demons will end his career, he agrees to seek help for his anxiety.

Burned by a musician in the past, Sidra Sullivan has closed her heart to love. So when Rick walks into her yoga studio, she wants nothing to do with him–until the bad boy shows an unexpected soft side.

As Sidra and Rick work through their painful pasts, they realize just how strongly opposites can attract. But when a crisis threatens the delicate balance they’ve forged, they’ll discover if their love is strong enough to weather another storm or just too broken to survive…

 

Review

 

I liked so much about this book.

 

Topper’s writing is perfectly pitched with detail, nuance, and insight. Her characters are flawed and lovable just the same.

 

The main characters here are like to stones striking a spark and that spark is this unexpected love story.

 

He is much older than her and changing his life. She is so much herself and yet settling into herself.

 

All the little moments and facets of the characters are what make this a great romance so I don’t want to give those things away.

 

What held the book back for me, were little things, we never really address the hero’s past before he reformed in any real way. We don’t get to meet his kids with any depth. I would like more time in the HEA but this is a goooood book worth your time and money.
