What is it about?

(Blurb from GoodReads)

The witness protection program has given me the fresh start I’ve always dreamed of. A new home. A new name. A new life. For the first time in ten years it feels like I can breathe again.

But the cost of freedom is more than I bargained for. I put my foster father behind bars. It doesn’t matter that he deserved it. What matters is that he’s powerful, manipulative, and now he wants me dead.

I can feel someone watching me. I know my time is running out. And the only other person who cares if I live or die is a masked stranger. So I’m putting my life in the vigilante’s hands. And maybe a piece of my heart along with it. Even though I’m worried that he’s just as dangerous as the man I sent to prison.

Thoughts on Made of Steel

Oddly compelling

With a Superman vibe (or maybe daredevil?) this romance is a mystery wrapped in darkness, with more questions than answers and a past that is creeping ever closer.

The characters are a bit hard to relate to and the history that seeps through the pages is almost as debilitating for the reader as it is for Summer. It’s not a dark read, nor could it be classified as rough…. but there is an undertone of mystic and shadow that catches and holds on.

My Final Verdict on Made of Steel

4 out of 5 Stars

This is more a vigilante romance than a Super Hero novel, which makes the narrative that much more appealing. If you enjoy a story that doesn’t spoon feed the details, or the past, this is the mystery for you. With the complete series available on Kindle Unlimited, it promises a few days of literary satisfaction… though not the full picture you may crave.
