A Steamy Second Chance Romantic Suspense



A Steamy Second Chance Romantic Suspense


Six years ago, he shattered my heart and crushed my dreams.

Brandon f…ing Lewis, the bad boy who dumped me in a text message leaving me with more than just a broken heart, is back. He’s an ex-professional football player oozing with confidence, his cocky grin a reminder of the pain he inflicted. As if fate delights in tormenting me, he’s taken up the role of football coach at Palm Springs High, the very place where I just accepted a dance teacher position.

I hate him with a passion but in this town avoiding him is impossible; he’s everywhere. His presence is a constant reminder of the darkness he brought into my life. He’s hell-bent on reclaiming what was once his. Me.

As the tension between us simmers with unspoken desire, hate turns to fiery nights tangled in his sheets. And with every hot encounter, the carefully constructed walls around my heart begin to crumble.

But what he doesn’t know is I’m not the same girl he left behind. I have secrets that could cause danger for both of us if they were to surface.



One thing I always seem to notice, when you read Steel’s books, she is going to make these characters work for their happily ever after and their love life. There will also be some kind of suspense that keeps your heart lodged in your throat as you work through it. It’s the absolute best.

Fantastic and suspenseful the whole way through, THE FEAR was a nonstop read for me. I devoured it. This author penned something so powerful it grabbed my attention from the start and held on up until the very end. I eagerly read it, needing to know what secrets Brandon and Cassie held. I needed to know that what happened in the past wouldn’t happen again. I wanted them to find their happily ever after.

Loved everything about this book and everything that transpired between Brandon and Cassie. Their story even had me dying to know what other stories these amazing secondary characters were eager to tell. In the end she wrote this story to perfection with a romance that never stopped once. It was right there in every turn, no matter how much they both denied it at first. I. Was. Consumed. 5 Stars!

Well @aksteelauthor you’ve done it again!
Cassie and Brandon are everything…. despite what happened.
It was so good to be back with the girls.
Some of the scenes 🥵🥵🥵
And that ending! I have no words. Im excited for the next book.
And that twist. I didn’t see that coming at all. I thought it was a set up! (You know what I mean)
Can’t wait for the boys either 😉

Cassandra is back in her home town and gets a teaching job at her old high school. Problem, the new football coach is Brandon, the boy who broke her heart. Six years have passed but they both still feel the pull for each other. Cassie tries to fight it, but she’s just hurting herself.
A story of love, forgiveness, following your dreams, and fighting for what you want.
