    Adrienne Giordano’s Craving Heat

    Maggie Kingston is a tough, no nonsense Sheriff In Steele Ridge. Quarterback Jayson Tucker who not only lost his job but he endorsements. The nonprofit organization he raised money for doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. Go Maggie’s cousin, Griffin brings his Jayson to town. The press flocks to town. Plus Jayson’s sister has problems. They were both raised in a dysfunctional family so meeting Maggie’s family and seeing how they protect and care for each other is something new to them. Maggie sure has her hands full especially when the chemistry between Sheriff and Quarterback gets steamy. Suspense, fast pace, tension, drama and danger, intrigue with lots of thrills and chills plus some romance make for a well blended read. I voluntarily read this eBook. Thanks to the author for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

    Loving the Steele Cousins!

    I’m really enjoying the Kingston family in this newest part of Steele Ridge. It’s difficult for a woman in this family of strong men, but Maggie as the town sheriff can certainly hold her own. Now Jayson comes to town to train at her cousin’s facility. He is a star quarterback who has recently gone from being the golden boy to off the team and embroiled in some scandals, none of his own making. Even hiding out in Steele Ridge is a challenge for him in his quest to lay low and his attraction to Maggie makes things even more difficult. I loved the new characters in this special town and look forward to reading more in the series.

    Maggie's story!

    4 1/2 STARS! Love when she least expects it! If you've been a fan of the Steele Ridge series, you will most definitely recognize the heroine of this book as the Steele family cousin, Maggie. She's always riding to the rescue when they need it, and this first book in the spin-off series about her family The Kingstons is no different. She might have met her match this time in a take charge alpha male that gives her a run for her money! I loved them together! Great read, and I'm looking forward to more of the sibling stories! Maggie Kingston has her job cut out for her as the Sheriff in Steele Ridge, but as we've seen time and time again from seeing her clean up after her trouble-attracting cousins, she's up to the challenge! When Grif brings one of his high-powered clients to town, it brings a media circus like the town has never seen before and leads to problem after problem for Maggie. She'd be even more mad about it ... if she wasn't enjoying every sexy inch of this guy so much! Quarterback Jayson Tucker just had his career crumble down around him after a moment of anger towards a teammate in the locker room played out in front of the media. He's trying to pick up the pieces of the betrayal by the team he's put his all into for all of these years, and finding out there's something shady going on with a charity endorsement is just icing on the cake. Danger seems to be rearing it's ugly head in his direction, and the law in Steele Ridge makes it her personal mission to make sure every inch of him is protected ... and lusted after!

    Fantastic Story and Engaging Characters

    The hot small town sheriff and the superstar football player make for a great romantic couple in Craving Heat by Adrienne Giordano. If you have read the Steele Ridge series, you need to give The Kingstons a read. If you haven’t, well, this is the first book in the new series, so this one is for you, too. Giordano entertains her readers with another book filled with suspense, fun, and romance! Maggie Kingston is the youngest sheriff in Steele Ridge history and feels like she constantly has to prove herself. She takes care of everyone in the county, but who will take care of her? Jayson Tucker is a professional football player looking to lay low for a bit while a potential scandal rocks his world. He is is enjoying his time away from the big city and a lower pace to life. Maggie and Jayson are able to give each other exactly what the other one needs. Their chemistry is undeniable and Giordano does a great job of balancing out their romance with the rest of the story. The conflict in the book is intriguing and I am always excited to watch Giordano unfold a mystery. There is a lot going on in Craving Heat and it keeps the reader interested and flipping pages knowing the story could take off in several directions. I couldn’t wait to get to the end yet didn’t want it to end. I always enjoy supporting characters and Reid and Grif from the Steele Ridge series show up in Craving Heat quite a bit, which is great. If you like romantic suspense, give Craving Heat a read. You will fall in love with the characters and enjoy the story from beginning to end.

    So excited for this series!

    A Steele Ridge spin off series--woot! I love that Maggie Kingston's story is first--she's a female sheriff! And her cousin Reed's main competition for the family record on his training center's absolutely insane obstacle course! (She spends the entire novel trying to beat his time, but I'm not going to tell you if she makes it. You've got to read it yourself to find out. :D) Jay is the perfect match for her--she's the only woman on the planet who will call him on his crazy, and he's the only guy that can make her see that yes, sometimes she does go a little too far when she thinks she and only she knows the *right* way to get things fixed. (Okay, her mom and another cousin helped her here too. But it's Jay that made her reconsider in the first place.) Together they're just awesome--and his inner fixation with her handcuffs made me LOL. Every. Time. The suspense part of the plot was solid--even though, looking back I can see that there were some clues to who the bad guy was, I still didn't suspect until we found out for sure. I loved that Ms. Giordano had Maggie use cutting edge technology to find out who was behind it all, too--very timely! Since this is the first in this spin-off series, you could absolutely start your Steel Ridge binge-read here. Many (most? maybe even all? I lost track) of the original series characters at least get a mention here, and several play a role in the story, but you don't have to have read their books to enjoy this one. A word of warning, though--chances are that seeing them all interact here (I. Love. This. Family!) will increase your TBR dramatically. Not that this is a problem...and hey, it will give you something to do until the next series book comes out :) Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
