What just happened? I'm left speechless and just exhausted! I'm a blogger of romance and smut books so I assumed this was within my genre and I'll confess I didn't read the blurb before I started the book like I usually do and I'm glad I didn't because I probably wouldn't have read it. BUT I'M SOOOOOO GLAD I DID! It was a nice break from my Romance HEA's.
Karen Barnes is my Hero. I can't even touch on what she went through in this book. As a sufferer of PTSD she battles and battles to survive on every page. I ugly cried and cheered. Was sad and happy. Was relieved and shocked! Had anxiety and peace....
I felt every emotion imaginable in this book. As a survivor myself I really wanted peace for Karen. But will she find it? With the life of her most prized horse at stake, Karen learns of government espionage, family secrets and betrayal. Can't remember the last time a book has grabbed ahold of me like this one.
I don't even feel like I can leave a good enough review to be honest. It was just that damned breathtaking.....
When I said I was speechless....I meant it!
The writing is exceptional.
The story is amazing.
I just can't say it enough...
WOW!!! JUST WOW!!!
T.J. Loveless, I have one word for you....
BRILLIANT. [June 2014]

Warning: Reading Fractured Steel may send reader on an emotional roller coaster. Filled with dark thoughts, extreme events, and the ability of humans to survive the worst life has to offer. Fractured Steel is filled with realistic consequences of decisions gone wrong, finding friendship in the face of adversity, and trying to live again.
Karen Barnes’s life is simple, just the way she likes it, surrounded by horses and the mountains of Laramie, Wyoming. She is well aware the longing for adventure can lead to blood and death, a hard lesson taught during her one, and only, tour in Iraq almost a decade ago.
A stranger approaches Karen about boarding a famous horse foaled in her stables, making her instincts go on high alert. She knows for a fact the stallion’s owner would never sell Five Alarm, the US Reining champion worth a hefty ten million dollars. In ten minutes the stranger confirms her worst fears, launching her into weeks of torment at the hands of her kidnappers.
Armed with a spine of steel, she escapes, but the ordeal is far from over. It was a cover up for espionage. Trusted contacts join the fray, and in the end, pay for their loyalty by dying for her safety. Others aren’t so trustworthy, and as the truth is brought to light, she is betrayed yet again.
Safety and freedom come with their own emotional shackles. She had the courage to fight the battle, but can she live with the aftermath of the carnage, or survive the fractures to her mind?
