As secrets are revealed, will Talon be able to let Jade fully in? Or will he constantly have that steel wall up?

So if you are ready to get possessed by Helen Hardt’s poetic writing then I would highly recommend you to read this book and series.

    It's times like these that I wish I could give a book negative stars. The first two books in the series were horrible and definitely deserved the lowest rating available, but this book is even worse than them. And I apparently AM going to be suckered into reading books four through six, because I didn't want to hurt a friend's feelings, and I really, really need more booze for this shit. It's clear that this "series" was intended to start out as a trilogy featuring Jade and Talon's "love story," It's times like these that I wish I could give a book negative stars.

And I apparently AM going to be suckered into reading books four through six, because I didn't want to hurt a friend's feelings, and I really, really need more booze for this shit. It's clear that this "series" was intended to start out as a trilogy featuring Jade and Talon's "love story," but then it became popular for COMPLETELY INEXPLICABLE REASONS THAT I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND TO MY DYING DAY, and so the author is milking out another three books (at least), this time featuring Melanie and Jonah. Oh joy. I just can't wait. As such, the plot about the mystery behind Talon's kidnapping as a child, which really should be wrapped up in this book, plods along with no real end in sight. It's obvious that the author is trying to milk it, and since it continues, I am wondering if the author believes that whatever "romance" she can cook up between Jonah and Melanie just isn't hot enough to carry three more books, so she has to stretch along the mystery to keep people interested. And since this is the "Steel Brothers Saga," I am sure that Ryan will have three books too - and hell, why not throw in Marj since she's also a Steel and turn it into the "Steel Family Saga?" Sigh. This book falls prey to the "just talk to one another, god damn it, and so many misunderstandings will be solved" trope that I fucking hate to read in romance, or, in general, ever. Talon and Jade don't ever really TALK to one another. Whenever they are together, they have "hot" (I disagree with this characterization vehemently - more on that later in this rant) sex. They do, finally, manage to have one serious conversation in this book ((view spoiler)[when Talon tells her about his captivity and rape (hide spoiler)] ), but that is it. How are they so madly in love with one another that they don't even really KNOW one another? Their "tru wuv" romance feels so much more like a rebound relationship for Jade after being left at the altar. I am just not buying it at all. Even though Talon is not talking about his past with Jade (and I accept that part, at least - he has to tell her, but in his own time and when he's comfortable doing so), he gets pissed off at her when she doesn't tell him information that is pertinent to tracking down the monsters of his past. But the thing is, since he doesn't tell her anything about the past, she doesn't KNOW that it is important to him. That doesn't stop Talon from getting so pissed off at Jade that he strikes her (but it's on the butt, and she ends up liking it, so it's okay, right? *eye roll*) and blaming her for keeping things from him. SHE IS NOT PSYCHIC, ASSHOLE. How in the world is she supposed to know that she has information about his past if she isn't even aware of his past? Of course, the reader knows all of this, which primes the reader to side with Talon, but I'm giving a hard NO to that. Jade DOES NOT KNOW. There is no way that she COULD know. Talon is a jackass for expecting her to know things that he's never told her. But Talon's asshole behavior isn't just contained to that episode. He's a dick to Jade throughout most of the series, true, but he gets even more dickish in this book. I know, I know, I didn't think it was possible either - but it is. He tells her, quite out of the blue, that he wants her to be submissive to him all of the time. He wants to order her around, forbid her to do things, etc, and he wants her to be okay with that. Whoa what NO. Then, when she tells him (rather weakly) that she has her own life and she is NOT okay with this, he throws into her face that she is submissive to him in the bedroom, so he doesn't see the problem here, and pretty much lays blame at her feet for being submissive in the bedroom but not willing to carry it over into every aspect of her life and be his effective love slave. HOW DOES ANYONE FIND THIS BOOK TO BE ROMANTIC? Seriously, I have no fucking idea. Talon is a classic "child who was abused now becoming the abuser" in the making, and NO ONE seems to see this! Now, before anyone argues with me, yes, I know there are D/s couples who enjoy this kind of lifestyle, and as long as its consenting adults, I don't give a shit what goes on with their lives - but it's clearly obvious that Jade is NOT okay with any of this in the book. She fights Talon's domineering tooth and nail at times, and at other times she does acquiesce to keep the peace - CLASSIC behavior of an abusive relationship. NOT SEXY. NOT HEALTHY. NOT GOOD. (view spoiler)[And when Talon finally does tell Jade what happened to him, when she doesn't look at him as less than, he's incredulous. She asks him if he'd look at her differently if it had been she who had been kidnapped and raped. He says no, but it's different for a boy. On the one hand, I can acknowledge that it is different for a boy. In our culture, which is quite misogynistic and homophobic even if people like to pretend it isn't, there's additional layers and circumstances for a boy who has been raped - there's the challenge to his masculinity, of having been penetrated so he must be "gay," etc. As if being gay is a bad thing. And I recall reading, several years ago, a statement from someone (and I can't remember who, sorry) saying that the real reason there is so much homophobia geared towards gay men (but less toward gay women) is that men do not want to be treated like how they treat women, and it's actually fueled by misogyny. And I see that. But on the other hand, I am infuriated, because it lessens a woman victim's assault, because it's "not as bad" as when it happens to a man. You know, rape is rape and it's bad regardless. It's a violation of trust, your body, your way of viewing the world, your power, your ability to choose, and a whole bunch of other shit. And I fucking hate the implied sentiment that it's less traumatizing for a woman because she's made to be fucked by a man, but men aren't made to be fucked at all. (hide spoiler)] Also, apparently therapy is ~*~magic~*~ and solves issues that have been festering for decades in just a couple of sessions! Talon has a "major breakthrough" in just one full therapy session. Gee, I didn't know that it was such a magic cure all! I thought therapy could be a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, with little to no progress visualized for months. So glad that is not the case and apparently I did it all wrong as a teenager! And to finish off my rant, the sex was just bad. The sex was always bad, granted, but now the author is clearly just phoning it in at this point. Sex is all that Talon and Jade have going for one another, and the descriptions have devolved into an even lower point. I don't have the energy to dissect how bad the sex scenes are, because I have spent my rage on more weightier, rage-inducing topics, but...once again, I must ask, how does anyone find anything in this book attractive or sexy? God damn it, I do not want to read the next books in this series. I need to find a way to tell my friend that the book series just isn't for me, haha. I can't see how it is for anyone, to be honest. Bad writing, bad characters, bad relationships, and all around bad books. No thanks.

Book #1 is CRAVING. Book #2 is OBSESION. You should also be warned that this series deals with some very difficult issues (which are descriptive) and may be a hard limit for some. WOAH. Helen Hardt has truly blown me away with this series. It is dark, emotional, intense, horrifying, and utterly beautiful all mixed together. With the first two book we are left with many unanswered question and the majority of those ARE answered in this one. However, the story is not finished and there are still many things left to be answered and uncovered. To say this one ends in a cliffhanger would be deceiving because it doesn’t really. I mean, peace is made and Talon is able to move on from his terrible past. BUT it does end in a way that tells us that the story isn’t necessarily finished. Some people still need to brought to justice and secrets will still need to be uncovered about the family and their past. So readers should be warned… You may get your happily ever after but you sure as hell don’t get the end of it all… Not by a long shot! Now I can’t wait for MELT which will be available in December of this year. >> >> SPOLERS AHEAD IF YOU HAVENT READ THIS SERIES << For everyone that has read the two previous book in the series, you know that Talon was kidnapped and abused when he was younger. When we finish with book 2 we kind of figure out who is behind the kidnapping and such but are left hanging. Well, in this book we find out WHO TWO of the men are but we are missing the last one. Who could he be??? Once again, Helen leaves us hanging because we get a glimpse of the third masked man in this one which shows us that this story is not over by a long shot! But even still, the story is told in a delicate and beautiful way and the love story that emerges for Talon and Jade is absolutely magnificent. To say these two bring about the emotions is an understatement. I had so many feels that I didn’t know where I was part of the story. YIKES! That’s how you know we have a great author on our hands. Anyway, ultimately Talon and Jade go get their HEA in this one because Talon is finally able to be honest with her about his past. The growth of this character is truly phenomenal and I loved ho Jade was able to open up this severely damaged man. But, as I said before the story is not over and not everything is resolved yet. I have high hopes that the next book will finish answering everything that has been left unsaid and I honestly cannot wait to dive into it. Is it December yet??? Final thoughts … This is a truly great series. While it is certainly dark and sad and is likely to upset many readers due to the nature of what happened to Talon when he was a child, the overall story of love and redemption overpowers everything else. Helen Hardt did an amazing job bringing these characters to light and I truly felt like they were friends of mine in some way. If you have yet to read the series, you really should. Readers (and lovers of romance) will get a dark and damaged man who is able to overcome his pain and suffering through love- this is what makes it all so damn beautiful. So read it!

    Disappointed this wasn't really a finale to the series. I knew as I was getting closer and closer to the end that there was no way it was going to be resolved in his book. I don't like that I was lead to believe it was a three book series. I would have definitely read more books about the brothers and sister in the future (hopefully stand alones), but I would have been much happier if Talon's story had been better completed in this book.

    I skim read this book... three or four sentences per page. DNF. I tried to read it because I have a problem reading two books of a trilogy and not finishing the third. I try not to write bad reviews so here it goes.... Don't read this book if you enjoy well written stories and solid plot structures. I skim read this book... three or four sentences per page. DNF.

Will Talon ever be able to reveal his deepest, darkest secrets to Jade? Will Jade still love him when she finds out? Can a man as broken as Talon ever be truly happy? Read and see! This is a hard review to write because I don't want to give anything away. But, wow this book has so many twist and turns it left my head spinning! Even though some secrets are revealed there are so many more waiting to be uncovered. Some parts of the story are hard to read, of course, but those scenes are so well written they didn't take away anything from the story for me. I can't say I enjoyed reading those parts, but I feel they are vital to the story. The love scenes are beautifully written and so scorching hot I'm fanning my face just thinking about them. Aye Carumba! Even though this is kinda the end of Jade and Talon's part of the story, the story is far from over. I have so many questions, I can't wait for the next book in this series!

    Dead. I'm dead from the strongest book hangover ever. Helen exceeded every expectation I had for this book. It was heart pounding, heartbreaking, intense, full throttle genius. This book was EVERYTHING!!! I thought my heart would stop..It felt that good to see Talon finally make breakthroughs in his life. There really are no words accurate enough to describe how amazingly incredibly beautiful this book was. This was a definite 6 star read. Couldn't recommend it enough. Dead.

    Loved the first two This book was a total bore. I really hate when authors drag a series out but the story could have been summed up in 1 or 2 books. Totally not worth $6.99.

    I've been having such a hard time with this series. I began listening to it on audiobook because I like reading mystery and I like reading romance so to mix them together? Perfect! Then to be able to listen to it, even better! However I'm done with the series. I thought for sure the mystery would wrap up and feel somewhat satisfying but nope. It seems like the mystery involving the family is just filler for the BDSM scenes, which gradually become more overly descriptive as the series goes on.

It seems like the mystery involving the family is just filler for the BDSM scenes, which gradually become more overly descriptive as the series goes on. I'm not a prude, I can handle a sex scene but the descriptions throughout the series were too much. I was disgusted a lot of the time and found myself skipping over it in the third book when the descriptions really got bad. Especially towards the end in a scene where I feel it went too far. Clamps, plugs, beads... you know the one I'm talking about! Let's not sugar coat how Talon was reenacting a lot of his abuse in the bedroom. Which I found disturbing, not hot. Maybe I'm getting tired of authors passing off mental and sexual abuse as "romance", because that's what was happening with Jade and Talon's relationship. It was not healthy. Both of them, especially Talon, have deep rooted issues. Can I conclude that it's great Talon found someone who wouldn't give up on him and was willing to hold his baggage with him? Sure. But as I said before, the mystery and actually story for this series seemed like filler for the sex scenes so the plot and build-up of their romance felt lacking. There wasn't enough going on outside of the bedroom for me to believe they loved each other. Were they hot for each other? Yep. Could I see the love between them? Nope. Just lust. Overall I won't be continuing on with the series. Not if it's going to have more of those overly descriptive sex scenes. If the author had put half as much effort into the actual story than into the sex scenes, I think this series could have been great.

    I really don’t know how I felt about this book. When I went into it I thought that it was going to be the final book for Talon and Jade but the way this book ended we are still on the Talon train even though the next book will Jonah’s story. Honestly, I feel like they have really dragged out Talon’s story over these three books. So I’m a little disappointed that it’s STILL not finished. We finally see Talon get on the path to start to heal and bare everything to Jade. Moving on to what I didn’t lik I really don’t know how I felt about this book.

I get that Talon was going through things and trying to work out everything in his life, but it irritated me that he would get mad at Jade when she didn’t tell him about Larry and Nico. She didn’t think those things were important because she didn’t know. He asked her to be patient with him but he was unruly at times. I also didn’t like how Jade would act sometimes. She was strong and I loved the way she didn’t back down when Talon would try to forbid her to do things. However, it irritated me when she would get all happy because of the little things he did. See quote below. “I didn’t know what was bothering Talon, but the fact that he said he was sorry that he woke me meant the world to me.” Like Seriously?! She praised him for something that he should’ve been doing in the first place. Irritation aside, It was okay of a read and the chemistry with Jade and Talon was hot. Will I be moving on in the serious. I highly doubted.

    Talon and Jade's story comes to a conclusion in this installment of the Steel Brothers - kind of. Helen Hardt excels at plotting and pacing, so now I find myself in the position of having to continue the series with Jonah's book. Sometimes you just have to know what happens next. Well done, Ms. Hardt - you've got me hooked! The first part of this one may have dragged a bit with Talon refusing to confide in Jade, but everything really picks up in the second half.

And of course the signature, slightly dark sex scenes remind you that this is actually a romance novel. So while some of the dialogue is just as cheesy as it was in the previous books, it's worth sitting through to experience the book as a whole.

    Didn’t love this one as much as the first two. Still a decent story but I think I expected a little bit more or at least a solid ending. But nope, I need to read the next one so I can follow the breadcrumbs to learn more... oh well I guess it’s on to book 4. I am looking forward to reading a different brothers story.

    I'm used to the poor quality of writing in this genre and usually you have to wade through many books before you can find the ones that are well-written, but this series just was too poorly done. The main issues I had centered around how Jade and Talon literally never talk. When they go on a date they enjoy "quiet silence", when they drive together they are "alone with their thoughts", and when they do actually talk its always about how Jade is not helping Talon or could never understand his pas I'm used to the poor quality of writing in this genre and usually you have to wade through many books before you can find the ones that are well-written, but this series just was too poorly done.

When they go on a date they enjoy "quiet silence", when they drive together they are "alone with their thoughts", and when they do actually talk its always about how Jade is not helping Talon or could never understand his past even though HE REFUSES TO EVER TALK ABOUT IT. Jade is NOT psychic and would have absolutely no way of knowing that her boss's missing toe had ANYTHING to do with Talon's past or that the phoenix tattoo would be a trigger for him. Instead of saying, "Hey Jade that tattoo/toe/whatever is a trigger from my past and really upsets me" Talon chooses to, instead, yell at Jade and hit (or I guess spank) her for being so inconsiderate. Look, if you never talk or communicate this is going to lead to misunderstandings and ultimately, anger. Which it did. Talon took out his anger on Jade, in I guess a sexual way but not one she seemed to care for, all because they couldn't even carry a simple conversation. Talon and Jade were obviously meant to be a one night stand and then have neither one of them ever look back. Instead the author tried to turn their dysfunction into a romantic relationship, which is impossible when your main characters never talk. I mean their marriage would be a nightmare. Ex: "Who does the grocery shopping? Who asks how your day was? Who do you talk to about something that is bothering you?" NOT Talon.

I think the way she handled things with her mother was a bit petty, but I feel like she was entitled to do so, especially since her mother is ignorant in all ways. Jade's mother is an airhead. Jade is amazing and I love how she was just so submissive with Talon in the bed, but a strong equal outside of the bedroom. Amazing woman. Talon is bae!!! I freaking love him! He has gone through so much, but in this book he broke down those walls, shared his pasts with his family and told Jade things he never thought he could. Talon learned that he is capable of love and worthy of receiving. Talon learned a lot about himself and his real strength. I'm happy he was able to get near the light of his dark tunnel. The romance was outstanding from the first book to this third book. Talon has learned to love and be loved. Jade has broken down his walls and brought light to his life. Talon has ignited a true fire in Jade. I am ready for them to have a few babies and get married in any order. Let's not forget to mention the sex -- they definitely stepped it up a few notches in this book. Larry and Nico are absolutely the most disgusting men ever for what they did. That epilogue revealing who the third man freaking blew my mind. I know Melt will focus on the eldest Steel brother, Jonah, but the whole situation being revealed with the rose and the third man has me excited for more drama to be revealed. I need to know if Colin is dead or not. I need to know where Nico ran off. I want to know why the hell Larry and this family friend (the third guy) to the abduction thought it was okay to do what they did. Will Talon get justice for what happen? Will Bailey come to her sense and really learn to love her daughter? Amazing series!!!! I am ready for Melt and the rest of this saga! I'm loving the Steel family.

    Possession is the third book in The Steel Brothers Saga. Possession picks up immediately after Obsession and continues with Talon’s journey from his childhood abuse to his present-day struggle to learn to deal with what happened and live a productive life. He continues to work with Dr. Melanie Carmichael to address the psychological issues at the same time he is working with his brothers, Jonah and Ryan to solve the mystery of the men who kidnapped and abused him. Possession took Possession is the third book in The Steel Brothers Saga. Possession picks up immediately after Obsession and continues with Talon’s journey from his childhood abuse to his present-day struggle to learn to deal with what happened and live a productive life. He continues to work with Dr. Melanie Carmichael to address the psychological issues at the same time he is working with his brothers, Jonah and Ryan to solve the mystery of the men who kidnapped and abused him. Possession took me on an emotional journey with Talon. The real horror of his ordeal is confirmed. The pain, the “why me”, his inability to be happy as an adult are addressed. What I like about the way Helen Hardt tells this story is that she builds the suspense and tension of Talon trying to work out his past; at the same time, she is developing a relationship with Talon and Jade that has its ups and downs. The chemistry between Talon and Jade burns up the pages. It is realistic in that as Talon admits what happened he sometimes lashes out at Jade. She is handy, understanding and determined to do her part in helping him. There are times that Talon gets angry and lashes out, but Jade is perfectly suited to him that she stays strong. She supports him by letting him alone when he needs it and standing by his side when he needs that too. In addition to Talon’s story, we learn more about Jade and her family. Jade’s father is such a sweet man. He put her first even though he still loves Jade’s mother who deserted them. Her mother is in a relationship with a man who appears a little shady. She claims she wants a relationship with Jade, but I don’t trust her. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. Ms. Hardt continues to thrill the readers with twists and turns that are often unexpected and unique. There is a lot of family drama on all sides. I enjoy trying to put the puzzle pieces together as the players all make an appearance--sometimes I'm right, and sometimes I am way off base. The dual points of view clearly paint the struggle of Talon and Jade for the reader. Possession concludes Talon’s story to a point. There is still a lot that isn’t known that will be revealed in the future. The past impacts all three brothers to various degrees. There are so many questions about the secretive life that existed and may still exist that needs come out for the Steels to move forward as a family. It will be interesting to see why Jonah and Ryan haven’t settled down yet. The next book, Melt , begins Jonah’s story while answering questions from the first trilogy. I can’t wait to see what twists and turns are ahead for him. Possession is not a standalone book as the first two books have important information needed before beginning this one. Every book ends on a cliffhanger but that doesn't matter at this point since the series will conclude in February. Start reading as soon as you can.

    This is a series that may be very triggering to readers. There will be a complete trigger list at the end of this review. Talon gets some closure on his ordeal thanks to therapy and lots of support around him. But is he lucky enough to get the girl of his dreams in the process? This book handles a lot of the triggers well, while also triggering others, so truly be careful if you are sensitive. Also, the smut is a bit outdated in how it is written in my opinion.

    Amazing This series is addicting. This book was especially difficult as Talon was finally working through everything that happened. Jade is a pretty amazing chick- so understanding and supportive, and strong. All the characters are so complex and well written. Of course a bit more of the puzzle was revealed but at the same time, we are left with more questions. On to the next book, no stopping me now, I need answers!

    Possession By: Helen Hardt Narrated by: Sebastian York, Neva Navarre Conclusion of a trilogy Overall 5 out of 5 stars Performance 5 out of 5 stars Story 5 out of 5 stars Reviewed: 06-01-20 I’m completely in love with this family. Sebastian York is amongst my favorite narrators and Neva Navarre is snuggling with them. Don’t I have any comments? Sure 😃. The female lead is a bit one dimensional, almost too perfect.

    Really easy read, can’t put down I like the storyline, is a little similar to 50 shades of Grey, but with much detail. The book is a little predictive with the storylines, but I like the character development. I love a good cliff hanger to keep going. I am glad that this book have 18 of them so I will be entertained for a good couple of weeks during this pandemic. If you don’t like cheesy romance, with a little spicy parts don’t read the book because is what you will find here.

    Audible. Did you know this is my first HH series? I now understand the addictiveness of her stories. Well #%^}! I have so many questions. So many things I want to know. Even though Talon & Jade’s story is primarily over, I still want more. More answers. More wicked hot sex. More of Marj and Jade’s friendship.
