This is the second book in the BLACK SHADOWS duet, Cass and Calder's story. You must read GOLD SHIMMER before reading STEEL RUSH.

Cass has spent years trying to forget her past. But the thing about pasts…they always come back around, sometimes in the most unexpected ways. When Celeste goes missing, Cass discovers how intricately entangled her past and present are with Celeste's, making it impossible to walk away.

In an effort to ignore his own painful history, Calder challenges a corrupt underground MMA organization, but his mission gets sidelined when Cass’s life becomes endangered.

The passion simmering between Calder and Cass tempts them to share their darkest secrets, but can their trust in each other help them unravel the mystery surrounding Celeste? Can they eliminate the threat to Cass before the past overshadows the present and destroys their intense connection?

Note: STEEL RUSH is meant for readers 18+ due to mature content. This is the second book in the BLACK SHADOWS duet, Cass and Calder’s love story. The first book, GOLD SHIMMER, must be read before STEEL RUSH. The BLACK SHADOWS duet (books 4 and 5) can be read as a standalone story or as part of the IN THE SHADOWS series

My Review

“Let the concert begin, Maestro.”

Steel Rush by P. T. Michelle is book 5 of the In the Shadows series and book 2 in the Black Shadows duet. It is an erotic romance and MMA novel.  It is recommended that it be read in conjunction with Gold Shimmer, book one of the Black Shadows duet.

“When I’m with you, that part of my past fades into the background. Help me forget it ever happened. Show me that I’m capable of being as uninhibited as I want to be.”

We begin Steel Rush as the questions about Celeste continue to mount. We are also given more insight into the night that Cass and Beth were together at the MMA match. There are so many factors and unknowns that remain yet to be unlocked, and we are hopeful to find the keys that will unlock not only these mysteries, but also Cass and Calder’s pasts and futures.

“When I dance with you our bodies move in sync naturally. Chest, hips, thighs. This is sex with clothes on, Cass.”

Written in dual points of view, Steel Rush was a read that I could sink my teeth into and never let go. Wow! I loved this book! Cass and Calder displayed some heat and passion in Gold Shimmer that instantly connected me with them. But, in Steel Rush, they had moments I will never forget. The way Calder spoke and treated Cass overflowed with sex appeal and lasting entrapment of the best kind. Being handed so many puzzles and unknowns gave a “what’s going to happen next” feel that made me soak up each page. The addition of other character conflicts, as it blended with the story of Cass and Calder, served as the lighter fluid for a fire that was already likely to burn out of control. I cannot get enough of this series, and am so excited to read more in the near future.

“All I care about is you. The rest is just noise.”
