** Book Review ** GOING HARD by Kelsey Browning


4 1/2 STARS!

We previously met the Steele family in the prequel STEELE RIDGE: THE BEGINNING.  With this first full-length novel in the new series, Kelsey Browning brings us Griffin Steele’s story which is filled with happenings around town, family drama, lots of intrigue, and a generous dose of steamy romance!  Great characters make for a fun, attention grabbing book!

Grif enjoys living the high life out in LA as a high end sports agent.  He’s making a quick dash home to North Carolina to help his brother Jonah with a project for their hometown, but finds out that the plan is to snooker him into helping him on a longer term basis.

While in town, he runs into Carlie Beth Parrish who he had one night of passion with just before he headed to Los Angeles all those years ago.  He wouldn’t mind picking up where they left off, but she’s a bit stand-offish.  He soon realizes it has to do with a little secret she failed to let him in on … namely a 14 year old daughter!

When it becomes evident that a stalker is targeting Carlie Beth, Grif steps in to keep her and their daughter safe.  Will he decide he’s found the place he belongs or will he soon be hightailing it back to California?
