Review of Riding Steele: Collide by Opal Carew
Riding Steele #3: Collide by Opal Carew
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The end of Untamed left us wondering whether or not Laurie found safety when she happened upon a police officer during her bid to escape Steele and the other bikers. As luck would have it, the officer she is rescued by is her brother’s friend Killer, but she doesn’t learn that until he returns her to Steele. Understandably Laurie is both relieved and distraught because as much as she doesn’t want to admit it to herself, Steele makes her feel safe … among other things.
Collide proves to be one doozy of a rollercoaster ride of emotions for Laurie as she deals with her failed escape attempt, her brother’s concerns and half-hatched kidnapping plan, an increased fear of Dominic once she hears what Officer Grainger (aka Killer) dug up on him, and her unresolved feelings for Steele – she wants him and she trusts him, but she’s not sure she can trust her own instincts anymore. Although Laurie and Steele still have yet to consummate their lust, Ms. Carew does treat us to a mouthwateringly erotic foreplay scene that also helps Laurie replace some of the bad memories she has regarding Dominic’s treatment of her. I really liked how Laurie was able to recognize her knee-jerk reactions were to the scene and not Steele and that she took steps to apologize to him for her reaction and to prove that she did indeed trust him. And with the way Collide ended, I am so freaking glad I have Wanted all queued up on my Kindle to read next.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
