Publisher's Summary

The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.

Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.

Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the U.S. government can’t....

Steele, a KGI team leader, is an enigma not even his teammates understand. His emotions are tightly locked down and nothing can break that icy exterior. Nothing except Maren Scofield, a doctor on a mission, a woman who has gotten under Steele’s skin and threatens to crack that unflappable cool he’s legendary for.

Steele is determined not to allow Maren past his carefully guarded defenses. But when she’s in danger, there’s no way he’ll allow anyone else to protect her.

Maren’s hiding something. He’s sure of it. But he isn’t prepared for the shocking discovery her secrets reveal. Or how they will forever alter the course of his destiny. He has a decision to make. Hold tight and shut her out. Or take a chance on something more powerful than he’s ever faced: Love.

    "Holy bad narrator Batman!!!!!!!"

    Love this series. Hate the new narrator. Steele sounds like Ridiculous and I keep laughing at everything he says. I keep picturing Christian Bale and those YouTube videos of the dad that keeps yelling at his wife in the Batman voice. It's awful and takes away from the overall experience; however, the story is great. Love Maya Banks!

    Story
    "Why Another Narrator?"

    I don't understand why Maya has so many different narrators for this book. I heard Hancock's book first and loved the narrator's depictions of Steele, Rio, and Hancock. After that, I bought Rio and Steele's books (my favorite in the series after Hancock). I was in shock over the voice in Rio's story. He did the male characters well, especially Rio's Portugese, but his Grace was strange. Then I move to Forged in Steele and this guys voice is incredibly thin. His Steele voice sounded like a teenager trying to sound tough. The most disappointing was his Rio. Rio went from a Brazilian man to a Mexican one. Sigh...I'm go to stay with authors who have the same narrator for all their books.

    "Great story, bad narrator."

    Adam Paul is a very poor choice for this series. he's so bland and boring, and he makes it sound like the story is being told from the perspective of an emotionless robot. that aside, really great story. Loved it from start to finish.

    Story
    "the perfect couple"
    What did you love best about Forged in Steele?

    I am usually not a fan of the explicit sexual content But the author kept so much humor and closeness between hero and heroin. I never felt like an intruder .Loved


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Steele of course.


    What does Adam Paul bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr. Paul Steele' s voice fit his persona to perfection. Reminds me of Aldo Ray .(Ray an actor from the fifties.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes and have listened several times since.


    Any additional comments?

    Love all of the KGI books. These are Maya Banks very best stories. Love the whole of the entire cast of characters.

    Story
    "No Longer A Tin Man"

    Steele was always a little intimidating to me in the other KGI books, but I knew when he was felled by the mighty emotion of love it would be good. I wasn't wrong. Now I wondered just how emotionally expressive he would be since he was, in every other story, cold as ice. It wasn't too little and it wasn't too much. He got his point across in a very clear and warm way and I enjoyed seeing the escalation of emotion as he and Dr. Maren Scofield spent more and more time together. He didn't go down without a fight, but then I wouldn't have expected any less from this man of Steele.

    Story
    "Will she be able to count on Steele to protect her"

    5 star

    The story has laughs, abuse, kidnapping, suspense, and heartbreak.

    If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first
    The Darkest Hour (KGI, #1)
    No Place to Run (KGI #2)
    Hidden Away (KGI #3)
    Whispers in the Dark (KGI #4)
    Echoes at Dawn (KGI #5)
    Softly at Sunrise (KGI #5.5)
    Shades of Gray (KGI #6)

    This is Maren and Steele’s story. Steele is the iceman. Or so his team thinks. When he and a few of his men need medical attention he goes to Maren. He wants her and tries to stay away from her. He is no good for her. But after one night he just can’t stay away. After coming back to her in his downtime he is called away. Maren has a secret but is not completely sure she is expecting so she takes a test and decides that she will tell Steele when she gets the results. Only problem is when she gets the results she get kidnapped the same day. Now in the hands of a mad man who believes that he wants her she has to worry about him making the moves on her while she takes care of his medical needs. Steele has been searching for Maren for months. When one phone call brings her back to him he knows that the danger is not over. He moves her in and takes care of her but what happens when the danger comes for her. Will she be able to count on Steele to protect her or will he not want her or the baby?

    I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

    I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story in this series.

    Story
    "Great story, but reader's voice drove me nuts!"

    I loved the story, but the voice he used for Steele was so gravelly and raspy that I found it almost painful to listen to. I felt like I needed to cough or clear my own voice whenever Steele spoke. Other than that he did a great job!
