Start your review of Hidden Pleasures Forged of Steele 8. Jun 01, Samantha rated it liked it Shelves: african-american-romance. Brenda Jackson brings her readers another Steele novel, this time branching off to the Phoenix Steeles. Galen Steele is a notorious womanizer, just like his father was.
Not believing that there is such thing as the right woman, he is struck when he sees one that makes him want to do more for her than bed her. Brittany Thrasher is a successful etiquette trainer who happens to think Galen is one of the rudest men she has ever met. After their run-in in New York, Brittany never thought she would see him again until she goes to Phoenix to claim the property that her biological mother has left her. Since her mother has left behind a considerable debt and the house is going on the auction block and Brittany plans to get it.
Her only problem is that she runs into Galen after he outbids her for the property, and the only way she can get it back from him, is if she agrees to stay a seven days in his house. I looked forward to Galen breaking her out of her prim and proper shell. She had to overcome so many different levels of growth due to her horrible experiences growing up in foster care. I liked how Galen realized he wanted to be that guy that wanted to show her love and caring, especially since he was a well known playboy.
There were parts where Galen was arrogant and only wanted sex. I really wanted him to wine and dine her. I wanted more romance in this story.

The premise of the story was familiar but a bit unrealistic. He was virtually a stranger to her and though she displayed some misgivings about the proposition, she easily accepted. Then to top it off, Brittany easily falls in bed with Galen, after years of having reservations about sex. I was expecting her to be more reluctant. I just found some of the points in the story a little unbelievable.
I also think that her relationship with Galen could have been fleshed out better. Wow, the love scenes were hot. Galen and Brittany were on fire and I enjoy every tasteful minute of it. Overall this is a nice addition to the Steele family series. I look forward to reading upcoming books for the rest of the Phoenix Steeles.
Aug 25, E. Joy rated it it was amazing. I have a crush on this author. Call it a woman crush, call it an author crush, call it a literary crush, call it whatever you choose, but I admire not just her writing, but her ability to connect with her readers through her writing. Not just connect with the readers, but form a relationship with them. Because of Brenda Jackson, I created the following saying: "I want readers to be able to form a connection with the characters I write about.
I want readers to be able to form a relationship with I have a crush on this author. I want readers to be able to form a relationship with me. It's because of her readers' pleas she gave in and got on social media in the first place I learned that by sitting in the back of a room at a speaking engagement of hers.
Not only did this book make me love love. It made me give romance writing a try myself. View 1 comment. This book's storyline could have been better. I didn't like Galen. I didn't like Galen did to Brittany. I felt sorry for Brittany. If you wanna read this book I suggest you borrow it from the library, it's not worth buying. A great kick-off to the Bad News Steele's Looking forward to seeing the next Phoenix Steele fall in love.

Nov 03, Jessi rated it it was ok Shelves: contemporary , part-of-a-series , , romance , ebook-from-library. Brittany Thrasher has just received a letter from her birth mother. She never knew who the woman was and now her mother is dead. The only thing left is her mother's house in Phoenix where Brittany might find more information about her own past.
Galen Steele is the oldest of the Phoenix Steeles. When the book opens, he is almost late for his cousin's wedding because he was having sex. And is super gross about describing the woman. He basically throws Brittany out of the cab she ordered so that he Brittany Thrasher has just received a letter from her birth mother. He basically throws Brittany out of the cab she ordered so that he can get to the wedding on time. And now she's in Phoenix so he's going to buy her mother's house from the auction block back taxes and blackmail Brittany into spending a week with him.
But it's okay, because he actually puts the house in her name before the sexxxing.
Except that he sort of neglects to tell her that so she feels obligated. Brenda Jackson is a pretty good writer and I don't think that she would write this book today but I ended up racing through to the end to see if she, somehow, redeems Galen.
