ABOUT THE BOOK
He’s set on pleasure, but she’s all business. Sizzling chemistry and a surprising connection set this sexy love story in motion. But is it enough to last forever?
Archer Steele is one of the leading vintners on the East Coast. He’s arrogant, aggressive, and has never been interested in settling down, which is what makes his hookups with his sister’s beautiful blond best friend, hair and makeup artist Indi Oliver, the perfect escape. But Indi’s toying with moving to the island, and when she ends their no-strings trysts to focus on her business, Archer isn’t ready to let her go…
Book 3 of The Steeles at Silver Island is an emotional and sexy romance with Ms. Foster’s signature broody bad boy and his strong sassy vixen who butt heads and bump uglies as they fall head over heels in love.
Archer Steele is a hot, arrogant alpha male with a world full of guilt on his shoulders. With a playboy reputation and no time for relationships, Archer meets his match with the bold and beautiful Indi Oliver. At first, it was just steamy hookups whenever they had time, but now Indi’s moving to Silver Island and with misgivings, he’s spending time with her even more. Archer’s guilt goes deep and he feels undeserving of an amazing woman like Indi while holding onto his tumultuous past.
Indi Oliver is stoked to open her own skincare boutique on Silver Island. She’s worked hard to get here and what better place to live her dream than the place she always loved while visiting the Steele family with her friend Leni. Indi is leaving New York and her controlling parents behind and falling for the one man who prefers no-strings relationships. One last time with this sexy man isn’t working so friends-with-benefits it is… until it becomes more.
I was hooked from the very first chapter. The chemistry between Archer and Indi is undeniable and the sex scenes are incredibly hot. It’s exciting to see the cocky alpha male slowly come undone as he realizes what an incredibly brilliant and funny woman Indi is. She doesn’t judge and she lets him be himself. And most importantly, she’s proud to be with him. Archie is a generous man and a protector of those he loves. He showed Indi so many times how he felt about her including standing up to her controlling parents and helping her with her business venture. However, he is so guilt-ridden over the anger he had over his best friend’s death many years ago. Even though he has made peace with his twin brother over the incident, he still feels responsible for Kayla’s death and hold’s that shit tight to his chest. In addition, Archie feels guilty for not being there for his kid sister Jules when she was sick as a child. With Indi’s support and patience, Archie unloads his anguish on her and she gives the best advice to forgive himself and talk to his family about his feelings. Feelings are not easy for him, but when he lets it go, it’s heartbreaking and lovely to see as his wonderful family shows him their unconditional love and support.
There are so many incredible supporting characters from the extraordinary Steele family to Indi’s brother and sister who came through for her. The many nieces and nephews are adorable. Grandma Lenore is hilarious. And I seriously want to meet them all.
This spectacular romance will make you laugh, cry, and cheer for “a match made in the most stubborn parts of heaven”. It can be read as a standalone, but you’ll love this family so much, you’ll want to start at the beginning. For more romance by Ms. Foster, please see my review for Running on Diesel.
Thank you to Ms. Foster for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
