Yes, that was me yelling “WTF happens if Sarah, the expresso goddess calls in sick, or quits??

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review Maddie’s been trying to get over being dumped by her longtime boyfriend, and figures it’s past time to ‘get back in the saddle again’. Return to Book Page.

Dangerous Grounds (Seattle Steam, #1) by Shelli Stevens

Both people thought it was just a fling when it started, but quickly realized they didn’t want it to end. The fact that he’s her older brother Eric’s best friend dangeeous always thought of her as a little sister could make it tricky, but Maddie figures he’s worth it. To each their own I guess. He even had a moving backstory that comes to light in the second half of the book.

dangerohs Her coffee is unpalatable and everyone sp To be honest, I have no idea why this book syevens reviewed so highly, as it is easily the worst romance novel I have read this year. After a troubling childhood and adolescence Gabe realizes what’s important. Feb 15, Stephie rated it it was ok Shelves: With no concerns about this poor sod, or what this might do to his relationship with xhelli brother, his best friend! I think near the end was a bit over-the-top in terms of her attitude towards him, but it ended up an HEA.


A hot guy with a heart always does it for me. Not that there is anything necesarily wrong with that, but combined with her rich entitled attitude it makes it seem like she is the sort of girl who wants an Oompa Loompa and wants one NOW!!!!

Unfortunately, in this story, Madison is definitely not on the top of my list. The Seattle Steam series. He’s dedicated himself to his family and friends. Gabe, police officer and best friend to Maddie’s brother, Eric, has known Maddie since she was a kid.

The ending got a little hokey for me and that’s all I’ll about that. She was so selfish and spoiled, I hated how she treated Gabe. Gabe was smitten right away-although he didn’t want to admit it. The dream had been too real. The hero does such a fast from we cannot have sex because you are my besties baby dangeroua, to lets get it on like donkey kong. Gabe has no desire to cross the line where his friends sister is concerned, but when she becomes the only witness to actually see the violent Espresso Bandit he steps in to protect her.

I think she was a caring person, if a bit or a lot self centered. Just a minor annoyance, and certainly nothing to ruin this mostly very satisfying read. We get I love you’s while they are having sex in a broom closet at her brothers wedding, the end. Sounded fine to me! A lot is made of the fact that he is a blue collar cop, and Maddie is a rich princessy type girl.

She thinks she needs a ‘rebound romance’, a guy who she can just use for sex and not have to worry about a ‘relationship’.

Read a much better example of what this author can do. I found her bold attempts to seduce Gabe, and the way he tried to resist her, almost comical.

Dangerous Grounds (Seattle Steam, book 1) by Shelli Stevens

Well, things between Maddie and Gabe soon come to a head, when Maddie is robbed and nearly killed by Seattle’s notorious Espresso Bandit. The sex shelki were fun, but the rest of the book was just strange an unpleasant as Maddie’s burned coffee.


MadisonGabe Renault. In the beginning, it danegrous more a stevsns book than erotica, but things did pick up to earn it the bump up to erotica. This pains me to say, but this was a DNF for me. I kept waiting for the author to reveal Maddie realizing what it meant, but it never happened. I love a strong confident female character that’s not afraid to go after what she wants.

Other books in the series.

But things arent going exactly as planned. Romantic dinners and walks on the beach-everything is like griunds dream. I thought the author did an excellent job growing her character. He’s especially reluctant when he becomes co Rarely do I come across characters in books that I dislike so much that it completely ruins the story for me but the groundss of this one Madison Phillips is one such character. I loved the fact that as Gabriel’s best friend and Maddie’s older brother, Eric didn’t pull the usual stunt about warning his best friend from his sister.

Dangerous Grounds Quotes

It took almost another hour before she slipped into a light sleep, and instead of being comforted, she found herself reliving the robbery. Although things moved dangerouus it helped that they had know each other a long time even if they hadn’t seen each other in a while. I stay with them until they get to their conclusion with me getting a wonderful read.
