"Maddox is such a delicious combination of alpha male and protector that you won't be able to stop yourself from falling for him."~ Tabitha Black, USA Today Bestselling Author
USA Today Bestselling Authors Maggie Ryan and Alta Hensley join forces in bringing you the first novel in this action packed, romantic suspense trilogy full of bad boys and the women who love them.
Maddox Steele, along with his two brothers and father, lives by one code: Help all in need. Even if it means saving those who walk among the most sinister criminals of the world. Known as The Black Stallions, their mission is simple—provide rescue and safety to the underground.
Adira Nazar has no idea her entire life is about to explode into a million pieces. With her life in extreme danger, her only choice is to hand over complete trust to a dark and mysterious man she has never met… Maddox Steele.
Just another job…
Someone to protect like all the others…
But when Maddox sets eyes on Adira, all bets are off. She is his save, and he’s determined to make sure that nothing happens to this exotic beauty trapped in a ruthless world.
Tucked away at The Black Stallion Ranch, and with the few clues they have, can the Steeles put together the pieces, or will they lose Adira to the clutches of darkness?
Publisher’s Warning: This book contains graphic sex and BDSM elements.
The way she said “Sir” with a definite tone of respect was so different than how she’d said it those first couple of times when she was simply parroting his demanding she use the word. Now her respectful tone suggested she was truly bestowing the title of “Sir” to him and though the word were wonderful to hear, it was the look in her eyes, the way she arched to him, the feel of her hand dropping to his cock that had him pressing her down into the mattress. His lips sucked in a nipple, his tongue stroking across the puckered point, giving it a nip before moving to her other breast. She arched beneath him. His palm was splayed on her abdomen and with her movement, he looked down. The glimmer in her navel had him bending to run the tip of his tongue around her belly button. He’d caught a glimpse of the diamond stud in the hollow of her navel before, both on the boat that first night as well as when she’d laid splayed on her bed earlier that night. But, now, with her beneath him, he gave it a much closer look and admitted it was sexy as hell.
"Maddox" is the first book in the new Black Stallion Trilogy by Maggie Ryan and Alta Hensley. It can be read as a standalone since it's the first book, but the other two books will probably have more background information that will relate back to this book. While I've read quite a bit by Alta Hensley this is the first book that I've read by Maggie Ryan. After reading this I will be looking for more of her books.
"Maddox" is the story of Maddox (no surprise there) and Adira. Maddox is a cowboy and a Dom and a little bit of a military type. He's not military but he and his family operate a business of "saving" people. He's strong. He's sexy. He's Dominant. And he's capable (not sure if that's the right word, but he knows what he's doing and how to do it). Adira is a woman from a rich Arabic family in Dubai. She is educated, but she has always been pampered and kept from harm. When she enters Maddox' world after a personal tragedy, it is like nothing she's experienced before.
I really liked Maddox (and his family). I also liked Adira. Their relationship was a bit BDSM, a bit Domestic Discipline so I found it quite hot. I am interested to read more about Maddox' brothers in the next few books.
The only thing I had a problem with was that I found the book very slow to get into. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review and if I was reading it without that promise I might not have continued reading the book. I had a really hard time getting into the book and had to put it down several times. But once I did get into the "meat" of the story I liked it alot. So be aware that it might take a while to get into the story, but once you do it's definitely an entertaining one.
I give "Maddox" Three and a half stars!
