Michel Prince is the attending author.
Titan “Steel” Malone’s knew the mission was no win, but like a good soldier, he followed orders. Orders that took more than his ability sleep through the night without waking up screaming from the memories. The family he’d been adopted into now had one less son and another in a wheelchair leaving Steel shamed and broken.
Delaney “Dell” O’Riley, had been on evac duty, never imagining she’d be tasked to bring back her husband’s body. The loss triggered her need to run with their children in tow. When she can no longer run she reaches out to her in-laws. The ones grieving the loss of not only the son who died, but the one ghosting them from shame.
Steel had loved Dell from the first time he met her, only to lose his chance when his brother made his move first. Their family now torn apart with a legacy left by the one who passed now is bringing them back together. Can they put aside the guilt of losing the man that brought them together to heal in each other’s arms? Or will life once again send them into a no win mission breaking the bond they were welding together from two pieces of broken steel?
A reimagining of the original book; Encased by Steel.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given a copy of the book by the author for an honest review.
This is a book that has been rewritten. The story has been altered and I am writing a new review for it.
I met these characters when I fell in love with the spin off Steel MC Montana Charter. SO when I was given the chance to read the original MC I jumped. I mean I LOVED Steel and Dell.
This book starts with Steel, Dell, and Dell’s hubby/Steel’s brother Chip going on a military mission. Shit goes sideways and Chip dies. Steel and Dell are both left dealing with the loss of Chip. Little did they know there were lots of secrets in this thruple…well thruple minus sex. Steel and Dell danced around each other and were pushed together by Chip who grew up on a poly house. He knew his wife and brother had feelings but could never get them to cross that threshold.
When Chip dies, Steel and Dell spiral. Dell runs away and Steel sets up the MC that his brother dreamed of. Steel finally nuts up to get Dell to come and be part of the team. When they meet back up sparks FLY but so does guilt. These two got on my dang nerves with the push and pull to be together and then running away. Steel was gonna get a kick in the dick for his Hoes behavior. Dell was going to get a kick in her vagina from keeping things from Steel. When they finally make things connect in the right holes…like what I did there…they crash and are left spinning out.
We get to meet all the original members plus meet Sarah who will become Topaz and Red from the spin off series. I loved seeing them and their starts. Steel and Dell’s journey is a long one and one that sets a great foundation for the future of the MC and the Montana charter.
I loved the new rewrite plus all it added and cleaned up from the original version. This new story gives a better understanding of how my fav MC started and the cast of characters we love. Now when do I get Sal’s story with her husbands??? I am ready ladies!!

“Michel Prince is a wonderful author with a real talent for writing.”-Amazon Review of Triple B Baking Co.

The focus is on creating two strong, independent characters who can stand on their own, but complement each other as a couple.”- Amazon Review of Silly Girl

With characters yelling “It’s my turn damn it!!!” She tries to explain to them that alas, she can only type a hundred and twenty words a minute and they will have wait their turn. She knows eventually they find their way out of her head and to her fingertips and she looks forward to sharing them with you.
