Summary

Five seconds.

A deafening blast. Pain. Silence.

That was all it took for an IED to end my life as I knew it. The man I was shattered in a hard wave of sound and debris that rained down on me like death itself. And six months later, after waking up to an inescapable hell, I found myself wishing that death had found me. Until her.

Miranda Jacobs swept into my life like a cool breeze on a smoldering day. With her smart mouth and her ridiculous jokes, she brought me back to life one minute at a time. Turned out time wasn't on our side.

Five seconds.

Screams. Twisted metal. Silence.

And I'd lost it all again - only this time, I had no one to blame but myself.

Decent, but not as good as the first in the series

This wasn’t as good as See Through Heart (the first book in the series). I didn’t feel as emotionally invested and nearly gave it 3 stars (ok read), but it did have some aspects that were powerful so it deserved more than that.

I think it was the drama for the sake of drama towards the end that bothered me most. That, and the sudden turnaround in personality of a particular person in the epilogue that seemed to be included just for the sake of making it a fairytale, but it seemed unnecessary.

Still worth a listen, and I’m getting the next one in the series.

Excellent narration and fabulous story!

One of the things I love about Amie Knight is that she can encompass so many feelings and emotions in her books- she can write witty dialog, touching emotional situations, and passion too! A Steel Heart had all of this and more. I loved how quirky Miranda was- after meeting her in See Through Heart I knew she was a character I wanted to get to know better. (Please note that A Steel Heart can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone.) I enjoyed her profession so much- she's a romance novel editor! So perfect! Holden's story was captivating and had me gripped. Their meeting and interactions were so well-written. I was glad this was written in dual POV because both characters were so interesting and well-developed.

Both narrators were excellent. Although they are both new to me, I enjoyed their performances so much. My go-to speed for audiobooks is 1.25X and A Steel Heart was perfect at this speed- very conversational and easy to follow.

Heartbreakingly Beautiful Love Story

Wow... I absolutely loved Steel Heart. Holden and Miranda’s story crushed my heart into a million little pieces one moment and then had it overflowing with joy and hope for the couple in the next.
Miranda is a character to admire. She had a difficult childhood and experience the loss of someone dear to her at a young age but didn’t let her hardships make her into a bitter person. Instead she’s selfless and caring. She’s a woman both beautiful on the inside and out.
Holden seems like a rude and grumpy man on the outside looking in but really he is a man who has tragically lost a great deal in a short amount of time. Deeply hidden under his ruff exterior is a kind and loving man. A man who may even be a secret romantic.
Miranda’s persistence has Holden opening up and letting her in. She becomes the bright light shining in his sea of darkness bring him back to life. Just when it seemed like things where looking up something happens that may cause Holden to lose it all again.
I really loved both narrators. They did a fantastic job and I look forward to listening to more stories narrated by them.

Great love story. 1st POV. HEA. Standalone.

It was a great, easy listen. Not much angst. The narration was spot on. Very sweet. Love the ending.

Ms. Quirky and Mr. Brooding

I really enjoyed the story of Miranda and Holden. She's funny and quirky. He's hot and brooding. He's suffering from PTSD, and she's all about cuddling with babies in the NICU. A perfect pair.

Other items that made me love this story:
1. Donuts.
2. Book-world speak
3. Name dropping Aly Martinez
4. Men reading romance
5. All the different lists Miranda made

"No regrets, only happiness."

Wow!

Amie Knight done it again! Oh my gosh, she is that good!!! I love Miranda & Holden’s love story. It was just so beautiful and drowning into the “feels.” It was truly, madly, and deeply a great addition to my so-called Romance/Comp. books. Yup, I was and stil is just so blown away!

Lisa and Kale as Narrators are not so bad.
