Doing her best to stay afloat amidst the sh!t storm that has become her life, Elle is hanging on by a thread. Between worrying about Fernie’s precarious future, an incident with a Shemar Moore look-alike gone terribly wrong, and an inability to let go of her feelings for J, Elle just can’t seem to get her head straight.

Deciding a change of atmosphere is what she needs, Elle heads to Mexico to study abroad for a semester.

She has no idea that she is walking into an even worse storm.

One that involves a pissed off MC President, a ruthless drug cartel, and a man willing to die to have her light.

Blog Tour + Review: Steel & Ice by Emily Eck

Title: Steel & Ice
Author: Emily Eck
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: January 26, 2014
Tour Host: Dreams Come True Promotions

Elle isn't looking for love. Hardened by years on the streets, she's learned to take care of herself by covering her heart with ice and keeping men at arm's length. She's not weak and she doesn't need to be saved. But she wouldn't mind getting laid a little more often.

J's covered his heart with steel. He owe's his life to an MC that is not what it seems. Since he knows his priority must be to the club's demands, no matter how illegal, he decided a long time ago that love didn't fit anywhere in his life.
A not so chance, but definitely hot encounter on a crowded dance floor should be enough for J, but he can't seem to stay away from Elle. As she begins to melt his steel, and he manages to chip away her ice, his forced loyalty to the MC threatens to tear them apart. When the risk becomes greater than J expected, will love be enough to keep Elle from freezing her heart to him?

First off I must say....I LOVED IT!!! lol
This was such a real and true story. At first I was a bit taken back by the harsh and real language. I mean, there are a lot of cussing and slang in there, I swere alot ( a bad habit of but I haven´t read many books with this much in it. Also there was alot of drugs involved. But all this made the story so much better and easier to relate to. Since I grew up and currently live in a big town it´s very relateble. I loved every aspect of the story. 

One thing I must pick on though, not sure if my kindle had an error or something but for some reason a lot of words containing the letter " L " were gone so sometimes I had to read a bit slower to understand. Was that just me or..?

So, to the storyline and charachters. I loved the storyline, there was always something going on and I was never bored. It was funny, sexy, exciting and down to earth. Elle is really kick-ass and I loved her. I would love a friend like her! lol She has attitude, sass and balls of steel. I would never speak or act as she does sometimes and I sometimes wish I would have the guts to. Elle has the biggest heart and is really caring. 
Then we have the sexy J! *swoon* I loved him and I would jump him any day! He is a real man and also he has a heart of gold.
The ending of this book kept me hanging and wanting more. I was really biting down my nails at the end and I can´t wait for more!

Emily is a Midwestern Gal, but could be anywhere as you read this. She gypsy's the country, as well as south of the border. Adventure feeds her soul, and offers great writing material. She loves kids and working with teens, but can only handle caring for four-legged furry friends. A crazy dog and laid back cat have trained her to be their partner in life. Vices include Swedish Fish, ignoring chores in favor of reading, and caring too much for the people in her life. She chose to write this bio in third person as she is an Aries, and found writing in first person ended up with her writing an excessively long life story. Aries like to talk about themselves. It is something Emily is working on being more mindful of.
