Publisher's Summary

Contains graphic sexual content and language. Recommended for adult listeners age 18+

Twenty-six-year-old Abraham O'Donnell is the CFO of Steel Inc. After working tirelessly for over a year, he takes a week off to enjoy the sand, surf, and bikini-clad women of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. After all, he's earned it. When a brief interlude with a flight attendant in her hotel room goes awry, Abe heads to a rental home with a private beach. While floating naked in the pool, he learns a guest house on the property is also occupied. So much for rest and relaxation. Ever the gentleman, Abe tries to make the most of his misfortune and offers to make the beauties staying on the property some dinner.

It's senior year and Nikolette (Nikki) Bassett is a few days late for her last college Spring Break with her four best girlfriends. When she arrives, all these ladies can talk about is the guy next door. And once Nikki gets a look at him, she knows what they mean. Fresh from an afternoon of surfing, Nikki can hardly believe her eyes when Abe approaches. The sexual tension and banter between the two of them leads to steamy hot sex on the Atlantic shore.

Very juvenile

The narrators aren’t the greatest however I’m not sure even great narration could save the writing of this one. Returned and disappointed

ENDING RUINED BOOK....

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I have listened to the Steel Brothers Series and knew a bit about Abe from those books and was looking forward to this one. I won't give anything away but have to say that the last bit ruined the entire book for me. After listening to all the other MJ Fields books I am completely surprised at how she let this one end. So disappointed.

What about Lauren Sweet and James Cavenaugh ’s performance did you like?

I have always enjoyed Lauren Sweet and James was new and did a good job.

Any additional comments?

Due to the ending of this book I am having to give this a 2 star rating. I had intended to give a 4 star rating and then the last bit completely ruined it.

Blah

It lacked a lot and I can't begin to describe it! The author tried too hard to add the bdsm element to it

Abe Stars


To be honest I wasn’t sure what I was getting with this book. I loved other MJ Fields titles.

So getting a glimpse in to this world was pretty freaking cool if I am honest with you. I to feel like sometimes the character cross over could be smoother, only because I can’t remember how some of them connected to the other. Maybe I should have read the series in order I don’t know. But it still all worked well.

I loved Abe’s personality, his demeanour. He is everything you think of when you think Alpha male.
There first encounter is kind of cool, I really enjoyed that whole scene. Even though Abe is 26 and Nikki is 22 he seems much older, whether that’s from experience or what not. His lifestyle isn’t hard core or anything overly out there.

I found Nikki to be a little immature, but still a strong female character. If some of the things happened to me that happened to her, I think I would have fallen apart so good on her.
I think the only thing I didn’t like was the end, and how she didn’t stick to what she was doing. I don’t want to give anything away.. So over all enjoy Abe and glad I have more of the series to read.

I really liked the narration as well, I like the male narrator more, I usually do. But the dual narration is pretty awesome.

👞👠What a mighty good story!

Abe and Nikki's story is mighty good. You see, this man knew what he wanted in a woman. And he knew that woman had to be Nikki. Now, Nikki was an independent woman. She needed to get the full scoop for her college paper on what makes this handsome eligible bachelor tick. To say she put them on one hell of a course of danger to make it happen is somewhat of an understatement. But it was such a joy to go along for the ride. The narrator was really good reading their story along the way. These two stubborn, sexy, people were made for each other. I highly recommend their story. Enjoy!

Abe and Nikki

Did not expect Abe to be so.. Wow! He’s alpha, dominant, and super confident. Nikolette is sweet, a little insecure, but also a no-nonsense woman. This was a hot, steamy, and intriguing story. Abe and Nikolette have an instant connection but Abe is a little pushy making Nikki run away. There is a lot of push and pull between these two. I enjoyed this story.
Narration was fantastic.

Loved ♥️🔥❤️ Abe’s Story ♥️

I loved the storyline! Abe O’Donell is bff with the Steel brothers. He’s also their hardworking CFO.
He finally takes a vacation and goes to Florida for some surfing and a good time! Where his bunker is it’s attached to another. It has four beautiful single college students. He meets one and calls her Four! They have amazing hot sex and then she leaves him a pillow note thanking him for a good time.
He gets a little upset and returns to New Jersey. I absolutely loved this book, the storyline and plot was sooo good and the narrative was really good ❤️
Abe is a handsome, rich bachelor and is being interviewed for a local paper.
Nicolette Bassett’s is into journalism and what’s to go into interviewing athletes. She and Abe have a strong attraction and this book is a must listen!
I enjoyed relating to Abe’s mom. I got so emotional listening about them.
Such great characters, with suspense and drama, but a great romance and steamy love scenes 🔥❤️
I plan on reading/listening to this amazing authors books 📚

What was up with that ending?

Ok, so this book was very good (very sexy) but the ending was so stupid; like it was up to you to decide on what happened at the final scene. Otherwise, I would’ve given it 5 stars. I loved how towards the end Abe showed his love and softness, where in the beginning he was a complete egotistical a**hole.

Not as good as Men of Steel

I was super happy to read Abe’s story. It wasn’t terrible but I feel like it left a lot to be desired. Lauren Sweet has been a narrator in the past but her voice got too nasaly often with the character of Nikki and makes her sound like a whiny little girl, which I mean honestly her character kind of is. I feel eh about.

Love MJ Fields

MJ Fields is one of my go to authors when I need to listen to something I know will be good. Abe is the first book in the Ties of Steel series. We do see glimpses of him in the Men of Steel books, and this gives us the chance to see him. Always knew he was a good businessman, but this Dom side of him I found to be hot and fun to listen to. I had reservations about the book, but found that Abe's character had a very warm protective side and it is something that Nikolette was drawn to. She loved his looks, but the his ferocity of owning her I think was the major draw that kept bringing her back. I found Nikki's character a little annoying. While I can understand the need to be your own woman and Abe could be stifling, common courtesy tells me to answer a message to him. On more than one occasion, she totally was blowing Abe off. A little immature, but her age definitely played into that as well as adjusting to her new lifestyle. I also love seeing the Steel men, they are always a laugh when they get together. This community that MJ Fields has created is like coming home and is a joy to listen to.

I loved James Cavenaugh's performance of Abe. His voice has the grit and warmth necessary for this character, and his narration was spot on. Lauren Sweet always gives a new adult performance great character. Her voice is a little young for me whenever I hear it, which sometimes gives me pause, more of a teen voice than a early twenties woman and for these characters, more mature choice would have been better for me.
