I have fallen in love with this series! This book is no exception. In Steel Beauty we are introduced to the Pocono Pack. Belinda from the Halle Pumas ends up being the mate of Rick, the alpha of the Pocono Wolves. I found it interesting because my hubby is from The Poconos. :) As with the Halle Pumas pride this pack is struggling through a change in leadership. Rick is the new alpha and his pack is still going through growing pains.
One of the issues that this new pack is suffering is that Belinda or Belle can't join the pack because of the injuries that were inflicted in the last book while protecting Sheri the marshall's mate. It is decided that it would be better for her to stay with the pride until her hip is better. Which ends up being around five months. During that time the most dominant female in the pack tries to take over. She's a royal bitch and I couldn't stand her.
Rick and Belle have to struggle through not only a new mating and her coming from a pride to a pack but also a dominance battle. I loved Belle in this book. She really shows her stuff. I also liked the packmates including the omega Chela and the second and Marshall Ben and Dave. Looks like the next Pocono pack book will be with Ben and Dave as well! I think my fav was Chela out of all of them. The way she treated Belle and defended her against Gina was awesome.
My favorite quotes:
"So this is what it's like to be pussy-whipped.
He decided not to share that little observation with Belle. She'd probably do something gruesome to him in his sleep."
"And last, but not least, you will show deference to the Omega.
Because if you don't, you will regret it in a very bad, not good, terribly awful way."
