I know who I am. I’m Cyrus Steel, son, brother, uncle, friend to people I choose to bring into my life.
I could fuck up anyone I want.
I know the devastation I can and have caused.
I can’t change the past, but I have chosen how to live now.
I like to fuck, and I will do a chick better than she’s ever been done. Hard and wild. No more than three hook ups. No expectations, no one gets hurt. As long as she agrees …it’s on.
One of my favorite tattoo’s bridges the V, and it says Truth.
A constant reminder of who I was and who I am now.
I wasn’t sure I knew how or even if I should tell him there was no one who loved me. Tony was the last person to say those words to me and he hadn’t meant it. He just wanted to use me.
That’s what this beautiful man underneath me, showed me today. He hadn’t used me, he didn’t even know me. But he thought I was beautiful, and he was nice to me. Tony was wrong about him, and even though I never want to see him again, I wish I could tell him just how wrong he was.
Can truth be altered? Can truth be seen when walls are built for protection, for self preservation? Will self doubt and years of pain cloud two hearts from finding their truth?
I was first introduced to MJ Felids with the book Men of Steel, and Jase, the start of Jase Steel and his love, Carly and although you don’t have to read the those books to read Cyrus, it helps. Cyrus is the older brother of Jase and is described in the Jase’s book as looking like ‘The Terminator’, and right then I knew I wanted to read his book. Cyrus is a BEAST in size and personality.
Cyrus is a ‘take care of shit now guy’, and as hard as they came. With having been in the Navy and had several tours under his belt before coming to work in his families tattoo shop, Forever Steel. He’s a no-nonsense guy and they type of guy who is not into his feelings, especially when it comes to a women. He has his three-time ‘wild ride’ limit and that’s it.
“I have rules; I’ll fuck you better than you’ve ever been fucked before, hard and wild. No more than three hook ups, understand?”
Then in walks Tara, a friend of his brother’s girlfriend and also a reluctant stripper thanks to her greasy ass boyfriend. All her life she has been shuffled back and forth between people who don’t want her until she found and stuck with her boyfriend who really just wanted to exploit her. Cyrus see’s something in her that he must save and sets out in doing so, and hey if he happens to get his three rides then so be it. Until he decides its better they remain friends. But can they?
I found that I liked this one as much, if not more than Carly and Jase’s story. If I thought that Carly and Jase had amazing chemistry, Cyrus and Tara blew my mind! As will her other book, this one was also written in dual POV’s and MJ Fields has a way of writing from the guys POV really well, I absolutely loved reading from Cyrus’s POV, he was so gritty and real. I did have a hard time following the dialogue when more than two people got to talking in a scene, as it wasn’t really clarified who was talking to who. The ending was great and exactly what I was hoping for, I love when i see a character change(a little) but still remain who they are. And again while you don’t need to read the other’s in the series as, it’s nice to get the back story on them all. MJ Fields is a name to watch out for and I can’t wait to read about the rest of the Steel brothers, and I hope the next one is Zandor.

About the Author
I am a very new self published writer. I will tell you I have always had a very vivid imagination. Starting at age 3 (as it states in my Baby Book).
Sigma was my very first love (imaginary boyfriend). He lived about fifteen miles from my childhood home, (a farm). I took him chicken noodle soup every night on one of our families snowmobiles, (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring). Apparently he was very ill and “Thank God” I was able to take care of him.
Next was my very first self publishing gig. At eight my cousins and I (and yes I was the president) wrote a newsletter and sold it to our family members.
Years later I decided to put it back into print to entertain my cousin as she was on an aircraft carrier on 9/11 (Kick ass cousin BTW) and very far away from home during a very scary time for our country, (protecting our butts).
Fast forward to 2012. I read 50 shades and thought, I can do that, (meaning writing). I have two complete series The Love Series, and Wrapped. I have two new series Burning Souls and Men of Steel. Ten books in 13 months. CrAzY and wonderful.
I love love! ( I would love to reference Pinks new song here, however I am not sure if that would cause copyright issues.)I also tend to enjoy watching people grow and change with self realization and moments of clarity that just sneak up behind you and smack you in the head. I love people and have always been able to see both sides of a story. Each person that comes into our life leaves us with something it is what we choose to do with it that helps us grow.
I live in central New York in the middle of nowhere and am surrounded by family and friend most the time. I run a small business out of my home and spend time reading and doing the typical Mommy things. Our house is full of pets and friends and noise ninety percent of the time, and I would have it no other way.
I love people,music, laughter, hugs, and books.
