~ Review ~ Destroyed: Steel Country #2 by MJ Fields

Destroyed: Steel Country #2 by MJ Fields

5 Wickedly Destroyed๐ŸŒŸ's

MJ has managed to turn a character that I couldn't stand from her previous book,
Hammered: Steel Country #1,  into someone that I'm rooting for .. unbelievable!

She was able to flip my opinion by opening my eyes to the circumstances and issues that got both Garrett & Juliana to where they were in life. For me this is both a reality check and a humbly experience. It's a a reminder that we should NOT judge one another . You never know why someone has done something until you walk in their shoes, face what they've had to face and endure what they've had to endure. I should never assume that just because I've been blessed with a good life that others have had the same opportunities. This world can be cruel and hateful and these characters have been on the receiving end of it in the worst of ways.

As a parent, I find myself asking:

How far would you be willing to go to ensure your child gets what he/she needs?

Just as important is the realization that your past does NOT define you! It may shape you, but it should NEVER define you!

Mags continues to be embedded in my heart with her sage advice.

This story shows an evolution of friends to enemies and back again. Miscommunications or simply lack of communication takes a toll on the Falcon family unit as a whole. Abuse, heartache and tears were unavoidable as I immersed myself in the tangled webs of deceit throughout this book.

Garrett's actions are what some may describe as unacceptable; he's been wronged - in too many ways to count. Perhaps his path took a wrong turn, but regardless of the route he's traveled, it has led him to Falcon's Landing and back to his brothers. His passion is so strong and steadfast. He knows what he wants and he's not afraid to go after it.

Juliana has experienced hurt and heartache with every turn she takes. Yet, she's a fighter and she's not afraid to do what she has to do in order to make things right for her child.

Little Brand stole my heart. He's a go-getter. Kids are resilient but the manner that he takes everything in stride is simply amazing. The confusion and hurt are there, and while he may lack the ability to truly understand it all, what he does give is acceptance. It's heartfelt and heartwarming to what the transformation in his life.

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom, become completely #Destroyed, in order to find what you've been looking for your whole life!

In the end the kids may 'Steel' the show (from #friendshipseeds to #littlelady, Brands already got it covered), but the passion, hurt and healing is what will forever stay in my mind! And of course, Garrett's dirty talking too! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜œ
