Maddox (The Black Stallion Trilogy #1)by Maggie Ryan, Alta Hensley



Goodreads Review



Maddox Steele, along with his two brothers and father, lives by one code: Help all in need. Even if it means saving those who walk among the most sinister criminals of the world. Known as The Black Stallions, their mission is simple—provide rescue and safety to the underground.

Adira Nazar has no idea her entire life is about to explode into a million pieces. With her life in extreme danger, her only choice is to hand over complete trust to a dark and mysterious man she has never met… Maddox Steele.

Just another job…
Someone to protect like all the others…
But when Maddox sets eyes on Adira, all bets are off. She is his save, and he’s determined to make sure that nothing happens to this exotic beauty trapped in a ruthless world.

Tucked away at The Black Stallion Ranch, and with the few clues they have, can the Steeles put together the pieces, or will they lose Adira to the clutches of darkness?

Publisher’s Warning: This book contains graphic sex and BDSM elements.  



Once upon a time, there was a girl who thought her favourite love was riding her horse across the dunes of Arabia, until she saw a cowboy in a black hat. From that moment, her destiny was changed….

Adira Nazar’s an Arabian princess is the daughter of one of the most important families who have legal businesses and not so legal businesses. What she doesn’t know is that her world is about to implode.

The heroine in the book is strong, sassy but at the same time quite naïve. There were times that she behaved like a spoilt brat and pouted as a child. But overall I admire her persistence and her strength to deal with what was happening to her.

The Steele family has a twenty year old debt to pay that debt is getting key family of the Nazar’s family out of Dubai as they are in danger.

Maddox was there for the save of Adira but in the end she is hers. Mine. This is an action packed book with main and secondary characters I just can’t get enough of.

The blurb sounded really quite cheesy to be honest but cheesy blurb aside hands down. I haven’t read something so unique and original.

There are BDSM elements in the book and although done well there were times were I thought that Adira was really quite out of her depth and that her feelings and behaviour were out of place when it came to the chemistry with Maddox.

The ending was a bit rushed but there is somewhat of cliffhanger but with Adira and Maddox’s story being wrapped up Stryder’s book is next. Maddox’s adopted brother.

I read this book because my friend Mareike read it and left such a great review that I had to check it out and all I can say is that I really enjoyed this book a lot.
