It’s been two months since Phillips was killed in front of us. Two months of training and waiting. Time is up and another new recruit is due to arrive any minute; the cousin of the man who betrayed us all. The guys aren’t going to like it, but Jackson has overridden my protests.
Just when I didn’t think things could get any worse, my contact with Aunt Beatrice is discovered and my actions have put her in mortal danger. A hit was ordered from a cartel in Mexico. Led by the cousin of Diego Fernando’s widow, the Vega Cartel has a blood debt to settle and they have come to collect.
Jordon is becoming more attractive to me by the day; as my feelings for him continue to grow, our situation becomes even more complicated when our connection is discovered by one of the team.
Events spiral out of my control, forcing me to face my demons and darkest fears. I find myself teetering on the edge of good and evil, poised to fall.
A sinister message has me racing to Mexico, trying to beat the dawn. What I find waiting for me there may spell the end of my life and Steel Corps itself.
I must decide; am I hard enough to make this choice? Is my soul a big enough sacrifice for the lives of innocents? There is no question. I am Staff Sergeant Michaels and I am Steel.

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.
Hardened by Steel (Steel Corps Book 2) is the second book in this series and it delivers a great story. The characters and story line are well-developed. The story follows a secret part of the military that no one knows exists. “Mac” is the leader of this group, and she is recovering from events from book one CORE OF STEEL. They get a new member of the STEEL CORPS to replace a fallen member. There are members of this group that are not happy with their member, because he is the cousin of the one who betrayed them. They will have to get over this prejudice and deal with the case ahead of them. This mission will show how HARDENED BY STEEL they really are. If you love military stories them you will love this one. I loved the characters in this book. If you have not started this series then I urge you to do so. I am putting J.B. Haven on my authors to watch out for list. I will definitely read more books from this author. I give HARDENED BY STEEL 5/5 STARS.
