This is the second book in the BLACK SHADOWS duet, Cass and Calder's story. You must read GOLD SHIMMER before reading STEEL RUSH.

Cass has spent years trying to forget her past. But the thing about pasts…they always come back around, sometimes in the most unexpected ways. When Celeste goes missing, Cass discovers how intricately entangled her past and present are with Celeste's, making it impossible to walk away.

In an effort to ignore his own painful history, Calder challenges a corrupt, underground organization, but his mission gets sidelined when Cass’s life becomes endangered.

The passion simmering between Calder and Cass tempts them to share their darkest secrets, but can their trust in each other help them unravel the mystery surrounding Celeste? Can they eliminate the threat to Cass before the past overshadows the present and destroys their intense connection?


I have been keen to get my hands on Steel Rush because the previous book, Gold Shimmer, left me with so many questions. Now that I’ve finished Steel Rush, I must applaud P.T. Michelle, because I did not see that coming! It was a fabulous ending, full of twists, suspense and a plenty sizzling moments between Cass and Calder!

Cass begins this book still masquerading as Celeste, living at the Carver estate. Celeste hadn’t returned home and now Cass wants to get to the bottom of the mystery, without getting herself implicated in the disappearance. Calder comes to the estate and insists on staying by her side. Slowly, more details emerge about Celeste and her past, and the plot gets thicker!

I enjoyed seeing Cass and Calder work together. She was hesitant at first, because she was unsure of Calder’s true feelings, but he soon shows his loyalty and will do anything to protect her. Calder has a fierce protective side and wants to stay as close as he can to Cass. His feelings are strong for her and he doesn’t like that she has to spend so much time around another man. But they both have to play their parts to uncover the culprits. Calder and Cass are always hot together, and when they managed to get some alone time in this book, it was as scorching and as intense as I expected.

It was good to see guest appearances from other characters that I have come to love throughout this series too. Bash and Talia help out when needed, Mina was able to bring supplies and Damien was able to schmooze with the elite business class. I love all these characters and I am hoping that Mina and her brother Damien get their own books too!

P.T. Michelle did a remarkable job at weaving the mystery and suspense throughout Steel Rush. She kept me thinking and on the edge of my seat. I had my suspects, but didn’t expect the turn of events that occurred. It was a very clever read and I was surprised as to how it all wrapped up. I am excited to get more from this world!!
