WITH EVERY STEP by Natasha D Frazier
SERIES: McCall Family series #2
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHER: Encouraging Works
RELEASE DATE: December 20, 2021
Born and groomed to be CEO, Darius is ready to run the family business, except Jeffrey McCall has reserved that position for the oldest son.
Darius McCall’s CEO ambitions have driven his choices since junior high school. He’s worked alongside his father, preparing for the position most of his life.
When Jeffrey McCall names Andrew, Darius’ older brother, as McCall Resorts’ new CEO instead of him, Darius becomes furious. He’s determined to prove that CEO is his rightful place – and spearheading the construction of their new Houston resort is just the way to do that – except Kennedy Slaughter may be a bigger distraction than he expected.
Kennedy Slaughter becomes Slaughter Construction Inc.’s President after the sudden death of her twin brother. She now bears the weight of the company’s success on her shoulders. When McCall Resorts hires her company to build their Houston facility, she works to make her brother proud and fights against anything that will hinder the project’s success – including the undeniable attraction between her and Darius McCall.
What will it take for Darius and Kennedy to secure the success they desire and balance the growing emotional bond between them?

Though I enjoy all the scenes in With Every Step that involve Darius and Kennedy, my favorite scene is when they first meet. (This is my favorite scene in every romance.)
For Darius and Kennedy, they both have preconceived notions about the other. He believes she’s not as capable of leading the job because of her gender. She is concerned with making her deceased brother proud, so she’s worried what Darius and his team may think of her since construction work isn’t traditionally a woman run industry.
Then they finally meet! I love the electricity that sparks between the two of them. Not knowing what’s happening. Not understanding why they feel connected when they’re strangers. Unexplainable for them. But to the audience, we know that’s the starting point of something transpiring between them. It’s only a matter of what and how long.
I get goosebumps every time. 😊 I live for those “first-meeting-moments.”
Here’s a snippet:
“I’m Kennedy. Pleasure to meet you all.” Kennedy framed her face with her brightest smile and shook each hand in the order introduced. Thank goodness for the practice of giving a firm, confident handshake in business school because they took no mercy when squeezing her hand. When she shook the last McCall’s hand, an indescribable warmth snaked up her arm.
Almost like their hands were made to be held by each other.
Something told her the feeling was mutual because for a millisecond, he paused the shake and hiked one eyebrow, like she could give him answers about what had just transpired between them. The right corner of his lip tilted upward, and something she couldn’t identify slithered through her.
