A STEPBROTHER ROMANCE
Intended for mature audiences only
I met him before I knew.
I loved him before I knew.
I didn’t know he was my stepbrother when I fell for Bladen. I fell for a mystery guy who I spent a long, amazing weekend with. Then he got up and left me, without even a goodbye. I was nothing more than a bit of fun.
He broke my heart.
I didn’t see him again.
Until my mom and her new husband, Jack, decide to take us all on a family vacation to the lake so I can meet my new stepbrothers for the first time.
I don’t see it coming.
When he gets out of that car, my world stops. My passionate lover is…my stepbrother.
He isn’t the same man. He’s a prick and he makes sure I know it.
I’m not the same woman. I’m in love with him and I very much plan to make sure he knows it.
He won’t make my life easy. I won’t give up.
ADD TO GOODREADS
I will read anything and everything that Bella Jewel writes. I didn't jump on this step-sibling craze that's going on right now. But I had to sign up for this one. And I'm so glad that I did! It's another great one by Bella Jewel.
This book had my heart hurting at the beginning. What Aria and her mom, Nancy, went through. Wow, just wow. i really felt for them.
Eleven years later and Nancy has gotten remarried to Jack. Jack has three sons, but the families haven't meet yet. When they do, Aria sees her mystery man!
Their story starts a year earlier and happened over a fantastic weekend. They said no names, and then he was gone. She tried to move on and past him, but there was a connection and she just couldn't stop thinking about him.
The three boys are: Bladen "Blade", Broderick "Brody", and Ripley "Lee".
"I'm in love with my step-brother, and there's nothing I can do about it."
Blade runs so hot and cold. It's a constant push and pull. With both Aria and Blade fighting their feelings and trying to move on.
"Fuck, you got under my skin. Every time I saw you, I wanted you more. That night, it shouldn't have happened, but I couldn't stop...I wanted you so fucking badly. I knew after, I knew I had to walk. If I didn't I would have never stepped away from you, and we both know how that would have ended."
I really enjoyed all these characters. I love all three of the brothers. I just want to give Ripley and Brody both hugs. Blade, I wanted to kick his ass most of the book! But he did redeem himself.
Nancy gives the best advice and she is a great mom!
"Life is a whole lot of what ifs honey, but I've learned that things can happen when you least expect them and those things can turn your life around in one day, one hour, or one damned second. What ifs mean nothing to me. Something could happen tomorrow, or it could last the rest of your life. Live for the moment and live for you heart, not everyone else's."
I can't wait for Brody's story next. This is an awesome read and I know Brody's will be also!
