On the way to our parents wedding in the mountains, the mother of all snow storms attacks, leaving me stranded in a remote cabin with my new stepbrother.
My hot as hell, I-need-to-change-my-panties because-they’re-soaked, cocky asshole of a stepbrother, Bentley McAllister.
The kicker of it all?
The only items he's packed are liquor and condoms, and he’s looking at me like he wants to put both to good use.
My name is Sierra, and my libido can only take so much.
Send help!


“Listen, princess.” I lift her chin toward mine, meeting this gorgeous big blue eyes.  “I’m not sure if you noticed, but we’re stranded together in the middle of fucking nowhere, with only each other to count on.  You can fight me all you want, but there’s one thing you need to understand.  I’m going to protect you.  I’m going to take care of you.  And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m six-foot-four, and probably have a hundred pounds on you.  My body is going to produce a lot more heat than yours.  Now calm the fuck down, and let me get you warm.  Got it, sweetheart?”  Her fighting stops immediately.
She nods, coyly, blinking those baby blues at me, all of her fight disappearing.  “Got it.”Her voice is small, and I suddenly feel like a dick.
“Good. Glad we’re on the same page.” I tug her body closer so we’re pressed tightly together, and I hold her to my chest, wrapping her in my arms. A contented little sigh escapes her lips. The top of her head doesn’t even reach my chin. She packs a lot of sass for such a small thing.  I inhale, and breathe in the scent of her shampoo. The smell of vanilla and lavender fill my nose.  Damn, who knew that combination could be so perfect?  It’s intoxicating and I can feel my body slowly start to react to the smell and the images my mind starts to produce.  The way her slight curves mold to my body serves to warm me up pretty damn quick.




Taboo romances have become an obsession for me, particularly stepbrother-themed ones, which is what drew me to this tale of soon-to-be stepsiblings who hide their mutual attraction behind snark and anger.  Getting trapped in close quarters though has them seeing a different side to the other allowing them to give into feelings long kept at bay.

This story is one of insta-love and is a carefree read that brings a bit of afternoon delight to readers.  It's not groundbreaking but it is fun and flirty with a hero who's a bit of a player and a bit rough around the edges as he makes no excuses for his playboy ways.  Bentley's sexy with a bit of naughty in his nature who quickly embraces his protective side when he and Sierra are in danger.  It was an appealing change that had me rooting for him to finally grow up.  He's always seen Sierra as too perfect, and too judgmental, but their differences led to lots of sexual tension with biting banter that made their sexual interludes even more scorching.

Sierra has always seen Bentley in a negative light for his playboy ways, but she's equally fascinated by him and the intense sexuality he exudes.  From the moment the story started, with their battle of the sexes underway, there was a sense of change on the horizon.  Their interactions were tense and teeming with sensuality just waiting to explode which had me on the edge of my seat.  Sierra may think she's different from Bentley when it comes to sex but seeing them together showed a couple who were equal in their intensity with her embracing her naughty side easily.  She may seem cold early on, but being around Bentley brings out her sexy side to add a bit of fun to their sensual interludes.

From start to finish this was a fun read with a nice flow.  The character's feelings though weren't dealt with in any depth which kept me from fully immersing myself in their relationship.  The situation they end up in leading to their newfound connection was a bit melodramatic which made their proclamations of love a bit unbelievable.  Ultimately though, those looking for a book to take them away from the stresses of the day will find this a sexy romp with super steamy encounters and a tarnished hero whose charm is infectious.

My rating for this is a C+
