You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him. At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California. It had been years since I’d seen Elec. When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again. And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane. I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again. Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel. **Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+
Why?! Penelope… Why do you always make me cry? I loved this story! I got it on my kindle and dug right in! I finished it at 4:30 AM and WOW! I love the fact that you start the reader from the beginning of their journey. I’m able to feel what the characters feel as they go through it throughout the years. In the beginning I was thinking maybe I’ll hold off on this story. Elec sounds like an ass from the tiny bit I saw on a teaser and excerpt. I should have known better! I mean… he was an ass, but he was obviously much more and as this story progressed, I felt for them both!
Greta and Elec totally had my heart! I love their story! Jake Undone, My Skylar… Every one of the books I’ve read by this author have had me an emotional mess while reading them… all while hoarding empty boxes of tissues by the end! I do this to hide my literary breakdown in the world that is Penelope Ward. Step Brother Dearest was no different and is a must read! Don’t get me wrong… Angst yes, but the love story and the eventual passion between these two was beautiful. I was jealous myself because I want my own Elec. One with his own Jacob would be GREAT! 😉 LOL If you want to know what I’m talking about, read the book! This story was worth the sleepless night! I started at 9 PM and finished at 4 AM!
We rate this book 5 stars.
