Synopsis:(From Amazon)stepbrotherdearest
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. But things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night. Then, 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+

This book is a doozy!  There is so much in this novel that it is, indeed, a true piece of art.  Though it is a romance novel, there are so many other underlying events tackled and experienced that one cannot help but fall in love with Elec a little.  Elec hasn’t had an easy life.  He’s never had a normal life.  While trying to get used to the hardened guy is hard, learning why he became so standoffish and cool is easy when one understands his family life.  Though he and Greta have their differences, it’s impossible to deny their forbidden romance is completely perfect, and one can only hope for a happily ever after.  Well written, this book will have you reading into the late hours of the morning.
