My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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+
Stepbrother Dearest is the first book I’ve read by Penelope Ward. If her other books are anything like Stepbrother Dearest then I have some MAJOR reading to do.
This book pulled me in right from the very beginning. I had to MAKE myself put the book down and go to bed. Elec is Greta’s stepbrother through marriage who is sent to live with his father and his new family for the school year. This is the first time that Greta has ever met him and she is determined to win him over. Does she succeeded in winning him over or do they kill each other… I’m not saying. If you want to know go 1-click this baby now. You will not be disappointed.
I know this book is a standalone but I have my finger, toes and eyes crossed for more Elec!!!
