Amazon (99c or #FREE with #KindleUnlimited):
Synopsis: Levi Black is an s.o.b.Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he’s a pretentious, obnoxious, womanizing jacka** who thinks the world revolves around him. He wouldn’t be wrong. A famous soccer player, his skills on and off the field have won him medals, trophies, women, and the cover of every heartthrob magazine in the country. He’s broken nearly every bone in his body and a few hearts along the way, including mine—his stepsister—and lived to tell about it. One night changed everything, and I’ve avoided him like the plague ever since. Just long enough to finish college, to bury the hurt, and to outrun the memories. But now that’s all changed. I’m back, and there’s no more running. My hands are supposed to be my livelihood, but now they’re my curse. Levi’s reckless ways have landed him in a sticky situation, and his father has given me an offer I can’t refuse. One month, and all I have to do is put my hands on his body. Easier said than done. The problem is, even though I know it’s bound to bite me in the a**, I can’t bring myself to say no to the s.o.b. goodreads-badge-add-38px

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The stepbrother romance genre has been around long enough that I’m not sure it seems that taboo anymore. This book doesn’t feel taboo because Vista and Levi didn’t grow up together. The book begins four years after Levi left right after he and Vista had…hooked up. I would have liked a little more backstory for when they were first together. I think that would have added more feels and helped me connect with what these characters were feeling a little better.
This book did hold my attention very well for the most part. I found myself a little bored a few times, but nothing so bad that I couldn’t enjoy the book.
This is the first book that I have read from this author. I was very pleased with her writing style. I enjoyed this book enough to recommend it to other readers, especially those who are fans of the stepbrother genre and I have found a new to me author that I will be paying closer attention to. I will definitely be reading more of the books she already has out as well as looking forward to new ones.
