Tempted A Stepbrother Romance by J.L. Ostle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Kacey is in her senior year of High School with six months before she graduates. Circumstances beyond her control, she is shipped off to her father's house to finish school there. This in itself would be hard, exams in a new school and all, but she hasn't spoken to her dad in 6 years, let alone met his new wife and son. She is literally speechless when she meets Aiden - the step brother. It's an instant attraction for both of them.
The best way to counteract his attraction to his step sister - is to be the annoying step brother and pester her so that she won't look at him with lust in her eyes. This only works for a short time, but in between, Kacey goes through an ordeal that brings out the best of Aidan. He is totally supportive and protective of her.
On the whole, I enjoyed this story line. I am always happy to read a step brother romance. Although, there were parts of this book that had me shaking my head. This story needed more depth and growth to make it a great book. I know it was set in a high school, but the whole thing lacked maturity. For example, if you are going to add a court scene, you need to research about it, to know the terms and procedures, otherwise it feels inaccurate to those that do know.
There is a cliffhanger at the end, and it won't be until Fall 2016 before there will be any resolution.
