Intended for mature audiences only 

I met him before I knew. 

I loved him before I knew. 

I didn’t know he was my stepbrother when I fell for Bladen. I fell for a mystery guy who I spent a long, amazing weekend with. Then he got up and left me, without even a goodbye. I was nothing more than a bit of fun. 

He broke my heart. 

didn't see him again. 

Until my mom and her new husband, Jack, decide to to take us all on a family vacation to the lake so I can meet my new stepbrothers for the first time. 

I don’t see it coming. 

When he gets out of that car, my world stops. My passionate lover is…my stepbrother. 

He isn't the same man. He’s a prick and he makes sure I know it. 

I’m not the same woman. I’m in love with him and I very much plan to make sure he knows it. 

He won’t make my life easy. I won't give up.

You may have noticed quite a few "STEP-romance" books floating around lately.
 I bet you're thinking "meh they're probably all the same". I can assure you...THIS IS NOT the same.
This is a book that Bella had worked on a while back and thankfully decided to release.
Needless to say I couldnt wait to get my hands on it!
It was flipping brilliant!
Bladen & Aria's story commences long before their parents relationship is even conceived.
One wild weekend, throwing caution to the wind they get together. Neither of them knowing the others name. Neither of them caring....but by the end of that weekend they had realised that there was something special there, something deeper than just a carnal connection, leaving Aria pining for her mystery man.
The serendipitous sequence of events that take place following  will have you clutching your kindle/book and screaming "NO WAY!!!"
Blade's level of alpha hotness is off the charts and Aria is just as loveable as she is strong.
The secondary characters are just as appealing and all worthy of their own books.
I dont need to tell you how great Bella's books are. You know you're always going to get a solid, hot angsty read with a very gratifying ending. I FLOVED this book!
5 HOT STARS!!!!!
