Blurb: Piper Winchester is fresh out of college. With only three weeks until her father remarries and five weeks until her first business venture launches, she’s got her hands full. She certainly doesn’t need any distractions to get in the way of building the future her father’s always wanted for her. But when a familiar boy with bright green eyes walks back into her life, she’s thrown for a loop.
Four years ago, Chase MacKenzie left for college without looking back. He didn’t mean to disturb the peace then, and he definitely doesn’t want to do that now. Once he lays his eyes on Piper again, there’s no way he can leave without fixing what went wrong in the past. Although she’s more determined than ever to push him away, he still manages to get under her skin. Regardless of what happens between them, there’s one thing that will always be standing in their way…
He’s about to become her stepbrother.
I do love me some step love! This one was different in the fact that the male MC was NOT an alpha, which was lovely. He was a bit of a beta boy. And while this story had the ‘traditional’ sex scenes, it was tempered with deep emotion.
One of my favorite things about this story is that they were friends in the beginning, not enemies. This really stood out because anyone who reads these types of stories knows they are mostly enemies to lovers.
I also like how the parents were more present in this book. Being aware and involved in the family. Plus they were both out of the house and living on their own. These may seem like little nuances but added all up helped to create a vibrant background that really sucked me in.
This was a quick read that I really enjoyed.
