Not every relationship is about love.

The odometer on my sex life was stuck at zero the day my mother dragged home a husband I’d never met. Dale brought his two grown sons to help pack and move us into their house. Both were hard-bodied and handsome, but Caine didn’t speak to me. Colt, on the other hand, said crude stuff like, “Wanna ride with me? Then I’m gonna need gas or

Ok, let's take two brothers, Caine & Colt~ (different Mama's)
throw in a redheaded step sister, Shelby ~ (her mama married
their father) and we have ourselves one explosive relationship
and disaster waiting to happen!

What's with ass or gas? Just like it sounds. In those neck of
the woods it's either you pay with ass, (yep) or of course
you provide the gas! Sleazy you say? Yes, I agree but I loved
it and I think I'm going to hell for it!

Oh, these brothers
This book was awesome! I love those pseudo-taboo books with steps. This was so much more! It seems there will be a second book and I can't wait to read it!

For those of you who require it there is no HEA in this story as it is a cliffhanger. Hopefully the next story will have one. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Wow. I’m shocked at how much I really loved this one.

I think it’s hilarious that I can’t even write the title of this book in my review, but whatever. What i’d like to say is for having this title the book is surprisingly deep. This author says from the start it started off as satire, in combination of saying “kiss it” to people who tell authors “you can’t write that.” I think she did a perfect job. This is NOT a romance. It’s erotic new adult fiction. The story isn’t pretty. It’s sort of gritty

3.5 Stars!!!

It's not what you think. Great writing!!!!

This is a brand new author to me, I didn't know her writing style or her level of twistedness, I went in blind. After complaining about the title, I had to stick my foot in my mouth, because I was being judgemental. Yeah, I call myself out for this. I think I finally settled on 4 Stars. I had to dig deep in my soul and pretend that this really isn't the title. Let's pretend it's named Stepbrother something or another. Nope, that DOESN'T work

Wow, I need a beer! I did not see that coming. It wasn't a cliffy but the ending left me dazed. Bravo Eden. This book was taboo. Stepbrother romance on crack! I really liked it. It was a throwback to country simple living at it's unconventional best, the heroine Shelby learns life the hard way. She finds herself with a few months till graduation in a new step family with older step brothers in a rural country town. But she is not broken or weak and she finds her way.

The story centres around a young girl called Selby who's being bought up by her single mother. One day mum comes home announcing she's got married and there moving house right there and then. New dad has two sons...Colt and Caine who are older. Working hot males. There's an instant attrac

I think I’m in the minority on this one, but I did not like this book. Don’t get me wrong, I like the whole pseudo incest, banging the stepbrother thing, but there were several other aspects of this book that I absolutely hated.

Shelby’s mom gets remarried, and she and her mom move in with her step dad and super hot stepbrothers, Caine and Colt. They like fast cars and illegal drag racing and have a saying “gas or ass.” The whole premise of the book is not bad. You want a ride, you got to pay up

Let me start this off by saying I am totally an HEA girl, so I was a little bit scared when I read the intro that this story would have no HEA. At the same time, I was intrigued by her "kiss my ass" directed toward the judgy authors, lol. Gotta love her attitude!

So... I'd say the heroine was TSTL, but she was SO freaking young, and I honestly felt like she did everything she did in order to please her step-brothers. Initially at least. Some of her choices... wow. That is *not* the way I would ch

I really enjoyed Gas or Ass. I liked it's bluntness and the unexpectedness. I don't often read the authors note but did with this one and liked Edens words. I like honesty, no matter if it's brutal or blunt and found her straightness refreshing.

Gas or Ass us unlike any book I've read namely as not only don't you get a HEA but it's more blunt and to the point than you'll d or the. Can I also commend the car choices, my favourite car of all time is a Shelby gt500 (I even have a cat named Shelby)

I loved the raceing theme. I did not like how the young girls were treated. I loved Dale (the father), how his sons could have strayed so far is beyond me.
I'm hoping the next book will

This crazy-ass book...even the synopsis had me conflicted.

But in all seriousness, this is a dirty, taboo, fucked up, sometimes comical read. The characters are awful- Shelby is annoying as hell, Colt and Caine are straight-up assholes, the whole story is RIDICULOUS... but the author explains in the foreword that this story started off as a satire , so it makes sense

This book was not romantic or erotic and it was purely written to shock readers. It did not shock me, it was just really disappointing.

Let me start out with … Once upon a time there was a red headed country girl, her looney toon momma, her super sexy step-dad and two newly found – wickedly nice (but most definitely naughty) stepbrothers who were thrown together with the expectation that everyone will be nice.

See, I love a story with a wicked edge, full of angst and characters that can give me multiple holy sh** moments. My first impression(s) of the female lead (Shelby) is that she was having a hard time dealing with a fligh

I know what some of you will be thinking..oh great, another stepbrother book but you are so wrong!! There is so much more to this storyline than a young girl falling for a stepbrother. It's a deep read and boy does it make you feel. Nothing is as it seems until you get to the end of the book then it all falls into place.

For all of you Eden Connor fans and readers out there. In my opinion you will find that she has changed up her writing style in this book. As always her books are well written and thought out, graphic descriptions in her scenes and still writing on "taboo" subjects of content that most other writers are not willing to write about. And Mrs Connors writing is true to form with this book also but with a twist. While reading this book I was shocked, enticed, riveted and revolted, intrigued and intro ...more

I was so not expecting to love this as much as I did. First, the title... ugh. Then, there's the racing and the backwoods feel to it all, BUT that's kind of the point.
Let me say, if you're like me and usually skip the author's note at the beginning, don't this time. I don't know what possessed me to read it, but I'm so glad I did as it gave me a whole new perspective.
This had the mother of all twists that I did not see coming. Love when that happens but even without it, the sex scenes

Gas or Ass is a good read. Shelby is in high school who just wants to get through school and get away. Her mom comes home and out of the blue she has gotten married. Now all of a sudden she has a step dad (Dale) and two step brother (Colt and Caine). Shelby and her mom move in with them and that's when stuff gets a little crazy.

Colt and Caine are super hot and are into racing cars. At her new school she makes an instant friend with Caroline. I have never heard of the saying gas or ass and I fou
Holy Hell!! That was freaking HOT. What could possibly be sexier than two almost identical brothers that both want you? Umm, nothing. I don't think anything is sexier.

Now she's going to have to leave her home and her school, TODAY, to go live with her new stepfather. Then her new stepbrothers, Colt and Caine, get out of the truck to help pack. ...more

I found myself intrigued by the blurb of this one, definitely worth checking out. Then as I read the author's note I agreed with her message, but wondered if the story wasn't going to work for me.

I liked Shelby from the start, couldn't imagine growing up with that kind of mother, the one where you needed to be the adult. I was stunned that the mom managed to hide things for a month and then sprung the change on her like that. I sort of wanted to slap her.

It was here that Shelby went downhill for

This was an interesting book! Definitely a Taboo story line. What I liked the most was how is sucked me in and I couldn't believe the things that were going on. But the last chapters were running 100 miles an hour and I need to see how Shelby turns this all around! I am so rooting for her and I can not wait to see who she ends up with!!

And the so called "heroes" of this hot mess was no better... Ugh! I guess if I was into this type gene were the heroine is treated like crap and is humiliated, abused and pimp out for the pleasure of the heroes I would've probably like it because it was well written and a good (but f**k-up) storyline.

I sometimes, but rarely, have a time where a book leaves me not really knowing what to say or how to say it. This is definitely one of those moments.

Shelby is a girl on the cusp of womanhood. She hasn't had a really good role model in her mother, but she has basically been the center of her mother's world. The only time she doesn't get all of her mother's attention is when her mother has a man, but usually in those circumstances her mother is considerate of Shelby. Until Dale comes along, then

This book... 5 scorching, jaw dropping stars. It was a dirty, filthy hot mess and I loved it. I could see how the story line could be too much for some, but as the author says, "It's fiction, yo". Eden should really get a blue ribbon for her talents in writing hot sex. Great job on that. But this book is more than just taboo sex. It's about some pretty complex relationships and how the characters view and define themselves based on their past. It's actually pretty deep if you peel the layer of d ...more

Okay, first a warning. I only read this because book 2 was out and it was supposed to be a duology, but I crack open the author's note of book 2 to see that there is now *gasp* a book 3 that is not available, and has been pushed back a few times. *argh* I'm a binger and this does not sit well. Fortunately, book 1 does not really end in a cliffhanger, per se. It wraps up enough that you don't feel like you're bleeding on the floor. So I'll just wait until book

I think I'm just going to call this my "week of dark reads" because I am on a roll and this book is yet again, another OMG-what-did-I-just-read moment.
I got a kick out of the author's message to the readers at the beginning of the book because frankly she spoke the truth and so I went into this book just expecting to have a steamy hot and probably inappropriate good time, and wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did.

Intense and Hot

This book in one intense ride. The characters are well crafted, and the writing sucks you so deeply into a world with which so many of us have never come into contact that you start to feel that you have experienced it all yourself. While I felt throughout the story that Shelby was being misguided in her decisions, I couldn't help but take her passionate yet emotionally draining journey with her. Though the revelations and the behavior described in the end were horrifying to read,
