Max and Chelsea couldn't deny their instant attraction, which meant trouble.
Their parents would never approve, but who said they had to know.
It all started with one kiss and a weekend alone…

Him: I never wanted a stepsister but my father dropped the news when I returned from vacation. I told him he was twenty years too late for the whole sibling thing. I hated the thought

ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review

For some reason, there has been a flooding of step-sibling romance. I understand the intrigue because of that whole forbidden romance aspect. I enjoy reading the forbidden romance trope but sadly Meeting the Step was not the book for me. This book was a bit rushed and short in developing proper character developments.

This is a hot take on the popular step-sibling romance and I definitely can't wait for more!

Chelsea and Max are about to become step-siblings, and are not happy about the surprise their parents threw at them. When Max returns from Christmas break with his mom and his dad drops the bomb that he's getting married he was shocked, but he was more shocked when he gets home and sees that his soon to be step mom and step sister have already moved in. Chelsea isn't happy with the situation either, and w

Something about these step sibling novels always intrigue me. I like the whole forbidden aspect of it and how they feel like they can't be together because their parents are together. I know it doesn't sound right nor do people think it's right for step siblings to get together. But in reality, they aren't anything to each other, so why can't they be together right!

Max knows his parents haven't gotten along with each other for a long time and i

“I had to get her out of my head. She was a forbidden fruit, one that I wasn’t supposed to touch, but now that I had, I wanted all of her. I wanted to taste her, to have her, and somehow I knew it was only a matter of time before I did.”

4 Stars. Yes another step sibling book. Although it did seem slightly rushed, it was a good read. I enjoyed it, the scenes were interesting and exciting. Not at all disappointed by this book.

Meeting the Step by Ash Adams is a step-brother romance that will melt your socks off.

Max is a guy who is happy with his life exactly as it is. Well, aside from the recently divorced parents. Oh, and the new soon-to-be step-mom and step-sister. So he's really only ahppy with his friends and the women he gets freaky with.

Chelsea is not happy. She hates the new home in the suburbs and the new almost step-brother. Escpecially when he rescues her from her boyfriend of four years and his drunken an

3* read.
I'm not quite sure how I feel about this book. I love forbidden romances and stepbrothers are one of my favorite forbidden story but this one I just couldn't really connect with. It started out so slow but yet seemed rushed as well so I couldn't connect with the characters at all till towards the end where I did start to get more of a connection. Like I say its a hard review for me because it is a short story and part of a ser

I have noticed that there has been a lot of step-romance lately, i.e. romance stories about step siblings. Is it kinda weird, on an "ew" level? Perhaps, and I guess it depends on the relationship f the siblings. Here, in Ash Adams 'Meeting The Step,' it's not as icky: the steps are teenage characters who just meet for the first time after the parents have a whirlwind romance. But it turns sexual quick, although that may depend on your definition of sexual

A Solid Four Star Read
This is a quick enjoyable read, perfect for your lunch break or any time when you're looking for a quick read. Both of the main characters in this story have a big thing in common, they do not want a step-family. The only problem with that is their parents are getting married. When the two end up with time together on their hands though, that's when the story really takes off. It is a bit of a slow starter, but is written so well that you just want t keep going, and it is w

I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This book starts out with Max finding out he's dad is going to remarry and that he will be gaining a step sister. He is 22 and doesn't want a sibling. Chelsea feels the same way about her mother remarrying. The night they meet Max saves her from a scary situation. Both of them instantly feel a connection. Where will this go, will they go for it or will they let it go? I am looking forward to the next book so we can see how things develop betwee

I was provided an ARC for my honest review.

With all of the step brother romances that are out right now, I was hoping to find one that stood out above the rest. I loved the synopsis of Meeting the Step, the story of Max and Chelsea drew my attention. I did enjoy this story, I liked, but didn't love. I was able to read it all in one sitting, as it did keep my interest. Toward the middle of the book it felt really rushed, and it ended in a cliffy. I will be reading book #2, I want to know what ha

This book was great, it is very short though, so I was left feeling like I was left hanging. It doesn't quite end on a cliffie per se as you still have so far to go with them so it doesn't hit like a lot of cliffies do. So far I love Prince Charming and thing this story will be amazing when it's all said and done. Can't wait to see where their journey's take them.

3.5 Crazy Ass Stars!!!

This was a good quick read that leaves you wanting more. It started a bit slow for me and I really didn't connect with the characters until about 3/4 of the way through. Once things started up between Chelsea and Max, I was intrigued. I am interested in reading the next installment to see where their story leads.

Prince Charming and the Forbidden Fruit

I was worried when I first started the book because by the first couple of pages I was shaking my head; however Ash Adams quickly drew me in and I had to read more. She did a great job laying the ground work for the next book in this series! I was impressed with this short read and am interested in where she will take this story.
Liked the fact that they didn't just start having sex within 5 minutes and all of a sudden she wants to be pregnant with his baby. Seems like this one will have at least a little bit more of a story-line. Also liked the fact that they had met before - at least momentarily. I was going to read the next one right away, but apparently it isn't out yet.
