“Standing pressed up against the wall, my heart had stopped when i’d seen him enter the cage. He looked so menacing and powerful, all male. All that energy and aggression, raw passion and prowess, my breathing picked up the second I saw him. He’d taken off his sweatshirt, revealing his rippling muscles and tattoos.”

5 off limits stars!! I’ve read my fair share of stepbrother books, but I think this may be one of my favorites!! So hot!!

Wow, the angst and intense attraction between Tuck and Jewel i

Holy Hot sinful and insanely sexy read...Off Limits is a ball of pure, delicious sin wrapped in an exquisite story that left me breathless and wanting more.
I LOVED these characters and the build up between them, the angst literally burned through the pages and sizzled through me.
I seem to have an addiction to fighter books at the minute and with the added tantalising taboo story line that this story offers I was hooked. I straight up devoured this book like Tuck devours Jewel..HARD!

3.5 stars!!

”You kill me,” I murmured.
“I think you mean crush.” He kissed me full on the lips.
“Crush?” I asked when I could.
“Because I’m the Crusher. In and out of the cage, baby.” He flexed his bicep at me and flashed me a cocky grin.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review for my co-owned blog United by Books.

Callie has produced a book that is so hot it will leave your knickers on fire and in need of extinguishing! And I need to find me a Tuck STAT!

This for me was my first step into the world of MMA books and what a way to break my virginity (very apt!). I have to say Callie's book left me a little in love with MMA and a whole lot know love with her writing and story telling! I was hooked as soon as I entered her

4 stars... and I really don't like step brother romances. That says something!

So, I don't get the whole step brother craze. I'm not judging; to each their own. I have read very few step brother romances, and that was before they were labeled in that way. Because of that, I have no idea why I picked this book up. Someone on a book blog facebook group thingy posted about it. For whatever reason I thought I'd give it a TRY. I really didn't expect to finish it.

I got hooked. The reason I got hooked?

Four stars for Tuck and Jewel!

I was expecting a quick read with this one but that was the opposite of what I got! Tuck and Jewel are new step siblings but the first time they kiss they have no idea! They're both in college and polar opposites when it comes to personality. Being irritated with their parents flighty decisions and confusion with each other, they try to stay far away.
Life it seems has different plans for them. Jewel gets her dream internship in LA and when she arrives at Tuck's fa

Can't say I blame Jewel I wouldn't pass up seeing Tuck fight either, “no, wait.” Now I did reach out and touch him, on his bicep, my hand around his hard muscle. He looked down at it, instantly hyper aware of our physical contact. “I want to go,” I insisted. “Do you have a ticket?” When he wants to be Tuck can be a very observing man, "what are you wearing?" Tuck looked at me like he wanted to rip my dress off with his teeth. My breathing quickened and my chest rose and fell under his hungry gaz ...more

Off Limits is the first book by Callie Harper that I have read. I was attracted to this book because of the cover and the fact that it was a MMA fighter story. I was also drawn to the story because of it's taboo plot. I am sucker for the step sibling storyline!!

I have to be honest and say I enjoyed this book but I had a hard time connecting with the characters, which in turn made some aspects of the story har

Whoa! This book was H.O.T! Damn...Damn...Damn! I am still squirming in my seat after reading those super steamy intimate scenes. This is definitely one of the sexiest books I have read in a long time. Tuck is one filthy mouthed, hunk of alpha man meat! Holy cow, the angst between Tuck and Jewel is palpable and their chemistry is off the charts. I truly enjoyed their forbidden love story. I love fighter books, and this one did not disappoint! I definitely recommend!

What can I say, "Off-Limits" definitely has a few of my favorite ingredients. It has a deliciously naughty and sexy as f*ck man that has a tendency to lean towards dominant sex. Not to mention said man is a rough and raw MMA cage fighter. Add in the devastating hot as Hell meet/cute and you have yourself a recipe for a good read. Toss the fact in that their parents are married and you find out after a sizzling kiss that was about to lead to a quick fast f*ck, then you

Going into Off Limits I didn't read on the cover that this was a step-brother romance... I have nothing against step-brother books, it's just that there are a lot around at the minute that all have the same kind of story and plot...

But let me tell you now Off Limits is so much more than your typical step-brother book... it is so different it should have its own genre...

This is a Stepbrother romance I could get into! As this was maybe my second or third stepbrother romance...I wasn't completely sold on the whole "stepbrother" thing. Not usually my thing, but hey I don't like to judge! I have read others where it was just weird and I had to mentally remind myself that they were not blood related! Not here!

Tuck and Jewel had no idea they were about to be introduced to one another as the adult children of their dating parents. But before this even happens Tuck, t

Im not a huge fan of the step-brother reads but his one is pretty much a keeper because dude is an MMA FIGHTER … whoop whoop! I also was pleasantly surprised as I have read a few, that this story line was somewhat different than the others. Nice job Callie!

Loved this book! I loved how they didn't just fall immediately in love. I like when a book has a build up in the characters relationship and Callie did a wonderful job doing just that. This book was highly entertaining. I loved the banter between the two main characters. I definitely recommend this book.

Jewel has been living her life the opposite of her mother. Her worst fear is becoming like her and she makes the choice to be super responsible to the point where she has no life really besides

Some spoilers ahead....

I am always leery about books that deal with step-brothers and really over the top whorish men. But I am extremely glad that I made myself read this. I swear, Callie Harper almost had me creaming in my jeans at work. I literally thought I was going to orgasm while reading. I have to stop and walk away at one point...WHEW. I really liked both characters. Tuck wanted to be nothing like his father but realized he was going in that same direction. It took Jewel telling him how

Give me a book about a man that is good with his hands and you will be my friend forever – Callie Harper, pleased to meet you!
I love the whole MMA fight scene scenario and with Tuck and Jewel I was onto a winner right off the bat.
I found the pair of them completely impossible not to fall in love with they had a super story and they garnered my enthusiasm to the point where all else was side lined completely – I just had to find out how things were going to end.
They were both brilliant characters

Who knew I'd enjoy stepbrother romances this much???

I REALLY enjoyed this book. I mean, what's not to love? It's about a super sexy bad boy MMA fighting stepbrother. Enough said.

From the moment Tuck and Jewel meet, it's definitely lust at first sight. But the flames quickly get extinguished when the pair are thrown together as their new "family" starts to take shape. Seeing a different side of each other as time goes on, now they can't stand each other, and avoidance becomes the norm.

This was a very good debut novel by Callie Harper.

In the beginning of this book I thought Tuck was going to be a complete Sh!t but I have to say he changed my mind pretty quickly. Although he wound Jewel up I loved him and he burrowed his way into my heart.

I enjoyed the fact there was quite a bit of buildup to their love story. It wasn’t insta love and that worked well with this story.

I hated how Tuck’s father treated both him and Jewel, he was a horrible man and i wanted to jump int

When they meet sparks fly and they a drawn to each other, then the bottom drops... They meets their parents as they announce they are getting married. Dam talk about first encounters!!!

I received an ARC of Off Limits in exchange for an honest review.

WOW! I loved it!

From the very first page this book had me hooked, and it did not let me go untilI finished at 1am.
The story is well written and the characters are complex and loveable. I love Tuck's arrogance and dirty mouth, and Jewel's quite insecurities.
The sexual tension in this book is tangible. I wanted to scream at them to get themselves together already!

This was a steamy read!! Tuck's dirty mouth is a panty-melter.

I love MMA books, and this one did not disappoint! I loved the build-up between Tuck and Jewel. Hell, I loved Tuck & Jewel! From the minute they meet, their chemistry is off-the-charts crazy, and their banter was very entertaining.

There were a few spelling errors, but overall a good story. I definitely recommend! This is a great first effort.

I am usually not a fan of step brother romances but I absolutely loved this one. From the very start these characters have a fierce attraction to each other. Once they learn about their parents they both have to fight the sexual tension pulsing between them. I can't wait to see see more from this author
