I’ve done pretty damn well in hiding my feelings for her over the years, but having Meghan under the same roof as me, and only feet from my bed makes it hard to control myself.

The truth is when it comes to Meghan I don’t want to practice self-control. I love her.


I’ve known him nearly my whole life. He’s cocky, gets under my skin, but is gorgeous and ca

I enjoyed this short, sweet and steamy little love story about a virgin hero and heroine and true everlasting love. Swoon and swoon. Author Jenika Snow once again turned up the heat in the fifth installment of the Real Man series. :D

This book was almost perfect it had all the elements of a GREAT READ but for me it was a failed alpha story.
They are "step-siblings" who have loved each other for so long. So when the heroine is finally living under his roof, what does he do?


I like it when it's the guy who takes a chance and tell her he loves her first. It's a small thing really but she is living in his place and he is always saying how he want her and lives for her but he does NOTHING to make their r
I remember reading this book very quickly and I somehow forgot to write a review for it, yeah, that's me...

Anyway, I liked the lightness of the story but what did bother me was that the hero thought how much he loved her and that he would show her but his actions were sadly not exactly the same as his thoughts. It took him way too long to finally find his courage and admit his feelings for her. I think it was she that pushed him to even make that step. So, yeah, did not like that. I like my her

love story about a stepbrother and a stepsister that waited for too long to share their feelings.

I enjoyed reading this one. The second one I liked from this series. Virgin is still at the top, for now.

The story is about Brendan, 22 and Meghan, 20.

Brendan and Meghan lived under the same roof for years and their feelings for each other had grown. They were step-siblings until their parents divorced.

Over the year, they stayed in contact. She was kicked out of her apartment and needed a place to stay. Brendan was her only option. Brendan welcomed her to his home. She moved in with him.

If you read these as comedies instead of pornos, they're actually quite good.

Just putting it out there that if you have to say that something you are doing might be considered creepy and stalkerish, then whatever you are doing is probably creepy and stalkerish.

This was whack but I didn't hate it the way I thought I would. Oh except for the sex. It's not sexxay at all.

Who am I? Why can't I stop reading these?


2 Stars?
So refreshing to read a story that is safe and sweet, never having to worry about cheating or ow/om drama. That's exactly what Jenika Snow is giving us with this series. Because that is what a real man is - faithful, loving, sheltering....just like these heroes!

I will say that although the couple had their sexy time, it was later in the story. It was not as steamy as some of the other books. They danced around their feelings, both fearing they would lose the other. In turn, wasting time.

So awful it became comedic.

Former step-siblings and current roomies have secretly been in love with each other for years. She's 20, he's 22. There's a slow build-up with a steamy scene and the epilogue takes place four years later. Super sweet characters, not much drama in the story and no conflict from their parents.

This one was a pretty decent quickie. Meghan and Brendan have known each other for quite some time but things had never graduated to a more intimate relationship.

I enjoyed both Meghan and Brendan but I didn't feel like we got to know them that well. Meghan was in school and Brendan had some kind of job though I'm not sure what and I’m fuzzy on the details of Meghan’s last living situation. A bit more time spent covering these characters could have helped my enjoyment, it doesn’t need to be anyth


Similar to AR's style, but the story is crafted a little better, and the loving scenes are longer with more detail.

This is your basic Hot, low angst, low conflict, alpha male insta love/lust type read.

There were a few words used that put me off like.."spunk" instead of seed... "pussy hole" yeah that was kinda bad, and the mentioning of her just coming off her period during an intmate scene was just plain wrong.

I felt waiting 4 years to be married was ridiculous and the reason for

Appreciate the honesty of this story. Very simply written, the romance is clear cut, no beating around the bush as soon as they knew what the felt for each other its like game on. Brandon and Meaghan sealed the deal on each other, ceased every moment to claim their life and destiny. As usual, Jenika...thanks and good job to you!
Good short

Short story of stepsiblings whose parents get divorced, but they have already started feeling attraction for each other. She ends up living with him while she is in college.
Nothing really happened. It's all nice and sweet. ...more

Step-siblings that became roomies.

Both virgins. Both secretly love each other.

Fast forward four years, engaged. Nine months after, Elizabeth Brianna was born.


Wow, only 25 words needed to sum up the story.

Amazing. Haha.

Syrupy sweet goodness...

I've become a bit addicted to the Real Man series. Sweet and sexy with so much sexual tension. A virgin hero and heroine and true everlasting love. Swoon and swoon.

Three stars and three wet panties.

By far my favorite in this series.
Brendan and Megan's sweet love story gave me everything I needed.
From ex step siblings to roommates, to stalking and later double v cards, from a couple in love to a adorable epilogue(s)- this was a quick saccharine read.
Super safe

The first half was promising, sweet!
But I didn't like that the H couldn't man up and declare his undying love to the h.
The h had more guts than him.
Not so alpha here.
Still it's worth reading because of the first half

Good quick read. Sexy. Hot.
A sweet short read and hero was a virgin. Swoon!

Love this quick but sexy series. Loved the H/h from beginning to end!
Meghan is feeling like her life has fallen apart which is why she is moving in with her stepbrother for the time being. She has long harbored a crush on him, while not related by blood she wishes he felt the same. Brendan has been in love with Meghan for years, he knows she is it for him and has to figure out a way to tell her though.

This was fun, I liked it a lot. Had a big surprise that I was not expecting and will not reveal. Another great read from this author.

Not my favorite but still a good book.
