Keď sa k nám v poslednom ročníku strednej nasťahoval môj nevlastný brat Elec, netušila som, že je až taký arogantný kretén. Štvalo ma, že si na mne vylieva zlosť pre otca. Štvalo ma, že si k nám vodí dievčatá. Ale najviac ma štvalo, že v jeho prítomnosti sa mi zakaždým rozbúšilo srdce.
Spočiatku som to pripisovala jeho tetovaniam a príťažlivým črtám, ale v jednu noc nastal

Where to start?

I am always intrigued with books dealing with taboo topics (or in this case pseudo-taboo), especially incestuous relationships. At first I crossed this book from my TBR shelf because it seemed like a trashy romance. But then all this five stars reviews started popping out all over the Goodreads. So, I gave in to the temptation. And once again, I should have stick to the original plan.

The story.


The horror! My eyes!!! What is this shit???

WOW!! I was hooked on this book from the moment I started it and I could not put it down until the end!! An angsty, unconventional love story and such a roller coaster! It was absolutely unputdownable.

When Greta's stepbrother came to live with them during her senior year, she never expected him to be such a jerk, and she certainly never expected to feel so drawn to him. He was stunning. Gorgeous. Hot. Tattooed and pierced (yes, there!!) with bad

Im not going to lie the title and the cover of this book drew me right in and made me one click the minute it went live. Ive never read this author and I wasnt sure what the book was about (besides a stepbrother/stepsister) but I knew I had to read it. I LOVE forbidden love stories so the title alone drew me in. Stepbrother Dearest was different that I expected. It was a little young for a lack of a better word, at the beginning. Then it got a little sweet and sexy. The last half was

To tell you the truth, I was not going to write a review for this book, because I really dont have anything positive to say about it. There are many things that are wrong with this book, but Ill just address two.

First would be the writing. It was juvenile! Especially in the first part. The plot was repetitive: they flirt, they fight, he insults her, she runs to him like a love-struck puppy. This book was trite, cliché and juvenile. Did I already say that? Ah, I dont care, because this book
I loved this book! I had expected the story to be kind of hard to get into after reading many reviews that said it got off to a slow start. That was not my experience at all. The story of Elec and Greta captivated me from page one. I devoured this book!

Elec and Greta's story was full of passion, forbidden desire and angst. Reading their story took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. I laughed, cried and smiled.

After a brief, but intense, fling, Elec disappears from Greta's life for years.

This is definitely a hit or miss type story. I totally get friends issues like Elecs pov later on or that hes kind of young to be that skilled in the bedroom and so on and so forth. For me, it was perfectly angsty and Elec was panty dropping hot and I truly fell for him while Greta was really likable and for me thats a total win win.

Although Stepbrother Dearest had a sad vibe I couldn't explain in the beginning, now that I've read the whole story I can say with all of my heart, that it is amazing. Filled with many funny moments, interesting characters and a much deeper "meaning" than I thought it would have.

Stepbrother Dearest was a fast-paced, angsty ride. When Greata's new stepbrother moves in, he is not want she expected. Elec and his father have a difficult relationship. The last thing he wants to do is move in with him and his new family, but with his mother going out to the country for a year and he is out of options. Elec is rude, confrontational, and Greta is extremely attracted to him.

Was it the title, the hype, or me?

This one was just okay to me. I went into thinking I would love this one. I mean I love forbidden love, sneaking around, hot taboo sex, but that isn't what we get here.

The story starts with Elec coming to live with his father and his new family. Greta is excited to meet Elec, and Elec is a complete dick to her. He is miserable in Boston, hates his father and decides being an ass to Greta will make things better for him.

This was an absolutely fantastic read. I loved the way this story developed, progressing the characters love story from teenagers and then seven years later as adults. I fell more and more in love with this couple with each and every page. Their story is sweet, funny, hot and very intense.

Elec and Greta take us on an emotional roller coaster that begins when they meet as teens and share a reluctant but very present connection. A connection that is technically forbidden as they are step siblings. The tension between them is palatable, mounting, and full of sensual moments.

Greta lives with her mother and stepfather. One day her stepbrother moves in temporarily with them and although she had been excited to meet him, he turns out to be an ass. The worst is that she's attracted to him. Even worse, the moment they will get close to each other, his time will be up and he will have to leave. Since he doesn't seem to have the best relationship with his father, the odds are against them.

"Keep the change, or rather, change into these. I'm guessing your current ones are a little wet."

I have to be honest, I didn't really enjoy the first half of this book at first. I was not a fan of Elec. I thought he was an cocky ass (and not the good kind) and didn't really see what Greta saw in him, other than a hot body. I just couldn't connect with him at all. I hated the way he treated Greta, it just didn't seem like he had a purpose to be so mean to her.

Living with him in such close quarters proves quite the challenge, Elec is a man-whoring, smoking (in more ways that one), tatted asshole that just loves to get under her

I picked up Stepbrother Dearest for two reasons, one, its by Ward and two, hello, storyline! Stepbrother and stepsister, oh you know its going to be good.


If you are looking for an emotional, intense, roller coaster read, then this one is for you. If you are looking for a jerk of a Hero you want to hate and love, then Elec is for you.


To sum it up, Elec moves in with Greta to live with her and the family for a year. Elec is mean, says off handed

"Why are you looking at me like that?
Like what?
Like youre trying to remember what I looked like the other nightlike youd rather have me for dinner. He snickered. And why are you winking at me?

Stepbrother Dearest certainly had my attention in this first half. The second half became draggy and it was repeating the first half. But the last two chapters was sweet!
This book is all about that stepbrother - he is such a bad boy, tattooed and pierced.

Hero YUMMY, my type of hero!
