This a step sibling/enemy to lovers book. It was the story of Logan and Leah and you get to see how they were as teens and then 10 years will pass and you will be able to see how they are as adults and if they have changed from how they were as kids. It was a bit of slow burn but when it finally happened, it was worth the wait. The story was good, the characters were realistic and the chemistry between them was so believable. It was an overall good read.

I've read MOST of her other books. Always enjoy a good story. This one had that with an extra juicy plot twist of step-siblings. Take one yummy slightly older step brother. Add in one slightly younger, read headed step sister, mix well. Lol. Makes for a yummy book! Cept after reading about all of Anna's do I want chocolate lol. Read the book. You'll understand! ...more

I like this sexy love story. I loved Logan’s POV. Leah was assertive and represented the real woman well. I really disliked how the parents treated their kids. I really agreed with Logan in what he told his mom before he left town. I loved her best friend. I recommend this story

Logan and Leah have no choice but to learn to get along after their parent’s marry each other. With Leah’s crush as her new stepbrother, she thinks they will be friends. What she didn’t expect were the teasing & mean pranks. Even though he hurt her feelings & made her cry enough times, she still missed him when he went away to college. Writing letters to him during holidays became a ritual for her, until years later she decides to not send one. After all, he never sent any replies or acknowledge ...more

This book was a slow burn. Logan's mother marries Leah's father. Logan and Leah don't get along - he teases her incessantly, and she smiles through most of it. He leaves for college in Boston, and stays to build his career there, but rarely comes home to visit. He surprises everyone by showing up for their parents' anniversary party, and he and Leah get together just once. He goofs up, though, and makes like this means nothing. After this, they only have contact when they are at the parents' hom ...more

This was an interesting take on the stepbrother romance genre and takes you all the way through Leah and Logan's relationship. It did have some predictable moments, but I like WHY Logan disliked Leah in the first place and how that was extremely easy to see.

There is major tension between these two characters and I liked how everything was spread out and not told super fast, but not a weird spread out, it was all extremely organic. The only thing I would have liked to have seen is Logan makes som

Tender and very moving
This is a very good simple romance that is slightly cruel between the heroes at the beginning, but still very moving because of Logan's reactions to a Leah who is always sweet.
It's a rather strange beginning between a young man, Logan, who refuses to try to seduce the girl he loves, Leah, because his mother marries her father. Logan is infamous with her before slightly giving in and disappearing from her life for 10 years, leaving her alone with her unfulfilled feelings. Le

Hot! I've volunteered to review this book for United Indie Book Blog. I love reading S. L. Sterling books. This Logan and Leah story. Logan and Leah knew each other in high school. But when Logan's mother marries Leah's father, things get a different twist to Logan and Leah's story. I had a hard time putting this one down to go to sleep. I had to finally force myself to put it down. Their chemistry was explosive. This story has heat, great characters, and a really good storyline. There is hatred ...more

I loved the story of Leah and Logan. They were brought together as teenagers when their parents fell in love and married. Secretly they had a crush on each but to cover it up Logan decided to treat Leah as badly as he could so they spent years being at odd with one another. Years later when they are both at home for their parents anniversary they end up sleeping together but the following morning Logan tells her it was just a fling and nothing more. Following their journey was well worth reading ...more

What a great story with all the feels! Leah and Logan meet as teenagers and there is instant attraction but then their parents start dating each other. The tension between them is thick and having to live in the same house doesn't help. Their story is well written, full of emotion and some steam that spans years before they get their HEA.

A definite 5 star read! I was hooked from the very first page. So many twist and turns, emotions that wrenched my heart strings, pranks that made me laugh out loud, intriguing characters, and off the charts chemistry. The story is well written, flows smoothly, and is a fast pace page turner. Strongly recommend!

I was skeptical about this book at first. The cover grabbed me then the blurb. I figured I had two weeks to write a review so I could take my time if necessary. Fast forward a few hours later and I finished the book. This was my first time with this author and I seriously couldn’t put it down! I loved Logan and Leah’s story. There was sizzling chemistry from beginning to end along with some unexpected twists that had me ferociously turning pages

This is the 4th book I've read written by S.L. Sterling; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

OMG!! This book is AMAZING!! The drama and turmoil the characters go threw feels so real that you have to know what will happen next. Logan goes through so much trouble to try and push Leah away. Some of his pranks are down right mean. But Leah is a strong girl. You can't help feel for her. Definitely a must read! ...more

I think this was my first "hot stepbrother" book and I really enjoyed it. Logan was definitely a jerk but Leah was pretty much a doormat -although it was undeserved- in the beginning. I liked that she finally started to give some of it back to Logan. Their chemistry was explosive, but it had always been, even when it was being hidden. The tension was thrilling. ...more

I really enjoyed this story and it flowed well. It was a perfect forbidden stepbrother/enemy to lovers romance and captured my attention from the beginning. The storyline is flawless, had depth, and was very relatable. The chemistry between Leah and Logan is undeniable and electric and I loved them together. Overall this was a fantastic read and a definite must read.

I was surprised at how much I loved this story. Logan & Leah so good together yet they are so different. They are brought together by their parents circumstances. I really liked the story and how well it was written with fun, sexy, and enjoyable characters. A new author for me and I will definitely be reading more!

This is a forbidden lust that spans many years.

It is sexy yet heartbreaking at times. I didn't know how it was all going to work out but I am a sucker for love. Even forbidden love.

Really good enemies to lovers/step-siblings romance. This was a super read with plenty of drama and plenty of heat between Logan and Leah. I have to admit I did not like him much to begin with I know he was trying to push her away but he was way to mean to her but as the book went on I really did like him This was a really enjoyable book

This is a well written taboo romance with strong characters in Leah and Logan. The author describes the scenes in detail and tells the story in the dual POV which I always enjoy. There's drama,sexual tension and tons of steam. I enjoyed reading their story.

Enemies to lovers/ step-siblings romance. Steamy read, somewhat predictable but enjoyable. It's developed into a years span since they met until they're finally together.
