Since my first Stoni Alexander book, The Mitus Touch, I have grown to appreciate this author. Interestingly enough, Beautiful Stepbrother has light connections to the former book. The story follows Savannah and Zander. Zander is the CEO of his land development company, and his life is controlled. It is all about work and very little fun. Any romantic encounters are one-night stands that end quickly as his life is all about his business. One day, Zander rescues Savannah when her car battery dies, ...more

Stoni has brought her amazing story telling to us once again. However this story is not part of her Touch Series.

This is a departure from the group of friends’ story she tells in the Touch series. This one is a hot of late sub-genre about family love stories. Those between step siblings. I like that in this one, there is not connecting family left, ie: the father/stepfather. It makes the story less complicated and purely about Zan

Zander King was the “love-em & leave-em” playboy working through a rough patch in his land developing company. With no business deals coming through and a monthly loan looming in the not-so-far distance, Zander was up against a wall. When he discovers that one of his floundering business deals had to do with his detached father, his focus comes to a stand-still.

“Starry Cove had the potential of becoming a vacationer’s paradise.” (11)

Then his father dies, sending him back home to Starry Cove.

Stilted, unnatural dichotomy between step-siblings forced together by a shared parent.

Boring storyline - Zander's dad, once married to Savannah's mother, dies, leaving his considerable assets (house, a hundred acres of prime, undeveloped property, a trust fund) in joint ownership to both Zander and Savannah. In the first place, it's extremely unlikely such events (a stepchild remaining close beyond divorce, or equally inheriting with the natural child, as well as given power over a biological so

Will Savannah and Zander get past their taboo relationship?
This is my 2nd book by Stoni and I love an author who writes in dual point of view. Zander is in a bit of a financial crisis with his company when he stops to help Savannah jump her car when it stalled on the roadway. Zander felt there was something about her that seemed familiar but brushed it off. Savannah is upset to hear that her family member passed before she made it to the hospital. Fast forward to Zander’s father’s will reading a

Stoni knows how to grab the reader and bring them ALL.THE.FEELS. I was very quickly lost in Zander's and Savannah's plight. Zander and Savannah haven't seen each other in years. While they aren't related and have no current family ties, they once knew each other when they did. Something like that was hard to overcome. They have both grown up and had difficult childhoods, for various reasons, but they don't know the adult version of who they have become. So while there is a history, they learn ne ...more

As always Stoni Alexander knows how to hook you from the beginning. Beautiful Stepbrother is a very well written book that draws you in and makes you not want to put the book down until the very end. Stoni has a way of bringing her characters and the surroundings to life. They infinite ways she describes everything makes you feel as if you are in the story with these characters. But she also knows how to do it without boring you with mundane details.

This isn't the same old stepbrother trope. It's more. Zander and Savannah's parents married years ago but then divorced. Her mother is something else and I didn't care much for her at all. It's hard to believe that Savannah came from that woman.

When Zander and Savannah get to know each other as adults they're at different ends of the spectrum about the will of Zander's father. Zander's upbringing was different than Savannah's and my heart hurt for him.

Will one of them get what they want and wil

I am volunteering to leave a review of this ARC book. Step brother and sister, but they haven't seen each other in so long, they don't even recognize one another when he helps her with his car. Zander's father put a road block in Zander's real estate development plans, when he was alive, and now via Savannah, the step sister. They have more than one problem, each on their own, and now together. They're wildly attracted to one another. Will they act on the attraction? What about their businesses? ...more

Life Can Be Real and Complicated

A perfect read by my all time favourite author Stoni Alexander who puts a different, and superbly written spin on a ‘stepbrother’ trope. Stoni puts the magic of finding the middle ground in this complicated relationship around Zander and Savannah’s story and of how opposites can and do attract, with a white hot, slow burn of an oh so romantic, beautiful, taboo storyline magnificently. A book I loved from start to finish cuddled up in my soft winter blanket, who ne

Compelling and much more than a simple romance!
Ms. Alexander has managed putting together a story that reflects not only the attraction between Savannah and Zander but also the consideration and respect they share. Never having known each other growing up, they meet when they go for the reading of their father/stepfather’s will. It’s fascinating to watch how effortlessly she combines their opposite viewpoints into one that mutually reflects their ideas. Terrific characters and storyline are brou

Compelling and so very steamy

Beautiful Stepbrother by Stoni Alexander is a very well written book. This book captured my heart and mind with its wonderful characters and intriguing storyline. I loved the range of emotions Savannah and Zander go through. Between that and the setting descriptions, Stoni brought these characters, the smoking hot chemistry, their lives and circumstances to life creating an awesome page turner.
I read an ARC of this book and voluntarily share my review.

Very sweet romance with nice erotica but not overly much. Zander is a beautiful man who is a workaholic who is obsessed with his business. Savannah is his ex-stepsister whom he hasn't seen for seventeen years. They have been named co-owners of his father's properties in his will. They are quite attached to each other but fear their relationship would be somewhat incestuous. The story is lovely with some graphic loving sex scenes. I really enjoyed this book as well as Ms Alexander's other books a ...more

Savannah is not the same girl she was when she her mom was married to Zander's father. Heck he doesn't even cross her mind anymore. That is until his dad dies and she is called to the reading of the will. She never guesses what the will says or how this affects Zander.
Zander is going to lose it all if something doesn't happen quick. He does not need any distractions. He just needs to focus on his business.
He dad however puts the biggest distraction in his way Savannah.

This was a fun fast read

I was hooked on Stoni Alexander books from the very first one, and this book is no different. The story draws you in from the very first page. I started
the book and could not put it down until I was done. The sexual tension between Savannah and Zander burns the pages. Some people might consider this a
taboo romance; it is not. No blood relations were used in the writing of this book. It is steamy fun without the guilt.

Beautiful Stepbrother is a really sweet, passion filled romance about former steps that reconnect and fall in love. Zander and Savannah are likable characters who try to fight their feelings for each other but they just make each other so darn happy they can't resist! I loved them. This is my first read by this author and I look forward to reading more. I enjoyed this story very much.

I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reader copy of this book.

Three and a half stars

I like this taboo trope but this book could've been better. He characters were a little inconsistent. The book description is not at all what the book is about. I thought they'd be new adult but they were in their mid 30s so if you like the taboo romance this doesn't really pack a punch at all. They hadn't seen each other in 17 years so it was just like a regular erotic novel.

Beautiful Stepbrother by Stoni Alexander is a story of overcoming expectations, confronting desires, and unexpected discoveries. What happens when you fall for the one person you’re not supposed to? This story deals with the unexpected desires that unfold when you fall for your stepbrother. While this trope isn’t one I typically read, I’m glad I read it. I was impressed at how Stoni navigated around the sensitivity aspect of the attraction, desire, and romance in this trope.

Zander and Savannah were fantastic characters and were really interesting as they both had different outlooks on life. Being step siblings a relationship is taboo. Lots of chemistry and I loved how each ends up being who and what the other needs. This was a wonderful story and had such great characters. I loved it!! I am voluntarily reviewing an arc.

Stoni Alexander is a new to me author and I loved this book. She writes great characters and weaves realism into her stories.
Zander and Savannah's story begins in the most unusual ways, a car broke down and a hero offering a boost and the story evolves perfectly from there. And builds honestly and with truth from there.
I will definitely be reading more from this author!

Great read. When a writer can grab my attention and keep it from the first page particularly important in short books, I consider this author damn great. Which is exactly what this book did. I loved this book with an original storyline, great characters and steamy hot sex scenes. Read it in one sitting!

Strong attraction, but slow seduction
3,5 I found this romance too cute and tender for my taste, and a little predictable. The bare scenes are very well described, but it's the rest that seemed to me lacking rhythm.

I really liked this steamy step sibling read. The story is fast-paced with plenty of drama and lots of steam. Zander has plans for a land development but learns he must get his stepsister to agree. As they spend time together, sparks fly. Fun and entertaining. A good read.
