When Mom told me she was getting married again, I hated the idea of moving in with a strange man. Then I met muscular biker Gage, and I decided I liked him after all.

Way too much, actually.

With his big, clever hands, stormy eyes and strong, protective body, he keeps me safe from the vicious fights Mom

This author is honestly becoming a one click for me, she’s keeping me going waiting for Alexa Riley to come back. Especially as Amazon banned it for what I have no idea.

When Hallow’s mum married Gage four years ago she wasn’t exactly happy about but as the years have passed she’s grown to love him, he protects her from her mothers verbal tongue lashes on a daily basis so when she announces she’s leaving Hallow isn’t what you’d call sad. But now it’s just the two of them can she continue to pret

3.5 stars ~ Sara

This book had me wishing it wasn’t so short. I would have enjoyed getting to know the characters a bit more. It was definitely a hot one, in the beginning, I had mixed feelings about their relationship but once it got to the end I was all for it. The author didn’t skip any dirty details. It was a short but hot read.

Forbidden & Naughty

You better be ok with the forbidden, Insta love, steam that the title of this book suggests. It's a very quick read filled from the front to back with hotness and an HEA.
HANNAH (Books, Films, and Tea)
Wanting Her Stepdad by Sadie Barron was a well-written taboo romance. Hallow's mother Tracey verbally abuses her and leaves her when she turns 18. Hallow's stepdad, Gage, stays with her, knowing that Tracey treats Hallow badly. He cares for Hallow, not his wife, whom he is planning on divorcing. Hallow has had a crush on Gage since she turned 18. He protects her and helps her when her mom doesn't. Tracey leaves and then it's just Hallow and Gage. The sexual tension was great. Hallow and Gage got ...more

“Wanting Her Stepdad” is a deliciously naughty forbidden romance read. Hallow finds herself at the receiving end of unwanted and unnecessary criticism from her mom. The only light at the end of the tunnel is her stepdad Gage. Gage wants out of his marriage but sticks around to protect Hallow. The two are undeniably attracted to one another and when they find themselves on the same page they give in to their feelings and get their much deserved happily ever after.

Short, sexy read!

Hallow's mother got remarried four years ago to Gage, a handsome biker that stands up for Hallow when her mother yells at her. When Hallow's mom decides she's had enough a few months after Hallow turns eighteen, she leaves. Hallow has been dreaming of Gage ever since she turned eighteen and she thinks it's wrong, but when Gage returns her affections all bets are off. This is a wonderful read and I highly recommend it!

Short, sweet and sexy! That’s what you will get here and won’t be disappointed. Forbidden and taboo but so so hot! I couldn’t put it down. Gage and Hallow are explosive together and as much as they try and fight their attraction to each other, it's inevitable. Even if it's taboo or forbidden and their age gap, they can't help but love each other. Gage's protectiveness had me swooning. ...more

Short, hot read. Hallow can’t do anything right in her mother’s eyes. Gage, her stepdad always has to discuss the yelling. When her mom leaves, she stays with Gage. She young but she knows exactly what she wants.

I went into this free book from Voracious Readers picturing steamy, no-strings attached sex and some "Daddy" dirty talk - I'll put aside that this is a barely legal, cliched, never been kissed untouched girl who's not-her-real-hot AF-dad took advantage of her when she was at her most vulnerable due to her abusive mom.

First the sex. I'm sorry, but how are lines like: "meaty thickness, swollen with veins" supposed to be sexy? I've seen better love scenes in fan fictions. Also, the acrobatics invol

I received a copy of "Wanting her Stepdad" from Veracious Readers in exchange for an honest review. Firstly, I must say take all of your ideas of what a relationship between a stepfather and a stepdaughter should be and toss them aside. Instead, look at the story from a different perspective. Look at it as a love story between two people. Forget the fact that Hallow is only eighteen and that her stepfather Gage is nearly twenty years her senior. If you put these factors aside, "Wanting her Stepd ...more

This is a short story that is very taboo, but enjoyable. My first time reading Sadie Barron’s writing.
This story will have you hooked. Hallow’s mom Tracey meets Gage and brings him home and they get married. Hallow is Tracey’s teenage daughter and she gets the protection of Gage whenever her and her mom get into it. Hallow is now 18, her mom has been married to Gage for four years and things aren’t going that good. Tracey has let herself go, she has gained weight and dresses in baggy clothing

A pleasant though predictable tale of a daughter unloved and unwanted by her mother who finds herself left with her 35 year old stepfather (at the age of almost 18) after her mother, tired of being a parent takes off. After turning 18, the daughter and step father find they've both been hiding feelings for each other.
Very simplistic writing makes this an easy read (less than an hour) with no great thinking needed but don't expect a great story. There is no character growth or plot twists. It is

I love this book, I just wish it wasn't that short though. I see that this book was banned from Amazon I don't know why but it was pretty good. One thing for sure though it was "taboo" but I wanted to read it and see what the story takes me and I thought it was pretty good. It has this story even though it has the cheating element to it, I think it was something that was bound to happen in the story because of how her mom was treating her and how he was protecting her. It was not so good circums ...more

story is as advertised in the blurb
quick read, steamy instalove story.
gave it 3 stars was ok
not sure why you would want to be with some one who was once in a relationship with your mum, but guess you cant pick who you are attracted too.
not really a fan of the idea of inexperienced virgins having mind blowing sex and orgasms a plenty with their first time, does not seem realistic but re

Hallow has a pretty horrible relationship with her mom, she is not very nice. Gage is always there to defend her. Once she turned 18 Hallow began to have some adult thoughts, she knew she shouldn't. Gage has begun to notice Hallow more since she turned 18, and he knows he should't. What happens when Mom leaves and it is just the two of them now?

This was a quick read. I did enjoy the steamy parts. The story-line is pretty strait forward. If you enjoy stepdad books this would be one you should ch

This HOT, feel-good quickie has lots of sexy fun times and an OTT adorable HEA.

This is not a long story but the author does an amazing job of filling in all the gaps so that it is not full of holes while also not rushing too much.

I felt that the author had the ability to convey some depth to the personalities of the characters, despite the length of the book, bringing a greater sense of reality to her story.

He protects her and then some

I was not sure what to expect when I picked up Wanting Her Stepdad based on the books description. But I figured the story could go one of two ways - sleezy and gross or deeply delicious. What the author was able to do was more of the side of deliciously taboo in this fast-paced, drama and way hot sexually novella.

I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are all my own.

If you're looking for an easy, sexy, or steamy romance, then this book is perfect for you! This book was very short, which is a plus when you don't have time to read much. It isn't very well written and the plot isn't the most complex, but I don't think anyone reading these books is really looking for lierary prowess... It completely fulfilled my exportations, and by that I mean it was very sexy... I had fun reading this book, and I would reccomend it! ...more

I received a copy of this book from voracious readers and I loved it. The plot and description were perfect, it wasn't rushed and boring. The relationship between Hallow and Gage was both stimulating and beautiful. The erotic scenes were amazing and incredibly steamy. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes short, slightly taboo eroticas. ...more

Barron's writing was addictive. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. I had to see it to conclusion. The only thing I wish it had been a slower rise. I wanted to see more, invest in the characters more, understand them more. Understanding that this is really a novella, it has the potential to be a full length novel. I would read more of Barron's work. ...more

I got a copy of this from voracious readers only and it is a quick read. However, it’s such a quick read that it doesn’t supply enough of a story line to make it not gross. Honestly it was pretty cringe worthy. But if your into that sort of relationship described in the book than you’d probably like it.
Mindy Reader
Ok read. I thought it would have more of a taboo element to the sexy times but it was pretty tame. Not sure why it was banned from amazon since the heroine is 18 when the book starts and nothing inappropriate happens when she is a kid. The hero has only been her stepdad for a few years.

HEA+epilogue 2 yrs out

Good quick sweet read. Just not as taboo/steamy as I was expecting.

I enjoyed the book, i just wished that there had been more character development. The relationship seemed to appear from nowhere, and develop at lighting speed.

Overall it was a super sexy, super hot read. I will be reading more Sadie.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via Voracious readers only. This novella was brilliant! The characters were interesting and had enough development in a short time to draw you in and keep you reading. I liked that the theme was taboo and it felt deliciously naughty to read.
