descriptionIt is no secret that K Webster is one of my all-time favorite authors, and I especially love when she dips her toe into the "taboo", or in this case plunges her whole body into it. I LOVED this book SO much. You'd never guess this was done by two different authors. It was seamlessly written and executed. Yes, the subject is highly taboo, and people will probably lose their sh!t (lol), but putting that aside, this was an incredibly sweet romance about two people who find their soulmate. Who am I to pass judgment on them?

description 
So onto to the deets...as I mentioned, this was phenomenally well written. In a lot of coauthored books it is easy to tell what author wrote what part of the book (or character), but I dare you to try to guess in this one. I have read nothing by Danielle James before, but I am well acquainted with K, and I have no idea who wrote what. (lol) It was a fairly quick read as well. Clocking in at around two hours of reading time. It was told in a dual POV format. I didn't find it particularly angsty, and as I mentioned, the taboo issue aside, it was really an insta-love sweet type of story. There was no OW or OM drama. Hero wasn't a manwhore (21 years old). Heroine was a virgin (18, almost 19 years old), so at least she was young enough to make it believable. This was also a fairly slow burn in terms of sex, but when we do get to the sex scenes, they were smokin' hot. 

description 
Both the main characters were extremely likable. Mars was sweet. Sexy. Working hard to get his life back on track. Sage was equally sweet. Wore her heart on her sleeve. I loved the growth she showed during the book, and how she stood up for Mars. There were a few interesting secondary characters, but by far my favorite was Charles (Sage's Dad). The world needs more people like him. Last, it was all wrapped up in a beautiful ending, and I appreciate that these authors didn't gloss over the reality of two half siblings (view spoiler)

I have little else left to say. I loved every page. Every chapter. Every sentence. Every word. I sincerely hope these two authors pair up again soon. I will be at the front of the line waiting to get my hands on an early copy!

It is brand new. They opened on the 1st. They created it so they could avoid all the hassle of Amazon..I think. (lol)

Lynn I wish it were on Amazon. I read using Kindle Cloud Reader on my lap top and if I have books sent to my kindle they go to Docs and I have to read them using my phone. I hate reading on my phone because it strains my eyes. Sucks too because I like forbidden romance and it's been a while since I've read a good step-brother read. Do you know if it's on Kobo? Or only this site?


Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends) I am not sure, but just to be 100% clear it isn't (view spoiler) Maybe try messaging K and asking if it will be available elsewhere? She is SUPER sweet and I am sure she won't mind! 😁
