He's a British rock star.
And my stepbrother.
What can go wrong?


He called himself Spider. I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane. I didn’t know who he really was…rock star…my stepbrother.

He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would.

Everyone warned me about him.
They said he was ruthless and cold and screwed up.
They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart.

Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.

Some have said there's an unbreakable thread that connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.

He just had to figure it out before it’s too late…

AH! I totally forgot about this. I'm so glad you commented otherwise I totally would've missed it. I'm gonna add it to my Kindle now. But I gotta divide time for this one and another I'm starting on KU Today as well. (:

Wait! Did you finish Grace Street?! I forgot about that one too!


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) Yes I did. I like the first book more than the second. Elsa kept annoying me

It was... Well I'm happy how they ended. Oh and I freaking knew she called off the engagement. I just had that feeling.

Victor was totally oblivious to it though. Lol. Like she’s not the type of girl for cheating. How did he not see that?!

Finished. I absolutely loved this story. And I have to say that it was so refreshing that it wasn’t an intense af erotica. Like there was sex. But nothing like we’ve been reading and it was so nice. For once. Lol.

Holy crap!!! I'm only 20% through the book. But I was thinking would putting it under Orphan work since her mom died and she was in foster care for a while before her adoptive mother well adopted her.

Okay. Last night was one of those nights were I couldn't stay awake. Like the minute I got home I was nodding off.

I hate those nights. Lol. Especially when I have to get reading done. Lol.

I actually put this book in a different slot. But I don't want to tell you which because I don't know if you've gotten to a certain part yet.

That's okay. Lol. I am hoping to get more reading done tonight. Plus yesterday I was in a very horrible mood and it's a good thing I didn't read much.

Well that sounds good. I will be able to read more at lunch time. Well hopefully without Wy interrupting me. Or my best friend (who I'll just call Sir) calling me.

Work has been super busy today. So I haven't gotten to read at all. -.-

When I get home I really need to start Children of Blood and Bone. I was supposed to start that on Sunday. I'm terrible. -.-

Oh nice. It's kind of slow here. I haven't read anything yet. Because it might get super busy and well this week at work has been stressful. Which really sucks because it is only Wednesday.

I know right! Rent is due this week for my tenants and naturally everyone complains about something when they come in to pay rent. So it's been a mad house. -.-

Me and Wy rent a 2 bedroom house for $400 the only thing I can complain about is that it's taken our landlord 2 years to fix the central air and we were without heat this winter so we had to get electric heaters. Still waiting for it to get fixed.

He's probably my worst landlord. Me and Wy are trying to buy a house so we don't have to deal with it.

Oh hot damn! No heat in the winter would be terrible. I wish I was paying only $400! I pay $925 for a three bedroom apartment. But Buffalo rent is so damn expensive. My company right now has a 2 bedroom house available for rent and it's $700 per month.

Here in my small town rent is cheap. If I went up to Wichita I would have to pay $550-$700. My brother lives in Colorado and before he bought a house he was paying $1400.

Yeah, some of the apartments we have a ridiculously expensive. We have a 1 bedroom unit in a building we just renovated that has a private patio for $1900! Like what! Lol.

Me either! Lol. I can barely afford my current place. -.-

How far have you gotten today?

Not very far. I had to run a few errands at lunch and barely had time to eat so I didn't get any reading down. But I am hunkering down tonight and getting into this. BTW when this first started in present time his blue hair. That was weird for me. I don't mind the white but the blue. Not for me.

Lol glad I'm not the only one.


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) After this book I am planning to read the ransom series. It's a trilogy. do you want to read it with me? If not I understand with it being another dark novel.

Here's the first book.
Beyond Ransom (Ransom, #1) by A.T. Douglas

I can’t do another BR for a few days. But I want to do a lovey dovey erotica. I think I’ve had my fair share of dark erotica recently. I need super smutty and super cute before I move into more dark smut. Ya know?


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) Totally understand. I'm reading this trilogy to get it off my tbr


Mrs. Allen 107 (The Kansan Reader) (thekansanreader) Didn't finish the book last night. I'm at the part where Spider is now clean and there was a storm and he built a fort for Rose.

But his name is freaking Clarence. Wtf?! Lol.

I can't take the name Clarence seriously ever. Plus it's not a name you want to scream out in climax. Just saying.
