this book was ok. I liked the characters but I just wish the story were a little longer and had a little more substance to it. it was still good just not too terribly deep.
Lucie not only has to share her house with her new step-father, but also his two sons. Emery and Quentin aren’t the typical boys Lucie goes to school with, not with their towering heights and muscular frames. As her annoyance for her two step-brothers slowly diminishes, and a fierce arousal settles in, Lucie knows that she isn’t going to be able to resist their advances for long.
Be Warned: anal sex, menage sex, violence, incest (not blood related)
This book was not what I was expecting. Everything changed when Lucie's mother married Quentin and Emery's father. Quentin, Emery and Lucie grow close, but their father's behavior changes and everyone sees a different side of Edward. This is so good it is a must read!!
A delightfully wicked little erotic story, with a little bit of a plot. The sex scenes are steamy and plentiful. Lucie’s mom remarries when Lucie has 1 year of school left. Edward and his 2 sons, Ethan and Quentin move in, which Lucie resents. Edward is hiding a secret about his late wife, and he’s an abusive alcoholic. He began beating Lucie’s mother while on their honeymoon. Lucie and her two step brothers begin their affair almost as soon as Lucie’s mother and their father leave for their honeymoon. The only thing I will say about the ending (so I don’t ruin it), is that almost everyone has a HEA.
Lucie is eighteen and about to enter her final year of high school when her mother shocks her by announcing that she is about to re-marry a man Lucie was not even aware her mother was dating. Not only will her soon-to-be stepfather move in with them, but also his two sons, both close in age to Lucie. Although she is angry with the entire situation, she soon finds herself lusting after both young men, and when their parents leave for their honeymoon, the three young adults come together in a combustive fashion. For a short novella, this story packs a punch. The sex scenes between Lucie and her new step-brothers, Quentin and Emery, are very hot, both the threesomes and the one on one encounters. Although the overall focus is on the delightfully sinful aspect of the step-sibling taboo and threesome-ness of the story, there is also a mystery of sorts that allows Lucie's character to be filled out in more than just the object of Quentin and Emery's desires. The angst underlying Lucie's doubts about Edward, her new step-father, and the way he treats her mother and Lucie herself, foreshadow nicely the way the story plays out. I was happy with the ending, although I would have loved for the story overall to be longer, or to get another look at their relationships farther down the road than just one year later, as in the epilogue.
Lucie is hurt and mad that her mom has decided to remarry. She likes things the way they are, just the two of them. The day that Edward and his two teenage sons moved in was one of the worst days ever for Lucie. There's something about Edward that just doesn't sit well with her. Over the next few weeks, Lucie starts secretly watching the boys lift weights, getting turned on. When her mom and Edward leave for their honeymoon, the boys put their own plan into motion. A little bourbon and two hot male bodies is more than Lucie can deny. The trio make love night and day and grow closer. When the couple returns home early, Lucie is horrified to see her mother with a black eye. Her mom explains away the injury as clumsiness, but Lucie knows better. Edward starts drinking heavily and her mother falls deeper into depression. Lucie knows that something is not right and goes snooping in Edward's things to find answers. He catches her and as he attempts to rape her, the boys come in and stop him. They fight and Edward is knocked unconscious. When the smoke clears, Edwards is arrested and her mom is found beaten and bruised. Now that the nightmare has ended, can they recover and move on? This story is very heartbreaking and unfortunately is happening every day. Many new families are formed from remarriages or previous relationships. Sometimes the transition is smooth but other times it can be disastrous as demonstrated in this story. I liked that the heroine was willing to put herself in harm's way to protect her mom and that the boys did the right thing in helping to stop their dad. It's painful to watch a child have to side against their parent and is a situation that shouldn't happen. Reviewed by: Pam S.
