    As far as stepbrother romance novels goes this one wasn't anything to write home about... What I did like about this book was the part where they are caught in a terrible earthquake in Mexico and they find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere with low provisions and some mean ass bikers on the same road... What started as a journey on his bike soon turns into a battle for survival... If you're a stepbrother genre fan then you could give this one a try.

Dirty talker Shane is a SEAL who works hard and fucks hard. Other than his beloved mother, he doesn't get close to women. Cassie is a marine biologist who is studying for her graduate degree, but when looking out for seals one day at the beach, she comes across a different type of SEAL and ends up for once in her life being reckless. After they have what ends up being the best sex of their lives, he leaves for deployment the next day without any intentions of seeing Cass again. She is an educated woman and he feels that she is too good for him, but what does he care anyway? He doesn't do relationships. So why can't he stop thinking about her? Cass is an independent woman, she has never relied on a man other than her father, so why does she keep thinking about the hot marine with the dirty mouth and even dirtier demands? 9 months later, they are thrown into turmoil when they learn that their respective parents are about to wed in Mexico. Cass is mortified but Shane sees this as an opportunity to get what he can from her before they officially become step-siblings. However, neither of them can predict what will happen when their motorbike ride to Cabo ends up becoming a traumatic experience. _ _ _ _ This was a very HOT book, a bit OTT at times but it was a great read to fill a boring afternoon.

As for the second event, well, it felt very over the top and dramatic. While I do get that we have a [email protected]$% Navy SEAL macho man in the story, what he ended up resulting in doing was way too extreme even for a military man like him. Not to mention, the involvement of those persons was also kind of random as well. I don't know, this book is at a toss up for me. I liked for the most part, the first half, but after that it was touch and go for me.

    A sexy romance combined with witty banter and a hot SEAL! (the human kind) Lately I have been lazy with my reviews. Life happened and my reading has become less frequent. This makes me sad, but also has made me selective and more demanding with my dose of romances... Maybe actively seeking romance myself, has turned me into a realist, fairy tale crusher.... HA! This book was one of those hard, fast and to the point reads. Why? The words flow and the characters draw you in. Cassie, a regular girl A sexy romance combined with witty banter and a hot SEAL! (the human kind) Lately I have been lazy with my reviews. Life happened and my reading has become less frequent. This makes me sad, but also has made me selective and more demanding with my dose of romances... Maybe actively seeking romance myself, has turned me into a realist, fairy tale crusher.... HA! This book was one of those hard, fast and to the point reads. Why? The words flow and the characters draw you in. Cassie, a regular girl who is a marine biologist, loves seals (the animal kind) and such love made her stumble upon Shane, a hot, badass jerk who takes an opportunity in order to "have" a one night stand with her. These two were not supposed to see each other again, even though Cassie wanted to. He was a SEAL, he went away, never called and why would he. He was not into relationships whatsoever. Too bad both of them thought of each other often and too bad, several months later they learn that their parents are getting married. One blackmailed road trip to Cabo later.... sparks fly and love blooms. I won't delve deeper, there is no need to. If you want a sexy, hot read with a badass hero, an adorable heroine, and have a few laughs in the process with their scorching banter... go for it. It's a steal with a SEAL!!!

    I really enjoyed this book about a tough as nails bad boy Navy Seal Shane, and an intelligent Marine Biologist named Cassie. They met at a beach where she made a quick decision to help a sea lion pup and Shane came to her rescue as the mama sea lion came back. Cassie agrees to have sex with him in return for him not reporting her. "I went. It was crazy, I know. I'd probably regret it, but I was going to fuck a cocky, arrogant bad-boy jerk. I should be ashamed of myself. But something deep inside I really enjoyed this book about a tough as nails bad boy Navy Seal Shane, and an intelligent Marine Biologist named Cassie.

Fast forward 9 months, Shane and Cassie end up having something in common, their parents are engaged to be married and they are both invited to the wedding. Neither have been able to forget the other after their time spent together, "And yet...and yet. Sex had felt so right between us. It had been different, special. It had felt as if we were meant to find each other and be together." This book was exciting, I really loved the storyline and the journey to the wedding. Twists and turns, natural disasters, this story had it all with passion and sparks as well. I received a free copy of this book from the authors for an honest review.

Once I started reading this, I couldn't put it down. It grabs you by the heart and squeezes tight, not letting go until the end. The plot has a wonderful flow to it, yet still manages to catch you by surprise with new and unexpected twists along the way. The characters are strong and stubborn, yet still all heart. Both the main characters are afraid to love, each for their own reasons, but unable to stop the hands of fate. They encounter many rough roads along their journey. Will love be enough? You should really read the book to find out. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't.

    I loved this book!! It was not what I was expecting, but I was pleasantly surprised! I always love that. Shane was totally sexy. A rough exterior with a tender side. Cassie seemed a little meek at first, but changed very quickly. The story line was good. I liked the ideal of them traveling together. That is definitely one way to get to know someone really quick. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Every now and again life offers us the best thing that we will ever find amidst the worst possible circumstances. All we have to do is to figure this out before it’s lost to us forever. Absolutely no pressure there. Some say when life gives us lemons, we should make lemonade. Too bad more of us don’t think that way. Life would be a whole lot more interesting and what fun is life if we don’t take a risk every now and again. Cassie is a serious student who is starting her graduate degree on the foreign shores of California after living her entire life in Massachusetts. She plans to devote her life to marine biology and to her love of nature and the wildlife within it. She never intended to find her own brand of wildlife for her own non-existent love life, but life had a big surprise in store that she would turn her heart and world upside down. Shane has chosen the life of a Navy SEAL, and thinks he lives the perfect life. No commitment, no demands, and nothing tying him down aside from his job. Cassie and Shane know they don’t fit into the other’s life, but neither can find the strength to deny their intrigue and attraction. While Cassie tries to decide if she really wants to let Shane into her life let alone her heart, Fate rips the decision away from her and sends both on a whirlwind ride that changes everything. Will they be the same when the dust settles, or will they discover a love so all-encompassing and resilient that they will gladly open their hearts and their lives to the only One that has ever been able to breathe life into them? Cassie and Shane couldn’t have been more different and yet they complimented and completed the other in ways they refused to acknowledge. While being too busy guarding their hearts from being hurt, they find that they have been living life on automatic. Not really feeling, keeping everyone out, and losing themselves in their work. They don’t make excuses for who they are, but when their eyes are finally open they realize how much they have been missing. Their hearts collide and intertwine almost immediately ingraining the other into their very soul. Watching these two stumble through the meaning of real love, unconditional acceptance, and being vulnerable initially tore at my heart and then made it soar when life took on such a powerful meaning that they couldn’t even express. I couldn’t help falling in love with these two stunning characters that made me feel every part of their incredible journey together. The honest realism and the depth of their emotions hit me hard and left me absolutely gutted. There is no way that I could get enough of their love story! Linda Barlow and Alana Albertson undoubtedly and forever rocked my world with their mind-blowing masterpiece! They crushed and obliterated all of my expectations taking me for one out-of-this-world exquisite love story that has etched itself like a beautiful tattoo on my heart. Some stories written by two authors can seem choppy and at times disjointed, but what I found was one story, written with a huge heart, and illustrated with a soul overflowing with hope and joy that is contagious and unapologetic. Please give this story a chance as you will not be disappointed.

    This was a treasure, it was completely enthralling and totally encapsulating and for all the right reasons. Cassie and Shane both have purpose, both have plans that they are completely focussed on. Cassie is working hard toward her chosen profession – marine biologist and Shane is a Navy SEAL and that suits him right to the ground that is until their paths cross. But once they have a connection the curveball that is thrown at them is enough to have them running for the hills or is it? Can they work This was a treasure, it was completely enthralling and totally encapsulating and for all the right reasons. Cassie and Shane both have purpose, both have plans that they are completely focussed on. Cassie is working hard toward her chosen profession – marine biologist and Shane is a Navy SEAL and that suits him right to the ground that is until their paths cross. But once they have a connection the curveball that is thrown at them is enough to have them running for the hills or is it? Can they work at what they have and can accept that life without each other is not an option? I was held captive by the journey that they were on, they were so busy with the banality of life that when they fell it was obvious that they hadn’t been living really they had been merely existing, Going through the motions on a daily basis is tiring but they brought a spark of love and honesty to each other that meant being without each other was like cutting off a limb. They completed each other and that a beautiful thing to read. In fact the whole book was beautifully written. It was honest and realistic. It gave credence and purpose to a love that could not and would not be denied. It gave me goose-bumps on occasion and gutted me completely on others but it made me feel thankful that of all the books that I had at my disposal, I had taken the time to read this absolutely magnificent story. There are times when words fail to fulfil their full potential and that is a shame, because words should always be so much more than just filler, that don’t add detail or emotion, that give no depth or credence to the page they are on or the story they are included in. This I have to say is not one of those occasions – every word is beautifully placed and every emotion is perfectly painted. Nothing goes to waste and you will be hard pressed to find the words yourself to describe how you feel when you have finished.

Apparently she also loves the human type of marine life, specifically a Navy SEAL. One night of sex was all Cassie wanted from Shane. He was the most incredible, gorgeous, arrogant jackass she ever met. The sex was incredible and she would never forget it. Shane doesn’t do relationships. After his father left him and his mom alone when he was young, Shane doesn’t believe in love. One night with a woman is all he needed. That is until he met Cassie. The sex was off the charts but she was also different than any other woman he had ever met. Too bad he was off to Afghanistan for months the next day otherwise he would have liked to spend more time together. Many months later, after not seeing each other or keeping in touch, they both still think about each other. Imagine their surprise when they run into each other over dinner with their parents who happen to be getting married to each other. Shocked is a mild description of how they felt. When Shane’s mom and Cassie’s dad get married they will be stepsiblings. Sex between them can’t happen again. Or can it? Both decide that one-week together will get each other out of their system before their parents’ wedding. They embark on the road trip of a lifetime and get a lot more than they bargained for. This book was fantastic. Shane was smoking hot and Cassie was awesome with the way she put him in place all the time. This couple is perfect together: the dirty talking sex god and the beautiful, snarky red head. This book had everything you could want to read about; hot sex, suspense, and comedy. I loved it!! I definitely recommend this book to read!

Shane was a hot and sexy as hell and he knew it. He could be arrogant and a smart a**. Deep down he truly felt passion toward people. I think that is one reason he was a Navy Seal. Shane did not care to blackmail Cassie on more than one occasion. He had her once and he knew he had to have her again. It did not matter that they were getting ready to become step-siblings. They were doing their best to get it out of their system before their parents married. But the heart wants what the heart wants. Can they fight and deny these feelings that they have for each other? What will happen if their parents find out? What an amazing book and so love the ending. I think the authors did one amazing job. Total a 5 star book in my eyes. You will feel so much emotion as you read about this adventure Shane and Cassie are on. They faced disaster, danger, passion, lust, and insight. I highly recommend this book.

When he first lay eyes on the redheaded stranger that is watching the local sea lions & seals in Children Pool cove he know he wanted his last night before hes deployment with her. Cassie is a marine biologist and studying the vocals of the local seal and sea lions when a strange sexy man makes his appearance with his tattoos and arrogant look on his face and she knew he is a total badass, her weakness in a man. Even when he saves her from a mother sea lion, you will have to read it, and he decides for his silence about what she did, he will demand her a trade for an all night long feast and he wont tell on her.

It's Shane's last night before he ships off so he's looking for some fun before his assignment. When he sees beautiful Cassie, he knows he has to have her for the night. Nine months later Shane returns home and gets a call from his mom to meet him at a restaurant. He finds out not only is his mother getting married but his new stepsister is the same one he hasn't been able to get out of his head for the past nine months. For the first half of the book, Shane is a total jerk and I kept scratching my head at why Cassie can't stay away from this guy. Cassie is polar opposite right from the beginning. She's smart, independent and driven. The further in the book, when in Shane's POV, you see his feelings more for Cassie. When the inner-SEAL in him comes out, Cassie is finally able to see the real man he is and her feelings start to bloom. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this story in the beginning, especially with Shane's attitude. However, once I got past that and the book went on, I really enjoyed it. I loved the problems the author made and the self-realization that each character made. I can't wait to read another book from this author.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Although this story is about step-siblings, it is not what I consider a “typical” step story. Cassie and Shane meet, have a very sexy one night stand, and effectively disappear from each other’s lives – for Cassie it is she gets on with life and for Shane, he is a SEAL and ships out without ever contacting Cassie while he is away. Despite it just being one night, both Cassie and Shane form a strong bond but never get a chance to ta I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Despite it just being one night, both Cassie and Shane form a strong bond but never get a chance to talk to one another about it. Their second meeting is when they show up at a dinner where their respective parents announce they are getting married! Chaos ensues. The story doesn’t stop here, about the crazed relationship between Cassie and Shane. It is also about a road trip (you’ll have to read the book to find out what THAT is all about!) and what happens between and to these two. I really liked Shane’s mom – she took a backseat to her son and that tells me a lot about how close they are. Great story about relationships, families, and how strong you can be when you have to be. And down and dirty talk, too. It was a good read and I enjoyed it.

    I received this book as an ARC, what an honour. This was a really well written book, I liked the structure, using each chapter to tell the story of one of the characters. This allowed the reader to maintain perspective from different view points, as well as being engaging and allowing the reader to develop a relationship with the characters. The story was easy to read and pleasantly surprising, without any of the anx that comes with the usual separation of romance books.

The story was easy to read and pleasantly surprising, without any of the anx that comes with the usual separation of romance books. The main characters were independent indiviudals who thought they wanted to be unattached, but once spending time together fell into love (literally). The circumstances are unusual but not unrealistic, which engages the reader and continues to develop the characters personalities through the pages. The story continues down a road of parental sacrifice and compromise which leads to good outcomes all round. Although the story ends well (ie there is no cliff hanger), there is an option to explore the characters further, if the authors/readers desired.

    Such a great book! I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review. First let me say, the whole stepbrother thing is making me crazy! Everywhere I look people are writing these books about sex with step siblings and it's just insane. As for this book, it was NOTHING like the others I've read! Both if the characters are well above the legal age and actually meet before their parents do! Something that started as a one night stand, turned out to be a lot more when their parents introduced them Such a great book! I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Something that started as a one night stand, turned out to be a lot more when their parents introduced them 9 months later saying they were getting married. How can Cassie and Shane even think about hooking up again now that they were going to be step siblings? Anyways, to see what happens, you will have to get the book when it is released! It was a great read and I loved it! Shane is the super hot SEAL and Cassie is the timid Marine Biologist that doesn't have time for relationships. Shane doesn't do relationships, he fucks! How will it work for them

The author really has a smooth flowing story line in this book with Cassie and Shane setting the pages on fire and they really spice up this story. This is for mature erotic romance readers and well worth the time to read.

    This book was great! Definitely different from any other step sibling romance I have read. I loved Cassie and Shane from the start. They had great chemistry, and as from what I said earlier this is definitely different from any other step sibling romance ive read. The plot was great. kept me wondering what was going to happen next. I really liked that it wasn't all drama. Poor me stuff. This author did a great job with this book! The ending was definitely something I didn't see coming and I felt This book was great! Definitely different from any other step sibling romance I have read. I loved Cassie and Shane from the start.
