Title: Step-Lover

Author: Bella Jewel

Release Date:  March 9, 2015



Intended for mature audiences only 

I met him before I knew. 

I loved him before I knew. 

I didn’t know he was my stepbrother when I fell for Bladen. I fell for a mystery guy who I spent a long, amazing weekend with. Then he got up and left me, without even a goodbye. I was nothing more than a bit of fun. 

He broke my heart. 

I didn’t see him again. 

Until my mom and her new husband, Jack, decide to take us all on a family vacation to the lake so I can meet my new stepbrothers for the first time. 

I don’t see it coming. 

When he gets out of that car, my world stops. My passionate lover is…my stepbrother. 

He isn’t the same man. He’s a prick and he makes sure I know it. 

I’m not the same woman. I’m in love with him and I very much plan to make sure he knows it. 

He won’t make my life easy. I won’t give up.

tag1Step-sibling romances are very popular right now and I’m sure we have all read a few lately. Bella Jewel has created her own version of this forbidden relationship so as a fan of her previous work, I was definitely intrigued by her latest release. Step-Lover was fun and entertaining yet intense and dramatic. It included several great qualities of an emotionally charged journey.

Life obviously hasn’t been the same for Aria since the accident that killed her father and sister. She is emotionally scarred and is haunted by reoccurring nightmares. The one sliver of recent light was meeting a handsome mystery man and spending an unforgettable weekend wrapped up in his arms.

Blade doesn’t believe a committed relationship will ever be in his future. He is just looking for easy flings without attachment. Even with his hard edge and unapproachable attitude, Slade is a nice guy. He just isn’t willing to admit it. When the one girl he can’t forget unexpectedly resurfaces, the situation is worse than anything Slade could imagine.

The wild ride Aria and Slade experience together is extremely turbulent. Discovering their new connection to one another is very uncomfortable and they don’t handle it very well. The tension and angst skyrocket whenever they have a scene together. The chemistry between Slade and Aria is so steamy but they refuse to cross the line. I got whiplash with the constant back and forth from these two. Their wishy-washy behavior is understandable to a point but I felt it was a tad overdone.

The secondary storylines were wonderful additions and added plenty of spark to this novel. The family bonds that form between Aria and the new men in her life were great. Melanie is spunky and the perfect friend for Aria. I can’t wait for her book.

This isn’t just a love story, which makes this an enjoyable read for anyone. There is always a lot going on and the length of time that passes keeps the pages flowing easily. I had a good time with this one and am looking forward to the next book of this series.
