Step-Lover by Bella Jewel is Now Available & Reviewed

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.

Intended for mature audiences only

There's just something about a chick that wants to boink her brother. I have to admit the situation was adventurous, Aria finds out a hot weekend spent with a hot guy ends up being too close for comfort. This is why people shouldn't do one weekend flings without learning the name of the guy you’re having hot sex with. I mean what kind of moment would that be when your stepdad introduces you to your new brother and let's just say the situation gets awkward. They both ignore the situation like it's going to go away. I don't see it as taboo but the book was fun and Aria and Blade had smoking hot chemistry. At least that’s when Blade wasn't being a douche. Blade ran hot and cold so much I just wanted to slap him, and I prayed for Aria to kick his ass. I can't wait for Melanie's story, Brody had douche vibes too but he seemed redeemable...... Overall entertainment is four stars!

I have steered clear of the recent influx of step [insert title here] books and only gave Step-Lover a whirl because I enjoy Bella's writing style. I am very glad I gave Step-Lover a chance. This was a book I started and only put down long enough to get a few hours sleep before picking the book up again as soon as my eyes opened.

Aria and Blade have a weekend of anonymous sex and don't see each other again until over a year later when they learn that their parents are married and they are now stepsiblings. The attraction and chemistry between these two was off the charts. The on again, off again, will they, won't they made for a hot, emotional, gripping story.

I also loved the relationship between Aria and her other two stepbrothers, Brody and Riley. There is a real feeling of love and family in this book. This story is about more than the romance between Aria and Blade. It is also about moving on and learning to let people in after tragedy.

Step-Lover is a fantastic read that has left me on a huge high. I can't wait for Brody's story which is due out later this year.

I LOVED Step-Lover! I read it in a few hours, once I opened it I couldn't put it down. I know the Step genre is blowing up right now but honestly this is much more a love story with some angst thrown in than a taboo affair.

“We don't need names. I am whoever you want me to be.”

When Aria meets a sexy hot boy in a bar they have an instant connection. She spends an amazing weekend with him, at the end of that weekend she woke up alone and without his name. She will always remember the amazing time they shared. He will always be “What's his face...the one that got away.”

She meets him again at her stepfather’s lake house. She's never stopped thinking about Blade, he's always held a spot in her heart...until she finds out he's her new stepbrother. Now what? She can't ruin her mom's happiness. She can't be with him, can she? He pulls, she pushes. He pushes, she pulls.

“I need you to really want this, because I can't take you walking away again. So I'm asking you. If you want this, stay, because I can't go through it all once more.”

I definitely cried more than once through this. Ms. Jewel has a way of pulling you into the story. You feel each emotion. I loved the past and present chapters. The beginning with Aria's Dad and sister killed me. Riley's story broke my heart. I'm so happy this will be a series. I can't wait to learn more about Brody and Melanie and hopefully Riley.

This is by far my favorite book dealing with stepsiblings. I laughed, I cried and at times I wanted to reach through my Kindle and strangle someone. The sex scenes were hot as well. My only complaint was it was over much too soon. I can't wait to read the next book, I loved Brody and can't wait to read his story.
