Feuds and Reckless Fury by K. Webster Blog Tour.

From USA Today bestselling author K. Webster comes an angsty and emotional enemies-to-lovers gay romance standalone!

The hatred began when my father proposed to another man in a shocking moment that rocked my family to its core…

Now I’m on a quest for revenge against my father.
That means hitting him where it hurts—the new fiancé and the son he thinks so much of.
Alister Sommers.

Alis is a bleached blond perfectionist thorn in my side who’s used to everything going his way. Grades, money, track—he dominates it all despite his short, insignificant frame.

Was one dad not good enough that Alis had to take mine too?

Soon, we’ll be stepbrothers.
Until then, I vow to make his life a living hell.
Maybe Dad will regret his terrible mistakes.
Maybe he won’t.
I know I won’t regret wrecking their lives like they did mine.

I’ll give up everything, even my girlfriend and football, if it means I get a chance for retribution.

It’s reckless and risky, but I don’t have much to lose.
The havoc I wreak might ease some of the pain Dad caused my mother.
I’m willing to give it a shot.

What starts as a family feud will become a war… one I plan on winning no matter the cost.

There’s only one small problem.
I may have underestimated my opponent.

Canyon Voss was on top of the world. He was popular, had an amazing girlfriend and tons of friends until his world collapsed. His dad broke up his family, left his mother and proposed to a man. Canyon's concern these days is revenge against his father, his father's fiancé, and his soon-to-be stepbrother. The thought of making them pay for ruining his family is all he can think about it consumes him.

“If I want to hurt Dad, I hurt Quinn. And if I want to hurt Quinn, I go for his beloved son. There’s a method to my madness.”

Alister was adopted by Quinn. His childhood wasn't the best and he's always waiting for the other shoe to drop and he'll lose everything, including his dad. Alister tries to be the best at everything he does to keep his dad happy, whether it's track or his classes. When Canyon switches his schedule to be in Alister's classes and quits the football team to join track team to make Alister less than the best.

Canyon thinks he's winning at this revenge game he's playing with Alister, but he never expects Alister to be such a worthy opponent.

This enemies-to-lovers angsty read was everything! The push and pull between Canyon and Alister made for a perfect read. I was completely invested from page one and couldn't wait to see how it all played out! Such a good read! Highly recommend!!

Author K. Webster is known for her angsty stories that will rip your heart out or make you wonder what you just read. But either way, you will be glad you read it in the end. This is one of those stories.

Canyon and Alister grew up as friends because their fathers were friends. But when Canyon's father leaves his mother for Alister's father, all Canyon sees is revenge. And the way to get that is through Alister. What Canyon didn't see coming was the way Alister really was and the feelings he felt for him almost immediately.

As Canyon pursues his revenge, or so he thought, his feelings for Alister begin to grow. As they explore each other and a relationship begins, his revenge turns to something more. Will Canyon continue to let revenge rule his mind? Can Canyon and Alister make a relationship work?

This is a story you will not see coming until it hits you in the face – and it is worth reading. Just be aware that a past will break your heart, but the story is perfect in the end.

5 stars for the romantic tension between Canyon & Alis.
2 stars for the "side quest"
3 stars overall.

Canyon has a vendetta against his soon-to-be stepbrother, wishing to hurt his father by hurting his father's new fiancé by hurting the fiancé's adoptive son, which causes Canyon to lose himself in the process.

With all bully romances, I always struggle with the bullying aspects due to the fact that they generally make zero sense, the bitterness always coming out of left field. Feuds and Reckless Fury attempts to make a believable reason for Canyon's animosity, even if it's directed at the wrong party, which he knows is the case, but he can't seem to help himself. So on that front, while not a punch to the gut, there was an air of believability.

Romantic tension in spades, rolling with the fact that a seemingly straight dude is vibing on his almost stepbrother was also believable. There wasn't much angst there aside from the stepbrother factor, but it sure was loaded with a delicious push-pull tension that could be cut with a knife. The novel shined when it came to the interplay between Canyon and Alis, where the pages just couldn't turn fast enough.

The slowly building romance between a pair of enemies turned allies turned lovers turned stepbrothers was written flawlessly.

Where the novel fell short:

The dads. They are written as too clueless, to the point that it's a wonder their children survived to the teenage years. The divorce strife is very realistic, the guilt the kids experience, along with feeling as if they're taking a side by continuing to love both of their parents. This truly tugged the heartstrings. But the dads were too clueless to feel realistic. I find it hard to believe dad would pop the question out of nowhere without the kids having a single clue about their fathers having an affair.

But what truly yanked me out of the realm of realism is the side quest. I won't go into detail, avoiding spoilers. There was enough angst, strife, and drama without the attempts on Alis' life, because it makes the dads yet again look like fools. When someone attempts to kill their son, they just sigh and do nothing about it. No police. Nothing. Someone dies in their presence... nothing. Absolutely nothing. They have money but take no steps to protect three teenagers? Besides foolish and clueless, this is downright negligence. No one bats an eyelash at this. Bizarre.

Why this portion bothered me so much, what was a solid romance filled with angst and drama and delicious tension, all of it realistic, all the sudden Alis is behaving as a too stupid to live, damsel in distress most readers complain about when reading MF romance, making idiotic decisions to force the hero to rescue him. This could have been realistic, a punch to the gut angsty, still utilizing most of the plot, without the "mafia" angle tossed in. It just took something that was amazing into over-the-top territory, a territory I don't wish to visit.

Even still, I do recommend to readers simply because of Canyon and Alis. The dads needed to be written more realistically (me being near their age, I try to envision myself being so freaking idiotic, especially educated, wealthy men).

I am sure I will be in the minority but this book was a miss for me. The blurb sounded great, and the book might have been better if the main characters were older. Their age played such a huge part for me. That's why Canyon was such an immature little turd and couldn't get over the fact of his dad living his true life as a gay man and divorcing his mom. Alister gave as good as he got with Canyon. I don’t know, I guess I couldn't get over the fact that if Canyon was older he wouldn't have been such a douche about things.
