Everything is going great for Madison Moriarty. She's got nice parents, good friends, and she's headed to UCLA at the end of the summer, the first step on an exciting journey towards becoming a world famous author just like her late father.

OK, so she may dress like she survived an explosion at an uptight, buttoned up Martha's Vineyard branch of Tommy Hilfiger, but she's a good girl, damn it, from her boring top-siders to her preppy sweaters right down to her stupid My Little Pony laundry day panties.

Rafe Stone... well, Rafe Stone is an asshole, and he's going to fucking jail. That's what happens when you steal your foster parents' Camry and drive it halfway across Colorado, the passenger seat strewn with empty beer cans and a homemade bong. He's been lucky so far, but this time the judge won't be satisfied with a slap on the wrist... unless Maddy's stepfather takes him in.

This is what happens when two worlds collide.

This is what happens when a nice, polite little princess gets thrown in with the stepbrother she never knew she had, a tattooed thug with a tight t-shirt, torn jeans, a pack of smokes and a bad attitude.

This is a story of love, hate and David Fucking Bowie.

You're gonna love it.

First Impression:

  • Got this book during my Stepbrother phase, loved the cover.
  • It wasn’t what I was expecting and I was hoping for a lot more.
  • More of what I don’t know.
  • The story sort of felt a little flat and didn’t take the chances I was hoping for.

The Story:

  • Typical girl discovers long lost stepbrother and falls in love.
  • Really just falls in love based on sex.
  • Had some steamy scenes but not a lot.
  • Liked the build of the story but I thought way to many conflicts.
  • I think I wanted more of them together and it just seemed like there was no build for them just her.

The Characters:

  • Madison was a cute MC. She was funny, smart and had all her ducks in a row.
  • Rafe was a dick, he was just a troubled kid that needed a good smack.
  • Not a lot of side characters. Kind of wished they had more.

Final Thoughts:

  • Overall it wasn’t a bad book, I think I just wanted more of them
  • I would recommend for anyone looking for a quick read
  • This book is for adults only no intended for anyone younger than 18.


Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. I’m sorry this wasn’t all you’d hoped it would be, Michelle. It sounds like if only there’d been more of Madison and Rafe together, developing both their relationship and their characters, the book would have had the depth you were looking for. I’m happy it wasn’t a total loss though.
    I hope that settling back into reality is going smoothly for you. I’m sure the kiddos were happy you were home. 🙂 It was so great to see you – just wish we’d had more time together. Next year though, right?!? {{{HUGS}}}

    • It was a good idea just not enough interaction to believe that characters had a connection.

      The kids were very happy 🙂 miss you all already! Hope we do get together soon…maybe next year 🙂
