You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you.

When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be.

I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here.
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room.
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. Then, things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night.

Just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California.

It had been years since I’d seen Elec.

When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again.

And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.

I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.

Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel.

**Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+

My Review:

So I was looking for something different to read, a little more edgy than I normally read. The Stepbrother books were just in my face and this one kept popping up every time I would go on Amazon so I finally figured why not and got it.

HOLY CRAP! I am so glad I did. It wasn’t exactly what you think but it was insanely amazing.

The story follow Greta and Elec, GOOD GRAVY! I loved these too. Yes Elec was a HUGE pain in the ass and Greta was a bit obsessed over him but holy crap if you are going to have a thing for your stepbrother this is the guy you want to fall for. The story kept me reading way past my bedtime and starting back up as soon as I woke up. I loved every minute of it and was hung on every word. I did give this book 5 stars because it blew me away, however, I must mention that when you are reading his POV of the event that happened throughout the book it was interesting but redundant, I am not sure we need every detail word for word but it was a good way to see a glimpse inside his head and what he was feeling for her. I think what I liked most about this books was how the Stepbrother angle was handled, it was something that didn’t make me uncomfortable. The relationship they had was done very well and when all the details of Elec’s life was put on the table I thought even that was done with class.

I honestly LOVED this book, I loved Greta and Elec and I LOVED there relationship. If you are looking for something a bit Taboo and you are a bit of a newbie with that type of reading than this is MUST read for you. It was a great start to edgier reading that I will for sure read again. Penelope Ward, can really write fantastic characters and one amazing story.
