Release Day Blitz: Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward

Stepbrother Dearest
By Penelope Ward
Release Date: September 29, 2014


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+

Candi's 5* Review:
GAHHHH OMG I absolutely LOVED this book!!! Once I started reading...I was HOOKED and there was NO putting it down till the end!!

When Greta's stepbrother Elec comes to visit for a while her life is about to be forever changed. No matter how big of an ass he is to her or how much he tries to push her away, the more determined she is to break thru his walls.

"Physically, he was my dream and in ever other way, my nightmare. Still, I refused to let him see that his words had an affect on me."

As much as I tried to dislike Elec there was just something about his bad boy attitude I loved and trust me when I say you will fall for him as well!! I knew there was more to him than what meets the eye. I wanted to know his story and why he pushed everyone away.

Just as he begins to open up to Greta he gets a phone call that will be sending him back to California. That night will forever change Elec and Greta....He tries to tell her this one night is all they can have, he can't give her more but will Greta fall even deeper for Elec after their night together? Will things change that night for Elec as well?

"Look at me, Greta. Because I need to make sure you're really okay with the fact that this would end tomorrow. You would never be able to tell anyone. I'll give you anything and everything you want tonight as long as you truly understand all that. You need to promise me that you could handle this."

7 years later Greta still can't get over Elec. She tries to move on but she can never give her heart to anyone else. When she gets a phone call in the middle of the night from her mother she must return home. When she comes face to face with Elec again after all these years will thing be different? Will he be alone? Does Elec still want her just as bad as she has always wanted him? When it is time for Elec to head back home to California again will he break her all over again? Has Elec really moved on or is he ready to get his girl back where she belongs?

"You make me feel things, Greta. You always have. When I'm around you, whether it's good or bad....I feel everything."

I'm telling you I seriously LOVED this book!! I didn't want it to end and if I could give this book more than 5 stars I def would!! Amazing job Penelope!!!! <3
