Summary Stepbrother Dearest

Stepbrother Dearest

Om 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 But things started changing between us and it all came to a head one night Then just as uickly as he’d come into my life he was gone back to California It had been years since I 35 Stars You make me feel things Greta You always have When I m around you whether it s good or badI feel everything Stepbrother Dearest is written in two parts In the first part the character are 1718 years old and in highschool In the second part the book fast forwards seven years The characters are reunited and so the story continuesSo first of all let me just say that Stepbrother Dearest was a really great book The writing was engaging the characters multifaceted and the pacing was pretty good tooSecondly 35 Stars is not a bad rating It means as per Goodreads rating system that I liked the book bordering on really liked itHere s a uick summary of my feelings towards Stepbrother DearestYes the story follows the relationship of Greta and Elec who are step siblings Elec s father married Greta s mother and when Elec s mother gets a job opportunity overseas she sends him to go live with his father and new wife and step daughterHere s where the story fell a bit flat for me That first meeting between Elec and Greta was awesome the sexual tension was palpable and the forbidden factor was pretty obvious and made the scene very enjoyable but unfortunately we had one POV and it was Greta s So I was constantly reading about her lust and growing love for Elec while I could pick up on Elec s growing attraction to Greta it lacked intensity Which is why I need his POV I love a cocky alpha male and I love it when he s so into the heroine his knee jerk reaction is to be mean But I need his POV to counteract the meaness otherwise I just think he s being a dick That was the problem I d grown to love a little mean mixed in with my nice Seven yearsThe characters are estranged for seven years and when tragedy befalls the family they re are reunited The tension and angst was so obvious and with both characters having moved on mainly Elec who now had a girlfriend it was pretty painfulHere s where I get a bit ranty Rants are not done because we want to slam the book I just rant because I have all these emotions inside me that need to be let outGreta was obviously still in love with Elec and I m not sure but I think he was too or maybe it was just lust I don t know I needed his POV because uite honestly I started hating the guy He had another girlfriend who he vocalised his love for at any given moment in front of GretaI m sorry Elec but don t I remember you saying you would never hurt her And don t act dumb you know she still has feelings for youSo I regret to say the story became some sort of love triangle and you know what that s okay But at least have the third party play an active role in the book Chelsea was like a shield for Elec he mentioned her when things got intense Which was like a bucket of ice cold water to GretaAnd then lastly the book so I m just going to spoiler tag this oneview spoilerElec wrote a book The book was Elec s POV it was like a repeat of the entire book but from his perspective Which uite honestly felt like a waste of time His POV should have been interwoven into the book it would have given me the reader the opportunity to empathise with Elec and not feel like he didn t want Greta as much as she wanted him What annoyed me even was the fact that he loved Chelsea I mean he loved her a lot But he loved Greta hide spoiler

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 I know I m not supposed to care But when it comes to you what I m supposed to be feeling has never seemed to matter This was one angsty ride The book was very intense and emotional I couldn t stay away from it and kept flipping pages like crazy I was enamoured with the story from the beginning till the end It is divided into two parts The first one tells us how Greta and Elec met They were step siblings Elec came to live with Greta her mom and his dad for a year She wanted to be friends and all he did was acting like a giant dick and an asshole But he was my kind of asshole who in the endwasn t really that asshole you know They didn t spend much time together because Elec had to go back to take care of his mother Before he left they somehow became friends or even and spent one hot and sexy night together which left their hearts broken You make me feel things Greta You always have When I m around you whether it s good or bad I feel everything Sometimes I don t handle it too well and I fight it by acting like an asshole I don t know what it is about you but I feel like you see the real me After seven years due to the family tragedy they meet again While Elec clearly moved on Greta wasn t that lucky and still has feelings for him You were the best thing that happened to me I hope someday I can say you were one of the best but for now it s only you Once they see each other again heart wants what it wants and makes Elec one very confused hero I never wanted to see you again GretaIt s so fucking good to see you again Greta While the story progresses facts are revealed and as Elec and Greta spend time together it is painfully obvious that those two are destined to be together though nothing can be done because Elec has a new girlfriend I know it was an issue for some of my friends but I wasn t really put off by it cause these things can happen in life and everything was resolved very well in the endview spoilerI know the fact that he loved them both was not cool but it s not like he didn t try He came back for Greta later some time found out that she was engaged and saw her happy with someone else Since he felt not worthy of her and thought she was happy he finally let her go He couldn t have Greta and it took him three years to eventually settle down he met Chelsea and he fell in love again But appearances can be deceptive and the fact that Greta was not that happy at all and never mended her broken heart is another story I was eventually able to let Greta go only because I thought she was happy and that she was with someone who loved her Everything I believed to get me over her was a lie Realizing that now put my feelings back at suare one even though I wouldn t be able to act on themBut he couldn t fully love Chelsea IMO because his heart was always with Greta he just wasn t aware of that while they were apart I think this issue was well developed in the book I couldn t possibly fully love her if my heart beat faster for someone else My heart hasn t shut up since it spotted you standing in that garden I finally listened It just took some time to clear my head enough to really understand what it wantedThere was never any contest I loved Chelsea but it was by default I love you so much Every second I was with you again I had to constantly reassure myself that I loved Chelsea which is not something that you should have to do hide spoiler
