Book Review: Stepbrother, Mine by Opal Carew

Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Release Date: 24th November 2015
No. of pages: 272
ISBN: 978-1-250-05285-8
Rating: 5/5


This edition has all 3 serial stories in one book.

This is Dana and Mason’s story. Dana cut off by her mum despite how many times Dana was there for her. Dana is really stressed over money and wondering how she is ever going to pay for college. Her friend comes up with a plan…. Sell her virginity.

The Author did a magnificent job unfolding the love that Mason and Dana Shared.

Mason is everything Dana needs at that point in her life, he fills a whole in her heart that her mother can’t fill because she is too wrapped up in her life. Dana had her dad but unfortunately she doesn’t get to see him as much as she would love too. So her older stepbrother steps in and provides that parental guidance she needs. Mason ends up leaving his little stepsister without saying goodbye to her. Until one day he ends up finding his innocent little stepsister on a website he never thought he would find her on. Of course fate would step in and bring them together in a way they both wanted but never thought they could have.

This story is very well written a long friendship that changes to intense lovers. I really enjoyed the flash back’s to the past. I found the stories pace perfect. Dana is just perfect in the end for Mason, she is everything he didn’t really think he wanted or needed.

Book Review: Ride by Lisa Glass

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Quercus
Release Date: 16th June 2016
No. of pages:  397
ISBN: 978-1-84866-344-2
Rating: 5/5


Ride is the Third and final book in the trilogy Blue.

Iris and Zeke go thru hard times in their lives facing adult decisions and looking for their own identity.

Iris struggles to find her place in Newquay again. She’s a celebrity now, the very definition of a local girl made good in a town where professional surfers are rock stars. She is different. Unwilling to admit the truth, even to herself, Iris lets her emotions overrule her head. She makes some mistakes and has to live with some unpleasant consequences. And every time she surfs, she is reminded of Zeke.

The delicious Zeke is absent for most of the story, but he’s written in so cleverly in flashbacks and conversations that I felt he was just off the page and ready to walk in at any moment.

The event at the end of the book left me almost heartbroken for a bit.

What I love about Lisa’s books is the fact that she shows the way life is, sometimes bumpy and dirty. That nobody is perfect but still we are all worth a lot, even if there are times when we don’t believe in ourselves. I hope to read more of Lisa’s books.

There were so many great characters we had to say goodbye to with this book and I wish the trilogy continued on.

Book Review: Air by Lisa Glass

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Quercus
Release Date: 4th June 2015
No. of pages: 340
ISBN: 978-1-84866-342-8
Rating: 5/5


Air is the Second book in the trilogy Blue.

If you loved Blue you will adore this book too. Air follows their story as they go off to surfing competitions and promoting various surf wear labels professionally. I loved getting back into this world.

Air doesn’t start right from where Blue finished, things that happened in between are mentioned throughout the novel to catch you up.

I loved how the tensions between Iris and Zeke escalated subtly as the story developed, leading to an intense finale. Zeke’s secret was alluded to masterfully throughout the novel, but never too obviously so that once it was revealed it was just as much a shock to me as it was to Iris.

I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.

Another great book from Lisa. I can’t wait to read Ride but not looking forward to the end of Iris and Zeke. I love this trilogy.
