    2 CELIBACY ISN'T FOR ME STARS I must admit, I was disappointed with this hero. He said he has been in love with her for 4 years, but I say NOT! And why you may ask? He was still having sex with all those other girls! Hey guys, he tried here but guess what? Celibacy wasn't his thing. Really!? Does anyone with a brain cell buy this bullshit? I am not going to say it's easy not to have sex once you've had it but the fact of the matter remains, if you love someone you stay true to them.

I am not going to say it's easy not to have sex once you've had it but the fact of the matter remains, if you love someone you stay true to them. Therefore, I don't think he loved her at all. I think he just wanted to keep his Virgin prize on the side while he f*cked around with all the women he wanted. The whole idea was an insult to the intellectual reader who understand that intercourse is not the only way a man can relieve himself. Doing this is an insulting to the love he said he felt for the heroine. However, if you let this issue go, then he was not a bad man because he looked out for her and tried to do what was right. He was just a two faced hypocrite in my opinion. I think she would have been much better off truly punching him in the nuts then hitting him with a pillow!!! Seriously, my husband would at least find inching powder in his underwear or waxing off all his body hair!!! Something! Oh well, it's not a bad book just not great. If you can over look this issue, then this book wasn't bad. Sadly, I couldn't because of the way it was written. It felt wrong and like he was cheating! Those are my thoughts!

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    This is hands down my favorite story with a step-brother trope. Everything about how it was handled to the actual characters themselves was done very well. It doesn’t hurt that the hero is one of my favorite types. Alexandros and his father, Costas, are rich and powerful and Greek. Alexandros lost his mother at the age of 11 and assumed his father would never remarry. When Costas is well into his 20's his father falls in love with an American woman with a teenage daughter.

It doesn’t hurt that the hero is one of my favorite types. Alexandros and his father, Costas, are rich and powerful and Greek. Alexandros lost his mother at the age of 11 and assumed his father would never remarry. When Costas is well into his 20's his father falls in love with an American woman with a teenage daughter. Alexandros assumes she is a gold digger and protests the marriage causing trouble between him and his father. After some time, Costas convinces Alexandros to attend a family brunch where he is forced to socialize with his new step mom and sister. What he wasn't expecting was to be intrigued with Elynn, his step sister who is 17. He notices she is shy and wears bagging clothing but is extremely smart and beautiful and later learns she has suffered a traumatic event in her life. I loved how the author cultivated the relationship over a span of years and how respectful Alexandros was of her age. He knew he needed to wait for her to grow up before making a move while also still be an important person in her life. He earned her trust and protected her so that when it was time, she would already have the bases of a strong relationship with him as well as time to heal from her past trauma. Once he decided she was ready for that relationship, boy did the story heat up. Alexandros is a very dominant man but he always held a part of himself back with her. Once he decided she was ready, he charged full speed ahead. Not everyone is a fan of an OTT alpha male, but if you are this is the story for you. What I also loved was that since Alexandros gave her so much time to build their trust in each other, Elynn became a more confident woman. While for the most part Alexandros would take complete control of their relationship, she always stood up to him when he pushed her past her comfort zone. Despite the years it took for them to get together as a couple, I did not feel this story dragged on. In fact, I pretty much read this book straight through, and this is going on my top favorites list. Great story!

    I found this to be really poorly written...too much dull, repetitive sentence structure, so that I couldn't lose myself in the story or even feel for the heroine's past suffering. Just very simplistic and childish in terms of the writing, and too much was told rather than shown. I get the comparison to Lynda Chance, but I think her writing is a bit more mature and developed. It also repulsed me that hero had feelings for the heroine but sleeps with other women until he sees a sign that heroine i I found this to be really poorly written...too much dull, repetitive sentence structure, so that I couldn't lose myself in the story or even feel for the heroine's past suffering.

It also repulsed me that hero had feelings for the heroine but sleeps with other women until he sees a sign that heroine is having a romance...then suddenly he is going to make the relationship happen, to be sure he gets her virginity. It's not that he's cheating because they aren't in a relationship, but he's still a jerk for selfishly stealing her youth and not making any sacrifice of his own to allow her some experience. He wasn't really waiting for her because he was with other women. He was really just waiting to pounce and manipulate her into losing her chance to find a better man. If he can be with other women,and it was for her benefit that he waited, then he should wait for her to find a better man whose feelings for her would keep him from sleeping with another woman. I think she deserved better and hero was scum for thinking he was entitled to her. His sleeping with other women wasn't some selfless plan about letting heroine have freedom and other experiences...he is just with another women but then sees heroine with a man so decides to lock her down. it was a plan to keep having his cake while he gets ready to eat hers too. My least favorite kind of guy. If he can sleep with other women while "loving" and being possessive of the heroine, he will likely do it down the road...I know that I'm pretty tough on men who sleep with other women while planning to take a heroine's virginity, but that is a huge sin in my book. I hated him.

    ATTENTION fans of OTT obsessive, possessive, and protective ALPHA MALE heroes!!! This is the book for you. The H is AMAZING!!! There were moments where he demanded that the h say she loved him. He was so desperate to hear it from her. I LOVED THAT!!! There was a moment where he thought the h had left him and he had to hold onto the dresser bc his legs gave out. He was also insanely jealous. This was a fabulous read and I can't wait to stalk this author from now on. ATTENTION fans of OTT obsessive, possessive, and protective ALPHA MALE heroes!!! This is the book for you.

    2.25- 2.50 STARS I totally forgot I read this book years ago, I did a quick skim and this would have been a solid 4 stars, if the hero had been celibate when he was "in love" with the heroine over the years. Heck, I would have even accepted if he had been celibate after the h turned legal, sadly "frustration" (his words not mine) beats being celibate for the woman you love.. :/ 2.25- 2.50 STARS I totally forgot I read this book years ago, I did a quick skim and this would have been a solid 4 stars, if the hero had been celibate when he was "in love" with the heroine over the years.

However, this was a DNF for me around the half-way mark. This rating business is so subjective and I feel that a lot of readers would enjoy this book. But it was not for me. The heroine, Elynn, was initially an interesting, quirky character. It was a hoot to read about her love of science, her obscure experiments, her adorable efforts to make small talk by painstakingly coming up with talking points. Even more admirable was her valiant effort to be resilient after the traumatic event in her past that made her not be able to enjoy life to the fullest. Then,a complete about-face. Elynn has been suffering emotionally for years after a severe physical assault left her in a state of almost constant panic when men get too close yet just after embarking on her first romance, she wants her lover to use restraints on her? Did not make sense and it seemed very contrived and not organic to the story so far. The hero, Alex, was your typical Alpha male character. His character was not written with the same dimensions as the heroine. It almost seemed like a cardboard cut out of Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades books, except he was not adopted and he is Greek. Everything else fit. He has unparalleled looks, a gazillion bucks or rather quids given that he resides in the UK, all the women are lusting after him but he has no emotional connection to any of his conquests (except for Elynn, whom he loves and lusts for secretly). He has numerous real estate holdings, fancy cars and private jets, is the head of a conglomerate etc. Also, very controlling and a complete Alpha. He is extremely over protective of the girl he secretly loves, going so far as to buy the building she lives in so he can monitor her comings and goings (hello, Christian Grey). Yet after she suffers a debilitating panic attack, he hightails it out of the country, leaving her to deal with it by herself? Another abrupt about-face. Because I could not relate to the characters due to their inconsistencies, their romance fizzled out for me and I could not continue with this book.

    Really enjoyed this OTT alpha male. I read a couple of reviews that said there was cheating here but there really wasn't. So he had a very few short relationships while he waited for her to grow up. Not cheating since they had no romantic relationship at the time nor had one been promised or implied. So if you like Lynda Chance you'll probably like this. It was well written and flowed smoothly. Can't wait for more from this author. Really enjoyed this OTT alpha male.

    This reminded me of Harlequin Presents, only kinkier with the stepsibling angle, more explicit sex, a much longer story, and a jealous-possessive Hero who does not need a skillet to his head too often. These are all good things and that’s why I’m giving this book 5 stars. Not safe though as hero was not celibate while waiting for the heroine to ‘grow up’. Not too much of a manwhore though.

    What is it with Brothers lately! Yeesh! LOL So the H in this book was EXTREMELY Alpha. Almost too much. *Gasp* WHAT???!! ***Sigh, I know, I know, but - it's how I feel. I did enjoy the story. I loved how it showed the progression of his obsession over the years. It wasn't too much of the "insta-love" thing, but definitely "insta-intrigued". The h is about 10 years younger than the H, requiring him to wait for her to "come of age". The H makes dramatic actions to show the h how he feels for her. The What is it with Brothers lately!

When she was 16, she was stalked and attacked by a boy that wanted her badly. Since then, she's been very intimidated and shy around men. The hook up of these two and continued luv'n throughout the book is definitely hot and the chemistry works well between these two. I didn't like that the H continued his man whoring until he was ready to take his h. I think he stopped a few months before they got together, although his "love" was spread for over 4 years. I get that he had to wait, but it still stunk. Especially for how OBSESSED he was. I also thought the add in of the famous starlet was OTT. For the reader it seemed like an annoying, useless add in. I recommend this for anyone looking for something quick, steamy and a sure thing. The OTT Alpha doesn't hurt either ;)

The idea of the story was fantastic, but I think that the book could have been better worked. Elynn is an amazing character. She is shy and kind of nerdy but she is honest and strong. The only part that I didn't like about her was her reaction to the declaration of love of Alex. (view spoiler)[ When Alex told her that he loved her for years and she got upset that he didn't wait for her. Well, why should he wait for her when they had never expressed their feelings? Alex didn't love any other woman in the meantime...yes, he had relationships but they were meaningless. I cannot get mad for his actions when he hadn't confessed his love to her. (hide spoiler)] Alex is not my piece of cake. I like a controlling guy when he knows what he is doing. Alex didn't feel like he knew what he was doing...he had his plan and his hopes that it will work out as he wished but he didn't give the vibe that he had everything under control. He also had too many secrets from Elynn, secrets that concerned her, in the name of protection that really annoyed me. The worse part for me in this book was the lack of connection. I felt their friendship but I didn't feel their relationship. I didn't feel their chemistry. That was actually the deal-breaker for me. The end of the book was nice. I loved the epilogue! I am crazy about them and this epilogue was a nice closure for this book.

He attends a family brunch to try to get along and ends up starting to fall for his very geeky new stepsister (Elynn) who is only seventeen. They end up becoming good friends, but Alex has been keeping Elynn at arms length because he is waiting for her to grow up and be ready for an adult relationship. However he is aware that she may never be ready because of a tragic thing that happened in her past. Initially I thought the beginning was super slow. I was just impatient to get to the good stuff. But once I got past that I did appreciate that buildup in the beginning. We see just how patient Alex is in waiting for Elynn and how they grow their friendship, though it feels a bit distant, but we realize that is all a facade on Alex's part because he fallen in love with his little stepsister and has become obsessed with her. I love this book because I'm a sucker for over the top alpha males who are utterly possessive of their woman. I loved the geeky quirkiness of Elynn along with the hints of the sensitive Alex underneath all his bluster. There were some parts that made me laugh a bit, especially after they both went to visit their parents in Venice because of something Alex did (or actually didn't do) while they were having brunch with them. Afterwards Alex hops on their speedboat taking them away from the city so that Elynn could yell at him in private. Elynn thinks something is going to happen, but Alex does something completely different making Elynn forget why she is mad at him. I don't want to give it away, but that is one of my favorite parts in the book. I've decided to stalk the author and have found the rest of the books in this series. The next book Confiscating Charlie (#1.5) is actually free on Amazon right now and The Singular Obsession Collection: Books 1-3 (#1-3) is on Kindle Unlimited now. Also, it looks like the 4th book will be coming out this spring. This is an author that I'm definitely going to start stalking like I do with Jordan Silver, Alexa Riley and C.M. Steele because no one can write over the top alpha men like they do!

    That was a fun smutastic treat 😁 I love all that ott-alpha craziness in my romance from time to time, and this book had just what I needed. I'll be reading more work by this author.

    I randomly found this book while scrolling Amazon one night. I ended up LOVING this book. This is one of those rare books that is pretty much perfect. It's a stepbrother romance but I loved how much of foundation was built between Alex & Elynn. Alex didn't rush her. Once he realized he had feelings for her, he built a solid foundation and waited until Elynn was ready for a relationship. And I loved that. And once he set out to really woo her...HOLY HOTNESS. I also loved that Elynn stood up to Al I randomly found this book while scrolling Amazon one night. I ended up LOVING this book. This is one of those rare books that is pretty much perfect.

I also loved that Elynn stood up to Alex. He's the alpha type that gave orders and expected them to be followed. Elynn was ok with him issuing her orders in the bedroom, but she wanted to be consulted about things outside of it. For example, he wasn't above setting out clothes for her for the next day. Or going over her head and telling her boss she was taking some time off. Elynn put him in his place and told him that they had to talk about those things, and that she could pick out her own clothes. And he actually listened. One of the best things about this book was the fact that there was no unnecessary drama. There wasn't a time when there was a stupid misunderstanding leading to an unnecessary breakup. Once Alex and Elynn were together, they were together. As I was reading, I was talking to a friend about this book and she looked up other reviews. Apparently in some other reviews, there's mention of Alex being with other women in the book. There are two instances where he is with other women, one he did sleep with her (we don't see it) and the other, he didn't. Here's why I didn't have an issue with that: In both cases, while Alex did have feelings for Elynn, they weren't together and there was nothing to indicate that Alex and Elynn were going to get together anytime soon. Since nothing had happened between Alex and Elynn at either point, I was ok with both scenes. This was such a good book, that I can't wait to check out other books by the author.

    I want to start my review off by saying that I didn't expect to love this story as much as I did. I was kinda thrown off by the idea of two step-siblings being together in anything other than a sibling way, but I must expect, this book isn't what I expected. First off, I focused too much on the fact that they were step-siblings and didn't focus on the fact that they were meant to be together. Honestly, after a few chapters I forgot they were even step-siblings because it didn't matter anymore.

First off, I focused too much on the fact that they were step-siblings and didn't focus on the fact that they were meant to be together. Honestly, after a few chapters I forgot they were even step-siblings because it didn't matter anymore. They aren't blood related, so I'm mystified at why I was hesitate to read it, I guess when we're used to thinking a certain way about a certain topic, we judge things, judging a book by it's cover, in a way, that we forget about the whole picture. I'm so thrilled that I read this book because it was wonderful and one of my top favorite books I have read this year! Trust me, this book is great! Alex has been in love with his stepsister, Elynn, since she was seventeen. She was always different than other woman he dated, but she also faced a awful ordeal before she met him which made her nervous and cautious of men. So he waited for the day that she would be ready for a relationship with him and loved her from afar. Elynn loves her step-brother, Alex. He is always there for her and she trusts him with her life, which isn't easy, considering her past. She knows Alex is affectionate towards her, but she has no idea Alex has feelings that go deeper than brotherly love. When she's twenty-one, she finally sees a new side of Alex only women he's been with see. And he wants her. Apparently he's always wanted her, but she just never realized it. Together, Alex and Elynn with find eternal happiness and discover love for the first time. But issues from Alex and Elynn's past will stand in the way of their happiness. Do they have a chance at a happily ever after together? Or is their love not meant to be. I really enjoyed this book and think that more people sound read it. It talks about a topic most people wouldn't read, which is weird, considering the topic isn't bad at all. As a person who thought this topic would be hard for me to read, I must admit, I was wrong and praise the author for writing such an amazing book! You definitely opened up my eyes to a lot of things! Alex, one of the main characters in the book, is amazing! Seriously, I love hearing what the guy in the book is thinking and love to see their reasoning for everything. It adds so much to the book. And the fact that the other main character, Elynn, is a bit of a nerd is awesome! I'm a nerd myself and I think more authors should write about female, and man, characters that have something unique and interesting about themselves that hasn't been done before. I found it neat that Elynn studied mushrooms as a hobby and as a career. All-in-all, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! I can't wait to read more books from this author and I'm so happy I gave this book a chance! I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a great romance novel! My favorite quotes: "Never say 'we need to talk' again. Those are the worst words you could ever say to a guy." "No wonder you didn't want to introduce any of them," Elynn teased when Alex pointed out his friends as they arrived. "You were afraid of the competition." she said. He growled. "None of those ugly bastards compares to me, and you know it." he said, reaching to hug me from behind.

    This was entertaining and enjoyable. The hero, Alex Hanas, is a man who knows what he wants but waits for her to be ready first. (view spoiler)[I didn't like the fact that he couldn't keep it zipped when he supposedly loves her.

(hide spoiler)] The heroine, Elynn, is mature for her age but is still ten years Alex's junior. I felt that the relationship may have been on more even footing if he was closer to her age but that was only a minor issue. Then we have the plot which was good but you knew who the "bad guy" was the whole time. The marriage seemed a little rushed since they seemingly just declared their feelings for one another. Overall, I really liked it.

    I went into reading this book blindly as not being familiar with the author. At first I didn't know what to expect and didn't know how to feel about step siblings but once I started reading it, I loved Alex. The step siblings did not bother me since it didn't happen while in the same household. Alex was a bit of an alpha (which I love) but not overpowering. I'm looking forward to reading more from Lucy Leroux. I went into reading this book blindly as not being familiar with the author.

    Super cute story and sweet loving hero. Some people were put off by his sleeping with other women while waiting for her to grow up. It didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I liked the cute little scene where she hits him with a pillow for not waiting for her. :) Some people don't like the whole step-sib relationship books but I don't mind that particular trope. :) Super cute story and sweet loving hero.

    This one didn't work for me on many levels. Far too much tell and not enough show. Time progressed a lot and the author told me the characters had chemistry, I just didn't witness it. The H wanted the h from a young age, but I didn't get that sense, it felt more like a business deal he didn't want to lose. I DNF and skimmed to see the ending.

He had thought that Mary's daughter was fat as she usually wore baggy sweatshirts or sweaters to hide herself, but on closer inspection he saw she was just as petite as her mother and she was almost smarter than him.

As time went on he observe his dad had more and more security, and discovered she was almost raped and beaten into a coma by a wealthy boy from the states!

Once released from the hospital, her mom relocated them to another state, then she accepted a position at Hanas Industries in London where she met and married her stepdad. Months later, she started getting calls on her cell but no one answered....... Ms. Leroux pens a beautiful story about love that was so gripping than it still runs around in her hear after the story long ended!!

    An Amazon freebie that sounded just right for my mood at the moment. This was actually a sweeter story than the cover/title implied (kinda like most Harlequin Presents novels), and though Alex did "make her his", he started out just having a big-brotherly (step-brother) interest in Elynn; he was introduced to her determined to dislike her, and found himself amused by her, and charmed by her nerdy-ness, and her vulnerability from her past freak stalker.

Personally, I don't know that the whole stalker thing even needed to be in the book. I don't think the story needed it, even though the end was entertaining. Over time, Alex became more possessive of his relationship with Elynn, and it was obvious to some that his willingness to above and beyond to make her happy meant that he had feelings for her that were more than brotherly. Even though I'm sure it felt sudden to Elynn, who remained oblivious to Alex's feelings, Alex was patient, and bided his time for years to make sure Elynn was in the correct frame of mind for another relationship (because of the stalker thing). It's not that Alex wasn't an alpha male-- he was. But, he was also very sensitive, patient, and kind. It was difficult to see how Elynn could not be in love with Alex, once he made his intentions known to her. I know that sounds awful to say, like Elynn had no choice in the relationship, but she had no other men in her life besides her gay friends from work. Elynn would've modeled any man against Alex, so it made a weird sort of sense that she would transfer her hero-worship of Alex into romantic love for him. I really liked this book, and it was well-written, sweet, and just hot enough to be not-too-sweet.
