Jamie just rocks the twist in her stories. I loved her stepbrother story that went beyond the usual. Ayden has suffered a great loss when her dad is killed in an accident and then lives a nightmare life with a horrible mother that needs a good swift kick. To escape the pain Ayden looks for a man every year on her birthday to share a steamy evening. She loses her virginity to one man and her heart to another. This gets really complicated when one is going to marry her mother and the other storms back into her life wanting more. Hunter just happens to be the first man's son. There's the complication times bazillion. Then on top of that poor AJ has a creepy stalker. I really did adore AJ and so wanted her to find her happily ever after with Hunter. I so loved their story.
I give A Step Two Close 5 hearts!
I used sex to help me forget.
To help me numb the pain.
Because for those few minutes of pleasure, I could shut it all off.
The reminders of all that I had lost. All that I had endured.
Of all that I saw die before my eyes.
I slept with a man I can’t get out of my head. It was supposed to be a one-time thing with no attachments and no commitments. No names were exchanged, no phone numbers swapped. And that was fine by me ... until I lay awake at night, dreaming about that man’s caress. Wanting and yearning to feel his touch once more.
But one day, my fantasies of seeing this man become an all-too-consuming, nightmarish reality. Suddenly, he is in my house, that cocky grin of his silently promising more to come.
And the reason being? His father is getting married to my mother. We are going to be family.
I am in the seven circles of hell. His look alone consumes my soul and makes me beg for more. He wants me and is determined to get me. I’m his obsession, and I’ve just become a slave to his infatuation ... to the games he likes to play. The games he knows will have me surrendering to his will.
But that’s not the only problem. That’s not the only reason I am living in my own personal hell.
The year before I met my soon-to-be step-brother, Hunter ... The year I made a decision that will ultimately end up destroying my very soul...
I lost my virginity to Hunter’s dad.
