Blackballed from my job.
Moved back to my hometown with my tail between my legs and family issues crushing my back.
Slinging drinks in a dive bar.
Yes, the past year has been hell. So when a man who’s temptation wrapped in golden skin and sin offers me one night of no-holds barred, dirty sex, I’m all in. I deserve it.
But now those few unforgettable hours have me facing blackmail from my own father: He'll pay for my mom's medical bills, but only if I never again touch the man who has quickly become my obsession.
Because the man? My obsession?
He’s my stepbrother.
* MY REVIEW
What do you do after you have been blacked balled from your job , you move back home and start slinging drinks in a dive bar . Cypress Winters has been through a lot in the past year . So when she is offered a one night stand with the man who occupies her mind most of the time . I mean what would you do if Jude walked into your life . A man made for sinning she jumps at the chance for a night of dirty sex . But in the light of day she has to come to the conclusion that she has to stay away from him for so many reasons . Will they be able to stay away from each other or will the passion of that one night bring them together and will they be able to conquer all the obstacles in their way .
Wow these characters kind of blew me away, they are well written and complex . Cypress well she has been through the wringer . After being black balled from her job, she has kind of been beaten down and she is at a cross roads . She lost her job because she stood up for herself against a company . Now she is working hard to keep her mom safe . There are moments you just want to wrap her up and hug her tight and tell her that life will get better . She has a strong will but is also really scared that she just might not make it . Now Jude well he is is just sex on a stick and i will say he is an alpha , direct, very determined and so dominate and smoking hot . There is also a softer side to him when he is around Cypress he wants to protect her and keep her safe . He does have a laid back style that brings you in and keeps you safe . Alone these characters are awesome but holy when they are together they are explosive . Trust me on this one ladies .
I sat down one evening and couldn't wait to dive into Jude's story . I couldn't wait to see where the author would take us concerning him . He is just such a big character and you just want to hug him and do naughty things to him . OK I will rein myself in here. Yes this is a step brother romance book , and yes there is lots of hot sexy sex and brooding men in this book and a heroine that is torn between the love she has and the obligation she has to her family . The author takes us on an emotional roller coaster ride . There are moments when you just want to slap each of them upside the head and then there are times you just want to hug them and tell them everything will be ok . Oh and then there are the moments where you will blush and fan yourself . You will love the story and the characters so much .You will get so invested with them . This is the second book in the series but you can read it as a stand alone . So if you want a hot read for a cold snowy night check it out , you will not be disappointed .
