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.

Review by Lorena
I got sucked in from the moment I sat down and started reading this book until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer and finished the whole book in one sitting.
It's crazy how you meet a man, lose your virginity to him in a one night stand and you find that he was pretty freaking amazing for a first time and then you meet another man and have another amazing one night stand and for sure you know this guy gets imprinted in you and you just can't get him out of your mind and or system.
I've read some pretty scandalous step sibling books but damn, one about a father and son....not until now! What will happen once secrets unfold? Will it work out for Ayden and Hunter or will it destroy them?
The banter back and forth between Hunter and Ayden was entertaining. I loved how they kept at it, playing their little games back and forth. It was so damn hot to read those sexy scenes back and forth between them, that at times I actually felt my cheeks blush.
Ayden suffered at the hands of her mother, her mother did nothing but constantly remind her how she was responsible for her father's death. She always blamed her and Ayden believed she was to blame for her father's death and so she tolerated her mother's abuse time and time again.
This book had it's twists and turns that were suspenseful.
I have to give it to Jaimie Roberts, she did another amazing job with another amazing book. The synopsis to her books always intrigue me and once I read the books I can certainly say that I'm never disappointed!
Total 5 star read for me on this one!
