Max and Chelsea couldn't deny their instant attraction, which meant trouble.
Their parents would never approve, but who said they had to know.
It all started with one kiss and a weekend alone…
Him: I never wanted a stepsister but my father dropped the news when I returned from vacation. I told him he was twenty years too late for the whole sibling thing. I hated the thought of her until we met and then I couldn't get her out of my head.
Her: When my mother told me she was going to remarry, I died inside. She moved us to the suburbs in a perfect little neighborhood but I didn't want to be there. I knew my mother's fiancé had a son that was close to my age but I didn't want anything to do with him until he rescued me from my abusive boyfriend. Somehow with his prince charming good looks he had become my own personal knight in shining armor.
Review by Lorena
Something about these step sibling novels always intrigue me. I like the whole forbidden aspect of it and how they feel like they can't be together because their parents are together. I know it doesn't sound right nor do people think it's right for step siblings to get together. But in reality, they aren't anything to each other, so why can't they be together right!
Max knows his parents haven't gotten along with each other for a long time and is just waiting for them to drop the bomb that they're getting divorced so when it does happen, he's not surprised at all. He figured it was just a matter of time before it happened and he's okay with it. But what Max doesn't see coming is that his dad already has someone else when he gets back from NY after visiting his mother and he's not happy about the news he receives.
Chelsea is not a very happy camper knowing that her mother is getting married. She loved their happy little life just her and her mother. But when Max's dad comes in the picture it makes Chelsea a little bit more rebellious.
Max and Chelsea finally meet and Max instantly feels a surge of desire for this girl. He's never felt that before and he feels like he wants to protect her when he sees that's she's being manhandled by her boyfriend. Max comes to the rescue and defends Chelsea from the alcoholic boyfriend and abusive boyfriend that she has. From that moment, Chelsea feels protected and that's something she's never felt before.
Max and Chelsea's chemistry is instant and they want to know each other, experiment with each other. Their only problem and/or concern is what will their parents think?
I enjoyed this first installment and I'm actually looking forward to reading the second book. I love cliffy's because they always leave me intrigued and wondering what is going to happen next. I do want to continue reading this series because I want to know what's going to happen. Are their parents going to approve of them having a relationship? Is Chelsea's ex-boyfriend going to come back in the picture and be a threat to their relationship? Talk about some unanswered questions that need to be resolved!
I definitely would recommend this book, it was sweet and short and to the point for the first part of this series. It may have seemed a bit rushed but we get the jist of it, at least I did!
Totally 4.0 stars for this step-sibling read!!
