He told me to ‘settle, girl.’
He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
My Review –
4.5 Addictive and Hilarious Stars!!
Thank you so very much TRSOR Promotions for sending me a copy of Anti-Stepbrother!! I am honored and grateful!! 🙂
This was my second time reading Ms.Tijan’s work and once again she created one heck of a story!! I would say it’s a lighthearted read but it has a lot of depth to it that readers will love! It’s hilarious, heartbreaking, sweet, sexy, and addictive. Anti-Stepbrother hooked me from beginning to end and I hated that I was done with it. I didn’t exactly know how things were going to turn out which made me happy because i love the element of surprise! Summer and Caden’s story is so very entertaining and I couldn’t get enough of it. Ms.Tijan stole my heart and my breath from laughter! She’s definitely becoming a favorite author of mine!! I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!! 🙂
Summer Stoltz was a character whose world changed drastically in the span of a few short years. A step family was unexpected especially Kevin her stepbrother who was her crush. Going to College she thought she had everything figured out until she didn’t. A chance encounter with a guy she deemed an *sshole shouldn’t have shook up her world. I absolutely adored her as a heroine!! Her humor was quirky and flawless. I hated how she viewed herself and I seriously wanted to jump into the story and be her BFF because she was that stinking awesome. I liked how she stood her ground and said what was on her mind. She was crazy but in the best kind of way. I loved her friendship with Avery!! I hoped that in the end her heart would be unscathed she’d be happy as well as have no drama in her life.
Caden Banks was a character that dealt with things that no one knew about. Controlling his feelings especially his anger when it came to protecting those he cared for wasn’t easy. He had enough on his plate and didn’t need a girl to be brought into the mix but sometimes fate has other plans. During the beginning he was a mystery to me. As the story progressed I loved learning more about him and his sexy ways. He’s one of the first heroes I’ve never found annoying and that is rare. Yes, I could have smacked him once or twice but I truly adored him as a character. I liked the relationship that he had with his brothers. He was caring but not somebody to be messed with. My heart broke for him during certain points. Caden caught me off guard with the things he revealed but in a good way. I hoped in the end everything would work out for him and he wouldn’t push people away.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will catch your interest from the very start and leave you with a grin on your face once you are finished. I had to put down my Kindle a couple of times from cracking up so I wouldn’t drop it. It’s one of those feel good reads (Like I was having a bad day but this story made it much better). Noithings rushed but it isn’t slow to where others would get bored. Ms.Tijan’s writing was wonderful!! If you haven’t already One-Clicked this buy it Today!! I promise you won’t regret it!! Your book living heart will be happy you did! I hope you love it!! 4.5 Stars all around!! 🙂
He wasn’t looking at me any more. I wasn’t even sure he was really in the room.
I needed to leave this alone. He had given me the clues—looking away, his jaw clenching, pain like I’d never heard from him sounding loud and clear. My instincts were telling me to shut up, but I couldn’t. I had this burning need to know more about Caden. I needed to get in there, past his walls, and I wanted to understand him.
I wanted to help him.
Caden was hurting, and I wanted to take that away.
Caden turned his gaze to me now, and I felt branded by the pain I saw. His eyes were stricken. “Does it matter?”
“No.” My breath caught and held in my chest. I wanted to go to him, but I also wanted to slink away. I was stirring up his pain, but I had to know. “What happened, Caden?”
“Why do you have to know?”
“Because it’s hurting you.”
I made a decision, though I had no idea what the ramifications were going to be. I stood, my legs going numb and my stomach clenching, and I moved to his side. He leaned back, his head falling to the couch, and he watched me.
The need to ease some of his hurt outweighed the fear of what would happen next. Swallowing tightly, I stepped over to straddle him and sat down.
“What are you doing?”
He asked that softly, still holding his beer. I took it from his hands and put it on the stand next to the couch. Then I just sat there. He had to do the rest. I’d already made the first move.
I glanced down at his hands, feeling like an idiot. “What happened?”
“Why are you pushing this?”
I looked back up to find confusion warring with need in his eyes. He wasn’t pushing me away, so I sank further into his lap.
“You haven’t told anyone else about this.” It wasn’t really a question, but I saw the confirmation in his eyes. My chest tightened, thinking about whatever secret he held. “Please tell me.”
“No.” He shifted forward, and I braced myself, expecting him to push me away. He didn’t. His hands grasped the backs of my legs and lifted me so I was more fully on his lap.
I could feel him between my legs, and my breasts almost pressed against his chest. I waited. I wanted to see what else he’d say
“But not because I don’t want you to know,” he added. “Because it’s not my secret to tell.”
I nodded, my stomach doing somersaults now. “That makes sense. I can respect that.”
And there we were. His hands cupped my ass, and the pain in his gaze became something darker, something I felt too, something that began to turn off all rational thought.
“What are we doing here?” he questioned, his voice like a caress in itself.
I leaned forward, my gaze lingering on his lips. “I didn’t really think it through.”
“Still not thinking it through.”
“You’re okay with that?”
In that moment, the truth exploded in me. I wanted him. I wanted this—but it was more. I needed this.
I didn’t answer.
I closed the distance between us.
I didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
