The red hot summer she would never forget
From the author of Taming Blake comes this brand new standalone romance ...
I wish I’d never met my stepbrother, Chase. That summer changed everything. He was the first boy who ever made me feel alive. But just as soon as he came into my life, he vanished.
So what happened, Chase? Where did you go? Who did you become? Eleven years later, and I’m still searching for answers ...
Due to scenes and descriptions of an adult nature, this novel is only suitable for those aged eighteen years and older.
My Thoughts - Story
So, this one is a bit different than your normal “step” romance. This is a story of second chances…lies…deceit…and sweet romance.
I loved how this really didn’t revolve around the whole “step” thingy but instead dealt with why Chase ran away and how a relationship could be built strong again.
The only problem I had with this story is the ending and how rushed it seemed. I think I would have liked it to be drawn out more with more detail.
After Chase runs away a few months into their new family status and a breath stealing kiss, it takes 11 years for Charity to find him and make a play for him. As soon as Chase locks eyes with Charity, he wants her but something does seem familiar to him – he just can’t place it.
When Charity comes clean on who she really is – nothing can stop these two from coming together and battling their inner demons.
