Theirs was not a forbidden love…but was it a love never meant to be?
Cage knew he was bad. Bad to the bone. A cheesy description, but one that fit the underground fighter perfectly. He loved to fight, he loved to f***. Despite his reputation, he tried to stay away from trouble. He usually succeeded. Until the day trouble found him in the form of a curvy stepsister.
Abby Snow was a good girl. Straight A student, attending college on a scholarship and…a virgin. When her stepbrother is invited to the Hamptons for a true family vacation, Abby knew she was in for a summer of heartache. He was big and strong with a cocky attitude…he was so fine.
I will readily admit that this is the first book I have ever read about the whole step-sibling romance deal. I thought I would be so grossed out that I couldn’t enjoy the story. I was wrong however because of the way the story is written I didn’t really think of Cage and Abby as step-siblings. Cage never knew his father and always assumed he was not wanted. While Abby’s father died when she was young and her mother remarried, marrying Cage’s father.
I thought Cage was a bit of an arrogant jerk at first. He talks about his abilities with the women in the first few pages often and I thought it made him a jerk. However as the story progressed I realized that he wasn’t so much a jerk as broken. Never knowing his father, his mother overdosed when he was young and after ending up in the system he ended up on his own. He was lucky he wasn’t anymore screwed up. When his father finally finds him and asks him to come to the Hamptons Cage’s first thought is to say no. Yet his friend Frank makes him go. When he first arrives he is the manwhore that he seems to be right up until Abby steps onto the porch.
Even Cage admits that she is different. Abby is different too in that she doesn’t want to accept her step-father’s millions. She is happy in her regular clothes and attending college. She is immediately attracted to Cage and they both seem to dance all around their attraction for a while. Cage loves Abby’s innocence (yep she’s a virgin!) and her curves which she has been insulted for in the past. I love when Cage gets jealous and when Abby’s mother lets him know that she knows what is going on. Also the way both Cage and Abby come to the realization that they love each other. The ending was great as well because it showed how Cage had finally come full circle in his life. The sex was HOT! It really was and could that man talk dirty!
