Wow! This book was HOTTTTTTTT! I ran across this book on Pinterest and am so glad I did. I felt like I was on the roller coaster with Alyssa with Mace. One minute he is frustrating, the next sweet, and the next stand-offish. Donovan swept me up and took me on a great ride on page one. The book is as bit predictable but like any good book or movie, I just keep wondering about the next event and move on. I highly recommend this book and love all the characters. Morgan is a force to reckoned with and would love to hear how her weekend went at the end. I would love just one more follow up but am happy with the end. Great story and storytelling.

Okay not great and definitely not expecting that kind of stepbrother story....
I never thought I'd say this..but I couldn't finish this book because the content was so beyond twisted that it crossed the boundary into evil for me. I've read some seriously messed up stuff. Studying abnormal psychology for fun in college kind of messed up stuff and I couldn't finish this book. There's just something about incest even if only implied incest that makes me sick. I also didn't like the male character him being a pimp and the way he treated women including his step sister was just twisted and wrong. I couldn't buy him as a loving son when he treats women that way..I just no, that was too unbelievable for me. I found the female character to be weak, needy, and lacking in self-esteem ripe for her step brother to abuse. I'm not saying the book was poorly written just that I myself don't find any reading pleasure in those kinds of situations.
✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ ⭐ ⭐ Provided by Author in Exchange for an Honest Review ⭐ ⭐ Judging a Book by it's Cover: Monochromatic blue-grey scale. Text fonts are legible. Lacks the necessary "pop" to catch and keep the eye. Synopsis was just enough to interest and have me agree to reading it for Ms. Donovan. Looking Deeper: Alternating First-Person POVs, clearly defined - easy to follow. Smoothly written and silky flowing text, it's hard to believe this was written by a #DebutAuthor! Mace and Alyssa were step-siblings, but had not lived under the same roof very much since Alyssa was shipped off to boarding school and only came home on major holidays and the summer. During the summers, they'd grown closer, but were still made to keep a distance. Over the years, Mace became resentful of Alyssa's "Princess" treatment while he was expected to comply with some dirty work business. After the death of their parents, the only contact they had was the quarterly meeting at the lawyers. Alyssa's string of bad luck brought the two together once again and she was not about to let him go this time. The characters were very well written and had just the right amount of depth to them to make them interesting and fun without feeling to heavy and complex. Their chemistry was entertaining. Self-doubt, past recriminations, pre-conceived notions and miscommunication got in their way more than once, but they worked through it in believable manners that were age- and situation- appropriate. There was a small number of secondary cast members that helped to fortify any weaker parts. The only time I felt that the writing was "less" was during the sexual content scenes as a climax was approaching, the writing seemed to lose quality at that moment and revert to "co-ed male" mode. (Just my opinion, though). Otherwise, the dialogue and cast interaction was amazingly smooth, natural and believable. The plot flowed so smoothly, I was truly surprised to see that this was written by a Debut Author. There really was no point of major predictability, not even with Dr. P. [trying to avoid any name drops or spoilers]. Morgan's final move was a nice touch. The ending provides a quick and painless conclusion that is solid and satisfying. Overall, this is a Stepbrother book, but much more. I'd recommend it to friends.** Note - While the plot does contain elements of the escort business and subsequent views and treatment of prostitution and whores, No explicit sex is detailed.---------------------------------Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.3 ~ Stars: 4---------------------------------
I enjoyed reading this book, which is the complete series about Mace which was called Pimp when the first book came out. This new indie author is spreading her wings and expanding her library of books she has written. I like a book about a man swooping in and saving a woman, but in this book, Alyssa is a strong willed woman who thinks she knows where she is going and what she wants to accomplish. Her feeling for Mace, her stepbrother have always been there and strong; she just didn't realize how much she really cared for him.Mace, has always done his best to look out for Alyssa, as she was younger and more vulnerable."Click, click, click- more quick photos. Morgan has me changing in and out of lingerie as quickly as I'm losing my innocence." "Getting a blowjob from my stepsister might end up screwing with my head for the rest of my life.""There are feelings I have when I'm with her that I can't ignore."The author gifted this book for comments and an honest review.
I really loved this series! How sweet Mace was being but Alyssa thought he was a jerk. I wasn't sure how they would work out. I did like the ending and the added content from the first seriesI highly recommend these books from this author
