Hooked: A Stepbrother Romance by Iris Parker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
having been apart for thirteen years, it doesn't take much for Emilia to get angry when she finds out the one person is making the center survive for a while longer is also her stepbrother. a lot has happened since they last saw each other. he's a renowned rugby player, she worked at the center, trying to help less fortunate kids stay out of trouble.
their relationship is rocky and fragile at best but even those thirteen years apart can't stop the chemistry Simon has felt from the first time he saw her. personally this is where i find the big hole in this story, you get a lot of hints at what a bastard he was towards her, trying to cover up his real feelings but we're never really told what really happened. you have to read between the lines to make an educated guess.
despite this one set back i did find this was a good read, emotional and full of conflicts.
was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
