Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

The big brother's gut churned with rage. Every protective instinct urged him to choke the life out of the lecherous bastard who wanted to become his sister's lover. He resisted the urge because it is a near physical impossibility to choke yourself to death. So he seethed with impotent rage, even as he burned with potent craving.

As the flames rose higher, a small voice emerged from the deepest recesses of his consciousness. "There's no blood tie and no legal tie. You drew a line. You can erase it." He squinted in disgust. Even the inner demon attempting to excuse the inexcusable sounded aroused.

Just the sight of her in profile, raising her long skirts to expose her shapely legs made him throb. She tossed back her head to laugh as she landed, and a wild gust of wind billowed under the front of her skirt, tossing it up until it lay around her shoulders. Jake started to sweat and tremble as heat stole his composure. His rapt gaze followed the long lush lines of her legs to her thighs and then to the gates of paradise. Satan must have inspired her to wear the sheer drawers that highlighted more than hid the wild nest of black curls.

The couple of seconds that passed before the wind died down enough for her to gather her skirts were the longest and the shortest seconds in the annals of recorded time. The beat of his rampant erection became drums heralding his descent into hell. The forbidden fire kindled so rapidly that it blazed past the boundaries of his control to become an inferno his formidable self-loathing could not quench.

As she turned, she reached to withdraw several of the midnight locks that escaped her upswept hair to fall into the deep "V" of her purple gown's neckline. The dress matched the eyes sparkling with the joy of her homecoming. The lover thought of the darker fire that would light her gaze as she climbed the mountain of passion to perch with him at the summit of --- no, that could never happen.

After she tamed her skirts, she turned towards the house, and tried to repair her hair. But the wind and her impatience made the task impossible, so she removed the pins from the wild mass, and allowed her the thick black mass to fall free. It fell to curve around her firm buttocks like his hands would when -- damn it Jake - stop it. But it got worse before it got better, because her attempts to tame her locks dislodged the neckline of her dress, and her breasts nearly overflowed their confinement.

Jake licked his lips, and then licked them again, imagining his approach to that bounty. His tongue would lick every inch of flesh teasingly before his mouth fastened to the pebbled nipples and -- he was doing it again. He commanded himself to get a grip, but lost it a second later when she reached inside her neckline to withdraw one of the long locks wound around her luscious globes.

Jake could hear his own breathing as he saw himself taking the ends of that hair and tickling her nipples until she spread her thighs. Then he'd move lower to tickle the lips of her cleft until the lock was coated with the moisture of her need for his ... no. Forbidden. Turn around you pervert, he thought, but she'd remembered that her bodice was askew, and reached up to tuck her breasts back inside. He stumbled on legs that did not want to support his weight as he saw himself lifting her skirts while he unbuttoned his jeans and freed his staff to lunge inside her wet, aching...damn it, stop. No more.

As she mounted the steps to enter the house, he sought refuge and camouflage for his badly tented trousers behind the bar. Closing his eyes, he pictured the scrawny tomboy with the bad haircut and all the allure of a stick. Where did she go? He was prepared for her return. And where did the exotic temptress come from?

Just last night he and his brothers had joked that they would likely have to lasso somebody clumsy enough to miss his chance at escape and haul him to the altar. As though they'd been privy to his thoughts, which they certainly were not because he was still standing and wasn't bloody, his younger brothers began to comment on her changed appearance.

"It's a good thing I've been working on my right hook," Josh commented.

"Yep. We better check our side arms too," Jared added.

"SHUT UP! BOTH OF YOU!" Jake snarled, poured himself a shot of whiskey, and tossed it back in one shot.

Jake stood frozen, holding his shoulders erect, as though his formidable 6'3" height would intimidate the lover who crawled out from some dark, hidden place. He gripped the whiskey glass he didn't remember emptying. His half-lowered lids failed to disguise the smoldering need in his dark chocolate eyes. As though eager to leave its creamy brown brethren, and perhaps the bastard it graced, a single chocolate lock sprawled across his forehead. His brow furrowed as he swabbed his free hand across his eyes as though that would fix his problem. It wouldn't because the problem was far from his eyes.

What had happened to him?

The minute he saw Jessi, the beast inside the man woke up and roared. Roared at the wrong prey. He couldn't get hard from staring at Jessi. No legal tie, no blood tie, okay he'd give the little voice that much, but she was his sister by word and by deed. Why then had his body responded so instantly to the siren's call of the temptress who wore his sister's soul? Somehow, she'd awakened the lover within the man she would call brother.

He could not shake the thought - where had his sister gone?

MY REVIEW IS ACTUALLY NEGATIVE 5 STARS (or whatever are the most negative stars can be awarded).

I read this book for free through I would have asked Amazon to refund my money had I paid for it. In fact, I think that the author owes me for the sickening, emotional distress she left me with after trying to read this absolutely disgusting book.

Is it not rape when a victim is drugged continuously, stolen by their siblings and delivered to a gang of rapists who proceed to inflict all of their twisted, demented sexual depravity over and over for hours and hours, against the will of the poor victim (who is continually drugged with a supposedly impossible-to-resist aphrodisiac that renders their body unable to do anything but seek satisfaction), forcing the victim to perform sex acts on multiple people even as their mind tells them it is not what it wants, then bringing the victim's loved one to witness the depravity into which the victim has been forced but which looks to the loved one like the ultimate betrayal, so much so that the victim is literally unable to stop having sex with multiple partners despite knowing that their loved one is witnessing this and that it will destroy their loved one and any possible future together, and the siblings "feel bad" because it went far further than they had planned but they still bring the loved one (they don't want the two together, so this is their brilliant plan to break the two up), and then they ride off leaving the victim to continue to be gang raped in every possible way????!!!!

This stomach-turning, horrific, explicitly described gang rape went on for page after page after page after page.

Spoilers included. This book had the potential to be good. Likable main characters. Passion and heat between the H and h. Possessive jealous hero who was in love with the h. A little forbidden element to the story. And then the author ruined the story.

She had the H's brothers betray him making sure that he lost control of his actions to point he engaged in deeming smex acts with prostitutes - including making him want back door action. Not only was the H sexuallly abused for three days but his upstanding brothers made sure the h saw him during one of these moments. The author could have done other things to create drama that did not involve betraying the H and h. If she had to have them break up she could have had the h see the H at the whorehous just before something happened or make it seem like something happened when it did not. Instead there was an overwhelming amount of pages that described these scenes with the prostitutes. It seemed like there were more of those scenes than the smex scenes between the
H & h.

I thought the main characters were too forgiving of the brothers. Also even though I really liked the H and felt sorry for him because of what was done to him, I could not get the pictures out of my head of those terrible scenes. I know that is a bad reaction because he was a victim but I still felt that way. Also even though the h only saw a small portion of what H was made to do, if I was I don't know if I could get the images out of my head, continuing a smexua relationship with him. That is terrible because he truly was a victim. If I was him I don't know if I could get past it either. I believe it could destroy me.

I am upset at not only the author but myself for not reading the reviews before buying this book. I will not make the mistake of buying any more of her books.

there were several things wrong with this book first there were several violent and unnecesarrily graphic rape scenes which i had not expected also there was too much contention over main characters relationship yea jake helped raise jessi and had once thought of her as a sister but she wasnt his sister and though it was mentioned repeatedly no one acknowledged it and they made so much of a big deal over the incestuousness of the relationship even thuogh there wasnt any that i started feeling guilty for wanting the lovers together also the lenghths the other characters went to to keep the lovers apart resulted in some nasty rape scenes and made it so there were very few decent characters spare yourself and dont bother with this one

Loved it - a little controversial - makes you stop and think! No black and white or perfect characters here... It made me question my opinions and beliefs about love and what it means and I finished with a new perspective and a feeling of hope. Not only is it an entertaining read, but if you are willing to look a little deeper, you can take more out of it than just a good story.
