Criminal by Alex Abbott

This genre is somewhat out of my normal reading range. I do not usually care for criminal intrigue romances. However, this story is well written and has a very hot romance between Abigail and Kaiden. They have been in lust (unspoken love) for each other since their teens. Kaiden left her because he felt she deserved better and at that time the stigma of step love was very much alive where they lived.

Then Kaiden was arrested and their parents took Abigail’s college fund and mortgaged their home to pay his bail money. They lost their home and Abigail was left homeless. She found Kaiden and begged him to take her in until she could save enough money to get her own place. He treated her badly and she thought she hated him for costing her the chance of college.

But deep inside (where they refused to admit it), they were still so attracted to each other they were dying from desire and love. Despite trying to protect Abigail, she ends up being a pawn between Kaiden and his criminal cohorts. Both are in the desert to be executed, but fight their way out. Kaiden suffers some broken ribs and other injuries, but they do escape, for the time being.

They find a motel where they had stayed as a family years before. There was only one room with one bed. Abigail struggles and keeps telling herself it is wrong, but eventually they both give in to their instinctual desires. Abagail is a virgin since she only wanted Kaiden to deflower her someday. Earth shattering, really hot, unprotected sex follows as well as throughout the rest of the book, The 3rd act of the book is more heart grabbing (with red hot sex from time to time) than the first 2 acts but nothing from that part can be revealed in a review.

Exhilarating story with lots of hot scenes!! I wouldn't wish the ups and downs and challenges these two have to face on anyone. Their love drew them together but fear of societal rules made them make the wrong choices. And now a bit about the story...

Abigail had nothing left. Kaiden had left three years ago, her parents were dead and her college fund empty. What is a girl to do? Luckily she gets her step brother (Kaiden) to let her move in, but the feelings start to surface hard and fast. Can they resist again? Or will they die trying?

Favorite passages:
- His house, his rules. That’s his motto.
- "But if you eat with the pigs, Princess, you can't be surprised when you get a bit dirty."
- I'm completely and utterly alone, and the sensation is at once comforting yet so alienating.
- I've never been in trouble before. Never even been sent to the principal’s office. But now I'm in jail, being threatened with some half-baked vagrancy charge.
- He's bruised and broken, but still, he wants me. Needs me.
- "I'll be back, Princess! Don't doubt your Prince Charming,"
- "Princess, I know I don't deserve you, but I want to. More than anything."
- "There's no light or joy in my life without you, Princess."

Format: Paperback
This is not your typical step-brother romance!!!

Kaiden and Abigail are step-siblings. Ever since he came into her life he has been her hero and during one particularly disappointing birthday party her prince charming. As they grew older however the feelings they began to have were not exactly brotherly or sisterly.

Kaiden left home at 18 because of his feelings for Abigail. He knew it was taboo in the neighborhood they were raised in. People would not understand, and he wanted her to have a chance at a normal love. Then he feel in with a bad crowd, and needed help from his parents. They had mortgage their house, and use her college fund to post his bail. Then her parents died, and Abigail had nowhere to go but to Kaiden's.

Kaiden takes her in, but he pushes her away. They are both still fighting their attraction for each other. Neither will tell each other of their feelings though. Kaiden still wants to do nothing but protect Abigail, but of course in the way of guys and books has to go about it in all the wrong way.

When they finally do get together through some catastrophe it is amazing, and what will drive them apart will be telling as well. You will have to read the book to see that for yourself however.

This is a standalone book, with a great resolution.

I was given this free book to do a review. Abigail and Kaiden are stepbrother and sister. They always had feelings for each other. Kaiden left a few years earlier. When their parents died abigail asked Kaien if she could move in with him until she got on her feet. He has always had feelings for her just like Abigail had feelings for him. He was looking towards spending three years in jail for doing something for Ryder who owns a bar and do gets Kaiden to criminal acts for him. Abigail gets a job at the bar and Ryder threatens Kaiden with hurting Abigail if he does not keep doing his dirty work. Great read. Very instering.

I received an ARC for an honest review. This author was new to me and I am glad I've been introduced to her. This book was raw, intense, and gritty. You have this love/hate relationship with Kaiden(much like Abby!). He went to great lengths to get away from her. Poor Abby is so out of her element in her new circumstances but she struggles through. These are strong characters whose layers you get to see as the story develops. Well worth reading.
