SIGHHHHHHHHH! This. Man. *bites lip and rolls eyes* This was the perfect forbidden romance pick me up! Step Summer by Tanya Gallagher is HERE and honestly, Blake and McKenna are PERFECT for each other!
Forbidden romance is easily one of my fav genres. It’s definitely my guilty pleasure since I don’t read it as often as I wish I could. So when I do get a chance to sink into one, I rate it HARD! I was pleased by the in-depth writing by Tanya! This is my first read by her and SO did not disappoint! The tale weaved with that extra spice of forbidden ness in the book was TO. DIE. FOR!
The lust and angst almost had me. Blake and McKenna are so achingly compatible for one another, you almost forget their step siblings! It was so easy to get lost in this one and I just appreciate a good read that draws you in and doesn’t spit you out on the other side until well after you’ve finished the book! If that’s what you cling to in a romance, this read is for you!
Be prepared to get hot, not only from sunbathing on the beach, but the contents of this delightful romance :).
* I know Tanya via my RWA chapter, but she did not ask me to provide a review of her book.
McKenna, at the tender age of nineteen, already knows what she wants to do with her life. But everyone else in her life has different ideas. Until Blake, who makes her feel like she really could pursue her dreams. Not to mention he’s smoking hot.
But Blake isn’t exactly in a position to let McKenna fall for him as he’s fresh out of rehab, a bad relationship, and a career as a professional athlete that had turned from being something he loved into something that was feeding his addictions. So naturally, he is wary of letting McKenna become simply another addiction.
But mostly, they just can’t. Like, their parents are married to each other kind of can’t. Aside from the perceived taboo, McKenna feels like she’s on tenterhooks with her parents as it is. And Blake feels similarly, having leaned on them hard as he tries to get his life back together.
The heartfelt depth and emotion in their story immediately sets the stakes high, but their genuine connection and the intense desire they have for each other keeps you turning pages. It’s not just will they or won’t they. It’s when. Because the sexual tension was unbearably delicious, and I just knew when they gave in it would be epic (P.S. I wasn’t disappointed). But this book was obviously so much deeper than that, because I still cared what that would do to each of their futures. And to their family. Thankfully I wasn’t disappointed there, either. This was a well written, beautifully sexy and emotional story that I absolutely devoured. I’d call it a perfect summer read, but really it’s a perfect anytime read for romance lovers.
This is a NEW to me author & books! I appreciate my ARC and was hooked by the blurb mainly, plus the fact that I love me some forbidden romance that is still very sweet!
McKenna is a young lady who is torn in life. Not sure to either continue a dream her family wants for her or stay home and follow her dream of running a flower-shop. Therefore she stays at her family's summer house, to try and get her life in order. Enter Blake her step-brother who is in the same predicament, Needing to decide what and where to go next. What went from innocent flirtation and a familiar state, turned to heat.
There is a lot in here, secrets, mystery, romance, guilt, slow-burn, angsty, and oh so sweet! It's a perfect summer read to be honest. I am glad that I gave this a try and the writing style is just SMOOTH! I love those because it makes the story easy to read and the transitions perfect. The sexy scenes in this, again, also something that was perfectly executed! The characters may have been young, but mature enough even for me to be ale to read. (If you know me, you know how much I have issues with young characters and the immaturity!) This was excluded because there was a maturity to it's level!
RATING: 4.5 ★

I love me some forbidden romances. So I was excited to read Blake and McKenna’s story. Meeting at their parents wedding but not knowing that they were becoming step siblings.
It was pretty much lust at first site for both of them but McKenna couldn’t get Blake out of her head no matter how hard she tried to stay far away from him. She avoided him at family functions by going to her dads instead. But when she came home after working at her summer job, she got the shock of her life!
Blake never acted on his feelings for McKenna after learning she was his new step sister and their age gap. After walking in on his girlfriend cheating on him in his home, he needed a change. What he wasn’t expecting was to be spending his summer with McKenna. But now she is older and he is having a hard time fighting his feelings.
This was such a beautiful story! Just loved everything about Blake and McKenna. Tanya knows how to write steamy books, this was a different style then her other books but equally as good! Don’t get me wrong, there is PLENTY of steamy in this book!
