When romance turns you on in a monster way + giveaway

My latest guilty pleasure is Monster Stepbrother. Brace yourselves for an intense romance, book buddies! ;o)

Maya and Oliver meet as stepsiblings when they're very young, but it's not until a few years later that their bodies and attitudes are ripe enough to spark fatal attraction between them. That's a good point. Through taunts, tease and violence revenge, they embark on an obsession of a forbidden, lustful nature.

At first, it was fun to watch them fight each other, nag each other because of their unfulfilled issues, but when it all exploded, I thought there was some kind of redemption for Oliver after all the suffering he puts Maya through. To my surprise, it all went to hell after a tiny glimpse of hope.

I couldn't stop reading though.

Chapters don't follow a lineal timeline, but present and past are mixed so that adds an extra taunting quality to the story. With a fast and furious pace, the story just sucks you in.

The forbidden attraction to each other turns them reckless and angry. There was a hypnotizing quality to the words that describe this consuming relationship. Oliver had some dark emotions that he kept hidden from Maya except to pour them into submitting her to his will. And the poor girl becomes his slave, oblivious to everything but her addiction to him.

Still, things kept surprising me. There was a turn of events I hadn't foreseen and it all changed so much!

Even though the writing is direct and simple, it conveys the crazy emotions these two people struggle with. Pain, secrets, loss, insecurity... they all strangle them into hurting each other and themselves. I felt sorry for their blindness to how much they belonged together. And oh the steamy times! Harsh, but hot. 

To my mind, there was too much use of the F word. I think there should be a limit to it, some is good, too much is tiresome. Nevertheless, the story is crazy, sexy and entertaining to the point of obsession. Read it, for f's sake! ;o)

Monster Stepbrother

Author: Harlow Grace
 Release Date: February 9, 2015

His dark obsession runs deep.

How does a girl go from being her Daddy’s precious baby doll to feeling like a filthy whore?

Easy really. When my father remarries it changes the course of my life and everything becomes . . . complicated.

My new stepbrother is a monster who hates me. Unapologetic, controlling and brazen he’s intent on making my life a living hell. Blackmails me into doing things I never thought I’d do. Illicit things. 

Oliver King makes the rules. He f*cks me whenever he wants. How he wants. Where he wants.

My head screams this is wrong, yet I can't resist giving in to forbidden desires.

I’m his possession, his toy — his ultimate pleasure.

He’s never letting me go. I’m his dark obsession.

My dirty addiction to my stepbrother grows to a dangerous level. Am I sick to crave more from the man who has made me his slut? Or should I escape and run as far away as possible? 

My name is Maya Childs and this is my story.
