make matters worse, the American gold digger had a kid a daughter named Elynn After months of avoiding it, Alex goes to brunch with every intention of giving his father s new family the deep freeze But he can t pull it off with Elynn s anxious green grey eyes locked on himThat was the day his life changedFour years later, Alex is as close to Elynn as a stepbrother can be But that s not enough for him He wants and he s done waiting I love it when the nerdy girl gets the hunk This book started out strong and I thought I had found another Beautiful Player, my favorite nerd girl Alpha Male contemporary romance by Christina Lauren However, this was a DNF for me around the half way mark This rating business is so subjective and I feel that a lot of readers would enjoy this book But it was not for me.The heroine, Elynn, was initially an interesting, quirky character It was a hoot to read about her love of science, her obscu I love it when the nerdy girl gets the hunk This book started out strong and I thought I had found another Beautiful Player, my favorite nerd girl Alpha Male contemporary romance by Christina Lauren However, this was a DNF for me around the half way mark This rating business is so subjective and I feel that a lot of readers would enjoy this book But it was not for me.The heroine, Elynn, was initially an interesting, quirky character It was a hoot to read about her love of science, her obscure experiments, her adorable efforts to make small talk by painstakingly coming up with talking points Evenadmirable was her valiant effort to be resilient after the traumatic event in her past that made her not be able to enjoy life to the fullest.Then,a complete about face Elynn has been suffering emotionally for years after a severe physical assault left her in a state of almost constant panic when men get too close yet just after embarking on her first romance, she wants her lover to use restraints on her Did not make sense and it seemed very contrived and not organic to the story so far.The hero, Alex, was your typical Alpha male character His character was not written with the same dimensions as the heroine It almost seemed like a cardboard cut out of Christian Grey from the Fifty Shades books, except he was not adopted and he is Greek Everything else fit He has unparalleled looks, a gazillion bucks or rather quids given that he resides in the UK, all the women are lusting after him but he has no emotional connection to any of his conquests except for Elynn, whom he loves and lusts for secretly He has numerous real estate holdings, fancy cars and private jets, is the head of a conglomerate etc Also, very controlling and a complete Alpha He is extremely over protective of the girl he secretly loves, going so far as to buy the building she lives in so he can monitor her comings and goings hello, Christian Grey Yet after she suffers a debilitating panic attack, he hightails it out of the country, leaving her to deal with it by herself Another abrupt about face.Because I could not relate to the characters due to their inconsistencies, their romance fizzled out for me and I could not continue with this book 2 CELIBACY ISN T FOR ME STARSI must admit, I was disappointed with this hero He said he has been in love with her for 4 years, but I say NOT And why you may ask He was still having sex with all those other girls Hey guys, he tried here but guess what Celibacy wasn t his thing Really Does anyone with a brain cell buy this bullshit I am not going to say it s easy not to have sex once you ve had it but the fact of the matter remains, if you love someone you stay true to them Therefore, I do 2 CELIBACY ISN T FOR ME STARSI must admit, I was disappointed with this hero He said he has been in love

he loved her at all I think he just wanted to keep his Virgin prize on the side while he f cked around with all the women he wanted The whole idea was an insult to the intellectual reader who understand that intercourse is not the only way a man can relieve himself Doing this is an insulting to the love he said he felt for the heroine However, if you let this issue go, then he was not a bad man because he looked out for her and tried to do what was right He was just a two faced hypocrite in my opinion I think she would have been much better off truly punching him in the nuts then hitting him with a pillow Seriously, my husband would at least find inching powder in his underwear or waxing off all his body hair Something Oh well, it s not a bad book just not great.If you can over look this issue, then this book wasn t bad Sadly, I couldn t because of the way it was written It felt wrong and like he was cheating Those are my thoughts This is hands down my favorite story with a step brother trope Everything about how it was handled to the actual characters themselves was done very well It doesn t hurt that the hero is one of my favorite types.Alexandros and his father, Costas, are rich and powerful and Greek Alexandros lost his mother at the age of 11 and assumed his father would never remarry When Costas is well into his 20 s his father falls in love with an American woman with a teenage daughter Alexandros assumes she This is hands down my favorite story with a step brother trope Everything about how it was handled to the actual characters themselves

his father would never remarry When Costas is well into his 20 s his father falls in love with an American woman with a teenage daughter Alexandros assumes she is a gold digger and protests the marriage causing trouble between him and his father After some time, Costas convinces Alexandros to attend a family brunch where he is forced to socialize with his new step mom and sister What he wasn t expecting was to be intrigued with Elynn, his step sister who is 17 He notices she is shy and wears bagging clothing but is extremely smart and beautiful and later learns she has suffered a traumatic event in her life I loved how the author cultivated the relationship over a span of years and how respectful Alexandros was of her age He knew he needed to wait for her to grow up before making a move while also still be an important person in her life He earned her trust and protected her so that when it was time, she would already have the bases of a strong relationship with him as well as time to heal from her past trauma Once he decided she was ready for that relationship, boy did the story heat up Alexandros is a very dominant man but he always held a part of himself back with her Once he decided she was ready, he charged full speed ahead Not everyone is a fan of an OTT alpha male, but if you are this is the story for you What I also loved was that since Alexandros gave her so much time to build their trust in each other, Elynn became aconfident woman While for the most part Alexandros would take complete control of their relationship, she always stood up to him when he pushed her past her comfort zone Despite the years it took for them to get together as a couple, I did not feel this story dragged on In fact, I pretty much read this book straight through, and this is going on my top favorites list Great story I found this to be really poorly writtentoo much dull, repetitive sentence structure, so that I couldn t lose myself in the story or even feel for the heroine s past suffering Just very simplistic and childish in terms of the writing, and too much was told rather than shown I get the comparison to Lynda Chance, but I think her writing is a bitmature and developed It also repulsed me that hero had feelings for the heroine but sleeps with other women until he sees a sign that heroine i I found this to be really poorly writtentoo much

women until he sees a sign that heroine is having a romancethen suddenly he is going to make the relationship happen, to be sure he gets her virginity It s not that he s cheating because they aren t in a relationship, but he s still a jerk for selfishly stealing her youth and not making any sacrifice of his own to allow her some experience He wasn t really waiting for her because he was with other women He was really just waiting to pounce and manipulate her into losing her chance to find a better man If he can be with other women,and it was for her benefit that he waited, then he should wait for her to find a better man whose feelings for her would keep him from sleeping with another woman I think she deserved better and hero was scum for thinking he was entitled to her His sleeping with other women wasn t some selfless plan about letting heroine have freedom and other experienceshe is just with another women but then sees heroine with a man so decides to lock her down it was a plan to keep having his cake while he gets ready to eat hers too My least favorite kind of guy If he can sleep with other women while loving and being possessive of the heroine, he will likely do it down the roadI know that I m pretty tough on men who sleep with other women while planning to take a heroine s virginity, but that is a huge sin in my book I hated him
