Sure, this is a Step Brother trope, but that’s not where the fun is. It’s the banter and sizzle that make this dozen or so pages shine.
Crystal is a fun secondary character to Cara’s main character. The sarcasm really works between these two. And, the step-brother, Brad, well, he’s blunt, charming, and everything that one could want in a sexy encounter.
Who knows how this will all end up, but the ride is fun. Yet, again, I’d say to Ms. Sterling that if she can develop this much characterization and plot in a vignette, I would LOVE to see a novella, or, even, a full-length version.
Sex is explicit, so only 18+ here, please. No real taboo to worry about, though.
I was a beta reader for Ms. Sterling.
