The Best Parts:
This story is intriguing just from the description, but that’s because I love step-brother romances. And this one is set up a little bit different, because Royal knows right off the bat that he can’t have his girl, but she just can’t seem to understand that.
The tension makes this book, and that is mainly what this story is about. The push and the pull between Royal and Noelle, now this sin’t a bad thing because it benefits them more then it hinders their relationship. This story is about accepting that in some people’s eyes you may be bad, but then there are others who will always see the good in you.
Royal is your typical bad boy and Noelle is your typical good girl, the perfect couple.
The Worst Parts:
Now I do have to say that my one issues with this book did put a hinder on my reading it, at first I was just like nah, my mind is going crazy, and then it happened again, and again. The Sex. Yes you heard me, I had a problem with the sex. It seemed that every damn time Royal and Noelle had sex their parents were still in the house, when it was at her house, when it was at his house, every damn time. Like people can hear that, and it never mentioned that the parents left, nope, and they weren’t quiet either. I mean my parents were not all up in my sex life, but they sure as hell didn’t want to hear that shit.
Now this may not effect other readers, but in my thought process something should have been said or they should have made mention to keep quiet, just to give a little justice to the scene, rather than just going at it like two horny rabbits.
I truly did like this book. I loved the layout and setup of it, and it was fun and enjoyable to read. Royal’s attitude kept you on your toes and Noelle’s naiveté kept you reading just so you could figure out the good she saw in Royal.
