Series: Her British Stepbrother #2
Tristan is a man who knows what he wants. And he wants Kat in his bed. All he has to do is convince her they belong together . . .
Kat knows the connection she and Tristan share is special. Her British bad boy is too much of everything: too hot, too arrogant, too irresistible to stay away from. He’s her addiction and one night with him isn’t enough.
That’s what hurts the most. They can’t date, can’t be a normal couple, not when their parents are getting married. Because now that she knows he’s going to be her stepbrother, no one can ever find out what they’ve done . . .
The Saga continues – and of course we know that it’s going to get oh so much more complicated. Kat was trying to stay away from Tristan to begin with given that he had a reputation and she was such an innocent, and well, now that there’s the added issue of their parents getting married, she’s running for the hills.
There is so much chemistry though between them that it’s a struggle to stay away from each other and they need to find the balance on how to do that. We see that as the main bits of this story – knowing that they want each other, but they can’t let their parents know since it’s taboo.
In addition to all that, we see that they have to also hide from the papps, and when they almost get discovered, it makes things more complicated – that’s a surprise that they don’t necessarily care for and one that comes up again at the very end of this 2nd book. it’ll be interesting to see how it plays out.
Tristan of course has another obstacle in the form of his father who’s called him back home early and who’s trying to exert his power and force on Tristan in a way that’s not ideal. Being of British Peerage, there’s the expectation that as an Earl, he’s going to marry someone of equal stature, and in this case, his father has plans for Tristan to marry someone that while he’s friends with, he doesn’t want to be with (especially since Kat’s in the picture). so that’s another branch of the story that i can’t wait to see play out.
So on that note, i’m looking forward to seeing what book 3 brings us and who gets hurt and how. Enjoy!
