Tour-Review, Excerpt and Giveaway: Stranded with My Stepbrother by Madison Collins

Stranded with My Stepbrother
By: Madison Collins
Releasing Oct 12th, 2015


A standalone taboo romance. No cliffhanger. 18+

On the way to our parents wedding in the mountains, the mother of all snow storms attacks, leaving me stranded in a remote cabin with my new stepbrother.

My hot as hell, I-need-to-change-my-panties because-they’re-soaked, cocky asshole of a stepbrother, Bentley McAllister.

The kicker of it all?

The only items he's packed are liquor and condoms, and he’s looking at me like he wants to put both to good use.

My name is Sierra, and my libido can only take so much.

“Listen, princess.” I lift her chin toward mine, meeting this gorgeous big blue eyes.  “I’m not sure if you noticed, but we’re stranded together in the middle of f*cking nowhere, with only each other to count on.  You can fight me all you want, but there’s one thing you need to understand.  I’m going to protect you.  I’m going to take care of you.  And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m six-foot-four, and probably have a hundred pounds on you.  My body is going to produce a lot more heat than yours.  Now calm the f*ck down, and let me get you warm.  Got it, sweetheart?”  Her fighting stops immediately. 

She nods, coyly, blinking those baby blues at me, all of her fight disappearing.  “Got it.” Her voice is small, and I suddenly feel like a d*ck. 

“Good. Glad we’re on the same page.” I tug her body closer so we’re pressed tightly together, and I hold her to my chest, wrapping her in my arms. A contented little sigh escapes her lips. The top of her head doesn’t even reach my chin. She packs a lot of sass for such a small thing.  I inhale, and breathe in the scent of her shampoo. The smell of vanilla and lavender fill my nose.  Damn, who knew that combination could be so perfect?  It’s intoxicating and I can feel my body slowly start to react to the smell and the images my mind starts to produce.  The way her slight curves mold to my body serves to warm me up pretty damn quick. 

Those of you who devour stepbrother romances will most likely do the same with Stranded with My Stepbrother.  It's got a classic setup (if a bit contrived) to get Sierra and Bentley alone together, stretching their circumstances to allow for what fans of the genre are waiting for...the hookup.

Bentley is your typical alpha playboy/manwhore type, but also exudes a protective vibe towards Sierra, and I thought he perfectly fit the stepbrother romance mold.  I found Sierra to be a bit on the immature side, and felt more like she was in it for the physical aspect and nothing more.  Together, Bentley came across as the more realistic and committed of the pair and I preferred his character much more than Sierra's.

The story goes by pretty quickly, and I'd really prefer to have found out more about where their relationship was headed than to have had the story end where it did, but overall this was a fast read that entertained me for a while and satisfied the itch to read something in the stepbrother romance genre. This does fall squarely into the 18+ category for adult language and sexual scenes, and fans of the genre should enjoy this quick look at Bentley and Sierra, though you may be left wanting more at the end.  3 stars for Stranded with My Stepbrother!
