One of my biggest guilty pleasure reads is that of stepbrother romances!! I have a bunch on my TBR both on Amazon & Goodreads, so I thought I would share some for this week's TBR Thursday!
Before we get started, let me tell you about my FAVORITE stepbrother series, EVER!!!
It's Stepbrother with Benefits by Mia Clark.
This is the taboo sexy A F tale of Ethan and Ashley. They are only suppose to satisfy each other's needs for one week but will that one week be enough?
This series is broken up into seasons (yah know, just like a TV show) and there are currently 3 series with 17 books. Don't be scared by that! The books are extremely fast reads and super fun! They are full of hot, hot passion and of course the crazy sensual taboo nature of a stepbrother hookin' up with his stepsister. What I like about this series (other than the storyline itself) it's almost as if Ethan and Ashley are talking to YOU the reader. You feel like such a part of the story and that makes it even more fun!
Stepbrother with Benefits
by Mia Clark
"Friends with benefits, stepbrother with benefits, what's the difference?"
"Um, we're not even friends, Ethan?"
Rule #1 – It's only supposed to last for a week...
Ethan is a cocky, arrogant jerk. He's always been that way. I'll never understand why girls trip over themselves just to be with him. Don't they realize he's going to ditch them in a week?
Yes, he can be nice when he feels like it. It's true that he's ridiculously attractive, too. It's not like I want to stare at him when he walks around shirtless, but it's hard not to notice someone with a body made of rock-hard sculpted muscle and sin. He's got that panty-melting bad boy smile that makes you want to...
Did I mention he's my stepbrother? Ick.
What? You think I'm falling for him? Nope! It's impossible.
There's only one problem... I might have accidentally, um... it was just one night, alright? One reallygood night. Panties? Yup, they're melted.
It was a mistake, it doesn't mean anything.
Sorry, there's two problems. Did I mention our parents are away and we're stuck home alone together for a week?
I'm the responsible one. The good girl with perfect grades. And I'm trapped for a week with a bad boy who showed me what it's like to give in to my wild side.
What's the worst that can happen?
And now onto my current stepbrother TBR list!
by Abigail Graham
Six years ago, he disappeared. No calls, no texts, not even a postcard.
Suddenly he's back- bigger, badder, and hotter than ever.
I want his massive arms wrapped around me. I want him in my bed each time he gives me that smirk. Every time he touches me, I'm ready to give him whatever he wants.
Too bad lust doesn't mean forgiveness.
Four years ago, I was given an impossible choice. Staying meant putting Alexis in danger. The only way I could protect her was to disappear.
I spent four years on the other side of the world getting shot at and dragging dying kids out of firefights, my every dream haunted by her memory.
The thought of her kept me sane. My dream, my hope, my angel of battle.
Then I found out the world went crazy: My father has taken over the town and its criminal underworld.
I thought by leaving I'd keep Alexis safe, but I only put her deeper in harm's way.
Now I'm back to fix my mistakes. Alexis is mine, and my father will pay for what he's done.

You’re not supposed to want the one who torments you.
When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn’t prepared for how much of a jerk he’d be.
I hated that he took it out on me because he didn’t want to be here.
I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room.
But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.
At first, I thought all he had going for him were his rock-hard tattooed abs and chiseled face. But things started changing between us, and it all came to a head one night.
Then, just as quickly as he’d come into my life, he was gone back to California.
It had been years since I’d seen Elec.
When tragedy struck our family, I’d have to face him again.
And holy hell, the teenager who made me crazy was now a man that drove me insane.
I had a feeling my heart was about to get broken again.
Stepbrother Dearest is a standalone novel.

A Stepbrother Romance
by Jessica Ashe
Do you believe in second chances? I want to, so badly…
Four years ago, Jaxon Foster broke my heart. Before he was a swaggering all-star footballer in the UK, he was my stepbrother… and my first love.
Before I walked in on him kissing one of my friends, that is.
One moment, and my burning passion turned to bitter ash. I walked away, and I haven’t spoken a word to him since… until now.
My boss needs to recruit talented, drool-worthy superstar Jaxon to play in the US – and of course I’m the one to do it. The second Jaxon is back in my life, he makes it clear that he wants back in my bed, too.
A few simple touches, a few glasses of wine, a few dirty words whispered in my ear… Everything I ever felt for Jaxon comes flooding back, and I can’t resist him.
Our passion catches and spreads like wildfire, but the weight of Jaxon’s secrets threatens to burn us both alive. Will Jaxon and I learn from our mistakes, or will we become just another tragic love story?

Coming in from the Cold
by Sarina Bowen

Reluctant country girl Willow Reade meets Dane by accident. Literally. Her skidding truck forces him off the road during a blizzard. Stranded together in his Jeep as night falls, the two loneliest people in Vermont find themselves sharing more than they'd planned. And not just conversation.
Yet neither can guess how their unlikely tryst will threaten Dane's frightening secret and Willow's tentative peace with her own choices. Only mutual trust and understanding can end their pain and give them a hard won shot at love.

Professor Mine (Revealed)
by J.M. La Rocca
On the outside I seem to have it all. A promising career as a law professor, family money, and my good looks, but my life was full of secrets. I knew how to put up a good front; it was a mask I’d worn for a long time. I kept a rotating door of women to help me forget, but my efforts were futile. I was haunted by guilt, my always lurking, underlying darkness. I thought I had control, but there were things I had no control over.
Then I saw her.
Emma was the light to my dark, a beacon that called to me when I knew I should stay away. I avoided this kind of connection for a reason. The sins of my past left me with scars and not all of them were skin deep.
People thought they knew me, but in reality, they knew nothing.
This is a two book series, Professor Cline Redeemed is now available.
Both books are currently on sale: Revealed is $.99cents and Redeemed is $2.99, both available on Amazon.
A Lover's Lament
by KL Grayson & BT Urruela
In a matter of seconds my entire world changed, and it was in that moment that I stopped living and simply began to exist.
In my grief, I sent a letter to the first boy I ever loved. I hoped in writing it I’d find some peace from the nightmare I was living, some solace in my anger.
I didn’t expect him to write back. I wasn’t prepared for his words, and I certainly wasn’t ready for the impact this soldier would have on my life. A deep-rooted hate transformed into friendship, and then molded into a love like I’d never known before.
Sergeant Devin Ulysses Clay did what I couldn’t: he put the shattered pieces of my heart back together, restoring my faith in humanity and teaching me how to live again.
But now that I’m whole, I have a decision to make. Do I return to my life as I knew it and the fiancé I left behind, or do I walk away from it all for the only man to ever break my heart?
I’ve been living in hell, but you won’t hear me complain.
These men depend on me, as I do them, and this brotherhood is the only family I’ve ever known.
The Army saved me from a callous mother and a life on the wrong side of the tracks that was quickly spiraling out of control. So unlike most of the men in my platoon, going home wasn’t something I longed for.
I was content overseas, spending my days defending this country that gave me my life back. Fighting became my new normal … until her.
A letter from Katie Devora—a letter that I almost didn’t open. Her words put a fire back inside of me that I didn’t know I’d lost. She gave me hope during a time when I was fighting every day just to stay alive, and now it’s time I fight for her.
Decided to start a new series on my blog called TBR (to be read) Thursday!
These are reads I've found from BookBub, Twitter, Instagram, or just from searching Amazon or Goodreads. It doesn't mean I'm reading them right now or anytime soon (although I'll say if I am) but I thought I'd share what's sitting on my to be read bookshelf! Hope you can find some sexy new reads from this new series on my blog! Feel free to leave me comments on your recommendations for me to read!
