ARC Review: Hot Damn! - A BBW Stepbrother Romance by D.H. Cameron

Hot Damn! - A BBW Stepbrother RomanceHot Damn! - A BBW Stepbrother Romance by D.H. Cameron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Vicky has always been the good girl who does what she’s told. Lately, following the rules has gotten her nowhere. After her fiancé leaves her for a thinner prettier woman, she is forced to move back in with her mother and stepfather. How much worse can her life get? Oh, it can get worse when she decides to pay her stepbrother a visit his boss offers her a job. She needs a job badly so she figures working with a bunch of grease monkey bikers might not be as bad as it seems. It’s working with her hot stepbrother that might become a problem. Or will it be a problem, she grows to love?

Tyler is the black sheep of the family. He lost his mother at a young age and his father never seemed to be able to provide the unconditional love and respect that Tyler craved so he rebelled. Even after his father remarried giving Tyler, a little sister and a family they still could not get along. Tyler liked his stepsister well enough, but they didn’t really have much in common. She was a good girl. He was a bad boy. When he left home for good, he didn’t really think about Vicky too much. Until one day she walks back into his life, his world is suddenly turned upside down, and he rather likes it.

I was already a D.H. Cameron fan, so when I was gifted with an advanced copy of Hot Damn! I was overjoyed. D.H. just writes really well, she draws you in from the first chapter and keeps you interested and invested in the characters until the end. I also like that her stories have heroines with a bit of meat on their bones. Being a curvy girl myself, I can totally relate with someone like Vicky. She spent years trying to be what others wanted her to be. Until she finally found someone who loves her for who she is, who would have thought that someone would be her stepbrother.

Vicky and Tyler are stepsiblings different as night and day. They didn’t really grow up together that long, but the relationship that they had as teenagers was anything but cordial. They hung out with different crowds and had different interests. Meeting up again years later everything has changed. Vicky sees Tyler in a whole new light he’s still a bad boy, though hotter than ever with his multiple tattoos and piercings. He screams danger, but Vicky could use a little danger in her life.

Tyler starts looking at Vicky in a less than a brotherly way almost at first sight after years of not having any connect. He is set in his ways and he likes his life besides a quick roll in the hay he doesn’t need any complications. However, after a scorching hot night, together, Vicky manages to get under his skin and he realizes quickly than he expected that his feelings for his stepsister run deeper than he thought he could ever feel about a woman. He soon finds out Vicky feels the same, now how do they move forward with their forbidden relationship is the question.

I thought the author did a great job handling the adversity this couple goes through. For the most part the people in their lives don’t care that they are stepsiblings. The only ones who have a very hard time with it are their parents. Understandable, but they go to great lengths to pull this couple apart. I felt this book was much more than erotica or romance. It told a story of unexpected love and of unconditional love and friendship.

This is a fantastic read if you like the stepsibling genre that seems to be all the rage lately. Definitely recommend.

About the Author

I am a Miami based author with an uncontrollable sweet tooth. I have had a lifelong love of reading romance novels that began in my early teens with the Jane Austen Classics. I love the way the genre has evolved with Erotica. My characters and stories are hot but also there is still love and romance. I am always writing and will be adding more books on a regular basis. 

Thanks for reading! I love hearing from you!
