He told me to ‘settle, girl.’
He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?

I am a big fan of this Author and jumped on the chance to review it before I even read the blurb. I mean it’s Tijan and a Stepbrother book. Or rather Anti Stepbrother. Yes please, and thank you very much. This story had a lot of what I love, angst, a shitload of drama, great characters and a sexy guys. The Author did another fantastic job with this book and once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. I totally read it on one sitting and loved it.
Summer has been in love with Kevin for two years and after a hot night together she thinks he may feel the same way so she decides to follow him to College and basically surprise him. What’s the problem you ask? Well Kevin is her stepbrother and from the fact that she walks in on him with his tongue shoved down another girls throat has her wondering what the hell she was thinking.
“It was a trainwreck. I saw it coming. The lights were bright and impending, and I should have gotten off the track. But nope, I was the idiot blinded in place.”
Trying to flee the scene and save her dignity after walking in on Kevin she literally runs into Caden Banks. Hello Mr. Banks! Kevin and Caden are in the same fraternity, but Kevin is a douche bag that apparently hasn’t changed much since High School and literally sleeps with half the girls on campus. What Summer or anyone else sees in him is beyond me. Caden on the other hand is mysterious and sexy and such an intriguing character. He is the untouchable and unattainable guy on campus and even though him and Summer have a less than stellar they soon bond over their mutual hatred of Kevin and become friends.
“This girl, she got inside me. She wound me up and I hated it.”
The chemistry between these two was crazy intense but the friendship they had developed meant so much to them they both were unsure of what to do. I loved that Summer was smart and quirky and even though the was so unsure of herself the broody, quite, sexy Caden slowly nudged her out of her shell. It was really sweet the way they complimented each others personalities. I loved watching them figure it all out as they went along. But what happens when someone you thought was in your past is suddenly wants something more ? I really enjoyed this book and loved the characters. Can’t wait to read more from Tijan!
“I came to college to be with my stepbrother. I fell in love with the anti-stepbrother instead.”
He wasn’t looking at me any more. I wasn’t even sure he was really in the room.
I needed to leave this alone. He had given me the clues—looking away, his jaw clenching, pain like I’d never heard from him sounding loud and clear. My instincts were telling me to shut up, but I couldn’t. I had this burning need to know more about Caden. I needed to get in there, past his walls, and I wanted to understand him.
I wanted to help him.
Caden was hurting, and I wanted to take that away.
Caden turned his gaze to me now, and I felt branded by the pain I saw. His eyes were stricken. “Does it matter?”
“No.” My breath caught and held in my chest. I wanted to go to him, but I also wanted to slink away. I was stirring up his pain, but I had to know. “What happened, Caden?”
“Why do you have to know?”
“Because it’s hurting you.”
I made a decision, though I had no idea what the ramifications were going to be. I stood, my legs going numb and my stomach clenching, and I moved to his side. He leaned back, his head falling to the couch, and he watched me.
The need to ease some of his hurt outweighed the fear of what would happen next. Swallowing tightly, I stepped over to straddle him and sat down.
“What are you doing?”
He asked that softly, still holding his beer. I took it from his hands and put it on the stand next to the couch. Then I just sat there. He had to do the rest. I’d already made the first move.
I glanced down at his hands, feeling like an idiot. “What happened?”
“Why are you pushing this?”
I looked back up to find confusion warring with need in his eyes. He wasn’t pushing me away, so I sank further into his lap.
“You haven’t told anyone else about this.” It wasn’t really a question, but I saw the confirmation in his eyes. My chest tightened, thinking about whatever secret he held. “Please tell me.”
“No.” He shifted forward, and I braced myself, expecting him to push me away. He didn’t. His hands grasped the backs of my legs and lifted me so I was more fully on his lap.
I could feel him between my legs, and my breasts almost pressed against his chest. I waited. I wanted to see what else he’d say
“But not because I don’t want you to know,” he added. “Because it’s not my secret to tell.”
I nodded, my stomach doing somersaults now. “That makes sense. I can respect that.”
And there we were. His hands cupped my ass, and the pain in his gaze became something darker, something I felt too, something that began to turn off all rational thought.
“What are we doing here?” he questioned, his voice like a caress in itself.
I leaned forward, my gaze lingering on his lips. “I didn’t really think it through.”
“Still not thinking it through.”
“You’re okay with that?”
In that moment, the truth exploded in me. I wanted him. I wanted this—but it was more. I needed this.
I didn’t answer.
I closed the distance between us.
About The Author
I didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
