Review: Step Lover by Sam Crescent


Published Feb. 2020


I love Kate. For a long time, I’ve treated her as if she means nothing to me, and I know I’ve been wrong. I’ve had no choice but to push her away. You see, Kate is my stepsister. I shouldn’t want her. We’ve not grown up together, but still. My need for her is always there. Only now, I’m not going to do as I’m told anymore. I love her more than anything else in the world, and I know I’m the only one for her.

She will be mine.


Coming home for the holidays is hard, but I’ve missed my family. I’m not going to let Myron get to me. I’m also not going to be like other women and fall all over myself over him. Sure, I’ve had a crush on him for years, but that doesn’t mean I have to act on it. He has made it clear we’re never going to be together, so why would I want him? Of course, I mean, he’s handsome, and every time he’s near, my heart flutters, and a need unlike anything I’ve ever experienced fills me, but that doesn’t mean I want him, does it?

May be spoilers:

Step Lover is part of the Forbidden series. It has 8 chapters and is about Kate and Myron.

They are step siblings and they have both been in love with the other for years.

Kate doesn’t know how Myron feels as his dad told him to leave her alone, so he’s always acted like she wasn’t anything to him.

Now, she’s back and he’s going to make sure she knows how he feels about her. She thinks it’s just a game to him at first.

I didn’t really feel the connection between them. We don’t have to see him with anyone and she’s a virgin. I don’t know if he was celibate since meeting and falling for her as it doesn’t really say either way.

Everything does move super fast. Lots of steam.

Good read. I liked it. Flows well. Didn’t really feel the connection in the beginning, but it was still a good read.

No cheating, no ow/om drama, no separations after they get together except by distance only.

Epilogue is 10 years out. They are happily married with 4 kids and pregnant.  I gave it 🌟🌟🌟½ . Have you read it? What did you think?
