Off Limits: A Stepbrother MMA Romance
by Callie Harper
I like to fight and I like to fuck.
Now’s my shot to fight for real, step out from my billionaire father’s shadow and be my own man. This summer’s all about going after my goal of becoming a pro MMA fighter.
The problem is the girl I want to fuck. She’s driving me crazy with her little yoga outfits, her creamy skin, luscious curves and wide-eyed innocence. Normally, I’d hit it and quit it, get her out of my system and focus.
But she’s my fucking stepsister. And she hates me. This summer we’re supposed to spend eight weeks together living under the same roof.
I need to taste her. I won’t rest until she’s writhing beneath me, begging me to let her come. I’m a man who gets what he wants, and what I want now is Jewel.
I want him so bad it hurts. I’ve never felt this way before.
I’ve never had a problem keeping my distance from bad boys. The more muscles, tats and testosterone, the more I ran the other way. I learned my lesson, growing up with a trainwreck of a mother.
Tuck makes my panties melt. He keeps me up at night, twisting in the sheets, obsessed with fantasies while I touch myself.
But he’s my stepbrother. And he’s an alpha, dominant asshole.
We’re sharing a house and he’s walking around shirtless, every inch of him ripped with hard muscle, sweaty after his brutal workouts. I don’t think I can hold out much longer. I’ve always been the good girl, but he makes me want to be bad.
***Off Limits is a standalone stepbrother romance novel with a HEA (85,000 words).

Off Limits is the first book by Callie Harper that I have read. I was attracted to this book because of the cover and the fact that it was a MMA fighter story. I was also drawn to the story because of it’s taboo plot. I am sucker for the step sibling storyline!!
I have to be honest and say I enjoyed this book but I had a hard time connecting with the characters, which in turn made some aspects of the story hard to believe. I am person who doesn’t mind angst in my stories, but this book had a little too much for my taste. I felt that with all the will she/won’t she stuff it made the ending rushed and unbelievable. I would’ve liked to see Tuck and Jewel get together sooner and see how they face some challenges together. Had they been together sooner than the last 20% of the book could’ve been expanded upon and not been so rushed.
I will say that I did like Callie’s writing style and her storytelling. I would’ve liked a little more focus on the MMA part of the story and maybe a little less of the taboo step sibling angle.
What I did love about this story was the growth we saw in Tuck. In the beginning I found him pretty cliche….the typical spoiled rich guy who liked to party and hook up with girls. I thought it was great that Jewel called him on his behavior and he realized he had different goals in his life than that of his dad and made a complete turn around. I have to admit I had a soft spot in my heart for Tuck. Jewel on the other hand I really wanted to smack. Her hot and cold routine started to ware on me. I get why she had some self esteem issues stemming from her mom, but I thought Tuck did a great job building her up. Plus I didn’t like all the games she would play with Tuck….(example…Mike) I will say that Tuck has a dirty mouth and I absolutely loved it. He can surely melt a pair of panties 😉
So if you are looking for a melt your panties hot, taboo, MMA fighter love story, then this is one you’ll want to give a try. Even though this wasn’t a 5 star book for me doesn’t mean it won’t be for someone else. I look forward to seeing what Callie gives us next.
