A standalone taboo romance. No cliffhanger. 18+
On the way to our parents wedding in the mountains, the mother of all snow storms attacks, leaving me stranded in a remote cabin with my new stepbrother.
My name is Sierra, and my libido can only take so much.
“Listen, princess.” I lift her chin toward mine, meeting this gorgeous big blue eyes. “I’m not sure if you noticed, but we’re stranded together in the middle of fucking nowhere, with only each other to count on. You can fight me all you want, but there’s one thing you need to understand. I’m going to protect you. I’m going to take care of you. And in case you haven’t noticed, I’m six-foot-four, and probably have a hundred pounds on you. My body is going to produce a lot more heat than yours. Now calm the fuck down, and let me get you warm. Got it, sweetheart?” Her fighting stops immediately.
She nods, coyly, blinking those baby blues at me, all of her fight disappearing. “Got it.” Her voice is small, and I suddenly feel like a dick.
“Good. Glad we’re on the same page.” I tug her body closer so we’re pressed tightly together, and I hold her to my chest, wrapping her in my arms. A contented little sigh escapes her lips. The top of her head doesn’t even reach my chin. She packs a lot of sass for such a small thing. I inhale, and breathe in the scent of her shampoo. The smell of vanilla and lavender fill my nose. Damn, who knew that combination could be so perfect? It’s intoxicating and I can feel my body slowly start to react to the smell and the images my mind starts to produce. The way her slight curves mold to my body serves to warm me up pretty damn quick.

I want to start by apologizing if my review ends up being on the short side. This book was a very quick, short and sexy read. I was able to read this in about an hours time.
With that said I enjoyed this short story. Do you ever get in the mood to just read a mindless, sexy and drama free read?? Well Stranded with My Stepbrother is just that kind of book. This had no drama and it was quite steamy. I do wish that we would’ve gotten a little bit more with this story. I felt a little bit more background on the characters would’ve help the connection better between them.
This was my first Madison Collins book and it is safe to say I will read other books in the future by this author. I liked that she wrote this book in Dual POV. It was nice knowing what both characters felt. I do feel that this story was rushed a little bit. It made some parts of it feel unrealistic. I mean we went from two characters who basically hate each other (with no real explanation for the anger towards one another ) to falling into bed together and then professing their love for one another. I just don’t see things going like that in real life. Now I know this book is fiction and that is why I still really enjoyed it even with my above comments.
So if you are interested in a book with no drama, but some really hot sexy times and also has a taboo subject attached to it, then look no further and give this little book a try. It is worth the read if you have an hour or so that you need to pass the time.
