I’m only a week short of my eighteenth birthday when I discover my drug-addicted mother dead, a needle in her arm.
It’s only then I learn of the family I’d forgotten—a stepfather and his two adult sons. One is star of the music world, a blind violinist who wows his audience on stage.
The other brother is his protection—a six-four beast who no one dares cross.
I don’t need them.
They don’t want me.
With my head still spinning, I find myself plunged into a world of wealth and fame.
But it’s a brief dalliance.
A private plane is due to take us to a concert hall in Montreal. Except it doesn’t make it.
We find ourselves crashed in the middle of the Canadian wilderness with little hope of rescue.
Survival becomes all.
I’m stranded with three men. Though they barely know me, we’re forced to pull together.
We might be family, but out here, where no one else can judge us, they become so much more.
*Immoral Steps is a whychoose stepbrother/stepfather romance with darker themes*
My Review – 5 stars
Intensely sexy ‘forbidden’ romance
Immoral Steps, the first instalment in Marissa Farrar’s new series is an intensely sexy and forbidden why choose romance, involving the heroine Laney’s two stepbrothers and also her stepfather…. It also has a hint of suspense which the author introduces in this book, which I expect she will develop more fully in subsequent instalments.
After the tragic death of her addict of a mother, the seventeen-year-old Laney finds herself living with her stepfather Reed and his sons; the world-renowned blind violinist Darius, and his brooding older brother Cade… Laney only has fleeting memories of Reed, the man who married her mother when Laney was a toddler and subsequently left them 14 years ago. Reed and his sons are a tight-knit trio, and although Reed is keen to step up and do his duty in looking after the child of his deceased wife, initially she is not met with open arms by her stepbrothers…
Before all concerned can come to terms with the abrupt change in circumstances and family dynamics, the plane that was carrying them crashes and survival is the new imperative.
I loved the many layers to this book: the rags to riches element; Laney’s anger at being abandoned by Reed; his guilt at leaving her with her addict of a mother and above all his resistance to the ‘forbidden’ attraction that simmers between them. It is one sexy read! I also liked the survival element of them being thrust into the wilderness and having to work together to survive. Emotions and passions run high, and all three men (each very different) develop feelings for Laney…
Cade is a ladies’ man with a hard edge and something to hide. Darius is more of an introvert and even though he is blind he is perceptive and can sense what others fail to see. Responsibility for his family weighs heavy on Reed as he struggles with his feelings and seeks to ensure their survival.
I was rooting for Laney from the off – she has had it hard, having to survive on her own for so long due to her mother’s addictions. She is as unprepared as the others to dealing with the plane crash and being stranded in the wilderness and now she has three very attractive and virile men to deal with. So what if a relationship between her and them would be regarded as ;forbidden’ in polite society? In the wilderness instinct takes over and it is a different matter, and they may not even survive…
A great first book in series, which ends on a cliffhanger. I cannot wait to see what the next instalment has in store for Laney and her men.
I received a copy of the book from Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a fair and honest review.
