If you love the stepbrother romances of Sabrina Paige, Caitlin Daire, and Krista Lakes, you’ll fall hard for Laura Marie Altom’s tale of forbidden love—a red-hot novel in her Shamed series featuring two tortured souls with an unbreakable bond.
As the chief legal counsel for dot-com billionaire Liam Stone, Garrett Marsden has grown accustomed to being universally loathed. In fact, he welcomes it. Because the bigger the fight, the easier it is to run from his desire for someone he can never have: his stepsister. But when Garrett flies back to Julep, Mississippi, for Savannah’s med school graduation, a steamy encounter makes all his wildest dreams come true—and leads to his undoing. Because that’s when he meets Savannah’s boyfriend.
Five years later, Savannah Boudreaux couldn’t be happier as a small-town Southern doctor and single mom to a young son. There’s only one thing missing. Her stepbrother, Garrett, has just been released from prison, and although he may be a free man, he’s become a bitter shadow of the kind and caring man who once came to her rescue. Now Savannah will cross the line to save Garrett from himself: to prove that he can live his life, love whoever he wants . . . and be a wonderful father to their son.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘STEPPING OVER THE LINE’ by Laura Marie Altom:
“Stepping Over The Line” is the first novel in the new Stepbrother Series by author Laura Marie Altom. This novel is a part of the Contemporary Romance genre and offers a twisted-romance that is both taboo and unconventional. Regardless, the emotional connection and the secrets make for such an entertaining story. Stepping Over The Line is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Savannah Boudreaux and Garrett Marsden.
When Garrett Marsden was first introduced to Savannah, they were both teenagers who’s parents were getting married. Any kind of attraction felt from either of them was squashed and ignored because they would become step-siblings and nothing more. Garrett Marsden has been known as a jerk, heartless and soulless because of his “I don’t care” attitude. He’s a rich, tough attorney as well as a sexy male specimen who finds it easy to pick any female he wants- except one. The One who has had his attention since they were teenagers when they were first introduced by his father. His step-sister Savannah.
Savannah is a beautiful and hard worker who has a good head on her shoulders. Her future is set with a residency waiting for her in Boston after graduating from medical school. Her dark hair and green eyes have always been on Garrett’s mind but things would change in a completely different direction on the night of her graduation. Savannah and Garrett take their eager curiosity and twisted-attraction down a road of no return together.
Savannah finds herself in a surprising circumstance that will change her life completely. It brings up new questions about her feelings and her future involving Garrett and her current boyfriend Chad. When Savannah and Garrett find Chad in a revealing situation, things quickly go downhill, bringing them to a terribly heartbreaking split in the road of their lives. Chad’s brother Canton enters the picture as a friend to Savannah, bridging the past and present after tragedy ties their two families together.
Unfortunately, there are secrets waiting to be found but a few people are determined to keep them hidden for different reasons. Who can Savannah trust and will her secrets destroy everyone in her life? How will Garrett’s life be changed and will he ever get passed those drastic changes? And who is really not as they seem? This story-line has many twists-and-turns and unexpected moments that will send readers through some ups and downs with these characters. They aren’t perfect. They find themselves dealing with their emotions and situations in different ways. This is worth checking out if you enjoy stories with forbidden love interests and dark sordid secrets. If you enjoy that, then this book is for you! 🙂
