Author Feature: After Dark Review of Can't Stay Away by Lilly Avalon

I have added After Dark Reviews to my blog as a way of notifying you of a review of a book with Adult themes and scenes. From now on I will keep my reviews of all books I read that have explicit scenes in them for late night posts for those of you who prefer to avoid them or easy to find for those of you who seek them out ;)
Synopsis: "Piper Winchester is fresh out of college. With only three weeks until her father remarries and five weeks until her first business venture launches, she's got her hands full. She certainly doesn't need any distractions to get in the way of building the future her father's always wanted for her. But when a familiar boy with bright green eyes walks back into her life, she's thrown for a loop.

Four years ago, Chase MacKenzie left for college without looking back. He didn't mean to disturb the peace then, and he definitely doesn't want to do that now. Once he lays his eyes on Piper again, there's no way he can leave without fixing what went wrong in the past. Although she's more determined than ever to push him away, he still manages to get under her skin. Regardless of what happens between them, there's one thing that will always be standing in their way...

He's about to become her stepbrother."

My Review: I don't think I have ever read a book quite like this one and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy a step sibling romance, but the way this one is set up really works. There is clear history between Chase and Piper, while you don't really get to see that initial interaction and getting to know you period, you don't really feel like you need it. The characters had their own personalities and were well developed, while I was not a fan of Piper (I just can't stand for females that allow others to take advantage or let themselves be walked all over) I did enjoy the development of her character throughout the book. I LOVED the sub-characters, for me they really added a big bonus to the book, Theo, Nathan & Charlie were each fantastic and I want more of them. All in all a great read, plenty of steam, some emotional journey and interesting characters and plot line.
My Rating: I wasn't really sure what to expect with this book but having read all of Lilly Avalon's other books I shouldn't have worried. I love how she manages to integrate steamy moments and tension into the story without dropping the plot line. I give this a rating of Four Paws.
