Forbidden love between a stepbrother and a stepsister. Told from the male point of view.

18+ due to sex scenes and language.

Deep down, I knew we were doomed. In a society where image and morals matter, we were never going to be together. She warned me, I didn't listen. And I'm broken as a result. Broken, alone, tortured by the memory of a love I can't have.
Three years later, it still hurts. Every day, it hurts to live without her. I bottle up my pain, forcing my love to turn to hatred, holding it tight in my fist, using it to fuel the lyrics to my songs, to fill my music with the pain I feel. It makes me famous. But the pain is still there. Always pain.
I'm dying without her.
When my career takes off, I'm introduced to a woman who will become my best friend. She's lived a life with secrets and she sees them in me, teaches me to let them go, and through my music, I allow my story to unfold. It takes another two years, but I begin to breathe. I begin to heal.
Then I see her, and it's like no time passed at all. The feelings are the same. But nothing has changed. I can't survive this again. I can't let her back in. I'm stronger now. I can say no. I can walk away–can't I?

Part two of a four part series by debut author, Eve Cates.
Part three coming very soon!

“It’s perfect.  It’s raw.  It’s a window into your heart. It’s beautiful.”

I absolutely loved Stepsister Devotion, Book 1.  Seb and Abi’s whirlwind, forbidden stepsibling romance pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go. I have been anticipating Book 2 since that time. 

Sebastian is running from his past. Taking every turn away from it, he uses whatever he can to detour himself from the memories of her. She haunts him. He’s found a niche and love that keeps him occupied and fills his time. But, he always remembers her. Abi left him to attend school and eventually become the heir to her family’s business. She could not have him and keep this dream intact, so she gave him up.

In Book 2 we are reacquainted with Seb and Abi at a different time and place than when we previously met them. We become familiar with their surroundings and current life occupations.  Many things have changed for Sebastian, with that ONE constant still remaining. He has grown in many areas of his life and has dawned a mask to block out the remains of what could have been.  When we first see him in the story, it is not Abi that is by his side. But, she soon appears and it’s as if no time has passed.  There are too many unanswered questions from the past and they must decide what the outcome will be. This book takes us through a maze of circumstances that can only lead to one conclusion.

When I started this read, it was as if I had never left Book 1 in the series. This book was a little slower-paced than the first, but with the same great writing style that Eve Cates offered us in Book 1.  I continued to be enamored with Seb. He was still the hot, sexy character from before, but he had grown up and become a man, and what a man he was!  I was sympathetic with Abi’s plight, but wanted to shake her!  She really should have chosen differently from the very beginning. Near the end of the book, I found myself grabbing for the box of tissues and letting it all out. Once again, I looked for the calendar and started counting the days until the release of Book 3.
