Forbidden love between a stepbrother and a stepsister. Told from the male point of view. 18+ due to sex scenes and language.

When the world is against your love, how do you survive it?

From the moment we met, we knew there was something. Some invisible force that makes two people want the one thing they can’t have. Our parents saw it too. They kept us apart and treated me like I was some sort of deviant for being attracted to my stepsister. They told me to stay away. They warned me to leave her alone. They just made it worse.

It wasn’t me they should have been warning. She was the one pursuing me.

Over the years, we’ve stayed connected in secret. It’s been a long drawn out tease. But now it’s the last summer before college, and my father and stepmother have no choice but to have us both in the house at the same time.

She wants one summer before her family obligations take over.

But I want all of her. I want to own her body and soul, and I’m not going to stop until she’s mine.

I don’t care if she’s my stepsister. I don’t care what anyone thinks. I won’t give her up.

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

I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.


“Being with Abi is better than music and better than swimming or running.  It’s better than any moment before and probably every moment after.  It feels like perfection.”

The stepsibling taboo genre has been well-visited, especially in the last year.  When beginning to read Stepsister Devotion I thought I knew how the book was going to progress. But, I quickly learned that it was unfair to jump to that conclusion with this book, and was giddy with excitement that I gave it a chance.


She is the well-rounded, all-American girl.  She always does what’s right, dresses right, says the right things, goes to the right places with the right people.  She is exactly what her family wants her to be. You’ve heard people say that it’s always the quiet ones…Abi fits that warning.


He’s the good kid.  He makes every attempt to do the right thing.  Things have not always come easy for him, and he doesn’t have the perfect life.  But, he wants to better himself.

Theirs is a story of complicated young love. Neither expecting to see what they do in each other. We watch as they attempt to avoid the obvious. We are with each character as they go through growth and change, until it leads them to the inevitable. 

The author hooked me at “Run!”.   Abigail is pure spunk and tenacity, and I am in love with Seb!  Seriously, last page, I was bummed that I had to leave him.  Some of the things that wooed me and prompted five stars for my review…Author Eve Cates allowed for characters development with age, with their demeanor and verbiage changing as time passed.  My interest is always piqued when given a story from a male’s point of view, so being allowed to read Seb’s thoughts was a unique opportunity.  The way in which Seb presented himself to Abby left me speechless.  He was definitely all male, but hid a soft side beneath the surface that seemed to be saved for her. Swoon!! My emotions were constant pulled, from anticipation to despair, hope to hopeless. Seb and Abi’s time together was sweet and hot, a recipe for goodness or everything that’s bad for you.  The surprises in the story made me squeal, at times with delight and then with swift change to horror.  At one point my heart was ripped out, broken into a thousand pieces, and left shattered on the ground.  Thankfully, I know that book 2 in this series will be releasing soon.

5 Stars
