He told me to ‘settle, girl.’
He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE WANTED TWO PEOPLE TO COME TOGETHER MORE THAN I HAVE WITH CADEN AND SUMMER. THE. STRESS. OMG.
Okay. Now that I’m calm I’ll begin.
This BOOK. Woah! Anti-Stepbrother was one of those books where my anxiety got SO bad because there was so much happening and left STILL to happen that when I finally seen how much was left in the book I started to panic. Legit panic. How could all of this end? I didn’t want it to end!
I want to add first that I typically love the stepbrother trope but no one has executed a book like that so perfectly since Penelope Ward. That being said: THIS IS NOT A STEP BROTHER BOOK. This is not based on him. He’s in it, but it’s not what you think. Don’t get too scared off with that!
Drama. Angst. DRAMA. ANGST. I love it all. Especially college drama and angst. (Insert my love of the Laguna Beach days) and Anti-Stepbrother has all of the above. It didn’t lack in any department.
Character wise, I loved them all. I loved Summer’s wit and I loved Caden’s charisma. I loved Avery’s supportiveness. And I loved the spunk in Marcus and Colton. All of the characters were well developed throughout this entire book. Not a single one was left behind by the author. Very awesome of her!
The best damn part about this whole book was, going into it you had it in your head that it was going to be about one thing but it WASN’T. It was about something completely different and I’m so happy with the way it turned out.
This was my second book of Tijan’s and although the first one I read I didn’t care for, this one stole me. I couldn’t put the book down because the story line itself was so delicious.
