Levi Black is an s.o.b.
Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he’s a pretentious, obnoxious, womanizing jacka** who thinks the world revolves around him.
He wouldn’t be wrong.
A famous soccer player, his skills on and off the field have won him medals, trophies, women, and the cover of every heartthrob magazine in the country. He’s broken nearly every bone in his body and a few hearts along the way, including mine—his stepsister—and lived to tell about it.
One night changed everything, and I’ve avoided him like the plague ever since. Just long enough to finish college, to bury the hurt, and to outrun the memories. But now that’s all changed. I’m back, and there’s no more running.
My hands are supposed to be my livelihood, but now they’re my curse. Levi’s reckless ways have landed him in a sticky situation, and his father has given me an offer I can’t refuse. One month, and all I have to do is put my hands on his body. Easier said than done. The problem is, even though I know it’s bound to bite me in the a**, I can’t bring myself to say no to the s.o.b.

Releasing the dock, he moves toward me through the water, his big body crowding mine. Focusing on the gray, splintered wood beneath my fingers, a ripple of awareness moves through me as Levi positions himself behind me. His heat warms the water at my back as he closes the distance and places his hands on either side of mine, framing my body with his.
“I’ve spent the past four years trying not to think about you,” he says, his voice low and husky in my ear. Closing my eyes, I listen to his soft voice, powerless to argue when he’s this close, his body touching mine. “You’re a siren, calling to me in my dreams. No matter what I do, I can’t escape you.”
It’s not the chill in the water that makes me shiver this time. “It’s the same for me,” I confess. I don’t want it to be true, but I’ve been trying to outrun this for what feels like forever.
“Then stop running,” he rasps, almost as if he’s read my mind. His lips skim the shell of my ear and he takes the lobe between his teeth, giving it a playful tug. “Turn around, princess, and we’ll both stop denying what we’ve wanted for too long. Let me kiss you.
S.O.B. (A Stepbrother Romance) by J.C. Valentine
As teenagers Levi and Vista fell hard for each other and into bed. Unfortunately their parents married the next day, and Levi dropped Vista like a hot potato and didn’t look back. Four years later Levi is now a professional soccer player who after breaking his leg, needed a physical therapist that isn’t easily scared off. Now his father is asking him for a favor. However with David Black he’s NOT asking, he’s TELLING! Levi knows his father gets what he wants, one way or another. Otherwise whomever didn’t bend to his ways were reduced to nothing. Levi thought he buried every thought and feeling he had for Vista when he had to walk away from her 4 years ago. Oh Boy, was he ever wrong!
Vista, a physical therapist working to build her portfolio fresh out of college. She accepts her stepfather’s offer to help with the seed money to start up her own business. The only thing she has to do is be Levi’s physical therapist for one month to get him back on the field. *One month of putting my hands on Levi’s tight body. One month of rubbing every inch of the smooth, sun-kissed skin I’ve only seen in magazines for the last four years. One month of his insufferable attitude and I’ll be set.(*direct book passage/quote). But can she let go of the old hurt and the feelings she had for him? *Levi’s a bullheaded jerk who was happy living in his father’s shadow and having his life mapped out for him.(*direct book quote). Surely it can’t be that hard! Then she seen him, damn who was she kidding? It’s going to be completely torturous. But Levi’s cocky attitude helps remind her how much of an S.O.B. he is.
David has made it clear to Levi he is absolutely not to cross that line with Vista again! Can these two work together platonically (as stepbrother and stepsister), or is their connection so deep they cannot fight it? You’ll have to read S.O.B. to find out. This is one hot and spicy couple, their back and forth bantering makes you laugh. However David Black is definitely a challenging character! WAY TO GO J.C. Valentine! Another great story!! I received an ARC via IndieSage in exchange for an honest blog tour review. Due to explicit sexual content and adult language this novel is recommended for readers 18 and older.
