 When Fletcher Crawford returns to his hometown of Sarasota, Florida from New York City, he feels like a total and complete failure. At his mother’s insistence, he applies and consequently gets a job at Ericson Industries as a managerial assistant/slave boy for a woman who seems to be out to get him for no apparent reason. The only perk of the job, besides the paycheck, is being able to work closely with his high school nemesis who also happens to be his high school crush … and future stepbrother. Of all the people his mother could marry, why did it have to be the father of Erik Ericson who grew up to be super successful, have the looks of a Greek god, and is basically running his father’s company while he is making wedding plans with Fletcher’s mother?

But one thing remained the same after all these years, Erik was still a dick… A dick Fletcher wouldn’t mind getting to know better.

Reader Advisory: This book contains steamy sex scenes between two men with stellar bodies. Consider yourself warned.

The Stepbrother by Alex Carreras isn’t as taboo as the title would suggest.  The parents in this book are about to get married so they are not technically even remotely related yet. So this is more of a story of Fletcher a young man who has always envied Eric’s good looks, money, and ease that he has with people. He also has had a crush on him since high school.  Eric  is the classic golden boy. Good at sports, good looking , can have anyone he wants.  Money power and young. Eric needs Fletcher as much as Fletcher needs Eric. One job interview shows them both that they are best off together. Eric does come off as arrogant at first but as we peel back his layers we see he really is just like Fletcher, soft hearted, and totally obsessed with the other man.   But when obsession catches fire will they both be burned?  I loved the connection and the real feel I got for both men in this book. I really was kind of glad it is not a true step brother romance it is more a case of the one that got away you getting a second chance at your first love kind of thing. Really well done and thought out.  For a fun but hot read this book is a great fast paced book. I highly recommend.
