Gideon Lattimore was the town’s all-star prince. Mr. Perfect, who gave out gleaming smiles and wicked winks–and he was Jade’s hero. From the moment she met him, they had been inseparable. For Jade, Gideon was everything: he was her self-proclaimed protector, her best friend, and her family.
Living in a beautiful, sleepy town by the ocean surrounded by family and friends, their sparkling futures were all mapped out. She would graduate high school and attend the same college as him, and maybe one day, she would even get over her secret crush. For now, though, life was simply perfect, and Jade was content to dream.
But everyone knows perfect things never last.
Cast from the only place they had ever called home, Jade and Gideon Lattimore are forced to downsize their lives into seventy-seven inches of their recently deceased father’s semi-truck. Together they travel across the US, taking every paying load they can in hopes of planning out a new future. With every mile passed, tensions begin to build, and unspoken feelings between them begin to rise to the surface, daring the other to acknowledge them first.
But one poor decision comes crashing through their fragile existence, and it may just cost them their lives–or it just may make their forbidden dreams come true.
**Author’s note: A Love So Wrong is a standalone forbidden romance set in my new town of Stardust Cove. Containing steamy stepbrother themes and a dash of dark romantic suspense, this forbidden love story is intended for mature audiences. This book contains no cheating and no cliffhangers, voyeurism and a guaranteed HEA.
My main issue with this book is that while our main characters are not related by blood they are also not step siblings. In the eyes of the law they are siblings because they were both adopted from foster care by the same parents. It is also an added issue that these two were children when they met. Jade was eight. In step sibling romances they are usually adult age or very close to it when they first meet and they have not been raised together. This made me somewhat squeamish. Taking out that aspect it was a great read, thrilling and fast paced. There is sexual abuse and also forced sexual encounters so if the characters familial relationship doesn’t out you off that might.
