A Stepbrother RomancePeople say a lot of different things about money, some of them true and some less true than others. But one thing I've learned the hard way to be completely and unquestionably true, is that money can never be a substitute for love. I've been madly in love with my stepsister Hillary since the two of us were teenagers, everything about her driving me wild, but I've never been able to tell her about it, for obvious reasons. If I ever said anything, I know it would destroy what we have with each other, and I know it would tear our family apart. So for years I've been running from my feelings, running, running, running, running, turning to drugs, other women, and amassing my immense wealth as a means of ridding our forbidden love from my mind. But there comes a time when you just can't run anymore, and sometimes you're forced to confront things face to face. But is facing the truth worth the possibility of destroying a relationship with the woman you love? This is a stand-alone Contemporary New Adult Romance novel. No Cliffhanger. Content suitable for mature readers, contains sexual content and harsh language.
