Tiffany Burrows is desperate for a relaxing getaway to get a break from work. When her stepmom offers a few days at the family Canadian cottage, she takes it in a heartbeat. But her dream turns into tense reality when she discovers her sexy, estranged stepbrother under the same roof, and worse: stranded due to a nasty snowstorm.
Travel journalist Santiago Cruz never expected Tiffany to show up during his stay in Lake Louise. Years ago, her reckless behavior stripped him of the family he could have had and he’s never forgiven her. He’s also never forgiven himself for the inconvenient fantasies including his sexy stepsister.
The forced proximity makes them own up to their mistakes and emotions, while starting a rendezvous hot enough to melt the coldest winter…
*Full Disclosure: this novella was first published as part of the Seven Sins anthology (under the title "Accidentally Sinful"). Since then it's been edited, re-branded and it's even hotter :)

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
5 out of 5 stars
Forbidden Stepbrother was another great addition to the Forbidden series. I loved it so much. The falling in love with your step-brother trope is not one of my favorites, but Carmen Falcone is so amazing she made me love this book. I couldn't get enough of Tiffany and Santiago. Despite this story's short length since it is a novella, I was completely invested in their romance with all their history. And talking about their history, certain situations in their past were kind of fucked up and in the present their was still a lot of secrets and lies between these two, but in the end when everything was revealed it was so satisfying. So, yeah, I really loved this book. Sexy stories like this is why Carmen Falcone is one of my favorite authors and I can't wait to see what forbidden tale she is going to give us next!
