He's a British rock star.
And my stepbrother.
What can go wrong?
He called himself Spider. I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane. I didn’t know who he really was…rock star…my stepbrother.
He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would.
Everyone warned me about him.
They said he was ruthless and cold and screwed up.
They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart.
Maybe I should have listened.
Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out.
But I crumbled instead.
Some have said there's an unbreakable thread that connects those who are destined to meet. If that’s true, then the moment he sat next to me, we were bound together forever.
He just had to figure it out before it’s too late…
Welcome back step-brother romance trope… my have I missed you. Spider by Ilsa Madden-Mills is a modern take on Jane Eyre and my oh my was it delicious.
“Let’s get one thing straight, stepbrother, your sexy little accent won’t work on me.”
Spider was something special, he was a bad boy with a heart of gold, basically my crack when it comes to heroes. I can’t resist this in my books add in his British accent and I am a total goner! Rose had a rough childhood and was taken in as an orphan and was treated more as an accessory than a person. Even with all she went through she was still a strong willed woman.
For as much as I enjoyed this story, it wasn’t really what I thought I would get going into it. I expected dark and angsty and while it did have these bits, Spider, overall didn’t have the feel I expected.
I loved watching Spider and Rose overcome their many obstacles, I wanted to pump my fist in victory! I wanted to strangle each of them out of frustration. I enjoyed seeing Spider grow into a man and get cleaned up. I loved the steamy scenes and the OMG moment with things went down! I was so stunned, I didn’t see it coming.
Over Spider was a deep read and I enjoyed immensely.
