He told me to 'settle, girl.'
He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.

He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.

Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?

He wasn’t looking at me any more. I wasn’t even sure he was really in the room.
I needed to leave this alone. He had given me the clues—looking away, his jaw clenching, pain like I’d never heard from him sounding loud and clear. My instincts were telling me to shut up, but I couldn’t. I had this burning need to know more about Caden. I needed to get in there, past his walls, and I wanted to understand him.
I wanted to help him.
Caden was hurting, and I wanted to take that away.
“What happened?”
Caden turned his gaze to me now, and I felt branded by the pain I saw. His eyes were stricken. “Does it matter?”
“No.” My breath caught and held in my chest. I wanted to go to him, but I also wanted to slink away. I was stirring up his pain, but I had to know. “What happened, Caden?”
“Why do you have to know?”
“Because it’s hurting you.”
I made a decision, though I had no idea what the ramifications were going to be. I stood, my legs going numb and my stomach clenching, and I moved to his side. He leaned back, his head falling to the couch, and he watched me.
The need to ease some of his hurt outweighed the fear of what would happen next. Swallowing tightly, I stepped over to straddle him and sat down.
“What are you doing?”
He asked that softly, still holding his beer. I took it from his hands and put it on the stand next to the couch. Then I just sat there. He had to do the rest. I’d already made the first move.
I glanced down at his hands, feeling like an idiot. “What happened?”
“Why are you pushing this?”
I looked back up to find confusion warring with need in his eyes. He wasn’t pushing me away, so I sank further into his lap.
“You haven’t told anyone else about this.” It wasn’t really a question, but I saw the confirmation in his eyes. My chest tightened, thinking about whatever secret he held. “Please tell me.”
“No.” He shifted forward, and I braced myself, expecting him to push me away. He didn’t. His hands grasped the backs of my legs and lifted me so I was more fully on his lap.
I could feel him between my legs, and my breasts almost pressed against his chest. I waited. I wanted to see what else he’d say
“But not because I don’t want you to know,” he added. “Because it’s not my secret to tell.”
I nodded, my stomach doing somersaults now. “That makes sense. I can respect that.”
And there we were. His hands cupped my ass, and the pain in his gaze became something darker, something I felt too, something that began to turn off all rational thought.
“What are we doing here?” he questioned, his voice like a caress in itself.
I leaned forward, my gaze lingering on his lips. “I didn’t really think it through.”
“And now?”
“Still not thinking it through.”
“You’re okay with that?”
In that moment, the truth exploded in me. I wanted him. I wanted this—but it was more. I needed this.
I didn’t answer.
I closed the distance between us.

"I came to college to be with my stepbrother, but I fell in love with the anti-stepbrother instead" 

You know what I love? When you think that you're going to get a certain type of story and it turns out to be so much more!! Anti-Stepbrother was that book for me. It was funny, heartwarming with a bit of angst and just the right amount of sexiness. Caden Banks stole the show for me and who would want a Stepbrother when you could have the bad ass Anti-Stepbrother.

Summer Stoltz has been head over heels for her Stepbrother Kevin for the last two years. Now attending the same College, she thinks that this could be her real shot at being with him. Kevin always has a girlfriend for a certain amount of time and Summer knows that when the time comes and he's back to being available, he's going to finally see her as something more. But you know what they say about plans: they always have a way of changing and that change came in the form of one hot tattoed bad boy.

Caden Banks is in a class all by himself. Being a Junior and now and having been around parties and women constantly for the past couple of years, he certainly grew up but make no mistake: he does what he wants, when he wants. Meeting the new freshman Summer in a uncomfortable position, was a introduction he'll never forget. Summer being different was something that drew him and what soon became a happy friendship, turned out to be so much more. 

"This girl, she got inside me. She wound me up and I hated item 
I really liked that Caden and Summer built a friendship first and were comfortable around each other. His brooding demenor and Summer's colorful and quirky personality complimented each other very well. Caden understood what it meant to have her friendship and he knew that there wasn't going to be another one like Summer.

I also really liked their connection and I was rooting for them despite the obstacles that were put in their way. Now as for the side characters? Some of them really needed to get lost at sea or in in the woods. Did it make the storyline more interesting? Absolutely. But I wanted less drama with certain people. 

If your in the mood for a one of a kind College romance, then you NEED to meet Caden and Summer.

I didn't begin writing until after undergraduate college. There'd been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can't blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I'm hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
