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

5 Soul-mate stars.
"She and I are two parts of a whole".
"One often meets his destiny on the road he takes to avoid it"
It was the journey that made this a five star for me, the writing was smooth and easy to absorb and the characters moved me, I felt the heartache and the highs and Lowe's with them.
A heart warming and yet a heart breaking journey at times.
Told in two parts, Rose first meets Spider when she is just 11, it's late at night and Rose is in her sleepwear after escaping her mother's drunken or high boyfriend.
Spider who is 5 years older than Rose gives her money for food and his number if she ever needs help.
Skip forward a few years and Rose now 17 been in foster care and is adopted. This is still part one in this book.
After visiting friends Rose is on a plane to her adopted mother's and her new husband's home.
Spider and Rose meet again when seated on the same plane. Spider irritates Rose with his flirting and cockiness, she's a take no crap kind of girl. After flirting with Rose he then ends up having a quickie with an air stewardess in the loo while he thinks Rose is asleep. .
You could say Rose and Spiders reunion even though they don't know who each other are doesn't go down well but the connection is tangible.
The backstory for both characters doesn't go Into too much depth but Spiders man-whore ways and his distance from people is digestible with his past.
I suppose the shocker to this story should be Rose discovering Anne's new husband Robert is actually Spiders dad thus making Rose and Spider step brother and sister but it's so much more than a stepbrother romance and this isn't the main issue or story-line in this plot.
"He is intoxicating. Fascinating. Enthralling. Mesmerising. He's all I can think about
"She's a fucking flower and I want to open every petal, one by one"
Part two is years later, Spider becoming a rock-star, his addictions, his regrets. Rose following her ideal career trying to forget Spider and going to College, moving on until they meet again.
I loved watching the growth in these two characters. Fighting their feelings for each other, the intimate moments and the heartbreak before the road to acceptance, to change and to a hea.
Another story were destiny is Devine.
In the plot it's Intense at times, more through being anxious for the characters more than anything, so there's a little angst and drama.
Cheating? yes sort of, Rose has a boyfriend when Spider returns.
FYI: Spider is a tough guy...but he also reads Jane Eyre. There's something super hot about an alpha male who digs literature.... swoooon right there!
I loved this book, I loved the journey.
Told in first persons dual pov.
