A Stepbrother Novel
Jen McLaughlin
Available Now!

In this explosive novel from bestselling author Jen McLaughlin, a good girl falls for the ultimate bad boy: her stepbrother. Perfect for fans of Sabrina Paige, Caitlin Daire, and Krista Lakes, Bad Romance proves that passion can be so wrong it’s right.

Seven years in the army will change a guy. But after a shoulder wound ends his career as a sniper, Jackson Worthington finds himself back home, fighting a battle that’s all too familiar: keeping his hands off Lily Hastings. She’s still her rich daddy’s little angel, innocent, impossibly lovely, as squeaky-clean as Jackson is dirty. And she’s still his stepsister—forbidden but not forgotten, not after the soul-melting kiss that got him kicked out of the house at eighteen. He couldn’t resist her then. How the hell can he resist her now?

Lily is about to marry a man she doesn’t love, and commit to a high-stress job she hates, all to please the father who controls every waking moment of her life. On top of everything, her teenage crush is back, with a sleek, chiseled body and a trace of the rebellious boy whose lips sealed her fate. Jackson’s timing couldn’t be worse . . . or better. Because Lily’s all grown up, too. She’s aching for another taste. And for the first time, she’s ready to be a bad girl.

Miss Boxy Frown's Review

Bad Romance is a sexy stepbrother romance about Lily, a young woman who has always does what is expected of her, and Jackson, who left their home as a teenager when he wouldn't do the same.  Seven years later their bittersweet beginnings have not been forgotten as Jackson returns home and encounters an older, sexier Lily. Both adults with responsibilities, the repercussions of stepsiblings being involved in a small affluent community are many; Lily has a responsibility to her father and plans to marry a man she doesn't love to combine family businesses. However Lily is tired of doing the expected for everyone else. She wants Jackson, and she wants him all for herself.

The chemistry between army man Jackson and society gal Lily is scorching, and always has been. Older, wiser, and with a more mature set of tastes, these two can't stay away even when they try. Sometimes in stepbrother novels the connection is watered down, which then waters down the taboo. However, Jen McLaughlin's Lily and Jackson are a perfect example of what a reader wants to encounter in this sexy trope.  Secret romances are hot, and stepbrothers are even hotter. Jackson's passion for Lily jumps off the page and grabs you by the feels. He isn't just physically attracted, but emotionally as well. Bad Romance is a hot read from cover to cover!
