Rating- 4 stars

Levi Black is an s.o.b.

Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he’s a pretentious, obnoxious, womanizing jacka** who thinks the world revolves around him.

He wouldn’t be wrong.

A famous soccer player, his skills on and off the field have won him medals, trophies, women, and the cover of every heartthrob magazine in the country. He’s broken nearly every bone in his body and a few hearts along the way, including mine—his stepsister—and lived to tell about it.

One night changed everything, and I’ve avoided him like the plague ever since. Just long enough to finish college, to bury the hurt, and to outrun the memories. But now that’s all changed. I’m back, and there’s no more running.

My hands are supposed to be my livelihood, but now they’re my curse. Levi’s reckless ways have landed him in a sticky situation, and his father has given me an offer I can’t refuse. One month, and all I have to do is put my hands on his body. Easier said than done. The problem is, even though I know it’s bound to bite me in the a**, I can’t bring myself to say no to the s.o.b. 


"I don’t think you want me to go away. I think you want me to chase you. Well, princess, you’ve got your wish, because you’re the only dummy I want to chase.”

This isn't your typical step brother romance. Nope...at least I don't think it is. Do you know the saying,'what you see is what you get?' Well, you get so much more in S.O.B. It's my favorite type of story in romance; the bad boy with a heart of gold. I didn't really expect to love this book as much as I did. After all, I thought it was going to be the same old step brother book that everyone seems to be writing. The main characters were awesome and Levi was sarcastic and crass; I adored that dirty mouth of his. 

"I don’t want to be that girl. The one who falls for a guy’s quick lines and filthy mouth, but I am that girl because Levi is that guy... and I’m falling for him. All. Over. Again."

Vista and Levi haven't spoken or seen each other after four long years; after the night of the their parents wedding and the night Levi broke Vista's heart. Fast forward to present day, Vista is all grown up and on her way to starting her own physical therapy business. There's only one thing standing in the way - Levi. As a professional soccer player, Levi is under scrutiny in the media. Oh and he just so happened to break his leg. Hence why Vista is needed. 

“I’ve spent the past four years trying not to think about you,” he says, his voice low and husky in my ear. Closing my eyes, I listen to his soft voice, powerless to argue when he’s this close, his body touching mine. “You’re a siren, calling to me in my dreams. No matter what I do, I can’t escape you.”

She only has to help him for one month rehabilitate his leg. Then she can walk back out of his life and continue on with her dreams. But even after all these years, their sexually chemistry and tension hasn't dampened. Levi thinks they need to have sex to  flush it out of their systems. Will Vista be able to separate her feelings and do what Levi wants? The billionaire, soccer player manwhore and the girl who might be more than just another notch on his bedpost. Because she might just have his heart. 

"Growing up, I always got what I wanted. In that sense, I am my father’s son, and what I want now is her. All I have to do is bide my time and eventually, she’ll come. In more ways than one."

Overall, if you're looking for a witty, lighthearted read, this is the one for you. What more could you want? A hot soccer player, a strong heroine, a twist you won't see coming, bastard fathers, and a plot that will keep you reading until the very end. I certainly enjoyed myself; I also wouldn't be opposed to more Levi. That guy is HOT. 

“You can run, you can hide, but I’ll always follow. Always.”
