Book Review | Stepping Over The Line by Laura Marie Altom (@LauraMarieAltom)


If you love the stepbrother romances of Sabrina Paige, Caitlin Daire, and Krista Lakes, you’ll fall hard for Laura Marie Altom’s tale of forbidden love—a red-hot novel in her Shamed series featuring two tortured souls with an unbreakable bond.

As the chief legal counsel for dot-com billionaire Liam Stone, Garrett Marsden has grown accustomed to being universally loathed. In fact, he welcomes it. Because the bigger the fight, the easier it is to run from his desire for someone he can never have: his stepsister. But when Garrett flies back to Julep, Mississippi, for Savannah’s med school graduation, a steamy encounter makes all his wildest dreams come true—and leads to his undoing. Because that’s when he meets Savannah’s boyfriend.

Five years later, Savannah Boudreaux couldn’t be happier as a small-town Southern doctor and single mom to a young son. There’s only one thing missing. Her stepbrother, Garrett, has just been released from prison, and although he may be a free man, he’s become a bitter shadow of the kind and caring man who once came to her rescue. Now Savannah will cross the line to save Garrett from himself: to prove that he can live his life, love whoever he wants . . . and be a wonderful father to their son.

It’s hot, enticing and just simply sinful.

Garrett has everything in his hands – wealth, and successful career, except for the one thing that he wanted since he laid eyes on it: his stepsister. He tried to fight the emotions and the lust that he feels whenever they were in the same room. But during Savannah’s med school graduation, something happened between the two of them, and it was never the same again. Then he gets to meet her boyfriend. Things happened that brought the two of them apart.

I hated the fact that he just gave up and didn’t fight. He could have set himself free, if he only tried – after all, he was a hotshot lawyer, wasn’t he? He welcomed his fate with open arms, and for five years, he didn’t see Savannah.

Five years later, Savannah was a single mom with a great practice being a small-town doctor. She couldn’t deny it, but the only thing that was missing was his stepbrother. She lost both her best friend and her brother when he got incarcerated. But now, he’s back. She was happy that he was back, but the feelings she had back then, just got magnified, which was the problem. There was no way there would be a repeat of what happened five years ago.

I loved the forbidden romance blossoming between the two of them – they tried so hard to fight it, and I was just glad they finally accepted their fate. Enough steam to warm your sheets, some crazy-(ex) in-laws and an adorable kid – makes this one an exciting read.
