Book: Based

Real men don’t give a F**K . . .

Lincoln “Based” Carter doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He’s an arrogant, protective a**hole and the most famous extreme sports athlete in the world. His idea of fun involves jumping off of skyscrapers and parachuting between buildings.

Until the day he crash lands through a car windshield.

When I come home from college that summer, I’m surprised by the grunts of my hot-as-hell stepbrother working up a sweat during Physical Therapy. All in front of the camera crew that’s filming a documentary about his recovery.

He walks with a cane, but that’s not why I think of him as a tripod.

We have a history, but we can’t be together. And yet I spend all day fantasizing about his tight white T-shirt clinging to his ripped body. His constant cocky teasing and ooze-sex-grin is driving me crazy.

I’m supposed to be the good girl. But he makes me want to do things I never imagined before.

We’re stuck in the same house, and I’m afraid that if I let him get any closer then we’ll both drop right over the edge.

Based is heart-racing flirty, knee-crossing dirty, and oh-so-wonderful steamy. It’s recommended for audiences 18+.

Based is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger. Happily-ever-after ending.

My Review 

5 Stars 

Lincoln and Aubrie were step siblings. Lincoln’s mom married her dad years ago and after the wedding and that one special kiss Lincoln split to pursue his base jumping career and Aubrie went to Norte Dame for school. Aubrie only knew how Lincoln was doing because she saw him in the tabloids, commercials and social media. But she could never stop thinking about that kiss.

When her step-mom called her home for the summer to help with a few charity events she wasn’t quite expecting what she found when she got there. She saw him and all the feelings she had buried came right up to the surface and she knew she had to stay away.

Lincoln broke into a building one night. Went to the roof and jumped. The wind was a little off and when he came down it just wasn’t right. He ended up crashing into a car and breaking both of his legs. When he woke in the hospital there were lawyers and the police all around. He almost got put back in jail if it wasn’t for his step dad. Who promised to be in charge of him and keep him out of trouble while on probation. If only he would do a documentary about his recovery. So his only option was jail or go back home and have a camera crew follow him around while he recovers. But when she came walking through the door he knew things were never going to be the same.

They both had chemistry they wanted to keep to themselves but could they? Could things work out for them when his step-dad was breathing down his neck trying to control his every move? Or could a gain in Lincolns control be the answer to everything? Then the magical moment they shared happened again this time could they just walk away?

If you love a good stepbrother romance then this is for you. This book had it all with a hot and sexy tattoo alpha male, steamy sex, and some great chemistry. This book is wrote in both Aubrie and Lincoln’s POV. This is a great story. I look forward to seeing what the author has coming up in the future.

Received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
