A STEP TOO CLOSE by Jaimie Roberts - Release Blitz

Title: A Step Two Close
Author: Jaimie Roberts
 Release Date: September 17, 2015


I used sex to help me forget.
To help me numb the pain.
Because for those few minutes of pleasure, I could shut it all off.
The reminders of all that I had lost. All that I had endured.
Of all that I saw die before my eyes.

I slept with a man I can’t get out of my head. It was supposed to be a one-time thing with no attachments and no commitments. No names were exchanged, no phone numbers swapped. And that was fine by me ... until I lay awake at night, dreaming about that man’s caress. Wanting and yearning to feel his touch once more.

But one day, my fantasies of seeing this man become an all-too-consuming, nightmarish reality. Suddenly, he is in my house, that cocky grin of his silently promising more to come.

And the reason being? His father is getting married to my mother. We are going to be family.

I am in the seven circles of hell. His look alone consumes my soul and makes me beg for more. He wants me and is determined to get me. I’m his obsession, and I’ve just become a slave to his infatuation ... to the games he likes to play. The games he knows will have me surrendering to his will.

But that’s not the only problem. That’s not the only reason I am living in my own personal hell.

The year before I met my soon-to-be step-brother, Hunter ... The year I made a decision that will ultimately end up destroying my very soul...

I lost my virginity to Hunter’s dad.

Warning: Contains scenes of emotional and physical abuse. Readers with sensitivity to such subjects are advised to proceed with caution.


I can't believe that I will have to go back to my normal life after flipping the last page of A Step Too Close. Why? 

Why did Jaimie Roberts have to create stories that reach into your heart, grab a hold of your soul and for some reason, they never let go? It's not normal. I mean really, it's just unfair that I have to be THIS addicted to a story that I truly did not expect to love so much!

Not to be cheesy but my goodness, this book has touched my ever darkening messed up mind beyond the comprehension of words. I cannot begin to explain how much I could understand every single written feeling and every unspoken word. Sheer perfection doesn't begin to cover it.

So, here we have Ayden who had the first encounter of popping the cheery with Mason. Then we have Hunter who was the guy she slept with a few weeks a ago. We even have a sweet smiling mother who has some very important news to announce - she's getting married. To Mason. Mason, who is Hunters father.


You read that right. 

And that's only the beginning of getting to know how messed up but addictive this story it. 
Just as a side note, have you ever had to fake a smile despite wanting to throw every bit of anger who had bottled up at that person? Well, that's how I feel with Ayden's mother. If only I could reach inside the book and slap that disgustingly cruel smile from her face.

From here on out, we get a novel that has no boundaries when it comes to breaking the readers heart. Or not caring that we'll be needing at least one full box of Kleenex and perhaps some (ALOT) of comfort food to get us through chapter by chapter, or even page by page...

Jaimie Roberts is a world class writer. That's there without a doubt. But with A Step Too Close, I can't not tear up as I say that she literally touched the dustiest corner of my dark, messed up soul. I couldn't thank her enough for creating a story that just thinking about it gives me goosebumps at how realistic the emotions were or how deep the connection was with every single character.

Yes this is a type of stepbrother romance BUT that's just 1 out of the million other aspects that made this books so perfect!

Without spoiling anything or breaking my heart even more just thinking about the adoration I have for this creation, I will leave you with a PROMISE that if you read this book? It will be the best choice you made in a very long time. I promise. Not only is it a fast and easy read, but those dark elements, the twisted parts and the very steamy moments will leave you craving more whilst at the same time scowling at the author for creating a monster of an emotional mess.
