Publisher's Summary

It started off as a dare...a harmless one-night-stand with a complete stranger. He was just another bad boy I met in a bar, a harmless fling to start my summer vacation. One unbelievable night of sex, and I'd never have to see him again. But the next morning as I pull up to the lake house my mom has rented for the summer, I get the feeling my world is about to crumble...it was just supposed to be us girls - me, my two sisters, and Mom...but we're not alone....

Apparently my mom's old high school sweetheart John owns the house, and he has three sons, all around the same age as me and my sisters. And they thought it would be a great idea to put us all together under the same roof for four weeks. We'll have to share bedroom walls, sit down for family dinners, and suffer through a million other forced, awkward, sexually confusing family activities I'm sure...and then I realize my mom's new boyfriend has a son a little older than me.

I see him barreling toward me on a four-wheeler, a lit cigarette between his lips, strangely familiar tattoos on his muscular forearms and chest. As he gets closer, I'm filled with dread as I begin to realize who he is...but he isn't slowing down. The f - king prick nearly runs into me. As he takes off his helmet, I'm instantly filled with horror and an undeniable twinge of excitement between my legs. It's him. The man who took me last night, used me every which way, stretched me more than any man I've ever been with before...and now he's ignoring me, acting like he's never seen me before in his life. I have a feeling it's going to be a fun summer.

This contemporary new adult stepbrother romance novel is the first book in the three book Hawthorne Brothers series. The ending is HFN. The book contains harsh language, sexual content, and adult situations that may offend some listeners.

    "Audio quality was the worst"
    What disappointed you about Stepbrother Bastard?

    The audio quality was awful it was the worst I heard in all my audible collection which is extremely large ( over 200 books ) I don't know who produced this audio and or who approved it .. but they need to get another job.It is such a shame as this is a good story & a great author but they ruined it ...


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story was great as are all Colleen Master Step Brother books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Eli Walker?

    Elizibeth Hollis would have been great or Piper Goodeve


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes .. The story was great... my issue are with the quality of the audio . gap in speaking,echo's It sounded like my 5 year old niece recorded it ...

    "Do audio books go thru edit?"

    this was an ok story - H not really "bastardly" and h very wishy washy

    This book must have missed the editing line. ALL thru the book lines were repeated lines were repeated. The narrator also stumbled quite a bit over words. Maybe had she slowed down instead of speed reading she could have been better. I might have even enjoyed the book more if it weren't for these distractions. If you want to read this book, save the credit and READ the book, don't listen...don't listen...don't listen.

    "Very Dissapointed"

    Not worth a credit!The story itself was ok. Short and quick. The quality of the audio book was the worst I have listened to. Sentences were repeated several times during the book. Sounded like the narrator was in a tunnel while reading. The narrator itself was distracting. She rushed the whole time.

    "WORST Narrator ever !"

    are you kidding me ? I just started the book. I don't even want to finish it. I never had a bad experience with the narration before, I should have read the reviews. it was a waste of a credit. I'm so mad for Audible to even have this up. I definitely will be looking out for her name before I get another book from her.

    "Believe The Reviews !!"
    What disappointed you about Stepbrother Bastard?

    Audible Friends.... believe the reviews on the narration quality of this book.
    Not sure how this one passed Audible's quality test.
    You will be disappointed if you use a credit : (


    What do you think your next listen will be?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eli Walker’s performances?


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stepbrother Bastard?


    Any additional comments?

    "My Ears are Bleeding!"

    This is a terrible listen. There is no editing which means every time the narrator notices a mistake she rereads it leaving in the portions that are read incorrectly. She cannot pronounce many words, including common proper nouns. I had a hard time getting to chapter 3. The word "Scathing" was mispronounced so many times I can't even believe it's in there so much!

    It may be a good read but I sure couldn't listen to it and I want my $1.99 back....should have been less than free. Totally disgusted!

    "No editing!!!"

    There was no editing done on this book. The narrator mispronounced words and read incredibly fast in some areas.

    "Who edited this?"
    Would you try another book from Colleen Masters and/or Eli Walker?

    Yes I would try another Colleen Masters book. I made the mistake of previously listening to Eli Walker and ordered another book. She talks too fast!!!!!!!


    Would you recommend Stepbrother Bastard to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure. Ok story, just read instead of listen.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The editor left in A LOT of the narrator's "errors" in the beginning. I was half tempted to turn it off and request refund within the first 10-15 minutes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Stepbrother Bastard?

    Other than the errors and talking too fast to really feel what's going on?

    "bad narrator"

    The narrator was horrible, but loved the story. Narrator read the story too fast and missed up on part of the recordings. Almost stopped listening because of narrator.
