Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author K Webster comes an angsty and emotional enemies-to-lovers gay romance stand-alone!

The hatred began when my father proposed to another man in a shocking moment that rocked my family to its core….

Now I’m on a quest for revenge against my father.

That means hitting him where it hurts - the new fiancé and the son he thinks so much of.

Alister Sommers.

Alis is a bleached-blond perfectionist thorn in my side, who’s used to everything going his way. Grades, money, track - he dominates it all despite his short, insignificant frame.

Was one dad not good enough that Alis had to take mine, too?

Soon, we’ll be stepbrothers.

Until then, I vow to make his life a living hell.

Maybe Dad will regret his terrible mistakes.

Maybe he won’t.

I know I won’t regret wrecking their lives like they did mine.

I’ll give up everything, even my girlfriend and football, if it means I get a chance for retribution.

It’s reckless and risky, but I don’t have much to lose.

The havoc I wreak might ease some of the pain Dad caused my mother.

I’m willing to give it a shot.

What starts as a family feud will become a war…one I plan on winning no matter the cost.

There’s only one small problem.

I may have underestimated my opponent.

Step Brother Romance with some Triggers

Since this title seemed to require it, my review is longer than is usual. I’ve divided it into sections. Please feel free to skip over any sections that you care to.

Trigger Warning: One of the main characters suffered traumatic levels of neglect and abuse as a child. Even after years of living in a loving adoptive home, he’s still damaged, with frequent bouts of zero self-esteem and abandonment issues. The tale also depicts several nightmarishly harrowing flashbacks.

M/M Romance: Watching sworn enemies Canyon and Alister fencing for position and seeing both of them come to better understand facets of each other’s character makes this a mesmerizing tale. As Canyon starts to recognize homoerotic feelings amidst his flood of resentment for his soon-to- be step-brother, the story becomes even more fascinating. Both boys are nearing adulthood. They are pretty much equal as to the power dynamic in the relationship. For me, those two factors pretty much eliminate any “ick” factor regarding the fact that these boys are romantically involved despite being destined to be step-brothers.

Audiobook Presentation: As to the audiobook factors here, both voice actors are great. Teddy Hamilton has cocky young voice that perfectly fits the athletic and hot-headed Canyon. Meanwhile Greg Boudreaux’s voice has a more overly-cerebral quality as though he’s continually analyzing everything and just barely keeping it together. Also, Boudreaux’s interpretation of the panic stricken pre-teen Alis that we hear whenever Alis has a severe panic attacks is truly heartbreaking.

Flashbacks: Though the flashback/panic attack episodes in this tale are incredibly powerful, part of me wishes that they could have been left out, or toned down in some way. Experiencing them, and understanding the horrifying recollections that plague Alister’s dreams, explains his inability to trust even his own adoptive father. At the same time, its some of the saddest writing I’ve ever encountered. The back-seat author in me wants to believe that the friends to enemies story arc and these boys’ chemistry might well have been enough to carry this tale. Perhaps even a post adoption flashback scene showing Alis somehow getting a wrong-headed impression about just how much his adoptive father loves him.

Plausibility Issues: At several points in this tale I was pulled out the story by developments that I just found hard to swallow. Reader’s should give an author some latitude to tell that they wish to tell but some plot developments (both minor and major) can make that difficult.

Perhaps the easiest such gaff to dismiss was the boys’ Florida school team the silly name, Blood Gators. I’ve lived in Florida on and off since ’79 and have never heard anything called that. While it’s trivial, every time I heard the term I was momentarily pulled out of the story.

Less trivial was Alis’s inability to talk to his father about his concerns. Early on, we never see enough to understand his fears. I ended up having to “chalk it up” to his early pre-adoption parental abuse. Even with that excuse, I almost ran out of chalk (and patience).

Next there was the over-reliance on the teen-male libido. If the boys were as fearful of discovery as they both repeatedly say that they are, then there would have been fewer sex scenes. I’m not against sex, and I enjoyed the frequent encounters here, but after a while it seemed ridiculous for the boys to be engaging in risky behaviors after just telling us how fearful they were of discovery.

Finally, there’s the whole scenario toward the end where Alis is sort of re-absorbed into his bio-dad’s business. That level of immersion without any overt suspicions or carefulness seemed laughably naive. Iif I hadn’t already been so emotionally invested in the main tale by that point, I would have dismissed this book for that alone.

Final Opinion: Overall, this was a sweet enjoyable romance, and an erotically satisfying story. Once one gets past the plausibility issues (maybe just hum to yourself while listening to those parts) the rest of the audiobook is very enjoyable. I enjoyed spending time with the charming boys in the tale, and for the most part, their friends and family. Sometimes people (even fictional ones) are worth the frustration they put you through.

*** Note: This is a fair and unbiased review but in the spirit of full disclosure I received a free copy of this title ***

Good story. Great narration.

This story was actually an enemies to lovers trope that I believed. Too many times authors create characters that are slightly antagonistic, and then label them enemies. Canyon and Alister have good reasons to be enemies and equally believable reasons for that to change.

I enjoyed most of the story until the characters started to act out of character. Alister has survived some very difficult moments in his life, and I can understand his insecurities, but... The author sacrificed his strength of character to further a convoluted plot.

Aside from a collection of really bad parenting moments and Alister's out of character moment, I enjoyed the story. I had to force my suspension if disbelief for certain plot points, but I enjoyed reading about Alister and Canyon getting to know one another. The story wrapped up nicely so I am inclined to recommend this story for anyone looking for an enemies to lovers romance that has a good bit of angst.

The narrators gave a wonderful performance, and I hope these two team up again.

5 Reckless Stars!!!

YA books aren't exactly my go-to read, however, I've been loving K Webster's MM books lately and I was very drawn to the blurb for Feuds and Reckless Fury, so I decided to give it a try and I'm very happy I did.

I really liked Alis, my heart broke by how difficult it was for him to accept that he had a place in his adoptive father's home, which all things considered, was understandable. His panic attacks and his fear of mice (totally there with him, btw) were so poignant and relatable, I just wanted to give him a huge hug and make things better for him. Much as I liked Alis, my favorite was Canyon, though. His character's growth throughout the book was outstanding and I fell for him and how protective and caring he was with those he loved. I adored them together, they had insane chemistry, but it was the cuddling and the being there for each other that made me love them even more. 

At first, I thought this book was going to be darker than it was, but I was pleasantly surprised that while it was angsty and there were so many things happening, there was always that glimmer of hope that things would turn out okay, which is what I look forward when I read books like this one. K Webster managed to make me care for Alis and Canyon, for their parents, for Carrie and Naomi, even for Canyon's mother, who I was on the fence about during most of the book. I even found myself crying during certain scenes, so keep that in mind. It was an emotional, sweet, steamy, angsty read, with lots of twists and turns and a lot of heart that I can't recommend enough. 

Also, while I got an ARC of the book, I bought the audio version since it was out already and I couldn't resist Teddy Hamilton and Greg Boudreaux narrating together. They did a fantastic job bringing Canyon and Alis to life for me, ramping up the angst, the animosity, and later the emotional connection these two boys found in each other.

Another 5 star listen from K Webster

Another amazing MM romance book by K Webster! This was the perfect listen for the first day of Pride Month. I loved Alister & Canyon’s story. Enemies to lovers is my favorite trope & this book totally delivered. Excellent narration by Teddy Hamilton & Greg Boudreaux.

Loved it!

I absolutely loved this story by K. Webster. I've enjoyed many of her MM romance books, with my favorite being Wicked Lies Boys Tell, so learning that Teddy Hamilton would be playing one of the characters, I couldn't wait for release day.
I knew from the minute narrator Teddy Hamilton began speaking that I would love his character, Canyon. Canyon is broody, bitter, and conniving. Hell-bent on making his father's new fiance pay for the destruction of the family he left behind. Narrator Greg Boudreaux was new to me, and he did an excellent job portraying Alister. Alister is an intelligent straight-A student determined to make his father proud. When Canyon and Alister are around each other, their banter, though meant to hurt, is witty with an undertone of attraction that you know when they get together, it's going to be intense.

Wow!

I really enjoyed this book, it was full of twists and turns, angst and love. A very wild ride. If you’re looking for something to read that isn’t your typical MM romance, look no further. The author has a way of drawing you in from the very beginning. And the narrators do an excellent job.

Chips off the Old Block

This is a tale of kids being kids, but then following in the footsteps of their fathers. It is angst ridden, full of fumbling and fondling, which without a good backing to nail the actions to, is just that. Therefore there is no substance or true meat to get your teeth into and keep you hooked into the story to take you to a hopeful and satisfying HEA. Being kids there can be no HEA, just a HFN.

All the MCs are unlikable, so I had no interest in finding the hero or a meaning to it all which made it trite. It seems the more ridiculous the MC's name, the more ridiculous the book.

Chose this book due to the excellent narrators and the good reviews. The narrators delivered, the reviews didn't. My expectations were not met; I was not entertained, just bored by it. I stopped half way through, not wishing to waste another minute of my life on it. DISAPPOINTING

Another amazing love story from great author

Having read few MM romance by K Webster, this book was one click buy for me and it did not disappoint.
Having listened to "Wicked Lies boys tell" at list twice in half a year, I know for sure this will be another one of re-read/re-listen book for me.
I just loved how both MCs were sure of themself but had a vulnerable at the same time, something I everyone can relate to. We are not all perfect and have our own insecurities, it's nice to see their way towards being happy.
And of course any book by there narrators are a good buy in my books.
