The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers by Calista Fox | Rating: ★★★☆☆

As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.

As a new reader of this particular author, I wasn't certain of what to expect from Calista Fox's third (standalone) installment of Lover's Triangle, The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers. I've been on a bit of a romantic kick since the end of 2017, thus making it my mission to explore the many (steamy) options out there. Calista Fox has created quite a name for herself out there in the genre and this was the perfect introduction to her as a new reader.

Although there were many elements of the story that I found less-than appealing to my personal preference, I will say one thing as clearly as possible: The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers was quite the sexy, entertaining romp that I needed to kick myself from a reading slump. It was not your typical erotic romance, instead, it toyed with many genres in between the steamy sexual tension and swoon worthy romance. Primarily, there was a bit of mystery involved in the story of Scarlet, Michael and Sam. And it proves how different matters of the heart can be when developed properly.

Fox captivates her audience with various twists and turns, tossing in just the right amount of tension and more. There's many moments and interactions between Scarlet and the two love interests that leave readers feeling electrified and compelled to read on. You never quite know what to expect from any of the characters--a nice change of pace from what could be an overwhelming amount of over-used tropes.

There are very few romances that tackle a shared romance of three in a way that is intriguing and at least slightly realistic. The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers is that mix of fantasy and reality that will surely leave any romantic flustered, satisfied and attached. Further, the characters each have their own backstory and personality that stands apart from many others in the genre.

(Which, when considering Calista Fox's contemporaries and their knack for overused archetypes and lackluster characters, is something that has to be noted and applauded.)

The most important thing to take in account when reading this book is to remember that it is fiction and purely indulgent. This won't be for everyone but fans of the genre will devour this love story in a heartbeat. Although it has its flaws, the novel itself was exactly the sort of fun I'd been looking for.

Addictive, purely fun and fulfilling, The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers is a worthy addition to any romantic's shelves.
