An all-new dark standalone romance from the USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Shantel Tessier.


Raylee Lexington Adams is my stepsister and the one woman in the world who can make my blood boil.

She’s vindictive, a lot of crazy, and absolutely stunning.

I hate everything about her except for when she’s on her knees begging me to use her as my own personal toy.

We’ve been playing a game of cat and mouse for far too long. We have used each other for our own sick pleasure.

I’ve ruined every relationship my little princess has ever had. A sure way that she’ll come crawling back to me, begging me for what only I can give her when another man fails her.

But I’m tired of watching others get a piece of what is mine. So, I did what any rational man would do—I staked my claim, showed the world that she belonged to me, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to make her believe it too.


Colton Remington Knox is a man I despise but can’t say no to.

He’s what any girl would call a walking red flag. But I’ve never claimed to be a smart woman when it comes to men. Why should he be any different?

I’ve always managed to hold my own against him. But this time, he’s gone too far. Posting a video of me on my knees for him, for what? To brag? Embarrass me? He’s acting like he doesn’t know me very well.

Colt wants to play a game? I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure I win. No matter what it costs me.

People already think I have no dignity, so why let them down now?

Plot Summary :

Colton has been a Thorn in Rylee's side ever since she met him. He is her stepbrother and the one person hell bent on ruining her. He plays with her, makes her addicted to his games only to destroy her in the end. His last parting shot was to release a tape of her and his friends, eventually ruining the only relationship she had with someone else. He was toxic. Horrible. A bully. But that didn't hide how much she wanted him. How much she craved him and his humiliation. Only he had mastered the art of giving her what she wanted and now she knew that she will never be satisfied with something or someone else in her life. That is what made it so easy for her to hate him.

Overall Opinion :


So I am a huge fan of this author and her crazy heroes and heroines are something to die for for me. But this book was a huge let down for me. Like HUGE.

The book had absolutely no storyline. Like it was just steamy scenes, humiliation scenes one after the other and it seemed like I was reading porn lmao. I mean I have no issues with steamy scenes but I expect better from this author. Her twists and her plot lines are what makes her books so much better. But this was honestly so bad. Like you wouldn't even believe that it was written by her. The book was of mediocre length but the many steamy scenes gave very little part to the actual storyline and because of that it seemed terribly rushed to me.

Now about the Sharing scene. I have no problem with sharing scenes. I get that the hero can be JP and still share the heroine. According to me it totally depends on how the authors writes the scenes and for this book that was not good. The careless attitude that Colton had when he released the tape of Rylee and that scene with his friends, it just seemed like he did not care who she was with. On the other hand his only aim was to break her relationship with her other boyfriend by releasing the tape. I am sorry but that's horribly two faced.

I am good with heroines who like to sleep around, who are confident with their personality but for Rylee she seemed very very desperate. Like horribly so. That left a bad taste in my mouth and these couple of facts that I posted above did not make me like this book even a little. I just wanted to get over it. The lack of storyline , emotions and angst, basically anything and everything except the steam made this book a 0 star for me.
