"Wickedly charming, flirty, and clever. This is the ultimate friends to lovers story. I loved it!" (Becky Monson, number-one best-selling author of the Spinster series) 
"You'll want to crawl between the covers of this book and never leave."
(Whitney Dineen, number-one best-selling author of Relatively Normal)

Loveless is more than a name, it's a curse. 

I, Emma Loveless, have a destiny. It's not the greatest of destinies, but when you have a name like Loveless, what can you do? I'm cursed to always be the friend, never the girlfriend. Unless you count my love affair with Duncan Hines, Dr. Pepper, and the ever-lovable Pillsbury Doughboy. They've seen me through it all, but a girl needs more than refined sugar to curl up to every night. It doesn't help that I have a meddling, albeit wonderful, mother who can't help playing matchmaker. Thanks to her, I can say I've been on a date with a felon. Now she swears she's found the one for me, her new optometrist, Dr. Sawyer King. Meanwhile, I'm preparing for the inevitable restraining order. That is, until I meet the sexy doctor and have to admit my mother is right--love at first sight does exist.

Unfortunately, my last name means business. Not only do I find myself in the friend zone, but also the twilight zone. Only in my world would Mr. Right turn into my stepbrother. To top it off, he brings with him a wicked stepmother who will do anything to keep us apart. Despite all this my heart--or is that my mom?--keeps telling me Sawyer is the one. But what if true love isn't strong enough to interfere with my destiny? It'll be me and the Doughboy...for eternity. 

My Not So Wicked Stepbrother is the first book in the Not So Wicked series by Jennifer Peel. I absolutely loved Emma. She's snarky, and fun, and someone I'd love to be friends with. She's easy to relate to, and I love how her mind works. This is an adorable friends to more series where the "more" happens to be in the form of a Stepbrother. They are cute as can be together. I loved their awkward moments as they fought their emotions. It wasn't weird at all, as the two were friends long before they were step-siblings. I love the friendship they have. It's easy and fun... Except for the hiding lustful emotions part of course. That part isn't so easy... on so many levels. But, it sure made for some great reading, or well in this case.. listening. The narrator was fantastic. She really became Emma and with all the attitude that goes along with it, as well as portraying Sawyer properly. She did an excellent job bringing the supporting characters to life too. She was realistic and believable. I'd love to get my hands on the next book. I bet this is going to be an addictive little series.
