REVIEW - My Stepbrother the Groom: A Romantic Comedy (Lexi's Sexy Romantic Comedy Series Book 1) by Lexi Maxxwell

The Book
Release Date: 23 March 2015

He'd be perfect if he wasn't getting married … and if he wasn't about to become her stepbrother. Romantic humor has never been so deliciously tempting. It's been a rough day for Ella Roberts. 

First, her social-climbing mother Valerie dragged her to yet another wedding -- something that always reminds Ella that real life offers few happily-ever-afters. 

Second, Valerie's goal isn't to have fun at the event, but to schmooze clients for the family wedding business that Ella’s hated forever. 

And third (after too much wine, and being mocked by her black sheep sister for "letting Mom bind you with her bitch chains"), Ella gets a text from her latest disposable boyfriend, Chase: NOT WORKING OUT. SORRY. I HAVE YOUR GYM SHOES. 

But things are finally looking up. The handsome, charming, successful man Ella meets at the bar fills her with flutters and makes everything better. Gazing into Nathan Hayes's kind blue eyes, Ella can almost believe that love at first sight is true after all. 

It's too bad that in just two months, Ella's mother will be marrying Nathan's father … in a double wedding with Nathan and his fiancee Natasha. 

She should run from her feelings for Nathan. She should back away and find a new mediocre man to amuse her. But Ella’s been unlucky in love too many times to ignore what she feels … and so for Ella, "taboo" turns to "game on" instead. 

This romantic comedy about love, temptation, and the desires that drive us is the first humorous contemporary romance from Lexi Maxxwell, author of La Fleur de Blanc, Together Apart, A Temptation in Time, and many more. This tale's romantic humor is spot on … and will keep you longing, laughing, and turning the pages in time with your quickly beating heart. 

My Opinion  2 STARS

**My thanks to NetGalley and Sterling & Stone, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is the first time in a long while that i have had to stop reading a book, and I really like the write up for this book as it really sounded like my kind of read.

Ella really annoyed me.  Yes there are a few funny moments, but she never really acted her age and the internal dialogue really, again, annoyed me.  I also do not like anyone trying to break up what is a happy relationship for their own gain.

Nathan did not appeal to me either, he was just plain boring, so I didn't see what Ella saw in him.

The book is only told from Ella's POV and may have been improved should we have had Nathan's POV and made him little more interesting.

I certainly will not be reading any more in this series.
