W is for Winter (Winter Renshaw)
The next day, Wilder decides that he has not had enough of Addison and they keep hooking up.
Then, they find out their parents are getting married and they will be step-siblings.
When I read the book blurb, I imagined the characters differently. While I appreciated the explosive between-the-sheets chemistry, that is not enough to base an entire relationship.
I thought that Wilder seemed immature. He was too much of a dominating alpha male and super needy at the same time.
Even with that, I was planning on rating the story 3 hearts ♥♥♥.
THEN, the whole plotline where their parents were getting married emerged. Up until now, I was only slightly annoyed with Wilder’s erratic emo tendencies.
Addison and her sister freak out as if being step-siblings would make them appear to be hillbilly. Ridiculous!
By this time, she is in love with Wilder.
She is going to throw it all way FOR WHAT?
Nothing that made sense to me. Hence the story lost another heart ♥.
Step-sibling romances are not taboo if they did not live/grow up together. They met as ADULTS! It was not that serious. A good PR person could have been able to spin any possible fallout if there had been negative publicity.
