Levi Black is an s.o.b.
Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, he’s a pretentious, obnoxious, womanizing jacka** who thinks the world revolves around him.
He wouldn’t be wrong.
A famous soccer player, his skills on and off the field have won him medals, trophies, women, and the cover of every heartthrob magazine in the country. He’s broken nearly every bone in his body and a few hearts along the way, including mine—his stepsister—and lived to tell about it.
One night changed everything, and I’ve avoided him like the plague ever since. Just long enough to finish college, to bury the hurt, and to outrun the memories. But now that’s all changed. I’m back, and there’s no more running.
My hands are supposed to be my livelihood, but now they’re my curse. Levi’s reckless ways have landed him in a sticky situation, and his father has given me an offer I can’t refuse. One month, and all I have to do is put my hands on his body. Easier said than done. The problem is, even though I know it’s bound to bite me in the a**, I can’t bring myself to say no to the s.o.b.
When I get married, it's going to be to a man who lives for me,
because if he can live without me,then he's not worth the time
I don't see humor or teasing in his
eyes, just a deep need that I feel
as an ache inside my chest. "You
don't ever have to hide from me."
" You're a siren, calling to me in my dreams.
No matter what I do, I can't escape you."
S.O.B. is my first J.C. Valentine read, I have to say that I was very happy with the storyline. The characters are very appealing and practically written flawlessly.
Levi Black a injured star soccer player, seems to have everything going for him. With his good looks, woman when ever he wants and a dad that runs his life.
Levi's dad, who is a complete controlling ass offers his step daughter Vista Marquis a agreement, to work with Levi and become his personal physical therapist for one month and he will help start her dream business.
Vista is strong, sexy and still carries a heart that was broken by Levi years ago, her plans are to do her job and return home plain and simple ( you would think).
The chemistry between Levi and Vista is extremely sexy, at first it's kind of cat and mouse Vista flirting but resisting Levi with all the strength she can muster. The moment that she finally gives in, it is off the charts hot. It seemed that every moment that they are together it was spine tingling for me as the reader. The love that they have for each other is beautiful, funny and frustrating.
I did not find Levi to be a S.O.B, once his barriers came down and he stands up for himself and for what he wants, it was hard not to fall for his charm.
I did not mind the step sibling relationship with this story, after it's explained it doesn't come off as taboo.
With Levi's dad against this relationship, their faces all over the tabloids and Levi questioning himself and his relationship with Vista, do they even have a chance?
I am so happy that I came across this book, it is entertaining and one of those stories that I did not want to put down.
* This is a very strong sexual read*
