Step Sisters is an intricate web of betrayal. From the looks of this book and the description, I thought that the sisters grew up together. That is not the case. Two grown women become sisters by marriage. Elizabeth is the brain with the bad boy fiancé. Rachel is the stunning beauty with the acting talent. A ~not so shocking~ betrayal makes them enemies at the beginning.
Even though the sisters are not even on speaking terms their lives run parallel as they gain fame: one with her knack for telling the truth, one for ability to turn heads. The sisters are bound together by parental ties, sibling neutrality, a bad boy lover, old flames, and work contacts. Elizabeth is hell-bent on getting revenge as a gossip columnist. Rachel is living the high life as a famed actress. The destiny of these two women come together time and again and the mud slinging stops when these two realize the are their only allies in a final act together.
I grabbed this fictional book to read thinking it would give me a long break from erotica. I was wrong, I read this entire book in one week. With life trying to distract me from it’s cliffhanger chapter endings. I should say I devoured the book because that is exactly what happened. Rupert James has this uncanny ability to make me love and hate his characters at the same time. I don’t really know who to root for in his stories, but I always end up wanting more when I am finished.
This book is fast paced and very well written. If you loved The Devil Wears Prada you will love this book. Rupert James knows how to tell a juicy story. The characters are flawed in the most believable ways. No matter which sister you side with, Rupert makes you love them both. This book was well worth the time investment for me. I couldn’t put it down.
I received this book from Cleis Press free of charge in exchange for an honest review. This review is in compliance with the FTC guidelines.
