Synopsis:

Meet Kaden Barnes.
Alpha-licious in the most unexpected ways, Kaden Barnes always gets what he wants. Enigmatic and exacting, he's unable to keep an assistant for long. Until Lexie Parker arrives. She's no-nonsense, efficient and all business… She’s also hot as sin and soon starring in Kaden's dirtiest fantasies. When their passion for each other reaches a boiling point, Kaden may think he’s calling the shots, but for this billionaire bad boy, going down easy has never felt so good.  

Lexie Parker doesn't hold back and doesn't beat around the bush.  She tells you how it is with her no-nonsense attitude.  She's started working as a Personal Assistant for Kaden Barnes.  He's difficult man to work for and had trouble keeping PA employed.   

When they first meet, they were mutually attracted to eachother.  Desires and passion to be with one another but they both were not looking for anything serious or so they thought.  Lexie is caregiver to her sister.  Basically the roll of parent to her sister to help her father out.  She has a hard time being in a relationship with someone because of her responsibility to her sister.  But the need to be with Kaden opens her eyes.  Even though he's her boss.  Kaden isn't easy to be with.  He doesn't allow women to get close to him.  He has certain habits and routines that people do not understand.  However, that doesn't stop Lexie.

I enjoyed Kaden and Lexie.  Kaden had his own demons threatening the people he loved. Sacrificed his business.  And Lexie, being strong and compassionate for her family.  She knows that she has to have Kaden by her side.

Excerpt

Kade ignored them and strode onto the wooden dance floor, headed straight for Lexie. Just as he reached her, the song changed to one with a faster beat. She squealed in delight, looking up at the ceiling and lifting her arms in the air, swaying to song. Before her partner could grab her around the waist, Kade stepped between them. “Kade!” Lexie exclaimed, her eyes lighting up at the sight of him. Things had been strained between them all week, so between the exuberant greeting and the glassy look in her eyes, Kade figured she’d been drinking. Which gave him a legitimate reason to get her off the dance floor and away from this guy. “Let’s go,” he said to her. “Hey!” Surfer dude folded his arms across his chest, taking a stand. Too bad for him, Kade was bigger, bulkier, and had more invested to back down easily. “Casey, meet Kade, my big old mean boss,” Lexie said, oblivious to the pissing contest about to take place, Yep, she was drunk, Kade thought, amused despite himself. “She’s not going anywhere,” surfer dude informed him. Lexie looked up at Kade with big blue eyes. “What are you doing here?” she asked, her hips still moving in time to the music, her generous breasts swaying to the beat. His cock couldn’t help responding and he grew hard in an instant. “I’m taking you home,” he informed her. “Hey.” Surfer dude shoved him hard. “Don’t you listen? I said she’s – “ “With me,” Kade said, getting into the guy’s personal space. “And don’t fucking touch me.” He glared at the other man with a look that had most people cowering. One he’d perfected as he’d learned to box and worked out enough to overcome the geekiness of youth. “Now unless you want trouble, as in your teeth all over this floor, walk away now.” “Kade!” Lexie said, outraged. Casey raised both hands in defeat. “Fine. She’s not worth it,” he muttered, before turning and disappearing into the crowd. “I lost my dance partner,” Lexie said, pouting, her pretty hot pink lips turned downward in a frown. Kade wanted to seal his mouth over hers and nibble on those plump lips until she opened for him and he could taste her sweetness. Before he could do just that, she grabbed him around the waist. “Dance with me!” She moved to the music, her soft body pressed sweetly against his, her belly flush against his now raging erection. Kade was many things, but a dancer wasn’t one of them. The crowds were getting to him. The noise was causing a beat throughout his system that was ramping up his nerves. And the lights were causing him to feel out of control. None of which he liked. All of which had caused him problems in the past. He needed to get the hell off the dance floor and find a quiet corner to calm the fuck down. He needed to be alone with Lexie. “Come on.” He grabbed her hand and pulled her along with him, off the wooden floor, past Derek and Luke, who’d gotten themselves drinks and had been enjoying the show he put on. He continued on beyond the crowded bar to a hallway that had a line of people waiting for the restrooms. Shit. A big, red, EXIT sign beckoned at the far end and when he reached it, the door was propped open with a milk crate, letting fresh air into the packed area. “Thank God,” he muttered. “Where are we going?” she asked, pressing herself up against his back, whether on purpose or because of the many people, he didn’t know or care. “Outside for air,” he said over his shoulder. Never letting go of her hand, he stepped outside and walked down a small alley until the music faded enough for him to be able to hear again, which in turn, enabled him to start to calm down. “Oh it feels good out here,” Lexie said. Lifting her long hair up, she leaned forward, letting air blow against her damp neck. “Whew!” She shook out her hair, which had the effect of wriggling her ass. Kade let out a low groan. The woman was going to be the death of him. He leaned against the brick façade of a building and took in the cool night air. Closing his eyes, he breathed in and out slowly, counting upward by four and down by four, until his heartrate slowed to a comfortable beat. He opened his eyes to find Lexie staring at him in silence. Her makeup had smudged beneath her eyes and she’d twisted her hair back into some sort of messy knot, but she’d never looked more beautiful. “Are you okay?” she asked, that perceptiveness he loved about her returning now that they’d had a few minutes of quiet. “I am now.” She stepped closer. “Why, Kade?” He figured she was asking why he was here. “Luke and Derek wanted to come out after dinner.” She shook her head. “No, why not just leave me alone? You could be having drinks with your friends but instead you’re interrupting my night. Why?” She’d inched into his personal space, was pushing for answers he didn’t want to face, let alone give.

Book Tour: Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Blurb
He told me to 'settle, girl.'  He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'  He said I was an ‘easy target.’  That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.  I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. 
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
This is a story about a girl, her stepbrother and another guy who is the stepbrother’s complete opposite.  If it sounds like a cliché, I promise you it’s not.Summer is starting college and she’s going to the same college as Kevin, her stepbrother.  The small detail here? She’s had a crush on Kevin since HS, since before he became her stepbrot…

I’m on the tour bus partying!

The text from my best friend, Ivy, is one of her last. When weeks stretch with no further contact, I travel to L.A. to track down the band known as Rageon and find Ivy.
