Say Uncle by CM Steele

Say UncleWhy I read it:  I bought this one on the recommendation of Melissa K. It turns out our Venn diagram isn’t in total agreement.

What it’s about: (from Goodreads)  What happens when:
• your brother rashly goes to Vegas and is going to marry a stranger?
• you meet a beautiful woman on your way to stop him and have thoughts of following in his footsteps?
• she happens to be the daughter of your brother’s bride?

What happens when:
• you meet the hottest man around and he’s your new uncle?
• you can’t resist him?
• he dares you to ‘Say Uncle, again?’

A taste:
“Angel, you’re so perfect,” I breathed. My eyes never left hers as she came up behind me, wrapping her arms around my waist and placed her cheek on my spine. The feelings of completion engulfed me.
“Thank you, Uncle Dean,” she said sweetly.
“Did you just say uncle?” I asked menacingly, and I felt her smile on my back. This woman was too much.

What worked for me (and what didn’t):  According to my reader, the novelette is 49 pages. I made it to page 29. It wasn’t the uncle thing which bothered me – if it had, I wouldn’t have bought it. After all, it’s right there in the title. The way the technical familial relationship was structured didn’t bother me in the least. In fact, I thought it was kinda funny and it was one of the factors that had me one-clicking.
