My Review

I wasn't really sure how I would feel while reading this story or exactly how I would feel after. But let's take on one thing at a time here, lols.

Gas or Ass is a stepbrother story and before anyone says anything. Yes! I know I said I would never see myself reading this type of story and in all honesty I don’t think I will be all up for reading these type of stories going forward but I must say I did enjoy the way Eden Connor wrote this tale. This book was sitting on my wishlist for a “minute” and then the author posted that is would be on sale for #99cents. I quickly grabbed it up, not reading the blurb...I didn’t know there would be step-siblings hanky panky going on until I got a real good look at the title. But I went in anyway because once I read Ms. Connor’s introduction, I was like hell...let’s give this baby a go.

The gist? Let’s start with the title shall we? Gas or Ass is a term some folks use in the South to pay for a ride. You either gonna give me some money OR you gonna give me the booty....whatever suites your fancy, this works for guys and girls here. This is Shelby’s uh….dilemma? when she is suddenly notified by her flighty mother that she is now married and they are about to move into their new home with her new stepfather and his grown ass sons. She isn’t happy about the situation but what can she do? this is nothing new with her mother (well the meeting of a man and getting all stupid in love with him) but to actually get married and uproot her life? and the middle of her senior year? That just ain’t right. But once Shelby meets Caine and Colt, things get a little heated to say the least.

I’m not going to divulge too much information but I will say there is definitely more to this story than these three just getting it on with each other. Eden Connor throws quite the twist in and I have to say I was shocked as hell and very mad on Shelby’s behalf. That’s not to say that this story isn’t erotic as all hell and I will admit I had issues with some of the wordings during the sexual acts (my mind just wouldn’t accept what it was reading...it was “no! no! no!", lols) but overall the story underneath it all is very complex and I know I was able to get over my “ick” factor and continue with it.

Shelby is being manipulated not only by her mother but her new “brothers” too. I felt for the girl, it seems her only saving grace was her stepfather. I couldn’t wait for her to get out of that house and man was I happy when she did.    

Eden Connor tells a story here that you probably won’t think would be in the title of a book called Gas or Ass OR a step-sibling erotic tale. But she did and I’m very interested to see what will happen next. Clever move Eden...very clever. I went into this with the frame of mind that I knew exactly what this story was going to be about. Welp, Ms Connor was like, let me show you something a lil different Sharonda.

And let me just warn you right now, this does not end with a HEA but more like a “I’m Wanna Kill You” ending, lols. Would I recommend Gas or Ass? Yes, I would. I like when author’s throw a curve-ball...make you go “damn! I wasn’t expecting that”. If these are your type of stories then add it to your shelf and even if it’s not, try it anyway. I did and I didn’t die :D
