Piper Winchester is fresh out of college. With only three weeks until her father remarries and five weeks until her first business venture launches, she’s got her hands full. She certainly doesn’t need any distractions to get in the way of building the future her father’s always wanted for her. But when a familiar boy with bright green eyes walks back into her life, she’s thrown for a loop.

Four years ago, Chase MacKenzie left for college without looking back. He didn’t mean to disturb the peace then, and he definitely doesn’t want to do that now. Once he lays his eyes on Piper again, there’s no way he can leave without fixing what went wrong in the past. Although she’s more determined than ever to push him away, he still manages to get under her skin. Regardless of what happens between them, there’s one thing that will always be standing in their way…

He’s about to become her stepbrother.


~I would like to thank the author, Lilly Avalon, for providing me with a free eARC copy of Can’t Stay Away in exchange for an honest review~

I liked and enjoyed reading Chase and Piper’s story in “Can’t Stay Away” by Lilly Avalon, although it took me a little while to warm up to the story and characters. Chase and Piper had great personalities and I loved their chemistry together. I understood that they knew each other when they were teenagers and hadn’t seen one another in four years, but I thought their relationship moved a little fast in the beginning. Certain things felt rushed, but I eventually warmed up to them and their story and really enjoyed reading it. I loved that it was told from both Chase and Piper’s alternating POV; it was great to see what they were both thinking and how they felt about everything. I liked each of their friends, but did not care for Piper’s father and Chase’s mother whatsoever. I wished Piper had had more confidence and backbone in the beginning to stand up to her father and soon-to-be stepmother, but at least it was better in the end. I did really enjoy the romance in this book and was happy with the ending, even if I wished it went a little farther in the future. Overall “Can’t Stay Away” was a good read and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading stepbrother romances as much as I do.
