Synopsis from Goodreads

When your stepbrother is a hot hockey stud with more notches in his bedpost than, well anyone, he’s the perfect candidate to help you gain a little bedroom experience. At least that’s my plan this V-day…

Note: This is a hot and steamy standalone novelette. Contents include One sweet but rough-around-the-edges hockey player who’s going a little crazy. One blunt, knows-what-she-wants heroine who picks through his self-defence. No cheating. Low angst. No stress. And a sweet, melty HEA.

A short story version of this book was previously free for newsletter subscribers, but it has since been heavily rewritten and has more than doubled in length.


The Bedroom Experiment is a quick steamy read, it is full of heat and sweet. Although there is an element of controversy within the story what with the main characters being step-siblings and all!!!

Morgan and Isla didn’t grow up together or even live in the same house even after their parents married when they were young adults. So the moniker of step-sibling is moot for all intents and purposes. However, Morgan felt guilty for his attraction to Isla so avoided spending time with his family as a result.

Isla has the same intense attraction to Morgan and is brave enough to put a plan into action.

The Bedroom Experiment is a really fast read and does little in the way of building the relationship between Morgan and Isla only introducing it. I am looking forward to seeing more of them together as the series progresses.
