Ever since Melanie's mom married Kurt's dad she's had the hots for her gorgeous, off-limits stepbrother. Knowing that Kurt feels the same way doesn't help her lust but through an unspoken agreement they ignore their forbidden feelings. Then Kurt drives her to a modeling shoot for an exercise book and winds up volunteering to model as her partner. What neither of them know is that the exercises in the book are all sexual--a modern Kama Sutra.

Melanie tries to ignore the sparks flying between her and Kurt, even when they have to get naked and pose for pictures that are both explicit and erotic. But how can she resist her sexy stepbrother? Will she and Kurt be able to keep from breaking the most forbidden taboo of all or will they give in to temptation in order to get every shot Picture Perfect?

Publisher's Note: While Kurt and Melanie have no blood ties and their relationship is fully consensual, some readers, particularly those with a history of sexual abuse or incest, may find this story disturbing. This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Exhibitionism, sex between stepsiblings, voyeurism.

Delicious and naughty, PICTURE PERFECT will make you hot and squirm in your seat.

Melanie has had a crush on her stepbrother Kurt for five years. A chance encounter in the bathroom increased their sexual awareness of each other, but out of deference to their parents' feelings, the two kept the attraction under lids and tried to behave as siblings. When Melanie pursued a modeling job, Kurt drove her to the venue as the place wasn't safe for women alone. Once there, the photographer, a famous one that had Melanie all agog at the chance to work with her, cajoled Kurt into modeling for the pictures together with Mel. What Mel didn't know was that they were to assume sexual positions for the pictures...

Evangeline Anderson used the natural tension of attraction between stepsiblings in this story, the thrill of doing the forbidden, yet they couldn't help their yearning for the other.

Kurt was a great hero, with strong principles, and it was obvious he really cared for Melanie, while Melanie was clear about what she wants and why it wasn't bad. She was right in that there was no blood relations between them, and the only thing stopping them was the dictates of society and their parents' regard. But once they'd tasted the forbidden fruit, there was no way they could have just that one taste.

The sexual tension was phenomenal and the passion was hot. Ms Anderson sure knows how to draw you in until you're hot and bothered like the characters. The only thing I didn't like about it was the way the author has of making her characters split hairs as a way to ease into the final culminating act of sex. Putting his cock into the woman is ****ing, no matter that it's only an inch or so in or that there's no movement. I'm not sure her characters buy into it either, but hey, they needed a reason to have Kurt take that step while easing his conscience that you know, he's not really ****ing her. Ms Anderson used this same technique in FORBIDDEN, where it also irritated me.

But other than that, Kurt and Melanie were likeable characters that you couldn't help rooting for them to have their HEA. PICTURE PERFECT is a hot and fun, sexy read that is perfect for a cool afternoon when you need some heating up.
