I have read step brother books from tons of different authors and this book stands out from the others. Most step brother books have more heat then anything. Battling Beckett stands by itself in comparison. Beckett lives with his dad and they are very comfortable. All his life his dad has always told him to becareful because women will be after him because of his money. Beckett goes to an elite high school, he’s the most popular guy in school and the quarterback to top it off. Before Beckett knows what’s happening, his dad is engaged and his fiancé Vivian and her teenager daughter Greer are moving in. Beckett keeps his eye on them and doesn’t really give them the time of day because he thinks they are out to get their money.
Beckett is expected to be nice to Greer and help her along. She sticks out at her new high school like a sore thumb. She is very uncomfortable there. Once everyone knows she knows Beckett, she watched even more by her classmates. Beckett’s team members seem to be smitten with Greer and Beckett doesn’t like it one bit.
Greer is attacked in the bathroom one day and as soon as Beckett hears about it, he changes his toon and tries to protect Greer any chance he can. That only brings more attention to Greer and whomever is out to get her gets even more angry because she wants Beckett for herself.
This book had the reader feeling a lot of different things. I disliked the way Beckett behaved in the beginning but as the book went on I loved him. He is an honest stand up guy and will do anything for this he cares for. Greer and her mom Vivian are very stubborn and work for just about everything they have and refuse handouts. I felt horrible for all the torture Greer endured because of Beckett. I cannot wait to read more from this author. 5 stars isn’t enough for this book.
