Review: Based: A Stepbrother Romance (Extreme Sports Alphas), by B. B. Hamel Reply


4 out of 5 Stars

Available For Purchase On:



This was a interesting book to read. Now there were some areas that were a little slow for me. And for some reason I kept feeling like I had already read this book. I did enjoy how the relationship grew between Lincoln and Aubrie. But there were some questions I had while reading that were never answered which made me feel a drift. Maybe I just didn’t really connect with the story line. I’m not a person that likes to read sports romance and I have such a major fear of heights so that could have played a part in no being able to connect with this book.

Lincoln “Based” Carter doesn’t care what anyone thinks. He’s an arrogant, protective a**hole and the most famous extreme sports athlete in the world. His idea of fun involves jumping off of skyscrapers and parachuting between buildings.

Until the day he crash lands through a car windshield.

When I come home from college that summer, I’m surprised by the grunts of my hot-as-hell stepbrother working up a sweat during Physical Therapy. All in front of the camera crew that’s filming a documentary about his recovery.

He walks with a cane, but that’s not why I think of him as a tripod.

We have a history, but we can’t be together. And yet I spend all day fantasizing about his tight white T-shirt clinging to his ripped body. His constant cocky teasing and ooze-sex-grin is driving me crazy.

I’m supposed to be the good girl. But he makes me want to do things I never imagined before.

We’re stuck in the same house, and I’m afraid that if I let him get any closer then we’ll both drop right over the edge.

Based is heart-racing flirty, knee-crossing dirty, and oh-so-wonderful steamy. It’s recommended for audiences 18+.

Based is a standalone, full-length novel. No cliffhanger. Happily-ever-after ending.
