Tool, despite my apprehension for the stepbrother theme, turned out to be an enjoyable story! It was the perfect light and fun read. For those of you that could be scared by the forbidden romance, let me reassure you that it wasn’t in fact a case of incest here. The siblings weren’t blood related and weren’t raised together. They both were young adult at the time they first met.
I call him “Tool” because he’s a dick.
Gaige O’Neal is nicknamed “Tool” because of what he’s packing. Rumor is that he’s well equipped.
He’s a cocky, entitled, insufferable a**hole who’s as reckless with women as he is with that stupid motorcycle he races.
It’s been four years since I’ve seen him. Four years ago, he was the bane of my existence. And my best friend, my biggest confidant, my first love.
It’s just my f**ing luck that the first time I see him in four years, he’s buried beneath three scantily clad blondes.
Now I’m stuck here under the same roof with him while he recovers from a racing injury. An injury that clearly hasn’t affected the use of his tool.
The problem is, as much as I despise him, I just can’t help myself. I want to find out what kind of tool he’s working with.

Please beware, the author of this review had a one track mind after finishing TOOL.
There’s a trend I did my best to avoid lately.
Seems like every author and their mother are going at great length to publish their own step-siblings taboo smut story.I never noticed this kind of trend before. I mean, why all of the mat the same time? Why the sudden interest into this particular sibling “interdit”?
To be honest, I’m not a fan of the idea. Or more precisely I’m not a fan of the constant flow of come hither “incest” under disguise. Except in most of these books, that is no incest that it is about, since most of the time, siblings aren’t blood related at all… But it sure pulls that particular string of “forbidden” romance…
That being said, this book was recommended to me by a few friends who’ve read Sabrina Paige’s ‘Prick‘ and thought it was good —in a smutty and light way, good— and entertaining and that it would please my perverted side.
Okay, then, I’m all for that!
About the book…
I read this one super fast, let me be clear that it was indeed a no brainer, but Sabrina Paige’s writing was engaging and sucked me right into Delaney and Gaige story. I went into this expecting little to nothing and was agreeably surprised to enjoy myself.
Now please, calm your tits.
In the history of Fiction, we’ve seen worse than step siblings falling for each others and everything is alright. After all, Gaige is not blood related to Delaney. His mother and Delaney’s father got together a few yeas back when Gaige was 17 and Delaney 15. They both fought their mutual attraction back then, some misunderstanding putting an end to their almost ” relationship”…
Now, I wouldn’t say the same about… You know… Er…
Anyway. Let’s talk about Gaige.
Gage is now 22 and a motorcycle racer, he is hot, famous and surprised to see Delaney coming back “home” from college.
He’s your typical cocky hero. He excelled at dirty talk and had this playful banter going on throughout the book. I couldn’t help liking him the most. He kept showing soft sides of him (NOT THAT soft side. No one is interested in THIS soft side.) and you could see that he was just an asshole in disguise.
Or maybe I liked him most because of the obvious.
He’s named Tool for a reason.
He’s still very interested in Delaney, and now that’s she’s back, he only has one thing in mind…
Delaney’s back to Dallas and starts working at her father’s oil company where her job will partly consist to take care of Gage’s public relations.
She, on the other hand… She got on my nerves quickly.
I didn’t buy her prim and proper act. She downright annoyed me when she continuously tried to reject Gaige with same excuse all over again. She had one or two good come back but otherwise she was pretty subdued…
A huge part of her doesn’t want anything to do with Gaige, but the other one, the tiny one, and maybe the strongest… Wants just this ONE thing.
Now Gaige + Delaney, that was exciting!
I loved their sibling bickering, especially the stupid welcome back present Gaige offered Delaney.
Tool was a very fun read, granted it was focused on the smut side, but it made for a diverting and sexy time. The sex scenes were scorching hot, and Tool certainly delivered.
Sabrina Paige writes about smart, sexy women and the hot alpha males who love them. Outlaw bikers, cowboys, and military men make her swoon. She has found her own happily ever after with her active duty military husband and adorable toddler.
