I met him on the shittiest day of my life.
And being arrested for prostitution wasn’t the worst part.
Legend had it my new stepbrother was called Dynomite because, well, he spewed like a raging volcano.
That only made me hate him more, thinking about his damned volcano. I loathed him and his arrogant vanity, his smug self-assurance. Dyno Drummond had no reason for vanity as far as I could tell. He was just an outlaw, a horse that couldn’t be tamed, a down and dirty vaquero who dreamed of being a rodeo star.
He busted his way into my life, my house, fucking everything that walked. Not me. I was Miss Squarepants, Head Bitch, holier-than-thou cheerleader who couldn’t be touched. Dyno called me a Force-Me Queen. If only I knew what that meant.
My football playing boyfriend was a brainless goon. My BFF coveted and loathed Dyno just as I did. Dyno’s only friend was the alcoholic Native American, Sequoia, the kid on the fast track to nowhere.
Seven years ago, the shit hit the fan. Dyno left, did a few tours as a SEAL, and came back different—decorated, mature. He thinks he’s tough enough to rejoin the circuit and become a bareback bronc champ again. He thinks he can break me, too. Well, he’s got another thing coming.
I don’t break easily.
Go to my room.
Here’s What Several Reviewers Had To Say:
Ok…after reading Layla Wolfe’s naughty and raunchy biker series (both the gay and straight ones!) I wasn’t sure what to expect with a “cowboy stepbrother” romance. What I got was brutally funny in parts, nasty and depressing in others and basically a really very different type of read with romance as a supporting character to a wild coming-of-age story between two horny teenagers.
Dyno was such a great character…a cocky, hottie of a rodeo cowboy who at 17, was knocking everyone’s socks (or should I say boots) off and was working his craft on the ranch owned by the man who married his mom.
April was said rancher’s spoiled and entitled daughter, who was a HS cheerleader by day and a heartbreaker of a hussy at night (as much as she could be being a virgin and all). When her widowed dad marries Dyno’s mom and they try to make one big dysfunctional happy family, things get crazy and the events that follow go from purely insane to tragic pretty fast.
Add in Sequoia, an Indian and friend to both Dyno and April and a town full of racist cowboys who think they are better than everyone else…and you get a whole lot bigger mess than two stepsiblings falling for each other.
“Uncle Marcus” is that sort of sub-human being you just want to gut-punch in the privates and his behavior towards April and her protectors Dyno and Sequoia was nothing short of heinous and disgusting.
There were so many moments and dialogue that was hilarious (very witty and clever) but there was also some deeply disturbing family drama and incidents that caused a lot of devastation for all parties involved and made their road to happiness a lot sweeter.
I really enjoyed this new “step” book quite a bit (I learned a ton about the workings of rodeos) and would recommend it if you want a different kind of romance that spans from teenage years to adulthood and has some hot, sexy cowboy action to boot.
I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

David ” Dynomite” Drummond is trying to make it in the CCPRA. This is his dream for the future. Just a few weeks left of school and he would do what it takes to make this happen. His life had been turned upside down lately. After a brush with the legal system his dad sent him to live with his mom and new step-dad and step-sister. His step-dad could help his dream come true. He knew he was good at riding horses and he worked hard but maybe a little help could help.
April Pleasures was the youngest daughter of a powerful rancher. Her dad liked to think he had her life mapped out. Here of late she had become really rebellious. Her mom had died six months ago and she just couldn’t adapt to the never ending changes going on in her life. On the outside by the looks of her you would think she had it all, but looks can be deceiving.
When Dyno first met April they were both having a bad night and they mixed together like fire and ice. With the roles changing from minute to minute. They were evenly matched in the verbal sparring department. They didn’t know after that night their lives were going to be intertwined.
Dynomite is exactly that a book with an explosive storyline. Layla Wolfe brings the characters in this story to life with her words. The responses the characters have to the situations is believable. The many twist in the story kept me interested and not a boring minute. I couldn’t quit reading. Layla Wolfe did a great job bringing this storyline to life with her words. Loved every minute and great read.

This will lasso you in and will not let you go. I loved all of Layla’s MC stories but this one will blow your mind. I haven’t read only a hand full of cowboy romance but this one opened my minds to the cowboys. I should say I will not spoil any part of this book because any one thing will give to a taste of this hot, bad boy romance. Dyno is street smarts, alpha, bad boy who keeps his heart behind a wall. April is a complete opposite.
If you love bad boy, alpha males ego, family drama, forbidden love, broken hearts and second chances you will love this story.
