Family Ties by Stephie Walls


Release Date: June 21, 2018

Cover Design: Wicked by Design


With a history like ours, the meaning of the word family tended to tangle into something unrecognizable. DNA and bloodlines didn’t tie us together, and neither did our last names. Various shades of grey blurred the branches of our twisted family tree.

I wasn’t her brother.
They weren’t my parents.
Not that it mattered…

She was off limits.

Portia was my friend.
Then my foster sister.
And she’d always be the love of my life.

Bestselling author, Stephie Walls is a lover of words—the more poetic the better. She lives on the outskirts of Greenville, South Carolina in her own veritable zoo with two dogs, three cats, the Mister, and Magoo (in no preferential order). She would thrive on coffee, books, and Charlie Hunnam if it were possible, but since it’s not, add in some Chinese food or sushi and she’s one happy girl.

Family Ties
Stephie Walls

Family Ties is the second book I have read by Stephie Walls and I am quickly learning she writes emotional journeys for her characters! Family Ties is a forbidden romance that will grip you from the start with all the feels.

Jude and Portia had a lot of history, which is an understatement! Portia lost her mother and was eventually adopted by her foster family. When Jude’s mother is sick, he is placed with the same family as a foster child. This has been the family that raised them both. They were part of a loving and caring family. Though they share no blood, they are seen as siblings.

So, starts the battle faced by Jude and Portia. They do not share blood or last names but share so much else. But when feelings change and become deeper, can they ever have a chance to truly follow their feelings? What is truly right and truly wrong?

Let me tell you, the angst and the feels in this book are all over the place. I am so glad we got both point of views, because in a story like this, you needed it. So much going on, my heart hurt. Will they be able to find a way to be together?
