Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.
On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself
Now, everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared.
and in isolation.
She’s going to find him and bring him back.
No matter how cruel and mean he is. Or how much he hurts her
And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his
touching her, feeling her skin…
The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss
Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad,
Even though that’s all you ever dream about.

I LOVED this one! Oh Mr Edwards you stole my heart! I love age gap romances and so this book immediately caught my eye. This is a best friend’s dad romance with an 18 year gap but don’t worry, everyone is legal. These characters, this whole story… I don’t know… it felt a little wild, crazy and unhinged. I don’t know how else to describe it.
This book had everything I love about forbidden romances. There is so much longing and anticipation of wanting something or someone you shouldn’t have. Mr Edwards comes off as offensive and obnoxious initially but of course it’s because he’s really just a responsible guy trying to do the right thing. Denying his feelings for a girl half his age speaks to what a great guy he is even though she was completely legal.
The steam factor is through the roof in this one. This couple definitely have amazing chemistry and the second half of the book seemed like a bit of a sex marathon once they gave in to their feelings for each other. It wasn’t just sexual though. The love and emotion I felt from this couple almost felt all consuming and overwhelming.
This was a great sexy forbiddenromance with just the right amount of angst and I definitely recommend.
