What happens when you’re attracted to the wrong person?

I didn't expect to feel so drawn to my best friend’s father when I first meet him. It’s unexplainable and most of all, it’s unexpected. He drinks too much, is rough around the edges, and is so obviously into casual sex and nothing more, but there’s just something about him that calls out to me. I’ve thought my heart was battered beyond repair, but maybe I have been wrong.

"There was something so sexual, so carnal, so intense in the way Jensen looked at me.’’

JENSEN She is my son’s best friend and I know he wants more, but I can't help it. Whenever she is around or her name is mentioned I’m turned on. I’m not used to denying myself to feeling so strongly for a woman so young, but she gets me. I can’t do a damn thing to stop these feelings. No amount of alcohol helps. I didn’t think it could be possible to feel so drawn to a woman, but it looks like I have been dead wrong.

"I want her to want me just as madly as I do her.’’

They shouldn’t and yet… They can’t resist each other.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Aideen is about to start a new job and needs a place to stay while she looks for an apartment. Hal, her best friend, currently lives with his father, Jensen, and they happen to have an extra room. Hal never knew his father until recently. His mother got pregnant when she was only sixteen years old and never told Jensen. It wasn't until she got sick and that she even told Hal who his father was. So now, as they are trying to build a father/son relationship, Aideen arrives.

Jensen makes a terrible first impression and Aideen finds that she is uncomfortable around him. He drinks too much. He's moody and can be quite rude. He looks at her in a way that he definitely shouldn't and he is the last person she should be around. But he is also extremely good looking and she finds herself drawn to him and he feels the same way about her. He knows that his son has feelings for Aideen, but his attraction to her is just too strong. And although they both have their issues and consider themselves to be broken people, when they are together they are able to forget everything and just be.

A relationship between the two of them is such a bad idea. They have a lot going against them. First there is the age difference. Then there is the fact that Hal had feelings for Aideen and she has no idea. But probably the most problematic thing is that they are both dealing with tragic events from their past. Aideen suffered a person loss that still haunts her and Jensen still struggles with his military past. As a couple they should have never worked, but they did. Their relationship ended up being EXACTLY what they needed, and to me, they made perfect sense.

This book was a pleasant surprise in the best, dirtiest way possible. 
Good lord. Aideen and Jensen were HOT. Jensen's dirty talk was off the charts. The sexual tension between then will have you thinking "Good lord, just do it already!" Ans then when they actually do you will need a cold shower and a panty change. And while people may think this book falls into the "taboo" category, to me, nothing about their relationship felt wrong. 

I actually don't read a lot of books that are considered taboo and I recently read another older man/younger woman book that I enjoyed, so I was willing to give this one a shot. And I'm so glad I did. Stephanie did a great job with building their relationship and not once did it go down the "Oh this feels very wrong" path.


“I’m the worst fucker, right? I’m going after the girl my son has feelings for. I actually fucked the girl he’s after. Tell me I’m not bad news now.’’

I cringe, but even then I don’t feel it. I’m supposed to be angry on Hal’s behalf, to be disgusted that a man could go behind his son’s back like this, but I’m not. I want to forget everything and Jensen can do it. I want to be wanted, so wanted that all control has gone out the window and I’ve only known this with Jensen. It’s only Jensen always on my mind, even more than Yann these days. It’s Jensen I crave in a way I’m still unfamiliar with.

“I’m just as bad, then. I only found out today and I still want you.’’

He stops breathing before he lets out a long relieved sigh. “You don't want to be with him?’’

I shake my head. “Not at all.’’

He comes back to me and forces me to walk backward as he takes a hold of both my hands and locks my wrists behind my back. He’s crowding me and I’m letting him lead. “Do you have any idea how crazy you make me?’’ He backs me against his bike, my ass pushing against the slick machine as he tugs on my wrists behind my back until I lower my back slightly. “Do you know how dangerous it is for me to feel this way? I’m losing it with you, beautiful. I’m lost on the very edge of the cliff now and at any time I’m going to fucking jump. You better be ready to jump with me and fall,’’ he growls out before he releases my wrists to grab my hips and bring me on the bike, my legs wide open, my back to the handle bars. He throws his long leg over the saddle and faces me before he grabs me again and sits me over him until I feel his thick erection against the apex of my thighs, pushing against my aching core.

I lose all train of thought. I can’t process his words, the way his eyes seem desperate for me. All that’s on my mind is the way his hands feel on me, the way he’s already so hard, so ready for me. All I want is him inside me. Now. On his bike.

“Jensen,’’ I say in a sigh as we lock our mouths in a deep kiss that shakes me whole.

I grip his head, my fingers weaving through his short hair as his tongue battles with mine in a delicious war that sends my blood into overdrive. I move against him, pushing just enough to feel his cock rub over my clit through our jeans.

“I want to hear you scream my name until you’re hoarse, beautiful, and you’re going to,’’ he says in my mouth as he unzips my jacket and takes it off me, sending it to the dirty ground full of dead leaves, dry sticks of wood, grass, and moss.

Stephanie Witter is a dreamer. She started learning English at three, and fell in love with the language. Always with a book, or two close by, she can't spend a day without reading (or writing).
