Contemporary Romance, Erotic Romance
Rebecca has had a crush on her best friend's father, Jackson Reed, for as long as she can remember. She has always hoped that one day, he'd be her everything—but that could never happen. Besides Rebecca's friendship with his daughter, he's so far out of her league.
That all changes when Rebecca is with Jackson helping Bella through her heartache. Together, growing closer, something might just happen. But be careful what you wish for…
Kissing Rebecca was a mistake, fucking Rebecca was an even bigger mistake, and it can't happen again. But Jackson wants it to happen again. He wants Rebecca. She fires his blood and makes him yearn for things he had thought were far out of his reach.
He's old enough to be her father, but she doesn't care. He's the only one Rebecca wants. When they're together, they cannot keep their hands off each other, and their secret affair begins.
But Jackson is screwing his daughter's best friend. Can there ever be hope of a happy ending?

When you desire the one person you shouldn't...
Rebecca isn't living the life she wants. Her parents have somehow smothered her dream of owning a restaurant by forcing her to run her business their way. Her love life is nonexistent because the one person she wants to be with is essentially forbidden to her. It's her best friend's father and she's sure that he still sees her as a little girl so nothing will ever happen between them.
Jackson knows Rebecca isn't a girl anymore. He's watched her grow into a gorgeous young woman and he's tried to convince himself he shouldn't want her this way. He is an accomplished businessman with an adult daughter and dating her friend would be frowned upon by most of the people in their lives. Yet, he's about to cross the line anyway.
A kiss in the kitchen turns into a full-blown secret romance, hidden from everyone. As the pair get closer, they begin to realize their feelings run deeper than just a lustful crush. The couple will have to decide how to let the cat out of the bag because they can't hide their relationship forever if they stand a chance at having a future together.
I have a thing for the forbidden love trope but I have to say that I haven't read many books with the daughter or son's best friend theme. The hidden love affair in this novella was steamy, to say the least. Our couple can't keep their hands off each other and their passion is evident from the first scene. It's a nicely written erotica with well-rounded characters.
I expected this to be a dirty read and it definitely was, but there was also an emotional side to the story that I hadn't anticipated. Rebecca has some serious issues in her life that she needs to work out and Jackson seems to give her the confidence she needs to make some tough decisions. They were good for each other.
The age difference didn't bother me, but if you aren't a fan of older men with younger women, this isn't the book for you. That much should be clear from the title alone. There is a little bit of dishonesty happening here, which goes hand-in-hand with the forbidden love theme, but there is a happy ending.
I am absolutely open to reading more of this author's work. Four stars!
