She’s temptation personified
Nathan’s always been more than just my dad’s friend. I never thought he’d see me as an adult, especially not after avoiding me for so long. But one hug, one moment feeling every inch of him against me, shatters that illusion. Consequences no longer matter—I’m eighteen, and I’m willing to risk everything for my shot with him.

He’s not going to resist anymore
I never should’ve seen Eve as more than my best friend’s daughter. As a cop, I know it’s wrong. It’s my job to protect her from guys like me. Chasing her could cost me my career—not to mention the only family I’ve ever known—but I can’t hold back another second. One taste, and I want her. To hell with the fallout.

I’m a sucker for forbidden love, and even more so when there’s an age gap between the characters. Do I like it in real life? not really, but I LOVE it in my books. When I heard that Brighton Walsh was pairing up with another author under a pen name to write a new series that would be the definition of a May/December, I couldn’t WAIT to get my hands on it. And let me tell you, I marathoned the whole series back to back, that’s how fun and dirty this series is. I had the best time reading the first three Temperance Falls books, and Daddy’s Best Friend is just the start to all the hot and steamy.

“If we do this, we can’t ever take it back. Things are going to change forever. Once I have you, Eve… Once I have you, I’m not going to let anyone else even look at you. You’ll be mine.”

Eve has been having dirty thoughts about her best friend’s father for a while, but she never expects him to return her feelings for him. What starts off as something forbidden and secretive turns into so much more as Eve and Nathan realize just how good they are together, in and out of bed. But Nathan struggles with the fact that he’s so much older than Eve – and he’s her father’s best friend. Will he be able to confront his best friend and prove that he’s all in with the one woman meant for him?

Nothing would matter if it meant I had to be without her. If it meant I couldn’t have her by my side. She was mine, and I’d fight for her if I had to.

If you love taboo, erotic reads, this series is a must-read for you. Each novella is just as filthy as the next, but they’re unique enough that you don’t feel like you’re reading the same story over and over. The sex is seriously hot – trust me, these older men know what they’re doing 😉 I highly recommend reading these if you’re a fan of age gap and/or forbidden romances!
