For years, he was a part of my life. I watched him rush to the hospital countless times, his beautiful surgeon hands racing to save lives.
After all this time, I can’t escape the truth.
I want Dr. Lowe.
Lust chokes each moment we’re together. He promises to fulfill my fantasies—every dirty, naughty desire we can dream up.
Only, I can’t have him.
He’s confident. Experienced. Seductive.
And he’s my ex-boyfriend’s father.
This was my first age gap romance read & it did not disappoint. However I feel like the story lacked a bit of depth it was very steamy & cuteS so if you’re looking for something that will give you Fanny flutters & not too deep then this is the book for you!
Amazing Character Development
I love a good age gap romance. Even better, I love a good really steamy age gap romance. This book managed to have plenty of really well written smut scenes without overtaking the story. Too often I’ve read books where the smut ends up being the plot and the real plot is lost. But this book’s steamy scenes are written in a way that makes it seem natural to happen as apart of the plot and makes the story flow smoothly. Greg is one hot controlling man and I’m obsessed.
This book doesn’t exactly have a solid plot, but more of an abstract one that takes the form of character development. And I love it when character development is done right, and boy, is it done right in this book. There was also no plot holes in sight, and that’s always a rare plus. All loose ends were tied between all characters, no side characters even left out. Preston learns to forgive Greg and Cassidy by overcoming his selfishness and neglect, Cassidy does some growing up herself as she learns to be more mature, Cassidy’s mom overcomes her prejudice from her own past and learns to be more accepting towards Greg as she is happy for her daughter, and Greg has learned from his past mistakes as a horrible father and selfish man to become a better father and better lover. The big themes here were forgiveness and acceptance and growing up, as shown through the development. The ending had a very fulfilling end because of the closure we received. The writing was also superb and detailed.
What I didn’t like though was the appendicitis part. It’s even mentioned in the book that Cassidy has never been sick, and suddenly this happens? It just kind of felt forced in to have something substantial in the plot to make up for the lack of action. And we didn’t get to know why she even had it because she was too overwhelmed and wasn’t paying attention, so in this case she plays the part of an unreliable narrator. I can’t exactly complain since the author kind of did make justified reasons to do what she did with the story, making it hard for me to exactly argue about it. And when Cassidy went through surgery, I think it would’ve been nice to have Greg’s point of view when he did the surgery just to see what was running through his mind when he cut Cassidy open to save her life—but that’s the author’s choice.
I had also read Nikki Sloane’s Redemption, which was just as good. Her other stories and even romantic suspense novels seem really good as well, and with this book’s writing and steamy smut scenes, I’m eager to see what her other books have in store.
Wow, such a taboo affair! But have to admit it was hella hot. Their sex life was quite erotic. Nikki never disappoints in her dirty but oh so good stories! This is not the first book I read from Nikki. I’ve been a fan for years.
