** I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ** This is an my honest review!
This is part 1 of a 4 part series. It is a short and sensual read involving a young man and an “older” woman.
Sidney McDougal is a 32 year old divorcee, who is starting over in a sense. She was able to keep her house in the divorce, but has to get a job. Sidney is able to get a job as a teacher at a Catholic School. Because of this, Sidney feels that she needs to stay on the straight and narrow. Sidney’s ex husband repeated cheated on her. Sidney is scared to dated again, but is also frightened of being alone.
Cade Fisher is the neighbor’s nineteen year old son, who just moved into the neighborhood. Cade shows up at Sidney’s door introducing himself and looking for any repair work. The sexual tension and attraction between the two are instantaneous.
Sidney does her best to forget about or tell herself that Cade is too young for her. Sidney does hire Cade to work on her desk, thanks to her neighbor put Sidney on the spot. Sidney got to see Cade get dirty and shirtless. Then she watched as he got naked and went into the pool. I loved how Sidney’s inner voice kept saying, “DANGER! DANGER!”. Sidney was desperately trying to get him out of the pool. I love how Cade gets Sidney into the pool. I really wanted that scene to continue and felt bad for Cade.
Sidney does often worry about the age difference between herself and Cade and what people would think about them. Her friend finally convinces Sidney to go out on a blind date. Of course, Sidney thought about Cade through out the whole date. Later, Cade comes to apologize to Sidney. She no longer has the desire or willpower to resist him. It get very sensual and erotic between Cade and Sidney. I love when Cade tells Sidney, “You think you have me all figured out, don’t you? You know nothing about me, Sidney. But I’m going to make sure you learn a few things about me tonight.” That is so hot to me!! Cade seems more mature sexually than Sidney.
Some of my favorite quotes by Cade were; “When I’m done with you, you won’t remember your own name. I’m going to make sure of it.”
“What we did just now was only the dress rehearsal, the warm up. I haven’t even begun to rock your world yet, sweetheart.”
If you are like me, when finished with the book you will be left wanting more. So, I definitely am going to read the next book in this series. I want to know what the future holds for Cade and Sidney, what happens with Sidney’s ex husband, I want more romantic, steamy scenes, and so much more. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a hot, steamy read.
