DREAMS OF 18 by Saffron A. Kent is available now!
Violet Moore is in love with a man who hates her.
Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.
On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself
at him, causing the biggest scandal of their sleepy suburban town.
Now, everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared.
Rumor has it that he’s been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone
and in isolation.
But Violet is going to make it right.
She’s going to find him and bring him back.
No matter how cruel and mean he is. Or how much he hurts her
with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won’t give up.
And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his
sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body,
touching her, feeling her skin…
The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss
Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually — again.
Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad,
Even though that’s all you ever dream about.
Age gap is a difficult trope – you either like it or you don’t. If you are looking for entertainment and nothing else then this is for you. Violet had a major crush on her new neighbor 34 years old father/high school football coach. The problem is said neighbor doesn’t even know she existed until 2 years later on Violet 18 birthdate she kissed him. All hell broke lose after that. He moved away but Violet is determined to track him down. She wants to apologize but she also wants more than that. Does he want the same thing? This is a forbidden / taboo romance. I enjoy the angst, the desire and passion, the steamy sizzling romance between them. I did not connect with Violet that much because I thought her dialogues are too childlike. I don’t mind the age gap at all. It’s hot in a way but I was hoping the heroine is more mature. Violet is very sweet, shy and a bit quirky. Graham is broody, sexy, has a good heart and pretty amazing. Over all, a little slow for me however unique and beautifully written.
