Author: Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: July 8, 2019

 

A new, sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland.

When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to. 

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.
Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.
His sexy smile nearly melted my panties. 
But…he looked so familiar
As I got closer I realized why. 
He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home. 
The boy next door.
Only now…he was all man. 
I hadn’t seen him in years.
I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me. 
Which I did. Until summer came.
And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year? 

 

 

 

 

5 iScream Cones

"You look in the mirror and see the woman your ex made you feel like—a thirty-seven-year-old-mom. I look at you and see what you actually are—a sexy-as-fuck woman who has a killer rack, curves I want to memorize in the dark, and a laugh that's contagious."

Wow! This story really strained my brain as I tried to put myself in her shoes and think about how I would feel in that situation. My immediate reaction would be a hard no if I was just hypothetically considering it. But, there was already a connection before she discovered his age.

My friends and I joke about being cougars, but most of us wouldn't actually live out the fantasy. The fear of criticism and judgment would be a hard pill to swallow, but if you came out the other side with sexy Ford...might be worth it, right? Try convincing her of that though, she's fighting her attraction to him with everything she's got. Good luck with that, huh? Wait till you see what he pulls out of his arsenal to tempt her. I'm glad she didn't surrender right away because I had too much fun witnessing the back and forth. Their banter was very entertaining.

Two thumbs up and five iScream Cones go out to Vi Keeland for All Grown Up. It was a joy to read. The author's sense of humor is so addictive, she always has me giggling at the antics of her characters. I'm still smiling as I write this review.
