Taboo. Wrong. Off limits.

I know the drill. I know the rules.

But damn, if he doesn’t get under my skin.

And into my bed.

There’s no reason for a woman like me-

successful, established, independent-

to ever be sleeping with a younger man.

A younger man with a hard, rugged, sculptured body.

A body that can go all night.

All night.

I can’t resist, can’t turn him down.

Can’t walk away.

Because I’ve never known pleasure like this.

Chase Nolan walked into my life and disrupted my perfect little world.

And made it so much better.

Enjoy it while you can, Jillian.

Because there’s no way there’s a future for us.

After all, is he barely even legal?

***Disclosure: I received a copy in exchange for a review.***

What’s Good: older woman & younger man hooking up for hot sex- what could be better?  At least in theory.  Story flows on a pretty even keel once it gets going, mostly via Jill’s inner monologues about… everything.  Despite the overload on angst it’s generally amusing and does get pretty funny at times.

What’s Bad: takes forever to get started.  Spent too much time on doses of angst and things I guess the author was cute before finally getting into the story.  Seemed pretty odd in the age of MILFs for an attractive, horny thirty-something woman to still be so self-conscious, especially with a gorgeous younger man drooling for her.  This story played into the cliches & tropes way too much.  And I still don’t see how someone obviously over twenty-one was being mistaken for barely legal.

Sex scenes were brief- very brief and whils steamy, lacked steam.  Sensual but non-specific, and all too short.

What’s Left: an amusing, erotic and sweetly romantic story that could use a little more steam and explicitness.

3.5/5 stars
