Waiting on Wednesday (87)

Hosted By: Wishful Endings

All Grown Up
By: Vi Keeland
Release Date: July 8, 2019
Book Synopsis:

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? 

Why I'm Eagerly Waiting:

This story sounds really sexy, and I like that it's an unexpected romance.  The heroine wasn't expecting her dating profile to go live, or for her love interest to be her neighbor's son.  There's obviously a mutual attraction, but the age difference bothers her.  I think that it would be interesting to see how everything plays out, because it sounds like she's going to have a tough time resisting temptation. I like the role reversal of an older woman with a younger man, and look at that book cover!  It's perfect for the story!

  8. I enjoy some age-difference romances, too. Fun how it all came about with the profile and then the family vacations homes. :)

  9. I can totally see why you want to read this Lindy! Personally I don't mind an age difference between romantic love interests. BUT typically why they end up breaking up in real life is that their desires and goals for life are so different. I wonder if that will play into the story. ❤️


We love to hear your thoughts, and appreciate you stopping by :)
