This was a short novella that had some light Daddy/boy elements. This novel is met to be a light and easy read. It is sweet and includes the best friend's son trope. The only thing I would have liked to see is more communication between Scott and Elliot. Scott is a Daddy and when they do engage in something more they never have a conversation about Elliot being a boy, it just kind of happens. For someone that hasn't been in this scene before I think a conversation is warranted and this leaves something to be desired. Otherwise I think that the chemistry was very hot between the two men and it makes me eager to read the next novel. I'm very intrigued to know who is going to set Jack's heart beating!
I received an advanced copy of this novel for an honest review.
Moving on to the main characters and the premise of their story, Elliot is in his early 20's, and he is moving to a new city for his new job as a Digital Artist. He ends up moving in with his father's friend Scott, who is 48. During his new living arrangements, Elliot starts to have feelings for Scott that he never experienced with another man before. Whereas Scott, who is gay but both Elliot and his father are not fully aware of his sexuality, has been struggling with his own attraction to Elliot as well.
Now, Scott is a "Daddy" (not be mistaken with the parental sort of Daddy") and Elliot is not well versed in that dynamic in a relationship. So exploring his sexuality and this new Daddy/Boy relationship is a lot. Personally, I think there could have been a bit more dialogue about what that dynamic would entail because it felt like Elliot and Scott just jumped right into without much educational input for Elliot. Just to establish healthy boundaries, I think this could have warranted for that. So, for me I had to take off one star for that.
I also did not care for that bit of revelation from Elliot's father and for the sake of not spoiling the book, I won't go further into detail with what that revelation exactly is. I just felt that is was unnecessary, although I hope that was just him being confused, otherwise that is incredibly awkward considering everything.
For the most part I did enjoy this book, and I am interested in the next installment. I do hope "Fragile" , which I believe to be the title of the next book in the series, will feature Elliot's father finding his own happiness.
Now Scott is 48 and can't even say the word gay. Saying "... you know" even with close friends. Huh? Everyone reads like they are in high-school.
There are so many other inconsequential but irritating things. PTs, physical therapists, aren't personal trainers at gyms. Totally different thing. Sure they'd be qualified, way OVER qualified, but not really realistic.
These things kept pushing my out of the story, but really I wouldn't have liked the story even without it. Elliot was written not really as a boy, but as a weak naive and women. Getting carried around for a sprained ankle, crying over a first kiss... ugh. The author needs to go back to writing MF Victorian era romance. I have read daddy kink and age gap books that I've liked, but this really missed the mark for me.
