Title: Her Best Friend’s Dad
Moving back home was never my plan. Except here I am, struggling under my evil step-mom’s crushing thumb while I look for work. I feel just like Cinderella, but I never expected my best friend’s DAD to be my prince.
He’s just as hot now as he was when I was a teen; maybe hotter. He’s also rich and powerful, and when he offers me a job working under him at his company… I can’t say no. I don’t WANT to say no.
All our flirting is bad enough–we can’t get caught, my best friend would hate me–but then we go too far.
Hiding our relationship was one thing…
How the hell do I hide a baby?
Penny Wylder’s first full length novel! It’s all the fun and filth you expect, just a lot more of it! This story has a romantic core and a happily ever after that will make you melt.
It is a dangerous move, I know, to bring Lia in as my secretary. I know she is the forbidden fruit, and that maybe this is my mid-life crisis starting to hit me, but I want her. “I need her,” I tell my reflection. “I have to have—”
“Mr. Huntsworth, your new office assistant has finished with human resources.” My chief of security sounds amused as his voice plays from the speaker on my desk.
She’s on her way up. The thought repeats itself in time with the aching in my cock.
“You wanted me to call you when she was being shown her way to the executive office floor.” The line goes silent. My fingernail catches on the red disc of a call button beside the vanity in my bathroom. I press it, wait for Brian to answer, and then thank him for the notice. There’s no time for me to get my libido in check, so the best I can do is sit down at my desk to hide the reaction Lia evokes from me.
I wait at my desk—one minute becomes two, and then it’s soon five minutes before I hear muffled voices outside of the security clearance down the hall. I try to focus on the paperwork in front of me. The chirp of a badge being swiped lights up a blue LED on the panel beside my phone, giving me a warning that someone will be entering. Only a handful of people have clearance to get in here, and most of those require the security guard in the hall or someone inside to buzz them in. I look up.
Lia stands before me, shifting her weight from one foot to the other. “Hi.” Her voice trembles before she steels herself and repeats it more surely. “Do I call you Mr. Huntsworth?” She has her head tilted down, and she looks up at me through the sweeping edge of her bangs. Her lips part, and the tip of her tongue glosses over them. She’s nervous, and I selfishly hope it’s because of me.
“Beck is fine unless I happen to be in a meeting. ‘Sir’ works too,” I tease.
Lia blushes before rolling her eyes. She even does that artfully. “Thank you for the job,
The way she says my name makes my cock throb. “I should be thanking you for accepting it, Lia.” I stand and offer her my hand. Her fingers are cool as they slip into my palm, and the shake we share is anything but innocent despite the chaste touch. I want her grip to be lower and firmer, and with the quick dropping of her eyes, I sense that her thoughts are moving in the same direction.
EEEEEEK! I am so excited over the age gap here. Beck is an older, single, businessman with his life together. It’s seriously hot! His twenty-something daughter is best friends with Lia, who has secretly lusted over Beck for the longest. Even as a kid she had a huge crush on him. Taboo alert creepin’ in!
“I don’t want to give you a big head, but I’ve wanted to marry you since I was at least ten. It’s always been you.”
Even though Lia is half Beck’s age, she is still really mature with a good head on her shoulders. I liked that about her, it wasn’t over the top ridiculous that she was so young compared to him. When a business opportunity falls into Lia’s lap, thanks to Beck, she has no other choice but to take it. With troubles at home she just needs to make money and keep the peace.
Just when the sexual tension couldn’t get any higher, or complicated for that matter, Lia’s hot silver fox is now her boss. So not only is she having sexy times with her best friend’s dad but also her boss. Double whammy going on here!
Beck’s daughter is no saint either. She has some little, okay-huge, issues of her own. Lots and lots of drama going down causes tension everywhere. Family relationships are on the verge of being split up, hurt, and angry over things to come. But no matter what Beck is owning his responsibilities in every alpha way possible.
My rating: 4/5 stars
