10 Great Age-Gap Romance Novels

August 23, 2021 Reviews, Uncategorized Comments (0) 117

Age-gap romances are a whole category of their own inside the romance genre. I can either eat them up like candy or sneak a peek and run the other way. It depends on the specific constellation in the book in question, but maybe some of it depends on my own biases, too. It’s a complicated relationship.

Next month, my 20th anniversary with my husband is coming up. As my kids like to remind us (frequently, with the judgement only teenagers muster over their parent’s life choices), we have a little age gap. All things considered, a seven-year difference isn’t the world and hardly even counts as a contender in the age-gap romance category. But given my barely legal age of 18 when we married, I get why my kids find it gross. I would blow a gasket if one of them started seeing an older person at their current age. Continue Reading

His Lady by Jane Henry and Maisy Archer

August 18, 2021 Uncategorised Comments (0) 14

Cover of His Lady by Jane Henry
Elena Slater grew up on the streets of New York City, as the baby sister of Alexander “Slay” Slater. She knows how to hold her own, and she’s anything but submissive. Sure, all her closest friends are members of The Club, Boston’s most well-respected BDSM playground, and she can’t help but see the appeal of power exchange, especially when it comes to the sexy, ultra-dominant, and much-older Blake Coleman. But that could never be more…

What I liked about this book: Blake is resisting so hard. The age difference is a much bigger thing for him than it is for Elena, something that seems so real. Plus, I’m a sucker for friendships that start online and turn to more.

Content Warnings: domestic discipline, loss of a spouse

For Her Own Good by Tamsen Parker

August 17, 2021 Uncategorised Comments (0) 13

Cover of For Her Own Good by Tamsen Parker
From USA Today Bestselling author Tamsen Parker comes a taboo romance of risk-taking, redemption, and how to give voice to our greatest fears and our greatest desires. "Don't be greedy," he murmurs into my hair, and it makes me all the more desperate."Daddy, I am greedy." When Dr. Lowry Campbell saved my life as a suicidal teen, I thought he was the most perfect man I'd ever known. And then he disappeared for fifteen years.…

Why I loved this book: Tamsen Parker’s writing is just beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Angsty and intense and kinky. I love to really get in the head of the characters when reading a kinky story, and Parker gives me that and more. Daddy kink is always tricky for me, but this books works so well. Plus, she goes the extra mile to take a highly problematic premise and make it good – that’s real skill.

Content warnings: mental illness, depression, suicide

Cover of Act Your Age by Eve Dangerfield
All Kate 'Middleton' McGrath wants is a man to call 'Daddy' in bed. But kinks aren't for everyone. She gets it. They're definitely not going to be for her grumpaholic boss, Mr Henderson. But a girl can dream can't she? Especially when he's always being so goddamn stern with her. Tyler Henderson is a golden boy who's lost his shine. He's old, his dream career is over, his fiancée left him. Now all the former…

Why I loved this book: Wonderful writing and lovely, deliciously twisted kink. Plus, roller derby. The characters are layered and real; Ty a grumpy curmudgeon who tries to do the right thing, and Kate the quirky ray of sunshine with ADHD (hello, sister) who wants to befriend his penis. And the rest of him, of course. This books delivers the whole bandwidth of emotions, and Eve Dangerfield is an auto-buy author for me.

Content Warnings:  grooming (not by the hero), attempted date rape/drugging (not by the hero).

Cover of Control Freak by Brianna Hale
Total control. I need it in every aspect of my life. Some would say that makes me an asshole. A freak. But as long as everything's exactly how I want it, I'm completely flexible. I'm kidding.Okay, I'm not kidding. Lacey needs someone in her life who's bigger and scarier than her demons, and she wants that man to be me. Her boss. The Viking in a suit. I hope she understands what she's getting into.…

Why I loved this book: A grumpy Scandinavian hero? YES, please. The kink is rather mild in this one, but the content warnings are heavy: The heroine deals with an eating disorder and self-destructive thoughts.

Avery Hextall, a junior architect at a prestigious firm, is thrilled when his design is chosen for a new performing-arts center--even if it means working closely with his insufferably uptight project manager, Malin Lacroix. When a chance encounter in the boss's office proves that Lacroix is anything but cold, Avery is determined to learn more about the real man beneath the aloof veneer. Despite their growing attraction and their increasingly kinky encounters, the enigmatic Malin…

Why I loved this book: God, there’s so much wrong between these two disaster babies. Like. So much. I wanted to smack them, and then smack them some more, but holy shit, the emotional depth. I was choking on ugly tears all the way through. Note the content warnings, however. For a while, what they do isn’t kink. They have no idea WHAT they do. Everyone is concerned. I was concerned. (It’s what makes this book so good, though).

My new short story, Mistress Marlene is out now. The inspiration for it was something really personal.

Sometimes, I’m wondering if the reason why I can’t let go completely during kinky sexy-times is that I know ogre is doing it to please me. He does his best to impersonate a dominant for me. It doesn’t come easy to him, and there’s always a palpable insecurity underlying his act. Continue Reading
