He’s been divorced for years and is preparing for his oldest child’s wedding when a beautiful young woman runs into him in the resort lobby.
He’s much too old for her, but when his daughter, Karissa, decides – once again – it’s time for him to “make nice” with his ex-wife, he tells her that he’s dating someone. Which someone? He uses the name of the woman he ran into at the front desk.
She’s hiding out at a Lake Tahoe resort for the weekend after catching her boyfriend and cousin in an intimate act. Her best friend, Dalilah Knight, pays for her reservation and all she must do is pretend to be her friend for the weekend.

Did you like this book?
Leah: I did. I haven’t read Alexia Chase before, and it isn’t my favorite book, but I did enjoy it.
Carolina: Yes I did. Damon and Chloe had great chemistry. I loved how Damon encouraged Chloe to explore and become confident in herself.
Who would typically like the book?
Leah: Anyone who likes a steamy age gap. It runs along the lines of a rom-com because there are some really funny parts, but not enough to put it into that category completely.
Carolina: If you enjoy an age gap with lots of playful banter and loads of steam
Would you recommend this book?
Leah: I would, it’s a quick read with lots of steamy moments. I loved the interaction between all the family units which you don’t always get in a romance.
Carolina: Yes. I enjoyed their immediate and natural chemistry. And the steam was so hot!
