In a Flutter: Heartfelt and sexy!
I am meticulous. Structured. A single father.
I obsess over things and crave control.
And when a hot, feisty little woman throws a wrench in my carefully laid out plans, I lose my mind.
My every thought revolves around making her bend to my will—until they become less about her doing things my way and more about just her.
My name is Trevor Blackstone.
I am an obsessive, complicated, demanding man.
People may not understand me, but it doesn’t stop them from wanting me.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in Tampa Bay, Florida, in and around Trevor and Lucy’s homes.
Characters: The main characters in this novella are Trevor and Lucy. Trevor is a genius with numbers but interactions with the opposite sex doesn’t always work out in his favor. Lucy’s a kink in his well thought out plans but he can’t seem to get her out of his mind. Every time they interact she gets under his skin and helps calm his mind. Can Trevor actually get his happily ever after even though this is his second try? Or will his business get in the way of the only person who could improve his life?
Plot: This story is a romance between an older man and a younger woman.
Writing: This novella is written in first person points of view of Trevor and Lucy. This is the first story in the Four Fathers series, although you do not need to read the stories in order.
Curb Appeal: I love this cocky smirk on this cover! I love the colors and how the hero is showcased as well! The blurb gives some information but it barely scratches the surface of who Trevor or Lucy are.
Ultimately: I loved Trevor! He was a cocky demanding man but he was vulnerable and had his fair share of upsets in his life. Lucy was a no-nonsense girl who fell hard for his banging body but also his beautiful mind! All in all, if you are in the mood for an alpha male whose head is spinning like a top due to his girl, and a heroine who has fallen fast and deep, then check out Blackstone!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
