 BIRTHDAY GIRL BY PENELOPE DOUGLAS
I'm not even going to write up my review how I normally would, just go in blind, enjoy, love like I did, this surpassed all my expectations, it easily went from a 5 star to jumping onto my favourite shelf of 2018. And that alone should tell you how much I loved this book. Get ready to swoon because swoon you will!! Pike crash landed into my heart the very first chapter and he's still there even after I inhaled that last page. A bittersweet feeling that my time in this book has ended. I wholeheartedly recommend this book!!

Is it so bad that I didn't even read the synopsis or really take note of the cover, the name of the author was enough to want me chase this book, this book had everything that I love in a book, the angst, the feels, god this author is known to throw us under the bus with her feels and this book rolled over me as it took off, I freaking loved this book. I'm not going to lie this has been done before, older guy, younger female but I don't think I've read the sons girlfriend before so I was a wee bit worried that some sleaze would make it's way under my skin but how far wrong was I..This book was perfection!!
From New York Times Bestselling author Penelope Douglascomes a new forbidden love story…

JORDAN

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.

He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. 

He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work. 

I have to stop this. It can’t happen. 

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable. 

Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. 

I am. 

PIKE

I took her in, because I thought I was helping.

She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement. 

As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to. 

The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me. 

But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight. 

And her boyfriend’s father. 

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.
