Okay, so…..can I just say, YUM?! ‘Cause, daaang…Griffin is delicious!

How to Date a Younger Man is a slow burn, swoony, age gap romance with lots of fun, flirty, and emotional aspects sprinkled throughout.

Griffin and Layne have insta-chemistry. From the minute Griffin gets his hands on Layne (calm down, this is a slow burn romance, remember?…he was a massage therapist when they first met), their attraction to one another only grew over the course of the story. And by grew, I mean 4 years worth of growth. Yeah, 4 flipping years! Now, granted, they both needed those 4 years to not only mature (*ahem* Griffin), and realize that age is just a number (*cough* Layne), but they formed a tight and close friendship that I think made the story even better.

Griffin was a great character! I loved how laid back and caring he was. Yeah, his age may portray him as some young stud, wanting to seek out women’s greener pastures. But he never acted like it. So to feel like Layne constantly held that over his head felt totally wrong. She was also constantly hung up on their age difference. To certain types of people, I can see a 10 year age difference being a hard pill to swallow. And as for Layne, her age-insecurity continually prevented her from getting over that last hurdle. But once she finally let go and allowed herself to accept Griffin for the kind of guy he was and not what she thought he should be, did Layne finally find happiness and what she’d always been searching for.

I really, really liked this story! The title doesn’t quite match up to the storyline, as there’s not much “dating” involved between the characters….remember, slow burn. But the cover?….omg, YAASSS! If I wasn’t already a huge fan of the author, I’d be one-clicking this book so fast JUST BECAUSE of the cover. HAWT!

This standalone romance is a sexy and entertaining quick read. The progression of the storyline flows smoothly along with the development of the characters. It’s the perfect summertime read for those wanting an enjoyable romantic escape.

4 Stars!

Tips for Surviving a Fling with a Sexy Younger Man …

If you accidentally bang your best friend’s younger brother, here are a few important tips…

One: Do NOT brag to your friend about how well-endowed her brother is.

Two: Do not go back for seconds. Or thirds.

Three: Do not let him see your muffin-top or jiggly behind. And definitely don’t let him feed you cookies in bed. Cookies are bad. Remember that.

Four: Act like a damn grown up and apologize for riding him like a bull at the rodeo. And DO NOT flirt with him when he laughs at said apology.

Five: This one is crucial, so pay attention.

Do NOT under any circumstance fall in love with him.
