This is the second book in the Darling series which can also be read as a standalone.
I have a nice life – living in my hometown, owning the coffee shop I’ve worked at since I was 16.
But I’m tired of doing everything by myself. Tired of being in charge of every decision in my life.
I want someone to lean on. Someone to spend time with. Sit with. Hug.
And I really don’t want to go to my best friend’s wedding alone.
So, I signed up for a dating app, and agreed to meet with the first guy that messaged me.
And now here I am, at the bar.
Only it’s not my date that just sat down in the chair across from me. It’s his dad.
And holy hell, he’s the definition of Silver Fox. If a Silver Fox can be thick as a house, have piercing blue eyes and tattoos from his neck down to his fingertips.
He’s giving me Big Bad Wolf vibes. Only instead of running, I’m blushing. And he looks like he might just want to eat me whole.
I loved this book. It was a sweet story with great characters and plenty of spice.
Daddy Axel was just 🥵. He was perfect. I loved how thoughtful and protective he was. Maddie was a great character and I loved how down-to-earth she was. Maddie and Axel were made to each other.
I loved how they met. Axel had no shame, and rightfully so. I loved how they grew close and embedded themselves into each other’s lives. It was natural for them.
The story was good seeing Maddie learn to trust him and seeing Axel learn to open up. The spice between them was hot and Daddy Axel don’t half know how to talk in the bedroom.
Overall, this was a sweet, hot story. Maddie and Axel are brilliant characters. I would definitely recommend this book.
My rating: 5/5*
