    FULL REVIEW in a few days when the book goes live There are some things I d like to get off my chest.Trigger warning What could turn some people off is that the h is 16 at the beginning of the story and he is 34 Not sure how much I should divulge but view spoiler it was pretty obvious to me that the H also liked her like yeah, back then when she was only 16 but they don t interact at all until her 18th birthday hide spoiler This is not as bad as you might think You can read the first FULL REVIEW in a few days when the book goes live There are some things I d like to get off my chest.Trigger warning What could turn some people off is that the h is 16 at the beginning of the story and he is 34 Not sure how much I should divulge but view spoiler it was pretty obvious to me that the H also liked her like yeah, back then when she was only 16 but they don t interact at all until her 18th birthday hide spoiler This is not as bad as you might think You can read the first two chapters here The first chapter is from Violet s 16th birthday, the second from her 18ths birthday.I learned something very important about my likes and dislikes while reading this book.I ve never noticed before but the Heroes in Saffron A Kent s books never actively pursue the relationship with the heroine at least the ones that I ve read and not until the end And I realized today that this is a fact I don t like when reading romance I need something from the H or else this won t work for me There HAS to be some kind of balance All the big steps were made by the h in this book, the H was merely reacting to it And no this is not a gender thing, I don t like it when the H is the only one pursuing as well.It s okay in the beginning, in fact, I loved that the h was so determined Violet was determined to make up for what she thought she did wrong and sought him out to face his wrath and make sure he s okay It was actually kind of heartbreaking, for both Violet and Mr Edwards My heart was aching for them and I even cried once because both were just so pitiful and I was FEELING it, you know My reviews are starting to sound the same but while I enjoyed the first part very much, the second not so much I felt disconnected, evenso than with my previous reads and thought about DNF ing this book I decided to power through though and started skimming over the lines especially the sex scenes , oftentimes even without registering what I just read ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review.

    3.5 Stars A Little Tough to TakeAs one of my absolute favorite genres, age gap, I couldn t wait to sink my teeth into Violet and Graham s story Violet is a girl that isn t the norm in her own eyes She s nothing like her beautiful sister and constantly dwells on that fact It doesn t help that she had a rough start in life, something that she s reminded of every day Violet likes to journal, eat lollipops and watch her new neighbor Mr Edwards Mr Edwards moved to Connecticut for his son Ac 3.5 Stars A Little Tough to TakeAs one of my absolute favorite genres, age gap, I couldn t wait to sink my teeth into Violet and Graham s story Violet is a girl that isn t the norm in her own eyes She s nothing like her beautiful sister and constantly dwells on that fact It doesn t help that she had a rough start in life, something that she s reminded of every day Violet likes to journal, eat lollipops and watch her new neighbor Mr Edwards Mr Edwards moved to Connecticut for his son Actually, everything he has done has been for his son, to make up for the father he didn t have Graham Edwards is gruff, not looking for friends and definitely not looking for the girl next door That s nothing but trouble.One night, one kiss and the world Violet and Graham knows changes in an instant, right along with our strong, quirky girl This I was disappointed in How quickly Violet lost her true self to Mr Edwards While he stayed in his bull headed ways, she shrunk like a violet, acting nothing like we saw in part one I was a fan of the beginning, the middle was meh, as well as the end While I love the age gap genre, I like the younger person to be strong and not make it seem like they are taken advantage of in a fragile state, which is how it felt most of the time with these two The sex scenes weren t necessarily sexy, but funny with the gross descriptions of her lady parts I did start to skim those after a while.The book is well written and I m sure age gap is hard to pull off without sending that creep meter to red Along with Violet and Graham, there are enough supporting characters to help the story out and keep it interesting Dreams of 18 reads as a standalone.Reviewed for Renee Entress s Blog

    I really enjoyed the first half of the book and how Graham and Voilets story came to be but I felt like Grahams attitude towards Violet got old really fast I know that is part of his persona but the he basically threw violets love back in her face even when he clearly wanted her.Violet was such an immature character that some of the sex scenes made me cringe and dont think they were meant to be funny but I laughed out loud at some of the terms used pussy sloshing was up there with comedy g I really enjoyed the first half of the book and how Graham and Voilets story came to be but I felt like Grahams attitude towards Violet got old really fast I know that is part of his persona but the he basically threw violets love back in her face even when he clearly wanted her.Violet was such an immature character that some of the sex scenes made me cringe and dont think they were meant to be funny but I laughed out loud at some of the terms used pussy sloshing was up there with comedy gold plus some other erm, classic quotes It makes me messier and sloppier, both my kiss that I can t stop giving him and my pussy My pussy is running like a river I thought you wouldn t fit because I can t even fit a tampon in me without hurting I m sure it will be a hit but this just wasnt for me

    Lately I have had zero interest in reading and even less interest in writing reviews, so this will be short and to the point I always enjoy this author s writing, and again, I enjoyed this book I didn t realize it was connected to MEDICINE MAN until I started reading it So that was cool I really liked a lot of the side characters in that book The plot of this one was good, even if I think the reaction to the original kiss was a little too over the top Both Violet and Graham were both lika Lately I have had zero interest in reading and even less interest in writing reviews, so this will be short and to the point I always enjoy this author s writing, and again, I enjoyed this book I didn t realize it was connected to MEDICINE MAN until I started reading it So that was cool I really liked a lot of the side characters in that book The plot of this one was good, even if I think the reaction to the original kiss was a little too over the top Both Violet and Graham were both likable characters The sex scenes in this one were a little on the cheesy side and didn t quite seem to fit in with the tone of the overall book Last, it was all wrapped up in a sweet happy for now So ya, overall it was an enjoyable readBLOG FACEBOOK TWITTER PINTEREST BOOKBUB

    Saffron Kent just showed up with a taboo age gap romance with a subtle Beauty and the Beast vibe and I thoroughly enjoyed every sinful bit of it This story of two loners whose forbidden kiss sets into motion a course of events that shatters hearts and curses them to ruination was both intoxicating and rife with brutal pleasure pain Readers will LOVE this.Dreams of 18 reads like an enchanted fairy tale of sorts, what with its majestic rose gardens and a reclusive, brooding hero who hides himsel Saffron Kent just showed up with a taboo age gap romance with a subtle Beauty and the Beast vibe and I thoroughly enjoyed every sinful bit of it This story of two loners whose forbidden kiss sets into motion a course of events that shatters hearts and curses them to ruination was both intoxicating and rife with brutal pleasure pain Readers will LOVE this.Dreams of 18 reads like an enchanted fairy tale of sorts, what with its majestic rose gardens and a reclusive, brooding hero who hides himself away from both the shame of his sinful behavior and the raw emotions he refuses to face Our brave heroine though, a heartbroken, neglected beauty determined to bring him out of hiding, might unknowingly save him from himself if only she can chip away at the stone cold wall he s built around himself Of course, this modern day fairy tale is also jam packed with deliciously dirty sex scenes and filthy talk that had me both blushing and cringing at times It s seriously filthy The steamy scenes are off the charts scorching but edged in a forbidden flavor or wrongness that just makes it feel so illicit It feels so wrong, this dynamic, yet so unbelievably right all at once This book is everything I absolutely love in a romance A sexy, brooding anti hero who delivers all the angst with his cruel words and his cold demeanor A teenager full of angst and insecurity who has no idea how powerful she truly is A love story full of push and pull and complicated emotion The most unforgettably romantic declarations and the most heart wrenching implosion of what could ve been This story is nonstop angst, unrelenting attraction and achingly romantic drama It s all the things and, even with some pacing flaws and some jarring transitions here and there, it was still a thoroughly enjoyable, angst ridden taboo romance that I ended up loving

    3.5 StarsOne of my favourite genres is taboo age gap stories so when I saw the synopsis for Graham and Violets story I was excited Violet was a different kind of heroine, she s a quirky loner who because of her interested family spends alot of time in her own head Her strange habits and even her stalkerish tendencies towards Mr Edwards endeared her to me The reader doesn t learn much about Graham Mr Edwards until the second part of the book and I wantedfrom him.The sex scenes didn t see 3.5 StarsOne of my favourite genres is taboo age gap stories so when I saw the synopsis for Graham and Violets story I was excited Violet was a different kind of heroine, she s a quirky loner who because of her interested family spends alot of time in her own head Her strange habits and even her stalkerish tendencies towards Mr Edwards endeared her to me The reader doesn t learn much about Graham Mr Edwards until the second part of the book and I wantedfrom him.The sex scenes didn t seem to fit with the Violet we had previously met I know she is young but some of the language used like pussy sloshing and It makes me messier and sloppier, both my kiss that I can t stop giving him and my pussy My pussy is running like a river I just found icky weird and immature On balance I liked the book but not as much as I expected to
