She’s the definition of trouble
For as long as I’ve known him, Brandon has always been the workaholic single dad to my best friend. But one night, one evening alone with him, makes me ache for something I never knew I wanted. Makes me aware that he’s so much more than what I thought. He isn’t just a dad—he’s a DILF. One I desperately want warming my sheets.

He can’t stop fan

4 "HOT Daddy" Stars

The DILF by London Hale was a hot and steamy read and I loved it!
I loved watching Brandon fight the "inappropriate" feelings he had towards Genesis/ Gen.
It's such a no no to lust after your daughter's best friend but when your day and night is taken over with thoughts about this smart, sassy and hot as sin girl then what's a man to do. lol
Genesis wasn't shy about making her feelings known, Brandon wasn't the only one who was finding it harder and harder to ignore this strong a

This series just gets wilder and wilder!


The DILF is the second installment in the Temperance Falls series and I think this may be my favorite book so far of the two. Brandon and Genesis's chemistry is just OFF THE CHARTS! The sexual tension was killing me. I freakin' loved Gen and her "no bullshit" attitude. The girl knows what she wants and goes after it and I admire her for that. Brandon is a lowkey softie even though he was trying to act all alpha-male like. Seriously, if you love forbidden

After I finished London Hale's Debut, Daddy's Best Friend, I couldn't wait to get my hands on The DILF. I mean, if you're going to go down the path of forbidden romance, you might as well follow up a novella about lusting after your dad's best friend with one about your best friend lusting after your dad, right?

Just like Daddy's Best Friend, The DILF was super sexy. It was also straight-up addictive. I couldn't get enough of Brandon and Genesi

My first time reading this author. The writing was .pretty good. Flowed well. I love taboo subjects. I didn't feel the connection between Hero and Heroine. It felt more like lust than love.

If you're a fan of Alexa Riley books, you'll like this one.

Sometimes you just need reads like this! Fun, sexy, hot (HAWT) and quick. This was steamy and full of chemistry. I am looking forward to reading more from these authors!

For the first time in 20 years, Brandon finds himself completely captivated with a woman. So what's holding him back from making Genesis his? Oh, just the fact that she's his daughter's best friend. And only 18.
I love the older man/younger woman romance, and I liked this story; it was just a little formulaic and a lot predictable.
The thing with Brandon's boss: the man was such a jerk and took such advantage of Brandon - or rather, Brandon allowed it to happen - that I would have loved a big sc

Well, well, well... the dirt just gets dirtier. LOL

Genesis, covering up for Evie during her graduation party, ended up bringing her closer to Brandon, Evie’s dad. And hottie DILF, as it turns out. Now that Gen is dealing with her mom’s healthy situation after having been in a car crash, Brandon finds himself by her side and unable to leave her.

Welcome to Temperance Falls, where experience counts.

The DILF is number two in the series, following Daddy's Best Friend. Like the first book, this features a taboo romance. Genesis (Gen) is the 18-year-old best friend of Evie, from book one. In that book, Evie wound up with Nathan, her father's best friend. This time around, it's Gen who falls in love with none other than Evie's father, Brandon.

Unlike Evie, though, Gen is more sexually experienced and confident, so I felt that she brought an ex

What can I say but DAMN, DAMN, DAMN GINA! I meant Genesis...you that's my line. When it's good. I thought Matt and Eve's story was hot . Oh no, Hunty, they have nothing on Gen and Brandon. Now see, Gen is Eve's best friend while Mate and Bran are best friends. Ok, now, the men are both older hot as sin men in their 40'tys and and the gorgeous falubous ladies well let's just say they just became into their womanh

The DILF is book two in London Hale's debut series, Temperence Falls. and follows the trend of the taboo, the Forbidden.

What I love, so far, about the books in this series is they are quick but dirty reads - but there is a total story there. They aren't just steamy romps to give you a thrill.

The DILF brings us the story of Evie's dad, Brandon, the work obsessed businessman who finds himself with a new attraction to his daughter's best friend, Genesis. Though Brandon is determined to stear clea

After reading Daddy's Best Friend I could not wait to get my hands on The DILF. In this book we follow Brandon and Genesis . Brandon is the father of Genesis's best friend , I know a lot of people will look at that and think how is that going to work , but In some very sexy ways London Hale keeps reminding us that age is really just a number . There are some scenes in this book that make just want to sit right in front of my fan and put my kindle inside of a freeze just because of how steamy it ...more

Best Friend's Daddy

Another excellent book by London Hale. This is book #2 of the Temperance Falls series. Each book is a standalone with recurring characters. Sexy shorties about older men and younger women. Well written and entertaining with heat galore.

Genesis had always joked about how her best friend's dad, Brandon was a DILF but one night it was no longer a joke. The attraction between them was very real and undeniable. It didn't help that Gen was staying with Brandon while her mom was in

This book was good, mostly due to the sexy times, with nearly nonexistent plot (though that's unsurprising for a book that's only 100-ish pages). However, my beef is with the practical side (or lack of one) of the story.

Brandon's (who's like 35-40ish?) and Gen's (18) relationship kinda creeps me out because....well....I feel like it should go without saying, but if they get married (which seems likely based on the ending), Gen will be Eve's STEPMOTHER. Eve and Gen are 1) BEST FRIENDS and 2) the

”Knowing this was it. She was it. I’d give up everything for her, for more moments like this one. There would be no walking away this time. This was everything.”

This series has been a pleasant surprise. It’s the second one of the three I’ve read but I’ve been going through them backwards. There is a TINY bit of connection between them so I probably should have read them in order but they are definitely okay as stand-alones.

Short, well paced, steamy, and hot heros, that’s what you get in this ser

I liked this book but I didn’t like it as much as the previous book. The chemistry between Genesis and Brandon was clear to see and the passion was through the roof. I wanted to see more of Gen and Brandon together, the majority of the time Brandon was at work. I understood Brandon had a job but he kept letting Gen down. When Brandon wasn’t at work and was with Gen, I liked witnessing their attraction. I liked that Evie didn’t kick off when she found out about her best friend and her da

Oh, Daddy!

This was a great quick and dirty read w/that HEA I require. Brandon and Genesis had me grabbing for something cool to drink...and hard to rub. I loved both Brandon and Gen's struggles with what they were doing. Brandon had been a workaholic, and missed so much of his daughter's life growing up. His forbidden feelings for his daughter's best friend forced him to confront some issues he'd been dealing with his entire life. Genesis is no wallflower, and as much as she's attracted to Brand

blah, I found this one pretty boring, tbh. like forget how much I don't like this romance trope, I was not invested in the two characters' relationship at all. I didn't believe in their love, and because of the novella-length, it felt hastily rushed. and how they end up *finally* in a situation that makes temptation impossible to ignore, really? you could've fooled me that Gen's mom was actually seriously hurt. so sadly, The DILF was a nope for me. but I'm very excited to read this next one!

This sexy story continues where the first book left off. Brandon was heading to the hospital to be with Genesis after her mom was in a car accident. Well when all he can think about is how to make things better for Genesis he can't stop thinking about getting her in his bed. Only a few thing stand in his way of doing that first thing is she's 18 not that big of a deal second thing is she is his daughters best friend. And Brandon wasn't sure if he could get over that, and add on top of that he is ...more

Another sexy addition to the temperance Falls series. When Brandon realizes that he has feelings for his daughters best friend, who happens to be only nineteen years old he runs from them. The little town of Temperance Falls would never understand their relationship if he gave in for his desires, especially his boss and the company he has given years for. When Brandon realizes Genesis feels something for him he has to decide if he will give in to his happiness or let other people decide what his ...more

Go DILF!!!

I actually was really excited to see how this story went when I was reading about Eve and Nathan. Genesis seemed to have had a thing for Brandon, Eves dad. But it wasn’t like Eve, where Gen was crushing on Brandon for years. She always thought he was attractive but never looked at him like that. Vita after one night she is checking for him.

And I love how confident Genesis is in herself. It not a confidence that even adult women have. But she has it and it’s what draws Brandon to her.

Dear Brandon,

It’s not me, it’s you. I’m a simple girl — I listen way too much to The Unlikely Candidates, I have some unhealthy passion for popcorn, and I’m a sucker for the age-gap trope. And if I’m being totally honest with you, I even liked you at first. You seemed to be a good guy and you’re hot. (I’m not going to deny it, it’s a fact.)

I won't talk about how you seemed to fall for Gen out of nowhere. I doesn't really matter, does it? And I want you to know that I get why you were so mad whe

A crap dad but an okay boyfriend

I’m all about an age gap and book one in this series was a great quick read but this book was ridiculous! How can you work so much you miss out on your daughter’s whole life? Then when you fall for her best friend you give up everything including your career to make your girlfriend happy!!! I’m sorry but he should have been a better dad and gave up his job way before because he loved his daughter enough to make her a priority. Oh and eve is totally fine with it. J

Another steamy taboo read with a great story! DILF is the second in the series and features Brandon and Genesis; who we met in book one.

What’s a dad to do when his daughter’s best friend catches his eye? Especially after he frowned upon his own daughter seeking out her own may/December romance?

Their chemistry is amazing. Brandon’s struggle is filled with tension and I loved Genesis and the way she just went after what she wanted! Totally digging this daddy trope. #KeepThemComing
