A beach vacay with my best bud since college seems like the perfect opportunity to relax, catch some rays, and enjoy a couple of nights on the town. When I find a girl who's eager to mess around with me, I figure I've got it made.

Then I meet the intense, hot-as-hell, tattooed Eric Westright, who wrecks my the best possible way.

He awakens something within me-some

What happens in Puerto Vallarta, stays in Puerto Vallarta, right? Yeah, no. The book centers around the software developer, Jesse Morgan (23) and his best friend's dad, Eric Westright (42), a bigwig corporate entrepreneur. They instantly connect when they meet on vacation in P.V. and though they try to keep away from each other, they just can't. However, their ‘relationship’ isn't easy as one of them is hunted by a horrible past. Overall, this book was not

Just finished this book and loved every word. The growth of the relationship between Jesse and Eric was realistically progressive and not an overnight fall into love. The angst over how their actions would affect Ty, Eric's son and Jesse's best friend, were very real. At what point do you love and live for yourselves without consideration for others' feelings? The clues that there was trauma in Eric's past were very pointed and the trigger warning always appreciated. From beginning to end I thor ...more

fuuuuuuuuck you.

Have I written here about how I don't deal well with series? No?

Facts about me:

1) I'm suuuuper impatient.

2) I don't do delayed gratification.

3) I have trust issues - looking at you fantasy authors who create beautiful, magnificent worlds and stories and get us all hooked and...

I didn’t mind this book, but I didn’t love it. It didn’t grab me as I’d expected - but hey, maybe I wasn’t in the zone ? It lacked an element of depth and while the characters shared some of their issues, I couldn’t feel the emotion. Never mind - I shall move on

I wanted to can but I can’t 🤷🏽♀

The writing is not holding me and I have a slew of kindle notes about grammar errors (3s a crowd).

Full review to come soon.

Righty, here we go. This book is pure Devon McCormack, so if you don't like steaming hot men getting into it all over the place, while offering up a light angsty narrative with a bit of an open ending, this book isn't for you.

If, however, you like age gaps, MCs who do their best to avoid falling for each other because they don't want to hurt someone else, who have an emotional connection which jumps off the page and who burn up the sheets like the world is about to end,
I could only make it to 20%.

I found this story was dragging until around 85% mark, there's nothing except sex, a lot of sex.
I didn't mind the sex, but I didn't found this sexy. I don't know, I just couldn't get into it.
And Eric's son, Ty was annoying little shit. I didn't liked him. I liked Jesse though. He's mature for his age, even wiser that Eric. Well, ended as a cliffhanger, I'll probably would still read the second book to fulfill my curiosity.

2.5 stars.

Going in, I had super high expectations because the blurb sounded great. I thought there would be some angst and emotions running around. BFF: Best Friend's Father had the potential to be so much more in my opinion. But it was disappointing to say the least. Maybe I'm in the minority here but I just wasn't feeling it. There was too much repetitiveness for my taste, I wasn't the biggest fan of the way the book was written and I needed more of a connection between the characters. And

I saw a lot of hype before going into this book and I think that set me up with much higher expectations. I also knew the story would continue in the second book so that didn't affect my reading.

The first half of the story was a bit of a tough go for me. It felt repetitive as both Eric and Jesse dance around whether they should or shouldn't and what a bad idea it will be because of Ty's feelings. I actually put the book down for a couple of days to read something else and then came back to it l

Devon McCormack is on my TBR shelf but this is the first of his books that I have read.

BFF: Best Friend's Father is a GFY book with age gap, a dominant older man and a sexy younger man who also happens to be said older man's son BF. We have Eric who has been estranged from his son since he was sixteen but now has a tentative relationship with his son Ty. Ty has a BF by the name of Jesse who is bisexual but didn't let his best friend know this.

This was my first book of Devon McCormack and maybe it was the last one.

I don't give five stars easily, five is reserved for those extra amazing books, and for me this is one of those books. I needed a few chapters to get in the mood of the book, the alternating POV can be confusing at the beginning when you don't know the character voices yet, but then ,when you get the rhythm, it's one of those books you can't stop reading, both characters are captivating, their story is believable, I liked t

The blurb sounded good.- The book not so much.

The writing is subpar.

The characters are undistinguishable. When they had dialogue I had trouble figuring out who was talking.
The 40! year old man has the emotional and intellectual maturity of a horny teenager.
I gave up. I scipped a lot in hopes it would get better.. it doesn't.
I don't understand the high ratings for this book.

The story has been done before and way better.
I could recommend: 'Elements of Retrofit' by N.R. Walker

3.5 stars, just not quite enough to bump up to 4 stars here.

So, I think that this is the first book I have read from Devon McCormack, and overall I did enjoy it! I'm glad I went ahead and read it, because I was on the fence at first. People were saying that it ended on a cliffhanger, and while I agree in the fact that Eric and Jesse's story is NOT finished and there is a LOT left to happen to really give them their HEA, it's not like it ends with death, disappearance, break up, or anything majo
Revising the previous rating to 4 star. Found out that the HFN was because there is a second book that just came out..

I am relatively new to Devon McCormack's books, having read a book he co-authored, however since this was recommended in my Kindle Unlimited I went ahead a read it. Although a little hesitant about the premise of the book due to the "age gap" and taboo ( porn alert)of a relationship with the"friend's father", I was pleasantly surprised. The main protagonist, Jesse meets his

I'm just a bit irritated with this book right now. Taking off a star for false expectations. I really should have read reviews first but I was in a hurry.

I wanted a light fluffy read. With a title like that I'm not expecting anything much. And for much of the book I got precisely what I expected. I liked all three main characters. The older Eric,his son Ty, and Ty's best friend Jesse. It isn't the best writing ever but its competent and that is fine for something I quickly grabbed off Amazon la

This book was ok. I thought it was going to be the really hot story about a guy falling for his best friend’s father. (This is the stuff of porn.) Instead it was this so so story with lots of angst and nearly every scene ending with Eric freaking out. I know there is a second book, but I doubt I’ll read it.

I'm not surprised, by any means, that I enjoyed this book. I've read almost everything Devon has written, and though sometimes he surprises me by the content, *cough* Bastards *cough*, everything he writes is so good. He is truly a gifted writer. However, I must say, that if you are reading this Devon, I really want to kick your ass right now. Lol.

Nice premise but it failed to make the story feel close. Too many summarized events and inner talk of fears and not enough showing of them being together or dealing with issues.

I like the characters.

This review is just notes from while I was reading the book. I may return later to arrange into a proper review.

Not a big fan so far. The chapters alternate, but the characters are so alike. They read and sound exactly the same. Halfway through a chapter I can't discern who's POV I'm reading, and some of the dialogue I can't tell who's speaking.

Also, big cliche on the characters being perfect specimen: big (anatomy-wise), buff, and muscley.

This is just getting fucking tedious. It's so much of
If this wasn't on KU I probably would have DNF this after a few pages. Personally I am not a fan of MC who have uncontrollable erections right from the beginning. Twitching dicks are even worse. But I persevered. And even though it was slightly cheezy, I found myself invested in what was happening enough to continue.

I love age differences. Including a best friends dad is just sweetening the pot. And while this story has some issues, mainly that both POV are incredibly similar and having some co
