Blackstone by J.D. Hollyfield – Contemporary Romance

I am meticulous. Structured. A single father.
I obsess over things and crave control.
And when a hot, feisty little woman throws a wrench in my carefully laid out plans, I lose my mind.
My every thought revolves around making her bend to my will—until they become less about her doing things my way and more about just her.

She’s like an angel bringing me peace. It’s been too long since I’ve enjoyed the quietness of my life. When she’s not around, my head explodes and the numbers become louder. More cluttered. Almost too much to handle. It’s fucking maddening.
Dr. Winters thinks I should go in for an evaluation. But I don’t need therapy. I need her. I need to be with her. In her.

Reasons I loved this book:
1. It made me laugh almost continuously.
2. Trevor is the cutest obsessive asshole- psycho.
3. Trevor's obsession

O enredo parecia ser promissor, porém a forma como foi executado não me agradou em nada.

Não gostei dos personagens, me pareceu muito superficiais. Principalmente o Trevor, tipo de “mocinho” que não ganha a minha simpatia. O comportamento e pensamentos não condizentes com a sua idade real foi o que me incomodou desde o primeiro capítulo.

A história em si correu de forma bem rápida, com um grande destaque nas cenas de sexo, mas talvez esse era o propósito e eu que não estava na vibe...

This book was hot and funny. A great combination to a late night read.

I really liked how funny the characters are and how this wasn’t insta-love (not that I have a problem with it).

And the sex scenes? Hot.

And Trever reaction when Lucy called him “sir” was one of the best part of the book.
“Muscle. I see fucking muscle. I might be nearing forty-five, but I feel great. I look great. Not a single gray to be seen. I’m tan, smooth skin. My goddamn ex waxes my eyebrows for Christ’s sake, and my dick w

I actually said when I finished Kingston that I wasn't going to read any more of this series since I found these guys to be HUGE a$$holes. Unredeemable a$$holes. But then I noticed that I had already 1-clicked Blackstone when it first came out, so I decided to go ahead and give it a read. I liked it more than Kingston. Trevor was still a bit of an a$$, but he stayed just this side of redeemable. In fact, the only time I thought he crossed the line was after that complete douchewaffle Pearson pla

bad bad, no good very bad book.

seriously... y'all got me all hyped with the gimmick of interconnected stories from 4 romance authors and THIS is the shit you decided to lead with. rude as hell.

i probably should have known from the text on the cover or even from the opening 2 pages that this thing was going to be a disaster. but i held out hope that it might be a sexy disaster. kind of like taco bell.


but no. this was about as sexy as rheumatoid arthritis.

please do yourself a favor and just read

From the moment I saw this series it got my attention. These are 4 books written by 4 different authors in 4 different genres. This is Trevor Blackstone's story. He is wealthy, sexy and one of the founders of the Four Fathers empire.

I love characters like Trevor who are so unique. He is a math prodigy and his mind works in numbers. He is constantly figuring out equations and calculating probabilities. Even though he is highly intelligent, he appears strange to others as he mumbles numb

Trevor and Lucy have a quick, sexy story that will also tug at your heart strings a few times.
Trevor is a millionaire. Numbers are his thing. They are also what keeps him from feeling normal.
Lucy is spending the summer trying to find herself at the grandmas old house.
When Trevor and Lucy cross paths for the first time it is it pretty at all.
As time progresses, their relationship progresses as well.

Fast Pace, Furious Sex and Four Fathers. A winning combination that makes up Trevor Blackstone. He's a genius, a math prodigy, a NUMBERS man.
My memory was sharp. Algorithms, calculating speed, fractions built into fractions. it all came naturally to me. they said I was rare. I thought I was a freak I didn't want this Talent. It means my mind never stops I'm always counting steps, seconds between breaths, the distance between waves

Blackstone (Four Fathers #1) by J.D. Hollyfield is not exactly the first book by this author that I read, as I read AND LOVED “Text 2 Lovers” (2 Lovers #1) that was co-authored by both K. Webster and J.D. Hollyfield.

So color me surprised by my reaction to Blackstone. Seeing the raving reviews from other reviewers – I assume I am the odd one out here. I apologize upfront for my totally different view but a review & rating needs to be honest.

I loved the storyline – there is no way around that

This story has it all. Hot older rich man falls for a young woman half his age. Add some deep mental health issues we have a winner. He is described so well I vision him to be Josh Duhamel. And the young beauty Julianne Hough. Mr. Blackstone is a numbers man. Numbers and calculation is constantly running in his head. He finds himself calm and quiet when he is with her. She is his solace. But his demanding partner nearly ends his new found love. I enjoyed this story immensely. The sex scenes are ...more

pretty dull. h was a total loser and nothing in the story makes her unique for H. Even her supposed soothing impact on H's mental anxiety aren't emotionally laid out. the age difference is hardly addressed. They had chemistry but it wasn't off the charts.

I loved this book. I mean, i was really into it. The previous books i had read by J.D. Hollyfield was her collaborations with K Webster, and those were romantic comedies and nothing like Blackstone. So this was a delicious surprise that only made me want more. Why was it just a few hundred pages?!?!? I. WANT. MORE!!

It was all sorts of wrongs in all the right places because when it comes to genius prodigy Trevor and slightly off course and unsure of what she wants Lucy, they were perfect fo

Hands down, I absolutely enjoyed Blackstone.
It was simply a fun, quick read that just so happened to be down and dirty smexy and had a good dose of heart thrown into the mix with a dash of drama to keep me on my toes.

I adored Trevor and Lucy. Trevor is...interesting. He’s determined, almost to the point of having tunnel vision in certain aspects of his life, Alpha AF smexy and yet he has this...not softer side per se, but lighter side that, when it comes out to play, is

Trevor Blackstone is great with numbers. He can’t seem to get them out of his head until he sees his new neighbor Lucy. She is just supposed to sell her grandmother’s house to him and be gone. Once he meets her though, Trevor’s dominant personality takes over and he knows that he’s going to have her. He just needs to her out of his system and get this deal done. But onc

HOLY FREAKING MOLY! I still can't believe that this was my first J.D. Hollyfield story ever, but now that I've gotten my hands on something from her I am HOOKED!

Blackstone was a quick and sexy read that I devoured in a little over an hour. Once I began this one there was no way I was putting it down until the very end. This book was the definition of perfection and oh my goodness was it a hot and steamy tale. Trevor and Lucy's story and unexpected

Trevor Blackstone has been working on a dream real estate development for the rich by the ocean. There’s only one eye-sore house left to tear down, but he doesn’t feel like waiting until the end of summer like the contract states. Instead, he’s determined to convince the woman living there, Lucy, to sign ASAP and let him be done with it. But Lucy refuses to give in, and soon enough, Trevor has more important things on his mind than tearing down a crummy house.

This was a safe read; no OW/OM after

What an excellent way to start this series! I enjoyed everything about this story. Once again, we have a quick and sexy age gap romance that isn't really fluff. There's a story here. Could it be explored more? Sure. Did it need to be? No. It had the right amount of timeline to make this treat believable and enjoyable. Well done!

Yes! Yes! Yes honey! This tasty treat has given me LIFE! Blackstone is perfect!

Trevor Blackstone is a genius. Literally. I love him to pieces! Lucy is muddling through life attempting to “find” herself. Their initial meeting is hilarious, chaotic, and EPIC! Of course with that kind of bang, things can only go up, right?

I love love love this story! There are a couple odd relationships such as Lucy’s friendship with Darlene and Kiki. The story is fiction so I can brush it off. No worries. I know

Each book will be released in April, all a week apart, and Blackstone introduces us to all 4 of the men, 2 of them only briefly, while the other 2, Eric and Trevor, get more page time, Trevor as the hero and Eric as his be
