Say You Want it

3.78  ·  Rating details ·  511 Ratings  ·  121 Reviews

It was supposed to be a summer job, something to help me transition from graduating high school to starting college. But to me, this wasn’t just some office cleaning position.
I’d be working for Zane, the one man I’d loved for longer than I even wanted to admit.
The one person who could make me weak in the knees with just a glance.
My father’s friend who was far too old

"Say You Want it" was a really sweet age-gap romance: this, in my opinion, wasn't really that taboo at all.
More emotional and heartfelt than actually forbidden.
This wasn't a long read and that is my main reason for not marking this higher in my rating: I felt that a lot of the tension and story-build up was ultimately lost here mainly because of the length of this.
I still very much enjoyed myself but a higher page count I think would have only been of be

Say You Want It by Jenika Snow is a short, sweet, sexy read.

I love an older man, younger woman story. This checked all my boxes.

4 big stars!

This is not a book. Not a short story.
This is a book summary. No, a short book summary.

Fkclpdpcğf lol.

AND very well known. A stillborn one. Like, what, ten page?

(I ADORE this book's cover. I've seen before idk which one.)

Anyway. Way too short to judge. My stars for written too short and ordinary, and a little kinky hot.

I was really disappointed in this book. I had high hopes that this would be good based on the blurb, but it really let me down. In the first chapter along we go from Piper talking to her dad and in the next paragraph she was in Zayne's office. Ummm what just happened? There was really no buildup it was super short, like I read it in less than an hour short. Piper was just not a likable character to me. I couldn't believe their insta-love. One minute he's fighting his attraction and in the next p ...more

I love a good older man/younger woman story especially when the man is best friends with daddy. Piper has had a huge crush on her dad’s best friend for a while and she was about to start working for him. Zane Alfonso has a multi-million dollar architecture firm and he’s just hired his best friend’s daughter so he can keep an eye on her. He knows Piper is off limits because he would never do anything to jeopardize his friendship with her dad.

Piper is starting a new chapter of her life having graduated high school and preparing to start school, but first, she has a summer job. But to her, it's so much more than that because she'll be working for her crush, Zane, also known as her dad's best friend.

Zane knows nothing can ever happen between him and Piper, not only because she's the daughter of his closest friend, but he's also so much older than her. But, needing to spend time with her, he agrees to hire her for the summe

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, and dirty talking naughty fun.

This is Piper and Zane’s story. Piper wanted Zane, but he was her father’s friend and older then her. Now she has an opportunity to spend some time with him over the summer before she goes off to college. It’s just a cleaning position but to her it’s so much more. Zane wants Piper but knows he is just too old for her. He will hire her and keep her close and out of trouble. What happens when the want c

Jenika Snow is the best of the best at the way she writes. She's fast, efficient, crazy hot and incredibly amazing. Say You want It is her newest standalone and you cannot miss it at all

Piper and Zane lit up my kindle y'all...from start to finish! Zane was so alpha in the best ways and I loved the push-n-pull between he and Piper, the soft to his hard in a few ways. And when these two gave in.... holy smokes you can't be prepared for the panty melting hotness!

Jenika is a pro at smut y'a

Say You Want It is a very easy to read, quick little story that could be taboo for some but is really just about age differences.

Piper is the daughter of Zane’s best friend, Liam, however after turning eighteen she turned his whole world upside down as well. For Piper she knew Zane being so much older would be frowned upon but was infatuated with him.

The story itself is a sweet love story however there really isn’t much to the storyline. I kept waiting for more but it didn’t happen so was a lit

The best part about this book was that I finished the entire thing in less than half an hour. Otherwise, it was a huge flop for me. Since Say You Want It was mercifully short I am going to keep my review the same.

When I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued, I always find May-December romances fascinating especially so when the man is a friend of the girl’s parents. However, the cover copy was about the most interesting part of the book. It lacked character development, plot, any real con

Say You Want it" was a really steamy yet sweet age-gap romance that had a few taboo moments. With Zane, we have the hot older man whose been in love with his best friend's college age daughter, Piper, for a while now. Zane knows that he will get her one way or another. He knows that she wants to get work experience before going off to college so he puts a plan together and offers a job working for him and Piper accepts.

As every book I have read by this author is one I have enjoyed. The characters are so well developed and live within the words she has described them. This is another of the same.

This is not a new subject line, but one that has been written time and time again by other authors and each one is written by each authors interpretation and how the story reads out of their thoughts.

The story is, Older man/young woman.
Zane , loves Piper, even though her father is his best friend. Piper is now of age

A delicious forbidden short story that had my insides squelching.

We get the hot older man having been in love with his best friend's daughter for a while now and he will get her one way or another. He knows that she wants to work and get experience before taking off to college so he suggested she come work for him.

When Piper goes to work for Zane, she has all these butterflies floating in her tummy because she's been in love with Zane for as long as she can remember.

Older is better

If you like your men older, sexy, and just a little bit Alpha then you need to read this! ❤

Piper has been in love with her dads best friend for what feels like forever. She’s working for him now before she goes off to college but she’s not sure how much longer she’ll be able to keep her feelings hidden when she’s so near him every day.

Zane too has been in love with his best friends little girl. It’s torture seeing her, not being able to touch her.

Jenika Snow is one of my go to's like Alexa Riley and Madison Faye - when I need something quick, smutty, and possibly slightly taboo. She delivers all 3 in Say You Want It, but I have to admit it's not among my faves from her. There was a little too much inner monologue from both characters and not a lot of actual interaction or explanation as to why Piper and Zane were so head over heels for each other. I did appreciate the non-drama of it all and the epilogue is super cute, but there was an i ...more

This book starring romance across a significant age gap has lovely bits but overall not meeting the expectations set by the blurb. Characteristics like the male protagonist's possessive nature are more enforced by repeating the word over and over again than development over the storyline. Mostly about breaking the ice and admitting feelings to their other halves than anything. The time lapse isn't quite subtle and suddenly it is The End.

They had wanted each other for so long but he is so much older than her and her father friend. He offers her a job for the summer. They would keep warning the other. He knows all she needs is to ask. Will she? What will happen if her father finds out? See if they will get toy

A very short read

I love Jenika Snow's books normally, whether they be short and sweet or sexy and sassy, Sadly this one falls a bit short,
This one is too short and sweet but not very sexy at all, It tell's the tale of Piper and Zane, a bit of a Taboo I suppose but not overly so, she is 18 he is 38 but he is her father's best friend that's the Taboo, nothing more titillating than that, I think for me the main problem is it's too damn short and if I am totally honest I would no

Good easy read, taboo older man and teenage girl!! It was hot, steamy and romantic.. Piper had a crush on her dads best friend since forever what she didn’t know was he also wanted her, and when she started working for him he would stop at nothing to make her his!! A fiesty young headstrong lady and a possessive older man what’s not to like in a book!

Piper has loved and desired Zane since she knew what those feelings were. Taking a summer job for his firm before college is torture but she just can't resist. Zane can't see himself with anyone but Piper even though she is his best friend's daughter. Asking her to work for him tests his self control until he throws in the towel. He knows she is it for him. Now all he can do is lay it all on the line. Will she feel the same?

This story is short, fast paced and a nice read. I devoured this book within half an hour and wasn’t once bored. The writing style for this story easy to follow, the characters are likeable and storyline is sweet.
I liked Piper but I felt like this story was more Zane’s than hers. I liked Zane. His love for Piper was clear to see. I liked that he didn’t push Piper away due to his connection to her father.
The chemistry between Piper and Zane was undeniable. I loved that they didn’t deny their fe

18 year old Piper is fresh out of high school looking for a job before she sets off for college, and her father's best friend, 38 year old Zane Alfonso steps in and offers her a job at his office. It's a simple cleaning job, but Zane has ulterior motives he wants to keep Piper close thinking he can look after her and keep an eye on her, but it proves harder than he anticipated given his feelings for the teen.

This is a fantastic 'taboo' insta love story between Zane, 38 years old and celibate and his best friend's virginal daughter [hence the taboo], Piper. He first really noticed her the year she became 18 but she has loved and crushed on him for as long as she can remember. When between high school and college she is looking for a job Zane where he can make sure she is safe and all other males are kept at a very safe distance from her.
