A new, sexy standalone from #1 New York Times Bestseller, Vi Keeland.

When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again.

Sigh... Swoon!

I like the title of the book and the cover both. As far as the blurb goes, it has things I dislike but I'm sure I'll still give the book a chance as I always try books with the trope of a younger guy with an older woman :)

New Vi Keeland favorite? I think so!

I just adored this book so much. I love the fact that's it's an age gap romance but one where the female character is older instead of the male. I feel like everyone who writes age gaps, the male is always the one who's older so this book was refreshing in that sense and I'm so glad this trope was written by one of my favs. It's been a while since I've read a Vi Keeland book, and this book made me realise that I've been seriously missing ou

Ford is my favorite Vi hero to date! You all are in for such a treat and with this sexy boy (man) next door story! Older women younger man stories are my jam and this one hits ALL the buttons! The beautiful beach setting only adds to the experience. Wish I could read it all over again.

Ever so slowly, Ford wrapped his hands around my cheeks and started to kiss me. I poured everything I was feeling from my mouth into his—sadness, longing, love, desire. I wanted to show him with my touch how I felt about him, because I knew I’d never get the chance to say the words now.

ALL GROWN UP was just what I needed in my life! Vi Keeland paints the forbidden romance trope perfectly as Valentina is not only twelve years older than Ford, but also his neighbor growing up. GIVE ME ALL OF IT!

I was basically consumed by this book.

The moment I picked it up, I was sucked in and my heart began doing those deliciously achy flutters and swoons while I fell wholeheartedly into this story that, on its face, didn't seem like something I would like.

I don't know what it is, but I approached this one with a fair amount of hesitation. I wasn't sure how that age gap thing was going to work for me and, I'm not going to lie, it felt a little uncomfortable sometimes. I kept imagining myself in Valen

Vi Keeland’s latest contemporary romance takes the age-gap trope and gives it a sexy and intriguing twist — the heroine is twelve years older than the hero — and All Grow Up is an emotional, fan-yourself-worthy and singular love story that will have you smiling the entire time reading it.

Valentina hasn’t jumped back into dating, although it’s been two years since her divorce, but her best friend pushes her to try online dating by setting up a profile for her. While she’s reluctant, she realizes

All Grown Up is EVERYTHING. And I mean EVERYTHING.

I loved so many things about it. From it being set in New York (the town I live in is mentioned), to the perfect writing, to the amazing, amazing characters, to the plot, to the cover which is an absolutely perfect Ford, it was all perfection. (Sorry for the run on sentence.)

Speaking of Ford, he was absolutely amazing. His personality had me swooning big time. He was sweet and sincere. Romantic and mature. Sexy and charming. He was a doll.

Loved it!!!!! Follows the typical style I've come to expect from this author (including the drool worthy cover). The wit, charm and sex appeal from the Hero with a nice side of smartass. Check. The heroine is your every day girl, insecure, funny and unaware that she's awesome. Check. Great side characters. Check, natch. And all wrapped up in a terrific HEA. I'm a happy reader. Just flew through this one. Y'all enjoy!

I stayed up until the wee hours of the night saying again and again, 'just one more chapter!' Before I knew it, it was after 3.30am and I had finished the book. Recently I have been known as a night owl just not this late, but I had to know the ending, I couldn't sleep until I knew the full story.

Valentina was someone I could relate to. We are in the same age bracket, well somewhere around the same, because age is just a number! She was divorced and finding her feet being on her own and thinking

"The truth is, you can never have the right feelings at the wrong time, because there is never a wrong time for the right person."

Vi Keeland has shown she exhibits a versatility in her writing and that she is not afraid to write about taboo topics. Though I have only read a few books by this author at this point, she never disappoints!

All Grown Up was every bit the sexy forbidden trope you need! Not only was Valentina 12 years Ford's senior but she also happens to be his neighbor

All Grown Up was such a wonderful story! I fell in love with Ford and Valentina so quickly and easily. It was impossible not to. Their story not only entertained me but it moved and inspired me as well.

Society has always been accepting of older men and younger women. There is a lot of unbrainwashing to be done after centuries under a patriarchal society. The stigma of older women and younger men is real and one that Val struggled with from the get go. Despite their strong attraction and easy co

Well, alrighty then. I’m swooning. Fanning my face and just wow.
I loved this story. Guys, it’s not the usual older woman, younger man story. That said, it has a fantastic plot and a sexy man and gorgeous woman. It’s has the oh, no. Nope. Not going there, but it’s deeper than all that.
It’s breathtaking and it’s sensual. It’s that one word... EVERYTHING.

Perfect light and sexy beach read! I loved the older woman/younger man theme.

“There’s no better way to get back at your douche of an ex-husband for sleeping with a twenty-year-old than having a summer fling with a younger man.”

Valentina is 37 years old and trying out a dating app for the first time. Much to her surprise the witty guy who she is texting with turns out to be the son of her neighbor who is now all grown up. But Ford Donovan is not your typical 25-year-old. He is wise beyond his y

All the swoon, all the smiles, all the love. Ford was PERFECTION! Ford was EVERYTHING! The author created the standard that all other book boyfriends now need to live up to.

With the market flooded with manwhore's and alphaholes (which I also love), the author brings you Ford Donovan. He is a breath of fresh air and the man you need to never let go. He's only twenty-five, but when life gets ripped away from you, you grow up real fast. He's been raising his

Wasn’t feeling it.

I mean if she met him fresh without the background history, I’d jump on board. But he babysat her son, and she knew his parents as her next door neighbours. She literally knew him as a baby teen - makes it feel a bit icky.

I get that he’s this high flying super attractive guy now who is 25 and has a business. They reacquaint accidentally. She’s divorced. But even then, felt very meh, and the chemistry had more of a lust based angle to it than a genuine connection.

Honestly I didn't want to read this book because of the age difference. I can't believe a woman near her forties can find any mutual romantic ground with a twenty five years man/guy. She probably can teach him some new methods and not the other way around.

I ate my hat.

I gave this story five stars.
Even my sceptical other half..
That hero was something else.
More mature than the heroine who was twelve years senior to him.
That's for sure.
He chased after the heroine like there's no tomorrow.

That’s where the sexy Ford Donovan comes into the picture. He’s supposed to invest his company in advertising with a dating site so he decides to do some research and check it out first.
