You know those sexy, slow burning lusty love stories? The anticipation builds with all those long lingering looks and you just can’t wait for them to get it on like donkey kong? Well this is not one of those stories. I am pleased to announce that there is no hesitation to get down and dirty when it comes to this couple, spontaneous uncontrollable desire is the dominant force in this sexy tale.

Now that I have your attention, let’s talk about everything else going on in this addictive read.

5 Star Review Silver Mayor (The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge #3) by L.B. Dunbar  
I have been looking forward to Charlie Harrington’s book and I loved it. In fact this may well be my favourite to date. I have only read a few books by L.B. Dunbar and I have fallen in love with her style of writing. The fact that she writes “Silver Fox” stories for the over 40’s is most definitely a win for me, since I am well over that age bracket.

I love single parent romances and this one made my week as both the

A sexy, lusty love tale of a by-the-book small town mayor and the gorgeous bombshell who turned his world upside down while stealing his heart.

Charlie Harrington is not only a great lawyer and good mayor who loves his job, he’s also a wonderful single father who’s always stayed on the straight and narrow path -- except for that pic that dubbed him Mayor McSteamy. He never thought he’d fall in love again, much less with a beauty that has trouble written all over.

Silver Mayor is Everything and More. Charlie Harrington is just a small town mayor trying to do right by his town, his friends and family and especially his young daughter Lucy what he never expects is to me Jan Cruz in the most unusual of places but once they meet his life is turned upside down.
Jan Cruz is a single mom trying to restart her life for not only for herself but for her daughter Vega. She will do whatever it takes to make them both happy and when she meets Charlie Harrington it mos

This was my first ARC from LB Dunbar. I've read and saw recommendations from friends on Facebook and got curious so I signed up for this.

It's a fast paced, older/more mature romance. It was relatable in the sense that I'm around the age bracket. It was a slow burn for me and had only picked up around the middle.

I did enjoy the story overall because I'm a romantic sap. It's a swoony, sexy and explosive single-parent romance.

Silver Mayor is #3 in the Silver Foxes Of Blue Ridge Series, and focuses on brother Charlie, the mayor of the small Georgia town. I've really liked the other books in this series as well as the series before it, but Silver Mayor was a bit of a clunker for me.

I just never felt that Charlie and Janessa connected in any real way. Their entire relationship seemed more like a friends with benefits situation. Which is totally fine -- they are both divorced, single parents, and I liked that they found

Silver Mayor is the next installment in LB Dunbar’s The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge Series. It follows the youngest Harrington brother Charlie’s journey. And his journey is far from easy, his past is filled with a scandal, an unfaithful ex-wife who honestly gives the actress Joan Crawford a fun for her money with her mothering skills, as well as trying to raise his 10-year-old daughter Lucy and do right by his small town.

Janessa is also a single mom to a 10-year-old daughter Vega, and her ex-husb

Silver Mayor - The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge

L.B. Dunbar brings us more wonderfully grounded and real stories in her Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge series and more from the Harrington Family.

Charlie Harrington is the town mayor and also a single dad to Lucy.
He’s a stand up kind of guy, always playing by the rules, the goody two shoes of the Harrington brothers but when an unknown female intrudes in his bedroom, the sparks begin to fly and Charlie’s good guy persona is seriously in jeopard

Single Parents galore... Love it

Charlie Harrington is the a single 45year old dad and he is the mayor to a small town. He is happy with the way his life is. Running his town and raising his daughter and definitely not looking for a relationship. Until he meets Janessa Cruz.
Janessa is also a single divorced mother and trying to raise her daughters and getting her life on track again. From the moment she meets Charlie Harrington they have an attraction that just wont seem to go away.
But of course
5+ stars

Silver Mayor is one of L.B. Dunbar's best work to date and is one of my favorite reads of 2020! She did a phenomenal job with Charlie's story in the Silver Foxes Blue Ridge series. Let me break down the reasons why I devoured this book as soon as the arc copy was sent to my kindle:

1. It's a great small town romance
2. Charlie is sexy AF
3. The chemistry between Charlie and Janessa was so good - like you could feel it
4. The steamy sex scenes kept coming and they were hot! There is a bedroom

Well one thing is for sure, Charlie Harrington aka Mayor McSteamy really is all that and a bag of chips. A 45 year old sexy single dad running a town is pretty much what Charlie's life has been since his divorce. Until he meets Janessa, who is a 43 year old single mom-pretty much divorced but not totally. Charlie and Janessa have a very strong physical attraction from the start (well after he gets over thinking she was stealing from him) and it only seems to get stronger by the minute.

This one was a bit different .. These silver foxes are amazing and the fact they are all brothers makes it even better. This is Charlie's story.. As the mayor of Blue Ridge he has to uphold a standard in the public eye.. When his Ex tarnishes that standard he does all he can to gain back the Good Guy image.

Janessa has come to live with her parents and get away from the public eye of her life from her ex husband. All she wants to do is lie low and raise her daughter .. When she meets Charlie it

I absolutely love everything that LB writes. She writes over forty stories that are fabulously good. Charlie and Jan are combustible right from the beginning. Their chemistry is off the charts and their connection is strong. I loved everything about this book. It was sweet but oh so sexy. Really really HOT!

LB writes characters to fall in love with and I fell hard for Charlie. He’s good but underneath is a bad boy waiting to be let free. Janessa is such a fresh air with her independent and confid

If I've ever read a complicated and twisted romance, it's this one.
I felt like I was being torn and tormented just like the protagonists. I sometimes felt hanged, torn and quartered and felt as forlorn and hopeless as the main characters.
It is quite difficult to put yourself in somebody else’s position, and that's certainly the way Charlie and Janessa felt about each other.
Despite their insane attraction, and even though they cannot keep their hands off each other, they struggle to overcome mist

L.B. Dunbar writes realistic and relatable mature characters that experience real life situations that deeply reach me.

The portrayal of Janessa and “goody two shoes” Charlie was refreshing and unique. I loved the fact that they were from two different worlds yet not different in so many ways. Their chemistry sizzled and Charlie added a lot to that. Nessa couldn’t help herself with him. Single parents, each with their own daughters who were the same age and became friends. They each dealt with si

Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oh boy. I have been waiting for the words to write this article. When I picked up L.B. Dunbar’s Silver Mayor, I had no idea what a treat I’d be in for. I mean, I had a feeling as I had loved Silver Brewer (Giant’s story) and Silver Player (Billy’s romance). Dunbar has this way of creating compelling silver foxes whose life trajectories feel very similar to my own 40-ish something existence. What I didn’t realize was that she was saving some of her best for last.

Harrington brothers are a sexy bunch of handsome siblings. Mayor is Uptight. Rigid. Goody Two-shoes Charlie. but don't let it fool you, it's an image. He's got a butt slapping, hair pulling, hand tying, kinky side to him that will leave you panting for more...

Being that I am part of the over 40 crowd I have a total thing for Sliver Foxes. The Silver Mayor was my first exposure to the Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge series. Charlie is the town Mayor of Blue Ridge. The very good looking, charming single father of Lucy and seems to be a very likeable good guy.
The meet cute for Charlie and Janessa is unique and spectacular. Charlie is completely lost for words when he walks into his bedroom and finds a woman standing there with his grandmother’s ring on her

I enjoyed LB Dunbar's other series of over 40 romance novels, and Silver Mayor is part of the series that is a spin-off of that series. I have enjoyed reading her books of people who have experienced a lot of life finding that special someone in a new season of life. Charlie and Janessa are entering new phases of their lives, and their meeting is leading them in new directions.

Both Charlie and Janessa have experienced betrayal at the hands of spouses more interested in themselves than in their m

Silver Mayor is the 3rd book in the Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge series and is the story of Charlie Harrington and Janessa (Nessa) Cruz. Set in Blue Ridge, Georgia, this is a wonderful small-town romance that is hot, a little bit sweet and engaging to read.

I haven't read one bad book in 'The Silver Foxes of Blue Ridge' all stories are unique and toe curling good. What I particular love about this series is that the men are older and the woman are not that much younger but the passion and the hotness still shines through even if you are in your forties! Thank god for books like this one where as in that age bracket can still dream of a 'Silver Fox' for them!

Silver Mayor by L.B. Dunbar will take you to an inspiring, heartfelt and sinful journey of two imperfect people who are scarred but not beaten by the battle called life.

Janessa Cruz has moved in with her parents in Blue Ridge with her girl Vega after a messy divorce with her celebrity athlete husband Richard. She is looking for a new beginning and doing something meaningful in this new phase of her life. Charlie Harrington aka her parents' employer aka Mayor of the town was not in her equation.

Returning to Blue Ridge was therapeutic. I’ve loved all the Harrington brother books, and Mati’s too. They are a very special family who always make me treasure small towns and everything they have to offer. Silver Mayor was sweet and seeing Charlie finally get the love and the life he deserves warmed my heart. He is also a bad boy and very inventive when it comes to claiming what he wants. His creativity should warm you up, too.

Charlie Harrington is the mayor of his town, and is always the one to do the right thing. He's a local, single father of a precocious 10 year old daughter named Lucy, and is the youngest of the Harrington brothers. He's always the good guy - clean cut and mostly scandal free.

Janessa, or Jan, is new in town after a recent split from her celebrity baseball star husband, and living with her parents (who work for Charlie) in Charlie's carriage house. She's trying to lay low, and since she walked aw
