Realization: I can’t keep pretending everything is fine.

Love this age gap romance

This book moved at lightening speed but I loved every page. It was SO hot and Dylan is great with the dirty talk. Who knew?!? Loved this book as much as book 1.
Russell was the perfect match for Dylan. Their chemistry was off the charts!
Loved this low angst love story. Highly recommend.

this was absolutely adorable. I'm not one for insta love but its a novella and it just worked so i let it slide.
so story? well Dylan and Russel get set up on a blind date through a dating app and the relationship starts there. The twist? Russell happens to be Dylan's dad's bestfriend. I love this trope so much.

this was a very VERY quick read and I enjoyed every minute of it.4 stars for me.

Omg YES! I’ve been waiting to read Dylan and Russell’s story ever since I read that epilogue in the first Delaney Duo book. This was everything I enjoy in an age gap and Dad’s best friend book. I just wish it was longer because I didn’t want it to end.

Russell (45) has known Dylan (23) all of his life because he’s been his dad’s best friend for over 20 years. He owns a company with him and has spent holidays with them for the longest time. Neither of the two ever looked at each other in a romant

This is the sequel to Resolution and features a significant age gap.
It's cute. Dylan quickly comes to accept that he's bi and the age difference doesn't bother him either. Not going to lie, it bothered me a little which lost the star. Not because of the years but because Russell had known Dylan since he was an infant. Once I could put that aside I enjoyed it

This was a surprisingly entertaining age gap story, part two of a series, but I had no problems to follow the story and main characters, without reading the previous one.
Maybe the age gap didn't get enough space here, it was more of a "he's my dad's best friend and if my dad finds out he will freak out" story.
Which was especially ridiculous because as it turned out, in the first installment Dylans dad Devon, started a relationship with Dylans best friend Sebastion (of course being half Devon's a

I was so glad to get more of the Delaney Duo! I loved Sebastion and Devon’s story, and I was left needing to know more about Dylan and Russ! I’m a big fan of age-gap romances, and this one delivered with a 22 year age gap. I also love the Father’s best friend dynamic and this one did not disappoint. I love how Dylan and Russ’s relationship unfolded. Their long-distance relationship brought on some super hot and sexy FaceTime calls that left me fanning myself! It was great getting a glimps

Great Age Gap Romance

I loved Devon and Sebastian's story so much in book 1 that I was eagerly anticipating Russell and Dylan's story! It was really good...with a 22 year age gap, a sexual awakening, father's best had some fabulous and very steamy FaceTime calls too as they navigated being located on opposite coasts. It did move at lightening speed, with a lot of things thrown into the story, but it all wrapped up very nicely at the end. I just wish it had been a little longer to deve
Tidak semenarik buku pertama dan rada aneh juga di sini Dylan yang digambarkan sebagai seorang twink itu jadi top dan Russell yang badannya lebih "gagah" dan jauh lebih tua jadi bottom. Karakternya Dylan kurang cocok digambarkan sebagai seorang yang lebih dominan di dalam hubungan mereka. ...more

Loved it!

I loved this series. I would love to see Dylan and Russell get married and more of both couples. A third book would be awesome!
