Review – Dreams of 18 by Saffron A. Kent

Violet Moore is in love with a man who hates her.

Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.

On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself at him, causing a huge scandal in their sleepy suburban town.

Now everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared. Rumor has it that he’s been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone and in isolation.

But Violet is going to make it right.

She’s going to find him and bring him back.

No matter how cruel and mean he is, how much he hurts her with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won’t give up.

And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body, touching her, feeling her skin…

The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually – again.

Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you?

Even though that’s all you ever dream about.

Dreams of 18 was a sexy, edgy, angsty, forbidden, and swoon-worthy age gap standalone contemporary romance from Saffron A. Kent, and I absolutely loved Graham and Violet’s story!

   Saffron A. Kent is the queen of forbidden romance, and I loved the story she created for Graham and Violet in Dreams of 18. It was definitely unconventional, but I thoroughly enjoyed this sexy and forbidden romance from beginning to end and won’t soon forget it.

   Graham and Violet were wonderful yet quirky and sometimes confusing characters, but I ultimately fell in love with them and enjoyed going on their journey. Graham and Violet’s chemistry was off-the-charts HOT, and I loved how their relationship progressed throughout. Graham and Violet’s romance was definitely a slow burn, but once that spark ignited, it burst into flames and stayed on fire. Graham took a while to warm up to, mostly because I couldn’t get a good read on his character right away. I wished there had been more chapters from his POV to better understand his thoughts and feelings, but I ended up loving him so much and how he treated Violet. I was honestly jealous and wanted my own Graham. He was definitely a swoon-worthy alpha, and I absolutely loved it. I also loved Violet and immediately connected with her, even though we didn’t have totally similar characteristics. Graham and Violet were truly amazing, and I was very happy with the conclusion to their forbidden love story.

   Dreams of 18 was sexy, angsty, swoon-worthy, edgy, and forbidden, and I loved the storyline and characters Saffron A. Kent created. Graham and Violet’s story has been one of my favorite forbidden romances from this author, and I can’t wait to read more!
