Review – California Dreamin’ by Saffron A. Kent

52305974. sy475

Everyone thinks Dean Collins is too old for Fallon Blackwood. Her parents, her friends, even Dean himself.

In fact, he wants her to date guys her own age. But Fallon doesn’t care about that.

All she cares about is that she can’t take his eyes off Dean, her neighbor, her best friend, the guy who taught her to ride a bike and to climb trees.

All she cares about is that sometimes Dean can’t take his eyes off her, either. And that sometimes he looks at her like he wants to kiss her.

So it doesn’t matter that he’s thirty-two and she’s eighteen.

All that matters is that they belong with each other, and she needs to convince him of that.

Good thing they’re taking a cross-country road trip together, right?

California to New York; three thousand miles and a love story in the making…

*Featuring Simon Blackwood and Graham Edwards from ‘The Heartstone Series.’

**This is a STANDALONE NOVELLA. It was released as a part of Mixtape Anthology. Since then, it has been revised and expanded and re-titled.

Saffron A. Kent’s sexy, forbidden, age gap romances are my jam, and even though it was a novella and much shorter than her other books, I loved California Dreamin’!

   Dean and Fallon’s story, though shorter than I would’ve preferred, was amazing from beginning to end, and I loved every single second. It was a fun, sexy, forbidden, and swoon-worthy journey, and I’m so glad that I read it.

   The characters were wonderful. I loved Dean, Fallon, and all of the other characters that made appearances. Dean and Fallon were perfect together, and I loved their personalities and the deep connection and friendship they shared. Dean and Fallon’s chemistry was super hot, and I loved how their relationship progressed throughout. I also loved all of their banter and interactions with each other, and was very happy with the outcome to their love story.

   California Dreamin’ was a sexy, forbidden, swoon-worthy, age gap standalone romance novella that you don’t want to miss! I loved Dean and Fallon’s story, and I know you will too. Saffron A. Kent’s books are MUST READS, especially if you love the forbidden and age gap tropes, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for My Darling Arrow!
