I am meticulous. Structured. A single father.
I obsess over things and crave control.
And when a hot, feisty little woman throws a wrench in my carefully laid out plans, I lose my mind.
My every thought revolves around making her bend to my will—until they become less about her doing things my way and more about just her.
My name is Trevor Blackstone.
I am an obsessive, complicated, demanding man.
People may not understand me, but it doesn’t stop them from wanting me.
Four Fathers Series by bestselling authors

Four bestselling authors.
Four different stories.
Four weeks in April.
One intense, sexy, thrilling ride from beginning to end!
I picked this one up mostly cause I was hankering for an older male / younger woman romance (yes I do get cravings regarding my reading preferences. Yes, I am weird like that!) – and the blurb of the book had me hoping for a nice and quick read.
What it actually was a quick read.
I liked Lucy; she is feisty, a little naïve yet totally a match for any man in her life; especially her douchebag of a neighbor hell bent upon buying her grandmother’s place to raze it down.
Trevor, on the other hand is the douche\bag neighbor who wants the cottage next door; just so he can get a better looking one up instead of an eye sore – he is a math prodigy and his mind only works in numbers; and this was about the only interesting facet of his personality. He is a jerk, arrogant asshole who doesn’t really change his colors even till the end of the book. And even though I really love falling for Alpha Males, he didn’t do anything for me, sadly and I really kept my hopes up till the end.
There is an instant attraction between Lucy and Trevor, even with their huge age gap – and one that culminates in a physical relationship right off the bat; which honestly would have been fine, if there had been a little substance to their relationship and when it was introduced, it was mostly due to the misunderstanding.
This would have been an amazeball reads; if it had been dealt with a little more finesse.

Being Sunday, I decide to take a break from memory lane. I snatch a worn historical romance paperback from Gran’s bookshelf and slide into my brand new white bikini. Grabbing my towel and a Mike’s Hard Lemonade from the fridge, I head out back.
The sun feels amazing on my skin. I inhale the breeze, tasting the salt of the ocean on my tongue. I drop my towel on the lawn chair and get comfortable. My shades are down, and my book is ready to be dominated.
“This is nice,” I hum to myself, lifting my lemonade and taking a nice sip.
And out it all repels as I spit and choke on it.
I knock my sunglasses halfway down my nose as my eyes threaten to fall out of their sockets. Where in holy heavens did he come from? The half-naked man leaning on his balcony across the way. My tongue about falls out of my mouth. Is that Numbers? And holy shit, when did he get so much muscle? I’d call him fit, but that’s not fit. That’s like, “Hi, I eat muscle for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now I’m just all muscle.”
I wipe at my chin, unsure whether it’s lemonade splatter or I’m drooling. I’m probably drooling. I wasn’t paying attention to much of him yesterday when he was acting all crazy on my front step. I just wanted him gone. To be honest, while he was babbling, I was trying to dig in the back of my brain for my old high school karate moves in case he tried something on me. Looking at him now, I wish he had.
He lifts his hand, threading his large hand through his hair and dragging his fingers down his hard chest covered in a dusting of hair. “Oh boy, where’s that hand going?” I mumble, licking my lips. Oh yeah. I see where this is going. Yep, oh yeah… Did I just moan?
Oh, hell yeah I did, but it’s so worth it. His hand dips down into his board shorts and he adjusts himself. Feel free to pull them down. Show us the goods, I think, mentally visualizing just how big his junk is. He’s a pretty big guy. Big hands. Theory says, and all.
Watching him fondle himself in all his hot glory, my curiosity piques. How old is he really? He sure had a reason to take offense by my calling him old. He certainly doesn’t look old. He surely looks a zillion times hotter than Jimmy, and he was only twenty-eight. I’m not an age wizard, but if I had to guess, I’d say late thirties, early forties. Definitely a bit out of my age range. Why? No idea. No real reason screaming stay away. Well, besides the major one being he wants to evict me, tear down my Gran’s life of memories, and probably build a gym in its place.
Yeah, that’s a good enough reason.
It also reminds me it’s the guys who look appealing on the outside that usually turn out to be dicks on the inside.
