california dreamin'

by saffron a. kent

what aurora thought about the book...

Forbidden romances are my addiction and Saffron A. Kent is one of my all-time favorite dealers when it comes to this trope. She is a QUEEN of forbidden romances and I know without a doubt that she will ALWAYS deliver an angsty as f*ck story that manages to captivate every inch of my heart and soul.

California Dreamin' is another classic Saffron A. Kent forbidden romance that gave me all the feels and left me completely breathless as I inhaled all the words of this addictively captivating age gap love story. It seems like it's been forever since I first fell in love with Fallon Blackwood and Dean Collins in Medicine Man and I have been eagerly anticipating their extended happily ever after since reading Guys My Age (a short novella featured in the Mixtape Anthology) early last year. I just knew in my soul that these two deserved MORE and I am so freaking ecstatic that she did just that, even if I still wanted more because I never want their story to end.

Fallon and Dean's story will leave you swooning as you find yourself clutching your chest while your heart beats in overdrive throughout their journey towards a happily ever after. There is no feeling quite like that one you get when you know something is wrong, and yet it feels oh so right. That sexual tension between them is EVERYTHING and that deep connection is all I could ever ask for from a Saffron A. Kent original. She makes you feel things you never thought possible and you will never be the same after meeting her characters. Get ready to become a forbidden romance addict after reading one of her books.

If you are looking for a quick forbidden romance with an age gap, then you need to read this story right now and fall in love with the author's incredibly captivating storytelling ability and character development.

synopsis

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.
