For as long as I could remember, Theodore West was in my life as the support system I needed when my parents were too busy building our family’s future.

He offered me shoes to dance on, a shoulder to absorb my tears, and the harsh reality of where my life was leading when I was at my lowest point.

And when the future my parents planned derailed after a statewide scandal, I had no choice but to fantasize about one for myself that didn’t involve them.

But Theo? He was always in it.

My father’s best friend.

The man who would undoubtedly end me if I didn’t end him first.

Just in case you all have been living under a freaking rock and don't already know...Theodore “Theo” West is all MINE (of course right alongside our fierce leading lady Adele “Della” Saint James and my girl Barbara AKA the incredibly talented author, B. Celeste)! I put my FIRM claim on this sexy as sin older man before I knew anything about him and I am so glad that I did because I am head over heels in LOVE with him! This is my one and only WARNING that you all better back the F*CK off MY man. Now that we got that FACT out of the way, I can tell you all about one of my favorite reads of 2020!

Color Me Pretty is a sexy as sin age gap and father's best friend romance that captivated every inch of my soul with the perfect amount of angst that left me swooning the entire time I inhaled all the words. I have been addicted to B. Celeste's words since before she was B. Celeste (back when she was writing under Barbara C. Doyle) and I have got to tell you that she continues to surprise me every FREAKING time. Her writing is beautifully flawless and gives me ALL THE FEELS as I find myself deeply lost among the pages. Her characters always manages to invoke intense emotions that I never experienced before and has me feeling EVERYTHING.

Della and Theo's love is raw and emotional, it's the kind of story that will tug on all of your heartstrings. They had this invisible force pulling them towards one another and I am so happy that Theo pulled his head out of his ass before he lost Della forever. These two were so perfectly matched and that forbidden age gap left me swooning...especially during those sexy time scenes. These were some of the hottest scenes that we have read from our girl B. Celeste and I could read them over and over again FOREVER.
