Title: Her Best Friend’s Dad
He’s just as hot now as he was when I was a teen; maybe hotter. He’s also rich and powerful, and when he offers me a job working under him at his company… I can’t say no. I don’t WANT to say no.
All our flirting is bad enough–we can’t get caught, my best friend would hate me–but then we go too far.
Hiding our relationship was one thing…
How the hell do I hide a baby?Penny Wylder’s first full length novel! It’s all the fun and filth you expect, just a lot more of it! This story has a romantic core and a happily ever after that will make you melt.
It isn’t proper for me to want my daughter’s best friend, a woman I’ve watched grow into an astonishing beauty. There is just something magic about Lia, something that makes my whole body throb with the need to get closer. She could easily become addictive. I know I should resist any temptation affecting me this strongly, but then I had to go and hire her.What the fuck was I thinking? I am going to lose my mind, or at least my promise to myself to never sleep with an employee. Maybe that’s why the second thing I did after Lia left was call Jean last night. If Lia is my employee, I can do my damnedest to keep my rule. It would give me a buffer against the feelings that are already going well beyond lust and into a dangerous territory from just one encounter. Lia makes me hungry. It is more than lust; it is the hunger to provide for her, not in a paternal way, but to see that all her dreams are made reality. I know that Jean is not the nicest to her and never has been, and if it wouldn’t make things worse, I would throw my weight around as Jean’s boss to fix that. Jean is a great member of the R&D team, but not so much that I would be sad to see her go if it meant making Lia happy. It’s an employer’s market right now with more applicants than jobs. She would be easily replaced.
It is a dangerous move, I know, to bring Lia in as my secretary. I know she is the forbidden fruit, and that maybe this is my mid-life crisis starting to hit me, but I want her. “I need her,” I tell my reflection. “I have to have—”
“Mr. Huntsworth, your new office assistant has finished with human resources.” My chief of security sounds amused as his voice plays from the speaker on my desk.
She’s on her way up. The thought repeats itself in time with the aching in my cock.
“You wanted me to call you when she was being shown her way to the executive office floor.” The line goes silent. My fingernail catches on the red disc of a call button beside the vanity in my bathroom. I press it, wait for Brian to answer, and then thank him for the notice. There’s no time for me to get my libido in check, so the best I can do is sit down at my desk to hide the reaction Lia evokes from me.
I wait at my desk—one minute becomes two, and then it’s soon five minutes before I hear muffled voices outside of the security clearance down the hall. I try to focus on the paperwork in front of me. The chirp of a badge being swiped lights up a blue LED on the panel beside my phone, giving me a warning that someone will be entering. Only a handful of people have clearance to get in here, and most of those require the security guard in the hall or someone inside to buzz them in. I look up.
Lia stands before me, shifting her weight from one foot to the other. “Hi.” Her voice trembles before she steels herself and repeats it more surely. “Do I call you Mr. Huntsworth?” She has her head tilted down, and she looks up at me through the sweeping edge of her bangs. Her lips part, and the tip of her tongue glosses over them. She’s nervous, and I selfishly hope it’s because of me.
“Beck is fine unless I happen to be in a meeting. ‘Sir’ works too,” I tease.
Lia blushes before rolling her eyes. She even does that artfully. “Thank you for the job,
The way she says my name makes my cock throb. “I should be thanking you for accepting it, Lia.” I stand and offer her my hand. Her fingers are cool as they slip into my palm, and the shake we share is anything but innocent despite the chaste touch. I want her grip to be lower and firmer, and with the quick dropping of her eyes, I sense that her thoughts are moving in the same direction.
Her Best Friend’s Dad by Penny Wylder
Tanya Rae’s rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have been getting tired of all the taboo type romances. So, I was skeptical about reading Her Best Friend’s DAD. But, after reading the blurb I felt I wanted to read this book. This book wasn’t real long and it is stated to be Penny Wylder’s first full length novel. I don’t know how many pages but, it doesn’t take too long to read.
I enjoyed Beck’s and Lia’s story. Beck is Tasha’s father and Tasha is Lia’s BFF. Lia’s stepmother Jean, isn’t a very nice person. After-all aren’t all stepmothers supposed to be evil? Jean doesn’t make it easy for Lia to live at home. Lia stays a lot at her BFF’s. I won’t say more because I don’t want to give a spoiler.
Is it bad that I enjoyed this taboo book? It is a hot and steamy book!
I loved the connection that Beck and Lia have together and there is an HEA!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Her Best Friend’s Dad by Penny Wylder Even as a teenager Lia has had a thing for her best friend’s father. She has went as far as to promise her friend she would stay away from him. But time and situations have a way of making a person go against a promise they had all intentions of keeping. Lia had went so far as to move away but circumstances brought her back home. Now her only sanctuary from her verbally abusive step mom in her best friend’s dad’s garage and to compound the situation her step mother has gotten her a job working directly for the man of her dreams and lust. I really enjoyed this book. The subject matter being taboo makes for a good read. This one did not disappoint. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. It also helped that the dad was sexy as sin and their sex was hot. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I give it 4.5 stars.
