Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Penelope Douglas comes a new forbidden-love story....

Jordan:

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go. He doesn't use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn't treat me like I'm nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work.

I have to stop this. It can't happen. My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he's probably unavailable. Only Pike Lawson isn't the unavailable one. I am.

Pike:

I took her in because I thought I was helping. She'd cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement. As the days go by, though, it's becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can't touch her, and I shouldn't want to. The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she's becoming a part of me.

But we're not free to give into this. She's 19, and I'm 38. And I'm her boyfriend's father. Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house.

Birthday Girl is a stand-alone contemporary romance suitable for ages 18-plus.

A generous 3 stars …

First half was good, found it hard to finish the second half as it was stretched out, repetitive, predictable … I would skip this one , read Credence instead.

Very enjoyable listen

I was utterly absorbed in this story and there was good chemistry between the characters. Although it’s a taboo subject it was handled well and wasn’t too over the top or annoyingly angsty - just felt real. Wish this author had more books on Audible as there’s only a small handful at the moment.

Enjoyable

Not quite what I was expecting……I just read the summary & was intrigued!
Really liked the main characters & became quite invested in them…..fell a little bit in love with Pike & his voice!!
Well written, can imagine it being a film. Made me really feel what they were feeling & remember feeling like that about people in my past…..only downside was a little predictable.
Didn’t really need so much of the sex scenes but I guess they had their place in the story, & didn’t stop me enjoying it.
Narration was great (Jordan was a little robotic to begin with but eventually evens out), could listen to Andrew Eiden read the phone book in Pike’s voice!!

Great Listen!

Really enjoyed this book! The narrators were great and I liked that the story was told by both Jordan and Pike. The ending was slightly underwhelming, however I’m glad it finished how it did. I’m now away to check out the authors other books!
