Two years ago, Reed Jackson betrayed Calliope Thorne and broke her heart. So she stole his most prized possession – a white mustang – and drove it into the lake for revenge.
Now, Callie is stuck at a reform school while Reed is off at college, living his life without repercussions. Until he comes back. With him comes back all the feelings that Callie has been trying to bury: anger and heartbreak. But most of all, desire. At the sight of his beautiful but lying lips and his gunmetal gray eyes that still taunt and smolder when he looks at her. Whatever though. It’s not as if Callie is ever going to fall for her ex-boyfriend again. Or let him corner her in a bar one night and touch her, kiss her… Neither is she going to kiss him back. Or worse, sleep with him. Because that would make her naïve and foolish. Oh, and also pregnant. And there’s no way Callie is ever going to get pregnant at eighteen and with Reed’s baby, no less. The guy she hates. The guy who taught her all about heartbreak. Who might look like a gorgeous hero but really is the villain of her story. NOTE: This story is a standalone and does not contain cheating.
OMG Guys!! I love me some Forbidden/Age Gap romances and Saffron Kent is one of the Queens. When it comes to mastering the angst and emotional turmoil that only a delicious age-gap can provide she ALWAYS slays it! Her books never fail to deliver all that I want them to be and more. California Dreamin’ was no exception. This novella was a super quick read for me and had everything I was hoping.

When she’s away to college and is going home from California to the East Coast for Christmas Break she organizes a road trip so she has five days alone with him and can finally make her move. Dean knows her better than anyone, she knows they could be perfect for one another and she thinks maybe he feels that way too. She’s just gonna have to seduce him and see what happens. Will Dean give into her advances or will he lay down the friend card once and for all?
Dean loves the Blackwood’s like his own family. Simon and Willow were there for him when his own family wasn’t. Fallon has always had a special place in his heart. When he is fighting his growing feelings for her, he makes a decision that he thinks is best for everyone, but by doing so devastates both of them. When he drives Fallon back home and she’s laying her feelings at his feet will he be able to look her in the eyes and turn her away.
