A Men of Lovibond Series Standalone
Author: Georgia Cates
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 4, 2017
My employee’s daughter. The tomboy. The kid who once did odd jobs around the brewery. That’s all she was… until three years passed and she walked into my office for an interview.
Frankee Dawson is no longer that girl I once called Kiddo. She’s grown into a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman. Very desirable. And that’s a problem. She’s my employee’s daughter. Lovibond family. And too young for me. Too innocent.
I want to feel her respond to my kiss.
I want her body to tremble as she anticipates my touch.
I want to learn all the places that bring her pleasure.
But mostly I want her to know that she’s never truly been loved by a man until me.
Frankee is my intern and under me for the summer. Literally. It’s a difficult secret to maintain when you can’t keep your hands off each other.
This was supposed to be a hot summer fling. Sex and fun without commitment—that’s what we called it. But we were wrong. This is more. I’ve never felt this way about a woman. Never cared more about someone else’s happiness more than my own.
I love her and I’m happy. So damn happy… until a terrible mistake from my past springs forward and threatens to rip us apart.
There are a million reasons for her to leave me. And trust me, she should. But all I really need is one good reason for her to stay.
The parts of the book that focused on Porter and Frankee were interesting, and they were hot. I liked their chemistry and their attraction to one another felt real and authentic.
But, there was a lot going on in this book. Enough that, I think, the central romance was diluted to the point that it became a part of many parts of the story and not the focus.
This was an older man, younger woman romance. As well as a forbidden romance, an office romance, a boss to intern romance and one that was complicated by a woman from the past. This was a lot, and I thought it was too much as there are a lot of tropes and subplots in this, and I felt that a little more attention to a couple of them would have served the story a lot better than a little attention to a number of subplots.
I read this as a standalone, and while I was not the biggest fan, I do think this would be one that fans of the other books in the series would enjoy.
I liked Frankee and I liked Porter. I thought they had chemistry and I enjoyed seeing things from both of their perspectives. The times they spent together were mostly sexy and fun. There were times I felt they were both a little immature, but I expected that from Frankee given her age. I was a bit surprised with it from Porter. I will admit I also appreciated the playlists used in this book.
I must say that this story contained a fair amount of drama that I just didn't see as necessary. The subplot of that drew my attention away from our main couple instead of wanting me to read and figure out how they'd overcome this situation. Again, it just didn't seem necessary to me. There was just a lot going on and I think sometimes the focus got away from our main characters.
This is book 3 in a series but can absolutely be read as a standalone. If you're looking for a quick read with some sexy times and drama I'd say to give Porter a try. I will try other works from this author.

Frankee and I stayed up until three in the morning. I couldn’t keep my hands off of her. Not when she was wearing that sexy-as-fuck lingerie.
I’ve never seen anyone wear anything like that. Sure, I’ve watched porn and seen it on those women, but never on a real-life woman. And never one in my bed.
Frankee is like my very own porno princess.
I gave her six orgasms last night—one an hour. I’ve never done that before. Not that I don’t have the ability. I’ve just never been inclined to.
She doesn't stir. Not even a little. I shake her shoulder this time. “Frankee. Wake up, baby. I have to go.”
She rolls to her back and slowly opens her eyes. “Someone fucked me into next week. You'll have to check back with me when it comes around to see if I can wake up.”
“You don't have to get up, but I do have to go.”
“No. Don't go. Staaaay.” She has no idea how badly I want to.
At some point during the night, Frankee washed off her makeup, and I’m seeing her for the first time without cosmetics. It’s confirmed. She’s a natural beauty and doesn’t need that garbage on her face.
“I wish I could stay in this bed with you all day, but I promised Stout I'd help him move his stuff to his new house today. I was supposed to be there already, but I couldn’t bear to leave when you looked so beautiful in my bed.”
I already know he’s going to give me shit for being late.
“Wait a minute… before you go.”
Frankee dashes to the bathroom, still wearing her porno princess attire from last night. That is one convenient getup. I hope she has more of those.
She returns from the bathroom with her hair twisted into a topknot. I don’t know what it is that makes that so damn sexy.
She wraps her arms around my shoulders and lowers herself to straddle me on the bed. “Kiss me before you go.”
Her mouth is minty. And hungry, based on the way she devours my mouth and neck. “Is this your plan for tempting me to stay?”
Her hands are working to undo the button and zipper on my jeans. “No. This is.”
