Penelope Douglas Í Birthday Girl book

Birthday GirlT 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 PIKEI took her in because I thought I was helping As the days go by though it’s becoming anything but easy I have to stop my mind fro “Whatever the birthday girl wants” Friends I really wanted to love this and I still enjoyed it Penelope Douglas is the ueen of writing enemies to lovers I am obsessed with Corrupt Bully and Punk 57 So when I heard she was releasing a new taboo standalone I knew I couldn’t resist one click buying But dare I say? This book wasn't taboo enough for me It read just like a normal romance where the characters have a big age difference Jordan is a nineteen year old girl who comes from a very abusive home Her mother left her her father remarried a not so great person and they live in a very bad neighborhood She is also dealing with the loss of one of her best friends but her and her other best friend decided to move out together and start a relationship Jordan is going to college working at a local bar and she is pretty much the only responsible one in her relationship because her boyfriend Cole just got them kicked out of their home But the night before that happens Cole doesn’t pick Jordan up from work late night like he’s supposed to So she decided to catch a late movie screening of an old 80’s horror movie and she bumps into a guy who finally makes one of her days feel good Oh and it’s her birthday After a great time connecting with this guy they soon part ways because she has a boyfriend she is committed to But they soon realize he is committed to her boyfriend as well because it is his son dun dun dunAnd since Cole just got them kicked out of their residence the only solution is to obviously move in with his dad who she just accidently shared an amazing movie night with You all the Lord is testing me But for real this actually has a really good romance that I was completely invested in I mean yeah this is a story about a girl falling for the dad of her boyfriend but it never really feels angsty Her boyfriend is a disgusting jerk for 99% of this book He not only lies to her disrespects her and hangs out with her abusive ex that puts her in uncomfortable situations but he’s also never there for her And in turn this book never feels like an angsty love triangle where a dad and son are fighting for the same girl; you root for the dad 100% of the time And even though the angst is for sure there this is such a damn slow burn romance “Turns out my dream girl belongs to the one person it would kill me to hurt” And let me put a big emphasis on the fact that Jordan is only nineteen years old and Cole’s father Pike is thirty eight On top of the fact they are both now living in his house rent free Plus Jordan has a really shitty home life and feels like she has nowhere to go I could write an entire review on the power imbalance between these two love interests So please never think I’m ignoring this I just rate erotic books differently than other books I know many of the relationships are toxic and problematic and I completely understand that they wouldn’t be the healthiest andor most ideal of starts for people in real life but I love steamy reads and I rate them purely off my enjoyment But I’m never making excuses for any of the content in this book Content Warnings abandonment talk of physical abuse underage drinking death of a friend and cheatingI will say that Jordan is a very strong character and does have a lot of agency She never read like a young adult and she never felt childish The best part of this romance is that she always stuck up for herself to Pike And she honestly always put her self and self worth first “I should thank you actually I’ve been trying for years it seems to be the kind of woman I admire and all of a sudden I feel like I am that woman now I know I’m worth it You’re just not” I also really loved Jordan’s sister in this I am a big sucker for sibling relationships and Cam and Jordan’s unconditional love was a treat to read Cam never felt shame for her work and always let people know that she wasn’t doing anything she didn’t want to do I don’t know I just really liked her character I also loved that Cam was a single mom and I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if Penelope Douglas gives us a book about her in the future But as I said above this is an erotic romance so I suppose I should talk about the sex in this book I personally always love Penelope Douglas’s writing and her sex scenes always feels like a gift from above Consent was something that was always stressed in this book too so I really enjoyed that considering the not normal relationship There is also a scene in this with mud that hit kind of close to home for me so I really liked that I just really loved the chemistry between these two characters and I may complain that this wasn’t taboo enough for me but the sex was really damn well done Okay on to the biggest thing I didn’t like which is something that’s just personal to me this book really stresses having kids before you’re “too old” and I really hated every time it was emphasized Since Pike is 38 he is very sensitive about having kids because he’s always wanted but like it’s 2018 and people are starting to have kids in their 30s I know that I will not be having kids in my 20s so maybe that’s why it rubbed me the wrong way But I still had hope that this wouldn’t turn into a “everyone should get married young and have kids in their twenties” type story And I honestly probably would have given this book four stars if the epilogue was not included in this book Again maybe this is just me but I almost felt shamed for choose to live my life for me in my twenties and like I’m not about to have an erotic romance novel make me feel bad about myself or my body that will be completely capable to bear children in my 30s Also I will say that I really disliked how this book kind of makes it seem like joining the military fixes your problems Like I obviously support our troops and my dad is a retired marine but I hate when books portray “bad boys” who are sex obsessed womanizing partiers and then instantly fixes all their issues by joining a branch of the military I know a lot of bad dudes that have joined the military and came back to my home town and guess what? They are still bad dudes just with worse haircuts And in turn I kind of didn’t like how this book displayed people who work at strip clubs I mean it wasn’t anything blatantly offensive but it for sure hinted at “you can do better than showing dudes your body” and it was annoying Again let me scream from the rooftops It is 2018 please stop shaming sex workers Okay thanks bye But overall I still really enjoyed this one I read it in two sittings and couldn’t put it down Penelope Douglas is a super talented author and even though I think I like her hate to love romances a little than her standard romances I still completely devour her books Her writing is phenomenal her characters are also so captivating and she always comes up with uniue elements that make me want to read everything she writes Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | Twitch Buddy read with Paloma Kayla Julie Amy ❤
