BIRTHDAY GIRL by Penelope Douglas @PenDouglas #Review #Giveaway #NewRelease #TheUnratedBookshelf

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 nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight. 
And her boyfriend’s father. 
Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house. 
*BIRTHDAY GIRL is a stand-alone, contemporary romance suitable for ages 18+.
I went into this story already knowing that I was going to love it. This author is an exceptional writer, and her stories are unforgettable. Every time. 
I was not disappointed, and all of my expectations were exceeded. Jordan and Pike had amazing and super intense chemistry. They were instantly and constantly drawn to each other. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. 
I want everyone to read this story, because it’s absolutely fantastic. If you like underdogs that overcome massive amounts of personal angst to find their happily ever after then you will love this book. It delivers suspense, angst, romance, and moments that make you giggle. Read this amazing book ASAP. It’s definitely one of my favorites that I’ve read this year. 
You will also never look at a loofah the same ever again, and definitely not without giggling a little bit.
