Book review - Darkest Longing by D.S. Wrights (erotic romance) 5/5 stars

Darkest Longing by D.S. Wrights
Erotic romance 
5/5 stars 


Every family has their secrets.  Some deadly, some dark, some full of longing.

Beth's father John has been to her best friend Lily everything a godchild could ask for: a protector, a friend, a better father than her own could ever be.  Lily and Beth have been best friends since they were born.  They share every secret, apart from one: Lily, who is almost the image of her mother, has never been in love, never longed for a boy, because she feels she belongs to one man only: John, Beth's father.

The alleged car accident seven years ago that put Beth's mother in a week-long coma, did not only take Lily's mother's and Will's wife's life, but took from John his best friend, and first love.  Now, when he looks at Lily, he forces himself to see his godchild, Will's daughter, Beth's best friend and not his second chance for true love.

**Warning:  This book is recommended for readers over the age of 18**

Darkest Longing is an intensely satisfyingly tale of forbidden love between an eighteen year old girl and her best friend's father.  It took me a chapter or two to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put this book down.  The characters are well rounded, realistic and you really feel like you know them. I enjoyed the author's writing style and would definitely read more of her books.

Lily is eighteen years old and has strong feelings for John.  Not only is John nineteen years older than her, but he is also her godfather, her best friend's Dad and he is married.  I know that some people may be a bit uncomfortable reading about a couple with such a big age gap, but I felt that the author tackled this slightly taboo subject and all of the problems that come with this type of relationship really well.  

I don't want to say too much about the storyline as I don't want to give anything away, but since her mother died in a car accident Lily has had a very difficult relationship with her father.  This means that Lily is now spending more time at her friend Beth's house and she has grown even closer to John.  There is a lot of history between Beth and Lily's parents and it was fascinating finding out more about them and their secrets.  I often find it difficult to connect with younger heroines and can find them annoying but I absolutely loved Lily.  John is a really likable character too, and his struggles with his feelings towards the girl he helped to raise are great to read.

This book is really hot, the chemistry between Lily and John is explosive.  There are elements of domination and submission in their relationship which I really enjoyed reading.  The sex scenes are really well written and will leave you blushing.

I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it to other readers.  Darkest Longing gets five sexy stars.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.
