Review: Act your age by Eve Dangerfield

descriptionJust because Kate ‘Middleton’ McGrath, wants a man to call ‘daddy’ in bed doesn’t mean— 
Oh, you stopped reading. Cool. 
Kate gets it. Kinks aren’t for everyone. Hell, they’re probably not for Mr. Henderson, her grumpaholic boss. She really shouldn’t have crush on him, but the man is just so goddamn stern. Sure, a lot of that comes down to ‘being her boss,’ but still, it feels like there might be something there. 
Tyler Henderson is a golden boy who’s lost his shine. He’s old, his dream career is over, his fiancée’s left him. Now all the former firefighter is to try and bury his troubles in paperwork and hard liquor. He says ‘try’ because he can’t get Middleton out of his head long enough to wallow properly. He’s not going anywhere near the girl. HR issues aside, he’s done with sweetness and things don’t come sweeter than a cupcake-baking engineer who knits her own hats. 
A case of mistaken identity causes Kate and Ty’s attraction to give way to blistering sex. They have more in common—and more to lose—than either of them realized. When it comes to unreasonable attraction you can rarely change your mind but can you act your age?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the moment I heard talking about Act your age, I knew I wanted to read it. The blurb is kinda intriguing. Going all in with the "Daddy" play and then changing the vibe of the blurb was bold IMO. I saw the book everywhere on social medias a little before its release and when the author asked me to review, I couldn't say no.

"Daddy" roleplay or play has NEVER been my thing. I read three books with it in it if you count this one. I DNFed one and enjoyed the second so I had no idea how I would react. I must admit that the author makes a great job explaining this particular aspect of the book. Being told in third pov, it gives the idea another perspective and makes it quite natural; even hot sometimes. Yep I actually said that.

The characters were extremely well developed. There are lots of inner thoughts and lots of details. You'll get to witness what Ty & Kate feel every step of the way and it's without a doubt the strength of the book. Ty & Kate are complex characters and their situation doesn't help. Being colleagues and having an age difference are already an obstacle for their relationship. If you add the fact Ty has commitment issues & Kate has some personal issues ,you'll have to discover when reading, you can say that them together is a little doomed from the start.
I particularly loved Kate's growth throughout the book. You get to see how she becomes more confident and change from shy girl to the one who stand for herself.

Ty was a man that immediately captured my attention with his alpha male tendencies and his tortured soul. I wanted him to realise the love he has for Kate sooner. I would have love more of them happy together a little more than what we had by the end of the book.

With Act your age, I've discovered a new author - to me - and I'm thrilled to go through several of her books I've already added in my TBR when I get more time.
