Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

Once you read a Kylie Scott Book, You can’t help but love it. I have been a fan of Kylie Scott’s books for a while now. She is the reason I feel in love with rock star romances… so,’s not a far fetched exaggeration when I say that I was eagerly waiting to read this book.

It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time is HOT! There really is no other word to describe a book that has everything we love:
Unrequited Love? Check!
Age Gap? Check!
Freaking hot older dude thats broody AF? Check!
A girl thats Sassy? cause that’s the best way to describe Adele. Check!

Adele and Pete have an explosive, undeniable chemistry. Sure, There were parts in the book that didn’t really sway me… like, come on! Like an older dude won’t notice or realise when a younger girl has an obvious major crush on said older dude?  hey! I love a age gap story but when the older guy acts all surprised AF? nah nah. You don’t fool me mister! hahaha
Then, at times, there is the cliche flows in the story…. BUT BUT BUT BUT somehow, somewhere you, as a reader, really gets into the book and you freaking enjoy it. Plus, there is no denying the love and friendship they have from the very start.
The doubt and questioning comes after you’ve had a few hours of thinking… like I am doing right now. hahaha

I gave this book a 4 solid stars. Why you ask? Well, there is no denying that this book was a very enjoyable read with all the elements I love in a good contemporary romance. I loved the chemistry, I love the age gap factor, the angst and the banter between Adele and Pete….let’s not forget the steamy scenes, ok?

Happy Reading!




It was meant to be a soft kiss. A chaste one, even. 

The minute my lips touched his, however, everything changed. Callused hands grabbed the sides of my face and my mouth opened on a gasp. His tongue swept inside, taking me over. Holy hell. Shoes and purse hit the floor, forgotten. Nothing about this kiss was slow or easy. The man devoured me. Every ounce of emotion poured into that kiss, all of the anger and frustration between us. His tongue was teasing and tasting, driving me wild. Then he drew back to suck and nip at my bottom lip. One hand slid around the back of my neck, the other over my hip to grab at my ass. His hold was firm, a little rough even. He treated my body like it belonged to him and I wasn’t gentle either.

Apparently experience mattered. Because all I could do was try and keep up. 

I held on tight to his open shirt, straining against him, trying to get closer. I’d have crawled inside the man if I could. Turned out that under certain circumstances, the taste of scotch worked for me in a big way. Against my hip, his cock hardened, digging into me. And oh my God, I’d done that to him. Me. How amazing! Meanwhile, my body felt liquid, core aching and empty. I needed him inside of me and it seemed like I’d already been waiting forever.

“Pete. Please.”

“Fuck,” he muttered, breath hot against my ear. 

I fumbled at the remaining buttons on his shirt. My damn fingers didn’t seem to be working. Easier to just push the whole thing upward. Luckily, the man decided to help, tearing the shirt off over his head. More skin was good. And he was so hot and smooth, a thrill to the touch. The solid flesh of his pecs and the flat plane of his stomach. 

He tore at the zipper on the back of my dress, dragging fabric down over my shoulders. A growl came from the back of his throat, a noise of frustration, impatience. I’m reasonably certain I heard the silk rip. I didn’t care. His hands and mouth seemed to cover every bit of skin revealed, touching and tasting me everywhere. The dress got stuck on my hips. Out of the way enough for now. 

He didn’t even bother undoing my bra, simply peeling down one of the lace cups to free my flesh. My breast filled his hot palm as it took the weight. Fingers plumped me, his thumb flicking over my hard nipple. The sting of pain followed by the heat of his kiss made my head spin and my body ache. There was no room for thought as he fed me deep, wet kisses. Slowly, he took us to the floor. No time for anything else. Just the urgent need to have him inside me. 

The hardness of the polished wood was cool against my back. My legs were spread, his body between them. And with his broad chest above me, his weight taken on one arm, he was all I could see. I swear even the insides of my thighs were wet, I was so ready. It would have been embarrassing with anybody else. But this man, he had to know, he had to understand. It had always been him. 

“Pete, I need—”

“I know,” he said, voice harsh and low.
