Chloe has always had a crush for her best friends dad.
Circumstances change and and years later Chloe finds herself helping Theo from spiralling out of control. Things between them change too. They escalate quickly.
They have a whirlwind romance. It's emotional and very gritty yet touching too. I really felt their connection.
Also for the record I loved Daddy Black.
This was a great book, take a chance you might find you like age gap Taboo love Stories. I certainly did.
I don't want to give any of the plot away but will say the last scene I soooo wanted Chloe to open the condo door and find Mr Black the other side of it and for the realisation of their final meeting couldn't possibly be the last.
I really hope there's a book 2 to follow I think there's so much more in store for this couple that's yet to be uncovered !!
Chloe is a loner, with no friends and a less than stellar home life, she is thrilled when she gets a new neighbour and the opportunity to finally have a best friend.
What she hadn’t anticipated was the connection that she was going to feel towards her friend Izzy’s father, Theo.
But in the blink of an eye when his world is torn apart, Chloe knew that she would be the one to catch him when he fell.
She would be the one to help heel his heart and to give him the strength he needed to be not only the father Izzy needed but the man she, Chloe adored.
This is described as taboo, but to be honest I actually didn’t think it was.
Yes, he was much, much older than Chloe but what’s age but a number!
He was her best friend’s father – uncomfortable I get that but your heart has no definition of time, no limit on the age of who it loves.
It was awash with anger, drama, passion and lust but it was sympathetic, empathetic, charming, sensitive and poignant.
Our hearts are meant to love and to be loved, sometimes convention may try to dictate the manner of how we control that emotion but keeping a love like they had contained was always going to be a lost cause.
The author did mix things up a bit and I have to say the ending caught me unaware. It wasn’t at all what I had anticipated.
Chloe Knight first sets eyes on Theo Black when she is twelve years old and welcomes his daughter Izzy into the neighbourhood. Even at a young age she takes note of her new friend’s cool young Dad. Her own parents started their family late in life and Chloe, an only child has been very much alone her whole life but the day the Blacks move into their house, this has a significant impact on Chloe’s life. She finally feels she belongs. She feels needed.
I instantly fell for Theo Black with his tattooed muscles and his hot raring to go bike, yes I could see how he would be to the young impressionable Chloe. This is quoted as a taboo story but nothing underhand happens until Chloe is a young adult. As for Izzy? I would say she is a spoilt but loved child and from the start I felt she was a bit selfish (again don’t get me started on the ending!)
I love forbidden romances and although I would not say falling for your best friend’s father is forbidden, there was a lot at stake for this relationship to be uncovered.
The storyline is totally absorbing and deliciously intriguing that grabs you from the first snippets of awareness. But then a dreadful tragedy occurs throwing the carefully laid barriers being exploded apart. I loved how the author kept the reader second guessing how this was going to end from the very beginning and how new curveballs were thrown in to leave me gasping and wondering how I had not seen that one coming.Read more ›
Shanora Williams went and did it again! I am a die hard fan of Shanora's and her stories and her writing keeps getting better and better. I LOVED Tainted Black! Thank you Shanora for sharing Theo and Chloe's story, it was a beautiful one.
