Blog Tour: Review & Excerpt of His Moonflower by TK Cherry


Goodreads →
At forty-three, I've experienced my fair share of love and even betrayal.   That very same heartbreak gave me the gift of two adolescent boys, and I owe it to them to be a good example.
But the proverbial girl next door has captured my attention and has me craving things I shouldn't want. Not with Everly. It’s almost shameful how much of my headspace is consumed by someone half my age.
I may be young, but I'm no stranger to failed relationships and heartbreak. In fact, the last time I fell in love, it almost killed me.
But everything about Adam, the sexy and much older man next door, draws me in. I don't care that he's nearly twice my age or that he has two young sons. I would do just about anything to make him mine.
Can I convince him that age is just a number, or will he shut me out because he's also my uncle's good friend?

My thoughts:

His Moonflower is a part of the Single Dad's romance set.  It is an age-gap romance involving single dad Adam and his neighbor Everly.  I'll be honest, I didn't love this one.  The chemistry was definitely strong between the two, but that wasn't enough for me. I did like that characters separately, just not together.  I'm in general not a fan of ag-gap romance, especially when the younger of the two is so young.  Maybe had she been over 25, I might have liked it more, but she is only 20.  What really disturbed me was Adam referencing noticing her five years earlier and that he waited until she was 18 to be a peeping tom and watch her from his bedroom window.  That really creeped me out.    So, I'll just chalk this up to not being for me.   Check out an excerpt below for a sneak peek.

Medical school might've been a more practical option for me over business school because I'm a very sick man. I should be in therapy, or maybe even prison, for all the despicable thoughts consuming me over the past three years.
Why does she leave the blinds wide open like that at night?
Doesn't she know I can see right inside her bedroom?
I spot the white wireless earbuds tucked into Everly's ears, revealing the reason her upper body sways silently as she folds laundry on the bed. She's dressed in nothing but a borderline translucent white camisole and teeny, pale blue panties. The shadows of dark circles up top and the plump skin teasing me from between her crossed legs below makes me wild inside. Suddenly, she takes a break from folding, rises, and starts dancing on the floor.
Sweet mother of…
It's a seductive expression of a sound that only she hears. I wish I knew what she was dancing to. For now, my imagination plays "I Touch Myself" by Divinyls in order to occupy the quiet space on my side of the window and drown out my breathing. Even though the song playing inside my head gives the perfect tempo for her sexy little shimmy, something dawns on me.
She wasn't even born when that song came out.
Shit! Close the fucking window, Holt!
My insides are shouting at me like the viewing audience warning a woman not to trudge through the woods in a horror film. But like her, I don't listen. I don't know what it will take for me to stop obsessing over this young girl next door—rather, young woman. But still… She's young.
I'm old enough to be her father.
Will Dan have to kick my ass?
Having my bedroom window facing hers surpasses cruel and unusual punishment. I could choose to sleep in a different bedroom. I could also stop peeking through the blinds at night, stealing glimpses of her magnificent body. Instead, I'm like an alcoholic taking refuge in a wine cellar. She is Aphrodite, and I'm a eunuch being seduced by her nightly. Touching Everly is simply out of the question.
How old is she now? Twenty-one?
No matter… She's way too young for me.
I've seen young guys from the neighborhood flocking there over the years, mainly to flirt with her and her cousin, Renchel. For me, Everly was the one who always stood out. She's beautiful, with distinct features that became more refined as she got older. For the life of me, I don't understand why boys aren't breaking down her door.
