Inappropriate Thoughts (Victoria Wilde #1)18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.

Inappropriate Thoughts  
2 of 5 stars false
The first in a new erotic contemporary romance series, Inappropriate Thoughts is a scorching mix of desire, sex, love and slightly inappropriate comedy.
Victoria Wilde's best friend, Jillian, is a disillusioned divorcée and best-selling romance novelist who can't write a chapter without her hunky male heartthrob suffering ED, an STD, or even worse. Brian Nash is a tennis-obsessed, college senior who's unlucky in love and the roommate and best friend of Jillian's son, Rob. After Brian learns he's being manipulated by a college love, Rob offers him a spring break escape to his home in Miami. There Brian meets the surprisingly young and also tennis passionate Jillian, and their shared interest quickly develops into an intense mutual attraction. As they struggle to fight their feelings, they develop a unique super intimate, yet non-physical connection that provides Jillian with the inspiration to write again while erasing Brian's brokenhearted funk. Will the lonely pair continue with this distinctive relationship, actually explore their passion or will they discover all of it is a really bad idea?

This story contains content some readers may find objectionable, including voyeurism, anal play, multiple partners and explicit language.
Inappropriate Thoughts is a more explicit version of another currently available novel. For more information please see the author page.


****This book was part of a blog tour, I received a copy for my honest review****
Jillian is a highly successful romance novelist who is suffering from a weird sort of writers block, since finding her husband servicing another woman in their pool. She has a college aged son, Rob, who is friends with Brian Nash.
Brian is in an unsuccessful relationship, but finds he is stuck on this girl and can't get her out of his mind. Rob persuades him to come home with him over the spring break holidays, the big drawing card, Rob's mom's house has a tennis court and Brian is a lover of the game.
Jillian has had a string of unsuccessful blind dates since her divorce so when her son and his hot friend come home for the break she finds herself, inappropriately drawn to Brian. Brian is equally drawn to his friends surprisingly young, tennis mad mother.
Wild fantasies and inappropriate thoughts from both parties slowly wear down this pairs resistance to each other and they both start to wonder whether maybe a fling wouldn't be so bad.
I had high expectations for this book. The idea of a woman coming out of her divorce and exploring her sexuality with a younger guy really sounded appealing, and it was, to a point.
What got in the way of my enjoyment of this book was the Jillian's best friend Victoria, she was like Samantha from Sex in the City on steroids. And we got too many parts of the book from her perspective for me to enjoy it. I understand from the title that this will be a series based around this character, however for me, the book was sold on Jillian and Brian being the main couple, Victoria and her wild cougar antic's just got in the way of me developing any real feelings or interest in them. I understand that her and Jillian's conversations were probably supposed to be humorous, and a few were, but after a while I just found it annoying. I started skimming and I hate skim reading. There really was just too much going on, too many storylines. The focus for me just wasn't where I wanted it to be.
The pacing of the book was also a little off for me. The first half of the book was really slow and I found it really hard to get into. I hate giving a bad review, especially to a book that I thought I would enjoy, but this book was just not for me.
