Dr Dan had me feeling conflicted and I struggled rating it. I initially disliked the first part of this book and then found myself emotionally invested in the second half. At that point this story redeemed itself.

With these K. Webster Taboo Treats you can always expect a hot smutty read that pushes the boundaries and increases the heart rate. And on that level it delivered.

Dr Dan Venable and Lauren meet when she finds herself at the ER. Afraid of being properly diagnosed and ignoring the warnings, her symptoms have her returning numerous times. This is how the come to know one another. Their attraction is mutual and instantaneous yet the early stages of their relationship made me feel uneasy.

My first impressions was that the age gap between Dr Dan and Lauren was significantly too large making for an implausible read. I just didn’t get why this author couldn’t make the age difference a little more realistic…
Dr Dan’s colleague summed them up perfectly :

“She’s eight-fucking-teen,” he reminds me. “I get the whole mid-life crisis shit, hence my badass car, but seriously, man? What could you possibly have in common with a little girl?”

And then the second half of the book kicked in, and BOOM. Instantly the characters and the story-line developed serious depth and it was a game changer. It had me quickly rearranging my thoughts and feelings. In fact the smut became emotional and I could almost forget my misgivings over the first half.
