Tips for Surviving a Fling with a Sexy Younger Man

First, you’d think as a thirty-something-year-old woman, I’d be immune to Griffin’s flirty
comments and six-pack abs. You’d think that his carefree playboy attitude, or the fact that he’s
still finishing grad school, would deter me.

You’d be wrong.

If you accidentally bang your best friend’s younger brother, here are a few important tips . . .

One:  Do not brag to your friend about how well-endowed her brother is.

Two:  Do not go back for seconds (or thirds).

Three:  Do not let him see your muffin top or jiggly behind. And definitely don’t let him feed you
cookies in bed. Cookies are bad. Remember that.

Four:  Act like a damn grown-up and apologize for riding him like a bull at the rodeo. And do not
flirt with him when he laughs at said apology.

Five:  This one is crucial, so pay attention.

Do not, under any circumstances, fall in love with him.

Kendall Ryan spins the whole friend’s sibling trope on its head in How to Date a Younger Man with an older woman and younger man who just so happens to be her friend’s brother and ten years her junior. I love Kendall’s romantic comedies and contemporary romances, and she consistently turns out the kinds of entertaining, amusing, sexy and heartfelt romances that I love to read.

Layne and Griffin’s story unfolds over several years. From that first spark of attraction when they met, the heat between them smolders and simmers, but Layne, who’s laser focused on finding a man to settle down with, repeatedly rejects the idea of a younger man, especially once she finds out that Griffin is her friend’s brother. She and Griffin settle into a comfortable friendship, and as the years pass, that bond grows, they get to know each other well, becoming the closest of friends.

I loved Griffin! He was so sweet and thoughtful, and he’s mature beyond his years. Layne, a successful attorney who owns her own law firm, can’t get over the age gap between them, and relegates him to the friend zone. I did love how their friendship grew, but I must admit Layne was beginning to frustrate me when she couldn’t see past Griffin’s age to the man he was. Everything she was looking for and wanted in a partner was staring right back at her. When she finally she pulled her head out, though, it was full speed ahead.

How to Date a Younger Man was a steamy, slow burning romance, and once the shift from friendship to lovers happened, I couldn’t get enough of their story. Griffin and Layne’s love story was heartracingly sexy, sweet and romantic, and I devoured it. How to Date a Younger Man by Kendall Ryan gets 4.5 smooches from me!
