The Pool Boy; Nashville Neighborhood #2
(A standalone within a series)
by: Nikki Sloane
A steamy, summer romance! Troy and Erika lit the pages on fire, they were so hot that I needed to kick up the air conditioning just to cool off!
The Pool Boy is not only a smexy, delicious read, it is a story about who is really in your court when the going get tough. It’s also a story that is more than a hot, steamy dip in the pool….with a boy. It’s about believing in your dreams, and not only that, but finding the courage, faith and trust to go after them especially after being crushed by your hopes in the past.
Erika believes in Troy wholeheartedly when he doesn’t believe in himself. Troy was crushed in college when he lost his dream of playing professional baseball. When she happens upon him singing in a bar, (Erika is a manager/agent in the music industry) she knows a good voice when she hears one. Just because he happens to be “dipping in her pool” he doesn’t want to take advantage, but also has lost the confidence to pursue his dreams. Luckily, Erika has all the confidence for him and knows just where to lead.
On the flip side, when it comes to a relationship, Erika, being a recent divorcee, isn’t exactly the most confident on going forth with a relationship with a younger man, especially when her last relationship ended in a crashing disaster. Sure, she loves that Troy is turned on by her, but how long can that last? She’s just that much older than him. Won’t he want someone his own age at some point? Can she really be everything that he needs when he has a lot of living left to do? Filled with doubt does nothing great for her ego, but luckily Troy really shines in bringing forth Erika’s confidence and renewing her glow.
Together these two are a perfect match both in and out of the bedroom, which made this a very enjoyable read and a perfect addition to my overall 2020 must read list!
Nothing says happy birthday like catching your husband in a compromising position with his boss.
His male boss.
Why, hello, midlife crisis. I’m starting over, but this time I’m doing it right. Or at least I’m doing what I want.
Taking the day off from work to hang out poolside? Yup. Do I leave the swimsuit in my house? Sure.
Does my very hot, twenty-something pool boy happen to catch me naked? Oh, yeah, he does. And he likes what he sees… a lot.
My best friend keeps telling me to have a fling and get back out there. But I’m not so sure she meant for me to do it with her son.
