Ava Sinclair has a new Daddy for us to read, and I am totally here for it. Silver Daddy is a really heavily emotional book, more so than some of her others, I think. Don’t get me wrong, I think that they all have a lot of emotion in them, but there is huge emotion in this one.
So, here’s how this one goes. Morgan is a 20-something who has made a whole lot of mistakes in her life. She’s currently living on a fraying shoestring, being reminded regularly by her bitchy landlady that she is only there because of her landlady’s “Christian charity”. Then, her landlady tells her that she is getting a new tenant on the other side of the duplex, and if Morgan screws up and this guy complains too much, she’s gone.
Gavin is a lovely Scottish gentleman who is definitely in the silver fox category. In my head, he looks just like Jeff Goldblum, because yum fucking yum. He has been a travel writer, and now he’s ready to settle down. He’s decided that he wants to settle down in a small US town that reminds him of the villages where he grew up. And he just happened to rent the other half of the duplex where Morgan lives. Before he even meets his new neighbor, the poisonous landlady runs her mouth and tries to pour poison down his ear about her.
I really didn’t like the landlady, can you tell? I also don’t like Chloe. I’ve had friends like that. They just live to see how miserable you are.
I feel both sorry for and frustrated by Morgan. Sorry for because I’ve been that person. Not that I’ve had some of the troubles she had, but I’ve been the person who was living right on the edge. It is just so frustrating, exhausting, stressful, and terrible. It’s so hard to be there, and you don’t realize how hard it is until it gets to the point where you aren’t there anymore. I’m frustrated by her because I think that she is a little inconsiderate, and she’s willing to take some short cuts that she might not otherwise have taken, mostly because she’s desperate. I do like her though because she keeps trying, even when she’s in that terrible spot. She has a real strength that she just has to dig down and find.
I like Gavin, most of the time. He’s really caring when it comes to helping Morgan. He wants to help people, especially women, to be the best them that they can be. You know, like a good Daddy does. That’s pretty cool. I did think that he was a little high handed to start off with when it came to Morgan, but not overly so, because, well, Daddy Dom. So, there’s that.
I love the connection that Morgan and Gavin have. It is just very tangible and all-encompassing. It is really touching.
I love when Morgan shows her true backbone and puts people in their place. It made me really happy for her and she did it without being mean or anything. It was great.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
