3.0 out of 5 starsBe fore warned this book is a "Cliff Hanger"
Reviewed in the United States on February 22, 2018
The book would have gotten 5 stars, however; I hate cliff hangers. Especially when your not told up front! The book spends too much time in going over the same things again and again and it has way too many of the similar chapters. Mr. McCormack is one of my auto buy Authors, but I'm sorry this book is not for me! It was not written in his usual excellent style of writing. It spends too much time with the oh poor me's and what do I do now's. Not finding out that it was a cliff hanger till the very end after I had put up with the over expanded re-telling of the same things; that set me off like you can't believe!

This is the best Devon McCormack book I've read. I've loved all the books I've read by him, both his solo work and his work with Riley Hart, but this is by far the best. I was not expecting to feel everything I am for these characters.
Jesse had never been with a man but he wasn't opposed to trying. I loved how once Eric found out that Jesse was a virgin to anal sex he backed off. It was frustrating watching them want the same thing but being unable to have it as neither of them wanted to wreck their relationships with Ty. But it only lasted so long before they were at it again.
The sex was hot and everything I expected from this book. But Eric's issues, along with Jesse's compassion and understanding came at a level I wasn't expecting. And I loved that. They built a great relationship and I was not expecting the turn this book took.
By the end, once I saw the direction it was heading towards I was in tears. I didn't expect that. I didn't Devon McCormack to evoke such a strong reaction from me. I need more of these characters.
1.0 out of 5 stars"You're mine, Jesse, You're all mine."

While I read this book fully knowing it ended in a "cliffhanger" and for the most part I really enjoyed author Devon McCormack's book BFF,BEST FRIEND'S FATHER (BFF, Book 1) unfortunately the second book in this series BEST FRIEND'S FATHER CLAIMED (BFF, Book 2) was a big let down! Mr. McCormack has this bad habit of alluding to things in his books that never materialize. In this book we readers are led to believe that 45 year old Erick Westright and his best son's best friend, 24 year old Jesse are at the beginning of a D/s, BDSM and very kinky (sexually) relationship in book 2 but that never happens and all we get is just more boring, vanilla sex and it turns out that tough guy Eric is just another privileged, whiny, white rich guy and to make things even worse Mr. McCormack leaves us poor readers in the lurch and doesn't even bother to finish telling us Erick and Jesse's story...TWO BOOKs, 606 PAGES for nothing!
1.0 out of 5 starsWarning Cliffhanger and not Stand Alone!

Warning! Not stand alone and Cliffhanger! Cliffhanger! Cliffhanger! I cannot say this enough for anyone wanting to pick up this book. There should be some sort of forewarning that this is not a stand alone book and is the first book in potentially a series of books or at least two. It is not concluded and while it isn't a bad read the ending will not leave you with everything resolved or wrapped up. And the next book does not have a date to when it will be released yet. If you still wish to read this book at least you have been warned and you know the risk. I unfortunately was not and the plot while good is not great enough to make me wish to continue with it when it could have been resolved with potentially a few more chapters. Not a whole extra book. I hope amazon puts some sort of warning in the description, there is nothing worse than an unexpected abrupt stop in what you think should be a stand alone book, very Dissapointing. Don't be caught unaware.
I probably was not as disappointed as other 3-star reviewers because they seem to be well acquainted with the author's work; and this is my first time (no pun intended :)) reading him. So I have no problems with the writing, I enjoyed it. What seemed like repetitiveness to other reviewers felt like legitimate new relationship angst to me. And, after all, this relationship is under quite a bit of stress. Jesse's best friend is the son of his older, gay lover. There's a serious age difference between the two men. And, Eric has very serious baggage.
And THAT is what frustrated & bothered me about this story - at the exact moment the plot is about to get serious, and seriously interesting - "to be continued" - It felt like a slap in the face. I can't say that was the best decision a publisher (or author?) ever made. I will DEFINITELY scope out reviews before I buy another of this author's books. I feel cheated and let down.
I mean seriously, if Eric and Jesse's story was becoming too long ... a few of the sex-n-guilt scenes could have been lost, in favor of one full book. But I guess money is more important. Ha ha, I don't think I'll buy the sequel because, fool me once ... shame on you ... fool me twice - you're not getting a chance.
3.0 out of 5 starsIt was ok but i'd rather not have purchased it.

I was intrigued by the pairing: father and son's best friend. Ty and Jesse are best friends on vacation in Eric's (Ty's father) condo in Mexico after Jesse lost his job and interviewed for a new job. Eric mixes his son's calendar and ends up in the condo at the same time as his son & friend. There's an instant attraction between Eric and Jesse, even though Jesse has never admitted to or acted on his interest in men. Ty & Eric's father son relationship is strained because Eric did not meet Ty until he was 16 years old. Ty's mother didn't tell Eric she was pregnant after they broke up when he accepted he was gay. Ty & Eric barely speak to each other. Ty is called away for work for a couple of days and Eric & Jesse can;t resist their attraction to each other and fall into a relationship that continues after they both leave their vacation fling. They finally tell Ty about their relationship and it blows up in their faces. Ty never wants to see either of them again. We are left on this event.
There is also off book rape of one of the main characters that may be a sensitive subject matter to some people.
I would like to know what happens next but i'd not necessarily want to purchase it.
I couldn’t get enough of this book I rushed to the end wanting to know how everything worked out for the two lovers and damm its me hanging, because there’s a book 2 in the pipeline. Come Devon I really need to read it NOW
