Publisher's Summary

I’m just playing with you, Danny. 

Danny has been harboring a secret crush on his dad’s best friend for years, and when he finds himself helping Jordan with some late night filing, things quickly take a turn for the interesting. 

I’m starving, Little Boy. 

Jordan should know better, but he can’t tell Danny no. One night turns into two, and two turns into more. Before either man knows it, they’re in a serious - and secret - relationship. 

You always belong with me. You always belong to me. 

Danny is across the country for school, and his mother’s goal in life is to set Jordan up with one of her friends. Tension and expectations are pulling them apart. One grand gesture gone wrong leaves their secrets in the open where they must face the repercussions and the cost of desire.

I’m going to make sure you know how much I love you.

A sweet opposites attract, age gap romance!

This was such a sweet age gap, opposites attract romance!

Danny has had a crush on Jordan for long as he can remember.
He knows his attraction is forbidden, but one chance encounter with the man of his dreams leaves him reeling and drawing him back for more.

Danny and Jordan want different things from life. Will the attraction between them be able to withstand the obstacles that life throws at them?
Can they keep their relationship under wraps lobg enough to figure out what they want?

Christopher Rourke's narration and audio delivery was superb and so apt for this.

Fantastic!!

Danny has had a crush on his dad’s best friend and business partner. Jordan has an attraction for Danny. They have a steamy encounter one night that quickly leads to more. They navigate their way thru Danny moving on to college and Danny’s mother trying to set Jordan up with her friend, but continue their affair that quickly grows to love. This was fantastic, sooo freaking good. Super steamy and sexy right from the beginning. Christopher Rourke did a fantastic job with the narration!!

Daddy Jordan

The Secrets in Edgewood is one of my favorite series of this author’s and I couldn’t have been more excited when these were going to audio. Christopher Rourke was a new to me narrator going into this series and I’m enjoying his narrations so far. He did a great job bringing Daddy Jordan and Danny to life for me. His Daddy Jordan voice was just so perfect, he drew me into their story. I love a good Daddy story when it’s done well, and this one really hit the mark for me. I’m also a sucker for college age, so their story was a must read from the start. I love the care aspect of the Daddy dynamic and Daddy Jordan definitely took care of his boy Danny. It was super hot, filthy, naughty, yet romantic and sweet and I loved every minute of it. The chemistry and dynamic these two had was fantastic. This is dirty sweetness at its finest!

Danny didn’t mean to fall in love.

Danny & Jordan are always a fun read. It was great to revisit them in audio this time. This is a wonderfully naughty dad’s best friend age gap book. Jordan is all kinds of sexy and in charge. A perfect mix with Danny’s sweet curiosity. I love the chemistry between these two. What started as an illicit affair turns into so much more as Danny & Jordan unexpectedly fall for each other in the midst of just having some fun. Danny is off to college, and having a secret attachment at home is not easy. Back home Jordan is steady at work, struggling with his boy being away and friends wanting to play matchmaker. The distance is hard, but they are better for it, as Danny has the space to grow into himself. Their love comes at a steep cost in many ways but in the end having each other is worth everything.

Fantastic

Daddy Jordan and his boy Danny are an absolutely amazing read. Hot and steamy scenes mixed with sweet and loving moments - the daddy kink adds the spice. I like the hidden lovers theme with the drama it supplied to the story.
Christopher Rourke  does a fantastic job as Narrator.  Smooth recording and enjoyable voice performance.  Loved it!

Can't wait for the next

Another great add to the series. These two together are hot, sexy, sweet and a crazy amount of chemistry devouring each other. Loved this as a ebook and the audio was so much better bringing them to life. Great flow and tone for each character and I can't wait for the next.

So Hot

This was such a hot listen. I love Daddy/Boy stories and this one didn't disappoint. Christopher voicing Daddy Jordan was epic. I loved hearing him. Danny & Jordan's love story was great and I totally recommend listening to this.

Their secret relationship

Danny was working in the office of his father's business for a while as he had taken a year out before starting college, he ended up spending several hours with Jordan his father's business partner when there had been a mishap with a large stack of files. until then he hadn't realised that Jordan was attracted to men or what was going to happen next between them...but there was an attraction and neither of them wanted to ignore it.
This is the second book in the series although it works as a standalone without any issues or story crossover. Daddy / boy age gap romance which is hot, thoroughly enjoyed. Christopher Rourke did a fantastic job narrating the book.

A steamy Daddy/boy romance

I didn't like how this story started, but by the end Danny and Daddy Jordan won me over. I think what caught me so off guard in the beginning is how quickly Danny and Jordan hooked up and how miraculously compatible their kinks were. Don't get me wrong--it was super hot to read about all the filthy things they got up to, but I was missing the emotional connection between them. I wish there had been even a couple extra chapters to warm me up to the idea of them together. It didn't help that the first six months of their hookups were fast-forwarded, so any chance of me getting that satisfying emotional buildup went out the window. After Danny went away to college, the pace of the story slowed down significantly and I enjoyed the romance much more. I loved how sweet and pliant Danny was with Jordan while still being very sure about exactly what he wanted from him. Seeing how committed Danny and Jordan were to making things work long-distance told me everything I needed to know about how serious they were about each other. When they did make time to meet up, their passion ignited into such incredibly hot encounters that took my breath away. For a story that rode the line between desperate longing and angst, I was surprised by how maturely Danny's family reacted to finding out about his relationship with Jordan. Danny and Jordan had built it up into this impossible barrier to get across, so when things actually worked out it was such an unexpected relief. I thought the epilogue, set 3 years into the future, was such a lovely way to get a glimpse into Danny and Jordan's "happily-ever-after".

great story, great narration

I love Daddy Jordan and Danny, having read their story a while back I loved being able to revisit them. I thought the narration for the two men was spot on. This is a great story with a father's best friend and Daddy kink tropes.

Amazing!!

This book was brilliant and I highly recommend it!! Falling in love with your father's friend/ business partner is not one if my favorite tropes in romance but it's so amazingly done in this book! The chemistry between Danny and Jordan was absolutely explosive! And the level of love and caring between the two if them just melted my heart . It's a great book, beautifully written with deep and easy to connect with characters and I just couldn't put it down. I loved the side characters too. Especially Tim and Toby. And the narrator was amazing, he really brought the characters to life. Fantastic!

Perfectly balanced story

Story: The balance between the heat, angst, love and desire is perfect in this story! It was an absolutely enchanting tale with amazingly well crafted words and feels.
Narration: Great voice! I think it fit the characters really well and added to the story instead of overshadowing it.

Terrible audio quality

This book has awful audio quality, it sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. Combined with terrible narration with weird accents and hesitant style - this one is a skip. The content is also very kink heavy and not for the feint of heart.
